The trouble with OneOfOurOwn

Just seen this visual graph of HK10’s Premier League output before and after his injury at the end of last season. The work is by a certain @EFaroh (https://twitter.com/efaroh/status/1038879813157699584?s=21) on The Twitter. He admits himself that the long block between May and July which indicates the off season slightly throws the visual impact of the graph.

What it does seem to demonstrate is that his numbers have measurably changed since the injury in March. This does not even take into consideration any stats during the World Cup.

Our Harry scored a much vaunted 6 goals at Russia 2018, with an impressive 66.67% conversion rate…better than any other striker including MBappe at 60%. Only problem is, that 3 of Kane’s goals came from the penalty spot, which skews his ‘outfield’ data a bit.

There’s no doubt that over time Harry is up there with the very best. His stats are better that Ronaldo’s, for example, over the last 4 seasons, on several metrics:

All the same, as I regularly say, some stats can mask the realities of what you can see if you’re watching the games with your own eyes 👀.

It’s pretty clear that Kaneinho has not been firing on all cylinders despite confounding partisan critics with the way he keeps breaking records, winning awards (WC Golden Boot) and exorcising hoodoos (He does score in August!).

Historically, he’s been the sort of player who’s played himself back into form. Perhaps he’s been asked to change his game a little this term to work with Moura? Or to give defences who’ve had 4 PL seasons to work out a strategy for him/us?

To me, he looks a bit knackered. Or crocked. Hasn’t got the same snap about him. Hope I’m wrong.

    Very good read. I dont agree with everything in the article but our defence cannot be too relaxed for this next game. The way we defended the two goals that Watford scored was attrocious. 3 CB’s and nothing in the air.
    We have to be much mroe sharper against Liverpool,its a game that will totally about belief

    From Sky:

    Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed that Hugo Lloris will remain captain of the club despite accepting a drink-driving charge.

    Lloris has been fined £50,000 and banned from driving for 20 months after pleading guilty to drink-driving at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday.

    But Pochettino says the World Cup-winning captain will not be stripped of the armband at Tottenham when he returns from injury.

    • SeattleSpursGuy 13/09/2018 at 1:58 pm

      Dan Kilpatrick @Dan_KP

      #thfc Poch says Lloris will stay as club captain & that we cannot play God when judging him. “It was a mistake & then we are men & women – we can all make mistakes. It’s a massive lesson to everyone.”

  • SeattleSpursGuy 13/09/2018 at 1:54 pm

    Article about the ‘Big 6’ clubs. Bloody decent of the DM to include Poch’s arm in the photo.

    • Chauvelin 13/09/2018 at 1:59 pm

      This only adds fuel to the fire.

      The Big Six comprising the five usual suspects, and then they are compelled against their wishes to add Spurs because we keep gate crashing their party.

  • McG ⚽⚽ 13/09/2018 at 2:00 pm

    So then, likely team?! Lookin as though no Hugo & Deli

    …………………..Vorm
    …….Trips, Jugs, Jan, Rose
    ……………..Dier, Dembele,
    ……Lucas, Eriksen, Lamela
    ……………….Hurrykane

    Bench: Gazza, Davies, Dirty, Wanyama,Winky, Sonny, Nando

    • Chauvelin 13/09/2018 at 2:02 pm

      So Vorm for Liverpoo and then rotate Gazzaniga for Inter away?

      • McG ⚽⚽ 13/09/2018 at 2:03 pm

        No, think it’ll be Vorm for both, Hugo poss back for inter too…

    • Chauvelin 13/09/2018 at 2:04 pm

      I’d start Dier with Winks, and bring on Dembele for final 25 minutes. Probably the reverse will happen.

      • McG ⚽⚽ 13/09/2018 at 2:09 pm

        Winks isn’t match fit, big game to chuck him in!

    • Hartley 13/09/2018 at 2:06 pm

      I think Son will start ahead of Lamela.

      • Bruxie 13/09/2018 at 2:06 pm

        Yep.
        Ready to go.

        • Chauvelin 13/09/2018 at 2:12 pm

          Completely knackered physically and emotionally. I’d rest Son for at least a week. He can drive Lloris around until Daniel arranges for alternative transport for silly Billy Hugo.

