· Critical Summer For Spurs

The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

Tottenham will enter their first full season back at White Hart Lane with expectations high. The 2019-20 season will be crucial for the future of Spurs, as the time for the club to win a trophy seems to be impending.

The long-term future of Mauricio Pochettino seems to have worked out how fans would have hoped with Real Madrid instead opting for Zinedine Zidane and Manchester United looking likely to appoint interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Pochettino hasn’t yet signed a new contract, but all the signs point to the Argentinean remaining at the club.

However, the pressure will mount next season, and the club is going to require a big summer to cut the gap between themselves and the other leading clubs in England..........

Norman Giller's View - 18.03.19
· The day Dave Mackay refused to walk

The day Dave Mackay refused to walk

Two successive weekends without Spurs playing are reducing true Lilywhite supporters to being like gourmets denied food. Then suddenly we are going to be gorging ourselves, particularly with the Champions League quarter-final draw pitching us into three matches against mighty Manchester City in just ten days.

There is also, of course, the little matter of returning to action at Liverpool on Sunday week before the grand opening of the state-of-the-art stadium against Crystal Palace on Wednesday April 3rd and the launch of an exciting, new Tottenham era.

I start to shiver just thinking about the Spurs spring, and wonder how we will all be feeling come the end of April, apart from exhausted? Oh to be Mystic Meg.

How best to fill our time waiting for one of the most vital periods in Spurs history to kick-off? Let’s disappear into the past for a while. Unashamedly plugging my paperback Spurs ’67 book, I invite you to come back with me to 52 years ago this month................

This was a good performance in difficult conditions with Spurs adjusting better than the home side. Shashoua and Markanday dominated the midfield and were rewarded with the goals that keep Spurs just behind Arsenal at the top of the table. The gooners have opened up a four point lead but Spurs have two games in hand. One of those is the Southampton game to be held at White Hart Lane next Sunday with an expected crowd of around 30,000. Lets hope that they rise to the occasion and close the gap on the leaders...............

· Tottenham's recruitment must improve after stadium move

The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

Tottenham Hotspur’s move to the new stadium should be the prelude to a wonderful new era for the club. Hard work over the last half a decade has led to the production of a team that consistently attains Champions League qualification with relative comfort.

That should be attained once again this season with a top-four finish at 4/6 with Betway (as of 13 March) even if back-to-back defeats puts an element of pressure back on with trips to Liverpool and Man City coming up.

In some ways, it seems churlish to question a club that has been so influential in the development of young, British players, whilst becoming ensconced in English football’s elite..........

Spurs Odyssey Premier League Match Report
· Southampton 2 Spurs 1 - Saints alive! Spurs are fading
· Southampton v Spurs - Pochettino is feeling sore

After the glory of beating Borussia Dortmund 4-0 on aggregate to reach the Champions League quarter-final came this third successive away defeat against a side battling relegation, who managed to come back from a first half lead which should have been bigger following Spurs’ domination of that period. We hardly managed a shot on goal in the second half, allowing the “Saints” to take the initiative and come back for what was a vital home win – their first (at home) over Tottenham since 2005. As for Spurs, with those three defeats in the last four games and a home draw against Arsenal, their chances of clinging onto a top four place to qualify for next year’s Champions League are fading badly. Two of those defeats have come against lower league sides. Such form and the risk of no Champions League next season takes the shine off the prospect of at last playing at “New White Hart Lane” next month...........

Westfalenstadion - 05.03.19

The club logo of Borussia Dortmund It truly was another of those great European nights for Tottenham Hotspur and their fans. The fans offered a great atmosphere. The team offered a stalwart defensive performance, with a string of great saves by Hugo Lloris, and of course "King Harry" (much revered and genuinely feared by the German press) scored a truly thunderous goal which put the final nail in the BVB coffin, deflating the German team and its fans for the remainder of the game.

Such was my elevated position (two rows from the highest spot in the stadium) that I could not see the uoper part of the pre-match logo offered by the famous "yellow wall" at Signal_Iduna Park. I could not make out the numbers of the German players, and I certainly cannot do better than offer you this report (with many thanks) by John Ellis, who i think says all that we need to know regarding a wonderful Spurs occasion............

Wembley Stadium - 02.03.19

Spurs' highest Premier League crowd of the season turned out for this Saturday lunchtime North London Derby which meant so much to both clubs, the teams and fans. This was a true "six-pointer", and having been behind for almost an hour of the game after Ramsey's opener for Arsenal, I think we have to be grateful for a share of the points.

Harry Kane had levelled the scores with a 74th minute penalty, but it looked as if Spurs would lose the game to an added time Arsenal penalty, which was poorly taken by Aubameyang, but well saved by Hugo Lloris, diving to his right.

The sun shone upon Wembley for what we all hope will be our last Premier League game played at out temporary home where we have been in residence for over 18 months. Whilst there has been no confirmation as yet, the hope is that our remaining home games will be played at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium............

Spurs Odyssey Message Board

Spurs Odyssey Message Board

Visit the Spurs Odyssey Message Board

The most epic thread on The Spurs Odyssey message board is one which started in 2010. This provides the history of our new stadium applications (including the thankfully unsuccessful bid for the Olympic Stadium) right up to the present day with images of the completed new stadium. In the early hours of Saturday 20th October, 2018, our stadium thread reached 1,000 pages! There is a genuine community feel about the board, which is moderated.

Every Spurs match is covered with excellent threads, which feature images and stats from previous games. There is so much to enjoy about the message board which 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!
