    Trippier has raised the level of status Levy can mark up his asset big raise

  • Sexy Beast 07/07/2018 at 4:44 pm

    Sterling and Delph. The Laurel and Hardy of English football.

    Sterling ran his arse off,Integral part of the attack and Southgate knows more than you lot

    • SpurAndy πŸ’ πŸ₯§ 07/07/2018 at 4:48 pm

      Rashford could have run his arse off and scored.

      • Ronwol1960-61πŸ•Žβš½πŸŽ·πŸŽ₯ 07/07/2018 at 4:49 pm

    • cavey 07/07/2018 at 5:30 pm

      I hope it’s Russia. They will be easier meat than Croatia !!!

      • Caspurs 07/07/2018 at 5:31 pm

        That’s what Spain thought..

  • Fatty B 07/07/2018 at 4:57 pm

    Trippier could well be man of the tourney. Sue Perb.

    • Ronwol1960-61πŸ•Žβš½πŸŽ·πŸŽ₯ 07/07/2018 at 4:57 pm

      He has been great every game hope he isnt injured

  • Ronwol1960-61πŸ•Žβš½πŸŽ·πŸŽ₯ 07/07/2018 at 4:57 pm

    Good game mostly Southgate. System was very effective and good to play Sweden conservative.

  • Freund or Foe 07/07/2018 at 5:01 pm

    Easy.

  • Ronwol1960-61πŸ•Žβš½πŸŽ·πŸŽ₯ 07/07/2018 at 5:02 pm

        Most of my friends are bankers

      • cavey 07/07/2018 at 5:32 pm

        Ronnie he was woeful and very very blind and selfish.

      • Flat Oeuf 07/07/2018 at 5:33 pm

        I think Sterling is still a starter for me. I understand what he gives us…opportunities mostly. But it’s only because the alternatives are Rashford (who has suddenly looked a little young) and Welbeck (nuff said).

        • Caspurs 07/07/2018 at 5:36 pm

          Runs/pace good.
          Everything else, not so good..

          • Flat Oeuf 07/07/2018 at 5:37 pm

            Question is whether he can improve next game.

            • Caspurs 07/07/2018 at 5:40 pm

              On previous evidence of, er, his entire career to date, I’m not so sure. We can but hope…

            • SpurAndy πŸ’ πŸ₯§ 07/07/2018 at 5:45 pm

              WYSIWYG

            • Ronwol1960-61πŸ•Žβš½πŸŽ·πŸŽ₯ 07/07/2018 at 6:57 pm

              He doesnt have to…..he buys space and may yet cop a couple if they take him lightly
              Rashford is better but Sterling splits the defence and could earn a penalty too

        • UnkleTaff 07/07/2018 at 5:39 pm

          I’d rather play Dier alongside Henderson and move Alli into a more advanced position than play Sterling.

          • Caspurs 07/07/2018 at 5:41 pm

            I wouldn’t.

          • Ronwol1960-61πŸ•Žβš½πŸŽ·πŸŽ₯ 07/07/2018 at 6:48 pm

            i think although Sterling was weaker with the balls his runs stretched out the defence. He was THE danger

            • Ronwol1960-61πŸ•Žβš½πŸŽ·πŸŽ₯ 07/07/2018 at 6:50 pm

              if Southgate didnt think that he would have taken him off

          • Fatty B 07/07/2018 at 10:40 pm

            Avec

  • Caspurs 07/07/2018 at 5:30 pm

    Just taking a breather…

  • UnkleTaff 07/07/2018 at 5:33 pm

    I think we can all agree that was a far more convincing quarter final performance than the one we gave against Cameroon 28 years ago.

  • Freund or Foe 07/07/2018 at 5:40 pm

    I’ll be leaving the decisions to Southgate now. He’s earned it.

    • Freund or Foe 07/07/2018 at 5:40 pm

      If he needs my advice, he’s got my number.

  • Freund or Foe 07/07/2018 at 5:44 pm

    Semi bloody final.

    • SpurAndy πŸ’ πŸ₯§ 07/07/2018 at 5:47 pm

      Last one, my son was 3 months old. He doesn’t remember much about it.

      • Caspurs 07/07/2018 at 5:53 pm

        He seems a tad young to be losing his memory..

        • SpurAndy πŸ’ πŸ₯§ 07/07/2018 at 5:55 pm

          Runs in the family, except the wife. She never forgets anything.

          • Ronwol1960-61πŸ•Žβš½πŸŽ·πŸŽ₯ 07/07/2018 at 6:53 pm

            Southgate has the right mind to make it happen. The players have trust. He looks right for the job. Steady hand.Committed. Hugs every player. gets the tactics right. Because of Southgate England look powerful. Poch take a bow too.

          • Fatty B 07/07/2018 at 11:06 pm

            Runs in the family? I recommend Peptobismal.

      • Fatty B 07/07/2018 at 10:42 pm

        About being your son? That’s a shame.

  • Ronwol1960-61πŸ•Žβš½πŸŽ·πŸŽ₯ 07/07/2018 at 6:55 pm

    About Croatia,I think stop Modric and you will stop Croatia.Not that they are a one man team but he is a super force and a focal point

  • cavey 07/07/2018 at 7:00 pm

    I don’t think England are playing very well. They may well win the thing but they are nothing special. Today’s game reminded me of low grade Premiership game.

    • Ronwol1960-61πŸ•Žβš½πŸŽ·πŸŽ₯ 07/07/2018 at 7:01 pm

      It was very Tottenham. Containment first and then expanding

    • Caspurs 07/07/2018 at 7:31 pm

    Was it southgate that missed the penalty in 1990?

