Watch today’s Daily Briefing and consider which players you’d list as either ‘condemned’ or ‘safe for now’
By Harry Hotspur -

I must confess, as per a previous video, I think a well-contemplated solution to the mess we’re in, would stand ENIC some £400million to engineer. Which, for those of you who care to follow the numbers, this is merely a fraction of what ENIC sank into infrastructure.

The squad at Hotspur Way has been consistently devaluing since Mauricio Pochettino was left swinging in the breeze by our revered board. Conte says that he is not a magician. Oh, the irony.

Dembele, Wanyama, Kane, Walker, Rose, Dier, Toby, Son, Eriksen, Dele. The origins of the players that were the bedrock of the Pochettino era at Spurs, really help one to understand where our problems lay.

None of that aforementioned group came to the club with any real cache whatsoever. They were coached into a very well functioning team by the right coach with specific methods. A group of players who where younger players when initially assembled.

So why should it surprise anyone that when you take away these specific methods, that players who only ever reached those levels of performance under them fail to impress under other methods?

Dembele was tremendous under Pochettino until his fitness waned but he came from Fulham where he’d spent several years, doing ok. Dele came from MK Dons, Walker, Rose from the Championship, Kane out of the Academy. Even our best performers were not moving to any other huge club had we not stepped in. Eriksen 15m from Ajax, seen as very promising but not a great deal else. Son, a little more high profile but not on the hit list of the top 4-5 clubs in England.

The point I’m making is that there are serious question marks about the level of actual true quality we have, or have ever had under ENIC. Pochettino have a false impression of that, in my opinion.

Levy thought he knew different, despite so little transfer inactivity. Jose was seen as a more ‘affordable’ means to get the neglected squad competitive again. It failed abs was always doomed to fail unless he bought Jose half a new team, which was never going to be sanctioned by our esteemed chairman.

’Doing it on the cheap’ has been the hallmark of ENIC. Which is why I find Conte’s involvement all the more baffling…

I argued today that the loss for Mura wasn’t embarrassing, but expected. I saw that team and dread flooded my body. Did I expect Doherty, Sanchez, Davies, Skipp and Ndom to deliver positive displays? No, but some fans did!

It didn’t help that Kane decided to get tackled every time he had the ball, but it showed for the umpteenth time we are sadly lacking outside of the First XI (and a fair few of those are bang average).

Matters were not helped when we had a post based on Ndom looking lively in a post game warm up! The man is a charlatan when it comes to football but still fans are wishing for a miracle and believe he will come good. If anyone can tell me one player that has played nearly 2 and a half seasons and been total rubbish and then turned it round I will retract all my past comments about him…….or at least until he can show me for 3 games he can get amongst it, which will never happen.

I have known for years, as have many on this site, and Conte now knows Spurs are facing a massive challenge. Man Utd have a squad a good manager can work with but have an incoming manager who is better off in a team like ours. Rangnick is famed for building with nothing. That is basically what our squad consists of. We have Conte, who I respect massively, but he should be at Utd.

When all the dust has settled in 3 years time I hope we won’t have had 2 of the best managers in 50 years (Jose and Conte) and not won a pot because they were given awful, cheap players. Conte surely deserves better. That is a true crime that has been repeated too many times under Levy.

Skip shoulda stayed on loan at Norwich to get acclimatised to life in the PL.

On the out list….

Dele, Winks, Doherty, Lo Celso, Bergy, Sanchez, N’Dombele, Kane Clark, Sessegnon, should be shipped out ASAP.

Summer outs’ Dier, Davies, Gill, Rodon, Moura. Lloris, Gollini.

Keep, Romero, Son, Emerson, Pierre. Reggie.

We require a massive re-build and investment. We need a player churn policy to keep the squad fresh with new ideas but above all stop player power which seems to be the big problem in the dressing
room. Far too many senior players influencing what goes on.

Levy will be safe from dissenting voices cos they are desperate to lock everybody up again. He will be praying the public keep buying the same horse$@## material…Lord only knows why people believe this bolox still. Omnicron is from a Science fiction flick about aliens draining humans energy or some such. It’s an anagram of ‘Moronic’. They are taking the p$ss so badly now they must be finding hard to keep a straight face.

Either your joking or don’t have a clue, I suspect the latter. The variant is called Omicron and it’s named after the 15th letter of the Greek alphabet. Good god, at least get the basics right🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

The N was a mistake. It’s an anagram of Moronic. Like it or not, wherever it origins you’re being mocked. Enjoy .
You “have a clue” watching the fear porn on MSM. That’s a clue I’d leave alone. Nothing I said is wrong. It’s a science fiction film. A film about “an alien Variant taking over a human body” no less. Hilarious. Look it up.

Also an anagram of oncomir which is a microRNA thats associated with cancer apparently. Sadly you may not have a clue your good self. It’s never too late.

Not one word on topic only a total mug would jump into a thread about players and post this utter crepe.

Need to go are, Sessegnon, Alli, Dier, Davies, Sanchez, Doherty, Rodon, Winks, Gil, Bergwijn, Gollini, LoCelso, Clarke and Ndombele the only ones I’d keep are Kane, Son, Romero, Emerson, Hojbjerg, Skipp, Tanganga, Moura, Sarr, Reguilon and Lloris. We need, Another Keeper, Left Back, at least 2 centre backs, an attacking midfielder, a right winger and another striker

Safe: Lloris (but will have to be replaced), Reguilon, Romero (IF he can be bothered to play for us as a priority), Emerson (not a great player, but miles ahead of Doherty), Tanganga, PEH, Skipp, Bryan (but he’s 13, so there’s a lot of time until he is useful as a first-team player, if he ever makes it), Moura, Son, Kane

Condemned (sell in the summer, but probably keep for now): Davies (uninspiring, spineless, one of the Zagreb boys), Dier (don’t let the new manager bounce fool you), Rodon (no managers want to play him ahead of Sanchez and Dier), Sessegnon (consistently injured and has shown to be stupid when on the pitch), Winks, Sanchez.

Super-duper condemned (get rid ASAP): Gollini, Doherty, Dele, Clarke, Bergwijn, Ndombele, Lo Celso (unless he rapidly starts giving a damn elsewhere than just in the Argentine shirt)

We can’t keep hoping anymore. We’ve seen it all from these jokers, and thinking that Conte will somehow make them much better and less flakey is just wrong. Imagine how long Chelsea would keep hoping for the real Dele to maybe show up again? He would have been kicked out three years ago.

New players please. Give Conte a chance.
