Review by Chelsea fan Dan Martin

Why did you choose to go to this game and why were you looking forward to it?

Second Leg Carabao Cup Semi Final.


How did you travel to the game and how easy was it?

Train from Liverpool Street to White Hart Lane, quite straight forward but busy.


If you got the train, how easy did you find it to make your way to the stadium from the station?

Train stops right outside about 300m walk


Which pubs did you go to before the game and what was the atmosphere like?

No pubs near the stadium for away fans so went straight to stadium.


What did you think of the food and drink available inside the ground?

Pretty decent in the stadium to be fair – I had a nice Burrito and for a decent price. Better than we get at Stamford Bridge.


What did you think of the away end and your view of the game?

Great view – second tier to the left of the goal.


What was the atmosphere like during the match?

It a great looking stadium but soulless due to the size i guess. Away fans were by far the loudest.


How friendly were the home fans out of 10?

3/10 but hardly surprising.


How easy did you find it to get away from the stadium after the game?

Nightmare. Game finished at 10pm and the police made sure the fans were kept apart by sending us on a 2.5 mile round trip walking to Northumberland Park then round to Seven Sisters while all the time stating the were getting us to Tottenham Hale.


How much did you spend in total on this away day? Was it good value for money?

£100 – Standard it is what it is.


Would you recommend this away day to other fans?

On a Weekend yes but on a Week day evening it’s a horrible place to get back from unless you are heading East.


Is there anything else you want to tell other away fans about your day?

Spurs lost for the second time in 7 days to the only team in London with a European cup – So that was nice.

Review by Norwich City fan Callum

Why did you choose to go to this game and why were you looking forward to it?

The new Spurs ground became instantly top of my list to visit, and although Norwich had played there before this was my first trip there. I also saw it being built on the way home from Arsenal, and then I saw it from the outside the next time so I was really excited to see it properly.


How did you travel to the game and how easy was it?

I travelled by coach, it was the easiest away day of the entire season as a Norwich fan and I’d imagine this would be the case for many teams north of London. Parked in an industrial estate nearby with an absolute tonne of other coaches (I’m guessing all the Spurs supporters clubs) and dodgy looking car parks that were charging obscene amounts (One said £15, I don’t remember but some might’ve said even more than that!).


What did you think of the food and drink available inside the ground?

I was amazed to see at least 3 different food stalls in the away end, I think 2 of them were selling the exact same stuff and then the one that we went to had fish and chips among other stuff. It was around £9, and it was much better than expected to be fair. As someone from Norfolk where we are completely spoilt to choice with coastal towns and fish and chip shops, it didn’t live up to those, but that is to be expected. So while on the pricey side the food was good and there were a lot of options.


What did you think of the away end and your view of the game?

The away end was good, it is very similar to Arsenal in the sense that it is in the corner on the bottom tier. The concourse although not important was by far and away the best in the league, as is the ground itself. We were close to the action, and I thought that for 3,000 people this away end felt fairly compact which I was a fan of. The lower tier wasn’t that high so I would assume all away fans get a good view of the game.


What was the atmosphere like during the match?

The away end was dead, albeit not at all helped by the football. Not sure why our fans weren’t up for this one as the numbers were good. As for Spurs, they were better than I expected, grounds like this can very easily feel soulless (Man City) but that single tiered stand opposite the away end is awesome, and when they are all singing it is good and loud.


How friendly were the home fans out of 10?

6/10


How easy did you find it to get away from the stadium after the game?

I thought we would be alright since we were towards the outside of an industrial estate, but actually we were stuck in traffic for at the very least an hour. Can’t really fault Spurs for this, it is inevitable when there are 60,000 people trying to get out of a small space in London.


How much did you spend in total on this away day? Was it good value for money?

I think it was like £60. Absolutely worth it for a ground of this calibre.


Would you recommend this away day to other fans?

100%


Is there anything else you want to tell other away fans about your day?

The security checks, although necessary, are very very tedious which leads to long queues. None of the stewards on entry want to be there and they are quite unfriendly, it feels like you are sheep being herded, and it takes forever to get in. However once in, the ground is easily the best in the country.

Review by Aston Villa fan Noel Ward

Why did you choose to go to this game and why were you looking forward to it?

I went because it was Villa’s return to the Premier League and to see what Spurs’ new stadium is like.


How did you travel to the game and how easy was it?

I travelled by coach and it was fine.


Which pubs did you go to before the game and what was the atmosphere like?

We went to the Haringey Irish Centre as the known pub for away fans (Elmhurst) was closed down. The Irish Centre was fine and accommodating.


What did you think of the food and drink available inside the ground?

Not a great choice but to be fair I only tried to get food at half time so supplies could have been low at that time.


What did you think of the away end and your view of the game?

Yeah, it was a good view. Spurs doing what is right for them and tucking the away fans in a corner which I don’t blame them for.


What was the atmosphere like during the match?

I thought the home fans were very poor to be honest. When you consider it was the first game of the season and it was their first game since the Champions League Final, you’d have expected them to be really backing their players but they never seemed to until they scored.


How friendly were the home fans out of 10?

5/10


How easy did you find it to get away from the stadium after the game?

It was a bit of a walk to the Coaches which were packed on West Road. The stewards set up to direct the away fans didn’t seem to have a clue.


How much did you spend in total on this away day? Was it good value for money?

I’d say I spent in excess of £100, and it was value for money. Much cheaper than being in the Championship where we were fleeced for 3 seasons by the Yorkshire clubs.


Would you recommend this away day to other fans?

I certainly would. There was never really a hint of any serious bother, and it’s a wonderful stadium to watch a football match in. However, it did have that corporate feel to it which is far from what White Hart Lane was like.


Is there anything else you want to tell other away fans about your day?

The stewards at the ground were pretty poor. They never seemed to have a clue with what was going on. I know at Villa and many other clubs the stewarding is done by fans and so their knowledge of the ground and surrounding area is very good but this wasn’t the case here.
