Digging out a result

Post 68 Crystal Palace 0 Spurs 1 “I’d take another 1-0, but would prefer something more comfortable and enjoyable.” Post 67 Neither comfortable nor enjoyable. Yet another gritty, lacklustre and unlucky performance against Palace. But in the end 1-0 and 3 points. That’s all that matters. Two Seasons ago, Spurs draw this game. Our ability […]

A fifth consecutive away draw

Post 67 Rochdale 2 Spurs 2 (FA Cup 5th Round) Draws at Southampton, Newport County, Liverpool, Juventus and Rochdale mean that Spurs have now drawn 5 consecutive away games in all competitions, the joint-longest such streak in our Club’s history.

Post 63 Liverpool 2 Spurs 2 Spurs somehow contrived to deserve to win yet almost lost, and were grateful at the end for a draw. We gifted them a 1-0 lead, eventually dragged ourselves level, missed a penalty to win it, allowed Salah to dance past 4-5 of our defenders to go 2-1 down in […]

Man that was fun !

Post 62 Spurs 2 Man United 0   Brutal. Coulda – shoulda – been 5 or 6. This was a Spurs performance that was right up there. The result didn’t do it justice. 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 […]
