    Hi all,

    I am an American (so be easy on me) coming to London for a weekend and want to see the Spurs play on Saturday December 3rd vs Bolton. I need some advice/help from everyone as seeing the Spurs play live is on my bucket list. Sorry I have a lot of questions but I would appreciate any help I can get from any of you.

    1. How hard are tickets to come by? I was planning on buying them from the site as soon as they were made available to non-members. Do I have a chance of getting them from the Tottenham website or will that be tough?

    2. I am staying in the London city center. Is it easy to just take the train to the stadium?

    3. What can I do for a good experience before the match actually starts? Any pre-game meets or pubs to go to? It’s my first time in England.

    4. When should I get to the stadium? Match is at 3:00 I believe.

    5. What section should I try and get tickets for some good seats? Nothing overly expensive please…
    Any other tips are appreciated. Thanks!

    1. Tickets may get to general sale, recently it depends on how well the team is doing (both teams actually). It will be much easier to get an international lilywhite membership and buy one when they go on sale to members. 2. London is quite easy to navigate. You have two tube stations, white hart lane & seven sisters then follow the crowd. 3. There are quite a few pubs near the ground, pop in and have a beer or seven. Also walk around the ground then try and see the players enter the ground. 4. If the game kicks off at 15:00 try and get there between 12:00 & 13:00 to get the full build up. 5. Park Lane (south stand) has the best atmosphere, failing that the east stand lower where it joins the south stand. Enjoy the game.

    I sit east stand lower inline with the penalty spot. Has great banter with the Park Lane and together has the best atmosphere. If tubes are closed or not running a quick train from Liverpool Street to Northumberland Park works for me, then you just follow the crowd to either The Bill Nicholson pub or Bell & Hare. Depends if you wan't to watch the team warm up, if so any time from 2.15 to watch them. I normally leave the pub 20 mins before hand, enough time for a quick bet.

    Best advice I got last year for a similar trip was "Don't eat the cheeseburgers!" Otherwise, everything written above is spot on. Enjoy and bring home a victory!!

    Also making my first trip to London,and WHL from Scotland,My son has become a bit of a Spurs nut.we are staying near Victoria Station.Is that a decent starting point in getting to the ground? another rather long shot question-is there any pubs that show SPL games,hoping to take in at least an hour of Celtic v Hearts before heading to the game,looking forward to visiting WHL,hope you can do the business against Wengers Fearty's and make it a successful trip for us tourists

    Hi Del. Victoria Station is ideal because it's part of the Victoria Underground line which is the only line that serves Seven Sisters station - your destination for getting to the stadium. If you have time, walk up the high street to the stadium. Nice little ritual, especially if it's the first time you're going. But if you want to get their quickly, take any bus with a number 9 on the end of it. These go straight up te high road towards WHL.Hope this helps. Enjoy the game!As for the SPL coverage, if it's on Sky Sports and there's no Premier League games on, there are pubs dotted around the high street which shold show it. But you'll need to show your match ticket for security reasons before they let you in.

    Remember, it's FOOTBALL not Soccer.

    Don't shout anything like "Lets go defense!" or "Yes baby!".

    It's Gareth Bale, not Christian Bale.

    I am jealous. I was going to wait a couple years to post this myself, but you beat me to it. I think what you need to do upon your return is post several pictures of your trip so you can share with your fellow football-starved Americans. My wife and I are planning a similar trip in the not-near-enough-future. We have downloaded a train map and have figure out which area we think would be best to stay (with some help from a couple nice gents on this board) that will give us easy access to the airport, touristy spots and White Hart Lane. we're also considering taking day trip out of London to see someplace else. Not sure where, maybe Canterbury? We don't know. But it's fun to plan!
