Obviously I will be accused of being obsessed by Spurs by writing this, so Spurs fans please don’t bother as I’ve heard it before.

2 – being alerted on twitter to a paragraph in the Guardian pointing out the disparity between the wealth of Spurs’ owners and the threats to Haringey council to ship out if the little stadium project wasn’t subsidised.
