White Hart Lane to join a list of historic stadiums

The club will stage a grand farewell ceremony after the full-time whistle blows, with nearly 100 former players and managers invited to attend.

However, Spurs should do all they can to prevent Dier moving to Old Trafford as he still has much to offer this Tottenham team as they embark on some massive years as a football club.

The curtain will fall on White Hart Lane as a Premier League ground on Sunday. I sat in the 79th seat of the eighth row, the sun shining on the bright green pitch and on the rich blue seats of my section.

Pochettino said Sunday's farewell "will be special for our fans, all the staff, the players, and the people who love Tottenham".

"At the same time I am excited about the new stadium because the soul and the smell of White Hart Lane will keep there".

With work on the new stadium well underway, Tottenham will have to say goodbye to the historic ground, which is being demolished on 15th May. But in order to keep pace with their Premier League rivals Spurs have now made a decision to rebuild the entire stadium on land next to the old White Hart Lane. For a long-standing lover of any club to exit what is a kind of second home, is to feel the loss of friends and family who first guided us through the turnstiles and into the tribe - it is to feel old.

He believes such experiences can bring a club together.

"We are Manchester United and we always want to win every game", he said.

"Espanyol spent 12 years at the Olympic Stadium and we were capable of winning two titles, two Copa Del Reys, in 2000 and 2006", he said.

"In that moment I remember trying to give 200 per cent because I felt the club needed me".

"The memory of those games, the European nights, the big games we played there against United, Liverpool and so on are absolutely wonderful".

Since Wembley reopened in 2007, Spurs have won twice in 10 visits and have lost two League Cup finals, three FA Cup semis and two of this season's three Champions League group games.

Defeat at West Ham last weekend left Tottenham seven points behind Chelsea with three games to play, and Pochettino admits it has been hard to lift his players.

Following their Europa League exploits on Thursday, Jose Mourinho will nearly certainly field an under-strength team, and so expect Mauricio Pochettino's men to capitalise against a vulnerable Red Devils side.

"Now it's in their hands".

"It was a great experience for us to learn and it was hard". It stands out even more because it was my dad's birthday, and I just felt so ridiculously happy for him, because we did not foresee a pleasant day for him, or for any of the White Hart Lane faithful.
