Cartilage Free Captain - Fri Sep 1 10:00 PM
Curses are totally a thing, you guys. HEY EVERYONE GUESS WHAT DAY IT IS TODAY GO ON, GUESS DID YOU GUESS SEPTEMBER 1 BECAUSE IT TOTALLY IS Yes, that’s Tottenham Hotspur ’s Harry Kane , he who is contractually obligated not to score in the month of August, firing home a shot while wide-open in the...

You thought it was over? It will never be over. In what should probably be considered a huge surprise considering all the words typed about it, Tottenham Hotspur did NOT end up purchasing Everton ’s Ross Barkley on deadline day. That’s funny enough. What actually happened — Everton completing a m...
Cartilage Free Captain - Fri Sep 1 3:33 PM
Prediction: a run on Llorente kits at the club shop. (I’m tempted too!) It’s hard to come down from the transfer window. I’m still, as Harry Kane would put it, “buzzing.” But as I went to bed on Thursday night, there was one question still rattling around in my brain: What will Fernando Llorente’...
Cartilage Free Captain - Fri Sep 1 2:58 PM
A walk town Tottenham Hotspur memory lane! The transfer window has closed, and we’ve already noted all the Tottenham Hotspur players who have made moves either in or out this summer. But keep in mind that the La Liga window doesn’t close until today, so there’s the potential for some last-minute...
Cartilage Free Captain - Fri Sep 1 7:00 AM
That was fun? So I know that Marcelo Bielsa basically destroyed Fernando Llorente’s body and that the big Spanish target man has been a much more limited player in recent years. And I know he’s 32. I think I’m still talking myself into this though? It could be that yesterday ended in more amusing...
Cartilage Free Captain - Fri Sep 1 1:55 AM
A curious move, to say the least The final bit of business for Tottenham Hotspur on deadline day appears to be a deal that materializes into nothing. With Fernando Llorente coming to Spurs today , it seemed that the young Dutch International might be off to Brighton and Hove Albion on a year-long...

Messi with an Afro wants to fight for his place. The transfer window has slammed shut, and Marcus Edwards is still a Tottenham Hotspur player.

WELP Andre Gomes was supposed to be the break-glass-in-case-of-emergency midfield signing for Tottenham Hotspur , but it looks like that might not happen after all, if you believe Guillem Balague. I have been told by @HelenaCondis that André Gomes will not leave Barcelona in this transfer window....
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Aug 31 10:45 PM
Hahahahahaha I don’t even know Did you really think it was over? THIS SAGA NEVER ENDS. The last we heard from Ross Barkley he was the subject of a £25m bid from Chelsea as they were either trying to scoop up a cheap English midfielder with potential, or just screwing with Tottenham Hotspur . Spur...

Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Aug 31 9:34 PM
That sure looks like him! It’s been quiet on the home front for a few hours now, and since there are just over two hours to go in the transfer window that tends to make us Tottenham Hotspur bloggers a little jumpy. So imagine my surprise when this suddenly hit my timeline: that'll be llorente the...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Aug 31 6:47 PM
Swansea won’t let Llorente go until they have his replacement in the squad. It’s been quite for a couple of hours with regards to the Fernando Llorente situation, but apparently there’s a reason for that: Swansea aren’t willing to let him go until they’re sure that Llorente’s replacement is signe...

Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Aug 31 8:02 AM
This is hopefully not the biggest news of the day. It’s the first news of Transfer Deadline Day, even if it’s not the most impactful. A week after we wrote that England U-17 and Manchester City academy player Jadon Sancho wanted a move to Tottenham Hotspur , the Mirror is now saying that the 17-y...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Aug 31 7:27 AM
The dumbest day of the year is here. The good news is that this incredibly dumb, annoying, stupid summer is almost over. The bad news is it’s transfer deadline day. The good news is it looks like Chelsea is going to be extremely dumb and pip us to Ross Barkley. The bad news is our best viable tra...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Aug 31 2:48 AM
Unfortunately the other two are Chelsea and Barcelona. If there’s one thing we know Tottenham Hotspur needs, it’s another good wide attacking midfielder. Riyad Mahrez fits the bill, but this has been more wishcasting than anything else. But maybe not? Reports are coming out that Riyad Mahrez is l...

Cartilage Free Captain - Wed Aug 30 7:56 PM
One was rejected for being too expensive, and the other for not being good enough. This isn’t a transfer rumor. Really, it’s more of an ANTI-transfer rumor that you can potentially use to get irrationally angry with the window (assuming you’re not already). According to the Independent, which is...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed Aug 30 7:26 PM
Guess what: the Twossa rumors are back! We are entering into that time of the transfer window where rumors come thick and fast. Many of them will not pan out. But some will!

Did anyone ask Sonny if he approved this transfer? Quick hoddle today due to a busy work day for me and a busier evening. But I do have some links: ESPN3 is going to be streaming League One matches in the USA this weekend. NBC Sports is in talks to get a Premier League Pass deal set up with bars...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed Aug 30 5:21 AM
Someone’s gotta do it Wheeler Dealer Radio is back baby! Unfortunately we have to talk about the Burnley match. Spurs were pretty mediocre and then we conceded a stupid goal. Thankfully after we finish with that we get to talk about the transfer market which isn’t upsetting at all. Oh well at lea...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed Aug 30 1:56 AM
Well he didn’t say he’s NOT leaving either. Vincent Janssen isn’t heavily linked with a departure from Tottenham Hotspur before the end of the transfer window , but that doesn’t mean he might not yet go.

Let’s look at how the team is adapting to life after Kyle Walker. We’ve now had two games with a fit Kieran Trippier starting at right back for Spurs and a few trends have already emerged.

Spurs got sucker-punched on Sunday. So we’ll rank the players to suckers. Who doesn’t love a good sucker? (That’s “lolly” to you Brits.) Dum Dums have been a staple of children’s sugar intake in the United States since 1924 and are now essentially part of American popular culture. The name has no...

He’s not a Spurs player yet, but he almost certainly will be, and Tottenham’s manager is the reason why. Argentina U20 center back Juan Foyth hasn’t yet finalized his transfer to Tottenham Hotspur , but that announcement is looking more and more likely as time ticks by. It’s well-enough along tha...

xG says we’re OK so let’s just stick to that OK? So far this season we’ve beaten Newcastle and Burnley comfortable according to xG and narrowly lost to Chelsea.
