Tottenham 3 - Real Madrid 1
#coys #spurs #realmadrid #comeonyouspurs #championsleague
Today was one of those days that was the reasoning behind me moving all the way from Australia to London. In fact, this week has been excellent!
One of my life goals before coming here was to watch a Tottenham Hotspur game. I’ve been a fan for a while now, since the Martin Jol days, before when Gareth Bale was an outcast LB that was always injured and never really played.. back when I was 18 and we would watch the premier league highlights at North Sydney Bears at 8.30pm and go for a beer. Back then I chose Tottenham as my team, I thought they were pretty decent..steered away from the typical, Man U, Chelsea and Arsenal that everyone else supported. We finished 5th that year and that was a good year!
Cue 12 years later and here I am not only watching my first ever game in England, my first ever Tottenham game, but also my first ever Champions League game ever! And against reigning champions Real Madrid... Ronaldo, Modric, Isco, Asensio, Kroos, Sergio Ramos, Kane, Alli, Erikson, Dembele, Lloris, Davies, Dier!! F*@kin hell!! They were all there on the pitch in front of me. I never thought I’d get to actually see them play.. we were supposed to go to a game in Barcelona but didn’t because of the La Bombanera incident.. but here I was with @andreyishere1 watching in awe.. not only that, but we witnessed history, Spurs defeating the reigning champs and have already qualified for the next round!
I will admit there was a massive stuff up with the ticket pickup and we missed some of the game.. but let’s be honest.. to see some of the best teams in the world play eachother..☑️
Could not be happier.
And on top of that, I bought tickets to Above and Beyond!! Who literally control my musical life at the moment and will be seeing this Saturday. Im actually in awe
This feeling I have now, this energy that I’ve got to experience these new things and be part of this culture and take these experiences home with me.. this is why I left sunny Sydney. So that I have stories to tell.. so that one day I can say, “I was actually there once”
Now to head to work haha
