i know its xmas and its time to be spent with the family , but i wanted to share my xmas gift with u all. ( not u ed)
i have just got tickets to the arsenal game at the lane. this will be my first time there not my first spurs game but first at thelane. and what a game to go too. so im now off to enjoy my day knowing im going to our biggest game of any season. really cant wait.
happy xmas fellow spurs fans from a very excited 29 year old who feels he is about 5.
Nice Christmas present Beni - somebody loves you.
Hoping to get my ticket for that game too as a result of the ticket cock-up for the CL game v Inter. They've promised priority for one game during the rest of the season those of us who bought the phantom tickets and I put the Goons game as my first choice.

defo the game to to pick, the wife is a star for sure. cant belive she go them for me.
the only thing is , if arse beat ipswich ( i think they will) then the game will be changed from feb26th to a later date. so comeon ipswich im dying to go to the match lol.
Too right, KM! Did you hear their loan player picking up the Wenger banner? The usual stuff...we played football...they played long ball...blah ...blah...blah, etc. When was the long ball NOT football? It's only football when you when you play like Arsenal apparently, they invented the game after all! Give someone proper credit for a change, Cesc. The Tractor Boys ploughed up your defence and were well worth their win. If it's fair, not dirty or cheating, it's still football, not rugby as the arrogant Barca bench warmer called it. Just because not everyone wants to pass the ball 40 times to move five yards doesn't make it rugby.
arsenal were very bad losers as always!
great to see ipswich beat them BUT sadly arsenal will have way too much for the poor championship strugglers in the return leg.
id be suprised if arsenal hit less than 5 at home to them.
would love it if paul jewell got a result at he goons, means i dont have to switch my time off work fo rthe big day. dont know where in the ground my tickets are yet but dont care.
whats the best stand to be in or doesnt it matter, does the hair stand up on ur body when the slow "when the spurs go marching in" kicks off , like it does on the telly??? cant wait to find out.
AS long as you're not in hospitality the atmosphere will give you the goose-bumps where ever you sit! Be settled and in place at least 20 mins before KO, you'll feel the atmosphere swell!! Enjoy!
what's that? this is 2011 and you, who lecture people like me, are now admitting that the arsenal game will be your first time ever at white hart lane! what a cheek you have. i started watching spurs at the lane as a schoolboy in the early 60's. i watched jimmy greaves' furst game for spurs, saw him score the most wonderful goal ever in a 52 thrashing of man united. i watched george best's third or fourth game ever playing against spurs and here is some johnny-come-lately creep who lives in benidorm is telling me, me?, to shut up!! why don't you go for a long, long swim in the med and play with some sharks or jellyfish! first time at the lane, huh!

Congratulations Ed, you're very privileged to have that sort of disposable income. Not everyone does, and I'd expect better of you than to judge someone for it.
And he doesn't live in Benidorm, so maybe stop the assumptions?
Beni, make sure you travel to Seven Sisters tube station and do the Seven Sisters Walk (as I like to call it); it takes about 20 mins but the atmosphere builds from when you see your first person with a Spurs scarf on the tube to more and more people joining the route, then you start walking round the stadium and hear the Yid Army shouts... you're gonna LOVE it! I felt physically sick with nerves on my way to the Arsenal Carling Cup game...
Where ever you sit, you will buzz your tits off!
I tend to sit in the south upper.
The view can sometimes be better in other seats, but the singing/banter/atmosphere is amazing.
Listen out for the south and east stands singing at each other, it makes me well with pride and a sense of belonging!
Good on you Beni, enjoy every second
Beni - as not_blonde says, taking the walk up the High Road (even if it's pi$$ing with rain) is particularly worth doing because nothing can beat seeing the stadium for the first time in the flesh so to speak.
And HighRoad's suggestion of getting in early is a good one not least because there's often a last minute dash to get through the turnstiles.
Have to say the atmosphere inside the ground is particularly special when the Goons come to WHL so make sure you have your singing voice in tune - altogether now
"Oh when the Spurs, go marching in,
Oh when the Spurs go marching in,
I wanna be in that number,
Oh when the Spurs go marching in"
