Cartilage Free Captain - Mon Nov 20 9:02 PM
Not all of them were winners. And neither were Spurs. Well, that was ugly. Like, super, seriously ugly. Delete-it-from-the-DVR-and-never-watch-it-again ugly. Tottenham went into the North London Derby at the Emirates on Saturday as favorites, and left as pariahs, limping to a 2-0 loss to the Gunn...
Cartilage Free Captain - Mon Nov 20 8:55 AM
Happy Monday Spursland! A slightly disingenuous opener, perhaps, as no Monday morning that follows a defeat to Arsenal can ever truly be a happy one. Just try to keep in mind that old truism- the class of Dele Alli is permanent, whilst the fitness of Jack Wilshere is extremely temporary. Theme of...

One bad call and one bad no-call changed the entire tenor of the match. Tottenham Hotspur lost to Arsenal in the North London Derby on Saturday, conceding two first half goals in a very disappointing performance at the Emirates Stadium. However, while few would say that Arsenal weren’t the better...
Cartilage Free Captain - Sat Nov 18 3:13 PM
That was bad. Very, very, very bad. Tottenham Hotspur went into the North London Derby at the Emirates today with the perceived advantage — a four point lead over Arsenal in the table, and the sense from everyone that they were the better side. However, Spurs put in an extremely weak performance...
Cartilage Free Captain - Sat Nov 18 9:30 AM
It’s a North London Derby and Tottenham Hotspur are the clear favorites. Are we in the Upside Down? Oh blessed club football, welcome back! I’ve missed you so much. Tottenham Hotspur travel the few short miles down the road to the Emirates to take on their old foes Arsenal for the first time this...
Cartilage Free Captain - Fri Nov 17 6:40 PM
Goodbye internationals breaks, hello North London Derby It feels like ages since Tottenham Hotspur last played, but thats what happens when you support a rip-roaring side. After defeating Real Madrid 3-1 at Wembley, eh hem, after TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR CRUSHED REAL MADRID 3-1 IN THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE A...
Cartilage Free Captain - Fri Nov 17 3:32 PM
A historic transfer of power is eagerly awaited at the Emirates on Saturday. Will it really be a stroll in the park for Tottenham? The Season So Far It’s been a very Arsenal start to the season: there have been comfortable home victories and sumptuous football; there have been devastating away co...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed Nov 8 4:22 PM
Get ready, Gooners. Harry’s comin’. Tottenham Hotspur are a bit banged up here in the short term, with no fewer than six players nursing injuries or knocks since the Champions League win over real Madrid. Victor Wanyama , Hugo Lloris , Michel Vorm , Harry Winks, Harry Kane , and Toby Alderweireld...
Cartilage Free Captain - Sat Nov 4 6:26 PM
In a weekend where Arsenal, City, United, and Chelsea all face off, Spurs host last-placed Crystal Palace in an opportunity to gain points on their rivals. A Harry Kane-less Spurs deserved a draw at Old Trafford and then beat Real Madrid 3-1 at Wembley in the past week. With that win, Tottenham s...
Cartilage Free Captain - Sat Oct 14 12:00 PM
Alas, there’s no Jack Wilshere to boo this time. When Tottenham Hotspur last played Bournemouth, it was one of the last remaining matches at White Hart Lane. Jack Wilshere was on loan with the Cherries, and Spurs were second in the league. Spurs got a goal from Vincent Janssen, injured Jack Wilsh...

Another L for Arsenal as Dele gets a ratings bump. It’s that glorious time of the year once again. FIFA 18 is just around the corner and the ratings blitz has officially begun. EA Sports released the first batch of ratings on Tuesday as the 100-81 ranked players in the game saw their new stats re...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Aug 31 12:53 PM
But there’s now a new dark horse and it’s Arsenal. No, the Ross Barkley to Tottenham Hotspur rumors haven’t gone away, and they don’t seem to be showing any signs of cooling down. The latest rumors still have Barkley leaving Everton before the close of the transfer window, and according to report...
Cartilage Free Captain - Tue Aug 22 7:50 AM
Will this ever stop being funny? No. No, I don’t think it will. Jack Wilshere back in action for Arsenal ressies. Gets himself sent off after an hour. pic.twitter.com/z0D1vQa5Kg — Alan Smith (@alansmith90) August 21, 2017 Other News I love the folks at Howler : Location: Visitors’ Dressing Room a...
Cartilage Free Captain - Mon Aug 14 7:37 AM
Let’s do that again! A recap of match day one: Arsenal won but was ropey as hell defensively. Chelsea had two red cards and lost at home to Burnley. Liverpool proved that they are already in mid-season form, dominating Watford for long stretches but giving up many high quality chances en route to...
