Tottenham complete first signing of the summer!

Tottenham Hotspur have completed their first signing of the summer with Kevin Wimmer joining the club, according to Sky Sources.

The Austrian International will join the club in June on a four-year-deal and will cost the club around £4million. Wimmer claimed after Cologne’s game with Wolfsburg this afternoon that he had completed the deal and was ‘looking forward to playing for Tottenham Hotspur’.

This marks the beginning of Mauricio Pochettino’s transfer plans, with a young and hungry defender being bought, maybe replacing Vlad Chiriches and/or Younes Kaboul, defenders who Pochettino has made perfectly clear that he doesn’t want them at the club.

The 22 year old also said that ‘he doesn’t mind playing Europa League football next season’, which is great considering that Pochettino is looking to win the Europa League next season. This move also shows how Daniel Levy is confident of giving the manager the power to buy his own players, moving that responsibility away from Sporting Director Franco Baldini.

At the end of Cologne’s game today, Wimmer gave his farewells, emotional as they were, and he left the stadium looking to make his way to White Hart Lane to be apart of the new look Pochettino team next season.

‘Leave Please’ Tottenham Fans React To Adebayor Tweet

Last night, Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor stated on Twitter that he will be staying at Spurs a further year, despite reports linking him with a move away from the club.

The striker has decided that he would like to see out the final year of his contract at Spurs, and had decided that he would communicate his intent to stay in North London via Twitter.

This news wasn’t greed very well by Tottenham fans on social media in reply to Adebayor’s tweet, many communicating that they didn’t want Adebayor to see out his contract at the club.

The stiker has caused unrest in the Tottenham camp this season, that combined with family issues has seen the striker sit on the bench for an extended period, sometimes not even being included in the matchday squad on a few occasions.

Here is how the Tottenham fans reacted to the striker’s news regarding his future at Tottenham.

‘HALFWAY THERE!’ – Twitter Reacts to Spurs Semi Win

Spurs have one foot on the coach to Wembley having beaten Sheffield United 1-0 in the first leg of our Capital One Cup semi-final at the Lane. Spurs will now take a lead to Brammel Lane next Wednesday, meaning that Sheffield must score three goals if Spurs score early on in the away leg.

The nervous Spurs support bared witness to a largely dominating display where Pochettino’s men took the vast majority of possession, as the League 1 side sat back and looked for counter attacking opportunities. Many became frustrated as the game went on, but Spurs eventually found the breakthrough, from the penalty spot

Andros Townsend’s second half penalty proved to be the difference to hand the side a 1-0 advantage to take to Brammall Lane for the second leg next week.
As usual, Twitter was a hive for reaction as the cagey home leg took place:

‘Good Win’ Fans Happy With FA Cup Comeback Win Over Burnley

Tottenham ran out 4-2 winners over Burnley in the FA Cup third round replay. As reports suggested just a day before, Harry Kane was left out of the starting line-up and was given a rest. That didn’t stop the goals from flooding in though. We saw four Tottenham goals at White Hart Lane in a match that has action right from the off. Burnley surged into a two-goal lead after just eight minutes, but goals from Paulinho, Etienne Capoue, Vlad Chiriches and Danny Rose helped Spurs to an FA Cup victory, to set up a fourth round tie at White Hart Lane with Leicester a week on Saturday. Twitter were happy with the win, and felt that all of the players on the pitch played very well on the night. Mauricio Pochettino fielded many fringe players in the starting line-up, and it was good to see these perform well. This is how Twitter reacted.

‘Not What We Wanted’ Fans Slightly Angered But Still Positive After Draw With Burnley

Off the back of an impressive 5-3 win at White Hart Lane over Chelsea, Tottenham were full of confidence at the start of the game at Turf Moor, despite Mauricio Pochettino naming a much changed team prior to the kick-off. A very poor first half saw neither side register a single shot on target. The game improved in the second half, mainly due to the introduction of Harry Kane, and it wasn’t long until Nacer Chadli fired Spurs in front, only for the goal later to be cancelled out by Sam Vokes. Spurs fans were left angered as they saw their side let a lead slip, but more so about the fact that Tottenham will have to play yet another game in what is already a very tight schedule for Mauricio Pochettino’s side. Although a date has not been confirmed, it has been said by Burnley that a likely date is 14th January. Here is how Twitter reacted to the draw.

