Cartilage Free Captain - Tue Aug 21 9:17 PM
Gotta love that optimistic enthusiasm. Lucas Moura has been given a big chance in Tottenham Hotspur ’s starting lineup via the absence of Son Heung-Min, and he’s ready to grab onto it with both hands. Speaking to ESPN Brazil (via Sport Witness) , the former PSG winger has said that not only is he...

An aging player moves from starter to reliever - wait, what site is this? In 1987, after a quite solid ten-plus year career as a starting pitcher for three major league baseball teams, Dennis Eckersley abruptly changed careers at age 31. Well, he still continued to throw baseballs for a living, i...

Well, that explains a few things, doesn’t it? Tottenham Hotspur have been unsuccessful in trying to find a new club for striker Vincent Janssen, and despite turning over numerous rocks it’s been difficult to find another opportunity for the £17m signing. Now perhaps we know why. Spurs tweeted thi...

Kick-start your morning with a little Texas Thai funk. Hey there, Hoddlers! It’s Tuesday, which means only six more days until Tottenham Hotspur play another match. Today’s Song of the Day is actually more like a Concert of the Day, but it’s totally worth it. This is another band that I discovere...
Cartilage Free Captain - Mon Aug 20 7:31 PM
No big shocks here, unfortunately. We all assumed this would happen, but now it’s been made official — Tottenham Hotspur announced via their official website that their first home match in the 2018-19 Champions League has been moved to Wembley Stadium . This comes, of course, on the heels of the...

Nice one, Sonny! South Korea’s U23 squad came into today’s Asian Games match against Kyrgyzstan knowing that thanks to an extremely football’d loss to Malaysia they’d need at least a draw to secure escaping their group. They got more than that, thanks to the best player at the tournament and the...

The American could be spending another season in the Championship. The transfer deadline has come and gone in England. Players can no longer make permanent moves between clubs, but the window for loans doesn’t close until the end of the month. Thus, now is the time when Spurs will attempt to loan...
Cartilage Free Captain - Mon Aug 20 9:08 AM
Spurs were good! Doritos are also good! I’m not one for hyperbole, but Doritos are the best flavored tortilla chips ever made, full stop. Honestly, if you’re looking for a flavored corn chip and you don’t come home with a bag of Doritos, there’s something seriously wrong with you. (If you’re look...

Our Hoddler-in-Chief is on vacation this week, so I guess you’re stuck with the boss. Hi, Hoddlers! Pardeep’s on vacation, so I guess that means you’re stuck with me for at least part of the week, until I can find some other sucker to foist this job off of until she comes back. I’m not a rambler...
Cartilage Free Captain - Sun Aug 19 11:55 AM
FOOOOOOOOOOOTBAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLL O HAI there Spurs fans! Still buzzing like Harry Kane with his head in a beehive after yesterday’s win? Me too. The good news is that there are three more football games to watch today. The bad news is that none of them seem all that compelling, unless...
Cartilage Free Captain - Sun Aug 19 12:07 AM
Vertonghen and Alderweireld bring different skills to the pitch, and they complemented each other very well against Fulham. Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld are club teammates on Tottenham Hotspur and international teammates with Belgium, so it makes sense that they play with a freedom that c...
Cartilage Free Captain - Sat Aug 18 8:15 PM
Spurs’ manager is tired of talking about player relations, but suggested that because he started him, Toby has proven he’s committed to the team. Perhaps the biggest surprise ahead of Tottenham Hotspur ’s 3-1 win over Fulham at Wembley Stadium today was Mauricio Pochettino ’s decision to start To...
Cartilage Free Captain - Sat Aug 18 5:23 PM
The August slump is over. England’s World Cup run to the semi-finals was one of the biggest stories of the summer and it was spearheaded by many Tottenham Hotspur stars. Two of them have earned Spurs a win over Fulham today. Kieran Trippier gave Spurs the lead with a stunning free kick with aroun...
Cartilage Free Captain - Sat Aug 18 5:05 PM
Two for two in league play to start the season! In what was supposed to be the swansong for Tottenham Hotspur ’s stay at Wembley Stadium before last week’s announcement, Spurs used the final thirty minutes of the match to dispatch a pesky Fulham side by the final score of 3-1. Tottenham’s first c...
Cartilage Free Captain - Sat Aug 18 4:22 PM
Tottenham Hotspur’s last big signing finally pays dividends. A new signing has scored his first goal Premier League goal for Tottenham Hotspur ! Okay so that signing may have arrived last January and the goal has come in August, but it was worth the wait for Lucas Moura. The Brazilian winger has...
Cartilage Free Captain - Sat Aug 18 12:00 PM
Wembley, Sweet Wembley! Tottenham Hotspur are back “home.” Well, it’s not home — White Hart Lane is gone, the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium won’t be finished for at least another couple of months — so it’s back to Wembley Stadium for Spurs’ first non-away match of the season. It’s kind of nice to see...
Cartilage Free Captain - Fri Aug 17 7:55 PM
You win, Moose. If you’re anywhere close to a football news page or Tottenham Hotspur twitter, then you’ve probably seen the Dele Alli Celebration Challenge. Basically, it’s a dare to see if you can reproduce the upside down thumb-forefinger-circle goal celebration thing that Dele did for the fir...

