Opposing Fans View: Tottenham
By Eye Of The Tiger
August 18 2009
Hull play Tottenham at the KC on Wednesday night looking to win their 1st home game of the season. Hull were unlucky not to get a point at Chelsea at the weekend, whilst Tottenham beat last year's runners up Liverpool. Ahead of the Game we asked Spurs Fan Chez Thompson AKA White Hart Princess88 a few questions.
How long have you supported Tottenham and why did you choose them?
My dad started taking me to the Lane when I was around 8 years old and I've been hooked ever since - so that's 13 years of supporting Spurs! With my dad, there was never a chance of me supporting anyone else.
Who do you consider your star player?
A lot of people would go for Robbie Keane or Jermain Defoe, but for me it is still Ledley King. Who knows how many England caps he would have got by now if it wasn't for the injuries.
With Harry in charge for the whole season do you think your side will achieve a European place this season?
Absolutely, I think a more than realistic expectation for us this season is to finish in the top six now that we've got a bit of stability again.
Who do you think will be Tottenham’s top scorer this season?
I'll go for Jermain Defoe - especially with how he performed for England in Amsterdam the other day.
With all in Transfer in's and out's at your club this summer and over the last 12 months do you feel you will have a settled squad this season ?
It's been a relatively quiet summer for us so far but I think we've bought well with an England centre-forward in Peter Crouch and one of the best defensive prospects in the Premiership in Sebastien Bassong - along with the Sheffield United youngsters.
Because of that, I do think we've got a fairly settled squad and are in a pretty good position for this season.
What do you think the score will be when the teams meet at the KC ?
I'll go for 2-1 to Spurs.
Which player in the Hull side do you think will cause your side Problems?
You can't look past Geovanni, especially after that free-kick he scored against us last season. Other than him, I thought your new guy Ghilas did alright when he came on against Chelsea, he looked lively.
How do you think the top 4 will finish in the premiership this season?
I think Chelsea will win the title this year, with Man Utd falling to 2nd place and Liverpool in all likelihood 3rd. After signing two of Arsenal's best players, I can definitely see Man City beating them to 4th - with us hopefully not too far behind. Our real challenge for the top four will come next season I think, this one is still a bit too early for us.
Who do you think will be relegated this season from the Premiership?
I just don't think Burnley or Wolves have enough real Premiership quality and I'm sorry to say that I think Hull will probably go down as well!
If you could have any rival premiership player in your side who would it be?
Steven Gerrard would look great in a lilywhite shirt.
Tigers Tales would like to thank Chez for her time and wish her a Tottenham good luck for the season .
