Tottenham LIVE: Spurs forum and blog
When we signed the giant Spaniard for a reported 12m I asked myself the question ... Why?
Where will he fit in? In what scenario will he start games? Or even get minutes?
Two months into the season I'm scratching my head even more as to the logic of the purchase of a striker who will turn 33 in a few months. A like for like for Kane he ain't. A plan B some might say and yes I can 'get' that but were not really a side who go long or put cross after cross into the mixer so to speak. We play with either no wingers or inverted ones at that..
Trippier the only genuine...
Spurs cruise into knockout stages.
In what was a supposed group of death Spurs have qualified with two games to spare and look favourite to top the group for a favourable draw.
It was almost comfortable until it got a little somewhat "Spursy" once Kane went off and conceded soon after but we stood firm and were good value for the win. Would have liked to have taken them to the cleaners but hey ho this is the European champs just dismantled.
Here are my ratings feel free to disagree.
Relatively quiet night for the skipper but made some decent...
So we arrive at Match Day 4 for the biggest game in the Club's history for many a day. We host arguably the best Club side in the world Real Madrid (apparently Poch thinks so) at the home of FA and our temporary home.

Never is that old adage "You have to beat the best, to be the...
Too big for cups?
We're concentrating on the big prizes........
Midweek we chop change because the cups are meaningless, 'we are concentrating on bigger things'
So key players rested and ready for UTD away chance to go second........
Of course the Tottenham that 'hope' to be up there turned up.
This was dull at the best of times. Without Kane we looked devoid of any attacking prowess.
At best the game plan was to nick a point because the all round set up and play of the team was painfully negative.
I can forgive Spurs for losing 0-1 to a Big side if we've given...
There seems to be a gathering tide of opinion that Spurs now have to win something to prove their progress as a club. That the achievements of this young, exciting team essentially mean very little with nothing tangible to show for it. That Mauricio Pochettino cannot establish himself among the elite of football management until he lifts a shiny piece of silverware aloft.
On Wednesday night after the game I got into an altercation with a fellow Spurs fan in the toilets at Wembley. He was incandescent with rage after we had thrown away a two goal half time lead, in what...
