But once I saw Glenn Hoddle play I was hooked. I'd never seen a player with so much skill before. By half-time I was a Spurs fan and never looked back.
I went to every home game for the next four years.
I then started work full-time which included Saturdays and couldn`t get up there much after that with me playing football myself, a few midweek games over the years.
I've been living in Canada for the past 10 years, so it's been a long time since I was at the Lane.
I keep up to date by the internet.
My first match was in 1979, I went with a friend from Eastbourne. He was a Spurs fan and I was Derby fan, (I know).
