Worst moment as a Spurs fan?

Could be anything. A favourite player leaving? Bad away day? A particular result?

For me, the worst was the FA Cup Semi in 2010 v Portsmouth. Harry’s first full season I think. We’d won the LC in 2008 and got to the LC Final the year after - so had a degree of cup pedigree. Going well in the league and Portsmouth about to get relegated.

I was too young to remember 1991, our last FA Cup Final, so was desperate to see us make it. Chelsea beat Villa the day before - the team we’d beat in the LC Final two years ago.

But this Portsmouth team were shart. One of their best performers, Jamie O’Hara was our player, so had to sit the game out.

What followed was 90 minutes of insipid, soul destroying football, topped off with an extra 30 mins in which we some how managed to concede twice.

As a fan you accept sometimes form goes out of the window, the under dog has its day, but the sheer expectation I had in the lead up to that game left me beyond deflated. A horrible, horrible day.

Thankfully we picked ourselves off and qualified for CL with wins against Arsenal, Chelsea and City, but 10 April 2010 is, for me, my worst experience as a Spurs fan.

CL final. Hadn't been feeling great for a few weeks before and was signed off work. Was starting to feel better and went to Madrid and had a superb seat. Had hope (which we all know is what gets you in the end). Then 1 down after a few mins and not really looking threatening for the rest. The biggest game the club has ever been involved in and it was like we didn't treat it as such. Not ashamed to admit I felt quite emotional leaving the stadium.

The City 4-3 loss is the angriest iv ever been with football.

Can't appreciate the good times without the bad.

Lloris letting Sanchez half hit effort bobble through his hands to give 10 man Arsenal a draw at the Lane. We would of gone top if we'd won that game.

Arsenal winning the title at WHL ( twice ). Really low moments, especially the second time.

Losing to Coventry in 1987 Cup Final. We were such favorites for that one, and was the first FA Cup final we had lost, ever.

Last year's CL final. Never get a better chance to win it, and never watch a single minute back over again,and never read a single article on it, blocked it from my memory the second the final whistle went.the final minute

I asked a similar question to a Spurs mate.
He said the 1987 League Cup semi final replay in which Spurs were 1-0 up with 8 minutes to go and managed to fack it up by losing 2-1 to Arsenal. What made it worse waz that Arsenal beat Liverpool in the final giving them their first trophy in 8 years.My mate held Spurs responsible for that.

The above and the treachery of Sol Campbell
The anger levels were just as bad as they were in 1987 for him which is understandable.He felt like his wfife had cheated on him

Scuuumble isn’t worth a mention. No man is bigger than the club. The worst things are always about the collective, adding his name to the list just gives him the notoriety he revels in. I’d be surprised if any Spurs fan actually would list that. All it showed was what a disgusting, treacherous, cowardly, manipulative, lying, selfish, arrogant arrsehole he was - the man has no integrity, no morals, no balls, he’s driven by money and fame. He wanted the infamy of being that guy, he gets a kick out of it. Yeah he won a few trophies, but he could’ve won them at other clubs. That act is the main thing he is remembered for and that act just shows what poor personal character he has - his legacy is one of lies, cowardice and betrayal.

Losing the semifinals of fa cup v Portsmouth knowing the final would’ve been a easy one.

Pretty much every semi in the last 10 years that we didn’t turn up to.

Have to say, the CL final has done me some damage.

I’m 38. I’ve seen the absolute dross and I have to say the Jol era really gave me hope. I think because we’ve made amazing strides forward, you kind of hope we’ll take another ‘next step’ but that is now so huge that I know we never will.


But that display in CL final was criminal.

We are Arsenal😳

But they would pint out that they won a few cups whilst also maintaining Top4 but never actually challenging (which is what I think we are now)

5th September 1970. Trudging out of the Arsenal stadium in the rain. Lost 2 nil to two George Armstrong goals, switched on the tranny to get the other scores and heard that Jochen Rindt had been killed at Monza

Really great to hear such varied experiences. Some of the more obvious ones in there, but also some one off games that appear very personal. Fair play.
