Tottenham Hotspur

Soporific Midget Predicts A Draw

Soporific Midget Predicts A Draw

Michael Owen said: “Swansea have never beaten Spurs in the Premier League but I feel they will pick up a point at the Liberty.

“Both sides have scored in all five previous Premier League meetings between the clubs and I expect that trend to continue midweek.”

At time of blogging there’s barely 10 hours until Spurs face the Welsh in Wales. We will have to will assess  Victor Wanyama(back), but Harry Winks (ankle) will definitely miss out.

Owen’s prediction flies in the face of the form book. Spurs have faced the Swans over ten times in the Premier League, they have their highest win rate (82%) and goals-per-match average (2.6) against them.

    We can go 14 points clear of Arsenal after tonights games !
    3-1 seems the best option with Eriksen bagging the first.
    Ain’t no stopping us now !

    Allo all. Exciting times in store for the believing and the brave. Will we buckle like blerry bastard buffoons or will we seize the moment. Seven points could be cut to four then to one by Sat afternoon. Im just happy if we win, regardless of the Cheatski result. My money is on a hard fought, grinding, nail biting, from-behind-the -sofa type 1-2 victory. Long may the force flow with us, or at least till the season end. Coyspuuurrrsss

  • Jan Vertiginous April 5, 2017 at 2:10 pm

    A tiresome dwarf from the adenoidal estuary.

    Let’s play Who Should We Buy In The Summer.
    Pamela is majorly doubtful and Sissoko is shit as were Njie and Nkoudou so a couple
    of decent attacking mids are needed. Jansen is I’m unproven so at least one more striker too. Maybe a backup centre mid for the waning Dembele, sometime centreback Dier, injured Winks and legend Wanyama.
    Defence looks alright.

    • ronwol196061 April 5, 2017 at 2:30 pm

      NKoudoo played less time than a You Tube clip

      • Panama Paul April 5, 2017 at 2:33 pm

        They’re trying to keep it that way so that his highlights reel looks exiting, thereby maximizing the re-sale value.

        • Panama Paul April 5, 2017 at 2:33 pm

          ^exciting (sorry Ron)

    • ronwol196061 April 5, 2017 at 2:32 pm

      I would try Sissoko at the Dembele position before we get rid of him

      • gloster1861 April 5, 2017 at 3:13 pm

        The guy can’t even trap a stationary ball. He’d be hopeless in there. At least he can’t do too much damage playing up front. Same can’t be said at DM.

  • ronwol196061 April 5, 2017 at 1:57 pm

    Do we have more than three fit players?

    • TheCincinnatiYid April 5, 2017 at 2:08 pm

      11 should fit on the pitch.

      • Caspurs♿️ April 5, 2017 at 2:14 pm

        Not if Sissoko’s playing..

        • TheCincinnatiYid April 5, 2017 at 2:16 pm

          If Sissy’s playing. . . .board up all plate glass windows within half mile of Liberty Stadium. Footballs will leave the grounds at warp speed.

          • Caspurs♿️ April 5, 2017 at 2:18 pm

            The game would only last 30 minutes before Swansea ran outta replacement balls.

            • Caspurs♿️ April 5, 2017 at 2:19 pm

              How your good lady Cinci, hope all is good with you and yours.

              • TheCincinnatiYid April 5, 2017 at 2:20 pm

                This is getting murkier and murkier but I feel more and more confident and less and less pessimistic.

                Will we fucking smash the fucking bastards 3-1? I dunno.

                • Caspurs♿️ April 5, 2017 at 2:21 pm

                  I only asked how you woz…

                  • ronwol196061 April 5, 2017 at 2:27 pm

                    That was your mistake Cas you should have asked how she is

              • TheCincinnatiYid April 5, 2017 at 2:23 pm

                Cas–Thanks for asking. You are an arborist of the highest quality. We are down to her wearing a back brace intermittently and she drove the car yesterday for first time in five months–without significant deficit to her back, local school children and street signs. things are looking way up.

                Hope all well at your end as well.

                • ronwol196061 April 5, 2017 at 2:25 pm

          • ronwol196061 April 5, 2017 at 2:20 pm

            Even though he is the Jermaine Jenas of his time I think he can turn it around with some good coaching.I would tell him to slow it down a bit
            He is running twice as fast as he did in that Euro game and about 10% of its effectiveness. Slow it down and he could be a winner

            • Caspurs♿️ April 5, 2017 at 2:25 pm

              He makes Jenas look like Messi ffs!
              10%?! To be more accurate, he’s got 10% of the brain capacity of the average football player.
              Taxi for Sissoko!

              • ronwol196061 April 5, 2017 at 2:28 pm

  • ronwol196061 April 5, 2017 at 1:55 pm

    I have a dichotomy of confidence and ambivalence regarding this game but overall we should fucking smash the bastards 3-1

    • Caspurs♿️ April 5, 2017 at 1:57 pm

      So you’re confidently ambivalent, smashing!

