The THST (Tottenham Hotspur Supporter’s Trust) took time-wasting to olympian levels long before this week. For those of you joining us late, this shower of pompous, pedantic automatons who can’t speak properly and look odder in real life than even me are the self proclaimed ‘dialogue’ between us plebs and the Spurs Board.

Let’s get some textbook defence mechanism type tripe out of the way, shall we?

Accusation #1: ‘It’s easy to throw stones!’

Answer #1: At useless people, it’s not only a doddle, it’s also extremely well earned. 

Accusation #2: ‘If you want change, let’s see you join up?!’

Answer #2: I’d rather nail my penis to a burning building whilst joining the Conservative Party. 

Accusation #3: We work incredibly hard and don’t get paid!’

Answer #3: You gigantic schmucks!

The recent season ticket debacle has shone a new, extra beamy spotlight on the Trust’s inadequacies. First of all, they watched this coming like a slow train for not just months but years. So it hits. The comet that even the telescopes that came free sellotaped to the front of the Beano were able to watch this bad boy hurtling towards the fanbase.

Did anyone really think that the people that brought you The Great Loyalty Points Swindle Of 2006™ were going to do anything other than stamp their capitalist jackboot into your face as they stole your dinner money, the moment a clear cut opportunity arose?

Oh no. The sum of all fears! One gang of serial bozos – that charge fans a tenner to subscribe to their particularly twisted type of bozo-icity – actually did.

You can read how the whole ‘representation charade’ panned out here.

To save you clicking, imagine an outraged person phoning a premium rate customer complaint hotline and after 50minutes of exasperating nonsense, being finally directed to the person most able to assist with the specific nature of the complaint… canned laughter is blasted down the line.

What I find frankly hilarious and enthralling in equal measure is this closing paragraph:

“We remain committed to a full dialogue with the Club as soon as it is ready to properly address supporter concerns. In the meantime, we will be considering other methods of encouraging change.”

Meaningful change could only result in the THST disbanding. They are utterly defunct.

Some time ago, I made it very clear to the Trust and anyone else that was interested, that negotiating required some genuine mental strength. Something that not one individual on the Trust’s board has ever demonstrated.

In the softly spoken words of the Commander In Chief, ‘the worst thing you can possibly do in a deal is seem desperate to make it. That makes the other guy smell blood, and then you’re dead.’ These clowns were dead and buried the very first time they compromised themselves and of this there were/are so many examples.

Blowing kisses at the Spurs Official Twitter account, latching onto ‘the biscuits’ joke, repeatedly taking information that little to zero worth in the public domain and accepting these tidbits as confidences not to be shared under any circumstances with you, the plebs. Worse yet – telling the plebs you had an inside track.

The THST played very commercial sensitivity card played on them – on you. And you pass them to do it!

They compromised themselves. Do you understand?

Don’t tell yourself ,’it was only only a tenner’. Tell yourself this: In most cases I’m very easy to get along with. I’m very good to people who are good to me. But when people treat me badly or unfairly or try to take advantage of me, my general attitude, all my life, has been to fight back very hard.

Does that sound unreasonable? Put it another way. Does it sound any more unreasonable than facing anywhere between £200-to £800 per season price hikes, despite the investment company having a world record breaking number of Client Reference Numbers to exploit?

Instead, this ‘Trust’ has condescended – way after the ENIC horse has not only bolted, but demolished the Spurs stable – to share an online petition it didn’t even have the balls to start!

“We also note there is an online petition running to give fans an opportunity to register their views.”

Say goodnight Gracie.

    I’m glad I have a TV subscription to watch Spurs. the prices that I have seen bandied about are just Ludicrous

  • BERNARD March 17, 2018 at 2:41 pm

    thats the best game Sissoko has played ever for spurs

  • PlayitagainSamways March 17, 2018 at 1:09 pm

    Nice finish from Lamela.

    Eriksen has been the creator of any quality we have shown today.

    Very leisurely game. Sonny needs to work on his decision making if he is going to lead the line.

    Moura needs to perk up a bit. He looks like he has been smoking the hashish.

    I would like some hashish on a day like today.

    Breel Embolo of Schalke 04 is Breel Donald Embolo, we could well have “Donald ” playing up front next season, grabbing all the goals of brexit-loving (such as trump and putin) fans out there.

