Cartilage Free Captain - Mon Sep 18 8:18 PM
That match was anything but yummy. Ugh. Tottenham Hotspur dominated Swansea City in every possible metric on Saturday except in one key stat: balls-in-net. Tottenham ground their way to a hugely frustrating 0-0 draw at Wembley against an opponent that was set up to frustrate, block, and prevent s...

Good morning Spursland! No, your eyes do not deceive you- ‘tis really I, Cartilage Free Captain’s erstwhile token Englishman Edward F.

We love our curvy (former) striker. Vincent Janssen was unceremoniously dumped by Tottenham Hotspur for the Turkish hinterlands on the last day of the Turkish Super Lig transfer window, heading to Fenerbahce on a season long loan. In some ways this loan was a litmus test for how you feel about ou...

Only two matches today. But boy, are they doozys! I’m still mad. This is a scheduled post, but at the time of writing, a good eight hours after Tottenham Mike Dean’d their way to a scoreless draw against Swansea, I still find myself grinding my molars thinking about that match. But no matter, the...

Spurs’ boss said the match official “had a not good afternoon.” Pretty much. Lots of people connected with Tottenham Hotspur had bad days, but the one person who came out of Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Swansea looking the worst was probably match official Mike Dean. Where once it was joked that Dean...

Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Sep 14 7:00 AM
It’s safe to celebrate now, right? So last season I had a hard time getting into the Champions League because we had a weak group and I missed the first two games due to work and by then we were already in deep trouble. It was probably the low point of my Spurs year, given how infrequently we get...

Match day one is here. Well, the Champions League is back. And for the first time ever, we’re competing in it for the second consecutive year.

Nike gives Spurs a camo third kit that’s exactly the same as all their other teams’ third kits. We’ve wondered for a while now why Tottenham Hotspur haven’t released their third kits for 2017-18.
