Are The Odds Stacked Against Us?

Are The Odds Stacked Against Us?

The 2016/17 Premier League season gets underway in just three days time, and there are some very interesting prices available on a variety of markets involving Tottenham Hotspur over the course of the upcoming season. Although Spurs were involved in the title race for the bulk of last term and ultimately finished in third place in the Premier League, the bookies only rate Tottenham as the joint 5th favourites for the upcoming EPL crown. With Arsenal having snatched 2nd spot…

The Inexperience of Youth

The Inexperience of Youth

Ask the majority of Tottenham Hotspur fans prior to the start of last season, and they would have no doubt bitten your hand off for a 3rd place finish in the Premier League. Unfortunately, Spurs capitulated at the very end of the campaign, ultimately finishing a point behind bitter foes Arsenal. The rivalry between the two clubs is such that ending up below the Gunners will have hurt some of the Tottenham faithful more than missing out on the title…

Mauricio’s Final Signing of the Summer Transfer Window

As is always the case at this time of year, Tottenham Hotspur are being linked with a number of players as the build up to the new Premier League season begins in earnest. Just the two new faces have come into the club thus far this summer, but both are high profile and definitely improve Mauricio Pochettino’s already healthy squad. Marseille’s Georges-Kevin Nkoudou is set to bring that number up to three in the coming days, and he also appears…

What We Learned From Juventus

What We Learned From Juventus

So Tottenham may have lost their opening game in the ICC Melbourne 2016, but I don’t feel that the fourth pre season friendly of the summer was a complete disaster. Let’s look at the important points from this interesting clash. This was basically a second string squad Mauricio Pochettino took the decision to give his players who featured at Euro 2016 a further rest, and not make them travel for this tournament in Australia. Bar new signings Wanyama and Janssen,…

Is the Premier League Title There for the Taking?

Is the Premier League Title There for the Taking?

It certainly was last season, and Claudio Ranieri’s Leicester City took full advantage. For me, teams in the English top flight have forgotten the art of defending over the past few years, and the standard has definitely slipped. Although Manchester City made it to the semi final stages of the 2015/16 Champions League, the performances of English sides as a whole was very disappointing, and the previous year was even worse. This certainly supports the argument that top level English…

My Cousin Vinny

My Cousin Vinny

Although Tottenham’s pursuit of Vincent Janssen has been somewhat delayed thank to so-called ‘fan’ Billy Beane, it now appears that the club are close to securing the signature of the 22 year old striker. Spurs originally offered AZ Alkmaar £15m for the player’s services, but AZ were told by by Moneyball creator Billy Beane that they should hold out for at least £16.5m based on his statistical analysis of Janssen. Beane used his Moneyball technique in baseball to great effect,…

Spurs go to Iceland?

Spurs go to Iceland?

Rumours have been circulating this week regarding Iceland defender Ragnar Sigurdsson’s services being wanted by both Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City. Sigurdsson was superb during Iceland’s 2-1 victory over England in the last sixteen of the 2016 European Championship this past Monday night, and the player’s performances throughout the tournament have caught the attention of a number of high profile clubs. Sigurdsson is currently plying his trade in Russia with Premier League side Krasnodar whom he joined in 2014 on…

Martin Jol is Kind of a Big Deal in Egypt

Martin Jol is Kind of a Big Deal in Egypt

He was a popular figure during the majority of his time in charge of Tottenham Hotspur, and Martin Jol has finally won a domestic title, almost nine years after his acrimonious departure from White Hart Lane. Jol joined the Cairo-based side Al Ahly in February of this year, and the Dutchman has done a fantastic job during his four month tenure. Al Ahly captured the Egyptian Premier League title this weekend following a 2-1 victory over rivals Al Ismaily in…

Who is Antonio Sanabria?

Who is Antonio Sanabria?

Spurs have been strongly linked with Paraguayan striker Antonio Sanabria today, but the former Barcelona man is hardly what you would call a household name. Having been a part of Barca’s youth set up since 2009, Sanabria was unable to make the breakthrough into the first team, and ultimately signed for Italian side Sassuolo in January 2014. It would later come to light that the player would be moving to Roma come July, as Roma had already reached their quota…
