Welcome to Tottenham Hotspur versus Manchester City in matchday 34 of the Premier League on Saturday 14th April, 7:45pm at Wembley Stadium.

The mighty Spurs currently sit in 4th place in the table having beaten Stoke City 1-2 last time out, while the visitors are in 1st after their 2-3 loss against Manchester United.

City Hot Away From Home Man City have won 75%, drawn 15% and lost 10% of their last 20 away games. Man City have scored in 95% of their last 20 away games. Man City have kept a clean sheet in 11 of their last 20 away games, going on to win 10 and draw 1 of these matches.

Spurs More Than A Match At Home Spurs have won 75%, drawn 20% and lost 5% of their last 20 home games. Spurs have scored in 95% of their last 20 home games. Spurs have kept a clean sheet in 11 of their last 20 home games, going on to win 10 and draw 1 of these matches.

My Prediction is a 2-0 win to Spurs. Dele All to score the second and final goal of the game.

    We didnt turn up again. There is not much more to say. The media like to go on about how great City were but they looked very vulnerable when Eriksen scored. Lamella was awful with his dithering about. What exactly is his game? Trippier and Davies look like they could play for any bottom of the league team. Not good enough. Losing Alderwereld because he wants more money (JUST FUCKING GIVE IT TO HIM) well – he deserves it doesnt he? Have we forgotten how we look when he plays already? Feel sick today.

    I would sell Lamela in the summer. ok he tries but what does he do?

    • Limerick AL. April 15, 2018 at 10:16 am

      He is Feisty. Feisty is how you describe someone who is not really very good, but runs around a lot. Feisty.

  • Camus April 15, 2018 at 9:24 am

    Got no link but I saw Poch talking about his pride after watching Real vs Juve and how it showed we can compete at the very top.

    He sounded like someone in the very earliest stages of struggling to master the English language. Struggling with the word “Satisfah-tion…” It was remarkable how his grasp of the language had regressed. This is a ruse that foreign managers pull – notice how Wenger still sounds super-French despite having lived here for 20 years and spoken the language fluently every day.
    It’s a defence mechanism.

    • Harry Hotspur April 15, 2018 at 9:26 am

      Anyone who has been abroad extensively knows that people’s English deteriorates at the same rate they don’t want to talk to you…

      • Camus April 15, 2018 at 9:27 am

        Indeed.

  • Dessyspur April 15, 2018 at 9:23 am

    City were very good we were poor
    Sane embarrassed Tripier first half. Thought Trippier was awful

    • David Dillenberg April 15, 2018 at 9:25 am

      Tippier was culpable for the second goal via his sloppy pass which was quicly seized upon resulting in Lloris reckless challenge.

  • Camus April 15, 2018 at 9:13 am

    There should be an investigation into the Toby Alderweireld saga.
    He’s a paid employee that we could have done with yesterday.

    • David Dillenberg April 15, 2018 at 9:15 am

      Fair point but “contract rebels” are simply banished. End of.

    • Mad Carew April 15, 2018 at 9:16 am

      Has Toby tweeted a message of support for the lads yet ? Taking the Mickey he is ! Must have been in stitches during last nights game.

  • David Dillenberg April 15, 2018 at 9:12 am

    Arguably both Davies and Trippier are simply not good enough at this level.

    • Mad Carew April 15, 2018 at 9:13 am

      What do you mean Arguably ? No contest.

    • Dessyspur April 15, 2018 at 9:21 am

      DD I totally agree with you but more Trippier than Davies as I think the Welsh lad has been fantastic at times last season and early part of this one
      Trippier is average at best

  • Camus April 15, 2018 at 9:11 am

    I’m lumping on Lloris & Sanchez to cost us in the semi-final.

    • David Dillenberg April 15, 2018 at 9:14 am

      Big decisions where Poch could be tempted to play Vorm against Manure.

  • Caveman April 15, 2018 at 8:59 am

    If Spurs had money to spend, they would be champions elect.

