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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?
