Mousa Sissoko is now talking as if he is a man with a future at Tottenham Hotspur Football Club. Even though he’s introduced a little artistic license.

“This season is totally different because I had the pre-season with the team,” he said. “Last season I signed at the last minute and didn’t have the pre-season, so it was difficult.”

Er… I thought you didn’t fly to the States because you had a virus? 

“Now I feel good and ready to fight like everyone, and try to give my best for the team. I hope I will do well this season and we will all do well in the league, in the Champions League and in the cups.

“The manager gave me my chance (against Everton) and I tried to give my best. I think I did well, like all the team, so I’m happy. When you start you’re always happy.

“I had some chances but I didn’t score. That’s football, so I hope my goal will come soon. But the most important thing was to have a good game.”

The jury may be out on Sissy, but I’m not. I still can’t fathom what the footballing reasons were for buying him. Whilst he’s seeing more of the ball than he has done, he’s still doing nothing of any note with the damn thing.

I keep hearing mumbles that he didn’t do that badly and that he was quite good. This is all rather embarrassing and on a direct par with the Levy fanatics that believe were a well run club because we haven’t gone bust.

At £95,000 a week the money would be better invested if we spent it on cut flowers.

  • East Stand September 12, 2017 at 9:47 am

    If we are being totally honest none of us expected Sissy to be such an abject failure as he has been. The feeling seemed to be that he’s a big lad, had a decent Euros, Poch will utilise him.

    My feeling is that he’s a player that will put his back into it when he can be bothered. The Euros wasn’t an illusion, he played well and all this stuff about pre season doesn’t excuse him looking off the pace after several months of training at the club.

    He’s not a wide player, Poch didn’t want to disrupt the harmony in the central midfield area to accommodate him. Lamela had that horrendous hip injury (that we all remember clearly) and Sissy got a few chances on the right and he was shit.

    The more important question in all of this is why would Poch sign a player like this for that kind of money and wages that isn’t a natural fit? Perhaps HE didn’t?

    When you think that our best player Toby is pondering not being offered a new deal when he’s on half the wage of Sissy. Well run club…

    • OrganicPaper September 12, 2017 at 9:56 am

      Sissy definitely only plays when he wants. I actually think a lot of people had seen how turd he was up at Toon and questioned this signing. Smacked of a Levy deal not a Poch one.

      The only thing we have in our favor, and I think we are already seeing it in the slight improvements, is that its a wold cup year and he wants to be in the France squad. Lets hope he has a decent season, decent WC and we can shift him on next summer.

      • East Stand September 12, 2017 at 10:42 am

        At least you could blame Arry for bringing in Ade, who’s to blame for this particular sack of shit?

    • SpurAndy 🍒π September 12, 2017 at 10:08 am

      Is there really a chance Toby won’t be offered a new deal? First I’ve heard of it and worrying if true.

      • AccringtonSpurs September 12, 2017 at 10:15 am

        I get the impression Toby is happy, and just wants more cash and possibly this release clause thingy. I don’t believe he wants to be at a different club.

        The press and his agent are drumming up the stories.

        • East Stand September 12, 2017 at 10:39 am

          Sissy on 95k pw and Toby on 65k is just imbalanced bullshit and incoherent squad planning. No wonder Rose is moaning, he deserves more cash than Sissy. Who the fuck doesn’t?

          An utterly baffling signing…

    • MysteriousStranger September 12, 2017 at 10:50 am

      There were a number of us that expected Sissoko to fail, not “none of us”. That’s the honest statement.

      • East Stand September 12, 2017 at 2:06 pm

    Third kit has been officially released and will predominantly be used as the away kit in Europe. I like it

    • OrganicPaper September 12, 2017 at 9:25 am

      Im not sure about the ‘dazzle camo’. Might look appropriate on GangStar Danny Rose but will make a few over weight middle age balding fans look a tad daft.

      I like the purple/yellow color, just not the Camo aspect

      • SkySportsJews September 12, 2017 at 9:28 am

    So with the “Morata” chant prominent in football news the Daily Mail have reignited the debate on Tottenham fans use of the Y word & are basically calling for a ban by the club,although not in so many words.What are your thoughts guys ?

    • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? September 12, 2017 at 12:24 am

      The mail should concentrate on the low life Chelsea scum rather than focusing on us who turned an ugly thing around and into a positive. I’ve no doubt there will be a complete ban on singing yid army or the like in the new stadium as part of Levys brave new world.

      • Nick September 12, 2017 at 12:30 am

        To be honest I don’t agree with Chelsea’s censorship of the Morata chant at all.Its all part of the banter & atmosphere of football.Offence can only be taken not given & this type of censorship can only lead us down the no swearing prawn sandwich road.with football grounds becoming more sterile by the year I fear for the atmosphere.

        • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? September 12, 2017 at 12:38 am

          I haven’t heard the chant. Its when they start talking about our use of the word in the same context it gets galling. I agree. When words start becoming against the law then there’s no way back.

  • Jimbo THFC September 11, 2017 at 5:47 pm

    Has anyone spotted 1 thing that Sissoko does that resembles a footballer?

