No. Hard is stupid. Never be an apologist of stupid.

Two incidents recently chime with this. Both featuring the same supermarket delivery service.

The Ocado truck pulls up outside the farmhouse next door some 50 metres away from our door. I open the door and after some waving the guy catches my eye and waves back. I change my wave to a ‘over here’ type motion.

Instead of driving the truck over, Laughing Boy#1 carries over each tub one by one laden to the brim some with bottled water and tins etc to the door. I am bewildered why this man would inflict such labour upon himself.

Then we had the snow and given the location any sane person at the same company would have cancelled the delivery. But instead of a call asking us if we’d seen the news in the last 24hours it was Laughing Boy#2 saying that he was 100% stuck in a snow drift half a mile away but was loading a trolley which he would push on foot through the madness. Another sadomasochist. He was told to stay put and we’d collect from him while he waited for greater assistance.

These are two straightforward examples of ‘self inflicted hard’. These two chumps were well meaning, but what were they prevailing against? That’s right. Their own stupidity.

My dog doesn’t understand physics and if you throw one of his toys over the back of the sofa – to him it’s vanished. He doesn’t know to go round. His brain is wired differently to humans. A third of it processes scent. So a dog gets a pass. 

Why would a man act like a mule and make life hard for himself?

It’s no coincidence that certain religious sects punish themselves to be closer to god, because piety has an uncomfortable way of mimicking stupidity.

Spurs are doing things the hard way under ENIC not because they are run by dummies who used to deliver groceries or a dog, but because they absolutely refuse to put football first.

The piety of the fans that have bought into this is suffocating. To try and justify the reverence we are peddled myths. Much like religion.

The Myth of the Academy. Nobody can make a cogent case in support of this myth. The closest anyone has ever got, is to ask if other club’s development squads ever produce anything of worth. Who cares? I don’t have to deal with the conveyor belt of morons that support other clubs who are so mentally fragile that they actually believe the drip drip drip of misplaced enthusiasm from creeps like WendyCOYS. Don’t mistake this for opinion; wall to wall failure in Under Whatever it is leagues and the overwhelming majority that ‘make it’ through to the so called big time are either too deranged to play for anyone or only able to slot in as adequate journeymen in lower league sides.

The Penury Myth (Incorporating the Doing A Leeds Myth) You will forgive me for keeping this brief but we’ve covered this over and over. Not going bankrupt isn’t a reason to be smug.

If a lifeguard at the local swimming baths went home every night and told his wife ‘nobody drowned today’, you’d have to wonder if he understood the basics of his job description. If a lifeguard at the local swimming baths went home every night and told his wife ‘I didn’t drown today’, you’d have to wonder if he was really the right man for the job. Indeed, any job.

Lifeguard Daniel Levy gets paid more than any other chairman in the country, despite having turned over billions but only won one solitary cup. Worse yet, he gets a resounding pat on the back for keeping us out of the insolvency courts.

Doing it the hard way only makes sense, becomes justifiable if you’re trying to climb a mountain on foot. Or break the four minute mile. Then and only then is ‘hard’ admirable.

Doing it the hard way because your primary focus is upon making your investment bulletproof is not admirable. It would be if this was for the greater good that is the team winning stuff, but with one trophy in nigh on two decades while other sides win stuff every single season, that obviously is not the case.

If Spurs prevail – prevail will be the right word alright. They will have defied not a few opposing teams but a more stubborn and sinister force – their own business model.

Winning something will be glorious, but greater? That’s a particularly strange way of wording the experience.

If Roger Bannister had broken the four minute mile whilst secretly wearing lead weights under his vest would that have made his achievement even greater?

If Sir Edmund Percival Hillary KG ONZ KBE OSN revealed that he and Tenzing Norgay had secretly agreed not to take enough food or water before setting off, would that have made their achievement even greater?

I’ll be delighted if we win something, but not because we somehow manage to out manoeuvre the Investment Company that was supposed to be backing us…

    Real Fan?

    Yeah, fuck going to football in the face. I’ll watch this and all subsequent games on the telly if we win the fackin’ thing. That goes for the FA Cup too.

