Spurs vs Leicester City Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Tottenham Hotspur head into this vital fixture with a rather large cloud over their head. So far 2015 has been most unkind. Not only have they lost the Capital One Cup final with Chelsea and crashed out of the Europa League to Fiorentina, Mauricio Pochettino's side have also lost serious ground in the race for the top four with defeats to Liverpool and Manchester United proving particularly galling. The loss to Liverpool was probably fair enough. Spurs played well, scored …

Can Psychology Help Tottenham's Strikers?

The sport world can often become intertwined. It’s why Sir Ian Botham played both pro cricket and football and why Olympic athletes may make their way into the NFL - and when it comes to football management, the art of poker could not be any closer. Sit yourself down at a poker table full of pros and you can almost taste the psychological warfare; it’s what makes it great. Trade that with football and it’s exactly the same. Whether it …
Nacer Chadli - The Secret Weapon In Spurs' Arsenal

Nacer Chadli - The Secret Weapon In Spurs' Arsenal

Last season, Gareth Bale was sold to Real Madrid by Tottenham in return for a world record fee. The Spurs, under the management of the usually clueless Andre Villas-Boas and the usually shrewd Daniel Levy decided that a £100 bill is worth the same as a hundred £1 coins. Well, theoretically they are, but that’s generally not how it works in football as even Liverpool have seen first-hand this season. It is crucial to replace quality with quality and not …
Soldado Ends Nine Month League Goal Drought

Soldado Ends Nine Month League Goal Drought

Roberto Soldado scored what proved to be the winning goal, his first league goal in 9 months, and first in all competitions in 594 minutes. Tottenham started in a 4-4-2 formation with Kane playing slightly behind Soldado up front with academy products Ryan Mason and Nabil Bentaleb in the middle of midfield. Lennon brought width that has been missing in recent weeks. Everton lined up in a 4-2-3-1 with Barkley behind Lukaku in a narrow formation. Tottenham pressed high and …
Spurs Reach Europa League Knockout Stages

Spurs Reach Europa League Knockout Stages

It turned out to be a quite entertaining game at White Hart Lane, but not all the fun was provided by players. The fans took things into their own hands during a lacklustre first half, with three invaders charging on the pitch in the space of 20 minutes attempting to take selfies with the less than impressed Spurs players. The third incident forced the referee Yevgen Aranovsky to suspend the match for 10 minutes with little remaining of the first …
Another Late show for Spurs as they edge past Hull City

Another Late show for Spurs as they edge past Hull City

It was Deja vu for Spurs as they came from behind for the second consecutive away match to grab all 3 points against a determined Hull City. It took a red card 6 minutes into the second half to kick start the performance which looked destined to end up like many of Spurs’ recent performances. Both teams named 6 changes with Tottenham reverting to a 4-4-2 formation with Soldado and Kane partnered up top. Hull City feature 3 ex-Tottenham players …
Should Pochettino opt for Adebayor, Soldado or Kane?

Should Pochettino opt for Adebayor, Soldado or Kane?

When Mauricio Pochettino swapped St Mary’s for White Hart Lane this summer, much focus was placed on how the Argentine’s departure would affect poor old Southampton. The presumption was that Tottenham, a side struggling for consistency, would go from strength to strength whilst mirroring the high pressing, attractive style of football that Pochettino implemented with The Saints. The influx of players purchased by Daniel Levy with the Gareth Bale bounty would finally start firing on all cylinders under their new …
Manchester City v Spurs 13/14: What Did the Fans Think?

Manchester City v Spurs 13/14: What Did the Fans Think?

Saturday morning sees the return of Tottenham Hotspur to the Etihad, a fixture that was notorious last season for the 6-0 thrashing the Blues meted out to the Londoners. Jesús Navas opened the scoring on 14 seconds and closed it on 90 minutes to collect his brace, while two goals from Sergio Agüero on either side of half-time was closely followed by one from Álvaro Negredo. An own goal from Sandro capped a miserable day for Spurs, who fell foul …
