Transport

Got coach twice, train the rest. First time we got the train, we went from Watford, as we usually do, only there were awful roadworks on the M1 so we were pretty late. Then we finally got to Seven Sisters to find the last train before kick off had just left…followed a Spurs fan outside and jumped on a bus, got off outside the ground, legged it and up the seemingly endless stairs, up to our seats…just in time for the ref to blow the whistle to start the game…awesome timing! In general though, its not bad by train, just a bit packed, and White Hart Lane Station is only 5 minutes from the ground.

Food & Drink

The chippy just outside the station does a lovely chips and curry, but there’s literally a million choices to eat on Tottenham High Road.

Inside the Ground

In my opinion, the upper tier is the best away end in the Premier League, probably the Football League actually. Flawless views, brilliant atmosphere, plenty of space downstairs. Unlike Bolton too, even though it’s high up, it still feels enclosed and close enough to the action. The lower is pretty decent too.


The East Stand, 2010

Atmosphere

Definitely one of the best in the Premiership. The fact that you are so close to the Spurs fans definitely helps, as when they sing, you feel almost in the middle of it, so when both sets of fans get going, its very impressive indeed.

Anything Else

I took a friend to White Hart Lane one season who had never been to a match before. I had spent years trying to explain to her what the big deal is, and said I just hope we score a goal at least, as there is no way to describe the absolute madness when one goes in…we went 1-0 up after 2 minutes…I think she understood! Though it was even funnier when we scored the second, as she is only quite small compared to me, and when it went in, I lifted her up onto my shoulders and jumped around like a loon! Classic away trip!


The West Stand, 2006

Overall

I love it, one of my favourite ‘regular’ away grounds.
