Spurs trip to Newcastle previewed

Spurs trip to Newcastle previewed

A tough place to go for many premier league sides, St James’ park welcomes Tottenham Hotspur as the Premier League starts up again, following the international break. Newcastle remain unbeaten after seven games and Spurs haven’t won in Newcastle in the Premier League since 2004 when Timothee Atouba scored the winner and Spurs most regular goal scorer in this fixture has been own goals, with Newcastle having gifted Spurs 4 goals in 10 years. This should prove a real test …
Derby Day | Spurs vs Arsenal

Derby Day | Spurs vs Arsenal

The passion, vitriol and electricity of Derby Day will be unleashed on North London this Sunday afternoon. It is one of the fiercest matches of any season and a huge day on the calendar of both Spurs and Arsenal fans. It is a fixture that needs no extra spice. But this first derby of the season has plenty with Spurs sitting above Arsenal and looking to stay there. This fixture has had new life breathed into it in recent years …
Spurs, the story so far

Spurs, the story so far

After the first four league matches of the season, there is enough evidence to start judging Tottenham’s progress from last season. Spurs had 5 points after four games last season. After a tougher start this season they have 6. They had both scored and conceded 3 goals; those figures stand at 7 and 8 respectively. Spurs were blown away in the first two games this season and stopped the rot with improved performances at Molineux and against Liverpool. They have …
Liverpool V Spurs | No more 'Arry Carry'!

Liverpool V Spurs | No more 'Arry Carry'!

We all agree that Stoke basically got away with ‘arry carry’ last Saturday, and Liverpool will be hoping that there is no repeat in Sunday’s game at White Hart Lane against 'Arry’s Spurs. Last season Spurs got the better of the Reds in both premier league games, the 2-0 reverse at Anfield putting pay to Liverpool’s lingering hopes of European qualification (not to many people’s disappointment I may add!).  All Reds fans will be hoping that we can recover from …
Instant Impact | Adebayor and Parker

Instant Impact | Adebayor and Parker

Tottenham picked up their first league win of the season with a patchy 2-0 win at previously undefeated Wolves, thanks to new signings Adebyor and Parker. This is a good result; Wolves picked up 10 points at home last season against the top 6, and is an improvement on the 3-3 result in last year’s fixture. While Spurs didn’t set the world on fire and had more than a few shaky moments at the back, new signings Adebayor and Parker …
Palacios & Crouch | You're not listening Tony

Palacios & Crouch | You're not listening Tony

It’s nearly deadline day, and what does that mean? Last minute panic buys from mid table clubs, and selling your best player with no time to spend the money of course. Stoke have done some good business this summer, with Jonathan Woodgate and Matthew Upson both coming in to improve on an already very solid defence, but with no new strikers or midfielders coming in, Pulis seems set to rely on youth to back up his established stars. A lot …
Why everyone is trying to sign Modric

Why everyone is trying to sign Modric

Luka Modric has become the Helen of Troy of the transfer market. Like the fit girl in the year above which no-one can get and has a dickhead of a boyfriend, in this case the dickhead is Daniel Levy, everyone fucking wants him. But why does everyone want him so much? It is well known that he neither scores goals, or gets many assists, so it is a fair question to ask; what the fuck does he do? Pass, a …
Passing is King as United Hammer Spurs

Passing is King as United Hammer Spurs

David De Gea has been absolutely hammered during his short Manchester United career but demonstrated why he, and the rest of the Manchester United team which swept Spurs aside tonight, are a cut above the rest of the Premier League. Spurs came to Old Trafford with more than a few respected observers expecting them to trouble the champions, but goals from Danny Welbeck, Anderson and Wayne Rooney were enough to see United home after a stop-start first half. Welbeck struggled …
