Tottenham may be forced to leave White Hart Lane and play elsewhere for a season due to ongoing concerns over the club's plans to build themselves a new stadium.
While Spurs have successfully navigatedtheir way past a peskycompulsory purchase with the government which allows them to begin work on anew 56,250-seater stadium on a three-hectare site right next to White Hart Lane, the club are still locked in negotiations with one local land owner negotiations that have now been going on for seven long years which have completely scuppered their construction programme.
Tottenham Hotspur have released a statement on their official website notifying supporters that the team will have to move out of White Hart Lane for a period of one season, due to a delay in the construction of their new stadium.
Plans for the 56,250-capacity stadium, which is to be built next to their current home ground, are being challenged by landowners.
Although Tottenham bossed possession during Sunday's 3-0 defeat at the hands of Liverpool, the home side never really looked like they were going to get anything from the match. One shot on target against Liverpool's eight tells the story and a goal from Raheem Sterling after eight minutes quickly killed the feel good factor generated from the win over QPR just seven days previous.
Sky Sports understands that Liverpool have snapped up former Tottenham defender Kevin Stewart. The 20-year-old has come through the ranks at White Hart Lane, and has skippered their youth sides. He made his professional debut last season and has spent time on loan at Crewe Alexandra. Tottenham decided not to offer him a professional deal, at which point Liverpool have made their move.
New manager but same result as Manchester City thumped Tottenham Hotspur for the second time this season to go top of the Premier League.
Back in November City thumped Spurs 6-0, a result that saw the end of Andre Villa-Boas as Tottenham manager. On Wednesday, it was Tim Sherwood's who watched his side get taken apart by a rampart City side at White Hart Lane.
The appointment of Tim Sherwood as manager of Tottenham Hotspur could be the direct result of bigger names that chairman Daniel Levy fancied turning down the vacant manager's post. Following last Monday's sacking of Andre Villas-Boas, several big names were linked with the Spurs job. Midweek elimination at White Hart Lane from the League Cup at the hands of relegation threatened West Ham United very easily could have ended Sherwood's chances for a permanent appointment.

Having beaten Arsenal, United failed to pick up any significant momentum and slumped to a dreadful draw at Cardiff last week, an infuriating result not only because the Reds conceded a late equaliser for the third time this season after letting in late goals against Shakthar and Southampton, but also because it came on the back on a terribly insipid performance.
Hull have levelled at White Hart Lane, with a bit of help from Spurs keeper Brad Friedel. There was more than a hint of farce to the Tigers' equaliser. Curtis Davies' terrible attempted tap-in was somehow heading wide when it seemed easier to score before it hit Friedel and deflected into the net.
Tottenham's manager Andre Villas-Boas took to brave step of criticizing his club's own supporters after their 1-0 win over Hull City. Villas-Boas was unhappy with the atmosphere created for his players at White Hart Lane and was quoted post-match that his side felt like the away team at times (from Sky Sports):
"I compliment the boys for what they did great work rate.

You kind of knew that here was an accident waiting to happen as soon as David Cameron got involved in it all. Asked by the Jewish Chronicle what he thought of the FA's statement last week, which reiterated its belief that the word "Yid" should not be used in any context at a football ground and warning that its use could amount to a criminal offence that would leave fans at risk of being banned and prosecuted, the Prime Minister responded by saying, "You have to think of the mens rea [a principle of law which suggests that "an act is not culpable unless the mind is guilty"].
