    Good News but nothing really changed, he’s still going to keep the Olympic option open. The real battle is over section 278, which has to do with transportation which is the true gripe for the board.

    This must be about the Tottenham Hale one-way system which is one mile from the stadium .

    Also as Spurs themselves have said through research done and confirmed by third parties the Seven Sisters Station is were the majority of fans come from.

    haha im not sure if it’s when we pay for it, But im pretty sure we’ve had a little booklet thingy through the door from the council quite a while ago. Either that or it was for the zone expansion zone or something for parking permits needed to park outside your house. I’ll try and have a rumage about and see if it’s still here but i doubt it as most haringey council stuff goes straight in the bin lol.

    Saw this on another forum regarding the 106

    "Apparently there are no major issues in the way of signing the S.106 agreement, which needs to be done by approx. 17th December.

    But no, this doesn’t confirn that the NDP is the choice, and nor will signing the S.106. All the latter will do is finalise the granting of planning permission. Once that’s granted, there are some compulsory purchase orders to sort out. Meanwhile THFC shamefully continues to flutter its eyes at Stratford."

    Well maybe if the council members stop being hard dicks about this then maybe Spurs will stop fluttering our eyes toward Stratford. I am not saying that they need to bend over backwards for THFC however be reasonable realizing that Spurs are the main reason why people would want to go to Tottenham. from what i’m told. :)

    Yeah you’re right steel, the Tottenham area during the week is dead. It would be a massive shame if we were to miss out on the NDP just because of our unwillingness to pay for the transportation upgrades. It is not our job to do that, it should be the councils….however going 50 50 on the costs would surely be a bit reasonable if it means we stay in Tottenham.

    I would say Spurs should cover 2/7’s of the cost. Since the main reason is that Spurs would be using it mostly 1 day a week with everyone coming to and from plus week night games that may be happening. The other times it wouldn’t obviously be used as much. however i think that would be more fair because the club would be showing that they care for the fans as well and would like a closer underground stop.

    Seven Sisters Station ( and almost South Tottenham ) are in the same one-way system as Tottenham Hale Station

    Has anyone got any info on the rumours the Qatari royal family are looking to buy either us, Everton, or Newcastle? David Lammy believes Levy is planning on moving to the OS and selling the club to the Qataris. This would maximise his eventual profit.

    So does Levy really care about what we think, or is the mighty pound note all too consuming if this rumour is true.

    We’ll, I think the cost should be 50 50 whoever were splitting the cost with. TFL want it improved, and we need to get this sorted to more or less keep everyone else outside of the club satisfied

    It should be reasonably easy to create a Victoria Line station at Northumberland Park which could be used as a match day only branch line. As the track is already there as part of the Victoria Line train depot they shouldn’t have to dig a new tunnel.
    I was wondering if anyone else had thought of this?

    Found this which may be of interest …..

    Northumberland Park was opened on 15 September 1840 as a Halt on the Northern & Eastern Railway. It is in Travelcard Zone 3. The station was originally named Marsh Lane after the country lane to Tottenham Marshes on which it is situated. In June 1852, it was re-named Park station, eventually being re-named to its current title, Northumberland Park on 1 July 1923, this is also the name of the surrounding district, in Tottenham, North London. The station is immediately south of one of north London’s few remaining level crossings. The station is a short walk from White Hart Lane stadium of Tottenham Hotspur F.C..
    Northumberland Park Depot of London Underground’s Victoria Line was constructed alongside the station during the late 1960s. A branch line leads to a junction north of Seven Sisters tube station.
    [edit]

    Future

    Haringey Council supports proposals for platforms for the Victoria Line to be built at Northumberland Park. These would be to the east of the main line platforms between the main line and the Northumberland Park Depot[3]. This was supported by the former Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone[4]. It is claimed that this would aid regeneration of the area and better transport links would have to be part of plans to increase capacity at White Hart Lane.[5] However Network Rail have their own plans for the West Anglia Main Line which involves 4 tracking the line and therefore there would be no room for the London Underground Station.

    I know when you expand rail routes in a very busy area, like a stadium, it’s always costly. Because you have to worry about a new issue how are you going to move a massive amount of people in a confined space quickly. Spurs may feel that it’s easier to disperse a lot of fans easier when they’re leaving via Seven Sisters or Hale.

    This is a picture from Google Earth of the depot and even if West Anglia Main Line went to four tracks, then the blue building could be converted into a station.

    As you can see from here, there is plenty of room. At the next mayoral elections, Vote Ken!

    Yeah it could work because people would be able to arrive via High road or Park lane. The only problem I see is that High road is more equip to handle mass numbers of people on it’s streets.

    One set of fans one way and the other set the other way. It could work out that they put the away fans on at Northumberland Park and the train does not stop at Seven Sisters. That would take the pressure off of all the other stations.

    Micky, whether it is brinkmanship or not we still have to take the press stories with a pinch of salt as it serves their own purpose to paint it as a controversy and a means to whip up a storm.

    I absolutely believe we are considering it seriously but I still 100% believe that the NDP is just as serious & still, actually, the priority. You simply don’t go thru all we’ve gone thru, all the money we’ve already spent on the NDP, if you’re not deadly serious about it whereas, at the moment, the OS is nothing more than a bid.

    It will be a travesty for this football club if we were to move from our current base &, I believe, potentially fatal. I’m still not even convinced the League & FA will even allow it as it will mean us seriously stepping on the toes of the likes of Orient.

    There was a quote from sir keith mills in the link that spursman posted regarding our finances and it seemed to be as if the preferred option might be stratford.

    "but Tottenham director Sir Keith Mills insists that the club is serious, “If the Olympic Park Legacy Company decides our bid is the preferred one, then we’ll put all our efforts behind trying to move there.”

    to me that say’s if we get told yes for the OS then we won’t even consider staying in tottenham anymore.
