This had been an evenly fought game with neither side getting on top and a draw was the most likely outcome. The assistant, who had been giving most 50:50 decisions to the visitors, gave them one that provided the breakthrough. Ceballos playing his first game would be my choice for man of the match with all the players doing well. The win moves United to the top of the table while Spurs drop to eighth. Spurs' next game is away to Norwich at Carrow Road on the 14th October. This game will be shown live on Sky and I would encourage you to watch as they play some good football.

Norman Giller's Weekly - 29.09.14
A huge result for all of us!

Norman Giller writes for Spurs Odyssey "It’s incredible what a draw at the Emirates can do. This morning I feel as spring-heeled as if I lifted the Ryder Cup, enjoyed a stag-night drink with George Clooney, and defected to UKip. If we’d picked up all three points I think I’d be purring down the phone to Her Majesty and having a drink with Mrs Clooney.

Seriously, that was a huge result for Mauricio and the boys; for ALL of us.

A defeat could have led to rumblings of civil war, but now we can all pull together and concentrate hard on trying to grab at least fourth place in the Premier League."...........

Norman also announces this week's lucky prize winner and a new teaser, with a self-penned book on offer. See full details here

I get lots of positive feedback on the message board and via social media every week, so rest assured that Norman's articles are always worth a read!

Arsenal v Spurs match report - 27.09.14
Arsenal 1 Spurs 1 - Point taken
Spurs' record in recent London Derby matches

In a game where many Spurs fans were feeling pessimistic to say the very least, Mauricio Pochettino's team showed sufficient grit, determination, and defensive expertise to take a deserved point away from The Emirates Stadium. In doing so, they scored their first goal against Arsenal in four games, and their first point here in four years.

Nacer Chadli scored the Spurs goal, to enhance his position as our top scorer so far this season, with four Premier League goals, following good work by Christian Eriksen and Erik Lamela. Arsenal dominated possession, with wave upon wave of confident attacks upon the Spurs goal, which was well defended on the whole, with particularly good performances by Younes Kaboul, and Hugo Lloris in the Spurs goal. I thought that Danny Rose had a good game too, mostly against Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The Arsenal crowd of course wanted blood, and although a mighty roar went up when Oxlade-Chamberlain did score in front of goal, after an involuntary touch by Welbeck, and a deflection or two, by and large they were subdued, as were their team.

Latest Spurs Statistics

Spurs v Nottingham Forest match report - 24.09.14
Spurs 3 Nottingham Forest 1 - Mason sparks victory!

Just when it began to look as if Spurs would succumb to lesser opposition for the second time in 4 days, on came 23 year old Ryan Mason, and Harry Kane to spark a rally by Spurs in which they not only equalised, but ultimately scored three goals to make the scoreline convincing in the end. If only it had been that easy!

Ryan Mason was probably unknown to most of the Spurs crowd. He has come up through the academy, and first appeared as a 17 year old in a European away game at N.E.C in The Netherlands in November, 2008. Ryan has made rare appearances at senior level in the club's colours since then, and has had successful spells on loan at clubs such as Yeovil, and Swindon.

This year, Mason has clearly caught the eye of Mauricio Pochettino, who has named him in our 25 man Premier League squad. Well, Ryan certainly caught the eye of the crowd, and Sky TV viewers with a superb equaliser, scored from at least 25 yards, beating Forest goalkeeper Dorus De Vries inside his right post...........

Spurs v West Brom match report - 21.09.14
Spurs 0 West Brom 1 - Baggies end 30 years of hurt

With a result that surprised all pundits, and made all bookies happy, West Brom achieved their first win at White Hart Lane for 30 years. The win was deserved too. It was a momentous day for West Brom fans and connections, so happy to see their team off the bottom of the table, where they had started the day. The hurt for Spurs fans goes on, and on. We’ve missed out on an opportunity to go third, but fallen to ninth. We are still above Liverpool and Manchester United (who lost 5-3 at Leicester), but Leicester and West Ham are above us. Of course, that is not where we want to be.

After the game, I visited “The Beehive” pub in Bruce Grove, outside which a banner has a picture of Daniel Levy, and a spoof quote of “More ales than I’ve had managers”. Well, I wonder how long this one will last. It wasn’t AVB on speed today, but AVB in slow motion.

FK Partizan v Spurs Match report - 18.09.14
FK Partizan 0 Spurs 0 - Spurs survive difficult pitch and atmosphere

The club logo of FK Partizan Spurs survived a difficult night in Belgrade on what was described as a bobbly and uneven pitch, some of which had only very recently been re-laid. The turf could be kicked up with ease, and in no way matched the lush green pastures Spurs are used to both at White Hart Lane and Hotspur Way. As usual, in a fixture in Eastern Europe (not the farthest East we have to travel in this phase), the home atmosphere was incredibly loud for most of the time, although as far as I am aware, no specific hostility was offered to our players. Remember that Danny Rose had suffered racist abuse here in Serbia, when playing for England’s under-21s a couple of years ago. One of Partizan’s unused substitutes – Ninkovic – was involved in that incident, and had to serve a one year ban given by the Serbian FA as a result.

As mentioned in my preview, Danny Rose was amongst those Spurs players left at home, all of whom will probably start Sunday’s game against West Brom. Hugo Lloris was captain for the night, whilst Mauricio Pochettino had the luxury of making 10 outfield changes from the team which drew at Sunderland last Saturday......
