Poch told the press ahead of today’s bug match: “Of course, we are going to play a tough game and we need to keep our momentum, keep going and the three points are so important for us as we keep fighting for the top four.”

Quite how much of a fight Spurs will be able to put up is another thing. City have won the league. Manchester United look unlikely to self destruct which leaves us with the old ‘four into two don’t go’ sketch.

Chelsea, Liverpool, us and the Arsenal are all in this specialist hunt. Beneath this foursome lurks a morass of sides even less reliable than us. If anyone else is able to mount a credible charge from beneath this trapdoor it’ll be more than miraculous.

The fear – as ever – is missing out on Champions League and being landed with the Europa League booby prize. Anyone who thinks that playing at the New Destination™ will act as some mighty panacea heralding nothing but blue skies and high fives may want to pause and engage their brain.

If you didn’t get the memo, White Hart Lane was demolished a good while back and cultivating a home feel to the new grass and the new stands will understandably take time. Inflicting a up to another an additional 19 games or whatever it is (not to mention all the imbecilic travelling because Europe according to UEFA now extends to just a few miles west of Tibet) will be unhelpful in the extremis.

It’s a pity that THFC can deftly throw cup competitions at will, yet lack the same savvy when it comes to the league because of the gate receipts the Europa qualification offers.

Looking at the table now and having watched a fair amount of other teams this season, it’s Arsenal that I can see falling away. My prediction is that they will ‘survive’ the next the transfer window but less so the following one and the sense of impending chaos looms over the Emptycrates.

All contributions gratefully received, I say. Speaking of begging bowls, Glad says that the other hunt, for stadium rights naming rights is still on, largely due to the Bald One making these matters so complicated that Dr Brian Cox would have trouble working them out.

      Very much enjoyed my precious special Cardiff close family festive period.
      Where would Spurs be without Kane? when proving his doubters wrong and eating loads of humble pie never thought he would make it. How wrong I was.

        Unfortunately Toby is dead to us

  • HM Son December 26, 2017 at 12:44 pm

    Great initiative by Alli

  • Harry Hotspur December 26, 2017 at 12:40 pm

    Pal of mine is Saints and he’s convinced they’re going to be relegated

    • Zara December 26, 2017 at 12:41 pm

      He’s an Optician then

      • Harry Hotspur December 26, 2017 at 12:42 pm

        He disposes of dead bodies by trade

        • Horndog 🇺🇸 December 26, 2017 at 12:43 pm

          Then he’ll know what to do with Pellegrino

  • Harry Hotspur December 26, 2017 at 12:39 pm

    I might do a team sheet blog at half time. So I’m in sync with the Wembley vibe.

  • Horndog 🇺🇸 December 26, 2017 at 12:38 pm

  • HM Son December 26, 2017 at 12:33 pm

    Why the hell does Poch not address this shocking playing out from the back!

    • Aussie in Switzerland December 26, 2017 at 12:35 pm

      Lloris was the issue, nothing else

      • HM Son December 26, 2017 at 12:38 pm

        It’s happening in every game we play, must be addressed with urgency!

      For him, a more solid performance.

  • Superspoz 🏆 December 26, 2017 at 12:28 pm

    I joked on Twitter that Kane should of been benched. Some younger fans should ask Santa for a slice of sense of humour next Christmas

  • Syd December 26, 2017 at 12:19 pm

    Poch says Wanyama travelled with the team today and he is close and perhaps involved next game in some way

    • Horndog 🇺🇸 December 26, 2017 at 12:24 pm

      Here’s hoping he’ll stay healthy because if he does it will be a massive boost for us.

    Good evening peeps. I’m picking a 4 – 0 win for us

  • UnkleTaff December 26, 2017 at 12:11 pm

    Just hope this issue of Kane breaking Shearer’s record doesn’t derail us from the main task of securing all three points.

    Hopefully Harry gets his goal early and we can all relax.

  • Horndog 🇺🇸 December 26, 2017 at 12:09 pm

        • ronwol196061 December 26, 2017 at 12:09 pm

          The bench by itself is good enough. 2 planks of wood,one cut in half for the legs
          and thats just the players

  • Zara December 26, 2017 at 11:31 am

    Rose & Dembele in

  • ronwol196061 December 26, 2017 at 11:31 am

    Kane about Dele’s perforrmance

    “He was the pantomime villain out there but he got two assists – the penalty and my third goal. That’s when he’s at his best. Hopefully he continues like that.

