Cartilage Free Captain - Sat May 12 4:55 PM
Tottenham are *actually* really, really good for a long time now and we should all be over the moon. Sunday’s match still has massive implications for Tottenham Hotspur’s 2018-19 season, but it doesn’t really feel that way. The shock draw of Huddersfield Town and Chelsea opened the door for Totte...
Cartilage Free Captain - Sat May 12 12:49 PM
It’s the best worst thing you’ll watch this year (except for maybe West Ham) Hey Carty Free people! We are definitely and unequivocally a sports blog, which is why we’re giving you an entire open thread about the Eurovision Grand Final today. We’re at the end of the season and there’s no Premier...
Cartilage Free Captain - Fri May 11 8:50 PM
Basically, Poch and Toby will hash everything out after the season ends. There’s only one more date on the fixture calendar — on Sunday, Tottenham Hotspur will close out their season with their final “home” match at Wembley Stadium against Leicester City . With top four guaranteed and everything...
Cartilage Free Captain - Fri May 11 7:22 PM
Spurs’ opponents for the last game of the season are locked in something of an identity crisis. Are their fans asking for too much? The Season In Review For much of this season, it has seemed like every mid-table Premier League team has teetered on the brink of implosion, identity crisis and unex...
Cartilage Free Captain - Fri May 11 4:26 PM
Plus the latest on Harry Winks and Serge Aurier ahead of the Leicester match. Spurs took care of business on Wednesday at Wembley. They secured a spot in the Champions League for next season with one game to spare. That one game isn’t as important as it might’ve been had the result against Newcas...
Cartilage Free Captain - Fri May 11 7:30 AM
Not a lot of videos, but a lot of links. Hey, everyone! It’s time to cap Eurovision week with one last ramble before tomorrow’s Grand Final. Ramble of the Day I was about to say that today’s ramble leans into my specific interests, but that is not exactly unique to my Hoddles. Regardless, I have...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu May 10 8:59 PM
A very bad game with a very good result. You are forgiven if, 24 hours after Tottenham Hotspur banished their demons by beating Newcastle and clinching top four, you are still celebrating. But let’s not pretend that this was an objectively good soccer match. All Premier League matches on Champion...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu May 10 9:38 AM
But not for the reasons you might expect! Mauricio Pochettino was full of praise for his Tottenham Hotspur team after they clinched a top four finish with a 1-0 win over Newcastle United on Wednesday. The win at Wembley Stadium, combined with Chelsea drawing 1-1 at home to Huddersfield, put Spurs...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu May 10 9:07 AM
Now that the bedwetting is over, let’s talk pots shall we? Tottenham Hotspur got the four points they needed Wednesday to secure Champions League football in the 2018/19 season, which will be played in a shiny new stadium in north London. It wasn’t pretty by any stretch of the imagination, but th...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu May 10 8:20 AM
In their last few matches, Spurs were bad in obvious ways. That’s a good thing! By all statistical measures , this is the best Tottenham team of the Pochettino era. Yes, Spurs got closer to winning the title in 2016 and 2017, but the 2018 squad is better, despite our post-Chelsea malaise. It is t...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu May 10 8:02 AM
Finally worked a pun into this thing. Hi, all! Today’s Eurovision ramble is a bit less about laughing at people and more about celebrating some talented people. Ramble of the Day Warning: The videos shared today, and throughout the week in the Hoddle, have strobe lighting. Though the performers t...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed May 9 11:12 PM
Everyone exhale. They did it. Everyone breathe. Tottenham Hotspur faced Newcastle at Wembley Stadium on Wednesday night knowing that with a win and any dropped points by Chelsea in their match against Huddersfield would send them to the Champions League for the third consecutive season. And that’...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed May 9 5:00 PM
Spurs host Toon in a match that could determine where they’ll play their European football in 2018-19. Onward. Tottenham Hotspur have their future in their own hands today as they face Newcastle United at Wembley Stadium in the penultimate match of their Premier League season. Despite the stupid...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed May 9 4:04 PM
And a well deserved win, too. Want some good news ahead of today’s critical match vs. Newcastle today? Christian Eriksen won a monthly Premier League award! Nope, it’s not the Player of the Month award for April, which he was also nominated for -- that went to Crystal Palace ’s Wilfried Zaha. But...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed May 9 2:37 PM
But there’s a new person now negotiating on his behalf: super-agent Mino Raiola. Eighteen year old Ajax defender Matthijas de Ligt is one of Europe’s hottest young center backs and has been prominently linked with a move to the Premier League this summer. Tottenham Hotspur has been closely monito...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed May 9 8:00 AM
Lets keep calm and carry on Tottenham Hotspur control their own destiny for a third place finish, but oh man does it feel like we are a mountain away from that feat. Spurs’ loss coupled with Chelsea’s victory over Liverpool provided Tottenham with a clear path to third, but it also meant that eve...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed May 9 7:30 AM
Another day in the world of Eurovision. Hi, Hoddlers! Vedran Ćorluka’s girlfriend performed in yesterday’s Eurovision semifinal, and she did not qualify for the final. Here’s the music video , and for those located in Europe, here is the geo-blocked performance . (Warning: the video has strobe li...
