An illiterate Everton watched Spurs punctuate this game with energy, wit and some rather mesmeric finishing. 4-0 doesn’t require so much of explanation as an appreciation and there was lots and lots to savour here.

Everton weren’t very good – Sam Allardyce hinted at how hard his boys may or may not be trying – but that’s almost irrelevant because a familiar beef with Spurs is the inability to overcome mediocrity.

Son’s goal was extraordinary because of the instinctively intelligent finish. Watch it again and see how he offers his shoe so the ball does the magical thing that cannot be halted. If Levy could get £50 back on

Aurier either supplied the assist with a remarkable stretch, or it was a failed cross, or he in fact had an aneurism and in a bizarre accident – slotted the ball into the Sarf Korean’s path, dependent upon how twisted your world view is. Whatever occurred, it was more than a bit good.

Other highlights included Mousa ghosting through the Toffee’s midfield, Christian Eriksen doing his usual low key metronome stuff and Dele Alli looking like an effeminate waste of space.

Suddenly it’s Arsenal that are off the pace, no matter what they collect at Bournemouth after lunch. Spurs’ 3 points puts a gentle squeeze on Liverpool who host Man City at four o’clock this afternoon.

We’re Still in this.

    So we passed on Wijnaldum who went to Liverpool for 23 million, and went instead for his hopeless, clumsy, 3 years OLDER, more expensive Newcastle teammate.

    Levy really dropped a big one there.

    I’ve got a feeling VVD is not injured at all, Kopp probably doesn’t want him embarrassed by a 4 or 5-1, or should that be 1-5.
    So take the 75m new buy out save his blushes & get slaughtered without him.
    Even with him Man.C would still win.
    He ain’t even on a level with Toby or Jan or Sanchez come to think of it.

    Sit back & enjoy, forth place is ours in just under 90.

    I’d we can definitely secure another 2nd place this season.
    That would be a brilliant season for us, FA CUP this season would be a bonus & next year a must.

    • DAVID January 14, 2018 at 1:25 pm

      We started the game with a real intensity and maintained it yesterday, the home games we have dropped points in this season have seen us come out of the traps slowly and allowed the opposition to settle.

      And by scoring first, we can settle into our game plan whilst forcing them to change theirs. Very enjoyable watch yesterday

  • DAVID January 14, 2018 at 1:11 pm

    Interesting to see how Liverpool cope without Coutinho, somebody on a football show yesterday said there were stats to show Liverpool picked up more points when he didn’t play , which I find hard to believe but not seen the stats.

    Looking forward to seeing if Klopp can find a plan to derail the City juggernaught.

    • gloster1861 January 14, 2018 at 12:42 pm

      I’m hoping for their keeper to embarrass these wannabes.

    • 61SpursNut🌰 January 14, 2018 at 1:12 pm

      We currently have the same GD, HD so when they lose by whatever score, watch us rise.

  • East Stand January 14, 2018 at 12:31 pm

    The two Prem games today could well both end up draws.

    • Dj January 14, 2018 at 12:42 pm

      CITY to smash the bindippers. COYS.

  • Mattspurs January 14, 2018 at 12:27 pm

    Dembele was immense yesterday

    • East Stand January 14, 2018 at 12:29 pm

      Dier’s assist? Anyone? It’s like it never happened…

      • Matt January 14, 2018 at 12:32 pm

        Dier was excellent yesterday. Hardly put a foot wrong. We’d be mad to sell him and we’re bl@@dy lucky to have him and Wanyama.

      • Not a Real Fan. January 14, 2018 at 1:00 pm

        Dier’s assistwas good bit he also gave up possession in the middle of the pitch near our box when we were wide open. A better side would have scored. Other than that, thought he had a good game.

      • Mattspurs January 14, 2018 at 3:08 pm

        Dier was so strong, Rooney became very frustrated and just kicked him at one point

  • Matt January 14, 2018 at 12:14 pm

    Our entire front 4 cost less than Gylfi. That’s not bad business.

  • East Stand January 14, 2018 at 12:09 pm

    Think Dier’s omission from praise for an (intentional) assist to Kane is telling. He isn’t having a great season but give him. credit where it’s due.

    Aurier’s was good because he’d got into that positioning the first place to shoot, cross, scuff or panic that ball in. Dier’s ball was fucking good…

    • gloster1861 January 14, 2018 at 12:44 pm

      Even when garbage Dier is miles better than Sissoko.

    • Harry Hotspur January 14, 2018 at 12:47 pm

      It wasn’t an agenda thang – I had to walk the dog

      • Not a Real Fan. January 14, 2018 at 12:58 pm

        Did you see Stan Collymore?

        • Harry Hotspur January 14, 2018 at 1:24 pm

          He fucked me for a bit but didn’t say much. I think he was feeling down.

          • DAVID January 14, 2018 at 1:29 pm

            Did he call you Ulrika ? Lucky he didn’t give you a kicking.

            • Harry Hotspur January 14, 2018 at 2:20 pm

              Different syndrome altogether

      • East Stand January 14, 2018 at 1:21 pm

        Fair play.

