The Warm Up
This week I took a trip to Dortmund to watch the mighty Tottenham Hotspur in Round 16 of the Champions League. My second away trip abroad this season which has also included PSV Eindhoven and a seat in the home end (family section just above the Ultras).
This trip would be different as on this particular occasion as I would be sat in the away end (Block 56). Always a lively experience, involving lots of beers, songs and meeting fantastic like minded people who live and breathe Lilly White.
During the Monday night excursion to Dortmund (after traveling 13 hours across Europe) I visited the Alten Markt. A small bar on the edge of the main Square. Through the door and into the melee of Spurs songs and beers showers, a bearded Gentlemen passed me by and without hesitation I recognized him as Stace.
I’d followed his Twitter account for some time as its one of the rare sources of information on the New Stadium that offers a perspective through the eyes of the Construction Team. This account and a couple of others have stood above the fake news that have consistently dashed or dismissed our hopes of finally playing in our new home this season. I have to admit; I’ve never been so interested in Fire Panels and Public Announcement Systems and probably never will again.
Anyway, great to meet you Stace and many others on this amazing trip.
Spurs go Marching on to the UCL Quarter Finals.
