After Guffawing Their Way Out Of Upton Park, Spurs Fans Face Sober Reflection

Every football fan knows that the best route to a derby victory is the one that inflicts the most dismay and humiliation on the opposition... only thing that we can be reasonably certain of right now is that Pochettino's preferred eleven, when it settles down in the autumn, will bear little resemblance to Saturday's line up.

Big Season for Lamela

Jamie Currie

He is Tottenham's club-record signing, but his first season at White Hart Lane didn't go to plan for himself or the club... he's yet to get off the mark goalscoring wise in competitive action, he certainly has a point to prove - not only to the fans but maybe even to himself as next season fast approaches.

Back Spurs to Win the Premier League

Nobody is talking about Tottenham as title contenders. You might argue that no one ever does but in recent years they've been considered pre-season dark horses at least... Tottenham have a squad rich in quality and depth and they're adding to it with a bit more care and precision than they did last summer.

Team Focus: Spurs' Summer Movements Match Pochettino's Needs

Spurs may not be throwing the money around like they did last summer, but they are solidifying key areas, while trimming the fat off a squad that needed to be cut down... The north London side have spent wisely so far as the new boss strives to improve them defensively and the players brought in seem to adequately match the needs of the Argentine.

Adebayor Proving His Worth Under Sherwood

Perhaps André Villas-Boas' biggest mistake as Tottenham head coach was to not utilise Emmanuel Adebayor. The Togolese has previously been recognised as a disruptive dressing room influence, yet, under the stewardship of Tim Sherwood, has shown why he deserves a starting spot at White Hart Lane.

Andre Villas-Boas: Manager of the People

Tristan Cross | Posted 05.03.2014 | UK Sport
Tristan Cross

I like Andre Villas-Boas because he's just some guy, like me. He isn't your usual model of seasoned ex-pro, having already enjoyed a playing career unobtainable to us footballing incompetent hoi-polloi, then becoming doubly enviable with their next career move upstairs. He is just some guy who managed to become a football manager.

Were Spurs and West Brom Right to Sack AVB and Steve Clarke?

This past weekend cost two notable Premier League managers their jobs, with Andre Villas Boas's sacking from Spurs being the most high-profile. The Portuguese manager got the axe on Monday morning after his Tottenham side slumped to a thumping 5-0 mauling at the hands of Liverpool in front of their own White Hart Lane faithful on Sunday afternoon.

A Jewish Perspective on the Y-Word Debate

The Y-word debate is once more encompassing the footballing community. To opponents of its usage, it is an abhorrent term that never should have found its way into match-day vocabulary. Contrastingly, advocates of the term contend that language is understood in context, not just one word. As such, chanting 'yid army' does not equate to condoning anti-Semitism.

Time to Choose a Football Team

At primary school, boys in my class would come to verbal and physical blows over it. It left me perplexed, that level of identification. "We" didn't thrash you at the weekend, Arsenal did. You had nothing to do with it as far as I can tell. You aren't Arsenal, or Man City, or whoever. Now that I'm older I can recognize the thought process behind identifying yourself with a larger group. And so it makes sense to me that fans should feel such a way, even if I don't feel it... yet.

All Quiet on the Deadline Day Front for Spurs

The final day bedlam wasn't just reserved for the stewardship of Harold James Redknapp, either, wheeler-dealer extraordinaire. André Villas-Boas was a bold and progressive appointment for Spurs but he, too, was kept sweating in his first window with the club.

Tottenham Hotspur Must Keep Gareth Bale

The likelihood is that Bale will be just as sought after next summer; he will be a more developed player ready to step up to the very highest level; and he will still have many years ahead of him to claim the kind of silverware that teams like Madrid can offer him.

Spurs: Ultimately, What IS the Point of Them?

Spurs have two major problems: the first is that they haven't been Champions since 1961 - a major flaw for a club with any pretensions to size and a place in the forefront of the game. The second problem may be succinctly summed-up as 'Arsenal FC'.

Arsenal can only improve now. With rumoured targets in Stevan Jovetic, Ashley Williams and more, we are finally improving rather than replacing - something Wenger has sought to do for a long time now. This season is yet to be concluded, but boy, am I ready for next season.

Andre Villas-Boas Is A Hot Contender For Manager of the Season

Jack Howes

The virtually unanimous praise of Villas-Boas from Spurs players and even Monday's mass celebration on the touchline show a team that's united, happy and fully behind their manager. Either that or the Spurs squad are more deserving than Daniel Day-Lewis of an Academy Award for good acting at hiding their dislike so well.

Scott Parker Vs the World - Tottenham Star Upgraded to MVP

There's something reassuringly old-fashioned about Scott Parker as a footballer; the unflappable side-parting, the perma-grass-stained knees, the affection for bone-shuddering challenges.

The Hoopla About Hooper

The stats are impressive but much of the transfer hype is based around a striker who is able to do a lot more than just score goals. He is excellent at holding the ball up, linking with other players and positioning himself during counter-attacks.

Why Spurs Can't Afford Another Quiet January Transfer Window

Alex Ferguson routinely pours scorn over the idea of recruitment at this time of year, but he should know more than most that for every Jean-Alain Boumsong or Ricardo Rocha there's a Nemanja Vidić or a Patrice Evra out there waiting to be snaffled up.
