Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Daniel Levy comments about White Hart Lane
By Amir Mir
Daniel Levy has admitted that Tottenham could remain at White Hart Lane next season – and fans on Twitter have provided mixed views.
The club’s chairman revealed in a statement that he is unsure about where the north London club will be playing their football at the end of this campaign.
It was expected that Spurs were going to end their 118-year association with their current home and move into Wembley next term.
Here are Levy’s comments:
“Whilst everyone is eager to know if this is our last season at the Lane,” said Levy as posted by the club’s official website. “We shall only make the decision to decommission our historic White Hart Lane when we have greater certainty on the delivery of the new stadium.”

“We shall only make the decision to decommission our historic White Hart Lane when we have greater certainty on the delivery of the new stadium.”
After a season at England’s national stadium, it was expected that Tottenham would move into their newly built home for the 2018/19 season.
However, it seems a final decision has not been made with supporters providing mixed views on Levy’s comments.
Some felt that regardless of what happens the club will move to Wembley next term, but others were hoping they could spend one more season at the Lane.
Spurs’ Premier League clash against Manchester United on May 13 was scheduled to be their final game in north London.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side, who are chasing Champions League football, are yet to be beaten on home soil during this campaign.
They have picked up wins against the likes of current league leaders Chelsea and Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.
Nonetheless, regardless of what the final decision will be on WHL, one fan stated that he trusts what Levy will do.
Here is a selection of their messages:
I wouldn't read too much into Levy's comments, he's just covering all the bases, we'll definitely be playing at Wembley next season #COYS

Another season at the Lane would be brilliant especially with a couple of good summer signings starting with Dembele fromCeltic

Leading up to their possible final game at their old home, Spurs will take on Watford, Bournemouth, Arsenal and then United.
Their clash against the Gunners will take place on April 30, with fans hoping they can give the Lane a good send off by beating their north London rivals.
