Tottenham HQ’s two Harry’s and Hugo rehash: Week four

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.

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.
