Oh when the Spurs, go marching in

Feels like we’re under siege, and a lot of it’s of our own making. The game on Monday begins to take on even more importance. The possibility is that this side could be forged into even more of a steely outfit under the lights at OT.

Fergie used to foster great team spirit with his “they’ve all got it in for us” schtick. Poch needs to use everything that’s gone on with our Club being under attack on stadium delays, stadium leaks, Hugo, CE’s contract talks ‘stalling’, even Durham’s trolling of Dele and get the performance that ends in a win.

Whilst a loss or draw would be able to be spun as understandable, given all the distractions, a win allows us to push all of this shit back on to our detractors…and there’ll be plenty of talk of us ‘coming of age’, being ‘a serious threat’ etc etc.

In the grander scheme of things the result may not matter either way, but in the short term this one has just taken on ‘season-defining’ status.

    Firstly, I hope Hugo still plays, he needs sorting but not at the expense of weakening us at old traff. This is the first I’ve heard of CE’s contract stalling, not pleasing at all!

  • Matt 25/08/2018 at 9:03 am

    Most of us are old enough to remember when a trip to OT would be damage limitation and a manager patronised by Ferguson. Now we expect a win or draw at least and they’d swap managers in a heartbeat. Clearly a crisis.

    Morning Flatster and Ouefers, think this is a good time to be playing Manure although Hugo’s indiscretions won’t have helped us. Not sure I see the ‘short term, season defining status’, is that possible?

    • Matt 25/08/2018 at 9:09 am

      I agree Andy; good time to play them. Mourinho has sucked the joy and confidence out of them; he’s managed to make them 60% of what they could be. Contrast that with Poch….

  • Danspurs 25/08/2018 at 9:17 am

    Huge game for both clubs. If we beat utd and City and Liverpool win, they’re effectively out of the title race three games in with a very unhappy bunny in charge. We desperately need to win to build on our away win at the bridge last season. Felt we deserved more than we got at old Trafford last two seasons. Wish we were playing today and not Monday night. My heart says spurs to win by two clear goals and control the game. My head says utd by their only shot on target following a mourinhio bore fest. COYS!

    I assume there’s nothing in this contreo talk. But if it’s true (and assuming players on a free can sign?) that’s a good bit of business I reckon. Wages would be a problem and we’d need to sell not loan Danny. So a lot of ifs…

            Where did I say it wasn’t a good film? All I said was I think he’s done better. I still enjoyed it but I just don’t think it’s quite of the standard of his other works.

                  I know you thought it was a good film but perhaps not as good as other Anderson’s films. My comment was basically stating I thought it WAS one of his best films. I even mentioned it abut year ago on the other site.
                  No prob’s at all.

        • Chauvelin 25/08/2018 at 10:00 am

          It’s a startling film. Anderson is an amazing director.

              Yep, terrific film again. Anderson is one of those where you can watch a movie and straight away know he is the director….Like a wine from a particular region….just brilliant

              • Chauvelin 25/08/2018 at 10:37 am

                Wes Anderson seems to meld together the old film making traditions of the Silent Movie with modern styles and techniques. He really is a special visionary artist.

              Definitely. It’s an absolute treat.

  • syd 25/08/2018 at 9:58 am

    I think we can beat anybody and especially Utd. Hugo should play but if not I am quite confident in Vorm or Gazzaniga.
    Not worried about Ericksen contract talk.s He has a longish contract now and someone will have to pay a bloody lot to get him. I think it will depend on how we go this season over all.
    Another website is whinging about Dele’s little fingers. Now it’s bottom of the barrel stuff and obviously just searching for things to hate about Spurs. get a grip, see a doctor about your issues and grow up idiots.

    • Chauvelin 25/08/2018 at 10:33 am

      If Dele wasn’t playing well that would be a concern. But he is, and yet they still get on his back. It’s almost as if they don’t like Spurs…

      • syd 25/08/2018 at 10:46 am

    Firstly, I hope Hugo still plays, he needs sorting but not at the expense of weakening us at old traff. This is the first I’ve heard of CE’s contract stalling, not pleasing at all!

    He’s been about to sign all summer……..the fact it hasn’t happened leads me to realise that Levy has not offered what he is happy with. With Barca and Madrid in the shadows lurking with massive contracts he is well within his rights to hold out for a “market” rate contract for himself.
    You also have to factor in that Eriksen and Toby have been massively under paid for the last two years and would in my opinion harbour some resentment towards Levyomics.
    Pay the man Levy or he will do what Toby has and decide he wants out.

