This is one of those situations where you’re just glad to be in the running. It’s International Break week which usually means that things are pretty quiet and settled, without a whole lot of news. Predictably, that also tends to be a time when transfer rumors tend to poke out of the background l...

We got BAZUNU’D. Cast your mind back, gentle readers, to early August when we were still in the throes of the summer transfer window speculation. We had written that Spurs had placed a bid for a very promising Irish goalkeeper by name of Gavin Bazunu , who would potentially join Spurs as soon as...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Sep 6 3:49 PM
Let’s hope that it doesn’t come to that! There are a couple of conflicting reports coming out about Tottenham Hotspur ’s new stadium, the ongoing delay with the safety systems, and when it might open for its first match. The first, from Dan Kilpatrick in the Evening Standard, says that the FA is...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Sep 6 1:55 PM
Spurs had their best defensive performance of the year so naturally we lost to Watford. And it’s before the international break so that’s great too. Greg is joined by Ben Daniels and Reno Wallabout to look at the good, bad, and well, the more bad. We discuss what Spurs did differently and why it...

Revealing taste and personality through television shows. Hey, everyone! Let’s take a prompt from Twitter and work from there.

Fears, in nightmare form. Hey, everyone! This is likely the first and last time I tell you about a dream I had (I mean nightmare) because I usually find sharing dreams to be a bit uninteresting, but it was football related. Ramble of the Day Several weeks ago, I had a dream — or a nightmare — tha...

It’s good to be first at something. Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has another honor added to the list, though this one might be considered a bit more of the dubious variety.

Cartilage Free Captain - Mon Sep 3 4:09 PM
It looks like it’ll be at least November 2018 before we get to see Spurs in the new stadium.

Cartilage Free Captain - Mon Sep 3 3:18 PM
None of these movies are good. Some of them are less not-good than others. Well, that sucked.

Undefeated vs. Undefeated. It’s already been a good weekend for Tottenham Hotspur .

Liverpool’s gotta lose sometime, right? Hello, Carty Freebirds. (Did I just coin a new phrase? YEP!) Today I learned while looking for a feature photo for today’s open thread that Liverpool has a mascot named Mighty Red. That’s dumb. That’s not a mascot that strikes fear into the hearts of young...
