A bit of a ramble. Hi, Hoddlers! Let’s talk about an old rumor. Ramble of the Day I’m sure a few of may remember, but former Tottenham boss André Villas-Boas was recently mentioned in the same sentence as Borussia Dortmund.

One Ajax defender goes out, and another comes in. The Toby Alderweireld transfer saga loomed ominously over the second half of the season.

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.

Cartilage Free Captain - Mon May 14 3:46 PM
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.

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

Cartilage Free Captain - Sun May 13 6:10 PM

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

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?

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.

Cartilage Free Captain - Thu May 10 9:07 AM
Now that the bedwetting is over, let’s talk pots shall we?

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...