    • syd 25/08/2018 at 10:04 am

      I have never seen one single quote from Toby stating he “wants out”.

      • Sexy Beast 25/08/2018 at 10:08 am

        Er Syd, the fact that he refused to sign a £130k a week contract should tell you all you need to know.

        • syd 25/08/2018 at 10:10 am

          Beasty don’t get me wrong I am not saying he wants to stay or go, but he has been falsely quoted so many times when imo he has acted professionally and not said anything like that publicly.
          May I also ask what evidence do you have he was offered 130K other than anecdotal.

          • Sexy Beast 25/08/2018 at 10:14 am

            I heard it in the jungle drums, didn’t you?

            • syd 25/08/2018 at 10:19 am

              Nope and I don’t believe it to be true either. 130k pw for a 29 year old defender at Spurs. Never ever. You seriously don’t believe that do you?

              • Sexy Beast 25/08/2018 at 10:34 am

                Well Toby is/was a game changing defender when he signed, we went from MP’s fisrt season concedeing 50+ goals to having the joint best defence 2nd season, 3rd season the best defence and last season we will never know how it would have ended had he played the full campaing. It is widely reported that he turned down £130k a week contract in Jan which leaves me to believe that he wants more or to leave, as MP didn’t pick him throught Feb to May (apart from two games) then i’d say its fair to assume MP thinks he is not commited and therefore most likely wants to leave….
                *I haven’t seen the contract or spoken to Toby.

                • Syd 25/08/2018 at 10:44 am

                  So no real evidence then. Toby started two games and started the last game. The fact he started the last game, does that mean Poch still thinks he is not committed.
                  No Spurs defender has ever been paid or even been offered more than 110K per week (I think Jan might be close – but not certain). Toby has never stated publicly he wants to leave.
                  “Widely reported” means someone started it and then every one else ran with it and repeated and repeated it.
                  * I haven’t seen the contract or spoken to Toby either which is why I have nothing factual. Happy to call him though. 🙂

    Excellent article about Toby in the Times today.

    Current contract details were leaked by Football Leaks online and all this talk of a contract extension and the resulting buy out clause of 27m Euros is all apparently true.
    He wanted 3x his current salary and will probably take legal action if the Club extend his contract without giving him a pay rise.
    No official bid from Manure because Ed didn’t want to deal with Dan.
    That’s why Jose has the hump with Ed.

    Poch is described as ruthless when players upset him.
    Wonder how he’ll deal with Hugo. He has to pick him on Monday.
    Kane or Verts for skipper.

    Its funny at a time when Dele,Eriksen,Verts,Lamela etc all mature,Hugo the captain of the World Champs goes on a bender.But when it comes to the two managers,right now there should be no contest.

                      Vaping uses nicotine, but it’s the tar and by products in tobacco that is the real menace which coats the lungs in muck. And those are avoided by vaping.

            • Sniper 25/08/2018 at 12:12 pm

              I used to watch it Saturday mornings with Eddie Waring commentating. That was as far as my interest went. Always preferred Union. Was always a Saracens fan from young when they were my local team.

        • GDawg 25/08/2018 at 11:52 am

          Ours are almost all born and bred in NZ. We’re just at another level right now. Ominous signs heading towards a RWC

          • GDawg 25/08/2018 at 11:53 am

            Arguably our 3 best players tonight were all Caucasian, just saying

            • Sniper 25/08/2018 at 11:55 am

              And from Wellington. Just sayin’. 😁

          • Sniper 25/08/2018 at 11:53 am

            Nah! They pack one whenever anyone mentions France. England will be the main rival.

            • GDawg 25/08/2018 at 12:14 pm

              France are always feared, but we’ve had a couple of good results at RWC time against them now. England’s problem is that it’s around about the time that Eddie Jones outstays his welcome with his players. We look good but it is wide open at the moment. Ireland look strong but it will be all mental for them. The Africaans? Anyone’s guess

      I think so. But we are in uncharted territory, no one has ever repeated RWC wins (until we did it in 2015), let alone a three-peat. It only takes one amazing game and you are on the plane home

      • Sniper 25/08/2018 at 12:20 pm

        Irish are building nicely. They are a match for anyone on their day.
        I don’t fear the cheese eating surrender monkeys. England can handle the frogs with ease.
        Springboks might be on the comeback trail, but are one dimensional.

        • GDawg 25/08/2018 at 12:22 pm

          Irish have their own mental hurdles to climb. But they can potentially be a match for anyone

          • Sniper 25/08/2018 at 12:27 pm

            Irish. Mental hurdles. No comment.

