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…

Bale to Real claims in Spanish Newspaper Marca

Bale to Real claims in Spanish Newspaper Marca

It may not be the most reliable source of information in the world, but Spanish newspaper Marca are claiming that Gareth Bale is on the brink of agreeing a six deal with La Liga giants Real Madrid. According to Marca, Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett has met with senior officials at Madrid and worked out a lucrative long term contract for his prize asset. Also mentioned in the article is the fact that Barnett told Real president Florentino Perez that Bale…

Have the PFA Awards Sealed Gareth Bale’s Exit?

Have the PFA Awards Sealed Gareth Bale’s Exit?

Gareth Bale achieved an amazing PFA double last night when landing both the Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year awards. He becomes only the third player to win both accolades in the same season, and the first since Christiano Ronaldo in 2007. With Spurs’ chances of playing Champions League football next season still hanging in the balance, will the Welsh wonder now be on his way out of White Hart Lane? Not since Ronaldo at Manchester…

Is the Europa League actually a good thing for Spurs?

Is the Europa League actually a good thing for Spurs?

I’ve always felt the Europa League is a bit of a nonsense competition. Having to fly out to various distant parts of Europe to play in the cold on a Thursday night must have a negative effect on Premier League results. The taste of Champions League action probably hasn’t helped and neither did the fact we finished fourth last season only to be cruelly denied another tilt at that elite contest. Seeing Real Madrid and Manchester City play out that…

Emmanuel Adebayor could be Tottenham Bound

Emmanuel Adebayor could be Tottenham Bound

He is talented but hugely unlikeable and not just because of his stint at Arsenal. I couldn’t understand a word that came out his mouth during the World Cup when he was helping diversify the BBC’s panel of pundits. He puts in 110% for a few games a season but is largely lazy. I think that pretty much sums up Emmanuel Adebayor. While I might sound a bit negative about the current Manchester City misfit, I would also say that…

Will Joe Cole tip the balance?

Will Joe Cole tip the balance?

A few days ago, I wrote an article discussing the online betting for next season’s Premier League title. I found it puzzling that Liverpool were a significantly shorter price than Tottenham going on last season’s form, coupled with the uncertainty surrounding the future of their star players. Gerrard was to be joining Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid and Torres was also allegedly keen to move, that is if anyone is brave enough to risk millions of pounds on a player…

Gary Mabbutt – A True Legend

Gary Mabbutt – A True Legend

Gary Mabbutt is my favourite Spurs player of all time. His work ethic and consistency was second to none during his playing years as was the example he set as club captain. By chance I stumbled across this article about the role he has played in South Africa’s successful bid to host the 2010 World Cup. 2010’s Unlikely Star By all accounts he was key in South Africa’s achievement. He is married to a South African but the place was…

Do Spurs need this Ruud boy?

Do Spurs need this Ruud boy?

There is no question about it, Ruud van Nistelrooy has been one of the best strikers in the world over the last decade. On the form he showed at PSV, Man Utd and even Real Madrid, he’d be a superb acquisition for Tottenham. The problem is that he’s fast approaching 33 years old and hasn’t played any football for a good nine months following a serious knee injury. Ruud has had more than his fair share of injuries over the…

David Bentley and Real Madrid

David Bentley and Real Madrid

The British press are amazing. According to the Daily Star, Ramos is going to sign both Aaron Lennon and David Bentley! According to most of the rumours I heard, Bentley was one of the main reasons Ramos got the boot. Not only because of his awful performances on the pitch under Ramos, but also for displays of dissent towards the manager in the dressing room. It was him kicking off when he heard he was being left on the bench…

Wendy Ramos, you’re not as stupid as you look!

Wendy Ramos, you’re not as stupid as you look!

I felt a little sorry for Juande after his sacking from Tottenham, I feel a little less sorry for him after today, he’s been appointed manager of Real Madrid, in case you didn’t know! “I would like to thank the board for their confidence – I face this job with excitement. It’s everybody’s dream,” he stated. “I hope I don’t let anyone down and that I achieve the successes that this club has set for this season. “In most of…
