Jan deserves a stand named after him for tolerating that shitshow of a season under that f’ing prick SherwoodJan was the legend and had to play with some total muppets before his mate showed up, he did respect Daws though, shows what kind of man Jan is
sad to see Toby go, we are the most fucked at the back we have been in years, unless Rodon suddenly goes up 2 gears as the rest are terrible
yes seeing Ledley and Woodgate dismantle Drogba to the point he has to be subbed was magical, they were like the ballet
Never been an issue with Scandinavians who embrace English culture….. when you have the Son fan club not watching the game, not going to pubs and there taking Instagram random photos it’s a bit differentOff topic and maybe it has been addressed but what is it with Spurs fan (my be all football fans but I haven't seen it from other clubs) and their hatred of fans not born and raised right in White Hart Lane?
It is an English thing because when I travelled to the UK for rugby everyone I met thought it was great to see fans from all over the world supporting rugby and their clubs.
It isn't a sports thing because I follow multiple NA sports and have seen international fans get tons of support when they mention they follow team x. Fans support them and love to see the team getting support all over the world.
But for Spurs fans if you are not born and raised, with 6 generations born and raised as well, with in touching distance of White Hart Lane to many that somehow makes you a lesser fan. And I am not talking about just on here or me either, but it is widespread and against many different fans/countries.
Is it a small minority, is it a bigger issue than Spurs/English supporters and a football thing?
It seems like such an odd and pathetic criticism to bring up where someone is from and yet is done so regularly by many "fans" when someone not from London supports that club.
I think the painful bit was perhaps how bad we were last season because of the lack of rebuild.It doesn't have to be painful but right now we are talking about getting rid of players that are near the bottom of my "get rid of" pile instead of those at the top.
Or any others for that matter. Loads on here including me are from nowhere near North London. My accent stands out a mile in Tottenham but it's never been an issue , been all over the country supporting Spurs, especially from the late eighties to early noughties and used to see and meet for beers with spurs fans I became mates with, many of whom are from North London, sure there used to be piss taking but that's UK culture anyway.Never been an issue with Scandinavians who embrace English culture….. when you have the Son fan club not watching the game, not going to pubs and there taking Instagram random photos it’s a bit different
