TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR fans are rightly very proud of their new home but their neighbours have noticed a blush-inducing shadow created by a key feature.
Standing proud over the pitch is the club’s 4.5-metre Golden Cockerel, placed atop the South Stand on a metal structure.
But Arsenal fans noticed that it created an unfortunate odd shadow on the playing surface when the sun was out during Saturday’s win over Huddersfield.
It gave Gooners a cheeky chance to poke fun at their local rivals.
On Twitter commenter noted that it being a shadow was fitting, as Tottenham are “always in” Arsenal’s.
But Spurs supporters hit back with their own jibes too.
One joked that the shadow banter was “clutching at straws”.
Other Tottenham fans – riding high with their team in the Champions League – used it to take a dig at Arsenal’s Europa League participation.
Still officially known as Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the 62,000-seater arena has earned many plaudits since opening.
However, the sun might now have been out.
