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!

Back to Basics | Bale on Left, Modric in Middle | Opta Stats

Football should be a simple game. Play your best players in their best positions and you will be in with a chance. To that end, it is frustrating to see Harry Redknapp keep playing players out of position. After the first two games of the season, Tottenham went on a long unbeaten run playing some of the best football in the league. This was achieved by playing a system that worked, with Bale providing width on the left, Lennon on …
Spurs Out-played & Out-fought by AFC

Spurs Out-played & Out-fought by AFC

The two fixtures that all Spurs fans look out for at the start of the season are both games against Arsenal. These are the games that they want to win more than anything. On Sunday, Tottenham fans headed to the emirates full of optimism. They were on form and had brushed Newcastle aside with ease in their previous fixture - for the first time in two decades they had the possibility of doing the double over their arch rivals. Sitting …

Dynamic Duo Spearhead Spurs | Stats

In my previous article I looked at how Adebayor offered more to the team than just goals. His movement, hold up play and creativity have all been excellent and a major factor in Tottenham’s rise to the top 3 of the Premier League. Against Newcastle on Saturday evening, Adebayor was once again back to his best. With a new strike partner to play alongside, Adebayor seemed to be keen to impress. He linked up wonderfully with Saha and it was …
Adebayor - Offering More than Just Goals

Adebayor - Offering More than Just Goals

The one thing that Tottenham had been crying out for since selling Dimitar Berbatov was a top class striker - someone who could hold the ball up, bring others into play and most importantly put the ball in the back of the net. Signing Adebayor seemed to tick all of the boxes - a player with pace and power and someone who constantly found the net at White Hart Lane for his previous employers…. Just recently I have heard a …

Modric and Silva | Mercurial Midfielders

When Daniel Levy stood firm and said in no uncertain terms that Luka Modric would not be sold to Chelsea, a lot was made of how he would perform for Tottenham. Would a want away player give his all for a club that he seemed so desperately to want to leave? Thankfully, the mercurial Modric knuckled down and let his football do the talking. He has been central to the attacking flair that Tottenham have demonstrated this season and he …
Tottenham Bitten by Wolves | Stats Analysis

Tottenham Bitten by Wolves | Stats Analysis

When Tottenham took to the field against Everton last Wednesday in the long awaited fixture, there were a number of elements that intrigued me. The returns of Michael Dawson and Aaron Lennon, how Gareth Bale would perform against Phil Neville who played so well against him last season, and maybe most intriguing of all was how Jake Livermore would perform in central midfield. With Scott Parker not quite fit enough to return, and Sandro out of action, Livermore had a …

Kaboul Stats | Tottenham's Defensive Rock

After conceding 8 goals in the first two games of the season, I along with a lot of Spurs fans were thinking it could be a long hard season. We still hadn’t signed the star striker that we had been coveting since the loss of Berbatov, Modric was angling for a move to Chelsea and there seemed to be a distinct lack of cohesion within the squad. Fast forward 6 months and things are looking far healthier. Win the much …
Van Der Vaart Displays Another Side

Van Der Vaart Displays Another Side

There are so many reasons to love Rafael Van Der Vaart – his silky skills, his defence splitting through balls and probably more than anything, the fact that he can’t stop scoring against Arsenal! One side of his game that has often been criticised since moving to the Premier League is the defensive aspect. If you have the creative brilliance and goal scoring touch that Rafa possesses, you can forgive him this shortfall. Tottenham have adapted their team selection to …
