I Confess: Highbury or the sack

Posted on 6 July 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 Graham Joiner

I was instructed by my boss to entertain a valued German customer who was over here on business and a keen football supporter (Offfenback Kickers).

I was to use my bosses Arsenal season ticket to take this guy to see Arsenal v Leicester in the FA Cup. When I declined, it was looked upon as a "career threatening move", so for the sake of my family I decided to go.

On the way to the ground my companion asked if he could stand up during the game and state that I was a Spurs fan. Only if I can shout you are German I replied. We both decided to say nothing!

The game was a 0-0 draw and as exciting as watching paint dry!! I never received the promotion I was looking for but Arsenal were beaten in the replay!!
