Best News In Weeks Eriksen Benched Again
By Harry Hotspur -

Our doe eyed Dane has been demoted again. And not before time.

As per recent blogs, when you look at not just the performances, but the stats, Spurs would have been better off playing with 10 men this season.

Our starting XI against Leicester City is as follows: Gazzaniga, Aurier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose, Winks, Sissoko, Ndombele, Lamela, Son, Kane (C).

Were Eriksen playing anywhere near the standard required, he’d be one that I’d build the team around. Regrettably, he’s lost interest and it’s only fair he gets a taste of his own medicine.

In a destructive yet ideal world, I’d like to see his shuffle out of Spurs on a free next year, on an undisclosed salary. That way the 27-year-old leave on a low, and Levy doesn’t manage to trouser more money after making such a dreadful hash of yet another negotiation.

The team for today is good, bar the inclusion on Harry Kane. I’d rather have him pacing like a caged animal on the sidelines, opposed to charging about like a loon for an hour hoping to get a decent ball into him.

Davies, Dier and Wanyama won’t hold many answers if this gets difficult.

  1. We should bring Kane on at HT

  2. paul says:

    As a football team we are a badly busted flush.

  3. James McKevitt says:

    New team.

  4. Is Gascoigne gonna have a crac says:

    New blog

  5. James McKevitt says:

    Spurs top the Premier League, shock horror!!!, in losing games from a winning position, and though I haven’t checked probably are near the top for the most atrocious away form. No leadership on the field or off the field.

  6. James McKevitt says:

    City had a poor result and responded, we had a poor result and felt so sorry for ourselves because a goal was chalked off we gave up. I think it’s up to Harry Kane to let Levy know if you don’t put this team in a position to win trophies, and soon, I’m off mate.

  7. Is Gascoigne gonna have a crac says:

    Is it even possible to score 5 in 18 minutes? Even with no goalie??

  8. Is Gascoigne gonna have a crac says:

    Man City 5 nil up in 18 minutes. What a load of toss. …..but they couldn’t beat Norwich….as the Aussies would say……right ho…

  9. MrChickenHead says:

    Hey! How bout we fight amongst our selves, that might be fun.

  10. African prince says:

    We have peaked boys. It’s so sad but it was a good run. My grandpa said which ever team lost the champions league final will have a very rough season and it was us that lost.
    Liverpool loosing that final would have dented them badly, millions of pounds spent, zero trophies, Klopp wondering if he can win a big final or us (4/5 years rebuilding and progress and finally being able to win the biggest trophy of all to ease all our pain, hurt, Spurs jibes for years and more importantly proving our recruitment and transfer model is worth emulating.
    We lost and it will be almost impossible to raise the standards of players who aren’t accustomed to winning big titles or losing big finals..
    Pochettino has done very well but from here on out as you can see with his body language it is going to be a struggle up until he walks away or sacked( sadly)
    Losing the EFL final (playing son at wingback)
    Losing the Burnley game away (playing an unfit Harry Kane who just returned from injury, all of a sudden the team loses and we are out of the ‘title’ race
    Losing the UCL final ( playing an injured Harry Kane who hasnt scored in months in favour of a Hot and firing Lucas Moura who seemed destined to win us the UCL single handedly and was guided by a ‘higher power’, as that Garrick can only be described as magical.
    It’s too bad, it’s too bad a very solid manager but he always, always gets it wrong in the decisive moments where the world class managers shine.. it’s too bad, it’ll be a long season for us.
    Love you guys.

  11. Eddie says:

    Another game where we had the majority of possession but managed 2 corners and 4 shots on target.It ain’t good enough.

  12. paul says:

    As a football team we are a badly busted flush.

  13. Urbane Sturgeon says:

    We are a mid table side. Not enough bite for the 2nd ball. Soft in possession. The moments of quality are sporadic during matches and inconsistent from game to game. 26 points short of liverpool last season looks likely to be repeated if not worsened. Top 4 looks a distant daydream, as does making the quarter final of any competition whatsoever. Is this the beginning of the end?

    Go on the Stale Lemon Puffs!

  14. Tappaspur says:

    I think a player will come in in January. Has to.

    • Eddie says:

      One isn’t going to be enough.

      • Tappaspur says:

        Its gonna have to be.

        • Eddie says:

          I wonder if any of our new players will be fit to play by then.

          • paul says:

            This season is a write off. So fucking simple to see the damage not sorting out the tin tin/verts/tobes/rose issues would cause but tbh Levy doesn’t give a shit, he’s more concerned about maximising the per square footage retail profits of concourse A sub section D which are .05% down from last home match.

