    Squirts to ground share?

    might be moving in with the spuds..http://metro.co.uk/2014/09/10/tottenham-confirm-one-year-away-from-white-hart-lane-warn-fans-they-may-not-be-pleased-4863496/

    Tottenham have confirmed that they will be forced to relocate away from White Hart Lane for one season, with home games at MK Dons or Brighton possibly on the cards for fans.
    After Spurs ran into complications with landowners currently occupying the space where the club wish to extend their current stadium, Tottenham issued the following statement confirming they’ll need to temporarily up sticks.
    ‘It is highly unlikely we shall be able to open the new Stadium at the start of the 2017/2018 season,’ read a statement on the club website.
    ‘The Club has revised its construction programme in order to take the shortest possible time to construct.
    ‘This now therefore involves the Club moving away from the Lane during construction for a period of one season, to start at the beginning of a season in order to comply with Premier League rules.

    ‘We are currently undertaking due diligence on alternative stadium options. Consideration needs to be given to several factors, including planning and policing and, importantly, our fans and the impact it may have on the Team itself.
    ‘Clearly all possible options have pros and cons and we are aware that we shall not be able to find one which will please all parties.
    ‘We shall however seek to find the optimum solution for the Club and our supporters and we shall be sharing our deliberations with our supporters at an appropriate time.’
    MK Don’s ground stadiummk and Brighton’s Amex Stadium have previously been mooted as possible destinations, but both would represent extreme travel complications for the majority of Spurs season-ticket holders based in north London.
    A ground-share with rivals Arsenal is another potential solution, although this would be by far the most controversial option.
