Spurs Odyssey Premier League Match Preview
· West Ham v Spurs Preview - No live TV for "Cup Final" day!

I'll be honest. Remembering that West Ham's Bobby Moore, Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters had "won the World Cup" in 1966, I did harbour the hope that Kane, Dele Alli, Trippier, Dier and Rose could do the same this year. That was not to be and we will have to endure the "We won the World Cup in 66" taunts for a while yet. Surprisingly there is no live TV coverage for West Ham's "Cup Final" game! (Kick-off 3pm tomorrow)

Whether by accident or design, it was probably quite wise for the authorities to leave West Ham's first visit to our magnificent new stadium until our penultimate home game of this season. The streets of Tottenham have been mercifully free of the more heathen elements of "The Hammers"' support since November 2016 when Harry Winks gleefully scored his first Spurs goal and Harry Kane scored two late goals (one a penalty) to give us a dramatic 3-2 win...........

10-4 ...Bill Nick's astonishing introduction

Just four days ago – on Thursday October 11 – an anniversary passed quietly that deserved to be shouted from the rooftop of the new stadium dominating the N17 skyline. It was sixty years to the day that Bill Nicholson launched his career as Tottenham’s greatest manager with an extraordinary 10-4 victory over Everton at the old (always much-loved) White Hart Lane.

As Spurs prepare to move (at last!) to their new state-of-the-art stadium there are those of us who will be clinging to magical memories of the Lane-that-was; the ground that for 118 years featured some of the finest club football ever witnessed (Here in our Spurs Odyssey home we are allowed to feast on hyperbole). While waiting for the Tottenham first-team squad to hopefully get through the international break without injury, I am taking time out to revisit what was arguably the most astonishing of all the games that graced the Lane............

It has to be said that it was a very poor Gillingham side even with Parrett, who scored for Wimbledon in last season's victory over Spurs. Spurs played so poorly that they made them look good in the first half. Once Spurs got their game going there was only going to be one winner. Portsmouth beat Crawley 1-0 to top the group with six points and Spurs go into second place on four points. Spurs now travel to Fratton park next month with a chance to get through to the knockout stage. Portsmouth will be a much tougher proposition and will likely include former Spurs youngsters Luke McGee and Anton Walkes...........

· Spurs 1 Cardiff 0 - Dier win for Spurs.
· Spurs v Cardiff Preview - Back to the bread and butter.

It wasn't a dire win for Spurs in that sense, but it was an Eric Dier goal in only the eighth minute of this game that gave us the three points, and enabled us to equal our best Premier League start after 8 games. 6 wins and 18 points keeps us in the top four and gets us closer to Manchester City and/or Liverpool who play tomorrow, but nobody should pretend we performed well today.........

· Spurs 2 Barcelona 4 - At times we were intense. Twice we were dense.
· Spurs v Barcelona Preview - We can beat the best in Spain!

Barcelona at Wembley 3rd October 2018

The club logo of Barcelona The official attendance figure said that over 82,000 were at Wembley last night, but it seemed that the world and his dog had come not just to see their beloved Spurs, but of course one of the greatest teams on the globe, with one of the World’s best players, Lionel Messi. In that sense they would not be disappointed as Messi shone, scoring twice, hitting the woodwork twice more, and generally mesmerising whichever Spurs player cared to try and stop him. There was one glorious second half moment when Harry Winks took the ball off the maestro from Argentina, and Spurs did have some second half intensity when Spurs fans sniffed a draw. However that intensity was undermined by utterly dense play at the very start and the very end of the game which gifted Barcelona the goals which ultimately clinched the game........

· Huddersfield 0 Spurs 2 - Spurs go fourth. Kane goes fifth!
· Huddersfield v Spurs Preview - Tougher for the "Terriers" this year!

The John Smith's Stadium, Huddersfield

Spurs secured a comfortable two goal win with both goals scored in the first half by Harry Kane. One was a header following a Trippier cross; the second was a well struck penalty won after Danny Rose had been fouled by substitute Hadergjonaj. Huddersfield had started well, and urged on by their noisy and exuberant supporters the bottom club gave Spurs a tough game, which I felt we managed pretty well overall. Both sides had other chances to score with Gazzaniga making a couple of saves, and having his woodwork struck. The win takes Spurs into fourth place, whilst Harry Kane’s brace makes him the clear fifth highest goalscorer in Spurs’ history, having been equal with Jermain Defoe on 143. That’s quite some feat for the 25 year old, who now has Cliff Jones’ 159 in his sights...........

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 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. 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!
