“Toby is going to be involved in the squad and then tomorrow I will decide if he is going to play or not.”

…the gaffer told the Evening Standard.

I will decide.

Hark at her.

However if you look at what has actually gone on – in the public domain – Mauricio hasn’t put a foot wrong.

All along.

Toby was run out twice in domestic cup games and was roundly appreciated as being sub-par.

It was only then that the press (MSM 😜) hyped up the whole ‘Disaffected Belgian Crock Can’t Buy A Game’ spiel.

It was obvious as the nose on your moody looking sister in law’s face that that Tobes wasn’t truly ready to rumble, yet even I fell into the same trap as you in ‘assuming’ Poch was being a tart.

The gaffer referred to our most antiquated Belgian in a very matter of fact way.

Toby is still our player, with a two-year contract. I’m sure he’s going to play until the end of the season. He’s doing well, he’s training and he only needs to wait for his opportunity.”

Trouble is, smoke usually equates to a fire.

This all said, it’s been saddening how some of our support let upon the opportunity to deride Toby as player – indeed as a person – on the back of an injury that was evidently more complex than was first thought. Wholly unsubstantiated wage demands were being taken as rock solid evidence that the lad was seeking to exploit the goodwill of the club, bizarrely, whilst in a supposedly weakend position.

Fingers crossed we see Toby back at his very best tomorrow night.

Even if it’s for Charity Minutes.

Give us hope.

At least leave us with that…

    Same with Lamela. From a LOT of our support. All manner of bullshit rumours and innuendo about drugs and wanting to leave.

    If I was looking at any players in the window from the existing bottom half clubs it would be:
    Lascelles – Newcastle
    Zaha – Palace
    Anautovic – Spammers

    Would love to prise Tammy Abrahams away from Cheatski. I would spend anything to get this kid. he will be one of the best in the world very shortly.

    Plus bring in Sessegnon which apparently is a strong possibility.

    • Syd April 17, 2018 at 6:02 am

      Sell:
      Rose, Davies, Onomah, Sissoko, Winks, Georges Kevin N’Koudou, KWP, Janssen and Llorente (I think Davies is good but we need better).

      Mourn didn’t put a foot wrong. Great respect for the way he came in and played like that. Really good close control and that pass to Eriksen was fantastic. Got a shit in him too, that wasn’t an easy one to hit and it had some swerve on it. The futures bright and Lilywhite.

    When we signed Moura Poch said; “We don’t sign targets, we sign opportunities”
    Basically we are in the market for players that the top 4 or five clubs in England, Spain, Italy and Germany don’t want.
    Levy and ENIC basically have us sifting through the waste bins of the world transfer market for players. City, Utd, Liverpool and even Woolwich get first dibs over us.

            What bout you DD, would you play Tobes if he’s gone ? Providing fit and capable to do a better job. Hypothetical of course. Would you do it for the fans or go with the team to win the cup. *ouch just shot myself in the foot again.

            • David Dillenberg April 17, 2018 at 2:29 am

              It’s a hard call I would play Tobes. Regarding Rose not fully convinced about any of our full backs. Hence the reason KWP ought be promoted to the line up.

              • Antspurs April 17, 2018 at 2:38 am

                If he’s ready there’s a call to be made, but if he’s going (which may not be the case) and he wants to play 4 at the back I think he should keep Sanchez. To drop Sanchez wouldn’t be on merit for me and would take away valuable experience from a player who will be with us next season.

                • Antspurs April 17, 2018 at 2:41 am

                  If he’s going with a 3 then Rose and Aurier, but same applies in this situation.

          • David Dillenberg April 17, 2018 at 2:31 am

            Morning Ant. Fell asleep now woken up!

      • Willie! April 17, 2018 at 2:29 am

        Hilarious to read down below someone advocating selling Coco and buying that fat little swiss kid. Nobody in our team has more steel and grit than Lamela. If we’re going to pick over the relegation fodder, I’d be having a look at James McClean. We could do worse than trying to pry Chris Wood out of Burnley as a backup to Kane, he’s surely better than Llorente at this point, whether he’d be willing to play second choice is another question.

