However, a spokesman for the Bush Administration poured scorn on the authenticity of the message which may prove the al-queda leader is still alive, saying 'it could have been released at any time over the last five years.'

Three old football fans are in a church, praying for their teams. The first one asks, "Oh Lord, when will England next win the World Cup?". God Replies, "In the next five years"
"But I'll be dead by then", says the man.
The second one asks, "Oh Lord, when will Man Utd next win the European Cup?".
The Good Lord answers, "In the next ten years".
"But I'll be dead by then", says the man.
The third one asks, "Oh Lord, when will Tottenham win a Premier League game?".

Don't know but he can't afford many more lost points. I personally have my doubts about him, I mean there's no excuse for Saturday, and I was really disappointed losing to the Goons last year in the Carling Cup after going two up early in the first leg and remember a handsome lead was thrown away against Chelsea in the FA Cup as well, and the biggest dispoointment of all was conceding two silly goals early on in the second leg of the UEFA Cup tie with Seville. I can understand Levy's concerns. After the money spent this summer defeats to Sunderland and Everton and squandering what should have been an unassailable lead against Fulham, is simply not acceptable.

Talking about recent Firsts, without having to resort to the mists of old Mathuselah's time  :D


The Arsenal 1993, First League Cup - FA Cup Double

The Arsenal 2003-04, First Premier League Unbeaten Winning Season with 90 points and an 11-point gap over mega-spending runners-up Chelsea

The Arsenal 1971, 1998, 2002, First & only club to have won the Double in more than one decade,  spanning 3 decades in all


And talking about Firsts for a Manager;

May 1998 Arsene Wenger becomes the first overseas manager to win the League Premiership Trophy

May 1998 Arsene Wenger becomes the first overseas manager to win the League Premiership and F.A. Cup "Double"


And when you've clinched the League in grounds such as Anfield 1989, Old Trafford 2002 & White Hart Lane 2004 ... well ... what can one say except that The Arsenal is a club of Real Class, innit :)

I might point out that you also won the league (and with it, the double) at the 'Lane in 1971 also. The 'class' issue is questionable.


Cheers OWS.

For all the other gossoons like meself, here's an account of the '71 title winning game at The Lane;


1971 THE DOUBLE

1970-71 brought Arsenal their 8th Football League Championship and their 4th F.A. Cup in what was recognized as the most successful season in their history.

In true Arsenal fashion, the League season came down to the final game of the season after Leeds United had amassed 64 points for the season while Arsenal had only 63. With a wonderful sense of occasion the last fixture was against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane. The game had been originally scheduled for the day of the F.A. Cup Semi-Finals and now was rearranged for the Monday night before the Cup Final. If Leeds had the chance to select the fixture to deprive Arsenal of the title it would surely be this one. Local rivalry alone would be enough to ensure maximum effort from the opposition, but Spurs were also fighting for a high league placing to ensure a European place, and handsome player bonuses.

The mathematical permutations were also remarkable. A win would give the title to Arsenal, a defeat would give it to Leeds, while a scoreless draw would give the title to Arsenal, but a scoring draw would give it to Leeds.....(ahhh, the joys of goal average!).

Alan Mullery (Tottenhams captain) reinforced the belief that it would be a mighty clash: "Arsenal have got as much chance of being handed the title by Spurs as I have of being handed the crown jewels. They are the last people we want winning the Championship!"

The players lunched at their own homes before reconvening at the South Herts Golf Club, the regular pre-match meeting place at 4:30pm. Already the football fans of North London were on the march towards White Hart Lane. The gates were locked more than an hour before kick off with 51,192 lucky spectators inside. Twice that number were left on the outside. The volume of traffic even surprised the police. Berty Mee recalled: "We gave ourselves an hour for a drive which normally takes 20 minutes. But even then it was a very difficult journey. I have never seen scenes like it. Seeing those crowds increased the sense of occasion for us. There was no way we were going to be beaten." The referee, Kevin Howley, had to abandon his car a mile away to fight his way on foot through the crowds.

The crowd pulsated as the game began. McLintock had his hands full coping with Martin Chivers, while at the other end Charlie George, George Graham and John Radford all came close. For all the energy imparted into the match by both teams, a goalless draw beckoned. But three minutes from time, Kinnear tried to dribble clear of trouble inside his own penalty area. George recaptured the ball from the Spurs right back, and twisted instantly to conjure a cross from an angle which would have defeated most players. Even then it seemed as though Arsenal had been denied. Jennings made the save of the night as Radford met the ball provided to cleverly by George. Tottenham stopped to a man, perhaps in admiration of their goalkeeper, but also because they expected the ball to run behind for a corner. Armstrong had barely stood still all season, and was not going to break the habit now. Rescuing it from near the goalline his chip back across the goal was met by Kennedy's soaring header. The ball sped high to Jennings' left, above the leap of Cyril Knowles behind him. It clipped the underside of the bar and was over the line.

The goal was greeted by an explosion of sound and instant exhilaration from every Arsenal player. When Kevin Howley blew the whistle three minutes later bedlam reigned on the pitch as thousands of fans raced to congratulate their heroes. Players had their shirts ripped off, Bob Wilson actually ended up hugging the referee and the other players were marooned in a sea of spectators. Arsenal had won a record (at the time) 8th League Championship title, and Leeds United had finished second with 64 points, the highest points total achieved by a team NOT to win a championship (at the time). The first part of Arsenal's historic Double had been secured, the second part was to provide just as much excitement.....

