Cartilage Free Captain - Sat Oct 6 5:24 PM
I mean a win is a win. Tottenham Hotspur were missing five key players, but they still needed a response after Wednesday’s loss to Barcelona in the Champions League. The response came, but it wasn’t anything impressive. Spurs beat Cardiff City 1-0 at Wembley on Saturday with Eric Dier scoring the...
Cartilage Free Captain - Sat Oct 6 12:00 PM
Cardiff are bad, but Spurs are injured. Tottenham Hotspur can make it 18 from 8 matches in the Premier League with a win today over Cardiff City at Wembley Stadium. Spurs are coming off of a 4-2 loss to Barcelona in the Champions League , but what better way to wash the taste of a Messi mastercla...

Spurs get a weak Cardiff this week, hoping to bounce back from the midweek Last week, Bryan and I both did well from our match against Huddersfield. I added $100 to my tally, whereas Bryan got off the even rate, adding $333 to his total with Harry’s brace. Now, after a disappointing but kind of c...

Oh no Roberto baby, what is you doing? Mauricio Pochettino generally has a pretty cordial relationship with the national team managers of his club players. He almost has to — if he doesn’t get along with people like England’s Gareth Southgate and Belgium’s Roberto Martinez , it creates tension wh...
Cartilage Free Captain - Fri Oct 5 2:07 PM
Still not great! But it’s also still Cardiff. Earlier this morning I posted my predicted lineup for Tottenham Hotspur ’s upcoming Premier League match against Cardiff City, with the understanding that this morning’s press conference could invalidate it. The idea was that if the team news revealed...
Cartilage Free Captain - Fri Oct 5 10:27 AM
Answer: probably a lot like they lined up against Barcelona. You might have heard, but Tottenham Hotspur have a bunch of injuries right now. That’s the bad news. The good news is that, after a tough loss to Barcelona in the Champions League , they can put things right with a turnaround win over f...

The specific world of medical dramas. Hey, everyone! I come with a hypothesis. Ramble of the Day If I gave you the task of naming television shows about doctors, I imagine each one of you would come up with around four to six off the top of your head, if not more. I’ll do the same, restricting my...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Oct 4 7:33 PM
Like so many things UEFA does, they screwed it up and it’s confusing. Lost in all the follow-up to Tottenham Hotspur ’s 4-2 loss to Barcelona in the Champions League group stages was this little nugget: apparently Erik Lamela did a thing and wasn’t even aware of it until today. It turns out that...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Oct 4 3:39 PM
Winksy gets a call! It seems like only yesterday that we were complaining about an entirely different international break, and yet now here we are again, looking ahead to another one. Today, there’s further news on that front as Gareth Southgate has released his roster for the upcoming Nations Le...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Oct 4 1:06 PM
According to a report from Belgium, Jan’s injury is worse than we thought. Tottenham Hotspur really could’ve used Jan Vertonghen in defense during Wednesday’s match against Barcelona in the Champions League , but it looks as though Spurs will need to do without him for the next few weeks. Accordi...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Oct 4 10:32 AM
Spurs gave up four goals, but Pochettino was proud of the way they fought back through adversity. Tottenham Hotspur might have lost to FC Barcelona in the Champions League on Wednesday, but their manager is pleased with the fight of his team, if not the final result. Spurs conceded after just two...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Oct 4 9:48 AM
Lionel Messi is very good at football, and other lessons learned. Oof. A depleted Tottenham Hotspur side, one missing seven first team players to injury, lost 4-2 to Barcelona at Wembley Stadium on Wednesday night. Barca got the win behind a brace from Lionel Messi, a stunner from Ivan Rakitic, a...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Oct 4 8:36 AM
Spurs beat up Huddersfield and get beaten up by Barcelona. All in a week’s work. It’s a mixed bag for Greg, Ben, and Rob this week as they take on a good performance against Huddersfield and a not as good performance against Barcelona. We look into the cotinuing improvement of Harry Kane and Erik...

