Tottenham Women 1-0 Liverpool: Furness penalty the difference as Spurs get first WSL win

Photo by Tottenham Hotspur FC/Tottenham Hotspur FC via Tottenham got a penalty from Rachel Furness against a ten-woman Reds side. Tottenham Hotspur Women made their home debut at The Hive in Barnet against Liverpool Women hoping to not only get their first WSL points of the season, but also their first WSL goal. And they got both! Rachel Furness scored from the spot after being taken out in the box in the first half. Liverpool later had a player sent off for hauling down Rosella Ayane and Spurs earned their first WSL points with a 1-0 home win. Tottenham rotated in a few new players for...

Spurs Women vs. Liverpool: match thread & how to watch

Photo by Tottenham Hotspur FC/Tottenham Hotspur FC via Buoyed by a good performance at Chelsea, Spurs will try to dispatch Liverpool in their home opener. Last week, Tottenham Hotspur surprised many by losing only narrowly to Chelesa in their first ever WSL match at Stamford Bridge, by the score of 1-0. It was a loss, but an encouraging one as Spurs showed that they can hang with even the best teams in the Women’s Super League on their day. Spurs got good performances out of Rachel Furness, Kit Graham, and Gemma Davison in the loss. Today, they play their first league match at their...

David Beckham: “I wish I could play for Tottenham!”

David Beckham: “I wish I could play for Tottenham!”

Photo by Tottenham Hotspur FC via No thanks Becks, you’re old now. If you watched Tottenham Hotspur’s comprehensive 4-0 win over Crystal Palace in north London today, then you probably saw one of several times when the camera lingered over David Beckham. Becks was in attendance at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium, but it wasn’t clear exactly why. Possibly he was scouting one or more players for the inaugural season of Inter Miami in MLS next year. Or, he might have just been there to watch a football match in the best stadium in England. Either way, he apparently came away very...

Tottenham Hotspur 4-0 Crystal Palace: Community Player Ratings

Tottenham Hotspur 4-0 Crystal Palace: Community Player Ratings

Photo by Julian Finney/ Spanked ‘em! Finally, Tottenham Hotspur played an opponent off the park! After four weeks of angst and mediocre performances, Spurs turned on the offense and whipped the s—t out of Crystal Palace, putting four past the Eagles in the first half and going on to win 4-0. Time to rate the players, and rating is always more fun when you win big. The usual rules apply: rate the players (and Mauricio Pochettino) from 1-10, with 1 being the worst and 10 being the best. Remember — use 0 only for players who you think does not deserve a rating because they didn’t...

Tottenham Hotspur 4 - 0 Crystal Palace: Spurs bury Eagles in first half onslaught

Tottenham Hotspur 4 - 0 Crystal Palace: Spurs bury Eagles in first half onslaught

Photo by Julian Finney/ More of this please! Tottenham Hotspur picked up all three points at home with an emphatic 4-0 victory over visiting Crystal Palace Saturday afternoon. Spurs made one change from the Arsenal match, bringing in Serge Aurier to start at right fullback. Dele and Tanguy Ndombele both made the bench as they work towards full fitness. With Champions League starting midweek, it made sense to save them before heading to Greece to take on Olympiacos. Spurs fired out of the gate as if they had a point to prove in this match, getting a shot on target 45 seconds into the...

WATCH: Son Heung-Min opens scoring against Crystal Palace with lovely goal

Photo by Tottenham Hotspur FC/Tottenham Hotspur FC via What a start. Tottenham Hotspur have gotten off to a great start today against Crystal Palace at home. Spurs have taken a 1-0 lead just 10 minutes into the match through the brilliance of Son Heung-Min. The South Korean star notched his first goal of the season in some style, taking a long ball over the top in stride, cutting onto his weaker left foot and slotting home a clever finish.

Spurs Women hope to lay down a marker in WSL home opener vs. Liverpool

Spurs Women hope to lay down a marker in WSL home opener vs. Liverpool

Photo by Action Foto Sport/NurPhoto via After a narrow loss to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, Spurs are buoyed by their performance and are ready for the next challenge. Last Sunday, Tottenham Hotspur Women made history by playing in their first ever match in the top flight of English Women’s Football. While the result was a narrow 1-0 loss to an excellent Chelsea side loaded with internationals in front of 24,000 fans at Stamford Bridge, it was a performance to take many positives from. The game’s only goal was thanks to a gorgeous strike from Chelsea’s Bethany England, and while...

Ryan Sessegnon could make his Tottenham debut vs. Palace

Ryan Sessegnon could make his Tottenham debut vs. Palace

Tottenham Hotspur FC via Getty I Sess is fit and ready to play for the first time this season. Tottenham Hotspur hasn’t seen very much from their new summer signings thus far this season. Tanguy Ndombele played two matches before picking up a thigh injury. Giovani Lo Celso was slowly worked into the side before he got injured last week playing for Argentina. And Ryan Sessegnon actually joined the side nursing an injury of his own. However, that could change, at least for Sessegnon. The highly-rated youngster, signed from Fulham, has been working the past two weeks to regain fitness and...

Poch: Slow your roll on Troy Parrott, everyone

Poch: Slow your roll on Troy Parrott, everyone

Photo By Stephen McCarthy/Sportsfile via Spurs’ manager seems to have learned something from the Marcus Edwards saga. When the international break rolls around, invariably we as football fans get distracted by the next shiny thing that comes across our vision. Based on the number of stories I’ve written the past two weeks about him, that shiny object is currently Troy Parrott. And for good reason! Party Parrott is taking the Ireland U21s by storm, scoring three goals in his last two games and causing Ireland (and Tottenham) fans wondering when he’s going to get called up to the...

How will Tottenham line up against Crystal Palace?

How will Tottenham line up against Crystal Palace?

Photo by Charlotte Wilson/Offside/ The international break is over, and Spurs welcome an overachieving Palace to New White Hart Lane. There’s every reason to believe Crystal Palace will struggle this season. Behind a 12-goal season from Serbian captain and midfielder Luka Milivojevic, Palace finished the 2018-19 season in 12th — solidly mid-table but lower than their fans were hoping for. Heading into this season Roy Hodgson had some work to do to improve the side. But have they? Palace sold arguably their best player, fullback Aaron Wan-Bissaka, to Manchester United for £50m, but...

“He never said he wasn’t happy” — Pochettino implies all is fine with Christian Eriksen

Photo by Visionhaus Premier League football is back, and so are the pre-match press conferences. Mauricio Pochettino met with the media today ahead of Spurs hosting Crystal Palace on Saturday, with the questions ranging from the international break injury to Giovani Lo Celso, to Spurs slowly recovering squad. But by far the most interesting answer Poch gave was about Christian Eriksen. Asked about how the player, who tried to engineer a transfer away from Spurs this summer, is reintegrating into the team, Pochettino said that things were fine, and that Eriksen’s desire to leave for...

Photo by Tottenham Hotspur FC/Tottenham Hotspur FC via Four in, three out for Saturday. Tottenham Hotspur players have returned to the club following the international break as they prepare to host Crystal Palace on Saturday at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. It goes without saying that Spurs could really use all three points against a club that currently sits two points ahead of them on the table, including a win at Old Trafford. The team news has dropped ahead of the match and it’s a mixed bag as four players have returned to full training while three look to be out this weekend: TEAM...
