Cartilage Free Captain Sep 29, 2014

Younes Kaboul back to his best, or another William Gallas?

Don't get your hopes up over Younes Kaboul. Younes Kaboul put in a defensive performance of epic proportions against Arsenal on Saturday. Tottenham Hotspur's captain was a monster at the back, throwing his body at every shot, pass, or dribble that came near. A heroic defensive display of that magnitude hasn't been had by anyone in a Spurs shirt since William Gallas led the rearguard in Spurs' 3-2 victory away to Manchester United.Almost exactly two years ago to the day, the French center back captained the side to Spurs' first three points at Old Trafford since 1989. Like Kaboul, he did a...

Younes Kaboul sounds like a captain in slamming Spurs performance

Why did Mauricio Pochettino name Younes Kaboul captain? Well, aside from the fact that he's been at the club for a long time and was the vice-captain last year, it's probably because he sounds like a captain when he speaks and does a good job parroting the manager's views*. * Things like leadership also play a role, but we're not in the dressing room when he's explaining to Andros Townsend what color shirt Spurs are wearing that day so we cannot confirm this. So when Kaboul was tapped to speak to the media about Spurs' loss to West Brom, he went with the manager's comments plus good team...

Captain Kabungled IMHO

what a mistake by the spurs Another sad chapter in the history of the Tottenham Hotspurs was written today when Mauricio Pochettino named Younes Kaboul captiain. Excuse me are is this serious is this a joke? I don't want to be rude bt this is totally ridiculous. Just look at the Tottenham Spurs blogs and you can clearly see the outrage with this choose is nearly universality. Tottenham are a proud team with a long history in ENGLAND. We need a captain who has loved the club since he was a child, like Robbie Keane. Or a proper English Lad like David Ginola. Younes Kaboul isn't even from...

Younes Kaboul is captain; Emmanuel Adebayor a surprise vice-captain

So much for that dramatic announcement, huh? Tottenham Hotspur have announced that their new captain is the man who's been wearing the armband all season, Younes Kaboul. He was the vice-captain under Michael Dawson, so it shouldn't be terribly surprising that he's been given the armband permanently. Via the Twitter machine, Spurs shared some quotes from Mauricio Pochettino and Kaboul about the decision. Mauricio: "@YounsKabs4 has shown me all the values needed to be a captain." — Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) September 15, 2014 "@YounsKabs4: I am delighted to have been given...
