Is Poch going throw the FA Cup? This is a rather crude way of addressing the gaffer’s plan to ‘rotate’, but if the net result is the same…

We have rotated and thrown numerous domestic cup games under Mauricio already. So this smells bad too.

Poch said: “You can not say we don’t take it seriously because we rotate. Tomorrow we are going to play and it’s Tottenham that play and we must win. The competition is so important like Premier League or Champions League.”

This is a fundamentally dishonest statement. He’s simultaneously saying that he wants to field players who haven’t been good enough for the Premier League and the Champions League, in order to compete in the FA Cup… which is as important as those competitions.

Jive.

Flimflam.

Snake oil.

When asked if he felt pressure to win a trophy, he denied it #calm.

“Of course our intention and desire is to win, but I am not obsessed to win. We want to win but we need to create a strong team with a strong mentality, winning mentality but not only the players – around the team – for that you need time and you never know.”

Wow. Not obsessed with winning a trophy. This is new level of expectation management, eh? Mind you, not a patch on what then followed…

“One year, two year, five years. I know we are in a good way waiting for a new stadium which will be an amazing for us, for the fans, for the club, for everything. Tottenham in the next few years if we continue like this will be one of the contenders to win trophies.”

So lap up the cosmetics and if anyone has the audacity to question when the trophy cabinet is going to be bothered – the stock answer is that we’re building something rather special.

This is garbage!

In 5 years time none of this current squad that are worth a damn will still be on our books.

Those that have ambition (like Kyle Walker and Danny Rose) will have flown the coop, and only the journeymen junk that nobody else wanted will remain.

Add to this that there will be no money for upgrading the squad for perhaps 5 years or more unless players are sold to facilitate it.

If Spurs win anything under Poch in the next 5 years then it will be because we lucked it.

This isn’t a strategy for anything other than a slow burn investment success – as I’ve been telling you for sometime now…

    Hi Camus, maybe ‘nice’ was correct?
    The English word nice came from an Old French word with the same spelling that meant “foolish.” This Old French word came in turn from a Latin word nescius that meant “ignorant.” … Later it came to mean “finicky” or “fussy.” Not until the 1700s did nice come to mean “pleasing” or “pleasant.”

            He is a strong physical player and I think he tries to play the way Pich wants him to play.
            He is a tough bastard in the tackle although hus position doesnt show it that much he goes in hard.its what we need in this game
            His talent is limited and his thinking is not anything that much but he us physical thats why I would pick him

    The fact is we all know Poch all about anything
    And its possible that Poch and Dan know even less.
    There is a peanut seller at Tottenham who knows everything there is to know abput Tottenham but were afraid to ask.
    I like Harrys instigations and his attacking of the status quo. It keeps them on their toes. That is what the press is supposed to do some impropaganda instead of being an extension of the Spurs Programme.
    Push the fuckers to do better I say.
    We need it and they need it.

    ImpropagAnda. My goodness Ronnie. Is that a word. If not it bloody well should be

    When I started Ronglish Inc in circa 1965 my intention was to create a language that only I could undetstand but then sometime last year thought I should expand my base so I started creating words that other people can use. Ive been working on it it my garage as when I bring it into the house my wife tells me its not going to work and I should go out there and get a real job..but I kept at it and created this word.the first of namy. Im proud of it. Im hoping to inleash the second one in 2019-20. Its a tedious job as its not sbout the word as much as the letters. Getting two consecutively is not easy and vowels can fuck you up.

    So if we don’t win something this guy will say his constant negativity and hindsight ‘telling us how it is’ is justified. Admittedly not helpful but I suppose in a way at least hard to argue with. The trouble is if we do win something there will be no happy “oh maybe I was wrong”. He says at the end of the blog entry if we win we’ll have got lucky and he’s still right, leading to more constant moaning about how he knows the right thing to do and the manager/everyone else is wrong. It just makes a total mockery of this guy being a “supporter” of the club. He doesn’t care about Tottenham doing well, he just wants to criticise and knock people who have achieved things he never was able to and try and show he knows more than them. Get over it, you never made in football. Try supporting the people who did instead of masturbating your own ego with these constant delusional omniscient tirades against a club you supposedly, (please note I don’t get this from you blog comments but I guess from the fact that claim to be a tottenham supporter), want to do well.

