Time for a Breather!

In about 1972 or so I must have finally decided that my twin brother, Paul, needed some competition, so I declared that I was a spurs fan. He was a Gooner, but a great one and he lived and died as the biggest Arsenal fanatic I’ve ever known. Despite my new found allegiance the first game I went to was with Paul and it was at Highbury to see a feisty match against Everton which culminated in an on-pitch bust-up 9as I recall. As a weeny teeny I winced at the big players laying into each other less than 20 feet away and didn’t fancy this any more. I never went to another Arsenal game that didn’t involve Spurs. The first time I remember going to a Spurs match was a couple of years later with my dad on 28th August 1976. I was 15 years young. Middlesbrough were as dull then as they always have been since and we were treated to a two steps forward, three steps back masterclass in anti-football, ending nil-nil. boro-76

That was the first and last game that my dad went to. As a grown-up neutral non-footy fan he must have thought he didn’t fancy this any more. Me, I was hooked. I went to a few more games during that fateful season with my older brother, Andy, who was a SpursNut too. Getting relegated was unpleasant but we had some good games on the way, particularly at the end of the season when we beat Villa and Leicester.

I went to most games in division two the following season, home and away. My trusty silver Sanyo transistor radio was my loyal companion and was clamped to my ear regularly, waiting to hear the results and cup draws. The last game at the Dell was the best match experience I had until 25th May 1984. This despite not being able to see sod all, stuck at the back as a teeny 17 year old in streams of piss. The atmosphere was unbelievable and the relief at the final whistle was indescribable. This was a nil-nil to die for. The great Burkinshaw squeezed us through by the skin of our teeth and we were back in the promised land.

Then the Argentines came and we were now the focus of attention. Trophies followed and I even went to Wembley with my sister, Angela, to see us retain the FA Cup. Thirty six years later and I’m still here, more hard-core Spurs than ever. Sadly, Paul, Andy, Angela and my dad aren’t. I love them all and I love you all here and many of those still on the other blog. I just can’t help myself!

COYFS!

    Can’t be a pen if the player kicks it out before he’s fouled can it?

    As far as I understand it a penalty cannot be awarded if the ball is not in play at the time the offence is committed.

  • Freund or Foe 06/07/2018 at 9:00 pm

    There will be at least one Tottenham player in the World Cup final.

                I’ll answer this one myself.

          • Freund or Foe 06/07/2018 at 9:12 pm

            Don’t think either of those were with us at the time.

            • Freund or Foe 06/07/2018 at 9:12 pm

              Nor was Martin Peters.

              • Freund or Foe 06/07/2018 at 9:13 pm

                  Van der Vaart…

                  …joined us just after the 2010 final.

                  So close.

  • UnkleTaff 06/07/2018 at 9:01 pm

    Not so worried about Belgium after that second half display. De Bruyne, in particular, was very quiet.

    Not so sure about Toby’s performance tonight. Saw something about new acquisition—Barrios?

  • Freund or Foe 06/07/2018 at 9:18 pm

    The only Tottenham players that have won a World Cup are Jimmy Greaves, Martin Peters, Jurgen Klinsmann, Osvaldo Ardiles, Ricky Villa. Jimmy didn’t play, and the rest weren’t with us at the time. That leaves just World Cup losers, and I can’t think of any.

    • UnkleTaff 06/07/2018 at 9:19 pm

      Christian Ziege in 2002.

      Get in.

        Ding ding! Good work.

        • UnkleTaff 06/07/2018 at 9:22 pm

          So what we’re saying is the only Tottenham player to have competed in a World Cup final did so on the losing side when he played for just six minutes.

          Until now.

          • Freund or Foe 06/07/2018 at 9:24 pm

  • UnkleTaff 06/07/2018 at 9:27 pm

    As good as Belgium were in that fist half I can’t shake the feeling that they were up against a piss poor Brazil side and that France will probably be able to take care of them with relative ease.

    • SpurAndy 🍒 🥧 06/07/2018 at 9:32 pm

      I think the first half Belgium would be to good for France.

      • Ronwol1960-61🕎⚽🎷🎥 06/07/2018 at 9:38 pm

        I think Mbpape is a big threat to Verts etc. Be a tough time with him

    • Ronwol1960-61🕎⚽🎷🎥 06/07/2018 at 9:35 pm

      I think that Brazil nearly scored a couple of goals early but Martinez’s plan took hold and muted them. Martinez did a great job using Fellaini on Neymar and DeBruyne going forward as the game went on.

    • Ronwol1960-61🕎⚽🎷🎥 06/07/2018 at 9:36 pm

      Lukaku was fantastic as well. they were superb on the counter.
      Brazil had too slow of build up and Brazil teams are always a bit arrogant

    • SpurAndy 🍒 🥧 06/07/2018 at 9:45 pm

      I thought hazard was pretty good.

