Liverpool are what I would class as a particularly irritating football team.

This does nothing to aid matters in respects of my irrational contempt, but goodness me, oh for Spurs manager who would talk like Jurgen Klopp.

It will be the third final Klopp has led the side to in three years but having lost the last two – making it five in total for him personally – but he knows they need to put silverware back in the cabinet. The gaffer told PA Sport:

“We were in a League Cup final, we didn’t win it. People don’t tell me in the street since then: ‘Thank you for bringing us to the final. We were in the Europa League final, nobody tells me that. I see no trophies after these games. They don’t hang silver medals at Melwood. That’s the game.”

Just let that sink in.

The words we’ve been waiting for Poch to say.

Alas, spoken by someone else’s coach.

No gobbledegook about ‘competing’ – he wants to win.

No sneering at domestic cups – just regret.

He wants silverware, not utterly meaningless second place silver medals.

He wants to win and to effect the history books.

The problem with Maurico Pochettino is that he says he feel like a winner, but when your corner him and ask him to actually win something, he produces 500 page Terms & Conditions document.

If you played Monopoly with Poch, he’d lose, then say, ‘Ah, but you forget. I won 2nd prize in a beauty competition. Not all bad.’

“They don’t hang silver medals at Melwood. That’s the game.”

At Hotspur Way we hang up anything we can lay our hands on.

Record attendance figures, old Valentines cards from the Supporter’s Trust, a Beer mat autographed by Diego Maradona, a pin tray presented to Iain Duncan Smith (Minister For Disabled Evictions) that he didn’t bother taking home with him.

It’s a magical fairytale land acknowledging ENICs unbridled successes and achievements.

Oh no, sorry, that’s the offshore bank account statements.

    I think Costa enjoyed that:

  • Gloster1861 May 3, 2018 at 9:06 pm

    Atletico need to steal a quick goal after the break. Then catch Arsenal on the break when they have to push all out. Just like the gooners did in their heyday.

  • Caspurs♿️ May 3, 2018 at 9:04 pm

    I still maintain we need to secure 3rd place.

          • SeattleSpursGuy May 3, 2018 at 9:16 pm

            New manager bounce only gets you so far. Brom are shit, which is why they are propping up the league. We’ll murderize ’em.

    The betting market has dropped Arsenal to a 7.14% chance of a comeback.

    Which is nice.

  • madcap May 3, 2018 at 7:33 pm

    Oddly I find myself agreeing with Harry. I say oddly because it is probably the first time, as mostly his blogs are designed to aggravate and are nearly always b******s. However it cannot be denied that Spurs have made significant progress under Poch. After 4 years we now expect to finish in the top four, expect to challenge for the title and other cups. Before Poch we expected to finish below Arsenal. This year we are playing 38 away games and yet could still finish 3rd. The next level is not to win a domestic cup, it is to win trophies and the premier League regularly. So consistency is needed. Look at Leicester City, winners of the Premier League 2 seasons ago and mid table fodder now. Of course to win a trophy is the point of competing, but to win trophies repeatedly must be the goal.

    • Archibald May 3, 2018 at 7:54 pm

      I don’t think it’s correct to say we’ve had 38 away games. An away game means that the other team has a home game, which none of the visitors to Wembley has had. I’d say we’ve played 19 away games and 19 on neutral ground at the end of the season. Nitpicking? Me?

From my admittedly limited experience of the financial services industry if you tried the same approach with your boss they’d give you one very polite piece of advice which was to not let the door hit you on the arse on the way out. I don’t know whether your approach would work with Levy but I wouldn’t personally put any great belief in it.

    This is true with most people/companies.
    But this too its supply and demand.
    If you are the only one ir of the few with the goods…the boss if he isnt deaf dumb and blind MUST listen.
    You woukd be a desirable commodity.
    Most people are not

  • IrishSpurs May 3, 2018 at 6:45 pm

    Winning mentality comes from your coach and those around him/her – coming from a boxing background my coaches bred it into us as kids that winning what it was all about – not this “its the taking part” business. As a spurs fan I have been used to not winning anything compared to my utd and pool friends – in a funny way it was part of being a spurs fan – now though with the help of poch we have progressed to a top 4 side but we seem to be happy with this – we shouldnt be – the talk of negativity on this blog is not because we dont love our team – quite the opposite – we want to win – we want to compete with the best – and we are quite close – but we need our hierarchy to show the same passion and talk the talk – ive never really been overly disappointed after a game of football but that semi final hurt – from poch saying he wasnt really worried if we won it or not to team selection and then some abject displays I felt let down and I genuinely now worry that we will slip back to that team that everyone likes to watch but wins f**k all – so to all the flat earthers we are not being negative but unfortunately we are being realistic – if we stand still we go back!!!

