View from the opposition – Spurs:
A bit about you
Name: Kat Law
Current home town: Buckhurst Hill, Essex
Birthplace: Wakefield, West Yorkshire
How long have you supported your team? 37 years
Overview of your club:
Favourite thing about your home ground?
Probably the first person struggling to answer this question! We’ve been nomads this season, playing at Wembley after our home was demolished last May and counting down the days until we move into our new home in the Autumn.
My favourite thing is that our new home is adjacent to the site of White Hart Lane and that the ashes of our greatest ever manager, Bill Nicholson, have been re-interred at the exact point where the old ground overlaps the new. In the most modern stadium in the land, it’s important to remember your history.
Favourite match played by your team & why?
1981 Cup Final v Man City. The reason I support Spurs
Favourite player of all time who played for your club?
Ricky Villa. See above
About our forthcoming match against you:
Your favourite current player in your squad and why?
Toby Alderweireld. Outstanding centre half who would grace any defence in Europe. Controversially dropped for large chunks of the season after contract talks failed. Hugely popular and will be a big loss if not resolved this summer
Player in your squad we should most fear and why?
Christian Eriksen. A class act and our creative spark
Player in our squad you most fear and why?
Mahrez and Vardy have the pace and drive to cause us problems
Up and coming prospect in your squad?
Not been a vintage season for the kids. Winks is injured and Kyle Walker-Peters hasn’t yet made an impact on the first team but hopefully that’ll kick on next year
How do you think you'll do against us? Be nice to sign off with a win but the last game of the season often throws up some unexpected results
Last August where did you think you'd finish this season?
5th or 6th. We’ve effectively played 38 games away from home
Which teams did you honestly think would go down?
Huddersfield, West Ham and Watford
Describe your season in less than 15 words?
Usual rollercoaster and highly respectable finish, but ultimately no silverware
At the start of the season did you think Man City would win the league and if not who did you think would?
Probably, or Man United
If you could change 3 things at your club what would they be?
Ticket pricing, fan representation on the Club board, our FA Cup semi-final hoodoo
What is the name of your Trust? THST
What role do you play? Co-chair
Why did you get involved?
Because I firmly believe fans should have a voice in the running of their clubs. And I have a loud voice

Member of Supporters Direct’s England and Wales Football Council, FA Council supporter representative
