Cartilage Free Captain - Sat Dec 9 7:50 PM
Besties forver. We were really, really (really, REALLY) hoping that some pics would surface after today’s match between Tottenham Hotspur and Stoke City that showed Son Heung-Min’s reaction upon meeting Kevin Wimmer. After all, it’s the first time these two have met on the football pitch since Bi...

It’s not 4-0, but it’s +4. That counts! The last three times Spurs have faced Stoke City , they have won 4-0. It wasn’t the same scoreline, but it was another dominant win for Tottenham Hotspur . Spurs scored four second half goals after a first half Stoke own goal, and Tottenham romped to a cris...

Kane got his 11th and 12th Premier League goals in Spurs’ dominant win at Wembley Stadium. Tottenham Hotspur are back. That’s the report from Harry Kane , who scored a brace against the Potters en route to Spurs’ big 5-1 win at Wembley Stadium on Saturday. The win snapped a Premier League winless...

It’s been a rough November, but Tottenham can stop the bleeding today with a win over Stoke. November hasn’t been especially great to Tottenham Hotspur . While it saw them pick up big wins in the Champions League against Real Madrid and at Dortmund, Spurs got hit with the injury and exhaustion bu...

Tottenham’s recent results have been mostly flukes, but in a tight race for the top four they may still be a big deal. Mike Goodman, formerly of Grantland and ESPN and now a co-host on the Double Pivot, has jokingly talked about the rotating “crisis conch” that gets passed around between top four...
Cartilage Free Captain - Fri Dec 8 7:38 PM
Its a lovefest when Heung Min Son and Kevin Wimmner reunite. That would be two points in twelve for Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League and that is a sub-optimal record at best. Its probably the worst spell for the club since the 2014-15 season and Poch has been surprisingly positive through...
Cartilage Free Captain - Fri Dec 8 5:25 PM
Stoke have been fine, but no more. Were it not for Xherdan Shaqiri, would Mark Hughes still have a job? The Season So Far Stoke City ’s seen has been okay. In the Premier League these days, ‘okay’ perhaps isn’t quite valued enough – there’s always the temptation to be left wanting more, arguing t...
Cartilage Free Captain - Fri Dec 8 4:32 PM
Some good news on the injury front! There is no question that Spurs have struggled without Toby Alderweireld since the Belgian defender went down with a hamstring injury during the 3-1 win over Real Madrid on November 1st. He hasn’t trained or played since, and spoke about his fears that the inju...
Cartilage Free Captain - Fri Dec 8 8:26 AM
We’ve made it to the end of the week, Hoddlers! Let’s get to down to business. Ramble of the Day I spent a lot of my day yesterday talking about potatoes, to multiple people, in different conversations, sometimes unprompted. From before lunch to well past dinner, I talked — and thought — about th...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Dec 7 10:31 PM
But Nottingham Forest vs. Arsenal was, because naturally. There’s good news and there’s bad news. The good news is that the date has been set for Tottenham Hotspur ’s home match against AFC Wimbledon in the FA Cup, and it’ll take place on January 7 at Wembley Stadium. The bad news is that it was...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Dec 7 8:30 PM
Danny Rose says there’s no rift between him and Mauricio Pochettino. We should believe him. Danny Rose is once again the center of some controversy. One day after Tottenham Hotspur ’s 3-0 win over APOEL in the Champions League, Rose is back in the headlines and for all the wrong reasons: televisi...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Dec 7 4:40 PM
The field is set for the first knock-out round, and there are a couple tricky potential match ups for Spurs. With the conclusion of yesterday’s matches, the field is now set for the 2017-18 Champions League Round of 16. All that’s left is the draw to determine who plays who. This is the first tim...
Cartilage Free Captain - Thu Dec 7 8:03 AM
It’s nice to be here after a nice little win in the Champions League. Hello, Hoddlers! That was a fun Champions League group stage, wasn’t it? (Remember the old days, when this team couldn’t get out of a group with Monaco, Bayer Leverkusen, and CSKA Moscow? Sorry, I’ll stop.) First things first:...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed Dec 6 11:07 PM
