Relegation inbound: Tottenham fans react on Twitter to confirmed Wembley deal
By Dominic Toner
Tottenham announce on Friday they will play at Wembley next season – and the club’s supporters joked on Twitter that they will now suffer relegation.
Spurs confirmed on their official Twitter account that they will play all of their home games at the national stadium during the entire 2017/18 season.
They will be using the London ground on a temporary basis as they complete the construction of their new stadium.
Spurs played their European fixtures at Wembley his season and struggled to adapt to the 90,000-seater, being eliminated from both the Champions League and Europa League.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side won just once during their four home games in Europe this season, while also suffering a 4-2 defeat to Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-finals at the weekend.

Spurs are trying to establish themselves at the top-end of the Premier League and are vying for the title this season.
They are second in the standings and are building on their third-placed finish last campaign.
Pochettino has managed to build a strong side at White Hart Lane and they look set to become one of England’s most competitive teams, but will need to adjust to their Wembley surroundings quickly.
