OK. Maybe not the worst. But maybe top three? Maybe?
Anyway, he’s making Spurs fans miss Jermain Defoe already. Defoe, you’ll remember, scored in his last appearance for Tottenham, leaving the north London club with their Spanish striker overlord. He’s… not been doing well.
This is from Thursday’s Europa League game. And it’s bad.
Over here, it’s easy digest TFC’s exuberance over landing former Spurs striker Jermain Defoe. He’s still got plenty of good years left in his legs, and he could have easily extended his stay in the EPL with another team. But Drake and YOLO and whatnot, so MLS it is.
Anyway, Spurs manager Tim Sherwood seems pretty sad about all this. Maybe we should get him something?
You probably know Jason Kidd as a longtime NBA player, a future Hall of Famer who retired today at the age of 40.
What you may not know about Jason is that at heart he’s also a soccer player. Kidd grew up honing his footwork and anticipation on the pitch, not the court, and it wasn’t until high school that he ultimately said goodbye to competitive soccer.
That never stopped him from being an enthusiast of the game, however, as he visited Tottenham this past January in an experience you can see after the jump.
Hi, my name is Mousa Dembele … and I’m just chillin.My team has a match today against Chelsea but I’m not playing in that thing! Tssk. I have a muscle issue, and that’s the official reason I’ll be sidelined today.
The unofficial reason? Check it out after the jump …
The moment; the opponent, the announcer’s call, the snow … this is dramatic stuff.
Clint Dempsey delivered a goal Sunday that may very well be included in his post-career highlight reel for all of the reasons mentioned above. His extra time score gave Tottenham a 1-1 tie with Manchester United, and gave Dempsey a moment to savor. U-S-A! U-S-A!
Upon further review, FIFA may finally be ready to review.
Soccer’s governing body is planning to test new technology that will allow referees to review questionable goals.
Apparently, the breaking point (um, besides thousands of matches that have been irrevocably affected by blown calls – Maradona I’m looking at you, bud) was Chelsea’s 5-1 victory over Tottenham this past weekend.
The match featured the ‘ghost goal’ above by Juan Mata that was so bad Patrick Swayze may have been behind it (or, in front of it. Since he’s a ghost we can’t really know for sure).
Said Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp:
“That (goal) was a disaster. We need goal-line technology, surely.”
Said the 21st Century: Welcome. Thanks for joining us.
The Bolton midfielder suffered a cardiac arrest during a match against Tottenham and remains in intensive care.
Bolton released a joint statement with the hospital, saying:
“He is showing small signs of improvement. His heart is now beating without the help of medication and he is also moving his arms and his legs. However, his long-term prognosis will remain unclear for some time.”
Muamba has received an outpouring of support from teammates and competitors alike.
Bolton’s match against Aston Villa on Tuesday has been postponed as they are slated to continue playing this weekend.
