The club confirmed that they would play the first match at their new home against either Crystal Palace or Brighton in April

Tottenham Hotspur’s move into their new home has been branded “farcical” by talkSPORT pundit Luke Moore, and he believes they should not be allowed to do it this season.

Spurs confirmed they would be moving into their new stadium for their final five home Premier League games and their Champions League ties.

The £1billion project has been hit with numerous delays and they were due to move in last September.

It means they have been forced to play at Wembley for the majority of the season.

Speaking on talkSPORT, Moore said: “We have to understand, regardless of our club’s affiliation and the teams we support, that the integrity of the competitions we are playing in is the most important thing.

“I’ve not heard a decent argument against it. I do think they should have had to wait. I do think they should have been given a bit of a grace period and said ‘look it’s a big project and there’s unforeseen problems’ so there would be a grace period.

“But this has been farcical. It has been going on for far too long and I don’t think they should be allowed to do it.”

The issue of their move to the new stadium before the end of the season have split opinion and on The Season Ticket on talkSPORT, presenter Laura Woods did not see an issue with it.

She said: “I don’t think it’s a big deal.

“I think they’ve been allowed to get this far. They’ve been delayed for reasons completely out of their control.

“Going in the stadium before the end of the season, for me I don’t care.

“Who is losing out here? Spurs have lost out by losing money the whole season. They’ve wanted to get in this stadium but for whatever reason it has been delayed.

“We all know when it’s a health and safety issue you cannot get around it and it has been out of their control.

“I don’t think it’s a negative for anyone, who is losing out?”
