Tottenham LIVE: Spurs forum and blog
I shall not gloss over what was a pretty dismal performance from Tottenham at home to Liverpool this lunchtime. What I will say is that Spurs a few years ago would have lost this game and although we didn't play well, we showed resilience and kept going to claim a point and remain unbeaten at the start of this new season.
I felt that Janssen was very unlucky to start on the bench today after impressing against Palace last time out, but it's hard to argue against Dele starting when he is fit. I still feel we would do better with 2 up front bit that something for another...
Another Saturday and another....no, wait. It lunchtime this time. Too much normality is surely not right these days.
Spurs welcome Liverpool to the ever decreasing Lane for a match that has not always ended well for us in recent seasons. Not well at all. Last season we saw the first game of Klopp and it was a high intensity affair.
This game though is intriguing for different reasons. Spurs have started okay. In the first game we were slow in the first half but much better in the second half and very unlucky to leave with just a point.
Against Palace we were dominant....
The game today panned out pretty much as my match preview said it would! Jansen started , but it was not Eriksen as I had thought who dropped out, but Dele Alli. In some way , that was a sensible decision by the manager as Dele had looked short on fitness and maybe even confidence at Everton after the struggles of the Euro's.
Spurs started much brighter today and it was hard to even know how we went in at 0-0 in the first half. Hennessy in the Palace goal seemed to be made out of bricks as everything that flew at him hit him, he saved or blocked.
You could see the...
Another Saturday. Another 3PM kick off?!! What is happening in football these days? I'm sure we'll be back to normal soon. You know, Sunday, Tuesday, Saturday, Wednesday.
It's the first home game of the season and well, to be honest it's pretty strange. A new stadium being built around us, a part of the Lane already gone. I just wonder what that will do to the atmosphere and with high winds predicted, there could be a couple of non on the pitch aspects affecting this game.
We shall see, but in the meantime, let's look at the visit of Crystal Palace.
Palace have had a...
As we draw nearer to our second game of the new season and our first of the season at the slowly disappearing White Hart Lane, what did we learn from that first outing against Everton?
Firstly it was always going to be a tricky game. With a poor end to last season still concerning some, it was important that we didn't lose.
The first half suggested that the players were still reeling from that final day thumping and maybe still hungover from the debacle of the Euro's.
Spurs looked leggy and at the back we looked out of sorts. I feel that Vertonghen is a weak link and...
