King's Testimonial FanPost: Videos and Updates

God Save The King

n.b. this post was previously an appeal for people to get together and share coverage as Spurs' official communication was that there would be no coverage. There will be highlights up tomorrow (13th May 2014) on Spurs TV.

In the comments I've tried to put together a coverage package for posterity. Please do feel free to contribute your images, Vines and quotes etc!

Hi all,

As many of you doubtless are aware, this Monday coming (12th May) sees Spurs play a Spurs legends XI including Ledley King, as a tribute to the great man. Spurs have a microsite dedicated to the testimonial, with updates, interviews and videos from behind the scenes, including Ledley training.

I emailed Spurs' customer care and ticket office emails to see if there were any plans to televise the match, to produce a DVD afterwards, or to stream the match on Spurs TV as sometimes happens with e.g. youth games.

I am sorry to report that the news is not good.

Thoughts

Now, I do wonder - if Spurs themselves aren't going to make anything, couldn't we? I mean, even if it's just a collection of photos and videos or something, crudely shaped together into a memento, wouldn't that be worthwhile?

Is anyone able to go, and does anyone have video-editing/stabilising abilities? I think this should be a pretty special day, and it would be nice to have something to bring to people who can't make it.

In truth, I'm starting to think that I might have to try to get to it myself, but it's going to be difficult and I have an exam on Thursday, and a tute on Tuesday morning.

But like... I mean, the legality of it is probably a bit tricky - I imagine anything produced would have to stay very much bootleg and not promoted publicly if it were to happen, but I can't face not having seen or having any record at all of the match celebrating Ledley, one of the club's genuine legends.

Let me know what you guys think.
