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…

Can Tottenham Hotspur Catch Chelsea?

Can Tottenham Hotspur Catch Chelsea?

Not so long ago, Chelsea seemed to be running away with the Premier League title. The Blues were as many as ten points clear at the top of the table in March, and it was a foregone conclusion that they were going to win the title. Things have changed now. Defeats to Crystal Palace and Manchester United have reduced Chelsea’s lead at the top of the table to just four points, and Tottenham Hotspur are back in the race. Tottenham have…

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…

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…

Will Euro 2016 Help or Hinder Tottenham Hotspur?

Will Euro 2016 Help or Hinder Tottenham Hotspur?

While it may be difficult to keep in mind following the final day debacle at St James Park, Tottenham Hotspur did have an excellent 2015/16 Premier League campaign. Mauricio Pochettino was able to get the very best out of his players, and they arguably overachieved when you consider the resources available at clubs such as Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea, sides who all finished below Spurs in the table. While new signings were made by the Argentinian manager,…

Spurs’ True Chances of Success This Season

Spurs’ True Chances of Success This Season

Tottenham will be fighting on four fronts during their 2014/15 campaign with the Premier League, Europa League, League Cup and FA Cup all on the agenda for Mauricio Pochettino’s men. Daniel Levy appointed the Argentinian with a main objective of returning to the top four of the Premier League in mind. To me, that looks a very tall order as Tottenham’s last result against Liverpool clearly shows, they are still some way off the very best sides in the country….

Still a Long Way to go

Still a Long Way to go

Although Tottenham bossed possession during Sunday’s 3-0 defeat at the hands of Liverpool, the home side never really looked like they were going to get anything from the match. One shot on target against Liverpool’s eight tells the story and a goal from Raheem Sterling after eight minutes quickly killed the feel good factor generated from the win over QPR just seven days previous. Two goals better than last year you might say but results such as this are still…

Sherwood to Upset the Odds?

Sherwood to Upset the Odds?

The rumour mill went into overdrive yesterday prior to Tottenham’s match against Sunderland, with manager Tim Sherwood apparently having been told that his services would not be required beyond the end of this season. The same rumour mill falsely told us that he knocked out a member of his squad last Sunday, but this particular story did appear to have more legs. All the major media outlets were reporting similar things and going on what was said or not said…

December the Crucial Month

December the Crucial Month

Following two very disappointing Premier League defeats in succession, Tottenham were able to put up a much improved display against on Sunday against Manchester United. Although the away side bossed possession, Spurs took the lead twice and were arguably unlucky not to have taken all three points in front of a spirited White Hart Lane crowd. Andre Villas-Boas men created plenty and looked a much more potent attacking force than they have done in previous home fixtures this season. Kyle…
