When did we all start supporting

Spurs or any other club for that matter. Have we any glory hunters like some United, Liverpool, Chelsea or City supporters, who only jumped on the bandwagon to support a successful side? Spurs have had their share of success in the past, have any of our supporters thought, oh look Spurs have won the FA Cup or a European Trophy, I will start supporting them.

I myself started supporting Spurs 1958 (Arsenal finished 3rd that season, and were destined to never finish above Spurs for another 10 years), being a local lad, when the team were languishing in the bottom four or five in the table, and at one point propped the division up, and were in serious danager of relegation all season, but escaped by a few points come the end of the season. Spurs were also about to get dumped out of the FA Cup, at what were then Third Division Norwich, so cannot be called a glory hunter in any shape or form. Billy Nicholson had just taken over an ageing side, and was about to reshape it. Little did I know the following season Spurs would be challenging for the title, and the season after were to win the Double.

Open to all supporters, not just Spurs ones.

As a Scot, naturally I was a big fan of the Germans when I was young.

Klinsmann brought me to Spurs. The others made me stay.

As long as I can remember.

I was born and lived less than a mile from Anfield and my first match was the 1968 Boxing day match against Burnley. Finished 1:1 and I was buzzing all the way home.
