Hoddle, Ardiles help Spurs say goodbye to Lane

"We so badly wanted to win and now we get to enjoy it and say thanks to the fans for an fantastic season, especially at the Lane".

The captain did score the last-ever goal at White Hart Lane but by that time Tottenham already had the goals it required - from Victor Wanyama's sixth-minute header and Kane's 28th goal of the season.

Wayne Rooney scored United's consolation, the last ever goal at the ground, but Spurs claimed the points to finish their home campaign unbeaten in the league. To see it go in was special.

There was not a dry eye in the house as stars from the past were paraded on the pitch in an emotional ceremony after the final whistle.

THERE was no time wasting at White Hart Lane yesterday as demolition crews set to work less than 24 hours after Tottenham played their last game there. Since 1899, this stadium was functional, but it will be replaced by a new 61,000-seater ground rising around it.

"When the new era and stadium arrive there will be different expectations, but, most important, always in our memory will be White Hart Lane, the soul and the smell".

"I said to myself this would be the hardest one, given the quality of the teams we had to play on the run-in", Allardyce said.


Walker came on as Trippier got injured after a heavy fall in the second half, with the replacement looking much more adept at dealing with the French attacker's threat.

"Obviously a lot of top teams, the top six as we look at now, are all going to be fighting for that title again and it's been quite an achievement this year to finish second, but we've got to go one better next year".

Spurs struggled at the national stadium in European football this term.

HARRY KANE insists Tottenham are ready to embrace the biggest changes in the club's history.

Arsenal's late surge had put Juergen Klopp's side under huge pressure but they responded in style and will definitely finish in the top-four if they beat relegated Middlesbrough at Anfield on the final day of the season next Sunday.

They are trying to take the next step off the pitch, and it is happening at the same time that they have got a very good team on it.

Spurs' fans will be delighted to have won their final game at White Hart Lane and solidify their place in 2nd in the Premier League.
