Saying that he couldn’t remember the last time he’d looked forward to something being over quite so much, Tottenham fan Bert Kay today admitted that his entire week has been leading up to the end of today’s north London derby.
Ahead of a match considered by many to be the most crucial tie between Tottenham and Arsenal in years, the 29-year-old revealed that he has been counting down the minutes until he can leave White Hart Lane and enjoy the rest of his weekend without having some kind of panic attack.
“I’ve tried to keep myself distracted at work but I haven’t been able to stop daydreaming about watching the players depart as my heart returns to something close to a normal beat,” said the fan, adding that result of the game hadn’t entered his mind once and that, in truth, he’d simply be happy to get out of the stadium alive.
“This is what it’s all about. The packed stadium, the referee blowing the whistle and all 22 players walking off so I can go home and stop worrying. It’ll be magic.”
At press time, Kay was in disbelief that in less than six hours he’d be free from thinking about football for at least an hour or two.