        • Ronwol1960-61🕎⚽🎷🎥 25/08/2018 at 1:23 pm

          Yes…amazing signing but…maybe too good for Wolves….

    • Chauvelin 25/08/2018 at 1:16 pm

      Wolves have got a decent attack. They should be comfortably midtable.

      • Ronwol1960-61🕎⚽🎷🎥 25/08/2018 at 1:17 pm

        Their defence havent been bad either

  • Matt 25/08/2018 at 1:26 pm

    My view on Toby probably a bit unpopular. He was 26 year old journeyman loaned out as not considered good enough for Altetico. He jumped to sign a contract with us; no one else came in for him. So after Poch transformed him he decides he wishes he hadn’t signed it. Well tough; you did, eyes open. All the careful tweets don’t change his behaviour. Contrast that with; say; Alli. More marketable; signed a contract. BTW; all that said I hope we keep him and he gets back to the quality he showed for one season (and one WC).

    • Sexy Beast 25/08/2018 at 1:42 pm

      Journyman? He couldn’t get into the best defence in the last few years in Europe so went on loan to Southampton for a season, there numbers were amazing with him in the team and average without him. They very much wanted to sign him. Our numbers went from average to excellent with Toby in the team but Levy didn’t acknowledge this with an improved contract, that imo is where the problem is with Toby and Tottenham, the feeling of being under valued by your bosses.

      • Chauvelin 25/08/2018 at 1:47 pm

        But apart from that, what have the Romans ever done for us?

    ‘Sanchez misses out as Lamela handed start by Pochettino – Spurs team to face Manchester United’

    This was the Football London headline and like a mug I clicked on it. Guess what, it was nothing to do with Pochettino, but some geezer called Lee Wilmot picking his side to face ManUre. Just that.

      Haha, you’ve taken on a role I had 2 seasons ago when I was on the fringes of the Top 10 in Nutty’s League without having one solitary Gooner OR Chav player (current of former) out of principle. It lead to the Big Cull of ‘17. You probably all remember it. It was quite something.

      (I know literally nobody will remember it, but it mattered to me.)

      • Hartley 26/08/2018 at 10:22 am

        I’m going to look at the next fifty today. I don’t have such an issue with the chavs as they’re just mercenaries playing for a second division side with money, apart from that c*nt Hazard oh and Drogba and Terry and Fabregas and Costa and little Denis Wise and Ron Harris and David Speedie and the list goes on, I see what you mean.

  • syd 26/08/2018 at 1:13 am

    Matt
    My view on Toby probably a bit unpopular. He was 26 year old journeyman loaned out as not considered good enough for Altetico. He jumped to sign a contract with us; no one else came in for him. So after Poch transformed him he decides he wishes he hadn’t signed it. Well tough; you did, eyes open. All the careful tweets don’t change his behaviour. Contrast that with; say; Alli. More marketable; signed a contract. BTW; all that said I hope we keep him and he gets back to the quality he showed for one season (and one WC).

    “His behaviour”….please explain…..nothing but exemplary imho. Where does this all come from…He has never made himself not available, never dissed the club or Poch and played to his full potential. Behaviour?????

    • Flat Oeuf 26/08/2018 at 6:56 am

      We may never know for sure but you’ve heard by now that he shook hands on £120k per week +/- and then reneged? (I know people don’t believe this) He was injured for months last season so had to get by on his measly £50k per week (which he had agreed only a year or so before), without performance-related bonuses…so he still got paid around £1m whilst he was ‘off-sick’. Do you think it’s completely reasonable to turn down a very decent contract offer when you haven’t been able to do your job for several months?

      Seen from his perspective, I can see why he wants the highest possible basic for his last contract…all the more so if he might be injured more often as he gets older ( see Kompany), but it’s a risk for Spurs too.

      After paying BAE and Adebayor way beyond their shelf life, DL has become even more keen on rewarding players when they actually perform for the Club. I’m ok with the principle of that, even though we’re disadvantaged by it. I think I’d be more pissed off if we had Morata and Batshuayi on gawd knows how much and hardly a goal between them.

      • GDawg 26/08/2018 at 9:42 am

        The New England Patriots, the most successful NFL franchise of the last 10 years, generally tend to release or trade players before they hit the wall. When you take out the emotion it makes sense to avoid long deals on ageing players to protect the team’s future

        • GDawg 26/08/2018 at 9:42 am

          Having said that I’m keen to see Toby stay

    • Matt 26/08/2018 at 9:56 am

      Don’t get me wrong I want Toby to stay; we’re stronger with him. On behaviour, he’s running his contract down and trying to force a move when he’s been injured for long periods with us, and hadn’t done a lot before Poch then Spurs got hold of him. In fairness he hasn’t feigned illness like Ozil! Just my reading, others may look at it differently.