        • Antspurs April 17, 2018 at 2:43 am

          Fat little Swiss kid 😂. He is some player and is great going forward. Would be good I think burn not at Lamela’s expense. I think Lamela will have a great season next year.

          • Antspurs April 17, 2018 at 2:44 am

            Chris Wood is a good call.

            • Syd April 17, 2018 at 5:45 am

              Chris Wood is a good call. Looks confident and capable and very similar to Kaninho

        • David Dillenberg April 17, 2018 at 2:48 am

          Why would Chris Wood want to leave Burnley?
          James McLean – no
          Ryan Bertrand – Yes

          • David Dillenberg April 17, 2018 at 2:49 am

            James Tarkowski – yes.

          • Antspurs April 17, 2018 at 2:50 am

            To play for Spurs of course – Bertrand looks a good shout too.

            • David Dillenberg April 17, 2018 at 2:52 am

              and would make him captain which is not he already for the Saints.
              Price tag £25m?

              • Antspurs April 17, 2018 at 2:53 am

                • David Dillenberg April 17, 2018 at 2:54 am

                  Yes

                • Antspurs April 17, 2018 at 2:54 am

                  Jeez DD, you’re giving the captaincy away willy Nilly

                    Why?

                    • Antspurs April 17, 2018 at 2:56 am

                      To keep Lloris on his toes.

          • Willie! April 17, 2018 at 3:53 am

            Bertrand, who’ll be 29yo when the seasons starts, who was long ago surpassed by Danny Rose in the England setup. Comical. Luke Shaw or Sessengon would be the obvious first choices to get a new LB in, but McClean would be significantly cheaper than either, runs his socks off, has an edge to him, and puts in one hell of a cross. I’m sure the scouts know all strengths and weaknesses, but I have a feeling Sessengon is going to get snapped up for big money and we’ll be out of the picture on price alone.

  • Hartley® April 17, 2018 at 1:05 am

    In my opinion Alderweireld was the best defender in the world at the time of his injury, when you have an incompetent blind senseless frenchman with a fear of round things as the last man you need the best defenders just to be average at the back.

  • Syd April 17, 2018 at 12:47 am

    I don’t think most on here were deriding Toby but more Poch. I don’t blame Toby for asking for more money. However on his part there is no getting around the fact he is 29 and has an existing 2 years left on his current (given the option taken up).
    His bargaining position as a 31 year old is greatly diminished, however being worth as much as he is at the moment I don’t think Levy will let that value decrease and I believe Tobes will be sold next window…..unfortunately

    • AntSpurs April 17, 2018 at 12:55 am

      If he’s gone Syd, would you play him?

      • AntSpurs April 17, 2018 at 12:55 am

        Hard call.

        • AntSpurs April 17, 2018 at 12:57 am

          If Poch thinks he’s better than what we’ve got of course.

          • AntSpurs April 17, 2018 at 12:57 am

            What I mean is if he’s fit, capable of doing a better job to win us the cup.

            • Horndog 🇺🇸 April 17, 2018 at 1:42 am

                      In theory yes but as Toby solidifies the defence IMO his absence is a loss.

                  • Syd April 17, 2018 at 5:49 am

                    No need to drop Sanchez. You drop Davies

                • Horndog 🇺🇸 April 17, 2018 at 3:20 am

                  Yep, if he is fit and mentally ready

      • Syd April 17, 2018 at 5:47 am

        I would def play him every game I could. We were never stronger than when we had Tobes, Jan and Sanchez at the back. That’s when Sanchez was really learning and growing. Yes I def would Ant.

