And now: the mighty Spurs! North East London outfit Tottenham is one of the oldest and most successful club in British football history. However, the club has not been as successful since the Premier League was founded in 1992 and the club is still dreaming of a return to the glory days in the beginning of the 1960’s. The club has a reputation for playing an attacking football that is easy on the eye, but nowadays also as a bit of an under-achiever. Together with Manchester City, Spurs is the club that spends most money on new players in order to break in to the “top four” (Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal) but has still not managed to do that.
This season, the fans have got their hopes up yet again. After 14 matches the team is third in the league and the spirits are high. Well, as a Spurs fan myself, at least mine is. A strong central line of players where Palacios, King and Woodgate play important roles plus an attacking flair personalised by the likes of Lennon, Defoe, Keane and Modric, I feel the team certainly has enough quality to beat Arsenal or Liverpool to the fourth spot this season. But I know I have to prepared for yet another disappointment come April.
The club was founded as a cricket club in 1882 and plays their home matches at White Hart Lane, a ground that holds around 36 300 attendants. It is not always easy to get tickets but not at all impossible if you do it a while in advance. Try to catch the home game against Manchester City on the 16:th of December – that is bound to be a cracker!
