Harry Kane's Injury
· Harry Kane: Striker’s injury should see Tottenham Hotspur dip into the transfer market

Harry Kane

Not only did Tottenham Hotspur lose vital ground in the title race with defeat to Manchester United on Sunday, star man Harry Kane has been ruled out until early March with an ankle injury.

The striker could barely walk off the pitch at the end of the 1-0 loss, after a coming together with Phil Jones and Victor Lindelof saw Kane come off worse.

The news will come as a huge blow to Spurs, who are still fighting on four fronts with the games coming thick and fast..........

Norman Giller's View - 14.01.19
· That's another fine mess Spurs have gotten in

That's another fine mess Spurs have gotten in

Sunday – bloody Sunday the 13th. Just what price are Spurs going to pay for yesterday’s undeserved defeat by rejuvenated Manchester United? All eyes will be on the medical bulletins coming out of Tottenham this week as injuries to Mousa Sissoko, Dele Alli and – worse of all – Harry Kane are assessed.

Spurs Odyssey guru Paul Smith and I had been discussing the merits of the recently released Stan and Ollie film before the match, and now Spurs have gotten themselves into a fine mess because their squad is just not strong enough...........

· Spurs 0 Man Utd 1 - De Gea man of the match, surely?
· Spurs v Man Utd Preview - Ole's first big test!

Wembley Stadium - 13.01.19

So, Manchester United's caretaker manager has now won his first six games in charge, going one further than the record of Sir Matt Busby, who won his first 5 league games in charge back in 1946. By beating Spurs 1-0 in front of one of the the biggest crowds seen at Wembley for a Spurs game this season, United have drawn level with Arsenal on 41 points, and sit just 6 points off a top four place. Perhaps the press will stop touting Mauricio Pochettino for the United job now.

United goalkeeper David De Gea was the BBC man of the match, and I wouldn't argue with that accolade being given to the man who stopped so many Spurs shots, particularly in the second half. He made at least 11 crucial saves, but very few of them really stretched him to the limits of his undoubted ability. Perhaps if Spurs had put the effort into the first half that they did the second, they would have reaped some reward from this game. As it is, they hold onto third place - by just one point - but a title race is perhaps a forlorn hope now, with Liverpool 9 points ahead..........

With both sides moving the ball quickly it was an entertaining match played mainly in midfield with some good approach work. Both sides had periods of dominance with the home side having most of the play overall. Spurs did not miss the loss of Eyoma and the home side did not take advantage of the extra man. Janssen looked much better than in the last game working well with Sterling. The point moved Spurs above Arsenal in the table. Spurs travel to Brighton & Hove Albion in February but before then they go to Norwich in the Premier League International Cup this Friday.............

Spurs v Chelsea - 08.01.19

Spurs have a lead, albeit one of slender proportions, to take into the second leg of this Carabao Cup semi-final, which will be played at Stamford Bridge on Thursday January 24th. They have that lead thanks to their captain on the night – ace goalscorer Harry Kane, whose cool penalty took him to 160 Spurs goals, thus going ahead of Cliff Jones, who was among the first to congratulate this modern-day goalscoring machine. Cliff also recently tweeted about the fact that he had the privilege to have played with the remaining three top scorers above Kane – Greaves, Smith and Chivers. That says so much about the quality of our sides of the 60s and 70s under legendary manager Bill Nicholson. You have to go back to those early 60s days too to find the last time Spurs beat Chelsea in three consecutive games. This tie isn’t over yet, of course.

Last night’s win also came courtesy of the much maligned VAR. After 24 minutes, Kane had run onto Toby Alderweireld’s long ball, bursting towards the Chelsea area where he was upended by goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga. An offside flag had been raised. Referee Michael Oliver indicated that VAR would consider the penalty, but of course it would also consider that offside flag. There was an on-screen message about the fact VAR was under way, but it seemed to take an age before the decision, in Spurs’ favour, was made. Up stepped Mr. Cool – Kane – to plant his penalty kick beyond Arrizabalaga’s outstretched hand in side his right post. Spurs had their lead..........

· Tranmere v Spurs FA Cup Preview - "Wirral" up for the cup!

Prenton Park

In 1953, a “reserve” Spurs side (which still included Ramsey and Nicholson in its ranks) subjected Tranmere to their record defeat 9-1 in an FA Cup Third Round tie. Last night at Prenton Park, a much changed Spurs side (which still included the likes of Dele Alli and Son Heung-min) subjected Tranmere to a record home defeat in the same tournament at the same stage. In 1953, Rovers took Spurs to a replay. Last night they held on to be only 1-0 down at half-time but then the flood gates opened and Fernando Llorente scored a second FA Cup hat-trick within a year. Last year his victims were Rochdale on a snow-swept Wembley surface. Last night his goals were scored on a fair but cold night on The Wirral.............

· Cardiff v Spurs Preview - Free entry (to Wales) for this game!

Presumably after having the proverbial kick up their backsides following what we hope was a blip against Wolves, a Spurs side with only one change (Rose for Davies) returned to form against the “Bluebirds” and had this game won within 26 minutes when they scored three goals. There was no Welsh Dragon to be seen here and Spurs reclaimed second place for a couple of days at east until Manchester city host Liverpool on Thursday night. Harry Kane opened the scoring and drew within one goal of Cliff Jones, who currently remains our fourth highest ever goal scorer. It would have been a nice touch if Kane could have drawn level with a Welsh man in Wales, but that was not to be. Harry has now scored against every one of the premier League teams he has faced, and manager Mauricio Pochettino con firmed that “One of our Own” did have his eyes on that record before the game too!..........

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!
