Europa League: round of 32 draw

The last 32 fixtures of the Europa League draw looks kind of interesting where it concerns the likes of Tottenham and Lyon. Had they performed better in the Champions League this season, they wouldn’t be playing for the last 16 in the Europa.

Hugo Lloris pulls off STUNNING save to keep Tottenham hopes alive

In The Safety Of Hugo Lloris' Gloves

He humbly plays it down, but Hugo Lloris was the hero last evening at BayArena during the scoreless Champions League match.

Lloris made a string of excellent stops last evening to deny Javier Hernandez and Bayer Leverkusen any form of victory. The Man of the Match goalie played a pivotal role in making sure that Leverkusen didn’t concede, but his finest moment was when he denied Hernandez from close range. The Frenchman spared no thought as he sprung across goal and with incredible cat reflexes, he managed to grab the ball and cling onto it to ensure that it did not cross the line. 

He was rightfully named Man of the Match, but he refused to take credit for his heroic efforts.

‘That’s a technology decision. Listen, you need a bit of luck in that kind of action. This time I could save this goal. It’s important. It’s a…

Masterclass performance from Spurs as they beat City 2-0

Tottenham just put in a masterclass performance against Manchester City running away with a 2-0 victory at the White Hart Lane. Despite Kolarov scoring an own goal to put Spurs ahead in the 9th minute, it was all Spurs. City did improve in the 2nd half, but Spurs wouldn’t let them pass. Lloris was a tough wall to break while Bravo sometimes fumbled on the other end.

Dele Alli scored the winner in the 37th minute and Erik Lamela had his penalty save by Bravo in the 65th minute. It was a well-deserved performance from the boys in white at the lane and I am delighted for them.

Hugo Lloris suffers hamstring blow

In The Safety Of Hugo Lloris' Gloves

Hugo Lloris was forced off with a hamstring injury earlier today in Tottenham’s 2016/17 season premiere against Everton. Lloris was subbed off late in the first half with Michel Vorm replacing him. The Frenchman had conceded his first goal of the season as Everton went ahead in the 6th minute. The game eventually finished 1-1.

Wishing Lloris a speedy recovery and all the best to Spurs this season.

Newcastle end Spurs unbeaten streak

Tottenham Hotspur v Newcastle United - Premier League

Tottenham Hotspur 14 games unbeaten streak came to an end yesterday at the Lane, thanks to a very determined and hard fought 2-1 victory by Newcastle.

I want to use this space to rant.




I never ask for much, but it’s like EVERY TIME there’s a great opportunity for the team to move closer to the top, they draw or lose. Yesterday, they only had one duty: to win. Winning would’ve moved them to 4th place on the PL table in front of Manchester United with 29 points. But noooo, Spurs just had to lose the game and they think that is going to stand well with fans?

They started off well and frizzled out in the second half. Losing was imminent given their display, but they need to redeem themselves. I won’t stand for losing or drawing constantly.

Here’s a photo of Hugo Lloris out on the town with his team last evening. Still doesn’t look to happy about that lost.
