Well folks, we’ve got a date. Spurs and football return in just over two weeks time and I cannot wait.
Everyone is fit, Jose seems raring to go and it’s so close now I can smell it.
Right, let’s talk…
THE BOYS ARE BACK
Where else to start but the news that the Premier League is coming back?
I’ll be honest, I’ve not exactly been a supporter of ‘project restart’, but now that it’s been decided, I’m planning to embrace everything it brings with it.
The reasoning behind my hesitation is it baffles me that despite hundreds of people still losing their lives daily in this country, the footballing authorities have decided it’s time to return.
We’ve been able to hear a fair amount from the players and Jose during this time, with the general consensus being that they’re all back up to speed. Despite the rollercoaster season we’ve endured, I can’t wait to see them again.
NEW TRAINING GEAR
You might have seen this morning that the club officially unveiled the new 2020/21 training kit.
I’ll be honest, I’m not a big fan of it from the early shots, but I’ve also been one to change my mind once I see it on the players.
Why they’ve decided to release it now when the current season is still active I have no idea, but what’s normal nowadays eh?
You can see it in all it’s…glory, here.
Last Monday marked an incredible 13 years since Gareth Bale joined Spurs, and it’s got me thinking about the good old days.
There was a time where the sight of Gareth in that collar-heavy Under Armour kit and Adidas F10 boots signalled that the game was over before it had even begun.
The official FA Cup account also tweeted a throwback to Bale’s performances in the famous competition and if the nostalgia wasn’t already at a peak, it certainly was after viewing this.
Would you have him back? I’m still undecided. Sometimes the past is best left in the past.
Well it seems that despite the news that Luis Campos could be on his way to Spurs a few weeks ago, the Portuguese won’t be going anywhere anytime soon.
The Lille president confirmed this week that their sporting director won’t be leaving the club this summer, contrary to reports.
He admitted that although there had been offers for Campos’ services, nothing was going to convince him to allow him to follow Joao Sacramento and Nuno Santos to Spurs.
Whilst I don’t think this is the end of that saga, it’s certainly a blow to our summer transfer plans as it stands.