  • Lilywhite without the ll April 16, 2018 at 9:27 pm

    As doom and gloomy as it might sound, I think winning the FA cup and moving to the new destination will not make too much difference to the squad staying together. There is a strong possibility that Poch will be rebuilding this summer rather than reinforcing…I think Erik could go if theres anything with that article “I know what it takes to get him a move after speaking to the chairman”…no shit….he has been with us awhile now so probably wants something if the move is right……Toby, Rose possibly Mousa, possible lala, possible Sissoko/Dier (cough)…include Walker in that and thats half the team after two summer transfers gone that finished 2nd…Alli may stay one more year as he’s had a tougher season…….thats why Poch is perfect for Levy…

  • Mad Carew April 16, 2018 at 9:23 pm

    Hammers offside again, looked like 2 good goals

    • 61SpursNut🌰 April 16, 2018 at 9:25 pm

      That last one, Aintarfatwit was directly in line of sight of the keeper.

      • Caspurs♿️ April 16, 2018 at 9:30 pm

        And the other was clearly offside, but apart from that, perfectly legal goals..

        • Mad Carew April 16, 2018 at 9:32 pm

          You think the first one was offside.

          • 61SpursNut🌰 April 16, 2018 at 9:35 pm

            As statements from you go, that is pretty accurate. Bravo.

        • Still Nil Nil April 16, 2018 at 8:55 pm

          Why sell lamela for him?
          Not allowed both?

          • David Dillenberg April 16, 2018 at 8:56 pm

            Ok just sell Lamela and replace him with a better player. Ditto Aurier.

            • Still Nil Nil April 16, 2018 at 8:57 pm

              But to get aurier lamela wasn’t sold

                Trouble with Lamela whilst his energy and work ethic is faultless what does he actually contribute?

                • Still Nil Nil April 16, 2018 at 9:04 pm

                  He makes some assists and gets into the box but is often ignored as Son and Kane get tunnel vision when inside the box
                  And he does have a great finish

                  • David Dillenberg April 16, 2018 at 9:10 pm

                    Against Citeh unless I am mistaken he selfishly opted to shoot instead of passing to Kane who was free in the box. Admittedly an isolated moment but I have said it.

                    • Still Nil Nil April 16, 2018 at 9:11 pm

    As good as Man City are, they wouldn’t be as prolific without KdB. What a fantastic player. He is without question the best player in the league. The first time volleyed pass he made towards the end of the spurs match setting up the diving squealing little shit sterling whose shot was defected wide by Sanchez epitomises just how good he is.
    As good as city are, I don’t think they’d be walking the league this season without him.
    They’d be there or there abouts but not stonking it like they are. KdB is with at least half their points either in goals or assists or the ball played just before the assist.
    Bindippers would be nowhere without ham salad.
    He won’t be as prolific next season cos he’ll have been found out.
    The blue racists have been poor because they do not have an outstanding player this season.
    Spurs despite their great undefeated run have faltered due to the key man Kane being injured then fruitless in front of goal since.
    My point is, no matter how good a Team is, they all rely heavily on any given individual for that season.
    And when they don’t have it, the whole club suffers as a result.

    But they do have him

    And for thec 2 games they played us in the league, they wiped the grass with us

    Lpool did a job on them that we simply couldnt copy, we lack the intensity i feel, to go toe to toe with these fucks

    Beyond that, our defense has reverted to the old Spurs self distruct mode

    • David Dillenberg April 16, 2018 at 8:41 pm

    It has got to the point I guess where the keystone cop performances of Lloris,Trippier,Davies,Dier and on and off Sanchez cannot block Toby’s progress back into the team. With no hamstrings he is still a mile better than any of those named in terms of professionalism and experience. Our defence needs stablishing pronto if only to cut out the kamikaze antics of our post Brexit Frenchie in between the sticks. Look how many times he is now being placed in one on one situations because our defence have turned over possession or lost their man. Lloris was far more secure when he had Tobyes and Verts in front of him. Pooch’s comments about competing with Man City are beyond farcical. He has had his pants torn down and been severely reamed by Guardiola this season. Did you see the look on Guardiola’s face when Pooch tapped his cheek before the kick off. It was like a pupil doing that to a Headmaster, the disdain from Guardiola was palpable.. Pooch likes to place himself with the big coaches but he forgets he has won sweet FA and to them is no more than an arrogant boot boy.

    • Harry Hotspur April 16, 2018 at 7:59 pm