Wish I'd been alive when this happened; even better than lasagna-gate

When the league was restarted in 1919, the decision was taken to expand the 1st division from 20 to 22 teams. The promotion of Derby and Preston, who'd finished 1st and 2nd in the second division in 1915 went through on the nod. Norris managed to get the question of whether Chelsea and Spurs (who'd finished 19th and 20th respectively in the 1st division) should stay up discussed seperately. Chelsea also went through on the nod, and a vote was taken to decide on the final place. The choice was between Tottenham, Arsenal, Barnsley (3rd in the 2nd division), Wolves (4th), Forest (19th), Birmingham and Hull. Norris' influence and close relationship with the league chairman, also chairman of Liverpool, won the day and Arsenal were elected to the 1st division with 18 votes to Tottenham's 8. Arsenal managed to blag their way back into the first division despite protests from their North London neighbours, who were relegated at our expense

So Arsenal didn't get into the top flight on merit then. Good to know that.

Also, the '71 title would have been Leeds' but for a West Brom 'goal' at Elland Road, which denied them the necessary point.

Bad as things may be at the Lane at present, and that can be turned around, at least they aren't in the position Leeds find themselves now. ;D

Martin Jol sings to the tune of the Gloria Gaynor  ' classic '  ....



"At first I was afraid, I was petrified
Kept thinking I could never turn Spurs into a top four side
But I spent oh so many nights thinking how Stalteri did me wrong
Perhaps I'm wrong, but I'll just have to carry on

And we'll be back, into fifth place
Wait till the transfer window, sign another waste of space
I should have sold Paul Robinson, I should have dropped him from the team
If I had known for just one second he'd concede more than Derby

Go on now go - Bent, there's the door
Just turn around now 'cause you don't score goals anymore
Weren't youthe one who cost more than Thierry Henry?
I knew you'd crumble, I'd rather have Emile Hes-key.

But I, I will survive
Oh, if we just win the next six games I know I'll stay alive
I've got Tainio who is crap and Huddlestone who's just fat
But I'll survive, I will survive

It took all the strength I had not to fall apart
Kept trying hard to mend Defoe's relationship with his little tart
And I spent oh so many nights trying on John Barnes's tights
And oh I've cried, I want the Spurs job till I die!

And you see Keane, he hates me too
I subbed him off when we were winning then we went and effing drew!

Sqaure Ball, the situation cannot be tolerated any longer. At the weekend Klinsmann said he wanted to work in London, that's a "come and get me now" invitation to the Spurs Board. I think they should end Jol's reign now, pay him the £4m (which is what he is angling for) and bring in Klinsmann, a proven winner and top class coach who will attract top class players to the club (as opposed to the likes of Steed Malbranque ffs). What a massive lift for everyone at the club this would be

Exactly. The season can still be salvaged but Jol is not the man to do it.

It is obvious now that the players have lost confidence
Title: Re: Let's all laugh at Totteringham
Post by: Square Ball on October 23, 2007, 12:56:39 PM
Tony

its not only that the players have lost confidence, they also seem to have lost confidence in the manager. Berbatov seems to be a prime example of this, one of the best strikers in the premiership last season to someone who doesn't seem to want to be on the field, has he lost his balls? or has the manager lost the dressing room and his reign is virtually over?
Title: Re: Let's all laugh at Totteringham
Post by: T Fearon on October 23, 2007, 01:05:24 PM
The latter obviously. Apparently Berbatov had to be persuaded three times last night to come on.

The Manager has lost the dressing room and we have now reached the point of no return. I am surprised there hasn't been an announcement already to-day
Title: Re: Let's all laugh at Totteringham
Post by: Square Ball on October 23, 2007, 01:09:32 PM
From The BBC

I can salvage Spurs' season - Jol 
 
Tottenham have won only one of their 10 league games this season
Under-fire Tottenham boss Martin Jol says he can revive his side's fortunes, despite their dire start to the season.
Poor defending cost Spurs dear in a 3-1 loss at Newcastle on Monday to leave Jol's side in the bottom three but he said: "Yes we lack a bit of leadership.

"But if everybody is fit we have got a very good team and very good defence."

However, former Spurs midfielder Tim Sherwood told BBC Radio 5 Live: "Martin has not fixed the defensive frailties and, ultimately, may pay the price."


Interview: Spurs boss Martin Jol

Tottenham have won only one of their first 10 Premier League games and there has been speculation over Jol's future for most of the season.

Jol's position has not been helped by renewed speculation about his relationship with star striker Dimitar Berbatov.

 606: DEBATE
The genuine hope for great things at the beginning of the season and now total despair

indoznids

It was reported that the Bulgarian was so unhappy at starting from the bench at St James' Park that he initially refused to warm up before appearing as a second-half substitute.

That allegation was firmly denied by Jol, who said he was resting Berbatov ahead of Thursday's Uefa Cup tie, but the Bulgarian made a lacklustre cameo appearance, underlined by his score of 5.01 on BBC Sport's Player Rater.

And Sherwood said: "Berbatov is not happy if you ask me. He did take some persuading to warm up against Newcastle.

"He could play in any side in the world when on form but I wouldn't want him round me in Spurs' position.

"Tottenham need people willing to fight for the cause and, on the evidence of the Newcastle game, he's not one of them."

However, it is in defence where Jol may have the biggest problems.

