ABOUT SPURS
Why do you support Spurs?
White Hart Lane was the first ground I was ever taken to aged 5 and I have been a supporter ever since. Now I have a son (inset when we flew over to Wembley for the Worthington Cup final) and daughter, following Spurs, even though we live a long way away. We flew over especially for the semi and it was her first game, sadly though things didn’t turn out as we had hoped. My son was sad too as I had promised to take him to the final.

Have you been to White Hart Lane - if so what's your favourite memory of the visit?
I have been countless times and have many great memories, I even worked there for a spell being involved with the first video productions of the home games. One of my favourite memories is the Anderlecht game, which went to penalties. That has always stuck in my mind, going home absolutely exhausted and not seeing the penalties from the stands not bearing to watch. I watched them on the video afterwards and was unable to talk for a week having lost my voice. A very recent memory was on the April 7 this year when I was at The Lane with my daughter, her first ever visit there and a kind gentleman there took us inside to the dressing rooms and pitch to take photos. She was absolutely thrilled and I thank the staff member for the memory on behalf of my daughter.

How do you keep in touch with Spurs news?
Internet mostly and UK papers even though they are a day late out here, and the occasional live game featuring spurs on local TV.

Which current player do you most admire?
Stephen Carr I think is our best player. He’s come a long way in the last 2 years. Sullivan is close and also Rebrov.

What about a former favourite?
Where do I begin?? Chivers, Gazza, Jennings the list is endless. I think though I must go for Glenn Hoddle. I followed his career from start to finish when I lived in London up to his last appearance with another great goal.

Which current player has made the greatest progress?
In my mind Ledley King

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT...
Glenn’s return?
It's great to see him back hopefully he will have the same influence over the team as manager as he did as a player.

Who should Glenn try to sign?
No names come to mind but I feel he needs to sign someone to supply Rebrov. A left sided winger and a quality midfield player.

The new home kit?
Very nice (more expense having to buy 3 more again hahahaha)

The Official Spurs Website?
For us, and everyone living so far away, it’s great. Live real time chat would be nice too if possible.
