Spurs go to Iceland?

Spurs go to Iceland?

Rumours have been circulating this week regarding Iceland defender Ragnar Sigurdsson’s services being wanted by both Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City. Sigurdsson was superb during Iceland’s 2-1 victory over England in the last sixteen of the 2016 European Championship this past Monday night, and the player’s performances throughout the tournament have caught the attention of a number of high profile clubs. Sigurdsson is currently plying his trade in Russia with Premier League side Krasnodar whom he joined in 2014 on…

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…

Spurs striking options – who could make a difference?

Spurs striking options – who could make a difference?

Tottenham invested heavily over the summer as they tried to fill the void left by Gareth Bale, and while they have filled his place in midfield they are seriously missing his goal scoring exploits. Although new signing Roberto Soldado has been more than promising, the side do at times look short of a striker.We’ve taken a look at some of the strikers Spurs may look towards in the coming transfer windows, just to whet the appetite of any football transfer…

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…

Andre Villas-Boas’ revamping of the Tottenham squad has continued after Scott Parker was allowed to join Fulham on a three-year deal.

He captained his country in a friendly international against Holland and started every group match at Euro 2012. In his…

Tottenham v Southampton Preview

Tottenham v Southampton Preview

One of the biggest games in Tottenham’s season this Saturday as Southampton visit White Hart Lane. With the Saints now looking safe from relegation, all the pressure is one the home side to secure the three points and make the most of their game in hand over Arsenal. The Gunners could only manage a draw against Manchester United this past Sunday and although that would have been a good result in normal circumstances, neither side can afford to be dropping…

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…

George Graham Should Stick to the Horses

George Graham Should Stick to the Horses

Former Tottenham and Arsenal boss George Graham is apparently a huge horse racing fan and perhaps he should stick to trying to predict the finishing order of the 2013 Kentucky Derby horses rather than voicing his unwanted opinion on Spurs in the press as he has been recently. Graham believes that both Chelsea and Arsenal will finish above Tottenham this season, meaning that we will once again miss out on Champions League football by the narrowest of margins. “Tottenham will…

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…
