Tottenham remained in the hunt for three different trophies this season after they managed a 2-0 win over Aston Villa. Even the manager Mauricio Pochettino opted to rotate in a number of positions, Spurs managed to retain their desire and hunger that led them to a comfortable victory. Ben Davies and Heung-Min Son scored both goals in the second half to give Spurs passage into the fourth round of the competition. They would be up against Wycombe Wanderers from League Two. It is a game which has already raised expectations amongst Wycombe players and fans alike.
Even though a trip to Anfield or Old Trafford would rank as one of the ultimate dreams of a lower-league opposition in the FA Cup, Spurs could join the illustrious list sooner rather than later. After having come close to winning the title last season, the club are once again at it by moving within seven points of the leaders Chelsea following the win against the blues a week ago. A trip to White Hart Lane is one of the cherished moments already, as the iconic ground will be making way for a brand-new 60,000 seater stadium.

Wycombe already have recalled memories of their incredible cup run in the 2000-01 season. They managed to reach the semifinals of the FA Cup back then. It would be extremely difficult to achieve a similar result this time around partly because they are up against Spurs. Mauricio Pochettino’s team have been in superb form over the last few weeks, and it was aptly demonstrated in the 2-0 win over Chelsea. Wycombe will be given little chance of success, but the League Two opposition will be aware that this is the FA Cup and nothing can be taken for granted.
After having seen Spurs struggled to open the scoring against Villa until the 70th minute, Wycombe will be reasonably confident ahead of their match against the Premier league’s title chasers.
In order to receive the game against Spurs, Wycombe also had to go down the tough road. They managed to beat Stourbridge 2-1 with a late goal from Adebayo Akinfenwa helping them seal a place in the fourth round of the competition. Samuel Wood have given Wycombe the lead in the 47th minute before Dan Scarr came back to equalise in stunning fashion in the 70th minute. Undoubtedly, form at home played a major role in ensuring that Wycombe managed to creep as to the finishing line. Without the assistance from the home crowd, Wycombe will have their work cut out against top opposition like Tottenham.
Tottenham interested in £44m January move for Barcelona starlet
Malcom joined Barcelona at the start of the season but has featured just twice for the Catalan giants. He has played 25 minutes for the Blaugrana this season, with the Brazilian being unable to break into a playing XI featuring the likes of Ousmane Dembele, Lionel Messi and Philippe Coutinho.
The winger had a sensational season in the Ligue 1 before moving to the La Liga, scoring 12 goals and providing 7 assists in 35 league appearances. He is surely a quality player whose potential is not being utilized in Spain.
Considering the quality in our squad and also the 21-year-old Barca winger’s talent, it could be a perfect match. Malcom would add some incredible depth to our squad and Pochettino must make a move in January.
Though £44m seems steep, it could be a gamble worth taking as the young star has all the tools required to take the Premier League by storm with more game time.
Whether or not Barcelona would let go of a player they signed just a few months back remains to be seen but this is a move we must make to bolster our attacking reinforcements in January.
After the quiet summer window, a statement signing in January would go a long way in conveying a message to our rivals.
[Video] This latest aerial video of Tottenham’s $1bn new stadium is absolutely wonderful
YouTuber Mr AV (h/t Football.London) has posted a new high-definition video of our club’s stunning new $1bn stadium. The footage provides us with a clear picture of how much work has been done in terms of the construction.
The video also showed the soon-to-be-opened club megastore and the Tottenham Museum. The aerial footage of the new stadium was wonderful as it also showed the overall structure of the stadium and the single-tier 17,500-seater south stand. The video also shows the area where the giant golden cockerel will sit above that stand.
It is not known as to when the stadium would be available for use but it looks like the construction is progressing at a reasonable rate.
It was indeed a disappointment when it was decided by the club hierarchy that we would be playing our home games at Wembley this season but that would all change when the stadium is unveiled officially. The construction has taken quite a bit of time and it will be an exciting phase when the work is completed.
The new stadium would surely serve as a boost to the entire club and it would wipe out any negativity surrounding Tottenham. The club too have been keeping us updated on the progress regarding the stadium and we’ll have to wait to see what the club say next regarding the completion of the stadium work.
“Shushing the racists, hands down”: Some Tottenham fans relive the memories as club shares a video of wonder goals against West Ham
Tottenham are set to face West Ham on Saturday and the club shared a video featuring some of the best goals we have scored against the Hammers in the past.
The video featured some memorable and stunning strikes from the likes of Gareth Bale, Son Heung-min, Jermain Defoe and Dimitar Berbatov.
Tottenham’s past 8 meetings with West Ham has seen 28 goals being scored, at an average of 3.5 per game, hence, it is logical that the club has shared a video of some great goals from the past. The game on Saturday presents us with a chance to keep the pressure on the teams above us and we shouldn’t drop points.
The video was a trip down the memory lane and the fans had a say on it. The Tottenham faithful reacted to the video on Twitter and a lot of them had some nice things to say.
Defoe’s run through their entire team is my fav

The first Bale one I think.
But there’s a message in this video – shots from outside the box (in some cases WAY outside) seem like a good way to beat West Ham.