    • David Dillenberg April 15, 2018 at 9:05 am

      IIMO It helps but does not guarantee winning anything. It’s how you spend the monies what players you recruit moulding them into a team that is crucial. In the summer Guardiola identified their perceived defensive weaknesses in the summer by buying Walker and a good keeper in pursuit of the title.
      Currently Liverpool are probably Citeh’s closest challengers.

      • Caveman April 15, 2018 at 9:06 am

        It’s all about money.

        • David Dillenberg April 15, 2018 at 9:08 am

          Hang on. At the time Leicester City bucked the trend by deservedly winning the PL title on a shoestring!

          • Camus April 15, 2018 at 9:09 am

            Not the ‘fairytale’ again 🤡

            • David Dillenberg April 15, 2018 at 9:10 am

              True but the one occasion you felt we had our best chance ever of delivering silverware we fluffed our lines!

        • Camus April 15, 2018 at 9:08 am

          Yup.

  • Mad Carew April 15, 2018 at 8:44 am

    The only one to blame is POCH Mr Corbyn, Theresa had no option, the justification is clearly Prevention Of Catastrophie Humanitaire (as Macron so succintly put it). Bad Saturday for POCH ! Hope he got the Grand National Winner.

    • David Dillenberg April 15, 2018 at 8:59 am

      Why blame anybody yesterday? Even minus Aguero dominant Citeh making Spurs look ordinary were simply a class act when after the early exchanges you could sense there was only likely to be one outcome and so it proved.

      • Caveman April 15, 2018 at 9:01 am

        Money money money. That’s what won it.

        • Caveman April 15, 2018 at 9:04 am

          the title was bought. They even had our left back out there ffs

      • Mad Carew April 15, 2018 at 9:11 am

        DD Man City were nowhere near their best, the fact is Spurs were well below par, not just a couple of players but 10 of them let the side down, where was the fight, the passion ? You can’t just say they were better, we made them look so much better, the space Sane was finding on the left was scandalous and Silva had time to run the show.

        • David Dillenberg April 15, 2018 at 9:18 am

          Fair point but the gulf in class was painful to watch!

          • David Dillenberg April 15, 2018 at 9:22 am

            Home and away against Spurs we were simply not at the races. Citehs’s work ethic, closing down, incisive triangle passing passing nullifying both Dembele and Eriksen starved Kane of service who could have done with LLorente or Kaziah Sterling by his side.

  • 61SpursNut🌰 April 15, 2018 at 8:02 am

    Caspurs♿️
    Jeez, I think I’ll return once everyone’s finished slashing their wrists.

    To be fair Cas, we’re on a dreadful run of form. We’ve lost 100% of our last game.

    • SpurAndy 🍒π April 15, 2018 at 8:41 am

      I’m shocked and appalled.

    • SeattleSpursGuy April 15, 2018 at 8:43 am

      Could have sworn it was 200%

      • 61SpursNut🌰 April 15, 2018 at 9:51 am

        Actually, your right. We lost 100% of the first half and 100% of the 2nd half. By my reckoning that’s 200% as well.

    • Harry Hotspur April 15, 2018 at 9:27 am

      Brilliant

  • Caveman April 15, 2018 at 7:52 am

    Poch is in controversy with too many players now that it effecting the team in a negative way. He should reinstate Toby, start Moura, drop both Lamela and Lloris for the cup semi semi-final but he won’t. I’m pissed off with Poch right now and do think he’s a bit of a one trick pony. Sure looking forward to Harry’s take on the whole shenanigans.

  • DAVID April 15, 2018 at 7:33 am

    The morning after the night before. ..
    Not so much the defeat but the manor of it,they were so much better than us in every department, passing, movement,pressing, they made us look slow and ponderous for most of the match and they weren’t at full strength.
    Hugo seems to be increasingly error prone and Sanchez inexperience and lack of positional awareness was frightening at times.
    Only one game but something of a reality check.

  • TheCincinnatiYid April 15, 2018 at 6:28 am

    Not quite, SSG. . . .I’d love to know
    1. why they continue to start slow in big games
    2. Why Poch gives time to Sissy instead of Moura (not this game)
    3. Which team will show up against Manure

  • Tappaspur April 15, 2018 at 6:26 am

    The worlds still turning

  • SeattleSpursGuy April 15, 2018 at 4:08 am

    Jesus, is the pants pissing done?

