A blog dedicated to aficionados of the chicken badge of Tottenham Hotspur FC, unashamedly revelling in the agony and ecstasy of every moment of every game....no matter who finds themselves fortunate enough, in any given season, to be the stewards, manager or players of the best club in the world. COYFS!

    Seems like my comments are posting now. Yay! Haven’t been on here for a while but have been pretty impressed with the team given how so many of them got to the semis of the WC and how Levy didn’t spend a penny and how we’re like The Travelling Wilburies of the Premier League.

    Poch has definitely earned his crust in my mind. His transformation of Sissoko into a fast-moving tank is quite something, as is his freeing of Moura and his bringing on of Winks, Gazzaniga, Lamela to name a few. ‘He’s magic, you know…’

    Hope you’re all more than well.

    • HD 🇺🇸 27/11/2018 at 1:02 pm

      Quite nice to see you Spursy. 👁

      • Spursy 27/11/2018 at 1:21 pm

        And you, HD!

    • Shelfy 27/11/2018 at 1:08 pm

      Soon we are going to change the meaning of Spursy. It’s going to mean fast, powerful, skillful dominant, winning football.

      • Chauvelin 27/11/2018 at 1:12 pm


        Definition: relentless, overpowering, ruthless, all conquering.

        • Chauvelin 27/11/2018 at 1:15 pm

          So Spursy…

          • Shelfy 27/11/2018 at 1:17 pm

            That’s what happens if you park in my spot

        • Shelfy 27/11/2018 at 1:16 pm

          Yes and with a bit of Argentine edgy ‘naughtyness’ thrown in for good measure

      • Spursy 27/11/2018 at 1:21 pm

        Exactly! A transformation is happening!

  • Merrance 27/11/2018 at 12:23 pm

    Quilp has got appeaser May off to a tee

    • Chauvelin 27/11/2018 at 12:32 pm

      If Mrs May had set off 2 years ago with the intention of deliberating screwing up Brexit, this is where we’d be today. Firstly David Davies (and his team of civil servants) suddenly find her presenting her own secret plan at Chequers last July, concocted behind his back. Then Dominic Raab resigns over the Withdrawal Agreement, which he obviously did not have any hand in negotiating. All the way through May has been acting in the shadows.

      • foeorfreund 27/11/2018 at 1:13 pm

        I refer you back to my bartender argument from the weekend.
        “Coke Zero with Lemon please”.
        “There you go”.
        “That’s lime, I asked for lemon”.
        “Did you?”
        “Yes, quite specifically”.
        “Well I’m sorry, but we don’t have any lemons”.
        “But your colleague said lemons are available?”
        “We don’t have any lemons”.
        “But I was told you do?”
        “We don’t. You can have lime, or no fruit at all”.
        “But I want lemon”.
        “You shouldn’t have been told that lemons are available, they are not. Why don’t you have lime instead? It’s similar to lemon”.
        “Because I want lemon”.
        “But we don’t have lemon”.
        “This bar is shit”.
        “Well you walked in, mate”.

        • Chauvelin 27/11/2018 at 1:19 pm

          This situation is this: you’re arguing about lemons whilst Mrs May has agreed that your drink will have lime and taken it to your table.

          • SpurAndy 🥧🍒 27/11/2018 at 1:22 pm

            Difficult, difficult, lemon difficult.

          • foeorfreund 27/11/2018 at 1:28 pm

            Exactly. David Davies was the guy they sent to the greengrocer with strict instructions to buy lemons. There weren’t any. He didn’t buy the limes that the greengrocers had, because he was told to buy lemons. May is the bar manager, without fruit no one will buy drinks. She got the limes, because that was the only fruit available, even though the customers won’t be happy, they wanted lemons (which were promised to them by the previous manager).

            • foeorfreund 27/11/2018 at 1:31 pm

              And make no mistake, without fruit, no one will drink at the bar.

              • Chauvelin 27/11/2018 at 1:42 pm

                That’s fine. We leave without tipping them the 39 billion pounds on the way out…

                • foeorfreund 27/11/2018 at 1:49 pm

                  Result! We’ve saved 39bil!!! But what about the staff that will lose their jobs when the bar closes? What about the money owed to suppliers that will now not be paid? And those suppliers don’t have any other bars to sell to, so now they have to close too? That’s just fine, we saved having to tip!!

                  • Chauvelin 27/11/2018 at 1:58 pm

                    Hard bargaining. Something May wasn’t capable of.

                    • Chauvelin 27/11/2018 at 1:59 pm

                      Be gentle with me, Monsieur Barnier.

