I Confess: Love for Perryman
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).
As a 16 year old when all my friends had posters of Duran Duran over their bedroom walls - I lusted after Steve Perryman. On a school trip to London I pretended to be sick and nipped off to White Hart Lane instead of catching the bus straight home - whoops was spotted in crowd on 'match of day' by the Head teacher!!
One year I along with a few thousand Spurs supporters went see Arsenal Reserves at home instead of going to Tottenham, because we were annoyed that Bill Nicholson had dropped Jimmy Greaves.
Good news was Arsenal Reserves were rubbish, and we supported the opposition which was Spurs Reserves.
I am a loyal Spurs fan - I recently applied for a job as a steward at Highbury.
In our spare bedroom when we moved in there was Man Utd wallpaper up and we didn't strip it down for about 5 months.
