Post 66 Juventus 2 Spurs 2 If this is a rollercoaster, I love it. Yes, Spurs still have their dips. But the momentum built up over the past 3 years is definitely a case of “9 steps forward, 1 step back”. We have a young manager still evolving. His aides and coaches still learning. A […]Read more "Climb Every Mountain"
Post 65 Spurs 1 Arsenal 0 The XG stats for this game were apparently 3.0 to 0.6. It certainly felt like that. A win of 3-0, maybe 3-1 would have been the right outcome. So, the ‘real’ 1-0 result didn’t do justice to Spurs’ performance or dominance. At the H-T break to be drawing at […]Read more "AS EXPECTED"

Had United turned up and we’d won a tough match, say, 3-2 then I wouldn’t have minded. But to have only beaten […]Read more "Man that was fun !"
Post 61 Southampton 1 Spurs 1 A poor, uninspired performance by Spurs left 2 points on the table. We should have picked up all 3 and in failing to do so lost the chance to move level with Liverpool in 4th, albeit Liverpool’s loss to Swansea the following night left the gap at 2 points.

Post 60 18th January 2018 I started this Blog nine months ago. Spurs had just crushed Bournemouth 4-0 in the Spring sunshine. Since then I’ve sometimes asked myself why. I’m a private person. I’m not that interested in whether people find it, or read it, or not. I’m no good at technology or graphics. I […]Read more "The Story so Far #3"
