    Any Spurs fans in Malta? Do all the people supporting Pieta Hotspurs also support Tottenham Hotspur FC?

    No not really. There is another team on the sister island of Gozo called Victoria Hotspurs.

    We holidayed in Malta last week and tried to visit the Spurs Supporters Club - found it in a quiet street in Valetta but it was closed - no sign to say when it was open - what a shame - would ave loved to see the museum and some fellow spurs. Watched the Sunderland match in The Pub - the last drinking place of Oliver Read - and now a tribute to him. Dreadful result and all the worse for being with arsenal and west ham supporters....

    A valiant effort, maybe the Malta Spurs can explain themselves in here.

    I was born in Imtarfa - but not been back since - wasn't called up for the national squad either which left me with no choice but to wait for the English to come calling.

    I go to Malta regularly and have been in the club in Valletta, they are a very friendly lot. Also there is a wine bar in Birgu, Cantina St Angelo, which is owned by the international secretary of the supporters club, pay him a visit and enjoy a glass of wine and a chat with him.

    Hi all

    The Spurs Supporters Club is open daily, mornings and evenings till late. Opening hours 10.00 till 11.45 and 18.00 till late. It is run by our Club president Carmel Debattista.

    On a different note, the Cantina Wine Bar down in Birgu has closed down due to my family commitement, unfortunately.

    Any Spurs fans who happen to be in Malta around the end of September and want to join a Spurs night out for a fantastic typically Maltese dinner in the surroundings of mother nature, can contact me on my mob 99406433. We are having porchetta and Maltese pasta dish plus unlimited wine, beer,s/drinks, water and coffee for the price of EUR28.

    not spurs related but a bloke i knew at university used to play football for malta national side then he got injured.

    i've got a maltese friend called Lara, she's there at the moment. i'll ask her if she lives in Valletta

    this thread has taught me something. that our corporate slogan "in a world full of rovers...there is only one hotspur" has at least two counterexamples just on the island of malta!

    many pubs / people at home have satellite tv and get sky italia

    a lot more have digital cable tv installed (2 dig cable tv companies in Malta)

    quite a few have 2 or all 3... lucky sods

    at the club we can watch all spurs league and carling cup games live on one of the two local cable tv companies.

    the other cable company shows FA cup and uefa cup matches and hasn't ever missed out Spurs so far:pray:

    on cable the games all have commnetary in English so they must be relayed from ITV / Sky / BBC ?

    i'm sorry i wouldn't know about the wigan game on satellite - i dont have satellite at home, just the ''league and carling'' cable tv thing. offski to the club or to my local when its uefa or FA cup time:beer:

    sorry mate - i neglected to reply in time - for what it's worth the other cable company (the one showing FA cup / uefa cup games) is called ''GO".

    Melita shows all the BPL games live as you state :)

    might be useful if you are ever in Malta and want to catch us live:beer:
