Another brutal slaying at the hands of Pochman The Barbarian.

Mauricio is very much having it his own way on a run of soft opponents that will end abruptly next weekend.

Before we get to that, let’s look at the hay that’s been made while the sun has been shinning. 4 goals past Bournemouth, 4 goals past Watford, Swansea (eventually) hammered, Burnley beaten.

This Spurs side has had goals coming out of every orifice this term.

Stoke were beaten 4-0. West Brom was another 4-0. We put 6 past Southampton, home and away and scored 8 in total against Swansea.

In the cups Millwall had 6 put past them and Fulham conceded 3, oh and wasn’t it 5-0 against Gillingham?

Goal upon goal upon goal.

Bournemouth were puzzling to behold. In the respect that they turned up seemingly unaware of the potential pitfalls of playing Spurs and seemed to think this was some sort of pre-season friendly.

There response to every goal was the same and they were lucky the ref brought matters to an end when he did as Tottenham looked like they could have carried on banging them in through the night.

Poch stuck to his guns (perhaps because it was Bournemouth) and retained the 4231 malarky. Which seemed to put and end to Trippier’s chances of continuing his good works, also Dier was preferred to the more interesting Wanyama.

I pray to whoever’s listening this isn’t how we shape up against the Blue Racists. Dier’s a nice boy but he’s too ponderous.

In respect of Bonzo, I want to beat Chelsea, not give them a helping hand. Trippier please.

Against Bournemouth …and Hugo wasn’t truly called upon and he resisted the urge to dabble in any self-inflicted chaos.

Toby/Verts ticked over gently like a pair of gently ticking things.

Davies wasn’t great. Not awful. Not great.

Mousa. Farewell trundling trundler, hello Mighty Mous(a)! Dozens of forward passes. The old boy really did blitz the Cherries.

If Eriksen can replicate this performance against the Blue Racists next week then we will win.

Dele delivered the usual Alli pizza. Didn’t score and therefore was ‘alright’.

Son had a bit of a stormer. Amazing what you can pick up at the Post Office.

Kane‘s second appearance after injury, Kane’s second most intelligent game contributions after injury.

Vinny – what a beauty.

    Man U have only lost three games all season, same as us.

  • The Great White Hope April 16, 2017 at 3:41 pm

    Man Utd fans backing Jose for saving Ibra for their Europa Game as is Lampard, this would never have happened under Fergie !

    WBA 0-1 Liverpool

    Big decision time for Poch this week I think the balance of the team is spot on right now so if he decides to to drop dier into a back 3 bringing Wanyama into the middle then he changes the front 4 who are tearing teams apart and the one who usually vacates his Son and hes been sensational. Same starting 11 for me

  • SpurAndy 🍒π April 16, 2017 at 3:03 pm

    Moanhino dropped the Zlat to the bench. Looks like he’s prioritises the Ropey over the league.

    • The Great White Hope April 16, 2017 at 3:08 pm

      Yep, quite clear the Anderlecht game is an all eggs in one basket shot for the Reds. They’re throwing this one !

      • Frontwheel 2 April 16, 2017 at 3:15 pm

        I don’t think so,still a very strong line up and if they win their games in hand they would be level with the bindippers

        • The Great White Hope April 16, 2017 at 3:21 pm

          A point is no good for Man U so if they are level by the hour mark bring on Ibra, too negative, the rest have been firing blanks all season, Chelsea will be 3 up by the hour mark.
          Moreno misses an open goal !

      Max Meyer tnot.

    • ronwol196061 April 16, 2017 at 2:47 pm

      Dele can do all that
      He is a bit Eriksen a bit Dele

      • The Great White Hope April 16, 2017 at 2:50 pm

        I thought he was more like Holtby Mk2

  • caveman April 16, 2017 at 2:34 pm

    We have improved immensely since last year, we have just taken 12 points from mediocre opposition in our last four matches, last season and certainly before that we would have f*cked up that opportunity. No one is doing stupid things these days, it’s all clicking into place. I really think that Dier in midfield is adding to the flow as Wanyama is good at breaking up play or retrieving possession but he’s not as forward thinking as Dier. I’m not complaining though. COYS.

    • ronwol196061 April 16, 2017 at 2:39 pm

      We may need both for the Chelsea game,infact all 3

      • caveman April 16, 2017 at 2:48 pm

        True, they’re all part of a very good squad. Can you imagine the value Poch puts on a player like Dier or Walker/Trippier, he has multiplied their value tenfold. He’s done it with most of the squad. Levy must keep him as all cost.

  • The Great White Hope April 16, 2017 at 2:25 pm

    Nothing like the Liverpool team that showed us up !