 

‘WHAT. A. WIN’ Fans Over The Moon With Win Over Chelsea

Tottenham got the year off to one of the best possible starts when they beat Chelsea at White Hart Lane to move just two points off of Southampton, who currently occupy fourth spot. The Saints beat Arsenal today. Chelsea took the lead when Diego Costa turned in a shot by Oscar, Harry Kane hit back for Spurs with a great goal from twenty-five yards. That started the turnaround. Danny Rose smashed home a shot from Nacer Chadli that hit the post, Kane then won a penalty that was converted by Andros Townsend. Kane gave Spurs a 4-1 lead before Eden Hazard pulled one back for Jose Mourinho’s side pouncing on a mistake by Federico Fazio. Chadli restored the three-goal lead. John Terry pulled a goal back, but that proved to be nothing more than a consolation goal as Spurs ran out deserved winners. Here is how Twitter reacted to the fantastic win for Tottenham.

‘Great Hard Won Point’ Fans Proud Of Players After Draw With United

Tottenham played out a 0-0 draw with Manchester United at White Hart Lane, in a game that saw Louis van Gaal’s men dominate most of the first period, and potentially could have won the game in that first half alone. The game staying goalless throughout the whole ninety minutes was mostly down to our goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, who passed a late fitness test yesterday to play in this game, and he played a bit part also in getting the three points at the King Power Stadium against Leicester, making a number of key saves. Twitter was full of praise for the Frenchman and some said that he was a mile better than the Manchester United man between the sticks, David De Gea. Here is how Twitter reacted to the draw with United.

‘World Class’ Fans Pleased For Erik Lamela After Goal

Today was a very good day for Argentine Erik Lamela bagged his first Premier League goal for Tottenham, the first of many hopefully! He cut inside and shot from twenty-five yards to win the game for Spurs and although it took him over 1500 minutes, it was just about worth waiting for. Harry Kane also bagged another goal as his continues his excellent form since his introduction to the first team by head coach Maurico Pochettino. This is how Twitter reacted to our Christmas win.

This was our last home game before Christmas Day, and the celebrating will have to be over quick for the players as they face a tough trip to Leicester on Boxing Day (or Football Day if you work for BT), before we are back at the Lane to face Louis Van Gaal’s Manchester United, making that our last game of 2014. New Years Day sees us face Chelsea.

We’re On Our Way To Wembley! Fans Ecstatic With Cup Win

We’re on our waaaay!
Spurs are now one game away from a League Cup final as we turned on the style and eased impressively past Newcastle United at White Hart Lane.
The mood was a buoyant one on Twitter as is slowly hit home that our seat in the last 4 was booked after goals from Nabil Bentaleb, Nacer Chadli, Harry Kane and Roberto Soldado set up our biggest chance for a trophy in years.
Bentaleb was dominating the headlines having run the show and netted his first senior Spurs goal, while Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane were predictably on fire.
After full-tie came the news that we had avoided Premier League big-boys Chelsea and Liverpool in the draw and Championship side Sheffield United were all that stood in the way of our long awaited trip to the home of English football.
One song dominated the terraces and indeed the whole of social media…

‘ERIK-SEN-SEN-SEN’ Fans Delighted With Late Goal From Danish Star

It is really becoming a bit of a pattern now! It took another late show from Tottenham to see of Swansea at the Liberty Stadium. A goal from Harry Kane in the fourth minutes from a corner and a Christian Eriksen goal just one minute from time was enough to claim the three points from a battling Swansea side that got back on level terms just a couple of minutes into the second period through Wilfred Bony. Despite the somewhat poor performance from Spurs, we still managed to grind out the result. Twitter was of course delighted with the late winner fro our Danish star, and this is how they reacted.

Tottenham have a key game next up on Wednesday against Newcastle at White Hart Lane in the Capital One Cup quarter-finals. This could be our best chance of winning a trophy, so I am sure that Mauricio Pochettino will be keen to get all of the players involved motivated for what will be a very tough game
