Spurs denied permission to reduce Wembley pitch

Manchester United had an “even better season” than Tottenham – former Spurs midfielder Steffen Freund

Tottenham Hotspur were reportedly told by the Premier League that they will not be able to alter the dimensions of the Wembley pitch.

They had hoped to give their players a helping hand by replicating the home conditions of White Hart Lane - the second smallest pitch in the league.

Wembley's pitch size is 105m x 69m, so it will not apply for the Spurs.

The former Spurs defender, 39, spent three years at White Hart Lane, but admitted they're still not at the required level to compete in Europe's elite competition. At best, they could ask the FA to trim the width by one metre. It wasn't too long ago that Mousa Dembele, then managed by Andre Villas-Boas, was complaining that the pitch at White Hart Lane was too small. We know that some teams are going to come here and make a block, and we don't have a big pitch so it's even more hard. The manager will speak to us as well, because we always have a bit of difficulty with these kinds of teams [that park the bus]. But they will now play on the biggest pitch in the league.

'Pretty Little Liars' may just have a spin-off and we're SHOOK
Well, according to Vulture , the PLL gals all agreed that Sasha Pieterse's Alison would make the most binge-worthy story line. Do you think there should be a Pretty Little Liars spinoff? Let us know over on our Twitter and Facebook pages.

Before last season, the previous game they won there was the 2008 League Cup final, losing all four matches at Wembley after that.

There is a belief among the Spurs camp that the Wembley's wide pitch is a major factor behind the club's poor results.

Spurs will play home matches at the 90,000-capacity national stadium before moving to a new 61,500-seat home stadium, which will be ready for the 2018-19 campaign. There aren't really any excuses left - Tottenham might as well start making adjustments now.