      Yes, the ‘everybodys favourite second team who play attractive football’ syndrome, but don’t threaten the top table status quo, therefore excite no real emotion.

  • AdzSpur May 3, 2018 at 6:39 pm

    For crying out loud enough with the negativity. We are unable to just go and drop £100m + on a player plus obscene wages, so inevitably we lose to teams that can. That’s just a fact. We are not going to do things the Man City way so our path is not going to be instant success. It is going to take time (years!) for us to compete at the top table so just be grateful that we are on the up , should qualify for the CL 3 years in a row and aren’t Wet Spam fans.

    • Gloster1861 May 3, 2018 at 6:44 pm

      Salah cost 34 million. Sone dickhead flushed 30 million on Sissoko who Newcastle fans were happy to see the back of.

      We’re talking bad judgement.

      • ronwol96061 May 3, 2018 at 7:33 pm

        Pool have nade mistakes. Its always a gamble to a certain extent
        They have gone back though.
        Thats the Entrepreneur spirit not the accountant spirit.

        The question is are you playing defence or attack?

        • Gloster1861 May 3, 2018 at 7:45 pm

          Yep. However lots of people’s opinions was that Sissoko was a really big risk as it proved. Salah had shown his goal scoring talent at Roma.

          • ronwol96061 May 3, 2018 at 7:51 pm

              Newcastle fans couldn’t believe we took Sissoko off their hands. They were overjoyed.

              • ronwol96061 May 3, 2018 at 7:59 pm

                How do we know Poch didnt pick Sissoko?
                He does play the system
                Has the power for the system even if not good at footie.

                Remember Moura sits and Sissoko plays who’s choice is that?
                Levys?

                • Gloster1861 May 3, 2018 at 8:09 pm

                  I don’t think I said who made the decision, just not a good one. I don’t know who mad the fateful call. I can remember that Poch was on holiday but that means nothing.

    • paul May 3, 2018 at 6:45 pm

      No-one on here is asking for a 100mil player or anywhere near it for that matter (Salah cost 35) but some serious quality additions in the 35-50 range wouldn’t go amiss and if we offload the dross the money is there for that.

      Crystal Palace, Leicester and Wet Spam are paying better wages than Spurs. We used to be a big rich club, now we’re a big poor club while our Chairman is the best paid in the whole of the British Isles.

      • Gloster1861 May 3, 2018 at 6:49 pm

        Excellent point. Palace pay more to Zaha than we pay Kane.

        How does that work? What magic money tree do Palace have?

        • SpurAndy 🍒π May 3, 2018 at 6:59 pm

          Palace have wages to revenue at 79‰, pretty high I think you’ll agree. We are 48%, a it more than Manure who are on 45%. Make of those figures as you will. These are as at end of 2016 financial year end.

          • Gloster1861 May 3, 2018 at 7:08 pm

              Good question, assume it doesn’t for some reason but don’t know why. If they got relegated they would presumably be in big doo doo’s.

            • SpurAndy 🍒π May 3, 2018 at 7:21 pm

              Clubs can spend up to €5million more than they earn per assessment period (three years). However it can exceed this level to a certain limit, if it is entirely covered by a direct contribution/payment from the club owner(s) or a related party. This prevents the build-up of unsustainable debt.

              The limits are:
              • €45m for assessment periods 2013/14 and 2014/15
              • €30m for assessment periods 2015/16, 2016/17 and 2017/18

              • Gloster1861 May 3, 2018 at 7:25 pm

                So you’re saying about owner can inject outside cash into a club legitimately?

                • SpurAndy 🍒π May 3, 2018 at 7:40 pm

                  My take is as a one off, €30m over a 3 year period so 10m a year.

    What happens to Spurs CL qualification if Liverpool win the CL and Arse win the Ropey Cup?

    Since we’re finishing 3rd, nothing.

      Atta boy! Positivity!

      • SeattleSpursGuy May 3, 2018 at 6:11 pm

        And why not? In many ways 3rd is more likely than 4th.

        Oh God, I just jinxed us, didn’t I?

        • Aussie in Switzerland May 3, 2018 at 6:18 pm

          Only hurts us if all that happens and Liverpool finish 5th

          • SeattleSpursGuy May 3, 2018 at 6:23 pm

            Only 5 teams from a league can go to the CL, so:

            Chelsea leap over Spurs and Liverpool to finish 3rd;
            Spurs finish 4th;
            Liverpool finish 5th but win the CL;
            Arse win the Ropey.

            EPL top 3, Pool (as CL holders) and Arse (as Ropey holders) make the CL. Spurs would miss out and go to the Ropey.

