Hammers curse on new Spurs stadium?
London clubs don’t miss any opportunity to pick on their neighbours and recently a West Ham United fan, who happens to be involved in the building of Spurs new stadium posted a picture of the claret and blue scarf buried in concrete at the construction site.
A token from their rivals across town has not gone down well with the White Hart Lane faithful with many worried about the consequences of this ritual. Portsmouth’s curse on the St. Mary’s stadium comes to mind when the Pompey supporters intentionally buried shirts in strategic areas of the ground, leading to a winless streak for the Saints at their new home.
Spurs begin their new season at Wembley and will be using the National Team Stadium for a major part this season and if their form from last season translates on the pitch, superstition will have to take a back seat in footballing matters.
