Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Sep 21 8:38 PM
We’re really serious this time, honest! Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Erik Lamela is close to a return for Tottenham Hotspur . Lamela. ERIK Lamela. You know, the Argentine guy we signed a few years back? No, the other one. No, we sold him to Napoli. He did the rabona thing? Yes, he’s s...

The Hammers’ boss isn’t taking the threat of Spurs at London Stadium lightly. Tottenham Hotspur drew West Ham in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup yesterday, but they’ll travel to London Stadium this Saturday in the first Premier League meeting between the two sides. West Ham manager Slaven Bil...

Happy Thursday Spursland! You’ve got a little bit of indie synth-soul from HOMESHAKE for your Theme of the Day today, and then below that your daily serving of links. Enjoy! Links Spurs are apparently set to duke it out with Liverpool for the signing of Bremen’s David Philipp . Errr to your prefe...

Sloughing off Swansea Spurs had one of their most boring matches of the year so naturally it was the best week for Wheeler Dealer Radio’s regular crew to come back. I’m joined by Evil Numbers Wizard Michael Caley, Sidekick Extraordinaire Ben Daniels, and Shady Miami Drug Lord Bryan Ashlock. We br...

It’s another London derby at Wembley Stadium. The draw for the League Cup fourth round is now taking place, and Tottenham Hotspur now know their opponents. Spurs were the first ball out of the hat and will have a home match against Premier League rivals West Ham in the next round. We have been dr...

Walker-Peters capped off an impressive offseason with a prestigious U21 award nomination. Kyle Walker-Peters had a pretty good offseason. The young Tottenham Hotspur fullback won the U20 World Cup with England in South Korea this summer and played very well against his peers while playing out of...

Tottenham’s young academy graduate is finally healthy and ready to get back into the action for Spurs. It’s been a long recovery from injury for Harry Winks, but the Tottenham Hotspur academy graduate midfielder says he’s back now and ready to get back into the first team action for Spurs. Winks...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed Sep 20 8:27 AM
Gooooood morning Spursland! Hump day can be a reflective part of the week at the best of times- let alone when Spurs have just struggled to an ugly 1-0 win over Championship opposition. To reflect that, I’ve chosen something lovely from Sampha’s Mercury Prize-winning album Process for you all to...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed Sep 20 3:26 AM
You can’t watch the match, but you can see the highlights. Unless you were in Wembley Stadium tonight (and I’m sure more than a few of you were!) you didn’t get to watch Tottenham Hotspur ’s 1-0 win over Barnsley in the third round of the Carabao Cup. It might be just as well — all indications we...
Cartilage Free Captain - Tue Sep 19 10:02 PM
It wasn’t pretty, but the job was done. Tottenham played today. It wasn’t televised anywhere, and that might’ve been for the better. Spurs defeated Barnsley 1-0 at Wembley in a tedious and frustrating affair. But a win is a win, and this win sees them advance to the fourth-round of the Carabao Cu...

Dele Alli goal! #TOTBAR pic.twitter.com/xEcyn26tT6 — Andy Sshot (@Andysshot) September 19, 2017 Dele Alli has fired Tottenham Hotspur in front of Barnsley in the Carling Capital One Carabao Cup! A match not seen on TV anywhere except shady Periscope streams, there’s not much to the goal, but Spur...
Cartilage Free Captain - Tue Sep 19 5:38 PM
On the eve of Spurs’ 2017-18 League Cup campaign, Spurs’ manager has essentially dissed England’s premier cup competitions. Mauricio Pochettino isn’t all that fond of England’s cup competitions. We’ve kind of known this for a while, but for the first time he’s come right out and admitted it: give...
Cartilage Free Captain - Tue Sep 19 5:00 PM
It’s not on TV, but that’s not going to stop us from following along! Hey, it’s the third round of the League Milk Coca-Cola Worthington Carling Capital one EFL Carabao Cup! Just three days after their disappointing scoreless draw against Swansea, Spurs are back at Wembley Stadium to host Champio...
Cartilage Free Captain - Tue Sep 19 10:52 AM
Happy Tuesday Spursland! It’s my second day in charge of the Hoddle- where does the time go, huh?- and pleasingly, nothing seems to be on fire just yet. Let’s see how long that last, though, as I reintroduce the ever-controversial Hoddle Theme of the Day feature: And now back to your regularly-sc...
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...
Cartilage Free Captain - Mon Sep 18 3:39 PM
After a long injury (and surgery!) Edwards is not physically ready, according to Mauricio Pochettino. Tottenham Hotspur open their Carabao (née League) Cup account tomorrow evening against Championship side Barnsley at Wembley Stadium, but despite his promise, academy graduate and highly rated at...
Cartilage Free Captain - Mon Sep 18 12:51 PM
Good morning Spursland! No, your eyes do not deceive you- ‘tis really I, Cartilage Free Captain’s erstwhile token Englishman Edward F. Those amongst you with long (and trauma-resistant) memories may recall that I used to occasionally cover the Hoddle back around the time of the AVB/Tim Sherwood e...
Cartilage Free Captain - Sun Sep 17 7:25 PM
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...
Cartilage Free Captain - Sun Sep 17 11:30 AM
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...
Cartilage Free Captain - Sat Sep 16 9:25 PM
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 - Sat Sep 16 7:45 PM
Spurs had three controversial penalty decisions waved away en route to a frustrating draw. Tottenham Hotspur entered today’s match against lowly Swansea City knowing that a big win could see them further banish the Wembley Stadium Hoodoo™ and re-establish themselves as Premier League title conten...
Cartilage Free Captain - Sat Sep 16 3:07 PM
Fernando Llorente is up against his old club for the first time. Can you hear the drums? Tottenham Hotspur are back in Premier League action just three days after their big win over Dortmund in the Champions League. A win today at Wembley Stadium against a struggling Swansea City is a bit easier...
Cartilage Free Captain - Sat Sep 16 2:45 AM
Tottenham Hotspur’s manager explains how his trust in Kane might have been what kept him from the sack in 2014. Mauricio Pochettino was in an unusually candid mood in his press conference ahead of Saturday’s match against Swansea City . The subject of the conversation was Harry Kane , who had sco...
Cartilage Free Captain - Fri Sep 15 7:32 PM
New narrative for you: Spurs can’t lose at Wembley Stadium. Tottenham Hotspur conclude what has already been an epic week of football when they host Swansea City at Wembley Stadium. Spurs posted a dominating performance at Goodison Park last Saturday as they thumped Everton 3-0. Harry Kane found...
Cartilage Free Captain - Fri Sep 15 4:30 PM
Let’s preview this weekend’s fixtures with the help of expected goals. (Hopefully these will be a regular Friday feature. We’ll see. It depends on how busy life gets this fall.) Here is a table organized by xGD through four rounds of this year’s Premier League. (The xG data comes from Michael Cal...

We can’t put it off any longer: the young Messr. Edwards has a huge future. Back by popular demand, Cartilage Free Captain is again reviewing and ranking the top 10 youth prospects at Tottenham Hotspur to see which players have the best potential to follow current players like Harry Kane and Harr...
Cartilage Free Captain - Fri Sep 15 7:00 AM
Jake’s Last Hoddle Hey all—so this is my final Hoddle. I have some big work projects coming up in the immediate future and need to free up as much time as I can to do those. So I’m handing the Hoddle off to someone else, who you’ll meet on Monday. I’ve really enjoyed doing this and I hope you hav...
