Arsenal Aiming For Krkic

Bojan Krkic is believed to be number second in the list of the strikers that the Arsenal management has on its radar this summer.

The Gunners’ priority at the moment is Alexis Sanchez of Chile, but, they are not certain to be successful in grabbing that deal. They are in competition with a couple of other big clubs for the player. So, they have kept Krkic as another option.

Brad Friedel signs new Spurs contract

Tottenham Hotspur have retained the services of veteran goalkeeper Brad Friedel by signing him on to a new one year contract extension as well as handing him an ambassadorial role at the club which will see him promote Spurs in his homeland at the United States of America.

The former United States National Men’s Team or USMNT goalkeeper was out of contract in the summer but Spurs have decided to retain his services by a further one year as back up for Frenchman Hugo Lloris.

Friedel Praises Sherwoods Achievements

Tottenham goalkeeper Brad Friedel has stated that outgoing manager Tim Sherwood can be proud of his achievements within the club. Sherwood was sacked from the managerial role after failing to get the club into the top four of the Premier league. However, he leaves the club with the best record ever from Tottenham manager with a win rate of more than 50%. Sherwood did a great job to stabilise the club after they had just parted company with Andre Villas-Boas midway through the season.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.
