When a draw is sometimes a win
In a week that saw Spurs superstar Gareth Bale carried from the field at the end of an impressive visit from FC Basel in the Europa League, Tottenham Hotspur needed a performance against a resilient Everton team on Sunday to keep their Champions League dreams alive for next season.
The PrettyGreen resident supporters club were out in force (and voice) at White Hart Lane to make sure that happened, hosting media on behalf of Under Armour in their snazzy hospitality box. They say you should never mix business and pleasure but I’m sure Spurs fans across the world would identify more with an acute nervousness than the feelings of ecstasy so often experienced by the Manchester United’s of this world. And if you visited the Farringdon office on a Monday morning after a particularly disappointing match, you’d see what football loyalty can do to a person first hand…
Even our guest journalists seemed to catch the bug as the second half heated up, despite their allegiances falling to the usual suspects of Liverpool, United and *ahem* Arsenal, amongst others.
The food was fantastic, the ‘Lane electric and the result… well. Sometimes it’s best not to let the little things get in the way of a good day out. A 2- 2 draw in a match which could really have gone either way – let’s give the three points another go next week.
Six games to go in this year’s English Premier League season and you can count on Under Armour and the long-suffering PrettyGreen Spurs support to be cheering them through every one.
