Cartilage Free Captain - Fri Jan 5 6:17 PM
Smart business or sour grapes? Ross Barkley is now officially a Chelsea player after the club announced his signing in a £15m deal. News broke last night that Chelsea were on the verge of signing the England international last night, and this morning several sources said that Spurs had backed off...
Cartilage Free Captain - Fri Jan 5 4:19 PM
Despite the match official waving off several penalty shouts, Tottenham’s manager didn’t wade into the fray in post-match comments. Tottenham Hotspur were treated unkindly by the football gods yesterday, utterly dominating West Ham in statistics but still coming away with a 1-1 draw thanks to fan...

Once again, Poch and Kane are in the running for monthly accolades. I feel like I write this post every month. The Premier League announced today that Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino was nominated for the Barclays Manager of the Month for December, while striker Harry Kane was nomin...

On to other (and hopefully better) targets! According to Sky Sports News, Tottenham Hotspur have ended their interest in Everton midfielder Ross Barkley , paving the way for him to complete a transfer to Chelsea . The Blues are expected to announce the completion of his signing as early as today....

Let’s talk about dogs, or one dog in particular. Hi, everyone! Happy Friday! That was a match yesterday. Anyway, I will distract you, should you want it. Before the proper ramble, I will share that I did not catch up on Don’t Tell the Bride yesterday, but I may have time over the weekend since I...

Is the Ross Barkley saga over before it even really had a chance to get going in January? If Matt Law in the Telegraph is correct, the Ross Barkley saga might be just about over. And if you were excited about Barkley potentially joining Tottenham Hotspur , it’s not good news. Law writes this even...

Spurs had to come from behind, but will ultimately see this as points dropped. Before tonight, Spurs had been perfect through the festive fixtures in the Premier League. A win in the latest London Derby would’ve put them just one point off the top four, but it wasn’t to be. Tottenham and West Ham...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Jan 4 5:11 PM
It’s another cup final for West Ham as they try and take the rubber match against Tottenham Hotspur. Nobody likes to play two games in three days, but that’s exactly what the holiday fixture list has done to Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United . Both sides played hard-fought matches on Tuesday...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Jan 4 5:00 PM
Who’s ready for another cup final? Tottenham Hotspur play West Ham for the third time already this season. Both games had identical scorelines — 3-2 — but with each team taking one result. Spurs got a 3-2 win at the London Stadium in September, but the Hammers came back from two goals down to win...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Jan 4 2:49 PM
Yes, Tottenham Hotspur are apparently still interested. Well, we all knew it was only a matter of time before this transfer rumor would pop up again in the papers. Ross Barkley is now the subject of renewed interest with the January transfer window open again, and the rumors have returned in forc...

Mousa Dembele is available for selection in today’s London derby. Good news, everyone! Tottenham Hotspur have a fully healthy central midfield! Two days after Victor Wanyama played his first minutes for Spurs against Swansea City , the club announced that Mousa Dembele, its final injured midfield...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Jan 4 7:30 AM
It’s match day! Again! Hi, Hoddle people! It’s match day again! The last one was such a long time ago. As for me, a snow day is most likely coming my way and I’m probably going to drink hot chocolate during the match. Enough about that, though. I need ramble more formally. Ramble of the Day When...

