Tottenham Hotspur

Learning Curv(aceous)

Learning Curv(aceous)

Goals from Mousa Dembele, Son Heung-min, Harry Kane and Vincent Janssen completed a 4-0 victory over Bournemouth at White Hart Lane as Tottenham closed the gap to leaders Chelsea, who travel to Manchester United on Easter Sunday, to four points.

Spurs were in a similar position last year but faltered at the tail end of the season as Pochettino’s men went from second place to fourth in the standings.

But Pochettino insists his side wasted too much energy focusing on their rivals and now feels Tottenham are more equipped to ensure the title chase continues until the last game of the season.

“I think we learned a lot,” the Spurs boss said.

“That was a very bad period at the end of last season. We expended a lot energy fighting against Leicester, but against West Brom, against Chelsea, against the media. We fought against everyone. But now we are focusing on fighting our opponents when we play.

“Then we spend time and energy on preparing ourselves to compete in the best way. We have improved a lot, from the beginning of the season that was our chance to improve our mentality, our belief and I think you can see the group and the team have improved.”

Pochettino also admitted that he has preached the importance of goal difference playing a factor in the title run-in this season.

After another 4-0 win and clean sheet, Spurs now hold the best goal difference in the league and Pochettino feels that, coupled with their defensive stability, has helped create a winning mentality at the club.

When asked if goal difference will be important this season, Pochettino said: “It’s so important. The only way to build that winning mentality is to always play in the same tempo, with the same focus during the 90 minutes.

“3-0, 4-0, it’s important to keep possession, to score goals and that is the mentality we are building. Four points is still a lot. If they (Chelsea) drop points tomorrow that will be fantastic. But they are still the favourites to win the Premier League.

“We are fighting for ourselves, for the second consecutive season we are there, and I think that is a great credit for players and the club.”

    Just finished a tough weekend at the pub. My memorable moments were when: a) our local chelsea wanker asked a lovely spurs supporting tourist on Saturday lunchtime if we were going to ‘fucking bottle it like we always fucking do’ and : b) on sunday evening when, said local chelsea wanker, was abusing every poor sod in the pub because his team are wank. As I ‘moved him on’ he told me to ‘watch my dirty yid back’! I fucking hope we destroy the fucking soulless fascist cunts next Saturday!

    HH if you don’t mind can I give a Halibut update:

    Hal tells me he is on new Chemo drugs which are the worst he has had as far as side effects. His bloods have mixed results with high calcium which makes him confused and not sure of what is going on sometimes. He has had a ‘blocker’ which are making things worse for a while.

    He sends his best to all on TBH site.

    Our prayers are with you Tim.

                  Syd, I think your right, we’ll beat them. We might even put them in a downward spiral. I think they believe we are better ‘down deep’ and it will eat at them, especially if we win well next Saturday.

                  • Syd April 17, 2017 at 12:58 am

                    At the very least they are going to be a lot more concerned then they may ave been a few years ago…..I am not sure we will catch them in the league as they have a much easier run in. If we do pull the double off It will be vindication for some flat earthers….

                    • caveman April 17, 2017 at 1:13 am

                      Same as you, I think the title’s too difficult. But the Cup would be great and 2nd place to boot with the full assault next season.

  • Syd April 17, 2017 at 12:21 am

    I think one of the hardest games coming up to keep us in the chase is Palace away.

    Been on the road and not even had the time to write on here. All I know is that Potchs mind games of suddenly cranking it up on Chelsea yesterday made me believe that Chelsea would lose today. Never have I believed that we can win the league but we can and every single football fan in the land knows it. conte has a lot of work to do. Potch is getting into a new stride. He is leading us to new levels. God bless us all!!

    • gloster1861 April 17, 2017 at 12:19 am

      Cheatski don’t deserve to win. In their early games Costa deserved to be sent off three times but scored winning goals. By my reckoning they should be 4-6 points lighter.

    IF we can keep our heads the double’s ours. The quality, ability and desire of and amongst the players and management are beyond question. I don’t think those attributes are new this season, they’ve been there and growing for a few seasons. What we lacked was maturity. We are starting to look like we have grown up, and that we deserve / expect to win. Much like Utd under Ferguson.

    It wasn’t that long ago that I had an exchange with someone on here who (claimed to) believe Levy was actively working against the club’s chances of success. Levy must be gutted. Don’t let him near the lasagne!

  • ronwol196061πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ April 16, 2017 at 9:15 pm

    This flow that we had.It was serious. Its like a beat,a rythm.
    After that game I watched some of the other games. No rhyme or reason ,no backbeat,no jazz. Barely noise. But us?
    Like the first time I heard the Beatles,watched Cassius Clay.Saw our lot in 60-61
    Something Special.
    Dont discoint the beat,the flow.
    Ahhhhhhhhhh……..

