Hi, loved the article , and although I am a Spurs fan , i am not Jewish . But many of my friends are , and they are fed up to the back teeth with this debate . I was 7 when chosen to be a Spurs fan , and even back then I was referred to as part of the Yid's , but it was out of endearment . There obviously were times when it was used to try and wind me up , but I always turned it back on the sending party with " yes thats right I am a YID , AND PROUD OF IT " which was met with a sag of the shoulders and the person/people walking away with nothing else to to say . Now I dont even get many taunts a year , unless a friend who is an opposition fan (you know who you are) and I have a little bit of banter through the famous North London divide(derby), the usual " travelers/nomads from Woolwich amongst others " to YID without hate!! , and yes an Arsenal supporter and a Spurs supporter can actually be friends without any problems between us , and i am sure there are many others . So to cut back to your great article , Thank you for braving this debate , which should not even be a debate , and PLEASE , to the FA , concentrate on our national team development , and actually getting on top of the teams making the hissing noises , and actual hate fueled yid chants that come when Spurs play away , and you know who they are , because almost every game in this country is recorded or watched live by millions of paying/non paying fans , and they hear this disgusting noise that you obviously dont , or you are racist/anti-semitic , and actually condone other clubs making them ? So if its ok for other teams to make such noises , then its ok for all Spurs fans to call themselves YID'S or the YID Army !! or a Spurs fan if thats how we feel ....COYS.....COYY.....
