Spurs Odyssey Reviews the Premier League Season
for 2016-2017 - Matchday 12

Unbeaten runs compared

Have look at the image below. In fact, don't just look at it, click on it and you will see a larger, more legible copy. The image provides the full details (courtesy of Paul Yarden's excellent FootballFacts web site) of our current unbeaten run and that achieved by the magnificent Double side of 1960-61.

Spurs Unbeaten runs 1960-2016

As you can see, our current team has a lot to do yet to emulate that 16 match run, and to be correct, the Double side won their last two games of 1959-60, so it is an 18-match record. Chelsea on Saturday are our first and biggest obstacle. I have also mentioned before that Harry Redknapp's Spurs team of 2011-12 had a better points tally than has Pochettino's team, and that fact stands after 12 games (28 to 24). Harry's team won their 13th match, so Spurs will need to break another record and win at Stamford Bridge for the first time in a generation to even keep up with that 2011 standard.

Incidentally, Bill Nicholson's side did not have our longest unbeaten run in League matches. That record belongs to Arthur Rowe's 1949-50 side which went 22 games without defeat between 31st August and 14th January 1950. Unsurprisingly, promotion beckoned, and we all know what happened the following year!

AVB's Spurs also had a 12 match unbeaten run (in Premier League matches) between December 2012 and March 2013.

After Saturday's heroics in the dying minutes of the game, some fans were seeking comparision with our 4-3 "Stalteri" win at Upton Park in March 2007. I insist that win gave us a better feeling, partly because we thought we had relegated the "Hammers". A quick look at the report though will tell you that the referee for that game was none other than Mike Dean!

Harry Winks pipped Harry Kane for your man of the match vote. For Harry Winks this was a dream day, making his first Premier League start, as well as scoring his first senior goal for the club he also happens to support avidly! No wonder he ran to the bench and specifically his manager to celebrate. Harry's emotion was there for all to see in his post-match interview, and apparently he waited an hour after the game outside Mauricio Pochettino's office to say a big "Thank You"! Well, God Bless you Harry, and here's to a long and successful Spurs career!
