Spurs trip to Newcastle previewed

A tough place to go for many premier league sides, St James’ park welcomes Tottenham Hotspur as the Premier League starts up again, following the international break. Newcastle remain unbeaten after seven games and Spurs haven’t won in Newcastle in the Premier League since 2004 when Timothee Atouba scored the winner and Spurs most regular goal scorer in this fixture has been own goals, with Newcastle having gifted Spurs 4 goals in 10 years. This should prove a real test …

Spurs, the story so far

Spurs, the story so far

After the first four league matches of the season, there is enough evidence to start judging Tottenham’s progress from last season. Spurs had 5 points after four games last season. After a tougher start this season they have 6. They had both scored and conceded 3 goals; those figures stand at 7 and 8 respectively.

Instant Impact | Adebayor and Parker

Tottenham picked up their first league win of the season with a patchy 2-0 win at previously undefeated Wolves, thanks to new signings Adebyor and Parker. This is a good result; Wolves picked up 10 points at home last season against the top 6, and is an improvement on the 3-3 result in last year’s fixture. While Spurs didn’t set the world on fire and had more than a few shaky moments at the back, new signings Adebayor and Parker …

Undefeated Wolves welcome bottom placed Spurs to Molineux this weekend.

Man United Vs Spurs | Preview

Old Trafford has been less of a Theatre of Dreams and more of a Ford’s Theatre for Spurs in recent years. Visits in league and cup matches have ended largely the same way and Spurs haven’t won there since 1989. This information is well known by Spurs fans. Recent years have seen generally good performances go unrewarded, but after the 5-0 warm up in Scotland, there is a genuine sense of optimism for the travelling fans this week. Cause for …
Tom Huddlestone, the main man in the middle?

Tom Huddlestone, the main man in the middle?

When Tottenham finished 4th in 2009-10, Tom Huddlestone made 33 Premier League appearances. He was a vital part of a successful team. Last season he made only 13 starts. Is it possible that his absence was a major factor in a less successful Tottenham team? How big is big Tom? After making his senior England debut and playing an important role in the charge for 4th, injury caused Huddlestone to miss most of an important season in his career. Despite …
