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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Take a bow, my Son

Post 49 Spurs 5 Stoke City 1 (Shawcross OG, Son, Kane 2, Eriksen) Son Heung-min signed for Spurs 2 ½ years ago. For most of that time he’s been seen primarily as a bench option; a high quality squad player who doesn’t quite fit into our first team when everybody’s fit. Whatever version of 3-4-2-1 […]

Hoodoo? We do (words)

Post 38 Spurs 4 Liverpool 1 (Kane 2, Son, Dele), (Salah) Hoodoo? Spurs did for Liverpool yesterday with a comprehensive win despite only having 36% possession. Liverpool are meant to be Spurs’ bogey team. Wembley is meant to be a hoodoo ground for us. Both narratives were chewed and spat out by our players and […]
