The heart and soul of Tottenham Hotspur belongs in N17 - and the Journal is campaigning to make sure the football club stays true to its roots.
West Ham United may have got the initial go-ahead to take over the Olympic Stadium in Stratford, east London, after the Games in 2012. But even if they overcome the huge challenges and move in, Spurs might still abandon plans to build a new 56,000-seat stadium in Tottenham High Road - and instead move to a new home outside the borough.
That would be a huge kick in the teeth for thousands of football fans - and a massive blow to the bright new future promised to the community by the club, including a hotel, new homes, hundreds of jobs and millions of pounds worth of regeneration.
We must persuade Spurs not to desert loyal fans and quit White Hart Lane.
