Luck of the draw.

What do Tottenham Hotspur and Star Wars antagonists the Sith have in common?

They only deal in absolutes.

And while it didn’t do Anakin Skywalker any good as he still allowed Obi-Wan Kenobi to chop his legs off, in Tottenham’s case it just means they don’t like drawing games of football.

Tottenham’s last Premier League draw came a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away… (at Brighton’s Amex Stadium in April 2018).

And while their 1-0 win over Newcastle may not have been the best advert for football when it comes to selling the sport to aliens from another planet, it did set a new Premier League record.

Not only did Son Heung-min’s 83rd-minute strike earn Spurs a hard-fought victory, it also extended their run of league games without a draw to 29.

That eclipses Bolton’s 28-game streak between 2010-11 and 2011-12, during which they lost 21 and eventually succumbed to relegation.

In contrast, Tottenham’s run features an impressive 22 victories – though they have thrice gone close to the dreaded draw.

They needed injury-time winners to beat Burnley in December 2018 and Fulham in January 2019, while their former midfielder Jake Livermore came back to haunt them in May 2018 when he netted a 92nd-minute winner for West Brom.

            I’d love to understand the business model. HH always made a big deal out of earning money out of the blog (‘the only paid Spurs blogger’). You’d think he’d want more patrons. not fewer.

            • foeorfreund 09/02/2019 at 5:04 pm

              It’s about the clicks, not the patrons. Bait headlines, bait articles.

              • SpurAndy 🥧🍒 09/02/2019 at 5:07 pm

                Yep you can tell by the plethora of blogs that he churns out. He’s not bothered by comments he just wants clicks. He’s the equivalent of Arse TV where the majority of viewers arent gooners.

            • Bruxie 09/02/2019 at 5:06 pm

              I think it has gone beyond the original business case.
              It’s now a tabloid version of what was a broadsheet.

              Plenty of reader’s but only a few posters.
              Spurs fans won’t admit to reading it – but are drawn to the controversy. It’s clicks that count, not posts.

              • Bruxie 09/02/2019 at 5:08 pm

                That’s an apostrophe too far!

                • SeattleSpursGuy 09/02/2019 at 5:25 pm

                  Yeah, but most ads are paying per 1000 clicks. Doesn’t seem like a major earner.

      Start with Llorente and Son backed up by Eriksen.

      A suspect we can win this with Sissoko and Winks bossing midfield. Winks versus Maddison.

      Chilwell and Gray might make it hard to contain their left. Three at the back, Rose and KWP, allowing Toby or maybe Foyth to cover KWP and Davinson to battle with Vardy. Rose and Jan of course.

      You know the score. If Spurs won the title, it would just be an ENIC ploy to increase the value of our players.

      Levy out!

        • Caspurs 09/02/2019 at 10:56 pm

          The beginning’s good, but after that it’s just sweaty swamp thing, and Lando ‘Cunilingus’ Calrissian. Where are the space battles? The death star? Exploding planets?

          • Freund or Foe 09/02/2019 at 11:05 pm

              • Freund or Foe 09/02/2019 at 11:20 pm

                Really, the emotion of Han’s carbon freezing? Darth’s paternal revelation, followed by Luke’s fall to certain death, only for Sis to come to his aid? The despair in his face as he clung to that handy clingy metal pole thingy, one handed?

                  Did you see the first film (IV) at the cinema? Or was your first Star Wars cinema experience ESB?

                  • Freund or Foe 09/02/2019 at 11:30 pm

                    It’s a well though out point, completely correct.

                    • Caspurs 09/02/2019 at 11:37 pm

                      I knew there’d be a sensible reason..

                  • Fatty B 09/02/2019 at 11:30 pm

                    Not that it’s any of your business, but I saw IV at the ‘pictures’ – we weren’t posh enough to go to the cinema.

                    • Caspurs 09/02/2019 at 11:32 pm

                      So you read the comic book version. Groovy!

                    • Fatty B 09/02/2019 at 11:34 pm

                      We couldn’t afford to read.

                    • Caspurs 09/02/2019 at 11:36 pm

                      It shouldn’t have stopped you looking at the pictures..

