Post 25 Newcastle 0 Spurs 2 13th August 2017 Last May, after we’d murdered Leicester 6-1 (Post 11), I wrote that this Spurs team are building a habit of taking terrible revenge. I said if I were Newcastle, I’d be afraid. Very afraid. In the event, today’s retribution was surgical rather than bloody. The scalpel […]Read more "Job Done"
Post 12 Hull 1 Spurs 7 28th May 2017 Sometimes a week can seem a very long time. I travelled to France straight after the Hull game and have spent the past week with a dodgy internet signal. But following the atrocity in Manchester on Monday night, blogging about football was the last thing on my mind. Spurs […]Read more "Live in the moment"
Post 11 Leicester 1 Spurs 6 19th May 2017 Brutal. Revenge is a dish best enjoyed cold. Last night Spurs munched and spat out the team that cost them the title last season, and caused 2 dropped points at home earlier this season. Leicester were like sushi. Mostly they slipped down easily. Occasionally there was a […]Read more "Payback"

And yesterday, in the last ever match at the old Lane, Spurs defeated their most glamorous domestic rival of all; Manchester United. For […]Read more "Somewhere over the rainbow"

Sometimes it’s just adrenaline. Pre-fight nerves. Tension. Danger. But occasionally you just know. There’s a bullet with your name […]Read more "And so it came to pass"
Post 5 Spurs 2 Arsenal 0 1st May 2017 Yesterday was glorious. And, for me, yesterday was like meeting an ex-girlfriend and realizing she’s no longer important to you. For a while, after the two of you broke up, you worry about bumping into her. How do you look? Does she have a new bloke? […]Read more "Duel of the Fates"
Post 3 Crystal Palace 0 Spurs 1 27th April 2017 A gritty, uninspired one-nil. The type of victory that Fergie’s Man United teams built numerous PL titles on. Go away, don’t concede, nick a goal and get back on the coach with the 3-points. The very sort of victory that, as a club, Spurs […]Read more "To the Victor the Spoils"
