S2 E14 - Champs League, Kane and the Mental Game

September 11, 2019

PLOT: Part 1: On S2 E14 Gary Stevens joins host Mr. Jolly to discuss a variety of topical subjects in the land of Spurs. They ruminate over the upcoming champs league fixtures; and Mr. J asks Gary to reminisce about when he played for Spurs against Munich in December 1983, and knocked them out on the way to winning the UEFA Cup trophy. They also discuss the impact of International breaks on players and club; as well as Harry Kane’s form and the diving allegations against him. Finally they chat about the some of the internal goings on at the club and discuss Danny Rose’s latest chat with the press, as well as his documented mental health issues. Gary then shares his own experiences with the mental side of the game as a player and in his retirement. As ever, when we are joined by Gary, it's a fascinating and informative listen. 

Part 2: Paul Fellowes from OzSpurs interviews Glen Osborne, a Spurs fan from Perth, Western Australia, who has commentated on the World Cup, and also interviewed Ossie Ardiles, Ledley and Shaggy Anderton about his work and Spurs fandom.
