The Story so Far #2

Post 40 25th October Tomorrow sees the release of Guillem Balague’s book “Brave New World”, an ‘authorised’ account of Spurs’ 2016-2017 Season interwoven with a biography of Pochettino’s life so far. Intriguingly, it is written by Balague in the first person as if it is autobiographical. Apparently, a lot of revision work went into striking the right […]

No place like home

Post 39 Wembley is not, and never will be, ‘home’. White Hart Lane was our home. And our magnificent new stadium will be home. We will remain in the same borough, on the very same site, breathing the same N17 air, living the same memories. Wembley is entirely different; it’s in Brent, it’s leased, it […]

A rose in the sun

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 […]
