Enjoy this clippage for as long as the vagaries of the Interwebs allows.

Belgian had their work cut out against the frequently simulating and routinely brutish Tunisians.

Revisionists who fleetingly plagued this blog will put this pass down to a lucky long ball or some-such.

If that’s you, then I feel sorry for you.

This is the World Cup and at time of blogging this a Tottenham player demonstrating why he’s worth market rate.

This somewhat frames the England form from their first game against this mob.

Panama was a great Van Halen song, but will it be great viewing tomorrow?

    Sterling starts. Sick of this nonsensical circus. Either there’s brand business involved or Southgate is beyond help and needs institutionalising.

      Iโ€™d go with Rashford and certainly Rose over Youngs. Iโ€™m not Dannyโ€™s greatest cheerleader but Youngโ€™s cutting in on his right is too predictable. Alli when back is the only person capable of picking a pass to Kane.

      A fair and equal report from the BBC? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
      He may have been stupid, he may deserve to be punished, but he is doing 23.5 hours a day solitary confinement for reporting on crimes committed by pedofiles.
      Rightly or wrongly it is called free speech imo, when that is taken away all journalists have a moral duty to stand up to protect the Tommy Robinsonโ€™s of this world.
      Donโ€™t ever expect one from the BBC to do this, they are repeaters not reporters.

    Here’s a heart warming quote from the comments section of a stadium video…

    “Those shops will sure need to be knocked down near the western entrance or theyl look out of place with this fantastic stadium”

    Now I believe it wasn’t sarcasm. Its lovely some Spurs fans are so directly concerning themselves with the destruction of peoples livelihoods in order to have this brave new world realised. Gives one a fuzzy felling inside.๐Ÿ˜

            sorry, I miss read your post….there was such a great opportunity for ENIC to blend the locals into the stadium but alas…what they should’ve done was make the new “market place” a place to provide low rent to the locals to sell their food..how cool would that be..

            • Tappaspur June 23, 2018 at 10:26 pm
