Beyond the Hanna-Barbera officiating there was a game of football last night and this may be a pertinent moment to mention another fundamental that was also got wrong. Where was the ‘orange ball’?

I found the game itself pretty insane viewing. Anyone seeking to make grand pronouncements about any of the players make need to cool their jets. For the bulk of the second half I was fending off the part of my brain that was finding the lines in the snow to have a hallucinogenic effect, transporting me into a swirling Opta map of passes.

The only certain conclusion that I’ve come to is that Harry Winks + Mauricio Pochettino = less than the sum of their respective/collective parts.

The ‘Ray Wilkins Junior’ jibe has surely runs its course and we are now looking at a player that has stalled.

Winks needs to leave Spurs if only for him to see if he has a genuine future anywhere.

He won’t find out (and nor will Spurs) by Poch running him out for the odd 45minutes then hooking him. Midfield players in particular need a definite identity. Right now, Winks is the ‘Grey Man’ and I’m struggling to see how he will get himself out that particular funk if he stays at Hotspur Way.

Winks could be a great player. ‘For who?’ is the question…

    Accy got a bonus point for his 5th win of the week in the 10th game. You already had the bonus point as the 10th game was your sixth win.
    Problem solved.

  • mattspurs March 2, 2018 at 10:50 am

    All a bit premature – Winks still a bit injured and not fully match fit. it’s a bit of a worry just how long it seems to take our players to get up to speed after injury. Rose and Wanyama also way off previous form. Lamela going good after almost 2 months of playing.

    • Rimsky Korsucoff March 2, 2018 at 10:55 am

      Yep, looks like Lamela is finding form at just the right time, hope Poch rotates him though, don’t want another injury to finish his season, Dembele has been a revolution but needs saved for the big games but as late sub on Weds i expect him to play on Sat.

      • Geoff Evans March 2, 2018 at 12:26 pm

        Lamela finding form? His first assist for 3 years and against the team at the bottom of L 1.
        The rest of the time running round like a headless chicken,mistiming tackles,as he always does.
        If that’s form then Aurier is the best right back in the world.

    • Harry Hotspur March 2, 2018 at 11:07 am

      Lamela look brand new from the off. Primarily because he didn’t have anything physically wrong with him in the first place.

      Winks is wasting his time at Spurs. Injuries are too frequent and he’s not responding to coaching either.

      Loan him and let’s see what we’ve got. Right now, we don’t know.

  • Gus March 2, 2018 at 10:46 am

    I’d like to see Arsenal just miss out on the top 4, and lose in the semis of the Ropey in a close match. That should be enough to keep Arsene in the hot seat for another year!!

    • Superspoz 🏆 March 2, 2018 at 10:50 am

      Need them out of the ropey asap

    • SpurAndy 🍒π March 2, 2018 at 10:51 am

      I like them to lose in the Ropey this season but do enough to have to qualify in the early rounds next year in July. I’d like Wenger to be sacked and Henry installed who gets them relegated next season. I’d like them to then financially collapse and end up like Portsmouth.

      • Freund or Foe March 2, 2018 at 10:53 am

        Agree, a move back to south of the river works for me, especially that far south.

      Don’t worry about Arsenal,they’re in the wilderness for years,not because of Wenger but because of the owners. They buy badly and don’t groom their own,a recipe for oblivion.

  • Rimsky Korsucoff March 2, 2018 at 10:44 am

    When Saturday Comes

    Lloris
    Aurier
    Sanchez
    Davies
    Wanyama
    Dembele
    Eriksen
    Alli
    Son
    Kane

    Moura & Lamela will play some part but expect Sonny to start, sadly no room for Sissoko or Winks against Huddersfield, Kane will have a field day !

    • mattspurs March 2, 2018 at 10:46 am

      pretty sure he’ll start with 11

      • Rimsky Korsucoff March 2, 2018 at 10:48 am

        Dier as left CB, just thought it would make it more competitive, Doh !

      • Superspoz 🏆 March 2, 2018 at 10:48 am

        That’s what everyone will be expecting. We need to think outside the box. 10 players will give us more space to run. Good move I think.

