Tottenham have confirmed that they are considering renewing their application to bring a claim against the OPLC and Newham Council - despite having FOUR thrown out yesterday.
The north Londoners are so desperate to prevent West Ham moving into the stadium that they are considering continuing their attempts to have the decision reviewed - despite having lost the original contest, and having seen four of their five applications for review rejected yesterday.
"The club now has the option of renewing its application at an oral hearing at the High Court and we shall give consideration to this in the next few days," a statement on tottenhamhotspur.com read.
"As previously reported, the club continues to hold discussions with both local and national government bodies in order to seek to determine a feasible stadium solution."
Tottenham's continued attempts to derail the process have been met with anger by the majority of Lillywhites fans, who are against the club relocating to east London.
West Ham United supporters remain split over the move, which was ratified without their consent or views being sought at any stage of the selection process.

''Move on Tottenham. Your own paying supporters are not interested in the stadium. And they are not interested in seeing money wasted on solicitors fees rather than transfer targets.''

''It's a load of rubbish, isn't it? Just let it go and move on. West Ham in Stratford was the only bid that made sense, Tottenham just simply couldnt move there.
Spurs should be doing all they can to make the stadium redevelopment at White Hart Lane happen, and they should be given grants to ensure it does at that would provide huge regeneration to that area, much like the Olympic venues will do for Stratford.''

''Primarily because our West Ham opposition group was reticent and badly organised. I've got my telescope pre-ordered for the big move in :( ''

''A balanced and unbiased article then! Reading the article in the Independent, it's clear that the bidding and decision making process was dubious to say the least. That aside, the obvious solution is to build a much better stadium for both teams to use, and split the costs. I know some fans fear change and losing the clubs identities - but AC Milan and Inter are both fierce rivals, and they do alright don't they? Isn't it what you do IN the stadium that makes the club who they are? So build something iconic like that San Siro, famous the world over.
It's a shame the ODA, Boris, and the clubs have made such a mess of this. I don't say this direspectfully but the design that Gold and Sullivan have gone with looks terrible. The architect clearly isn't a football fan. Had everyone not been so pig-headed about it both clubs would have had a world class stadium, close to the pitch, and more money left to spend on players. The Boleyn Ground is a good ground, great atmosphere - seems crazy to me, but it's all about revenue not atmosphere. Best of luck.''
