Nearly 70% of Spurs fans may boycott home games if Milton Keynes switch goes ahead

MK Dons

Daniel Levy could be set for more flak from the Tottenham fan base given the plans, according to a newspaper poll.

The idea that Spurs could head up to MK Dons for a season while they build their new stadium may struggle to get off the ground, if a recent poll is to be believed.

The London Evening Standard are reporting heavy opposition to the possibility Spurs will temporarily relocate out of the capital for the 2017-18 season.

With one local business challenging the building of a new stadium a stone's throw from current home White Hart Lane, the process is proving anything but simple.

And with few clubs in London open to sharing their ground, the likelihood of looking further afar has grown in recent months - something that hasn't gone down too well in relation to one proposal.

An opinion poll stated that out of 200 fans questioned on whether they would go to home games in Milton Keynes that season, only 71 (34%) were open to such a prospect.

Though it is only a snippet of the White Hart Lane population, it suggests there is real resistance to any  possibility of a move out of London within the Spurs faithful, while the hashtag #notomk is trending on Twitter.

Stadium MK is a state of the art 30500 seater stadium, and with MK Dons one of the few clubs in the South East of England open to sharing, Tottenham may be forced into accepting what is their only available possibility.

However, given that Milton Keynes is only just sneaking into that 'South East' label, 51 miles out of North London, and also considering the reputation MK Dons have in football having moved and rebranded Wimbledon in 2004, it is unsurprising that Spurs fans are looking to meet with Daniel Levy and voice their opposition to any move there.

With the chairman already under attack for the club's poor start to the season, Levy may find the move a hard sell. What options that leaves for the Tottenham chairman is anyone's guess.