 
Tottenham, need people willing to fight for the cause and on the evidence of the Newcastle game, he's not one of them

Sherwood on Berbatov

Influential club captain Ledley King has missed the whole season so far because of injury, while the latest worry for Spurs is Welsh defender Gareth Bale, who suffered a foot problem against the Magpies.

"Hopefully, it is not too bad but it doesn't look good," added Jol. "His foot was swelling up after the game, so it could be a pretty tough injury."

However, Sherwood believes Jol has few excuses for his side's defensive concerns, saying: "There are problems at Tottenham and they can't go on this way.

"I'm all for giving managers time - but only if they are making progress and at the moment there are no leaders on the pitch and, more worryingly, no leaders off the pitch.

"Martin needs to show improvement. It looks like they are doing nothing on the training ground to address their problems at the back.

"The only problem the board have is who they could bring in to replace him. Sevilla coach Juande Ramos has obviously been highlighted as the man they want but he won't be available until next summer and Spurs don't have an obvious choice as a caretaker manager."

 Every match we make mistakes, and we have to cut out that rubbish

Martin Jol

Jol, on the other hand, believes he is doing all he can to get the best out of his players and blames "individual errors" for Tottenham's poor form.

"You can go into any match with all the best intentions and gameplans but if you concede goals like we do you make almost impossible for yourself," he said.

"Seventy per cent of the goals we have let in this season have been avoidable. We talk about set-pieces and everything like that but we need mental strength out on the pitch.

"I believe in the players but they are young and we need someone to stand up and pull the strings. Every match we make mistakes and we have to cut out that rubbish."

Tottenham soon to become homeless bums

By Mihir Bose
BBC sports editor

Tottenham have turned to a man who played a major role in the development of Arsenal's Emirates Stadium to help them build a venue of similar quality.

Tony Winterbottom, formerly of the London Development Authority, is now masterminding plans to expand Spurs' White Hart Lane ground to about 52,000.

The project would cost in the region of £300m of which £150m would be borrowed.

But it would mean Spurs having to vacate White Hart Lane for two seasons, and may have to share with West Ham.

A couple of years ago Tottenham were very keen to become permanent tenants at Wembley but the Football Association did not want that.

Now Tottenham have again approached Wembley to inquire about playing some of their matches there while they rebuild White Hart Lane.

But Wembley want a lot of money to hire the stadium and Tottenham may only consider it worthwhile that top matches, such as the derby with north London rivals Arsenal, are played there.

So they have also spoken to West Ham, with a view to playing the less high-profile matches at Upton Park.

The problem with West Ham is that the Hammers are themselves thinking about building a new stadium, so that might complicate things too.

Another solution might be to share the Emirates Stadium with Arsenal but that seems fraught with difficulty, particularly with the present rivalry between the fans.

Consequently, there is also talk of Tottenham playing some matches at a ground outside London.

But while rebuilding White Hart Lane is the preferred option for Spurs, there are two other alternatives that are being considered.

One is to develop some land just north of White Hart Lane.

This would mean Tottenham would continue to play at White Hart Lane while the new stadium was built.

Or they could develop one of a couple of possible sites in Enfield, but that would mean a new stadium quite some distance from their current ground. Redeveloping White Hart Lane is definitely the number one choice and Paul Phillips, a project manager at Emirates, is also helping Tottenham.

Spurs have also got high-powered architect Ken Shuttleworth, who is the right-hand man of Norman Foster, whose company designed the new Wembley, on board.

David Pleat:   Robbie Keane does not miss!
David Pleat:   Robbie Keane does not miss penalties!

Berbatov stayed 6 years at Leverkusen - hardly the biggest club in Germany - where he was generally rated the best foreign striker in the country. The Leverkusen fans adored him, chanting his name when he came back with Spurs.

As for his apparent disenchantment with Spurs, he was persuaded to join them by Martin Jol, when Spurs had just finished 5th in the Premiership and they maintained that position in Berbatov's first season. Since then he has seen close-up the shambles that is White Hart Lane, where Daniel Levy is clearly not interested in building a successful team, but is solely concerned with building up the Balance Sheet so that he can sell out for a huge profit to the first foreign Billionaire that comes along.

Berbatov is far too good for that shower, imo.

Great result from Villa point of view last night as we owed Spurs from the earlier game at WHL when we were 4-1 up and gave them a lifeline.
As soon as I seen the teamsheet I knew we would win, the Spurs back 4 were awful and could not cope with pace/trickery of Young and Gabby. 
Paul Robinson persists with his punch policy, he cannot take any crosses at all and clearly lacks confidence, yet he was their skipper last night.
Anyway we were fully deserving of the three points and go into Sat evening's cup game with great confidence after a great Festive period.

Hutton turns down £8m Spurs switch

Rangers defender Alan Hutton has rejected the chance to join Tottenham following a reported £8million bid from the Premier League side.

The 23-year-old had looked to be on his way to White Hart Lane when Spurs made their move earlier in the day.

However Hutton is understood to have turned down the chance of a move to White Hart Lane.

The Scotland right-back had looked to be nearing the end of his Ibrox career following reports of an £8million bid from the north London side.

There was contact between the two clubs and Hutton was informed of the potential opportunity to move south of the border.

However Hutton decided the move did not suit him, and the deal appears to have broken down irretrievably.

Tottenham representatives are known to have watched Hutton in action, and his outstanding performance over the past year has attracted plenty of attention from England.

The 23-year-old has made the number two shirt his own for club and country, starring for Rangers in the Champions League and for Scotland during their Euro 2008 qualifying matches.

