The League cup. Or more accurately the Carabao cup.

Carabao is apparently Thailand’s second best selling energy drink. This is a 3 year deal, which is tremendous news for those wishing to associate themselves with caffeine riddled piss smelling pop.

By rights this game should be played on a Twister mat in a Channel 4 car park – with the cast of The Only Way Is Essex versus the cast of Emmerdale representing the two teams. What an utterly depressing point we’ve reached in football.

Tottenham Hotspur Football Club: Vorm, Trippier, Foyth, Vertonghen (C), Walker-Peters, Dembele, Winks, Sissoko, Dele, Son, Llorente.

Subs: Gazzinga, Toby, Dier, Booth, Eriksen, Kane, a Chelsea fan.

      All you Trump haters should take a look at the comments section on that artical, 99% of them are in favor of Trump, the Witch Hillery gets totally slaughtered for her interview with Colbert (who is a complete COCK) read and weep!

    Did Dele have a dig at the fans by cupping his ears? Tut tut…

    Cupping his ears at Theboyhotspur

    Makes a change from cupping his testimonials for the boys.

    How did 4th look?

    • Sexy Beast September 20, 2017 at 9:01 am

      Pure class, the opposition wasn’t up to much but he never made a mistake (that I saw) in the whole game.

      • Aussie in Switzerland September 20, 2017 at 10:13 am

        Cool

    Our good thing is our system. Our bad thing is our system.
    So whats left.
    Plan B……Not Plan Milton Keynes.
    We agree I think

    Yup. One or two players need to step up and start creating. We could do with a magician but they are hard to come by and last time I checked we top scored in the Prem last season? We have it in us

    • ronwol196061 September 20, 2017 at 3:43 am

      Thats the key for sure but meanwhile instead of some people here going on about Wembley it might be useful to thinks that we have enough to do better than we have done the last 2 games and that lets say Eriksen and Dele should be doing this work more so than they are doing as they do have the talent

  • Nick September 20, 2017 at 12:20 am

    Over-egged the headline H “Live” is a bit strong.After the last two performances I’m not sure there’s a pulse.Maybe not time for a DNR just yet but this season could already be on its last legs

    • Harry Hotspur September 20, 2017 at 8:28 am

      Base s upon the periscope clip I wastched we were less live, more like a fish flipping about in a basket at Billingsgate

      • Sexy Beast September 20, 2017 at 9:07 am

        Based on the 90min that I watched your analysis is not far off! 😳

    To think that a team of grown men playing at the highest level would be concerned about where the playing and their performance is sonehow ductating by the fans there.Its fucking nonsense

    Who said the performance was affected by the crowd? And it’s not where they’re playing it’s what they’re playing on. Most of those boys put a shift in game after game. It’s got nothing to do with lack of effort. Constantly comparing them to our boys in the war is ridiculous by the way.

    • ronwol196061🇨🇦 September 20, 2017 at 12:12 am

      I was making a point and its one of focus.They are obviously not focused on these Wembley games as they are Wembley and all those that are adfing to the negative Wembley hype are not helping.
      It has fuck all to do with effort and everything to do with focus.

    • ronwol196061🇨🇦 September 20, 2017 at 12:18 am

      And there has been a huge thing here about we have been affected by the crowd or at Wembley the lack on it at times.Now the crowd is fine but someone the field is a bit too big.
      Its fucking nonsense.

    • ronwol196061🇨🇦 September 20, 2017 at 12:18 am

      Even Poch said its nonsense.

