Tottenham On My Mind is a fan’s blog about Tottenham Hotspur. The Spurs. History, the present, the future.
This is an old-fashioned blog by an old-fashioned supporter who has stood and then sat on the Shelf for 50 years. For news and ITK, go elsewhere. It’s personal – read this and after a while you’ll get to know me. No alias, no contributors, no ads, just me.
You’ve come this far. Stay awhile and this is what you’ll find.
From 2009 to autumn 2017, there are regular pieces based around most of the matches, but more than just a match report. I took a break, then resumed in March 2018, same style, but less frequently and less match-focussed.
Articles about anything that’s happening at the club.
Pieces about British football in general.
If you know your history, it’s how we understand who we are, yet in a society obsessed with instant gratification, football history seems to begin in August 1992. Not here. And we are the fans. Loyal, often ignored and marginalised in this age of sponsorship, inflated ticket prices and satellite television. Players, managers and chairmen come and go, some last longer in the memory than others but we stay, we are the heritage of this mighty, wonderful frustrating club. Our story needs to be told. And with Martin Cloake, that’s what I’ve tried to do, in A People’s History of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club – how Spurs fans shaped the identity of one of the world’s most famous clubs.
