The Interviews – Ashley Porter

The Warm Up

 I’m Ashley, I’m the vice-chair of Lancashire Spurs supporters’ club, and a We Are Tottenham TV fangirl. I’ve only been a Spurs fan since 2011, when I was roped into watching the football and then fell in love with the game and the club. 

As a youngster, who was your Spurs hero? 

I was 19 when I started watching football, so I’d say my first Spurs hero was Gareth Bale. 

Who is your favorite player from the current Squad? 

It’s got to be Kane, hasn’t it? I’m obsessed! But other than Harry, I’m a huge fan of Son at the moment. He’s magnificent and always has a smile on his face. 

From World football, who would you most like to see in a Spurs shirt?

If you’d asked me a while ago I would have said Neymar but his diving annoys me, so how about a glorious return for Gareth Bale?! 


What is your favorite piece of Spurs memorabilia? 

Tough one, as I’ve mainly been a fan on my own and haven’t really had many people to share it with or the chance to collect much memorabilia. I like keeping my tickets though. 

Where in the world have you watched Spurs live other than UK? 

Just Barcelona so far, but I’m heading out to Dortmund in a couple of weeks! 

Which former player would you love to see in the current squad? 

I think Modric could really do wonders for us in midfield.

Most memorable Spurs moment? 

The first Champions League game I attended, which was Real Madrid at home in 2017 and we won 3-1. My first European away trip to Barcelona in December 2018 was also very memorable! 

Who was your most disappointing Spurs signing? 

Soldado and Paulinho were a bit disappointing. I feel bad saying that though! 

Which Spurs players (3) would you chose to join you if you were on ‘Come Dine With Me?

Son, Rose and Dele. I think they’d be a laugh. 

Who would be in you all time Spurs XI (4,4,2 formation)?

I’m just going to pick players who’ve played for us while I’ve been watching to make it easier.

.. Lloris – Rose, Vertonghen, King, Walker – Bale, Modric, Dembele, Eriksen – Kane, Defoe.
