Keane is the final piece in Rafa Benitez’s puzzle I’ve noticed that on a lot of football forums, both Liverpool and Spurs fans are claiming that Robbie Keane is past it; Spurs fans say it because they’re sad to see him go, Liverpool fans say it because perhaps they would rather sign a younger buck […]

With Liverpool & Mun Utd circling, Spurs must keep at least one of its star strikers It seems very likely that Berbatov will sign for Man Utd this summer: Fergie wants him – the Utd boss has “good expectations” that the Bulgarian will come to Old Trafford – and Berby himself wants to join United, […]
Putting the hot into Hotspur In which Tottenham’s hairless wonders, decked out in nothing but team-issue shorts, lark about in the sea on a team-bonding exercise. A couple more pics this way…

Spurs’ new wonderboy looks a lot like Dutch legend Let’s get this SLAL out of the way before the new season begins. It’s been said before, and we’ll say it again: Modric does bear more than a passing resemblence to the great Dutchman, both physically and in terms of playing style. [Via Luka Modric fans]

Arsenal – Artur Boruc
Poland’s keeper was in top form during the competition and a move to a top four club could be enough to tempt him away from Celtic. The Gunners – with Jens Lehmann on his way out – could be interested.
Today’s hottest football gossip, brought to you by the number nine 1. Richard Dunne to Portsmouth Man City’s captain is in the final year of his contract, and Portsmouth are very keen to tempt the player to south, according to the Manchester Evening News. Dunne is currently on holiday but other reports suggest that he […]
Just a few of the many rumours filling up today’s back pages 1. Samir Nasri to Arsenal The 21-year-old French playmaker is expected to join the Gunners at some stage in the next week, although his agent Jean-Pierre Bernes insisted last night the reports on the midfielder’s site of a done deal were “premature”. The […]

THEN: Dumitrescu arrived in the Premier League after some outstanding performances at the 1994 World Cup which saw him help Romania to the quarter-finals. Tottenham paid Â£2.6 million to bring the midfielder to England from Steaua Bucharest, where he had spent the first eight years of his professional career. The start of his career in England was overshadowed by a story in the News of the World that he had requested the services of a prostitute. He went in exile/on-loan to Sevilla after a brief but fairly successful spell for Spurs. He returned for the start of the 1995-96 season and played a handful of games before being flogged to West Ham. His Hammers career was short-lived and Dumitrescu was soon fleeing the tackling habits of Premier League defenders to continue career in Mexico with Club America.
Spurs went for motorway chic with this mid-1980s kit. The design, courtesy of Danish company Hummel, features not only chevrons but also a hatched area across the chest. Dribbling round this lot must have felt like a tour of the M25. The chevrons across the middle of the shirt are very useful, but I’m sure […]
Spurs midfielder goes all Miami Vice A good look for JJ? We think not.
Monday’s most attractive transfer gossip. Surely one of these might happen? 1.

Vote on which one is most likely to happen… 1. Peter Crouch to Villareal Will Crouchinho (pictured) be playing in all-yellow next season?

Like some wise old schoolmaster, Pies grades each Premier League team based on their 07/08 campaign. Here’s part two: Man City (9th) Started brilliantly, finished with a whimper. Overall though, Sven-Goran Eriksson did a good job of restoring pride to the sky-blue half of Manchester. A couple of his signings were notable successes – Elano […]
If this was based on waistline alone, the answer would be a resounding yes. But no, we are talking social networking and Myspace. There is a Tom Huddlestone MySpace, which not only features links to Pies’ videos of Huddlestone, but even includes our One to Watch profile of him!
Spurs reveal new kits I guess we can presume from this PR shot that Ledley King, Robbie Keane and Jon Woodgate will all be at Tottenham next season? No Dimi Berbatov though? Does that mean that Spurs are more than willing to offload him in the summer, at any cost? Anyway, what do you think […]
Putting the beautiful into the beautiful game… One thousand thanks to Chringle, King of the Shit Lookalikes, for sending in this cracking picture of Dimitar Berbatov. I’m not sure where he got it, or if it’s a Photoshop job, but that doesn’t stop me enjoying it. Sexy time, ees very nice!
