The Pilgrimage (Part 2) – 22/10/2017 It was a bit of a risk really. I mean, scheduling our trip to basically end after Spurs hosted Liverpool at Wembley… It had the potential to end badly, didn’t it? Of course, it didn’t though. Not by a long, long way. I’ve mentioned, quietly, that my record watching Spurs live is pretty good. I’m 100% in the Premier League over the years and, when you include European...

The Pilgrimage (Part 2) – 15/10/2017 A day after one of the highlights (so far) of our trip, Theo and I were down on the south coast to watch Southampton take on Newcastle United in part 2 of our weekend’s Premier League double header. This was a rougher, more authentic footballing experience. Far more so than yesterday. I think I suggested yesterday that Wembley ain’t the home of Tottenham Hotspur. Even though Spurs fans...

The Pilgrimage (Part 2) – 14/10/2017 The last time I watched Tottenham Hotspur live they won 1-0 thanks to a Christian Eriksen goal. On that day, back in 2014, I was on Pilgrimage 1 with Nathan.

The match against Bournemouth today was at Wembley – in theory a much...

The Pilgrimage (Part 2) – 07 & 08/10/2017 Theo and I spent last weekend in Ireland with ex-Swift, Marcus Woods, and his family and, as you’d expect, our time in the Emerald Isle was full of football. We arrived at Dublin airport on the Friday afternoon and were met by Marcus and his son, Daniel. Theo and Daniel are the same age and hit it off immediately…almost too well and too quickly! It was great to see...

The Pilgrimage (Part 2) – 05/10/2017 Theo and I headed to our first football match of the trip – England v Slovenia at Wembley – after a full day of tourist stuff. I wasn’t sure that was the best of plans (the amount of tourist stuff) only a couple of days after arriving, but we managed remarkably well. The tube ride from Westminster Station to Wembley Park went quickly, even in rush hour, and we made it to the...