      • McG ⚽⚽ 13/09/2018 at 2:08 pm

        Lamela nicely rested, & tenacious in the tackle. Think Son will be rested as impact sub personally.

        • Bruxie 13/09/2018 at 2:09 pm

          Lamela came on to great effect against Fulham.

                  Works for kicks too…

  • Bruxie 13/09/2018 at 2:34 pm

    So Winks is now a strong ball winner?

    Gazza was good against the Scots, too.

    You have to play them to beat them.
    Winks isn’t a ball winner in the same mould as Moussa.
    And we’ll need a ball winner on Saturday against that midfield and attack.

  • Bruxie 13/09/2018 at 3:09 pm

    Note to self:-
    Stop asking questions expecting an answer.
    Just state your opinion. The final whistle on Saturday will reveal what should and what should not have happened.

    • Chauvelin 13/09/2018 at 3:19 pm

      We’ve got to outplay them Bruxie. Not be scared of them and set the team up just to try and stop ’em! As I said above, liklehood is Dembele will start.

      • Bruxie 13/09/2018 at 3:28 pm

        Playing Dembele from the off is not being scared.
        Winks is not match fit and needs bringing to the boil gradually over the next few weeks.
        Dembele is match fit.

      Doesn’t stop Hugo voluntarily relinquishing the armband if he considers he has let everyone down.

      • SpurAndy 🍒 🥧 13/09/2018 at 3:27 pm

        I hope he’s got all the lads together and admitted he’s crocked up big time and asked them whether they still want him as El Capitane. Hopefully they’ve all said yep, we’re in this together. If they didn’t then I’d expect him to do the honourable thing.

        • Bruxie 13/09/2018 at 3:31 pm

          He’s not going to change a successful formula.

          He’ll be skipper until he leaves.

          The team has a dynamic. It will not be changed for the want of a chauffeur.

    It would have been very bad man-management and bad for morale and team discipline for Poch to further punish/humiliate Lloris by stripping him of the captaincy.

    Lloris committed an offence, owned up to it, took his punishment: let’s move on.

                      When my mum died we donated her upright piano to the local community centre as no was interested. Just too big for most houses.

                      That is the case. Cost bid ol’ acoustic Joanna’s take a bit of moving and a bit of tuning. I was bidding on a digital one. I have one now but it’s a bit sh*t.

                    • AntSpurs 13/09/2018 at 10:22 pm

                      Only joshing, I’m high class all the way. That’s my trouble, well one of em. I always played pretty cheap shit guitars. From having a taster of a quality Gibson Les Paul which was my dream guitars, the sounda and feel was incredible. Became bit of a snob from then, couldn’t stand playing any old crap. By the time I could afford one, the passion and time had gone. Now again I can’t afford one 😔. Nevermind few irons still in the fire.

      He injured himself whilst being tasered as he was falling out of his car.

        Did he injure the arresting officer’s foot with his groin?

        • stevo1987 13/09/2018 at 9:39 pm

          Maybe he puked on said PC’s boots. That was after puking all over his new Porsche. Now, it doesn’t matter what the reading on the breathalyser is, if you are puking you are really pissed. Well, that’s from my experience. As a young lad 4 pints could do that to me and the room would spin and yurp ugh erp burp puke… I was pissed. Obviously, since I, ahem, turned professional that doesn’t happen.

        • SeattleSpursGuy 13/09/2018 at 10:14 pm

          I’ve always considered ‘several’ to mean three or more, but less than ‘many’

          • Fatty B 13/09/2018 at 10:15 pm

            Agreed.

          • 61 Spurs Nut 🌰 13/09/2018 at 10:20 pm

            For several decades I’ve thought it was two or more.

            • AntSpurs 13/09/2018 at 10:28 pm

              See I always thought it was at least 3 but the limit was relative. I mean the less than many is a good indicator but if we’re talking about 5 sweets that’s not many but 5 houses that’s shit loads.

              • 61 Spurs Nut 🌰 13/09/2018 at 10:29 pm

                It’s fair to say that I have been wrong for several decades.

    I’m sure you if you ran around central London waving a water pistol in the air and shouting religious slogans you’d soon get the opportunity to meet him.

