Bobby Duncan

A new name is rising up from the ashes and for this youngster too, represents the Sky Blue of Manchester, Manchester City. According to a report in The Times, several Premier League clubs, including Arsenal, Tottenham and Southampton, are vying to acquire the signature of the ‘highly-rated’ Manchester City starlet Bobby Duncan.

Manchester City recently encountered a strange situation where they saw one of their promising youngsters, in Jadon Sancho, leave the club to join German giants Borussia Dortmund for a fee reported to be around £8m. The Citizens, for the second time of asking, are on the verge of confronting a similar situation as the aforementioned source quotes that the 16-year-old Bobby is yet to sign a professional contract with the club.

The Citizens will have to compensate if the striker indeed decides to move away from the Etihad, but the club till date has remained confident enough that Bobby, who turns 17 next summer, will sign a contract with them. Furthermore, as reported by the Sun, Arsenal scouts were present when Bobby scored the winner for England u-17 when they played Portugal on November 8, and it seems like the Gunners were left utterly impressed.

Duncan scored a hat-trick against Brazil in 2016 and with the feat, he became the first Englishman to do so against any Brazilian team in history. Also, in case if you don’t know, Bobby is a cousin of Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard, and was rejected by the Reds when he was younger.

Speaking about his record (the hat-trick against Brazil), the youngster had then said,

“My dad used to give me a DVD to go and watch in the car and it had all of Steven’s goals on it. I used to watch that over and over again thinking ‘one day that could be me’. I’ve always looked up to Steven. I’m related to him and like me, he’s a local kid from Huyton.”

“Steven’s been a big influence. What he achieved in his career inspires me. He always had that hunger and desire to win trophies.

“As well as talent, it was his attitude, character and leadership that made him the player he was.

“I’ve always tried to learn from him and when he messaged me after the hat-trick that meant a lot.”

It is hard to comment on whether Bobby will end up signing a new contract or not, but one thing is certain; his mind might have been affected by seeing Sancho moving to Borussia Dortmund. And with so many clubs already being listed as potential destinations, it will now be interesting to see what lies in store next.

“Most entertaining”, “The ending…” – Some Spurs fans love latest advert featuring accommodation partner

Vorm Eriksen Tottenham

Tottenham posted a video of their tie-up with Hotels.com, our official accommodation partner, and it was an interesting video, to say the least.

Spurs players Christian Eriksen, Michel Vorm, Ben Davies and Juan Foyth participated in some “hotel-related” drills in the two-minute long ad.

It was fun to see Eriksen and co carrying luggage around an obstacle course while the Dane also dropped drinks glasses from his tray.

There were a few laughs too as Vorm wasn’t able to fold the quilt in the right manner and some of the fans saw the funny side of the video.

Tottenham haven’t started the season well and were lucky to get all three points against Brighton in our previous game. However, it was nice to see the players having a great time in the fun advert.

The video certainly was done pretty well and the ending is something to behold too.

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish has signed a new five-year deal with Aston Villa that includes a huge release clause, according to the Sun.

The report adds that Tottenham offered £25million for the midfielder in the summer. But to sign him now, we would have to double the amount.

Grealish was one of the stars for the Villans last season but they missed out on promotion to the Premier League.

Villa aren’t doing well in the Championship as they lie 13th with 13 points from nine games. Grealish is yet to score for his boyhood club in the ongoing term.

With his selling price doubled, as per the report, some Tottenham fans weren’t sure about the club making a move for the player while a few blamed Daniel Levy for botching the transfer.

(Video) Watch Tottenham’s new stadium’s artificial pitch lights functioning as work continues

Tottenham stadium

Tottenham’s new stadium is inching towards completion as another new time-lapse video of our home was put up on YouTube.

The latest video shows a lot of pavement work being done outside. And the most interesting aspect of the clip is of our pitch.

Cranes can be seen operating on the surface inside the stadium. Once the vehicles leave, our artificial lighting can be seen moving about and illuminating the surface.

There is a lot of work still to be done on the exteriors and Tottenham haven’t communicated as to when our new home would be completed.

We had reported that Spurs quashed suggestions that the venue would not be ready before 2019.

Another allegation related to drug and alcohol abuse by the workers in the stadium was also refuted.

Tottenham had earlier claimed that the venue would be complete by 15th September, which was our clash against Liverpool.

Although a lot of effort is being taken to ensure the home is finished as quickly as possible, it is frustrating to see the stadium not looking close to completion as the pitch hasn’t been installed yet.
