Tottenham and Arsenal fans react on Twitter to Emirates groundshare reports

Emirates at Sunset

Fan reaction to reports of a Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal groundshare emerging as a long-shot option.

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.

ESPN reported yesterday that Spurs were considering all options regarding a temporary groundshare, refusing to rule out approaching rivals Arsenal. The Gunners declined to comment.

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.