Gambling is legal now in America! Let’s celebrate! Our British friends may not know this, but sports gambling was illegal in America until quite recently outside of Nevada. Then the Supreme Court ruled that the Federal government could not regulate gambling, and so states are set to legalize gamb...
Cartilage Free Captain - Fri Aug 17 3:54 PM
Sonny and the Taeguk Warriors need a result against Kyrgyzstan in order to progress out of their Asian Games group. Uh oh. It looks like Tottenham Hotspur ’s Son Heung-Min and the South Korean U23 team could be in a bit of trouble in the 2018 Asian Games. After a 6-0 demolition of Bahrain in thei...
Cartilage Free Captain - Fri Aug 17 2:16 PM
So much for a reunion with Nabil Bentaleb. Tottenham Hotspur left back Danny Rose was one of the players linked with a departure from the club before the end of the European transfer window . It was reported on deadline day that Spurs were close to a deal with Bundesliga club Schalke that would s...

Style inconsistencies. Hi, all! One last Hoddle before I go on vacation. Enjoy next week, everybody! Ramble of the Day Every now and again, I have a real life conversation about stylish coaches. I have rambled about this once before , though today, I will ramble a bit differently. Clearly, there...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Aug 16 11:12 PM
Construction delays happen. But Tottenham needs to do much better in how it talks to its supporters. By now you’ve all heard the news that, like every project I’ve ever worked on, Spurs’ new stadium will be finished late . Beyond late, given that it was originally supposed to be ready by our firs...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Aug 16 7:31 PM
No details but strong suggestions that there are players on their way out of north London. In his weekly press conference today, Mauricio Pochettino spent most of his time talking about the delay of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and less time talking about Fulham, Spurs’ opponent on Saturday. One...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Aug 16 6:35 PM
It’s back to Wembley on Saturday. How will Spurs line up against the newly promoted Cottagers? Tottenham Hotspur return “home” on Saturday for their second Premier League match of the season — by that I mean of course Wembley Stadium, England’s national stadium and where Spurs played all of their...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Aug 16 2:08 PM
Erik Lamela has almost healed his “unspecified muscle.” Mauricio Pochettino gave his weekly pre-match press conference, and there’s good news in Tottenham’s ongoing midfield injury crunch. Pochettino said that three of his wounded warriors - Erik Lamela, Harry Winks, and Josh Onomah - all returne...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Aug 16 1:40 PM
Skipjack & Co. take a look at a really great week at Tottenham Hotspur. Well after a week where there was nothing to talk about we sure have some stuff to discuss this week. I am joined by my sidekick, Ben Daniels; a podcast veteran, Bryan Ashlock; and Internet Terrorist, Reno Wallabout. We break...

Hidden trophies. Hello, everyone! Thanks to those of you who gave me some recommendations for my upcoming vacation. I appreciate the help! Ramble of the Day You probably looked at the lead image of today’s Hoddle and wondered why Michel Vorm is dramatically posing with a trophy. Then you probably...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed Aug 15 7:21 PM
Spurs’ pacey winger may be on his way to Germany. Georges-Kevin N’Koudou is the latest French winger to struggle after joining Tottenham Hotspur. Clinton N’Jie’s time at the club was short, and Moussa Sissoko hasn’t quite lived up to his transfer fee. N’Koudou’s struggles led to a loan to Burnley...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed Aug 15 4:23 PM
Kick-around behind the Dog & Duck, anyone? The complications stemming from the construction delay of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium continue to pile up for Spurs. What officials are calling “critical safety issues” have caused Spurs to postpone the opening of their new ground, forcing Spurs to mov...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed Aug 15 7:30 AM
Apps and public transportation. Hello, everyone! A public service announcement that I had originally intended to share yesterday: I will be on vacation in Madrid for all of next week, so there will be no rambling from me. If you have any recommendations on sights to see, things to eat, and day tr...
