Two games won, only thirty-six more to go

It’s all looking unusually easy at the moment for Spurs; another professional if not spectacular display at the weekend saw three points added to our early season total.

Kicking off the European adventure in style

The thought of a playoff round is enough to induce panic within even the most optimistic of Spurs fans. We just don’t like them.

Why Wigan’s woe puts Spurs’ DW fortunes into perspective

While the majority of Tottenham Hotspur fans rejoiced, kakked themselves and bled white and Dave Whelan blue for all of 20 odd minutes last night, the writing felt very much on the wall for our mooted Champions League saviors last night. It was hardly a vintage Arse performance by any stretch of the imagination although… Continue reading Why Wigan’s woe puts Spurs’ DW fortunes into perspective
