Anyone but Tottenham - 20 Nov 2010
One of the good points about not owning a television is that it makes a
great excuse to visit my local pub to watch a game of football. I am a Tottenham fan, I shall not apologise. Today was the north London
derby against Arsenal at the Emirates stadium. Tottenham have not won away at Arsenal since 1993.
The vast majority of the pub are ardent Galatasaray fans, with the odd Besiktas, and even fewer CSKA Sofia fans thrown into the mix. Due to the popularity of English football at the moment just about every game is available on the pub telly. My friends and neighbours have adopted the anyone but Tottenham team, unless of course we ever played Fenerbache.
So todays match. I missed the first 30 mins but remembered in time so off I went to the pub hoping we might at least snatch a draw. I was greeted at the pub, the match on in the background with big cheers and smiles, never a good sign! It was already 2 -0 and from the comments of the pub could easily have been 4 - 0. I consoled myself with a beer and sat meekly in the corner. Half time could not come quick enough, the second half looked like it could be painful.
Gareth (last weeks best Player in the world) Bale had been anonymous, where was the promised return of Jermaine Defoe, and Gomes had had a blinder for the opening goal. Ever the optimist and a sucker for punishment I informed the pub that Tottenham would score three in the next half or I would by a round! Luckily in Bulgaria this would only set me back about 5 euros so I wasn't being that generous!
If only I had gone to the bookies as well!
So I would like to say a big thank you to Gareth (best Player in world - this week) Bale, Mr Fabregas for playing goalie without gloves! Rafael (best signing of season) van der Vaart. And not least Younes (best goal since 1993) Kaboul. Oh and everyone in my pub for offering me a beer afterwards!
It is not often that you get to crow as a Tottenham fan, so when it happens it is so much nicer, and recently we have been spoilt, Inter Milan anyone?