Hutton was lauded by Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson as a player who "looks as though he will become a superstar" in the future following his display against Italy at Hampden in November.

He was also outstanding in Scotland's 1-0 victory over France in Paris, and Rangers have been understandably keen to keep him in Glasgow.

The bid from Tottenham was sufficiently high for Rangers to leave a decision on the move up to Hutton, who signed a new five-year contract last July.

His loyalty to Rangers will delight the club's supporters, who see Hutton as a key player in the club's future.

Rather than move to Tottenham, who have ambitions of a top-four finish in England, he could compete for silverware in the SPL with Rangers, and have a greater chance of playing in the Champions League.

Last month assistant manager Ally McCoist expressed his hope that the defender would stay in Glasgow.

McCoist said: "We don't want to lose players of his quality."

Spurs are infinitely superior alright.  Infinitely superior at missing sitters and conceding soft goals, even without England's No 1!!

The away goal is only crucial if you don't get bate.  Even then you will have to hang on until the end of extra time.

For those of you who don't know, St. Totteringham's Day marks the day of the year where it is mathematically impossible for Bottomham Dropspur to finish ahead of Arsenal in the league.

While the holiday has been delayed in recent years, it looks like it might come as early as March 1st this season. That's less than a month away!

Portsmouth 2-0 Tottenham
By Mandeep Sanghera

Tottenham were left rooted to the bottom of the Premier League after a tame display in a loss at Portsmouth.

Former Spurs striker Jermain Defoe put Pompey ahead when he drove in a penalty after Jermaine Jenas needlessly handled a Glen Little free-kick.

Spurs lacked a goal threat but were denied a penalty after an Aaron Lennon cross struck Lassana Diarra's arm.

Peter Crouch nodded in Pompey's second before Diarra was sent-off late on for two bookable offences.

Spurs now have just two points from six top-flight games and, while it is early in the season, the panic button might be getting nearer to being pushed.

Poyet vented his frustration after the game

The White Hart Lane side, who have made their worst start to a season for 53 years, looked short on confidence and belief, while they also seemed like a set of strangers playing together.

Defoe's opener will only have added to their misery and any regret they may harbour from selling him to Pompey in January.

The England striker made his exit with Robbie Keane and Dimitar Berbatov ahead of him in the Spurs pecking order but his rivals have also since left the club.

Keane and Berbatov departed during the summer and Spurs have struggled to adapt and move on, while Defoe has prospered at Pompey.


He thought he had put his side ahead as early as the third minute when he slotted in after a Crouch flick-on only to be ruled offside in a marginal decision.

Spurs saw plenty of the ball early on but it was the home side who were posing the problems in front of goal.

Pompey midfielder Richard Hughes pounced on a loose ball and unleashed a left-foot shot on the stretch which was fended away by keeper Heurelho Gomes.

Gomes again denied Hughes when he saved his far post volley from a corner before Pompey took the lead after 34 minutes.

Jenas was the culprit and his error allowed Defoe to confidently score from the spot for his sixth goal from his last five outings.

Spurs fans could only crave the sort of inspiration Defoe and Pompey possessed and, even when they did go close, they were missing a cutting edge.

Redknapp was pleased with the result

Striker Roman Pavlyuchenko headed wide of the Pompey goal and also steered a David Bentley free-kick high.

Spurs were not helped when their appeals for a penalty after Lennon's cross struck Diarra's arm were turned away and Pompey took advantage by extending their lead.

Armand Traore's powerful shot was only parried by Gomes and ex-Tottenham trainee Crouch was on hand to head in from close range.

Diarra was dismissed after 88 minutes for Pompey but they will welcome the win after conceding 10 goals in their last two games.



Sam you should just get that as a sticky at the top of the board ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D  Two ex-Spurs men scoring today.  It was fantastic business to sell 3 proven strikers for a Ruskie who has had a decent Euro chmapionship.  Rebrov anyone?

Post by: ExiledGael on September 28, 2008, 09:04:15 PM
He'll make Rebrov look good. Absloute waste of money. They could have picked someone up on a free that would provide as much as Pavlyuchenko. He has almost no attributes for football whatsoever. Slow as myself, weak as water, awful technique. Maybe a good man to have on the end of moves in a free-flowing team (Arsenal) to tap them in, but he contributes nothing to general play. Never ever an outlet for a low or a high ball and can't retain possession under any pressure.
Maybe he'll prove me wrong, but I honestly think he's the biggest load of shit ever to grace the premier league.

Desperate and unbelievble situation. I was at the Spurs AGM last December, a few weeks after Jol's sacking, and our estemmed Chairman said it was a decision they had to take otherwise, and I quote "relegation would have been a real possibility". The manager cannot be changed again (the enormous payoff precludes this) but surely Commolli must go now and possibly Levy as well. >:(

PS Martin Jol's Hamburg sit proudly on top of the Bundelsegia this morning >:(

A little boy gets £10 for his birthday and rushes down to the Sport Shop to buy the new football he has been desperate for.

He gets a ball down from the rack and gives the shop-keeper his £10. "Sorry son !!" explains the shopkeeper. "This ball costs £20, but you've only got £10".

Thinking quickly, the boy looks up at the different club footballs on the rack and says: "Ok. If you blindfold me and I guess which club's crest is on the ball, will you let me have the ball for £10?" The shopkeeper decides to humour the boy. He agrees to the lad's proposal, and so he blindfolds the boy.

