I have found no record of Spurs drawing four consecutive league games 1-1, so Spurs have already extended one particular record. Not long before Spurs got shot of gooner George Graham, his team played 4 consecutive 0-0 draws in January and February, 2001. if you want to re-live such moments (those of us who watched endured them!), then you could start here:- 2000-2001 season index

In September and October 1975 (under the management of another former gooner, Terry Neill), Spurs had five consecutive league draws. The run started with Leeds (away - 1-1), and continued with Arsenal (home - 0-0), Newcastle (away - 2-2), Aston Villa (away- 1-1), ending with a 2-2 at home to Man City in October. During that run, there was a 2-0 League Cup win over Crewe Alexandra.

In terms of the number of consecutive games, the current Spurs team are not draw record holders - yet.

"Jumpers for Goalposts"

This week's article by Steffan Chirazi focusses upon the big match of the week-end between Chelsea and Manchester United. Steff also has some interesting John Arne Riise content, so it is worth a look.

Here by special arrangement, is Steffan's Spurs-related content:-

MODRIC SOUNDS A WARNING SHOT

Tottenham’s signing of the Croatian midfield playmaker Luka Modric for around 15 million UKP was a resounding warning shot to the top 4 in the Premiership that Spurs under Juande Ramos are not prepared to stand still, hope they can get a decent player in the window or be gagged and bound by whatever Dimitar Berbatov does. Ramos clearly wants a full-pre-season with his chosen squad, and Modric is proof positive that what the man wants, the man gets. Further, it’s a message to Berbatov and his agent Dantchev that whilst Spurs would be delighted if he chose to stay he is not the entire football club, and the Spurs will go happily marching on if he leaves. Incidentally, (and it really IS incidental to the bigger Tottenham picture) Spurs drew 1-1 with Bolton and squandered about 100 chances, but it’s been a while since Spurs supporters could relax before a season’s end with silverware already in the cupboard, a European place guaranteed and a manager who is considered amongst the world’s elite, so we’ll excuse these frustrating weekly 1-1’s.
