Spurs Odyssey Match Preview
· Spurs v Brighton preview - Do not feed "The Seagulls"!

........Spurs have no new injury issues. Victor Wanyama is getting ever closer to a return, whilst Toby Alderweireld is not expected to be fit now before February. There has to be some rotation, I would have thought with a view to Saturday's game against Man City to come. Full backs Aurier and Rose are favourites to return, I suppose, and perhaps this game will provide an opportunity for Juan Foyth to make a Premier League debut. I am hoping that Spurs find some of the form they displayed against Stoke, but have settled for a 2-0 prediction. After all we do not want to feed "The Seagulls"!..........

Gray and Keys spotlight gulf between Spurs and Stoke

A strange thing happened at around half-time during Saturday’s submission of Stoke at Wembley. Tottenham had been struggling to find their form in a combative first-half. Then the call came to prayers, and that was when the massacre began.

I had better explain myself before I am taken away by the men in white coats. I was watching the match live in a sports bar in Bahrain, and at half-time there was one of the five-times-a-day call-outs by a muezzin (the caller from the minaret in the mosque) summoning Muslims to mandatory worship.

The bar virtually emptied and suddenly I was on my own in front of a huge screen cheering on Tottenham’s scintillating second-half performance. I was neither stupid nor disrespectful enough to ask my disappearing companions to say a prayer for Spurs, but it was as if a higher power had taken them over in the second session..........

· Spurs v Stoke preview - It's winter! Let's have a 4x4!

At half-time it did not look as if Spurs had any chance of getting near their three previous 4-0 wins over Mark Hughes' Stoke City. Spurs had been the dominating side, but only held a 1-0 lead courtesy of Son Heung-min's low cross/shot being inadvertently deflected into goal by Stoke skipper Ryan Shawcross. England contender Jack Butland had been the busier of the two goalkeepers, but, at best, we could hope for perhaps one more goal in the second half.

It turned into another master class and a thrashing by Spurs, who scored two goals in two minutes to put the game beyond the visitors with a goal by Son and the first of two goals by Harry Kane. Like lions, Spurs became rampant, and when they led 5-0 and Shawcross scored a consolation at the right end, the remaining Stoke fans raised a laugh with a chant of "5-0 and you f****d it up..........

Spurs failed to inflict a second defeat on the league leaders having taken a well deserved lead in the first half. Chelsea re-organised in the second and got on top with Spurs hanging on for the draw at the end. Whether they would have got that draw without the two penalties is a moot point as Chelsea had raised their game in the second half. Spurs did not react to the change quickly enough as I think Bowden should have come on earlier than he did to counter the extra man Chelsea had in midfield. The loss of Griffiths was also a blow as he was an outlet when Spurs were under pressure.

Next week Spurs will begin their FA Youth Cup campaign with the visit of Preston North End to Stevenage on the Tuesday before the Christmas break. The next league game will be on the 6th January when Leicester City visit Hotspur Way. I do not know if there will be any tournaments over that period as in previous years when they have gone to Florida and the Far East........

Spurs Odyssey Champions League Match Report
· Spurs 3 APOEL 0 - Zippy start, no bungles and even a goal for Georges!
· Spurs 3 APOEL 0 - John Ellis's "third-eye" report
· Spurs v APOEL preview - APOEL will offer some threat tonight

The club logo of APOEL The Rainbow laces campaign might have been and gone here in England, but in this dead rubber Champions’ League Group H game against the bottom-placed team in our group Spurs made a zippy start; made no major bungles, and we even saw a second half goal for Georges! (Georges-Kevin Nkoudou, of course!) Mauricio Pochettino made 8 changes to his team with Juan Foyth playing beside Davinson Sanchez in a back four. Fernando Llorente made only his fourth start for Spurs; played 90 minutes for the club for the first time, and scored his first goal in our colours. He even got the assist for Son’s goal, so had a great day, leading the line in traditional centre-forward style. Nkoudou’s goal came in a second half which looked more like a training game, and was also his first for the club in an official game............

· Spurs recent record in London Derby league matches

Whatever the rights and wrongs of the sending off of Davinson Sanchez early in the second half, referee Martin Atkinson will make many of the match headlines after a performance with which both sets of fans will find fault. Watford will claim a good penalty shout before Spurs’ equaliser, and then in added time their fans do not understand how they didn’t get a penalty for handball. But maybe that was more ball to hand. Spurs fans (this one included) were absolutely livid at the fact Mr. Atkinson was soft on Watford, who targeted Harry Kane and any attacking Spurs player relentlessly. Players who had been booked such as goalscorer Kabasele should have had a second yellow card, and one or two others were given “words” in the presence of their captain Troy Deeney. Presumably this was partly because of language difficulties. Spurs had a good penalty shout too when Harry Kane seemed to be pulled down by not one but two Watford players, but the claims of players and fans alike were to no avail...........

Spurs Odyssey Message Board

Spurs Odyssey Message Board

Visit the Spurs Odyssey Message Board

Perhaps one of the most popular threads on The Spurs Odyssey message board is one which started seven years ago 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 time with images of the actual current building and ongoing planning processes. 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!

Perhaps you are more interested in games than a message board. You might like to look at this Bingo sites comparison. The Spurs Odyssey message board will still be waiting for you!
