Once Upon: Jonas Hjartarson

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).

Hi, I'm from Iceland and I have supported Spurs since I was five years old. I started supporting them because my father told me to, but he has supported them since he was about ten years old.

I went to White Hart Lane for the first time in 1998 to watch a game against Newcastle, it was George Graham's first home game as manager and we won 2-0 and Iversen scored both of our goals after coming on as a sub in the first half.

It was a great experience and I went to the Lane again for the first game of last season against Ipswich and we won the game 3-1 efter going down in the first half. But Anderton and Carr got us in front before half time and Les won the game for in the second half.

As I said above I live in Iceland and Tottenham isn't a popular club here so I get teased a lot becuase of that. But I don't regret having supported Spurs for nine years now because Glenn Hoddle has brouhgt some fantastic playing style to the club so I hope we can start winning trophies within a few years.
