Background on why this site
I am a longtime Spurs fan. And recent (since 2021/22) Tottenham Women’s team Season Ticket holder.
Since becoming a season ticket holder I try to attend all our home games and as many away games as possible. And it’s been a joy!
But as I’ve become more engaged with Spurs Women I’ve been struck by the lack of content or analysis out there, especially in comparison to the men’s game but even relative to other WSL teams.
Starting this site is about collating good content, increasing the volume of Spurs Women chat, raising the team’s profile and providing a space for debate – about THWFC and women’s football more generally. Another aspect of that has involved working with other fans to start the N17Women podcast.
Other than international tournaments I’m pretty new to the women’s game so will probably miss things that are obvious or get newly mad about long-time bugbears. Apologies in advance. In addition what’s here undoubtedly reflects my biases. For instance, I love listening to football podcasts and can spend forever digging through stats, so you’ll find lots of links to these, whereas I don’t do Facebook or Instagram so there won’t be much of that! At the same time I’m diving feet-first into developing this site without any experience of blogging or skills in web development so expect some clunkiness and ugly formatting! And, because I have a day-job, there’s a chance updates will sometimes be slow. That said, if you’re a Spurs Women fan (or a Spurs fan, curious about the women’s game) hopefully you’ll find what’s here useful in helping you to engage with and support the mighty Tottenham Hotspur Women.
If you have suggestions about things to add or change, and especially if you would like to contribute something, please get in touch. I’m hoping that the site will soon become a more collective endeavour!
Meanwhile I will be dragging everyone I know to games at the Hive and working out how the hell to get to Kingsmeadow via public transport (how can a team as successful as Chelsea Women have a home stadium in such a ridiculous place?).
My last published football commentary, was about whether I’d be watching the 1983 FA Cup. I appeared in the long-defunct Look-In, alongside Nick Heyward, Madness and the Belle Stars
