Spurs Odyssey Premier League Match Preview
· Southampton v Spurs preview - Is Pellegrino next for the chop?

In my preview of our home game against Southampton, I wrote about "Saints'" manager Mauricio Pellegrino that his "job must also be at risk in a season when six Premier League managers have already been sacked, and Southampton have been drawn lower down the table. They must also be dreading the January transfer window with Virgil Van Dijk still on the shopping list of certain clubs, having been unsettled in the summer and still strongly linked with Liverpool."

Well, since our Boxing Day 5-2 win, Stoke's Mark Hughes has been dismissed, Southampton have slipped down the table to 17th place and Van Dijk has indeed gone to Liverpool. The £75 million fee must be burning a hole in the club's pockets, but none of it has been spent yet. Of course, in their now precarious position Southampton will be hard-pushed to attract players of Van Dijk's quality. Pellegrino must be a prospective eighth Premier League manager to lose his job this season..........

This was a good win for Spurs who hit six goals for the first time this season. They also showed that they have tactics now for defensive playing sides. Spurs are scoring plenty of goals at the moment, with 14 in the last three league games in addition to twelve in three cup games. While keeping clean sheets in the cup games they have conceded 11 goals which cost them four points. Spurs are sending an U-17 squad to Qatar for the Alkass International Trophy before Southampton visit Hotspur Way on the 3rd February for the next League game...........

Norman Giller's View - 15.01.18
· I say...I say...I say. Harry & Son have become Batman & Robin double act

I say...I say...I say. Harry & Son have become Batman & Robin double act

Harry and Son sounds like a ‘fifties double act (“I say, I say, I say … Tottenham are on fire.” “Shall I call the fire brigade?” “No, just warm yourself on the hot Spurs.”)

I have no hesitation in saying that Kane and Son Heung-min are the most dynamic Tottenham duo since the golden days of the G-men, Jimmy Greaves and Alan Gilzean. (Real Ed comment:- If this doesn't lead to debate, I don't know what will!)

They bring the best out of each other, Son with his blistering speed of an Orient express, and Harry with a finishing instinct forged in the heavens. Individually they are both gifted players, together they have become the Batman and Robin of football.............

Spurs Odyssey Premier League Match Report
· Spurs 4 Everton 0 - The continuing story of Harry Kane!
· Spurs 4 Everton 0 - John Ellis's "Third-eye" report.
· Spurs v Everton preview - Harry Kane is not the only Spurs player chasing a scoring record!

One day Harry Kane’s story will end, but for the moment hardly a week goes by without the 24 year old (yes, still only 24) Spurs striker breaking one record or another. This week, it was two, or maybe three. Firstly, he equalled, then beat Teddy Sheringham’s Premier League goal scoring record of 97 for Spurs. Secondly, he became only the third Premier League player to score 20 or more league goals in four or more seasons. (The others were Shearer and Henry). Thirdly, he is the first Spurs player since Jimmy Greaves to score that number of goals in four consecutive seasons for Spurs. Just to repeat, Kane is still only 24, and more records will tumble as he continues his career, hopefully for several years to come yet with Tottenham.

Why, Harry wasn’t even our man of the match today! That honour fell to Son Heung-min, who achieved a record of his own today scoring in five consecutive home Premier League games to match the record of Jermain Defoe in 2004. Son scored Spurs’ first goal; laid on Harry’s first goal with a superb piece of skill before his pass, and also hit the post with another shot...........

· Spurs 3 AFC Wimbledon 0 - Kane bursts Wimbledon's bubble!
· Spurs 3 AFC Wimbledon 0 - John Ellis's "Third-eye" report.
· Spurs v AFC Wimbledon preview - Beware of minnows Spurs!

It took over an hour, but once Harry Kane pierced Wimbledon's defensive bubble, a second goal quickly followed, and it wasn't long before Spurs were cruising to a 3-0 win over the determined League One side, who should take great credit for their performance over the first hour.

Mauricio Pochettino rang the changes in the line-up and formation, with his team set up in a 4-4-2, although I made it more of a 4-2-1-3 with Sissoko in front of Wanyama and Dembele, and Lamela, Llorente and Kane forming a front three.

However, things did not go smoothly for Spurs, as they struggled once again to find ways through a 10 man defensive wall, whilst Wimbledon seemed to find more space in the Spurs half on the rare occasions they made a break. In fact Spurs goalkeeper Michel Vorm had the toughest save to make in the first half when he pushed Abdou's shot onto the bar, and then held Trotter's follow-up which was fired straight at the Spurs keeper..........

· Spurs 1 West Ham 1 - I knew the white horse was a bad omen!
· Spurs v West Ham preview - Make our Christmas complete Spurs!
· Spurs fancied to follow up against West Ham
· Spurs record in recent London Derby League matches

At the bottom of the steps outside Wembley Park tube station and as I started the march up Wembley Way, I saw a white police horse amongst the massive police presence. I said to its rider “There was no need to bring a white horse”, and I felt it was bad omen, despite the fact that West Ham actually lost that famous “White Horse” Cup Final in 1923. So it proved as West Ham not only deprived us of two points, but actually took a 70th minute lead with their first (and only) shot on target. It was a stunning goal by Obiang from at least 25 yards, but thankfully it was more than matched by Son Heung-min’s incredible strike from a longer distance six minutes from the end............

· Swansea v Spurs preview - Can Spurs beat desperate Swansea?

Those of a certain age may remember that back in the days of black and white television Christmas entertainment used to include the Blackpool Tower Circus, which always had a finale where the circus ring was filled with water. Those who approached The Liberty Stadium last night through the rivers of rain along the footpaths and roads entered with trepidation regarding the viability of seeing 90 minutes’ football. The drainage in the Swansea stadium must be good though because although conditions were difficult and windswept with driving rain falling for the first half, the ball did run fairly well, although as the game progressed more and more spray was evident, and the players were required to try and adjust their game and the strength of their passing accordingly. Hence the Blackpool Tower Circus analogy.

We did get a game , and for much of the first half, Spurs were in total control, with the game being played mostly in Swansea’s half..........

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!