    “Dele was great. He was aggressive – we were all aggressive and that’s what we said [before the game]. We had to come out, press, make runs behind, be aggressive and brave with the ball. That’s what happened and we deserved to win.

    “He’s a great person and he’s a great player. He’s got that aggressive side to him and that’s what makes him who he is.

    • ronwol196061 December 26, 2017 at 11:31 am

      Arent we supposed to do this every game?????????

  • Superspoz 🏆 December 26, 2017 at 11:29 am

    Burnley beat manu 6-1 on boxing day 1963.

  • Superspoz 🏆 December 26, 2017 at 11:27 am

    Another last minute ticket has fell into my lap. Thanks for nothing little bro. Ffs

  • mole ster⚽️ December 26, 2017 at 11:25 am

    We need a name that embodies our leader Poundland springs to mind or anything in this bin 50pence I quite like.

    • ronwol196061 December 26, 2017 at 11:27 am

      The name doesnt matter. Look at Englebert Humperdink

  • McG ⚽⚽ December 26, 2017 at 11:15 am

    Looking at todays matches, recon Palace will have a right old go at the goons today..

    • ronwol196061 December 26, 2017 at 11:18 am

      Goons have been sharp lately,Palace could give them a game though

      • McG ⚽⚽ December 26, 2017 at 11:23 am

        They were sloppy at the back v dips, Palace got just the sort of players to cause em similar problems..

        • ronwol196061 December 26, 2017 at 11:25 am

          Arse are a better attacking team than defending team these days.Its a question of how much possession they have in this case.

          • ronwol196061 December 26, 2017 at 11:33 am

            The reason I say this is they can pass the ball well

  • Zara December 26, 2017 at 11:13 am

    18/1 through Oddschecker with Paddy Power, thats more like the number !

    • MysteriousStranger December 26, 2017 at 11:19 am

      13/1 currently the Kane Hat Trick? Skybet have now gone 16/1 though.

  • McG ⚽⚽ December 26, 2017 at 11:07 am

    We still have to play the mancs at home, couple of draws for them & we back in the race for 2nd. I recon we still have a good chance of making top 2, need a win today tho!

    • ronwol196061 December 26, 2017 at 11:20 am

      Beating the small teams will help,beating the bigger teams will also help
      We seem to be coming back but fuck! Who knows!

      • McG ⚽⚽ December 26, 2017 at 11:24 am

        Stick with 4 at the back til Tobes returns & we’ll beat most sides, Wanyama back in a week or so, you’ll see!!

        • ronwol196061 December 26, 2017 at 11:26 am

          4 at the back never helped against a packed defence which the Saints might do

  • MysteriousStranger December 26, 2017 at 10:45 am

    Stayed in the Holiday Inn Basildon last night. Checked in around 10:30pm, arrived to see a huge hole in a 1st Floor window and claret sprayed all around the front entrance, along with a couple of Police cars. Nice.

    Charlton Athletic stayed there too. They are away to Southend today. Nice preparation for the game.

    • SpurAndy 🍒π December 26, 2017 at 10:53 am

      Ah the joys of Basvegas.

    • McG ⚽⚽ December 26, 2017 at 10:54 am

      Was it in Basvegas?!

    • Superspoz 🏆 December 26, 2017 at 11:01 am

      Sounds like it was a good party

  • McG ⚽⚽ December 26, 2017 at 10:31 am

    Merry Christmas everyone, hope you all had a lovely day. Haven’t been able to get on the site for a few days, apologies I’m a little late to the party!

    • 61SpursNut🌰 December 26, 2017 at 10:34 am

      Hope you had a grand day yesterday, McG.

      • McG ⚽⚽ December 26, 2017 at 10:37 am

        Yeah was lovely cheers mate, first one spent with my niece, she’s beautiful!!

  • jfdit December 26, 2017 at 10:28 am

    HH & the jetsom & flotsam, little treat to you all

    Lovely bit of info extracted from a rather pissed friend of mine who is very well connected with people at the top of the club re naming rights

    Low & behold Levy & Lewis are going to call the new gaff “White Hart Lane”

    now don’t shoot the messenger but if correct I’d say we’ll all be very happy with that

    • Caspurs♿️ December 26, 2017 at 10:30 am

      It will be by the fans at least.

    • 61SpursNut🌰 December 26, 2017 at 10:33 am

      That would result in a rather large amount of contentment.

    • McG ⚽⚽ December 26, 2017 at 10:39 am

      Just out of interest, does this mean Joe’s putting his hand in his pocket to facilitate us keeping our name?