      • Sexy Beast 26/08/2018 at 10:06 am

        “he’s been injured for long periods with us”
        Matt, In reality he has had one bad “injury” that was last seasons hamstring, the season before he got kneed in the side of his knee by Super Jan in what could only be described a a freak injury. Hardly makes him injury prone to date. Just saying..

        • Matt 26/08/2018 at 10:11 am

          Didn’t he also have a fair stint out with a nerve injury the season before? His stats over the last 5/6 years show he hasn’t averaged a high number of league games. To clarify, I have not exposed myself to the insane blog that hates everything; I like Toby and hope he stays.

          • Sexy Beast 26/08/2018 at 10:28 am

            Damaged nerve from the knee from Jan into the side of his knee.

            • Flat Oeuf 26/08/2018 at 1:53 pm

              I’m not saying he’s Sicknote, but he isn’t a 40-50 game a season player either, even in a good year. This assertion was half the reason I got banned on the other place but the bloke gets injured and misses a not insignificant amount of games. That’s the truth.

  • Hartley 26/08/2018 at 10:13 am

    We used to have a dog called Toby.

    • Matt 26/08/2018 at 10:16 am

      My dog is Ted (clearly after Teddy Sheringham). My view is if you don’t have a dog named after a Spurs player you’re not a proper supporter.

      • Hartley 26/08/2018 at 10:23 am

        We need to sign a Brian then otherwise I’m fucked.

        • Hartley 26/08/2018 at 10:27 am

          We had a dog called Useless who died just last year, he covered a number of Spurs players, past and present, to be fair.

          I’m doing OK, this is the first time I’ve checked my score since the start. Clearly it pays for me to not to overthink it!! LOL. Sadly I had Jagielka and KdB in my team which has netted me no points since both of them have been out…..

          • GDawg 26/08/2018 at 12:39 pm

            When am I able to sub out players?

              Since we are moaning ok Ill join in. I thought I had picked a team before the first week but I think I had spent too much and was 2 players short so I took them all out and forgot to pick them again.
              Languishing now

            • GDawg 26/08/2018 at 12:42 pm

  • Bruxie 26/08/2018 at 10:45 am

    Big articles in the Sunday Times saying that the Russian has hired an expert to try and sell Chelscum.
    He’s already rejected a bid of 2bn.
    Need Ashley to put in a bid.

    That will probably mean the big spending is over but that he’ll want to keep his prize assets…if they want to stay that is.
    Now if I was Hazard I’d be off.

    • Superspoz 🏆 26/08/2018 at 10:47 am

      You are wrong. Why would anyone want to sell such a flawless, self sufficient, well run club?

      • Bruxie 26/08/2018 at 10:54 am

        He’s gonna join Nutty’s league instead.

    • Matt 26/08/2018 at 10:51 am

      Ideally this will take at least a season or more during which time there will be maximum uncertainty and disruption. And WHU get relegated and Arse finish 30 points behind us.

    I’m not saying he’s Sicknote, but he isn’t a 40-50 game a season player either, even in a good year. This assertion was half the reason I got banned on the other place but the bloke gets injured and misses a not insignificant amount of games. That’s the truth.

    Talking of Darren Anderton, who I oddly liked as a player, in his 317 Premier League matches he recorded only 3 assists, according to Transfermarkt which I find hard to believe. Although it had to taken into account that I had to watch him trying to inspire a Spurs team with such team mates as Heider Postiga.
    Here’s a report of Anderton scoring the opener at Highbury and just how wasteful Postiga was. Being there, I can corroborate just how good Anderton was that day, and how abysmal Postiga turned out to be. Yet another derby that Arsenal ought to have lost to the better Spurs team but won by the kind of jammy goals only they can manage.

      Read this report bearing in mind this was the so called ‘Invincibles’ season. Never has a club been so fortunate to luck their way through an entire season unbeaten and undeserved.

        dont mention das golden boots

  • Ronwol1960-61🕎⚽🎷🎥 26/08/2018 at 2:39 pm

    I must say Saha doesnt look like a player today

    • HD 🇺🇸 26/08/2018 at 3:08 pm

      Foe me, he seems a bit of a drama queen, king, whatever.

      • Ronwol1960-61🕎⚽🎷🎥 26/08/2018 at 3:15 pm

        He scored an excellent goal but too little too late

    • Chauvelin 26/08/2018 at 3:13 pm

      Saha? Who he?

