Your Spurs x culture podcast, with Ash, Billie T, Charlie, Rosa and Tom. HG is committed to covering the Tottenham Hotspur men's and women's teams, and tapping into the Spurs fan experience. We're talking the grief and glory of being fully COYS: cult heroes; iconic shirts; comically miserable away days; everything from Amsterdam to Zagreg. The team are also dedicated to bringing you music, TV, film, books and art recommendations we know you’ll love. Plus guests! We have very special guests f ...

Deep breath, everyone: the Spurs rollercoaster has pulled in until Boxing Day! Billie, Charlie, Rosa, Tom and friend of the show Tara try and make sense of the barmy 4-3 win over Leeds—with Tara talking us through her experience watching the game with none other than Elisabetta Conte (Antonio's wife!). There's, of course, much love put in the direc…
 
Charlie, Rosa and Tom strap in for the emotional aftermath of defeat to Liverpool, while clinging to certain positives. Positive number one: our glorious returning Swede. We ask if booing in the stadium is ever acceptable (and whether we as Spurs fans have gone a bit boo mad after Nuno's boo-aided dismissal) before reviewing the Champions League dr…
 
Love football, hate VAR. Ash, Rosa and Tom celebrate the joyous last minute winner at Bournemouth and try not to get TOO tinfoil about the disallowed goal against Sporting. We crown Rodrigo Bentancur player of the season so far and hope we don’t have to play another match without him, ever. There are nervous looks to Marseille and Liverpool, Rosa i…
 
As surely as night follows day, this week the Tottenham rollercoaster took a real nosedive. Billie and Rosa cling on for dear life as they discuss what went wrong and try to work out if we’re heading back up any time soon. Listeners share their best (worst?) post-defeat tantrums, Rosa rants about Spurs Women having no money, and we get extremely hy…
 
We’re good! Right? Ash, Billie and Rosa revel in the professional win against Everton, and Sonny's spectacular goals in the…less professional win over Frankfurt. Höjbjerg Haters are dispatched to the dustbin of history, Doherty gets some extra love, we try to find some more superlatives for Kane, and look cautiously ahead to Old Trafford. Plus, Spu…
 
Tom, Rosa and Billie reflect on the Brighton win and the emotional scenes after the death of Gian Piero Ventrone. Kane gets his flowers, not least for his CBeebies appearance, and the gang worry about German fans sneaking drums in on Wednesday. Your memories of underrated goals go to amazing depths before Tom and Rosa wang on about Strictly Come Da…
 
The team contends with a tough COYS week—trying their best to keep level heads. In Antonio we trust. A tricky trip to Frankfurt is analysed, as our the issues facing the squad as they enter a big few weeks and, more importantly, the issues facing men's football at large. We examine the start Spurs Women have made to their season, and give up our la…
 
Cockerels > Foxes. Charlie, Rosa and Tom celebrate the weekend double over Leicester. There's plenty of Sonny joy to bathe in, a big, (accidentally) existential chat around "ConteBall", Rosa's valiant Davinson defence and a love letter for the incredible South Korean fans to get into from the Men's chaotic thrashing, before we dive into Spurs Women…
 
Charlie, Billie and Rosa are joined by Caroline Stefko of the N17 Women podcast as they mull over defeat in Lisbon and its rather outsized reaction online. How, we ask, does this team become properly fun? Rosa’s answer will make you feel better, we promise. There’s a look ahead to Antonio’s selection posers for the visit of Leicester, and Caroline …
 
Still unbeaten and suddenly fun to watch? A good weekend to be Spurs! The full HG lineup toasts the entertaining Fulham win, with special mentions for Richarlison—WHL’s new "main character syndrome" king—and our impressive central midfield duo. Rosa, meanwhile, considers a French affair, we ask if Sonny is now back, remember to praise the perennial…
 
We’re back after a too-long break to talk about that draw at West Ham. What else did we learn from Wolves and Forest? How are we unbeaten yet playing badly? Are we actually playing that badly? 10 years in, why do we love Hugo so much? And is the Fulham match cursed? If you fancy skipping to certain bits: 00:00 — West Ham 14:20 — Hugo, our French ki…
 
We pick the bones out of a raucous visit to Stamford Bridge: How did we manage to get out of there with a point despite that performance? (Spoiler: Richarlison and Perišić.) Are we sometimes too quick to absolve Antonio of blame? What worried us about the performance and why did so many of the players look spooked by the occasion? How impressive is…
 
The team recounts a hot, hazy, Pimm's-fuelled day in N17 as Spurs thrashed a hapless Southampton. Which iconic artist does Billie compare Emerson Royal to? Has Rosa passed on her curse? Will Tom accept Charlie’s drink challenge? Are we into Enter Sandman becoming our walk-out music and will we miss Duel of the Fates? And which UKG MC was at the sam…
 
We cannot wait for Saturday. To help get us in the mood, the team tackles 10 season-defining questions (including: first meltdowns, dream Champions League opponents, pre-match music revamps, favourite N17 pubs and the definitive take on the away shirt) before predicting how the opening game will actually go. Rosa speaks beautifully on women's footb…
 