    Just in case you missed it…

    Given what you pretend to do for a profession, you have an uncanny knack of ploughing into debates like the proverbial bull in a china shop.

    I enjoy watching Spurs TRYING to win stuff. Backing a manager and allowing them to build a team. If you think Levy has done that
    then I feel very very sorry for you.

    Try NOT interpreting what I say, try not deciding that my view MUST rely upon anything I haven’t championed.

    Thankfully people have given up wasting their time and mine telling me what a star of a human you are in real life. On here you’re blunt tool.

    If it’s an act, I strongly suggest you drop it.

    If you genuinely feel enriched and empowered to such a degree that you feel superior to people who no longer go to games every week, then you need to talk to someone. My guess is, that would be another waste of everyone’s time as you’d find it impossible not to sneer.

    I’m bored senseless by you and here’s the thing. YOU come to me. If you had a blog, I wouldn’t click on it. So keep nipping at my ankles and your next ban will be everlasting.

    I trust that’s biblically fucking clear.

    • Real Fan? March 6, 2018 at 1:57 pm

      My point wasn’t about attending games in person, although I can see how it looked like that from what I wrote. I’ve never once said that someone who doesn’t go to games isn’t a worthy supporter. I didn’t go for years. I bailed last Wednesday because it was a bit chilly. What I was trying to say is that I’d give up watching or following the team altogether if winning a trophy was the only criteria for enjoyment.

      My actual point was made in the post replying to yours directly.

      • Freund or Foe March 6, 2018 at 2:04 pm

    My favourite saying ofthis decade.

    I like your blogs when you make a very coherent point about how you feel things are at Tottenham Hotspur Football Club H.

    Some might agree, some might disagree, some night agree to disagree.

    I’m a fence sitter when it comes to the owners and how it’s run, and how spurs are developing under poch.

    I agree the youth system isn’t the bees knees.

    I also agree that the club is not winning trophies how we’d all love it to.

    I do think that there are many many flaws in the mentality of levy in that he is a businessman and spurs are a football club but like many football clubs, they are now businesses.

    And I despise football for allowing this unretractable situation to have evolved.

    But I like how spurs are moving forward despite this mentality.

    I like it that spurs are possibly on the verge of greatness this season as I honestly believe they are more than capable of winning the European cup and fa cup.

    Tomorrow is not gonna be an easy task because if spurs don’t produce their A game, they could get beaten. But they are capable of beating any team if the conditions are right (mentally, physically, and a bit of luck).

    I didn’t want WHL demolished.

    But it was.

    And the new destination looks decent.

    But that’s how the football world is nowadays.

    I don’t like it.
    But it is what it is.

    Levy has got lucky with poch.

    And the most consistent team over the past 3 seasons has been spurs.

    I just hope spurs win something this season to put the cherry on the top.

    If the pitch is un-retractable they’ll be artisan hotdogs and craft beers on the pitch!

    • Horndog 🇺🇸 March 6, 2018 at 1:32 pm

      Worried by Putin? I’m more worried About the idiot on the other side.reports are suggesting he just dreamed up these trade tariffs without any consultation with staff or lawyers,because he was annoyed with all the pressure on him. Now rich one sounds like a lunatic

  • UnkleTaff March 6, 2018 at 12:53 pm

    Whilst yesterday’s last-gasp winner for Utd was undeniably disappointing, I am drawing considerable solace from the fact that they were even 2-0 down to relegation fodder in the first place.

    If we keep plugging away as we are I’m confident we can overhaul them and finish third … at least.

    • Flynnbob March 6, 2018 at 12:57 pm

      Yes to this , I though second was reachable but credit to pool their looking a lot like a top team

      • UnkleTaff March 6, 2018 at 1:04 pm

        We were the better team up at Anfield the other day. I still think we can catch them.

        This weekend’s Utd Liverpool match will be interesting.

