High Road regeneration approved

Interesting news from the Haringey Independent - Plans to transform north Tottenham have been agreed by councillors in their cabinet meeting.

A 5,000sq m public space, named Moselle Square, would be built as part of a walkway between a relocated White Hart Lane station and the proposed new Spurs ground.

Regular readers (sorry the site is somewhat less updated these days!) will recall I posted an article back in April 2012 about the potential train station re-development which appears to have been given the green light.

In addition a library, cafes, industrial units and bars will form part of the regeneration.

Councillor Alan Strickland, cabinet member for housing and regeneration, said: “This is such an important step in the regeneration of Tottenham and I’m pleased to have the support of hundreds of residents as we reach this milestone.
“These plans are significant – a big step towards improving the lives of local families and giving them the high-quality, modern homes they deserve.

“We’ve listened closely to residents and traders during the last few years as these proposals have taken shape, and I’m pleased that first-class new public spaces are alongside plans for new housing.

“With the backing of local people, we have a once-in-a-generation chance to transform the opportunities for people in Tottenham. These plans will help us seize that opportunity.”

Mitchell swaps St Mary's for WHL

One of the worst kept secrets is finally out there following last night’s announcement after Ronald Koeman let the cat out the bag over the weekend.

It’s an extra sign of support from the board, Paul Mitchell who had previously worked at MK Dons before moving South joins as the clubs “Head of recruitment and analysis”.

'Mitch' was involved in other projects at Milton Keynes such as taking coaching alongside the reserves with John Gorman, being involved with their World Cup bid and also various community driven campaigns which shows his enthusiasm to get involved in all corners.

With failure to land apparent two top targets Morgan Schneiderlin and Mateo Musacchio it’s hardly surprising Pochettino has opted to bring in a close allies.

Though for every Tadic and Pelle there’s also an Osvaldo. Were the former Mitchell masterstrokes or Ronald revelations?  Like at Saints, we won’t really know the finer details about potential incomings though it surely casts fresh doubt over the future of Franco Baldini who was last see embracing the coaching staff at Villa Park and before that being a ball boy during the final training session in Belgrade.

Ultimately the buck stops with Daniel Levy who will sign the cheques and with January right around the corner it’s time for him to re-fill the ink in his no doubt feathered fountain pen.

You wouldn’t be surprised if Daniel doesn’t sanction the potential rumoured signing of Jay Rodriquez, who ‘Poch and Mitch’ clearly fancy after a long and serious injury lay off, which is fair enough.

No doubt there will be some activity in the window so Mitchell, 33, better tell his missus he’ll be working late.

White Hart Lane Drone Cam

A video is doing the rounds of a Drone Cam hovering over White Hart Lane during the Forest game a few weeks ago, it's well worth a watch.
However it appears the man has now been arrested after a drone was flown over the Etihad Stadium on Sunday during our game.

A GMP spokesman said the man was arrested on suspicion of breaching the Air Navigation Order and released on police bail for eight weeks.
Ch Insp Chris Hill, said: "The drones could pose a threat to crowd safety and potentially cause alarm in crowded areas.

"Even small drones can weigh up to seven or eight kilograms and could cause damage or injury if they fall from height. Thankfully, no-one was hurt."

He added: "People may see this as a minor offence but it is a breach of the Air Navigation Order, which is prosecuted by the Civil Aviation Authority."

Tunnel Cam - City away

It’s not just on the pitch Manchester City can splash untold money but off it their digital/web presence is one of the best around in my opinion.

The much viewed “Tunnel Cam” series is an access all areas, behind the scenes look throughout the whole match day, I’ve found myself watching our games footage on the channel in the last few years now it puts a different perspective on things. Have a watch below...

Whilst there were some positives on the pitch, in general the less said about the game the better!