    I have overrated Cheatski, they’ve had it all their own way until now and perhaps that helped them (no Europe etc). Game on!!

    • McG ⚽⚽ April 16, 2017 at 8:24 pm

      Momentum, we look awsome right now, irresistible. Watching us play yesterday, it actually felt as tho something special was happening. We need to win all six, that means putting Arse, Mancs, Leicester & spammers to the sword, 3 of which will be absolutely desperate to turn us over. Fingers crossed..

      • McG ⚽⚽ April 16, 2017 at 8:25 pm

        8 straight wins & we done the double!

        • Son of Mido April 16, 2017 at 8:35 pm

          WE can do it!

  • melcyid April 16, 2017 at 7:39 pm

    chavs never had 1 shot on target, pfft

    • UnkleTaff April 16, 2017 at 7:41 pm

      First time that’s happened to them in the PL since 2007. When they played Man U at Old Trafford.

  • gloster1861 April 16, 2017 at 7:37 pm

    Winning the last six games would mean we’d done thirteen on the bounce.

    Looking back, slipping up with Sunderland is a bummer…

    • Horndog April 16, 2017 at 7:40 pm

      This year we are not looking back..

    • UnkleTaff April 16, 2017 at 7:42 pm

      Chelsea could say the same about slipping up at home to Palace.

      It’s football.

  • Spurstacus πŸ’‹ April 16, 2017 at 7:28 pm

    Pooh and Sh*tty are still in the mix. Let’s not get carried away.

    • UnkleTaff April 16, 2017 at 7:34 pm

      Indeed. A Liverpool supporter was on the radio a few moments ago saying they’ll pip us to second.

      • East Stand April 16, 2017 at 9:02 pm

        Liverpool can’t defend well enough to catch us, unless we suddenly go tits up, they were hanging on against WBA.

        Whatever happens it’s going to be a cracking end to the season and we are hitting form at the right time.

        My only concern is that the semi might bust our rhythm if we aren’t careful.

    • SpurAndy πŸ’Ο€ April 16, 2017 at 7:35 pm

      I’ll take whatever the rest of the season has in store. The fact is we have a magnificent football team that fears no one and that other teams fear 😱.

  • Horndog April 16, 2017 at 7:22 pm

      you bet ….. remembering the saint ginola saving us against Barnsley….. nice being in this end of a fight

  • MiT April 16, 2017 at 7:10 pm

    Regarding the opinion that Trippier should get the start over Walker vs Chelsea… I disagree. Trippier is fantastic in matches without a tough defensive assignment… however, I believe Walker is necessary with Hazard’s particular skill set.

    I love both of them, and I think they have each been great for the development of the other.

    • McG ⚽⚽ April 16, 2017 at 8:08 pm

      Yep, agree with that totally

      • East Stand April 16, 2017 at 9:04 pm

        Walker is the more complete and player right now without doubt.

  • TheCincinnatiYid April 16, 2017 at 6:52 pm

    It’s looking good. Last year there was this edge of doubt and fear. I’m not feeling or seeing that this year. Man U will be tough at the Lane but beatable. With the Moose and Vinnie coming good, how can we fail?

    I think it all turns on the Cup game next week. We’ve pounded them before, we can do it again.

    COYMFS

  • Stevo1987 April 16, 2017 at 6:44 pm

  • JackDLad April 16, 2017 at 6:39 pm

    Would be unbelievable if we won the league on goal difference!

  • Son of Mido April 16, 2017 at 6:36 pm

    who’s up for Janssen getting the winner next week? and securing us the title against Hull? with a Sissoko assist?

    • TheCincinnatiYid April 16, 2017 at 6:54 pm

      You had me until you paired Sissy with something beyond all reason. Perhaps in another dimension, another galaxy. Sissy World is not our world.

      • MiT April 16, 2017 at 7:06 pm

        The man really can thread a nice final ball through once in a while. Takes time to get on the same page with new mates to do so. I admit that he looks cumbersome, but I am mot giving up on him.

  • Spursy April 16, 2017 at 6:35 pm

    We’re coming for yoooou!

  • ronwol196061 April 16, 2017 at 6:21 pm

    If we get 9 pts from the next three league games and Chelsea lose at Everton we will be 1pt behind

    • ronwol196061 April 16, 2017 at 6:25 pm

      We then would need to beat Leicester away or United away and get a point from the other game,and beat Hull

      • ronwol196061 April 16, 2017 at 6:26 pm

        If we beat Chelsea in the semifinal we could be playing for the double

      • Spursy April 16, 2017 at 6:39 pm

        United at home, Ron.

    • MiT April 16, 2017 at 6:57 pm

      I am figuring 2 Chelsea draws.

      • UnkleTaff April 16, 2017 at 7:00 pm

        That would be enough…

        …so long as we win our remaining six games.

