Cartilage Free Captain - Wed Oct 18 8:08 PM
Rose implied that his controversial comments in The Sun came out of frustration over his injury and rehabilitation. Danny Rose played his first minutes for Tottenham Hotspur in 10 months in yesterday’s Champions League draw against Real Madrid at the Bernabeu. Let’s set aside for a moment the fac...

Spurs showcased tactical nous to earn a point against Real Madrid on a worldwide stage. Tottenham Hotspur proved themselves on the grandest of stages in world football Tuesday night, going toe-to-toe with giants of the game in Real Madrid and coming back from the Spanish capital with a point in h...

As a young lad in Spurs’ academy, Winks got to watch Modric play for the senior team. Yesterday, he got to play against him. If you’re going to single out players not named Hugo Lloris for praise after Tottenham Hotspur ’s 1-1 Champions League draw against Real Madrid at the Bernabeu yesterday, y...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed Oct 18 10:26 AM
How about that? I’m sure you were watching yesterday as Spurs went to the Bernabeu and beat Real Madrid 1-1. It was a gutsy performance from Mauricio Pochettino’s men, who were under pressure for much of the game. The draw wouldn’t have been possible without the heroics of Hugo Lloris between the...

Spurs used some heroic goalkeeping and a fair amount of luck to earn an important point at the Bernabeu. Tottenham Hotspur went to the Bernabeu to face Real Madrid for the first time since the 2010-11 Champions League quarterfinals. Unlike that match, Tottenham didn’t limp home with a 4-0 loss. I...

WE GOT A RESULT! WE GOT A RESULT! AAAAAAHHHHHH! Tottenham Hotspur came into the Bernabeu with a point to prove, and they left the match with another kind of point as well. Spurs knew they had a monumental task ahead of them against the two-time defending European champions Real Madrid. But in a m...

It’s the biggest, most anticipated Champions League match up of this round. Champions League matches don’t get much bigger than this. Tottenham Hotspur are in sunny Spain to take on Real Madrid at the historic Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. Madrid are two time defending European champions and are one...
Cartilage Free Captain - Tue Oct 17 1:49 PM
Oh no biggie, just the current European champions. Tottenham Hotspur ’s Champions League campaign continues later today at the Santiago Bernabéu where current European Champions Real Madrid await them. Spurs and Real sit at the top of their group with 6 points while Borussia Dortmund and APOEL Ni...

Good morning Spursland! So, those of you living in the UK who are active on social meeedja might have noticed that both #apocalypse and #endofdays trended out here on Twitter yesterday. These hashtags were fuelled, as far as I could tell, by three main factors: i) reports of a ‘hurricane’ drawing...

A good font can make or break your project (or your front-of-kit sponsor logo). Tottenham Hotspur won a league game at Wembley Stadium! Rejoice! OK, it wasn’t the BEST of matches. Sure, Harry Kane didn’t score. And fine, Spurs were a miracle reflex save from Hugo Lloris from conceding an own goal...
Cartilage Free Captain - Mon Oct 16 7:54 PM
No, you still can’t have him, Zizou. Gosh, Harry Kane sure gets a lot of accolades lately, doesn’t he? He deserves them, and now he’s getting praise from the manager of Real Madrid, too. Zinedine Zidane was full of praise for the Tottenham Hotspur striker, calling him “a complete player” in a pre...

However, Danny Rose will be on the bench! Earlier today we discovered that injured Tottenham Hotspur players Danny Rose and Mousa Dembele were both in the squad that will play against Real Madrid in the Champions League tomorrow. Now we’ve gotten an official update from the club on who will NOT f...

The Croatian midfielder will face his former club in a meaningful match for the first time since 2012. Gareth Bale won’t be present when Tottenham Hotspur visit the Bernabeu, in the Champions League, but there will be another reunion. Former Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric will face his old club...
Cartilage Free Captain - Mon Oct 16 3:21 PM
But that doesn’t mean they’ll play! Let’s play a fun game called “Guess Who’s Going to Madrid.” It isn’t actually all that difficult — you just look at the official pictures Tottenham Hotspur released on Twitter of players at the airport and try to identify them. Looking in our @NikeUK travel wea...