Cartilage Free Captain - Sun Aug 6 11:53 AM
The season unofficially kicks off today with a community shield that Spurs supporters will want to fire into the sun. Greetings, earthlings. I know, I know — a how-to-watch thread for a Chelsea-Arsenal match? Menno, what are you thinking? Well, it’s the Community Shield — the unofficial opening o...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Jul 27 7:00 AM
Levy sounds like Arsene Wenger? Not sure if this is master-class trolling or legit, but check out this bit from The Short Fuse . The summary is that as Spurs are in the midst of a stadium project Daniel Levy is saying all the same things that Arsene Wenger said in the early to mid 2000s. What do...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Jul 13 7:46 AM
It’s three at the back for Arsenal. Here’s some interesting pre-season news from our North London neighbors: Arsenal will start the season in the three at the back system they used at the end of last season. Given that I’m not sure this actually made them better last season, I suppose this is wel...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Jul 6 7:26 AM
Arsenal make their move. Yesterday Arsenal confirmed a deal that will have the club pay a club-record €53m transfer fee to sign Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette . On the one hand, this is a good move for them. The underlying stats for Lacazette are strong. He’ll be an upgrade on Olivier Giroud, D...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed Jun 28 7:55 PM
Add this to the rumors of Lemar to Arsenal & Sessegnon staying at Fulham and today has been brutal. Not that the rumors circulating were overly convincing , but Tottenham Hotspur are set to miss out on Carles Aleña, La Masia ’s most prized defender. The nineteen year old extended his contract wit...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed Jun 28 2:31 PM
Why can’t we have nice things? Here’s the latest entry in the Tottenham Hotspur Book of Nice Things We Apparently Can’t Have. If you believe the various reports coming out of the London sports media right now, Arsenal have emerged as favorites to sign Monaco winger Thomas Lemar . Lemar is young,...
Cartilage Free Captain - Mon Jun 26 8:06 AM
Hit the road, Jack. Here’s a funny story to start your day: Arsenal may not be renewing Future Arsenal Manager Jack Wilshere’s contract . Why? Oh, he’s demanding £250, 000 per week. And is also hurt all the time. And is also bad. Also: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Other Summer News Leicester City want to a...
Cartilage Free Captain - Fri Jun 2 3:01 PM
Thomas Lemar is probably leaving Monaco, and now the Gunners are batting their eyes at him too. Tottenham Hotspur are apparently very interested in Monaco’s Thomas Lemar, but don’t let that fact trick you into believing that there won’t be other suitors for the tricky winger. L’Equipe is reportin...
Cartilage Free Captain - Tue May 30 4:08 PM
It sure seems like a nice London club that happened to finish second this year would be a decent destination, doesn’t it? Fire up the transfer rumor klaxon and turn on the Daniel Levy Signal! There’s breaking news from Sky Sports, which understands that Leicester City attacking midfielder Riyad M...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed May 17 7:28 AM
The final day drama is set. Well: The only race of consequence for Championship Sunday is set: Liverpool v Arsenal for top four. Here are the permutations: Liverpool win: Liverpool finishes in top four Liverpool draw, Arsenal win: Arsenal finishes in top four Liverpool loss, Arsenal win: Arsenal...
Cartilage Free Captain - Tue May 16 7:00 AM
Can JD kill Arsenal’s top four hopes? Arsenal’s path to the top four is simple: Win both their remaining games and hope Liverpool drop points against Middlesborough. (There is a path past Manchester City as well, but that seems less likely.) The first obstacle to that route is today’s match with...
Cartilage Free Captain - Fri May 5 2:51 PM
An Arsenal legend talks with a (future) Spurs legend, and it’s super interesting. If you, random Tottenham Hotspur fan, had to pick a person to interview Harry Kane about being a top Premier League striker, you probably wouldn’t have chosen Thierry Henry. The retired Arsenal striker scored 174 go...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed May 3 3:42 PM
Jean Michaël Seri is having a very good season with Nice, and he’s turning a lot of heads. A box-to-box midfielder probably isn’t the top priority for Tottenham Hotspur this summer, but that doesn’t mean that Spurs aren’t looking to bolster their options going into another Champions League season...
Cartilage Free Captain - Tue May 2 2:17 PM
Muppets are the best. So was this North London Derby! Well, wasn’t THAT an exciting North London Derby? Tottenham Hotspur didn’t just beat Arsenal , they rolled over them, winning 2-0, creating a bunch more chances, forcing Petr Cech into nine saves, and banishing St. Totteringham’s Day for the f...
Cartilage Free Captain - Sun Apr 30 9:05 PM
Not much can take the shine off of this incredibly important Spurs win. Tottenham Hotspur defeated their arch-rivals Arsenal 2-0 today in the last-ever North London Derby at White Hart Lane, but there was more at stake today than just finishing above Arsenal for the first time in 22 seasons. Spur...
Cartilage Free Captain - Sun Apr 30 7:31 PM
The Gunners boss apparently got tired of talking about why his team was crap. In the immediate moments after Tottenham Hotspur defeated Arsenal 2-0 in the final North London Derby at White Hart Lane, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger did something I can’t remember him ever doing before: he walked out...
