It was actually concocted as an April Fool's prank by a newspaper earlier this year, but a suggestion Arsenal could allow Tottenham to share their ground has emerged as half-credible.
The topic is up for discussion after a metal company lodged court papers against Tottenham, displeased with their new stadium plans.
Even if Spurs win the outcome of the case, the development is expected to be put back 12 months as a result, affecting their own plan to move out of White Hart Lane in 2017.
Tottenham would then be forced to consider seeking a groundshare in 2017/18, with MK Dons' Stadium:MK, West Ham's soon-to-open Olympic Stadium, and Wembley, also touted as possibilities.
The logistics of fixture scheduling are likely to make a groundshare at The Emirates difficult, but even more tricky to convince, if this non-starter got off the ground, would be the supporters.
The North London rivals are just that, and there is no evidence Arsenal would even be willing to do Tottenham a favour.
We took a look on Twitter to see the reaction to the reports, and it's fair to say both sets of fans are not exactly clamouring to share The Emirates.
The only time spurs are allowed to play at the emirates is when we are knocking them out of the cup or beating em in the league. #afc— Pier.AFC (@Pier_C_1) September 10, 2014
the day we ground share with spurs is the day we die as a football club. #AFC— Calum CC (@chinno90) September 10, 2014
Have no problem with Wembley or The Olympic Stadium for a year. Stadium MK would be awkward but do-able. Emirates? Don't make me laugh #THFC— Joe Simmons (@Joe_Simmons1) September 10, 2014
Playing at the Emirates? So what. Imagine how annoyed the ARSE fans will be. Plus it will get them used to playing in a big venue #THFC— Stuart James (@JedLomax) September 10, 2014
If we played our home games at Emirates we still wouldn't win there ! #THFC— Adam Elliott (@TheAdamElliott) September 10, 2014
I know it's 99.9% not going to happen but... IF #THFC did share The Emirates for 1 season, I would refuse to follow Spurs for that 1 season— Spud'ish (@benngarbutt) September 10, 2014