    • Harry Hotspur April 15, 2018 at 10:19 am

      Still squeezing the last few gallons out!

  • Nick April 15, 2018 at 2:55 am

    So on reflection I had little belief we would get a result & so it came to pass,which we couldn’t.Against Chelsea I didn’t believe either but the boys proved me wrong.ESPN gave City players 7-9s out of 10,I don’t think they were that good even Sterling got an 8 !He won’t get more than one chance a game at the World Cup.Espn Give Lloris 3 kane 4 both more than generous I think.Im hoping this was the boys keeping their powder dry for the semi final.only time will tell

  • Hartley™ April 15, 2018 at 2:03 am

    I saw hope when Sissoko replaced Dele Alli.

    • JackDLad April 15, 2018 at 2:04 am

      Alli was non existent

  • Hartley™ April 15, 2018 at 1:52 am

    If we swapped Lloris for a blind pig it would be an improvement.

    • paul April 15, 2018 at 2:04 am

      Piggy McCataract has just been released

    • JackDLad April 15, 2018 at 2:04 am

      Lloris was a deer in headlights.

  • Hartley™ April 15, 2018 at 1:49 am

    Son is shit but he is fit.
    Harry Kane isn’t.

    • JackDLad April 15, 2018 at 2:05 am

      Son is…well son is son

  • Hartley™ April 15, 2018 at 1:48 am

    David Dillenberg
    IMo Moura should have started and replaced Lamela at HT.

    \

    please

  • Caspurs♿️ April 15, 2018 at 12:24 am

    Jeez, I think I’ll return once everyone’s finished slashing their wrists.

    • Ronwol1960-61 April 15, 2018 at 12:44 am

      I saw probably 3/4ths of the game.Very glad Moura had a chance.

      • David Dillenberg April 15, 2018 at 12:46 am

        IMo Moura should have started and replaced Lamela at HT.

        • MysteriousStranger April 15, 2018 at 12:48 am

          Impossible.

          • AntSpurs April 15, 2018 at 1:03 am

            Lucas was excellent. I see him playing with Son, Eriksen Dele and Lamela

            • AntSpurs April 15, 2018 at 1:04 am

              The ossie formation

      • AntSpurs April 15, 2018 at 1:06 am

        Did you see Lucas Ron? He was superb

        • ronwol96061 April 15, 2018 at 1:55 am

          Yes he has great control and vision

  • Randy Lee April 15, 2018 at 12:05 am

    Unfortunately we can’t afford to have 10 players have really shit performances against good teams, yes I count 10 players today in that starting 11 who were fucking awful, jan vertonghen was the only player who did well but fuck it hey let’s not pay the best defender in the leuage what he wants so he can eventually leave we clearly don’t need him anymore,let’s also buy players who won’t get a look in until the following season as our beddin in process is world renowned. Let’s also play with wing backs who aren’t really wing backs because we sold one of the wings back we did have so he could win things and the other unfortunately got fat and forgot how to play football.
    Dier is just that imo, Lamela is a impact sub that is all and should be starting ahead of son, not really surprised with Ali’s performances same old shit. As for Kane I didn’t even realise he was on the pitch. Ah well biggest game of our season next week!

    Over to you Poch.

    • David Dillenberg April 15, 2018 at 12:07 am

      Select Moura against Manure for starters!

      • Randy Lee April 15, 2018 at 12:16 am

        Get the marquee quality signing we need to take the next step, otherwise we will not be winning jack

        • David Dillenberg April 15, 2018 at 12:18 am

          Liverpool have (Salah and Van Djik)

          • East Stand April 15, 2018 at 2:45 pm

            Salah a great signing, Van Djik is an overpriced reasonable central defender. Wouldn’t swap him for any of ours, apart from Foyth and that might even be jumping the gun…

        • JackDLad April 15, 2018 at 2:14 am

          You won’t be winning me, no. Upsetting game today. We are alot better then what we showed today. Peoples emotions on the site showed that by reactions on here. Today, we deserved nothing. We did not show up! Some players need to take a look at themselves.

