A gradual decline into disorder is what we got alright.

As per this week’s post match tape (due out this afternoon), the reality check is that we’ve lost just one game in fifteen and against the lot that are in all but name Premier League Champions.

So there is little merit in getting too overwrought and hurling all of one’s toys and teddies out of the perambulator.

Pochettino is certainly a good guy, but he’s also a stubborn one. More worrying yet, he doesn’t appear too be that quick on the uptake when it comes to repeating tactical mistakes.

It’s almost as if he looks at things that went wrong not from a ‘I shouldn’t do that again’ perspective, but from a ‘why didn’t that work and how can I make it work next time?’ way.

Commendable outlook for a scientist, naffing painful one for a football manager.

Hugo Time for Vorm. Nothing personal, but the goalkeeping isn’t great and the captaining is non existent.

Davies, Tripper, Aurier etc etc None of you are Walker & Rose therefore every week an effigy of one of you will be lit and hung from a Wembley lamppost in honour of the God Of Daftness. Sanchez? Your turn next week, son.

Where is Toby? We’re all grown ups. If he’s frozen out because he’s leaving, we can take it. What we can’t take is a fab player not playing.

Lamela Was a bit of washout, truth be told. Unlock City? Couldn’t lift a funny fiver out of his mum’s purse.

Ali Was appalling. Diving deadbeat.

Mousa Simmered then went off the boil.

Eriksen There must days when he asks himself what he’s doing with us.

Lucas Made for a curious cameo. Didn’t do anything sensational yet by comparison looked absolutely outstanding. More please.

Son Bumble bore.

Harry Kane Goodness me what a waste of rations.

Sissoko In the softly spoken words of Charlie Brown…

      I’m gonna share with my What’sApp spurs group, to get you a smidge of exposure.

  • Gloster1861 April 15, 2018 at 6:24 pm

    Apparently against City, Michael Carrick gave Yanited the half time rallying talk, not José.

    Spurs better sign up Carrick as a coach.

    • Nick April 15, 2018 at 6:28 pm

      Personally don’t think mourinho has a motivational talk left in him,has looked dour & disinterested all season.He along side Pep & “insert Chelsea current manager here” can only work a team with money,get any of them to manage Swansea,West Brom or Huddersfield & see how special they are

      • Gloster1861 April 15, 2018 at 6:32 pm

        I’ve said often enough, the likes of Pep and Conte have proved nothing. All the money in the world.

        IMHO they aren’t as good as Brian Clough who made Derby champions and then took Forest to win the European Cup with players like Peter Withe FFS!

        • Sexy Beast April 15, 2018 at 6:34 pm

          Peter Withe won it with Villa Glos
          Trevor Francis won it with Forest

          • Gloster1861 April 15, 2018 at 6:48 pm

            True. Ron Saunders was another very good manager. Never hear him mentioned but Villa winning the European Cup was amazing.

      • caveman April 15, 2018 at 7:26 pm

        Very true Nick, whereas Poch can get turds to play.

    Can you imagine the carnage on the Manure blogs :-).

    • Caspurs♿️ April 15, 2018 at 6:00 pm

      Ambulance crews are being drafted from across the north west to cope with the fallout.

  • Gloster1861 April 15, 2018 at 5:54 pm

    So, second place is still up for grabs.

    And the semi final will be disputed by two off key teams…

    • Nick April 15, 2018 at 5:56 pm

      If yesterday is repeated 4th will be a push

    • mystic arnold April 15, 2018 at 6:06 pm

    Without De Gea I seriously doubt Utd would even be in the top four right now. I really hope Madrid finally take him off their hands over the summer.

        Why?

        • ronwol96061 April 15, 2018 at 5:54 pm

          I think 1pt would have kept them in the hunt mathmatically.

      • Caspurs♿️ April 15, 2018 at 5:36 pm

        Doesn’t help us, quite the opposite.

        • ronwol96061 April 15, 2018 at 5:58 pm

          Not sure..I think United out of contention beaten by their rivals would cause them to be more focused on next week

  • Horndog 🇺🇸 April 15, 2018 at 5:33 pm

    Speaking of the unspeakable. Millwall have clawed their way into a playoff position in the Championship. Can you imagine The Den, and their faithful, as a Premier League destination?

    • Harry Hotspur April 15, 2018 at 5:41 pm

      Wolves will be lively enough…

  • UnkleTaff April 15, 2018 at 5:31 pm

        I managed to give Mullers a man hug on the pitch after the whistle at wolves in the UEFA cup final at molyneux, got promptly arrested and had to run the gauntlet at the wolves end. The old bill kept me until the last train back to london had left. Happy days .I only had Totenham to think about then and we won things.

    One thing i speshly like about the new stadium layout is that the away fans being in the north east corner, they will (at the front) get a good soaking when it rains and the usual wind is from the south west. Nice one Daniel.

  • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? April 15, 2018 at 4:40 pm

    Funny shit. All season I haven’t heard a peep on the wireless from these pundit/commentaters about VAR being a must, just that’s its a farce(which it is). Today, now the decisions been made the Prem and Champs Lge won’t be using it next season and its all safe and tucked up every other sentence is, “VAR would have sorted that…… Man City wouldn’t av had a penalty with VAR…we need to move forward with VAR…..” Etc etc etc. Serving the corrupt masters well. Spineless twats.

  • Gloster1861 April 15, 2018 at 4:20 pm

    Bang on. Poch is stubborn. He clings rigidly to his latest system and won’t change. Should have played a back three yesterday to provide back up to Tripp and Davies who were left to swing.

    Don’t tell us Toby isn’t fit yet, because it’s wearing thin. Players need to play to reach maximum fitness.

    • Harry Hotspur April 15, 2018 at 4:25 pm

      Very true. A player at even 60% needs primo game time to magic up his percentage. You don’t get it in the training pitches.
