Tottenham Hotspur

A Polished Turd

A Polished Turd

To roll out the hackneyed question, ‘would you have taken 2-0 before a ball was kicked?’ the answer is an emphatic yes.

I’m unconvinced that Pochettino’s faith in our youngsters, and the resulting win was much more than blind luck.

With a 6 day break ahead of us, what genuine benefit was it to drown Winks and Janssen in a game like this is beyond me.

Harry Kane struggles to get a decent supply, backed up with our best players in support of him. Christ knows how Vinny was supposed to fare this afternoon.

I take no pleasure in suggesting that Janssen is almost certainly done at Spurs now. He looks broken. Broken beyond repair.

Spurs are thought to the 4th round of the FA Cup.

How awfully exciting.

  • Aside from cerebrospinal fluid, what's on your mind?

    As said above, what chance had Vincent yesterday. We are terrible in the final third. So slow at building up with not much width and barely create real scoring chances with our full starting line up. I do believe Vinny has something to offer but yesterday he gave the ball away too much. I have noticed lately that he is actually trying to run in behind instead of getting it with his back to goal.

      At least you’re not questioning my self control…

    • Caspurs♿️ January 8, 2017 at 10:04 pm

      “Bitch site TTID” is it a notorious pornographic den of iniquity?
      Sounds interesting, have you got a link?

  • totspurs75 January 8, 2017 at 8:36 pm

    Blame the establishment you pussy Harry fkin Hotspur …leave the kid alone you birch of a man TTID

    • Caspurs♿️ January 8, 2017 at 10:05 pm

      Ha ha, the boy just got birched!

  • paul January 8, 2017 at 8:27 pm

    Well i’m glad i didn’t leave the sofa for that one but job done and hope we cop an easy 4th round draw. Honourable mention to Plymouth for dragging the bindippers on a 600 mile round trip they definitely won’t need!

    Feels like things are really firming up for me and i hope poch and daniel too: Vinny needs to go, no-one likes the stench of a corpse or the energy drain that 24/7 sympathy brings. Tripps deserves more starts in the league and he needs to start getting them, he’s better than just cover, he’s a weapon, needs to be regularly included, starting with WBA. Davies is cover but no more than. Winks is Mustard, colman’s mild at the mo but getting there slowly and surely, also he seems like an actual decent human being, spoke with tremendous elequence and genuine humility yesterday, a credit to himself, his parents and the club. Voodoo N’koudoo is worth keeping and being drawn further into the fold. Cup starts, whole second halfs in the league, worth exploring to see if he can become what we need. I wouldn’t cry if we didn’t pick up a winger in January, much prefer a top up and coming striker as cover for Harry and hopefully a world class AM at some point. Going to be interesting to see how Coco re-integrates after his hiatus, i get the feeling he’s gutted to have been missing out over the last couple months and as we all know the boy is a tryer so hopefully will be like a new signing when he gets back and up to speed. Son for me is just decent cover now, cup starts and 2nd half sub, we should probably keep and i’m sure Daniel loves the exposure in Asia. Shitsoko can still fuck right off but if we are locked-in to keeping him then same deal as sonny boy. Wimmer is excellent cover, should be made to feel more valued. Vickers is doing ok’ish, a keeper for now. Onomatonomah i would get shot of in January if at all possible and christ can we please just sell Tiny Tom!

    Lastly, if we did have to sell a quality player to raise funds or for any other reason then i think for me the least damaging to let go would be Hugo, it genuinely wouldn’t worry me. Vorm is alright cover given our defence and good keepers are far more available than Strikers or AM’s. Would make it easier to see Tobes rightfully captained too.

    Just some general thoughts, shoot them down as you see fit..

  • totspurs75 January 8, 2017 at 8:09 pm

    You nasty cunts leave the boy jansen alone he is giving his all…take a look out the bigger window you pussies….He is being coached completely wrong…always played in a weakened team…you pathetic shallow minded unhappy cocks

    • paul January 8, 2017 at 8:28 pm

      Are you in any way related to Vincent Janssen?

    • Sticky Willie January 8, 2017 at 10:27 pm

      Who knitted you?

  • Arcane January 8, 2017 at 7:45 pm

    The other 2 are just mouthy backstreet hookers of the TV pundit world, but the lovely Gary and articulate JJ hit the nail softly on the head, because they know the Levy MO, and don’t see him changing it.

    We either step up a level now, while we’re in the top tier or we have our best players taken off us, anddrop back down to the doorstep.

    We’re in an awkward position – untenable for more than another season.

    Which means either buying a top quality AM, and better second striker, asap, or accepting we’re a selling club.

    To be able to push on, bring in that kind of player(s) we DO need to be in the CL. We don’t have the budget to get round that, like Chelsea and Utd have.

    Winning the F.A Mug would not cut it.

    if you’re ambitious for the club, then Poch has got our priorities right.

    If you prefer to eat a little chocolate coin now and pretend the world hasn’t changed that’s fine, but to be honest about it, you have to join H and accept that being a second tier club would be part of the bargain for going all out for the low-hanging fruit domestic cups.

