If you’re a glutton for punishment, few teams will satisfy your greed in quite the same way as Spurs. Just like England, the potential is all there – beautiful football, glorious history, crisp white uniforms that gleam in the sunlight. But still they stumble. For those who love them, the love runs deep, but be warned, the life of a Spurs fan is littered with heartbreak.
Where to go: White Hart Lane, 748 High Rd, Tottenham, N17 0AP. tottenhamhotspur.com. White Hart Lane rail.
Ticket price: £32-£81 available from tottenhamhotspur.com and via ticket exchange from stubhub.co.uk.
Where to drink: The development vultures were circling The Antwerp Arms, 168-170 Church Rd, but a crowdfunding campaign was backed by local MPs and celebs, and it’s now set to be north London’s first community-owned pub, and it’s a corker.
Where to eat: Tottenham is home to a big Turkish community, which means you can skip the roast beef, eel pies and fish and chips here in exchange for perfect kebabs from Istanbul Empire (665 Tottenham High Road) for probably the best pre-match meal in London.
