S2 E64 - Go to a restaurant, have a beer

PLOT: The Podders review the 1-0 loss to the Scousers which didn't feel like that bad a result in context of the current situation, in fact Jose said his players should be upbeat and advised them to go out and have a beer. They look at the tactics and team selection as new boy Japhet Tanganga got his Premier league debut. Good and bad performances are discussed as well as what could well be the last time we see Mr Eriksen at WHL.

Coming to you from Mike’s Golders Green kitchen, they discuss Liverpool’s visit this weekend.

Gary Stevens (Spurs player '83-90) and Seb Short (match reviewer) answer questions from host Paul (OzSpurs), and Cheese Heads via our FB page. Namely: What happened at Middlesbrough? Are we any better under Jose than we were under Poch? Does anybody know what our best 11 is? What are we going to do without Kane? Is Parrott ready for the Premier League? What should we do in the Jan transfer window? Who should come in? Who should go out? Would you take Bale back, and would he lift the club? Are you Levy IN or Levy OUT? Have ENIC taken us as far as they can? And... much, much more! There's also time for "Champ, Bellend and Moment of the Week" with the incomparable one, Vlad.

S2 E60 - New Year, same Spurs

PLOT: The UK based Podders review the awful 1-0 loss to the Saints.  Not only was it a poor result but we also lost Harry Kane to what looks to be a potentially troublesome injury.  Tactics, team selection and a lack of desire from the players are all scrutinised as well as a look forward to what potential signings we should be making now that the window is open.

S2 E59 - 2019: From MoPo to JoMo

PLOT: The crew review the year that was, discussing the great joys and regrets of 2019. They also take a whimsical look back on a quite amazing decade for the club in which we made 5 champions leagues including the final in Madrid; ended up finishing with more points (703) than those scumbags from down the road in Woolwich (702), and YET conversely, perversely... did not win any fackin’ silverware! They also choose the champion, bellend and moment of 2019. Finally, there’s still time for a brief mini preview of the Southampton game. Please add your thoughts to the post comments on FB or Twitter. Love to hear your views. Happy New Year everyone, and here's hoping 2020 is a great one for Spurs!
