Arsenal vs Tottenham Hotspur, Saturday 17th November 2012, Emirates Stadium, 12.45pm kick off SS2, HD & Sky3D
So here we are, our first game of the season against our North London foes in Red and who knows what to expect anymore. After the last few games and with a quarter of the season gone we are still largely inconsistent and unpredictable.
Manchester City vs Tottenham Hotspur, Sunday 11th November, Eithad Stadium, 1.30pm kick off SS1, HD & Sky 3D
So after a moral boasting and much needed victory Thursday night against Slovenian champions Maribor in the Europa League, we turn our attention back to the domestic league with a hard trip to current Barclays Premier League champions Manchester City.
A bad week got a lot worse as Spurs put in an awful team display to lose at home to Wigan after they were knocked out of the Capital Cup by Norwich earlier in the week.Kenny Palmerlooks at where we went wrong and how external factors aren't helping the club at present.
Tottenham deservedly slumped to their second home defeat in the league, in the process suffering back to back home defeats in the league for the first time since 2008, while also failing to score for the first time in thirty home league games in by far our worst performance of the season to a Wigan side that were superior in every department.
Southampton vs Tottenham Hotspur, Sunday 28th October, St Mary's Stadium, 3pm kick off
So as we approach our game with Southampton on Sunday it has been a bit of a mixed week for us. The loss against Chelsea was deserved but there were still some positives that came out of it, namely spirit and unity but the draw against Maribor was a tad disappointing.
After a spirited but rightful unrewarding performance against the European ChampionsKenny Palmerreviews the game and other issues that came out of it regarding Kyle Walker.
Andre Villas-Boas was denied his redemption and revenge as Roberto Di Matteo's Chelsea confirmed their status as the Barclays Premier leagues pace setters with a deserved win over Tottenham, although a 4-2 score line was flattering for the visitors.
After our 4th consecutive victoryAdam Nathanreflects on the match and the key points that came out of it.
Andre Villas-Boas' men continued their excellent run of form with a fourth consecutive victory on Sunday, this time beating Paul Lambert's well drilled Aston Villa side 2-0, with both goals coming midway through the second half.
Tottenham Hotspur vs Aston Villa, Sunday 7th October 2012, White Hart Lane, 3pm kick off
So after the massive high of Old Trafford last Saturday, we had an indifferent performance last night in the Europa League against Panathinaikos. Andre Villas-Boas made his intentions very clear by selecting the team that he did but unfortunately it seemed the players weren't on the same page for this match.
If you are in any doubt and still can't quite believe it the scoreline is correct. Andre Villas-Boas and the boys went to Old Trafford and had no fear, as after all long standing records are meant to be broken right?
Here'sKenny Palmerwith the review of the thrilling game on Saturday:
Andre Villas-Boas's Tottenham put an end to the 23 year Old Trafford hoodoo and also sent out a statement of intent with an impressive away win against last season's Premiership runners-up Manchester United.
So I believe the term that sums it up best after the game on Sunday is that we got away with one.
After a dreadful first half display in which we were rightly trailing at the break, we have to give Andre Villa-Boas and the players due credit for turning it around in the second half and getting our first home win of the campaign.
Tottenham Hotspur vs QPR, Sunday 23rd September 2012, White Hart Lane, 4pm kick off
After another impressive display against Lazio in the Europa League on Thursday night, one which should have got us 3 points if it wasn't for some indifferent and questionable refereeing, we get back to league action as we welcome QPR to the Lane on Sunday.
