Subliminally Sublime

Subliminally Sublime

Another walloping at White Hart Lane from a Spurs side that were almost as synchronised as the soppy goal celebrations.

Bizarrely, Watford weren’t as advertised, and what was supposed to be an injury ravaged hatch-potch turned out to be a team bolstered by new blood. It may sound a strange comment to make, buy Watford didn’t deserve to lose to anyone 4-0 today.

If we’ve learned anything from these last two games, it’s that esprit de corps Poch has managed to manifest is quite something to behold.

The 4-2-3-1 wasn’t great, or maybe it was the absence of the regularly imperious Wanyama. It felt like the bulk of the first half consisted of Mousa trying to disguise the fact that there was a rather large Welcome mat in the middle of the park. However the quality of the teamwork out the limitation of the shape.

A cynic might suggest that we are winning despite ourselves. Yet again, this is a hallmark of champions. Being so good, that you don’t actually have to be faultless.

Our Shooting Boots were another example of this. The lads weren’t wearing the best pairs in the shop, but the quality of the goals was immense and there were four of them!

Returning to the team-work for a moment, picking a MOTM was on a par with picking your favourite twin.

Trippier, Toby, Verts and Davies were all equally immense but you might be inclined to tip your hat to Trippier on the basis that he created 4 chances, made one assist and was an all round busy little bar-steward.

Dele Alli with his 16 goals has now equalled the sainted Steven Gerrard’s best ever Premier League goal tally.

Gerrard played 16 seasons to achieve that by the way – whereas the boy Alli is currently 20 years old.

Player ratings and and more measured gushing to follow.

      ah blimey this blog has exploded now that you know how to ghify, dont let ronwol know how to do this

  • richspurs April 8, 2017 at 9:53 pm

    A few thingys. Well done to the lads. we played two good halves of footie for a change, althougn we coulda poked a few more goals. Goal difference may just prove decisive. We seemed to pity the Hornets in the second half and that is unprofessional. Hows about experimenting with Bonzo at right back and Trippier at right wing, just thinking outa the box here.
    there will be a few twist and turns and my feeling is that this time we will be ready and take sdvantage, seems like the senior boys in the side are really dtepping up and the leadership i crave is manifesting itself out there.

    Our last 10 games form guide is the same as Chelsea, W7, D2, L1. If for once we could start our season without the usual pre-season burnout, the kerfuffle with late transfers, would we have gained 7 more points?…just saying..

  • Freünd or Foe April 8, 2017 at 9:19 pm

    Honestly, I can’t tell you how, but I just got home.

  • Spursy April 8, 2017 at 9:09 pm

            Dele’s goal, was a goal…

  • BIGS April 8, 2017 at 8:53 pm

    trips’s right foot needs to be scientifically analyzed in a lab…….how does one cross a ball on the volley so fecking good…. SURELY SOME LAW OF PHYSICS IS BEING FECKED WITH

  • melcyid April 8, 2017 at 8:46 pm

    how is walker gonna get back in? tripps gave a lesson in crossing the ball today. should be a how to video for sale.

  • Spursy April 8, 2017 at 8:45 pm

    We saw the game from when Dier scored. We looked pretty darn good. An amazingly well drilled outfit with strong foundations and delicious creativity. The total is greater than the sum of its parts.

  • BIGS April 8, 2017 at 8:44 pm

    is it me or does trippier get an assist every time he plays….bonzo has 5 and trips with only 3 starts has 4 Southgate I hope you saw this today

  • Lilywhite without the II April 8, 2017 at 8:41 pm

    Back from the game. Our midfield struggled to get control of the game for the first 20mins or so. Both Yan and Tobe’s played very well and credit to Tripplite today, thought he was great. The main difference between the teams in the first half was we scored quality goals, they broke well but with little effect I felt for Janseen a little, he was making some great runs but no one was really looking up to pass through. The 2nd half was well controlled and could have been 6 or 7 nil but in most parts was flat as you would expect. Lovely day out in the sun and a great result, happy days…

  • melcyid April 8, 2017 at 8:41 pm

    I hope Mr Hotspur takes full responsibility for the drunken drivel on the previous blog,I had a hard time interpratating it from this side of the world.

    • 61SpursNut🌰 April 8, 2017 at 8:51 pm

      Our work is done. 😂🤣

  • BIGS April 8, 2017 at 8:40 pm

    my biggest fear now is that sonny boy might be off in the summer…….
    poch really knew what he was doing when he convinced him to stick around this season. could we have 3 players going 20 goals this season? looks that way lads

  • 61SpursNut🌰 April 8, 2017 at 8:37 pm

    I shall return tomorrow with a less pissed bonce.

    Suffice it to say, a good day was had by all in my company.

    And I hate Chelscum.

  • Caspurs♿️ April 8, 2017 at 8:36 pm

    They deserved to lose 6-0, endov!

    • melcyid April 8, 2017 at 8:38 pm

      agreed,they were potential ankle snappers and deserved the the trouncing they got.

  • Superspoz 🏆 April 8, 2017 at 8:28 pm

    “It may sound a strange comment to make, buy Watford didn’t deserve to lose to anyone 4-0 today.”

    Yes you’re right. It does sound like a strange comment.

  • Sid Trotter April 8, 2017 at 8:11 pm

    It was a great performance, and I agree, the espirit de corps is there to be seen and tasted, it is running through each and every one of them and Poch clearly is the instigator of it – so good for him, good for us – and lets keep the criticism in the box till we start playing crap again. Then it’ll be over due but let’s savour the positivity while it lasts.

    Trippier, so that’s what he does – and doesn’t he do it well. He was MoM for sure.

    And even though the scum won, and we won’t catch them, imagine coming 2nd, and imagine Arse not in CL, imagine Manure having a tantrum. Heady days, let’s enjoy them

    • Frontwheel 2 April 8, 2017 at 8:28 pm

      Nicely put.

      • Superspoz 🏆 April 8, 2017 at 8:30 pm

        Sid, you there? Someone’s hacked your account mate?

    • Hotspur April 8, 2017 at 8:29 pm

      Yes indeed. Well said Syd!
