This news has just been announced on Sky Sports News..
An awe won't have to move to far away from our ancestral home of 109 years!
Being a bit of a afficionado on stadium design and developments I will look into this one and report back asap re images and plans but one thing Im happy about......that we are staying in our ancestral manor.
Imagine the gloating from 'woolwich wanderers' if we had decided to upsticks and move to Stratford or further out? They would be able to claim to be the true kings of north London instead of the bunch of usurping pillagers they really are!!

We have needed to move to a new stadium for quite some time now. There was talk a few years back about moving to Picketts Lock but those plans were shelved. So in retrospect a new home just to the north of WHL will mean we do not have to go too far from our current location.
Stadia seem to be built on very similar designs these days eg.. don't know if anyone else has noticed but Pride Park (Derby) & The Riverside (Boro) are very similar in design to each other.
Even the Emirates is similar in design to the others mentioned.
I can't wait to see it all taking shape and we may not even have to move from WHL while the construction work is in progress!!
Please, NO! Something like that would be awful (she says offering fervent prayers heavenwards!).
Don't see why it can't be The [Sponsor's Name] White Hart Lane - sounds reasonable don't you think? And it keeps the continuity.
In any case, we fans will keep up the WHL name regardless - of that I have no doubt.
I've 'plucked' this from another website....it was leaked about 1 yr ago when Spurs were toying with anouncing a new stadium then.
Im not claiming its the real Mcoy....just that it might resemble this a bit. Not too happy about the narrow lower tier....Id rather 3 2 wider tiers than 3 narrow ones.
(hope this link works)
Hi Andrew......not sure your theory is physically possible mate.
WHL is technically four seperate stands and the design (by modern new build standards) is a bit of a mess so simply using that template for 60,000 seats would look....erm.....bizarre!
Its all speculation until they release the new plans but Im really hoping they go for the keeping the atmosphere option.....something like this........

Oops sorry Alf (et al)...the link wouldnt work for after I posted it either.....I just couldnt be ar5ed to sort it as I was about to go home!!
FYI it was just a few pics of Schalke 04's stadium which is well nice. Just Google it!
