This whole Arry Redschnapps England manager impasse business is beginning to bug me. So perhaps a good juncture to ask supporters what they actually think. The mood in the camp is I believe to be extremely mixed. The Arry haters have taken the whole situation as a free gift. A golden opportunity to mutter, ‘get… Read more »

On the field you're dedicated, strong and lead by example. Your attitude, personality and effort resonates through the team and improves everyone's performance. It's why us Spurs… Read more »
Tottenham’s Scott Parker has been selected by Stuart Pearce to captain England in the friendly international against Holland at Wembley. He is the tenth Tottenham player to have led the England team, following in the footsteps of such payers as Alf Ramsey, Alan Mullery, Martin Peters, Gary Lineker and Ray Clemence. Scott Parker, the new… Read more »
Way way back before Spurs started playing total football, before Adebayor revealed a hidden personality as a workhorse second striker, and before I knew what I was talking about when it came to our squad this season, I argued in the summer of 2011 that it was in Spurs interest to attempt to lure Joey… Read more »
Scott Parker to Captain England vs. Holland Great news for Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Scott Parker, as he has been chosen by Interim Manager Stuart Pearce to captain England against Holland tonight.
Premier League players have the occasional (sometimes not occasional) dalliance with prostitutes. Cue the faux surprise and outrage. Without getting into a whole moral discussion on prostitution, let’s consider the idea of athletes with paid sexual entrepreneurs. Some people would like to be a professional athlete because of the fame, money or even the love… Read more »
Arsenal performed a stunning comeback from 2-0 to ensure they remained firmly in the hunt for the Champions League places after Louis Saha and Emmanuel Adebayor struck earlier for Tottenham Hotspur.
Good evening. The old late shift and a mug of Horlicks. You can’t whack it you know. There were some interesting Tweets flying about today as well a mention on the Beeb and now it’s confirmed that Jose Mourinho was indeed in London today. Up West [pics] and it is heavily suggested that the purpose of… Read more »
Sibs and the maths of Tottenham. Played 26Won 16 Win rate = 61.54% 61.54% of 38= 23(.4) games won23 wins = 69 points 61.54% of 114 = 70.2 points This should be a fourth place finish. However obviously the teams below are playing at a lower win rate (logically) – so as it stands it… Read more »
Been a while, hasn’t it? Anything happened?Well, yes, loads, obviously. There was that ridiculous see-saw game with City, the bore draw with Liverpool, Redknapp told the world he couldn’t read or write, but was cleared of swerving tax payments, Capello quit, Harry was suddenly in the frame rather than being framed, and we knocked seven… Read more »

What a match for everyone to be having an off day. Play well all season only to decide that in the North London Derby to leave their collective footballing brains at home. A bright start and some shocking Arsenal defending saw us open the scoring inside the first five minutes. From that moment, Arsenal dominated… Read more »
The lasting effects of this horrible slaughter could reverberate down the years. Not because of the score – we’ve shipped five against them before and we’ll do so again in my lifetime. Not even because the top two have left us far behind in their wake. No, it’s because after this, how we can trust… Read more »
Follow me on Twitter – @WindyCOYS. You can also hear me on The Fighting Cock podcast. Sagna’s goal – after van Persie hits the post, Arsenal keep possession through Gibbs, and Sagna moves with intent to power home a header from an Arteta cross. Robin van Persie’s shot comes off the post, and Gibbs is… Read more »
Eesh. That was just unpleasant. If that’s us making progress then I must say it sounds awfully overrated. The more things change the more they stay the same; Arsenal dish out a good old-fashioned schooling at The Emirates and the horrors of yesteryear come flooding back like a burst sewage pipe in your living room….

It was one of those games where Spurs look like the best team in England. The opposition were lowly Wigan Athletic, but we killed them nonetheless. Gareth Bale opened the scoring after half an hour. Luka Modric crossed, Bale took the ball on his chest and got his leg high with the flexibility of a… Read more »
Well now that hurt didn’t it? After going 2-0 up at the Emirates, you would have thought it was going to be a day to remember for Spurs. Well all Spurs fans are going to remember this game, but for all the wrong reasons. The Gunners have been having their worst ever season under Arsene… Read more »
Jimmy Robertson Who has scored for both Spurs and Arsenal in a North London derby? Emmanuel Adebayo Until Sunday this question had only one answer but Emmanuel Adebayor’s penalty against Arsenal meant that he joined Jimmy Robertson as only the second player to score a goal for both Tottenham and Arsenal in a North London… Read more »
Happy Humpday Spursland! Today we cover the continuing trend of the asskissery Spurs have been encountering around the EPL in the last week. I know I am not alone in feeling weird about it so do us a favor other clubs, if you don’t have anything mean and contrived to say about us, please keep… Read more »
Czech Republic Dealt A HurriKane Strike In U-19 Friendly Who cares that England couldn’t beat the Czech Republic in a U-19 friendly (or any team in any youth friendly). Harry Kane scored. Tottenham prevails. I will not hear differently.
Interesting news broke this morning, as Tottenham Hotspur right back Adam Smith, currently on loan with Leeds United, was returned to Tottenham Hotspur. The move comes as Kyle Walker pulled out of the England squad with an ankle injury. The move seems to signal the Walker injury is worse than initially feared by the Spurs… Read more »
If you’re wondering why no one posted this yesterday, it’s because I was still kind of mad at Scott Parker. If you listened to the podcast, you know that Brian Mechanick is still mad at Scott Parker. But now I’m over the Arsenal game and ready to move on. Because of that, I am happy… Read more »
A rough episode here, as he have to go through Tottenham’s collapse against Arsenal. This episode is heavy on the tactical analysis, player reviews, and general commiserating after the pain which was this North London Derby. Warning, RAF Captain Scott Parker comes out none too well from this one. A lot of breakdowns come on… Read more »
Happy Tuesday Spursland! Why is there en exclamation point on the end of that greeting? Nothing is ever good about Tuesdays that doesn’t involve Dominos. As some of you may have noticed that positivity that I found during the fall and winter has been completely shattered by the North London Derby. Allow me to reintroduce… Read more »
A chart of Tottenham Hotspur’s results relative to the hairstyle of Benoit-Assou Ekotto from fan blog There’s Only One Tottenham Hotspur, which I now encourage all of you to frequent.
In the aftermath of the debacle at the Emirates, some moved quickly to lay the blame for Tottenham’s loss on Harry Redknapp. The tactics left the team at a numerical disadvantage in the center and the team was shockingly narrow, never really threatening Arsena’s outside backs. Toss in the curious substitutions and decision to make… Read more »

And it was all going so well. Thirty-five minutes in, and whilst Spurs may not have been dominating the game, we found ourselves two goals to the good and seemingly set for a half-time lead. Sadly, conceding 5 goals in 27 minutes either side of half time was a collapse not even the most optimistic… Read more »
One of the best matches of the Premier League season ended 5-2, as Arsenal sensationally came back from two goals down to beat their North London rivals. It was an alarmingly open game, and not the first time this season [...]Written by Nishaad RaoBatt…
In case you may have missed it this morning, it could soon be all hotdogs and popcorn at White Hart Lane if you indulge yourself in the latest speculation linking the club with a takeover lead by American entertainment giants AEG. The Express this morning ‘exclusively’ revealed that AEG lead by Philip Anschutz has been… Read more »
