Spurs Development & Academy Reports, 2017-18
· Chelsea U-18s 0 Spurs U-18s 3 - Spurs complete a remarkable April clean sweep over Chelsea
· Spurs U-18s fixtures and reports - 2017-18
· Chelsea 1 Spurs 2 (PL2) - Another Spurs team won at Chelsea on Friday night!
· Spurs' PL2 (& Checkatrade) fixtures and reports - 2017-18

Spurs went at Chelsea from the start and did not let them settle. Once they got their passing game going it looked like they would win. Chelsea tried to get stuck in and the referee allowed some tough challenges but they could not stop the midfield. Markanday was almost unstoppable and ran the show. Shashoua was hard to knock off the ball and Patterson saw off Clark. Skipp was making runs from deep and Eyoma and Dinzeyi dominated Taylor-Crossdale better than the way Chelsea marked Griffiths. It was a good team performance and I hope it carries forward to the last game next week when the visitors to Hotspur Way are Arsenal. They inflicted a 6-0 defeat on Spurs at their home ground but with the final of the FA Youth Cup with Chelsea to play their minds may be elsewhere.

Following the Premier League away win on April 1st and the PL2 away win on 13th April, this under 18 side completed a remarkable clean sweep of three away wins against Chelsea! With this win Spurs also climbed to fourth in the table, although both Swansea and Leicesteer are on their tail.............

· Brighton 1 Spurs 1 - Brighton gain precious point against under par Spurs side.
· Brighton v Spurs preview - Both teams seeking a bounce-back win

Chris Hughton's Brighton side won a precious point with a penalty scored within two minutes of Harry Kane's 26th Premier League goal of the season. With their run-in it may be the last point Brighton get this season, but as they are now 8 points ahead of the bottom three, that could well be enough.

The point should be enough to ensure Brighton have another season of Premier League football, and that would be a terrific achievement for them. However, I will have to think very, very carefully before committing myself to another visit to what is a superb stadium (with nice soft cushioned seats if only Spurs fans would use them) due to the horrendous queues and journeys to and from the stadium which is situated out of town. Despite the attempts to facilitate fans' travel, it is not an ordeal I would happily contemplate again.........

Norman Giller's View - 16.04.18
· Tottenham need to see much more of Moura

Tottenham need to see much more of Moura

Spurs took a painful fall on Grand National Day, but must now quickly pick themselves up and ride flat out to the finish line. They need to show Manchester City-style resolve and battling qualities if their so-far excellent season is not to be wrecked in – to continue the racing analogy – the final furlong.

I admired the character Manchester City revealed in their deserved victory, pulling themselves out of their mini-slump and then being handed the title when neighbours Man United went down to a Sunday punch delivered by rock-bottom West Brom. I rate City the finest champions in Premier League history, despite a few recent hiccups.

What a game it would have been against my favourite of all teams, the Tottenham Double side (with Greavsie added)!

But back to Tottenham’s crucial week. Tomorrow’s match at Brighton is every bit as important as the FA Cup semi-final showdown with Manchester United on Saturday. I am sure Mauricio Pochettino will forget about rotation and pick his strongest possible side for both games here at the business end of the season............

Spurs Odyssey Premier League match preview
· Spurs 1 Man City 3 - City nearly over the Title line. Spurs well beaten.
· Spurs v Man City preview - Let's celebrate "St. Hotspur Day" in style!

The masses (over 80,000 of them) flocked to Wembley, even for a 7.45pm Saturday night kick-off, hoping to see Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side vanquished for fourth consecutive time. That was not to be as City were allowed by most of the Spurs team to dominate proceedings, ending Spurs’ 14 match unbeaten Premier League run (it had started after the away defeat to City in December) with a two goal win – or should that be by two lengths in Grand National terms. City have been winning the title by a distance for much of the season, but faltered last week at home to Manchester United in between being knocked out of the Champions League by Liverpool........

· Stoke City 1 Spurs 2 - Another run ends, but Spurs consolidate their position with a win.
· Stoke City v Spurs preview - Spurs' quest to extend a record
· Tottenham set to heap more misery on sorry Stoke

I wouldn't exactly call it "winning ugly", but thanks to Stoke being allowed to persistently foul, often without punishment, and certainly without the right number of cards, Spurs were somewhat unsettled at times, to say the least.

For the second week running, we ended a run. Last week it was the Chelsea hoodoo which came to an end. This week we failed to beat Stoke by four clear goals after four successive wins by that margin. This was though our fifth consecutive win against Stoke, who remain in the bottom three, very much at risk of relegation

Still, however niggly, or tricky, a win is a win, and we are level on points with Liverpool. This was in fact our sixth consecutive league win, and our 14th Premier League game without defeat...........

· Spurs' record in recent London Derby matches

Here's a confession. Until today, I personally had never seen Spurs win at Stamford Bridge. Of course, a whole generation of Spurs fans had to say that as it is a full 28 years ago since David Howells and Gary Lineker scored the goals that gave us a 2-1 away win in February 1990. That was a historic day too, as it was the same day that Nelson Mandela was released from his lengthy incarceration in South Africa.

There had been other occasions when Spurs won at The Bridge in the 80s, not least in an FA Cup quarter-final in 1982, but I had been an absentee from Stanford Bridge between the 60s and the late 90s, perhaps even the early part of this century. Year after year, we have put ourselves through the pain of visiting Stanford Bridge, suffering the vitriol of the home fans, some dodgy refereeing decisions, not least by today's referee Andre Marriner. In absolute deference and fairness, I should day that I thought Mr. Marriner handled today's game well, and was not overly influenced by the pressures exerted by home players and fans.

Today, all that pain of the last 28 years was cast away, as a mighty Spurs side smote their keen rivals not even by one goal, but two. Dele Alli scored two second half goals to secure the game, but a simply stupendous goal in first half added time by Christian Eriksen levelled Alvaro Morato's 30th minute goal to give us one of the best psychological boosts you could wish for..........

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 and a half 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 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!

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!
