A rose in the sun

Post 36 I love the photo of Lloris hugging Rose. In fact the whole photo … of Kane acknowledging our fans, Jan and Winksy arms around each other, Hugo giving Danny a french kiss. The whole image speaks of togetherness and it set me thinking. A long time ago (1980s) I used to travel to […]

Reasons to be Cheerful #1

Post 14 2nd June 2017 This is the first in a series of what I’ll call ‘Summer Reflections’. Spurs scored 117 goals last season; 86 in the PL, 17 in the FA Cup, 6 in the LC and 8 in Europe. Three players scored over two thirds of our goals. But we scored so many […]
