Spurs Odyssey Match Reports 1997-98 season

Listed below is an index to Spurs Odyssey exclusive match reports for the 1997-1998 season. This archive is being re-written and presented during the course of the 2017-18 season, and links to match reports will appear on or after the 20th anniversary of the game being played. Many of these reports and previews were written by Brian Judson, who sadly passed away in 2017 after a long battle with too many ailments. The 1997-98 season was the last when Brian was able to attend games. Whilst this was not a memorable season (to say the least), the archive does offer more insight into the skills and memories of a great Spurs fan and writer.
