I Confess: Dad's sin

Posted on 12 June 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).

Confession from Dave Gordon, Hartlepool

My own father! I don't believe it.

He used to work for, that's right, Arsenal... I don't believe it! He is now a talent scout for Sunderland AFC but I was never aware until I looked through an old phone book that he signed a player called Neil Heaney for Arsenal.

They, in return, sold him for around three hundred grand. Unbelievable.

PS. I really do love Spurs, no matter what my father may have done.

Confession (or threat...) from Nick Kirsopp, Farnham

I know that I am only 15, but I have supported Spurs for 10 years. Ever since my dad took me to my first game againts Leeds (where we drew 1-1) I have supported them through thick and thin.

But just lately I have been thinking of supporting another club. I don't know why, but I have just had enough with us losing all the time, it's good when we win but we don't win enough.

Maybe Glenn can pull it back to what we used to be like in the 80s, but if he doesn't then I think I will move on like a lot of other kids my age will do.
