Alvaro Morata

Alvaro Morata could have joined Tottenham Hotspur about two years back and played alongside Harry Kane! This is according to Sky Sports.

Yes, it does sound like wishful thinking at this point but the report goes on to state that Mauricio Pochettino was interested in signing him about two years ago. Although Morata, who currently earns £155,000-a-week, was a part of Real Madrid for quite some time, the player struggled majorly for game time and had to compete for a spot with Cristiano Ronaldo. That is a daunting task for even the best of the strikers and the Spaniard was understood to be seeking an exit.

However, the move to Tottenham did not work out and the player eventually joined Chelsea in the summer. After an initial few hiccups, Morata has worked his way to becoming a formidable frontman for the Blues and has even forged a strong partnership with Eden Hazard.

The duo has been quite lethal of late and their combined power has helped Chelsea progress higher up the league. Currently sitting at 2nd place, Antonio Conte’s men have been solid enough in terms of the attack.

Much of that has been because of Morata’s arrival and it is interesting to think of how things could have turned out had he joined Tottenham two years back. The biggest argument against the move was that Morata would not be happy about sharing time on the field with a player like Harry Kane – especially after spending so much time under Ronaldo’s shadow.

According to Pochettino, that was the reason behind his decision to not move but Morata has claimed that he wouldn’t have had a problem with that.

Morata was quoted by Sky Sports as saying:

“No it’s not true. I spoke with him and he said he wanted both [of us] to play together, but there was no chance to come to Tottenham.

 “For sure I would like to play with Kane, he’s a big player, one of the best strikers in the world, but in this moment when I spoke with him (Pochettino) there was no chance to leave Real Madrid.”

Regardless, things appear to have worked out for him at Chelsea while Kane continues to break new barriers for us, thus making it a win-win for all parties involved.

Ryan Mason Tottenham

Ryan Mason

Former Tottenham star Ryan Mason’s football career came to a premature end after he picked up a skull fracture while playing for Hull City.

The former Spurs was facing Chelsea and hung his boots in 2018 but is adored by many fans.

Now 27, the midfielder shared a video of him scoring a goal for us four years ago and what a strike it was from the Englishman.

This was Mason’s first goal for Spurs and it came in a League Cup fixture against Nottingham Forest.

The midfielder might not have been the most gifted player ever but he always gave 100% on the pitch and his move to Hull City, unfortunately, did not work out.

Mason played for numerous clubs in the English system, serving stints at Millwall, Yeovil Town and Doncaster Rovers.

The former Spurs star also had one cap for the England national side in 2015 and a number of fans tweeted their love for the player after his post.

“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.
