For years now, Tottenham Hotspur fans have been made to live in the shadow of Arsenal. While the Gunners may not have picked up a trophy in eight years, their continuous success on the pitch and regular Champions League participation has seen those at White Hart Lane glance envious eyes down Seven Sisters road at their north London counterparts.
With much coveted Champions League places up for grabs, this Sundays North London derby is set to be one of the most fiercely contested of modern times. But who out of these two rivals would make it into a ‘north London XI’
What. A. Goal. A fitting striker to win any encounter as Bale's rocket ensured Spurs came away from Upton Park with all three points. But while his effort was stunning, cracks are appearing in any areas of the field as Nick Harris points out, believing Sigurdsson and Carroll could play a pivotal role in the last 11 games of the season.
Let's be honest - we're missing Sandro in the middle of the park. Yes, Scott Parker can come in to play the defensive midfielder role, but the 1940's fighter pilot hasn't offered a similar threat to his Brazilian teammate since his return to the starting XI. With that in mind, Matt Walsh looks at the possibility of Vertonghen stepping further into the midfield to partner Mousa Dembele.
“In a world full of United’s, City’s and Rover’s; there is only on Hotspur” Spurs fans often gloatingly declare to their rivals. It is seen as a badge of honour, if you will, amongst Tottenham Hotspur supporters, much like the term ‘Yid’.
He may've been a surprise arrival on deadline day back in August, but since making the number one spot his own; Hugo Lloris hasn't looked back. Now a cornerstone in the Tottenham Hotspur defence, James Swan looks at whether the Frenchman isn't just the best in England, but even the world...
This may seem a pointless question to ask on the face of it. A lot of fans would argue that surely all the support Bale can get will help him flourish.
With just 12 games between now and the end of the season, the race for fourth place is beginning to heat up. While Chelsea are likely to finish third and City second, a top four finish looks set to be a straight race between Spurs and Arsenal. But how many points will we need between now and the end of the season to secure Champions League football? Nick Harris investigates...
Tottenham Hotspur are beginning to make a habit of developing the latest upcoming talent, with Ledley King, Jamie O'Hara and Steven Caulker three to have recently come through the youth ranks. However, the current hotbed of talent has seen one player emerge as one of the finest in recent years, as Nikhil Saglani points out.
With votes due to be cast by fellow professionals next month, we make an early prediction as to the likely nominees and contenders for the Premier League's best player this season.
Hearing that Jermain Defoe will be ruled out for three weeks would be enough to make any Tottenham Hotspur fan despair. While the news isn't great, Togo losing to Burkina Faso on Sunday night means Emmanuel Adebayor will be returning to White Hart Lane for the weekend encounter with Newcastle United, with Nick Harris salivating at the prospect of the striker linking up with January arrival Lewis Holbty for the first time.
