Former Tottenham Hotspur player Graham Roberts has explained on Kicca, that he feels a temporary move to Wembley would be much easier for the club’s fans.
Tottenham are faced with a situation where they are going to spend a season away from White Hart Lane over the course of 2017/2018, with the London Evening Standard having reported that Wembley and the home of the MK Dons are the two choices for a temporary venue.
The Stadium MK may be the easier choice for the club, but Roberts has stressed that Wembley would be easier for the supporters.
“I hope Spurs get to play their home games at Wembley during the development of the new stadium. Wembley is definitely a better option than playing in Milton Keynes as it is in north London and would be a lot easier for the fans,” Roberts explained on Kicca.
Consistent support is vital
It’s not an ideal situation for Tottenham, but the most important thing must be the club’s fans being able to easily travel and follow the club.
Tottenham are a massive football club, with a developing support base but they are still predominantly a London side, with a heavy percentage of their fans in North London and the South East.
Travelling into the capital and using the public transport system to get to Wembley will be much more favourable to the fans than having to trek up to 50 miles to go to a stadium that supporters will point out, isn’t really anywhere near Tottenham.
Daniel Levy, as always, has to think about the financial side of things because it’s unclear how Tottenham will initially be affected by having to build a new stadium at White Hart Lane.
He’s got to get a good deal for Tottenham and weigh up the costs for the club against the need to invest and improve the first team.
Hopefully, the impact for fans will be kept to a minimum.
