The Giller Index

"The Giller Index"

Spurs Odyssey is proud to have had Norman Giller writing for us since January, 2014.

Norman has had a long and illustrious career in sports journalism, and has always had Spurs close to his heart, even if he wasn't always allowed to write about them exclusively!

Norman has become such a prolific contributor, submitting an article every week, even whilst on a cruising holiday. I thought it right and proper to provide this "Giller Index".
