    Spurs News & Views

    For talking about Spurs.

    Transfer Rumours

    All transfer talk goes into its own little forum. Available when the transfer window is open.

    General Football

    If you want to talk about football that doesn't involve Spurs.

    Randomination

    Want to talk about something besides football? :-s Random's your place.

    The Glory Glory Hole

    Betting, drugs and ****.

    Classic Threads

    Looking for an old thread, but can't find it? It might just be in Classics

    Wiki

    Prediction League

    Think you can match the clairvoyance of Lawro and Merson?

    Blogs/Front Page Articles

    You may notice that the front page can look pretty dull at times. We need people to start writing blogs and articles for the site.

    It's easily done, you just write a post (in an existing or new topic), make it interesting and preferably insightful. Please make sure you check your spelling, etc.

    You should all have the ability to blog your own post, if not I'll take a look at permissions. If you want a post to become a front page article, just PM a mod/admin and one of us will do the rest.

    Affy, after the bitching I got from you about blogs I expect you to be a regular contributor!

    I'm New Here

    Site Rules

    If you think a post is in breach of the site rules, which of course all of you are completely up to date on, there's a small symbol underneath them that let you report it to the admins.

    Official Match Threads

    1. There shalt be only one Official Match Thread and it shalt have OMT in its title.

    2. Thou shalt not take unto thee a graven image of thy own choice should Tottenham lose, thy avatar shalt be given thee by the OMT gods and shalt remain until such time as Tottenham win again.

    3. Thou shalt not take the name of thy club in vain, the OMT title shalt always have the name of Tottenham Hotspur listed first of the two teams.

    4. Remember to observe the sabbath between OMTs, thou shalt not start two consecutive OMTs.

    5. Honour the OMT gods' official representatives the administrators, that your days may be long on this forum that be Glory-Glory.

    6. The OMT's opening post shalt inform the members of Glory-Glory of all things important: Who are we playing? When is the match? Where does it take place?

    7. The OMT's opening post shalt not be too short, nor too long, but simple, concise and glorious, to truly honour the OMT gods. A possible starting lineup and pictures of furry animals are not frowned upon.

    8. The first OMT posted once the previous OMT has been unstickied shalt be the official one, though there is no glory in one not of the required quality.

    9. Thou shalt not start an OMT be thou not a known member of this forum.

    10. Thou shalt not start an OMT be thou not a fan of Tottenham Hotspur.

    Well, I went ahead and blogged the loans stuff I'm doing. Any ideas how I can edit the blog entry itself to update it? I can only edit the replies I made.

    My Lord of all that is pure and innocent.

    Scara has given us the ultimate kiss of death.

    All the Official OMT gods will enact revenge for this abomination.

    I'll take 8th now.

    Hmmm, bit of a permissions ****up there I think.

    Should be fixed now.

    Zin, thanks for taking part, nice to see someone bothered after all the bitching I got for there not being a blog available (not looking at you affy).

    scara, any chance of raising the blog limit? It's currently at 10000 characters and I think I'm on 9999! Any more loans and I will have to break it up.

    Afraid not :(

    The text that you have entered is too long (10108 characters). Please shorten it to 10000 characters long.

    Scara, any chance of getting this limit removed? I would like to add some more detail without having to break up the blog.

    I told them we already got one
    Scara do we have any kind of relationship with the club through press or PR channels? Or do we know how the club views this forum -ie good or bad? I write for a living, including for one of the nationals. I may have some spare time in March and was thinking of approaching the club to do a piece on something that could then be posted here. (I have a few ideas). But before I approached them I thought I'd better check what the situation was in terms of our relationship with them.

    Could one of the mods/admins grab scaramanga's attention about this please? I've tried PM a few days ago now but I don't know if he's seen it. This and the 4 image limit per post is basically not letting me update the blog properly.

    Just figured out the limit on the characters is only on the first post, all subsequent comments don't have a limit. So basically I need the main post to have the limit removed as well as the image limit removed for main post and comments if poss...