      • Ronwol1960-61🕎⚽🎷🎥 06/07/2018 at 9:46 pm

        He played better than he did in the prev game but I though still weak Maybe he did a couple of things but spent a lot of time on the floor and rarely mad something happen.Lukaku was surprisingly good as was Fellaini

        • Ronwol1960-61🕎⚽🎷🎥 06/07/2018 at 9:50 pm

          Lukaku is a 9 and Fellaini’s 8 and a half 🙂

      • UnkleTaff 06/07/2018 at 10:34 pm

        I agree. Hazard was excellent in that second half. I reckon they might well have lost that game had it not been for him.

    No offence intended by my post Gazcrack. You did used to make me chuckle though, but in a humurous way not derogatory. I’m sure I provided many to people who didn’t agree with me on TBH, nevertheless my apols if my comment did annoy you. Pop in occasionally, we do have a larf and they say it’s good for the sole. Serious warning though that Harry will often ban peeps from his site if he sees them on here. So understand if you don’t fancy it.

      I don’t think I saw a comment from you Andy. Cheers though. It doesn’t bother me like that, its just confusing to be focused on when I’m not really a part of it all.

  • McG ⚽⚽ 07/07/2018 at 10:45 am

    Some quite interesting stats re todays game:

    England have made over 1000 more passes than the Swedes
    Sweden have conceded the least goals so far in the tournament
    England are the only side left not to have kept a clean sheet
    Harry Kane has 6 goals from 6 shots on target
    Sweden’s striker has zero goals from 6 on target
    Sweden’s striker also has more attempts than Kane on goal

    • UnkleTaff 07/07/2018 at 10:49 am

      Makes me laugh that the goal which went in off Kane’s heel is regarded as one of his ‘shots on target’.

    I get the impression we won’t be seeing a swedeheaded Southgate on the front page of the Sun, no matter what the result is. But you never know with those twits.

    • UnkleTaff 07/07/2018 at 10:50 am

      I don’t get the impression he’s taking this game lightly. Far from it, in fact.

      He’s come in for a lot of criticism over the past two years, pretty much all of it unwarranted in my view. I’m really pleased to see him doing so well.

      • foeorfreund 07/07/2018 at 10:52 am

        I’ve changed my view of him completely. Fair play to him, proved he is the man for the job.

        • SpurAndy 🍒 🥧 07/07/2018 at 10:57 am

          Same for me, always thought he was a decent man but he’s now showing he’s got some management ability. Glad I was wrong.

          • 61SpursNut 07/07/2018 at 11:00 am

            He also has a charming self-deprecating manner and realises he’s not quite as beautiful as me.

          • UnkleTaff 07/07/2018 at 11:00 am

            Apparently, even as a player he always felt it was as a coach that he would really make his mark on the game. That’s according to a football writer he wrote a book with about his time at Palace.

        • Sexy Beast 07/07/2018 at 11:00 am

          Where would we be if Big Sam was at the helm??

          • foeorfreund 07/07/2018 at 11:04 am

            Rooney would be captain.

            • Sexy Beast 07/07/2018 at 11:10 am

              He wanted Stephen N’Zonzi to switch to England and play DM!

        • McG ⚽⚽ 07/07/2018 at 11:05 am

          Me too, I love his passion when we score, there’s certainly a steely determination about him!

      • Ronwol1960-61🕎⚽🎷🎥 07/07/2018 at 11:00 am

        Southgate to me has shown great strength of character. When Columbia equalized he looked cool as a cucumber. Seems to have a lot of control and has the respect of the players

      • Ronwol1960-61🕎⚽🎷🎥 07/07/2018 at 11:01 am

        Also I think his football is very Poch and he must have developed it in a short time,his results have been solid compared with so many before him

  • Ronwol1960-61🕎⚽🎷🎥 07/07/2018 at 11:03 am

    Do we all want Croatia to lose? Im not sure because I like Croatia as a team

    • foeorfreund 07/07/2018 at 11:05 am

      Yep, reckon if we get through, Croatia-England would be a great game.

        • foeorfreund 07/07/2018 at 11:10 am

          Don’t think so. I don’t like the idea of a Russia England semi, I’m not gonna get all G’Crack on you, but it just doesn’t sit right with me. It’ll get political.

          • Ronwol1960-61🕎⚽🎷🎥 07/07/2018 at 11:11 am

            But we are balanced on the left and right and have a good defence

                  • foeorfreund 07/07/2018 at 11:17 am

                    I don’t think so either, I just can’t see politicians on either side missing such a chance, being the wankers that they are. It should be about the football, the players, the manager.

