Tottenham Hotspur Message Board
I just read a thread, and someone mentioned comparing stats between Yids and Hammers. This made me curious, as I wanted to see what West Ham have got to chirp about. They surprised me. I was kind of expecting Division 2 runners up every second season. here we go:
European Cup Winners' Cup Winners: 1-1 draw here.
UEFA Intertoto Cup Winners: WH 1 Spurs 0. Only desperate teams play in this.
UEFA cup Spurs 2 WH 0. This is looking better.
Some general stats that WH cannot boast:
Spurs European Cup Semi-Finalists, winners of Anglo-Italian League Cup.
Old Division 1 - spurs win 2-0. Oh, and spurs have been runners up 4 times.
Old Division 2 Champions 2-2. Spurs also runners up twice.
FA cup Spurs 8 WH 3. Spurs also runner up once.
League cup, Spurs 3 WH 0. Spurs also runners up twice.
Charity shield. WH shared once. Spurs won 4, shared 3.
The other honours are pretty much Play off winners (WH), which is pretty lame, and Spurs winning some pre season tournaments. WH might have some non-league honours, which go back 2 centuries and dont count. Spurs also has some golden oldie honours not mentioned.
All stats from wikipedia, and I've copied and pasted. I know that the gooners and Liverpool etc would piss all over us. However, from my perspective, I feel the Yids piss all over the Spammers. What are your interpretations?
Hang on though....lets not dwell on the past.....its the present that counts.....they are a whopping two places above us.....whilst we struggle to avoid relegation they are marching into Europe....break out the claret n blue bunting and jellied eels.....lets have a knees up!!

Normally I hate getting involved in this rubbish - I'd like to talk about football, if I wanted petty bickering I'd go to a playground - but there are more than four teams in a league... you need to beat everybody else too. Good luck with that.
(And I don't really think you can count the last game of last season, Man U had long since gone on holiday, they only turned up out of courtesy for Wigan and Sheff U)
In case you hadnt noticed...you got dumped out of the cup at the first hurdle last night..he he.
Where was you giant killing prowess then? Possibly the most boring game Ive seen all season. Still you are mid table and out of both cups so Curbishly has worked wonders to turn you lot around......what a genius.
Personally i feel the honours are too one-sided to Tottenham to really compare the two teams.
I hear theyre out of all the cups early again.Oh well at least we can live safely in the knowledge that we got further than them :)

Totally agree Alfy,no comparisson between the 2 clubs at all.
If these spammmers feel the need to go another sides board,bragging how they are a better team,I reckon they should choose a more appropriate club.
How about these guys, Dagenham & Redbridge??I'd have to agree that not only are West Ham a better club at present,they also have a prouder history........at the moment.
