Happy Sunday!

I've been on a bit of a nostalgia trip this morning, and came across the video of my first ever spurs game at WHL - v Leicester. We lost 2-1. Share your first game videos too!



I tell you what, nothing makes me appreciate the current squad more than seeing clive wilson and stuart nethercott in a line up...

That Heskey looks useful. Sign him up.

Can't find a video. It was a 1-1 draw against Middlesbrough at the Lane. Pretty dire as far as I can remember, lit up by Juninho.

That was my only game as a kid - my next match at the Lane was Davids' first home game (also against 'boro) in 2005 and I've been lucky enough to attend regularly as a member and season ticket holder since.

My old man grew up Spurs in North London and 'brought me up proper' even though we lived in North Bristol. One of his best mates was a Bristol Rovers fan and knew some of the Directors, so arranged for my Dad and I to go to the Spurs-Rovers game as a guest of the Bristol Rovers board. All the way up to the game, he was giving it large, predicting a 3-0 win for the Rovers and saying how we would see the light and support 'the Gas' from thereon in.

Anyway, it didn't quite turn out like that. Colin Lee scored 4 on his debut, I sang 'We want ten' and Don Megson got the sack soon after...

I was nine. We scored nine. And a username was born...

Against Everton in 2002. Christmas present for my dad from my mum. First time we all actually got to see a game at the lane, Despite living next door. A draw with both goals scored at the beginning, and I remember a lady holding her scarf in front of my view the whole game, or at least the good bits. But for me it was just the start I guess.

Mine was also against Leicester, but was in the Worthington Cup final. I think it was Alan Nielsen with a late winning goal!

The first game I went to was very uneventful 0-0 draw at home to Luton Town on Boxing day 1988 - I was very young myself and can only remember sitting on my dad's shoulders and Terry Fenwick missing a penalty

Before that though - the first game I can remember watching on tv is this

Thankfully I was a bit too young to really know what was going on and feel the pain of the defeat

Terrible quality vid but all I could find.

I was 12 years old and right behind the goal for that. We won 2-0 in the end - Razor Ruddock with the second. And here's a stat for you: I've been to see them play a further 14 times over the years (I know, not very many right? Call myself a fan!? etc etc) but I have never seen them lose. I'm basically a lucky mascot and deserve a free season ticket.

"Share your first game videos too!".......

Videos??? There wasn't even colour telly in September 1963 when we beat Wolves 4-3 under the lights. I remember being gutted that my all-time hero Jimmy Greaves didn't score.

FA Cup final 81 V Man City. IIRC it was the 100th FA Cup final too.

My Dad picked me up from a school camp in Wales, we drove to Watford, parked and caught the train in.

The smell of hotdogs, pissed fans and my Dad crying at Abide with me, I remember it as clear as a bell. Apart from Spurs' equaliser deflecting off Tommy Hutchinson, I can't remember much about the game TBH. I do remember the replay though!!

I can't find the video either, even though it was only in 1994! Away at Oldham, we were mired in relegation trouble, and the 2-0 win kept us up, goals from Samways and Howells. We were shiiiite in those days!

My first trip to WHL:

First time I saw Spurs on the telly:
As an impressionable 7 year old I was mesmerised by Hoddle. Spurs fan ever since.
