Loss Would Leave Spurs In A Right 2 An’ 8

By The Boy -

Spurs fans thoughts have very much been with Chas Hodges’ family, his musical partner of many decades Dave Peacock, and all their friends after the news that the much loved Chas & Dave star sadly checked out at the age of 74 this week, after an ongoing battle with cancer.

Chas & Dave were Tottenham boys through and through.

Once upon a time, Spurs were closely associated with cups, like cheese still is to pickle.

For better or for worse, the Champions League inarguably changed football’s financial landscape forever – the primary victims were the trophies previously known as the FA and the League cups.

Being a successful domestic cup side in the 21st century is more about a Premier League side placating fan expectations, opposed to matching them.

The commercial revenues to be garnered from even the Europa League eclipse the Carabao or EFL tournaments, yet the perceived prestige to supporters is markedly lower.

Spurs travel to their latest approved home venue, to Stadium MK in Buckinghamshire on Wednesday night in order to face for the second time this month, Javi Gracia’s side.

Watford look extremely comfortable sat third in the league – in part aided by the 3 points they took from Tottenham earlier this month.Mauricio Pochettino’s men have appeared immensely fragile this season.



It took a modest performance against a sub-par Brighton to inject some belief in a Spurs squad, one clearly stinging from both fatigue stemming from international duties and ENIC’s frankly bizarre reticence to reinforce during this summer’s window.

Belief and patience amongst the notoriously cynical Tottenham crowd has taken a battering this term, from Season Ticket holders having bought seats for a different venue to regular fans hoping that the overall financial uptick of the New White Hart Lane might benefit the first team squad, opposed just get diluted into overrunning build costs.

Losing against Watford would be shrugged of by the club, their eyes arena the bigger prizes.

The psychological damage to player morale would be another matter.

Spurs taking an early exit from the Carabao Cup – courtesy of a side that has already beaten them in the league – could leave fans in what Chas & Dave would refer to as a right 2 and 8.