    I’m pleased we’re aiming higher.

  • Totspurs January 8, 2017 at 7:45 pm

    Time for Jansen to go Poch has lost total faith and he doesn’t look like getting with the program. Players didn’t want to pass to him choosing other options. He will never come good it’s not like lamela he should go asap

  • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? January 8, 2017 at 7:41 pm

    Nuvver newy

  • Spursy January 8, 2017 at 7:38 pm

    All the TV coverage feels anti Spurs nowadays. Hoddle can be fair, but all the others are pool or manc or ar*e crazy.

    In the past two weeks, I’ve heard my team vilified and kicked aplenty. Sick of it so don’t listen anymore.

    I don’t feel the players do either. Last season they got too caught up in outside things. The response of the players is very focused. Like that.

  • Camus January 8, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    I bet Shearer thinks Lineker’s a spineless little corporate whore toad, on the sly…

    • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? January 8, 2017 at 7:36 pm

      I was at a game they both scored in…now look at em. Trivia: what was the game??

      • Spursy January 8, 2017 at 7:41 pm

        An England match?

        • Camus January 8, 2017 at 7:52 pm

          Shearer’s debut? 2-0 against France or something?

          • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? January 8, 2017 at 7:56 pm

            Southampton 2 spurs 3. 92 maybe

    • Baz January 8, 2017 at 7:40 pm

      Imagine what Lineker thinks of knuckle head Alan

      • Camus January 8, 2017 at 7:53 pm

        “He, er, doesn’t mince his words, Alan…” (nervous laugh)

        The horrible little Krankie given air time begs belief.

        • Camus January 8, 2017 at 7:28 pm

          Throw her in the Forth. If she floats, burn her.

          • Stevo1987 January 8, 2017 at 7:40 pm

            Burn her first then throw her in.

  • Captain Cluedo January 8, 2017 at 7:20 pm

    Who else thinks WBA game could be a “banana peel” game then? And I’m waiting for the comments! We seem to struggle at home with these guys

    • David Dillenberg January 8, 2017 at 7:24 pm

      +1. Pulis loves being a spoiler. The secret is get out the blocks quickly, score early otherwise it could be another frustrating turgid affair.

  • David Dillenberg January 8, 2017 at 7:19 pm

    I am no psychologist but moitoring Jannsen’s body language says it all!

    • Captain Cluedo January 8, 2017 at 7:21 pm

      Can’t agree more…
      Looks out of his depth

    • Spurstacus 💋 January 8, 2017 at 7:26 pm

      For someone who freely admits they are no psychologist, your body language montoring skills are amazing.

      • Camus January 8, 2017 at 7:32 pm

        It’s like a non-Michelin-starred chef rating his own meal as “Michelin star standard”

  • Spurstacus 💋 January 8, 2017 at 7:17 pm

    I see Nicola Sturgeon has adopted Kim Kardashian’s ‘contouring’ method of makeup application; a move welcomed by me as a good start, and a step in the right direction. More please, Nicola.

    • steviesmozz January 8, 2017 at 7:18 pm

      over do it on the turkey spurts?

      • MysteriousStranger January 8, 2017 at 7:19 pm

        That and the E! Channel.

        Too much is never enough.

        • steviesmozz January 8, 2017 at 7:21 pm

          people always telling me “less is more”

  • Captain Cluedo January 8, 2017 at 7:15 pm

    Wins a win. Get to the crunch rounds and three quarters of tonight’s wont play. On Janssen….not looking good at all. Trying too hard to impress. Needs chill pills badly or I’d say he’s off years end. Not you typical Poch style of player. Either we keep him and loan out or sell outright but I can’t see him in a Spurs shirt next year…

    • McG ⚽⚽ January 8, 2017 at 7:17 pm

      No one’s even seen next years shirt yet!

  • David Dillenberg January 8, 2017 at 7:13 pm

    Surely even a walking paced free agent Berbatov is better than Jannsen?

    • Harry Hotspur January 8, 2017 at 7:14 pm

      Vinny is Vinito.

    • David Dillenberg January 8, 2017 at 7:16 pm

      Why not blood this Harrison kid?

    • Captain Cluedo January 8, 2017 at 7:16 pm

      I’d even take Defoe back as sub striker!

    You certainly aint gonna win things with kids, if you do not play em

    They had to get it in didn’t they??….ooh spurs have some tremendous young players haven’t they?…can they keep hold of them?? Get…….fucked BBC.

    • Harry Hotspur January 8, 2017 at 7:06 pm

      Gary Wanker and his paid friends.

      • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? January 8, 2017 at 7:13 pm

        They had about 30 seconds and still managed to crowbar it in.

        • Harry Hotspur January 8, 2017 at 7:14 pm

          Too predictable.

          • Camus January 8, 2017 at 7:25 pm

            Lineker’s such a c*nt these days.

            • Stevo1987 January 8, 2017 at 7:43 pm

              Yeah, shame. Has to stick his big nose into everything.
