Gladys tells me that the fall out from Saturday lasted well after the game and recommenced a pace on Monday.

Whatever Poch said publicly about character building wasn’t the half of it. He wasn’t happy and the players had a frank exchange of views with him and each other.

Is that it then, the amor has been cleared and it’s now all all systems go?

Chance would be a fine thing however while Spurs have been in a coma, the opposition have been well and truly at it.

Sam Allardyce hans;t mucked about: “We’re not getting too carried away. Delivering 13 points from a possible 15 is an outstanding feat from where we came from and what position we were in.” Weren’t;t they written off? They couldn’t have got the memo. Suddenly the Toffees are 6 points behind us.

Leicester City have been quite storing the away the points. Their recent 0-3 fiasco at home to Palace ended a 5 game unbeaten run that included us.

Immediately above us are Burnley. I wonder what fault Spurs fans will find with them? They too lost just one game in their last 6.

And so to the Arsenal.  Just two wins from their ;last half dozen games has been just enough to keep us and anyone else at bay. Until now. Christmas scheduling will shine a more intense light upon them.

Liverpool rather irritatingly appear to have got their act together. Their unbeaten of 9 games goes back to bizarrely the first game after we whupped ’em 4-1 in October.

Chelsea and the two Manchester Clubs are not going to implode, disband or otherwise. So it the competition for that last Champions League spot consists of us and handful of other unreliable sides all vying for a chance.

Spurs to win the Champions League? The bookies don’t believe so. We’re priced at somewhere between two and three times less likely to win than the usual suspects.

Any positive forecast requires something rather seismic to occur.

    Just received a real kick in the bollocks overnight. Mate I served with was unexpectedly taken from us last night. Gutted is an understatement…so long Jimmy, save a spot for me in the trench at the final RV.

        What I mean is I don’t expect the home points haul to be as good as it was at WHL in the last few seasons.

        We are better at Wembley now but still us dropping more unexpected points there than at the old place.

        Sorry, have I spoken out of turn?

    Dear father cocacola please can you make it possible for Daddy and his favourite football team to win something. The Champions league would be nice as Mr. P has said that it’s what the team is focused upon and the Premiership title that Mr. P would also like to have won looks destined to some other little girls wishes who’s daddy supports the lesser manc scum bags.
    Please can you also make it so that Daddy’s team finish above the arse again.
    Mommy says that she likes it above the arse also.

        They can buy anything they want.

        Does my head in when the media cream their pance over Pep. The money they’ve spent is insane, it was the same with Maureen.

        Neither of them have ever managed a club that wasn’t financially dominant in their respective leagues.

        Let alone the bottom half of the table teams, I reckon both Guardiola and Maureen would do no better at Spurs or Liverpool than Poch or Klopp. Possibly worse.

        Can’t stand either of them but Guardiola’s football is better to watch. Both arrogant pricks…

    A little over 6 weeks ago we were on top,of the World Ma !

    “I speak every day with Daniel, and you feel how he cares about everything,” Pochettino says. “It is impossible not to feel proud about the future of Tottenham. Daniel is driving the project. A few weeks ago, we were at the new stadium with the architect, and you sensed that it was not an empty structure, but that there was soul, love, that people cared about every detail. Before I arrived at Tottenham, I heard, ‘It is so difficult to have a relationship with Daniel’. But I discovered a great man.”

    For now, the results enable this level of gushing. The humbling of Real, so soon after a 4-1 demolition of Liverpool, invites predictions that Tottenham – who in three full league campaigns under Pochettino have finished fifth, third and second – could yet muster a title challenge.

    The Long Good SPURTSday 💋

    Perhaps I’m in the minority but I happen to think Dele will prove he is more interested in his football career than the other stuff, after all he got a contract at Spurs and a starting berth for England before all this ‘brand’ nonsense.

    Let’s face it, who amongst us, when given access to attractive loose chicks and untold wealth wouldn’t be distracted?

    As a 16 year old I had a chance at pro football (lower league, at the time) but I was distracted by other things, so I know some of the pressures he may be facing. Although, my distractions were drug abuse, homelessness, poverty and junk food, but still, it’s the same difference.

    Dele will turn out just fine. It may not be until he’s 40, but he’ll be okay.

    The born again 40 year old c*nt.

    Cannot wait.

  • 1882 December 19, 2017 at 4:27 pm

    I think it had to be a huge discussion, this was a disgrace of a performance. I agree about your opinion of the other teams too, Everton had a bad patch and sacked their manager, can we honestly say our bad patch has been a lot better? Burnely have been great, but could you watch that every week? I sure as hell couldn’t – its just the question, are points worth more than entertainment? Not that we have delivered either, even the 5-1 at Stoke was not great.

      Yup. Dele must be pissed this is hurtin his brand.

