    Alderweireld twice refused new contract, wanted huge wage hike

    This is one of these discussion where there is a great case of perception versus reality. We have the sixth highest average salary in the EPL. Our average salary equates to about £70k p/w. Does anyone really believe that Toby is still on £50k p/w? We are behind the usual suspects in the wage...

    Match Threads Spurs vs Borussia Dortmund - Match Thread

    Dortmund showing once again the importance of scouting an opponent. They have done their homework on us. Like a lot of teams who have come to Wembley this season and last.

    Spurs v Borussia Dortmund - team news

    I am of the same opinion. We have been lucky in a number of games rather than compact and resolute in terms of our defending. I know it is the sign of a good team to win when not playing well, but it is only a matter of time for a team not defending well to get punished. See Chelsea against...

    Match Threads Spurs vs Leicester - Match Thread

    From a contact who knows Tielemans: I think it was a matter of wanting to make sure he was going to play immediately and a lot. Spurs may not have wanted to give him that guarantee. At Leicester he has a French coach who knows the French league and Monaco and what Tielemans did there. He’s also...

    Need a sub now Poch. This might be the game to get on another central defender and keep the wing backs.

    Spurs v Leicester - team news

    It is the game they were scheduled to play the weekend of the League Cup final. It was brought forward to an open week which has benefited City in the short term.

    Match Threads Spurs vs Newcastle - Match Thread

    I alluded to this the other night. All but City and Liverpool have come to Wembley to play for a 1-0 win or draw. Even Man United despite the glowing praise they received from the media in the aftermath of the game. It is also a sign of how we far we have come as a team that clubs come in and...

    Huge game now against Newcastle. We play first this weekend in the early game. Win and we go second ahead of City and close the gap on Liverpool.

    Match Threads Spurs vs Watford - Match Thread

    The interesting thing for me is that we just beat the seventh placed team in the league and they have shown no ambition to go and win the game. We have also dominated them with a shadow of the team we can put out. It really shows the gap that exists technically, tactically and financially...

    The irony now is the ref will probably add on about 5 minutes for their time wasting.

    Match Threads Crystal Palace vs Spurs - FA Cup Match Thread

    If we are no longer interested in competing to win the League Cup and the FA Cup then that should be the club's stated policy and philosophy. Five or ten quid a game to watch the home ties and a team selection based on our U23s or youth. If that is how we approached some of these games then the...

    Had we advanced on Thursday then today's performance or set up might have been more forgivable. To go out Thursday and then again in the manner we did today is what is so frustrating.

    Hey Poch, We are not going to add to those black and white videos if we don't actually win a trophy. The modern fan/blogger/tourist fan will will hold you in high esteem with another top four finish, but for an older generation of fan you need to add your name to a list that includes Rowe...
