Tottenham v Aston Villa Preview

Tottenham v Aston Villa Preview

Tottenham go into this home encounter against Aston Villa off the back of a slightly disappointing result in Greece against Panathinaikos. Their second Europa League game of the season ended all square at 1-1, but Spurs had taken the lead thanks to a headed goal from the returning Michael Dawson. The Premiership odds for the Villa clash sees Tottenham installed as the red hot 4/9 favourites with Paddy Power. The Irish bookmaker have Aston Villa at the 13/2 mark, while…

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…

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…

Raffers, he’s the biggest doubt, he’s got a bit of a hamstring, he did it playing for Holland. Surprised us that…

Is our season over?

Is our season over?

Five points behind Chelsea, six off Man City. We haven’t scored in our last three games, haven’t won in five. Since the 16th January, our strikers have only scored six goals between them. Worst of all, Tottenham are highly unlikely to be playing Champions League football next season. A heavy defeat in the Bernabeu on Tuesday night would really finish us off. Even the biggest optimist would struggle to see us winning the Champions League and I’m worried whether the…

West Brom won’t be a walkover

West Brom won’t be a walkover

The majority of football fans think West Brom are going to be back playing Championship football again and I’m in that majority but they have 12pts left to play for and while it’s still mathematically possible for them to stay up, I’m sure they will put up a hell of a fight. West Brom’s 3-0 victory over Sunderland last weekend was arguably their best performance of the season and will give them a lot of going into the game at…
