The Interviews – Matt Halls

Welcome to the SDS interview page. This is for all members to tell us about yourself, your favourite Spurs moments and a chance to pick your all time Spurs Football Fantasy XI.

This week, Matt Halls takes time out of the fast lane to give us his view on all things Spurs…

The Warm Up
I have been supporting the Mighty Spurs since I can remember. First real recollection of going to a game was when I was 4 years old. Work life makes attendance for us all harder but I have always made it to at least 5 games a season.
1. As a youngster, who was your Spurs hero?
Steve Perryman. Solid and reliable “not bad for a hunchback” his own words lol
2. Who is your favorite player from the current Squad?
Toby Alderweireld. Jan and Harry run close but you can breathe a bit easier when he is on the pitch
3. From World football, who would you most like to see in a Spurs shirt?
Messi. Fed by Eriksen and playing with Kane……
4. What is your favorite piece of Spurs memorabilia?
Recently acquired thanks to our charity nights, Ray Clemence took his signed shirt away and got Lloris and Pat Jennnigs to sign also. 3 great goalkeepers for Spurs
5. Where in the world have you watched Spurs live other than UK?
On TV or Digital stream too many countries to mention. I feel I spend half my life panicking with the rest of the crew to find a TV showing it. Actually in the stadium I have been to Portugal, Holland, Germany,Monaco, Paris, USA and most recently the Champions league away leg at Real Madrid. Next up Juventus
6. Which former player would you love to see in the current squad?
Has to be Gazza. When we struggle to breakdown a side you need that bit of magic he could provide.
7. Most memorable Spurs moment?
Being squashed as a kid at Wembley in 81 not being able to see much , level with the 18 yard line until Ricky began his famous dribble.
8. Who was your most disappointing Spurs signing?
Well we have had some fiasco’s haven’t we? The wrong Boateng for example was a good one and then Sissoko last season carries it on but I will go with Helda Postiga.
9. Which Spurs players (3) would you chose to join you if you were on ‘Come Dine With Me?
Current squad Eriksen, Kane, Son . Past squads Clive Allen, Greaves, Gazza
10. Who would be in you all time Spurs XI (4,4,2 formation)?
Perryman, Mabbut, King, Bale
Ginola, Gazza, Hoddle, Archibald
            Greaves, Kane
Subs: Sherringham, Defoe, Erikssen
Extra Time
Favourite SDS moment
This will sound corny but my favourite SDS moment is actually being part of it. It is amazing that after so many years of being on my own, watching Spurs somewhere in a pub or bar, joining foreign Supporters Clubs by mistake (in some rather dodgy bars) that I am able to have such a good one locally especially being as intermittent as i am in attendance. It is what being a Spurs fan should be. Thank you all.