      • jfdit December 26, 2017 at 10:47 am

        All I know is what he told me, my mate’s company does his corporate entertaining at West Ham since they went to the olympic stadium & was looking at switching to the Lane so had the full works presentation by senior bods @ spurs, very impressed by facilities, they were also pitching him for sponsorship at various levels

        I think we may end up with the White Hart Lane Stadium sponsored by Samsung/Canon/Panasonic etc

        • Harry Hotspur December 26, 2017 at 12:37 pm

          The loans cover the build, the Sponsorships are gravy – unless I’ve misunderstood the situation.

          Of course I would say this but ‘keeping it WHL’ is a clever way of presenting we couldn’t get anyone to pay what Levy was asking.

          Like a low net spend is a clever way of presenting we don’t spend any money…

          • jfdit December 26, 2017 at 12:49 pm

            spot on exactly what I said when told the info

    • SpurAndy 🍒π December 26, 2017 at 11:01 am

      Fookin levy, new he’d cock it up.

    • SpurAndy 🍒π December 26, 2017 at 10:56 am

      I think you’ll find Cas that the far more important news is that I’ve now recovered from it :).

  • Will knight December 26, 2017 at 10:13 am

    Stadium rights has been agreed, its Nike. Will be announced when the roof goes up. They are going with the pun watch us rise. I’m not even making this up! The Americans love a bit of drama.

    I know this Through the chap who is designing the stadium signage

    • ronwol196061 December 26, 2017 at 11:17 am

      *Just Do It Stadium

      Its about right

    • Zara December 26, 2017 at 11:17 am

      Herisked his job and you give out his details, great mate you are !

      • Jim,Newry Spur. December 26, 2017 at 12:10 pm

        I’m sure there is more than one man designing the signage.

    • jfdit December 26, 2017 at 11:55 am

      I never thought the finances would allow us the luxury of no naming deal, the nike info is what I previously thought was happening

      who knows but the info outlined below is very recent i.e. last week

  • Zara December 26, 2017 at 9:51 am

    Wm Hill have a Hurrikane Hat Trick priced at 12/1, shop around i’d be surprised if you can’t find better.

    • MysteriousStranger December 26, 2017 at 10:46 am

      14/1 Paddy Power.

  • Spankingspur December 26, 2017 at 9:50 am

    The “bald one” is a cunt I dont care what anyone says. NO FUCKING POTS worth mentioning. Shinny stadium shinny training ground is all well and good but NO FUCKING POTS. Anyway on my way to Wembley. YIDZ.

  • Zara December 26, 2017 at 9:42 am

    Great prog yesterday “Kane’s 2017” mid day, all 36 PL goals, another (8th) hat trick today will blast Shearers 22 year old record, so far 36 goals in 35 games this year, the lad is a revolution, one of our own, the Chingford Comet, he must be worth £250m at todays prices, thank God he’s ours.
    I confidently predict 4-0 today with Southamptons injury problems, 3 of those from the Golden Boot. COYS.
    Harry Kane first scorer and 4-0 is 30/1.

  • LingLongMan 🚯 December 26, 2017 at 9:40 am

    COYFS! Harry for a hattrick as my triple captain.

  • richspurs December 26, 2017 at 9:37 am

    IF …. them boys can steady themselves in the cerebral quarters, espdcially on the pitch, then top 4 is a doddle. They most certainly have the talent, the problem is the attitude.

  • Andre December 26, 2017 at 9:35 am

    We will see just how keen levy is on grabbing a champs league place in the transfer window. We could do with toby, dele and Rose getting better contracts ,showing that we intend on hanging on to our better players but don’t hold your breath. I fear that Europe league is on its way to the nwhl.

  • richspurs December 26, 2017 at 9:33 am

    Bored with qualifying for champions league bollox. Can’t we win some silverware for a change? 4 – 0 drubbing today.

  • Sid Trotter December 26, 2017 at 8:25 am

    Four into two does go if each of the four was a half, and we do play two halves. Yup, 2-0 with a Kane hatrick COYS

  • Ufluckinplic December 26, 2017 at 7:33 am

    Kane to break Shearer’s record today. I’m going for 2-0 and hope we score early to settle the nerves. Sanchez back and Victor apparently almost there is going to be a big plus in the new year. As you say H it’s going to be an interesting battle for the last 2 spots but I still think Manure will wobble and we need to capitalise and start turning draws into wins.
