Miss You

Like most Spurs fans, I really didn’t expect us to get to the Champions League Final: we haven’t bought any new players in over a year, and we’ve come so close to being knocked out of the tournament so many times, I’m fairly philosophical about the match itself.

So, whilst of course I want my team to win, but if they don’t, then it won’t be the end of the world. We’ve exceeded expectations just by being there.

That said, whatever the result, tonight is going to be emotional for me, and not just because of the football.

As I mentioned after both extraordinary semi-finals were over, Hel and I agreed to meet up to watch the final. I’m posting this just as I’m about to head off to Brixton, where we have a table booked in a favourite bar who are showing the match.

Last night we exchanged messages, each of us warning the other that we’re likely to have a bit of a blub at some point, no matter what happens in the game.

Because had he still been with us, then as a life-long red, Hel’s brother and my best friend, Llŷr would undoubtedly have been with us tonight.

Believe

There was a really interesting article in The Guardian on Friday, detailing some of the rather more unconventional methods Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has used during the team’s training sessions in the build up to today, which focus on increasing the players belief and faith in themselves.

Pochettino – and, indeed, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp – are both men of religious faith, but some of the methods mentioned here (walking on hot coals and breaking arrow tips with your neck) go a little beyond that in my book.

That’s not a criticism, especially not should we win, they just raised an eyebrow in Dubious Taste Towers.

Some fairly predictable songs, then:

EMF – I Believe

And final-ly…

This Is The Day

Saturday June 1st 2019.

The day I never thought I’d see.

For this evening, my beloved Tottenham Hotspur are in the Champions League Final.

There’ll be several songs posted over the weekend, none of them actually about football (probably), which are intended to sum up my feelings. Tomorrow’s will either be really happy or really quite depressing.

But to…erm…kick things off, this:

The The – This is the Day
