OFF THE SHELF: Take the train to Spurs tube!

    Published: 14 October, 2016

    SPURS have approached Transport for London about changing the name of the nearest station to their ground from White Hart Lane to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, in a move that could cost the club millions in rebranding tube and train maps across the capital.

    The club are currently in the midst of a £400million redevelopment of their ground, and with work set to be completed in two years’ time, they hope the name-change will help bring visitors to the 61,000 capacity ground. The club is also locked in private talks with possible sponsors who would buy the stadium naming rights, but have vowed to respect the club’s history and will brand elements of the new ground White Hart Lane. 

    Spurs travel to West Brom on Saturday defending the leagues only unbeaten record this term. 

    Boss Mauricio Pochettino hopes to have Mousa Dembele back in his squad after the midfielder shook off a hamstring injury that has kept him out of the last three matches. Striker Harry Kane is definitely sidelined as he recovers from an ankle injury. 

    And Pochettino will be pleased to see his internationals come through the World Cup qualifiers unscathed, and that three of his strikers were on target. 

    Vincent Janssen hit a brilliant individual goal for Holland versus Belarus, while Marcus Edwards scored for England Under-19s against Bulgaria. Josh Onomah scored for England Under-21s against Bosnia Herzegovina.
