SOUTHGATE ENDS INTERIM MANAGEMENT POSITION

England interim manager Gareth Southgate has ended his short-term deal with the Football Association after supervising a 2-2 draw with Spain on Tuesday in an international friendly clash.

The former Under-23 manager took over the senior side after the FA ‘mutually agreed’ to end the deal with former manager Sam Allardyce.

England were set to get a win over Spain until a loss of concentration allowed Spain get a draw in the international friendly affair. The final international window in 2016 saw Southgate end his short time in charge on a good note. He recorded decent achievements during his time as the national team boss. England defeated Malta 2-0 and played a goalless draw against Slovenia away last month in a European World Cup qualifying campaign. In addition, the Three Lions comfortably defeated Scotland 3-0 in the same World Cup qualifier before the result against Spain.


Is Gareth Southgate the Man to Lead England to International Glory?

Gareth Southgate has exceeded all expectations since his appointment as the temporary manager of the England national team and he has now been linked with the role on a permanent basis.

Southgate has led the Three Lions to victory in two of their three World Cup qualifying fixtures but England’s collapse in the dying embers of the friendly with Spain could give the FA reason to re-think any potential contract offer.


SPURS AND CITY: NO FINANCIAL COMPARISON

Tottenham Hotspur boss, Mauricio Pochettino is of the belief that his team should not and cannot be compared to Manchester City.

His reason was due to the difference the two clubs had especially in the area of financial powers.

While Spurs spent barely £70m on new players during the transfer window last summer, City used almost £175 million on new players, more than times two of Spurs total spending.

While City’s lineup sports a number of star players, Tottenham on the other hand, has turned their eyes towards their academy. This is particularly as the club’s financial power is limited considering the new Spurs stadium being built.

"It's difficult to compare Spurs and Man City," Pochettino said. "You can see the budget, the salaries they pay and compare with Tottenham and it's very clear. They compare with United, Liverpool. We are in a project here and for that, Spurs is different.


Mauricio Pochettino Brands New Stadium as ‘One of the Best’

Mauricio Pochettino believes that Tottenham Hotspur will have the best stadium in the world when the construction work on their brand-new stadium completes in a couple of years.

Spurs will be moving into a new stadium, with a capacity of 61,000, for the 2018-19 campaign. Constructed at a cost of £750 million, it will be one of the world’s most expensive stadiums. It surpasses the Emirates stadium by several hundred million, while it is also slightly more expensive than the Wembley which can hold 90,000 fans. The stadium will make the club on par with West Ham and Arsenal in terms of stadium capacity.

White Hart Lane is partially decimated as progress is being done

White Hart Lane is undergoing a string of constructions and changes as the home ground of Tottenham Hotspur which currently has a capacity of 36,000 is being expanded to 61,000.


There are some cases where clubs decide to completely move into a new stadium but Tottenham are only temporarily leaving their own turf until these construction stages are finished.

It’s expected that the Premier League club will be able to get back in their own turf and play home matches by the start of the 2018-19 Premier League season.The North East corner of the White Hart Lane has been removed as work is taking place towards the expansion in the home turf of Tottenham Hotspur.

Mauricio Pochettino and his squad will be playing their Champions League home matches at the Wembley Stadium.


LACEY: SPURS PLAY FOR NEW SEASON

Popular Tottenham Hotspurs blogger George Edward Lacey spoke on the play for the club ahead of the new season, being a former professional footballer who played for the club and being a close watcher.

Lacey said he knows the club would retain a similar fate as last season where they made a serious push for the title despite having a young squad. He said the talent and bond in the team was a big plus ahead of the season.


SPURS STADIUM TRESPASSER COULD COST THEM £1 MILLION

Tottenham Hospurs will play their forthcoming Champions League games at the Wembley as it has been approved by the Football Association.

Their former play ground White Hart Lane is undergoing repairs and the club could incur extra £1 million after a man spent 12 hours on top of a crane on the site of the new stadium.

The case was taken to a court where Wali Azagh was said to have climbed a 170 foot crane carrying a noose and threatening to kill himself. The crane is one several club branded cranes at the stadium. The 37-year old had a long standoff with the police who were trying to convince him to abort the act. He eventually climbed down and was taken to Wood Green Police Station and then charged to the court.

The London Evening Standard reports that the Highbury Corner Magistrates court heard that the club could face up to £1 million in charges due to the disruption in the construction work worth £400 million.


Will a new stadium take Spurs to the next level?

With Tottenham Hotspur set to make the biggest move in the club’s history - just down the road - Spurs fans are excited about a potentially bright future. But there will be obstacles along the way.

Tottenham’s new stadium, situated within a stone’s throw of the current ground, will seat 61,000 spectators in what appears to be both a nod to the club’s past and a dig at neighbours Arsenal. Spurs last won the league in 1961, and the number of seats exceeds Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium by 1,000 - a meaningless victory over their local rivals, but a victory nonetheless.

The real issue


NFL chiefs are keeping a close eye on Tottenham’s new stadium

Development for the new stadium of Tottenham Hotspur is ongoing and it has been going on for the past few months.

The new home of the Premier League club will have a cost of around £400 million and this stadium is expected to increase the capacity to 61,000 and it’s also going to be used for games in the spectrum of the NFL.

Tottenham Hotspur agreed a 10 year long deal to host at least 2 NFL games a season and this is why a few head chiefs of the National Football League are making regular visits to the building site of the new stadium as they are checking up on its progress.
