The Under-50s were out in force yesterday, hailing hat-trick hero Harry Kane as Tottenham’s greatest ever striker. Many were claiming he was even better than Jimmy Greaves, the most prolific British marksman of my (long) life time.
I don’t want to take anything away from Our Harry because I love him like a surrogate son, but I have a duty to stand up for my generation in general and Greavsie in particular.
You can read our website master Paul Smith's description here of Kane’s 100th, 101st and 102nd goals, but please allow me to put things in perspective with a few startling stats......

Premier League Match report - Spurs v Stoke, 26.02.17
Spurs, led by hat-trick hero Harry Kane, took visiting Stoke City by storm today, and it was all done in the first half. For the third consecutive meeting of these two teams, Spurs have won 4-0. Never mind “Delilah”! Stoke have become our “Aunt Sallies”! We went through a spell before Aston Villa were relegated of beating them by big margins regularly. Stoke are not threatened by relegation, but their trip to Dubai for some warm weather training during their two-week break did them no good at all here. Spurs, on the other hand have played 4 games while Stoke were resting, but they looked sharper than ever.
Harry Kane has scored his second hat-trick in a week, after one at Fulham last Sunday, and his third already this year! These three goals also put him on 66 Premier League goals already, only 34 behind Peter Crouch who was up front for Stoke today. Harry has drawn level top scorer with Lukaku and Sanchez. His is an incredible record.........

Europa League Match report - Spurs v K.A.A.Gent, 23.02.17
In my eagerness to publish the post-match survey at the start of my journey home from Wembley last night, I mistakenly included two Diers in the team. (This error was quickly rectified and you can vote here whilst the survey remains live - http://survey.constantcontact.com/survey/a07edv3h0inizi2aklv/start) Spurs didn’t need two Eric Diers in the team, but they could have done with two Vertonghens, Walkers, or Wanyamas, but especially a striker who could put the ball in the net. Spurs were a little like me last night; eager to please, but not successful enough in their application. After Dele Alli recklessly got himself sent off after 39 minutes for a high tackle, the remaining 10 men (plus substitutes Son and Winks) tried valiantly, but ultimately failed to succeed. The Wembley hoodoo continues, as we have managed to win only one of our four games here this season. Success against Millwall in the FA Cup quarter-final will bring us back soon , and of course, the National Football stadium will be our temporary home next season. We had better learn to win here fast!........
It was a great day for Spurs and Harry Kane at Craven Cottage, as the team scored their first goals in open play since the win over Wycombe in the last round of the FA Cup on January 28th which was five games ago. Harry Kane scored a hat-trick to put paid to any prospect of Championship side Fulham knocking out Spurs, and to cap it all we have drawn League One Millwall at home in the quarter-finals. I call that a result!........
Spurs had travelled to Anfield surely in a confident mood after a run of 11 games unbeaten in all competitions, whilst Liverpool had yet to win a Premier League game so far this calendar year in five attempts. They had however held title favourites (even more so after today) Chelsea to a draw, and perhaps therein lay a warning for Spurs of the real threat they faced. The fact is that this was a must win game for Jurgen Klopp’s team, and they played with every ounce of determination, desire, energy and not a little skill which made them conquerors of Spurs before even 20 minutes had passed, thanks to Sadio Mane’s two goals in two minutes. Spurs had surely left any vestige of confidence behind in the dressing room. Without doubt, this was the worst Spurs performance I have seen this season, and there is hardly a good word to be said about any player..........
Perhaps one of the most popular threads on The Spurs Odyssey message board is one which started six 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 (email@example.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!
