I think they should rename Northumberland Park station at the same
time as renaming / relocating Angel Road... they have to redo every
map and line guide anyway, so they can rename Northumberland Park for
nearly free (apart from replacing bus blinds).

The current name is poor, since approximately half of the road called
Northumberland Park has White Hart Lane as its nearest station, and it
also duplicates a station name on the Tyne & Wear Metro. Tottenham
Hotspur East would do, or Tottenham Park or Tottenham Marsh. (The
original name was "Marsh Lane" for a decade, then bizarrely just
"Park" for 70 years, then "Northumberland Park" for a century.)


Good grief, does football have to dominate *everything* ???


It's a public building where up to 62,062 people will descend from Wales
and Scotland, and even fly in from America, to watch rock concerts and
the like. Naming the station after the building makes sense.
