Tottenham fans mock West Ham ceremony on Twitter, make board plea

West Ham United Gate

Tottenham will follow West Ham in leaving their current stadium in 12 months time.

West Ham laid on an post game ceremony last night dedicated to paying tribute to Upton Park as they said their emotional farewells to the ground.

After 112 years the Hammers played their final game at the stadium, beating Manchester United 3-2 in an entertaining contest.

The post match action was not quite as exciting as the football, although it did at least have the desired effect of keeping supporters' attention and staving off a pitch invasion.

Former West Ham stars Paolo di Canio and Sir Trevor Brooking were in attendance, while Carlton Cole and Marlon Harewood were among the ex-Hammers trotted out.

London rivals Tottenham will undergo a similar switch next year, when they say their goodbyes to White Hart Lane.

Unlike West Ham who move straight into the Olympic Stadium, Spurs will face a year elsewhere, potentially at Wembley or MK Dons, before moving into their new ground which is currently being constructed adjacent to their current stadium.

Will Tottenham hold a post game ceremony after their final match in a similar move to West Ham? Will it be lower key?

Both questions were on the minds of fans, who seeing West Ham exit their stadium, will have realised that in 12 months time it will be them in the same emotional position.

Supporters did have one plea... that the Tottenham board ensure they do not hold an event similar in tone to West Ham's, criticising it as tacky, among other choice words.

Here is a look at the reaction from Spurs supporters to West Ham's post-game show...
