It’s time for Pochettino and Tottenham to part ways

It’s time for Pochettino and Tottenham to part ways

Mauricio Pochettino is currently enduring the worst period of his Tottenham managerial career, with the team languishing in the bottom half of the table. They are currently only six points above the relegation zone. Although they are regulars in the Champions League, Spurs are now 11 points behind Manchester City in 4th position, with their chances of qualification looking slim at best. In the modern game, it is easy to suggest a managerial change will fix matters on the pitch and …

Tottenham vs Sheffield United Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Tottenham are facing a very difficult test on Saturday against in-form Sheffield United. The visiting team have been the surprise package of the season so far, as they currently find themselves in 6th position. In fact, these two teams find themselves in the position that the other would have expected to be in. The home side may have the superior talent in their squad, but the newly-promoted away side have been a well balanced unit and they will go to North …
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. …
Arsenal need to start Lacazette against Tottenham

Arsenal need to start Lacazette against Tottenham

Arsenal were disappointing in defeat against Liverpool last weekend. There was a clear plan from Unai Emery, as he looked to counter with pace and exploit the wide spaces left vacant by the advancing Reds' full-backs. It wasn't a bad idea. In fact, if Nicolas Pepe had scored his one-on-one at 0-0, the Gunners may have gone on to get something from the game. However, the new signing was denied by Adrian and a predictable home win came to pass. …
Spurs’ Eriksen Dilemma Could Derail Campaign

Spurs’ Eriksen Dilemma Could Derail Campaign

Mauricio Pochettino has made his displeasure around England’s closed transfer window known yet again, and with good reason. Christian Eriksen, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen are all into the final year of their contracts, leaving Spurs vulnerable to bids in the European transfer market, the window for which closes only on the second of September. Given the lack of defensive cover, the club may still hang onto the two players on the wrong side of thirty and let them run …

Man City vs Tottenham Preview | Team News, Key Men & Predictions

Tottenham face a very difficult trip to face Premier League champions Manchester City this weekend. Both teams managed to win their opening fixture, but Pep Guardiola’s team were far more convincing. They put five goals past West Ham United with Raheem Sterling scoring a hat-trick. Meanwhile, Tottenham had to come from behind to beat Aston Villa. They managed to do so thanks to a great display from their talisman, Harry Kane. Those two players will be vital to their respective …
Tottenham Vs Liverpool | Champions League Final Preview

Tottenham Vs Liverpool | Champions League Final Preview

When the Champions League semi-final draw was made, there were very few football fans out there who gave either Liverpool or Tottenham a realistic chance of making it to the final. After their respective first legs, fewer fans would have given them any chance. But in two successive nights of miraculous football, both Liverpool and Tottenham overcame first-leg deficits, and seemingly insurmountable odds to reach the final in Madrid on Saturday night. As both of the teams showed in their …
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 …
