This was back in the 70s. After graduating from Cambridge, my uncle got a flat on High Road in Finchley (I hope I'm spelling it right). Most of the people there supported the Spurs back then, and I remember going to the match against Arsenal. A large section of the crowd chanted "boring, boring, Arsenal" throughout the whole match. Look at them now.

I remember thinking that the Arsenal kit looked like that of Wari FC in old Dhaka, a club my father played for during his university years. Don't rememeber much else about the match.

"And do not curse those who call on other than GOD, lest they blaspheme and curse GOD, out of ignorance. We have adorned the works of every group in their eyes. Ultimately, they return to their Lord, then He informs them of everything they had done." (Qur'an 6:108)
