    Oh guys im so excited to be here right now! u guys have no idea haha , well first of all im a brazilian spurs fan since early 2000's....so i wuda like to ask u guys sorry for any grammar english error or anything else...my english is limited but i'll improve it...and i wont use any kinda of translator coz i prefer to do it by myself :y16:.

    So few days ago i was arguing with a another spurs fan about our jewish connections and basically everyone knows that there a large jewish community near Tottenham area and this is the reason theres so many jewish Tottenham fans. I've read about all of documents, articles n' facts about Tottenham history and all its says that our jewish connections comes our neighborhood. But this guy told me that theres were some jewish founders between whos founded Tottenham... He said about a guy named Stuart Leaman one of Tottenham Hotspurs founders... and he would be a jew... i did a research in internet to try find anything about that but i didnt find any article....
    So guys the question is : There would Jews founders in Totenham history ?? and u guys would tell me who they are? :question:
    I know that Tottenham was founded by twelve founders but im not sure if there were jews among them.

    Obs: I wont do any mention about Tottenham board coz most of u knows that Tottenham H. president is a jew !
    Thanks for attention guys !
    Up Spurs !

    Welcome to the forum, I'm not sure anyone has ever gone into so much detail about us being linked with the Jews before lol.

    Welcome to the forum unfortunately I cannot answer your question, but some people on here might know. Not the best choice of title for some people but I think your intention is good:p.

    Were our founders not grammar boys from a Christian church?

    Who gives a crap anyways, what matters is that we are all followers of a fantastic football club that are doing us proud at the moment so sit and relax in the crest of the wave we are riding at the minute.

    I wouldn't worry so much about our religious heritage buddy and just enjoy our fantastic football we are playing and promoting at the moment.

    On a side note. We have been linked to a few Brazilian players recently, which would you think are most likely join Spurs and how would you see them best utilised?

    plenty of die hard spurs fans on here who arent jews and plenty who are. The thing is the Uk isnt a very religious country anymore anyway i would suspect the majority of people who go spurs and support spurs would say that they arent religious at all. Also in an area like tottenham you've probably got large amounts of fans from every religion it's not really something that any of us think about tbh. Tottenham is our religion ;)

    I think the club was founded by Presbyterians. So there is a fundamentalist link.

    Going O/T, yet again, one of the bigger ironies of football of course is that Manure was founded by a scouser. Stupid fooker.

    Oye.....

    Tottenham have for it's history had Jewish chairman and board members, but isn't exclusively Jewish, I think the Afro-Carribean community is larger. Tottenham and the area around N17 is diverse compared to other boroughs. The term Yid is a term of endearment that Spurs fans use, not necessarily an identification with any religion. The nickname comes from other supporters antisemitic abuse. The origin is two-fold, the Jewish ethnicities of some of the supportes and what being called "Yid" represented for some of them, which is classic antisemitism. Basically Jews represented a bottom social class which they looked down upon, to be called a Yid or even a Jew to the ignorant mind had negative connotations. There are a lot of origin stories but the one I like to believe and it fits is that Arsenal fans started calling us yids pre-WWII when they were the class of the First Division. To them we represented inferiority similar to how many in the country viewed Jews, hence calling us Yids. Instead of being offended by it we flipped it around, "Yeah we're yids, but a Yid Army".

    the term YIDS started as a racist chant towards spurs fans because the area was predominantly jewish, we as spurs fans turned it round and took it as our name and began using it and chanting it as yid army

    Tottenham Hotspur was founded by a guy named Hot Spur from Tajikistan. He was also the assistant of Iron Man!