First up he gives the boy an Arsenal ball. "OK," says the boy, placing his ear to the ball, "I can hear the blasting sound of 2 canons. This must be an Arsenal ball!" "That was a lucky guess," exclaimed the shopkeeper, "Let's try another one!"... and he hands him a Millwall ball. "OK," says the boy, placing his ear to the ball again, "I can hear a pack of rampant Lions. It must be a Millwall ball!"

"Bejaysus!" says the shopkeeper. "If you get the next one right I'll let you have the ball for nothing..." and with that he passes him another ball. Again the boy puts the ball to his ear and after a few moments he exclaims "That's a Tottenham ball!" "Holy Mary Mother Of God!" shouts the shopkeeper. "How on earth did you get that one? I suppose you heard a cockerel crowing!!"

"No..." said the boy. "It's going down!"

Quote
A seven-year-old boy was at the centre of a London courtroom drama today when he challenged a court ruling over who should have custody of him.

The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with child custody law and regulations requiring that family unity be maintained to the degree possible.

The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. When the judge then suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy cried out that they also beat him.

After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning that domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who should have custody of him. After two recesses to check legal references and confer with child welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, whom the boy firmly believes are incapable of beating anyone.

Bentley: Spurs are a joke
Eurosport - Thu, 09 Oct 12:54:00 2008

Tottenham midfielder David Bentley admits the Premier League's bottom club have become a laughing stock.

Manager Juande Ramos, having been in the job for just under a year, is under increasing pressure while questions are being asked of sporting director Damien Comolli's activity in the transfer market, allowing experienced strikers Dimitar Berbatov, Robbie Keane and Jermain Defoe to leave without finding suitable replacements.

"I know people are having a laugh at the fact we are bottom of the league at the moment but it's up to everyone at the club to stop the jokes," said Bentley.

"We're not happy with what has been happening. You cannot hide from the situation but what we need are a team of leaders who take responsibility. We have to grow as people.

"We have more than enough good players at Tottenham to get us out of this situation and I give my word that we will."

Bentley, who moved to White Hart Lane from Blackburn in the summer for £15million, does not regret the switch to north London and is backing Ramos to turn things around.

"I'm fully behind him, 100 per cent," the 24-year-old told The Sun.

"I still love being at Spurs and I don't regret joining the club for one second.

"I know I haven't been at my best but I haven't become a bad player in a fortnight. The manager believes in me. But I have to admit, we really are shit."

Ramos has to go now. Team of decent players playing shite and with no discipline (2 penos and 2 red cards).

They're toothless up front as well, paying the price for being greedy bastards holding out for as much as they could get for Berbatov, only for this to backfire on them because it left them no time to buy a decent replacement. Pavlychenko was a panic buy based on a couple of decent performances in the Euro championships, a competition of arguably lower standard than the Premier League.

Agree with some running through that. Deserve what they get for allowing themselves to be bullied by both Berba and United, and then to have the audacity to not pursue any charge aganist United. Funnilly enough Chelsea did not get that option in Colegate. However Chelsea are now enquiring to the FA regarding this ruling I believe.
Title: Re: Let's all laugh at Totteringham
Post by: AFS on October 19, 2008, 06:37:18 PM
There's no way to definitively say but I reckon Chelsea and United anyway are better than any European country. Liverpool and Arsenal would be better than all bar maybe the top 2 or 3 (Spain, Germany, maybe England at the minute). Then you have about half a dozen other Premier League clubs (Villa, Everton, Portsmouth, Man City, etc.) that would be better than at least half the countries at the Euros.

Whatever about at the major championships I think its fairly safe to say that international football in general is of a poorer standard than the Premier League, how else do you explain David Healy?

They have absolutely no steel in that midfield at all. Who's gonna dig them out when they go a goal down - Modric, Lennon, Jenas, Zokora??

You can blame the players to a point, but Spurs have bought in the wrong positions over the past number of seasons and now their frailties are finally being exposed.

Hard to know what to say, it's all one great mess at the moment. and you're right Will - Jenas should naver have been let near the captain's armband. Though King is the nominal captain, but he's only playing now and again. And short on strikers too, should have shifted Berbatov off quickly and done something useful with the fee rather than panic buys. hatever about Ramos, Comolli has to be got rid of without doubt.

A tourist is in North London one Saturday and he decides he would very much like to go to a football match, so he asks a man in the street if there are any local matches being played that afternoon.

"Well," replies the man, "the Arsenal ground is very close but they're playing away today. If you feel you really must see a match, the Tottenham ground is not that far away. You go straight down this road and you'll see two queues, a big queue and a small queue.

You should go to the small queue because the big one is for the fish and chip shop.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



A man is sitting in a pub with his Jack Russell dog one Saturday afternoon. The football results are coming up on the television in the corner, "Liverpool 2, Tottenham Hotspur 1," reads the announcer in his normal, rather sedate, voice.

Suddenly the Jack Russell dog jumps up and shouts out, "Oh, no, not again."

The shocked landlord says, "That's amazing. Why did he say that when the result was announced that Tottenham lost?"

"Because he's a Spurs supporter," the dog's owner replies.

The landlord then asked what the dog says when Tottenham win a match, to which the man replied, "I don't know. I don't know I only have him 3 years."

Premier League - Spurs sack Ramos

Eurosport - Sat, 25 Oct 23:17:00 2008

Tottenham Hotspur have sacked manager Juande Ramos and sporting director Damien Comolli.

First team coaches Gus Poyet and Marcos Alvarez are also believed to have left the club with immediate effect.

