This week SDS had the opportunity to catch up with one of the true pioneers of the football VLOG.
Well known for recording the experience of attending football matches with their Grandad. Their natural ability to project the story, accompanied by an infectious enthusiasm for all things Lillywhite , has quickly turned ‘We Are Tottenham TV’ into a hugely successful You Tube sensation with their own channel followed by thousands of loyal fans.
This week we welcome one half of the successful WATTV duo – Ben Daniel
The Warm Up
My names Ben Daniel, co creator of WeAreTottenhamTV. I’ve been going to Tottenham since my dad brainwashed me when I was 7 years old in 1996. Completely fell in love with the club after I first stepped foot into WHL.
As a youngster, who was your Spurs hero?
As a youngster my hero was David Ginola. To win double player of the year in 1999, the year Man Utd won the treble says it all.
Who is your favorite player from the current Squad?
That’s a difficult one as we have a squad full of a stars now but if I had to pick one it would have to be Harry Kane, need I say more?
From World football, who would you most like to see in a Spurs shirt?
If I had the chance to pick one player in the world to sign for Tottenham it would have to be Mbappe. One of the worlds best players at 19 and will for sure go on to be the worlds best.
What is your favorite piece of Spurs memorabilia?
My favourite piece of spurs memorabilia is the stacks and stacks of spurs programmes that have been passed through from my family some dating back to the 50’s!

I’ve watched Spurs live all over Europe like places including France, Belgium, Spain, Italy, Cyprus and Holland
Which former player would you love to see in the current squad?
It’s got to be Gareth Bale, I was extremely gutted when he left
Most memorable Spurs moment?
The 2 that really stick out for me was beating Chelsea in 2008 Cup final and the scenes after we beat City in the champions league play off in 2010
Who was your most disappointing Spurs signing?
Oh god we’ve had many over the years but I think Sergei Rebrov or Helder Postiga have got to be up there.
Which Spurs players (3) would you chose to join you if you were on ‘Come Dine With Me?
Haha I think I would have to pick Sonny, Dele and Aurier
Who would be in you all time Spurs XI (4,4,2 formation)?
