Stories from the season...
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).
Continuing your stories and recollections of season 2004-05 with a score prediction that got away and Mendes memories from Old Trafford.
MY STORY is not a happy one - well sort of !
Before the Southampton game at home on 18th December, my two mates and I were talking about what we thought the score would be as we often have a bet.
Anyway, I turned to them and said something along the lines of 'I reckon we'll smash these lot today about 5-1. I might put a fiver on it!' Both my mates laughed and told me not to be stupid and that my predictions are always wild and over the top!
Well needless to say, it was with mixed emotions that I cheered Robbie Keane's goal in the dying minutes of the game to make it 5-1!!!
That money could have come in handy for Christmas too...
Maybe next year eh!
One nil to the Tottenham
I had a season ticket for two years but I only got to go to one game this season. I became a member so it would be easier to get tickets. I sent away for Manchester United away (my first away game outside of london) not expecting to get it. I was so excited when the ticket came through and I couldn't wait to go.
On the day of the game the meet for the coach was at 1.45pm and I was awake by 6am in the morning. I made my way to the train station and bought a couple of magazines and papers for the long journey ahead. On the coach I got talking to a man who had been going to Man Utd away for years and had never since a win let alone a draw.
I entered the stadium and took some photos to remember the moment. Our support was fantastic and easily outsung the United supporters. Then it came to the last minutes of the game and Pedro Mendes shoots and scores (well that's what we thought).
I started to celebrate and then I reliesed it was disallowed but I decided to carry on celebrating because I was so happy just to be among the Spurs support on the road. Then United got a free kick on the edge of the box and everyone went silent.
Paul Robinson pulled of a magnificent save and we were happy again. The final whistle went and it was a much deserved point.
I couldn't wait to get home and tell the story to my mates - what an experience, I will never forget.
