Spurs Odyssey Champions League Match Preview
· Barcelona v Spurs Preview - Hoping to make history!

The club logo of Barcelona We all know what is required. We need to either beat Barcelona on their home turf, or at least match Inter's result against PSV. PSV have nothing but pride to play for and Inter are at home, so I guess we need that win. The trouble is we are looking for first win in Spain, and of course a first win in the iconic Camp Nou Stadium, where Barca rarely lose. Barcelona have already secured top place in Group B, which makes it the 12th successive season they have won their Champions League group............

Balletic Dele has Spurs on their toes

Many moons ago – it was the 1960s – I hung on Alan Gilzean the sobriquet ‘Nureyev on grass.’ Now, here in the 21st Century, Dele Alli has moved me to call him ‘a footballing Barynishnikov’ because of his balletic movement and graceful gait on and off the ball.

I closely monitored his silken performance in Saturday’s late-late show at Leicester, and as well as his 67 passes I counted three nutmegs (not nutcrackers) as he pirouetted past tackles and just one attempt at a dying swan dive, something he has thankfully all but cut out of his game.........

Spurs Odyssey Premier League Match Report
· Leicester 0 Spurs 2 - Two stunning goals give Spurs another crucial win.
· Leicester v Spurs Preview - More Saturday night football!

King Power Stadium, 8th December, 2018

By the time this match was played in the new late Saturday night slot of 7.45pm, nothing other than a win would give Spurs back the third place they had gained during the week following Arsenal’s late winner against lowly Huddersfield, and Chelsea’s 2-0 win over the previously unbeaten Manchester City. The fact that we got that win thanks to two stunning goals by Son Heung-min and Dele Alli, and with neither Harry Kane or Christian Eriksen in the starting line-up says so much about Spurs’ level of achievement. We have now played 10 of our 16 Premier League games away from home and have won 8 of those games. Clearly manager Mauricio Pochettino is going all out for a historic win in Barcelona on Tuesday, having rested Kane and Eriksen. He said after the game that the Premier League had not helped Spurs by fixing this late night kick-off, but Spurs have come through with flying colours.........

· Spurs 2 Everton 2 PL2 - Spurs surrender 2 points to late goal again
· Spurs PL2 (U-23) Team Fixtures - 2018-19
· Leicester U-18s 0 Spurs U-18s 4 - Tip-top hot shot Tottenham U-18s!
· Spurs U-18 Team Fixtures - 2018-19

For the second game in a row, Spurs dropped two points conceding a late goal when in control of the game. The point does take them above West Ham but three against Everton after the result at Goodison would have been better. Spurs' next game will be at Manchester City on Saturday the 15th of December. It has been moved from Sunday which, because Spurs are playing Burnley at Wembley, I cannot now attend. It will also be played behind closed doors as City are at home to Everton across the road. That is not good timing but fixture congestion means what is usually a good game will not be seen by anyone. Spurs will take on Liverpool in January at Stevenage on the 7th after the Christmas break.........

· Spurs 3 Southampton 1 - Clinical Spurs go third!
· Spurs v Southampton Preview - Who's next? Not Mark Hughes!

Wembley - 05.12.18

On a night when Chelsea were beaten at Wolves, and Arsenal were held at Old Trafford, Spurs leapt back above both their London rivals to reclaim third place in a busy Premier League programme. Only 33,012 could be bothered to turn up at Wembley for a game where Spurs hit the woodwork early on, then dominated Southampton, who also hit the woodwork no less than three times, also causing Hugo Lloris to make some great saves once we were three up. Southampton got a late, late goal through substitute Charlie Austin, but new manager Ralph Hasenhuttl, whose appointment was confirmed during the day, watched the game and knows the task facing him, as Southampton remain in the bottom three...............

· Arsenal v Spurs Preview - It's about time!
· Spurs' recent results in London Derby League games

I'd like to say that I cautioned against the over-confidence of masses of Spurs fans going into this game, but I did not go so far as to do that. I did however predict no more than a draw, which would have been a good result for us, keeping us above the old enemy. Things did not look good when we were simply overwhelmed in the opening stages, conceding a stupid penalty (Vertonghen). They looked better when we went in 2-1 up at half-time, but then we simply folded in the second half as Arsenal came back and scored no less than three goals to take our top four place and the gloating rights until we meet again here on December 19th in the Carabao Cup. I wouldn't give us much chance in that game either..........

· Spurs v Chelsea Preview - Can Spurs match a 1967 record against Chelsea?
· Spurs' results in recent London Derby league matches.

Not only was this the first time Spurs have beaten Chelsea twice in the same calendar year since 1967; this was our second consecutive 3-1 win over a team we struggled to beat in League games at home or away for so many years. This was also the first time we have beaten them in consecutive games since a 2-0 away win in December 1986, followed by a 1-0 home win the following August. This was simply a magnificent team performance, and arguably could – even should – have been by an even wider margin, such was the ferocity of the Spurs attacks upon the Chelsea goal, particularly in the first half. In that first half we saw a great flicked header by Dele Alli, and a 25 yard shot for which Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga never even saw, let alone moved. These goals were capped by Son Heung-min’s fantastic run from the halfway line and a brilliant finish. Chelsea substitute Giroud did score what was a consolation goal five minutes from the end, and Spurs did have a few scares during the game, which were either defended well, or saved by Hugo Lloris, but this was a thoroughly deserved Tottenham win which takes them above Chelsea into third place. The win for Spurs also ended Chelsea’s 18 match unbeaten run since the start of the season..........

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!
