Hueng-Min Son is the answer

Hueng-Min Son is the answer

A month ago, I wrote a piece assessing Hueng-min Son's failure to cement a starting role at Tottenham this season. Despite emphasising the Korean's obvious qualities, I argued that his impact, thus far, had been somewhat inconsistent. Since then, Spurs have suffered a dip in form, briefly slumping to seventh in the league, before a comprehensive win against Stoke stopped the bleeding. Whilst some players have misfired during a tough period for the club, Sonny has stepped-up and proved his worth. In Spurs' last six games …
Tottenham's Premier League Season So Far

Tottenham's Premier League Season So Far

After 11 Premier League games, Tottenham sit 3rd in the table, behind Manchester United on goal difference and in front of Chelsea by a single point. With the International Break ensuing and a vital North London Derby on the horizon, now seems a suitable time to analyse Spurs' start to the 2017/18 Premier League season. The stats behind the start Spurs have accumulated 23 points so far, comprised of seven wins, two draws and two losses. In that time they've scored 20 league goals, equalling an average of …
Son Hueng-min: A second-string star

Son Hueng-min: A second-string star

Tottenham's recent dismantling of Liverpool and Real Madrid at Wembley has seen their temporary ground begin to feel a little bit more like home. Yet a dire first-half display against Crystal Palace on Sunday left some suspecting that another Wembley slip-up was impending. But midway through the second-half, Hueng-min Son stepped up to stroke in a fine curling effort and score a crucial winner for Spurs. It was also the goal which made Sonny the highest-scoring Korean to grace the Premier League, surpassing notorious 'big-game player' and Arsenal slayer, Park Ji-sung. In truth, Son shares many similarities with his Korean …
Wayne Rooney Is Not The Answer For Everton

Wayne Rooney Is Not The Answer For Everton

Everton face Arsenal in the Premier League this weekend, nearly 15 years to the day since a wonder-strike from a teenage Wayne Rooney earned the Toffees a 2-1 win over the then league holders. All these years later, Rooney finds himself back at his boyhood club ahead of another clash with Arsène Wenger. Now 31, Rooney's dazzling career has been on a downturn for some time and a move away from Manchester United was inevitable. With Everton goal-machine Romelu Lukaku going in the opposite direction, United off-loaded …
The Undervalued Role Of Fernandinho At Manchester City

The Undervalued Role Of Fernandinho At Manchester City

Manchester City face Stoke City at the Etihad Stadium this Saturday, looking for their sixth-straight Premier League win. Consecutive thrashings of Liverpool, Watford and Crystal Palace were followed by their biggest statement of intent so far; a dominant 1-0 victory over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Pep Guardiola has no shortage of stars at his disposal and his attacking players have rightly garnered much attention in recent weeks.  Yet, sitting just behind this abundance of flair is Fernandinho, probably the first name on Guardiola's team-sheet every week. Instant Impact …
Will Danny Rose reclaim his place at Tottenham?

Will Danny Rose reclaim his place at Tottenham?

Ben Davies has been in outstanding form for Tottenham in recent weeks as Mauricio Pochettino's side went unbeaten in September. The Welsh full-back has appeared in all but one of Spurs' Premier League games this season. However, with Danny Rose reportedly reaching full fitness, just in time for Tottenham's trip to the Bernabeu on October 17th, could the Welshman's place be under threat? Davies signed for the Tottenham in June 2014 but was left frustrated by a lack of opportunities. Through no fault of his own, Davies …
