Spurs Odyssey Premier League Match Preview
· Burnley v Spurs Preview - Harry's back, but will he play?

........This match is being played 14 months to the day when we last visited Turf Moor. We won 3-0, and Harry Kane scored his seventh hat-trick of 2017. He would score his eighth on Boxing Day, against Southampton, breaking Alan Shearer's record of 36 Premier League goals in a calendar year and becoming Europe's highest scorer of the year too, beating such players as Messi, Ronaldo, Cavani and Lewandowski!

There was great news for Spurs fans this week regarding the return of Harry Kane to full training, and his possible availability for this game..........

· Birthday Boy Jim was made for Spurs

Birthday Boy Jim was made for Spurs

The 10 day lull in Tottenham’s two-pronged title challenge, gives me the chance to send birthday greetings to the greatest of all Tottenham goal scorers, the one and only Jimmy Greaves.

Jim will be 79 on Wednesday, and I know all Spurs Odyssey disciples will join me in wishing him improved health and a better quality of life as he battles with the consequences of his paralysing stroke of nearly four years ago (May 2015).

Author David Tossell has a family-backed book coming out in April on the great man, and I hope you support it because Jim is getting a share of any profits..............

Spurs Odyssey Champions League Match Report
· Spurs 3 Borussia Dortmund 0 - Super Jan leads blitz of Germans!
· Spurs 3 Borussia Dortmund 0 - John Ellis's third-eye report
· Spurs v Borussia Dortmund Preview - Familiar and formidable opponents

Wembley Stadium - 13.02.19

The club logo of Borussia Dortmund I didn’t dare to dream of this. I had hoped for and predicted a close win for Spurs, in the knowledge that Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund would be missing their two top scorers Marco Reus and Paco Alcacer, plus perhaps one or two other key players. Nobody could have foreseen the magnificent second half blitz upon the German side by a Spurs side, itself weakened by the absence of Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Danny Rose, Ben Davies and Eric Dier. Manager Mauricio Pochettino produced a masterclass of team selection and strategy, neutralising the threat of England starlet Jadon Sancho, matching the visitors in the first half, and simply overwhelming them in the second. Spurs go to Dortmund on March 5th with one foot already in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

It was clear when the teams were announced that we would have a back three with Jan Vertonghen playing at left wing-back. I thought that Foyth’s inclusion would mean his speed being used on the left of the three to back up “Super Jan”, but Foyth was on the right with Davinson Sanchez in the middle and Toby Alderweireld on the left. Harry Winks played beside Jan, but the 31 year old Belgian spurs favourite managed Sancho very well, thank you very much, and even showed him how to effectively attack down the flank, particularly in the second half. With one marvellous assist and a superb goal, Jan was clearly our man of the match, but there were so many excellent performances here tonight...........

Spurs Odyssey Premier League Match Report
· Spurs 3 Leicester 1 - Hugo the victor!
· Spurs v Leicester Preview - The gulf in class

Every game has its moments, and in the end Spurs won this game because they grabbed their moments, but also because goalkeeper Hugo Lloris performed heroics making a penalty save from substitute Jamie Vardy, and making plenty of other less sensational saves.

Spurs had gone two up through Davinson Sanchez (his first club goal for Spurs) in the first half, and Christian Eriksen in the second. The penalty save had come when we were just one up, and Leicester did get a goal back through Vardy. The game and the three points were not secured until we entered added time and Son Heung-min raced away with the ball passed by Moussa, inside the Spurs half, with all but Jonny Evans and goalkeeper Kaspar Schmeichel barring "Sonny"'s path to goal. They did not succeed..........

· Spurs 1 Newcastle - A moment of Son shine!
· Spurs v Newcastle Preview - A cheerful Toon

Wembley 02.02.19

Spurs secured the points with another late winner, and yet again another crucial goal by Son Heung-min, who put in another sterling effort throughout the game. The win took Spurs into second place, at least until the City v Arsenal game tomorrow, and more importantly perhaps gave us a 10 point lead over Arsenal and Chelsea. (Prior to later games in this weekend's programme)

Optimists will point to the fact that we also reduced Liverpool's lead over us to 4 points until they play West Ham on Monday night. And who knows? Spurs have won a third consecutive Premier League game, and this was as hard as any of those wins against a Newcastle team in great spirits after their midweek win over Man City. Rafa Benitez set his stall out from the start of the game with a solid 5-4-1 formation, clearly aiming to secure at least a point, and hopefully grab a goal on the break..........

· Spurs' recent results in London Derby League games - Spurs Odyssey includes Watford in this list

Wembley was sparse for this game against Watford

The much maligned Fernando Llorente might be the unlikely hero for Spurs with his 87th minute winner, but another hero for Spurs was Son Heung-min, returning from his stint in the Asian Cup. Son gave an energetic and effective performance for Spurs, and put them on their way to victory with an 80th minute equaliser. Until then, as much as Spurs dominated the second half, it looked as if Watford might achieve a rare league “double” over Spurs, who were at risk of losing a third consecutive game, and a third consecutive “home” Premier League game. Only 29,164 turned up at Wembley to watch Spurs, and that included a full contingent of Watford fans. Spurs fans can’t be bothered with the trek to Wembley any more, which is a shame because we have three more “home” games to come in the next two weeks.........

Spurs Odyssey Message Board

Spurs Odyssey Message Board

Visit the Spurs Odyssey Message Board

The most epic thread on The Spurs Odyssey message board is one which started in 2010. This provides the history of our new stadium applications (including the thankfully unsuccessful bid for the Olympic Stadium) right up to the present day with images of the new stadium as it nears completion. In the early hours of Saturday 20th October, 2018, our stadium thread reached 1,000 pages! There is a genuine community feel about the board, which is moderated.

Every Spurs match is covered with excellent threads, which feature images and stats from previous games. There is so much to enjoy about the message board which also has an off-topic section where non-football matters are discussed.

There is also a great archive of filed material with links to some great Spurs history and goals.

If you would like to become even more involved, then please e-mail me (webmaster@spursodyssey.com) stating your full name, address (Town and Country will suffice!) and desired user name, and I will do the rest.

I look forward to hearing from you!