      • The Long Good SPURTSday 💋 December 19, 2017 at 3:48 pm

        Perhaps I’m in the minority but I happen to think Dele will prove he is more interested in his football career than the other stuff, after all he got a contract at Spurs and a starting berth for England before all this ‘brand’ nonsense.

        Let’s face it, who amongst us, when given access to attractive loose chicks and untold wealth wouldn’t be distracted?

        As a 16 year old I had a chance at pro football (lower league, at the time) but I was distracted by other things, so I know some of the pressures he may be facing. Although, my distractions were drug abuse, homelessness, poverty and junk food, but still, it’s the same difference.

        Dele will turn out just fine. It may not be until he’s 40, but he’ll be okay.

        • Lilywhite December 19, 2017 at 4:06 pm

          I don’t totally disagree, he’s a just a kid. And I think his football career will probably flourish too. With us though?

        • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? December 19, 2017 at 3:55 pm

          Oh yeah, its important but I meant its now a mandatory achievement for us cos of the pressure of the “brave new world” we’ve been plunged into. You don’t want to see what non champions league looks like in that 60’000 seater, plus all the other uncertaintys that would bring.

  • Hartley December 19, 2017 at 12:45 pm

    I believe that we will be relegated, lose all our players, never finish the stadium and move in with Orient.

    • Freund or Foe December 19, 2017 at 12:47 pm

      Fantastic! I can get to Leyton in around 30 minutes!

    • Harry Hotspur December 19, 2017 at 12:47 pm

      That bit about Orient is bollocks

      • Freund or Foe December 19, 2017 at 12:47 pm

        Dammit.

          Enfield it is then.

          • Freund or Foe December 19, 2017 at 12:51 pm

            Thanks fuck we bought those fields.

      • 61SpursNut🌰 December 19, 2017 at 12:48 pm

        I s’pose Gladys told you that?

    • Limerick AL December 19, 2017 at 1:03 pm

      But still win the CL ! On Penalties.

  • BARD December 19, 2017 at 12:41 pm

    There’s a fair chance we’ll actually finish outside of the top 6 IMO.

  • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? December 19, 2017 at 12:40 pm

    I was always sure Everton would sort themselves out. Sam is a good leader for them and they have a couple of potentially great youngsters. Ingredients are all there with they added bonus that they have their grand old fortress in tact. I had a quiet nervous bet with myself that Everton would still finish above us after they came back from 2 down v Watford a month or so back. Indeed everyone’s at it, its going to be a slog.

    • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? December 19, 2017 at 12:42 pm

      * the added bonus

    • OrganicPaper December 19, 2017 at 12:55 pm

      I have to admit, I though Rooney was a spent force long ago. He has really stepped up lately and is driving that team. We could do with a leader like that

      • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? December 19, 2017 at 1:21 pm

        Yep. You can tell he feels he owes the blue half of Merseyside something.

    The toffies could mount a bit of a challenge for 4th but I hope their biggest impact will be to take points off our rivals (sadly probably us too). Liverpool are for me, the most likely to get the 4th spot with the sheer brutal force of their front line and I expect they will strengthen at the back in January

    • Freund or Foe December 19, 2017 at 12:39 pm

      This time last season Liverpool were being lauded as potential title challengers. 40 points, 2nd place, 6 off Chelsea, 7 points ahead of us. Things change, form changes. Liverpool could go on with their current form and challenge for 2nd, they could have a blip and struggle to get a Europa spot. Suggestions that we’re doomed to a battle for 7th are a bit premature.

      • OrganicPaper December 19, 2017 at 12:54 pm

        For sure things change very quickly with form. The case in point above, Everton, show just that. Thing is with the bin dippers is they have such a great attack, they can IMO really go up another gear and push on. I dont think we will be battling for 7th, battling for 4th definitely but im questioning how up for the fight our lot are..

        • Freund or Foe December 19, 2017 at 12:57 pm

          Fair dinkum.

        • UnkleTaff December 19, 2017 at 1:33 pm

          Liverpool have dropped four points in their last two home games.

          • Freund or Foe December 19, 2017 at 1:41 pm

            Shut it Unk.

          • Harry Hotspur December 19, 2017 at 2:03 pm

            They’ve dropped 6 points in their last 3 home games.

            • UnkleTaff December 19, 2017 at 2:31 pm

              Perhaps they should consider playing their home games at Wembley?

          • Aussie in Switzerland December 19, 2017 at 4:07 pm

            I’m about to drop a shit

      • Willy Juice December 19, 2017 at 1:07 pm

        Premature but accurate

        • Freund or Foe December 19, 2017 at 1:09 pm

          That makes incredible sense.

          • The Long Good SPURTSday 💋 December 19, 2017 at 3:35 pm

            Incredible but ludicrous.
