Tottenham finally completed their much-awaited move to their new stadium on Sunday against Crystal Palace and Paul Merson couldn’t handle his jealousy on national television.
“Tottenham’s new stadium looks lovely, but does it make them a big team? No. Not even close,” Merson wrote in the Daily Star. “Spurs need to buy players this summer or they will finish where they do this year. That’s the problem for Mauricio Pochettino.”
Embarrassing himself further, he wrote: “Footballers like routine. They are creatures of habit. They don’t like change.
“But suddenly everything has changed for Tottenham’s players. It’s all different. From the way they get to the game, to where they go in the ground, where their families sit, which facilities they use. I don’t think the new ground is an advantage for them at all. It’s going to take them a lot of getting used to.”
