Tottenham Resurgent On and Off the Pitch

Right now Tottenham boast the longest unbeaten run in the league and a defensive record that cannot be bettered. Liverpool visit White hart Lane on Saturday under new boss Jurgen Klopp. Of course it would be very Spursy to be swept away by the tide of renewed Scouse optimism. But Spurs aren't Spursy anymore.

There May Be a Chance of a Football Match Breaking Out at Spurs v Stoke

Last season rather petered out for Tottenham. Broadly speaking it wasn't bad, but with any chance of a top four finish long gone and fondly held hopes of avoiding Europa League qualification also dashed, some of us who attended the last home game against Hull struggled to stay awake...

Why Pochettino Is Tottenham's Most Valuable Asset

Anyone who thinks Pochettino has merely been lucky to turn up at a time when these players have started to excel should glance at what he did at Southampton. In the time he was there he turned a bunch of largely uncelebrated professionals into big stars.

Spurs Aren't 'Spursy' Anymore

In just a few months Pochettino has managed to assert his authority in a way that none of his recent predecessors have. The football has been entertaining, the results have been good, but it is the manner in which they have been achieved that has been the clearest and most welcome manifestation of his influence.

Tottenham Have What It Takes to Win at Anfield

For Tottenham to make a game of it all that's required is more of the relentless intensity and flair that did for Arsenal. In Sturridge, Sterling and the in-form Coutinho, Liverpool have dangerous attackers but they look less than impregnable at the back.

History Will Judge Aaron Lennon's Exhilarating Tottenham Career Kindly

The moment when a player leaves a club isn't usually the time that his efforts get the fairest assessment. If he is going at the peak of his powers the fans are disinclined to appreciate the good times because they feel jilted. If he goes when his best days are behind him, fans are slow to remember him in his pomp.

Eriksen Supreme but Pochettino Is Tottenham's Real Hero

In getting Spurs to the Capital One Cup final and keeping them in contention for the Europa League and a top four Premiership finish, Pochettino is having a remarkably good first season. To the more delusional Spurs fan this level of achievement might be considered par but given what he's had to contend with, it is much better than that.

Tottenham Must Play Harry Kane at Centre Forward

Tempting though it is, Pochettino needs to resist the urge to play Kane in a deeper role when either Adebayor or Soldado play up front. Instead he needs to be rested, either on the bench, in case of emergencies, or at home with his feet up.

Defoe Lurks After Spurs Roar Back Despite Defensive Discord

Attention shifts to the Saturday's match with Sunderland, a game Spurs must win to get the league campaign back on track. The Black Cats look just the sort of side that Spurs should sweep aside especially as they have found it very hard to get goals this season... Defoe tends to score on his debuts. If he does so on Saturday, we can expect the most muted of celebrations.

Time for Spurs to Cash in on Townsend

Looking at Townsend's performance on Saturday it's very hard to understand how he has leapfrogged Aaron Lennon in the wingers' queue. In fact, apart from an emphatically converted penalty at a crucial point in the Chelsea game, it's difficult to think of anything good Townsend has done for some time now.

Tottenham Improve While Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United Stutter

An away win at high flying Swansea, an emphatic cup quarter final victory over Newcastle and, finally, the defeat of a lowly premier league team at home after the debacles against Stoke, West Brom and Palace have meant that Christmas has arrived slightly ahead of schedule for Tottenham fans.

Spurs Torch Toon Hopes Amid Qatari Takeover Talk

Harry Kane scored and was once again Tottenham's stand out performer in the 4-0 victory over Newcastle... A trip to a Wembley final for the first time in six years beckons and only a failure to wrestle three points from Burnley on Saturday can spoil Christmas now.

Eriksen the Key as Tottenham Continue Unlikely Progress

Somehow, despite all the moaning, the turgid play, the ordinary players, Franco Baldini, Poch's accent and the small pitch, Spurs are just four points off the top four, two points behind Arsenal, three clear of Liverpool and still in all the cups. But without Eriksen, the picture would be a good deal less rosy.