            • Aussie in Switzerland May 3, 2018 at 6:27 pm

              Yes, that’s what I said….. Sort of

              • SeattleSpursGuy May 3, 2018 at 6:39 pm

                Pool have 72 points with 6 more on offer (78 max). GD of + 43
                Spurs have 71 points with 9 more on offer (80 max). GD of +37
                Chavs have 66 points with 9 more on offer (75 max). GD of +26

                Because of goal difference, for this to happen, the chavs would need to win out (75), Spurs manage two draws (73) and Pool lose their last two (72). Not very likely

                • Gloster1861 May 3, 2018 at 6:45 pm

    Camus
    In the time since we bought Christian Eriksen, who has been a great buy, in the attacking positions Liverpool bought Firmino, Mane and Salah.
    Players of note. Players of pace and purpose.
    They already had Coutinho and also Suarez for a couple of those seasons.
    They’ve also bought some utter rubbish, and a lot of it, but in that time frame, in the attacking positions, in terms of players of note we bought Dele Alli and Son and that’s it.
    We’ve still managed to finish above them for most of those recent seasons, but their improvement the past couple of seasons has been due to some decent recruitment in the attacking positions, notably with pace and goals.

          • SpurAndy 🍒π May 3, 2018 at 6:01 pm

            Big call, if he really, really fancies himself at the moment then he might not think twice. Plus’s would be the spending power and having some of the best players in the world at your disposal. The minus’s would be that he’d have to win a decent trophy in his first season as a minimum. If its Real or Barca, probably have to be the CL to keep your job. Also dealing with many more fragile egos which would be knew to him.

    Harry Hotspur May 3, 2018 at 4:20 pm
    Oi!

    I’ve just had a better look – if we get 4 seasons.

    Chiirches 8.5m
    Chadli 7.34m
    SOldudo 27m
    Capoue 9.9m
    Paulinho 17.75m
    Stambouli 5.3m
    FAZIO! 9m
    And Lamela for luck 27m

    115m+ extra 😂

    So this started by you stating that “We’ve spent about the same, but bought wheelbarrow of arseholes on HP.”

    They’ve spent much more, and have a just as a horrendous wheelbarrow full of arseholes as we do, if not more.

    They’ve sold twice as many of their “top” players in that time than we have.

    But carry on, Fenway are amazing, especially by comparison.

      • Freund or Foe May 3, 2018 at 4:42 pm

        Please, join in Glos. We’re championing why the Liverpool owners have done such a fantastic job, compared to ours. The proof is all there, I just can’t see it because I’m blind to any criticism of my lord, Levy.

    • Gloster1861 May 3, 2018 at 4:40 pm

      Presumably by the law of averages, if Fenway buy/spend twice as much as Levy, they’ll accumulate twice as many good players but have twice as many rejects. They certainly have a cracking set of attackers.

      What they have signally failed to do so far thus far is get quality defenders, but it appears this is the next step starting with van Dijk.

    When it comes to sports teams, Paul Allen bought the Seahawks when the former owner threatened to move the team to Southern California. A former Seahawks minority owner said “I’m not sure anybody else in this community would have done what [Allen] did.” An act of local philanthropy. He bought into the Seattle Sounders for the same reasons. Getting a local team established in MLS. Basketball is his true sports passion, which is why he brought the Blazers.

    So without the local tie and not really being a football fan, if he were looking to buy Spurs it would be because it was a financially appealing deal. Dealing with Levy, I don’t know that it would be.

    I’d love it to be true though. By all accounts, he’s a good owner. Doesn’t spray money everywhere but makes money available, gets sports people to run the teams, and doesn’t interfere.

    • Gloster1861 May 3, 2018 at 4:26 pm

      Weird. What is a team if it isn’t the emanation of its home support, the fans? It’s just a name.

      Can’t understand this stuff. When Wimbledon become the MK Dons and moved sixty miles the supporters mourned a death. To all intents and purposes the Dons are a totally new thing.
      Thank goodness AFC Wimbledon have resurrected the club for the local fans to follow again.

    Camus

    In the time since we bought Christian Eriksen, who has been a great buy, in the attacking positions Liverpool bought Firmino, Mane and Salah.

    Players of note. Players of pace and purpose.
    They already had Coutinho and also Suarez for a couple of those seasons.

    They’ve also bought some utter rubbish, and a lot of it, but in that time frame, in the attacking positions, in terms of players of note we bought Dele Alli and Son and that’s it.

    We’ve still managed to finish above them for most of those recent seasons, but their improvement the past couple of seasons has been due to some decent recruitment in the attacking positions, notably with pace and goals.

    Champions League final?

          You could fill the entire Scottish league with shite players that they’ve bought since Fenway arrived, and probably win a lot of shiney’s with what they’ve sold.

