#BaleisBack #HolaReguilon

OMG!! Dreams do come true!

I knew he would be back one day, of that I was certain. However I always thought it would be later on in his career when aged 33/34. To say I am excited is an understatement. Yes we all know he will not be match fit for potentially 4 weeks, however this signing will not only have a huge effect on the pitch, but I know it will lift everyone around the club off it. The boy has returned home… as a winner. The more winners we have in the team the closer we will get to that elusive silverware.

#BaleIsBack

Hola Sergio! Bienvenido al club!

After seeing this boy play for Sevilla last year in their successful Europa League campaign I am very excited about him. I’ll be honest other than the semi and final of that competition I haven’t seen much of him. However from what I have seen he looks like a very attacking full back, with a reputation of being the best left back in La Liga last season so I can’t wait to see the competition he gives Ben Davies and what he can deliver on the pitch.

Spurs ITK

Source – Hercules, Spurs Community – 29th Aug 2020

‘TN ‘may’ prove more difficult to shift than one can imagine. Will not share here why, as it will get out everywhere. Do not get too excited on the target man we may end up landing. He can definitely do a job. Not Troy Deeney. Forget any strikers from Bournemouth. We won’t be paying those kind of figures. Neither, whilst I am at it, can’t see anyone paying 25m for Wilson.’

TN = Tanguy N’Dombele

Real shame about Tanguy, thought he would help us to reach the next level. Has shown in cameo’s his potential although his attitude apparently is not to the level it needs to be. I’m 50/50 on him, let him settle after a difficult year or sell whilst still valued high and remove the attitude problem completely.

A must is a back up striker with all the games we will play next year with the Europa League, League Cup, FA Cup and Premier League it would be inhumane of us to play Harry in them all.

Spurs Quotes – #6 Juande Ramos

Spurs Quotes

In the sixth of the series of Spurs quotes, our former manager Juande Ramos, describes his relationship between himself and the players on the training ground.

“On the training pitch I speak English and the players understand me perfectly.”

It is well documented that Ramos did however have very little ability to speak English and it makes you think what the board were doing when they lynched Jol and bought the Spaniard in. I actually think “run about a bit” Pavlyuchenko had a better grasp on the language of the land than Juande did.

Tottenham Hotspur 2012/13 Kit Update

Leaked-Spurs-Home-Kit-2013This as I have been reliably been informed is the new Tottenham Hotspur home shirt for the 2012/13 Premier League season. Our contract with Puma is coming to an end at the end of month and UnderArmor the American sportswear company have taken over the task of making our kits.

The kits will probably be shown off at the start of July or on the pre-season tour of America later in the month. Also the shirt has been described as being of better quality than the ones Puma made for us, and therefore will not fall apart by the time our season goes off the rails at the start of the year.

UPDATE: – Apparently the leak has come from a Canadian sports shop in Toronto, who has started selling the shirt already. This is before we have announced it let alone started to sell it.

I think they might be receiving an unkind letter from Tottenham Hotspur Football Club in the very near future.

Tottenham Hotspur 2011/12 Season Video Review

So after some of the heartbreak of the Champions League final has passed, I thought I would do a write up analysis of our season this year. However why write about the season when you can show a video of it made by @YidV2Dan.

Infamous within most Spurs circles for his top quality videos, this one delivers no less and carries on the terrific work he does. Whilst watching you really remember why you support the wonderful football club that is Tottenham Hotspur, even through the ups and downs of a whole season.

Enjoy the video and follow Dan @YidV2Dan on Twitter

Spurs Quotes – #5 Ossie Ardiles

Spurs Quotes

In the fifth of the series of Spurs quotes, Ossie Ardiles is asked a question by a reporter at the unveiling of a certain superstar German that signed for Spurs.

Reporter: “Is Klinsmann Spurs’ biggest ever signing?”

Ossie Ardiles: “No, I was.”

This exchange took place at the press conference to unveil Jurgen Klinsmann in 1994, showing Ossie’s great personality and humour. The thing is he was probably being completely serious.
