Tottenham Hotspur fans react on Twitter to new season ticket prices

Tottenham Hotspur’s new season ticket prices are slightly eye-watering.

Today saw the first details of Tottenham Hotspur’s season ticket prices for their new stadium emerge and, they have caused quite a stir. The new 62,000 seater stadium will be Tottenham’s new home from next season. It looks as though Tottenham will have the most expensive season tickets in the country.

The cheapest season ticket in the new stadium will set Spurs fans back £795. The most expensive ticket will cost a whopping £1,995.

The prices have certainly divided opinion amongst Tottenham fans. Spurs have often gloated toward their North London rivals Arsenal, as their prices are so high at the Emirates Stadium.

Now Spurs will top that and fans are going to be shelling out if they wish to attend games week-in and week-out.

Of course many Tottenham fans were understanding. The cost of a new ground has to be covered and in the long run the hope will be the prices will drop. Others are less forgiving. Compared to the prices in German football the season tickets at Tottenham are astonishing.

Tottenham fans are loyal, and whilst season tickets may be a hard sell, fans will still come in their droves.

But they will expect change at the club. Tottenham have long been paying their top stars a lot less than the clubs around them. It has always made Spurs susceptible to bids from other clubs, who could afford to double some of Tottenham’s best players pay packets.

With Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen all courted by top European teams, Spurs will expect the season ticket funds to be pumped into the first-team.

Tottenham want their star players to pay and, to do so, Daniel Levy and co need to start paying them the going rate.

If Tottenham continue to underpay their players, sell their stars and fail to invest in top talent then the club’s fans will soon resent the amount they are paying for season tickets.

Here is some of the best reaction on Twitter to the season ticket prices…

Tottenham Hotspur should give Reo Griffiths first-team chance after 9-0 heroics

The teenager scored four and assisted three as Tottenham Hotspur’s under-18s routed Arsenal.

Tottenham Hotspur have plenty of young talent coming through at the moment and never has that been made more evident than in the under-18s result this afternoon. Tottenham dealt their North London rivals Arsenal a serious thrashing, winning 9-0.

It was a massive win for Spurs’ talented youngsters, albeit against a much changed and much younger Arsenal side.

But any North London derby win of this magnitude was going to have Spurs fans excited and rightly so. One player, in particular, was the talk of social media for Tottenham fans after the game. Reo Griffiths put in a fantastic performance for Spurs. He netted four goals and also grabbed three assists. That means the youngster only failed to play a direct hand in two of Tottenham’s nine goals.

(

The 17-year-old forward has long been tipped as a future star for the Tottenham first-team and his four-goal salvo this afternoon took his tally for the season to 23 goals in 18 games in the under-18 Premier League.

His excellent form has not gone unnoticed and fans on Twitter were ecstatic with his display. In fact, some are even calling on Tottenham to give him a place in the first-team for the end of the season:

So should they?

It is hard to see why not. Harry Kane is, of course, the undisputed starter for Spurs – even when clearly not at full fitness. But second choice Fernando Llorente is widely expected to leave the club this summer after failing to find his feet in North London. Whilst Kazaiah Sterling is a strong option as another youngster, Tottenham fans would like to see Mauricio Pochettino give the 17-year-old a chance instead.

Griffiths is clearly a top talent of whom Tottenham will have high hopes. With just four games of the season left and Spurs looking strong in a top-four spot, it would be no skin off Pochettino’s back to see what the young lad can do.

Griffiths certainly looked like the real deal this afternoon and Tottenham should definitely consider giving him a chance in the first-team before the end of the season.

He can do no worse than Llorente and it could be the dawn of a fantastic career in North London for the teenager.

Has Erik Lamela earned a new Tottenham deal?

After disappointing results on the pitch have all but ended Tottenham‘s 2017/18 campaign, management have turned one eye to the future with contract renewals for key men on the table, including winger Erik Lamela.

ESPN say that the club are preparing to activate an option in his current contract, which is set to expire in the summer of 2019, which will extend the deal until 2020.

Lamela earns around £65,000 but has not held negotiations over committing his future to the club since he initially joined from Roma in 2013.

The winger has become a key man since returning to fitness for Mauricio Pochettino, but critics will still question what role he has to play in the Spurs squad.

The main cause for concern for many will be that he spent 13 months on the sideline with a mysterious hip concern which was not expected to be long-term. Such fragility is not something that the club can afford with their tight wage structure meaning that a new deal for Lamela may prevent further signings or pay rises for other key men.

Since returning, Lamela’s statistics have not been particularly impressive, with two FA Cup goals and six assists in 29 games in all competitions not matching the likes of Heung-Min Son. Whilst Son has enjoyed his finest form to date this season, Lamela remains inconsistent.

Despite that, his coach has preferred him to the South Korean in many of the club’s recent big games, such as against Manchester City. That kind of faith in the Argentinian would suggest that Pochettino wants Lamela around and believes him to be worth the money, but he clearly has a point to prove if he is to convince all of the Lilywhites’ fans of his importance too.

Tottenham should target Lazio striker Ciro Immobile this summer

The Italian could be the ideal accompaniment for Harry Kane.

Italian striker Ciro Immobile is quietly having one of the best goal-scoring seasons in Europe, bagging a superb 29 goals in Serie A for Lazio to date.

This remarkable goal tally puts the 28-year-old level with Lionel Messi, ahead of the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Robert Lewandowski, and just two behind Mohamed Salah.

Immobile is well on his way to setting Serie A goalscoring records and would be a fantastic signing for Tottenham Hotspur in the summer.

A player of Immobile’s calibre should be guaranteed consistent Champions League football, but currently, Lazio face a fight to the wire to secure qualification in the league.

Just one point ahead of Inter Milan in the race for fourth, the capital club’s European status next season is very much up in the air.

A move to north London would bring secure Champions League football for the prolific striker, as Spurs sit a commanding five points ahead of Chelsea with just four matches to play.

In addition, Immobile would provide Spurs with the cutting edge the club needs to take the next step up and truly challenge for trophies in the 2018/19 season.

Tottenham frustratingly lost to Manchester United in the FA Cup semi-final on the weekend, adding to their League Cup and Champions League woes.

Star striker Harry Kane was notably ineffective against United, leading many to wonder if Spurs should invest in a top-class alternative or strike partner for the Englishman.

Ciro Immobile would be the perfect complement to Kane, as both possess tremendous finishing qualities and are lethal in front of goal.

The Lazio man crucially does not shy away from the big occasion, registering a brace against Juventus and a hat-trick against AC Milan this season.

A strike force of Harry Kane and Ciro Immobile would be a stunning coup for Tottenham Hotspur.

If Spurs can secure the services of Europe’s second-best striker, then the club might just collect its first trophy in a decade next season.
