Because he’d rather go to the movies.

Tonight’s daft replay against the might Rochdale goes ahead despite the threat of some snow, death and destruction**.

Poch has of course wasted no time in wasting the opportunity to announce how please he is that this game was taking place.

“I’m happy because it’s a good opportunity, like I’ve said before, to use all the squad, for them to feel important and part of the project. Of course, our mentality is to try to go to the next stage of the competition and that is why we need to win.”

Every cloud eh? Except if he does ‘use all the squad’ there’s a better than good chance Spurs will be out the cubby the time the rest of us are tucking into our cocoa tonight.

I would advise Mr Pochettino to get over his bad self and play his best starting XI and once Tottingham are 2 or 3 to the good and the visitors are thoroughly demoralised, then beginning mixing in the mediocrity.


**Bizarrely, THFC have seized upon the whole ‘weather’ clucking business to request that people don’t bring bags. This is surely a piece of opportunistic nonsense to speed up the admission of fans, which flies in the face of guidance from numerous outlets sensibly advising that people guard against the cold by making sure that they keep topped up with warming fluids, sufficient food and extra clothing if they need it.

On a night when one might what to take a small flask, a piece of fruit or some sweets and a hat, gloves and scarf for the famously painful journey there and back it smacks of a cynical ploy to keep the Wembley snack queues filled.

      A few chips from Moura to Llorente might help

      No is he any good?

      • Real Fan? February 28, 2018 at 7:02 pm

        Was getting praise after scoring a couple for the Academy. Defo a future captain.

      • Superspoz 🏆 February 28, 2018 at 7:03 pm

        Is he any good? IS HE ANY GOOD? He only scored a hatrick against arsenal. He’s the nuts DD.

          Surely surely surely it was an opportune moment to play Keziah Sterling?

            Surely not

            • caveman February 28, 2018 at 6:58 pm

      • David Dillenberg February 28, 2018 at 6:51 pm

        I would have played Moura from the start.

        • David Dillenberg February 28, 2018 at 6:51 pm

          Senior moment he is playing. Just testing!

          • Real Fan? February 28, 2018 at 6:52 pm

            Haha, good save!

            • David Dillenberg February 28, 2018 at 6:54 pm

      Dont re

  • Caspurs♿️ February 28, 2018 at 6:43 pm

    I have formulated a cunning plan, watch the game until 9, then simultaneously watch Babylon 5 (volume up) and the game (muted), me da man!

      What happens if we are winning?

      • Superspoz 🏆 February 28, 2018 at 6:46 pm

        Depends how much atmosphere the 26 people going can create.

        • ronwol196061🇨🇦 February 28, 2018 at 6:47 pm

          26 ? did we kill 2 Rochdale supporters?

    • David Dillenberg February 28, 2018 at 6:45 pm

      It’s must dreaded nightmare scenario the match is decided on penalties!

      • Superspoz 🏆 February 28, 2018 at 6:47 pm

        Get a grip man.

        • David Dillenberg February 28, 2018 at 6:50 pm

          Rest assured Rochdale are no mugs. All the pressure is on us not them.

          • Real Fan? February 28, 2018 at 6:52 pm

            It is from you. They will be feeling plenty of pressure not wanting to take a very public to king a5 Wembley.

  • Rimsky Korsucoff February 28, 2018 at 6:23 pm

    John Major is a Cunt, he always was a Cunt and he always will be a Cunt.
    Lucas Moura to score first, then Fernando Llorente.
    Vorm
    Trippier
    Foyth
    Dier
    Rose
    Wanyama
    Winks
    Moura
    Sissoko
    Son
    Llorente
    4-0 would suffice

    • 89Spurs 👁 February 28, 2018 at 6:25 pm

      Where did you get this info from! The team or John Major?

    • David Dillenberg February 28, 2018 at 6:27 pm

      Why do I get the distinct impression you are anti John Major!

      • 89Spurs 👁 February 28, 2018 at 6:30 pm

        Years of training. The way it’s worded perhaps.

        • David Dillenberg February 28, 2018 at 6:36 pm

          Come come my principal gripe with JM is that compared to MT he was a very weak PM like TM not cut out for the job.

    • ronwol196061🇨🇦 February 28, 2018 at 6:34 pm

      We need a good captain not a major

      • Rimsky Korsucoff February 28, 2018 at 6:37 pm

        Give Sissoko the Armband tonight, it might just be the making of him, after all he will be the highest paid player in the starting eleven.

        • David Dillenberg February 28, 2018 at 6:38 pm

          Harry Winks nudge nudge

  • David Dillenberg February 28, 2018 at 5:32 pm

    Watching the match solo this eve when any side featuring Sissy and Llorente inspires little confidence plus poor reflection of our academy. Don’t blame Levy but Poch’s team selection if it goes wrong!