  15. James McKevitt says:

    Last season was saved by the Champion’s League run, unlikely to happen again, I mentally threw in the towel after Christmas last year, this is already shaping up to be a long tedious trip enlivened by the odd thrilling win , big club , afraid not.

  16. Lilywhite without the II says:

    Slowly but surely Poch will stat getting flak….which will make it easier for Levy to change him…watch this space

    • Is Gascoigne gonna have a crac says:

      Yep. Said it all along. Levy will come out of it like Big Urn Mckracken in Kingpin with Poch left in the car park to get his hand mangled.

    • Eddie says:

      It will get very difficult for Mourinho to choose between us and Real Madrid.

  17. Lilywhite without the II says:

    THIS IS ENIC’s plan….they got what they needed from Poch…now they have the debt covered, top 6 or “insert manager” will get sacked, top for is a bonus, winning means nothing…THIS is all it will be until ENIC go….but why would they….

  18. James McKevitt says:

    Can Poch even coach this lot anymore, he said they ignored the game plan against Olympiacos. Are they tuning his voice out?

  19. DannyG says:

    The difference between when we were great and what we are now, is that the players aren’t supporting each other in the same way. Look at the difference in attitude between us and Leicester today. That used to be our forte. We’ve gone back to being flaky. Major changes required.

  20. Eddie says:

    So glad Levy never took a punt on Maddison….NOT.The boy is class but Southgate doesn’t think he is good enogh for England.I didn’t realise we were so blessed with alternatives.
    I don’t understand why this game was billed by the commentators as the battle between Winks and Maddison,to me they are different players in different positions.
    Another lead thrown away and by Monday evening we could be in the botton half.A 670M debt to be furnished over 30 years,god knows what that represents in interest to the club,because that’s who is paying it,not ENIC.The club will become more marginalised as we fail to make top four and NFL becomes more popular.This is the future with ENIC.Enjoy.
    This is a failing project and our future is bleak.

  21. Legoverlassarisen says:

    This team and this coach are a failed project. The players know and Pooch knows that ENIC are simply not going to invest to win anything. Levy said the other day that the objective is to build a brand of Premier League, Champions League, NFL, rugby and concerts / events.He said that ENIC will not change their transfer policy and that this is all about building from the bottom up which takes a long time. !7 plus years of ownership and nothing of any note in terms of football success but lots of shiny property assets. The players don’t care about the club or its owners as they know it is a fake project that pretends it is a top club but has no desire to invest to be one. I actually am beginning to dislike the club as it is a reflection of ENIC.

  22. East Stand says:

    Let me know when Levy and ENIC have fucked off. They had 18 months to get their act together for a rebuild and they turn it into a demolition job.

    Typical of the last 20 years and counting.

    They are con artists and complete cunts…

  23. Tappaspur says:

    Right. Off to the boro game. The gooners there and the rest of em gonna give it to me😂 up the boro.

  24. Is Gascoigne gonna have a crac says:

    Your Poch……’today I’ll drop my goalkeeper and captain’….

    He wouldn’t.

  25. James McKevitt says:

    This team is a soft, soft, soft, all the fight of a soggy meringue. No leadership, no veterans laying down the law, nobody talks, too many nice , quiet players. We need battle hardened Roy Keane, Steve Bruce, Dave Mackay types, this collection of players is getting very hard to like. Six years and same old mistakes, Harry Kane knows it, time to go mate, your on no mission here.

    • Lilywhite without the II says:

      Levy won’t pay old people, he won’t pay “ready” people either….its the never ending cycle of wannabees..it’s embarrassing..

      • Lilywhite without the II says:

        add to that we have the most expensive season tickets in Europe, and made the most profit of any European club last year

  26. Tappaspur says:

    This league boy. No joke.

  27. Limerick AL. says:

    Leicester showing Spurs how to see out the game, Take note Mr Botch.

  28. Lilywhite without the II says:

    Levy has extended the loan for 30years….so basically we don’t need to win or finish top 4 to make payments…..this is the ride we are in….paying off a 1b pound debt for property developers….

  29. Lilywhite without the II says:

    No fight…..haven’t won away for 8months??!!

  30. Lilywhite without the II says:

    just gets boring…thats why half the team want out….

  31. Tappaspur says:

    COYS. Fight

  32. Spurs est1882 says:

    Not won away since Feb! Wow!

  33. Is Gascoigne gonna have a crac says:

    Soon as I saw the team……..

    • Lilywhite without the II says:

      I think the 11 were ok…I don’t think Poch is capable of making “in game” changes, he does like-for-like subs at pradictable times..

  34. Lilywhite without the II says:

    Ars will pip us to 4th ….enjiy the ride..

  35. Limerick AL. says:

    When Son dragged his shot you knew the outcome to be fair.