  • Lilywhite without the ll April 14, 2018 at 11:58 pm

    We play some great stuff, won some great games and the last 8 years or so have seen some unbelievable moments of joy and games won, but we are a nearly club, a wanner b big club, a stepping stone……so how do we take the next jump…who fucking knows, but I’m sure ENIC don’t either….

    • East Stand April 15, 2018 at 12:13 am

      ENIC know but they aren’t prepared to commit…

    • Ronwol1960-61 April 15, 2018 at 12:29 am

      Its not over yet.I would agree with some that especially regarding winning things. I mean to start of Id rather be us than Leicester and they have won things. There is still time to improve and grow.

  • IrishSpurs April 14, 2018 at 11:54 pm

    Ok im a supporter that cant go to all games because of logistics but i wud love to be there every “home” game but this was a game that i genuinely thought we would win – we were found out and as i said before (and im goin next week) i think we will be found out again – if we cud pay toby the money he deserves we r a better team – money talks folks

  • Lilywhite without the ll April 14, 2018 at 11:49 pm

    Find a compromise to keep Toby and make him captain. If not make Jan captain (I love u), if not make Kane captain, if not make Erik captain, if not make Mousa captain, if not make…………

    • David Dillenberg April 14, 2018 at 11:54 pm

      Compared to Lloris, when you think of Spurs best captains in the past they have had an aura about then – the likes of Mackay, Perryman, Mabutt, Ledley King. As a good a keeper LLoris thinks he is IMO he is not a natural leader.

    • Limerick AL. April 14, 2018 at 11:56 pm

      The Best Defense in the PL is close to being dismantled and substituted with Journey Men. Hugo is passed it, but Poch believes his own Hype and must think that he can put together another defense , Poch is in La La land.

  • East Stand April 14, 2018 at 11:21 pm

    Double annoyed as we clearly let Citeh play in the manner they wanted to.

    We were shit, psychologicaly inferior or something? Fuck knows, Citeh bring out the ‘Spursy’ in us.

    Liverpool aren’t better than us and neither are Manure as we’ve seen both off with relative ease at home this season.

    We just haven’t had the bollocks to beat the soon to be Champions, just as we didn’t manage to beat Leicester that season.

    We aren’t yet psychologically tough enough to mount any kind of league challenge, let alone the zero net spend…

    • Lilywhite without the ll April 14, 2018 at 11:41 pm

      The problem is our mentally strong players move on (get sold), well, to win stuff, so we end up with a never ending story of………………….nearly

      • Limerick AL. April 14, 2018 at 11:49 pm

        Get used to it. Spurs Captain is the first problem, mentally Strong ? He is a Bottler. A Bag of Nerves and a Fucking Wimp.

        • JackDLad April 15, 2018 at 2:22 am

          Unfortunately he is a mute and seems to be growing in his fackups. I am aware that keepers are not infallible. Without goals games are not won. If goalkeepers saved 100% of the time, football would be boring as hell BUT, Lloris is becoming prone to them. This irks me greatly!

  • David Dillenberg April 14, 2018 at 11:00 pm

    They bring on Mendy. We bring on Sissy. Says it all really!

  • Tappaspur April 14, 2018 at 10:46 pm

    We lost a game to the future champions. Get over it.

    • David Dillenberg April 14, 2018 at 10:48 pm

      Yes but once again it was the manner of the defeat that hurts.
      Aggregate score 7-2.

      • AntSpurs April 14, 2018 at 10:56 pm

        Before tonight it was 6-1 to us in the last 2 home games

        • AntSpurs April 14, 2018 at 10:57 pm

          Against Shitty

        • David Dillenberg April 14, 2018 at 10:58 pm

          Hopefully the wheels don’t start to come off but watching it with both Poxy and Joyce fear the worst against Manure.

          • Limerick AL. April 14, 2018 at 11:35 pm

            Join the Club. There are too many Duds in this side and I could not care less about what has gone on this Season. Utd are Winners, its in their DNA. Poch feels like a Winner, there is a big difference. Brighton on Tuesday will be no Cake Walk.

