Mauricio Pochettino the current manager of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club,, has put the cat amongst the Client Reference Numbers by hinting that Harry Kane could be ready to face Chelsea on Sunday. The gaffer told the press:

“We need to assess him. He is very positive and he is doing very well. Every day he is improving. We need to assess in the next few days. It’s difficult now to say yes or no. I cannot say no, but I cannot say yes. Maybe next weekend. But the most important (thing) is that we are so positive about his recovery, and we are doing fantastic, and we are so happy.”

Kane wasn’t supposed to back in time for this game, the ankle ligament damage sustained against Bournemouth was thought to be severe enough to sideline the 24 year old for a good while yet.

Mind games from Poch? My guess is that Kane may start on the bench and be brought on if Spurs hit an impasse against Chelsea. Mauricio is a hesitant character when it comes to injuries, but one gets the distinct sense that when it comes to Kanehino, there my be room for latitude if enough assurances are given.

There are only one or two sides in the league that I wouldn’t put past giving Harry a courtesy whack, and Chelsea are most definitely one of them. He had better be match fit.

    So he won’t be playing then.

    We really need to be aiming for third in the league at least. I’m having nightmares about cheatski piping us to fourth, and the scummy goons winning the Europa league, therefore qualifying for the cl at our expense.
    This could happen, it would only happen to us of course. So we need to beat the cheatski plastics.

    Spurs to beat Chelsea 3-2 on Sunday (the day God created chocolate from what I can remember from my RE class)….

    Anyway, in real life life I am a happy-go-lucky kind of guy. 🤣😂

    • Caspurs♿️ March 29, 2018 at 7:43 pm

      We could…

  • Lilywhite without the ll March 29, 2018 at 7:35 pm

    Son is due a pay rise soon as well I believe, so that could be another one…
    We did all say this could happen….and it well might….
    The New Destination will NOT pay bigger wages and I don’t believe it ever will with “my girl lollypop” in charge….

    • Caspurs♿️ March 29, 2018 at 7:44 pm

      Get a word..

  • Lilywhite without the ll March 29, 2018 at 7:33 pm

    So MD wants a big transfer move as well now…Our not so younguns are looking for a big move so the shinny new stadium doesn’t really mater to them, does it…..so thats Toby, Mouse, Deli & Eriksen next and then that only leaves Kane really, as Hugo is now shit..

    • Caspurs♿️ March 29, 2018 at 7:44 pm

      in. : )

    I only wish he would quit this ‘we are so happy’ bollox.

    • JackDLad March 29, 2018 at 7:34 pm

      I wish he would be saying that about the players and their wages/contracts!

      • UnkleTaff March 29, 2018 at 7:36 pm

        I couldn’t give a flying f*ck what he says so long as we keep performing where it matters — on the pitch.

    • Harry Hotspur March 29, 2018 at 7:51 pm

      He’s so happy and I am so calm.

      This is futbol, no?

    • Frontwheel 2 March 29, 2018 at 8:57 pm

      Beri beri happy

  • UnkleTaff March 29, 2018 at 7:27 pm

    This is a must win game …

    … for Chelsea. We can afford to lose it (obviously I’d much rather we didn’t) but even if we did we’d still have the upper hand.

    Fuck the “we haven’t won there in living memory” bollocks. We let that get into our heads and there will only be one outcome.

    A draw would not be the worst result in the world. Seven games to go and a five point advantage? That’d do for me.

    • Caspurs♿️ March 29, 2018 at 7:29 pm

      I’ll take a draw now, but a win (scoring in injury time to really pissum orf) would be nice.

      • UnkleTaff March 29, 2018 at 7:31 pm

        A win (for us) would pretty much end their top-four chances for sure.

        I could live with that.

    • SpurAndy 🍒π March 29, 2018 at 7:35 pm

      Agree with that Taff.

    • Frontwheel 2 March 29, 2018 at 8:56 pm

      Depends on how old you are,I was there in 78,nice 1-3 win for us

  • JackDLad March 29, 2018 at 7:24 pm

    “Mauricio Pochettino the Current manager of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club”, you say this like we have a revolving door H…..oh yes, we did, did’nt we!

  • Frontwheel 2 March 29, 2018 at 7:22 pm

    Hate the idea of Harry being rushed back,leave him on the bench and lets give our Son a chance to carry on impressing.

    • Caspurs♿️ March 29, 2018 at 7:25 pm

      I liked the way we played against Swansea, having Lamela, Son and Moura buzzing around their box, with Eriksen pulling the strings.

      • Frontwheel 2 March 29, 2018 at 7:27 pm

        Yep,nice to see a bit of forward competition.

    • JackDLad March 29, 2018 at 7:26 pm

      Would like to see the Son-shine on sunday and do that lot!

  • SpurAndy 🍒π March 29, 2018 at 7:19 pm

    I’d leave him on the bench. Make beating the rascists even more humiliating for them.

    • Caspurs♿️ March 29, 2018 at 7:22 pm

      “I’d leave him on the bench”
      Which park?

      • SpurAndy 🍒π March 29, 2018 at 7:33 pm

        Linkin.

        • 61SpursNut🌰 March 29, 2018 at 7:42 pm

          Linda, if you please.

          • Caspurs♿️ March 29, 2018 at 7:47 pm

            She clearly speaks your language, eh eh…

  • Superspoz 🏆 March 29, 2018 at 7:10 pm

    Start with the 433 we played against Bournemouth I say.

    • Superspoz 🏆 March 29, 2018 at 7:11 pm

      Maybe even swap Dele for Moura if he isn’t fit

    • Caspurs♿️ March 29, 2018 at 7:12 pm

      To obvious that’s what they’ll be expecting, we should go with a 2-1-3-1-1-2 formation, if we can’t work it out, they never will!

  • JackDLad March 29, 2018 at 7:09 pm

    Would love to see him out their, but he needs to be fully fit! It could get brutal in the tackle and Cheatski would only love to do him! That being said, he will probably be on the bench as you said H!

  • DAVID March 29, 2018 at 7:05 pm

    Not worth rushing him back for this game if he’s not ready, a bit more rest and he should be good for rest of the season.

  • Caspurs♿️ March 29, 2018 at 7:04 pm

    Boom MkII, double avvit!

    • DAVID March 29, 2018 at 7:06 pm

      You still stuck on M25 ?Hope you had some clean pants with you.

      • Caspurs♿️ March 29, 2018 at 7:07 pm

        Yep, I’ve gone ferrel.

        • Harry Hotspur March 29, 2018 at 7:10 pm

          Clean. Just not his.

          • DAVID March 29, 2018 at 7:13 pm

            You know him too well !

          • Caspurs♿️ March 29, 2018 at 7:21 pm

            Me, stolen underwear?! Sounds more like r’Andy’s modus operandi…