Spurs have also announced on their official website that they have requested permission to hold talks with Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp and the club have "reluctantly agreed".

Spurs, who made the announcement on their official website, are bottom of the Premier League with just two points from eight matches.

The team has made their worst ever start to a league season under Spaniard Ramos, who took over from Martin Jol one year ago.

Clive Allen, the Development Squad Coach, and Alex Inglethorpe, the Youth Team manager, will take charge for the visit of Bolton on Sunday

Gomes just looks like someone whose confidence is shattered. He's nervous all the time because of past mistakes and he is just waiting to make another. He was an excellent keeper with PSV, but if he hasn't worked his way through this slump by January, I'd say Redknapp will be replacing him. I feel sorry for him and hope he pulls it together.

I'm not an arsenal supporter and was merely pointing out the strange midfield selection...

You would have to admit having Zokora, King and O'Hara (the england u21 left back) in a 4 man midfield is a strange quartet.

To me Modoric, while a quality player, needs a certain system played for him to fit in. That kind of team selection would suggest he is trying, and struggling, to get him to fit in.

I'd be shocked if spurs went down. I'd say Bentley and Bent won't last long under Redknapp. Aaron Lennon probably isn't too happy either. They need a striker who can hold the ball up - and badly.

Deflect all you want Tony but Spurs are in a relegation dog fight only a fool would deny that and wasting money on Jermaine Defoe ain't going to help. Spurs need defenders. Spurs have only won 4 league games since Redknapp took over and have shown no decent league forn, their exceptional cup form is masking their deficiencies and the players need to realise they are in a relegation battle. Spurs at the moment remind me of Leeds.

Typical Tony to deflect it all on to Arsenal!
Why did Wenger sell Bentley? Because he wasnt up to it - what did Tottenham do - buy him for £17million of which £7m went straight back to the Emirates, they then buy back Defoe for double what they sold him and pay off a 700k loyalty bonus to him as part of the deal!
Pompey got 5m for redknapp to leave,Ramos and staff all got big pay offs, jol got in the region of 5m as well to go - all in all it doesnt look good for the spurs.

The 1st when the saviour Peter Reid saved them for relegation, Leeds had wasted so much money by then that the fire sale and relegation the following season was a mere formality.

This was ain intersting article on the Defoe transfer in the Tribune yesterday...

Paper trail leads back to the Lane
Ciaran Cronin
Jermain Defoe's return to Tottenham Hotspur, where just £3m switched hands, highlights the increasing complexity of modern-day transfers
Willing Defoe: the striker is back with Spurs after a one-year sojourn with Portsmouth

When Jermaine Defoe walked out on the White Hart Lane pitch on Tuesday night and gave a little wave before Tottenham's Carling Cup semi-final against Burnley, the striker not only proved in wearing a Dickensian winter outfit that money cannot buy taste, the story behind his return to north London also established that modern football's transfer market is an increasingly complicated place. An oversimplified picture – put in a bid, get the selling club to accept, agree terms with the player and then get him to pass a routine medical – is often painted as the normal sequence of events in the transfer of a player from one club to another but the details of Defoe's move back to Tottenham reveals a market where motives are less straightforward.

When Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy sat down with Portsmouth chief executive Peter Storrie to work out a deal, the pair had a number of issues to consider on account of the widespread practice of clubs paying for players in instalments. Portsmouth agreed a fee of £9m with Tottenham for Defoe last January, with half the amount being paid up front and half due this month. Therefore, Levy was straight away able to knock £4.5m off his cash outlay and then the pair would have spoken about the money due to Tottenham in the next 12 months from Portsmouth in the form of instalment payments for Younes Kaboul and Pedro Mendes.

That, along with the Defoe money, meant Tottenham were due about £9m from Portsmouth but there was one further complication before a deal could be struck. Tottenham had inserted a sell-on clause in the sale of Defoe's contract which entitled them to a reported 20 per cent of his sell-on value, also deducted from Tottenham's final bill. A fee of around £15m was agreed upon which meant, all told, Levy only paid about £3m for Defoe.

"Instalments are the only way in which most clubs can buy a player over the price of £5m," says one football agent, "and Portsmouth have done this for most of the guys they've got in over the past few years. In this case, I would suggest that the transfer would not have gone ahead had Portsmouth not been due to pay Tottenham so much money in the next few months. If you think about the situation rationally, with Portsmouth short on cash and them owing Tottenham so much, Harry Redknapp really had the pick of Portsmouth's players in this transfer window."

One trend to look out for, then, is that if you sell a player to another club and accept payment in instalments, the chances of you buying one of their players before the second instalment is due are quite high. "The sales of Robbie Keane and Dimitar Berbatov this summer will mean that it is highly likely that Spurs will get who they want, within reason, from Liverpool or United over the next one or two years," says the agent. "The finance men at clubs love writing off money that might be due in the future and in most cases, the buying club are willing to write off more than a player might be worth in order to ensure the deal goes through."

Another point to consider is that by buying players in instalments rather than buying them outright, clubs are really participating in a kind of calculated gambling. Think about it. When Portsmouth bought Defoe, they only handed over £4.5m to Tottenham. By having the player on their books, they gambled that they would earn enough success to pay the other half of the deal the following year. In this case their gamble pays off, Portsmouth enjoyed a degree of success while the player's value increased. However, if Portsmouth had flopped last season and Defoe played poorly, they would have been stuck with a £4.5m bill to Tottenham for a player who might be worth just half that. It's exactly what happened to Leeds.