        • mattspurs March 2, 2018 at 10:51 am

          we’ve played with 10 loads of times this season with Sissoko

    • Geoff Evans March 2, 2018 at 12:33 pm

      Jesus mate,you picked Aurier who Alan Shearer picked to pieces on match of the day,he can’t cross and can’t tackle,always hits the ball against the front defender,
      And by the way there’s 11 players in a football team ,maybe they do things differently in Siberia?

  • Freund or Foe March 2, 2018 at 10:21 am

    We’ve already earned 55mil from this years CL participation, in prize money and TV share, let alone gate receipts. Just shows how important that top 4 place is, and how much Arse will suffer from at least a few years out of the competition.

  • Rimsky Korsucoff March 2, 2018 at 9:47 am

    Rimsky Korsucoff March 1, 2018 at 7:13 pm

    Wm Hill will let you bet up to a tenner on Man City to win by 3 or more at 6/1 and if you do risk a tenner you will get a free £5 bet (win or lose) to be used within the next 4 days, what could be more rewarding than another Arsenal Drubbing ?

    Wm Hill did the biz last night, don’t touch the Boro v Leeds offer but Monaco to win both halves v Bordeaux @ 3/1 enhanced to 3.23/1 is well worth a shout.

  • gloster1861 March 2, 2018 at 9:04 am

    After the Palace struggle we need to score early instead of huffing and puffing for 89 minutes.

  • Harry Hotspur March 2, 2018 at 8:51 am

    The Hare and the Tortoise.

    So they’re on the start line ready for the race and the Hare looks round at the Tortoise “Hey! You’ve got no eyebrows!”

    The Tortoise replies “Tortoises don’t have eyebrows, can we get on with it?”
    The Hare says “OK, but I’ve just noticed you don’t have eyelashes either”
    Somewhat testily the Tortoise replies “I know, we don’t have them either, can we get going?”

    “Fucking hell” says the Hare “You don’t have any ears!” then gets up from the start line and starts walking off.
    “Where are you going? Lets get the race started” says the tortoise angrily.

    “I’m not racing you” comes the reply “You’re a ringer, you’re really Nikki Lauda aren’t you?”

    • OrganicPaper March 2, 2018 at 9:08 am

        He he he

  • Legoverlass March 2, 2018 at 8:34 am

    Winks had flashes of ability when he first started for us but Pooch has turned him into a monotone system player who is brainwashed about possession being the only important function. Receive the ballpass it straight back receive it again pass it sideways receive it again pass it backwards. He seems to have lost the ability or confidence to hold the ball and take it forward and then pass forward. I agree a loan spell would be best for him at present.

    • Geoff Evans March 2, 2018 at 12:39 pm

      Tippy tappy,it’s the Only way Poch knows,that’s why we won’t win anything with a one dimensional manager like him,better managers will get their players to put the ball down the channels and fast forwards will get behind our C B S. Yes ,the squad is so good we can be top 4 but is it because Poch is great or because the players are?

  • WhlSpursNhl March 2, 2018 at 8:21 am

    Should we start up a collection?

    It’s been building for years, but many thousands were in denial.
    Hope they fill that stadium up soon or wenger will be gone in months.

    No chance of it happening, but I’m half hoping they beat in Europa final & he signs a shiny new 2 yr contract.
    Rewarding Regression.
    I’m sure the Arse board love money more than our Levy.

    They’ll be out to AC in next round & it’ll be back to the good old days when their season was over in Feb/March time.

    • gloster1861 March 2, 2018 at 9:00 am

      The problem is they might replace Wenger with a good manager. We really need him to cling on for next season so we can settle in at the new place without any revival from the Woolwich Wanderers down the road.

    • Lilywhite without the ll March 2, 2018 at 9:02 am

      So getting into the CL and winning a European cup is regression…what fucking hope do we have!!

      • gloster1861 March 2, 2018 at 9:05 am

        Yep, better for them to get knocked out by AC Milan.

    • Erik March 2, 2018 at 9:45 am

      They could end up taking our CL place if we were to finish fourth, or they could boast about having a better season…
      Sooner they get kicked out of the Europa the better.

