    When are the dim dims gonna realize that recreational cannabis use will save the NHS? (Tax revenue) soon I reckon. They wonderful NHS probably wont get the money from it anyway. Slash the organized crime income too. And as for the police force. Would be a lovely boost for the Caribbean. Medical use CBD available here from today. They produce it here already for export only.

      And no I’m not a “pot head” but on some evenings I have been known to burn a cheeky (natural spliff. Shhhh. Why should that be a “shhh? I’m at home. I paid my taxes earlier from work!!!

      • MrChickenHead November 1, 2018 at 9:30 am

        Better than a gut full of grog, don’t hear about too many violent stoners.

  • Only Me. November 1, 2018 at 8:13 am

    the key was – 2nd string and no Sissoko! After watching him Monday I have concluded that Poch picks him because in training no-one runs more. We looked a far better proposition last night with worse players.

  • MrChickenHead November 1, 2018 at 12:35 am

    Gazza,Gazza,Gazza!!!

  • Tappaspur October 31, 2018 at 11:40 pm

    25.k empty seats roughly at our Wembley games. Imagine if Tottenham sold £20 tickets for those empties what it would do for the team. FILL IT!!!! Tottenham to dumb to think like that. Morons. Levy/Lewis cover that. You owe the fans. Big empty stadiums not a good look.

    • Tappaspur October 31, 2018 at 11:44 pm

      £20 ticket. Your lady gets in free!!

    • Paddio November 1, 2018 at 12:03 am

      Have the fans or team been that important to Enic/levy? The property management business is the focus

  • Tappaspur October 31, 2018 at 11:20 pm

    N17ers back on the the plot ages ago sipping a tea. Wembley returners wouldn’t even be close!

  • baz October 31, 2018 at 10:25 pm

    That pitch invader must have distracted them for the third goal

  • dilly October 31, 2018 at 10:22 pm

    Consistently wrong surely Citeh are favourites to lift the trophy?

  • Elevenstonedidiots October 31, 2018 at 10:08 pm

    One swallow does not a summer make but Foyth played well and there could be a defender in there after all but for me Sanchez just keeps getting better. His timing and positioning have improved greatly and he looked like a leader tonight.

  • legoverlass October 31, 2018 at 10:07 pm

    Arsenal at the Emptycrates

    • dilly October 31, 2018 at 10:08 pm

      Oh dear but still fancy our chances.

      • gavlav October 31, 2018 at 10:22 pm

        Piece of piss, might as well have been drawn against Gillingham u9s

      • Paddio October 31, 2018 at 10:24 pm

        Perversely think you are right

        • dilly October 31, 2018 at 10:25 pm

          Will Poch play a similar side?

          • Paddio October 31, 2018 at 10:33 pm

            Hopefully inc son, Ali and eriksen all start as our best 3 behind a striker

    • dilly October 31, 2018 at 10:30 pm

      We play Arse twice away in December firstly in PL on 02/12/18 and
      then Caraberro cup wk commencing 17/12/18

  • Cabspur October 31, 2018 at 10:07 pm

    we have the gunners!!

  • dilly October 31, 2018 at 10:04 pm

    Comfortable in possession keep Foyth in the side at the expense of Dier, me thinks as said

    • East Stand October 31, 2018 at 10:05 pm

      Dier plays in midfield, Foyth is a central defender. A fairly relevant aspect for you to consider…

      • dilly October 31, 2018 at 10:09 pm

        Unless I am mistaken wasn’t Dier originally a central midfielder until he was converted to midfield?

        • dilly October 31, 2018 at 10:10 pm

          *Central Defender

      • Paddio October 31, 2018 at 10:35 pm

        Hope we keep foyth in one position and develop him there, don’t need a jack of all trades mid field/ central defender player

  • PlayitagainSamways October 31, 2018 at 9:48 pm

    Sod it. Lets knock the blue racists and the goons out on our way to the final!!

    COYS

  • Accy October 31, 2018 at 9:45 pm

    Found that second half quite interesting tbf. Got to see what is going on with players’ extended absences. Llorente mostly gash, Nkoudou, gash, Wanyama, absolute gash. Aurier, Gash. Foyth recovering from hamstring, did well. KWP did very well. Alli, very good, I thought.

    • East Stand October 31, 2018 at 9:57 pm

      What about Son? Gash too?

      • Accy October 31, 2018 at 10:04 pm

        He was alright.

        Like I said, Dele good. Foyth good. Gazza good.

        • Accy October 31, 2018 at 10:04 pm

          Sanchez good.

    • Tappaspur October 31, 2018 at 10:08 pm

      The team won 1-3 away against a proper rival. In a cup game. So. All good really.

