Chiltern Court is a grand Portland stone mansion flat building with an illustrious history.

“It is here during the 1930s that some of the leading writers and politicans of the day met to debate women’s and worker’s rights and political events then taking place in Europe.

Spurs 3 Fulham 1

Stunning strikes from Lucas Moura and Kieran Trippier coupled with an August goal in the Premier League for Harry Kane helped us to victory against Fulham on Saturday afternoon.

As we returned to Wembley Stadium for home games at the start of the 2018/19 campaign, we continued our perfect start to the season but were made to work hard for the points by the newly-promoted Cottagers.

Lucas fired us ahead just before the interval with a curling effort from the edge of the area, but Fulham levelled through Aleksandar Mitrovic on 52 minutes.

However, Trippier reproduced his free-kick exploits for England at the World Cup with another magnificent effort to put us back in front in the 74th minute, while Kane scored his first top-flight goal during the month of August on his 15th attempt just three minutes later to wrap up the points.

We certainly made an enterprising start to the contest, Lucas heading wide on six minutes, Kane having penalty claims waved away after a coming together with Timothy Fosu-Mensah in the box before Christian Eriksen hit a 20-yard drive wide.

But the first real save of the game was made by Hugo Lloris following a rare Fulham attack, the World Cup winner getting down low to push away Tom Cairney’s 25 yard drive.
At the other end, Eriksen drove a low free-kick which Fabri saved well to his left on 34 minutes, although again it was the visitors who came closest to breaking the deadlock five minutes later. Jean Michael Seri clipped a ball over the top, Ryan Sessegnon controlled inside the area, but as he turned to shoot, Lloris was already on top of him and smothered the shot.

The opening goal came on 43 minutes and it was a beauty. It was no surprise that it was created down our right flank as we’d had plenty of joy down there all half, Trippier’s clever pass finding Eriksen on the byline. The Dane’s cut-back was cleared by Calum Chambers, but only as far as Lucas who strode onto the ball and magnificently curled it past Fabri.

The second half opened with Fulham on the front foot and they so nearly drew level on 47 minutes when Mitrovic hit a low shot which stuck the foot of the far post with Lloris beaten. Fabri then kept out Dele Alli’s volley before the visitors did equalise. Joe Bryan’s deep cross was missed by Mitrovic inside the six yard box but found Sessegnon at the back post, his miscued shot somehow finding Mitrovic – still on the ground – who lifted his head and nodded home.

It meant we had to start again in search of maximum points and we immediately had Fulham on the defensive again, with the introduction of Mousa Dembele for Davinson Sanchez giving us a lift in midfield.

Dele had a shot cleared off the line and Kane side-footed a volley against the crossbar from Eric Dier’s superb cross before we regained the lead on 74 minutes with a majestic free-kick from Trippier, curling his 30-yard effort past the despairing dive of Fabri.

And within three minutes, we’d added another. Substitute Erik Lamela drove right through the heart of the Fulham defence before laying the ball off to Kane, who turned inside Chambers and tucked a shot into the far corner.

We were able to play with more freedom at this stage and Fabri was called upon to deny Lamela and Kane, while Dele almost added a fourth in stoppage time.

2000 Light Years From Home

Rolling Stones

Sun turnin’ ’round with graceful motion
We’re setting off with soft explosion
Bound for a star with fiery oceans
It’s so very lonely, you’re a hundred light years from home
Freezing red deserts turn to dark
Energy here in every part
It’s so very lonely, you’re six hundred light years from home
It’s so very lonely, you’re a thousand light years from home
It’s so very lonely, you’re a thousand light years from home
Bell flight fourteen you now can land
Seen you on Aldebaran, safe on the green desert sand
It’s so very lonely, you’re two thousand light years from home
It’s so very lonely, you’re two thousand light years from home

Spicks  and Specks

Bee Gees

Where is the sun
That shone on my head
The sun in my life
It is dead
It is dead
Where is the light
That would play
In my streets
And where are the friends
I could meet
I could meet
Where are the girls
I left far behind
The spicks and the specks
Of the girls on my mind
Where is the sun
That shone on my head
The sun in my life
It is dead
It is dead
Where are the girls
I left far behind
The spicks and the specks
Of the girls on my mind
Where are the girls
I left far behind
The spicks and the specks
Of the girls on my mind
Where is the girl I loved
All along
The girl that I loved
She’s gone
She’s gone
All of my life
I call yesterday
The spicks and the specks
Of my life ‘ve gone away
All of my life
I call yesterday
The spicks and the specks
Of my life ‘ve gone away
Everybody

Holiday

Bee Gees

Ooh you’re a holiday, such a holiday
Ooh you’re a holiday, such a holiday

It’s something I thinks worthwhile
If the puppet makes you smile
If not then you’re throwing stones
Throwing stones, throwing stones

Ooh it’s a funny game
Don’t believe that it’s all the same
Can’t think what I’ve just said
Put the soft pillow on my head

Millions of eyes can see
Yet why am I so blind
When the someone else is me
It’s unkind, it’s unkind

De, de de de de de
De de de de de de, de de
De, de de de de de
De de de de de de, de de

Ooh you’re a holiday, every day, such a holiday
Now it’s my turn to say, and I say you’re a holiday
It’s something I think’s worthwhile
If the puppet makes you smile
If not then you’re throwing stones
Throwing stones, throwing stones

De, de de de de de
De de de de de de, de de
De, de de de de de
De de de de de de
