I wasn’t able to get to the Spurs game but I listened to it on the radio and the atmosphere sounded great. We deserved to win by the sound of it. You have to be wary when you score so early into a game and you’re trying to hold on, but it didn’t seem that way for us. Yes, Spurs had a patch where they played well but we sounded very comfortable.
As for the atmosphere, it always is great at the Boleyn for local derbies and for games against Tottenham, especially given it was our last game against them and we had the chance to stop them going top of the league, but it was also under the lights at the Boleyn which always feels that little bit more magical.
There is just an aura around the ground for evening games. It just adds that little bit extra excitement. I can remember plenty of special nights playing under the lights, like when we beat Newcastle 8-1 or the cup game against Everton. You just felt like the fans were even more behind you.
Hopefully these special nights can be replicated at the Olympic Stadium. Wouldn’t it be great to have another Spurs or Liverpool game from this season to really get the ball rolling in our new home? I think what has happened this season on the pitch has really helped people get more excited about moving.