  • Cabspur October 31, 2018 at 9:43 pm

    MIDDLESBROUGH PLS

    • dilly October 31, 2018 at 9:55 pm

      k/o Palace

      • Cabspur October 31, 2018 at 9:59 pm

        oh yeah just noticed that,,ok Burton pls:)

    • Tappaspur October 31, 2018 at 10:09 pm

      In the final.

  • Lilywhite without the II October 31, 2018 at 9:43 pm

    good effort…well played Son and Foyth…hot and cold with the rest but a joy to beat them lot…..we need a lucky draw ..

  • Ronan October 31, 2018 at 9:41 pm

    Almost Nmania

  • Nicktheyid October 31, 2018 at 9:41 pm

    Foyth man of the match

  • Lilywhite without the II October 31, 2018 at 9:35 pm

    you noticed all our academy hopefuls are so small..

    • Accy October 31, 2018 at 9:42 pm

      Something in the water in Enfield

  • dilly October 31, 2018 at 9:35 pm

    League cup draw imminent.

  • dilly October 31, 2018 at 9:33 pm

    I suspect the London Stadium is empty?!

    • East Stand October 31, 2018 at 9:59 pm

      Dilly, one of your usual overly negative summations of Spurs included that we would go out tonight. Wrong, again….

      • dilly October 31, 2018 at 10:02 pm

        Easty not unduly overly negative. Just an honest hunch on the way we have been playing of late my lud!

  • Ronan October 31, 2018 at 9:31 pm

    Poch insulting the ‘Am now..

  • Finn October 31, 2018 at 9:29 pm

    My mate calls him “the squatter” (no rent)…… I’m sure there’s also some scatalogical references there to be drawn by the more creative among us….

    • Aussie in Switzerland October 31, 2018 at 9:32 pm

      Maybe it’s just the same as how we Australians have always nicknamed people with red hair “Blue”

    • Tappaspur October 31, 2018 at 11:14 pm

      Was thinking rigsby. Shire horses and caravans. But Leonard rossiter was quality. Shire horses are lovely animals and id love a mobil home. (Not a caravan. So ive got nothing.

  • dilly October 31, 2018 at 9:29 pm

    Perhaps we should drop Dier and give Foyth an extended run out?

  • Aussie in Switzerland October 31, 2018 at 9:28 pm

    Skippy

  • East Stand October 31, 2018 at 9:28 pm

    We have owned the Spams tonight…

    • East Stand October 31, 2018 at 9:28 pm

      Played them off the park.

  • Lilywhite without the II October 31, 2018 at 9:25 pm

    wrong team for low-rent to join at this point in his career…not all his fault..

  • East Stand October 31, 2018 at 9:24 pm

    Spams put in their place, luvlee…

  • Cabspur October 31, 2018 at 9:22 pm

    took it nice

  • Ronan October 31, 2018 at 9:22 pm

    Gonna beat them with sissy, GKN and the gentleman’s wardrobe all on the pitch!

    • Ronan October 31, 2018 at 9:23 pm

      Ah, wardrobe’s being wheeled off after putting them to bed

      • Aussie in Switzerland October 31, 2018 at 9:24 pm

        He’s the Road-train, not a wardrobe

  • Lilywhite without the II October 31, 2018 at 9:21 pm

    please ignore previous posts 😳🤣😆

    • East Stand October 31, 2018 at 9:23 pm

      Ha!! You slaaaag!!

  • marsinho October 31, 2018 at 9:21 pm

  • dilly October 31, 2018 at 9:19 pm

    Attendance:

  • Aussie in Switzerland October 31, 2018 at 9:19 pm

    Sissoko for Llorente hopefully

  • Aussie in Switzerland October 31, 2018 at 9:18 pm

    Come on

  • Lilywhite without the II October 31, 2018 at 9:18 pm

    please take off low-rent

  • Aussie in Switzerland October 31, 2018 at 9:17 pm

    Bad keeping….. But hahahahaha

    • dilly October 31, 2018 at 9:18 pm

      Coasting and then inviting unnecessary pressure!

      • Aussie in Switzerland October 31, 2018 at 9:18 pm

        Eriksen started their goal

      • East Stand October 31, 2018 at 9:26 pm

        Always a negative with Spurs, right DD?

        • dilly October 31, 2018 at 9:27 pm

          +1

          • East Stand October 31, 2018 at 10:02 pm

            More than with any other team right?

  • Ronan October 31, 2018 at 9:17 pm

    Omg

  • Lilywhite without the II October 31, 2018 at 9:17 pm

    shambles…

  • dilly October 31, 2018 at 9:17 pm

    Typical Spurs!

