The players that should not be sold

The players that should not be sold

It looks likely that a number of the current Tottenham squad will be allowed to leave the club at the end of the season. The likes of Gilberto, Rocha, and Boateng obviously have no future under Harry Redknapp. Some high profile players including Bentley, Zokora and Pavlyuchenko will also probably be available if the right sort of offers come in. Are there any players on their way out that we should be keeping hold of? I’ve always been a fan…

Miss Spur is In The Know: Matt Upson and more..

Miss Spur is In The Know: Matt Upson and more..

Latest rumours from the Lane… Matt Upson is a player Harry Redknapp is very keen on. He had an enquiry rebuffed in January but will be going back with a further approach in the summer. Although the Tottenham defence is solid, Redknapp believes he still needs another top class centre half especially if his side make it into Europe next season. Carlo Cudicini is unhappy with his current position at the club and had a recent training ground bust up…

Typical Spurs or typical Utd cheating?

Typical Spurs or typical Utd cheating?

I really thought the game was over at 2-0 yesterday but fom history I should have known differently. Fair enough, Utd looked out of sorts first half but Spurs played exactly the way I was hoping for at Old Trafford. They weren’t scared to attack Utd which I believe is the best way to play them. Too many team go there, sit back and get beat one or two nil. A lot of people will be saying typical Spurs, not…

It’s time to beat Man Utd

It’s time to beat Man Utd

I, like many other Spurs fans, am sick of our woeful record against Manchester United. I’ve lost count of the amount of times we have outplayed them and still got beat. The two games that stick in my throat the most are probably the same as the rest of you. Firstly when we were 3-0 up at half time at the Lane only to capitulate in the 2nd half, then the win that never was at Old Trafford under Martin…

17 from Pompey for Harry to plunder

17 from Pompey for Harry to plunder

Portsmouth have 17 players out of contract in the summer and I’m sure Harry must be monitoring at least a couple of them. Here are the biggest names that look to be on their way out, most of them are past their best or just plain useless but we know Harry loves to take a punt on a bargain. Nwankwo Kanu – The guy’s got a hole in his heart, is injury prone and probably demands a much higher wage…

Too much for the Toon Army

Too much for the Toon Army

It was more hard work than it needed to be, but victory over Newcastle has really cemented Tottenham’s position and kept us on course for 7th place. Darren Bent’s slightly scrappy goal was the difference as far as the score line was concerned, but there was a definite gulf in quality and Spurs should have killed the game off in the first half. I’m not complaining though, I’d be happy to win 1-0 every week and it’s a very healthy…

Sending Newcastle and Shearer to the Championship

Sending Newcastle and Shearer to the Championship

Obafemi Martins’ pile driver of a goal at the Lane a couple of seasons back still haunts me. I thought we would win that game comfortably but the inconsistent African came up with some magic to ruin that Sunday for me. I can see this Sunday being a different story. I have a lot of time for Newcastle, especially their fans but I really fear for their Premiership status this season. The arrival of their messiah Alan Shearer is a…

Miss Spur is In The Know

Miss Spur is In The Know

Hi guys, Mabbs has been pestering me to post on his blog for ages now and I have finally given in. My name is Miss Spur and lets just say I work closely with the club. I was passing on bits of news last year, some good and some bad but all genuinely what had been passed onto myself. Please don’t take it all as gospel. Anyway, here’s a couple of recent stories doing the rounds. The manager wants his…

Tottenham Player of the Season

Tottenham Player of the Season

I did something similar on the Goons over at North London Divide last night and I thought it would be interesting to see who people thought was our player of the season. I don’t want to dwell on this too much but Arsenal are in a position where they can still win a trophy this season so their player of the season could change if someone drives them to FA Cup or Champions league glory (unlikely I know), but our…

Pipe down West Ham

Pipe down West Ham

The amount of abuse and racism on here on the back of my last post was quite frankly unreal. Me suggesting Spurs would have too much for West Ham at the Lane was met with a barrage of comments, mainly from very brave anonymous Hammers. Tottenham should have definitely had one penalty, possibly three. We dominated the game throughout and the deadlock was finally broken by substitute Roman Pavlyuchenko within nine minutes of coming on. The win puts up into…
