Injury Claim Specialists

Good morning my little Devilled Oeufs

It’s not hyperbole to say that we are an injury or two away from being pretty stretchered.

CURRENT INJURY LIST:

Vorm – whatevs, we got Gazza

Lloris – back on the 3rd?

Aurier – quad “not good”

Eriksen – abdominal, back on the 3rd hopefully

Vertonghen – tight hammy, should be ok

Dembélé – ‘knock’, should be ok

Dele – hamstring, no return date

OCTOBER FIXTURE LIST:

3rd October vs Barcelona

6th: October vs Cardiff

12th: Croatia vs England (other internationals are available)

15th: England vs Spain (see above)

20th vs West Ham

24th vs PSV

29th vs Citeh

With Kaneinho, Lamela, Wanyama, Winks all potentially a little fragile (based on only just clambering off the treatment table and/or recent injury records and/or possible fatigue), I have to say I’m beginning to get a little woeurried that we could find ourselves in a bit of hot water…unless you relish the idea of Sissoko becoming a nailed-on starter.

What I see is that this squad definitely still needs upgrading and improving. Why? Because as much as I can get excited about Skippety Skipp and Tori Amos, it is unreasonable to expect them to BE READY NOW if things go a little sideways from here. Poch will *have* to trust them, rather than using them when he actually feels the time is right.

I’m no doom merchant, but it’s not inconceivable that we are heading into the situation where buying nobody in the summer would look to have been a bit foolish.

    A true renaissance piece.

    However, I only see one potentially serious injury there to a player whom many here rate not very highly and is often a bit dangerous to our cause.

    More of a concern for me is our style of play rather than that light injury list.

    Barca will still get some though, innit.

  • SpurAndy 🥧🍒 01/10/2018 at 10:40 am

    Nice on Flatster. I’m in the ‘hindsight is a wonderful ting’ camp. Our recent injury history since Poch arrived isn’t that bad I think (I’m sure someone will correct me). So having this many out wasn’t likely although not impossible I accept. So whilst a couple of newby’s would have been welcome there is the question of who we could have got in that would have improved the squad. Grealish would have but we still do t really know why that didn’t happen as it was apparently very close. Top performers would be expecting plenty of game time and I’d argue our current first eleven with Lammy, Wayama and Winks all raring to go it would be tricky to keep everyone happy. That’s not to say we don’t need a top performer or two, certainly to give Kane a rest but it’s never just a simple thing to get as I’m sure we’re all aware.

    • Flat Oeuf 01/10/2018 at 11:08 am

      I’d expect nothing less from the man who has turned perennial Top 4 hopefuls into genuine Title and Cup challengers. It’s clear that he can improve established players and bring through the youth too. The problem that I was alluding to is that there is some deadwood in the squad that needs shifting and replacing.

      Vincent Janssen finally went for surgery on 21st August to end any hope of a move away. Now maybe that surgery was inevitable and no club would have bought him after a medical, but why didn’t he go under the knife earlier in the summer if that were the case?

      GKN went on loan last season but failed to light up Burnley and is still on our books but unlikely to make even a brief subs appearance.

      Onomah and CCV are loaned out to Sheffield Weds and Swansea respectively, but were not replaced by other loanees for example…was there not a player that could come the other way?

      I Know this is the case with all squads – there are fillers – but we can’t really afford to have too many people putting the cones out. We need to be a bit cleverer, I think.

  • Ronwol1960-61🕎⚽🎷🎥 01/10/2018 at 11:26 am

    I’d be more concerned of getting the ball upfield in a timely manner and hopefully with a bigger success of actually finding one of our forwards. Who plays I dont care as much right now because they have all shown a tendency to get very spursy at times.
    Yes we won and that is great but we need to get back up to speed as we have shown in the past.
    The World Cup excuse can only last so long. Injuries Schminjuries every team has them,fairness with refs..everyone has that….but pulling a few passes together is ennit important.
    One thing about the World Cup They should start showing the kind of fight they did during the summer. So far they have been wishy washy at best.
    I want to see the best of Tottenham footie,not wait for a refs whistle and not wait for their next holiday. The Time is Now.

