Team 33 | Heading down White Hart memory Lane with OTB's Spurs fans


Share this article


Tottenham Hotspurs fans may have been expecting to be playing in their new 62,000 stadium by now.

But delays in completing the project that's now costing somewhere in the line of €950 million means Spurs' players won't be gracing the new ground for another couple of months at least.

It's a move that Tottenham hope will push them to the next level commercially with expanded gate receipts, for one, after leaving their long-time White Hart Lane home.

A few of the lads from the Off The Ball office have been regular visitors to the old Lane and Spurs' temporary Wembley home.

So, John Duggan, Simon Maguire and James Hopper joined me on this week's Team 33 to share their memories of the old ground and their thoughts on the switch to the new Tottenham Stadium.

And fair play to James for picking the most Spurs centric room in his house and John for bringing in the jersey.

You can listen to the full chat on the podcast player below or on iTunes as well as the video player above:  

Also on this week's show, Joe Coffey and Killian Woods discussed the way in which TV rights for football have become so fragmented and are increasingly behind pay-walls and how that is having a knock on effect on consumers, fans and viewers:

Apart from Gary Neville and Arsenal Fan TV founder Robbie Lyle, recent interviews on Team 33 include former Man United cult hero Andrei Kanchelskis, ex-England international Carlton Palmer, former Newcastle and Everton left back Alessandro Pistone, Chelsea legends Bobby Tambling and Paddy Mulligan, Dutch legend Johan Neeskens, ex-England striker Darius Vassell, Liverpool legend David Fairclough, former Ireland midfielder Mark Kinsella, USA captain Eric Lichaj and former Everton forward Tomasz Radzinski. Plus our in-depth chats with Tony CotonPackie BonnerNobby SolanoRon Atkinson and Alan Curbishley are still available on iTunes. You can find them all in one place by subscribing to Team 33 on iTunes.
