"It is better to fail aiming high than to succeed aiming low. And we of Spurs have set our sights very high, so high in fact that even failure will have in it an echo of glory." Bill Nicholson. SPURS

Spurs played their first competitive match 125 years ago today (Sunday) and will celebrate with a night to remember off the pitch and on it as well hopefully with three much needed points against Villa. Here are some YouTube videos to celebrate the event.

Tottenham Hotspur have ambitious plans to build the biggest stadium in Britain on disused land in the Lea Valley in Edmonton.

The proposed new 100,000 seater arena, next to the Odeon Cinema complex at Picketts Lock, would eclipse even Wembley as Britain's largest venue and is expected to open in 2012 - the same time as London will host the Olympic Games.

Spurs currently have a waiting-list of 25,000 for season-tickets at their 36,000-capacity White Hart Lane ground in North Tottenham, but the club is confident that success on the pitch would see demand reach record levels.

The £400m development would include an extension of the Victoria Line along existing track from Tottenham Hale, with additional stations at Northumberland Park, Picketts Lock and Enfield Town, as well as the usual array of offices, luxury flats and retail space. The current site already boasts a leisure complex, golf course and camping grounds.

A spokesperson for Transport for London confirmed that negotiations were at an advanced stage with the North London club about mutual levels of funding for the new transport infrastructure.

Meanwhile, the FA are reeling at the prospect of having their centrepiece stadium dwarfed by the new development only a few miles around the North Circular. Wembley refused Tottenham permission to play their home games at the national stadium during the proposed redevelopment of White Hart Lane. Spurs responded by going back to the drawing board - and are now threatening to turn Wembley into a white elephant.

The proposed development is entirely self-financing and the club are keen to stress that it will have no affect on transfer-spending, which will continue to rise year-on-year as the club seeks to secure regular "Champions" League football.

The White Hart Lane site would be redeveloped as a mixed commercial and residential complex.

Meanwhile, the club announced proposals for a new state-of-the-art training complex in nearby Chingford after plans to relocate the Chigwell complex to Enfield Town were rejected by the local authority.

Tottenham's owners, ENIC, the property development company of Bahamas-based billionaire, Joe Lewis, recently increased their stake in the club to 65% after purchasing the shareholding of former chairman, Sir Alan Sugar.