        • MysteriousStranger April 14, 2018 at 11:01 pm

          And in the two home games before that it was 6-1 to them. Let’s deal with the now. They’ve dicked us twice this season.

      • TyredMan 🚯 April 14, 2018 at 11:01 pm

        Yes exactly the manner, that was pathetic. Wait all fuckin week to watch that shit.

        • David Dillenberg April 14, 2018 at 11:03 pm

          The quick incisive interchanging passing was a major difference.

    • Harry Hotspur April 14, 2018 at 11:16 pm

      Shove your One Love bollocks back up into your cavity. I trust I make myself clear and you resist the urge to protest.

      • AntSpurs April 14, 2018 at 11:56 pm

        Is this for me. Just askin?

        • AntSpurs April 14, 2018 at 11:58 pm

          I’m as passionate as any other fucker.

        • David Dillenberg April 14, 2018 at 11:59 pm

          Presumably it was for DD (Joyce ref) but after years on the blog I have toughened up!

  • David Dillenberg April 14, 2018 at 10:42 pm

    Hello chaps. No disgraced losing to champions elect but a harsh reality check when outplayed and outclassed in every department. Shocking first half. Better second half. We tried but ultimately not good enough where the gulf in class was obvious to see. Sadly the game passed both ineffective Dembele and Eriksen by and never seen Kane look so anonymous.

    • East Stand April 14, 2018 at 11:38 pm

      Just ‘outclassed’, end of discussion?

      How come Liverpool weren’t outclassed or Utd weren’t outclassed? We beat both of them at home.

      No, we lost focus and hopped that the form book would win the game tonight.

      Teams that do that lack leaders and character, this is our number one issue.

      Talking of number ones, when is this bullshit idea of keeping Loris as skipper going to be questioned?

      • David Dillenberg April 14, 2018 at 11:40 pm

        Strip Lloris of his captaincy and replace him with whom?

        • Limerick AL. April 14, 2018 at 11:44 pm

          A Goalkeeper.

          • David Dillenberg April 14, 2018 at 11:46 pm

            Perhaps it’s time for Lloris to move on and replace him with the current Burnley keeper?

            • Limerick AL. April 14, 2018 at 11:50 pm

              Thats a Start, David.

        • East Stand April 14, 2018 at 11:59 pm

          Loris is a good enough keeper, not sure who we could buy to replace him that would be better. My issue is with him being skipper.

          Might explain these slow starts, your skipper needs to be on the outfield leading by example driving the team on.

          Loris the keeper is fine, Loris the skipper, only as a backup.

          • David Dillenberg April 15, 2018 at 12:03 am

            IMO LLoris from of late has badly regressed.

            • David Dillenberg April 15, 2018 at 12:04 am

              *form

            • East Stand April 15, 2018 at 12:09 am

              You’re right D, he hasn’t been as good this season but all keepers have dips in form, as do all players. The main issue has to be the captain’s role.

              How do you pick Vorm over him down to form when he’s the club captain?

              It’s a dysfunctional situation and it needs to be addressed, it’s bullshit…

              • David Dillenberg April 15, 2018 at 12:14 am

                Irrespective of whether he is captain or not IMO reputations count for nothing.
                If LLoris deserves to be dropped he should be dropped and replaced by Vorm against Manure. Thats fine with me where ruthless managers are paid to make tough decisions as in this case.

      “hope for the best”

    • paul April 14, 2018 at 10:24 pm

      Come on Irish, we’ve got a genuine shout next week and you’ve got to think Poch and the players will want to put in a proper performance next week. This wasn’t Spursy, we were outplayed by a better team and out tic-tacc’d by a better manager

      • IrishSpurs April 14, 2018 at 10:48 pm

        We are the better team and on paper are favourites but we still have that weakness – im always positive about spurs but i have a feeling after 2nite wr dont have “it”

        • MysteriousStranger April 14, 2018 at 11:12 pm

          It must be nice being better than the team we’re 4 points behind, what with this supposedly worse team also having played a game less than us in the League. Levy can take down those “THE GAME IS ABOUT GLORY” signs and change them out for ones that say “THE GAME IS ABOUT WHATEVER POSITIVE SPIN YOU FEEL LIKE PUTTING ON IT ON ANY GIVEN DAY”.

