Tottenham vs Norwich

At last, finally, I attended my first Tottenham game at White Hart Lane thanks to a very generous expat friend who got tickets from a client. I get slack from all my hard-core Arsenal supporting friends, including my beloved husband, but I stand by Hotspurs even if they sold Gareth Bale for a cool €100 million to Real Madrid.

My friend also lives in West Hampstead so we met up for lunch before taking the overground to South Tottenham for the 3pm kick-off against Norwich. Earlier this year, I saw Arsenal stage a last minute comeback against Norwich at Emirates Stadium, so I expected nothing less from Tottenham who ended up beating Norwich 2-0.
Sigurdsson scored on both occasions!
White Hart Lane is a far cry from the state-of-the-art glittering Emirates Stadium -- it's like comparing the S.F. Giants stadium in downtown San Francisco to Oakland A's stadium in the industrial zone of Oakland.   But they have a loyal fan base and the atmosphere was amazing. 
On Sunday, whilst hanging out with friends in Chelsea, we saw Frank Lampard and his WAG (wives and girlfriends) at the The Hollywood Arms having a relaxed evening with his two daughters. It's still early in the Premier League but shaping up to be an exciting season.
