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

  • Video of Jermaine Jenas’s amazing miss v Liverpool September 25th, 2006 Liverpool

    It’s not the worst miss I’ve ever seen, but Jenas – who, in his defence, had made an excellent run into the box – should really have hit the target from two yards out. Edgar Davids didn’t look too impressed with his team-mate. Of course, Liverpool march up the other end and score the game’s […]

  • Blog of the week: Beef Bagel September 21st, 2006 Tottenham Hotspur

The general theme is Spurs, obviously, but the author (the mysterious ‘Bagel’) writes intensely personal posts, rather than generic football ones. Take this extract, for example: […]

  • Berbatov the goal monger August 6th, 2006 Tottenham Hotspur

    So, Berbatov keeps scoring. He’s scored three magnificent goals in the pre-season, and confirms my belief in him… based solely on him being ace on various computer games. Watch his tricksy goal against Borussia Dortmund and hope he doesn;t do it against your team in the coming months. Mof Gimmers You have already read 4 […]

  • Spurs unleash new brown away kit. Aaaaaargh! August 3rd, 2006 Kits & fashion

    Coventry City famously wore a hideous brown kit in the 70s and they’ve still not shaken off the grim association of that fashion disaster – so you’d have thought that Spurs, or any club for that matter, would know better. But no. The colour of Tottingham’s new third strip for the coming season is milk-chocolate; […]

  • Transfer gossip heats up with Cole, Carrick and Downing July 31st, 2006 Arsenal

    Bloody hell. It’s all hotting up. Aside from Chelsea, it’s all seemed a bit quiet in transfer land, until now! Carrick has gone to Man Urinal, with the club apparently shelling out £18.6 million on him (phew!). So what will Jol spend his money on? Well, it would seem he’s after Gareth Barry (who’d blame […]

    OUT Man Utd’s attempts to politely ditch Ruud Van Nistelrooy before the season begins have finally paid off. Van Nistelrooy will be unveiled by Real Madrid today after United agreed an £11.5million deal – several million less than the £15m they wanted. Thank God that’s over, it was boring me to tears. IN The man […]

  • Tight-fisted Spurs asked Chelsea to pay Duff’s wages July 27th, 2006 Chelsea

    How daft are Spurs? You try and convince everyone that you’re a big club with ambition, and then, whilst trying to land a big player (like Damien Duff), you ask a proper big club (like Chelsea) to help out with his wages. Spurs have a wage structure that is seemingly pretty strict. No-one at Spurs […]

  • One to watch: Dimitar Berbatov, Tottenham Hotspur July 24th, 2006 Tottenham Hotspur

    Spurs shelled out roughly £10m to sign Dimitar Berbatov from Bayer Leverkusen. Here’s why he’s ten times better than Mido… Conclusions: he’s great in the air and sharp in the box.

    It looks likely that Chelski winger Damien Duff is about to move from west London to north London.
