I have been a Spurs supporter since the days of Lineker and Gazza. I have had to endure many a mid table finish! I have had a season ticket for a number of years now and this is by far the best Spurs team that I have ever seen! Enjoying the ride this season!

Brilliant Bale at the Double | Comparison to Ronaldo at same age

It is not all that long ago that Gareth Bale had an unwanted record – he had never finished on the winning side in a Spurs shirt. If you were told that stat once existed now, you would never believe it. He is the driving force behind Spurs’ push for Champions League football next season and he was at his dazzling best once again at the weekend against Newcastle. His brace took him to 13 Premier League goals for the …

Brilliant Bale Destroys Villa | Player Stats Analysis

On the back of an 8-0 drubbing from Chelsea on the weekend before Christmas, Aston Villa’s youngsters can’t have been looking forward to the prospect of facing Tottenham’s Gareth Bale running at them. The Welshman was in scintillating form as Spurs ran riot, inflicting another heavy defeat on the midlands team. Bale seems to enjoy the festive period having played a starring role in the Christmas fixture against Norwich last season bagging a brace. This time he went one better …

Deadly Defoe at the Double | Premier League Striker Stats Comparison

On Saturday afternoon at Craven Cottage, a brace for Defoe took him to four goals in a week and his tally for the season up to 9. Aside from the goals, Defoe had a relatively quiet game, making just 14 passes in the entire 90 minutes. Defoe is a player who splits opinion amongst Spurs fans – on the one hand he is a player who scores regularly, on the other his involvement is minimal if he is not scoring …
Villas Boas displays adaptability – earning plaudits in defeat

Villas Boas displays adaptability – earning plaudits in defeat

Andre Villas Boas has taken a lot of stick from some Tottenham fans over recent weeks, despite the challenges he has faced in his short time at the helm at White Hart Lane. Some have questioned his ‘negative’ tactics and him not playing ‘the Tottenham way’.  Question marks have been placed on his team selection and how he has set the team out to play. He has been in a position where he is damned if he does, damned if …
A look at AVB after 10 games in charge at Spurs

A look at AVB after 10 games in charge at Spurs

White Hart Lane has been home to a poisonous atmosphere this season. Boos were heard at half time in the very first home game of the season, when Spurs were unable to take the lead against West Brom. These boos were heard again against Norwich, and were at their fiercest in the loss to Wigan last weekend. The atmosphere at White Hart Lane has gone steadily downhill over the past couple of seasons – ironic, since Tottenham fans have been …

The Dynamic Duo Driving Spurs Success | Stats Comparison

Totalling just two points from the opening three games of the season (with both points earned in disappointing home draws), the press seemed all too willing to put Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villa Boas under increasing scrutiny. Fleet Street favourite Harry Redknapp had been given the boot and replaced by AVB, and the press couldn’t wait for the Portuguese to fail. After the international break Spurs came back (much as they did last season) to go on a winning run, …

AVB Makes it a Game of Two Halves | Stats Analysis

Boos rang round White Hart Lane at half time on Sunday afternoon - a sound that has sadly become all too familiar in recent weeks. Tottenham had just been played off the park by a very lively QPR team that Spurs had made look like Barcelona. It was a worrying first 45 minutes. But for a couple of very good saves from Brad Friedel, the game could well have been beyond us at half time. There was no cohesion in …
