Young Professionals – Progress Check

Windy ’bout to drop the knowledge. For more updates on our youth players & players out on loan follow Windy on twitter WindyCOYS or on his blog windycoys.com. A number of players from Tim Sherwood’s “Development Squad” (this name seems to be catching on across the football world!) have made their first team debuts this season, so it seems a good time to consider the progress of some of them. Jake Livermore, 21 Livermore is proving me wrong. I had totally written him off as a Spurs player, and was surprised when Redknapp started to use him in the first... Read more »

Thelonious goes to Fulham

Every now and then The Fighting Cock’s own Thelonious Filth travels around the British Isles following the mighty Lilywhites. When he travels he takes his recorder. This is what he’s got for you. BANG. Thelonious goes to Fulham

I’ve applied for Redknapp’s Job

By Sibs (SibsTHFC) Dear Mr Levy, I am writing to you regarding the position of Manager of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club. Between heart operations, the tax man and the England job it’s only a matter of time before Mr. Redknapp absconds/leaves, and I would like to get my application in early for consideration. I’d imagine that Mark Hughes has as well, and that Martin O’Neill – he’s always sniffing around. Anyway, you’re a busy man so lets get down to brass tacks. My managerial experience is based largely on my successful promotion of Boston United promoted from the Conference to... Read more »

The Fighting Cockerels – Spurs During The War Years

By Sibs (SibsTHFC) On the outbreak of the First World War in 1915, many Spurs players and staff were recruited to form No 1 Section 22 Field Company, Royal Engineers. They had played football together, enlisted into the army together, fought side by side together and, sadly, eleven of them died together. After the war the Spurs Handbook recorded the 11 deaths. On the combined effort to achieve victory in the great game of war we can look with solemn pride. Naturally, our thoughts revert to those who fought and fell. It is rather a long list who made the...

Hash tag Davroatemyhamster

By Sibs (SibsTHFC) It all started out harmlessly enough. A few lads asking for a simple retweet from Spurs player and ‘celebrity’ fans. Every retweet would help spread the word about The Fighting Cock podcast and in turn capture a few more Spurs fan who have grown weary of the ‘other’ podcasts available. A few people responded to the request. These people we love. They have gone up in our estimation and we thank them for their support. One man simply ignored all requests for a retweet. Davro. Impressionist, comedian and, in this case, pantomime villain. Little did he know... Read more »

Is this the Tottenham Whisper?

Masses of thanks to Simon B for this email that goes some way to perhaps giving us an indication of what the Tottenham Whisper is all about. If you’re wondering yourself, check out Episode 4 of The Fighting Cock podcast and ‘The Tottenham Miscellany’ by Martin Cloake and Adam Powley. First up great work on the podcasts. I have garnered many a strange look while grinning to myself when listening to them through headphones about the town. I admit to being a bit late to the Fighting cock Podcast Party, only starting to listen from Podcast 10 I have since... Read more »

We’re gonna win the league!

By Sibs (SibsTHFC) It’s rare that we genuinely have something to brag about, but in the last 7 games we really do. The official Premier League form guide doesn’t lie – we are level with Man City, and 4 points ahead of the Scum in the last 6 games. With the games we have coming up I don’t think this unbeaten run is going to stop just yet either. Usually I would not mutter such gravities for fear of jinxing something, or having to eat my words next weekend, but we can go unbeaten for another 6 games – until we play... Read more »

Movember

Remember, remember the whole of November……because we’re all growing a moustache for charity. You may have heard of Movember already, but here’s the deal, you grow a moustache for the whole of November to raise awareness for prostate cancer and contribute all donations to the Movember charity. The rules are very simple, no facial hair on the 1st November, and then you continue to shave every area except the moustache. You can style it out and trim it if you like, but you HAVE to keep the moustache. I say bushier the better, isn’t that right Mrs. Chicago Dan’s mum.... Read more »
