<B>From Lee Jackson, Sidcup:</B> I got invited as a VIP to Arsenal v Middlesbrough this season through my work. I couldn&rsquo&#59;t get rid of the ticket as it was short notice so I went.<IMG align=right border=1 src="/news/title_images/suntot7.jpg"> <P class=MsoNormal>I announced to the staff at Highbury that I was a Spurs fan and proud.<P class=MsoNormal>They gave me free bucks fizz and a four-course meal. I&nbsp&#59;was then given a programme of the game which was handy because I had run out of loo roll at home.<P class=MsoNormal>I then took my seat in apparently a great stadium which reminded me of an old barn and watched in joy as they were 2-0<SPAN style="mso-spacerun: yes">&nbsp&#59;</SPAN>down through own goals by Silvinho and Edu. Unfortunatly Spurs were also 2-0 down to Sunderland so a big cheer went up around the ground when our half-time results came up.<P class=MsoNormal>Well as you know the score finished 3-0 to Middlesbrough and we came back 3-2 winners. I will always remember that day.<P class=MsoNormal>I apologise to all my fellow Spurs fans but at least I milked them for all their beer and food!<P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
