This was not a great performance from Spurs as they never got their passing game going, with many mis-placed balls. The home side seized their opportunities to counter-attack at pace. Everton, as expected, were strong at the back and quick to get players back in support. They have pace which was used to great effect to get players up field and cause the Spurs defence problems. They did not allow Spurs space in midfield to set up attacks which with poor passing restricted the visitors' chances.

The second game in the group will be against FC Schalke in November at Stevenage when Spurs will need to get a win to give them a chance to proceed to the next stage. Everton have the best chance as all three of their games are at Goodison......

Norman Giller's Weekly - 31.08.15
Popping my positivity pills!

Norman Giller writes for Spurs Odyssey I am still popping my positivity pills as Tottenham totter into the international break week with just three points from a possible 12. Let’s hold hands here at Spurs Odyssey and look on the bright side of the goalless draw with Everton:

A CLEAN SHEET, with Lloris again looking what he is: one of the finest goalkeepers in Europe.

MORE PROMISE of a long-lasting central defensive partnership between the cultured Jan Vertonghen and the cool Toby Alderweireld. They occupy the full-back positions for Belgium, but Mauricio Pochettino – once an exceptional centre back for Argentina – is convinced they belong at the heart of the defence.

IMPROVEMENT from Eric Dier, settling to his role as a midfield anchorman with a tackle that is firm and fair. He would rather be in the back line, but is determined to do his best for the team regardless of where he plays.

ENERGY AND ENTHUSIAM from Ryan Mason, thriving on the extra responsibility given to him in emergency by Pochettino. The team is desperately missing the poise and purpose of injured Christian Eriksen, but Mason did his best to fill the void. It’s not his fault he has less flair, and nobody could fault his driving and determined input.......

Spurs Odyssey match report - Spurs v Everton, 29.08.15
· Spurs 0 Everton 0 - Spurs stirred, but Everton were not shaken

Both teams were keen to win this game to re-launch their season, but neither could find the fire power to bother the scorers. Possession over the whole game was 50/50, but until the latter stages, I'd say that Spurs looked in control, whereas I always felt Everton might catch us out, especially towards the end of the game....

........In the meantime, Mauricio Pochettino is more than happy to put his faith in the young Spurs, with Nabil Bentaleb restored to the starting line-up beside the impressive Eric Dier, whilst Ryan Mason took up the central position in front of these two, with Dembele on the right and Chadli on the left. Harry Kane was well policed by John Stones and Phil Jagielka........

Spurs Odyssey match report - Leicester v Spurs, 22.08.15
· Leicester 1 Spurs 1 - Alli stings, but Mahrez bites back!

When Spurs’ 19 year old substitute Dele Alli scored an 81st minute goal in front of his adoring away fans, it was a magical moment for the player and those fans who had greeted him onto the field with chants of “Dele Alli” when he had replaced Erik Lamela. It also looked as if that goal might be enough to secure Mauricio Pochettino his first win of the season, but his team fell asleep at the kick-off and immediately allowed Riyad Mahrez to cut in from the right-hand side into the Spurs area, before beating Hugo Lloris with a left footed shot to the far post. The King Power Stadium was in raptures, and the point was enough to put them level top of the table with seven points. That’s five more than Spurs, who are at the wrong end of the table........

The Spurs Odyssey message board is often the first place to hear genuine "ITK" information about our beloved team, and it also has an off-topic section where non-football matters are discussed.

There is also a great archive of filed material with links to some great Spurs history and goals.

If you would like to become even more involved, then please e-mail me (webmaster@spursodyssey.com) stating your full name, address (Town and Country will suffice!) and desired user name, and I will do the rest.

I look forward to hearing from you!
