Matt Harris began writing about Tottenham Hotspur way back in 1990 when articles first appeared in The Spur fanzine. From there, he was involved in teletext updates via Sky Sports and has written match previews for Unibet and other online fan sites.

In terms of following the club, Matt has been suffering a whole lot longer: 1972 was his first game and it all started positively enough with a 4-3 home win over Stoke. Since then, he’s witnessed glory and despair - not always in equal measure - and he remains hopeful that one day he will see Spurs lift the league title.
