Football / Puchasing A Kit
« on: March 30, 2014, 08:18:16 PM »
Sup Y'all,
I live in the states and I wanted to a buy a kit but the only site that sells them is a UK one and with shipping it would be 115 USD.  Is this my only option?

Also, does anyone know a site that sells jerseys and other gears. Would be nice to have a track jacket of some sort.

Thanks  :beermug:

Football / COYS!! The Official Thread Of The Lillywhites of North London
« on: August 31, 2012, 03:16:00 PM »
I'm not sure Tottenham has a thread on here and if they do, feel free to delete this.

If not, allow me to make this one!  Pretty sure I'm the only Spurs fan on this forum but hopefully someone will prove me wrong!


Now one of the greatest Football Clubs in England and Europe, with passionate supporters all around the world, it is hard to imagine that the club was built from such humble beginnings. According to legend a small group of boys gathered in Tottenham High Road in 1880 and decided to form a football team. Many were already members of the 'Hotspur Cricket Club', which played its matches at nearby Northumberland Park, and they wanted to keep themselves occupied and together as a team during the winter season. So the new football club was created and named 'Hotspur' the same as the cricket club. The name had been chosen because Tottenham and the surrounding district formed part of the great estates of the Percy Family. Sir Henry Percy was the son of the first Earl of Northumberland who had been nicknamed Harry Hotspur and had a reputation as a bold and courageous warrior.

Their early matches were played on the vast expanses of Tottenham marshes before moving to their first enclosed ground in Northumberland Park in 1890. They had become members of the Football Association in 1888 but it was not until 1896 that the club joined the Southern League. Then in 1899 they moved from Northumberland Park to their present ground at White Hart Lane because they were attracting crowds of over 15,000 spectators for their matches. It was when still in the Southern League that the 'Spurs' first won the FA Cup in 1901 beating Sheffield United 1-0. At this time they were still a non-league and so became the only non-league club to win the FA Cup a feat that is never likely to be achieved again.

This week I am joined by Carolina Panther's CB Darius Butler (@DariusButler27), as we talk about the transition from New England to Carolina, the competition and tempers in the Carolina Training Camp, and who is the better skateboarder between Lil Wayne and himself.

I'm also joined by Blazersedge.com/CBS Sports Writer Ben Golliver (@Blazersedge), as we discuss the Olympic performance from the basketball team, If the Lakers are the team to beat in the West, and why Portland fans have a problem with Bill Simmons.

As always, if you have any questions or comments, tweet me @Jrthewriter or email me at Jrthewriter@gmail.com. Look out next week for more news, interviews, and a new contest to get you prepared for the upcoming NFL season.


We are back and with a reinvented new podcast! The "Off The Bench Podcast" will give you the latest rundown on all your sport needs and hopefully some funny commentary to entertain and inform you with some of the best athletes and analysts in the game.

On this episode of the Off The Bench Podcast, we interview Detroit Lion's Linebacker Justin Durant (@JDurant52) about the competition in training camp, the controversy surrounding the Lions, and where the Nas album rates. I also interview Marcel Mutoni (@Marcel_Mutoni) of Slam Magazine's online site slamonline.com about Steve Nash and other off season trades, as well as the Olympics.

Remember to respond to the contest question in the podcast @Jrthewriter or Jrthewriter@gmail.com for your chance to win a 2012 mens Olympic basketball shirt.

Cheers Everyone!  :beermug:
My name is Jason (JR) and I am a writer up here in ATL.  I do mostly Entertainment (Billboard Magazine, The Grammys, etc) but I also dab into sports once in awhile (CBS Sports, MLS Soccer, etc)  I've been lurking on the forum for a good year now and I gotta thank y'all for being a supportive group.  I'm Trinidadian and Russian Jew (mixed with other things) so it's good to see the support from my people.

Hats off to Tallman for keeping up with the latest Trini player news from all over! I'm from Philly and write about the Union, so if y'all ever have questions about Keon let me know.  BTW, he played f*cking great yesterday! A header about 1 ft away from being MOTM. 

Umm, so yea, I'll be posting a lot more and once again thanks for being a damn good supporting forum.
