In a summer which has seen the club come under fire from its own fans and players for the supposed lack of ambition in the transfer market up to now, the Premier League season started with what looked to be a tricky away day to Rafa Benitez’s Newcastle side – who unforgettably hammered us 5-1 in the last game of the 2015/16 season. Continue reading “Spurs get their season off to a flyer with 2-0 away win at Newcastle.”
With Pre-Season now out of the way, our Premier League campaign begins with a tricky looking away trip to Newcastle for the Sunday early kickoff – a fixture in which we lost 5-1 to hand Arsenal second place two seasons ago.
A new season brings new ambitions, new teams, new stadiums and breakthrough players and in today’s article, I have written about the three Spurs players which I believe can make the breakthrough and establish their selves in and around Mauricio Pochettino’s first team this year.

Chelsea v Tottenham Hotspur
Manchester City v Arsenal
I would say that the four quarter-finals went the way of the teams who were expected to qualify. Chelsea made hard work of beating Manchester United in the tie which was too close to call, although they could’ve won by two or three goals more if it wasn’t for David de Gea’s performance in the United goal. With Keylor Navas putting in some less than sparking performances for Real Madrid this season, United fans must be fearing the worst when the Summer transfer window opens.
