Agree totally.

Most journos are actively anti-Spurs and totally agenda-driven and completely untrustworthy.

At least Ali Gold is pro Spurs and does not have the anti-Spurs agenda so popular in both the written and visual media.

Also don't think that he actively distorts his stories like so many others.
Good shout.

I used to like his material but recently finding it very clickbait-y
The headlines of the Football.London articles have definitely gone that way. We're actually into the realms of "The ONE THING Jose Mourinho must do at Spurs when football returns" territory now. The website itself is terrible as well with it's pop-ups, ads, auto-play videos etc. I've stopped reading them, which is a shame.

Usually listen to his videos in the background whilst doing something else, though. They're not half as bad. I'm sure the clickbait headlines are demanded by his click-hungry bosses.

EDIT: A weird Doh from @Hercules I assume a fatty finger.

I think he's a good, honest journo trying to do his best in a ridiculously competitive environment.

But yeah, the clickbait is annoying. I also dislike the way they tend to squeeze out 10 articles from a single interview/presser, dripfeeding us a single quote at a time to get more clicks.

I remember him from his spurs community days, I even bought his ode to joy book years ago.

I enjoyed this video and worth a watch and some of his articles especially on the younger spurs players are well worth a read.

But as people say if he wasn't writing articles on there I wouldn't go near the football London website.

Easily my favourite Spurs journalist even if he’s had to lean towards the shorter clickbait style due to demands of the job and it’s industry (got to pay the bills).

Would be nice if he could chuck in the occasional long read in the style he used to on here as they were always very high quality.

He does say in the video he could see a KWP for Hojbjerg swap deal as a real possibility.
