The Quarter Final Trail on New Turf

The Quarter Final Trail on New Turf

There has been much fuss made of the playing surface at Spotland Stadium in the run up to Rochdale’s FA Cup 5th Round clash with Tottenham Hotspur this weekend. Millwall had to suffer a torrid time on what was described as a beach by various pundits, and Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino was not happy with the prospect of his team playing under the same conditions. Rochdale were forced to make their third successive postponement of a League One game this…

Having left the famous White Hart Lane to temporarily ply their trade at the home of English football, Wembley Stadium, Spurs are still fighting towards the top of the Premier League table. There were many doubts from pundits and outsiders as to whether Tottenham Hotspur could put together a good run of form in their temporary new home before the season began. This was mainly due…

Career Changes of Footballers

Career Changes of Footballers

You may think your favourite footballer has achieved their greatest dreams stepping on the hallowed turf of your favourite club’s stadium. They’ve defied the odds to reach the peak and should be pretty happy with themselves. However your dreams and their dreams are probably not as similar as you’d think. Take Mickey Rourke for example, he was a young, devilishly handsome actor who had just starred in some massive movies and was adored by the finer sex the world over….

The Most Crucial Stage of the Season is Now

The Most Crucial Stage of the Season is Now

Tottenham Hotspur fans should have a very clear picture of exactly what their team can achieve this season come the end of January. Spurs play Manchester United at Wembley on the final day of that month, which is the last of five league games in January. Mauricio Pochettino’s side will then play Liverpool, Arsenal and Juventus in quick succession and it is vital that they go into those three games off the back of a successful start to 2018. Things…

How do Tottenham get to the next level?

How do Tottenham get to the next level?

The date: November 1st, 2017. The venue: Wembley. The Occasion: Tottenham Hotspur v Real Madrid in the Champions League group stages. The result: 3-1 to Spurs. In the aftermath of that game, you’d be hard-pressed to find many who would have bet on Spurs taking eight points from their next six Premier League games. It’s a sequence of results that has left them in sixth place with just 28 points, their title bid over before it ever got going. All…

Where are the Trophies?

Where are the Trophies?

You only need to look at some of the quotes coming out of the Arsenal camp ahead of their recent meeting with Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League, to realise the major problem still facing Mauricio Pochettino and his players. Former Gunners goalkeeper David Seaman said in the lead up to the match, “The form has shifted but not the power. The power comes through winning trophies and Tottenham haven’t done that.” Current Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech also chimed in…

Are Tottenham the Favourites for the North London Derby?

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur meet at the Emirates Stadium in the first North London Derby of the 2017-18 Premier League season this Saturday.

Harry Kane was back in the starting lineup for the first time since our 4-1 thrashing of Liverpool in October, having missed the EFL Cup loss to West Ham and the…

Tottenham Hotspur – A Winning Bet

Tottenham Hotspur – A Winning Bet

As Tottenham Hotspur supporters we know all too well that there are no guarantees in football. Despite being the best performing Premier League team over the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons, we somehow didn’t actually win anything! That said, it’s clear that under Mauricio Pochettino the club is heading in the right direction and success is surely around the corner. Just this Tuesday night we put in a brilliant display at the Bernabeu to draw 1-1 with Real Madrid, which shows…

Is the Ballon d’Or Kane’s for the Taking?

Is the Ballon d’Or Kane’s for the Taking?

If any more proof were needed as to exactly how far Harry Kane has come in recent seasons, the prolific Tottenham frontman has now been shortlisted for arguably the most prestigious award in world football, the Ballon d’Or. Having been in absolutely superb form for both club and country over the past six weeks, this will no doubt be another huge boost for Kane and while winning the Ballon d’Or is probably a little out of his reach, being mentioned…

Is Harry Kane Priceless?

Is Harry Kane Priceless?

While Talksport isn’t often my radio station of choice, I happened to be listening to the drive time show on the way home last night and Harry Kane was the topic of discussion. The masses were suggesting that Kane was likely to be on his way if a big offer came in for the two-time Golden Boot winner. Stand in host Danny Kelly was very much of the opposite opinion however and slapped a somewhat tongue in cheek price tag…