There are other factors to consider, too, in the world of footballing hire-purchase. Tottenham, who are the best example of a lot of what is going on because of their recent frenetic transfer activity, are believed to have struck deals for Luka Modric and Roman Pavlyuchenko this summer in Euro and agreed to pay in instalments.

Now, with the British pound having fallen in value against the Euro, the club find that the second instalments they pay for the players will be significantly higher than what they would have expected. So where the fees for the Croatian and Russian were agreed at £15.8m and £14m respectively in the summer, the pair will end up costing a couple of million pounds more by the final instalment. Manchester City, on the other hand, won't be caught in such a pickle by the signing of Robinho as the club's Arab owners paid the entire £32.5m up front to Real Madrid.

Sometimes, in this complex world, paying more can actually work out as less.

No score in extra time. Second half of which has just started. Burnley doing as much attacking as Spurs. Just have a worrying feeling someone like Pavluchenko could come up with a moment of magic . .

He is an annoying whinger who has had ample time now to turn spurs around and they are still bottom 3/4 in the league, loves blaming everyone else for his troubles, if I were a Spurs fan (thank fcuk) I would be disgusted at his constant sniping at the players.  BTW how shit was Bentley last night again, the Burnley fans gave him great stick all night due to his Blackburn connections.

To be honest AZ, that's some myopic nonsense. You could replace 8 of Liverpool's players with cardboard cut-outs and it wouldn't amtter, because Gerrard, Torres and Reina carry them everywhere they go.



Corluka and Hutton would both be better than all Liverpool's full-backs put together. Woodgate is better than any of Carragher/Agger/Skrtel/Hyppia. Not King though, he's done. In the form Dawson is in, he would be knocking on the door.

Lennon would be a shoo-in, and Bentley in any sort of form would be an improvement on whoever is marooned on Liverpool's right.

The jury is out on Modric and Bale, but either would comfortably get 25 games a year at Liverpool.

They burst their ass for Harry for a few weeks cause he put the arm round them and told them how great they were.

It's not even over the top, let alone ridiculous. Liverpool's centre-halves enjoy the bonus of sitting behind a five-man midfield in a defensive shape, with two dedicated defensive midfielders and non-attacking full-backs. They've the easiest job in football.

Woodgate is a simple, effective defender, and more than proficient at every aspect of the game; one who almost never makes a mistake. He is probably the only defender in England who complete nullifies Didier Drogba.

where did i say that?  i am simply saying that tottenham have a team that should be competing with the like of aston villa in an attempt to break into the top 4.  I am saying that spurs have a number of players that could/should play at a higher level and they are underachieving, possibly due to attitude or mismanagement.  it is testament to the management skills of rafa that liverpool have done so well this season.  we have terrific players like carragher, reina, alonso, gerrard, torres but whenever these core players are injured/unavailable the back up simply isnt there, anyone who argues against this needs to take a reality check.  i no i would rather have bentley/lennon coming off the bench than benny, lucas and this season to an extent babel.  whenever utd are missing rooney/ronaldo/ferdinand you still expect them to get 3 points.  when liverpools core players are missing you wouldnt be as confident.

Spot on, Rossie. For when King is out injured, there's no-one else to provide a bit of leadership on the pitch (made worse by the frequent absence of Woodgate, and the sale of Keane)

In fact, I feel kinda sorry* for Modric and Pavylucenko (sp?), Gomes even, since I think they have genuine class, but mustn't know what hit them to be dropped into a club where a hundred people are pulling in two hundred different ways. Even at a stable club, they'd have difficulty enough coping with the language, style of play, "foreignness" of everything etc, as shown by the fact it took e.g. Henry and Pires time to settle in at the Arse, or Vidic and Evra at ManUre.

Liverpool's inability to break down teams that "park the bus" is due to their midfielders sitting further back because they're scared of the full-backs being exposed.  That means that the space between attackers and midfielders is greater than it needs to be to effect enough meaningful attacks - this is hidden (somewhat) by Gerrard's propensity to score more goals than he should by arriving 'late' in (or near) the box.

Sorry Wobbler, I'll have to disagree. I'd take Corluka alright, maybe, as I said. Woodgate or Dawson, well I wouldn't swap Agger or Skrtel or Carragher for them. Lennon would not be a shoo-in on this form, same for Bentley.

Where would Modric get games for Liverpool? In what position?

And Bale, yes, I would take him for LB.

There's loads of lads around the premiership I would take, so I'm not myopic when it comes to Liverpools strengths and weaknesses, but I just wouldn't be harvesting too many of the Spurs lads.

1434: GOAL Blackburn 2-1 Tottenham
About as bad a goal as you could want to concede and Harry Redknapp will be absolutely fuming. A corner is swung over from the Blackburn left and Heurelho Gomes and his defenders don't bother going for it - the ball bounces up for a disbelieving Andre Ooijer two yards out to tap home.

Have to say the Stoke goal was a fantastic goal, great build-up and a fantastic finish, if Arsenal or Man U scored that goal the superlatives would be flying, Stoke are definitely evolving postively as a team..

I suppose the same carry on goes on in China and Japan. Supporters of epl brand x winding up supporters of epl brand y.
Is the rivalry a part of the acquired support package? Or is there some magical intuitive grasp of the established local rivalries between club supporters that is handed down through the generations.
I love watching a few games, sometimes a team over a season or even over a few seasons, just wondering how do you absorb the rivalry bit.

