Hard Fought

Post 74 Stoke 1 Spurs 2 Spurs made it six PL wins in a row with a hard-fought victory at Stoke. It was a far from vintage display by a Spurs team that might have lost a game like this pre-Pochettino. The main talking point afterwards was whether Kane’s shoulder touched Eriksen’s free-kick for our […]

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 […]

Enough Said

Post 54 Spurs 5 Southampton 2 This was a match in which Harry Kane was the story but not the whole difference. The team stepped up alongside him and I personally made Jan Vertonghen Man of the Match. Jan’s covering performance was immense on a day when our defensive unit had some wobbles (yes, a […]

Chasing Records

Post 52 Burnley 0 Spurs 3 Spurs gained a measure of revenge for the 1-1 draw that Burnley eked out at Wembley earlier this Season (Post 28). We went up to Turf Moor on a cold night and came back with 3 points, putting Kane level with Shearer on 36 PL goals for a calendar […]
