    It's a joke since Celtic is a Catholic Club and Rangers is a Protestant club.

    Wow, Dalglish is one? That's interesting...

    Spurs are rightly favorites but over 2.5 to 1 is a pretty good price worth a punt.

    Celtic have always signed protestants. Danny mcgrain was another superstar for us that was/is a protestant.

    I have two good friends who are arsenal supporters, and they've never been too bad about the usual vitriol heading my way as a Spurs fan, but it's picked up a lot over the past couple of years simply because they've unconsciously recognized who the better club are now and are overcompensating

    You should also learn that football in England existed before the EPL was invented and that football still exists outside of the EPL.

    Also on topic, given the choice of Arsenal or Tottenham 90% of neutral fans would pick Tottenham. Arsenal are the epitome of a plastic club.

    The biggest derbies for Arsenal, Chelsea and West Ham is with Tottenham for a very specific reason.

    Arsenal are probably the least plastic possible, the huge global fanbase stick by the team no matter how they play, and have been supporters for years. Spurs however, have mostly bandwagon fans who recently started watching football, but they change teams when Spurs bottle it like always.

    Huh? Your post intimated that Tottenham was those clubs biggest derby "for a specific reason" (literally what you wrote) and didn't mention Millwall at all, so I'm confused.

    My bad, from what I got from your post it suggested that Wst Ham has a different 'biggest rival'.

    Well, in this case you're right, Millwall is definitely a bigger derby for West Ham (I don't think Tottenham supporters place the level of importance to West Ham that exists vice versa anyway).

    I was more interested in what the reason is that you were alluding to.

    I'm not exactly sure why either, but they must be doing something right if all the main London teams hate them the most despite them being only moderately successful.

    If their fans mostly consists of bandwagons that just recently started watching how can they already changed teams when Spurs have yet to bottle anything? Your post as usual makes absolutely no sense. The newer Arsenals fans on here are worse than the 2 notorious ones. I miss T M L.

    They started watching 3 years ago and changed because Spurs bottled a title challenge year after year. Seems logical. How on earth is that not logical? Are you just trying to deliberately misunderstand?

    In what world did Spurs bottle a title the past 3 seasons?

    That is 100% not true. What are you even talking about?

    I guarantee you most fans in the USA who picked Tottenham did so because of Clint Dempsey or Brad Friedel.

    Nice to see Dempsey doing some good.

    Kind of a pointless discussion though. All teams reaching a certain level of success/visibility will always attract "new fans" that won't necessarily be as loyal as fans supporting teams that aren't successful/visible.

    Even more pointless coming from an Arsenalfan. Arsenal got a lot more fans worldwide than Spurs and obviously many of those would be the kind of fans AB13 is claiming Spurs got. Obviously just another wind up.

    It wouldn’t surprise me if that reason was that Tottenham was traditionally the Jewish club.
