    They spelt Wanyama wrong and he plays for Spurs, not Sunderland.

    Sissoko not being on the list proves a conspiracy by the crooked media. He would have won bigly, by a landslide.

    This is the most important vote in the history of our game folks, trust me. You need to get out and vote for me as president of FIFA as only I know how to fix this. I have the best temperament to deal with folks like Merson. Waterboarding? Sure! I like to remain unpredictable.

    No one has more respect for pundits than I do. Everything I have ever said, that has been caught on tape, to the contrary was just locker room banter. I did not actually grab Merson by the pussy. I mean come on, look at him. He would not be my first choice believe me.

    If you vote for me I will build a big, beautiful wall across North London to keep that invading French Soccer team (what are they called? Arse? Ass something? I don’t know) out of our territory. I will appoint a Special Prosecution Taskforce to prove the guilt and then forcibly repatriate this illegal team back to Woolwich. And they are going to pay for that big beautiful wall believe me.

    Let’s make North London great again

    poch is worried his teams are getting a reputation of flopping at the end of the season so they are allowed to do fuck all oct- dec to allow for the energy levels to be fresh come may what a ground breaker

    Hindsight is a wonderful thing, as we all know… But Siggy has looked several shades of ‘good’ since he went back to play for the Swans. As so often happens at Spurs, he struggled to pin down a regular first XI place and exert enough of an influence, but some of us felt he just needed a bit of regular game time in his best position as opposed to being stuck out on the left. Maybe we didn’t need him last season as it turned out. He might not have played. But remember when we all wanted a rival for Eriksen this summer – an alternative creator? Someone with an eye for goal who could come on when the Dane was having a bad day and spot a few passes or knock a goal in. Someone like Siggy in fact… 5 goals, 4 assists for the Swans so far.
    I wonder if he’d have fancied coming back – Champions League was on offer. I imagine he’d have been a good bit cheaper than Sissoko too… Hey ho.

    • Real Fan? ⚽️ November 29, 2016 at 4:22 pm

      Is Sigurdsson a player that you can see Spurs building a team around, as Swansea have? It’s an honest question. Sometimes he’s great, but is he good enough to make the centrepiece of our team. Is he the quality that everyone is shouting out for? In case anyone gets confused, I am not talking about Pochettino. I’m talking about Tottenham Hotspur.

      • UnkleTaff November 29, 2016 at 4:25 pm

        This is my take on it as well. Some players thrive on being a bigger fish in a smaller pond. Much as I love him, I think that Sigurdsson is one such player.

        • Horndog 😎 November 29, 2016 at 4:27 pm

          Yep, he is in his right place. No regrets.

          • Camus November 29, 2016 at 4:34 pm

            Good question, RF. I guess for me it would be a case of when Eriksen is doing nothing (which is often, currently), he’d be a useful player to have – he’d do ‘something’ I feel. But I accept your point that we couldn’t build the team around him, if that’s what would be required to make him tick.

            • Real Fan? ⚽️ November 29, 2016 at 4:47 pm

              So difficult for some (most?) players to have an immediate impact if they’re not playing regularly.

      • Caspurs♿️ November 29, 2016 at 4:40 pm

        RF, Siggy is a good player, but not amazing. Maybe the question should be, is it wise to build a team around one player at all?

        • Real Fan? ⚽️ November 29, 2016 at 4:45 pm

          Well there we stray into Poch territory, because his idea is that the team should always come before the individual. But then we head into a team looking mechanical because there is no space for individual flair.

          It’s a conundrum. It makes me realise what a truly difficult job it is to be a Manager and to keep the quality consistently high over a period of time.

          • Caspurs♿️ November 29, 2016 at 5:41 pm

            Not strictly what I asked. Players can and should always express individual flair (where necessary), yes our system is fairly rigid, but it’s been exacerbated by several of our players suffering low confidence and poor form. The second half of last season saw us play some great football, this was due to high confidence, gambles being taken (runs etc), at the moment, this is not the case.

  • Camus November 29, 2016 at 3:08 pm

    Gylfi Sigurdsson, hey?
    Who’d have thought there was a player worth keeping there – eh, Poch?

    Captain Hotspur, maintenance log, stardate 29.11.16.
    Whilst stranded in the Delta quadrant, the starship Boyager has been making steady progress in it’s quest to return home to the Alpha blog.
    Due to an anomalous region of space as yet unknown to science, we have been left unable to form a Ronwarp bubble.
    Several attempts have been made to initiate the Ronwarp drive, but chief engineer Scottie McNutty says the Amstrad dilithium crystal servers Cannae tak’ much mair ay thes!
    Additional systems have been affected including 7 of Real Fan 9’s optical implant, rendering her susceptible to database errors, and unable operate in federation issue high heels, resulting in her inability to carry out her duties.
    So far our efforts to overcome our predicament have proved in vain, first officer ChikoTaff has taken a timeout to examine the laws of fluid dynamics on the holodeck, by simulating a game of bowls, in the hope that a solution may be found.

      I’m detecting an unusual wave signature in the subatomic warp cannon, Cas.
      You need to regenerate the aft zero-point fusebox and then realign the quantum gearbox.

      • UnkleTaff November 29, 2016 at 4:26 pm

        …and if that doesn’t work you might try reversing the polarity of the neutron flow.

      I have no idea what you are talking about but my butt is tight enough to negate the need for heels.

    What!, no Sissoko on the ballot. How unfair! We wuz robbed.
