Tottenham Hotspur | Transfer Round-Up, Stats & Evaluation

Spurs missed out on Champions League qualification by one point in the 2012/2013 season, with a total of 72 points - the highest point total for a top flight team outside of the top four - ensuring Balemania would start as soon as the last kick of a ball was kicked at White Hart Lane. Zinedine Zidane, Florentino Perez and Gareth Bale's agent, Jonathan Barnett, came out of the woodwork as early as June, with rumours flying around about the …
Football: A Game of Balance | Liverpool, Tottenham & Swansea Transfers

Football: A Game of Balance | Liverpool, Tottenham & Swansea Transfers

Football is not a one-dimensional game. A team that scores goals will not win any games if they cannot prevent their opponents from scoring more. Likewise, a team could produce a clean sheet in every game of the season, but if they cannot score, they will not win. There are two sides to every successful football team, and the best clubs are the ones that utilise both sides. Football is a game of balance. In a world based purely on …

My Full Back's More Useful Than Yours | Johnson, Walker & Evra Vs Gunter, Debuchy & Cameron

The Full Back position is one that has evolved rapidly since the inception of the EPL, and so has the importance that this role plays in a team. It is no longer about being a solid defender with the ability to "stick it in the mixer", but a position that can involve being a key attacking wide player who’s team relies on them to provide the width for an otherwise narrow attacking threat.

Becca's Weekly PL Round Up: Henderson, Giroud and International Injuries

It was promoted as "Super Sunday", and this particular game day certainly didn't disappoint. Starting at Anfield, and Premier League leaders Liverpool kept up their 100% record for the beginning of the season after a hard-fought win against fierce rivals Manchester United. A goal in the third minute by hotshot (and Birthday Boy) Daniel Sturridge was enough to claim the win; one that will mean much more than three points to those of the red half of Merseyside. Being at …

Arsenal 1 Spurs 0 | Comparisons | Cazorla V Paulinho, Giroud V Soldado

A 3rd goal in as many Premier League games from Olivier Giroud powered Arsenal to their 4th consecutive victory in all competitions and their 2nd consecutive victory in the Premier League. The 1 - 0 victory over North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur was also Arsenal's 101st Derby win. But it wasn't a cake-walk for them as the team had to toil and toil hard until the dying moments. Credit must be given to Tottenham for putting up a fight, albeit …

Arsenal 1 Tottenham Hotspur 0 | Stats & Tactical Analysis

The transfer window has not even closed yet here was the first North London Derby of the season arriving earlier than normal. With Arsenal being fairly inactive in the transfer market leading up to this game whilst Spurs had set about significantly enhancing their squad, many will have viewed this game as potentially being more than just three points. This represented the opportunity to deliver a major psychological blow for Spurs if they won or for more of the same …
