It’s crazy how fast things can change in the space of a week. A fortnight ago Tottenham steamrolled the Magpies at White Hart Lane scoring four goals before half time and appearing invisible. Fast forward seven days and Harry’s Hotspurs, albeit a little understrength, struggled to break down League One minnows Stevenage in the FA Cup fifth round.
Hardly the ideal preparation for a North London derby that could confirm the transference of the power in North London. Spurs are still in with an outside chance of winning the Premier League title and slaying their fiercest rivals in their own back back garden would keep them within touching distance of the two Manchester clubs.
This week on FFC questions have been asked over Tottenham’s future as title challengers, whether they have what it takes to compete in the Champions League next season and can they afford to let Emmanuel Adebayor slip through their fingers? Theres also news of a potential move for one of Brazil’s hottest striking prospects!

“I would love to stay at Tottenham and help them become champions.
“And I really enjoy working with this manager. Harry Redknapp has done so much to give me my confidence back. He told me, ‘Whether you score or you don’t score, you are a great player. You make goals, you work hard, you run for the team, you defend for the team. Your presence alone gives more space to others like Bale and Van der Vaart’.
“That’s great to hear because when your manager makes those sort of compliments you do your very best for him. That’s why I’m not surprised he is the main man now for the England job.” Emmanuel Adebayor describing the pleasure of working with Harry Redknapp (The Sun).
