Cartilage Free Captain - Sat Sep 30 8:21 PM
Kyle Walker left north London after falling out with Mauricio Pochettino, but he says the decision was more difficult than anyone knew. We never actually heard Kyle Walker ’s side of the story. Since last spring, the news in the football media was all about Kyle Walker and his dissatisfaction wit...

Poch is not a fan of diving. Tottenham Hotspur were very impressive in today’s 4-0 victory over Huddersfield Town. Spurs started very well, and would’ve won by more if they hadn’t taken their foot off the gas. But the one downside of the match was Dele Alli’s ugly dive in the 58th minute. Maurici...

World class? World class. Harry Kane’s brace today for Tottenham Hotspur against Huddersfield Town has put him up to 84 career Premier League goals, a staggering number considering he’s only 24 years old. He’s also now in some elite Premier League goal scoring company. Harry Kane now has as many...

That was a good old-fashioned butt-whoopin’. Tottenham Hotspur went to Yorkshire today to take on Huddersfield Town for the first matchup between the two sides since 1972. It was billed as the first real test of the Terriers since they promoted to the Premier League for the first time in their hi...

Great start Harry Kane is a man possessed. After having his usual slow start in August, the Tottenham Hotspur star has notched his 10th goal in his last six matches by scoring the opener today at Huddersfield Town. Capitalizing on a goalkeeper error, Kane got his first good chance to score early...

Spurs are heading to Yorkshire for their first match against Huddersfield since 1972. The last time Tottenham Hotspur faced Huddersfield Town was just over 45 years ago on 6 September, 1972. Tottenham hosted the Terriers in the League Cup and won 2-1, behind goals from Martin Chivers and Alan Gil...

Spurs travel to West Yorkshire to face an upstart Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s Stadium Tottenham have notched two straight victories after their disappointing home draw to Swansea thirteen days ago.

Oh noes I guess he can’t play. Bird-Gate™ has come to its inevitable — and ridiculous — conclusion today after FIFA has issued a one-match international ban to Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli. Dele is being punished flipping the bird to Kyle Walker in an England match a few weeks ago. He’l...

The bomb squad was called to Hotspur Way on Friday to deal with what might have been a 70-year old unexploded ordnance. There’s been a little bit of excitement at Hotspur Way today, but not the kind you necessarily want. According to the Evening Standard, Tottenham Hotspur ’s training facility an...

Winksy is finally healthy after an ankle injury, and Poch thinks he offers a different look in Spurs’ midfield. Perhaps the one positive thing that has come out of Tottenham Hotspur ’s mini midfield injury crisis is the re-emergence of Harry Winks. The 21 year old box-to-box midfielder, a Tottenh...

Happy Friday Spursland! The weekend is barreling around the corner and with it, Tottenham’s first-ever Premier League tie against Huddersfield Town. In honour of this momentous occasion, I thought I’d furnish you with a few interesting facts about the place where our opponents are based. Huddersf...

Poch thinks Alli is better off back at Spurs if Bird-Gate™ lands him an international ban. So during the last international break, Dele Alli got in ALL SORTS OF BIG FINGER WAGGING TROUBLE for being caught on camera doing this: Oh noes, how rude! Dele indicated that it was a playful gesture betwee...

Kane’s perfect hat trick lands him in some pretty elite company. More fantastic news! After completing a perfect hat trick in Tottenham Hotspur ’s 3-0 win over APOEL in Nicosia on Tuesday, Harry Kane has been recognized by UEFA with a nomination for the Champions League Player of the Week! Hat-tr...

Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Eric Dier, and Kieran Trippier will all suit up for the Three Lions. The international break loometh, and its heralds are the team announcements. England manager Gareth Southgate has selected his squad for next week’s two UEFA World Cup qualifiers vs. Slovenia and at Lithua...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Sep 28 3:03 PM
Kind of a good-news-bad-news thing. Team news is out for Tottenham Hotspur ’s upcoming Premier League match at debutants Huddersfield United, and it’s a bit of a mixed bag. The good news is that Christian Eriksen is very likely to return to the starting XI after missing Tuesday’s Champions League...

Morning all! To ease you into Thursday morning we have a track from Alex Cameron’s fantastic new album ‘Forced Witness’ as your theme of the day today, and then below that your usual serving of links. Links Promising young defender Anton Walkes has signed a new deal through to 2019 apparently. Th...

