Are Tottenham the Favourites for the North London Derby?

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. Tottenham made an excellent start to the month with a convincing 3-1 thrashing of defending champions Real Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday 1 November. 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…

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…

Swanning Around

Swanning Around

Tottenham are in desperate need of a big result. Back to back defeats at the hands of Monaco and Chelsea have dealt a serious blow to Spurs’ season, and while there is still a long way to go, a return to form prior to the all-important Christmas period is crucial. The victory over Manchester City aside, Mauricio Pochettino’s men are yet to hit the heights of last term, and I feel as though the unbeaten tag Spurs had in the…

Leverlosing?

Tottenham return to Wembley this Wednesday evening for a crucial Champions League encounter with Bayer Leverkusen. The two sides fought out a 0-0 draw a fortnight ago in Germany, a match which was dominated for the most part by Bayer Leverkusen. It could be argued that Spurs were fortunate to come away with a point, but Mauricio Pochettino’s side defended well and still have the opportunity of qualifying for the latter stages of the competition. If Tottenham are going to…

Spurs Are on Their Way to Wembley….

Spurs Are on Their Way to Wembley….

….to play their first Champions League fixture since 2011. Tottenham’s third place finish in the Premier League last season meant the end of Thursday night football for the time being at least, and Spurs will now be in action on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, taking part in Europe’s elite football competition. Mauricio Pochettino’s men come into tonight’s clash with Monaco off the back of an impressive display away at Stoke this past weekend, a game where they ran out 4-0…

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,…

A Disappointing Draw

A Disappointing Draw

Although dominating the ninety minutes of play, Tottenham were unable to come away from the Stadium of Light with all three points. I felt it was important for us not to lose this game on the back of the Liverpool result but after being in front twice, it’s a real shame we were unable to hang on for the win. These are definitely the type of match that Spurs need to be winning if a slightly ambitious push for the…