  • Hartley 01/10/2018 at 11:35 am

    Don’t like international borefests but this one could be beneficial.

  • Hartley 01/10/2018 at 11:36 am

    If we’d bought in the summer your list would’ve been longer.

    Here is Barca’s 20 man squad for Wednesday:

    1 Marc-André ter Stegen, 2. Nélson Semedo, 3. Gerard Piqué, 4. Ivan Rakitic, 5. Sergio Busquets, 6. Denis Suárez, 7. Philippe Coutinho, 8. Arthur Melo, 9. Luis Suárez, 10. Lionel Messi, 11. Ousmane Dembélé, 12. Rafinha, 13. Jasper Cillessen, 15. Clément Lenglet, 18. Jordi Alba, 19. Munir El Haddadi, 22. Arturo Vidal, 24. Thomas Vermaelen, 27. Juan Miranda, 30. Iñaki Peña.

    So Defender Samuel Umtiti misses out through suspension. Right-back Sergi Roberto misses out with a thigh injury, and Malcom have been left out of the travelling squad.

  • McG 02/10/2018 at 11:21 am

    So Moura made 45 challenges (more than any other player) vs Huddersfield. He obviously wants his place in the side, has listened to Poch intently & is applying himself exactly as is being asked of him. Gonna be a Poch & fan favourite for many seasons I reckon. Sanchez made 26 recoveries, only two short of doubling the nearest other Spurs player for the same stat. Can’t see either of these two not starting on Wednesday.

    • Ronwol1960-61🕎⚽🎷🎥 02/10/2018 at 12:18 pm

      I think Moura is fantastic and could be another VDV.
      AS far as Sanchez goes, I think he needs to gain more confidence. Parts of his game worry me. I think he could be a future legend but he will have to take control of the area.His passing out is too hestant and safe. If you look at old clips of him in Holland he can hit the ball long and accurate but he seems to be more careful and hesitant with us that way.
      Also he sometimes does great sliding tackles and other times he will lose his marker.

      • McG 02/10/2018 at 1:33 pm

        Sanchez apparently made 26 ball recoveries Sat, 14 was the closest by any other Spurs player. I really can’t see him not starting vs Barca, defending gonna be key.

      Quick game of guess who, only one rule: you’re not allowed to actually type their name.
      “Well said.
      Many Spurs fans never understood Modric and still think Carrick was overrated.”

      I didnt understand Modric that much with us. He use to be all over the field with short passes and keeping the ball going and working with Bale etc. When he went to Real Madrid,his position was clear and spraying passing out and basically controlling the game but feeding other players into space.
      Thats what I like to see with creative players. Get in control of the ball and create

      • Hartley 02/10/2018 at 12:34 pm

        I could never understand Modric when he spoke in Croatian.

    “Spurs are so depleted that Nkoudou and Foyth are training with the group even though they can’t play tomorrow. Oliver Skipp is also training with the team.”

    What’s Your team vs Barça?

    Mine is:

    Hugo
    Tripps Davinson Toby Davies (as a Flat Back 4)
    Dier and Winks
    Moura Lamela Son
    Kane

    • Hartley 02/10/2018 at 1:36 pm

      Same but swap Lloris for Gazzaniga, Lloris is a liability against decent teams with his distribution.

      • Flat Oeuf 02/10/2018 at 1:41 pm

        I did think that. I suppose I was thinking what Poch would actually do, which is a shame as I think he should have to earn his place back after the drink-drive and Gazza’s great performances.

        • McG 02/10/2018 at 1:45 pm

          I think Verts & Dembele will just make it, and can’t see us not going back 5 vs Barca. As for Winks, I’m hoping he doesn’t make the starting line up!

          • Chauvelin 02/10/2018 at 1:54 pm

            I’m not sure about Dier at DM. Every game so far he’s made at least one risky pass in a dangerous position in the first five minutes. Maybe he can start playing five minutes before the others to get it out of his system.