  36. Tappaspur says:

    Bet gray wishes Davies was playing

  37. Dan says:

    Our dips in results coincides with the loss of our best player ….. dembele

  38. Is Gascoigne gonna have a crac says:


  39. Dan says:

    Wanyama should have cleared the ball, we do it to ourselves every week

  40. Lord Croker says:

    In typical fashion. They score.

  41. Lilywhite without the II says:

    you can always tell when we are going to concede…Poch just stands buy and does nothing..

  42. MrChickenHead says:


  43. Lilywhite without the II says:

    we “aint” that good anymore

  44. Cabspur says:


  45. Lord Croker says:

    Utter bollox.

  46. Lilywhite without the II says:


  47. Tappaspur says:


  48. MrChickenHead says:

    A draw then?

  49. Tappaspur says:

    Cmon wanny son.

  50. Cabspur says:

    var is a unt again… i thought a arm didnt matter?

  51. Cabspur says:

    better from our lot.

  52. Eddie says:

    Harry’s goal was superb.I would like to see Winks move the ball forward more with Sissoko and N’Dombele alongside him.

  53. Eddie says:

    Wasn’t able to watch the last two matches,but are we as good today as against Palace or were Palace just poor?
    I think this is a very even game with both sides wanting to play football and more goals to come I believe.I think the ref has been good allowing the game to continue after some tasty challenges.

  54. Tappaspur says:

    COYS were better than these fools. See em off.

  55. Cabspur says:

    Dont think this will end 0-1 ,good watch but a bit sweaty betty.

  56. MrChickenHead says:

    So we are 1 up and everyone is complaining, go figure.

    • Lilywhite without the II says:

      not really complaining, we are playing the ball round well, Winks and Lala playing good, I think we need to attack with more intent as I think we only had 2-3 shots….worried about City’s fast break as well..

    • Limerick AL. says:

      Its only HT . Spurs are Spurs , Hope that we keep a clean sheet , but cannot see it .

  57. MrChickenHead says:

    Casper was having a go after the whistle

  58. East Stand says:

    Let’s drop Kane, he’s shite…

  59. MrChickenHead says:

    Gee that Lamala guy isn’t too bad.

  60. Is Gascoigne gonna have a crac says:

    Is that VAR again for ENIC? Kane and VAR are quite the attacking combination.

  61. Lord Croker says:

    The predictable unpredictability of it all.

  62. Cabspur says:

    what a goal ,,from the floor!!

  63. Cabspur says:

    even after the push!!!!

  64. Lilywhite without the II says:

    The BOY!!

  65. Lilywhite without the II says:

    City look to score, we look to pass the ball 56 times..

  66. This is giving me kittens 🤣

  67. Cabspur says:

    great tackle sissy,,fucking modern game.

  68. Tappaspur says:

    U18s doing the saints 0-2

  69. Cabspur says:

    loving var again

  70. Cabspur says:

    gazza fcuked that right up

  71. Tappaspur says:

    If my SPURINGEY give me six points that with the good news I’ve just had I’ll take myself off to crouch end and spend a £50 on a good bottle of Argentinian red😊. Great to be alive😁😊

  72. Cabspur says:

    fast paced match so far.

  73. Is Gascoigne gonna have a crac says:

    Bench get more and more horrible each week. How has Poch kept this squad up there?

    Miracles and a bit of assurance for being a good little corporate entity.

  74. Lilywhite without the II says:

    bench isn’t great but Moura can help in the 2nd half..if we go out and play we can win this, they will press us like crazy men so we need to be sharp from the off…Eriksen will end up at a team no better than Spurs but on a big salary, ohh well…

  75. David Dillenberg says:

    IMO our Lyon signing needs to step up quickly plus Winksy contributing greater expansive passing!

  76. Cabspur says:

    Glad he is benched till he sorts his shit out if he ever does,,a real pisser that le celso got that injury as he would be getting fit and finding his feet. Best line up with Kane although i get people who would rather start with 3 pacey strikers/wingers and interchanging ,i think our team works well without Kane and teams cant handle it .

  77. ronan1882 says:

    No Hugo, CE, Dele .. ?? Looks like Rose and Aurier will have to be the creative force, while at the other end Leicester will have to be kept to zero shots on target. Expecting another very long 90 ..

    • David Dillenberg says:

      I am happy with both Gazzy in goal and anonymous comfort zone Alli’s omission! who needs to get his act together fast or sell him. Happy Days!

  78. David Dillenberg says:

    Admittedly he has not been at his best but by benching our solitary creative midfielder “conduit” spells trouble!!

    • David Dillenberg says:

      …consequently depending on the scoreline I expect Eriksen to make an appearance at some stage!
