The Life of a Spurs Fan Summed up in 90 Minutes and 8 Goals

Thank God for the medium of writing, as I have lost my voice from screams of jubilation, as I watched the game of the season. It started off with the goal of the season, and arguably the goal of quite a few seasons. David Bentley showing his true colours, and where his loyalty lies, with a phenominal goal from 39 yards to put Spurs 1-0 up. But it wouldn’t be a North London derby if Arsenal didn’t come back, with the Gunners going on to lead 3-1. A mistake by Almunia let Bent through to knock home a slice of hope, before, less than a minute later, a poor misplaced pass by Alan Hutton let Van Persie restore his side’s two goal lead. Subsequently, Harry Redknapp showed his boldness by replacing Hutton with young Chris Gunter, who didn’t look out of place what so ever.

A slip by Gael Clichy led to Jermaine Jenas finishing beautifuly with his left foot, what seemed like just a consilation. But a deflected shot from Luka Modric which hit the post, allowed Aaron Lennon to tuck home the equalisier. One lucky fan made his way over the advertising boards and ended up at the bottom of the bundle. Although only one point, it will feel like a win to the players, the fans and Harry. Anybody who didn’t see the match, you will regret it for the rest of your life if you pass up the oppertunity to watch Match of the Day.