    • UnkleTaff 07/07/2018 at 8:00 pm

      Southgate was ’96.

      Pearce and Waddle were ’90.

  • Freund or Foe 07/07/2018 at 8:13 pm

        No Im not expecting him to come but its good just to find players that would fit. We are the 14th richest club in the world.That contrasts with the conservatism in their buying. So they are capable of buying anyone. Its a question also of timing.One day Im sure they will be ready.

  • UnkleTaff 08/07/2018 at 9:15 am

    Can I just remind everyone that, as of now, we’ve not actually won anything yet. So all that excitement you’re currently feeling, all the pleasure this World Cup run has given you will ultimately count for nothing should we fail to win our next two games. Your time would be much better spent ditching the whole thing now and just picking up a newspaper on Monday morning.

    • Caspurs 08/07/2018 at 9:30 am

      You are right it a way of thinking. The thing is Taff that winning is like a drug. You need more of it.It doesnt make you happy,its the fight that makes you happy,the challenge of getting there,the pain of earning it.Not the silver platter. Its a struggle the management has,the challenge Poch has and each player and the challenge of every fan who needs to see hope in what they are committing too. The prize is just an acknowledgment thats all. Once you get one its still not good enough you need to do it over and over again and expectations become higher. If you cant enjoy the ride/fight then its just a drug

      • Ronwol1960-61πŸ•Žβš½πŸŽ·πŸŽ₯ 08/07/2018 at 12:03 pm

      Glos was surprised because as intellectually clever as he is he cant see everything and he must of missed a couple of big ones along the way. I think everyone can learn if they open their eyes even Harry

      • Ronwol1960-61πŸ•Žβš½πŸŽ·πŸŽ₯ 08/07/2018 at 12:01 pm

      • 61SpursNut 08/07/2018 at 12:11 pm

        That’s bollocks, Ron. Glos know’s exactly what went on and he’s in the right place for him. He suits Harry. He’s welcome to Harry. What you’re saying is comimg over as exceedingly patronising… old chum.

        • Ronwol1960-61πŸ•Žβš½πŸŽ·πŸŽ₯ 08/07/2018 at 12:31 pm

          What do you mean?
          Im giving my perspective of Glos thats all.Its possible you know him better than I do.
          And Im not talking about what he has written since we have left but what I knew of him when we were on there.
          I never saw Glos of being that involved. He would occasionally show up with some iffy remarks but to me it all seemed a lot of hot air and just writing whatever as he had nothing else to do. What are you on about?

          • Ronwol1960-61πŸ•Žβš½πŸŽ·πŸŽ₯ 08/07/2018 at 12:35 pm

            I think now he has license to write anything he wants just like Dilly does.They dont have to deal with anybody really looking into what they are saying. If it works for Harry it works for them.

          • 61SpursNut 08/07/2018 at 1:36 pm

          He never joined us in London. He never joined our games or our e mails. Whats the big deal? Why would he care?

          • MysteriousStranger 08/07/2018 at 3:25 pm

            Mate I find this whole them and us/banning thing pretty petty. We haven’t just started frequenting a different pub, it appears we’re now all banned from even going to the other one. Whatever has occurred clearly is enough for Nilly to stay and post under a new nom de plume over there, to get indignant at Dilly for mistakenly accusing him of posting on both sites. Like it should matter…

            And fuck knows what Glos is on about, β€œThis is how religious wars begin”? Wind it in Glos. It’s pretty obvious to me at least that any number of folk had grown bored of the aggressive, marginalising of groups and individuals over there, whether from the host or posters, so if people are comfortable with that, and wish to stay there, then so be it.

I watched 4 great games in their own right, Such quality and excitement and 8 great challengers. That last game with Russia and Croatia reminded me of one of the Muhhamas Ali Joe Frazier fights where they just kept going and going and going and used all they had in the tank right to the very last kick. Powerful.

      Arggh Taff I feel really sad when I read this. Gilly was a player who came to us after the double and endeared himself to the Tottenham crowd by his great glancing headers and his clever footwork and developing a wonderful partnership with Greaves. He fed Greaves with these deft glancing headers and scored some nice goals himself . They would both play off of each other. He was a nice guy and a good guy too.They called them the G Men in the newspapers. Its very sad. RIP Gilly.

            I wouldn’t describe Stirling as a narcissist, lacking the mental fortitude to cope with making the right decisions at critical moments yes. Ronaldo on the other hand is by far the most narcissistic person I think I’ve ever witnessed.

    Might as well chuck this one in, Stirling ain’t getting dropped anytime soon. He’s created more chances than any other player in the England side according to SSN.

    Also, if spammers get Yarmolenko for 17.5 mil, can’t say I’d be too happy about that!!

    • SpurAndy πŸ’ πŸ₯§ 08/07/2018 at 6:38 pm

    • Caspurs 08/07/2018 at 6:43 pm

      You need to ask yourself why Yarmolenko’s club are willing to sell him, and for only Β£17.5m.

          Yarmy or Shaqueerie, I know who I prefer, 17.5 is bargain money, bet he does a Payet if spammers get him.

          • UnkleTaff 08/07/2018 at 7:06 pm

            I’ve not seen a great deal of Yarmolenko, but what I have seen is a player who doesn’t seem to have bought into the idea of the press, which is a basic requirement of any Tottenham forward player.

    Paulinho back to Evergrande after one season & 9 goals in 44 matches?? Almost as bizarre as him joining Barca in the first place!

      Frees up a non-EU spot for a better or perhaps just more of a flair player, who will sell more shirts for them, I expect.

        Makes sense I guess, Evergrande offered silly money apparently.. I quite liked Paulinho as it goes!
