Tottenham’s Roberto Soldado and the apparent joy over his poor form 3

This is becoming a tedious little ritual: an expensive forward struggles for goals and everyone takes great joy in deriding him and his ability.

Fantasy Picks for this weekend: Roberto Soldado (Tottenham) 1

If you look back at Roberto Soldado’s career at Valencia, it’s noticeable that a his goals have always tended to come in streaks - he fails to register for a couple of games, and then he can’t stop scoring for a month or two. Whether that ratio will hold true in the Premier League is(…)

Player to watch this weekend: Roberto Soldado (Tottenham) 0

That Roberto Soldado is yet to score in open play in the Premier League is a rather misleading statistic, because in the last couple of games at least, he’s done more than enough to warrant a goal. Tomorrow is different though, because in games against the marquee sides in the league, nobody really remembers how(…)

Nevertheless, the Togalese is still at White Hart Lane, and is still potentially of use during the(…)

Roberto Soldado and the obvious new motivation for Tottenham to hold onto Gareth Bale 15

You know what’s got lost amongst all the talk about Gareth Bale leaving White Hart Lane? Tottenham are loaded with quality for the new season. Paulinho was an excellent signing, I believe Nacer Chadli solves a problem which badly needed a solution, and the value of having a forward of Roberto Soldado’s quality speaks for(…)

Why Tottenham and Roberto Soldado are such a good fit

Why Tottenham and Roberto Soldado are such a good fit 0

Tottenham are apparently very close to agreeing a deal to bring Roberto Soldado to England, and beyond him just being the elite European forward that Andre Villas-Boas really needed this Summer, he’s a very good fit for the current team at White Hart Lane.