We’re back! The team reunites to each reveal our favourite summer signing (so far) and play keep/sell/loan with Antonio’s unfavoureds, while Billie hits us with his first Rolling In the Tweets (and thank you for all your entries on your favourite pre-season memories!). Elsewhere, we pick apart the "Spurs' transfer window is actually underwhelming" …
 
We did it! They team relive a weirdly stress-free in Norfolk and get very excited about our Champions League return—which might even mean a Saturday 3pm kickoff! There's, of course, special mention for our Golden Boot king Sonny (and his bromance with Gentle Ben), Emerson Royal's latest masterpieces (on and off the pitch) and a sentimental shoutout…
 
Well, here we go then! The team pore over a wild, wild week—starting with the edgy Burnley win, then Arsenal's St James' capitulation before we look ahead to Norwich. Who from the gang is confident and who's been thinking too much about that Newcastle 5-1? We also cast an eye over the entertaining end of season "lap of recognition", celebrate the s…
 
Emergency episode! Who knows what'll happen from here, but we needed to mark a glorious NLD win. We applaud the incredible THS atmosphere, the entire team's professionalism, Dav/Patron's surprise starring role and Sonny rising above it, while trying to make sense of The Arsenal's sense of injustice about it all. We dare to predict how it might play…
 
We review the big pros and potential cons of the 1-1 at Anfield while trying and failing to not get too hysterical over an enormous NLD. Emerson Royal is quite rightly celebrated, Rosa has her big Benjamin Davies moment and we break down Sonny's first 20-goal league season. The team also celebrate a fine season for Spurs Women—including a look at R…
 
The team reviews the Leicester win, the top four marathon and most importantly: Emerson Royal's new video drop. We toast King Sonny and the magic of Kulu, while Cristian Romero's latest no-nonsense masterclass inspires Billie's latest Rolling In the Tweets. Elsewhere, there's a look ahead to a big final week of the season for Spurs Women, and, of c…
 
Level heads! We try not to panic after the Brighton game while looking at what went wrong. Was it Rosa's fault for attending? Harry Kane's for going to the golf? Antonio Conte's for getting outthought by Graham Potter? The crowd's for getting frustrated? Meanwhile, the top four rollercoaster is assessed going into The Christian Eriksen Derby, Charl…
 
The team breaks down a glorious weekend (Doherty news aside). How dirty were Villa or should we not get too The Arsenal about it? Just how much does Tom love Kulu? Is this the very best we've seen of Sonny and H? And should we be worried about Royal now playing every week—and where the hell was his highlights video? We take a check on how we're all…
 
It's getting interesting! The team surveys the top four race—taking in our Newcastle thrashing and Arsenal's defeat at Palace—and gauges just how confident we should now be feeling. We also pay tribute to great goals from Tottenham full-backs (including plenty of incredible listener picks), look ahead to Villa, encourage everyone to come with us to…
 
A joyous and oddly heated episode! We bask in the afterglow of the West Ham win and each predict how the run-in will go down. There's a look at the toughest week imaginable for Spurs Women before we dive into a set of culture picks that sparks a Rosa revelation so shocking Billie is forced to compare her to Michael Owen. Tom, meanwhile, leaves us h…
 
Rob Daly is the much-loved voice of Spurs TV and one of football's best commentators. He takes on our Spurs Seven questions with Charlie and reveals the emotion behind those iconic last-minute Ajax, Leicester and Man City commentaries, gives his verdict on Conte's unpredictable Spurs, gets excited about Kulu's new chant, defends Moussa Sissoko and …
 
The team remain calm as we pick over the United defeat and somehow, sort of, re-talk ourselves into the top four being on. Inspired by Tom watching the game in a Pret, listeners tell us the weirdest places they've watched Spurs, before we talk over Spurs Women's tough loss versus Man City and preview the Brighton and West Ham games. Plus, of course…
 
Back to the top of the Spurs rollercoaster, as we toast the Everton thrashing and prepare for United away. Our Kulu Apology tour continues, we give thanks for Rodrigo Bentancur, consider whether the Wolves Matt Doherty has finally showed up and predict how many goals we'll need Harry to score if we are going to finish in the top four. We also look …
 
In a difficult week, Rosa and Charlie chat over the Boro defeat and consider how to make sense of why we all care *so* much (too much?) about our football teams. Spurs (and Conte) coping strategies are discussed, as is the Chelsea/Abramovich situation, the Everton game and Ashleigh Neville's much-deserved Player of the Month award. Plus, of course,…
 
Spurs are back! Again! We glory in the Man City win, dissect the "utterly deranged narrative" (Rosa) around Spurs right now, settle the Deki/Kulu naming debate, (eventually) salute Harry Kane and reveal the various ways our behaviour during added time troubled our kids. We then look on nervously to Burnley and Leeds and toast the Spurs Women return…
 
