Analysing Tottenham's disappointing decline

Analysing Tottenham's disappointing decline

Tottenham will have welcomed the international break, after some sobering results. It was disappointing to get knocked out of the Carabao Cup to Colchester United,  but the supporters will be far more concerned at their last two defeats. The 7-2 mauling at the hands of Bayern Munich as humiliating and shows how far they have fallen since their Champions League heroics last season. The underlying stats of the game hint that the performance wasn't as bad as the scoreline suggests. …

Chelsea Vs Liverpool Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Of the four English sides playing in the Champions League group stages, two lost in the first game week this mid-week.

Liverpool Again Come Up Short at Napoli

Liverpool Again Come Up Short at Napoli

“Don’t you worry, if you lose in Naples, then you end up winning the Champions League!", said Carlo Ancelotti to Jurgen Klopp after his side had beaten Liverpool in a game that could have gone either way. The reigning European Champions had traveled to Naples to begin their 2019-20 European campaign. It is fair to say that their defense did not begin on a great note. For the first 80 minutes it was difficult to point to a team in …

Napoli Vs Liverpool Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

The UEFA Champions League 2019-20 begins this week, with the Champions Liverpool visiting Napoli for their first group stage match. The Reds and the Partenopei are familiar foes from last season but they are grouped with an easier set of teams – Red Bull Salzburg and Genk, as compared to Paris St Germain and Red Star Belgrade. Last time, despite losing 1-0 in Naples (and in Paris and Belgrade), the Reds progressed. This time, progress to the last sixteen looks …
Champions League Final A Catch-22 Situation For Spurs

Champions League Final A Catch-22 Situation For Spurs

The Champions League final next weekend leaves me in a position I would rather not be in. It pits Liverpool, the club I have supported since 1988 against Tottenham, a team I have an immense soft spot for. I wrote a piece a couple of years back about Spurs being the poster-boys for sustainable spending and have long maintained that they deserve a trophy to show for their efforts.  I will be rooting for a Liverpool win come the first …
Tottenham must start Son and Lucas against Liverpool

Tottenham must start Son and Lucas against Liverpool

Tottenham are weeks away from the biggest match in the club's recent history. It could even be said that it is the biggest game since the club was formed. It is their chance to be crowed champions of Europe. To earn that title, they need to overcome a fellow Premier League side in Liverpool. They will start the match as outsiders, as they have only won once in the last 14 meetings between the two clubs. However, this is a …
Tottenham vs Ajax | Champions League Semi-Final Preview

Tottenham vs Ajax | Champions League Semi-Final Preview

Tottenham will play their first ever Champions League semi-final this week, as they welcome Ajax to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. There has been great anticipation ever since the quarter-final victory over Manchester City. This should be an entertaining tie, with both teams wanting to play a positive brand of football. The home side's achievements have been somewhat overshadowed by the exploits of their semi-final opponents. Both sides have done extremely well to reach this stage, but they are now so …
