Fernando Llorente Likely to Leave Spurs in the Summer Transfer Window

The undetermined length of Harry Kane’s absence would have surely been a precursor to Fernando Llorente’s transition into the starting XI as the next best striker. Fernando Llorente signed for Tottenham Hotspur back in the summer of 2017 and was contracted with the intention of alleviating some of the pressure on the Spurs frontman.

Spurs 6-1 Rochdale – FA Cup – 12.02.18

Match Report: Spurs vs Rochdale   Tottenham Hotspur lashed Rochdale at Wembley this week, putting six past the League One outfit, to sail into the quarter-finals of the F.A. Cup. The game provided all the bells and whistles so to speak: among the seven goals – three of which came from the surprisingly in-form Fernando Llorente – there were torrential weather conditions and a string of questionable VAR decisions. Spurs had the ball in the back on the next after just five minutes of play. Son had a shot on goal from an unfavourable angle, and after Josh Lillis parried […]

Lucas Moura made his mark for Spurs in the F.A. Cup

Spurs finally take off in the FA Cup Tottenham Hotspur fans have had to wait two weeks to be able to see Lucas Moura start in a Spurs shirt. The F.A. Cup clash with Rochdale rectified that, and many were happy with what they saw. In a frustrating Sunday evening for Spurs, Moura was the shining light in an otherwise dull event. The Spurs debutant clearly wanted to prove his £25m price tag, and he did so in style by scoring a stunning goal that demonstrated the qualities of pace, vision and a coolness in front of goal. His goal […]

Real Madrid 1-1 Spurs – Champions League- 17.10.17

Match Report: Real Madrid vs Spurs Hugo Lloris deservedly wins the man of the match after he safeguarded a point for Spurs at the Bernabeu.

Ronaldo then drew a shot across goal just going inches wide of the post. It was Tottenham’s time to threaten as Kane rose to meet a set-piece, drilling the ball into the ground with his head and demanding a commendable save from Navas. Varane turned the ball into his own net on […]