            • Hartley 02/10/2018 at 2:22 pm

              I think he needs a break but he is still the best option for me.

          • UnkleTaff 02/10/2018 at 2:34 pm

            Dembele managed just 19 passes against Huddersfield.

            Four of which were in a forward direction.

            • stevo1987 02/10/2018 at 2:39 pm

              Nice work if you can get it.

            • Flat Oeuf 02/10/2018 at 2:43 pm

              Why bother passing when you can nutmeg everyone?

            • Hartley 02/10/2018 at 2:46 pm

              If he believed in his own ability he’d be a great player. He frustrates the life out of me and I wouldn’t be disappointed if he never played for us again.

              • Fatty B 02/10/2018 at 2:52 pm

                Outstanding talent but, for me, he is the archetypal nearly man/ under-achiever.

                • UnkleTaff 02/10/2018 at 3:00 pm

                  He’s clearly very talented and has the physique and experience to boss the centre of the park. That he regularly fails to do so is the (primary) source of my frustration with him. Winks may still be a bit wet behind the ears but at least he has a go.

                  • Flat Oeuf 02/10/2018 at 4:46 pm

                    Basically he can’t pass or shoot.

            • McG 02/10/2018 at 3:21 pm

              So he’d have made around 38 passes had he played the second half.

              • Fatty B 02/10/2018 at 4:03 pm

                He’d’a made that many had he played in the first half.

    Basically he can’t pass or shoot.

    This is Dembele ripping it up and scoring great goals before someone at Spurs must have castrated him or something drastic. He carries the attack, weaves past defenders and hammers them into the net.

    • Hartley 02/10/2018 at 5:11 pm

      Thats the point though isn’t it, we all know he can do it, yet he doesn’t do it often enough, can anyone tell me when was his last goal for Spurs?

    • SpurAndy 🥧🍒 02/10/2018 at 5:14 pm

      That’s my one criticism, that he doesn’t score as many as he should and seems reluctant to shoot at times. Mind you if he had that in his locker I suspect he’d be playing for Barca on Wednesday.

    • Superspoz 🏆 02/10/2018 at 5:38 pm

      It was Martin Jol at Fulham who made him a midfielder. We bought him as a midfielder and he scored on his debut too. Unfortunately,for him, he arrived at a time where stability was virtually non existent at the club. He formed an exellent partnership with Sandro for very short period but then injury struck. It’s a shame really.

    • stevo1987 02/10/2018 at 6:59 pm

      He was converted to midfield because he couldn’t cut it as a striker.

  • Hartley 02/10/2018 at 5:17 pm

    Fuck me, it’s worse than I thought!
    7 goals in 180 appearances, 0 goals in 27 appearances last season. Not good enough for someone with his talent.

    • UnkleTaff 02/10/2018 at 6:04 pm

      Serge Aurier scored more goals than Dembele last season.

        …so did Moussa Sissoko.

        • Chauvelin 02/10/2018 at 6:32 pm

          It’s surely up to the manager to use a cattle prod on his backside?
          I have to assume that Pochettino is content with his performances and doesn’t expect him to contribute goals.

  • Chauvelin 02/10/2018 at 6:59 pm

    After reports that Yanited had their worst start since 89-90, just pleasantly recalling that season when we beat them home and away, and stuffed them 3-0 at Old Trafford in the League Cup.
    Fergie was a very lucky man to keep his job that season. From New Year till April United’s highest position was 15th place and they finished 13th, just 5 points clear of the relegation zone. If he hadn’t won the FA Cup he’d have been booted out as a failure after three and a half seasons in charge.

  • Matt 02/10/2018 at 7:02 pm

    I won’t be too upset if Dembele doesn’t make it. He slows us down too much; all those gliding runs; just pass it quickly and forward…

          Would love to see a high pressing game up top, squeeze the defenders with Moura and Son opening up the flanks. Longer and more direct counter attacking. Long balls at times from Trips and Alds bypassing the CM of Barca.

