Colin, USA

Hey all, My name’s Colin and I’m from Saint Louis, MO, USA. My routine surrounding watching Spurs hasn’t always been the same but its somewhat interesting (to me at least). I got into the Premier League around 2004 through a high school friend who was a Celtic/Werder Bremen fiend. He suggested I start with English football based on my personality I suppose – intense, fast paced, full of drama but not like Italian drama. I feel stupid for typing that sentence but anyway, one of the first few games I saw was the 4-5 against the scum. Its ridiculous but... Read more »

There’s glory in it

By Flav You can’t start writing about White Hart Lane without thinking about what happened to Fabrice Muamba only a few days before. I was at the game and saw it happen. It was grim, and I’ll never forget it. I approached this game against Stoke philosophically. Whatever happened wouldn’t really matter, not really in the grand scheme of things, not when a player’s life is in the balance… but then the whistle went. And I realised, as much as my mind was with Fabrice, there was enough left to once again become entangled in 90mins of Tottenham Hotspur. I... Read more »

Dr Oyvind, Australia

Boys, As much as I wish I could get to the Lane regularly (ever) living in Melbourne is a real ball drag on that one. You might be able to get a tube, a bus or even walk, I’d have a 20 hour flight each way that would set me back the better part of two grand, whatever that is in your money. So watch as much as I can on tele, which in itself means a $1,200 a year subscription to get Foxtel, the only place I can get games (at least they’re in HD). The only good bit... Read more »

Confidence is believing

belief in oneself and one’s powers or abilities; self-confidence; self-reliance; assurance: His lack of confidence defeated him. The past few weeks have presented the team with their first real test of character. This character has been further questioned with the horrible events of Saturday evening, which, thankfully appear to be progressing positively. Earlier in the season we were a team brimming with the kind of confidence that led to talk of an unlikely title push, fellow teams and peers of Redknapp’s regaling the press with word that we, Tottenham Hotspur are playing the most attractive football throughout the league, something...

Matt, USA

Responding to the habits of the foreign support towards the beloved lilywhites, as being only a poor student most of my weekends in pursuit of match feeds is through online feeds or going with friends to the “British” pub that are located here in San Antonio, Texas where I currently reside and attend graduate school. My finances are pathetic, but my love of the shirt cannot be measured by any worldly means. When I was working at a Boy Scout camp in New Mexico during the summer 2010, I learned that the mighty Spurs were playing in San Jose, California.... Read more »

Cory, USA

My name is Cory Mizer.. I live in Canton, Ohio, so 5 hours behind you. Match days are kind of an odd experience… Because of the time difference I either have to wake up at 7am or I’m stuck at work in the afternoon, so no two are the same, but weekend matches are when it gets interesting. With no Spurs supporters in the general area I live in, I make an hour drive from the Canton area to Cleveland, Ohio. It’s all highway, but a long trek. I woke up at 6:30am to be up for the North London... Read more »

Alex, UK

Ok so I’m not from Thailand, America or even France (who would want to be?). Im from Woking, Surrey. But I feel my story needs to be heard. I stream every spurs game online because the old man is a man of morals and hates sky with a passion, so refuses point blank to shell out. Every game, 45 minutes before kick off I gather the team news from various news feeds and report the starting lineup to said old man, he is ofcourse the reason I am a spurs fan and I owe him at least a weekly team...
