WHERE to start?

Posted on 20 April 2010  - 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).

Wembley, nah, we'll give that a miss.

Arsenal? Now you're talking.

If the night wasn't perfect enough, Xtra had the added bonus of listening in to an 'interview' with top comic and Spurs fan Michael McIntyre afterwards.

The star of Live at the Apollo and Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow was invited down to the dressing room following the 2-1 win and agreed to a couple of minutes in front of the Spurs TV Online camera.

It wasn't so much of an interview as a two-minute stand-up as Michael told us how he'd talked tactics beforehand with Harry Redknapp and told him to pick hero of the night Danny Rose.

"We played it perfectly," he said. "I spoke to Harry and told him, 'pick the boy Rose'."

"But he's untried," Harry said.

"I said get Rose in there and make sure it goes to his left leg early. I made him repeat it. Get it to Rose and then bang, bang, in...BANG! I then said for the rest of the first half, make sure we don't have the ball. That's key. Let them come at us. Second half, get it to Bale. And Gomes, unbelievable. I said to Gomes before 'don't use any other part of your hand apart from your fingertips. What a night! Come on you Spurs!"

You can watch Michael on SPURS TV ONLINE or via the OFFICIAL SPURS APP and we've a clip in the flash player above...
