Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino says that the club’s final season at White Hart Lane is proving to be a massive importance to the 2016-17 season for the club.
He says that the prospect of never again stepping onto the pitch at this 118-year-old stadium is going to be a major inspiration for the players, as they strive to maintain the unbeaten home record this season. Tottenham have taken more points at home than any other team. They have been involved only in two draws in the 14 games. During the weekend, the club almost came close to dropping two points in the game against Everton.
However, a thrilling 3-2 victory ensured that the club remained in the heels of Chelsea – albeit at a 10 point deficit. Tottenham are not giving up hope of winning the Premier league this season. The club are hoping to see West Ham take some points of Chelsea in the Monday night game between the two teams at the London stadium. (more…)
Tottenham Hotspur are playing their home games of the Premier League at Wembley as their current stadium is currently undergoing a renovation but this move is only temporarily as their new stadium is expected to be completed and ready to be played in as early as the 2018/19 season.
Ground is being demolished and a number of other things are taking place in the home of Tottenham Hotspur and this is one of the biggest projects that have recently taken place in London.
This new stadium is expected to have a capacity of 61,000 as well as many other new additions which will increase the overall project value to around £750m.
Even though this new home of Tottenham Hotspur will bring forth a lot of benefits for the Premier League in the long term, it certainly is affecting the team right now as they are performing their home matches in a foreign stadium and something even more important is the fact that it’s hampering the squad development of Mauricio Pochettino.

Spurs are building their new football ground, which is set to be ready for the 2018/19 season. The new pitch is on the site of their current home White Hart Lane, meaning next season’s home matches would be played elsewhere – Wembley.
There are reports in England that Chair of the club Daniel Levy is plotting a deal that could see the club change its name from White Hart Lane in moves to get a finance deal for their new home. Rebranding the name of the old Spurs stadium to the sponsor’s would earn the club money that would go into financing it. (more…)

The atmosphere at football games has always been a big part of turning up to matches. Over the years some clubs have earned reputations for having either great or quiet atmospheres but one thing cannot be denied – all clubs have come up with a funny chant or two over the years.
Here’s a list of some classics we’ve heard in the Premier League over the years:
Dele Alli was a superstar for Tottenham Hotspur last season and the Spurs have a chant for the young Englishman, taking a shot at rivals Arsenal for splashing out £42.5 million for Mesut Özil whilst their number 10 cost only £5 million in comparison: (more…)
Sheffield Wednesday are a club with a proud history, having been one of the first clubs accepted into the Football League in the 1890s and were present in the inaugural season of the Premier League. However, since their relegation from the top flight 17 years ago, the Owls have struggled immensely to rejoin England’s elite division.
Since the appointment of Carlos Carvalhal last season the club have taken serious strides to earn promotion to the Premier League. Only a stunning strike from Mohamed Diame thwarted Wednesday in the Championship playoff final, sending Hull back into the top division at the expense of the South Yorkshire outfit. (more…)
Alan Shearer has backed Tottenham striker, Harry Kane to challenge for his Premier League goal record if he can avoid injury during his career.
Kane has rose to prominence at White Hart Lane in recent years, emerging as the focal point of Tottenham’s attack after several loan spells away from his parent club.
The 23-year-old won the Premier League Golden Boot award last term and has also scored seven goals this term to take his overall tally to 56.
Such a figure is still significantly behind Shearer’s record of 260 but time is on Kane’s side as the England international could conceivably play at the top level for another decade. Shearer is adamant his countryman will be in with a chance to reach the milestone as long as he avoids a significant injury lay off.
“I thought Wayne Rooney would manage or would come near to making it,” Shearer is quoted as saying by FourFourTwo Greece.
“But he seems to be moving further away, and now plays a more retracted role at Manchester United.
“Harry Kane has made a stunning start to his career in the Premier League. (more…)
Tottenham Hotspurs manager Mauricio Pochettino believes that his team will suffer financially once they move to their new stadium.
He said that the outflow of money will seriously hinder their power in the transfer market and that they may have trouble in attracting the best players.
Tottenham Hotspurs is expected to make the move to their new stadium at the beginning of the 2018-19 season.

Mauricio Pochettino has stated that the new stadium will definitely impact their cash flow and that they might have problems competing with clubs such as Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal when it comes to the more expensive players.
However, Mauricio Pochettino believes that the club will find a solution in order to remain competitive while they repay their stadium. He said that the club would do anything they can in order to generate money so as to get closer to the big sides in terms of revenue. (more…)
The FA have given Gareth Southgate a huge vote of confidence by appointing the former under-21 coach as the permanent manager on the senior national team on a four-year contract. The 46-year-old picked up two wins and two draws during his interim spell following the sacking of Sam Allardyce earlier this year.
England fans will be hoping Southgate can lead the Three Lions to the World Cup in Russia in 2018, but before then the new manager has some big decisions to make. Let’s look at them in detail.
1. Who will captain the national team?
There have been some rumours that if Southgate was to get the England job on a permanent basis, one of his first tasks will be to strip Wayne Rooney of the captaincy for undermining him recently by drinking into the early hours.
Jordan Henderson has been tipped to be Southgate’s next captain. He has picked up the armband before when Rooney has been absent from the team but it now looks like he will be next permanent leader of the team on the pitch. (more…)
England interim manager Gareth Southgate has ended his short-term deal with the Football Association after supervising a 2-2 draw with Spain on Tuesday in an international friendly clash.
The former Under-23 manager took over the senior side after the FA ‘mutually agreed’ to end the deal with former manager Sam Allardyce.
England were set to get a win over Spain until a loss of concentration allowed Spain get a draw in the international friendly affair. The final international window in 2016 saw Southgate end his short time in charge on a good note. He recorded decent achievements during his time as the national team boss. England defeated Malta 2-0 and played a goalless draw against Slovenia away last month in a European World Cup qualifying campaign. In addition, the Three Lions comfortably defeated Scotland 3-0 in the same World Cup qualifier before the result against Spain. (more…)
