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 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 …

The decision to sell Dembele could derail Tottenham's season

Mousa Dembele is closing in on a Tottenham exit as he is set for an £11 million move to Chinese Super League club Beijing Guoan. Although he was set to leave on a free at the end of the season, this is a bitter blow for Spurs and questions will be asked if a replacement isn’t brought in.