Love Island and fun jobs. Hi, Hoddlers! Here’s what was almost yesterday’s ramble. Ramble of the Day A couple of months ago, I became very curious about Britain’s summer obsession Love Island , and after one of you told me that Hulu carries it in the U.S., my sisters and I decided to watch. We’re...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed Oct 3 10:39 PM
It’s only two matches, but this is not going well. Tottenham Hotspur ’s Champions League campaign is not looking good as the north London side fell to FC Barcelona by a final score of 4-2 Wednesday night at Wembley Stadium. It did not take the Catalonians long to get on the board. A great pass ou...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed Oct 3 9:56 PM
If Harry Kane’s status as one of the best strikers in the world was ever in doubt, his goal against Barcelona in the Champions League group stage should put that to bed. Spurs’ go-to goalscorer did his best to get his team back into the match, down 2-0 at the time against the Spanish champions. F...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed Oct 3 5:00 PM
It’s the biggest matchup of the group stages, but both sides are going into this match feeling pessimistic. THE CHAAAAAAAAAAAAMPIOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONS This match has been circled on the calendar ever since the Champions League draw took place. Tottenham Hotspur vs. Barcelona, in the Champions League...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed Oct 3 2:21 PM
Easy for you to say, Poch! Barcelona’s a very good team with a host of outstanding players, but if you ask anyone to name a Barca player, the first one they’re going to say is Lionel Messi. Arguably the best footballer of all time, even as his career begins to wind down he is still a force to be...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed Oct 3 7:30 AM
Paulo Gazzaniga, his dog, and a hidden talent. Hey, everyone! I was very close to rambling about something else today, but I ended up stumbling upon a form of ramble jackpot. Ramble of the Day We all know Paulo Gazzaniga, third-choice Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper currently getting a run of games...
Cartilage Free Captain - Tue Oct 2 8:22 PM
Luke Amos had a great preseason for Tottenham, but the rest of his season has been cut short. More bad news, but at least it’s not news that is actively detrimental to Tottenham’s first team. According to @Lilywhite_rose on Twitter, Spurs academy graduate Luke Amos is out for the rest of the seas...
Cartilage Free Captain - Tue Oct 2 1:53 PM
Hnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnng Remember when we reported that Christian Eriksen and Mousa Dembele were likely to return in time to play Barcelona in the Champions League on Wednesday Well, there’s some team news out this morning. TEAM NEWS: @dele_official (hamstring), @ChrisEriksen8 (abdomen), @mousad...
Cartilage Free Captain - Tue Oct 2 9:00 AM
Harry Kane has not been himself lately, but what if it’s just mis-proprioception? Since he started his career, Harry Kane has never been the most explosive and speedy player. Indeed, it was that lack of explosiveness that made people think he was a one season wonder, and a tap in merchant. Way ba...
Cartilage Free Captain - Tue Oct 2 8:49 AM
In a Spanish language interview with MARCA, Poch says his history with Espanyol precludes him ever managing Barcelona. Mauricio Pochettino has always said, when asked, that he could never manage Barcelona thanks to his past history with RCD Espanyol. Those responses have always seemed to be respo...
Cartilage Free Captain - Tue Oct 2 7:30 AM
Out of place color combinations. Hi, everyone! I really love that picture of Harry Kane. Ramble of the Day Yesterday, I stumbled across a picture of someone wearing an item of clothing that was both green and purple. It is an unusual combination, and the actual combination of colors was fine. Yet...
Cartilage Free Captain - Mon Oct 1 7:42 PM
A glimmer of good news? Much has been said already about Tottenham Hotspur ’s injury woes leading up to Wednesday’s hugely anticipated match against Barcelona in the Champions League . However, Barca’s not exactly had the easiest time of it either. Today the Catalan giants announced their 20-man...
Cartilage Free Captain - Mon Oct 1 7:17 PM
Things are mostly OK but the decline of Mousa Dembele almost certainly means there’s trouble ahead. We’re now almost 20% of the way through this year’s Premier League. We’ve had the first Champions League group stage match as well. So let’s do a bit of digging into the numbers to see how Spurs lo...
Cartilage Free Captain - Mon Oct 1 4:31 PM
Spurs could be handed a big boost. With injuries mounting, Tottenham Hotspur could see two of their biggest stars return against Barcelona on Wednesday as the club looks to rebound from a bitterly disappointing beginning to their Champions League campaign. According to Matt Law of The Telegraph,...
Cartilage Free Captain - Mon Oct 1 2:19 PM
It’s a bellwether to the stadium actually opening, and an important one. According to the Evening Standard , Tottenham Hotspur are expected to begin the process of laying down the pitch at their new stadium this week. This action would be the strongest indication yet that things are progressing a...
Cartilage Free Captain - Mon Oct 1 8:02 AM
Identifying the world’s nicest footballers. Hi, all! Let’s talk about nice things — or rather, nice people. Ramble of the Day Many moons ago, I casually said something along the lines of Son Heung-min being a universally adored footballer. Of course, I stand by my opinion. I still cannot think of...
Cartilage Free Captain - Sun Sep 30 12:39 PM
Spurs’ injury list is getting longer after Vertonghen and Dembele were withdrawn with knocks at halftime of Saturday’s match. Tottenham Hotspur got a big win on Saturday over Huddersfield, one that gave them 15 points from seven matches and puts them in fourth place in the table. However, it pote...
