Can Spurs Become True Title Contenders On Saturday?

Can Spurs Become True Title Contenders On Saturday?

I saw a stat on Twitter earlier which I quickly passed on to my WhatsApp group, which is full of Gooners, Chelsea and Millwall fans. Basically, they all hate Spurs. @BBCSport: Spurs have conceded the fewest of any team in Europe’s top five leagues so far this season. I was quickly shot down, ‘You’ve played Cardiff and Palace and a load of teams with made up names that aren’t even proper football clubs in the Europa League.’ While that all…

Spurs exodus continues as Parker leaves

Spurs exodus continues as Parker leaves

Andre Villas-Boas’ revamping of the Tottenham squad has continued after Scott Parker was allowed to join Fulham on a three-year deal. The 32-year-old former Charlton Athletic, Newcastle United, West Ham United and Chelsea midfielder has moved to Craven Cottage for an undisclosed transfer fee. Parker has won 18 caps for England and featured in more than 300 Premier League matches. He captained his country in a friendly international against Holland and started every group match at Euro 2012. In his…

Ferry Cross the Mersey

Spurs face Liverpool tonight in what has the potential to be a thrilling encounter at White Hart Lane. Spurs are coming off the back of a very impressive performance when beating West Ham on Sunday and should be full of confidence coming into this encounter. Liverpool should also come into the match in positive mood as they are now on a run of eight games unbeaten following a very slow start to the season. Andre Villas Boas has been under…

Sunday Bloody Sunday

Sunday Bloody Sunday

After a campaign of both joy and despair, it has come to this. Spurs are within touching distance of an automatic Champions League spot and although I would have been devastated by the prospect had you told me this is where would would end up back in January, it is only thanks to a resurgence in the last few games that we have any chance of playing against Europe’s elite next season. Following a run which saw Tottenham win just…

I might start supporting Fulham

I might start supporting Fulham

So that was a white lie, but it will hurt seeing Martin Jol at another Premiership side if today’s papers are to be believed. Maarten Cornelis Jol should never have lost his job as Tottenham manager and the way he was treated still gets my goat when I think back to it. Obviously it’s all water under the bridge now, and I wouldn’t swap Harry for anyone, but I was very disappointed when the Dutchman was replaced. His record since…

Liverpool

Liverpool

Probably the biggest game of this season as far as the board are concerned with the money that will be generated next but is it a match that is as crucial to Harry Redknapp? He has been quoted in the press as saying the Europa League could be a distraction and he’d prefer to concentrate on our league position next season. I have no doubt Redknapp will be doing his upmost to get a result at Anfield but I also…

Fulham are almost there…but not quite

Fulham are almost there…but not quite

I know today’s results weren’t ideal, but I think I would have settled for a point at Everton before the game. The real disappointment was the fact Villa’s woeful form continued as did Fulham’s excellent form at home. All credit to them, Fulham probably deserve a place in the Europa League next season but football tends not to work like that. A lot of neutrals would argue Spurs don’t deserve it, but I couldn’t care less! West Ham are one…
