It looks like Darren Bent is off to White Hart Lane, for around Â£17m – yes, because he is worth more than Thierry Henry. If the move goes ahead, then the soon-to-be-ex-Charlton striker will have to fight Robbie Keane, Fat Mido and possibly Jermain Defoe for the right to partner Dimitar Berbatov up front. (Although [...]
We can empathise will Arsenal fans at the moment. They’ve lost their greatest goal scorer, there’s uncertainty over Wenger’s future and even Les Miserables himself, Nikolas Anelka, could be making a prodigal return.
So, in our last look at Henry’s greatest goals we’ve saved one that will even raise a smile from Gunners that are still getting over seeing him in a Barca shirt earlier today
Now that Gooner talisman Thierry Henry has left for Barcelona, how do you feel Arsenal’s squad matches up against Spurs? Personally, I feel the two squads are as evenly matched as at any time since the Premiership began. I also feel that Spurs have their best chance in years of finishing above Arsenal next season. Let’s take a look at how the squads currently match-up:
As you might expect, Dimitar Berbatov features prominently. Is Paul Robinson’s freak goal in there too? You’ll have to watch below to find outâ€¦
There are some things in football you never expect to see. England winning a major championship, Jonathan Stead scoring a goal or Gary Neville standing on the Kop to take in a Liverpool game during a Saturday afternoon off, for example. You could add to that list Thierry Henry celebrating victory in a Spurs shirt except it has happened – well, sort of.
Spurs striker Dimitar Berbatov has been named as the best transfer buy of last season by university researchers. Pies has already given you its transfer flops of the season, but now Professor Tom Cannon, of the University of Buckingham, is informing us where the wise money was spent last summer. The analysis ranges between the blatantly obvious and the alarmingly random!
So it looks like Scott Parker will definitely be going to Upton Park thenâ€¦ [Via Caught Offside]
Spurs are on the verge of pulling off a bit of a transfer coup with Southampton youngster Gareth Bale reportedly undergoing a medical at White Hart Lane. The Welsh wonderkid had also been linked with a move to both Manchester United and Arsenal, but Spurs seem to have beaten them to it. The 17-year-old left-back turned down a Â£10 million move to White Hart Lane in the January transfer window, but was widely tipped to move on in the summer.
Phew, after the immense shock of seeing Tottenham’s rubbish new kit, I could do with some positive Spurs news. And here it is: Dimitar Berbatov, the best player in the whole world (or at least the best Bulgarian) is reportedly set to stay at Spurs for another season.
Arsenal with a white away kit and now this madness! I’m still not convinced this is genuine, even though the picture seems to be free of the signs of Photoshop. Anyway, Caught Offside has posted this pic of what is apparently Spurs’ new kit for next season. I think it’s a nod to a similar strip worn by Tottenham in the 19th, but that doesn’t mean I have to like it simply out of respect for the club’s traditions.
Two Charlton Athletic fans come to term’s with their club’s relegation. Charlton lost 2-0 at home to Spurs last night, condemning them to the drop. Tottenham’s win keeps them in the hunt for a Uefa Cup place, and also ensures the Premiership status of Fulham for at least another season. Watch highlights of the match after the clickâ€¦

A few transfer bits and bobs doing the rounds todayâ€¦
Put simply, it was a shit weekend for goals in the Premiership, so I won’t post the top five. There were just two half-decent goals scored, both of which you can watch belowâ€¦

As someone with a soft spot for Spurs, I really thought they were going all the way in the UEFA Cup this season. Their name was on the cup, or so I thought until about ten minutes into last night’s second-leg quarter final, when they found themselves 2-0 down to a very strong Sevilla side [...]
This tie hangs in the balance after an entertaining 90 minutes. Spurs raced into the lead after 68 seconds â€“ Robbie Keane making the most of Dimitar Berbatov’s neat through ball â€“ but Sevilla equalised via a dubious penalty: Paul Robinson felled Adriano in the box, but the Spurs keeper did get a lot of [...]
Sheva’s back! And he’s wearing magic glovesâ€¦ 55′ [0 - 1] A. ShevchenkoUploaded by tzonner Great goal to help Chelsea reach the FA Cup semis – looks like the FA will get the Chelsea v Man Utd final they crave for the new Wembley.
Why didn’t Paul Konchesky commit a professional foul on Jermain Defoe and stop a likely winning goal for Spurs (see video)? Yes, he would have been sent off, but he would have probably earned a precious point for his club. Gary Neville sure as hell wouldn’t have let Defoe run that far and take a [...]
News reaches us that Premiership chairmen are going to be forced into cutting ‘obscene’ ticket prices because fans have just about had enough of being the victims of daylight robbery every weekend, and as a result, football has reached a tipping point. Two top-flight chairmen have expressed the same view, both of whom predict price [...]
So the Quarter Final draw has been made for the FA Cup and the big guns have been kept apart once more. Middlesbrough or West Brom v Manchester United or Reading Arsenal or Blackburn v Manchester City Chelsea v Tottenham Plymouth v Watford The matches will take place on 10 and 11 March. Who do [...]
It’s hard to recall an English player that is as naturally gifted as Glenn Hoddle. He could do just about anything with a ball, and in the eighties, when this was a rarity, he was a delight to watch. Inside the 18-yard box he was lethal… and was twice as deadly from distance. His goal [...]
