Cartilage Free Captain - Mon May 14 8:59 PM
The season is over. We have #takes. The season is over. It’s done and dusted, with Tottenham Hotspur ending the campaign in a more than respectable third place position in the table. Spurs did this while playing all 38 of their games away from Tottenham in north London while construction crews fi...
Cartilage Free Captain - Mon May 14 4:17 PM
We are not geniuses, but we weren’t that far off the end result. Can you believe it’s been nine months since the 2017-18 Premier League season kicked off? Back in August, the Cartilage Free Captain staff compiled our list of predictions on how we thought the season would end up. And then we asked...

Spurs could run out the Double Kieran Formation in 2018/2019. We at Cartilage Free Captain do transfer rumors often, and we do them well. But sometimes it’s worth doing a deeper dive into Tottenham Hotspur ’s transfer targets, what we call Daniel Levy’s Imaginary Shortlist . For this one, we call...
Cartilage Free Captain - Mon May 14 3:02 PM
Kyle Walker-Peters will be a Tottenham player for the next three seasons. Tottenham Hotspur ’s season is over, and this morning we have our first confirmed contract extension of the offseason. Spurs announced this morning on their website and social media that 21-year old fulllback Kyle Walker-Pe...
Cartilage Free Captain - Mon May 14 7:30 AM
I spent way too much time on Twitter for this. Hey, everyone! Eurovision Week is over, and the lady that made the chicken sounds during her song won! Seriously! You know what else is over? Tottenham’s season. Ramble of the Day Let me tell you about a tradition of sorts on the final day of the Pre...
Cartilage Free Captain - Sun May 13 11:33 PM
You can read this a lot of different ways. All of them suggest Spurs do not intend to stand still. Tottenham Hotspur ’s season is over, and with the club now having secured third place thanks to its 5-4 win over Leicester on Sunday, attention is now turning to what comes next. Mauricio Pochettino...
Cartilage Free Captain - Sun May 13 7:43 PM
You’re welcome, guys! Thanks for a great year! In the wake of Tottenham Hotspur ’s thrilling 5-4 win over Leicester City in the final match of the season, Spurs players Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen took to video to thank supporters for watching and cheering for them this season. Dele, in typic...
Cartilage Free Captain - Sun May 13 6:10 PM
That was absolutely ABSURD. Tottenham Hotspur hosted Leicester City in their last home match at Wembley Stadium on Championship Sunday. Spurs knew that a win would propel them into third place ahead of Champions League finalists Liverpool , something that seemed unattainable just a couple of week...
Cartilage Free Captain - Sun May 13 12:22 PM
Spurs play their final “home” game at Wembley for the chance to finish third in the table. Tottenham Hotspur are taking on Leicester City in the final match of the 2017-18 Premier League season. There are a couple of final moments in this match: it’s the last time Spurs will play at “home” at Wem...
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...