              Yep. Benteke, bought for 46.5mil, sold a year later for 31.2mil

                      Scousers have bought some junk. Poor Ings though. He shouldn’t be on the list. Crocked about 10 minutes into his Liverpool career and is just now coming back into the side. Joe Allen played a lot is Rodgers side I think too. Although he ain’t the welsh Xavi.😨

                    Carrol stayed at Pooh 2 seasons before being loaned out.
                    Joe Allen stayed for 4 years.
                    Borini 3 years.

                    This is your list!

                    • Accy May 3, 2018 at 4:01 pm

                      Borini was perennially loaned out almost from the moment he arrived.

                      Ballotelli didn’t last long, Benteke didn’t, Adam didn’t.

                      You might be right about the other two (Carroll and Allen)

                    • Freund or Foe May 3, 2018 at 4:18 pm

                      Yep, correct about Borini Accy. Seeing as you only mentioned 4 of our players, all of which was 2 years apart from Lamela (which as you say, is arguable), do you still think that Liverpool sell their shite quickly, but we don’t?

                      Either way, they have bought more shite than us and wasted more money than us, which was my original point in response to Harold. Surely you can see that, whether they’ve sold them quickly (and mostly for massive losses) or not?

                    • Accy May 3, 2018 at 4:22 pm

    Pooch was cut a lot of slack when he joined by the media and the fans. He was a young coach and needed time to create the “project”. It was a marriage made in heaven with Levy as it once again deferred the pressure of having to win something. Four years on and now the media and the fan show are looking at Pooch and asking whether he is capable of winning anything. This is a question that other possible club owners who might look at him may be asking now as well. Pooch knows this and if one thing unsettles him it is any critique of his ability or process as his ego is almost as large as Levys. Levy has told him to spin “another four years yarn” to the outside world but it is becoming increasingly uncomfortable for Pooch and in comparison to coaches like Klopp makes him look less and less like a winner. Pooch may continue to spin the message but only as long as he gets a significant increase in his package. ENIC probably want four years of driving down the stadium debt with the same lack of investment in the football business so that when they sell they get the maximum payout. Will the supporters wear it with the increased ticket costs and the continuing lack of success whilst seeing the best players move on and be replaced by more cheaper haircut opportunities and will this motley crew be able with Pooch to sustain the mirage of wanting success by qualifying each year for the CL. One thing is for sure the whole project is balancing on a knife edge and this summers activities will say a lot. Get ready for the return of the Bale boy to sweeten the mood whilst we sell off some of our best….

        I had a SBT for 14 years during which time he never showed any aggression at all to any human being. Except one.

        We were in the motor together driving home to Crouch End. We were passing the park of Park Road fame (forget the actual name) when a Somlian/Sudanese women, dressed head to toe in black, just her face visible, stepped up to cross the road. The boy (not *The Boy*, he’s much worse) went nuts. Screaming, shouting; teeth bared, eyes rolling (still him, not me). I was shocked. It was so out of character.

        I really.don’t know what triggered him off. It couldn’t have been the burqha as it happened during my hijab wearing faze.

He sees all top sides doing what we are (allegedly) doing and then spending when needed like Liverpool coughing up 70mill and 180k a week on a so so player when they were wobbling whilst he’s getting a so so player who was never going to give him anything this season ( at best).

            Our Toby (pictured in my Avatar) was a rescue dog. He was trained as a gun dog but used to flinch when the guns went off so they couldn’t use him. He got sent to the rescue shop and was bought by a florist (who renamed him Kingsly or some shit). He was kept in the shop in a bed and used to growl at the customers (traumatised by the relocation, perhaps). The florist sent him back to the rescue shop, whereupon we took him on.

            First few weeks he’d growl anytime anyone came near his bed. Slowly and surely I began a bit of ‘horse-whispering,’ doggy-style.

            I would crouch down with my back to him (non-threatening) and gradually over time, inched towards his bed. After a couple of weeks I was able to stroke him in his bed and quickly move away again. All the while building up trust. Another week or so of that and by the end, he’d stopped growling.

            Within the space of a month I could sit next to him, and he was completely fine, relaxed and no growling.

            He went on to become the most passive, soppy dog we ever had.

    35pts West Ham have – Leicester • Utd • Everton
    35pts Huddersfield have – City • Chelsea • Arsenal
    33pts Swansea have – Bournemouth • Saints • Stoke
    32pts Southampton have – Everton • Swansea • City
    30pts Stoke have – Palace • Swansea
    28pts West Brom have – Tottenham • Palace

    By the looks of things, Huddersfield will probably get relegated as they likely won’t pick up any more points, along with Stoke and West Brom.

    Think Saints and Swansea will get to at least 35 and 36 points respectively – meaning West Ham stay up above Huddersfield.
