Oh what a night.

Tottenham Hotspur have done the unthinkable – shattering European expectation to reach the biggest club football occasion on the planet, the Champions League final.

This is a team ravaged by injuries to key personnel; the ‘Harry Kane team’ without Harry Kane; a squad that has had no investment in two consecutive windows and is low on confidence from recent domestic results.

We just d...

A Spurs legend has hit our shores.

With 866 Spurs appearances to his name, former Tottenham captain Steve Perryman is our cherished club’s longest serving player.

A career that started in North London in July 1967, Perryman broke in to Tottenham’s first team at the remarkable age of 17. It wasn’t long until the accolades followed, when Spurs lifted the League Cup in 1971, followed by the UEFA Cup in...

Supporting our wonderful club from North London, albeit nearly 12,000 miles away is no mean feat. 

Amidst a wealth of half-hearted Football fans in the country who jump on the latest trending team, and the flurry of your usual United, Chelsea, Arsenal, City fans who are chasing glory, there is something quite unique about being a Spurs fan, and meeting voracious fans all around the country that are...

What A Miserable Saturday, bemoaned the Tottenham faithful after last weekend’s performance against Liverpool. Furthermore, the Knees Up we were hoping for in Milan was spoilt by the concession of two late goals against Inter, and while it wasn’t quite Margate, the travelling Spurs contingent were hoping for a better result on the south coast yesterday. So often, there just Ain’t No Pleasing some...

The one good thing about the international break is that it provides me with an opportunity to put pen to paper, while the national team play fixtures I have little or no interest in. After all, does anyone really understand what the purpose of the Nations League really is?

Onward, we have more important matters to discuss. Last week was arguably one of the most bizarre weeks Tottenham have endured...

After seven years of bleary-eyed starts to my Monday mornings and countless 3am kick-offs following Spurs from the Antipodes, the 2018/19 season began less than a fortnight ago – and I am finally able to not only watch my beloved club at a sociable hour, but take my very own seat at White Hart… er.. Wembley.

Admittedly, I feel somewhat guilty having told close friends that the main motivating facto...

Today I read quite an amusing article largely focused around the man who is set to lead his national team out on the field at Wembley tomorrow morning (NZT for those in the motherland who may be reading). That article bemoaned the success of two largely average players, as opposing fans would have us believe – one a tap-in merchant and the other a temperamental little boy – who have somehow conned...

So we’re finally up and running. After an indifferent pre-season, countless speculation regarding the possible departures of key players and what appears to be a media witch-hunt, intent on destabilising the squad (helped by the naivety/stupidity of Danny Rose), Spurs have opened their account with a comfortable 2-0 win at St James’ Park.

I knew, as I trundled off to bed, that the demons of my last...

“Pochettino’s teams cant keep pace for the full season.” “Tottenham have bottled it… again!” “The biggest challenge for Spurs, is that they’re a selling club - how can they keep hold of their players, and what big names wants to play there?”

Any Spurs fan that has taken an occasional, often guilt-edged glimpse at the twitter accounts of the so-called experts will be accustomed to comments like thes...

Spurs fan since the early-eighties, Mel Gomes, who wrote the e-book ‘Glory Nights: From Wankdorf to Wembley’, documenting Tottenham Hotspur’s return to the Champions League in 2010-11, interviewed Graham Roberts in 2003 for his website at the time, Melstars.

At the time Roberts was manager of south London side Carshalton Athletic, while Spurs were being led by his former team-mate Glenn Hoddle, who...