  • Sexy Beast September 19, 2017 at 11:32 pm

    Match report: Just like Swans at home but with a shit goal. Thank goddess there wasn’t extra time. On train for a long journey home.
    Can’t wait for the Bournemouth game 👍
    MoM: Ben Davies (just like Saturday) 😬

  • ronwol196061🇨🇦 September 19, 2017 at 11:26 pm

    The players dont have to hear the fans to play well.Thats BS. They need to play to make their fans happy. And shpuld work their arses off to do that

  • Sexy Beast September 19, 2017 at 11:21 pm

  • ronwol196061🇨🇦 September 19, 2017 at 11:21 pm

    Fuck the crowd and the place.
    Its all about whats in their heads.
    Its really crazy this bullshit about Wembley
    Add the travelling to Europa games.Its all nonsense.
    The only thing after the talent you have is your confidence in what you can do.
    Michael Jordan would have scored and had his team winning playing on a fucking marshmallow

      • gus September 19, 2017 at 11:30 pm

        That’s your first bad assumption Ron, they are physically mature but boys at heart. Pro sportsmen are also often seriously superstitious

        • ronwol196061🇨🇦 September 20, 2017 at 12:15 am

          Yes so its not Wembley its a misconceived superstition.Thats in their heads right?
          Its not Wembley.
          Infact you are implying Wembley is being demonized and I would agree.
          Freedom is the answer.

          • gus September 20, 2017 at 12:55 am

            Yup. Saying that the surface is shit is another thing but as I said on a previous post the soft pitch doesn’t make us play without any oomph, especially as we managed to play very direct a few days earlier

            • ronwol196061 September 20, 2017 at 1:00 am

              Our good thing is our system. Our bad thing is our system.

    • Aussie in Switzerland September 20, 2017 at 7:20 am

      But Tiger woods scored more…..😁

  • Sexy Beast September 19, 2017 at 11:16 pm

    East Stand
    Any more pre match predictions of 4-0 & 5-0 drubbings of ‘lesser’ opposition at Wembley will have now dried up for all but the insane!

    I’m going nil nil home to Bournemouth 👍😂

  • Urbane Sturgeon September 19, 2017 at 11:13 pm

    This, on Tashan Oakley-Boothe, from the Grauniads David Hytner:

    “A skilful, well-balanced and driving midfield player, Oakley-Boothe made his full debut for the club’s under-18 team only in March of this year but he is the sort of person that grabs opportunity by the lapels. He scored one and set up two more in a 7-3 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers and he has since shaped a sharp career trajectory. Capped by England at Under-16 level, he has featured for Tottenham’s under-23s this season. Ticks all of the boxes for the modern midfielder. He covers a lot of ground, wins the ball and passes it smoothly”

    Sounds like the new Carroll or Winks.

    • Urbane Sturgeon September 19, 2017 at 11:16 pm

      Born in 2000 and Poch gave him a sniff against PSG pre season, and again today; clearly fancies him.

    • Harry Hotspur September 20, 2017 at 8:31 am

      U18 – may as well be playing blow football for all the relevance it has

  • gloster1861 September 19, 2017 at 10:58 pm

    So, another famous cup tie win for the Spurs?

    I didn’t watch it myself. The sight of Sissoko masquerading as a player is too much for me now.

    • AccringtonSpurs September 19, 2017 at 11:11 pm

      don’t think anyone saw the game glos – no coverage

    • Still Nil Nil September 19, 2017 at 11:11 pm

      I remember spurs going to see spurs v Burnley who were bottom of the old division 2, at home in the milk cup in ’83 and spurs went 1-0 through terry Gibson.
      A 1-4 defeat later and it didn’t feel great.
      Tonight’s match could’ve been like that.
      But it’s a different spurs in that they didn’t get beat by a shit team regardless of how well or shit spurs played.
      I’ve seen other matches that spurs have thrown, an away defeat to port vale (88?) in the fa cup, the 3-4 fa cup loss at the lane to Man City in the 2000’s after being 3-0 at half time with them down to ten after joey bartongot sent off.
      The 3-5 defeat at the Lane to manure after being 3-0 up at half time.
      0-2 up away at the empties and then losing 5-2 for the second season running.
      Those are spursy results.
      It’s a bit different these days.
      Despite playing at fucking Wembley and no criwd and motivation being in short supply, spurs won.
      There aren’t many positives from Wembley or this cup or the match.
      But that’s one important one.
