Fan File – Another Simon

16 Feb

Name: Simon Wilson

Year of Birth: 1983

Where are you from?
Arudel, West Sussex

Where do you live now?
Bruce Grove, Tottenham

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.

Champions League Double Header, Dortmund and Real Madrid

12 Feb

Both our favourite clubs are playing tomorrow, Ajax host Real Madrid at the ArenA and Spurs host Dortmund at Wembley. A bunch of folks are going to both games so look out for any of our flags flying around. For those not going, we’ll be in the snug bar in O’Reilly’s, just off Dam Square, for a kick off at 21:00. We’re reliably informed that both games will be watchable from the same spot so a good place to catch them.

Fox Hunting – Leicester @ Wembley

7 Feb

Fox hunting this weekend. Sunday, playing Leicester at home. We’ll be in O’Reilly’s with some flags. Come down. It’s the early kick off at 14:30 but there is Six Nations the same day so be there early. Snug is booked.

Chelski

23 Jan

Thursday night is when we face Chelski for the second leg of the League Cup semi final. Or is it our reserves? Anyway, we have the snug bar in O’Reilly’s booked to witness it. See you there!

Sunday At the Cottage

17 Jan

Spurs are off to the Cottage, we’re off to O’Reilly’s. Fulham away, 17:00 on Sunday, which gives you time to have done all your Sunday stuff and then settle in for a few pints with us and watching the game. In town? Will you be hungover? Time for some hair of the dog. See you there to see how we do without any strikers, apart from John’s bestie Llorente (just joking mate….)

Red Devils

12 Jan

It’s Man Utd in the late game on Sunday and we’ll be in O’Reilly’s as per usual. Big game of course so see you there for the kick off at 17:30

Chelsea in the League Cup

It’s the Carabao cup and it’s Chelsea at Wembley on Tuesday. We’ll be in O’Reilly’s for the kick off at 21:00
