Post 57 I began supporting Spurs in 1961. We’d just done the Double.

But […]Read more "Returning Home"
Post 53 Football is my passion. But even my favourite footballers don’t come close. Not even Greaves or Mackay, Ginola or Gascoigne, Bale or Kane.

Post 44 I’m not sure how many people have noticed this, but Spurs remain undefeated with Davinson Sanchez in our side. We drew his first appearance when he came on as a substitute against Burnley.

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

Post 26 18th August 2017 What does our club stand for? At this crucial time for Spurs, it is important that the club stands for something more than financial prudence. On the pitch, Spurs have long been known for playing a certain type of football – entertaining, with a flourish – even if at times […]Read more "Standing for Something"
