A Man for Their Seasons: Pat Jennings and the North London Derby

As we approach another iteration of the North London derby between Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, rival supporters could perhaps be forgiven for spewing forth a bit extra vitriol to relieve the increased feelings of tension. Each club has seen its own recent failures laid bare for international football media to critique, new ownership issues making Arsenal fans nervous as to what the…

Match Of The Midweek: Real Madrid 4-0 Tottenham Hotspur

For Spurs supporters, matches like this evening’s – Real Madrid at the Estadio Santiago Bernabau – are, perhaps, what have been missing for all these years.

The Olympic Stadium’s Legacy Must Be As It Was Intended

The final submissions, then, are complete and now comes the waiting game. The tug of war over the Olympic Stadium has become one of the more unseemly events of the football season so far, a desperate battle for a piece of land that very few people involved in football had a great deal of interest…

Spurs And The Olympic Stadium: Stratford Hotspur Or A New Beginning?

Supporters of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club are well-versed in the history of where their club comes from. The stories of grammar boys meeting under gaslight on a street corner are well woven into the fabric that makes up the history of the club, but the question that their supporters are now asking is not where…