    We’ve had some dross in past but they’ve had at least 1 attribute of a footballer. For example, Zokora and Palacious would run around, Jenas scored to odd goal etc.

    • gloster1861 September 11, 2017 at 5:54 pm

      He gets paid a great deal of money. Does that count?

      • Jimbo THFC September 11, 2017 at 5:58 pm

        Ok. Football attribute. I would honestly like to know what his strengths are.

    • maximumspursman September 11, 2017 at 6:05 pm

      He looks good in the ‘Yid kit’ – not in a sexual way I hasten to add! As, previously, mentioned I did think he did ok at the weekend although I recognise that the bar (for comparison) is at a low starting point. He plays for the ‘Chicken Badge’ so I want him to do well but if an upgrade can be found then, of course, would accept his loss. What gets me is the poor first touch. How do you get so far in the game (International player, Premier League etc) without being able to control the ball!?!

      • caveman September 11, 2017 at 6:09 pm

        These managers must see something in him to put him out there.

        • maximumspursman September 11, 2017 at 6:13 pm

    • ronwol196061🇨🇦 September 11, 2017 at 7:39 pm

      He has power,fierce going forward, can hit a pass but his timing has been off with us for sure but he will get better
      How much better us still a question.
      But its not his fault
      We should never have bought him

      Did he score??

    It was by far his least shit performance for Spurs. He even had a couple of shots – one was actually on target (though blocked so may not have registered as his first ever shot on target). The amazing thing was how he looked better than any of the £140m pile of assembled junk Koeman tried to pass off as a team. I fully expect normal service to resume if the injury isn’t as bad as we hoped it to be.

    Palace are going to loose the next 4 too, they play some genuinely strong clubs over their next several fixtures.

    • AccringtonSpurs September 11, 2017 at 2:52 pm

      He’s still at the club only because no one wanted to buy him over the summer. The financials for a loan deal obviously didn’t work for Daniel.

          I don’t see us going 2 up front up front vs Dort, needs to be tested in a couple of league or FA cup games first. Too big a risk for such an important game. Might be wrong, but I think we’ll be sticking with same formation as at Everton, Son in place of Del boy.

      • Bruxie September 11, 2017 at 2:39 pm

        Could be!

        Hadn’t considered that so early in Llorente’s spell with us.

        We have options, don’t we?!

    • McG September 11, 2017 at 2:38 pm

      I think Dembele was rested for Dortmund. I doubt Sissy will start & would think there won’t be many other changes to the side. Dier’s pass % so far this season averages 90%, can’t see him being dropped with no Wanyama.

      • gloster1861 September 11, 2017 at 2:40 pm

        Except Dele is banned.

        • McG September 11, 2017 at 2:46 pm

          Yeah, Son for Deli, Dembele for Sissy. Read somewhere that Aurier might be in with a shout, but I’d have thought he’s more likely to get his debut vs Swans on Sat…

    “But, I must love my job, mustn’t I? Yes, I love my job.”
    ——–
    Dissonant thought:
    “Sissoko is a terrible footballer who is embarrassment to our club…”

    Dissonance alleviated:
    “BUt, he got involved with the play, so he had a good game, didn’t he? He is showing signs of improvement… maybe he’ll come good like Danny Rose did… he wears the shirt for us – he’s a Spur!”

    Wednesday.

    We’ll see where the priorities lie.

    No more picking crap teams for the UCL.

    Win Wednesday and a draw away to Borussia – that’ll do.

    As long as we stuff Apoel twice.

    A point from 6 from RM will be good enough.

      You lost me there.

      • Bruxie September 11, 2017 at 2:15 pm

        Oh!

        I get it.

        You want me to talk about cut flowers or Sissy?

        Bollox.

          Spursy is spesh. Get over it.

            You are unhinged sir!

              And your typing is sometimes ronlike. You forgot the word “with”.

    He’s overpaid & cost too much, but he’s staying. Who knows if he’ll come good? Recon there’s more chance of that happening if people get behind him I’d say. If he improves & gets anywhere near the level he managed in the Euro’s, we’ve a decent squad player, & it’s depth we’ve been missing last couple of seasons. I’d hoped we’d have had rid & replaced him, didn’t happen, so fingers crossed he plays a part & contributes to our season.

    I would love some cut flowers. I’d put them in my living room x

    • Bruxie September 11, 2017 at 2:08 pm

      Don’t be daffs.

      How are you?

      • Spursy September 11, 2017 at 2:18 pm

        Coming up roses. Pretty much everything is fine and dandilion.

        • Bruxie September 11, 2017 at 2:19 pm

          So pleased!

          Wembley this year?

          • Spursy September 11, 2017 at 2:22 pm

            Would love to do that. That’s the one upside of Wembley for me as a Spurs fan – more seats there so more chance of getting in.
            My family are desperate to go to a match. Maybe we could co-ordinate a game sometime?

            • Bruxie September 11, 2017 at 2:25 pm

              Sure!

              H has my e-mail…he might get jealous, though.

      Hi Bruxie, You well? Agree about the CL. Will be an interesting match on Wednesday.

      • Bruxie September 11, 2017 at 2:23 pm

        I’m fine, thanks.

        Need to win Weds.

        1-0 would do me.

        Take care.