        • Flynnbob March 6, 2018 at 1:10 pm

          I keep hoping for a typical pool collapse but as I said their looking pretty good,I actually wouldn’t mind pool beating manure this weekend and with the Cl next week I can see them struggling the following week aswell . Our crunch game is Chavski away , beat them and we’re a shoe in for top4

          • caveman March 6, 2018 at 1:11 pm

            or even a draw!

          • UnkleTaff March 6, 2018 at 1:12 pm

            I agree with that last point. Open up an eight-point gap and it’s “Arrivederci Antonio”.

            Which would be nice.

            • Flynnbob March 6, 2018 at 1:18 pm

              Our teams capable of winning the last 9 games , I can’t say the same about chavs and manure ,which gives me confidence in a top 3 finish .The Fa cup is a must win !! If we don’t win it that’s a failure in my 👀

        That’s what luck means.

    • Flynnbob March 6, 2018 at 12:44 pm

      Agreed , however everything was in place for a good manager to succeed, if Poch had took over in Sugars reign we would be talking about another Gross or Santini,I think levy deserves credit for dragging us from mid table mediocrity to a top team in Europe. If the great football is a bi product of Enic chasing money 💰 💰 ,then long may it continue.

  • Ronwol1960-61 March 6, 2018 at 12:12 pm

    Poch seems to accept the rules of engagement. So why cant we?
    Maybe eventua. Welly he will move on or maybe we will gradually up the ante.
    We rarely buy in January. We did this year. We bought what I think is a critical piec of the puzzle,Lucas Moura. We could get one more in the summer,maybe a young Mousa Dembele type that could help. Yes we could upgrade the backs but that wont happen now and if we lost Toby we would buy another CB of quality.
    We are doing well in the league and in the CL and also the FA Cup.

      If we win something the ‘I told you so’ brigade will be as credible a scratch card winners telling you how talented they are.

  • Real Fan? March 6, 2018 at 11:33 am

    One way in which we are ‘doing it the hard way’ is by virtue of the draw we have had so far in this season’s CL. We won the Group of Death at a canter, beating last year’s winners Real Madrid 4-2 on aggregate and Dortmund 5-2 on aggregate. These are facts. Results. Neutral observers seemed to be impressed by this.

    Next we drew last year’s finalists and one of this year’s favourites. We came from behind, after some comedy defending, to earn a very creditable away draw. Again, impartial people seemed to think we had done well.

    If we knock them out, we progress to the Quarter Finals. So far, no easy route. Let’s see where it leads.

    • Horndog 🇺🇸 March 6, 2018 at 11:39 am

        Some might agree, some might disagree, some night agree to disagree.

        I’m a fence sitter when it comes to the owners and how it’s run, and how spurs are developing under poch.

        I agree the youth system isn’t the bees knees.

        I also agree that the club is not winning trophies how we’d all love it to.

        I do think that there are many many flaws in the mentality of levy in that he is a businessman and spurs are a football club but like many football clubs, they are now businesses.

        And I despise football for allowing this unretractable situation to have evolved.

        But I like how spurs are moving forward despite this mentality.

        I like it that spurs are possibly on the verge of greatness this season as I honestly believe they are more than capable of winning the European cup and fa cup.

        Tomorrow is not gonna be an easy task because if spurs don’t produce their A game, they could get beaten. But they are capable of beating any team if the conditions are right (mentally, physically, and a bit of luck).

        I didn’t want WHL demolished.

        But it was.

        And the new destination looks decent.

        But that’s how the football world is nowadays.

        I don’t like it.
        But it is what it is.

        Levy has got lucky with poch.

        And the most consistent team over the past 3 seasons has been spurs.

        I just hope spurs win something this season to put the cherry on the top.

          Nilly, with this new job thing, you now have far too much time to post on the blog. Can you dial it back just a bit? Hehehe. 🤩

      • Real Fan? March 6, 2018 at 11:56 am

        By that logic, the only time a person is able to enjoy being a Spurs fan is on the days that we win a trophy. That would limit that person to 5 days a year of potential enjoyment. I’d give up watching football and/or supporting a team if that was what was on offer for me. The remainder of the time it is an absolutely pointless endeavour.

