Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur’s brand new stadium is almost ready and to give fans a teaser of what they can expect, they released pictures of the ground on Twitter.
However, the social media post backfired in spectacular fashion as the aerial view of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium bore a striking resemblance to a toilet seat.
Here’s the original post and you can decide for yourself if scores of gleeful rival supporters made sense:

Twitter user RichPig Taylor was brutally frank in his assessment of the new pictures:
Hahaha, when I saw this on my timeline I thought it was an Arsenal fan messing around! You actually built a stadium that looks like a toilet seat you absolute mugs!!

After years of wait, Spurs will finally play in their state-of-the art stadium for the 2018/18 Premier League season. However, the ground will not be ready in time for their first home clash.
They open their campaign with an away clash at Newcastle United before taking on Fulham in their first home game of the season. The Lilywhites will have to make do with Wembley Stadium for the tie against the Cottagers.
The first time the new stadium will be host to a Premier League clash is on September 15, when Spurs welcome Liverpool.
Coming back to the topic at hand, Twitter user Wheresgrandad showed off his Photoshop skills with this post:

While most Spurs fans were indignant at the unflattering view of their new stadium, they seemed more concerned with the club’s lack of transfer activity.
So far, Mauricio Pochettino has not made a single signing in the summer and with the transfer window deadline set to expire on August 9 this time, Lilywhites supporters are getting anxious.
Spurs open their pre-season with an ICC tie against Italian giants AS Roma on Thursday (0730 IST).
