FURIOUS Spurs fans are calling on chairman Daniel Levy to do the right thing and consult with fans over a proposed move to east London.

Campaign group We Are N17, the postcode for the club's current home White Hart Lane, has started a petition opposing making the Olympic stadium in Stratford its new home after a century of playing in Tottenham.

The Say No To Stratford Hotspur petition has gathered more than 2,300 signatures and is being backed by our paper the Haringey Independent who wants the Premiership football club stay in our borough.

Tim Framp, who started the petition, said: "We are life-long football fans who have supported the club and poured money into it, and football fans don't always have much, so we should have the right to have a say in its future.

"Tottenham is more than just a name. It is the traditions that you love. The people you drink with in the pubs before the match. The people that have become your friends that you sit with in the stands.

"Football fans do not care about the money. If we wanted to support a rich club, we could support Manchester United or Chelsea. We want our history, which is what defines us."

At the time of going to press, Spurs were waiting to hear if London mayor, Boris Johnson, had given the £450 planning application approved by Haringey Council to develop a stadium in Northumberland Park final consent.

But even this may not disuade the club from heading east following comments from director Sir Keith Mills who said taking over the London 2012 stadium was its preferred choice.

Tottenham MP David Lammy said: "It is clear from my meetings with Spurs that Northumberland Park is option two and Stratford is number one.

"The club leaving Tottenham would be the most devastating thing to happen to the area since I have been an MP."
