Will Tottenham be more of a team without Bale?

Behind the summer shoots of optimism resides the bitter inevitability that Spurs will shortly be losing their best player in the modern era. We have historically been a great nurturer of the enigmatic genius, the likes of Gazza and Berbatov able to show their true worth at the flick of a switch. But has the… Continue reading Will Tottenham be more of a team without Bale?

Something living in the pitch?

It was during the decidedly underwhelming FL92 on Sky that Ledley King announced that there was something secretive living under the pitch at White Hart Lane. What could it be? A cowering Florentino Perez? Arsene Wenger’s chequebook? Maybe even a chained Jonathan Barnett furiously thrashing out a new contract for Bale. I think few could… Continue reading Something living in the pitch?

The great summer Bale out – if it happens, it has to soon

The Hotspur Way is used to seeing some generally ridiculous statements on its Twitter timeline, but there was something particularly ridiculous about something we spotted today in amongst the universal condemnation handed out towards Adrian Durham* following his mugging in Rio. “Not much gossip today hey Spurs fans! #boring #rubbish” Yes, that was an actual Tweet. For… Continue reading The great summer Bale out – if it happens, it has to soon

Time for Tottenham to keep up their end of the deal

Nearly 12 months, 36 Premier League games and a 25 goal haul of Gareth Bale-fired goals later, and for all the fluctuating of players and management, it seems nothing has really changed at Tottenham Hotspur. The catering at our immortal cathedral still tastes like something Mike Tyson spat out circa 1995. The old git who… Continue reading Time for Tottenham to keep up their end of the deal

Reality checks, panic stations and top-four home truths

Now that the dust has settled on the Everton game and we’ve all had 24 hours to calm down a little, now might seem as good a time as ever to sift through the wreckage that is our now defunct seven point gap (R.I.P) over the Arse. But far from finding the black-box and weeping… Continue reading Reality checks, panic stations and top-four home truths

A sticky Toffee for Spurs tomorrow?

If tomorrow’s game against Everton is the second of our eight remaining cup finals in the Premier League, then we seem to have stumbled into it with all the preparation of a raging alcoholic going on a 12-hour bender before a job interview. The carnage we managed to inflict upon ourselves within the 2-2 struggle… Continue reading A sticky Toffee for Spurs tomorrow?

Swansea 1 Tottenham 2 – one down, five to go?

A hard-fought 2-1 win over a handy Swansea City side might not exactly have us cracking out the champers, but with seven cup finals still remaining, perhaps we can at least give ourselves a nice pat on the back after success in our first one. Indeed, with the team now carrying a crushing Andy Reid-sized… Continue reading Swansea 1 Tottenham 2 – one down, five to go?

Gareth Bale and BT Sport – what does it mean for Spurs?

It perhaps tells you everything you need to know about football in today’s age, that a seethingly bland corporate press release is now enough to get the pulses racing. It may well be more a reflection of The Hotspur Way’s limited threshold of excitement, that BT’s recent announcement that it’s signed our very own Gareth… Continue reading Gareth Bale and BT Sport – what does it mean for Spurs?

End of a drought and start of a flood for Jermain Defoe?

Rejoice, revel and praise the Hodge: the Jermain Defoe three-month goal famine has finally ended and by God, didn’t he just end it in style. A well taken brace against a bunch of part-timers in the guise of San Marino the other night is hardly going to bag our JD a Ballon d’Or, but regardless… Continue reading End of a drought and start of a flood for Jermain Defoe?
