Confessions: Silver lining...wheely funny!

Posted on 9 April 2002  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

From Martin Flook, Bristol: This is not about me, but about my mate who I go to Spurs matches with. We had tickets for the FA Cup Quarter Final against Chelsea this year. He is known for being a tight guy with his money and decided that the odds before the match of Chelsea winning 4-0 @ 100/1 were to good to turn down. He put £1 on and left the Lane the happiest Spurs fan of them all!

From Andrea Parker, Cippenham: After watching the FA cup semi-final against Arsenal last season, we were attempting to get back to London along with thousands of other Spurs and Arsenal fans. We were very annoyed with the score and sitting in traffic for hours did nothing to cheer us up.

A mini bus crawled up along side us with about 15-20 Arsenal fans inside all jeering. We had been stuck in the traffic for about two hours so to amuse ourselves I wound down my window and told the driver of the Gooner mini bus that they had a flat tyre. He believed me and pulled off at the next junction probably having to queue for another couple of hours to get back onto the motorway. Revenge is sweet!