    Just like last season we seem to be blessed with some very easy matches to progress through the FA Cup. Genuinely think we’ll batter Newport at Wembley with a 2nd 11 and then do the same to Rochdale.
    Competition for places is genuinely back with Rose, Aurier, Wanyama, Lamela, Moura, Sissoko, Lloriente, Winks all not currently part of the first choice 11, some won’t even make the bench – the carrot of a good performance against Newport is getting into the starting line-up against Juve. Lacklustre performances will mean the rest of the season on the bench.
    The big question will be where we are in terms of the league and CL when we come to play the FA Cup quarter final. We could very well be out of the CL by then so be fully able to play a full strength side without the need to rotate too many for the rest of the season.

      If Pochettino is really saying that everyone is now starting XI
      match fit, then :

      1. tonight will be a very strong starting XI, without the CM creativity zero
      of the first game, and players like Toby and Wanyama trying to get 90
      mins in their legs to be selected for an NLD start.

      2. Everyone is going to have start putting in a shift in PL and FA Cup
      games if they want to be on the team sheet for the CL games.

        Truth is there’s a fairly big slice of luck with any cup run – if we get Man City before the final we won’t make it. A fair few poor teams will be in the quarter final – who knows we could get to the final without playing a decent team

        • Harry Hotspur February 7, 2018 at 12:15 pm

            I’m still scarred from when Redknapp rested Modric and others against Norwich in the PL (which we lost 2-1 at home) for the FA Cup semi final against Chelsea but kept Cudicini in out of ‘loyalty’. We also lost the PL game after the FA Cup game. Finished 4th not 3rd by one point and didn’t get into the CL

    I thought we were maybe going to go all out for the FA Cup. Kane has been talking about the need to win trophies and when you’re main man is saying that, you need to listen or he’ll be gone.

    However, the race for top 4 is as close as ever and we can’t afford to slip up there – miss out and a couple of star players are likely to depart (Toby? Alli?)

    Poch will have been told top 4 and CL are the priority for the TV money and the prestige. I’m sure he wants a cup but the dollar is king.

    The other point is, if he rests a couple of key players, we often struggle to beat anybody – look how we did without Eriksen…

    I’ll watch with interest.

    I think Taff might wet his pantaloons when he sees little Tommy Thumbs (Carrol) goal. 😱

    Wet them? They’re still f*ckin’ drenched, mate.

  • Sydknee February 6, 2018 at 11:56 pm

    I think we will have a strong team against Newport. Actually looking at our bench now I am more confident of the non-regulars then I was last season (except one of course).
    I am hoping Dier plays and then gets a rest for two weeks. He definitely should have one.

    • gus February 7, 2018 at 12:51 am

      He’s taken the mantle that Bonzo left, making at least one or two brainfarts a game. That through pass to Salah was a peach, shame he can’t make them to our guys

          MiT, I am not using him as a whipping boy if you don’t mind. I have rightly praised him in the past. The criticism is warranted and more in the vein that it may help him (that is, the rest or benching) get to where he was.

    The fact is we all know Poch all about anything
    And its possible that Poch and Dan know even less.
    There is a peanut seller at Tottenham who knows everything there is to know abput Tottenham but were afraid to ask.
    I like Harrys instigations and his attacking of the status quo. It keeps them on their toes. That is what the press is supposed to do some impropaganda instead of being an extension of the Spurs Programme.
    Push the fuckers to do better I say.

      13 shots to 9, Spurs favor. On target in Spurs favor as well.

      9 Spurs fouls to 15 Pool fouls.

      1 yellow Spurs to 3 yellows Pool.

      7 corners to 2 in Spurs favor.

      Honestly, it looks to me like Pool ought to be quite happy with a split.

                Now, I’ve read that both Alli and the girl appear to consent to being filmed. I’ve also read that he is tattoo free, so it’s old, and he’s young.

                If the girl is consensual, who is being disrespected? These are two young consensual beings in the 21st century doing hints that some people think is normal in the 21st century. It sure as shit isn’t normal in my world, but I also happen to personally know a young ex footballer (lower league) who filmed girls sucking him off etc. and then would try to show these videos to his own fucking brother, who was also, quite naturally disgusted.

                Don’t get me wrong, I think he is stupid as fuck for this. It is not classy by any stretch but these kids are working to a different template to us. They didn’t have to pop down the garage to buy a magazine to wank over, the internet is their friend, and they carry round mini computers with hi res cameras on them with which they can film themselves.

  • MiT February 6, 2018 at 7:48 pm

    I agree that some silverware needs to be eventually won to keep Spurs’ core group together. They have come perilously close to losing Alderweireld and Rose in addition to Walker.

    However, I believe that staying in Top 4 and CL for a 3rd straight campaign would be enough to hang on to the rest *for now.*

    After all, that is a show of consistent improvement after a season of upheaval and adjustment away from home. Larger pitch, different atmosphere, more motivation for away squads, and more away support.

