    I refreshed my stream and we seem to have been deducted two goals….bloody ref!

  2. Sid Trotter says:

    With all the guano that’s been going on, 3rd would be an achievement this season – long way to go

  3. Harry Hotspur says:

    Saints score 4 and we’re bang in trouble

    thanks for the links…its not just the links that are a bit slow and bla….so was that half from what I could see?

    Check that some beloved friend/relative isn’t sat there with 27 tabs open and watching YouTube!

  10. Aussie in Switzerland says:

    Burnley!!!!!!! 1-0

    Yeah it’s nice to be above the arse, finish above them and all that jazz but tbh i’m more concerned with what seems like the backward progress of our wares on the pitch. Same players, same manager, one with a project apparently; yet we’re playing significantly worse footie than last season, when we also had deep patches of gash, particularly towards the end. ‘Lillywhite without the’ summed it up perfectly tonight with the following; “.. 2nd half ManU. 1st Half Milan and Chelsea. Thats it so far this season without wanting to rip my eyes out..” So following on from the end of the last season into this and the new norm appears to be that we’re now fairly gash as standard, with only occasional flashes of ooooh! And i can’t see any progression on the pitch whatsoever, not on any front. Quite the reverse. And i’m not just talking about who we didn’t buy that we should have, i’m talking about same players, same manager, same stadium etc. Which begs some obvious and deeply uncomfortable questions about where we are heading from a footballing perspective and if anyone at the club has any sort of footballing vision and/or connection to the style of football that many of the supporters not only would like to see but for many, for me, was the very reason we became Spurs supporters in the first place .

    I bumped into my pal Ralph, the retired bookmaker this week and he nailed it. There are not even half a dozen top flight sides in the Premier League anymore. The quality has nosedived and to such an extent that promoted side used to usually go down, at least two of them. Now we see the slow churning out of sides like Villa, West Brom and soon Fulham.

    Spurs have delivered some pretty rubbish football this season and they are not alone by a long chalk. City have won the league and everyone else will be queuing up to see how much cash their placing has earned them.

    • Paddio says:

      Just watched motd (have to fast forward the pudits). It is city’s to loose as the rest all looked poor, standard of football isn’t great. The league is in 4 bands lucky we are in the 2-5th group.

  12. East Stand says:

    NLD was a blip.

  13. Harry Hotspur says:

    Feel a teensy bit sorry for Saints. They look very much like they are going down. At least they are trying to play football…

  14. Aussie in Switzerland says:

    5 yellow cards at Old Trafford so far.

  15. Cabspur says:

    liverpool winning

  16. Lilywhite without the II says:

    good goal…

  17. Accy says:

    Someone’s injured that scamp Torreira in the other game.

    Your all rather positive tonight. To be the negative one, ( I’m sorry) our first big win was manu which turns out to be kinda shit. Our second big win chealea loses to the wolves (not a totally bad side) beat arse took us too the end but also loses to reg teams. Then the shit team that we handly beat gets a draw again arse after they kicked it to us. Meeting the right teams at the right time? Or did we just fluff the nld?

    We’re so thin on the ground with fatigue it’s like watching a very ill patient have good days and bad.

    • Only Me. says:

      You could also argue this supports the Poch narrative that we are a big scalp now and teams try more against us?

      • Harry Hotspur says:

        Big scalps normally get big by winning trophies. Sorry to be boring, but beating us 10-nil isn’t much if we aren’t ‘reigning champions’ or whatever.

        Which s why our win against Man Utd was weird!

  19. East Stand says:

    The table looks a lot nicer tonight.

  20. Elevenstonedidiots says:

    The Saints can take pride in the way we celebrated our win.

  21. JimNewrySpur. says:

    Man U 8th, incroyable.

    • spurs108 says:

      For anyone to take you seriously you should talk about our lack of transfers for many years now. We are regressing relative to the rest of EPL teams.

  23. East Stand says:

    I knew Woolwich wouldn’t win tonight despite Utd being utter toilet right now. We won well there and all they can manage is a poorly played out draw.

    Table doesn’t lie…

  24. spurs108 says:

    Very interesting match where we were lucky to win 3-0

  25. Cabspur says:

    Harry Kane despite being shattered from the start and rarely rested 2nd in the e.p.l top scorers ,mucho respect.

  26. SpursGoliath says:

    Chelsea’s next two league fixtures should give us an idea of just what sort of a rival for top four qualification Chelsea are – Man City (h), Brighton (a).

    Really, they need 6 points from those – can’t see that happening unless Sarri has a few surprises up his sleeves.

  27. Harry Hotspur says:

    Happy with the score.

    Trippier appears to have well and truly run out of ideas?

  28. JimNewrySpur. says:

    Nice results for us apart from Lpool.

  30. Billy the yid says:

    Anyone heard anything about the new ground? Heard a rumour underground staff being told to get ready for Jan, which I’ve seen hints in the press as well. I would go and ask our esteemed leader but there’s more chance of me bursting into I’m forever blowing bubbles than there is of that twit giving us an accurate and honest answer

    • Harry Hotspur says:

      The club said that there would be an update the first week in December (I think) and given this week runs out tomorrow I’d be astounded if the news is amazing.

      It was suggested that the high end boxes/facilities that were still unfinished, which might be supported by the areas that will be open for the test event.

      I still can’t believe they are charging fans £6,000 to come in and buy food and drink.

  31. Accy says:

    Arsenal playing for extra extra time.

    Anyone see Lacazeeet trying to score by headbutting a dead ball out of de gea’s hands?

    Cheating twit

  32. Mad Carew says:

    You gotta feel for Mythacarryon, thought he’d got one over on his old club

  33. Harry Hotspur says:

    City have won the league – I’m just enjoying the ride while we compete

  34. SpursGoliath says:

    We don’t do clean sheets anymore do we…

  35. Lilywhite without the II says:

    deserved…

  36. Lilywhite without the II says:

    2nd half ManU
    1st Half Milan
    Chelsea

    Thats it so far this season without wanting to rip my eyes out..

  37. Lilywhite without the II says:

    One of the great wonders of the world…..”Fellaini being a pro football player”…

  38. paul says:

    Players that there is absolutely zero reason under the sun we could (should) have had. They were available, and they were available for reasonable money or loan. All would have either significantly increased the quality in our first eleven or done a decent job from the bench:

    Gomes/Kovacic/Barkley/Madison/Torreira/Yarmolenko/Ramirez/Schurle.

    To name a few.

    It’s maddening.

  39. Andrew says:

    Why not try and improve our goal difference??? The reason saints had most possession in the last twenty give minutes is cause our players were happy with just the points. That’s the difference between us and citeh,pool etc.

  40. Aussie in Switzerland says:

    Back to third…. Somehow….

  41. Lilywhite without the II says:

    skip skippety skip…

  42. Mad Carew says:

    Skip Hire rating this time !

  43. Is Gascoigne gonna have a crac says:

    How longs it take for Mourinho the fraud to get canned

  44. Lilywhite without the II says:

    thanks for the links…its not just the links that are a bit slow and bla….so was that half from what I could see?

  45. paul says:

    Just got online, 1-0 up lots of empty seats and trips back is what i see immediately, what else has been going on, how have we been?

  46. Mad Carew says:

    Eriksen the danger

  47. Aussie in Switzerland says:

    Just swap Dier for someone in January please.

  48. Is Gascoigne gonna have a crac says:

    Moura will tear Southport apart

  49. Cabspur says:

    1-1 mancs