      • Ronwol1960-61🕎⚽🎷🎥 26/08/2018 at 3:16 pm

        I did put him in my team as I thought it was good value

        • Superspoz 🏆 26/08/2018 at 3:18 pm

          Zzzz

          • Superspoz 🏆 26/08/2018 at 3:22 pm

            aha!

            • Chauvelin 26/08/2018 at 3:39 pm

              I see.

  • Matt 26/08/2018 at 2:50 pm

    Xena Warrior Princess! There it was on TV. Man; I’d forgotten how much I enjoyed that programme.

    • Chauvelin 26/08/2018 at 3:02 pm

      New Zealand again… And an Aussie Xena as well.

  • Superspoz 🏆 26/08/2018 at 3:24 pm

    Who’s bright idea was this Monday night football business ffs

  • Chauvelin 26/08/2018 at 3:41 pm

    So Watford maintain their perfect start. It really will be a top of the table tussle with Spurs. Elton must be a happy chappy.

    • Chauvelin 26/08/2018 at 3:42 pm

      And this without Richarlison. Who is recruiting for them? They’re doing a good job.

  • Chauvelin 26/08/2018 at 3:49 pm

    Fakinel. Chelsea will face a seriously weakened Newcastle side with Lascelles missing after a spat with Benitez, Shelvey out nursing an injury. Great.

  • Frontwheel 2 26/08/2018 at 4:26 pm

    Hazard just had the ball and didn’t dive,fakinel.

    • Chauvelin 26/08/2018 at 4:40 pm

      Yedlin brought down by dirty Cheatski.

  • Chauvelin 26/08/2018 at 4:39 pm

    What is happening to Dyche’s Burnley? Three conceded at Fulham first half.

    • Sexy Beast 26/08/2018 at 4:43 pm

      They can’t handle the Spursday night Cup.

      • Chauvelin 26/08/2018 at 4:49 pm

        They managed to score just before half time, so it’s 3-2.

  • Chauvelin 26/08/2018 at 4:52 pm

    ATTENTION: FYI

    South Korea play Uzbekistan at 10.00 am BST tomorrow (Monday). QF match.

    COYSon!

    • Chauvelin 26/08/2018 at 4:54 pm

      Last time I found a stream through Reddit.

      Imo, the 343 will only work when Winks is back as only one DM is needed in front of a back 3. Winks is the only natural no.8 we have.

      • Ronwol196061 26/08/2018 at 5:30 pm

        I think that’s true but we’ve yet to see the best Winks can do creatively

        • Ronwol196061 26/08/2018 at 5:34 pm

          Though if Eriksen plays there if he plays profoundly there would be less pressure on the DM

          • Ronwol196061 26/08/2018 at 5:34 pm

            Ditto Grealish

            • Ronwol196061 26/08/2018 at 5:35 pm

              Or Lamela or Dele

              • Ronwol196061 26/08/2018 at 5:36 pm

                Infact if a player owned the CM spot tbey would be pivotal in the whole set up and it would work

              • Sexy Beast 26/08/2018 at 5:39 pm

                What about Kovacic……oh shit!

    • Chauvelin 26/08/2018 at 5:20 pm

      What I don’t see if why our full backs pose more of a threat playing in a back four (when they are needed to cover the entire flank), rather than when they play as wings backs with a back three to provide security?

      • Chauvelin 26/08/2018 at 5:21 pm

        *is, not ‘if’.

      • Ronwol196061 26/08/2018 at 5:29 pm

        When we play with a back 4 Dier etc slips back to cover the extra spot

      • Ronwol196061 26/08/2018 at 5:31 pm

        I think that’s true but we’ve yet to see the best Winks can do creatively

        • Ronwol196061 26/08/2018 at 5:31 pm

          That was for Spoz

  • Ronwol196061 26/08/2018 at 5:32 pm

    Fulham look great today

  • Frontwheel 2 26/08/2018 at 5:35 pm

    Another dodgy pen

    • Flat Oeuf 26/08/2018 at 5:36 pm

      Ridonkulous.

  • Flat Oeuf 26/08/2018 at 5:40 pm

    Get in Magpies!

  • Ronwol196061 26/08/2018 at 5:42 pm

    Schurrie fantastic goday

    • Ronwol196061 26/08/2018 at 5:43 pm

      Goday to Burnley

  • Ronwol196061 26/08/2018 at 5:45 pm

    Yedlin o. G.

  • Ronwol196061 26/08/2018 at 5:47 pm

    I could fancy Fulham

  • Flat Oeuf 26/08/2018 at 6:00 pm