    Weather’s pretty blustery down here at the moment and it’s been threatening to snow all morning. Maybe we’ll get a flurry or two during the game.

    No sign of any rain though.

    Yet.

    To be fair, they’ve sent a sternly worded email to the club asking them to reconsider their prices. That’s got to work hasn’t it.

  • IrishSpurs March 17, 2018 at 10:24 am

    Because i live in n ireland i cant justify buying a season ticket althou in the bar i drink in there are 3 season ticket holders for utd – i go to at least 4 games a season but i bring my wife and just recently my twins for the everton game – tickets, flights, hotel £1000 and thats before any food and drink – if we win today wud love to go to the semis but probably wont get tickets – its not easy being a fan over here 😣

    BEHAVE YOURSELF DONALD!!
    The BBC reports that Lawyers for US President Donald Trump are seeking $20 million (£14m) in damages from a porn actress he says broke a non-disclosure deal signed before the 2016 elections.. They argue Stormy Daniels breached the agreement at least 20 times. The actress claims she had an affair with Mr Trump that began in 2006 and lasted several months.

    Incidentally an enjoyable day was had by myself, Joyce and Poxy at the packed Gold Cup won by Richard Johnson’s Native River running smoothly throughout beating the favourite in the run in.

            But if she took the money,there’s an agreement?

            • David Dillenberg March 17, 2018 at 9:48 am

              According to a source not all experts agree Stormy Andres is in a tough spot. Brian Wagner, a criminal defense attorney and former prosecutor in Brooklyn, New York, said the suit presents the possibility that Trump would eventually have to assert in court that he was the intended beneficiary of the agreement, and why.That puts him in a precarious political situation because he’d have to either own up to it and say ‘this was me’ or deny it,” Wagner said in a phone call. “He can’t have it both ways.”

              • 💋 March 17, 2018 at 10:02 am

                I should imagine Trump having to admit he had exercised his legal (if highly unpleasent) right to have sex with a hooker, whom he entered into a (legally binding) non disclosure contract with, is the least of his problems.

                In fact, I’d suggest that Stormzy’s attempt to capitalise on Trump’s current status and her flagrant breach of their contract will backfire on her.

                • Ronwol1960-61 March 17, 2018 at 10:05 am

                    I don’t mean anything other than what I typed.

                    Trump committed adultery with a hooker and sought to conceal the relationship behind an nda. Qustionable, pernaps, but not illegal.p

                    The hooker takes the dough (happily, one assumes. Up the jacksie? who knows?)) then Trump is elected POTUS … kerching!

                    A few wealthy, public spirited, well meaning individuals outraged at the awful treatment of the hooker begin to campaign for JUSTICE, YEAH!

                    You couldn’t make it up. Oh wait! Someone just did!

                      You can’t impeach a man for being a serial schmuck, even if your key evidence is a picture of pair of pneumatic tits.

            • 💋 March 17, 2018 at 9:49 am

              Nice question, Nick. I’d say yes.

              A contract doesn’t need to written (and therefore, signed) for it to be legally binding.

              However, there are other formalities which must be satisfied in order for the agreement to be binding, the most significant (in this case) is the exchange of ‘consideration’ IE, his money for her promise.

              I’d suggest that Trump has the law on his side at the moment but that she has a very great number of very wealthy Trump haters on her side.

                  Hasn’t she already said that it was hush money paid to her after she had a sexual relationship with him?

                  • AntSpurs March 17, 2018 at 10:21 am

                    This is the thing Spurts, who knows. Do you think they had an affair or is it more likely that he was paying for it? With nothing signed she can say what she likes.

                    • 💋 March 17, 2018 at 10:35 am

                      That’s what the court’s are for, homes.

                      I suspect the status of their relationship is secondary to the nature of the payments.

                      She’s a pawn in this dispute and will come out of it badly, I suspect.

              • 💋 March 17, 2018 at 10:13 am

  • Real Fan? March 17, 2018 at 8:38 am

    His point about fleeting success is valid BUT progress or “process”, as he calls it in this interview also becomes irrelevant if it has nothing to show for it. Poch has to be intelligent enough to realise that he needs to win silverware to demonstrate that Spurs are really headed somewhere under his management.

