O Tottenham

Jose Mourinho & The Bad Spurs, featuring Tottenham U13s boys & girls sides.

Despite the fact we’ve now lost five of our last six Premier League matches and have only managed to beat Leeds, Sheffield United and West Brom in the league since beating Arsenal in early December, I just can’t seem to switch off the hope.

Although it didn’t feel like it at the time, we had a mammoth 70% possession against West Ham and 20 shots. In the second half especially, we actually looked like we knew how to attack, got a Dele sighting, and Bale probably had his best Premier League game for us since he returned to the club. It was good to see Reguilon back too.

If Bale’s screamer had flown in…

If Lanzini’s screamer had flown over…

If… if… if… if… if…

Probably best to sweep the fact only four of our shots were on target under the garish claret carpet that spans the vast empty spaces between the pitch and the stands at The London Stadium. Also best not to dwell on the fact that a man paid £15m a year to pick football sides put one together that featured a central defensive partnership of Dier and Sanchez. Does choosing Alderweireld and Dier – probably our least error prone pairing back there at the moment – for both our games against Wolfsberger indicate that he’s pretty much kissed top four goodbye?

I’ve got to admit I pretty much had kissed top four goodbye myself after the defeat against West Ham, but then you look at our next three league fixtures – Burnley, Fulham and Palace – and think there could actually be nine points there while West Ham and Chelsea have the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool to negotiate across those three games. In theory, given the patchy form of the other teams who also have realistic designs on fourth place, by the time we face Arsenal on 14th March, we could be right back in the mix.

I hope, in the end, the hope kills me quickly.

As for today’s opponents, we haven’t lost at home to Burnley since those long ago cup winning glory days of Keith Burkinshaw, getting tonked at home in the League Cup quarter finals in January 1983 following a November exit from the Cup Winners Cup against Bayern Munich and a few weeks ahead of finally losing our grip on the FA Cup in a 2-0 defeat at Goodison Park:

Don’t worry about the fact it was a long time ago. I’ve gone and found you some footage:

To counter that, we did have a strong finish to that season in the old First Division, eventually coming fourth and securing UEFA Cup football for the following season, and we all know how that ended up. This narrow win over Arsenal at The Lane helped us on our way:

For Burnley’s last win over us in the league in North London, you have to go all the way back to 1974/75 and a 2-3 reverse in Terry Neill’s unhappy spell in charge of the club. They did us the season before that by the same scoreline in Bill Nicholson’s last season.

They got a right good tonking the last time they visited, though, with Son securing himself the Puskas Award for the best goal of the last twelve months for his sensational slaloming run.

It was Son on the mark again when we did them at theirs earlier this season, though we made a bit of a grind of that game, our first since the madness of 3-3 V West Ham as we shut up shop and began our snoozefest towards the top of the table.

Our results might have dropped off the proverbial cliff in the league since then, but the games against Wolfsberger were a good watch and there have been signs against West Brom and West Ham that there’s life left in this squad yet. The papers might be doing their best to sell off Kane to Man City and this might have been the hardest season to get through since the days of Sherwood, but all we can do is watch what’s served up before us, and a game against a team who sit beneath our current watermark of Leeds United and have only won once in six games – especially if our own team features Bale and Dele and Son and Kane with Ndombele roaming around somewhere behind them – could actually be a good watch.

Here’s hoping.

Come on you Spurs!

With Sheffield United’s win, Derby County’s record of Premier League futility stands for another year. In 2007-08, Derby earned just 11 points, as well as the record for the fewest wins in a Premier League season with just 1 victory in 38 games; also most defeats (29), fewest goals scored (20), most goals conceded in a 38-game season (89), longest run without victory (32 matches), and earliest relegation (29 March).

Newcastle had the dishonor of dropping points in both games with Derby, losing away and drawing at home.

During the game with Burnley, the commentators said when we bought Doherty, we intended playing Davies at left back with him staying back and Doherty pushing forward on the right.
But then we had the chance to loan Regullion and that threw the plan up in the air.
I’ve not checked the dates on when Doherty and Reggie joined so could be nonsense.

Watching the Senate hearing supposedly about security failures on January 6. Senator Grassley desperately wants FBI Director Wray to say ANTIFA was involved, even though Wray has repeatedly said the riot was the work of Trumpy douchebags, white supremacist assholes, anti-government dickheads, Q-nuts, and there is no evidence of ANTIFA. 

Security failures barely getting a mention. What a waste.

The Proud Boys were waiting to try breaking into the Capitol from several points simultaneously. They hadn’t attended Trump’s speech, they made a direct beeline for the House to be in position ahead of the general crowd, and ready to lead the assault. They were at the head of the mob, so how antifa could figure is beyond reason.
Additional: unless the Proud Boys are a false flag antifa organisation! 🙃🤯

As we are talking Europa matters, just thought I’d mention this horrible thought. If we finish in the final European spot like last season, it puts us in the new UEFA Europa Conference League (UECL) competition. So, not even the Europa League but stuck in with the real dregs. And the ‘prize’ for winning the UECL is a Ropey spot, that’s how shite it is.

Blimey, I’d never want to play in this competition. It’s like the naughty step.

While tuned in, I can’t help but feel peed off by the decision to swap the two legs for the Zagreb tie. Why did we have to switch rather than the Arse, especially as we moved to the Wed date for the Wolfsberger tie? Alternatively, why didn’t we just go for another Wednesday night like last time? I don’t take any comfort from the possibility we’ll have more rest time before the derby game, simply because the EL trophy is so much more important than the PL (and bragging rights) in my opinion!!

‘Jose Mourinho must keep faith with this attacking plan against better opponents.

Mourinho might pat himself on the back for this one, finally playing our (almost) strongest team (Dier in for Sanchez imo), playing Son, Kane, Moura and Bale with N’Domb and Hojbjerg behind but he has had these choices available to him for some time but has left it so late that we are fighting every week to stay in touch and have to climb when we should already be up there or at least somewhere near there.
