Realising the Importance of Victor Wanyama at Tottenham

This current Tottenham Hotspur side isn’t one that gives a fan the vibes of their team of the 2009-10 season, does it? The presence of the likes of Luka Modric, Gareth Bale and Aaron Lennon gave Harry Redknapp’s team a wholly different look than the one that Mauricio Pochettino has, as things stand. The likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen may not be as recognisable faces of the game as Bale or Modric, but that is exactly what …
How Oriol Romeu Has Resurrected Himself and Southampton

How Oriol Romeu Has Resurrected Himself and Southampton

While Claude Puel’s ever improving Southampton may be enjoying a decent campaign during his first season in charge in England, his side has adapted quickly to his methods. Currently tenth in the table, behind South Coast rivals Bournemouth on goal-difference, the Saints were expected to play out a season of transition under a manager who had never managed outside France before. But the manner in which the side has performed could come in as a surprise to those who believed …

Mousa Dembele - How important is his return from suspension?

Mousa Dembele - How important is his return from suspension?

After a lengthy suspension, Mousa Dembele is finally available for selection in the Premier League for Tottenham. He has been hugely missed in the centre of the park after emerging as one of the side's best players over the last 12 months. The Belgian has undergone an unlikely resurgence at White Hart Lane after once being seen as surplus to requirements. His improvement under Mauricio Pochettino has been huge and he provides qualities to the central midfield that both Victor …
Could The Two Strikers Formation Work Out For Spurs?

Could The Two Strikers Formation Work Out For Spurs?

Tottenham won 1-0 over Crystal Palace, and the possibility of using two strikers seems to become more and more evident. Victor Janssen’s purchase back in July itself, hinted at that. After all, he was the top scorer in the Eredivisie last season. Based on Janssen’s stats, he would not be happy just being Harry Kane’s back-up, and there’s no reason why anybody would buy a player like him to act as the second choice. If you take a look at …
What Would Represent a Good Season for Spurs?

What Would Represent a Good Season for Spurs?

Tottenham Hotspur have made great strides under Mauricio Pochettino since the Argentine swapped the South Coast for North London. Last season, they finished third after being involved in the title race for a large part of the season. Although they finished below Arsenal again, there is optimism that Tottenham are on their way to surpassing their local rivals in the coming years. They have a young squad and will have Champions League football this season, for the first time since …
The battle for the Premier League top four – Part 1

The battle for the Premier League top four – Part 1

So, yet another season is upon us and, on paper at least, it promises to be one of the most competitive yet when it comes to the top end of the Premier League. I’m actually finding it almost impossible to call at the present moment when it comes to which team will be lifting the title and the competition for those coveted Champions League spots will be intense. It’s only right and proper to start with the reigning champions Leicester …
Is Claude Puel another shrewd appointment by Southampton?

Is Claude Puel another shrewd appointment by Southampton?

Southampton have been the envy of a lot of clubs outside the top six since they returned to the Premier League under Nigel Adkins. They have an excellent recruitment system, play good football and have a knack of appointing quality managers. They bought Mauricio Pochettino and Ronald Koeman to the Premier League, both of whom have moved onto other clubs in the league. Their latest appointment is Claude Puel, who won't be known to a lot of fans in England, …
