The encouraging start continues

Before today our points tally of 21 was the third best start to a Premier League season we have made. In each of the other two season with a better start we have finished fourth at the end of the season. 

In 2011/12 we had 28 points and in 2009/10 we had 22 points. This is a very encouraging start, yet there are still people who want to put the club down and they call themselves supporters!

Prior to today's thrashing of the West Ham minnows, Dele Alli had won more tackles this season (23) than any other teenager in the Premier League. He put in another competent performace and fell for the oldest trick in the book getting himself booked. West Ham tried to do what we did to Aston Villa last season at their place. They tried to rattle us to get a player sent off. 

Tottenham Hotspur also had the best shooting accuracy of any team in Europe's top five leagues [57%]. We hit the woodword twice and quite frankly should have scored at least six.

A look  at the league table shows that only two teams, surprise packet Leicester City [28] and Manchester City [27] have scored more goals than we have [24]. At the other end of the field, only Manchester United [9] have conceded less goals than us [11].

How do we compare against teams in easier leagues across Europe?

Can you image your child's face when he sees you have kitted his room out with Spurs curtains and a Spurs bed with a Spurs rug or pillow pet. A Spurs poster on the wall, an alarm clock (they might even get up for school on time), an inflatable chair. You know they'll love them all and they won't be a toy they play with for 5 minutes then hardly touch again when that fad has passed. You just can't go wrong with a Tottenham gift. Head across to and grab yours in plenty of time for Christmas. Make every morning a Tottenham morning for them.
