If we’re going to throw these domestic competitions then there needs to be better planning. I’d suggest all seats being priced at fiver with 500 loyalty points and the entire team being comprised of players from the very bowels of the academy.

Upon reflection, it was only the utter gormlessness of West Ham that allowed us to go 2-0 up. Despite being rubbish, once they did join in they scored three times in a comparatively short space of time and on balance looked far more likely to score a fourth.

As has been wheeled out by me on too many previous occasions, the moment one starts significantly tinkering with our best XI we’re not very good.

Pochettino has been a man of his word in respect of prioritising the league and the Champions League, with substitutions (the addition of better players) only occurring from the 72nd minute onwards.

In depth analysis is probably futile but Son’s passing was particularly appalling and Foyth is another lost child to add to the list that Tom Carroll used to be top off.

No’Cludeo came on to make an immediate bungle and then not to touch the ball a second time. Did we actually  sign him or did he win a competition?

In summation, a complete waste of everybody’s time and effort.

    99% of Poch’s substitutions are on the 70 min mark however good or bad we are playing….

    West Ham deserved that. Well done. Next

    Taking a philosophical approach to this “freakish defeat” perfectly illustrates the fans emotions of highs and lows of the great game we love so much.

    No matter. We’re going for the league and champions league this season. That’s what the manager said, even though the early season “insider” info declared the chairman and manager think that taking into consideration the Wembley factor, the League and champions league are not a possibility. So, no conflict so far. Here’s a suggestion….. Seeing that the latter is actually true, why not go all out to win a cup and take the momentum of victory and silverware into the new era……? Get the winning mentality in gear and maybe the windfall will follow? Surely better than lieing about unobtainable goals and fucking off the things that are actually possible. Poch KNOWS we ain’t finishing above the Manchester clubs this season. So does Levy. So do i. If some fans disagree and believe the squad we have coupled with our situation will see us finish above both of those clubs, im sorry, i cant help you. Maybe we should lay some foundations in the minds of this burgeoning side, instead of just humiliating all concerned.

      Nobidy thinks anything they are just trying to win a game when it shows up and managing the plauers work loads.Its called managing.thays what it is.Tottenham can win the league and this game had nothing tovdo with it.Infact they obviously thought a half arsed effort would do the trick.
      But it dorsnt matter.its a shit cup and if you ask most fans they would say it woild have been nice to win it but whats more important is ramifacations on tbe next games

        Well your both happy and confident we can win the league. So this trophy is a unwanted distraction. Roll on may and that title!

    • ronwol196061🇨🇦 October 25, 2017 at 10:42 pm

      Accrington it doesnt matter whoever we put out there should have made an effort…
      From what I saw the second half we were on a beach kick about with half efforts
      You get what you deserve

  • Chi Y-Word October 25, 2017 at 10:34 pm

    Glad we threw it away… only want the big cups… concentrate on the league… was only our reserves… blah blah blah… other generic “big club” excuses…

    It’s a shame, we could have been on for the quadruple. Will have to settle for the treble instead.

    All will be forgiven when we smash Utd 1-0.

  • Camus October 25, 2017 at 10:21 pm

    What the fook happened there then?
    Did we go 2-0 up by accident?
    I know Poch doesn’t care for this competition but it rankles that it’s a game vs West Ham that we throw. We’ve just made their season FFS…! 😡

  • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? October 25, 2017 at 10:18 pm

    Our pitiful lack of a home/squad has worked out rather well. The highlights clash with film I want to view, so that’s solved that dilemma. Lovely take tonight Mr Levy. Isn’t it about time you had a raise?

    • ronwol196061🇨🇦 October 25, 2017 at 10:44 pm

      Fuck off. You are a real schmuck.
      If I was Levy I eould want to know from Poch why the players we have dont make the effort they did

      • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? October 25, 2017 at 11:05 pm

        Can you stop telling me to fuck off.

        • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? October 25, 2017 at 11:30 pm

          I wasn’t playing tonight…

        • ronwol196061🇨🇦 October 25, 2017 at 11:41 pm

          Look I cant tell you what to write but this bullshit about Levy is ridiculous. Was there one fucking word for Levy in the past fee games…No….but Poch gets it wrong in this one,the players get it wrong in tbis one and Levy is too blame @tired of this ludicrous demonizing of Levy

          • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? October 26, 2017 at 12:04 am

            Poch works with what he’s been given. By the chairman.

            • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? October 26, 2017 at 12:12 am

              I wasn’t really talking about Levy in context of performance, more the ongoing plundering of peoples money.

    PS Is Dier all that?

    No and he hasnt been all that for a long time.

  • Willy juice October 25, 2017 at 10:13 pm

    Leaving Kane on that long v lolpool was ridiculous. Left son on too long tonight and Toby. Play some young fellas. Bringing eriksen on was risky too. This match on Saturday is huge

    • ronwol196061🇨🇦 October 25, 2017 at 10:19 pm

      If they cant fucking hold a lead against that shit they dont deserve Kane

        Not really. They didn’t extend themselves at all.

  • Lilywhite without the ll October 25, 2017 at 10:08 pm

    Can we stop teams playing at our home ground for cup finals…..send them out training before kick off…

  • Jimbo THFC October 25, 2017 at 10:03 pm

    Tossers. The lot of them. 2 nil up. London Derby vs West Ham. Joke.

  • AccringtonSpurs October 25, 2017 at 10:02 pm

    Some think Llorente was a good buy. I remain to be convinced. He’s not awful, just undynamic. Few passes went astray from him as much as his ‘flick’ was good.

    • MysteriousStranger October 25, 2017 at 10:09 pm

      According to ESPN he’s managed the grand total of two shots in a Spurs shirt so far. Neither on target. None tonight. I called him the Spanish Peter Crouch before he joined us. I think I prefer Crouch.

    • Willy juice October 25, 2017 at 10:14 pm

      He’s a big handsome pile of shit

  • Mad Carew October 25, 2017 at 10:01 pm