  • AntSpurs 02/10/2018 at 11:24 pm

    We’re fucked 😂

    • Chauvelin 03/10/2018 at 12:24 am

      But it will be a top quality f*cking from an expert. The Honeymoon suite in a 5 star hotel, not a quick knee trembler behind the bike sheds which is what we got from Deeney and Watford in August.

  • Chauvelin 03/10/2018 at 12:20 am

    I fully agree with Poch, this is what it’s all about. Mixing it at the highest level with the top players, Messi and co, this is the reward for all the hard graft. Go out and enjoy the game and cheer on Spurs, give ’em a night to remember.

  • merrance 03/10/2018 at 4:47 am

    we should rest Kane and a couple of others this evening,we have Cardiff on saturday and we need to prioritize for the 3 points

    • Flat Oeuf 03/10/2018 at 6:31 am

      Couldn’t agree more. Throw the youth in. Make Skipp captain.

  • Caspurs 03/10/2018 at 8:03 am

    The big day is upon us, it’s the game we’ve all been waiting for, Cumbernauld Colts v University of Stirling. There’s also a bit of a knockabout going on somewhere in NW London between Spurs and Barca, pub teams, pfft.

  • 89Spurs 👁 03/10/2018 at 8:14 am

    I hope that the news concerning Luke Amos, injury is not as bad as was reported. (Knee ligament damage) will reportedly out for the whole season.
    Wishing him a speedy recovery, and best wishes.
    Fully expect that Oliver Skipp will replace him on the bench.

    • SpurAndy 🥧🍒 03/10/2018 at 8:18 am

      I would like to echo those sentiments, so I will.

      • Caspurs 03/10/2018 at 8:39 am

        That’s no ordinary echo, it won’t bloody stop!

        • 61 Spurs Nut 🌰 03/10/2018 at 8:57 am

          won’t bloody stop!
          bloody stop!
          stop!

          Please STOP!

  • Chauvelin 03/10/2018 at 8:27 am

    At least we’ve got our excuses all ready. Let’s hope no more injuries today please.

  • 61 Spurs Nut 🌰 03/10/2018 at 8:38 am

    It’s alright lads, I’m as fit as a butcher’s cadaver.

    • Caspurs 03/10/2018 at 8:39 am

      But is your fart gun in full working order?

      • 61 Spurs Nut 🌰 03/10/2018 at 8:55 am

        Testing …

        I’ll let you know when I come round.

          💨👻

  • SpurAndy 🥧🍒 03/10/2018 at 8:45 am

    Breaking news, I’ve developed a sore throat and could be doubtful for the match. Poch has been informed and is keeping a stiff upper lip on the matter. Further updates may follow, if I survive.

  • Fatty B 03/10/2018 at 8:50 am

    Which pub in Farringdon are y’all meeting in and at what time?

  • TCY 03/10/2018 at 8:50 am

    Hold that pose!

  • TCY 03/10/2018 at 9:02 am

    Hi me hearties—haven’t been posting much which has been better for my mental health.

    No reason the lads can’t do Barca tonight. Look what we did to their rivals this time last year

    We are finishing up a short tour in the Western Isles and Yorkshire dales. Beautiful country you lads have.

    Tried to explain to our hostess at our current B&B in Yorkshire our prior tiff with H Hatesput as she is a veteran of the London ad game. She laughed hysterically at my unbiased description of T** ***’s discussion skills. No sign of Hatespur in these parts.

    COYFS. Smash Barca.

    • Fatty B 03/10/2018 at 9:27 am

      Wotcha Cinci.

  • SpurAndy 🥧🍒 03/10/2018 at 9:06 am

    Spurs Yutes v Barca Yutes on BT Sport 2 at 3pm.

    • Chauvelin 03/10/2018 at 10:57 am

      It isn’t time lapse. It’s a 5 minute flight around the stadium.

