Ohtaek, South Korea

Greetings to The Fighting Cock! Hi lads, this is Ohtaek Kwon(read O-TEK) from South Korea, Seoul. Just wanted take part in the International Spurs fans of mystery. I’ve been a YID since 1998 and have lived in England for about 12 years. I’ve visited the Lane 20 times and went to two away games during 2008-2011. I’m also the administrator of an Korean Spurs Fans Forum called “We Are Tottenham: 100% SPURS FANS IN COREA” of Daum Communications. 1,500 members and the numbers are going up like crazy!! (probably about 10 gooner scums and chelsea c*nts sneaked in cos they... Read more »

James, USA

This is the routine I followed in NYC. Festivities start the night before kickoff. Usually I meet up with Norf, Q, and Trust and we visit our local pub in Brooklyn. We stay there and sexually harass everything with a pulse until we are asked to leave (or one of us pulls) – that usually happens around midnight. We then take the train to China town to visit NYCs best Karaoke bar, Baby Grand, owned by fellow NYSpur, Vid. There we usually run into a few of the other NYSpurs Characters – RoyRadics, Muswell, IrishDave, ThisGuy, NewGuy, Jade, Criszac, and... Read more »

Poi, China

My name is Poi and I like Tottenham. The last time I got to see my beloved team was the pre-season wembley cup a while back. We lost to Celtic, That was my goodbye, thanks guys, I’m off to China. Since then I’ve spent the last year and a half in China and South East Asia, luckily everyone around here is obsessed with football so it’s always a good talking point. I’ve been trying to think of the most interesting stories of how I’ve kept up with spurs and this is what I have. In order: – Arriving at our... Read more »

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 »