    I agree that Daniel ‘half-a-seat’ Levy is a fan-milking, heavy-handed wanker who is guilty of not giving his deserving manager enough support. Firmly agree with the ‘slow burn’ assessment.

    I patently disagree with the recent articles condemning Poch to be a poor manager. The chemistry among these boys, and the steady vanquishing of the ‘spursy’ label, the 3rd and 2nd place finishes, the consistent strengthening of goal differential – these elements and more all point to a job being well done.

    Poch might be wise and well-served to bring in another coach skilled in movement off of the ball and a strength to break down packed defensive schemes. That much is glaring at times.

    As for a trophy being the end-all of the reason for support, that’s not for me. It has been a joy to watch the improvements over the last several seasons, to witness such a positive change in squad mentality… despite being somewhat hamstrung by the habits of Levy and the board.

    Expect consistent CL competition – the best the world can offer – and the steel for trophies will organically become a part of that.

    The FA Cup ? Would love to win it, but the game pieces have changed to make it it less of any necessary priority. Doesn’t the FA themselves have some culpability in tarnishing some of that luster ?

    • MiT February 6, 2018 at 8:13 pm

      The plights of a Wigan or a Wimbledon are completely different. They throw everything at the Cup, simply because they have no real design on any consistent higher opportunity. They sometimes might not know even which league they will be in over the next several seasons.

      My point being that they can throw everything at it due to often having less to lose.

              No glos I’m not although I would like to be

      • Harry Hotspur February 6, 2018 at 6:53 pm

        Is this available as a headstone? I like it!

        • Freund or Foe February 6, 2018 at 6:56 pm

          Pimp my headstone.

  • 61SpursNut🌰 February 6, 2018 at 6:34 pm

    Don’t worry lads, we’ll make to Wembley by the end of the season.

    • UnkleTaff February 6, 2018 at 6:39 pm

      Have we covered the “where will the semi-final be played if (sorry *when*) we make it that far” argument yet?

      • gloster1861 February 6, 2018 at 6:40 pm

        Cardiff?

      • Caspurs♿️ February 6, 2018 at 6:41 pm

        We’ll be drawn at home. 👍

      • 61SpursNut🌰 February 6, 2018 at 6:57 pm

        I’m all for Kiev as a warm up for the Champions League final.

  • richspurs February 6, 2018 at 6:33 pm

    In my opinion, Pocho does not have the big match temperament when the chips are down. He sort of freezes. Maybe it has changed vs Manure n the Poo. We will see.

    • SpurAndy 🍒π February 6, 2018 at 6:36 pm

      Like a slush puppy?

        Its a dogs life.

    Harry Hotspur

    UnkleTaff
    My dog escaped from my garden earlier today (a nigh impossible task, I’d’ve thought, but somehow he managed it). After an hour of driving around and alerting the neighbours I finally managed to track him down and bring him back home.
    If the smells coming out from under my desk are anything to go by he ate something extremely unsavoury during his brief period of freedom — and I’m due to be going out tonight.
    Really not looking forward to seeing what delights he’s left for me upon my return…

    Dog escapes are not fun.
    Bernie witnessed me go ‘full Basil Fawlty’ when he got out about 2 years ago.
    He now backs up when doors are opened.

    When I finally caught up with Oscar, even though I showed no signs of anger whatsoever, he was clearly afraid of me. My guess is that this was a regular event for the people who had him before me (who walloped him when they did get him back) and they eventually gave up looking for him which is how he ended up in a rescue centre.

    Their loss though as, today’s episode aside, he’s a bloody brilliant dog.

    • gloster1861 February 6, 2018 at 6:46 pm

      Plays the piano, tap dances, flushes the toilet…🐶

      • Freund or Foe February 6, 2018 at 6:49 pm

        That’s serious multitasking.

    • Still Nil Nil February 6, 2018 at 6:48 pm

      Ive got 3 Dogs, an 11 year old golden Labrador, a 3 year old black Labrador and a 1 year old German shepherd.

      All 3 are fantastic with very individual personalities.

      Mia (the German shepherd) a few days ago chewed the fuck out of my step son-in-laws right leather shoe which cost £140 (for the pair).

      He was livid and demanded recompense.

      He’s a bindipper ‘fan’.

      He didn’t get his £140.

      Wanker.

      Mia’s a VERY VERY good girl.

      • caveman February 6, 2018 at 6:50 pm

        Probably knew he was a bindipper. Intelligent doggy.

        • Still Nil Nil February 6, 2018 at 6:51 pm

          There were other shoes there.

