West Ham United Vs. Tottenham Hotspur: A Brief History of the London Rivalry

West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur meet tomorrow at White Hart Lane. The match may go great lengths to deciding each team’s fate for the 2010-11 season.

The fixture marks the first time the sides meet since the decision to award use of the Olympic Stadium to the Hammers in the wake of the 2010 game.

Yet these are all very recent and ultimately temporal concerns in the more than 100-year history that exists between the two London sides, a history dating back to a time when West Ham wasn’t West Ham and the Tottenham organization was barely a teenager.

Tomorrow’s match is just another EPL week 30 game, one that happens to be pulling a freight train of local history behind it.
