Tottenham Hotspur have updated their plans for a new stadium, and are aiming to build a ground with a capacity of 61,000.

That is less than 600 seats bigger than the Emirates Stadium, which can officially hold 60,432 and that just seems incredibly petty.

The Middlesex club try so desperately hard to better Arsenal, yet still haven’t finished above the Gunners in the league since 1995.

“More fans to boo at half-time and jeer the manager like they do,” said one Arsenal fan when he was asked about the plans.

The general consensus seems to be that Tottenham are simply trying too hard. On the pitch is what is important, and they haven’t matched us there for decades and that isn’t close to changing anytime soon.