      Hey Irish how much did you win on Tiger Roll. I won £11.

      • AntSpurs April 14, 2018 at 10:26 pm

        Bowled in with my chest puffed out .

        • AntSpurs April 14, 2018 at 10:27 pm

          Cockerel , he who dares and all that. Andere Est Facere, same in only fools and horses.

          • AntSpurs April 14, 2018 at 10:28 pm

            We got our own Del Boy.

      • IrishSpurs April 14, 2018 at 10:54 pm

        £20 on at 12/1 – the pub i drink in was all on him – trained for that race – just need the luck to get round

    • East Stand April 15, 2018 at 12:10 am

      Please no, but I hear you Irish. Limping into 4th just might be the glorious conclusion to our season…

  • Lilywhite without the ll April 14, 2018 at 10:21 pm

    “Craig Bellamy”, you may as well bring in a drunk Man City fan in to talk the same shit as he does..

  • TheCincinnatiYid April 14, 2018 at 10:21 pm

    Bad call on the penalty, but they were the better team and deserved the win. Sanchez was not up to it on managing their long balls. Toby is gone, but Sanchez is not ready to replace him. He was hot and cold and the cold cost us two goals.

    Can’t understand why Moura does not get more tome on the pitch. He is a commanding p,Ayer with good passes, good positional sense, self confidence and a strong shot. Sissy cannot tie his boots.

    Harry was offsides at least four times. He cant be 100%.

    • AntSpurs April 14, 2018 at 10:30 pm

      Was surprised by that shot. Had great ball control to accompany his dribbling. Thought he was gonna do a Ricky Villa. That ball to Erik was sublime

      • AntSpurs April 14, 2018 at 10:31 pm

        *Eriksen

        • AntSpurs April 14, 2018 at 10:31 pm

          He’ll run rings round that Utd defence

          • AntSpurs April 14, 2018 at 10:33 pm

            When our boys hit his wavelength there will be some Johan Sebastian Bach shit going down. He’s a real talent no doubt.

  • paul April 14, 2018 at 10:19 pm

    Well played Poch in the post-match, hands-up, no waffle and giving credit where credit is due.

  • Al April 14, 2018 at 10:16 pm

    Let’s hear it for the lads who celebrate their valiant boys in defeat

    (Rather than calling out what the grown ups/folk who watched football before sky sports existed, can see)

    • 61SpursNut🌰 April 14, 2018 at 10:19 pm

      Fakorf!

      • Lilywhite without the ll April 14, 2018 at 10:21 pm

        haha, he makes me seem like a happy clapper

  • Horndog 🇺🇸 April 14, 2018 at 10:10 pm

    Won’t fault the effort but they were better and their set up was better.

  • Al April 14, 2018 at 10:09 pm

    Surely he just proves why we shouldn’t have behaved so cretinously towards Toby?

    Raw materials yes but many a mistake still in him. What, one in two or three he makes a fairly large error? I accept we shouldn’t really blame him (willingness to take the huge wage and big move aside) but at the end of the day, he does not start for a title winning side. WHICH IS LUCKY COS WE AINT ONE.

    I feel sad.

    • AntSpurs April 14, 2018 at 10:22 pm

      No sweat Al, we were beaten by a better team in the evening, no more. We are a force and we’ve proved that this season no matter what happens. We have Utd to stick it to now and I think that played a part on our boys minds this evening. Small margins the penalty etc but we started slowly is all. Pep had his players reved and we were asleep by which point we were done. Too late. We could have hit ‘em ala Juve in the first leg. It doesn’t matter, there’s boys are the champions and no one else could do that to us. We live and learn and we learnt a lesson tonight. Our team is almost ‘brilliant’ we just need to move on and win the FA. Arse and Chelsea at the real cunts.

