Hard Fought

Post 74 Stoke 1 Spurs 2 Spurs made it six PL wins in a row with a hard-fought victory at Stoke. It was a far from vintage display by a Spurs team that might have lost a game like this pre-Pochettino. The main talking point afterwards was whether Kane’s shoulder touched Eriksen’s free-kick for our […]

Climb Every Mountain

Post 66 Juventus 2 Spurs 2 If this is a rollercoaster, I love it. Yes, Spurs still have their dips. But the momentum built up over the past 3 years is definitely a case of “9 steps forward, 1 step back”. We have a young manager still evolving. His aides and coaches still learning. A […]

AS EXPECTED

Post 65 Spurs 1 Arsenal 0 The XG stats for this game were apparently 3.0 to 0.6. It certainly felt like that. A win of 3-0, maybe 3-1 would have been the right outcome.  So, the ‘real’ 1-0 result didn’t do justice to Spurs’ performance or dominance. At the H-T break to be drawing at […]

Man that was fun !

Contract Time

Post 59 It’s Contract Time ! Rumblings out of THFC suggest that a raft of new contracts are in the offing, including Toby’s long-stalled renewal, plus extensions and raises for Kane, Dele, Eriksen and Son, with others possible too. Toby’s a special case with his existing complex contract (involving an extension option that triggers a release […]

MVC

Post 56 Spurs 3 AFC Wimbledon 0 The world’s 3rd Most Valuable Player notched 2 more goals as Spurs dispatched a spirited Wimbledon in the 3rd Round of the FA Cup. We have now been drawn to play away at Newport County in the 4th Round. It’s a shame for Newport’s club (financially) and their […]
