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).
It all comes crashing down in the States and Irish eyes are smiling in our latest batch of your stories and recollections of season 2004-05...
From John R Tongue: Manchester United 0 Spurs 1 (well it should have been as we all know). Just where was the justice? And to add insult to injury, it lead to a calamity in our house. Business has brought me to central Florida but I'm still able to follow the lads on THTV and Fox Soccer Channel, or down at the Cricketers Arms on I-Drive in Orlando. We'd done well enough to gain a creditable draw when Pedro launched that amazing strike which Carroll spilled into the net. I could see it was over the line and I'm 4000 miles away!
Anyway, that split second sent me jumping into the air, rejoicing a rare away win over United but then double (or should that be triple) disaster ruins the day. My knee catches the edge of the coffee table (which should be named a beer table for obvious reasons), sending my pint crashing across the floor and smashing the glass table top in the process. Then, with me hopping around in pain, splashing in beer and broken glass, cheering for all I am worth, the 'goal' gets disallowed!
And you thought Pedro Mendes was disappointed with the decision! Happy Days!
From Gerry Kelly: Being Irish, I'm very proud of the Irish influence in the current squad. Myself and my wife, who is also Irish, go to all the home games and as many away
games as possible always bringing our Irish tri-colour with the THFC cockerel.
The highlight of the away games was at Anfield, firstly the way the Spurs supporters observed the minute silence to commemorate the 16th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster - there wasn't a sound. And secondly that day, Erik Edman's goal - definitely goal of the season.
The highlight of the home games has to be the final game against Blackburn. When the team did a well deserved lap of honour, Robbie Keane came over to us, took off his shirt and handed it to my wife. She adored Robbie before but now he will be forever remembered as his shirt has been framed and hangs proudly in our lounge. Here's looking forward to the 2005/2006 season.
From Jason W, Lancashire: As a Spurs fan living in the North West I was chuffed to bits with the Carling Cup draws! The only game I missed was the Liverpool game at White Hart Lane so maybe it’s my fault we didn’t get any further in the competition! If you also include the fact that I’m just a 45-minute walk from Ewood Park and I made that game as well I had a 100% record with Spurs last season and saw 14 goals hit the back of the opposition net.
From Jamie, Colchester: I think the funniest moments of this season has to be the tunnel antics going on at White Hart Lane. I remember one game when Ledley King walked onto the pitch for the second half on his own, as the rest of the team had stopped in the tunnel. Also Paul Robinson punching Chirpy on his way out of the tunnel was another great moment of a good season. Looking forward to next season, hanging on to our main assets, ie. King, Robinson, Defoe, and a couple of fresh faces could see a very successful season, perhaps Everton's fourth spot? Who knows, cheers for all the good work lads!
