A win is a win, no matter how or by how many!
Building on to the superb 3-1 win over Real Madrid, Tottenham managed to outclass a relegation-threatened Crystal Palace unit by the closest of margins, 1-0, at Wembley. The fans might have thought Palace’s visit would be an easy fixture, but they need to thank Paulo Gazzaniga, as it was he who denied the Eagles on many occasions.
“I knew last night that Michel Vorm was not too well so I started preparing then,” Gazzaniga was quoted by BBC. “I was nervous for about three seconds and then the players gave me lots of support.
“I will take it step by step in trying to become number one for Spurs.”
Tottenham were obviously the dominant side, but Palace looked like a completely rejuvenated team. The return of once Tottenham target Wilfried Zaha has been a telling factor for Roy Hodgson and the fact that they managed 11 shots throughout the game is the perfect proof to it. Furthermore, Palace defended really as well, as Tottenham could only manage two shots on target out of an attempted 12.
And to add to it, the fact that Eric Dier made 9 clearances in the game is enough to underline Palace’s credentials. Besides, the man who made the difference, Son Heung-min who scored his 20th Premier League goal, became the highest goalscorer from Asia in the Premier League, as he has surpassed former Manchester United midfielder Park Ji-Sung’s tally of 19.
“I am so happy for the different players who came in, people like Paulo, who played fantastically well,” Pochettino told BBC.
“He is an unbelievable option to have as a keeper and I am really happy for him and his family that he performed like that.
“It was a tough game for us after Wednesday. Palace were compact, narrow and played on the counter-attack. We had possession, but not many chances.”
With the win, Tottenham now sit 3rd on the log with 23 points. And the fans, on their part, had mixed emotions and this is how they reacted:
Son’s goal was the only thing he did good all game, everything else he did was fucking shit

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.
