A new video from Spurs TV sees backup goalkeeper Michel Vorm give an insight into the psychology of penalties.

 

 

Back in October we began a competition to win a copy of ‘The Ultimate Spurs Quiz Book’ signed by author Chris Cowlin himself. We were fortunate to have a large number of entries who (mostly) correctly answered that Aaron Lennon had joined the club from Leeds United back in 2005.

We placed all our entrants into a pot and randomly picked out the winner. That lucky winner is Clive Newbury, so congratulations Clive!

If you’d like to get a hand on a copy of Chris’ new book, you can do so from Amazon and all good bookstores.

Keep an eye out for future competitions that we may soon be bringing your way!

 

The man who can’t stop scoring continued his fine recent run last night, netting twice for the England under-21′s. Harry Kane, a revelation for club and country this season, opened the scoring with a delightful dink over the out rushing opposition keeper before tapping home to give a 2-0 lead to the Three Lions.

Unfortunately Kane and co. could not hold on for the win however, eventually going down 3-2 to their French counterparts. The game also involved two other Spurs youngsters, Alex Pritchard (currently on loan at Brentford) and Tom Carroll (on loan at Swansea), the latter named captain for the fixture. Eric Dier sat out of the game, with England under-21 boss Gareth Southgate’s permission to continue his development training with the Spurs first team.

Sunday morning football discussion show, Sunday Supplement focused on the Tottenham blame game yesterday. The panellists  focused on the usual subject of the poor signings of the past two years, and named Baldini and Levy as the men to blame.

 

You voted, and you selected Gareth Bale as your all time Spurs Premier League Left Midfielder with 69% of the vote, storming ahead of David Ginola with 28%. Nacer Chadli snared 2% of your votes but Andy Sinton became the first player in this process to fail to register a single vote.

It’s now time to move on to the next position and see who could be joining Bale, Anderton, Ziege, Carr and Lloris in the favoured eleven. This week it’s the turn of the central defence. One candidate in particular sticks out atop the parapet and as such we’re automatically entering Ledley King into the XI. However we need to find his central partner in a tightly contested slot. Somehow we think this might be considerably closer than last weeks vote, so here’s the contenders:

As we put aside yet another league defeat, the trial continues to find the true antagonist in this dangerous game of cat and mouse that Daniel Levy and ENIC maintain with the fans. Up in the board room, Levy and his executive board room team must now know that fan discontent is at an all time high since the heraldship of Joe Lewis’ right hand man began. The bubble has now burst for many staunch supporters even, disillusioned at a seemingly nonplussed attitude toward club loyalists.

We as fans will continue to search high and low for answers to the ever growing list of issues that weigh so heavily upon us. Could it be the releasing of funds? Perhaps. The tight fist approach that Levy has stuck by, particularly in recent seasons, may not have been meagre but has it provided enough to fuel a strong charge at closing the gap between the top sides and ourselves? Or is it a distant owner, so far detached from the club he’s rarely in the same country, let alone postcode?
