SPURS START STRONGLY

American goalkeeper Brad Friedel, who has been as one of the best footballers produced by the nation in the last two decades, says that the two managers of Tottenham – Andre Villas-Boas and Tim Sherwood cannot be compared with each other. Andre Villas-Boas was the manager of the club for just over a year before he was ultimately replaced by Sherwood due to a poor run of results. Tottenham started the season strongly with a number of new players.

Friedel Believes That Spurs Would Finish In The Top Four

Brad Friedel the Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper believes that they could make it to the top four by the end of the season. The North London team climbed closer to the fourth place after beating Everton this weekend and with a gap of three points separating them from Liverpool the Londoners would be fighting till the very end to earn a place in the Champions League for the next season.

COACH FRIEDEL

Brad Friedel has said that he would love to become a coach once his playing days are over.

Friedel is one of the oldest players going around in the professional football arena at the moment. He is in his forties and is still quite fit. He is no longer in favour at Tottenham though and he is definitely not too far away from playing his last professional match, but, it seems his love for the game would keep him associated with it even after the retirement.

CLEAN SHEET

Brad Friedel’s latest appearance for Tottenham saw him maintaining a clean sheet throughout the entire match they played against Tromsø in the Europa League as they overcame their opponents with a final score of 2-0.

Hugo Lloris’ most recent performances has not seen him being at his very best and this may be after the demoralizing match against Manchester City some weeks ago as they lost 6-0 against the team of Manuel Pellegrini.

FRIEDEL LEFT OUT

The 42 years old goalkeeper of Tottenham Brad Friedel has been left out of the main squad ever since the club signed Hugo Lloris in a transfer fee of €10 million.

Even though the manager of Tottenham Andre Villas-Boas had already stated that the American goalkeeper would remain as his number one choice, it does not seem as his words were actually valid.

The last encounter that Brad Friedel made a full appearance was in Tottenham’s encounter against Aston Villa during the Capital One Cup but other than that match all the others was Hugo Lloris in the goalkeeper position.

STRONGER

Brad Friedel doesn’t think that Gareth Bale’s exit this summer has weakened Tottenham Hotspur.
Tottenham sold Bale to Real Madrid during the pre-season transfer window at a record transfer fee of 85.3 million Pounds.

This is believed to be a huge blow for the Spurs as Bale had performed brilliantly for them last season. But, Friedel’s opinions are a bit different. According to him, rather than getting weakened, Tottenham has actually been strengthened after Bale’s exit.

Brad Friedel targets silverware with Spurs

Veteran goalkeeper Brad Friedel has stated that Tottenham Hotspur are gunning for a title in the 2013-14 season and the American is not ruling out a challenge for the Premier League as well. The North London club came very close to securing a fourth place in the Premier League and secure European football for next season before missing out on the last day of the season to fierce rivals Arsenal.

Online Casino sponsor a team?

Football and gambling have long been intertwined – occasionally in a not particularly healthy way as in the case of betting scandals involving players, but more often in a way that has been beneficial and healthy for both parties.

Nowadays, both Premier League football and gambling are amongst the most successful entertainment industries in the world making the appeal of joining forces greater than ever; which is why the rumour that one of the top online gambling sites could be about to sign a sponsorship deal with one of the top Premiership clubs is not that much of a shock.

EUROPEAN GOALS

The goalkeeper of Tottenham Hotspur, Brad Friedel, has said that winning the Europa League was one of the goals of his team before the start of this season and he is glad that his team is on the right track to achieve that goal.

The Spurs are on the verge of making their way into the final 8 of the Europa League. They secured a 3-0 win against Internazionale on Thursday. They will face Inter Milan again after a week and if they manage to safeguard their lead in that match, they will be into the quarterfinals.

DERBY DAYS

Tottenham Hotspur will face Arsenal in a Premier League clash at White Hart Lane on Sunday. It will be the 28th match for both the teams in the tournament.

The result of this match can change the position of both the teams in the points table. Currently, the Spurs are at no. 3, Chelsea is at no. 4 and Arsenal is at no. 5. But, there is not much difference between these three teams in terms of points. Chelsea has only two points less than Tottenham, while, Arsenal has only two points less than Chelsea.
