Photo by Tottenham Hotspur FC/Tottenham Hotspur FC via An old football movie Hello, all! At the top today is Shelina Zadorsky. Ramble of the Day For the first time in a little while, I watched a football movie last week, but never got around to rambling about it. I took a look at my notes and realized if I didn’t ramble about it now, I’d forget about this movie, and the jokes I made along the way. Anyway, the movie I watched was Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal, an Indian film that made it to a Cannes Film Festival sidebar in 2007. It’s said to be a remake of DodgeBall: A...

Tottenham sells £300k of grass to Leeds United

Next stop: Leeds | Photo by Justin Setterfield/ Here we grow! Tottenham Hotspur are sending a literal home-grown asset to Leeds United during the January transfer window. According to noted midlands football journalist Phil Hay in The Athletic, Tottenham have reached an agreement to sell an entire pitch’s worth of pristine turf to Leeds this month for £300k, to replace the currently existing grass at Elland Road. Done and dusted, m8. Here we grow! Apparently, because they are smartly run, Tottenham was in the process of growing the turf as an eventual replacement for...

Photo by Alex Davidson/ Spurs have won three games on the trot, but face a sticky challenge against the Toffees. Boy, we haven’t done one of these in a hot minute! It’s a Tottenham Hotspur Women match thread! After a couple of delayed matches and a couple more where they played at the same time as the men, it’s time to finally give Spurs Women their due. Spurs have won three matches on the trot after a pretty abysmal start to the WSL season, but they’ll face a sticky challenge against the Toffees today at The Hive.

Tottenham’s 2020-21 fourth kit apparently isn’t sponsored by AIA

Congratulations, we’re officially a Nike club now. Hey, remember almost a year ago when Tottenham’s 2020-21 kit designs were starting to be leaked like they usually are around this time? Well, back in mid-February you might recall that Footy Headlines leaked information about a FOURTH Tottenham Hotspur kit that was supposed to be released sometime in the middle of the Premier League season. We wrote about it. It was funky. It also, apparently, is real and is coming soon. Footy Headlines is back with more details about this kit, and the weirdest part of all is that AIA,...

American EPL viewers can expect NBCSN to shut down by end of year

Photo by Tim Clayton/Corbis via This doesn’t guarantee a full move to Peacock, though. We all knew this was coming. Coverage for the English Premier League since NBC purchased the rights has been pretty great in the United States, even with the bouncing around between NBC, NBCSN, Gold and Peacock. We will also always get a laugh out of the final day of the season and seeing people complain that an EPL match is on Oxygen. That’s going to change a bit as it appears Comcast, which owns NBC Universal, will be shuttering NBCSN soon. NBC has told distributors and some...

Tottenham Hotspur may not, but Torino apparently does, according to DiMarzio. The Italian club has reportedly inquired about signing the midfielder.

Photo by Tottenham Hotspur FC/Tottenham Hotspur FC via Another young promising Tottenham player is heading out on loan, this time to MLS. There aren’t too many days left in the January transfer window, but while few expect Tottenham Hotspur to make a big splash in the market, we’re already seeing a number of younger players head out on loan for the rest of the season. Now, it looks like we’re about to see another example of that. Sky Sports’ Lyall Thomas is reporting this morning that 22-year old Spurs academy grad and keeper Brandon Austin is heading on loan...

One of the MLS draft-eligible players I deemed interesting enough to mention Wednesday, Joshua Jackson-Ketchup, got drafted by the Columbus Crew. Ramble of the Day There are two pieces of content from this week that I think are worth making out the time for, and they very much hand in hand: the first episode of the Diaspora United podcast, and a piece André Carlisle wrote yesterday for All for XI. The hook of both the episode and the article is the first USWNT game of the year, a 4-0 win over...

Oliver Skipp may only be at Norwich City for a year, but he’s already making a name for himself and earning a ton of praise. The 20-year old Tottenham Hotspur defensive midfielder and youth academy graduate has slotted seamlessly into Norwich’s starting XI this season under Daniel Farke, and he’s endeared himself his manager, his teammates, and to Norwich fans.

Ramble of the Day It’s been a little while since I asked a question, so let’s change that: What’s a sport the powers that be would have to invent to give you a chance at winning an Olympic gold medal?

I’m finding it hard to think of something that I’m definitely one of the...

There’s been a lot of smoke around a possible deal to bring Christian Eriksen back to north London for a couple of months now, and while Inter Milan have been hoping for a few clubs to show interest, it’s clear now that Tottenham Hotspur are the only ones truly interested. According to both Gazzetta dello Sport and Corriere dello Sport (both via Sport Witness), there’s nothing concrete just yet but Spurs have at least been in contact with the Serie A club...

While the news coming out of Spurs suggests that a move to rejoin Mauricio Pochettino in Paris is a non-starter, on loan or otherwise, that’s not going to stop the rumors from flying until the window closes at the end of the month. The French media is predictably speculating endlessly and will for the foreseeable future. Yesterday, Le Parisienne posted a story (£) on their website claiming...

Ramble of the Day José Mourinho’s start to life on Instagram was pretty entertaining, and I once went as far to say that he’s pretty good at using the social media platform. Since then, though, Mourinho’s Instagram game has taken a step back — it’s less centered on his particular quirks and more mainstream. There are a few hits here and there, but it’s gotten pretty boring. I normally wouldn’t care, outside having a tiny bit...
