How long have you been a Tottenham Hotspur supporter?
Since I was about 7 years old.

Why did you start supporting Tottenham Hotspur?
I was originally a ‘glory supporter’ in 1991, basically, when we won the cup… and that was when I was electing a team, when I lived down South. Mainly because of Gazza and Lineker. Yeah, so you could’ve called me a glory supporter back in the day but not so much now.

What was the first game you went to?
Spurs v Portsmouth (at White Hart Lane about 10 years ago or so). I didn’t start going to games until much later on. But when I was living in Bournemouth, I used to drive up and down and try to see every game and build up as many loyalty points as possible. But the second game I ever went to was the 9-1 against Wigan).

Who is your all-time favourite player?
It’s a bit of a random one, but I like Jermain Defoe. I’m a big JD fan―a massive, massive JDF fan! I’ve met him a couple of times and he’s a lovely bloke as well.

Who is your favourite player currently?
Currently… I’ve got to go with Harry Kane. How can you not? He’s one of our own.

What was the best (live) game you went to?
That’s a tough one because I’ve been to a few decent games. I would say, for me, a couple of years ago, when we played Chelsea and we beat them 2-0… and you remember when Dele Alli was running along and he jumped into the crowd, well if you look closely enough, you’ll see me jump in and grab hold of Dele Alli, so yeah, that one sticks out in my mind because of the celebrations for the first goal.

What was the best goal you’ve ever seen?
Harry Kane’s one against Arsenal, when he curled it top-bins after they recovered the ball just off the by-line. Yeah, that one was on my birthday as well, so extra special.