    Oi Oi Syd. Had a look at Pennant Hills earlier. Shit at golf but I’m on me way alreadies. I say I’m shit thought I was shit at chess and some guy told me he was 18th in Britain. I really think I’m shit but by half hour he had 1 pawn and a knight. I went on a slaying spree. Only strategy I had was to take his stuff. I didn’t trap the king but he had nothing left and gave up. I offered to play 1 more but he was done. How are ya mate ?

    • AntSpurs 13/09/2018 at 10:59 pm

      That was a really kind gesture Syd. Love it.

        And very very genuine buddy. If you or any of the boys are here (including bloody Kiwi’s who selfishly won’t share trophies) I will gladly look after them. I am lucky mate, good missus, step daughter, not wealthy but OK, love my golf, the harbour (
        me and a couple of mates have a nice little day cruiser berthed on Sydney harbour) and I love it most when I can share.
        Was told in 2007 I had 4 months to live and realised then my real perspective on life. Simply enjoy and share. I am very lucky so get over here Ant. 🙂

    I’ve always considered ‘several’ to mean three or more, but less than ‘many’

    A few is three or four. Several is five up to nine by my way of thinking.

                  Smattering – small amount of something I.e few.
                  So a smudge of paprika , wine , oil, salt etc

              Oh no what’s a tad ? I said it earlier and now I’m not sure.

              • Fatty B 14/09/2018 at 12:25 am

                A tad’s a bit.

                • AntSpurs 14/09/2018 at 12:26 am

                  🤯

                  • AntSpurs 14/09/2018 at 12:27 am

                    Close to smidge

                    • AntSpurs 14/09/2018 at 12:29 am

                      A drill pice is a bit and that would be a smattering if bits. Nearly there 🤔

    I know a transgender called Seven. True story.

    Not Seven of Nine? Please don’t destroy my world!

    • Chauvelin 14/09/2018 at 12:15 am

      Scary.

      • Fatty B 14/09/2018 at 12:18 am

        That’s more than seven of nine.

        • Fatty B 14/09/2018 at 12:19 am

          It’s more like all of most of it. Or most of all of it.

          • Chauvelin 14/09/2018 at 12:34 am

            You’re right. It’s more like nine sevenths.

  • Fatty B 14/09/2018 at 12:24 am

    Come on, Danno, get a move on. We’re gasping here.
    Can’t wait for Saturday’s game. COYS!

  • AntSpurs 14/09/2018 at 12:28 am

    What’s gowanin, Fatts. Whats the score? Fatwa Fatwa what’s the score ? You going to the game ?

  • AntSpurs 14/09/2018 at 12:31 am

    If we win 5-0. Harry should come across and tell us how much he really loves us. You think 🤗

    • Chauvelin 14/09/2018 at 12:35 am

      Five is definitely several. Or is it many? How many IS many?

      • Chauvelin 14/09/2018 at 12:36 am

        Let’s just call it plenty.

  • AntSpurs 14/09/2018 at 12:38 am

    Could be shit loads

  • Chauvelin 14/09/2018 at 12:39 am

    Did someone say Dele is unfit? He looks quite fragile, I worry quite a lot that he isn’t the most durable of players.

  • AntSpurs 14/09/2018 at 12:39 am

    How many would 5 be against the Pool. Shiiiiit loads

    • AntSpurs 14/09/2018 at 12:39 am

      Or several

    • Chauvelin 14/09/2018 at 12:40 am

      A bundle.

    • Chauvelin 14/09/2018 at 12:40 am

      Definitely ample.

    • Syd 14/09/2018 at 12:55 am

      Or maybe not enough

      • AntSpurs 14/09/2018 at 1:34 am

        Looking foward to seeing spurs 5 Liverpool 6

  • AntSpurs 14/09/2018 at 12:41 am

    A smattering , definitely not a smidge.

    • Chauvelin 14/09/2018 at 12:42 am

      My prediction is we’ll win 3-2. The best of five.

      • Chauvelin 14/09/2018 at 12:43 am

        Then we’ll do Inter in their backyard 2-0.

        • Chauvelin 14/09/2018 at 12:48 am

          That’ll do pig, that’ll do.

          A pig and a dog. That’s what I call perfect.