  • Lilywhite without the ll April 14, 2018 at 10:07 pm

    Jose Mourinho must be texting his players tonight..”its only Tottenham” 😚

    • paul April 14, 2018 at 10:11 pm

      Maureen has been working tirelessly on his plans for us since minute one after the semi-final draw, that match is H U G E

  • VikingSpurs April 14, 2018 at 10:05 pm

    Our fullbacks are just not good enough to compete with the best teams. We need also wanyama and Toby back at there best.

    • Tappaspur April 14, 2018 at 10:12 pm

      Yes. Ikke godt

      • Tappaspur April 14, 2018 at 10:13 pm

        Men. Yeg elsker min hold

  • Lilywhite without the ll April 14, 2018 at 10:04 pm

    Its not the score or the losing, its how we played, then its how you make changes if things are not working…the players were nervous but why, and Poch let us down tonight…

  • paul April 14, 2018 at 10:00 pm

    If Poch trots out ‘unlucky’ at any point in his post match i’ll do my nut. He should just hold his hands up for once.

    • Al April 14, 2018 at 10:03 pm

      Hear hear

  • paul April 14, 2018 at 9:54 pm

    Fack, Sanchez is quick! Nervy yes but overall 1st season in EPL at his age and being dropped straight in, he gets my vote, hopefully will only get better.

  • Ronan April 14, 2018 at 9:47 pm

    Lacklustre performance, against a team that arrived mentally fragile and more physically tired. We’ve also started looking disorganized at the back.

    • AntSpurs April 14, 2018 at 9:48 pm

      City weren’t fragile tonight.

      • Ronan April 14, 2018 at 9:49 pm

        No, that was us.

        • AntSpurs April 14, 2018 at 9:51 pm

          I agree.

  • Lilywhite without the ll April 14, 2018 at 9:46 pm

    Hugo is lucky to be on the pitch so pointless moaning about the penalty..

    • AntSpurs April 14, 2018 at 9:49 pm

      That’ll tackle is a yellow all night long. It’s was outside.

      • Lilywhite without the ll April 14, 2018 at 9:51 pm

        studs up, launching tackle…

        • AntSpurs April 14, 2018 at 9:52 pm

          Studs down is the same for me and we got hit a few times. He made a genuine attempt to get the ball and there were enough defenders covering for it to not be a red.

          • AntSpurs April 14, 2018 at 9:54 pm

            The redness shoulda been sent off the cunt. He was shit .

            • AntSpurs April 14, 2018 at 9:55 pm

              *ref

              • Lilywhite without the ll April 14, 2018 at 9:57 pm

                👍

            • MysteriousStranger April 14, 2018 at 11:19 pm

              He was. Should have sent Davies off, shouldn’t he?

    • Nick April 14, 2018 at 9:50 pm

      What’s lucky about having a walking nervous breakdown on the pitch.we played with 10 anyway,Kane,9 would’ve made a better job

  • paul April 14, 2018 at 9:44 pm

    It’s seriously disappointing that in both EPL ties against shitty we’ve let ourselves down both times with poor performances/tactics

    • Lilywhite without the ll April 14, 2018 at 9:45 pm

      see for me I make it 3…I sat in a bar in Boston to watch the pre season with some local Spurs boys and we got rinsed then as well…….

      • Accy April 14, 2018 at 9:47 pm

        IIRC it was 0-0 at half time though we defended resolutely for the first 45.

        Then Poch made 6 subs and brought on the kids. We lost 3-0.

        ?

        • Lilywhite without the ll April 14, 2018 at 9:49 pm

          I concur ?

    • AntSpurs April 14, 2018 at 9:46 pm

      Pep made so many tactical changes I almost went blind. Its a great tactic on its own.

      • Lilywhite without the ll April 14, 2018 at 9:47 pm

        its constant, micro managing at its best, pro-active…

      • paul April 14, 2018 at 9:48 pm

        Yeah but Ant he’s really just a shit manager because he didn’t do his time at a shit club with no money ;’)

        • AntSpurs April 14, 2018 at 9:50 pm

          Hahaha yeah he’s shit

  • AntSpurs April 14, 2018 at 9:43 pm

    Some team, some manager, REPSEC to these boys they are the only team to do us over like that. Shitty penalty decision but also Moura looks some player. It’s all good. We’d have turned over most that performance. Congrats City but we’ll see you next year.

