And his move to Spurs makes lot of sense. Decent team, good city to leave and attracts good Korean viewers from Tv. Sbs sports will benefit from it.

But he has still his military service pending...


Great for Korean fans to see him in the EPL, but I am not convinced about the move.
Spurs number one priority is to sign a striker, not a wide player. Harry Kane is basically on his own with no back-up.
Son will hopefully do better than Lamela who has been awful really, but Spurs have been trying to get Berahino from WBA but have been knocked back more than once. Don't know why they don't go for Charlie Austin at QPR.
I hope he does well, but Spurs really need to spend their precious money on a decent striker.


I am surprised Austin hasnt gone to anyone as well but the rumour is that his knee is already running out of cartilage which is showing up on his medicals.....no team is willing to pay big money for him (like Andy Carroll) if his knee is about to fall apart.

All that money to chuck around signing players but they've got a horrendously cheap looking shirt...

If you are rich, single and can live like footballers then London is the best city to live.

Another goal for Son tonight in the Champions League. That's three he's scored for Spurs this week.

How odd, was just browsing through the forum for the first time in a year (perhaps longer) and came across this.

So fast forward from then to now...Carroll is more injured than Austin these days lol, and the latter at a club performing well this season. West Ham look awful however. I was invited to a West Ham game this season and heard there that Carroll has some off field issues. sniff. And that he is not always as 'injured'.

As for Son, well I am more convinced now! He's having an excellent season. Cracking goal against Swansea. Spurs still heavily reliant on Kane and the forwards they have brought in have not produced or complemented Kane. Son is different enough from Kane to offer a different type of threat. Enjoying watching him and he is a key Spurs player.

Son must be well ahead of Ki in the popularity stakes these days.
Swansea are staring at relegation unless they shake things up in January.

Got a hat-trick as Spurs beat Millwall 6-0 to sail into the FA Cup semi-finals. That's six goals he's scored in this year's cup where he joins Adam Morgan of Curzon Ashton as the tournament top scorer.

Also, you are the ref weighs in about the DVDs:

Breaking records now left, right and centre at Tottenham.

Son Heung-min sets new personal single-season best in goals

SEOUL, April 8 (Yonhap) -- South Korean footballer Son Heung-min set a new personal best for the number of goals in a single season after scoring two goals in Tottenham Hotspur's 4-0 win over Watford on Saturday.

Son grabbed a brace at White Hart Lane in London to make 11 goals in the English Premier League (EPL). Including other competitions, such as the English Football Association Cup and the UEFA Europa League, he now has 18 goals this season, which surpasses his previous career high of 17 goals in the 2014/15 season with Bayer Leverkusen.

Son is now also only one goal shy of Cha Bum-kun's single season scoring record in Europe by a South Korean. Cha, now vice president of the 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup local organizing committee in South Korea, previously netted 19 goals with Leverkusen in all competitions in the 1985/86 season.

Starting as left wing for Tottenham, Son first scored with his left foot outside the box in the 44th minute and gave the home side a 3-0 lead. With this goal, Son became the first Asian player to mark two-digit goals in a single EPL season. He already set a single EPL season scoring record for an Asian player on Wednesday after scoring a goal against Swansea City.

Son's South Korean compatriot Ki Sung-yueng was the previous record holder with eight goals, which he achieved with Swansea in the 2014/15 season.

Son then rounded off the scoring for Tottenham in the 55th when he volleyed home Kieran Trippier's cross to set the highest goal tally of his professional career. The former Hamburg man received a standing ovation from fans in the 88th when he was replaced by Joshua Onomah and left the pitch.

Son, who became the most expensive Asian player when he moved from Leverkusen to Tottenham in 2015, has now scored seven goals in the last five matches for Tottenham.

Got himself a goal as Spurs beat Dortmund 3-1 in the Champions League. He was interviewed in German after the match on German TV. He hasn't forgotten everything, yet....
