Previewing Tottenham's Upcoming 2017/18 Season

Previewing Tottenham's Upcoming 2017/18 Season

Tottenham have been excellent for the last two seasons and have been extremely unlucky not to have a trophy to show for their efforts. Mauricio Pochettino has done a tremendous job in North London and showed that he can manage at the highest level, but like the team, he needs to lift a trophy to cement his reputation as a world class manager. During the 2015/16 season, Spurs finished 3rd and they went one better during the last campaign. If …
Analysis of Transfers from European Leagues to Premier League - 1: Eredivisie

Analysis of Transfers from European Leagues to Premier League - 1: Eredivisie

When I was writing about Davy Klaassen’s transfer to Everton from Ajax, someone suggested that I should also see whether his transfer is going to be a hit like Suarez or a flop like Janssen.  I thought it was a good idea and decided to look at the transfers in detail. While predicting whether Klaassen will be a Suarez or a Janssen is not possible for me but we can look at the trends and characteristics of transfers from different …
Fulham v Tottenham Hotspur Preview | FA Cup 5th Round

Fulham v Tottenham Hotspur Preview | FA Cup 5th Round

It's the FA Cup weekend and this Sunday will see two London rivals face each other in glamorous West London at Craven Cottage. For Fulham, once a staple fixture in the Premier League, this is a genuine opportunity to get one over one of their neighbours in Tottenham Hotspur at home after a convincing 4-1 win against Hull City in the previous round. With the visitors struggling with poor form and injuries to key men, Slavisa Jokanovic's Championship side, having won …
Versatile Tottenham: the Best Defensive Unit in the Premier League

Versatile Tottenham: the Best Defensive Unit in the Premier League

Tottenham's versatility in defence has made them the most formidable unit in the Premier League and they will prove that in Jan Vertonghen's absence over the next two months. Spurs dealt with Toby Alderweireld's injury earlier this season and history suggests they will be able to cope with Vertonghen's too. Granted, the team will be weaker without the presence of the centre-back - like any team in the Premier League would be - but Tottenham have enough options to cope …
Are Tottenham serious challengers for the league title?

Are Tottenham serious challengers for the league title?

Tottenham have gone under the radar this season, after a poor October and November saw them lose ground in the league and get knocked out of the Champions League. This came as a surprise as many individuals under-performed and their 4-2-3-1 formation that had been successful began to falter. Their main problem was in attack, as they went through a period of scoring just four times in seven matches across all competitions after the side's victory over Manchester City. Although …
Why Harry Kane's injury and bad form was imminent

Why Harry Kane's injury and bad form was imminent

As the crowd thinned, quite contrary to the heat, which had begun to intensify and accentuate , Tottenham seemed overawed by the occasion and surprised by the impending loss. It looked as if the Tottenham we are accustomed to seeing since last season has assumed the form of being the one of the season before that- frail and weaker than expected. And Monaco had showed Mauricio Pochettino's side the mirror and the reflection from it brought the truth into focus- …
The Premier League key to Belgium’s Euro 2016

The Premier League key to Belgium’s Euro 2016

In the space of just a few years, Belgium seemed to come from nowhere to one of the best teams in Europe, with the emergence of a fantastically talented group of players. The depth of quality they now possess rivals Spain and Germany; something of a revolution from a small nation with a very weak domestic league. Most of the squad play their club football abroad and almost half in the Premier League, so here’s a look at the influence …
What do Tottenham need to become Premier League champions?

What do Tottenham need to become Premier League champions?

Its easy to see why Leicester City won the Premier League. They produced some of the best football seen in the top flight in recent years and combined as a team of in-form players to maintain relentless pressure on their opponents. Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez' season was exhilarating but Tottenham had their fair share of success too, despite not securing any silverware. But what are Pochettino's side missing and what do they need to do in the summer to …
