Tottenham fans beware, Daniel Levy may have spoiled you with a huge summer spending spree, but he's planning to use Populous to design the new White Hart Lane, the same company who designed the Emirates stadium. 

Spurs' plans for a new stadium have been delayed because chairman Daniel Levy has changed design companies. 

According to the London Evening Standard, Populous, the company who designed the Olympic Stadium and the Emirates, have been approached by Tottenham Hotspur in order to help design their new home. 

Spurs were originally using the company KSS to make plans for the new arena and hoping to bring the capacity up to 56,000. 

However, it seems these plans will be scrapped and new designs created which could see the new stadium correspond to the Emirates and the new Wembley. 

This will anger many Spurs fans, who were hoping to see development begin in the near future. A season ticket holder and contributor to 'The Fighting Cock' podcast, Ricky Feegrade, is disappointed with the decision. 

"It's frustrating, the fans were on board with the current designs as they took into account the fans want to be close to the action and the acoustics of the stadium," he said. 

The stadiums designed by Populous are known for lacking a certain atmosphere because of their size and shape. This example can be seen at the Emirates, a completely different stadium to the Gunners former home Highbury. 

For anyone who has been to both Highbury and the Emirates, the difference is clear, and Feegrade knows this will upset the Tottenham faithful. 

"Bringing in Populous does not fill me with much hope - stadiums like Wembley, the Emirates and the Olympic stadium are not known for having a buzzing atmosphere and are very corporate and soulless," he added.