      • Erik March 2, 2018 at 9:47 am

        Correction: they couldn’t take our CL place… Lol

    I think Winks definitely needs another opportunity somewhere else and perhaps half a season loan will give us a better idea. KWP I have seen probably as much as others on here and has not blown me away so the jury still out on that one.

  • melcyid March 2, 2018 at 2:13 am

    just watched a post match interview with KWP ,His off pitch persona doesnt seem to match up with his prescence on the pitch. He seems a bit of a wally a nerd infact he reminds me of Ty on aresfan tv,It was weired he seems like a twelve yr old.thing is on the pitch he is a handful,bet Levy only pays him thruppence

    Ill check it out
    Look allnyou have to do is gobtjroigh every week and count your score and then count allnthe others scores every week. Thennlet me know if its difgetent to the final figure that their multimillion quid computer calculated out

    There’s no need to do it manually, if you click on ‘performance’ tab at the bottom and then highlight the ‘Ronglish league’ you will find at the top, headers including ‘leaderboard’ to check your overall position and ‘matches’ which if you select will bring up a bar graph showing the top 10 players of the week. After 9 games as Arse still had to play City, the only points to add were today’s game. Anyways if your not familiar with this, don’t worry because it will be time consuming.

      Wotcha Ron, a bit baffled with the scoring system in the Ronglish. Before today’s game I was top with 10.5 points and Nuts in 2nd with 9.75. Accy was a point or 2 behind .After today’s game Accy finished above Nuts and joint with me on 11.75 points. We all chose the same 3-1 scoreline to City earning 1.25 points each and bonus points already were awarded yet Accy has seemed to gain additional points. How is this possible ?

        So they gloated over us for years and now it’s in some kind of bad taste for us to do it?

        You’re the one that needs to change their tune…

    • SeattleSpursGuy March 1, 2018 at 11:05 pm

      Yup. Bags of it.

      And with 45 points they are as close to Burnley in 7th as they are to Chelsea in 5th.
      Time to start lumping them in with the bottom 15

        It must feel like 96 years, they made it feel like 96 years. They can fuck off!

  • East Stand March 1, 2018 at 10:51 pm

    I know we aren’t used to much snow and that in the UK but the media overreaction is almost unsettling in its hysterical nature.

    10 people have died during the freeze which is 10 too many but in a country of over 75m people it isn’t that surprising.

    It’s a bit of snow and ice, why is a tiny bit of collective strife with the weather a reason for such hysteria?

    I reckon people are just so bored that they suck it up with a massive dose of help from the wanky media…

    • David Dillenberg March 1, 2018 at 10:59 pm

      Oh come on Easty nothing hysterical whatsoever as no exaggeration it’s the coldest snap during my lifetime to date.

      • Caspurs♿️ March 1, 2018 at 11:10 pm

        You haven’t lived long then DD. It reached -17 in Lancashire and -28 in Aberdeen in 2010.

        • David Dillenberg March 1, 2018 at 11:15 pm

          Noted but these artic freezing biting winds have affected the whole country causing disruption to transport, sad loss of life and serious enough for the Met Office to issue Red Amber Warnings which is a new to me.

          • MysteriousStranger March 1, 2018 at 11:21 pm

            Rain causes deaths on the roads, yet the media doesn’t go into meltdown talking about it incessantly. I understand there have been advances in weather predictions since when I was a kid but we used to have a lot more regular snow in the 80s, roads were gritted adequately and we just went down the local park to sledge or whatever. How the hell this has been headline news is mind boggling. It’s just some snow FFS. There’s a segment at the end of the news for weather. We don’t need to be told “it’s snowing” twice and shit ourselves because of it.

          • ronwol196061🇨🇦 March 2, 2018 at 12:01 am

        It’s for bedwetters and those that can’t function without being given the go ahead by somebody else they don’t even know.

        It’s a bit of snow and ice, it’s cold. So fucking what…

        • David Dillenberg March 1, 2018 at 11:43 pm

          Surprisingly the QT panel acknowledge media weather hysteria.

          • East Stand March 2, 2018 at 6:27 am

            So does that mean that you can now also acknowledge it too? Do you have a mind of you’re own?

