Spurs to face Toffee’s in Carling Cup draw

September 26th, 2009 by Luke Brown

The draw for the Carling Cup fourth round was completed today at 12:15, and Tottenham were drawn at home to David Moyes’ Everton side. Everton are regarded as one of the better teams in the Premier League, however they have made a poor start to the 2009/2010 season and currently lie 13th in the table, [...]

A comprehensive defeat, but the panic button shouldn’t be pressed just yet

September 13th, 2009 by Luke Brown

So that’s that. Tottenham’s 100% record has been brought to a swift end by the current Premier League champions in a game which demonstrated first hand just why we are not (yet) top four material. Manchester United were classier and harder working than us yesterday, and their skill showed us they fought back from a [...]

Spurs triumph 2-1, cue the open top bus parade…

August 25th, 2009 by Luke Brown

Tottenham are (still) top of the league. That’s six days now, however, from the reaction of a sizable majority of fans and supposedly “expert” pundits, you’d have thought that we’d been top for six months. We’ve won three games on the bounce and now we’re Champions League material. Forget your Chelsea’s and your Man U’s [...]

If You Don’t Have Anything Negative to Say…

August 22nd, 2009 by juandeful

… Don’t say anything at all. It may sound strange, yet this statment has to be adhered to, to some extent. Not only last season, but also the season before that, fans and the media were predicting a top four finish. In both cases, it was an unbalanced team with massive potential being over-hyped. Now [...]

My thoughts on our Hull victory

August 20th, 2009 by Luke Brown

Tottenham are currently the best team in England. OK, that may be a tad optimistic but the table doesn’t lie. 2 games, 6 points, 1st place. Sounds good doesn’t it.
I’d advise you take a good look at the table now because, somehow, I don’t think we’ll be perched there for long. But it is a [...]

Hull 1 v Tottenham 5: Match Report

August 20th, 2009 by Luke Brown

It’s fair to say that Hull don’t exactly have an enviable home record- their last home win came in November- but Harry Redknapp will nevertheless be delighted with his teams effort as they crushed Phil Brown’s Hull City side 5-1. Jermain Defoe was in fantastic form and netted a hat-trick, whilst under pressure club captain [...]

My thoughts on the Liverpool victory

August 18th, 2009 by Luke Brown

Before the Liverpool game it seemed everyone had forgot about Spurs. Aston Villa, Everton and Moneybags City were the teams tipped to break the top four whilst Spurs slipped back into the “mid-table obscurity” pack. Even the fans seemed to have slightly more realistic hopes this season; instead of “Lets get in the Champions League” [...]

Harry Playing it Safe

August 17th, 2009 by juandeful

After watching Sebastien Bassong put in a solid, if match-winning, shift on his debut against Liverpool on Sunday; something struck me. For many years, Daniel Levy has backed his managers with continuous funds, which have frequently been spent on exciting prospects from foreign countries, and sometimes,┬álesser leagues. However Harry Redknapp’s tenure at the helm of [...]

Tottenham 2 v Liverpool 1 – Match Report

August 17th, 2009 by Luke Brown

In just one game, Spurs have now accumulated more points than it took them to achieve in eight games last year. The “2 points 8 games” saga that started last season was a distant memory to Spurs fans leaving White Hart Lane yesterday, as optimism once again came off the Tottenham supporters in waves. Of [...]
