Last Season's Figures
Last Month's Figures - May 2004
(You can track back the whole season by starting at May 2004)

It might seem amazing, but the "Spursometer" exclusive form readings for the last season were marginally better than Glenn Hoddle's last full season. The fact that the figures were close only serve to confirm that Spurs fans have now had to endure two appalling seasons. After all, an overall mark of around 5.5 out of 10 would not get much credit from readers of the Sunday Paper assessments on their team, as you would almost expect to be on the losing side every week.

Of course, that is exactly what we had to endure for most of the season, as Spurs lost away game after away game, and at the end of the day only came up with decent football in three or four months of the ten-month season. October and January were the highlights for many people, but Spurs did manage to finish with a bit of promise.

Most surprisingly, bearing in mind the strikers we have in the camp, the score ratio for the season was very poor, not helped by the run we had in March and April of scoring only 3 goals in 8 games. (One of these was scored by an opponent)

Separate articles can be read regarding the "Good, The Bad, and The Ugly" of Spurs' season 2003-4, but many readers did comment about the lack of team spirit evident, which is supported by an overall score of only 62.66% for effort, which should be no less than 70% for a season.

Many people have commented about the great signing of Jermain Defoe, and Robbie Keane (top goalscorer again) also deserves meritorious mention, but if I had to pick one game where I felt really happy with my Spurs, then I would have to go for the away win at Charlton, so I've chosen a joyous picture from that game to remind me of my highlight in another terrible year for Spurs fans.

As I write, we have a new Sporting Director but no team coach. We have strengthened the goal-keeping department with the signings of Paul Robinson and Marton Fulop, but we need that midfield dynamo. It will take more than the rumoured signing of Edgar Davids to speed up the season ticket renewals, and everyone connected with Spurs knows that another year of mediocrity will not be tolerated by what could become a dwindling support.