      We’re also playing 2 matches on a Friday night and one on a Monday. Is it good for a majority fans & supporters, or is it good for business, or both?

      Don’t look to TV companies, the Premier League or the FA for qualifying stats on this issue.

    This is the team that is not going to start tonight. It’s a 433, a system which we don’t use.
    The front 3 is lamela son and moura. The midfield is winks and sissoko either side of wanyama with foyth and sanches in front of vorm and rose and aurier as the full backs.

  • OrganicPaper February 28, 2018 at 4:04 pm

    Im not on board with the best XI having to start. With no Toby and no Jan I do really see this as another opportunity to get Foyth some more game time. He has looked OK so far and the lad needs minutes to develop.
    The fact is our worst 11 is more than capable of beating Rochdale and we should be able to use the entire squad. Dembele is better off saving his energy for the weekend and Juve so I’d not start him.

    Perfect opportunity for Moura to get some more minutes too.

    I can see the logic in going large from the off tonight but I think he should pick an identical team as last time (injuries?) and tell them to get the fucking job done properly this time. Only that way will we see if they’ve got the minerals and also the desire to prove something. They should certainly have the quality.

  • legoverlass February 28, 2018 at 3:44 pm

    For God’s sake Pooch put a strong side out the first half and make sure they are awake when the match starts. Get a 2/3 goal lead then don’t wait until the 75th minute change the players over early in the second half and defend the lead and see the game out. I would deffo play Moura and Son on opposite flanks and tell them to rip them apart in the first half. Start with Kane get down the flanks and put in some decent crosses. You know the ones that actually get past the defender.Kano will get on the end of some and it will be job done. Moura and Son at Wembley should have a field day in the wider areas than existed at Rochdale. There is no excuse we have to win this and dispose of Swansea so we get a semi-final spot.

    • gloster1861 February 28, 2018 at 2:33 pm

      I’d say five nil against Rochdale was overkill.

      1. We don’t need to humiliate a lowly opponent. We’re not Arsenal or Liverpool, who are flat track bullies emphasising their wonderfulness.
      2. There are no prizes for scoring more than is necessary to win and settle the tie. A two nil cushion would knock their stuffing out for the last few minutes.
      3. Save the legs and play in second gear after scoring a couple.

      Ron, I hear you but the simple fact of the matter is that our ‘cup XI’ is useless, even against lower league opposition. We’ve already seen this a couple of times.

      • ronwol196061🇨🇦 February 28, 2018 at 2:47 pm

        Our team in general has splutered and fluttered against smaller opposition.
        Thats THE problem

      • ronwol196061🇨🇦 February 28, 2018 at 2:49 pm

        Thats why its difficult to pick the team

        Pick the hungriest players and devour the fuckers

  • Camus February 28, 2018 at 2:20 pm

    Fully agree, H. Our ‘cup XI’ cannot be relied upon to get the job done, so we ought to start with Eriksen, Kane and Dele and then withdraw them when we’re 3 goals up.
    If Poch starts with the ‘cup XI’ again, I foresee some big deja vu going on and a very frustrating first 70mins.

        They issued the same warnings to not bring a bag if possible for all the CL games. I can only presume they are anticipating a few stewards might go missing tonight but everyone with a £10 ticket is going to bother going. Either that or that people delayed in arriving at Wembley may be subjected to further delays getting into the stadium with bag searches. It’s daft really.

  • Ronwol1960-61 February 28, 2018 at 1:38 pm

  • Ronwol1960-61 February 28, 2018 at 1:26 pm

    No need to play the best XI but we do need to get things rolling without Kane.
    This is a game where we shouldn’t be so afraid to try new things to open things up a bit. Put pressure on Dele to actually play by putting him up top and have Moura and Lamela or Eriksen in support.
    Davies needs to stay back and Tripps up and down

    • Harry Hotspur February 28, 2018 at 1:40 pm

    Pretty much every bozo who played the previous game with the exception of Foyth has played PL minutes this season – if they can’t get the job done second time out they should think about a new club (apart from Rose who seems to do nothing else)

  • TheCincinnatiYid February 28, 2018 at 1:23 pm

    “I would advise Mr Pochettino to get over his bad self and play his best starting XI and once Tottingham are 2 or 3 to the good and the visitors are thoroughly demoralised, then beginning mixing in the mediocrity.”

    I second that emotion.

              I don’t worry about Vorm. He is adequate. The lethargy is in going forward. It would be nice if they started with enthusiasm and lost interest later rather than vice versa.

              • Ronwol1960-61 February 28, 2018 at 1:39 pm

                I’m not suggesting Sissoko but the one thing he has is enthusiasm while Eriksen and Dele are half asleep at times

                  Yes. I agree. Sissy and Sergio both have enthusiasm. Too bad that doesn’t come with skill attached. Does that remind you of a certain young fella you used to favour?