    • AntSpurs April 14, 2018 at 9:44 pm

      Davinson is shit hot too.

  • caveman April 14, 2018 at 9:42 pm

    Lamela did nowt tonight. It’s to unleash Lucas.

    • Blackfish April 14, 2018 at 9:43 pm

      all of them were shite apart from Jan. why single out one player.

      • caveman April 14, 2018 at 9:43 pm

        Because he doesn’t warrant a start over Moura.

        • Blackfish April 14, 2018 at 9:45 pm

          Its good poch is the manager.

      • Blackfish April 14, 2018 at 9:43 pm

        was kane even in the starting 11?

  • JackDLad April 14, 2018 at 9:42 pm

    Upsetting as we should have given them a better game, we are capable of it. Unfortunately we did not show up until the second half and even then we looked like we had no bite. Obvious as day that Kane is not fit! Lloris is looking like Gomes more and more. Our wing backs were pitiful, Dele never graced us with his usual 30 minutes. Jan was the only player worth a rating!

  • Al April 14, 2018 at 9:41 pm

    Let’s just win all our remaining games, that’ll do me. 👍

  • Al April 14, 2018 at 9:40 pm

    United beat them
    Liverpool beat them
    WIGAN beat them

    Remember that when the usual crowd justify this result for the next seven days…

    • paul April 14, 2018 at 9:42 pm

      FFS AL everyone has a bogey team and theire is Pooh, the manure result was high stakes, winning EPL at a canter at their local rivlas place, ii don’t begrudge them some nerves, outside of that the’yve been flawless and played the best footie in europe all season

      • Al April 14, 2018 at 10:12 pm

        Paul, mate. Was there a better time to play them? Are Liverpool a much better side than us? Man United? Then why have they humiliated us three times this season (inc. the pre season pumping)?

        Come on. We choke. There’s no argument.

        • paul April 14, 2018 at 10:16 pm

          We’ve definitely not covered ourselves in glory against them Al, that’s what’s so disappointing but what i’m getting at is this myth that City ‘ain’t all that’, they are and then some. Best team and best football in Europe all season long imho. Worthy champions

  • Frontwheel 2 April 14, 2018 at 9:40 pm

    Bathy ready time,I’ll leave you all to stew.

  • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? April 14, 2018 at 9:39 pm

    Oh well. At least we ain’t been missiled to fuck

    • AntSpurs April 14, 2018 at 9:47 pm

      You know 😀

    • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? April 14, 2018 at 9:47 pm

      We have been misled to fuck

  • YidInExile April 14, 2018 at 9:39 pm

    Very nervy from us today, the lads know we got done proper, outplayed more than outclassed

    They are worthy champions

    And this highline & Davies n Sanchez is iffy as fuck

    • Al April 14, 2018 at 9:40 pm

      Really boring comment. THEY WERE ON THE RACK

  • caveman April 14, 2018 at 9:39 pm

    Poch isn’t smart. He gets it wrong so so often.

  • Camus April 14, 2018 at 9:38 pm

    Fear, too much respect and pride.
    Poch’s 3 biggest weaknesses.

  • caveman April 14, 2018 at 9:37 pm

    Moura should be starting games. He’s very good.

    • daytripper April 14, 2018 at 9:38 pm

      I agree, he played 10 minutes and had four more completed forward passes than Lamela.

    • Ronwol196061 April 14, 2018 at 9:39 pm

      absolutely

    • paul April 14, 2018 at 9:39 pm

      I’d say he’s just about shown enough now to warrant a start cavey

      • Lilywhite without the ll April 14, 2018 at 9:41 pm

        Yes, so again, the question is why doesn’t Poch play these players…??

        • Lilywhite without the ll April 14, 2018 at 9:42 pm

          he can’t get a game against average opposition….its desperation on Poch’s part

          • paul April 14, 2018 at 9:42 pm

            Search me!

  • Frontwheel 2 April 14, 2018 at 9:37 pm

    First league loss since away to this mob mid December,not too shabby
