Happy Monday to everyone, especially Toby Alderweireld.
Well, it wasn’t pretty, but you can’t deny they’ve give us something to smile about.
It doesn’t get much sweeter than a win over Woolwich to set you up for a new week, now does it?
Right, let’s chat…
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know that Spurs beat Arsenal 2-1 yesterday in the first ever north London derby at the new stadium.
Mourinho, who still has never lost a home game to Arsenal in the Premier League, has had his fair share of criticism this season, but I thought set us up perfectly yesterday to pick up all three points. It has to be said, it’s not the typical ‘Tottenham way’, but it gets results.
Huge credit has to go to Lucas Moura in particular, who I thought had his best game this season for us on Sunday. The ball to Kane, after skipping past Pepé Le Pew no less, was simply delicious, and a part of his game he certainly needs to show more often.
There’s no denying the result papers over the cracks of a torrid season, but it doesn’t get better than beating that lot from down the road.
Another player that I think deserves credit for this season has to be that man Sonny.
His assist on Sunday for Toby was his 10th in the Premier League, meaning only Kevin De Bruyne (18) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (12) are ahead of him in the pecking order.
Despite it being far from his best season for Spurs, to register 10 goals and 10 assists in the league shows just how good he is, even when his form isn’t at the level we know it can be.
Only seven players have scored 10 plus goals and bagged 10 plus assists in Europe’s top five leagues this campaign, and our man is one of them alongside Lionel Messi no less.
SENDING SERGE OUR LOVE
You will have seen the tragic news today that Serge Aurier’s brother, Christopher, lost his life in the early hours of this morning.
It is understood that his brother was shot dead in the French city of Toulouse, reportedly outside a night club at around 5am.
I cannot begin to imagine the pain Serge is going through and wanted to send all of my love to him and his family at this difficult time.
Spurs are with you, Serge.
AMAZON TRAILER ARRIVES
The folks at Amazon Prime finally released a first look at the new Spurs documentary, All Or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur, this week.
The trailer centred around the departure of Mauricio Pochettino back in November, and appeared to show the first moments of Jose Mourinho at the club.
Much to the astonishment of the squad, it seems Christian Eriksen and co. were unaware of the swift arrival of Mourinho, with cameras picking up some hysterical reactions.
I don’t know about you, but I cannot wait to see more.