                    • foeorfreund 27/11/2018 at 2:06 pm

                      That fits perfectly, doesn’t it. We could get exactly what we want with hard bargaining, they’d give up on their positions because we’re Great Britain, and we don’t take no for an answer.

    Hi Andy! Yes, it said something about moderation and didn’t show up. Maybe I didn’t complete it right as this one has posted. Ne’er mind. Hope you’re doing well. I’d love to go along to the Barca meet up but my son will want me here. He’s not old enough for a pub yet. Got a couple of years for that. We are thinking of going to some of the next games, like Southampton. Do you go to Wembley at all?

    Glad to see the posting is sorted, hopefully for good. Understand about the meet up but hope you can at least make the next Ron, HD et al invasion next year. Haven’t been to Wembley this season as tbh it’s such a pfaff to get to and back. I’m not really a great attender these days as I’m getting soft in my old age and prefer the comfort of watching it in the warmth of my own home. Anyhoo, good to see you on here and would love to hear how your next match visit goes.

    • Spursy 27/11/2018 at 1:24 pm

      We haven’t been to many games but our lad really wants to go. It going to be freezing! Thermals required. I will definitely report in. Hey, are you still baking? I made some biscuits the other week and they were pretty nice. I was surprised.

      • SpurAndy 🥧🍒 27/11/2018 at 1:29 pm

        Looks like the modding is still a prob, ive emailed the other admins to see if they’ve got any answers.
        Yep, usually bake every weekend. Made billionaires shortbread (cheated and bought the caramel) and choc cake with choc butter cream icing last weekend. My daughter has now got the bug so she takes it in turns with me. She prefers the look over the taste of it as opposed to me who puts the taste as first priority.

        • Chauvelin 27/11/2018 at 1:39 pm

          Billionaire’s shortcake? Progress I suppose.

          • Chauvelin 27/11/2018 at 1:40 pm

            *Shortbread. (What’s the difference? Please do tell.)

            • SpurAndy 🥧🍒 27/11/2018 at 1:42 pm

              I had to Google it as I was not sure myself:

              Shortbread is actually a firm dry cookie that contains a lot of butter- it is not unlike a spritz cookie. Shortcake is breadier – more like a biscuit /scone. It is crusty on the outside but soft and fluffy on the inside. Shortcake is usually not as sweet as shortbread.

              • Chauvelin 27/11/2018 at 1:46 pm

                So the shortcake is more like bread, than shortbread.


  • Chauvelin 27/11/2018 at 1:47 pm

    Err… The pitch can also be used to re-enact trench warfare.

    • Shelfy 27/11/2018 at 1:52 pm

      It’s a new defensive strategy. If we are one up with five to go then a trench opens to keep the opposition away from our goal.

      • Chauvelin 27/11/2018 at 1:57 pm

        Tee hee! That free kick from just outside the our area is now 50 yards from goal.

  • Merrance 27/11/2018 at 2:45 pm

    No wonder our US cuzzins call us limeys

    Who is going to be the first to wish Sol Campbell good luck in his managerial career with Macclesfield?….. anyone?

    • Hartley 27/11/2018 at 3:14 pm

      I would but I think he’s a twat

      • Shelfy 27/11/2018 at 3:17 pm

        That’s an insult to twats the world over.

    • 89Spurs 👁 27/11/2018 at 3:17 pm

      He’s also been involved with an England team, not sure if it was the Full team or the Under 21’s
      But your right, Harts he is a twat.

    • Chauvelin 27/11/2018 at 3:49 pm

      I wish good luck to the poor fans of Macclesfield FC.

      At the first opportunity their manager will be off to a neighbouring club…

    • Sexy Beast 27/11/2018 at 5:08 pm

      Ten games and he’ll be gone, judas mug.

      Sol Campbell deserves more than Macclesfield Town, says Paul Ince.
      This makes me angry. Why does he deserve more? How has he proved himself as a manager or a coach?

  • Chauvelin 27/11/2018 at 5:39 pm

    Mike Dean has been appointed referee for the NLD.

    I’m absolutely sure Mike will be even handed, but the perception will be prejudiced by previous nonsense that he is a closet lilywhite. This despite last season giving the Gooners some very marginal decisions.

    The FA must be run by very dim people indeed.

    • Shelfy 27/11/2018 at 6:46 pm

      The gooners are already getting their excuses lined up. They have a very long journey on Thursday and the ref for the weekend is a Spurs fan. What next?

    • Superspoz 🏆 27/11/2018 at 8:09 pm

      “…if the erstwhile Saturday night quiz show Family Fortunes had surveyed 100 people to fill in the blank in the sentence: “Sol Campbell is one of the greatest [BLANKS] in football”, the word “minds” would scarcely have featured among the few broadcastable answers, let alone those all-important top ones.”
