Spurs take trip down memory lane

The club have wasted absolutely no time in tearing down the stadium after yesterday's emotional farewell ceremony.

THERE was no time wasting at White Hart Lane yesterday as demolition crews set to work less than 24 hours after Tottenham played their last game there. I am not too anxious, I don't think the players are too anxious. We wanted a win so badly in our last game here.

"And at the end the ceremony was fantastic to share with all the legends, the people, the staff, the fans, the family".

"Because with the training ground, the new facilities and the new stadium will put the team and the club in the last level in Europe", Pochettino said.

"It was special out there after the final match, but imagine what it would be like winning a Premier League, or winning an FA Cup or a Champions League or something".

"We were talking a lot".

Stuck behind one of White Hart Lane's inconveniently-placed structure beams, his amusingly bad view is typical of England's older stadiums and is exactly the sort of thing the club's new 61,000 seater will sort out. That is our idea.

The next step is for the bulldozers to demolish the vacated stadium to make way for the new one.

Pochettino, whose team secured a second place finish - their highest-ever in the Premier League, added: "I'm really sad, disappointed, because Chelsea in the end won the Premier League but there is nothing to regret".

Defeat confirmed that United now can not finish in the top four and must instead hope for victory against Ajax in the Europa League final next week if they are to secure a Champions League berth for next season.

The 22-year-old took to Twitter on Tuesday afternoon to post an image in which he is pictured alongside Spurs teammate Ben Davies in the aftermath of Sunday's finale 2-1 win against Manchester United before the bulldozers moved in at the historic venue.

"I am not upset because we had to make that decision", he said.

"You cannot play against Arsenal, you can't play against Man City or Southampton and play four or five kids". It has been an wonderful stadium for us, especially this season having gone unbeaten.

"I can not lose 5-0 or 6-0". We know that if we lose the final we will not play in the Champions League. I did not think we were far short of winning the title but the team broke up that summer.