  • Aussie in Switzerland October 31, 2018 at 9:16 pm

    Foyth again again again

    • Ronan October 31, 2018 at 9:17 pm

      Superb, what a boy!

    • Cabspur October 31, 2018 at 9:17 pm

      yep.

  • Eddie October 31, 2018 at 9:15 pm

    Can’t get our game,but watching Chelski v. Derby.Huddlestone has been spraying some lovely balls out of central midfield.Just what we need.

  • Nicktheyid October 31, 2018 at 9:15 pm

    Victor and lowrent may as well not be on the pitch

  • Ronan October 31, 2018 at 9:13 pm

    Defending of the lowest order

    • Cabspur October 31, 2018 at 9:14 pm

      yep i agree total shocker.

      • Cabspur October 31, 2018 at 9:14 pm

        x5

  • Lilywhite without the II October 31, 2018 at 9:12 pm

    this could end bad…!!

  • Lilywhite without the II October 31, 2018 at 9:12 pm

    KWP is struggling Dilly

    • Nicktheyid October 31, 2018 at 9:13 pm

      Too light weight me thinks

      • Aussie in Switzerland October 31, 2018 at 9:14 pm

        He was pushed off but should have had free kicks, so not as bad as he seems….

    • dilly October 31, 2018 at 9:13 pm

      Disappointing but is KWP being played out of position?

      • Nicktheyid October 31, 2018 at 9:15 pm

        No he is a right back

  • dilly October 31, 2018 at 9:11 pm

    Hello: Blackpool have just reduced the arrears against 10 man Arse.

  • Cabspur October 31, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    N something is on for ali ,,super.

    • dilly October 31, 2018 at 9:12 pm

      Given both Skipp and Marsh (who?) a run out .

  • Ronan October 31, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    GKN in the shop window

  • Lilywhite without the II October 31, 2018 at 9:06 pm

    great block

  • Lilywhite without the II October 31, 2018 at 9:04 pm

    not great football lets be honest, lots of wayward passing..

    • Cabspur October 31, 2018 at 9:06 pm

      Yeah it is not great ,just shows how guano they are.

      • Ronan October 31, 2018 at 9:08 pm

        Yep, full strength at home in their cup final against a shadow spurs side.

  • Lilywhite without the II October 31, 2018 at 9:00 pm

    Take Low-rent off and……..just take him off

  • Cabspur October 31, 2018 at 9:00 pm

    nice assist by the west spam centre back

  • Cabspur October 31, 2018 at 8:59 pm

    yes!!

  • Lilywhite without the II October 31, 2018 at 8:59 pm

    Sonny……again..

    • Aussie in Switzerland October 31, 2018 at 9:06 pm

      Foyth again

  • Lilywhite without the II October 31, 2018 at 8:57 pm

    its almost like we want to lose 🤔

  • Lilywhite without the II October 31, 2018 at 8:55 pm

    Penalties?

    • Cabspur October 31, 2018 at 8:56 pm

      If its a draw yeah.

  • Andrew October 31, 2018 at 8:44 pm

    Call me strange, but I wouldn’t mind bringing Wayne Rooney from the USA. Not to start every game ,but in the bench ,a player who has won so many trophies and maybe that mentality may run off onto some of our players.

    • Tappaspur October 31, 2018 at 8:48 pm

      I’d rather pat Jennings check me prostate!!! Nooooooooo

      • Tappaspur October 31, 2018 at 8:48 pm

        Chinese doctor please 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

    • PlayitagainSamways October 31, 2018 at 9:00 pm

      Good one, Strange.

      We dont sign players so stop dreaming.

      I was having similar thoughts about Sturridge next summer. Out of contract and would be good back up to Kane.

  • Accy October 31, 2018 at 8:40 pm

    ugh

    • dilly October 31, 2018 at 8:48 pm

      Has Soldado retired?!

      • dilly October 31, 2018 at 8:49 pm

        Berbatov is a free agent?

        • Accy October 31, 2018 at 8:49 pm

          James Bond is a secret agent.

  • Andrew October 31, 2018 at 8:36 pm

    Is there any point in trying to win this game as the cup has cheatski’s name on it. Derby scored two own goals and apparently cheatski’s third was a foul beforehand on a derby player.

  • Lilywhite without the II October 31, 2018 at 8:36 pm

    that was hard work…

  • The Tottinghams October 31, 2018 at 8:34 pm

    Any recommendations for live streams ?

  • Aussie in Switzerland October 31, 2018 at 8:34 pm

    Chelsea scored their first goal

  • Cabspur October 31, 2018 at 8:30 pm

    Why dont half the players play the obvious pass and play it sooner flip amazes me the decision making by some of them…

    • Andrew October 31, 2018 at 8:37 pm

      What, pass the ball quickly ???? No, not us.

