Norman Giller's View - 19.03.18
· Will Wembley make Mourinho home sick

Will Wembley make Mourinho home sick

So it’s Manchester United who will be the home side hosting Tottenham at Wembley in the FA Cup semi-final, with the Spurs players having to use the away dressing-room.

I hope the Tottenham lads don't get too confused, and we must brace ourselves for propaganda coming from Portuguese spin surgeon Jose Mourinho about Tottenham having unfair ground advantage.

Those of us of a certain age will warmly remember Tottenham’s semi-final victory over Man United in 1962, when goals from Jimmy Greaves, Cliff Jones and Terry Medwin put United to the sword on the way to retaining the Cup with a 3-1 dismantling of Burnley.

A repeat result on the weekend of April 21/22 would be very acceptable. We will be very happy to see Mourinho feeling home sick!.............

The home side were well worth their win to become the first holders of this trophy as they were too strong for Spurs who missed the league's top scorer Reo Griffiths. His stand-in Parrot took a while to get to grips with the game, getting more involved in the second half. He did have a penalty shout in the first half which was waved away by the referee.............

· Swansea 0 Spurs 3 - Eriksen eases Spurs into Semi-Finals!
· Swansea 0 Spurs 3 - John Ellis comments on the game
· Swansea v Spurs FA Cup preview - Of course we can win without Harry Kane!

Two goal Christian Eriksen, who has now scored 8 in all competitions against Swansea, led and eased Spurs into their second successive and 21st FA Cup semi-final at The Liberty Stadium, Swansea. It was a bitterly cold day, where flurries of snow had been seen on the journey down, and more promised for the return trip. A lot of the game was actually played in bright sunshine, and part from Swansea threats at the start of each half, Spurs, with playmaker Eriksen at the helm bossed this game enjoying 75% possession. Swansea were spectators for most of the game, and a lot of their fans started their exodus once Eriksen made it 3-0 in the 62nd minute...........

Kane vs Shearer: How Do They Compare Aged 24?
· Kane vs Shearer: How Do They Compare Aged 24?

Alan Shearer is widely regarded as one of the greatest English strikers the game has seen.

In a remarkable career, he scored 379 goals in all competitions domestically and 30 for his country. He’s the top goal scorer in Premier League history and has broken numerous records.

But, there’s now another English striker who’s in pole position to dethrone Shearer as the best of all-time and his name is Harry Kane........

Spurs Odyssey Premier League Match report
· Bournemouth 1 Spurs 4 - Nice one Sonny! Nice one Son!
· Bournemouth v Spurs preview - Quick recovery required

It was the first rendition I can recall of “Nice one Sonny! Nice one Son! Nice one Sonny! Let’s have another one!” Indeed Son Heung-min obliged after the song was aired after his first goal with a second and Spurs’ third in the 87th minute to secure the win, and to enable Spurs to climb above Liverpool to third place, maintaining that five point lead over Chelsea. The headlines following this game are about Harry Kane’s enforced first half departure after he twisted his ankle in collision with Bournemouth goalkeeper when “scoring” an offside goal. We have to wait and see what the exact injury is to Harry and the implications for club and country, but he did walk off, and I think he might be back after the International break.

The fact is that Spurs adjusted well after Kane’s departure with Lamela and not Llorente replacing him, and Spurs matching Bournemouth’s attacking formation with Lamela, Son and Dele up front and Son leading the line. Son’s goals were his sixth and seventh in the last four games; his eleventh and twelfth in the Premier League and his seventeenth and eighteenth for the club this season............

· Spurs v Juventus preview - We're all licking our lips with anticipation!

Juventus at Wembley

The club logo of Juventus It had all been going so well. Son had given Spurs a deserved first half lead with a goal that had been somewhat fortuitous in its execution, and as a team Spurs were seemingly in control as they held their lead and just about edged possession. Then, in the space of 169 seconds of clinical finishing, Juventus had dashed our hopes and dreams with goals by Mauricio Pochettino’s compatriots Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala. I had bumped into another legendary Argentinean before the game – the one and only Ossie Ardiles. I was convinced that had been a “sign”, and I suppose it was, but not the sort of sign I had hoped for..............

· Spurs v Huddersfield preview - Wagner has given his team new hope

Spurs’ South Korean striker/wing-man Son Heung-min is right back on song and in good scoring form with his second brace in two games, giving him 10 Premier League goals and his fourteenth and fifteenth club goals for the season. Son was grateful to excellent passes by Dele Alli and Harry Kane for his goals, and could have added to his tally (as could his colleagues), but Son, and his team are ready for Juventus in the Champions League on Wednesday night. Spurs dominated possession and the game followed a pattern of Huddersfield seeking to defend their goal and preserve a point, whilst Spurs at times played delightful probing football, and at others reverted to their patient recycling and build-up routine. David Wagner’s Yorkshire side had to come out after going a goal down and did have one or two dangerous moments, chiefly through substitute Tom Ince’s breakaway run and shot, but Spurs were able to play within themselves and preserve their fitness and attacking intentions for Wednesday night. Anything the “Terriers” got from this game would have been a bonus and they have key games coming up from which they will be hoping to gain points.............

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!
