Spurs Development & Academy Reports, 2018-19
· Spurs 1 West Ham 3 (PL2) - Spurs beaten by Silva streak
· Spurs U-18s 6 Brighton U-18s 4 - Spurs come back twice from two goals down
· Spurs U-18 Team Fixtures - 2018-19
· Spurs PL2 (U-23) Team Fixtures - 2018-19

This was your typical game of two halves as Spurs were on top in the first and West Ham in the second. Spurs paid the penalty for not adding to the only goal they scored. The "Hammers"' defence had to take some credit for that especially Pask who made a number of interceptions of the final ball. Silva's first goal was lucky as he was probably in an offside position when the ball hit him, but poor defending accounted for the other two. Spurs must pick themselves up for the trip to Anfield on Friday. Liverpool drew 0-0 at Brighton in their first league game last week. Last season Spurs lost 4-2 at Anfield becoming the first team to score against the Reds who had made an unbeaten start to the season........

Can anybody topple SOQL King David?

One of the most significant seasons in Tottenham’s 136-year history is up and running with a satisfactory three points from the opening match at Newcastle … but much more important (I am sort of joking) is that the Spurs Odyssey Quiz League kicks off today!

This is the fifth year of the League and I wonder if Quiz King David Guthrie can complete a hat-trick of victories. That’s him above collecting his 2017-18 framed certificate from me – I am the skinny, good-looking one on the right...........

Spurs Odyssey Premier League Match Report
· Newcastle 1 Spurs 2 - World Cup stars seal a win for Spurs
· Newcastle v Spurs Preview - Unhappiness in both camps

St James Park, Newcastle

Spurs repeated an away win on the first game of the season at Newcastle, which they did last year, but with a different scoreline (2-0 last year). Mauricio Pochettino started with a stronger team than some expected with no less than 5 World Cup semi-finalists, two of whom scored the goals for the away side in an eventful opening quarter of the game.

Jan Vertonghen’s opener needed goal-line technology to be confirmed, but that was quickly signalled by referee Martin Atkinson, who also went to Russia, but on a bicycle for charity and not to referee or officiate. Dele Alli’s clinching header was similar to the World Cup goal he had scored against Sweden.

Between those goals Newcastle’s Joselu had quickly equalised Vertonghen’s opener, and the home side later gave Hugo Lloris plenty to worry about with Diame and substitute Rondon hitting the woodwork, and Spurs having to defend one or two other situations quite desperately..........

Quite why this last pre-season friendly was arranged in the first place I do not know. My recollection is that the match was arranged after the squad (such as it was) had reported for pre-season training. Perhaps when the club agreed to the game they thought most of our World Cup stars would be back, and they did not anticipate no less than 9 absentees due to their involvement in the semi-finals week.

Add to that the absence of Carter-Vickers, Eriksen, Lamela and Sissoko, all of whom had played some part in the International Champions Cup plus the injured Wanyama and rehabilitating Harry Winks and you had a squad for this game that was more than decimated.............

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!