          • Syd 14/09/2018 at 12:54 am

            Terrific movie

      • AntSpurs 14/09/2018 at 12:45 am

        Yeah we’ll go 1 down , score 2 , they’ll equalise and then Wanyama will score the winning belter. So hope it’s Lamela , if not Son.

        • AntSpurs 14/09/2018 at 12:47 am

          Sissoko would be dreamland

          • Chauvelin 14/09/2018 at 12:49 am

            I’m not rushing to the bookies on that one.

  • Chauvelin 14/09/2018 at 12:50 am

    See you. I’m off to fight spiders.

    • AntSpurs 14/09/2018 at 12:57 am

      Night Glossy. Sweet dreams

    • Syd 14/09/2018 at 1:04 am

      What? again?

  • Syd 14/09/2018 at 12:52 am

    Sky is reporting that both Lloris and Dele are out of the match against the Dips.

    Did they also report that Brian has come home

    • AntSpurs 14/09/2018 at 12:57 am

      Yaaaaay, hahahaha

  • AntSpurs 14/09/2018 at 12:55 am

    Haha . Same odds as Leicester winning the league. For anyone with sleeping problems . My son had a consultation with a CAMS specialist today for associates ADHD and OCD and this chap , happened to be husband last day working with children for 28 years , moving to probation services dealing with personality disorders. He was fucking brilliant. He showed us a technique , slightly his own version of a technique that was founded about a year ago to calm anxiety and to aid sleep. We almost passed our , all of us after 10 minutes. He recommended it twice a day, it’s called the square something or other method. This evening my boy passed out straight away – miracle. Anyone interested I can have a go at explain or tomorrow. It works

    • Syd 14/09/2018 at 1:00 am

      It might help my partner on a serious note. She’s always laying awake thinking and only gets about 5 hours sleep per night. So guess how many hours I get to sleep per night. It’s always anxiety no doubt. Whether it be work or personal life. So mate yeah I would like to know about it

  • AntSpurs 14/09/2018 at 1:02 am

    I’m having a quick look online. He didn’t have it written down it was too good for that. Back in a jiffy.

  • AntSpurs 14/09/2018 at 1:20 am

    Take a square, as you run your finger slowly across the first side you breathe in at the same time the finger runs across and then as it runs down the second side you breathe out and back up the 3rd you breathe in. Go round the board twice so four breaths on and 4 out. You asleep yet you bastard. Now here’s the difference yin then clench your toes for 10 secs and gently release. Then go twice round the square again and then clench calves, thighs , buttocks for 10 and slowly release. Ok I should add that your in a seated position. Ok again twice around and then clench fists and release. After last 2 rounds around the square you raise your arms as though you are doing a seated chest press but take your arms back so your shoulder blades connect . Hold for 10 and release . That’s it. Morning and night. Only takes 10 minutes , haven’t found a what happens if you double the dose or use head and neck etc but I was ready for sleeps and my boy said when asked how he felt , he said it didn’t work and then he had his head on my lap for the rest of the session and didn’t want to get up. Did the same before bed and was out/ the kid never sleeps, never has. Hope this helps. 😴

    • AntSpurs 14/09/2018 at 1:25 am

      This chap said he had an autistic child who he used to visit and had to climb over 4 TVs that had been smashed to bits by his temper and after 3 weeks of doing this at the point of his triggers it worked perfectly.

  • Antspurs 14/09/2018 at 1:49 am

    Forgot to say that the breaths are with a little gusto. I’m off tooodle oo. Youuuuu Spuuurs. Oh we gonna fuck that cunt Salah and the rest.

  • Syd 🇦🇺 14/09/2018 at 2:31 am

    snoooooorrrrrre, snoooooorrrrrrrre (best effort at typing a snoring noise) lol.

    Come on, Danno, get a move on. We’re gasping here.
    Can’t wait for Saturday’s game. COYS!

    Sorry, Fatty. I got blogger’s block and didn’t get it across to Flatty until gone eleven last night. Even then, like my love life, it wasn’t what I was hoping for, so you might all have to carry on conversing with each other beneath this exceedingly fine post of Flatty’s for a little while longer.

    Can’t wait for Saturday’s game either. COYS!

    • Flat Oeuf 14/09/2018 at 7:21 am
