I realize this is an incredibly late post – for some reason I thought I already wrote a post on this, but alas, I was mistaken – but a few months back, a handful of Chicago Spurs took a trip to London to see our beloved Tottenham Hotspur play at White Hart Lane.
All together there were 11 of us Chi Spurs who traveled over to London and ultimately saw a 1-0 loss, yes – at home, to Aston Villa.
One highlight during the match, however, was that former Lilywhite Vlad Chiriches was subbed out while DeAndre Yedlin had his first Premier League minutes as a Tottenham Hotspur player. The match, although a loss, as mentioned already, was a fun game with Chicago Spurs and Sweden Spurs in full voice the whole match.
See below for some photos of the exciting trip with friends, or moreso, my weekend family.
As you can see, Chicago Spurs have a good time wherever we go. Whether it’s to London, the Atlantic Bar and Grill in Chicago where our ‘clubhouse’ is, or visit other supporters’ clubs in the United States, Tottenham has become a family to many.
The trip to London, although not my first time over to England, was one of my favorite vacations there as I was able to soak in the game day experience with my weekend Chicago Spurs family and then also reminisce once we all flew back.
I would recommend going overseas to a game, whether you’re a Spurs fan or any fan of a club in England or Germany or France or wherever, to just go and do it. It’s worth it.