Happy Monday Spursland! On Saturday, our eternal knight in shining armour Christian Eriksen reminded us that it doesn’t have to be pretty, and it doesn’t have to be memorable- as long as you get the job done, that’s all that matters. I’m sure those of us who are crawling back into work with hango...
Cartilage Free Captain - Sun Oct 15 3:31 PM
Note to Dele: I think Poch was probably kidding. Dele Alli is apparently a difficult guy to love. At least at first! Dele penned a short column in the Sunday Mail today about his relationship with Mauricio Pochettino at Tottenham Hotspur , through a story about his early days meeting the manager...
Cartilage Free Captain - Sun Oct 15 1:30 PM
Get your Sunday off right with some more football. Happy Sunday, Spurs-land. Saturday turned out to be a pretty good day after all, didn’t it? Manchester United and Arsenal both dropped points, Spurs got a good (albeit terse) win over Bournemouth, and are solidly in third place in the table. Of c...
Cartilage Free Captain - Sat Oct 14 7:01 PM
Spurs’ starting (only!) left back missed the win over Bournemouth with an illness. Ben Davies missed Tottenham Hotspur ’s 1-0 win over Bournemouth today with an unspecified illness. That wasn’t really a problem, per se — Davies has been kind of run into the ground already in the early goings of t...
Cartilage Free Captain - Sat Oct 14 5:32 PM
We won a league match at Wembley ZOMG!! Tottenham Hotspur finally buried the Wembley Curse today, scoring just 90 seconds into the second half to defeat Bournemouth 1-0 at Wembley Stadium. Christian Eriksen got the goal in what was a pretty pedestrian affair on balance, but it was a huge three po...

Simple but effective. Eriksen and Spurs on the board pic.twitter.com/VvXUxvhtv2 — SpursWorldwide (@SpursWorldwide) October 14, 2017 After a forgettable first half at Wembley, Tottenham Hotspur have taken the lead against Bournemouth thanks to Christian Eriksen’s third league goal of the season. S...

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...
Cartilage Free Captain - Fri Oct 13 9:17 PM
You mean he wasn’t kidding? So a couple of weeks ago Pep Guardiola caused a bit of a kerfluffle in the Tottenham Hotspur media when he referred to Tottenham as “the Harry Kane team who scores every game two or three goals.” The comment came while referencing other teams that could potentially cha...
Cartilage Free Captain - Fri Oct 13 5:46 PM
Tottenham Hotspur play Bournemouth or, from an American perspective, a reason to take a step back from the footballing ledge. How long do midseason international breaks take? Supporters are always prepared for the post deadline day national team duties, but my goodness it feels like an age since...

Eddie Howe’s Cherries are struggling this season, and they look to be in real trouble. The Season So Far For Eddie Howe and his beloved Bournemouth, this has been a strenuous and unpromising start to the campaign: five defeats in the first seven, with only four goals scored, and with their only v...
Cartilage Free Captain - Fri Oct 13 3:45 PM
Who could’ve seen THIS coming?! In what is no doubt a COMPLETELY SHOCKING AND TOTALLY UNEXPECTED ANNOUNCEMENT, the Premier League announced today that Harry Kane was the recipient of the EA Sports Premier League Player of the Month award for September. Kane was the only logical choice after the m...
Cartilage Free Captain - Fri Oct 13 3:45 PM
In practical terms, there are no squad changes from Spurs’ last league match. Team news is out for Tottenham Hotspur ’s return to Premier League action this Saturday against Bournemouth, and it’s about what you’d expect. Spurs welcomed long-time absentees Danny Rose and Erik Lamela back to full t...

Happy Friday Spursland! We’re kicking the Hoddle off with a bit of a throwback tune today on the theme of ‘plans’, because I want to hear yours for this weekend. Me? I’m going to an origami class and drinking loads of oat milk lattes like the unabashed metropolitan hipster I am. How about your go...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Oct 12 11:03 PM
Spurs are within striking distance of breaking the old record of 76, 098 set by Manchester United. There could be another record broken at Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday. One year after smashing British attendance records at Wembley Stadium for Champions League matches, Spurs could break the all-t...

Happy Spursday, Spursland! We are now mere days from the return of club football and the narrative-fest that will be Spurs v Bournemouth. Will the Wembley curse that has plagued our league campaign thusfar finally be broken? Will JD Trouble celebrate when he inevitably scores against us? Will Ada...
