Hello Spurs Spans. We’ve got Rob White and Martin Cloake on the pod. Enough said. We look back on the WBA win, Holtby love-in, discuss threesome conspiracies and an Indian Freund. We look back on the transfer window and give credit to Jermaine Jenas (don’t playa hate). We also playa hate. There’s a Leandro transfer autopsy. He’s not literally dead but the deal to sign him probably is. Martin and Rob talk Spurs history and the match-day experience at the Lane (anyone got a time machine?), loyalty point controversy and fan fragmentation. We preview Newcastle at the Lane. 5-0 or...