To mark the first sightings of Kulu & Bentancur, it's a Spurs Debuts Special! We reveal our favourite memorable Tottenham intros, and present some brilliant picks from you guys (Mido: very popular). There are also reviews of the men's and women's teams victories over Brighton, a look at the Premier League double header at home versus Southampton an…
 
This was an emotional one. We all share our (and your) favourite Dele memories and consider his unique legacy: What made him special? Where did it go wrong? We also, of course, review the January transfer window in full. Did we do enough to keep Antonio happy? How excited are we by Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentancur? Does anyone want to see Tan…
 
We review the highs of Leicester and sobering lows of Spurs-Chelsea IV before handing out mid-term grades to the entire squad. Also: just how will the final week of the transfer window go for Wingers FC? Should we chill out over Conte leaving us, or is that just a part of the neuroses of being a Spurs fan? Can Spurs Women bounce back from a tough c…
 
A cathartic episode. The team share their thoughts on the NLD farce and look ahead to Leicester and (surely not again) Chelsea. We also pay tribute to Lamela's Puskás Award win by considering the best ultimately pointless Spurs goals, commiserate over some last minute devastation for Spurs Women and reveal our weekly culture picks. If you fancy ski…
 
We tackle the Ndombele saga, make sense of the Chelsea and Morecambe debacles and preview the Carabao second leg and Arsenal game. The team also pay (quite underwhelming) tributes to Bergwijn, exchange some (not at all underwhelming) rants about various Spurs nonsense, Charlie tries to sell everyone on Adama and Tom requests an unlikely rebrand. Al…
 
Screenwriter and showrunner Joe Barton tackles our Spurs Seven questions, reveals whether Giri/Haji can be revived, discusses his upcoming Batman and Cloverfield projects plus much, much more. Joe’s Spurs Seven answers are superb: especially if you’re a fan of “brilliant, glorious failure”, Giovani dos Santos, the challenge of keeping your kids awa…
 
HNY! The team give their positives and irritations from the three festive games, preview The Chelsea Triptych and Morecambe in the FA Cup, consider whether we'd actually survive a NLD cup final, present our Spurs New Year's Resolutions and reveal the first culture picks of 2022.

Broadcaster Abbi Summers joins Charlie for our HG Spurs Seven questions. She also talks brilliantly about the challenges of being a woman in football, gives excellent advice on handling trolls and breaks down working across both traditional media and the new, disruptive breed of online, often fan-led coverage. Abbi also explains how supporting Spur…
 
The full HG team break down the Brentford win: How worried are we about H? Is Royal actually decent? Just what has Antonio done to Gentle Ben and Eric Dier? How good is Skipp exactly? Do we need to make more noise inside the stadium? And didn't the place look incredible! We then preview Norwich with cautious excitement and big up Rosa's Jenna Schil…
 
Jenna Schillaci is a true Tottenham hero. She talks Rosa through her astonishing 12-year Spurs career: one that took in eight trophies and captaining our rise from regional football to leading us out in the WSL as a professional outfit. Coming from a huge Tottenham family, Jenna’s HG Spurs Seven answers are brilliant (we especially enjoyed hearing …
 
It's Daws! Our iconic former captain takes on the HG Spurs Seven and talks Conte, why us fans love him, struggles under Ramos and AVB and fun times with Jol and Redknapp, ketchup, his favourite Spurs shirts, Ledley, not wanting to go out in public when Spurs lost, Bale, having spag bol (and garlic bread) before every single game and much, much more…

Billie, Charlie and Tom toast the game-of-two-halves win over Leeds — admitting we enjoyed Conte telling us off, giving Eric Dier and Lucas their dues, heralding the Sessnaissance and Tom and Billie revealing their South Stand half-time bar hacks.

Gary Mabbutt talks Conte, Bill Nic, '84 and '91, nearly becoming Spurs co-boss with Jürgen, rejecting Arsenal (and Dalglish's Liverpool), Lineker's training nonsense, staging a Sol Campbell intervention, Gazza, favourite shirts, Fashanu, The Queen's Nose, and much more as he answers our (soon-to-be-famous) Spurs Seven. This was such a privilege for…
 
Antonio Conte is the Tottenham Hotspur manager, so we needed the gang together for a collective outpouring of joy. We talk Conte tactics, style, transfers and who the Spurs Victor Moses might be. There's also time to pick over the bones of Tottenham's best-ever defeat, break down why Lucas Moura is our Forrest Gump and commemorate The Nuno Interreg…
 
It's a League Cup special! Inspired by the thrilling Burnley win (and your tweets), we reminisce over our favourite League Cup memories. These include: some blatant chant thievery, two beautiful 5-1s, Ash's tricked-out trip to Sheffield and Tom getting misty-eyed about a Walkabout. We also try and conjure some optimism from the recent turgid perfor…
 
Ash, Billie T, Charlie, Rosa and Tom review the humbling of the world's richest club by Nuno's crafty Spurs, consider whether Ash is about to be finally proved right on Tanguy Ndombele, skim over the Conference, get mildly terrified/over-confident by the visit to West Ham and glory in the returns of two of our very favourite things: Adele and Succe…