    More importantly, he needs to give the fans something to proudly point to after all these years, and after the way we went out against Juve, and due to the fact that we’re not going to win the league. His reign doesn’t exist in a bubble. This is really the only show in town this season.

    • SpurAndy 🍒π March 17, 2018 at 8:54 am

      I’ll be very surprised if Poch doesn’t put out a strong side today. He knows he needs to win silverware just as much as we do, despite whatever uttering he makes to the press. Any manager of a top 6 team (I include us in that number) will see that as a defining measure and the lack of it will effect his job security. A manager outside the top 6 will mainly have maintaining PL presence as his number one over riding priority. A cup would add some glamour but not massively effect their position, Raniery is an example of that.

      • Real Fan? March 17, 2018 at 9:28 am

        Problem is though, Andy, that I think Poch’s position is 100% secure without winning either the FA Cup or League Cup. I agree with those that say Levy would be happy enough with CL qualification not to sack Poch if he didn’t win something for several more years. There’s no doubt that the bottom line is his bigger priority, in my view.

        • Harry Hotspur March 17, 2018 at 9:32 am

          Poch is unimpeachable because Levy wants a top four finish forever

        • SpurAndy 🍒π March 17, 2018 at 9:36 am

          Yep agree that he’s certainly safe for the next couple of years. Not so sure after that as I think he’ll want to walk if he hasn’t won anything whether Levy yet wants him to or not. Poch seems to me to be a proud man with strong beliefs and a winning mentality. He won’t just want to pick up the cheque for ever.

    • East Stand March 17, 2018 at 9:19 am

      Under ENIC we have had loads of managers and we have won ONE League Cup in that 16 years. Ramos was the manager at the time, Juande who?

      The fact is Poch is 100% right because during that 16 years Spurs have also failed to qualify for the Champions League apart from during Poch’s tenure, and briefly under Redknapp.

      For us to be in the Champions League was the distant dream, the absolute impossible back in 2008 when Woodgate scored against Chavski.

      We want our cake and eat it, I get that and it’s what fans do. However being a regular Champions League side is a MASSIVE leap forward for the club.

      We need to maintain that in order to avoid slipping back into quietly accepting a domestic cup every decade and a half.

      People who say they’d rather finish outside the top 4 and win a cup are entitled to their opinion.

      However when the cup final hangover has worn off and you’re watching us play in Kazakhstan on a Thursday evening you might wonder if it was worth the trade off.

      Fine, if we can qualify for the CL and win the cup then happy days. But for me Poch is under zero pressure to win anything and our progress is in our league placing.

      7th highest net spend Bald weirdo won’t be putting pressure on for the cup either. He knows he’s fucking lucky to be getting the league position from that paltry expenditure.

      Nice to win the cup but top four again is evolution, a cup without top four is a backwards slip…

      • David Dillenberg March 17, 2018 at 9:24 am

          Well that’s a different scenario, in our Wembley season I thought they would. We are well placed, play the cup games but focus on the league, no margin for error…

    • East Stand March 17, 2018 at 9:24 am

      He has got something to show for it RF, regular Champions League qualification.

      How can a cup a be a better as something to show for it? Why?

      • Real Fan? March 17, 2018 at 9:29 am

        Don’t misunderstand me, I value CL qualification highly as a measure of progress…but I also believe it can’t be seen as a destination.

    • Harry Hotspur March 17, 2018 at 9:35 am

      There is no such thing as fleeting success – you can’t win em all – all the time.

      The piety of Poch is appalling.

      ‘Enjoy the Cheese Room and name your children after me, I gave you that room’.

  • caveman March 17, 2018 at 8:32 am

    I’m worried that Poch will throw the FA Cup towel in today. If he does, I’m finished with him.

    • Real Fan? March 17, 2018 at 8:40 am

      Why would he do that, Cavey? No logical reason.

    i believe the alternative name for representative is stupid mug and these do not represent us the supporters. At the last home last year Levy said he was a custodian of the club, but he is getting it ready for an investor not a supporter of our club. Hence investors will always take away from a club. There are only two clubs in England where foreign ownership has meant large investments so we are supposed to feel lucky.
    At wembley we have had some supporters previously unable to come to the lane due to lack of available tickets but will not come to the new ground due to costs.

    The bed THFC supporters are asked to bed wet was made long ago. It was there in a glossy PR so this is no surprise. Or at least shouldn’t be a surprise.
