Cartilage Free Captain - Tue Sep 5 8:48 PM
The Dutch paper says that Janssen will seek an exit in January after refusing loan moves on transfer deadline day. Vincent Janssen started each of the Netherlands’ two World Cup qualification matches this past week, but if Dutch paper De Telegraaf is correct, it may be the last time that we see J...
Cartilage Free Captain - Tue Sep 5 4:27 PM
Why, it’s almost like that’s his job! All summer Tottenham Hotspur fans have been dealing with transfer speculation concerning current players potentially leaving Spurs for other clubs. First it was the Kyle Walker to Manchester City rumors (which were ultimately borne out). Danny Rose was linked...

How will the big Spaniard fit into the Tottenham system? We’re still several days away from Fernando Llorente’s possible debut with Tottenham, but we can probably say two things, briefly, about how the big Spaniard might fit into Mauricio Pochettino’s squad. Pochettino likes experimenting with tw...

Let’s do a community hoddle today. Hey all, working on some tactics posts for this week, so no time for a longer Hoddle today. What’d you all think of the international fixtures? Think Harry will be back in the goals after his brace last week? I will admit I’m actually kinda hoping Dele does get...
Cartilage Free Captain - Mon Sep 4 9:49 PM
Dele doing Dele things, we guess. Dele Alli is no stranger to controversy. It what looked like a routine England 2-1 win over Slovakia in UEFA World Cup qualifying, he may have stirred up some more. A random camera shot late in the match showed the Tottenham Hotspur star flipping off someone or s...

Cartilage Free Captain - Mon Sep 4 5:14 PM
Reality can't deter my excitement for Fernando. Fernando Llorente is probably a bad signing for Tottenham Hotspur . He is old, immobile, extremely limited, and plays counter to Spurs’ preferred brand of football. And I am very, very excited to see him on our team. Unlike many of our fans, I came...
Cartilage Free Captain - Mon Sep 4 4:24 PM
A few notable names are missing from Spurs’ Champions League squad.

Let’s laugh at Barcelona some more! Here’s something to amuse you. Nice’s president explains why the Jean Pierre Seri move fell through: "The two clubs had agreed a price of 40 million euros, but the situation changed at the last moment, ” he said.

Cartilage Free Captain - Sun Sep 3 8:00 AM
As you might expect, opinion is mixed. The transfer window is closed, and we’ve all had a couple of days now to think about how it went.

Curses are totally a thing, you guys. HEY EVERYONE GUESS WHAT DAY IT IS TODAY GO ON, GUESS DID YOU GUESS SEPTEMBER 1 BECAUSE IT TOTALLY IS Yes, that’s Tottenham Hotspur ’s Harry Kane , he who is contractually obligated not to score in the month of August, firing home a shot while wide-open in the...
Cartilage Free Captain - Fri Sep 1 8:15 PM
You thought it was over? It will never be over. In what should probably be considered a huge surprise considering all the words typed about it, Tottenham Hotspur did NOT end up purchasing Everton ’s Ross Barkley on deadline day. That’s funny enough. What actually happened — Everton completing a m...
Cartilage Free Captain - Fri Sep 1 3:33 PM
Prediction: a run on Llorente kits at the club shop. (I’m tempted too!) It’s hard to come down from the transfer window. I’m still, as Harry Kane would put it, “buzzing.” But as I went to bed on Thursday night, there was one question still rattling around in my brain: What will Fernando Llorente’...
Cartilage Free Captain - Fri Sep 1 2:58 PM
A walk town Tottenham Hotspur memory lane! The transfer window has closed, and we’ve already noted all the Tottenham Hotspur players who have made moves either in or out this summer. But keep in mind that the La Liga window doesn’t close until today, so there’s the potential for some last-minute...
Cartilage Free Captain - Fri Sep 1 7:00 AM
That was fun? So I know that Marcelo Bielsa basically destroyed Fernando Llorente’s body and that the big Spanish target man has been a much more limited player in recent years. And I know he’s 32. I think I’m still talking myself into this though? It could be that yesterday ended in more amusing...
Cartilage Free Captain - Fri Sep 1 1:55 AM
A curious move, to say the least The final bit of business for Tottenham Hotspur on deadline day appears to be a deal that materializes into nothing. With Fernando Llorente coming to Spurs today , it seemed that the young Dutch International might be off to Brighton and Hove Albion on a year-long...

Messi with an Afro wants to fight for his place. The transfer window has slammed shut, and Marcus Edwards is still a Tottenham Hotspur player.

WELP Andre Gomes was supposed to be the break-glass-in-case-of-emergency midfield signing for Tottenham Hotspur , but it looks like that might not happen after all, if you believe Guillem Balague.

Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Aug 31 10:45 PM
Hahahahahaha I don’t even know Did you really think it was over? THIS SAGA NEVER ENDS.

That sure looks like him! It’s been quiet on the home front for a few hours now, and since there are just over two hours to go in the transfer window that tends to make us Tottenham Hotspur bloggers a little jumpy. So imagine my surprise when this suddenly hit my timeline: that'll be llorente the...

Swansea won’t let Llorente go until they have his replacement in the squad. It’s been quite for a couple of hours with regards to the Fernando Llorente situation, but apparently there’s a reason for that: Swansea aren’t willing to let him go until they’re sure that Llorente’s replacement is signe...

This is hopefully not the biggest news of the day. It’s the first news of Transfer Deadline Day, even if it’s not the most impactful.

Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Aug 31 7:27 AM
The dumbest day of the year is here. The good news is that this incredibly dumb, annoying, stupid summer is almost over. The bad news is it’s transfer deadline day. The good news is it looks like Chelsea is going to be extremely dumb and pip us to Ross Barkley. The bad news is our best viable tra...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Aug 31 2:48 AM
Unfortunately the other two are Chelsea and Barcelona. If there’s one thing we know Tottenham Hotspur needs, it’s another good wide attacking midfielder. Riyad Mahrez fits the bill, but this has been more wishcasting than anything else. But maybe not? Reports are coming out that Riyad Mahrez is l...

Cartilage Free Captain - Wed Aug 30 7:56 PM
One was rejected for being too expensive, and the other for not being good enough. This isn’t a transfer rumor. Really, it’s more of an ANTI-transfer rumor that you can potentially use to get irrationally angry with the window (assuming you’re not already). According to the Independent, which is...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed Aug 30 7:26 PM
Guess what: the Twossa rumors are back! We are entering into that time of the transfer window where rumors come thick and fast. Many of them will not pan out. But some will!

Did anyone ask Sonny if he approved this transfer? Quick hoddle today due to a busy work day for me and a busier evening. But I do have some links: ESPN3 is going to be streaming League One matches in the USA this weekend. NBC Sports is in talks to get a Premier League Pass deal set up with bars...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed Aug 30 5:21 AM
Someone’s gotta do it Wheeler Dealer Radio is back baby! Unfortunately we have to talk about the Burnley match. Spurs were pretty mediocre and then we conceded a stupid goal. Thankfully after we finish with that we get to talk about the transfer market which isn’t upsetting at all. Oh well at lea...
