Arsenal 1 Spurs 1- Pochettino reduces Wenger to Allardyce-ball

Kane Scores Against Arsenal

I don’t think it would be going too far to say this was the most impressive Spurs performance at Arsenal in recent times. 75 minutes of high intensity Pochettino football. It almost looked like the hosts had mistakenly taken the field against Bayern again, granted minus the clinical finishing. Continue reading

Everton 0 Spurs 1 – Kane wins fifth place for Tottenham

Kane vs Everton

Spurs finished the season with a well earned win, leaving them a creditable fifth. Not as many points as last year but a higher placed finish. It felt better too.

Whatever Tottenham fans feel about this season, a look at our opponents shows the grass is not always greener. Despite having Roberto Martinez, a much praised manager, and

Spurs 0 Manchester City 1 – no capitulation but Aguero still proves Tottenham’s nemesis

Spurs City - Ryan Mason shoots

After conceding 15 goals in our last three meetings with Manchester City, this was certainly an improvement. Not only did we restrict our opponents to one goal, we were somewhat unlucky to finish up losing.

Spurs Burnley

 

With the Champions League places now almost certainly beyond Spurs’ reach, my hope for the remaining games of the season was that Pochettino would put some work into improving his defence. With that in mind, I suppose I can’t Continue reading

Manchester United 3 Spurs 0 – Pochettino out-thought as van Gaal’s United finally click

Pochettino At United

 

The big game. Spurs’ chance to stake their claim to a Champions League place. Mauricio Pochettino’s opportunity to prove he has usurped Louis van Gaal, the new generation of tacticians replacing the old guard. It turns out van Gaal still Continue reading

QPR 1 Spurs 2 – Kane revives Tottenham’s Champions League hopes

Kane QPR

 

Two wins in four days and Spurs’ top four hopes are back on track. Now just four points off third place it’s a real possibility, even if the form of Liverpool and Arsenal make those two favourites.

Mirroring the midweek victory against Continue reading
