Joy of joys. What does recovering from humbling mean? You’re not answering the doorbell, you switched your mobile phone to airplane mode and you spend much of the day in the foetal position beneath your kitchen table with the blinds drawn?

This smacks of faux penitence.

In fact it stinks the place out with faux self-condemnation because to display otherwise would make it look like the fans who had to suffer the ignominy of the West Ham game were stooges. Which of course, they were.

    First time ever on Tramadol, seems to be doing what it says on the leaflet, Surgeon says i shouldn’t drive for 3 weeks for insurance purposes, is that right ? Seems a bit extreme. 3 days i would think.

      Be careful Raz, it is very addictive.

      • Mad Carew October 28, 2017 at 9:48 am

        50mg every 4 hours for pain relief, they’ve only given me enough for 6 days, came home yesterday felt great but they had pumped a lot of pain killer in, by 5am this morning it feels like i’ve been stabbed in the groin.

              You need to avoid stress. Don’t follow the game. Any iffy refereeing decisions (which are likely to be plentiful at OT) could mess with you.

              • Mad Carew October 28, 2017 at 10:05 am

                It’ll make my day if we can turn them over at OT, Won’t be jumping up for our goals though !

                • Sexy Beast October 28, 2017 at 10:17 am

                  A few days from now and you will be pain free, hopefully sooner rather then later, and here is hoping Spurs will ease the pain a bit today.

                      Hope you feel better Raz……In the 70’s I had a vasectomy. After I had it done I felt no pain at all.It was near noon when I got to work and went with a couple of of the guys for lunch feeling good….during lunch I started to feel a pain and gradually it felt like someone kicked me in the bollocks. I hung in a bit then left and drove home with excruciating pain…got a fucking ticket on the Don Valley Parkway if you can believe me and Im in agony

  • Mad Carew October 28, 2017 at 7:13 am

    Without Harry Kane their CM will have a much easier game but Spurs should still win this one by 2-1, Llorente and Eriksen to score, not just a one man team Pep. COYS

    Who thinks Kane is actually just being held back for Real Madrid on Wednesday?

    I think he could face ManUre but is being protected. Possibly due to fatigue.

    • Horndog 馃嚭馃嚫 October 27, 2017 at 11:42 pm

    • East Stand October 28, 2017 at 12:14 am

      It could be a case of weighing up which game is more crucial Glost. I would have thought that Manure would be more important but perhaps Poch feels that Wembley could affect league form more than Continental games.

      Perhaps he feels that putting in two great performances against Real can be a springboard to fancy ourselves for the C.L and also the league.

      Beat the best and then you’ve raised the bar and it’s important for the developing mentality of the squad.

  • Matt October 27, 2017 at 7:44 pm

    Did I miss the memo that said Harry K has to be flogged for the full 90 every game? Southgate and Poch do it. What was Harry doing making lung busting runs in the 85th minute when we were 3 up against Liverpool? Take him off at 75 mins if we鈥檙e comfortable. And Southgate is bloody worse he鈥檇 still have him playing him in the U21 and U18s as well as the senior squad if he was allowed.

    • The Central Scrutinizer. October 27, 2017 at 8:10 pm

      Poch should take a leaf out of Sir Alex’s book and tell Southgate a few home truths. Poch should also use his loaf and bring on subs to actually help the side and not as a joke, IE we are 4-1 up against Pool and Kane is still running himself into despair.

  • Frontwheel 2 October 27, 2017 at 7:42 pm
