Tottenham are going through the phase that teams like Arsenal have experienced only recently.
Tottenham Hotspur sustained a 0-1 defeat in their opening match of the Premier League season as the team of Mauricio Pochettino faced off with Manchester United in Old Trafford and an own goal from the 25 year old defender Kyle Walker allowed the home team on winning the game as Manchester United came out on top with the victory as they snatched all 3 points but this result was a wake-up call for Mauricio Pochettino as the Argentine manager is now interested in signing a few more players before the summer transfer window reaches it’s end in September.
Tottenham striker Harry Kane feels that he should be even better next season in order to match or even better the tally of league goals that he managed in the 2014/15 season.
Kane turned out to be one of the best players during last season. Despite not having been a first-team regular until October, the England international managed to score only a couple of goals less than the Golden Boot winner, Sergio Aguero. Kane could have easily won the PFA Player of the Year award had it not been for the brilliant Eden Hazard of Chelsea, who helped his team win the league title.
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino admits that the Europa League may start to become a mental strain for the players from next campaign.
The club are on course to qualify for this competition for a fifth consecutive season. They had been hoping to reach the Champions League for only the second season in their history, but those hopes have been destroyed after two disappointing results against Burnley and Aston Villa. A goalless draw against Burnley has been followed up with a 1-0 defeat against Villa and it has effectively ended their hopes of a top four finish.
Harry Kane at the age of 21 has begun to take in the majority of the attacking responsibilities of Tottenham Hotspur as the young player has made 22 league appearances and scored 14 goals for his club which is the highest amount of goals scored for any player of Tottenham.
For such a young player this could be just too much of a burden for the English attacker to take in and Mauricio Pochettino believes that his shining star will need help to handle all of this pressure.
Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas has revealed for the first time that he would be open to the possibility of playing for a club in the MLS.
This is the first statement by the Spanish goalkeeper about a move to North America. Past Madrid players who have gone on a similar route includes the iconic David Beckham, who is still looking to start the much awaited franchise in Miami.
The former Manchester United and AC Milan midfielder moved to LA Galaxy and this kicked off the popularity of the league in the last few years.
Tottenham finally managed to break the poor run of form against their London rivals Chelsea after beating Jose Mourinho’s team 5-3 at White Hart Lane on New Year’s Day.
This was a mightily impressive result for Tottenham given that they were not favourites to get anything against the table leaders despite playing at home.
Tottenham Hotspurs has gone from being a club that managed to secure a European spot in the previous edition of the Premier League to a team that struggles just to remain in the middle section of the English League standings.
So far, there have been a total of 11 matches played in the Premier League and these initial stages of the season of Tottenham Hotspurs have been very inconsistent as the team of Mauricio Pochettino in one week manages to defeat Southampton but the next week losses consecutively against Manchester City and Newcastle United.
Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen has praised striker Harry Kane by saying that he is starting to develop an astonishing spirit that could be equal to Cristiano Ronaldo’s mindset. Ronaldo is regarded as one of the fiercest competitor in the game right now. His desire to win and score goals has propelled him to the status as the best footballer in the world right now. Kane is just starting to establish himself in the team, but at 21 years old, he clearly has a lot of time left ahead of him. Vertonghen has seen him from close up to suggest that Kane will be a top class centre forward in the future.
Wales manager Chris Coleman says that he does not want to qualify for the Euro 2016 through the play-offs but through the automatic places. After having not qualified for the major competition for several years, Wales are ranked outsiders to reach the Euro 2016. However, they are only helped by the fact that the tournament has been expanded to include more teams. This has meant that there will be at least three possible teams that reach the final from a single group. The first two places will automatically qualify for the Euro 2016 while the third placed team will have to go through a play-off.