          The others weren’t chomped on.

          His were even hidden under the others.

          She had to make efforts to find them.

          And she certainly found them!!!

      • UnkleTaff February 6, 2018 at 6:50 pm

        You leave your shoes where a dog can get them and you have no one to blame but yourself should anything happen to them.

        Your stepson-in-law gets no sympathy from me, either.

      • Freund or Foe February 6, 2018 at 6:51 pm

        Mia seems to have decent taste too! Good on her.

        • Still Nil Nil February 6, 2018 at 6:52 pm

          You’ve met her!

          She liked you.

          • Freund or Foe February 6, 2018 at 6:54 pm

            I told you, decent taste!

      • Caspurs♿️ February 6, 2018 at 6:51 pm

        Did you check to see if the shoes were stolen?

        • Still Nil Nil February 6, 2018 at 6:52 pm

          He went home on bricks.

          • Freund or Foe February 6, 2018 at 6:54 pm

            🤣🤣🤣

  • richspurs February 6, 2018 at 6:23 pm

    We will win the FA cup, semis in the CL and fifth in the league. Happy??.

    • Freund or Foe February 6, 2018 at 6:27 pm

      No. I want a full hard-on in the CL.

      • richspurs February 6, 2018 at 6:29 pm

        Then clamber in with Pocho under his coat.

      • gloster1861 February 6, 2018 at 6:29 pm

        Goes without sayin’.

    • gloster1861 February 6, 2018 at 6:28 pm

      It doesn’t matter if you win or lose, so long as you win.

      • richspurs February 6, 2018 at 6:30 pm

        Its important you dont lose or draw..

  • Mike Johnson February 6, 2018 at 6:22 pm

    Why was my comment deleted ?? Simple question – politely put ?

  • Matt February 6, 2018 at 6:22 pm

    All managers talk a load of nonsense. It’s what they do. I wouldn’t read too much into it. Break my heart if we lose those ambitious stars like Rose and we’re left with junk like Kane, Sanchez, Eriksen et al.

    • caveman February 6, 2018 at 6:44 pm

      100% Matt.

    • JackDLad February 6, 2018 at 6:46 pm

      Our old manager arry was the king of sh*t talk!

  • Mike Johnson February 6, 2018 at 6:17 pm

    Please advise a better manager for Spurs in the premiership era – and the criteria for your selection

    • Freund or Foe February 6, 2018 at 6:34 pm

      Jesus. A celebrity saviour with a great track record. How fucking good would he be!

    • Harry Hotspur February 6, 2018 at 6:41 pm

      Hi Mike,

      Please accept my apologies for not retrieving and prioritising your comment for a response from the spam file sooner. I was emptying the dishwasher.

      1. You advise one. And also advise your favourite ice-cream.
      2. I’ll need your criteria for both of the above.

      Alternatively, get the fuck over yourself and try at least, at the very least commentating on what was in the actual blog.

      • 61SpursNut🌰 February 6, 2018 at 6:58 pm

        Have you seen the new Star Trek yet, H?

  • Druid February 6, 2018 at 6:17 pm

    What the Hell is it with you people and your trophies? The FA Cup is an obligatory command performance. The team should make every effort to win, but should not risk doing well in their competitive leagues in order to hoist the FA Cup. I have been in many sports stadiums – seen many trophy cases and am yet to see a line up of people anxiously reading the inscriptions. I have a Used bric a brac shop near my home which has literally dozens of trophies of all kinds. If you give me an address; I’ll send you some. The value for fans, is seeing good football; hopefully winning but doing well in the leagues. Trophies are great for one afternoon.

    • gloster1861 February 6, 2018 at 6:21 pm

      So what are you saying? Only compete in league competitions and ignore cups competitions?

      • Freund or Foe February 6, 2018 at 6:23 pm

      • gloster1861 February 6, 2018 at 6:24 pm

        Try in the cups, just not too much?

      • Harry Hotspur February 6, 2018 at 6:48 pm

        It’s a druid.

    • Al February 6, 2018 at 9:52 pm

      It’s not clear but I assume this is satire?

  • gloster1861 February 6, 2018 at 6:14 pm

    Just a few more years pulling stupid faces Jurgen…

  • ronwol196061🇨🇦 February 6, 2018 at 6:11 pm

    Rotating is bullshit
    Picking the right players for Newport is not
    If we cant beat this lot using 60% first team 40% secondary then we dont have a squad

    • gloster1861 February 6, 2018 at 6:17 pm

      Agree with that RW. This game won’t be played on a ploughed field somehere in Middle Earth.
