Tottenham Hotspur: All the latest Spurs flavoured news, views, rumours and other assorted bits and bobs

I quite like “World of Leather Lane”

Spurs hope to have new ground ready in time for 2012/13 season

Spurs knocked out by sucker punch

Spurs stars papped out on the town, worse for wear. And why not?

Latest whisper on Transfer Street says that Niko Kranjcar has passed a medical at Spurs

Beautiful through ball from Coley to Defoe. Oh. No. Seriously, what was Cole thinking? An early contender for worst pass of the season. Although for Spurs fans, it looked like a game-changing pass of rare beauty.

A terrible artist’s impression of how Luka Modric might look in a Man Utd kit if he was a Bobblehead and not a real person Message to Fergie: You took Carrick, you took Berbatov, but you’re not gonna take my Luka Modric. No way José. Yes, there is a scary rumour that Man Utd are […]

A couple of virals doing the rounds today: First up, cuddly Theo Walcott gets a dirty great tattoo on his arm: This has some link to Nike football boots. No idea what the link is, mind.

I remember the 1981 centenary FA Cup final, if not like it was yesterday then a lot more recently than 28 years ago. It was the season I began supporting Spurs, and so I’ll always have very fond memories of the cup-winning exploits of Perryman, Hoddle, Archibald, Ardiles, Villa and co. I thought I knew […]

We are top of the league, sing we are top of the league… Tottenham’s perfect start to this season couldn’t be in starker contrast to the nightmare of 08/09. Props to Arry Redknapp, who has managed to create what looks uncannily like a proper team – even David Bentley is back in the fold. And […]

I love this season already

August 20th, 2009

I don’t know if it’s because the recession has levelled the playing field – by weakening the big four – but already this season feels very different. By different, I mean unpredictable. And about time too. For years we have waited for a genuinely unpredictable Premier League, sitting through countless dreary games where the result […]

Solid win for Spurs, even if all three goals came in the last half hour. Highlights below: Lovely finish by Pavlyuchenko (most unlike him: he usually shins it over the bar), followed up by a Corluka tap-in and a composed run-and-finish by ickle Jermain Defoe. But perhaps the best news for Tottenham fans was the […]

“It’s going to be difficult to break into the top four, but if anyone has the potential this club does.” Peter Crouch, speaking earlier this week about Spurs’ chances this season. We’ve been here before. New player arrives at Spurs, can’t stop himself making unreasonable claims on the club’s behalf. Top four? Behave yourself, Crouchy. […]

“Do I wanna go Hull City NO. Do I wanna go stoke NO do I wanna go sunderland YES so stop f****** around levy.” Dazza Bent’s already infamous Tweet seems to have had a positive effect. The striker did get his “dream” move to Mackemland, and so avoided a one-way trip to hell Hull/Stoke. And […]

This is where you get to pick Tottenham’s best starting line-up for this season. First up, I’l dazzle you (ahem) with my selection (based on Spurs’ squad at time of writing)… My XI, played in a fairly standard 4-4-2 formation: Huerelho Gomes Vedran Corluka, Jonathan Woodgate, Ledley King, Benoit Assou-Ekotto Aaron Lennon, Wilson Palacios, Jermaine […]

“Spurs are on their way to Wembley, Tottenham’s gonna do it again.” You know Ossie’s thinking: “What the fuck am I doing here?” Fair play to Ardiles though, for playing the role of “dumb foreigner who can’t pronounce Tottenham like what the English does” (he even called his autobiography “Ossie’s Dream”). Today however, Ossie’s role […]

Simple, classy? Er, no… Click on the image to launch the gallery:

Crouchinho, an artist’s impression… @ Fulham: @ Sunderland: @ Spurs: (Yes, my PhotoShop skills are strong today.) I’ve read reports that Sunderland have agreed a £12m fee with Pompey for Crouchy. I’ve also heard that the player himself would rather go to Fulham or Spurs, but that Fulham might not be able to match his […]

A simple vote, just because I’d be interested to see which fans ‘win’. (I know who my money is on, just as I know who I’d vote for - every time - but I won’t say just now.) So let it out… which team’s fans do you find the most irritating, self-righteous, idiotic etc? Vote below: Which of […]

‘I’ve got a bad feeling about this…’ ‘Just smile Daveed, everything will be fine…’ So David Bentley was thumped in the face as he sat in a restaurant. Not nice for the player and especially nasty for his heavily preggo wife, who witnessed the attack. Even if there’s a very small part of you that […]

After three seasons at the Lane, Didier Zokora is moving on. Spurs have accepted Sevilla’s £7m offer for the Ivorian midfielder, and as a Yiddo I have to say it’s a decent deal, for both parties. Zokora never quite made good on the immense promise he showed at the 2006 World Cup, but he will […]

Tottenham Hotspur players Dave MacKay, goalkeeper Bill Brown, Jimmy Greaves and Terry Dyson (l to r) peer out into the fog in search of Manchester United players. [Photo: PA] The match, a Uefa Cup Winner’s Cup first-round tie in 1963, was postponed because of poor visibility. Ah, those were the days.
