As you can see I’ve been around for quite a while but don’t post much (I’m a lurker I guess).

Here’s a genuine question. Who or what is Harry Hotspur? I end up reading his stuff on Newsnow sometimes and he (?) seems so anti Tottenham while claiming to be a fan.

Is he a genuine supporter? A troll? Or an Arsenal fan. Nothing he writes seems positive about the club.

What’s the story?

He’s a prick.

He’s certainly not popular among the mods on here, and I believe he’s passed off SC info as his own. Just comes across as a vile person. Every fan base has them.

He’s basically Piers Morgan, Adrian Durham and Katie Hopkins.

He says controversial things to get attention and clicks. And clearly it works.

Just ignore him.

He’s also made up some crap ITK in the past and then promptly deleted it when what he’s claimed to be true and turned out not to be.

His members are fairly vacuous. And ugly. Not like us handsome professors

He has carved out his tiny little corner on the interweb where he spews a lot of vitriol towards Levy/Enic etc. He is your glass half empty kind of guy. Claims to have direct link to the club where he gets his ITK but rarely does said ITK come to fruition. To each his own I guess.

Agree with the above sentiments, he's a glass half empty fella who's looking to secure clicks from the pessimistic fanbase. Worst part about him is that he shuts down debate. Having read comments on his posts he doesn't tolerate anyone challenging his opinion. Best to stay away from it, although I know what you mean about it always popping up on NewsNow.
I used to get quite a bit of news from NewsNow but it's turned into an advertisement for clickbait more so than ever in the last few years.

The podcast used to be reasonably entertaining.

I presume he fell out with the guy he used to do it with.

The Internet wasn’t around when the Dandy-About-Town was popular. I think you’re looking at a fake account

If I had got in earlier I'd have said you'd asked a genuine question and you're going to get some very honest replies :)

As an aside, in addition to being able to chat all things Spurs (and more), ITK, news, pics, informed opinion, I have to say, once in a while, what a great filter SC is.

If I ever see a headline that appears a bit needlessly negative or vague, rather than click on endless versions on different sites hoping to find an actual quote, reasoning or evidence I just go straight to SC where 99.9 % of the time I am not the first to have seen it and it has already been scoured for real info, assessed and critiqued.

This has probably saved me several man weeks of reading clickbait crap in the 13.5 years that I've been a member and also helps to deprive those sites of oxygen

Thank you as ever SC (y)

Actually he is a pathetic little weasel who sells T-shirt’s with ‘Enic out’ on them. Like who gives a flying fuck. He has this obsessive hatred of Levy that is amusing at times till you get bored with the repetitive rancour. The biggest joke on the internet is that he is a Spurs fan. An even bigger joke is that people leave comments on his articles. I hear he makes them up. He also has a face you most definitely want to punch really hard.

Pretty much this. He's definitely a fan but he doesn't like the current ownership and constantly criticises Levy. Obviously Levy isn't above criticism at all and i'm no BSoDL but essentially it seems that if you disagree with Harry then you don't know what you're talking about and you're a 'flat earther'.

Does anyone remember when Matthew Norman used to write in the ES? He used to be a big critic of Levy too. Not sure if he has mellowed towards him in recent years.
