Beverley Smith is one of the army of Spurs fans who follow our fortunes from around the world. This year, her dream of seeing her beloved Spurs play within reach of her home came true. Beverley is a regular contributor to The Spurs List, and has kindly given her permission for her excellent account of seeing Spurs in Seattle here:-
"Where do you begin when you want to start to write down the memories of such an incredible two days. Being an overseas Spurs supporter can be a challenge – I look back over the last 18 years I’ve been in Vancouver and have memories of me having to endure a penalty shoot out via Football 365 live, constantly refreshing the page; to years of streaming games from China with foreign language commentary; to the pretty inconvenient times that games can be shown live and having to totally disconnect yourself from social media to be sure that you don’t get to learn the result; to having to watch Spurs defeats against the Ars* at 5:00 am and then having the rest of your day as a write off as you are so gutted by the result; to staying up to 2:00 am to try to get tickets when they go on sale. So when the team you’ve loved your whole life virtually comes to your door step, it becomes a big deal – no a HUGE deal!"
It is a real treat for Spurs Odyssey readers to have an accomplished sports writer such as Norman Giller writing for us every week, come rain or shine. This week, Norman reviews Spurs' first friendly of the season in Seattle, and reveals that Swansea's Ben Davies is flying out to meet Spurs!
As usual Norman announces another lucky prize winner and a new teaser, with a copy of his recent Bill Nicholson 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!
Some of you Spurs fans might be interested in betting occasionally, whether in favour of your team or in a different match. The Gambling.net betting guide includes a number of options for regular and occasional bettors. There are plenty of options available for those wishing to try your luck online.
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.
