Tottenham LIVE: Spurs forum and blog
As another season draws to a close with a familiar feel of transition and little to celebrate at White Hart Lane, it's time for me to lighten the mood, get out a slightly stained red carpet and present (metaphorically) my awards for the 2014/15 season!
Pensioner of the season(s)
Let me start with a heartfelt award for someone who has given great service to Tottenham but also been a great ambassador to Football in general. As he finally hangs up his boots tomorrow, and how fitting would it be if he got at least a few minutes on the pitch, l give...
Spurs ended their Premier League campaign in style as Harry Kane’s header sealed a 5th place finish in Mauricio Pochettino’s inaugural season at the helm.
Eric Dier’s irresistible cross found the head of our 31-goal striker deep into the first half after Spurs had probed the Toffees’ box for most of the game.
And despite sights of goal for Brendan Galloway and Kevin Mirallas for the hosts, Pochettino’s men held on to a comfortable finish to the 2014/15 season.
Stoke’s 6-1 thrashing of Liverpool meant that we only needed 3 points to seal 5th place, and means that we...
Alright, we all know that it is extremely old news that Real Madrid came barging into White Hart Lane once Luka Modrić showed his value.

As we approach our final Premier League game against Everton on Sunday, both hope and excitement will permeate through our fan-base, as the summer transfer window, and ultimately, player recruitment begins.
After the unforgettable nightmare of the summer window in 2013 – which is still making us suffer to this day – you will be relieved to hear that it is rumoured Franco Baldini is to have a limited role when it comes to transfer activity this time around. In fact, The Daily Mail Online has even gone as far as saying that Baldini will be handed his P45 after the...
Our final home game of the season ended in a comfortable victory over relegation battling Hull.
Nacer Chadli and Danny Rose scored to solidify our 6th place position and keep up the chase for a Europa League spot.
Here's how the players fared.
Lloris - 6 - A quiet game for the keeper and a clean sheet. Can't ask for too much more.
Dier - 7 - A good game; defensively sound for the most part and put in some dangerous balls into the box.
Vertonghen - 6 - A solid game with nothing to particularly write home about.
Fazio - 5 - Had some lapses...
