A blog on the great and glorious history of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.
In the words of the great Bill Nicholson, "It's magnificent to be in Europe, and this club - a club like Tottenham Hotspur - if we're not in Europe.... we're nothing, we're nothing."

Tottenham - Newspaper Rumours
Sunday Express: suggesting that Liverpool will offer £10 million for Jermain Defoe in the summer to ease their goalscoring problems.
Comment: Spurs can not accept such an offer - (i) he is worth a lot more
(ii) they should ensure they employ him in the best possible way at Tottenham (iii) they do not sell a star player to strengthen one of their main rivals for success
News of the World: Wayne Bridge may sign for Spurs in the summer.
Comment: Quite possible as Spurs are still looking to solve their problems on the left and they were very keen to sign him in the previous Transfer window.
News of the World: Birmingham are reported to be interested in signing Stephen Kelly and Anthony Gardner in the summer if they avoid relegation.
Comment: This is quite possible but Birmingham's current position is looking very ominous and they need to show a lot of improvement to move out of those relwegation places. However, Gardner could well be on the move as he has moved down the order where central defenders are concerned at White Hart Lane but with Kelly having just been restored to the team ahead of Stalteri, he has an opportunity to show he deserves to start regularly in the team. The next eight games could determine Kelly's future at Tottenham.