                    • foeorfreund 07/07/2018 at 11:18 am

                      And the media, of course. Some sections will turn it into more than a game of football.

      I don’t care who we beat on the way to the trophy.

      • UnkleTaff 07/07/2018 at 11:10 am

        Indeed. Just focus on beating Sweden. After that it’s a case of who wants it more on the day.

  • Caspurs 07/07/2018 at 11:06 am

    Please Zaha, sign the contract Palace have offered..

    • foeorfreund 07/07/2018 at 11:08 am

      It’s just shite paper talk I’d imagine.

      “I have no plans on leaving. I’m enjoying my football, you can see how much I’m enjoying it,”
      “This is my home and there’s no reason for me to leave.”

      That’s what he said in May.

      • Ronwol1960-61🕎⚽🎷🎥 07/07/2018 at 11:09 am

        …but of he heard we were really interested how could he refuse

        The World Cup has done a lot for us I think. All players will be looking at us

        • foeorfreund 07/07/2018 at 11:11 am

          He’s known about our supposed interest for a few years now, but still signed a new 5 year deal last year.
          And I don’t think he’s any better than what we already have.

          • Ronwol1960-61🕎⚽🎷🎥 07/07/2018 at 11:13 am

            In general we dont need him but look he could take the place of Sissoko..I guess 🙂

            • foeorfreund 07/07/2018 at 11:15 am

              And he’s already on 120k per week, no doubt he’d want more if he came to us, maybe even the 200k that Palace are supposedly offering him. No ta.

              • Ronwol1960-61🕎⚽🎷🎥 07/07/2018 at 11:17 am

                OK I give up,I dont really care

                • foeorfreund 07/07/2018 at 11:20 am

                  Yerp.
                  I’ve got a list, Ron, but I’m not sure that any will be all that easy.
                  N’Dombele, Dacoure, Rabiot, Kovacic, Modric.

                  • Ronwol1960-61🕎⚽🎷🎥 07/07/2018 at 11:23 am

                    Its really the next big move when Levy is ready. Its essential and there are too few. So he may have to pay the price

                    • foeorfreund 07/07/2018 at 11:25 am

                      If only it were just about paying the price.

                    • Ronwol1960-61🕎⚽🎷🎥 07/07/2018 at 11:27 am

                      No on the other score our status is growing daily really. Stadium,Kane,World Cup, Prospects for the future,London.

                    • foeorfreund 07/07/2018 at 11:31 am

                      N’Dombele’s agent spoke about our offer with disdain.
                      Dacoure has come out and shouted “I love Liverpool” from the rooftops.
                      Rabiot and Kovacic would probably be wanted by much bigger clubs than us, that’s if the massive clubs they are already with would let them leave.
                      Modric no like chicken badge.

                    • Ronwol1960-61🕎⚽🎷🎥 07/07/2018 at 11:34 am

                      I do think we are growing, We are not the team of Modrics time at all

              • Caspurs 07/07/2018 at 11:18 am

                Have they offered him 200k? I hadn’t heard that, not that I’ve been looking.

                • UnkleTaff 07/07/2018 at 11:19 am

                  I thought it was £120k. Or is that the amount he’s currently (supposedly) on?

                  • foeorfreund 07/07/2018 at 11:21 am

                    That’s what he is supposedly on now.

                    • UnkleTaff 07/07/2018 at 11:28 am

                      I’d happily see him join us but not at anything like £200k a week.

          • UnkleTaff 07/07/2018 at 11:14 am

            So long as we sign Jack Grealish I don’t really care who else comes in.

            • Caspurs 07/07/2018 at 11:16 am

              Really? You clearly think a lot of him then.

          • Caspurs 07/07/2018 at 11:15 am

            I agree, he’s a box of tricks with little end product. I doubt we’d pay the supposed fee anyway, and yes i’ve no doubt it’s just dullard paper talk, just bored of being linked with sub standard merchandise like Zaha.

            • Ronwol1960-61🕎⚽🎷🎥 07/07/2018 at 11:16 am

              I actually like him Cas

              • UnkleTaff 07/07/2018 at 11:18 am

                Me too. He’s strong and pacy. And Palace would most probably have been relegated last year without him.

                    Ferguson thought enough of him to take him to Utd. And he wasn’t a bad judge of a football player.

                    • Ronwol1960-61🕎⚽🎷🎥 07/07/2018 at 11:21 am

                      Ferguson I hated but though he was the best manager ever

                    • Caspurs 07/07/2018 at 11:24 am

                      Never played him (why), and then let him go (why). I think the answer is in there somewhere.

