I think this is a similar thought process to a lot of supporters around the 40-60 age group

Thousands have given up with Wembley and will reassess their priorities and love of Tottenham/Football once we move into the new ground

For many of us this upheaval has meant being away from WHL for the longest time in our memory and it’s been a really weird time for us

If you’ve been going week in week out somewhere for 10/20/30/40 years + this type of enforced absence makes you question things

Add that to the fact that the game and everything around it is now a million miles away from where it was when we first started going and that only makes the thought process even more challenging

If this new ground is as amazing as we all hope and the atmosphere created by US is instantaneously fantastic then all us old/oldish/ancient gits might fall in love with our beautiful game all over again
Truly assessment is being made from my end, was so excited to be a season ticket holder. Went to games last season, not been to a single this season. Gladly taken the refunds but as the season is progressing, I am losing something in me, probably the excitement is disappearing, the competition for success is fearsome this time around. Our squad seem to be stale, and all the talk of poch to united is just not worth my energy, effort like previous seasons.

Maybe being in a new stadium might change things but who knows.

I’ve been going for around 20 years.

I think it’s more the sense that we don’t intend to progress on the football side that is detracting from the excitement.

We leave ourselves short every season and the the bottling, injuries, players going to bigger club narrative returns like clockwork.

Deja Vu

I don't get this. We've progressed over the last twenty years and massively in the last 10. We are constantly in the top four now and we have not sold a big player since Bale (i don't count walker) . As for bottling, injuries and whatever , we are punching above our weight and people should be aware of that. Spurs are progressing differently to the other clubs as we are not going around splashing cash.

I'm certainly excited watching spurs and seeing us fight it out with the big boys in the premier league and the champions league. It was only last season we beat Real Madrid and Dortmund when everybody said we had no chance.

I remeber. I guess I just found it all about more exciting then. Perhaps I’m just still in a funk after a defeat!
You’ve been through the bad times like a lot of us, giving it up during the best period we’ve had for 35 years would be madness.

It’s not the same as it was a couple of years ago but next season in the new stadium will be amazing.

I expect is to be a bit of a white elephant to be honest. Without top players, fans will not want to pay the highest season ticket prices in the country. We are the new Arsenal sans the trophies at the moment.

As @degoose says above, we've progressed massively in the last 20 years. Not sure what you're on about to be honest mate. 20 years ago we were equivalent to someone like West Ham nowadays, just a mid-table club living for the odd shock result against the big teams and hopefully a decent cup run, occasionally unearthing a good player only to lose them after 1 season of being at the top of their game. If you've really been going for 20 years you can't have been paying much attention. How you can say we haven't progressed since 20 years ago is either staggering ignorance or just blind anti-Levy stupidity, sorry mate. We've progressed massively even just since Poch took over, let alone since Levy took over.

If you've been going to see your football team, week in, week out, for 20+ years; I'd be disappointed if having to temporarily go to another ground for a couple of seasons made you rethink your support.

This is the next step. Poche's "Be brave" mantra isn't just meant for the players you know. It's meant for the supporters as well. We're complaining about first world problems here. Imagine you've supported your local team, like Darlington for example, whose owner really did take them for a ride, and left them literally playing on a park field with the pub teams, right down in the depths of the non-league pyramid, after flirting with championship promotion. That is something to make you question the point of it all.

For us though. next season is going to be epic.

Talk about cut off your nose to spite your face.
I have been going regular to spurs since 1951 and have seen the great ; the good ; the bad and the downright dreadful and I can tell you this is not the time to turn your back on the club and I have never been so optimistic since the early days of Bill Nicholson.
Keep the faith COYS

It's a great time to watch us but as for the actual match day itself, it's dire now.

Football tourists piss me off. We've all seen them, especially at Wembley. Stop taking selfies, put the phone away and watch the match! :mad:

Oh.. and burn that half and half scarf.

I complain about Wembley, but I'm going to take my dad to the Newcastle match, just so he can see it. He hasn't been to the new one, and the last time he went to Wembley was 1993...
