Tottenham can start their season Monday night

Tottenham can start their season Monday night

Does anyone else hate International games as much as me? I can’t stand all these breaks to watch our useless national team embarrass us. At least the Croatia game holds a bit more interest for the Tottenham fan but I’d still rather our players were with our manager working towards Monday’s game against Aston Villa. Everyone can remember the 4-4 thriller we had with them last year, I wouldn’t rule out more of the same. They did have a 0-0…

The top 5 WORST Spurs players of all time

The top 5 WORST Spurs players of all time

Like yesterday, these are just the players from my time supporting Spurs. I’m sure there are some shockers I’ve omitted from further back! 5. Dean Austin and Justin Edinburgh – I just couldn’t split them! For years we were stuck with these two at full back, it amazes me how many games the pair of them played. Every season I lived in hope they would be replaced but they just seemed to hang around forever! 4. Jose Dominguez – I…

The top 5 Spurs players of all time

The top 5 Spurs players of all time

That title is possibly a bit misleading because I’m not quite old enough to cover since 1882 but I’ll just go as far back as my memory will take me! I’ll be looking at about the last 20 years or so. 5. Teddy Sheringham – Ok, I know whenever he signs for a new club it has always been his lifelong dream to go there but you can’t argue with the player Teddy was for Tottenham. He did well in…

Ramos gives me a quick answer

Ramos gives me a quick answer

I was questioning yesterday whether Juande Ramos was happy with the performance of the Spurs hierarchy in the transfer market. Well it seems like he is judging by his interview with tottenhamhotspur.com “I have little doubt that we have a squad of greater overall quality now than when I began at this club a year ago,” Ramos said. “And by the end of the season our results will have proved this to be the case. “I know there is much…

Timorous Tottenham’s Transfer Transactions

Timorous Tottenham’s Transfer Transactions

After a couple of days to reflect on our actions in the transfer market since the start of the summer until the close of the transfer window, the question has to be asked; Were the powers that be just too timid in their actions? We didn’t want to sell Robbie Keane, we sold Robbie Keane. We didn’t want to sell Dimitar Berbatov, we sold Dimitar Berbatov. We wanted to sign Andrei Arshavin, we signed Fraizer Campbell. I can see a…

Hey, Newcastle, leave our Gus alone!

Hey, Newcastle, leave our Gus alone!

Gus Poyet was cut from 20/1 to 6/4 to become the next Newcastle United manager yesterday on the back of the rumours concerning Kevin Keegan having left the club. The consensus today is that Keegan hasn’t gone anywhere yet but it doesn’t look like he’ll be sticking around for long. We had this a while back when Gus was linked with Manchester Utd when they lost their assistant Carlos Queiroz to the Portuguese national side. I realise the top job…

Have Manchester City put Tottenham out of the top 4 picture?

Have Manchester City put Tottenham out of the top 4 picture?

There was an interesting comment posted on this blog earlier; ‘top 4 and cl football is now near impossible by the way….now that the top 4 has become the top 5’. The thought crossed my mind yesterday when I heard City were being bought out but it stopped crossing and just sat bang in my head once Berbatov and Robinho came into the picture. It’s amazing how quickly things change in football. A couple of weeks ago when the Corluka…

Fraizer Campbell, good addition?

Fraizer Campbell, good addition?

What do we think? I haven’t see much of him if I’m honest, watching Hull wasn’t high on my agenda last season. I’ve had a look through some highlights and he has scored a number of good goals. I know he started for Utd against Newcastle and was involved in their pre season games so Ferguson must have rated him. It’s only a loan deal for this season but I’d imagine that was because of everything being done last minute…

City agree fee for Berbatov

City agree fee for Berbatov

The biggest shock of the day comes in the shape of Berbatov going to Manchester City?! I just don’t get it at all, he must be really desperate if he ends up there. They certainly won’t be in the Champions League anytime soon. I know things look more secure than they did under Shinawatra if the buy out actually goes through but it would still be a risky move for Berba. Obviously it’s not a done deal yet, he will…

Transfer Latest

So Corluka’s finally done, he will be excellent cover for Ledley, may even play right back until Hutton is fit but I’ll miss Zakora if he does. Others still in the pipeline are; Veloso – He has to be the no.1 target, certainly a player I would love to see in a Spurs shirt. Arshavin – Apparently not dead yet, not sure if I want us spending £20m or so on this guy but let’s see what happens. Milito –…
