Swanning Around

Swanning Around

Tottenham are in desperate need of a big result. Back to back defeats at the hands of Monaco and Chelsea have dealt a serious blow to Spurs’ season, and while there is still a long way to go, a return to form prior to the all-important Christmas period is crucial. The victory over Manchester City aside, Mauricio Pochettino’s men are yet to hit the heights of last term, and I feel as though the unbeaten tag Spurs had in the…

Leverlosing?

Tottenham return to Wembley this Wednesday evening for a crucial Champions League encounter with Bayer Leverkusen. The two sides fought out a 0-0 draw a fortnight ago in Germany, a match which was dominated for the most part by Bayer Leverkusen. It could be argued that Spurs were fortunate to come away with a point, but Mauricio Pochettino’s side defended well and still have the opportunity of qualifying for the latter stages of the competition. If Tottenham are going to…

Spurs Are on Their Way to Wembley….

….to play their first Champions League fixture since 2011.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men come into tonight’s clash with Monaco off the back of an impressive display away at Stoke this past weekend, a game where they ran out 4-0…

In a World Full of City’s and United’s, There’s Only One Hotspur

In a World Full of City’s and United’s, There’s Only One Hotspur

A guest post from Mark Ede, life-long Spurs fan and writer of The Focus of my Attention It was summer 1990, when I was seven years old, when I first fell in love. I fell in love with a game. I fell in love with football. There were two players in particular who held my affection that summer. Star striker Gary Lineker and the man the rest of the nation fell in love with – the supremely talented – Paul…

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

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…
