Spurs Development & Academy Reports, 2018-19
· Portsmouth 3 Spurs U-21s 2 - Spurs U-21s progress in Checkatrade Trophy despite defeat
· Spurs PL2 (U-23) Team Fixtures - 2018-19
· Spurs U-18s 2 Swansea U-18s 1 - Spurs well placed in Youth League Cup
· Spurs U-18 Team Fixtures - 2018-19

The young Spurs side were a match for the Portsmouth side which was a mix of first team and squad players and Spurs were only outclassed when "Pompey" brought on more heavyweights. In the other group match Gillingham continued their winning form by beating Crawley Town 2-1. This meant that Spurs finished second and join six other U-21 teams in the knockout rounds...........

Norman Giller's View - 12.11.18
· "Juan of our own" Foyth does it the Pochettino way

Juan of our own Foyth does it the Pochettino way

Anybody who saw Mauricio Pochettino in his playing days with Argentina, Espanyol and Paris Saint-Germain will confirm that in countryman Juan Foyth he is moulding a clone of himself.

The Poch was a tough-tackling, thoughtful central defender, who put the team requirements first at all times. He did not believe in taking prisoners and kept a procession of top strikers under lock and key. He was hard but honest, and still grumbles over a penalty awarded against him for a tackle on Michael Owen in the 2002 World Cup finals. Mauricio insists to this day that he did not touch the England goal poacher and claims it was a high-tariff dive that led to David Beckham scoring the only goal of the match from the penalty spot...........

Spurs Odyssey Premier League Match Report
· Crystal Palace 0 Spurs 1 - Hard fought win and a first goal for Foyth!
· Crystal Palace v Spurs Preview - Mauricio hints at rotation for Selhurst Park
· Spurs' results in recent London Derby league matches.

As I walked through the torrents of rain and the paths that were literally rivers of water towards Selhurst Park, I wondered if we were going to see a game of football. Premier League grounds (even that of Crystal Palace where the ancient Arthur Wait offers poor comfort, facilities and view of the game) are very resilient to such weather these days, so we did get a game, although it was one which lacked quality. I suppose that is not surprising bearing in mind the match was played in persistent and heavy rain throughout. It was certainly hard-fought, and Spurs were deserved winners with Juan Foyth celebrating his second Premier League start with a first career goal.............

Wembley v PSV

The club logo of PSV Eindhoven ........Spurs fans crave Champions League football, but so many of them obviously chose not to bother attending last night. Numerous “spare” tickets were on offer on social media leading up to this game. PSV fans numbered nearly 5,000, so two thirds of the number of Spurs fans who will be required to fill the new stadium were in attendance. On the day the golden cockerel was raised to stand proudly above the new South stand at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, it was skipper Harry Kane who scored the two late goals which gave Spurs the result they required. With Inter getting a draw at home to Barcelona, Spurs must win their game against the Italians at Wembley on 28th November, and will need to at least match Inter’s result on Matchday 6 when we travel to Barcelona, whilst Inter will host PSV, who by then are likely to have nothing to play for. At least we have hope going into Matchday Five when our win over Inter needs to be either 1-0 or by a goal difference of two to go ahead of them on the head to head calculations...........

Wolves - 03.11.18

This was a game which non-partisan late Saturday night TV viewers will have found enthralling; Wolves fans found thrilling at the prospect of a fantastic come-back, but which Spurs fans might have had few fingernails left. Such was the tension for away fans, despite holding a three goal lead after 61 minutes. Wolves had already been giving Spurs a hard time though from the start of the second half when Hugo Lloris had to make three good saves in as many minutes. We needed that third goal, and might have needed a fourth had an apparently legal Wolves goal not been disallowed for offside before the break. Wolves’ exciting come-back was cemented by not one but two penalties, both conceded by Juan Foyth. Foyth deserves sympathy though, despite his naivety having on both occasions been put in trouble by errors by firstly Trippier, then Trippier and Winks combined. It was a great game, and a great result for Spurs who climbed back into the top four above Arsenal as a result. That was very satisfying!.........

West Ham - Carabao Cup

Son Heung-min captured the headlines at The London Stadium last night with his first Spurs goals since March, but there was another captivating performance by a member of the Spurs team which merits highlighting. That was 20 year old Juan Foyth, recently selected for the Argentine national squad, but not seen on the field for Spurs since February’s 6-1 Cup win over Rochdale. Foyth was immaculate at the back. His marking was tight. His tackling was sharp and impactive. His ability to run with the ball under close control out of defence was a joy to see. The only disappointment is to wonder when we will see Juan play again. Perhaps it will be in the EFL Cup quarter-final at The Emirates as we were drawn away to the old enemy after last night’s superb win.

It was a joy to see our second win at The London stadium in just 11 days. Of course we haven’t visited this venue in games so close before, and in fact we have never played two away games against West Ham so close together. This now our third consecutive win at this venue, which is more than “The Hammers” have managed so far this 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!
