Match visiting:
Tottenham Hotspur v Crystal Palace – 14 September 2019

Year of Birth:

Where are you from?
Gryllefjord, Norway

Where do you live now?
Oslo, Norway.

How long have you been a Tottenham Hotspur supporter?
Since 1976

Why did you start supporting Tottenham Hotspur?
I was 10 years old and was watching a game on a Saturday, and I think what I liked was the clean, white kit they were wearing. And Glenn Hoddle was kind of nice, but I was only 10 years old. I think it was also because my brothers were Arsenal supporters, so it was because of that as well. And I’ve never liked red!

What was the first game you went to?
I really don’t remember because it was in the ’80s… maybe ’87 and it was away, against Liverpool. I was visiting a friend who lived there. I can’t remember the score (we were kind of wasted)!

Who is your all-time favourite player?
Glenn Hoddle. Because he was my first football hero. You know, I had a poster and he was really cute and I was in love with him. If I was a bit younger, I may have said Erik Thorsvedt because he’s Norwegian.

Who is your favourite player currently?
That’s really hard because I like the players who never really do good things. Like Lamela, who’s had his problems and was out for a long time… and his brother died. I feel sorry him and I like him because I feel sorry for him. But I would say Son… or Lucas. It’s difficult! There are so many.

What was the best (live) game you went to?
I don’t know. It’s difficult. I can’t say. But for atmosphere, it was the first game I went to at the new White Hart Lane. It was against West Ham and we lost 1-0, but it was my first game there… I was with several friends from Norway and from Germany and from America, and it was just really great to be there. It was like the old White Hart Lane only so much bigger and better!

What was the best goal you’ve ever seen?
I don’t remember these things so well. The trouble is, when a game is over, it’s over. But I think Son’s second goals today! It was like a crazy goal because it looked impossible. So goals like that!

Can you predict the final score?
I’m a bit of a pessimist. I think Tottenham will play a lot slower in the second half and maybe make the score 4-2. I’m sorry.

The interview took place at half-time with Tottenham 4-0 up.