This is a living, updating document. Dele Alli 90 games, 33 goals for Tottenham Hotspur. Jack Wilshere 157 games, 8 goals for Arsenal, Bournemouth and Bolton Wanderers. This post will be updated frequently. Stats current as of 1/3/2018
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed Jan 3 3:34 PM
How do you rank players when the weather makes everything crap? Tottenham Hotspur got a 2-0 win over Swansea City on Tuesday at the Liberty Stadium in Swansea. It was an important win for Spurs, but the weather conditions in the south of Wales made for an ugly match. The officiating by Bobby Madl...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed Jan 3 8:08 AM
Some GIFs to go with your links. Hey, people of the Hoddle! Spurs have collected a victory to begin the new year, Victor Wanyama is back, I predicted the scoreline correctly, and I had a slice of cake last night! Not a terrible day. As I say that, though, I remember that my internet died right be...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed Jan 3 12:16 AM
Tottenham admitted that luck might have come into play, but felt the final score accurately reflected the match. The weather was horrific in south Wales, but Tottenham Hotspur endured, grinding out a 2-0 win over Swansea at the Liberty Stadium on Tuesday night and keeping Spurs in the hunt for a...
Cartilage Free Captain - Tue Jan 2 10:55 PM
It wasn’t pretty, but Spurs got the three points in wet Wales. The rain poured down in Wales as Tottenham Hotspur took on Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium on Tuesday. Despite an overall sub-par performance from Tottenham Hotspur, terrible weather and pitch conditions, and some absolutely shamb...
Cartilage Free Captain - Tue Jan 2 6:00 PM
Moose is getting towards the end of his career, but this is ridiculous and you shouldn’t believe it. For the first time this window, we have a transfer rumor about a player leaving Tottenham Hotspur whose name isn’t Harry Kane or Dele Alli. Predictably, it’s stupid. Italian rumor mongers Corriere...
Cartilage Free Captain - Tue Jan 2 4:45 PM
Spurs got a rare week off during the busy holiday fixture period. Can they turn that into an emphatic win at the Liberty Stadium? 2017 was a pretty fantastic year for Tottenham Hotspur , and also for Harry Kane . But a new year provides new challenges, and the first of those involves a trip to Wa...
Cartilage Free Captain - Tue Jan 2 9:40 AM
Harry Kane gets the headlines, but Tottenham knows what they have in the “David Beckham of Asia.” It must be difficult on some level to play on a team with Harry Kane . Not just the best striker in England, but possibly in all of Europe, Kane is a home-grown hero, bags goals for fun, and tends to...
Cartilage Free Captain - Tue Jan 2 7:30 AM
Finally, a match day! Hi, everyone! Looks like the whole world made it into 2018. Welcome! I have only yelled once so far! Here’s why: Well Lauren’s a blithering idiot then, isn’t she? pic.twitter.com/2uAAp87TTK — Pete Otway (@PeteOtway) December 31, 2017 Now you see why I yelled. Anyway, to the...
Cartilage Free Captain - Mon Jan 1 6:15 PM
Tom Carroll scores six, but Spurs eek out a 7 in a hotly contested match. Tawmy transfers to Spurs the next day for a believed 150 million and Tottenham win the league. The festive period has been wonderful to Tottenham Hotspur thus far. After their 3-0 domination of Burnley at the Turf Moor, Spu...
Cartilage Free Captain - Mon Jan 1 3:15 PM
Welcome back, Big Vic! It’s been a long time since we’ve seen Victor Wanyama play for Tottenham Hotspur . Injured in preseason, he played eight minutes in Spurs’ season opening win over Newcastle and went the full 90 in a loss vs. Chelsea . He’s been out with a knee injury ever since. Wanyama’s b...
Cartilage Free Captain - Mon Jan 1 2:44 PM
Tottenham supporters are angsting over Toby’s contract, but Poch says don’t worry. If you were to ask a typical Tottenham Hotspur fan what they want in the next month well, most of them would say they want to sign Gareth Bale. But we’re not talking about them. The next most likely answer would be...
Cartilage Free Captain - Mon Jan 1 8:18 AM
Happy 2018, everybody! Hello, Hoddlers! Welcome to 2018! It’s a bit funny to say that since the Western United States and parts nearby will still be in 2017. Regardless, I hope everyone enjoyed/is enjoying the holiday! As for me, I am already thinking up warmer destinations to ring in 2019. The v...

Once again, Nike is going to the Vapor template for Tottenham’s new kits. A couple of weeks ago we shared some leaked details about Tottenham Hotspur ’s 2018-19 kits as leaked by the usually reliable Footy Headlines. Today, they leaked what they purport to be the full away kit , and it’s well, it...

Big Vic shed a little insight into the team dynamic inside the Spurs dressing room, and it’s delightful. Hey, it’s a decidedly Tottenham Hotspur -free weekend, so we must needs look for alternate forms of entertainment here at Cartilage Free Captain. Thankfully, we didn’t have to look too far for...
Cartilage Free Captain - Sat Dec 30 3:00 PM
He’s young, fast, and could be on Brazil’s World Cup squad this summer. We have ourselves a genuine Tottenham Hotspur January transfer window rumor, people! Reports out of France and the UK are suggesting that Spurs are taking a serious look at young Brazilian attacking midfielder Malcom, who is...
Cartilage Free Captain - Sat Dec 30 2:59 PM
There are lots of Premier League teams playing this weekend! But not Spurs. Happy weekend, everyone! There’s a full slate of Premier League matches to play today and tomorrow, but weirdly, none of those matches include Tottenham Hotspur , who are off until January 2. Still, it’s not like we’re go...
