    La Liga to stage one game a season in USA

    Such a stupid idea on so many levels. Imagine if a club (let's say Barcelona) has to fly to the States for a Saturday match against Sevilla and then fly back to Europe for a Champions League match on Wednesday in Liverpool? What a nightmare for the players from a travel and recovery...

    The Spurs Youth Thread - 2018/19

    I imagine even less of a chance to be in the starting XI, but there he is:

    The Spurs Youth Thread - 2018/19

    Does anyone think there is a chance T J Eyoma gets into the match tomorrow? With this being the preseason and him being 1 of only 3 healthy CBs I would like to see him get a few minutes in the second half. Also would like to see Georgiou get the start tomorrow.

    Spurs pre-season 2018

    Good call on Amos, I hope he really gets some opportunities to shine in the preseason. I really think Foyth will surprise a lot of people this season, it seems like ever since we started talking about De Ligt coming in for Toby everyone forgot about him.

    Spurs pre-season 2018

    Couldn't agree more. I think the preseason is absolutely crucial for Onomah and CCV. I would also like to see Kazaiah Sterling get a good look this summer on the US Tour. We have seen time and again that buying the likes of Soldado, N'Jie, Janssen, and Llorente has been futile as far as...

    Pochettino: pre-season is going to be 'tricky'

    Personally, this is the most exciting reason to tune in to the preseason matches. Would love to see Kaz Sterling get a decent amount of minutes up front. Additionally, it will be interesting to see how well CCV, Foyth, and Onomah perform. It has the potential to be a very important...

    Anthony Martial

    Excellent point, I would say this is the best reason I’ve seen thus far for bringing in Martial. He could be the difference between winning or drawing some of the matches against clubs that park the bus/we struggle to break down. Also excited about the Kovacic link, potentially looks like a good...

    Llorente delivers an update on his Tottenham future

    Excellent point, Llorente never really found his footing with us and the preseason could be a good opportunity for him to get consecutive matches (if still with us). It will really be interesting to see what happens with Llorente and the kids as well as what happens in the transfer market (as...

    Llorente delivers an update on his Tottenham future

    I wish nothing but the best for him. Hopefully he moves on this summer once some offers come in for him. It is too bad it didn't work out for him, but I think it is really difficult to back up Kane no matter how experienced the player is. Personally, I would like to see if one of our...

    Tanguy Ndombele

    I agree, it is really difficult to gauge the talent ceiling for Ndombele on the few clips we have all seen. I think he definitely has some potential and could develop into a good player under Pochettino. The real question for me is if we do get him this summer where does he fit in to the...

    Wilmar Barrios

    I think that is key for Dier, people complain that he looks inconsistent at CB, but if he rarely plays there it will be difficult for him to develop (I am on the fence for what is his best position). As for Barrios, I honestly haven't seen much of him apart from a few videos, but I think Poch...

    VAR (Video Assistant Referee)

    Yes, and I think it has been used very effectively today at the World Cup. I guess I am basing my opinion on VAR off of what has happened in the FA Cup and other domestic cup competitions. I think VAR will be good for the game, it just may take some time for the way it is implemented to be...

    VAR (Video Assistant Referee)

    My main fear with VAR is that it will undermine the officials and cause them to lose confidence in themselves. Furthermore, if you are a ref it could cause you to be lazy: Why make a call when you can just stop the game and go look at the monitor? Totally agree, it has the potential to really...

    Spurs interested in signing Mario Götze

    Very affordable at 18 million, but looks to be a little bit of a risk due to health concerns. He would be a high profile signing, but I doubt we go for him.

    Matthijs de Ligt

    Such a dilemma as to what is Dier's best position. I think currently Dier is a much better DM than CB for certain. However, if Dier consistently played at CB I think he would get some of the concentration lapses, etc. out of his game and become less of a liability. I think if we sell Toby and...
