I confess: Arsenal sins...

Posted on 14 November 2001  - 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 Charles Moore, Kent: At a disco once my mate dared me to wear a Arsenal shirt for five quid. I did the dare but he did not give me the money. I really do regret it now. My dad absolutely killed me.

From Andrew Smith, Ware: In 1991, after Spurs beat Notts County in the FA CUP quarters, me and my dad went and stood on the Clock End at Arsenal to watch their cup tie against Cambridge United hoping they might overturn the Gunners. They didn't unfortunately - luckily we did in the next round!

From Steven Scott, Milton Keynes: One of my friends at work follows Arsenal and he could not get a ticket for the Spurs v Arsenal clash one year. Well, I could not go so I sold him my one and along he went. Arsenal beat us 5-0 that year but he could not celebrate a single goal - the ticket I gave him was for the Shelf.

From Trevour Courtney, Hatfield: I confess for my sins & shame - I was born in Highbury Mansions on Highbury Hill, Islington, right next to their ground, but was I saved when my parents moved to Hertfordshire.

From Daniel Caley, Islington: When I was 14 I went to Highbury to watch Tottenham and Arsenal on the screen. When Spurs scored I just jumped up and started cheering until I rememberd where I was and when I looked around every one in the ground was staring at me and giving me dirty looks, so I sat down quickly.

From Steve Betts, USA: My missus hates me for this but I make I her drive around my car with the licence plate THFC 5 as well as having five Spurs stickers on the back. She supports that lot from up the road!

From Daryl Kay, Woodford Green: A few years back, I went on an Arsenal goalie course, and being a mad Spurs fan, I wanted to wear my Spurs goalie top, but I couldn't, so I had to wear my mate's Arsenal top! I hated evey minute of it. When I got home, I scrubbed every inch of my body to get rid of the sting of wearing an Arsenal top!
