News reports that Tottenham Hotspur have complained to Haringey Council about the state of the streets around their new ground. However, despite being the 11th richest club in the world and being located in one of the poorest neighbourhoods in the country, Spurs apparently have no intention of contributing to any clear-up...

Tottemham recorded a recent annual turnover of 306million, with profits of 58million.

Haringey Council, meanwhile, have suffered from 280million of cuts to services over the past ten years.

Presumably they feel the council rates they pay contribute to the cleaning.

I used to live on White Hart Lane, and that area certainly used to be a disgusting mess, and I think the original 'Live of Grime' TV show was set around that area. The council tax also used to be one of the highest in the country too, so I'm convinced it's entirely down to the levels of council funding.

To be fair though, I thought the area had dramatically improved the last time I went (last year), and that was possibly partly down to the redevelopment of Spurs' ground.

At least March until they move in so why not just make a statement saying they are staying at Wembley for the rest of the season rather than dash the hopes of fans yet again.

From Spurs, Wednesday:

We have now received a post-Christmas/New Year update from the contractors involved in the critical safety systems at our new stadium.

The past month has seen remedial works take place, software issues resolved and corrected safety equipment installations increase. Testing has also continued.

We are now liaising with the contractors and building control at Haringey Council to determine a schedule of commissioning, building test dates and building control sign-offs, along with formal test event dates.

Given the time required to deliver these and the test events, we can confirm that our Premier League matches against Watford (30 January), Newcastle United (2 February) and Leicester City (10 February) will take place at Wembley Stadium.

The 51,000 capacity cap will apply for these fixtures.

Their next home league game after the Leicester one is the North London derby...
