Darren Anderton offers his strong view on Tottenham's stadium move, encourages sharing with Chelsea

White Hart Lane 3

The former Tottenham Hotspur winger is adamant the White Hart Lane outfit must remain a 'London club.'

Former Tottenham winger Darren Anderton has offered his strong view that the club should not ground-share with MK Dons during the season their new stadium is being built, according to his regular column for Bwin.

Indeed, Anderton is adamant the White Hart Lane outfit should remain a London club and has even encouraged the controversial option of groundsharing with Chelsea in preference to using stadium:mk.

Anderton told Bwin, after being asked: 'It looks as though Spurs and Chelsea will be ground-sharing at Wembley. How do you feel about that?'

"It’s a tough one. At the end of the day Spurs will be out of their stadium for some time. I’d love to see Spurs at Wembley. It would have to be within London, not Milton Keynes. Tottenham are a London club."

The options

Right now, it appears stadium:mk, Wembley or the Olympic Stadium are Tottenham's realistic options.

The latter might not be as realistic as the other two, due to West Ham United perhaps being unwilling to share grounds - or fans of both clubs not being too happy if they do.

The same problem would present itself with Wembley, although such is the size and quality of the national stadium, Chelsea and Spurs supporters may be willing to take the hit there.

Stadium:mk could be the least controversial option for Tottenham but it means more travel for fans and, as Anderton states, takes the 'London' out of north London club for a season.
