Ian welcomes Casper, Simeon, Rikki, Peter, and Bob back to the YE1 fold for an international break assessment of Tottenham's season so far, as Jose Mourinho's Spurs side continue to score for fun.
Part two of this extended chat will land as a seperate podcast in the coming days. COYS!
After Sunday's slow start to the 2020/21 Premier League campaign, our crew of five Spurs-supporting pundits, aged between 12 and 63, plot how José Mourinho might achieve success this season, as the Europa Conference League (a.k.a. Europa League 2), the new standard for mediocrity, launches next season.
Portuguese football expert Aaron Barton, founder of Próxima Jornada, gives Spurs fans fresh hope that loanee Gedson Fernandes may begin to find his feat at White Hart Lane next season, and really show what he can do.
Richard Savva chats to YE1 about his show, A Spursy Podcast, which divides opinion on Twitter in particular due to "staunch" views regarding the Tottenham Hotspur board, as well as simply having the word "Spursy" in his title.
That before he, Ian, Sim, and Peter reflect on those final nine Premier League fixtures, which saw us secure European football for next season.

talkSPORT presenter Paul Hawksbee is the guest for the last of our season review series, and joins Ian, Sim, and Peter in recalling a vintage campaign of "heroic [Spurs] failure".
The 1986/87 team, managed by David Pleat, is widely regarded as one of the best White Hart Lane has seen since the great Bill Nicholson's era, but was sadly unable to pair some scintillating football and a historic 49-goal haul from striker Clive Allen with neither a league title nor one of the domestic cups, all of which we were in the running for.
