Sony Ericsson W995 Giveaway

Sony Ericsson W995 Giveaway

I have a FIFA branded SE W995 handset worth £500 courtesy of Sony Ericsson. As you know, the FIFA World Cup is next year in South Africa and Sony Ericsson is one of the main sponsors of this epic football event. A Willy Wonker style Golden Ticket will be hidden in the box of one of SE’s new FIFA branded handsets. The person who finds the GT will win an all expenses paid trip to SA and tickets to their…

Can a club like Spurs accommodate four top strikers?

Can a club like Spurs accommodate four top strikers?

With the arrival of Peter Crouch, Tottenham now have four top strikers at what should be the peak of their football careers. In this day and age, Premiership clubs need to have a depth of talent in all areas of their squads but this means some players are likely to miss out. If all our strikers can keep themselves fit for the majority of the season, how will Harry keep them happy? The likely pairing for the start of the…

The Wembley Cup was a joke

The Wembley Cup was a joke

I went to see Spurs take on the mighty Barcelona on Friday night and paid £60 for the privilege. In reality, the ticket was probably worth no more than 60p. After being forced to queue for nearly an hour to collect the tickets, we just about made it into the stadium as the game was kicking off. Looking at the Barca players for familiar faces, I couldn’t really see any. I thought it was just my ropey eyes at first….

Adebayor is doing the right thing

Adebayor is doing the right thing

I’ll start by saying I’m not Emmanuel Adebayor’s biggest fan. He’s arrogant and while very talented at times, is lazy and inconsistent in equal measures. That said, I think he’s made the right move leaving Arsenal for Manchester City. I know the majority of fans think it’s just about the money but I don’t believe that to be the case. The players Man City have signed thus far look mightily impressive and by all accounts, they are just getting warmed…

If you could sign one player, who would it be?

If you could sign one player, who would it be?

It’s half way through July now and we are yet to see any fresh faces at the Lane. I really thought Harry would have brought in one or two players before next weeks Wembley Cup but it’s not looking very likely at the moment. The thought of Patrick Vieira makes me very sad. I thought Arsenal did the right thing cashing in on him in 2005. A Patrick Vieira with another 4 years and a number of injuries on the…

Becks or some young blood?

Becks or some young blood?

There have been noises over the last few days about David Beckham becoming a Spurs player. I’d be surprised if the club managed to pull this off but after the money we got for Zokora, anything is possible! Personally, I’d see this as a great move and massive step forward for Tottenham. David Beckham can still play to a decent standard, his marketing value is second to none and just his presence at the club would likely give everyone a…

A great bit of business

A great bit of business

It looks like we’ve managed to get around £8m out of Sevilla for Didier Zokora. As much as I liked the guy, this has to be one of the best pieces of business I’ve seen Spurs pull off. He’s been with us 3 years and was supposedly going to fill the void left by Michael Carrick but that just never happened. No matter how much of a nice guy he is, his contribution on the pitch has been nothing more…

Absolute Disaster

Absolute Disaster

If Luis Figo has seriously been approached, things are a lot worse than I ever imagined. Bear in mind I was imagining quite bad things when Jermaine Pennant’s name was being mentioned without a comedy effect chuckle in an I almost had you kind of way. Figo looks like an old man and has been playing like one for the last couple of years. He scored 2 goals for Inter in 38 starts and didn’t do a lot else by…

The players up for sale

The players up for sale

As there is still a distinct lack of solid activity on the transfer front, and with the rumours getting more and more desperate, I thought it might be a good chance to analyse those players that Spurs would probably be happy to offload this summer. We are still quite heavy on the Team Comolli front but I’m slightly concerned that we won’t even be able to give a couple of those superstars away. Definite Departures Kevin-Prince Boateng – He’s the…

Reality Check

Reality Check

For me, this is a great time of year to be a Spurs fan. I love all the stories about who we are going to sign that never come to fruition but year on year people still fall for the same old bullshit. If you think of all the big names we have been linked with in the last five years or so, how many have we actually signed? Samuel Eto’o, Roque Santa Cruz and Arjen Robben are just some…
