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 […]

Son et Lumiere

Post 64 Spurs 2 Newport County 0 A ‘Son et Lumiere’ show is a form of nighttime entertainment that is usually presented in an outdoor venue of historic significance.

Take a bow, my Son

Post 49 Spurs 5 Stoke City 1 (Shawcross OG, Son, Kane 2, Eriksen) Son Heung-min signed for Spurs 2 ½ years ago.

Hoodoo? We do (words)

Post 38 Spurs 4 Liverpool 1 (Kane 2, Son, Dele), (Salah) Hoodoo? Spurs did for Liverpool yesterday with a comprehensive win despite only having 36% possession. Liverpool are meant to be Spurs’ bogey team. Wembley is meant to be a hoodoo ground for us. Both narratives were chewed and spat out by our players and […]
