COME ON YOU SPURS!
There are plenty of ways for supporters to show loyalty to their club but few are as bizarre as 55-year-old Tottenham fan Gary Lane’s decision to change his name to Gary White Hart Lane.

The Togolese striker has entered the last year of his deal with the north London outfit and as it stands there have been no new talks to tie him down to an extended deal.
And CaughtOffside understands that Brendan Rodgers will look to make a move to bring him to Anfield as he continues to worry about the state of his forward line.
With Daniel Sturridge’s injury still dogging him, and Mario Balotelli’s form not getting any better, the manager is aware that he will need some added firepower in order to maintain some sort of consistency as the season progresses.
The Reds have already been linked with a move for Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema in the new year, but with his price set around the £38m region, Rodgers is keen to seek out a cheaper alternative.
Adebayor has endured a rocky time with Spurs, and though he has found himself back in the squad this season the club would be open to moving him on in order to use the money earned from his sale to strengthen their own squad.

England Squad For Euro 2016 Qualifiers With San Marino And Estonia With Daniel Sturridge Left Out And Some Surprise Call-Ups
Hodgson names his squad for the upcoming match.
England manager Roy Hodgson has named his 21-man squad for the upcoming Euro 2016 qualifiers with San Marino and Estonia as Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge is left out.
Reds boss Brendan Rodgers spoke to Hodgson ahead of the matches to ask him not to include Sturridge as the 25-year-old continues to recover from a thigh injury last time he was on international duty.
There are some more surprise exclusions as well, with Arsenal and Manchester United youngsters Calum Chambers and Luke Shaw only being deemed good enough for the Under-21s.

This extreme supporter did it for ‘banter.’
One committed Tottenham Hotspur fan has shown his love for the club by changing his name by deed poll to Gary White Hart Lane.
The 55-year-old was called Gary Lane before the change and has revealed that he decided to start the process for ‘banter.’
“I’d been going for so long and my surname was already Lane,” the newly dubbed Mr White Hart Lane told the Surrey Advertiser.
“And I like a bit of banter. I know a lot of people at Spurs, some of them with stalls up there. That’s what happens when you’ve been going for 40 years.
“When I tell people my full name on the phone they can crack up.
“But if it’s an Arsenal or Chelsea fan they can get the hump. And when I told my mum I’d changed it, she nearly fell over.”
There is a more serious note to this decision though as his son died aged just three-years-old and it was a source of distress that he never got to travel with his dad to watch Spurs.
Although raised in London Gary now lives in Knaphill, Surrey and therefore has to make a 116 mile round trip to see his beloved Tottenham.
His house and body also act as a shrines to the North London club, with memorabilia and tattoos adorning them.
Tottenham host Besiktas in UEFA Europa League as north London side look to recreate memorable European nights
They’re here. The mad set of Besiktas supporters to descend on north London have arrived in their thousands, ready to show Tottenham exactly what European football ought to feel like.
With the dust having settled from last Saturday’s game, Dan Rattigan takes a look at the tactics deployed by Pochettino and discusses whether this is the way forward for Spurs, especially away to the Sky four.
The contract for the initial stages of the construction have been signed, clearing the way for building work to commence
Tottenham Hotspur have reached another milestone in the construction of their new stadium, signing a £50m deal with engineering company M Anderson Construction.
Tottenham employed M Anderson to build their recently completed training ground in Enfield and clearly liked the work they did, handing them the massive sum to begin work on the foundations and super-structure of their new stadium.
Sky Sports report that the proposal sent to Haringey Council giving the engineering company the contract for £49,773,727 has been accepted, and the council have also given permission for the demolition of Fletcher House, a listed building on the Northumberland Park site.
These developments come as a rare positive development in Spurs’ battle to build their new ground, following news that they must go to the High Court to contest Archway Sheet Metals Ltd.’s appeal against a compulsory purchase order.
It is this legal obstacle which will now force Tottenham to spend a season playing at another ground, with Sky also reporting they are considering Upton Park and Stadium:MK as possible temporary homes for the 2017/18 campaign.
We are not sure if this shows devotion, insanity or a bit of both, but one Tottenham Hotspur fan has changed his name by deed poll to Gary White Hart Lane.
The 55-year-old was previously known as Gary Lane, but he has decided to change his middle name…
