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.

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

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

Very lucky if we did.

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 .

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.

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?

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.

I don’t believe there is even a ‘title race’ happening. Just a question of who can finish closest to Citeh an it will probably be Liverpool, especially if they get dumped out of the C.L which is looking increasingly likely…

Man U 8th, incroyable.

Nice results for us apart from Lpool.

2nd?

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.

I think we’re trying to be sensible and not over-exert. 8 games in a less than a month is quite a lot.

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.

I’d have had Schurrle over fernando in a heartbeat. I’d have had pretty much any and all of these. Think Arse have the signing/bargain of the season in that titchy Brazillian
