You may have noticed that Tottenham played their last ever game at White Hart Lane as we know it over the weekend, if you didn’t know then Sky Sports commentator Martin Tyler was on hand to tell you, every minute for the entire contest.
Spurs, who sealed second place in the Premier League with a 2-1 win over Manchester United after goals from Victor Wanyama and Harry Kane got them home, will be moving right next door to a newly developed stadium after a year at Wembley.
The win over Jose Mourinho’s much changed United side meant that the north Londoners had gone an entire League season unbeaten at home for the first time since 1965.
Whilst the game held significance for a range of reasons in the context of the current season, from the commentary box there was little attention paid to the events on the pitch and more chatter about what was being left behind.
As you can imagine, then, the angle being taken by a certain Mr. Tyler, often accused of being overly exuberant in favour of the Red Devils, did not go down too well with those on Twitter, especially fans from the red half of Manchester…

Martin Tyler “THE FINAL ATTACK FOR SPURS AT WHITE HART LANE” as Dele Alli stops and then falls into Phil Jones. Fitting.

Is it me. Or has Martin Tyler switched allegiances to spurs as of late?