Three goals, three points, and one job done. Wembley wasn’t full, and the game would have no effect on Spurs’ fate in the Champions League, but that didn’t matter. The Lilywhites still came out and did their job. Tottenham beat APOEL 3-0 on Wednesday, and they scored some really nice goals in the...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed Dec 6 8:54 PM
First half strikes from FERNANDO and Son Heung-Min put Spurs in firm control after the first half. Tottenham Hotspur had absolutely no pressure to get anything out of today’s match against APOEL in Wembley Stadium, as they have already clinched their Champions League group and are guaranteed on t...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed Dec 6 6:01 PM
Tottenham are set to run out the reserves and the kids in a dead-rubber Group of Death Champions League game. Tottenham Hotspur are expected to run out a heavily rotated team of reserve players and youth academy graduates today in what is a dead-rubber, meaningless Champions League match against...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed Dec 6 3:02 PM
Dele has been shopping for agents for a while as he seeks to increase his commercial value. Dele Alli has a new agent. After a months-long courtship, Tottenham’s 21-year old star has signed a deal with sporting agency CAA Sports to represent him. Dele moved on from his previous manager Rob Segal...
Cartilage Free Captain - Wed Dec 6 8:02 AM
Happy match day! Good morning, Hoddlers, and a very happy match day to you all. Before the ramble, feel free to guess who the player in the image above is. I’ll give you all the answer tomorrow. Today’s ramble is less random than yesterday’s, so let’s get to it. Ramble of the Day Remember this li...
Cartilage Free Captain - Tue Dec 5 11:11 PM
Rehashing the 2016 draw between Spurs and Chelsea does no one any favors and puts Clattenburg back in his favorite position: the center of attention. Let’s talk about Mark Clattenburg. By now, most people have seen his comments about the now infamous “Battle of the Bridge” match between Chelsea a...
Cartilage Free Captain - Tue Dec 5 3:41 PM
Academy products Kaziah Sterling and Luke Amos will be in the match day 18 for Spurs. After Tottenham Hotspur defeated Dortmund at the Signal Iduna in Champions League action to win their group, that essentially rendered tomorrow’s home match against APOEL meaningless. It also implied that a high...
Cartilage Free Captain - Tue Dec 5 9:40 AM
Lots and lots of links! Hey, everyone! Before I begin, I’d just like to thank you for the warm welcome yesterday. I really appreciate it! Today, I’ve got some rambling prepared for you that I will connect to football. Shall we? Ramble of the Day Last night, I read an article from GQ about people...
Cartilage Free Captain - Mon Dec 4 9:05 PM
Spurs will host the Wombles at Wembley in a nice, (hopefully) easy FA Cup tie. Oh hey, the draw for the FA Cup was today! That was a surprise, but a welcome one. Tottenham Hotspur drew a home match against League 1 side AFC Wimbledon in the next round, which will be held the week of January 5, 20...
Cartilage Free Captain - Mon Dec 4 5:25 PM
If these projections are true, Spurs’ new home has now more than doubled in cost from its original estimate. If new cost projections put forth by the Daily Mail are accurate, Tottenham Hotspur are expected to have the most expensive stadium in England when it is completed next summer. The Mail re...
Cartilage Free Captain - Mon Dec 4 2:06 PM
The Belgian center back is set for an important scan on his hamstring in two weeks, and are keen to avoid a potentially costly re-injury. Toby Alderweireld hasn’t been seen for Tottenham Hotspur since he limped off the pitch during Spurs’ Champions League win over Real Madrid at Wembley Stadium a...
Cartilage Free Captain - Mon Dec 4 8:00 AM
There’s a new Hoddle writer in town! Hello, people of the Hoddle! I’m Pardeep Cattry, the newest Hoddle writer! You might know me from some writing I’ve done for Carty Free before, most recently a review of that book that everyone keeps blaming Tottenham’s poor run of form on. I’m the resident fe...
