What We Learned From Juventus

What We Learned From Juventus

So Tottenham may have lost their opening game in the ICC Melbourne 2016, but I don’t feel that the fourth pre season friendly of the summer was a complete disaster. Let’s look at the important points from this interesting clash. This was basically a second string squad Mauricio Pochettino took the decision to give his players who featured at Euro 2016 a further rest, and not make them travel for this tournament in Australia. Bar new signings Wanyama and Janssen,…

Make money on Spurs using Close Bet

Make money on Spurs using Close Bet

As we are all well aware, Tottenham games can be extremely volatile. Although we tend to come from behind under Andre Villas Boas, there have also been instances during this campaign when Spurs have thrown a lead away. As a fan, this is frustrating enough, but from a betting perspective, it can also be very costly indeed. Thanks to the new Close Bet option from bet365, punters can ensure that once they are in a winning position, a profit can…

Oh Dear

Oh Dear

I didn’t expect us to get anything at the Etihad yesterday. I would have been reasonably satisfied with a spirited one or two nil defeat but after thirty seconds, the writing was very much on the wall. A disastrous clearance from the usually reliable Hugo Lloris gave Jesus Navas an opportunity which he converted via a sublime chip. The most important thing for any team going to Manchester City is to not concede an early goal because a rout is…

How far can this team go?

How far can this team go?

Tottenham’s new look side showed exactly what they are capable of this past Saturday with a comprehensive 2-0 victory over a good Norwich City team. A Gylfi Sigurdsson brace was enough to dispatch Chris Houghton’s side and it was Spurs who were firmly in control over the ninety minutes. The home team had 68% of the possession and 7 shots on target to Norwich’s 1. On a day when Gareth Bale was making his debut for Real Madrid, an impressive…

Tottenham Kit Launch Report

Tottenham Kit Launch Report

I was lucky enough to be invited to the Spurs kit launch this past Monday which took place at the trendy Village Underground in Shoreditch. It was an incredible day weather-wise and although the guy I saw as soon as I stepped off the over ground wearing bright red chino shorts with a blazer made me realise I was nowhere near cool enough for EC2, I still enjoyed my lemon green tea with lychees on the roof in the sun….

Not the Spurs of Old

Not the Spurs of Old

I thought that was going to be the most painful result of the season thus far. To hammer the league leaders like that and come away with nothing from the game would have been extremely hard to take. While the first half was a bit more even, Spurs absolutely dominated Sir Alex Ferguson’s men in the second and although it looked as if it would be another setback for Tottenham in their bid to become one of the established big…

The Slightly Later Than Scheduled Festive Reflection

The Slightly Later Than Scheduled Festive Reflection

So, it feels pretty good to be a Spurs fan at the moment right?! Six points off City with a game in hand and possibly even more satisfying, six points in front of Arsenal with that same game in hand. I’m looking forward to the FA Cup this weekend and I’m hoping we will make short work of Cheltenham even if most of the first eleven are given what would be a well overdue rest. I do have a soft…

The Day I Met Clive Allen and the Fighting Cocks

The Day I Met Clive Allen and the Fighting Cocks

So, this past Sunday I was invited along to Dagenham and Redbridge’s Victoria Ground to interview Spurs coach Clive Allen. Clive was taking part in an ‘England Legends’ match against a supposed Sunday League side, Ivory FC. The Legends were made up of a number of ex professionals, some who had played a lot more games for England than others, but the main thing they had in common was that they all looked quite old. Ricky, one of the members…

Is the honeymoon period officially over?

Is the honeymoon period officially over?

Harry can’t do a lot wrong as far as most Spurs supporters I speak to are concerned. He’s improved the squad, team morale and our league position massively since he took over. Almost 14 months ago, Tottenham looked doomed. Since then, Redknapp has been considered a hero amongst the Spurs faithful. Saturday was the first time I’ve heard more than a handful of people questioning his credentials. The defeat to Stoke was one of those days, getting turned over by…

Do the positives outweigh the negatives?

Do the positives outweigh the negatives?

I was hopeful Spurs would managed at least a win and a draw from our three away games on the spin but as it turns out, I’m reasonably satisfied with two more league points. The only disappointing part is we should have got all six! As much time as I have for Everton, our class should have been enough to win yesterday’s game. They were missing a number of players and also had to travel abroad during the week. While…
