Fakkydoodledandy Spurs..

 

So here we are again, waiting for our hero’s to zero’s to take to the field again in a bid to turn around a run of eminently avoidable defeats, can we do it?

A day at the seaside normally means a fun day out, being mugged by the arcade slot machines, rotting our teeth with a stick of rock, and braving a not so scenic walk along a pebble strewn beach, marvelling at how brown and dirty the sea looks, but not today.

Today we take on a Brighton team buoyed by a sense of self belief (and some good results) and no end of ‘pride’… To get a result today I feel we will have to match their energy, and passion which we know they have, and show a level of confidence and clarity, if we are to walk away with all three points.

We have all had our say on what we’ve seen in the previous three games, unfamiliar formations, bizarre substitutions and a general lack of concentration, which to be fair is something we haven’t seen to much of in recent years.

Personally I would like to see Kane given a rest, he looks like he’s wading through treacle at the moment (saucy minx), struggling to keep up with play, when he get’s a chance he want’s too much time or an extra touch to make sure, that’s not the Kane we’ve come to know and love. Perhaps it’s time for Poch to give a front three of Son. Lamela and Moura a try, with Eriksen-sen-sen-sen playing just behind? A front three would mean we play a back four, am I bothered? No. To play a back three the wingbacks become integral to the system, and for me neither Trippier nor Davies have the pace to maximise that benefits of that formation. Some bright spark (bloody upstart!) on the ere bloeug suggested Trippier play in the middle, using his passing ability in the centre of the park, not a bad idea, and one I’ve also considered, I’m not sure, mainly because of his lack of height and ability to win arial duels.

This is all conjecture on my part, and whatever team Poch puts out will have my full support, if we approach this game with the right attitude, and look to set the tempo (and not dawdle) I see no reason why the cockerel shouldn’t be crowing LOUDLY this evening!

Come on you Fakkydoodledandy Spurs!!!!!

    That keeps the wolves at bay for another week

  • GDawg 23/09/2018 at 6:41 am

    No wonder BHA couldn’t beat us, they could barely see us in that kit….

  • Flat Oeuf 23/09/2018 at 7:53 am

    Morning Oeufers, well this morning feels a lot better after the 3 points. It’s the kind of result that can have us picking up some form and confidence, if recent past seasons are anything to go by.

    • GDawg 23/09/2018 at 7:57 am

      Nicely taken goal by Coco

      • Flat Oeuf 23/09/2018 at 9:30 am

        Indeed Gus. Problem for him is that he seems to be a better sub than he is a starter.

        • GDawg 23/09/2018 at 9:39 am

          That’s fine, as long as he doesn’t get the hump because he is a bench player. If he comes on and gives 100% he can be of great value for us. He started and finished that goal last night

    • SpurAndy 🍒 🥧 23/09/2018 at 8:16 am

      Yep, almost forgotten what it felt like to wake up after the night before with that lovely warm feeling of a win under the belt.
      Just watching MOTD, the Citeh currently look on a different level. No hangover from their European cock up. Mind you it was Cardiff, who I think will disappear back where they came from in short shrift.

        Chat between God, Schnapps and Hargreaves on what it’ll take Spurs to win the Title:

          Interesting, Hoddle makes sense when he says the way to progress is winning something like the Facup or League Cup. Gives you belief to go for the top prizes. The counter argument is winning the lower level cups gives you nothing in terms of progress, the Arse and Wigan being prime examples.

          • GDawg 23/09/2018 at 9:52 am

            I think a lesser cup win, as long as the attitude from the team is that it is a stepping stone to higher honours, would be good. Good for the team and good for the fans to have a taste of success

            • SpurAndy 🍒 🥧 23/09/2018 at 9:57 am

              I agree, I think it’s fundamental that this team win something. I’d prioritise it above the CL. Realistically we aren’t going to win the CL, it’s not impossible but unlikely. With a bit more emphasis I think we can win the facup or LC. Personally I’d take winning one of them over a top 4 place just for one year.

