New pictures of Tottenham’s stadium show huge arena dominate houses below
Fresh images of Tottenham’s new stadium show how the state-of-the-art arena looms large over residential buildings below.
The houses in close proximity to the ground are completely dwarfed by the concrete and metal behemoth above.
There is a stark contrast between the red brick flats and layered silvery steel exterior in the background.

Spurs are still waiting for a completion date to be set for the stadium following delays
Residents will have been all too aware of their new neighbour since the start of construction but these images perfectly illustrate the surreal new landscape in North London.
Spurs’ new home is still without a completion date, though the first game could be played in January, following extensive delays to contruction.
But an event designed for 6,000 fans to familiarise themselves with the two podium areas, south stand and club shop will take place on December 16.

Construction on the state-of-the-art arena is still ongoing and Spurs are playing at Wembley
Tottenham currently remain in limbo, playing their home games at Wembley.
Originally, Mauricio Pochettino’s side were due to play at their new stadium from the start of this season but delays repeatedly pushed those plans back.
Tottenham fans and players alike are desperate to move in and put an end to their Wembley tenure.
Danny Rose understands the dissenting voices and admitted: ‘It’s just not nice anymore. It’s lost its… I don’t feel it’s an honour to play at Wembley.
‘We’re all itching to get in the new stadium and hopefully it’s not too much longer.
‘Of course, the manager has said we’re all itching to get in. We’re disappointed it’s taken longer than expected but we know everybody is putting in the hours to make sure the stadium is as good as possible. It’s not that much longer now, so hopefully over the next couple of months we’re going to be in there.

‘We just have to stick together now. We know it’s not going to be too much longer.
‘The atmosphere is a bit flat,’ he added. ‘I obviously sympathise with the fans, travelling further to come to Wembley but it’s the lowest attendance since we’ve been at Wembley. That speaks volumes.’
‘For me, if I was a neutral watching on TV it’s something I would like to see – as long as nobody is throwing hands and assaulting each other.’