Cartilage Free Captain - Tue May 8 10:18 PM
“But I understand people want more. We want more. We’re ambitious.” It’s safe to say that not all is right in Tottenham Hotspur -land. The irony is that Spurs need two wins in their last two matches at Wembley Stadium and they will finish in third place above rivals Liverpool and Chelsea , but su...
Cartilage Free Captain - Tue May 8 3:16 PM
The American wingback, once a Spurs player, has settled in Newcastle and is playing well. DeAndre Yedlin probably converted a fair few American football fans to Tottenham Hotspur fandom after he signed for Spurs from Seattle Sounders in January of 2015. However, the speedy right back quickly foun...
Cartilage Free Captain - Tue May 8 2:11 PM
The central midfield situation is starting to look a little bleak. Hey everybody! Tottenham Hotspur have an absolutely critical Premier League match on Wednesday against Newcastle , and the team will be absolutely itching to come back strong after the disappointing loss to West Brom on Saturday....
Cartilage Free Captain - Tue May 8 7:30 AM
Taking a closer look at those Eurovision songs. Hello, all! Here’s a BuzzFeed quiz that will, supposedly, tell us all which one of this year’s Eurovision entries we are . I got Sweden’s “Dance You Off.” Ramble of the Day It was only after I published yesterday’s Hoddle that I realized that not al...
Cartilage Free Captain - Mon May 7 8:11 PM
Nope nope nope nope nope nope nope Tottenham Hotspur played a match of football on Saturday. One thing we can definitely say is that it was most assuredly a football match that happened, complete with players on the field, a match official, and everything. This is the extent of my analysis today....
Cartilage Free Captain - Mon May 7 2:51 PM
Hugo says that everyone’s tired, but Spurs need the mentality to push to the end and clinch Champions League football. Tottenham Hotspur ’s players are still asking questions of themselves in the wake of Saturday’s 1-0 loss to then-Premier League doormats West Bromwich Albion . A win in the match...
Cartilage Free Captain - Mon May 7 8:20 AM
It’s Eurovision week! Hi, everyone! Today begins a week that I have been waiting for since I thought about it the night before my first Hoddle. (This is also the week where I either lose some of you or realize you’re all stuck with me.) Ramble of the Day Other than the Bundesliga’s final match da...
Cartilage Free Captain - Sun May 6 1:35 PM
Or, “How a Tottenham Fan Came to Root for Liverpool” * record scratch * * freeze frame* Yes, that’s me. You’re probably wondering how I ended up in this predicament. It all started after Tottenham lost to bottom of the table West Brom So going into yesterday’s match, I was all Team Draw when it c...
Cartilage Free Captain - Sun May 6 8:15 AM
Kane has clearly not been fully fit since he returned from an ankle injury. His importance to the offense could explain Spurs’ run of poor form. There’s a lot of blame to go around for Tottenham Hotspur ’s 1-0 loss to West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthornes on Saturday. You can blame the players w...