  • McG ⚽⚽ 03/10/2018 at 9:25 am

    So Eriksen didn’t make it, no Alli, no Dembele, no Verts, no Vorm & no Oreo. Scraping the barrel tonight. Maybe Lamela will finally get a start…

    • Chauvelin 03/10/2018 at 9:50 am

      So the subs at Huddersfield weren’t to save their legs after all. Forced on Pochettino. Fookinell, double blow I suppose we did well to come away with a rare clean sheet.

  • Chauvelin 03/10/2018 at 9:53 am

    The international break can’t come soon enough for our walking wounded.

    • SpurAndy 🥧🍒 03/10/2018 at 9:56 am

      Who would have thunk that we’d welcome an interlull.

      • Chauvelin 03/10/2018 at 9:58 am

        Not Hartley, for one.

    • Fatty B 03/10/2018 at 10:07 am

      What break?

      • Chauvelin 03/10/2018 at 10:45 am

        The two week gap after we play Saints on Saturday. MoPo should keep everyone home and sod the international games.

  • McG ⚽⚽ 03/10/2018 at 10:57 am

    I’d pull Kane, Tripps & Dier for a start, fat chance tho.

    • Chauvelin 03/10/2018 at 11:03 am

      I suggest a bad case of ‘food poisoning’ for those three. Or Norovirus.

  • Chauvelin 03/10/2018 at 11:01 am

    Watching a video of how the rolling pitch will operate I am both amazed and worried. So many electrical and mechanical components that can go wrong. Tunnel ramps, touchline actuators, 68 motors per tray, hydraulic rising rails. If any of those failed, well it’s just a treasure trove of potential foul ups.

    • Chauvelin 03/10/2018 at 11:09 am

      “Err, Daniel, this is pitch control centre. We have a problem. The retracting pitch was last seen retracting down Tottenham High Road in the direction of Stoke Newington…”

    • UnkleTaff 03/10/2018 at 11:14 am

      As I understand it, the rolling pitch has been designed and installed by the same people who did the roof at Wimbledon.

      To the best of my knowledge that roof has not failed once since the day it was installed.

      Fears concerning the rolling pitch are therefore unfounded in my view.

      • McG ⚽⚽ 03/10/2018 at 11:45 am

        I’ve been reliably informed the motors are brushless too.

        • GDawg 03/10/2018 at 12:24 pm

          Hopefully the grass grows ok…

          • McG ⚽⚽ 03/10/2018 at 12:44 pm

            I’m also concerned with how the ball will bounce…

          • Chauvelin 03/10/2018 at 1:19 pm

            That isn’t a problem they have hi tech light arrays which glide over the full width of the pitch to ensure optimum grass growth.

      • Chauvelin 03/10/2018 at 12:24 pm

        I just hope it wasn’t installed by any Arsenal/Chelsea/West Ham fans.

  • Sexy Beast 03/10/2018 at 12:16 pm

    Hello gentlemen, for all those who are in attendance tonight the Nutser, Bruxie and Sexy Beast are meeting in the Wetherspoon pub 150yds from Farringdon station.
    I as aiming to be there at 5pm 🍺🍺🍺🍺
    Looking forward to seeing you boys, Fofty I hope to see you to my old mukka 🙂

    • SpurAndy 🥧🍒 03/10/2018 at 1:22 pm

    Where are the Turfies type Smurfies when you need them?
    I think we need to bring them back and inject some reality into our club

    Spurs youngsters playing very well, against Barcel0na.
    12 mins gone.

    • Chauvelin 03/10/2018 at 3:16 pm

      Yep. Couple of efforts so far.

      • Chauvelin 03/10/2018 at 3:17 pm

        Awful free kick from Maghoma.

    • Ronwol196061 03/10/2018 at 3:33 pm

      Thought you said 12 minutes and we are gone

  • 89Spurs 👁 03/10/2018 at 3:18 pm

    What a miss by Richards.

  • Bruxie 03/10/2018 at 3:29 pm

    Well I’m in the pub…
    Far too early, but hey!
    Just inside the door.

    • 89Spurs 👁 03/10/2018 at 3:31 pm

      Have one for me, will start later.

