    It's better to fail aiming high, than succeed aiming low: Bill Nicholson

    Before my time, but good enough for me.

    You picked Spurs after a season that ended with Bolton and Middlesbrough beating us to the European places eh... you really must have been seeing something remarkable in the way we were playing!

    Hoddle, Ardiles, villa, Archibald, crooks, Roberts, perryman.

    They were my original heroes. From the first time I went to the Lane and sat on wooden seats in the Paxton I was somewhere I will always remember as home.

    Even if they do fuck with my emotions on a regular basis I couldn't imagine being anything but Tottenham.

    As the inventor of the term spursy only I know the true meaning of Tottenham Hotspur.

    I live in North London. There's only one choice.

    I had to be taught never to take sweets from a stranger.
    Yet There was also something instinctive built into the DNA that told me Woolwich were bad, avoid at all costs, long before I even understood.

    As much of a legend the man is, I don't like that quote.

    I'd be much happier to win the FA Cup, than to not win the CL

    Spurs legends, both. The ethos of our great club.

    How about: Spurs have to be the best in the land, not the second best.
    Another great quote attributed to Bill Nic

    My family lived in the UK for a moment before coming to the US. They're Georgian Jews and bonded with the community, I guess. So Tottenham fandom has been passed down the line. Although my brother supports ManU and for that reason alone he is an embarrassment to my family.

    Fair comment , but considering we haven't even won one of those under the current ownership, or even reached a final, maybe by aiming a little higher we could reap the lesser rewards you crave.
    I'd say Nicholson/Blanchflower knew their stuff.

    Yes they did, but winning the FA Cup is glory, and coming 2nd is not.
    So the quote is flawed.....if you use that quote, you should be be content with last season. We sacrificed the cups to try and win the PL.
    We failed aiming high, so why is it not good enough....why don't you see the echoes of glory in it? You just see failure and no trophies.

    I got into watching the EPL in college and the university I went had the same mascot so I felt it was meant to be. Also Bale was fun to watch.

    I use to bartend at bar that hosted an Arensal support group in NC. They were all asshole and never tipped the bar staff. I asked a guy who was their biggest rival and the next week I showed up in full Spurs kit. Been hooked ever since .

    Born in Plaistow, lived a stones throw from spammers ground. Mum's side of family Spurs supporters, dad's side were spammers. They divorced when I was about 4 years old, so I was brought up with Spurs side of family (thank god). That was back in the sixties, just about remember the double side. Went to my first home game in 1967, week before the cup final with the chavs. Been going ever since.

    No real choice in it.Born in north London into a Tottenham family.They chose me,not me them.
    What is unique,despite many people(well West ham anyway)accusing us of being glory hunters,we really can't be.Yeah,we have had a lot more success than many clubs, but compared with others?!
    Its in ya blood.I would watch them play home games on a on a cow field should it come to it.
    Though even i draw the line at an Athletics track in stratford....
