Dig within. Within is the wellspring of Good; and it is always ready to bubble up, if you just dig. – Marcus Aurelius Perpetual gloom and doom hangs over White Hart Lane these days, at least that’s how it has felt the last few weeks. Spurs’ terrible run of form would normally be enough to […]

this is part X in the “wrong side XI” series, where i’ll be selecting my very own starting eleven, assuming of course that i could choose any player from any team in the world. you can read the rules i’ll be following to make my team selection, and what formation i’ll be squeezing them into, […]

Looking at the latest Premier League Form Guide, I should feel really good about Tottenham’s season thus far. Monday’s 2-0 victory over Villa was Spurs’ eighth in their last nine — the only blip being the 2-2 draw against high-flying Newcastle back in October — with only Manchester City performing better during the same spell. […]

It may just be me, but I feel like my recent posts have taken a rather pessimistic view of the beautiful game. A quick look at my front page shows a total of seven non-round-up posts, and four of them are nothing but me bitching about some current aspect of the game. I must think […]

the problem with this season and last for tottenham? they set the bar too damn high. make it to the quarterfinals of the champions league, and suddenly everyone expects you to do it again next year. such are the risks of success, i guess. despite turning in a massively entertaining –if not cardiac– first half of […]

Waking up yesterday morning to see Bale posing with the trophy, looking all spiffy in his tux, was certainly a pleasant surprise. I honestly hadn’t expected him to […]

sometimes i feel like an irresponsible blogger when i post link-themed articles back-to-back. yes, it’s lazy. but i can’t even begin to tell you, nor do i think i need to, how much easier they are to write. in the case of these “ten words or less” postings, i only have to come up with […]

“they’ve done well, but the inevitable is there,” said ray wilkins during his commentary towards the end of last night’s game. and while the former chelsea first team coach’s words were a generous yet accurate assessment of spurs’ performance, the sting was still there. we all knew it would end this way. thank god for ray, […]

I’ve been waiting to write this article for over two whole weeks, ever since the Champions League quarter-final draw. And while there’s no doubt that it gave us some very tantalizing match-ups, there was only one that I was really going to care about. The match up? My own, personal Clásico: Tottenham Hotspur FC versus Real Madrid […]