        What a silly person.

  • Chauvelin 03/10/2018 at 3:32 pm

    Spurs have plenty of possession but can’t hit a final shot on target. Another case of being unable to find their arse with both hands.

  • Ronwol196061 03/10/2018 at 3:34 pm

    Can’t believe we put all the kids out to play Barca
    What happened the the steady hand of experience

    • 89Spurs 👁 03/10/2018 at 3:37 pm

      Yes Ron it’s the under 19 v Barcelona under 19.

      • Ronwol196061 03/10/2018 at 3:38 pm

        Yes I know and me and you play for the under 91s

        • 89Spurs 👁 03/10/2018 at 3:40 pm

          You’re dead right there. But don’t know where I left my boots?

          • Ronwol196061 03/10/2018 at 3:41 pm

            1963 Hackney Marshes?

    Where’s that?

      Atlanta Georgia I fink

      • 89Spurs 👁 03/10/2018 at 3:45 pm

        Nah mate, don’t remember going there, to play footy.
        Or anything!

        • Ronwol196061 03/10/2018 at 3:54 pm

          I’m sure it was there but could have been in Southend on Sea.. Not sure

          • 89Spurs 👁 03/10/2018 at 4:05 pm

    Goal!

    • Chauvelin 03/10/2018 at 3:47 pm

      Rodel Richards turns and blasts it in. Great finish.

    All square. Good game.

    • Chauvelin 03/10/2018 at 4:19 pm

      The U19s can’t defend corners well just like the seniors struggle.

  • Chauvelin 03/10/2018 at 4:26 pm

    Ayoma almost scored an own goal, just saved by our goalie’s outstretched arm.

    • SpurAndy 🥧🍒 03/10/2018 at 4:29 pm

      Is it being played at our World class training facility?

      • Chauvelin 03/10/2018 at 4:31 pm

        It is. David Pleat is in attendance in the portable grandstand, although at one point I think he drifted off to sleep.

        • SpurAndy 🥧🍒 03/10/2018 at 4:31 pm

          I’m obliged.

  • Chauvelin 03/10/2018 at 4:32 pm

    It’s all Barca for the last 15 minutes. Ruiz is a promising striker for them, very tricky.

    • SpurAndy 🥧🍒 03/10/2018 at 4:35 pm

      Yes, just tuned in so seemed a bit one way. It’s a pleasant day so why are some of our younglings wearing a long sleeve item under their short sleeved shirt?

  • Chauvelin 03/10/2018 at 4:35 pm

    Dillenberg would be gratified to know Phoenix Patterson is on for the last 15 minutes. Let’s see the wunderkind in action.

  • Chauvelin 03/10/2018 at 4:52 pm

    Not been impressed by much of our final balls in the danger area. Maghoma and Bennett very wasteful.

  • Bruxie 03/10/2018 at 4:53 pm

    I’d forgotten how much of a stress factor that rush hour is.
    The expressions on some faces…smoking furiously and hurrying for a train or tube.
    Jewellers from Hatton Garden scurrying along.
    My pint of Kronenbourg is the antithesis.
    People watching at its best!

    • Chauvelin 03/10/2018 at 4:57 pm

      That’s called voyeurism Bruxie.

      Nice one Bruxie, I will have a couple of 1664, later got a G & T at the moment as it’s a lovely evening down here, in the West Country.
      I hope that all goes well tonight, and lives up too expectations.
      Regards to all.

  • Chauvelin 03/10/2018 at 4:56 pm

    Last action was a Barca corner which flashed just past the far post.

    Barca got stronger and more dominant as we tired. Their better ball skills shone through as our physical power waned. A draw seems fair.

  • Flat Oeuf 03/10/2018 at 5:29 pm

  • Superspoz 🏆 03/10/2018 at 7:31 pm

    Alright peeps, what are we saying. With all the injuries and the weak bench it’s shirley a 2 nil home win right? Of course it is, let’s fakin do this.
    ROARRRRRRR! Up the Spurs.
