Clint shares his views on the opinion held by quite a few Tottenham Hotspur fans on the obvious gap (or lack of) in terms of quality and performance between the sides.
After the discussions about the supposed differences' between Blackburn Rovers and Tottenham Hotspur I thought I'd do a little digging into the matter.
My best mate is a Spurs fan and as you can imagine there are a few heated debates at times but generally the banter is all good-natured. However after a few of the comments I have read from alleged 'real' Spurs fans giving off how much better they are than the small town club I got to thinking.
Now I have nothing against folk thinking their team is better than anyone else, there are a lot of the Spurs fans that have been giving credible discussions this week and after all Blackburn fans I'm sure do it with teams like Burnley and Bolton and vice versa but do when those 'real' fans do not even have the decency to take into consideration another team that is, well if we are a small town club, punching above it weight. I am sick of that type of fan lording it over Rovers, its something I'd expect of the new wave Chelsea fans lol. Now this type of thing goes on in football granted, after all there is a certain team called Arsenal hanging about!!
So as I have said this is a run down of Spurs' supposed dominance over the 'minnows' from Lancashire.

You tell me, apart from 1 relegation, 2nd place in the league and a Premier League title (seasons I did not go into, just because I couldn't be bothered) can somewhere tell me the outstanding difference between these two very good teams that try to play the game of football in the rite manner…