      • ronwol196061 April 5, 2017 at 1:57 pm

        and not smashing

      • ronwol196061 April 5, 2017 at 1:58 pm

        Im more ambivalently confident

        • Caspurs♿️ April 5, 2017 at 2:01 pm

          If I wasn’t so ambivalent I’d say with confidence you were a semantic so and so..

          • ronwol196061 April 5, 2017 at 2:14 pm

            That would be an anti semantic comment methinks but would never say that

        In Japan they would fail you for that.Its not the answer they want but the right process
        and they also think we should smash the fucking bastards 3-1

    Miles Storey’s astonishing goal-line miss in Aberdeen’s victory against Inverness CT – http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/scotland/39500209

    • UnkleTaff April 5, 2017 at 12:42 pm

      I saw this earlier. I think it has to rate as the worst miss I’ve ever seen.

      • SpurAndy 🍒π April 5, 2017 at 1:18 pm

        I have seen a worse one where the guy was again a yard out in front of goal. Ball bounced gently to him and somehow kicked it parallel with the goal line and hit the corner flag. Wish I could find it on tinternet, it was ball achingly funny.

        • UnkleTaff April 5, 2017 at 1:27 pm

          I think I’ve managed to find an even worse miss:

          • SpurAndy 🍒π April 5, 2017 at 1:33 pm

            Yep, that’s gotta be the winner, winner chicken dinner. Unless of course it was deliberate 🤔

          • Caspurs♿️ April 5, 2017 at 1:42 pm

            How?! It’s so awful it defies the laws of physics.

            • SpurAndy 🍒π April 5, 2017 at 1:52 pm

              Commentary sounded Ruski, so all bets as to fair play are off imo 🙂

      • Spurstacus 💋 April 5, 2017 at 3:45 pm

        Even worse than the one where a certain young chap, prone to inexplicably falling over, was through on goal and inexplicably fell over as he took a shot?

        • UnkleTaff April 5, 2017 at 4:05 pm

          It’s neither big nor clever to laugh at people who fall over.

  • Horndog April 5, 2017 at 11:59 am

    The best day, of my 40+ years as a Spurs fan, was the last time we played Swansea. Every moment is permanently etched into my pea brain. As is the comraderie and friendships made over the course of that journey. Cheers to all involved and COYS!

  • Spursy April 5, 2017 at 11:39 am

    Danny Murphy is almost in physical torment to allow a Spurs compliment to fall from his lips. Always follows it with a “but moan, moan, moan”.

    • Caspurs♿️ April 5, 2017 at 11:41 am

      Another idiot..The scouse have so many they’re spoilt for choice!

    • SpurAndy 🍒π April 5, 2017 at 12:53 pm

      Sorry Spursy but tbh I quite like Murphy, compared to some anyway. I think the point is that any decent pundit/critic has to use historic data to base an opinion on. Even the most die hard Tottenham fans have to agree to some extent that we have a history of cocking things up. So until we actually start winning things I would’nt personally be to harsh on them. Although to exclude us from the title race at this stage is sheer lunacy so anyone doing that should be locked up.

  • Blanchflower April 5, 2017 at 11:31 am

    It’s a strange Liverpool thing. The ex players think that by predicting spurs will always lose (or in this case draw) and Liverpool will always win, then it might happen.

    My favorite example of all time was during Football Focus this year at around third round of FA cup when Lawrenson was asked who was in the chase for the title. ‘Three horse race’ he said ‘ between Chelsea, City and Liverpool’. Tottenham were 2nd in the league at that time. Jaw dropping.

  • Still Nil Nil April 5, 2017 at 10:50 am

    Can’t get complacent now.
    Spurs should win, but it ain’t a given with at least 3 ex Spurs with a point to prove.
    If they don’t go out there treating Swansea like they did the racists at home, then a surprise is in the offing.
    Professionalism is a must tonight.

    • Panama Paul April 5, 2017 at 10:54 am

      Evenin’ all. We need to get into them from the off. No half measures.

    2-1 to us tonight. Eriksen and Toby to score with Gilf getting a late consolation free kick. In other news, we’re now 3-1 to sign Sanchez… wouldn’t that just be hilarious

    • Panama Paul April 5, 2017 at 10:52 am

      Sanchez will likely depart to Chelsea because money talks. And we’re talking lots of money. Sadly its a language Levy does not comprehend too well.

    • UnkleTaff April 5, 2017 at 11:12 am

      Sanchez is a liability. He looks a world beater when what he tries comes off, but he concedes possession far too often for my liking. Have a look at his passing stats — they’re amongst the worst in the league. For a team whose game is based on possession play he’d be a terrible acquisition.

      • Caspurs♿️ April 5, 2017 at 11:45 am

        Sanchez WILL NOT sign for Spurs, it’ll never happen, his wage demands rule us out straight away, so lettuce forget this nonsense.
        Fankyu. 😘
