An eventful week on the social media front, as Spurs supporters, pundits and players alike got busy putting their best 140-character feet forward.
Spurs 2017-18 kit
Ricky Sacks gets this recap started with the unofficial release of Spurs’ purported kits for the 2017/18 campaign. I’m not convinced about the violet third shirt on offer. It’s a bit vibrant, reminding one of a girlfriend’s lavender flower display. But maybe that’s just me. Thanks for the setting the unsavoury scene, @RickSpur.
The home and away shirt look pretty slick, though.
Victor Moses: Chelsea’s cheater of the week
This tweet, in an otherwise disparaging loss at Wembley to Spurs’ second most hated rival, slightly lightened the mood. It depicts what Victor Moses looked like as he “disgracefully” toppled over Son Heung-Min’s phantom challenge.
Moses should be ashamed at himself for cheating and referee Martin Atkinson should be just as repentant for falling for the abhorrent fabrication hook, line and sinker. Diving – or embellishing – must be eradicated from football as it’s a dark, malignant cancer that continually spreads. Bring in video replay for such incidents and suspend the perpetrator. It’s the only way to put an end to such flagrant skulduggery and deceit.
The tweet sums up Moses’ dive pretty well.
Oh, and here’s the proof for any Chelsea supporters who have stumbled upon Tottenham HQ.
Congrats Dele Alli
Congrats go out once more to Dele Alli, who won the PFA Player of the Year for the second year running. He was the frontrunner and is most deserving of the award. The 21-year-old plays the game like a man 10 years his older and will be the best midfielder in the world in the near future. He’s currently not far away from claiming that venerated honour.
Happy birthday Jan and Ben
Two defenders on the same Premier League team sharing a birthday. What are the odds? Happy birthday to Jan Vertonghen and Ben Davies, who turned 30 and 24, respectively, on Monday, April 24. Let’s celebrate by thrashing Palace at Selhurst Park. What do you say, lads?
Remembering Ugo Ehiogu, Spurs fallen hero
The week ended tragically, as former Spurs Under-23 coach passed away after a suspected cardiac arrest at the training facility on Thursday. Ugo was an inspiration to everyone he came in contact with, including the younger Spurs prospects he mentored. You’re dearly missed, Ugo. Rest in peace you legend.
