Better the devil you know?

Finger pointing There’s a lot of finger pointing and blame apportioning (is that a word?) going on at White Hart Lane. As the 2003/4 season looks more and more like being the worst one since the 70s, everyone is looking for a scapegoat. The board are the latest to feel the heat as Spurs sank […]

Sol-dier of fortune

It’s All Over We’ve had two years of speculation, debate, stories with no foundation. But it’s all over. Sol Campbell declared this weekend that he will walk away from Spurs, ten years after his first-team debut as a scoring striker against Chelsea. The 26-year old, up until now, completely revered in one half of North […]

The Charlton syndrome

Style The buzz word on the lips of all Spurs fans since the dawn of time (well since around 1995), is ‘style’. We only really started to talk about it when we stopped seeing it. The older generation will harp on about the style-laden side of the 60s, while those of my generation will reminisce […]

Fans will be fans

Boo who? As the season trundles miserably on for Spurs, the fans are getting more irate all the time.

George Graham criticized the fans for their backlash despite the […]

They can’t even manage that

Manager blues We’re less than a month into the new Premiership season and already the patterns for the season are being set.

Are we over-reacting here?

The revolution continues In the last four weeks, Spurs have continued their good form, beating and drawing with Man Utd, beating Liverpool and Nottm Forest and losing out narrowly to West Ham despite a good performance. The fans are hailing George Graham’s side as one that is destined for big things. But not all fans […]

Doctor, the vital signs are good

Surgery ‘Nurse, how are the patients vital signs?’ ‘They are very weak doctor, I think we’re going to lose him….!’ ‘Wait a second, I’ve got it…organisation, commitment, self-belief…yes, I think we’re going to save him!!!!’ ‘Doctor Graham, you’ve staved off disaster! Congratulations…’ Erm, hello? Ok, so what am I talking about? I’m talking about the […]

Arse-bandit or ar-saviour

How on earth…? One of my favourite passtimes since I was about 12 years old is playing football management games on the various computer platforms I’ve owned over the years. I remember starting out with the primitive Football Manager on my Atari 800XL and then I moved on to Treble Champions, Football Director and Championship […]