  • UnkleTaff April 16, 2017 at 6:11 pm

    United’s win means they can still qualify for next year’s CL on two fronts. Hopefully this will serve to divide their focus and they’ll end up qualifying for neither.

  • UnkleTaff April 16, 2017 at 6:08 pm

    And that is why Utd are a better team with Rashford up front instead of Ibrahimovic. With Rashford they are quick and direct; with Ibrahimovic they are more ponderous and less effective as a result.

    The signing of Ibrahimovic might well cost Utd a CL place next year.

    • MiT April 16, 2017 at 7:00 pm

      Ibra has proven surprisingly good at involving his teammates this term. I honestly just think that United had much further to climb than most people realised.

  • Spursy April 16, 2017 at 6:08 pm

    • MiT April 16, 2017 at 6:53 pm

      +1

      They will be out to rile our lads up and get them out of focus. The gamesmanship will take stronger root.

      However, when Spurs prevail over all of that, Chelsea will be well beaten down mentally.

      We will Marmalise them !

      • The Great White Hope April 16, 2017 at 5:21 pm

        Marmalise means β€œutterly destroyed” or β€œtotally demolished”. It’s still known in Britain, though less than it was when the renowned Liverpudlian comedian Ken Dodd popularised it in the 1960s.
        It’s long-established Liverpool-Irish slang, said to be from marmalade plus pulverise. Its earliest known appearance in print is in Lern Yerself Scouse: How to Talk Proper in Liverpool by Frank Shaw, Fritz Spiegl and Stan Kelly: β€œI’ll marmalise yer. / will chastise you severely.” On rare occasions it has appeared in more exalted company:

    Champignons?

    More like fungi

  • Horndog April 16, 2017 at 4:25 pm

    Fellaini just won the battle of the hair

    • Spursy April 16, 2017 at 4:25 pm

      Belgian power eh? πŸ˜‰

      • ronwol196061 April 16, 2017 at 4:27 pm

        Brussels is still alive

        • Spursy April 16, 2017 at 4:41 pm

          Maybe Toby, Jan and Mousa had a word…

  • 89Spurs πŸ‘ April 16, 2017 at 4:23 pm

    It’s a better game than the last one WBA v Pooh.

  • ronwol196061 April 16, 2017 at 4:20 pm

    We need Costa to relatiate!

    • ronwol196061 April 16, 2017 at 4:20 pm

      whatever

  • UnkleTaff April 16, 2017 at 4:16 pm

    Never f*cking touched him!

  • UnkleTaff April 16, 2017 at 4:15 pm

    That was nasty from Costa. He could easily have pushed the defender onto the goalpost.

    • Horndog April 16, 2017 at 4:16 pm

      He so looks like a cartel hit man.

  • 89Spurs πŸ‘ April 16, 2017 at 4:14 pm

    Costa is a Crook!

  • Spursy April 16, 2017 at 4:14 pm

    United ahead!

    • Horndog April 16, 2017 at 4:17 pm

      Hi Spursy, how are you?

      • Spursy April 16, 2017 at 4:20 pm

        Hi Horny,
        Doing okay, thanks. How about you?

        • Horndog April 16, 2017 at 4:22 pm

          Terrific, all is well. I hate rooting for United but there is no alternative.

          • Spursy April 16, 2017 at 4:25 pm

            Exactly! Glad you’re well

            • Horndog April 16, 2017 at 4:29 pm

              You too!

  • UnkleTaff April 16, 2017 at 4:13 pm

    Ashley Young can dive his heart out today for all I care.

  • ronwol196061 April 16, 2017 at 4:10 pm

    Dont worry Tony Hancock will visit the United dressing room at half time and put Marcus Edwards in goal

  • Harry Hotspur April 16, 2017 at 4:09 pm

    Proper goal that.

    • UnkleTaff April 16, 2017 at 4:09 pm

      …from a proper striker.

      • Harry Hotspur April 16, 2017 at 4:10 pm

        Splitter!

  • 89Spurs πŸ‘ April 16, 2017 at 4:08 pm

    Rashford brill.

  • Horndog April 16, 2017 at 4:08 pm

    Great ball from Hererra

  • ronwol196061 April 16, 2017 at 4:07 pm

    Dont doubt Mourinho Pleazzzzzze!

  • Horndog April 16, 2017 at 4:07 pm

    Oh baby!

  • 89Spurs πŸ‘ April 16, 2017 at 3:56 pm

    Getting close, come on you Manure! 2-1.

  • UnkleTaff April 16, 2017 at 3:55 pm

    Alonso injured in the warm-up?

    • Horndog April 16, 2017 at 4:06 pm

      Yep, replaced by Zouma

  • Limerick AL April 16, 2017 at 3:44 pm

    That Utd Starting Eleven does not inspire me. Then again I am not easily inspired.

    • Spurstacus πŸ’‹ April 16, 2017 at 3:53 pm

      Wotcha, Al.