                    • Fatty B 09/02/2019 at 11:38 pm

                      It didn’t, but you said I must have ‘read’ the comic books.

                    • Caspurs 09/02/2019 at 11:41 pm

                      I was being polite..

                    I saw it at the Twickenham Odeon, together with nearly 2000 other teenagers.

    H H blog used to be funny, I used to look forward to each new blog, it is now purely an anti Levy vehicle, with hardly any contributors and no humor.

    The only reason Levy wants Spurs to win games is to lure fans in to attend matches and pay a fee for a seat in the stadium. And he expects them to pay for their own travel to and from said stadium, and to buy refreshments, and even be tempted to purchase items from the gift shop or by mail order.
    It’s outrageous, why can’t he adopt the clever business models of well run clubs like Manchester City, where the owner showers the club with money from the income of a small but oil rich nation?

    • Matt 09/02/2019 at 11:04 pm

      I agree: and let’s not get started on the fact that Levy hasn’t personally regenerated the whole of North East London.

      The latest blog is one of the best yet. Stark raving mad.

      • Caspurs 09/02/2019 at 11:39 pm

        Ah yes, he’s put the press right on what’s happening with CE. Why did we ever doubt him…

    • AntSpurs 09/02/2019 at 11:11 pm

      The only reason will give new contracts is to maximise sell on value , no player will be allowed to see out his playing days at Spurs ,worth taking a few quid and yet now we dont offer C23, Tobes and Jan. All in the name of HI revenge . Haha . What crockashit. You couldn’t make it up. oh wait

              The twin tower bombing was planned whilst Clinton was in power. It was a famously narrow victory (remember Florida’s ‘hanging chads’?) but Bush came into office and was going to pursue a more isolationist policy around the globe, but the outrage changed all that.
              You do wonder at the motivation of the terrorists, if it was to provoke the US into lashing out. You can theoretically argue it might be other dark forces manipulating the political agenda, but it’s an extreme viewpoint.

        The very same. He never removed his helmet which is totally true to the AD2000 character.
        Stallone had to show his ‘Hollywood Star’ face, totally against the character.

    Spurs have to put another shift in as no happy results today. More suspiciously bad calls to get certain teams off the mark.

    Bournemouth simply don’t look like the same side when they play away. They must be the most Jekyll and Hyde team in the PL. Something for Eddie Howe to work on before he could possibly be under consideration for the best job in footie.

    https://flatoeuf.com/title-burglars/

  • Matt 10/02/2019 at 10:22 am

    Another great read Dan. Thanks for the time and effort. Massive game; win required or we get fully sucked into a tough race for CL qualification. Longer term, TBH incredible ITK says Eriksen probably won’t sign (who’d a bl@@dy thunk it!). We need to re invest every penny and more for a class act; no promising 20 year olds, or we’ll have the best forward line in EPL and no guile to create chances for them. COYS!

    • Chauvelin 10/02/2019 at 10:42 am

      I was reading so far Eriksen has been offered 110k per week, a 50% pay rise, and if that’s true, I’m not surprised he hasn’t signed a contract for what will be the best years of his talent. He could earn 200k elsewhere I’m guessing.

      • Matt 10/02/2019 at 11:02 am

        I agree Chauv that’s low for his quality: though it isn’t close to what we reportedly offered Toby so I wonder if it’s accurate . Hope it’s right and we can offer him 175-200 and sort it. If not and if he just fancies trying Barca or RM; we need to spend like we never have before.

        • Chauvelin 10/02/2019 at 12:05 pm

          For me it’s a case of looking at how much you’d have to pay someone coming in to replace him, at the same age, and level of talent.
          I’m not talking about a young Brooks or Maddison, but an Isco. How much would you have to pay Isco, and now offer that to Eriksen.

      • SpurAndy 🥧🍒 13/02/2019 at 3:56 pm

        I think 110k is highly unlikely if HK is on 200k. The other factor is the bonus system which I believe is one of the best if not the best in the PL. This would add considerably to the basic salarary. I’m sure he’s get more at Real or Barca but he might also end up in the courts 😁.
