Spurs 3 Stevenage 1 Well that wasn’t exactly the swashbuckle smash’em display I had in mind. We asserted ourselves in the end but it felt like a walk through marshlands in a downpour, losing both boots in the mud, because we left the keys in the car and forgot about having a spare set in […]
Good afternoon. Some will view this piece with contempt based upon my continuous ‘daring’ to point out the ‘frailties’ of what one might refer to as, Arry’s management style. Some will sneer as it’s arguably less than a 50/50 call. But I don’t blog this for any other reason than the quality of the source. […]
Tottenham Hotspur never do anything easily do they? Last nights match didn’t turn out to be the dominant performance I wanted or expected from Spurs. Yes we won and deservedly so in the end but had to endure a spirited display from League One Stevenage for the second time. I am sure it was not […]
After a first half as ragged as the stream I was watching, Spurs muddled through against impressive Stevenage thanks to two superb goals by Jermaine Defoe and a generous referring decision. And that’s good enough for me. Playing lower league teams, that’s the way it so often is. Don’t really know why – something in […]

In a not so surprising announcement from the club today, it was announced that Tottenham winger Gareth Bale would headline the 2013 Tottenham Hotspur fan calendar. Truly the most significant accomplishment in the young players career to date, it is a monumental occasion for the Welsh player, as no Welsh player has headlined a teams […]
Bale Not Sure If Stevenage Penalty Was The Right Call Gareth Bale admitted last night that he was not sure whether the penalty he earned against Stevenage was the right call. Bale, however, was honest on the ruling: ‘I’m not sure it’s a penalty, but I didn’t go down looking for it,’ Bale said. ‘The ref […]
Postmortems are for after death and while Tottenham Hotspur were not eliminated from the FA Cup yesterday, it sure felt like they were about to certain points in the match. Okay, maybe that is exaggerating a bit because even the most pessimistic of Spurs supporters probably felt that the Premier League club would eventually wake […]

Good morning. We won and that is what we call in the trade, a good thing. ‘I want Champions League and the FA Cup.’ said Tottenham supremo Arry Redschnapps in a rare post match interview. You have to wonder what he’s planning to do with either should he achieve this ambition. The team that blazed […]
Tottenham Hotspur survived an early scare to book a FA Cup quarter-final berth after an Emmanuel Adebayor penalty sandwiched between a Jermain Defoe brace was enough to cancel out Joel Byrom’s early penalty.
Spurs advanced to the quarter finals meeting with Bolton the hard way. A shocking first half that really got us worried. No doubt a half time bollocking from Redknapp and a more assured second half performance, with a few wobbles thrown in. Just because it wouldn't be Spurs without them. Disastrous start as Nelsen brought […]
After a disastrous opening 10 minutes, Tottenham Hotspur finally recovered to reach the Quarter Finals of the FA Cup. A determined Stevenage side were eventually shaken off after a Jermain Defoe brace. Dreadful Start Tottenham started the cup tie in the worst possible fashion. Only 4 minutes were on the clock when the Ryan Nelsen, […]
Happy Thursday, Spursland! Literally nothing seemed to go right for the team yesterday other than that we won. Aaron Lennon went out injured, which I know came as a great shock to many, and Daws is likely out for the season with a big injury to his ankle. On the bright side, Gareth Bale secured […]
Katie Price is releasing a swimwear range, and rounded up Ellie, wife of Jermain, and some ex big brother contenstant to help promote it. Ellie wore a cheeky pink and gold spotted number… as you can see for yourself below. Click the images to englarge. Full story on the Mail Online here. Bikini wax not […]
Sadly, but unsurprisingly, Michael Dawson is facing a lengthy layoff after suffering an injury in Tottenham Hotspur’s FA Cup win over Stevenage on Wednesday. The central defender went down early in the match and was taken to the hospital. After the match Harry Redknapp confirmed that Dawson would be out for a while. “Unfortunately we […]
Things were a bit ugly in the opening minutes for Tottenham Hotspur, but they recovered nicely and played very well in the final 65 minutes of the game after a poor opening 35. Spurs are on their way to the quarterfinals of the FA Cup with a 3-1 replay win over Stevenage at White Hart […]
