Who made this website?

This is the hobby project of one Spurs fan from Australia. It's just me building and refining it in my spare time.

Why did you make it?

I love seeing how different things connect at Spurs; for example, I really wanted a way to see a history of Spurs matches by kit. That green kit is famous for Ajax away, but which other matches did we wear it in?

Where does the data come from?

For historical data, I compiled the data from various sources on the internet, manually cleaning and formatting it for the interface I wanted. Those sources include:

I believe all data I have used is publicly available and free to reproduce, however, if you have any concerns please let me know.

For everything that's happened since I built the site -- January 2023 -- I've added it manually. Matches, lineups, transfers etc.

How did you build the site?

The site is built on Craft CMS and massively leans on the Sprig plugin. I use Tailwind CSS and Alpine JS on the front end and have some custom PHP modules performing different things with data.

Recent Features

I'm constantly building new things and most recently I've added:

  • Reports - specialised reports on certain types of data
  • ability to track matches by matchday and kick-off time (for example, all matches on Friday at 8pm)
  • manager cards (Ange was booked in the match against Bournemouth on New Years Eve 2023)
  • programme covers; this is a big feature and it's hard to track down all programmes. I've also tagged players that feature on a programme cover, so you can see all of those

What I'm working on

  • full lineup and goalscorer history
  • formations & positions: this is a big one and I have to edit every single match individually. Currently I have all matches from 2003 onwards with full formations and position details
  • the full kit history

Can I help?

I get lots of requests for more data visualisation options. I'm not a data expert by any means, so if that's something you're interested in helping with I'd be happy to hear from you.

Can I support you in other ways?

I'm never going to have ads or anything like that, and although you can create an account from additional features, I'll never charge for any access. However, it does take a bit of time to maintain and add features and the licenses and hosting cost a bit of money, so if you want to chip in, that would be amazing! You can donate here.
