This week, without any on-field Tottenham action, has slowed to a crawl, but the off-field news continues to flow, so let’s dive into some of the more intriguing headlines.
Nike promise non-templated shirts
You may have noticed that Tottenham’s shirts are similar to many others made and designed by Nike. That’s because Nike use a template for many of their team shirts, a terribly lazy and boring cop-out, especially for a company with bottomless pockets, resources and ingenuity.
Finally, though, Nike have guaranteed they will be throwing their templated ways, along with the accompanied generic shirts, out the window. Expect innovative, creative and unique designs for Tottenham’s shirts in upcoming seasons. Joyous news indeed!
Five right backs Tottenham should be interested in
Football London inked a story about five right backs Tottenham should be interested during the summer. For me, Max Aarons and Joao Cancelo are the cream of this particular crop, but I’m leaning toward Aarons for reasons of longevity.
However, Cancelo is more seasoned and experienced and would be able to step immediately into first team action, so that might be more of an imperative for a Spurs side looking to compete for the Premier League title now. Looking deep into the archives, Tottenham HQ wrote a piece two years ago about how the north London club should sign Cancelo. Maybe Spurs will finally bring the Portuguese to Hotspur Way as they prepare for the 2020-21 campaign.
Toby Alderweireld has Valentines Day baby
Toby Alderweirled had a baby boy on Valentines Day, nine months after Tottenham’s epic comeback win in Amsterdam against Ajax. Coincidence? I think not.
Jace Alderweireld 💙.
The best Valentine’s Day gift we could ever wish for! Thank you to my beautiful wife Shani for being the strongest and most courageous woman. My heart is so full and I can’t wait for the special memories the four of us will make together. pic.twitter.com/pDYp0byPSV

Congratulations to Toby and his entire family. Football really does breed love.
Man wins appeal, changes name to Tottenham
David Lind, unsurprisingly a Spurs supporter, won a competition last year facilitating an opportunity to change his name. He was originally denied but recently won his appeal. Well done Tottenham.
