Tottenham Hotspur christened the opening of their impressive new stadium by taking the three points in a 2-0 win against Crystal Palace on Wednesday night, as 59,215 people crammed into the remarkable venue.
The north London came into the clash having only taken one point from the previous 15 available in the Premier League, and it seemed as though they would struggle to pick up a maximum return again before Son Heung-Min scored a historic goal in the 55th minute.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has certainly been a controversial character at times during his reign with the north London outfit, which has hardly been helped by the fact that the club hasn’t signed a single player in the previous two transfer windows.
A lack of investment has often been questioned considering Tottenham have competed well in both the English top flight and the Champions League in recent times, but there is no doubt that he deserves some praise for finally getting them into their magnificent new home.
Harrogate Spurs went a step further on Wednesday as they unveiled a banner thanking the 57-year-old, with the caption: “Your dream …. Our future”.
They will certainly take a step further to ensuring their future is a positive one by securing a top-four finish in the Premier League and bringing top-level European football to their new stadium next season.
