Never been to White Hart Lane before so went to this one with my brother in law who lives fairly locally (Hertfordshire). Went by train and arrived at Northumberland Park station (main line station on the London Liverpool Street line), only an 8-10 minute stroll away from the ground. Went to the chippy/kebab shop on Park Road just by the station. Food pretty good.
Drank at the Elmhust on Lordship Lane. Only a ten minute walk from the ground. A pretty large mock tudor type pub with 4 or 5 Sky Sports screens.  There were home fans and away fans in colours mixing with out any problems. Prices were okay (for London).
Ground was as expected after seeing on television. Atmosphere before the game was excellent. There was some pretty rowdy behaviour by a bunch of twenty something Wolves fans in the concourse area with bouncing and beer tossing going on without any intervention by the stewards, with I thought was a good touch, as they they weren't really doing any harm.
During the game the noise generated by the Wolves fans was immense with the Spurs fans not heard until at least 20 minutes in to the match. And even then not very loudly until the second half on a couple of occasions. Although it did help that we scored in the 3rd minute! We hang on to record a monumental 1 nil victory, and the fans went mental.
Getting back to the station was easy, and with no animosity from the Spurs fans. An overall excellent day and enjoyable away fan experience.
