Reckon they would let any of us celebrate the lives of those we love and loved Spurs in the Stadium ? As nice as it might have been for his family to be afforded that luxury, it's not right for one if it's not right for everyone. Fuck off Beckham.Oh, & 'East End boy' + 'massive Man U fan' = cunt in my book anyway.
I am sorry to read that mate. Unfortunate as it is football stadiums have more than a few complete knobs, but mostly decent people thankfully. I have had it over the years with people and it's why I was so pleased no one was behind me this past 15 years since I moved to a certain East Stand block......And then I felt it. I was in shock. What is wrong with these people?
West Ham and Woolwich fans trying to console themselves after realising that we will be able to do the EXACT same trip we've been making since we were children to watch Tottenham Hotspur.The fans of other clubs taking the piss out of us for not actually moving away when we're moving stadium...
Tbf I didn't really see it as that much of a big deal - that was until I got in on Saturday night a bit pissed and it dawned on me that the day had arrived......all of a sudden I was an emotional mess.The fans of other clubs taking the piss out of us for not actually moving away when we're moving stadium... This is the kind of upside-down thinking you get when a huge portion of your fans have never actually been to a live game, or know very little about the team they support besides "They play in London/Manchester". Not criticising fans who live abroad or anything, they contribute a lot and are often more knowledgeable than a lot of English fans. And also of course you can feel attached to a ground without having been to it, but it seems a lot of people have a massive misunderstanding when it comes to why upping sticks to another part of a city as big as London is bad for a football club's identity.
I just got in from work and put on the match of the day highlights and blubbed again. I just keep watching the footage. I am like some one in mourning ringing the awnser phone of departed love one so I can hear their voice one more time.Tbf I didn't really see it as that much of a big deal - that was until I got in on Saturday night a bit pissed and it dawned on me that the day had arrived......all of a sudden I was an emotional mess.
I'm not sure you actually mean this.....West Ham and Woolwich fans trying to console themselves after realising that we will be able to do the EXACT same trip we've been making since we were children to watch Tottenham Hotspur.
In a bigger stadium than their own
With a single tier that holds 17,500
With fans 5 meters from the pitch
And no running track
Purposely built for atmosphere
With consultation with fans groups about placing of fans that want to make noise
Basically everything their owners didnt give a FUCK about for them....yeah, Im so jealous we didnt move 5 miles away to some SHIT HOLE
To be fair to him - Keegan was the epitome of that type of footballerYeah, he had decent skill levels but more importantly a good engine - up and down the pitch for 90 mins. It was the dawn of a new era for the modern midfielder, people realised superior fitness could partly compensate for a lack of genuine ability.
It's on the previous page, you lazy fucking bastard!Never doubted the result would be 3 points and glory.
Man U took far too long to get their shit together. Handy for us that they were really eyeing Wednesday. Mourihno looked positively bored.
Gutted I didn't set my DVR for longer, I didn't know they would be covering the post game proceedings on NBC, but it turns out they were.
Anybody got a link/source for the post match action?
I am (sorry, was) Paxton Upper. After people had been on the pitch a while, a lot of people around me started singing "get off the pitch". Partly it was a joke but some people were genuinely angry. I was singing "stay on the pitch" lol.What a special day. I've seen a little criticism of the pitch invasion from pundits and a couple on here, and whilst everyone is welcome to their opinion, I can't agree. That was honestly one of the best moments of my life. Success and trophies are important in football but for me the feeling of togetherness and belonging that I experienced yesterday was more special than any 3 points.
By that point I had gone back to my seat because I was excited to see the legends, and I was happy we all got our moment but didn't prolong it and ruin the occasion.I am (sorry, was) Paxton Upper.

Although I wish I had been able to take part myself, seeing the pitch become filled up with joyous yids was really a special and euphoric moment.
Blinding post, by the way.
