Post 42 Man United 1 Spurs 0 We are not a one-man team. Far from it. But without that one man, our ‘main man’, we are diminished. This isn’t to rubbish Janssen last season, or Llorente in the final half-hour on Saturday, or Son as a false-9 option. It’s to state inevitable fact. With Kane […]Read more "The Harry Kane Team needs Harry Kane"
Post 41 Spurs 2 West Ham 3 (Carabao Cup) Spurs are now P3, W1, D0, L2 against West Ham since this Blog began.

Wembley is entirely different; it’s in Brent, it’s leased, it […]Read more "No place like home"

Liverpool are meant to be Spurs’ bogey team. Wembley is meant to be a hoodoo ground for us. Both narratives were chewed and spat out by our players and […]Read more "Hoodoo? We do (words)"
Post 36 I love the photo of Lloris hugging Rose. In fact the whole photo … of Kane acknowledging our fans, Jan and Winksy arms around each other, Hugo giving Danny a french kiss. The whole image speaks of togetherness and it set me thinking. A long time ago (1980s) I used to travel to […]Read more "A rose in the sun"