  • Cabspur October 31, 2018 at 8:27 pm

    foyth has played well so far ,calm with the ball and can actually play a pass.

    • Aussie in Switzerland October 31, 2018 at 8:31 pm

      Best thing is he passes quckly across the back

    • Ronan October 31, 2018 at 8:32 pm

      He has. KWP looks vulnerable though.

      • dilly October 31, 2018 at 8:36 pm

        Sill like the enthusiastic kid who has attacking intent.

  • Aussie in Switzerland October 31, 2018 at 8:25 pm

    Super Foyth

  • Ronan October 31, 2018 at 8:25 pm

    Great tackle

  • Lilywhite without the II October 31, 2018 at 8:24 pm

    dullness of the dull order..
    start well…switch off…now cant pass more the 2 balls in row..

  • Lilywhite without the II October 31, 2018 at 8:23 pm

    too many passes with our back to goal..

  • Lilywhite without the II October 31, 2018 at 8:18 pm

    we go 1 up and switch off…another dull game so far…

    • dilly October 31, 2018 at 8:19 pm

      Strange that when we should be going for the jugular!

  • dilly October 31, 2018 at 8:18 pm

    Spammers fans restless!!

  • Cabspur October 31, 2018 at 8:15 pm

    is the draw for the next round after the games?

  • dilly October 31, 2018 at 8:13 pm

    Chelksi 2 v Derby 2

    • Tappaspur October 31, 2018 at 8:14 pm

      Derby scored all four.

  • Lilywhite without the II October 31, 2018 at 8:12 pm

    sloppy game….we should be killing them..

  • Aussie in Switzerland October 31, 2018 at 8:12 pm

    Wanyama shocker

    • dilly October 31, 2018 at 8:15 pm

      He is too slow!

      • dilly October 31, 2018 at 8:15 pm

        Bring on Skipp or Sissoko

  • Lilywhite without the II October 31, 2018 at 8:06 pm

    I want to see them walking out at 55mins 😁

  • Lilywhite without the II October 31, 2018 at 8:04 pm

    Let rape them now 😆

    • East Stand October 31, 2018 at 8:06 pm

      Let’s take a dump in the London stadium.

  • Aussie in Switzerland October 31, 2018 at 8:04 pm

    Llorente did well

    • East Stand October 31, 2018 at 8:05 pm

      Llorente isn’t guano he’s just not used enough or in the right way.

      • Tappaspur October 31, 2018 at 8:07 pm

        Yep. Bread knife filleting a fish!

  • East Stand October 31, 2018 at 8:04 pm

    Back to the soulless hole that is the London Stadium for the Spam’s second cup final this season.

    A fitness exercise for Sonny, Alli and Eriksen and the much hyped Gazzaniga stood in front of the onion bag with several thousand six fingered pikeys behind for company, for at least 45 mins.

    And finally some KWP action for the double D.

    Interested to see how this pans out tonight…

    • dilly October 31, 2018 at 8:05 pm

      Skipp on the bench

      • Lilywhite without the II October 31, 2018 at 8:06 pm

        wheres hop?

  • Lilywhite without the II October 31, 2018 at 8:04 pm

    good goal….Sonny

    • dilly October 31, 2018 at 8:04 pm

            that didnt work last year did it??

    • dilly October 31, 2018 at 8:10 pm

      Son’s first goal in 20 games!

  • Tappaspur October 31, 2018 at 8:03 pm

    That’s it Tottenham. Molest that f u c k I n G ball.

  • Lilywhite without the II October 31, 2018 at 8:03 pm

    Spurs 90% possession yet Spam nearly score…

    • Cabspur October 31, 2018 at 8:04 pm

      foyth to the rescue on that one.

  • Cabspur October 31, 2018 at 8:01 pm

    The away fans are making themselves heard.

  • Lilywhite without the II October 31, 2018 at 7:47 pm

    come on you MFS!

  • Andrew October 31, 2018 at 7:45 pm

    Well, at least if the starting eleven don’t play well,there’s plenty of game changers in the bench.

  • Ronan October 31, 2018 at 7:36 pm

    Hahaha, 11 Sissys! That would be some of the richest comedy ever witnessed on a football pitch!

  • Paddio October 31, 2018 at 7:25 pm

    Considering the line up is what a lot of people have been asking for with probably a few exceptions,

    This side should win by 4 or so goals

  • Lilywhite without the II October 31, 2018 at 7:15 pm

    which one of those Sissoko’s is captain?

    • MrChickenHead October 31, 2018 at 7:18 pm