              • Flat Oeuf 23/09/2018 at 10:16 am

                I get that and agree to a degree but the danger is that without CL football for a year we struggle to attract top targets in the next few windows. I would be more happy to see us drop out of the Group stages and at the first ask of the EL IF it meant us winning a domestic Cup. Sounds crazy when I write it.

                • SpurAndy 🍒 🥧 23/09/2018 at 10:48 am

                  But are we likely to be trying to get top targets at the moment, the £60/£70m players? I don’t think we are for the next few years at least.

  • SpurAndy 🍒 🥧 23/09/2018 at 8:19 am

    Thought Gazzaniga looked capable, not a lot to do but coped with everything that came his way. Don’t think he had any chance with the goal.

    • GDawg 23/09/2018 at 8:45 am

      The Brighton goal was a cracker. Gazza’s defence failed him though

      • Chauvelin 23/09/2018 at 10:37 am

        I think it was Redknapp who said if a defender is too tired to get back from a forward position, then you don’t go forward. Basic duties first.

  • 61 Spurs Nut 🌰 23/09/2018 at 8:55 am

    I quite enjoyed watching after Lamela came on 😀

    • Superspoz 🏆 23/09/2018 at 9:07 am

      His decision making has improved so much,when to shoot,when to pass etc.

  • Superspoz 🏆 23/09/2018 at 9:00 am

    I don’t mind the radioactive 3rd kit.

    • GDawg 23/09/2018 at 9:08 am

      At one stage of watching on the telly all I was seeing was the blue upper body part and their heads. The jade green was blending in with the grass of the pitch

      • Superspoz 🏆 23/09/2018 at 9:26 am

        • GDawg 23/09/2018 at 9:40 am

          Does that explain why we vanished against Liverpool?

  • Sexy Beast 23/09/2018 at 11:12 am

    To all those who’d rather win a League Cup or FA Cup then finish top four i hear you, sadly imo the domestic cups are not even close to a top four finish, (ask Willian) the best players want to play in the Champions League, thursday nights just don’t cut it, who watched the Arsenal or the Chelsea game this week? No one i’d guess, certainly not me!
    If someone did a financial comparison of Spurs anual income compared to the others in the top six since the start of the Champions league era we would likely be hundreds and hundreds of millions behind Manure, Arse and Chelski, this inequality will take one hell of a long time to balance itself out and then you throw in the new Mothership and how much that will set us back financially this all points to a struggle for us to win something. However Pooch has demonstrated with a net spend of £15 million (this is truely remarkable) in his time at the helm that it is still possible to build a competitive side. Hoddle and Hargreaves are spot on, we are two top players away from being true challengers, Zaha this last window and a top Midfielder could have been the difference, fact is we just don’t know what went on in the transfer window, maybe Pooch has a very small pool of players that he targets and we just couldn’t get the clubs to part with them?
    Who knows? I personally would rather finish 4th then win the League Cup if given a choice between the two, however i’d love to see us win a Cup and secure a top 4 place of course. Champions League is a legitimate target, we dominated both finalists last season don’t forget. We just need that bit of luck draw wise and the odd tight referee decision to go our way just like Liverpool had v City twice over two legs.
    Last but not least we need to get into our new home, get our feet under the table and make it a fortress, this will be a game changer in the long run in so many ways.

      Could’ve kicked off the new blog, Beasty.

      • Sexy Beast 23/09/2018 at 11:31 am

        Copy paste lol

  • Sexy Beast 23/09/2018 at 11:33 am

    Anyone noticed that the pitch area is totally clear, just needs turf laying………..

  • UnkleTaff 23/09/2018 at 11:38 am

    I dunno. I’m not convinced this was deliberate…

    • elyid 23/09/2018 at 11:47 am

      Those are moments in football that could be debated foe ever, there will always be as large a number that say it was as there will that have doubts

  • Chauvelin 23/09/2018 at 3:42 pm

    Wos happenin’ dudes?
