Hoping with Lloris, Kaboul etc ... will have a new wave of French fans..... people over here either love or detest Arsenal ... no middle ground. Hopefully we can pick up on those who detest them

Family from Paris. I'm not too sure whether they like Wenger or not. Think they do due to him being French and Arsenal.

Why don't people like him?

Because he's a bellend?

I'm half French, was living there during the CL season but now back in London. People on average know very little about Spurs compared to the Manchester teams, Chelsea and Arsenal, with most of them seeming to support one of the latter two. A lot of people really started getting behind them though when we were doing well in the CL, Bale is pretty popular.

Yep agree with Teemu they don't like him for the same reason he is generally not liked in UK ... he is a Tosser

Yep. I'm french, and except from big football fans, no one knows that much about us. I've heard people telling me "I'm sure you didn't even know them before their CL year". Yeah... right.
But starting to get little attention with the good football we're playing and french players coming. Medias have been talking about us a lot these days of course, with the Lloris saga. I'm afraid right now we're the evil club that is benching the best goalkeeper in the world. But that should change soon.

Good point about the "proper" big football fans. They probably know more about Tottenhams history than Arsenals ...had many chats with French people about players like Hoddle, Waddle, Gazza, Ginola all very much talked about as opposed to Adams, Parlour, Winterburns etc

BTW I was at the Montpellier v A**** game last night ...Arse were so lucky that the ref was rubbish and Cabella kept falling over Belhanda didnt have his shooting boots on ... 10 shots on target as opposed to 4 for Arse. Montpellier played them off the pitch in the 2nd half.

I'm English but I moved to Marseille a few months ago. I'd be interested to know if there are any other Spurs fans around here (apart from my two young sons and only because I told them to :) ).