    • AntSpurs March 1, 2018 at 11:01 pm

      ‘ Authorities are warning other rival fans to steer clear of Arsenal games for the near future, at least until Arsene Wenger leaves the club as the levels of schaudenfreude that fans are exposed to could be toxic to their nervous system’.

      Hehe. Well medical science has stepped it up a few notches.

  • East Stand March 1, 2018 at 10:14 pm

    There are certain players that evolve into long term squad players. You see it much more in Spain and across Europe.

    Guti for example was never a great but was part of a great Real Madrid squad. Somebody like Leon Osman at Everton is another example.

    They help keep continuity and a sense of identity and set an example of loyal service in a revolving door transfer market.

    I’d like to see Winks improve more but I’d also be more than happy if he remained as part of a rotation system. We need one or two more with a story similar to Kane.

    Winks is another one of our own and I hope he can do what Carroll didn’t manage and become an important squad player.

    Carragher hasn’t a clue, he thinks they should announce Wenger is leaving in the Summer, he thinks the players would improve, given that Scenario the players would Coast even more if that’s possible. Pundit, feckin Clampet !

  • Sexy Beast March 1, 2018 at 10:02 pm

    Would be very interesting to find out the actual attendence.

  • Mad Carew March 1, 2018 at 9:53 pm

    Stupendous Sane, what a player.

  • Countryspur March 1, 2018 at 9:45 pm

    With chavs manure and bindippers fixtures we have to max the next 6 points.
    As for the woolwich, 30 points off the leaders but only 25 more than rock bottom, they looked closer to the baggies tbh

    • East Stand March 1, 2018 at 10:31 pm

      Wenger has been very average once that original team evaporated. That was originaly Graham’s back five and some very good French players when France were the best at footy they’ve ever been, or possibly ever will be.

      The top four thing was at a time when only they and three other teams were anywhere near having their act together.

      Now we and Citeh have gatecrashed the cosy little citadel to create a competitive ‘top six’ Wenger has been exposed to reality. The reality that he’s been treading water for almost 20 years and essentially dining out on his first few years in charge ever since.

      He’s a nice mild mannered Frenchman on the face of it but his cosy relationship with the owners mean he’s had a job for life for delivering top 4.

      That’s over so his time has time as boss has to be over. Should have left years ago… he didn’t which is good.

      • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? March 1, 2018 at 11:57 pm

        Yep. Wasn’t his defense, Henry was a bolt from the blue. Complete fluke. Overrated.

        • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? March 2, 2018 at 12:06 am

          Plus all the help from on high. You don’t get 15 straight champions league place finishes without help. Watching some old highlights and even in Grahams years they were getting a silly amount of penalty’s. Soft ones.

  • Mad Carew March 1, 2018 at 9:35 pm

    Great Result City

  • gloster1861 March 1, 2018 at 9:31 pm

    Training game for Citeh second half.

    Arsene looks unhappy. City ain’t bothered to even try against this lot.

    • Sniper March 1, 2018 at 9:34 pm

      90: Some part of the ground is singing “One Arsene Wenger”, a bit of dark humour from the away end at the Emirates. “We want you to stay” follows shortly after.

      • gloster1861 March 1, 2018 at 9:37 pm

        You can hear that sung in N17.

        • gloster1861 March 1, 2018 at 9:37 pm

          And Gloucestershire.

          • gloster1861 March 1, 2018 at 9:38 pm

            And Kent and Tyneside.

  • Sniper March 1, 2018 at 9:29 pm

    GOAL! ENGLAND 1-0 FRANCE (Duggan 7)

    England take an early lead here and it’s Barcelona’s Toni Duggan who curls first-time into the corner after Kirby laid into her path. Really well-worked move that came from a throw-in on the right-hand side, that.

    Phil Neville opened up about his managerial aspirations ahead of this one and revealed the man whose style he’d love to emulate is Tottenham’s Mauricio Pochettino.

    For the record the attendance is 58,420 – which is total nonsense of course but it is the official amount of tickets sold. Can’t wait to hear the supporters’ reaction to it being announced inside the stadium later on if the scoreline stays like this.
