Re: EPL 23/24

The ultimate paradox for a spurs fan: Support your team to get a result against Man City or support Man City against your team to prevent your rivals (potentially) winning the league? As a lifelong Spurs fan, I couldn't actively want any team to beat whatever team we put out, even if the south Lond...

Re: EPL 23/24

Strange how the fixtures have worked out.

After Samantha’s great equaliser, Carpenter’s mistake led to 1-2 and curtains. Was Kerr’s missed volley when it was still 1-1?
