Climb Every Mountain

Post 66 Juventus 2 Spurs 2 If this is a rollercoaster, I love it. Yes, Spurs still have their dips. But the momentum built up over the past 3 years is definitely a case of “9 steps forward, 1 step back”. We have a young manager still evolving. His aides and coaches still learning. A […]

AS EXPECTED

Post 65 Spurs 1 Arsenal 0 The XG stats for this game were apparently 3.0 to 0.6. It certainly felt like that. A win of 3-0, maybe 3-1 would have been the right outcome.  So, the ‘real’ 1-0 result didn’t do justice to Spurs’ performance or dominance. At the H-T break to be drawing at […]

Man that was fun !

Post 56 Spurs 3 AFC Wimbledon 0 The world’s 3rd Most Valuable Player notched 2 more goals as Spurs dispatched a spirited Wimbledon in the 3rd Round of the FA Cup. We have now been drawn to play away at Newport County in the 4th Round. It’s a shame for Newport’s club (financially) and their […]

The Power of Three

Post 43 Spurs 3 Real Madrid 1 (Alli 2, Eriksen) (Ronaldo) Attendance: 83,782   In a few years’ time, 150,000 Spurs fans will undoubtedly all claim to have been amongst those at Wembley “the night we beat Real Madrid”! Of course, only about half that number were actually there to see it. Sadly, I wasn’t […]
