#11 — Tactics Tuesday: Anatomy of a Goal and a Season (brett rainbow)
vs.
#3 — Andros Townsend to Newcastle for £15m Purple Monkey Dishwasher (Michael Caley)

#10 — The Evolution of Mauricio Pochettino (Jake Meador)
vs.
#2 — Recapping Tottenham Hotspur’s transfer window (Ben Daniels)

Okay, here’s where it gets interesting. Two very different articles: a long and well-written analysis of Mauricio Pochettino’s tactical evolution, versus... well, I don’t know how you’d classify Ben’s article other than “glorious.” Could be a nail-biter, folks!
