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

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

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…

Tactical Analysis
3 ways Arsenal can defeat Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley
09:00 Friday 9th February 2018

Despite being known as Arsenal’s inferior, younger sibling, Tottenham has seemingly come of age in recent seasons. Last season they finished above the Gunners and since Mauricio Pochettino took over the reins, there’s been a subtle…
