I Confess: More Arsenal woe

Posted on 10 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 Gareth Powis

In 1994 my father was sold tickets to the Cup Winners Cup final between Arsenal and Zaragoza. I went along and had to spend an entire day in Paris surrounded by gooners singing about what a good team they had. However, I got to witness that superb goal from the halfway line. Funny, they were not singing on the way back.

From Daniel Slater

I entered a draw for an Arsenal ticket through my work which if I had won, was to give to my friend (a Gooner). Unfortunately, my manager told me that I could not give it away as a representative from the office had to attend.

I had to go to the game and listen to Gooners singing anti-Spurs songs and watch them score 2 goals, at this point (in the second half) I left. When leaving I felt like I'd cheated on a lover and to this day I still do!

I soon left the company for making me do the unthinkable and, of course, when they announced they were the new shirt sponsors of Arsenal FC and placed framed shirts all around the offices! I hate Arsenal.

From J Jalalian

My confession is that when I was 10 I brought a fake Arsenal shirt. Later that day I went round to my mate with the shirt. I asked him to come up the park where I showed him the shirt, he liked it very much seeing he was an Arsenal fan, so I took a lighter and set fire to it right in front of him, it was really funny seeing it burn.
