Lamela shows he’s no flop with wonder goal. (video)

Posted on October 24, 2014 by Guest Writer

His first year in London was disppointing to say the least, after Tottenham invested a huge some of money on a young prodigy the knives were soon out and he was declared a flop almost immediately. Erik Lamela at just 21 years of age became one of the clubs most expensive signings, with add-ons, if conditions are achieved, he will be the record signing. Harshly he was written off despite his inexperience, inability to speak the language and due to the fact that he was just setting out on a new career in 3rd  country within just a couple of years, some forget that at such a tender age he had only just broken into the River Plate team when he was snapped up and whisked off to Italy, a little over a year later and he headed to the Premier League.

It is probably fair to say that a huge percentage of Tottenham supporters have remained convinced that Lamela is a tremendous talent with the potential to become a great player, speed of thought and of feet is only surpassed by the very best players in Europe, we know he is far from being the finished article but age and inexperience  is all that is holding him back at the moment, for now he seems to be enjoying his football and more importantly working hard for the team.

Tonight Tottenham take on Asteras Tripolis in the Europa League, hopefully it will be a memorable occasion both in terms of the performance and result, but tonight is not just about the Tottenham team of today but it will be an opportunity to remember a true great from our past and one of the men that put Tottenham firmly on the map and in the record books. Bill Nicholson joined the club as a 16-year-old on the 16th March 1936 and a couple of years later he signed professional papers committing himself to Tottenham for what turned into a lifetime of involvement with the club.

In 1939 on the outbreak of war he joined up and did not return to the club for a further 7 years, it cost him a large chunk of his career but he returned and became an important part of the team which won the title in 1951, that year he won his only international cap scoring a goal after just 19 seconds before giving way to a certain Billy Wright in the England team.

How will Spurs lineup tonight?

Posted on October 23, 2014 by Eddie S

Hopefully we shall start to see a starting lineup not so significantly different to the team associated with league fixtures at the weekend, it is surely time for a decent level of continuity rather than nine or more changes. Of course it is necessary for squad players to play in order to gain real match fitness and in some cases for the new boys to come to terms with their new club and the premiership. After a couple of draws it is now essential that Tottenham get back to winning ways in Europe, three points tonight are essential as failure is staring us in the face if we fail to win this fixture.

We were informed that Hugo Lloris returned from international duty carrying a slight injury and so it makes perfect sense to bring in Michel Vorm for tonight’s fixture, with the likelihood that Younes Kaboul will be rested to allow Fazio to continue, particularly as he is suspended for the coming league fixture following his red card, then that surely means that Adebayor will be chosen to lead the team out, further ensuring that Roberto Soldado then has the opportunity to continue to build upon last Saturday’s impressive showing.

Time for West Ham to cough up for the Olympic Stadium.

Posted on October 22, 2014 by Random Spurs Supporter

It’s a bit rich to expect the taxpayers of London to fund the stadium alterations needed to make the Olympic Stadium suitable for West Ham to use for the next 99 years, the total bill once completed will comfortably exceed a total of £600m after the initial building cost of approx.£450m is increased by the refitting costs of £154m of which West Ham are being asked to contribute just £15m!  The latest news to hit the headlines now informs us that an additional £40m is required as a result of complications that have arisen in extending the roof.

Coming just a few weeks after Karen Brady and the owners of the East London club stated that they would veto any attempt by Tottenham to loan the stadium for a season you must surely question the arrangement and West Ham must be asked to contribute more, they have a valuable asset as they will maximise their profits when disposing of their existing stadium.

It’s Tottenham Lads

Posted on October 22, 2014 by Scraggs

When I read Roy Keane’s comment my immediate reaction was to be angry and to see the comment as yet another cheap dig at Tottenham, of course it is that as well as a tiny insight into the methods and ability of a great manager. Of course I’m sure that Manchester United won’t be using the phrase anytime soon when they face Tottenham after suffering from a run of poor results against them over the past 2 season, unfortunately the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City and even Liverpool and Arsenal  probably can.

How are last seasons top 7 progressing?

Posted on October 21, 2014 by Eddie S

With 8 games already played it’s time to take a look at how last seasons top 7 teams are faring, some had pretensions of challenging for the title, whilst others would simply be content to finish in the top 4 at this stage of their development, all of them are hoping for some sort of silverware of course. As is always the case a couple of teams are gate crashing the party and performing far better than could ever be envisaged and it would come as no surprise if a new contender for the top 7 emerged this season.

Tottenham in the news. Podolki and Szczesny to replace Soldado and Lloris!

Posted on October 21, 2014 by Guest Writer

Quite apart from the ridiculous reports of some sort of embarrassing performance up at the Etihad, reports so distant from the truth and oblivious to the shortcomings of officials that contributed to our demise, that the authors should be taken to task as to whether they actually witnessed the event. Other recent reports in the media range from the hilarious to the ridiculous, while others are a little more encouraging and give an insight into the thoughts and ambitions of some of our players.

Yet again there is wild speculation that Tottenham are preparing a £10m bid for a striker from Arsenal, now when you think of an Arsenal striker it could only be Olivier Giroud he is the only specialist striker that they have, so when you delve further into the story the fact that it is Podolski is simply hilarious. in all honesty we would be better off playing Tom Carroll up front rather than a player struggling to get a game, with just 56 appearances since joining the club, many of them as a substitute, and with the goals drying up the idea that Tottenham might invest highly in him is laughable. Hell might as well freeze over before we would accept him at our club.

Is Jamie Redknapp fit to give opinion on football matters?

Posted on October 20, 2014 by Random Spurs Supporter

Just like last year and the year before that the media are on the back of Tottenham, again it’s the same old ringleaders, you know the ones, those with a grudge against Tottenham. Ex-Arsenal and Liverpool players that have infiltrated every football channel and show on TV and the football pages of almost all newspapers. On a daily basis some so called expert or other jumps on the bandwagon in an effort to destabilise the supporters of Tottenham,

Predictions game 8.

Posted on October 19, 2014 by Eddie S

Well I managed to get four of yesterdays results correct but could not have been more wrong when predicting the Southampton v Sunderland result, after watching a relatively toothless Southampton a couple of weeks back at White Hart Lane it is hard to explain now just where that result came from. Though the game between City and Tottenham was one of the most exciting for 70 minutes credit has to go to West Ham who now have a team to be proud of and a couple of strikers to be envied.

Perspective:City defeat should not disguise a good performance.

Posted on October 19, 2014 by Scraggs

On the face of it a 4-1 defeat suggests yet another dismal Tottenham display against Manchester City but I and many other Tottenham supporters did not quite see it that way and nor should any of us. We travelled to the Etihad Stadium in the knowledge that we had conceded eleven goals against the Champions of England just last season, six on that away visit, nobody gave us much of a chance and yet for almost 70 minutes of what was a thrilling encounter Tottenham were in the match every step of the way and contributed an equal number of efforts on the City goal.
