The first day of the new Premier League season, and back on the spike. The expected result, but a decent enough performance…

Trailing 2-1 at the interval, we had much the better of the second half. Efforts from Mo Diame and Salomon Rondon coming back off the post and crossbar respectively. Fine Margins…

The first really cold night of the season; gloves definitely required. Spurs dominated possession, but two fantastic first half finishes from Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez ended up being decisive..

Harry Kane pulled a goal back late on, and despite a late penalty appeal, Leicester hung on…

Newcastle United 0 Tottenham Hotspur 2

Ticket: £45 – Programme: £3

We picked up in the Premiership exactly where we left some 15 months ago, unfortunately there was to be no repeat of the score from the last meeting…

Although we offered little going forward, we were comfortable in the first half. In fact, Tottenham were lucky to end the half with eleven men, as Harry Kane should have beeb sent off for a two footed tackle from behind that it was subsequently confirmed has put Florian Lejeune out of action for a month…

Pre-Match…

The game finally turned in Spurs’ favour in the 48th minute when Jonjo Shelvey was sent off for standing on Dele Alli, in full view of the referee. Alli subsequently put Spurs in front, tucking home unmarked from an Eriksen cross. Ben Davies then made the game safe with 20 minutes left to play…

And just an observation, but when are the FA finally going to do something about the anti-semitic Tottenham songbook? I’m guessing that it won’t be while they’re rent paying tenants at Wembley…
