Much has happened in the four years since Darren was with us. This season at Wembley; the building of the new stadium in N17; a second and third place finish in the Premier League; back-to-back Champions League qualification and the appointment of our most popular manager of modern times. Plus the introduction of that away ticket price cap.
Darren would love the football Spurs are regularly playing and he would love nights like our Champions League game against Juventus. He would be celebrating how far we’ve progressed in such a short time.
So, raise your half time drink to Darren tonight. And take a moment to remember one of our own.
• A version of this appreciation is in the match day programme for the Tottenham Hotspur v Juventus game at Wembley on 7 March.
