Musing on a London derby weekend in the Premier League
10:00 Saturday 2nd March 2019

Are Spurs willing to dangle Harry Kane's future over the precipice?
08:00 Friday 22nd February 2019

You’ve been to the cinema. You know what happens when the characters must tread a narrow path cut out of a mountainside. Inevitably, the ground gives way below some poor sod’s feet. He shouts, scrambling madly for a purchase. None…

Can Crystal Palace hurt already wounded Spurs?
08:00 Sunday 27th January 2019

Giant slayers, aren’t they? Well, this would’ve been beyond any question if Crystal Palace would’ve come with at least something at Anfield last weekend. But unfortunately, they lost 4-3 to Liverpool. Despite the loss, there…

Will the North London Derby define the 2018/19 Premier League season?
08:00 Sunday 2nd December 2018

Do you remember the old Bugs Bunny cartoons in which he went up against the Tasmanian Devil? They always began with Bugs tunnelling in from the distance, popping out of the ground and taking a wary look around. "This doesn't look…

Tottenham Hotspur stretching beyond zenith this season
15:00 Tuesday 6th November 2018

It has not been a bad start to the season for Tottenham Hotspur. After 11 Premier League games, Spurs sit in fifth place, five points off leaders Manchester City. Considering their rocky patch in September, things could be worse.  …

How Tottenham Hotspur can throw a spanner in Manchester City’s works
08:00 Monday 29th October 2018

Manchester City is the Manchester United of the 1990 early 2000s. True, the red half remain a multi-billion pound empire. At present, though, they can't compete with their neighbours in regard to wealth, panache, or titles. This…

Tottenham out of sorts? It must be early doors
08:00 Wednesday 26th September 2018

What's going on at White Hart Lane? The construction process is taking longer than expected, much longer. There are reports about the emergency alarms not working, labourers doing coke and what not. The new stadium's construction…

Freedom or the Sword: Son-Heung Min Eyes Emancipation
17:00 Friday 31st August 2018

South Korea obsesses over tradition. Men must serve in the military but winning a gold medal for your country exempts a healthy male from duty. Son Heung-min's almost there.  The Asian Games is the continental Olympics. Countries compete…

Premier League Preview: Tottenham still not spending, not spent either
09:00 Tuesday 7th August 2018

Tottenham Hotspur’s last campaign can be viewed from two perspectives. In one sense, they regressed, taking fewer points, scoring fewer goals,  conceding more. In another, the Lilywhites over-performed, punching above their financial…

Three players destined to leave Tottenham Hotspur this summer
20:00 Thursday 10th May 2018

As much as they are lauded for their expansive football, consistency and progression of their English contingent, Tottenham still have not won a trophy since 2008. Because they’ve been able to transition from a top six side, to a top…

Why you shouldn't hate on Tottenham if they don't win a trophy this season
09:00 Monday 16th April 2018

Call me biased; I don't care. Tottenham's performances at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea and at Wembley versus Manchester City were equally inspiring even though the scorelines were reversed. Spurs made history when they defeated…

4 clubs that could sign Fulham starlet Ryan Sessegnon
10:00 Wednesday 28th February 2018

It is no exaggeration to say that Fulham's Ryan Sessegnon is among the most promising players in Europe. The 17-year-old broke into the London club's first-team last season at just 16. He has since established himself as an automatic…

Sergio Aguero V Harry Kane: who is better?
18:00 Wednesday 14th February 2018

Before anyone gets into a hissy-fit, both Kane and Aguero I consider world-class. I’m not like Alan Shearer who, last season, said the Argentine was the only world-class player in the league. Harry Kane has hit 20+ goals in…