  • East Stand January 14, 2018 at 12:05 pm

    Looks like an Easy Jet announcement after draft of delayed flights!!

  • Melcyid January 14, 2018 at 12:03 pm

    We were winners yesterday not losers

    • Freund or Foe January 14, 2018 at 12:06 pm

      Every Loser Wins, great song. I’m looking forward to Nick Berry’s next album.

  • Theresa Gay January 14, 2018 at 11:52 am

    Looking better and better with Vic coming back and Toby to be fit soon and even Lamela showing his hunger will allow Dier, Sissoko, Dele to have some rest if it isn’t working for them. Starting with Meaw United until 31 of March vs Chelski we are going to defined our season and team – are we ready to be past more than 2 decades of mideocrity .Hoping for the best prepear for nothing but the best in Spurs we trust-COYS

  • gloster1861 January 14, 2018 at 11:42 am

    If Arsenal drop points, and pool do likewise, t’will have been a grand weekend. Then a leisurely week till Saints, should have a rested and relaxed almost full squad.

    • East Stand January 14, 2018 at 12:17 pm

      It will be Glost but whatever happens this weekend you imagine that if these players come back to full fitness and stay fit that we might be hitting a nice bit of momentum at the right time.

      You could go with the theory that Chavs and Utd are struggling to maintain interest after being ruled out of a title race because both teams are currently geared up for the present and the title won’t be in the present.

      Conte looks like he’s had enough in Chavland already (he had last season) and Maureen lacks the grace to charm his players unless he has a carrot to chase. Liverpool will be busting a gut for top four, albeit without their best attacking player. Firminho has been getting praise but Salah and Coutinho have been playing so well he’s been finding space, we’ll see how he gets on without one of them.

      Arsenal; shit…

      • gloster1861 January 14, 2018 at 12:46 pm

        Coutinho was our Modric. They will miss him badly.

  • Legoverlass January 14, 2018 at 11:40 am

    It’s the same old story if we get back to full strength with Toby back in defence then our first eleven is capable of being a top four side but one or two injuries and it all gets derailed again and that’s why this January window is desperately important to us with the New Destination looming and the vultures circling our squad waiting for us to miss out on a top four slot. We need a couple of good attack minded additions to sustain our momentum all the way to the end of the season as it may well end up being a single point or goal difference that determines the outcome

    • McG ⚽️⚽️ January 14, 2018 at 11:47 am

      Our problems have been down to the loss of defence minded players, not offensive. We need a player who can take people on, but start looking at our bench now & you’ll see a nice level of depth. Could do with an alternative to Llorente, but we looking good. No side in the prem could cope with the loss of Toby, Wanyama, Dembele & Rose, chuck in Walker & there you have it in a nut shell.

      • gloster1861 January 14, 2018 at 11:52 am

        Moyes is talking about selling all his forward line, and I still think Chicarito is a decent goal poacher.

        • East Stand January 14, 2018 at 12:19 pm

          No chance Glost, too old and big wages will put off Levy.

      • Legoverlass January 14, 2018 at 12:18 pm

        Agreed but what if We pick up injuries to our forward players especially Kane. Sonny is on fire but without Kane alongside that would be a massive loss at this stage of the season.

        • East Stand January 14, 2018 at 12:27 pm

          We’d have to go with Llorente and play slightly differently without Kane. Not sure Chicorito would be any more useful in reality coming in in January (which he won’t).

          Would Llorente do a bit better too starting every game in Kane’s absence?

    • Horndog 🇺🇸 January 14, 2018 at 12:16 pm

      We won’t buy anyone, if at all, who has the ability to really make a difference. I have accepted that. What I also accept is that a fit squad with the 3-4 decent reserves we have is going to have to get the job done. That is the way it is. We’re still in this.

      • East Stand January 14, 2018 at 12:23 pm

        January is only for desperate signings, we’ll buy nobody this month. Even think Sissy will stay until the summer for cover…

    • East Stand January 14, 2018 at 12:22 pm

      Don’t see why we shouldn’t aim for 2nd now. Hope the Wembley thing is over but there are just some games where we’d pick up points at The Lane in but that few percent less intensity might cost us. We might have to overturn Liverpool to get top four though, unless Chavs Utd have a melt down…

  • 89Spurs January 14, 2018 at 11:36 am

    Might just do the same, but hope that Bournemouth beat the Arse !

  • Accy January 14, 2018 at 11:30 am

    I might watch the Pool City game. The missus has gone to John Lewis for the day so has no control over the remote. Mwahhaha.

    • McG ⚽️⚽️ January 14, 2018 at 11:49 am

      I’m def gonna have a watch, total goal fest coming up, with some kamakaze defending to boot!!

      • gloster1861 January 14, 2018 at 12:05 pm

        Let’s hope the dipper’s keeper has a nightmare.

    • gloster1861 January 14, 2018 at 11:57 am

      She’s hidden the remote Accy! 😄😄
