Fans Video Shows Difference In Atmospheres At Spurs And Arsenal
Spurs fans added the latest tool in their rivalry with Arsenal when they finally got to see their new stadium in action and one fan pointed out the difference in atmosphere between the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and the Emirates.
Like with any derby the north London rivalry between Spurs and Arsenal is a very personal and local one that causes rifts in families, friends and across places of work and schools.
For many years there was only one winner in the rivalry. Even when Spurs were able to get the odd result against their neighbours it would be Arsenal who would finish above them in the league.
Such was the cult behind finishing above their rivals that St Totteringham's day was created by fans of the Gunners, the day where it was no longer mathematically possible for Spurs to finish above the red half of north London.
That day didn't happen last season and for much of this season it looked like it would once again be missing for the calendar but recent form suggests it might actually happen.
Spurs though are just happy that they can now laud it over their rivals because of their newer, bigger and better stadium, which opened on Wednesday night with a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace.
Now one fan has posted a video to 'prove' how much better the atmosphere is at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium than at the Emirates Stadium:
Spurs had to wait a long time for their new stadium to be built. They moved out of White Hart Lane before the beginning of last season, with the new ground built on the same site as the old ground, and were supposed to play at Wembley for a season.
Mauricio Pochettino's side were meant to play from the beginning of the season but delays stopped them and they finally got in on Wednesday night.
Spurs were in contention to make a title push but they failed to win for five games in a row in the league, including a draw in the North London derby.
The win against Palace stopped the slide but they have a battle on their hands to finish in the top four.
