Mauricio Pochettino has defended West Ham United’s SlavenBilic

West Ham United’s SlavenBilic is rumored to be in danger of getting sacked at the end of the season depending on the performances that his squad display when their current campaig reaches it’s end.


During the 2015-16 English Premier League season, West Ham United was able to finish at the 7th spot which is very impressive but things have taken a turn for the worst for them as they are positioned at the 15th spot with 39 points collected from their 35 initial league matches.

SlavenBilic is hoping that he can end their current campaign on a high note and that would be by collecting as many points as possible but this might be difficult to accomplish considering just how underwhelming that West Ham United has been performing with successive defeats and draws.

Tottenham Hotspur’s Mauricio Pochettino has voiced his thoughts concerning SlavenBilic’s current situation as the Argentinean manager said:“He is a great guy. A great manager. When you move stadiums it is always completely different. So I think he is doing a great job. He is a great manager’’ Read Full Post…

LIVERPOOL DEFEAT TOTTENHAM 2-0 AT ANFIELD

Sadio Mane was the difference as Liverpool brushed aside an in-form Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.


The victory is a confidence booster for Coach Jurgen Klopp’s men who have not won their last five games.

The Reds’ poor form coincided with the absence of Mane who has to represent his country – Senegal – at the African Cup of Nations in Gabon. Mane missed seven games but came back to provide the brace that threatens Spurs’ title hopes this term. He failed to impress when he played against relegation-threatened side Hull City last week but showed his prowess with two quick goals against Spurs.

“They couldn’t win without him. Mane is the one with that bit of pace to get in behind and I didn’t think they were doing that recently and that’s because he wasn’t there. He is phenomenal. He senses the danger. Spurs couldn’t deal with him,” Arsenal legend Ian Wright said of the match winner. Klopp also joined to heap praises on Mane and the team in general for their efforts.

THBN: SPURS AS GOOD AS LIVERPOOL AND CHELSEA

THBN has hammered on what is required to play amongst teams in the UEFA Champions League and Premier League.


The person behind the blog has said he knows the demands it places on players and the advantages of not having European football affecting the concentration given to the England Premier League challenges.

Recovery time is top priority in the scientific world of football we live in. Players no longer suffer from burn out as their body readings are taken every day and their game time managed accordingly. It takes 48 hours for the body to fully recover from a match of football and that is delayed where travelling is involved.

“Liverpool are the same as Chelsea, they have qualified players who give enough energetic performances. Their recovery between games is vital and that is an advantage for them,” The blogger posted. “I think Tottenham are as good as Liverpool, I think Tottenham are as good as Chelsea, there is no doubt, but because Spurs are in European competition I would put Chelsea and Liverpool ahead of them in the Premier League for that reason only.” Read Full Post…

SPURS TO ACQUIRE MAN CITY REJECT

Tottenham Hotspurs are reported to be considering a move for Manchester City’s defender Eliaquim Mangala, according to ESPN.


The report claims that coach Pep Guardiola is willing to listen to offers for the defender. The France international is deemed excess to requirements at the Etihad, along with other players; Hence, the move to phase him out of the squad.

Mangala has not appareared in any match for Man City since the Spanish tactician took over. Nicolas Otamendi is favoured ahead of him, and the recent signing of John Stones from Everton for a record fee of £50 million further compounded his problems. There’s also skipper Vincent Kompany who is set for a return to the team when he recovers fully from his injury. Spurs are willing to take him, and reported to be keen to push out Kevin Wimmer should they get Mangala before the transfer window closes.

Aleksander Kolarov has gotten one of the spots in the heart of the defence as well; meaning Mangala has very little chance of getting a call-up this term. He has three more years for his current deal to play out, but City cannot bear it anymore after moving to the Etihad from Porto for a whopping £32 million. Mangala joined in the summer of 2014 but hasn’t quite lived up to expectations.

Spurs Got Wanyama For The Next Season

Many players follow their managers and one such instance is being seen in Spurs this season.

Victor Wanyama has signed in for the position of midfielder from Southampton for an amount of 11 million pounds in Tottenham. The deal spans five years. This move will have Wanyama rejoining his former manager, Mauricio Pochettino. The manager had managed Victor when he has been a captain in his stint in Saints at the age of 24. Wanyama definitely has had a colorful career. He arrived at St Mary’s for an amount of 12.5 million pounds in 2013 from the Celtic side. In 85 games in the Premier League he helped to score four goals. Though Spurs showed interest in acquiring him last summer, he stayed back with Southampton and helped them clinch the sixth position. He has definitely been attached to the Southampton club. He even published a letter to his fans on his dedicated website. Here he stated that saying goodbye to the club was emotional for him as he had been the first player from Kenya to have been part of the Premier League. He stated that the club would remain in his heart forever. Read Full Post…

Spurs manager has apologized for the defeat against Newcastle

Tottenham Hotspurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has apologized to the fans after his team was thrashed by Newcastle on the final day of the season.


The result means that they lose second place to their bitter rivals Arsenal.

Given that Tottenham Hotspurs had a much better goal difference than Arsenal, a draw would have been enough to secure the second place, but they ended up being well beaten by a team that was already relegated. And worst of all, Newcastle played some part of the game with only ten men after the sending off of AleksandarMitrovic.

Mauricio Pochettino has conceded that his team was not good on the day and that they did not show any intensity in their game. He said that he will do everything he can so that the same mistake does not happen again next season.

Tottenham Hotspurs were at some point of the campaign genuine title contenders but their season faltered in the 4 last matches of the campaign and they find themselves finishing the season 12 points behind Champions Leicester City. Read Full Post…

TOTTENHAM TO PLAY TITLE-DECIDER

The Lily Whites would face English Premier League giants, Manchester United, in a crucial match for the team. Tottenham has had an impressive campaign this season as they sit in second place with 62 points from 32 games.

The team will trade tackles with The Red Devils this Sunday. After facing lots of injury worries, Tottenham would appreciate a boost as Erik Lamela is likely to be available for the must-win match to keep their EPL title hopes alive. Lamela missed the last match against Liverpool which ended in a draw.

Leicester City leads Tottenham with seven points. With six matches left, the clash with Manchester United is the title decider. With Leicester City playing 18th-placed Sunderland on Sunday, if The Spurs lose and let the points’ difference move up to ten points, if Leicester City defeats Sunderland, then the EPL title is good as won.

Jan Vertonghen is poised to return to the team after missing three months due to a knee injury he picked up. The defender will surely be a big boost to the squad as they host The Red Devils. Read Full Post…

Manchester United are prepared to break the bank and sign Neymar but it might not be enough

Manchester United is believed to have launched an offer of around €190 million for Barcelona’s Neymar as the Premier League club is willing to go deep in their pockets and sign someone who can play alongside Wayne Rooney and start scoring goals for the English outfit which has recently been struggling trying to score goals on a consistent basis.

Louis van Gaal lost his chance to sign Pedro as Chelsea arrived and snatched him up which has already proven to be a transfer which has given Jose Mourinho positive results as Pedro almost single handedly collected all 3 points for Chelsea in his debut match when Chelsea faced off with West Bromwich Albion and claimed a 3-2 triumph.

Gareth Bale’s transfer from Tottenham Hotspur to the Santiago Bernabeu came at a hefty fee for Real Madrid as they had to pay €100 million in order to sign the Welshman but if this transfer does indeed follow through and Manchester United offloads €190 million, it would turn Neymar into the most expensive transfer in the history of football.
