I was extremely proud of the way many stood and clapped in a respectful way with dignity as the crowd all responded to the the announcement of Reyes passing very positively, it showed us in a very positive light, I didn't hear any boos which was good.

On the other hand I know it was only a very tiny minority but I was equally ashamed and embarrassed by 6 or 7 bellends who thought it was clever to break out into singing and slurring the words "96 wasn't enough" over and over again hoping it would catch on, as I made my way down Tottenham High Road towards Seven Sisters. Thankfully it didn't. It was obvious that they'd had way more than a few too many, but that's still no excuse and I know thay every club and village has its idiots, in some cases and in some clubs the ratios vary even if overall it is in the minority across all areas.

Especially moronic seeing as one of the 96 was Spurs: http://www.spurscommunity.co.uk/ind...hillsborough-fact-colin-andrew-sefton.108246/

6pm, walking down from Seven Sisters, catch a flicker of light in a phone box.
And again.

When I got close I realised theres a bloke in there cooking smack on a spoon.

I heard there were gun shots fired late on the high road too.

It's a bit of a shit hole but those are new lows for me.

Can't find anything in the news about the shooting, but I definitely heard them talk about it on the radio yesterday.
Apparently shots heard and casings found by police along the high road around midnight.
I was walking (staggering) along there at about 11ish :unsure:

Tottenham is actually worse when our lot descend on it.

I saw a flare near the end of the game, but to be fair that could just have been someone with one of those really heavy duty vapes.
Some kid let off a firework and then legged it, that was the only point I thought it got a bit stupid, other than that I thought the atmosphere was very good, even heading back to the tube was pretty amiable.

I definitely enjoyed it more than I would have had I stayed at home or gone to the pub

In all seriousness, that guys life must be really, really bad if that's where he is.
He's obviously got nothing left but hard drugs and probably won't be alive very long.
It's pretty much rife in the aree if you ask some of the locals.
The green behind the shops on the way up from Northumberland park station has its own druggy patrols... apparently.

Had a cracking day / night (apart from the obvious...)
I would happily do that again but bigger screens please
I watched half the second half from the bar so I could see who had the ball...

i watched half the second half from the bar because I was waiting to get my beer served.

Well, seven or eight minutes.

I think this summer should be spent making sure all the beer pumps work properly and getting the staff trained up.

The 10k pints per minute claim seems a bit of fallasy to me.
