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 »

Stratford – a view from across the pond

By Mike Stevenson (mikeinparma) 6 November, 1995. Cleveland, Ohio. The NFL’s Cleveland Browns were losing revenue in the outdated and crumbling Municipal Stadium, nor were they receiving any civic support to renovate, owner Art Modell announced he and the Browns were leaving in the following season. And not 10 miles east into Euclid, but rather 311 miles to Baltimore, Maryland. It was a truly devastating moment. I had lost the team I grew up supporting. We were left empty handed, while the new team in Baltimore got a new stadium and quickly won the title that we in Cleveland had been craving... Read more »

Meet The Fan Behind The Fighting Cock Podcast

There have been a couple of other attempts from other well-meaning fans, but all seem to have petered out. And the problem with The Spurs Show is it’s not amazingly good. It’s run of the mill, mediocre… there’s just something missing…... Read more »

God Save the King

The following is an email exchange IAmJustAli had with the Club. Dear Mr Levy, Firstly I would like to congratulate you on the progression the club has made under your stewardship. We have made huge strides, from being a club that I used to get unbelievable stick for supporting in the 1990s, to being able to hand it out to others over the last few years. The Champions League run was a huge achievement, and there is no shame in missing out to Man City’s endless pot of gold this season. I am not lucky enough to possess a season... Read more »