                    • UnkleTaff 07/07/2018 at 11:27 am

                      Ferguson never played him because part of the deal was to send him back to Palace on loan for the rest of that season.

                      Ferguson retired before Zaha actually joined Utd and it was Moyes who subsequently binned him.

                • Ronwol1960-61🕎⚽🎷🎥 07/07/2018 at 11:20 am

                  By the way you may not have been wrong with Hazard yesterday.I just felt that maybe his best work was in MF and didnt threaten the goal much

                  • UnkleTaff 07/07/2018 at 11:23 am

                    I thought he provided an invaluable outlet when Belgium came under the cosh in the second half. He’d pick up the ball, run at the Brazilian defence and, when the inevitable foul came, it gave his team precious breathing space. Lukaku and De Bruyne were largely passengers for the second period I thought.

                    • Ronwol1960-61🕎⚽🎷🎥 07/07/2018 at 11:29 am

                      I totally disasgree it was Lukaku and DeBruyne who won the game. they provided the quickness on the counter

                    • UnkleTaff 07/07/2018 at 11:29 am

                      Not in the second half they didn’t. They both looked spent to me.

                    • Ronwol1960-61🕎⚽🎷🎥 07/07/2018 at 11:30 am

                      Lukaku was absolutely phenomonal. His power,speed and also ball control was amazing.I was shocked

                    • Ronwol1960-61🕎⚽🎷🎥 07/07/2018 at 11:30 am

                      You are dead wrong there

                • Caspurs 07/07/2018 at 11:21 am

                  He’s poor at finishing, poor at seeing the right pass at the right time (for assists), so I’m not overly impressed by him.

                  • Ronwol1960-61🕎⚽🎷🎥 07/07/2018 at 11:22 am

      Our team is what no net spend. We have more players than any other team I think still in the world cup

    • Ronwol1960-61🕎⚽🎷🎥 07/07/2018 at 12:23 pm

    In all seriousness, what would it really mean, to the UK, if England were to win the whole thing?

    We’re already in the process of saving Europe for a third time so I s’pect we’ll retake the colonies first.

    So my boss has just said I can go home at half time.
    It takes me approximately 16-18 minutes to get home.
    Should I risk missing a few minutes, or break on through at work? But if there’s extra time and pens, I’ll be at work till late.
    Conundrum.

    • Ronwol1960-61🕎⚽🎷🎥 07/07/2018 at 12:35 pm

          • UnkleTaff 07/07/2018 at 1:03 pm

            The first one had an excellent director. This is the film he made just before Sicario and is well worth a look:

        • foeorfreund 07/07/2018 at 1:13 pm

          Once you get into it, it’s not really a horror. The zombies are secondary to the characters.

                • SpurAndy 🍒 🥧 07/07/2018 at 1:22 pm

                  I think he’s a character I’d ultimately tire of but still thought he brought an air of great malevolence in the series.

                  • Fatty B 07/07/2018 at 1:25 pm

                    I don’t think JDM is a great actor. As to the character he plays: I’d’ve fetched him a sharp chop to the bracket.

                    • UnkleTaff 07/07/2018 at 1:34 pm

                      He does ham it up a bit, for sure, but the closing scene to series six was one of the most gut-wrenchingly tense things I’ve ever seen on television.

                    • Fatty B 07/07/2018 at 1:43 pm

                      I’m afraid it’s his haminess that spoils it for me. I just don’t find him scary.

    Acting Aston Villa CEO Tony Xia has admitted the Championship club must ‘player trade’ this summer in order to meet Financial Fair Play restrictions.

    • UnkleTaff 07/07/2018 at 1:31 pm

      Villa fans have been very magnanimous about the prospect of him joining us. They’re all gutted to see him go but recognise that a talent such as his needs a bigger stage to shine on and from what I can gather we are the club they’d most like to see him go to.

    The upside to an England loss today is that the repugnant Rebekah Vardy will sod off, too.

    • UnkleTaff 07/07/2018 at 1:36 pm

      I wouldn’t be able to pick her out from a line up.

      So I guess I should consider myself fortunate for that?

      • Fatty B 07/07/2018 at 1:41 pm

        Yes. I ain’t saying she’s a gold digga but she ain’t hanging with no broke n****.

  • UnkleTaff 07/07/2018 at 1:38 pm

    Apparently Henderson, Lingard, Loftus-Cheek and Walker are a booking away from missing a potential semi-final for England.

    The only two I’d really be concerned about there would be Henderson and Lingard.

    • Ronwol1960-61🕎⚽🎷🎥 07/07/2018 at 1:40 pm

      Maybe we will rest them all in the first half
      after this game its all clear isnt it?

  • foeorfreund 07/07/2018 at 1:41 pm
