The Newport County gaffer Michael Flynn has apologised for his prematch ‘dossier’ on Spurs getting into the public domain. Highlights include:

  • Eric Dier is one-paced
  • Mousa Dembele gave away needless free-kicks
  • Dele Alli did not work hard to win possession back
  • Michel Vorm doesn’t come for crosses

Eric Dier is not just one paced as addicted to beta-blockers. Dele Alli works very hard off the ball. I’ve never seen anyone wave their arms with such forceful exasperation when sitting on the floor.

If that doesn’t make you chuckle, then perhaps this will. On Monday, Newport announced the departure of midfielder Sean Rigg by “mutual consent”.

“Sean has left the club to pursue his dream as a tattoo artist,” Flynn revealed. Even last week I asked Sean to stay – and I’ve also spoken to his father and his agent – but he made his mind up a while back.”

One player Flynn won’t have to worry about is new boy Lucas Moura who wasn’t registered before the first tie and therefore is ineligible for the replay. And he isn’t fit anyway.

    Wonder what Poch promised Flynn to get him to leak that. Hope it does the trick for the rest of the season.

    My dog escaped from my garden earlier today (a nigh impossible task, I’d’ve thought, but somehow he managed it). After an hour of driving around and alerting the neighbours I finally managed to track him down and bring him back home.

    If the smells coming out from under my desk are anything to go by he ate something extremely unsavoury during his brief period of freedom — and I’m due to be going out tonight.

    Really not looking forward to seeing what delights he’s left for me upon my return…

    Dog escapes are not fun.

    Bernie witnessed me go ‘full Basil Fawlty’ when he got out about 2 years ago.

    He now backs up when doors are opened.

    Heard a chelski fan on the radio today bemoaning their fate about have a winning season followed by a crap season. Even winning stuff most years isn’t good enough apparently. Probably symptomatic of most footy fans. There’ll always be something to moan about.

    We never moan,not us,never

    Much as Liverpool are incredibly irritating and Klopp gurns like crazy, it would be satisfying for Spurs to be London’s only team in the Champions League in our inaugural season at the KFC Bucket

    • Aussie in Switzerland February 6, 2018 at 6:06 pm

      I’d be happy with that. Klopp is a cock but is his cum rag head as bad as the special cunt at Man U or the kiddie fiddler at Arsenal?

    Spurs are in the running to win 2 trophies this season (excluding the premier league for obvious reasons) and so can’t physicslly win anything until May at the earliest.
    Even the other trophy where the final is before then, the league cup, the final hasn’t been played yet.
    So until it’s not possible to win anything this season (June) there’s no point bemoaning not winning anything (this season).
    I know poch hasn’t won anything so far but I honestly believe he will and I believe it will be this season to start with.

    If Spurs beat Arsenal on Saturday, it will be the first time this season since the opening fixture when we’d be ahead of last year’s points tally. Our GD is currently down 4 on last year’s total.

    If only that were true. We are on 49 pts after 26 games. Last season we were on 53 after 26.
    We can now only get 85 points max this season. Last season we finished on 86.

    I reckon that we need 76 points to be in the running. Currently 3 points behind on a pro rata basis. Need to win the next three to get back on the rails.

    • Aussie in Switzerland February 6, 2018 at 5:23 pm

      My crystal hairy balls say that we will lose one more, and draw one more, and finish 4th

      • gloster1861 February 6, 2018 at 5:33 pm

        Hope you’re right, that would give us 80 points and a likely second place.

        • Freund or Foe February 6, 2018 at 5:39 pm

          I’d guess that we’ll finish with 75-76 points, and that’ll be good enough for 3rd.

          • gloster1861 February 6, 2018 at 5:52 pm

            One point ahead of the dippers AND Cheatski… 😁

          Ok, one comment. The Chinese have developed a working railgun mounted on ships….start learning Mandarin mother fuckers…..ps non military interested girly types should google magnetic rail gun

          • gloster1861 February 6, 2018 at 5:35 pm

            A rail gun? Like they had 100 years ago? Surely guided missiles made those obsolete!

            • Aussie in Switzerland February 6, 2018 at 5:43 pm

              Somewhat….think of a gun that can shoot larger shells at a faster rate than anything else ever in history…..yes, missiles overtook traditional weapons, bit we also have nukes which no one is game to use…… the yanks tried to use the same tech for carrier launches, resulting in one plane and one pilot doing an instant impression of a submarine. A rail gun will be super effective as a final missile defence (in naval terms) beating the CIWS hands down (i.e. more than its 6000 rounds per minute, and only properly effective if deployed in tandem). This all happens of course if anti missile missiles fail first. So I think you are both correct and not correct.

    Two games in to the three game defining period and I’m a relatively happy bunny.

    Arse is the big game.

    Chelscum have Manure coming up and Arse have Citeh on the horizon.

    A win on Saturday will do the business – tho’ Liverpoo’s easier fixtures should keep them just above us.

    Something is amiss in chelsea…remeber the AVB days when we all wanted him to remain their manager? That’s how I feel about Conte. He’s unhappy. Their unhappy. Nobody wants him…except Italy.

    He’s working his contract. Gone at the end of the season to someone who doesn’t have to stump up as much compo.

    Riddance

    • UnkleTaff February 6, 2018 at 3:48 pm

      If Conte’s still in charge after those four games I’ll be amazed.

      • Bruxie February 6, 2018 at 3:50 pm
