  1. Dear Sir, I have been a Tottenham fan for nearly 50 years since the great double side of 1960, there have been up and downs but I thought that the performances against Arsenal,Chelsea and Manchester city where some of the best I have ever seen, I have often thought over the years when I have watched my beloved Tottenham that they dont often play as a team but on those three occasions they played as a team and really wanted to win. I was really proud of them as a team. Harry and his coaching staff has gradually molded them into a team. The team have certainly made me proud over their performances this season. lets hope we do really well in the champions league.