        • Freund or Foe March 6, 2018 at 12:19 pm

          Oh well. I think there’s darts on tomorrow, if you’re up for it?

          • Real Fan? March 6, 2018 at 12:21 pm

            Yeah, fuck going to football in the face. I’ll watch this and all subsequent games on the telly if we win the fackin’ thing. That goes for the FA Cup too.

        • Harry Hotspur March 6, 2018 at 1:22 pm

          Given what you pretend to do for a profession, you have an uncanny knack of ploughing into debates like the proverbial bull in a china shop.

          I enjoy watching Spurs TRYING to win stuff. Backing a manager and allowing them to build a team. If you think Levy has done that
          then I feel very very sorry for you.

          Try NOT interpreting what I say, try not deciding that my view MUST rely upon anything I haven’t championed.

          Thankfully people have given up wasting their time and mine telling me what a star of a human you are in real life. On here you’re blunt tool.

          If it’s an act, I strongly suggest you drop it.

          If you genuinely feel enriched and empowered to such a degree that you feel superior to people who no longer go to games every week, then you need to talk to someone. My guess is, that would be another waste of everyone’s time as you’d find it impossible not to sneer.

          I’m bored senseless by you and here’s the thing. YOU come to me. If you had a blog, I wouldn’t click on it. So keep nipping at my ankles and your next ban will be everlasting.

          I trust that’s biblically fucking clear.

  • caveman March 6, 2018 at 11:26 am

    I’d say Levy and co are pretty smart cookies, they have sold the foundation, the Academy, the new stadium to the fans as real progress while all the time not winning anything. Most fans are delighted with Levy’s progress and they sing songs from the terraces about Mauricio Pochettino being ‘magic youknooooooooooooo, they are so grateful for the progress.
    I think if we had won the league cup and didn’t qualify for the Champions league that the fans would react negatively.
    Levy can bullshit them day in and day out because he has conditioned them to thinking that inclusion in a competition like the CL is greater than winning a trophy.
    The shiny new stadium with a one billion price tag will give them enough brownie points for a further five or six years.
    There’s no need to win anything jus so long as you can have a manager that progresses players so much that the quadruple in value and we keep on qualifying for the CL and we survive on a zero net spend, the fans will put up with the two baldies forever without any need for a trophy cabinet.

    • Horndog 🇺🇸 March 6, 2018 at 11:31 am

      It is a strange marriage Cavey. ENIC and football. In the end we might need to bring in Dr. Phil to sort this one out.

    • Sexy Beast March 6, 2018 at 11:31 am

      We will win stuff, I’m sure of it .

    • Randy Lee March 6, 2018 at 11:37 am

      Absolute Bollocks!

      To win trophy’s you need quality players, game changers if you will.
      To get game changers and quality players you need to be in the CL!
      football has changed in recent years, its not really one or the other, yes we need to win a trophy that is the most important thing but also we need to be challenging in the CL and attracting the players that will win us the medals we want which is the PL!

      unnecessary levy bashing going on here! we still have a chance of winning a cup this year! with Poch doing the business in a ground that most thought would be a real struggle.

  • legendary greavsey March 6, 2018 at 11:23 am

    The sad reality is we have an Investment company running our football club a manager who like it or not has bought into the company model and only 2 competitions that really are the only ones that give greatess recognition C L and PL of which we can compete well in but whether we win is altogether different, we are on an upward trend in consistency which is hard to maintain but very doable with good intelligent buying and recruiting. I understand your frustrations of not much silverware but seriously its only been since Poch has been in charge that we look as if we are able to eventually get there so unless you have a very good and realistic alternative to Levy and Enichs business model i think you might be even more frustrated.

    • Freund or Foe March 6, 2018 at 1:16 pm

      There’s nothing sad about my Spurs reality.

        • Freund or Foe March 6, 2018 at 1:43 pm

          Ah, only for the sad. I’m happy for those wanting to be sad to remain that way, but it saddens me that that sadness may exclude you from the happiness that I am experiencing, though I wouldn’t want to force it on you. I must admit, I do suffer from sore flippers.
