I’m a freelance journalist who has written articles for The Guardian and the AP, among others. I’m currently working on a story focused on heart defects among footballers (with the story geared toward the 5th anniversary of the March 2012 Fabrice Muamba match)

I was hoping to speak with a supporter who was at the Lane that night who could vividly recount what it was like: the silence, the chants you heard, what you could see, what information you and the people around you were…

Is it realistically able to entice the top players in Europe?

Personally, I can see why a player would go there, if they’re cracking on a bit and want to make the most (financially) of their last few years of their careers. I can also see why if you’re on the periphery of your team after a drop in form or a managers decided he doesn’t like you, that it would be very tempting. If you’ve come from nothing, especially some of the South American players, then…

1) I desperately want us to win the Fa cup more than i want to finish in the top 4 as its been far to long since we’ve won it.

2) Poch doesn’t deserve as much stick as he is currently getting(not talking about on here).

3) Our attempt to provide backup/competition for Kane was a woeful failure, still far to much pressure heaped on his shoulders.

I find this really hard, coz the Spurs supporter in me always looks at the negatives, I look at the other teams strengths against our weeknesses and base my opinion on that, rather than the other way round.

I literally have no idea, I mean part of me thinks we should have no inferiority complex compared with the other 5 but I just feel we’re not quite there, in terms of competing week in week out, especially…
