    Bump - Im in the football paradox again. 50% looking forward to Saturday and 50% not at all.

    I've got the final day of a holiday with the fam to negotiate, then it's back to reality and dealing with nerves for Saturday.

    October 3rd 1987 was my first ever live match - my friend Andy Stan's 8th birthday trip. Spurs v Sheffield Wednesday at the Lane, West Stand. 2-0, Paul Allen and Nico Claesen.

    I was at Wembley for the 91 semi final, been in the players lounge after a game vs Norwich (4-0, Lineker x3 & David Howells), been to umpteen games at the old WHL and away games all around the Midlands (Villa, Blues, Stoke, Cov at Highfield Rd, Leicester at Filbert St).

    I've enjoyed teams led by the likes of Venables, Jol, Redknapp and Pochettino, endured the likes of Gross, Graham, Santini, Sherwood, and Pleat's various caretaker stints. We've had some shocking players over the years, and some absolute belters.

    We're in the Champions League final...

    First game was 29th September 1984: Spurs 4 - Luton Town 2. Goals from legends Mark Falco, Micky Hazard, Steve Perryman and Graham Roberts.

    I went with my Dad (RIP) and my school mate Lee from Liverpool - will be watching the CL final on Saturday with Lee as well.

    I don't think Spurs will win but COYS

    great little period that - 83/84 season, I was in the Paxton, right behind goal, when Mark Falco's late game header was somehow kept out of top right corner by the ridiculously good Nev Southhall, to effectively win Everton the title that season. If that had gone in, coming after consec FA Cup wins, and with a UEFA title to come, could have changed Spurs late 20th /21st C history.

    As could tmmrw night, 35 yrs later.

    First game was a 2-0 home defeat to Stoke in 75, only time we ever had a seat at a football match until it became all seating.
    Had a season ticket with the old man until I left home, saw some great players, some great games, and not a negligible amount of shite. I've seen Diego Marradonna and Gary Docherty wearing the chicken badge, winning a european final at the lane and losing at Highbury on boxing day, it's all been good fun, but today is the pinnacle of being a Spurs fan.
    I'm scared of getting a proper tonking tonight of course, but hoping for both Tottenham and the football world in general that the right result will prevail. Whatever happens I'm gonna be royally pissed.

    In my time, I've watched (In no particular order) Gary Doherty, Dean Austin, Paolo Tramezzani, Kazu Toda, Goran Bunjevcevic, Kevin Scott, Clive Wilson, Tony Gardner, Darren Caskey, and 1001 other piss poor footballers.

    Now 6 hours away from watching Spurs in a European Cup final. Madness.
