    Tottenham Hotspur Football Club has proudly showed off their brand new stadium, which was widely hailed by supporters for a higher capacity than their old White Hart Lane. But the arena seems to have inspired netizens to draw a somewhat embarrassing parallel.

    In a bid to keep with the hype around the 62,000-seat stadium, Tottenham’s social media team released a series of birds-eye-view pictures as construction work continues on the site of their former White Hart Lane ground.

    The snaps did make waves – but, apparently, not exactly in a way the football club expected: social media users were quick to spot that the arena looked like a toilet seat from above, and the unfortunate angle drew much ridicule on Twitter:

    Spurs’ first fixture in their new “home” stadium will be against Liverpool in the Premier League on September 15.
