One bone of contention has been this whole business with Fernando Llorente.

As ever I find myself confused with the various Β  e x p l a n a t i o n s Β  regarding his signing. One minute he’s the proven Premier League cavalry after the back to back balls ups that were Bobby Soldado and Vinny Janssen.

Then of course Fernando only plays when Harry Kane is in need of medical attention, so we actually bought him in order to being experience and wisdom to the dressing room.

The worst suggestion by far is that we bought him sight unseen and he landed ‘a bit unfit’ so he’ll need to time to address that situation.

Mauricio says he’s happy with the lad, so nothing to see here then…

    Fernando is fucking GEORGEOUS for a pensioner.

      George who?

    I was talking to Real Fan? t’other day, and he was saying how he’d like to see Kane and Llorente playing with each other, maybe with one probing in the hole, getting stuck in in the box, and the other sniffing out loose balls and giving them a good leathering.

    I don’t know. Fanny knows a lot more about that sort of thing than me.

      They cavorted rather well in Madrid.

    • gloster1861 November 27, 2017 at 3:53 pm

      I’m sure Llorente would service Kane in the box…

      • gloster1861 November 27, 2017 at 3:56 pm

        And the dressing room, hotel room, bath, coach…

        • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack November 27, 2017 at 4:02 pm

          ……centre circle….

      • daytripper November 29, 2017 at 3:41 pm

        I wholeheartedly agree. Llorente wins every header, he just needs time for Kane and Dele to get on the same page as him.

  • Spurs est_1882 November 27, 2017 at 3:35 pm

    We bought a player willing to sit on the bench, but able to score when called. No player wants to come and fight against Kane, so unless we position ourselves in a way that players come to us just to be world class bench warmers (so win HUGE honours or pay HUGE wages) we will always suffer this gulf when we have a fantastic first choice player in a limited role.

    Missed the last few blogs as still digesting the holiday turkey.

    Upon review I see the annual plaintive bleating about necessary January upgrades has commenced.

    Help out a stranger to these shores: when was the last significant improvement to the squad in January? What year? What century?

    • SpurAndy πŸ’Ο€ November 27, 2017 at 3:20 pm

      Fakinel he must need some sort of fixed scaffolding support if it goes from 15 inches to 35!πŸ˜‚

        That’s what she said

    • Spurs est_1882 November 27, 2017 at 3:38 pm

      Its FIXED – Wenger moans about the Ref and then gets all decisions for the following weeks, happens every year!

  • Accy November 27, 2017 at 3:16 pm

    Facks me right off that we bought the galoot.

    Pissing about with strikers AGAIN.

  • πŸ’‹ November 27, 2017 at 3:16 pm

    Yep. Only a dufus can’t see Llorentes use to the squad.

    He may not have shown it yet, but he will.

    Quality, experience and a fabulous complexion. Anyway that’s enough about Fanny …

    • Accy November 27, 2017 at 3:19 pm

      utter nonsense mate. He’s garbage. Another garbage buy.

      • DAVID November 27, 2017 at 3:24 pm

        Bit harsh, I thought Fanny was ok.

        • DAVID November 27, 2017 at 3:29 pm

          In small doses.

      • πŸ’‹ November 27, 2017 at 3:29 pm

        Yes, you keep saying that. Must be true then. Better tell Poch that our (currently) most decorated player is garbage.

        • Accy November 27, 2017 at 3:37 pm

          Spurts I don’t understand what you like about him?

          Would he get in the team at City? – Nah
          Would he get in the team at Utd? – Nah
          Would he get in the team at Chelsea? – Nah
          Would he get in the team at Arsenal? – Nah
          Would he get in the team at Liverpool? – Nah

          Would he get in the team at West Ham? – Probably

          Does he get in the team at Spurs? – A bit

          • πŸ’‹ November 27, 2017 at 3:45 pm

            You’re asking the wrong questions, of course. Try these:

            Did Spurs buy him to be the number 1 striker – Nah
            Did Spurs buy him to fill in for Kane when required – Yah

            Llorente is a quality, experienced player willing to take a back seat for the good of the squad.

            Is Vorm garbage – Nah

            See how it works.

            • Accy November 27, 2017 at 3:57 pm

              I’ve always wondered whether there was somebody in the world who was the complete opposite to me and my little thoughts in every single way. It turns out it’s you! We’ve found each other!

              FYI – I wear Onitsukas.

              • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack November 27, 2017 at 4:00 pm

                You should both combine and become more powerful than anyone can possibly imagine.

                • Accy November 27, 2017 at 4:02 pm

                  Such a combination would create ‘anti-matter’ and be classed as a threat to humanity… Dan Brown would write a novel about it.

                  • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack November 27, 2017 at 4:06 pm

                    And Ewan McGregor would play the resulting being in the movie.