  • ronwol196061 April 16, 2017 at 2:23 pm

    West Brom have to take them on now but that Kanu whathisname is useless eustace

    • Horndog April 16, 2017 at 2:26 pm

      So is Chadli, non factor as well

  • The Great White Hope April 16, 2017 at 2:17 pm

    0-1

  • ronwol196061 April 16, 2017 at 2:14 pm

    I am going to record the game and use it to put me to sleep tonite

  • ronwol196061 April 16, 2017 at 2:13 pm

    The blog,not the bog,and the game need to pick up speed!

    The worst shot I have ever seen in my life

    Klopp could be a flowerpot man

    I do like the screw fix adverts,its my thang.

    • The Great White Hope April 16, 2017 at 2:01 pm

      Is Klopp doing them as well ?

      • Frontwheel 2 April 16, 2017 at 2:05 pm

        He’s not classy enough

        • The Great White Hope April 16, 2017 at 2:07 pm

          Not in the same league as Barry Scott !

  • richspurs April 16, 2017 at 1:56 pm

    Good blessed resurrection Sunday to all yous. Nice 4-0 win but it was only Bournemouth. The blue racists next Sat will be a proper test. I prefer 3 at the back, less ponderous, yes we were ponderous at times and proflglate in front of goal yesterday. No time to relax of fall asleep on the pitch. We need every ounce of concentration, skill, sweat, toil, blood n tears till the end of the season.

    • Horndog April 16, 2017 at 1:55 pm

      Nice Chadli whiff.

      • The Great White Hope April 16, 2017 at 1:56 pm

        That’s why we let him go

        • 89Spurs 👁 April 16, 2017 at 1:59 pm

          He’s so slow.

  • McG ⚽⚽ April 16, 2017 at 1:50 pm

    Interesting that Dembele’s best performance has been alongside Dier. Either or for me, Wanyama and Dier both quality. Def Walker against the chavs too, will need his pace both ends of the pitch…

  • ronwol196061 April 16, 2017 at 1:50 pm

    Both West Brom and Liverpool look similar

    • Gus April 16, 2017 at 1:51 pm

      You mean neither look top 4?

      • McG ⚽⚽ April 16, 2017 at 1:52 pm

        They both playing in red…

      • ronwol196061 April 16, 2017 at 2:01 pm

        Its a nice pleasant game. West Brom are a good team and they are not letting Liverpool to be aggressive or maybe Liverpool are not being aggressive.

  • ronwol196061 April 16, 2017 at 1:48 pm

    Excellent tackle there

    • The Great White Hope April 16, 2017 at 1:49 pm

      Can you see through these things ?

  • The Great White Hope April 16, 2017 at 1:43 pm

    Had to laugh when Eriksen played a triangle with Walker, needless to say Walker didn’t read it, come on CE….what did you expect ?

  • UnkleTaff April 16, 2017 at 1:40 pm

    Dembele?

    Meh…

    • 89Spurs 👁 April 16, 2017 at 1:40 pm

      Manure to win 2-1 that will does us fine. WBA are having a go against the Pooh.

      • ronwol196061 April 16, 2017 at 1:42 pm

        West Brom match up well with Liverpool. Well balanced team

    • ronwol196061 April 16, 2017 at 1:41 pm

      hahahaha!

      I know you rated him as a 9 without a doubt!

      • UnkleTaff April 16, 2017 at 1:43 pm

        He was excellent yesterday. Probably the best performance I’ve seen him give for us. If he can continue to play as well as that I’ll be well chuffed.

        • ronwol196061 April 16, 2017 at 1:46 pm

          We could see yesterday Dembele pushing up further and going for it something he hasnt done and Eriksen also pushing forward with less side passes. This means the whole team is becoming positive and less fear and more confidence

          • UnkleTaff April 16, 2017 at 1:49 pm

            How much of yesterday’s performance was helped by having Eric Dier back in the midfield? Since he replaced Wanyama there I think we’ve just looked generally better all over the park.

            • Gus April 16, 2017 at 1:52 pm

              Dier has been great. He looks to move the ball vertically at every opportunity

            • ronwol196061 April 16, 2017 at 1:53 pm

              I think that Poch has settled for 4 at the back but seems to have make the midfield more fluid using Dier and Dembele.
              Dembele is taking more chances but also the forwards are pressing a lot better so play is not countering against us so much so its been plain sailing

              • ronwol196061 April 16, 2017 at 1:57 pm

                The game against Chelsea will be interesting. Will Poch go three in the middle? or open the game up?

  • ronwol196061 April 16, 2017 at 1:38 pm

    Dele I think did a lot of work,unsung work.
    Dier has been great lately.
    These two players didnt shine out but they definately added to the mix.

    • Gus April 16, 2017 at 1:46 pm

      And more goals than Gerrard’s best effort in a season. Not bad for a 21 year old on the up

  • Gus April 16, 2017 at 1:30 pm

    Go yanited stick it to the racists!

    • Horndog April 16, 2017 at 1:33 pm

      Same for the Baggies, make the Dippers eat dirt. Just for fun.

      • Gus April 16, 2017 at 1:34 pm

        OK