Two matches and six goals Tottenham won a huge match this week and also we beat West Ham. I am joined by Ben Daniels, sidekick specialist, and Bryan Ashlock, Old Timey Bit Enthusiast to break down the results against APOEL and West Ham. We look at the importance of Harry Kane in these games and t...

Anton Walkes is on loan in MLS, and he’s turned his experience into a new Spurs contract. It’s not the Tottenham Hotspur defender that we wish would sign a new contract, but it’s something! The club announced today via its social media channels and on its website that 20-year old Spurs defender A...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed Sep 27 4:07 PM
It was perhaps a flattering scoreline, but Spurs got a big away win in the Champions League with a piece-meal squad. Now that the dust has settled on Tottenham Hotspur ’s 3-0 Champions League win over APOEL in Nicosia, we can take a closer look at the match. It was, by many indications, a weird m...

Five yellow cards in the 95th minute weren’t enough, so the league feels like it has to step in. Things got a mite testy at the end of last Saturday’s match between Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United at the London Stadium, and the league has seen fit to intervene. The Football Association has...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed Sep 27 10:40 AM
Good morning Spursland! Woooo three more points in the Champions League woooo! With the scoring touch that he’s starting to show in Europe, I’m slowly starting to believe that Harry Kane may in fact be worthy of taking up Peter Crouch’s mantle after all. New track from Vulfpeck for your Theme of...

Two games and two wins for North London’s sole representative in the Champions League It was billed as a must win game for Tottenham Hotspur if they wanted to advance out of Group H and into the knockout stages of the Champions League. Surely they had to defeat Cypriot minnows APOEL. It was nervy...
Cartilage Free Captain - Tue Sep 26 8:31 PM
Harry Kane has scored to put Tottenham Hotspur ahead of APOEL away from home in the Champions League. Just a little less than 10 minutes until halftime and the two-time Premier league Golden Boot winner walked the offside line, latched onto a throughball from Toby Alderweireld and calmly slotted...

Spurs are without seven of their best players. A win keeps them at worst joint top in Group H. Tottenham Hotspur are in Cyprus today for their second match of Group H in the 2017 UEFA Champions League. They are at the home of APOEL Nicosia, the Cypriot League champions, but a club that has not ha...

Happy Tuesday Spursland! So I saw that movie IT earlier this week, and after settling in for a damn good scaring I’m disappointed to report that barely a single hair on the back of my neck was raised. When you’re getting a weekly dose of the real-life occult nightmare that is the Wembley Curse, f...

Once again, let’s boldly go. You may or may not be aware of the fact, but Star Trek is back and I’m positively giddy. Last night was the debut of Star Trek: Discovery, the seventh television incarnation of the 50-year old Star Trek franchise, on CBS. The show will be streamed weekly on CBS’s new...

Thanks to injuries and suspensions, Mauricio Pochettino has a tactical conundrum for Tuesday’s Champions League match. Tottenham Hotspur released team news for tomorrow’s Champions League match against APOEL, and it’s not great news. As feared, Mousa Dembele was ruled out for the trip to Cyprus a...
Cartilage Free Captain - Mon Sep 25 5:41 PM
Dumb article is dumb but let’s talk about it! Tottenham Hotspur , coming off a 3-2 victory over West Ham at the dead zone known as London Stadium, have a very important midweek match with Apoel Nicosia in the Champions League. Picking up a crucial three points against the Pot 4 club is vital if S...

Good morning Spursland! If you’re anything like me, then your pulse has probably only just about returned to normal after the final 20 minutes of Saturday’s away win over West Ham (cheers, Serge Aurier!). You’ve thus got a super-chilled track from Mac DeMarco as your Hoddle Theme of the Day to he...

According to Poch, Moose could be set for an extended absence. But no surgery! Maybe. Mousa Dembele was rested for Saturday’s 3-2 Tottenham Hotspur win over West Ham at the London Stadium, but most observers didn’t think much about it. Dembele started in Spurs’ midweek League Cup win over Barnsle...

A win in Cyprus could give Spurs some space in their group heading into back-to-back Champions League matches against Real Madrid. After a gritty, scary win over West Ham at the London Stadium on Saturday, all eyes now return to the Champions League, where Tottenham will travel to Cyprus for Tues...