Its really not that hard to grasp..I follow one team my mates follow another some of my mates happen to follow another..If my team beats my mates i will wind him up for a while or maybe he will wind me up if my team gets beaten.

Not a laughing matter :


Keeper badly hurt in bike smash 
 
Cudicini signed to Spurs from Chelsea in January
Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini has suffered "potentially life-changing injuries" in a motorbike accident in east London, police said.

He was taken to hospital after his BMW bike was involved in a collision with a car in Walthamstow at about 1030 GMT.

He has fractured his wrists and injured his pelvis but a spokesman for the north London club spokesman said they still waiting for test results.

The Italian, 36, signed from London rivals Chelsea in January this year.

'Under supervision'

The female driver and a child passenger walked away from the Ford Fiesta Cudicini was in collision with and did not need hospital treatment.

The accident happened on Forest Road.

A Metropolitan Police spokesperson said: "A 36-year-old male suffered injuries described by the London Ambulance Service as possibly life-changing and was taken to an east London hospital for further assessment and treatment.

"No arrests have been made."

A statement on Tottenham's website said: "Carlo Cudicini has fractured his wrists and injured his pelvis after being involved in a road accident this morning.

"The 36-year-old Italian goalkeeper has been admitted to hospital and undergone scans under the supervision of club medical staff.

"The club will update supporters on Carlo as soon as there is any further information."

Have they really improved from when they nearly got fourth one other year?

Seem to be going sideways. Only looking at challenging for fourth as liverpool are having a shocker.

The FA Cup final will be a mess - portsmouth will be unable to play a lot of the big guns due to bonus clauses in their contract (if reports are anything to go by) and will get hammered.

Double for chelsea now very much on...

Can't argue that that wasn't disappointing to-day. I fear that like Celtic yesterday, a lot of Spurs  players thought they only had to turn up, a fatal attitude.

Still its between us and City for 4th place, Liverpool and Villa are out of it. Everything to play for.

Harry Redknapp: William Gallas is no Yorkshire Ripper, he can win us title

Harry Redknapp has told Tottenham Hotspur fans to get behind his decision to sign William Gallas on a free transfer, insisting he has not "signed the Yorkshire Ripper" and that the former Arsenal captain could make the vital difference to winning the Premier League.

Redknapp has previously stated that he wanted two or three more players who could add the edge required to challenge seriously for the title. Asked if Gallas, who will sign a one-year deal subject to a medical, could be one of these, he said: "I think for a defender he could be, yeah. He'll come in and give us a bit of knowhow, a bit of presence. The other players will look at him, know he's a good player, those who played against him will know he's a good player. He'll bring experience. He's top class – whenever we've played against him he's looked world class."

Redknapp was bullish regarding any animosity the 33-year-old might encounter due to his links with Arsenal. He said: "It's all cobblers really, isn't it? What's he done? It's not the Yorkshire Ripper I'm signing, he's a footballer, he plays football. When he plays here he might go and play for West Ham – what's he supposed to do? I'm sure the fans will give him a good reception."

He added: "He's done nothing wrong. What's he done wrong? He's not the first player to go from Arsenal to Tottenham or Tottenham to Arsenal. It happens all the time.

"He won championships and all sorts at Chelsea. He's a great lad as well, smashing fellow. I've been really impressed with him. He'll improve Tottenham and that's all I'm concerned about. He wants to come here and play and I think that shows the character.

"He could say: 'I played at Arsenal; I daren't go there.' He's got the bottle to want to come and play here."

The manager is certain Gallas will want to show Arsenal and their fans what they are missing. "Oh yeah, he'll come here with a point to prove," Redknapp said. "If he wanted an easy life he would've gone to Greece or somewhere wouldn't he? For big money and say: 'Oh that's OK I've done it all.' He's put himself under massive pressure to come, you've got to give the man some credit."

Redknapp denied Gallas had made exorbitant wage demands, and stated he will sign a one-year deal with the option of a second depending on how many starts he makes. "He gets another year if he starts over 30 games. He's never asked for big money here. The chairman [Daniel Levy] has agreed a one-year contract with him and the wages are more than reasonable."

Redknapp then claimed Gallas has agreed a salary less than the one he was offered by Arsène Wenger at the close of last season when his contract had expired. "He turned it down. What happened at Arsenal was they offered him a new deal, a two-year deal on maybe slightly less money than he was on the year before and he turned it down.

"I'm not saying it was a clever move on his part at the time – financially it probably wasn't because he hasn't got massive money here. He's signed a good contract but we haven't thrown loads of money at it that's for sure and he never asked for it."

Redknapp is particularly happy to sign Gallas as he will have added a vastly experienced defender to a Spurs squad that is weak in this area, as an injury crisis envelopes the club after only one league game. They travel to Stoke City tomorrow with Ledley King doubtful due to his chronic knee problem and Redknapp claiming that Jonathan Woodgate's career may be over if an imminent operation is not successful.

"You are talking about having an operation for Jon – that's his chance probably, his last resort," Redknapp said of the 30-year-old. "He's been all round the world looking for a cure. He's gone abroad with the physio.

"We need cover. The Champions League is fantastic for us but it becomes a balancing act. We do need bodies now because we are involved in two top competitions. Tomorrow I'm short of having enough substitutes. That is what happens in this game."

Said in summer 2008:

"I have supported Barcelona all my life," Arshavin said. "Barcelona are my dream.

"I never thought I would have a genuine chance to play for the club. Let's see how the situation unfolds. For now I can't say anything for sure.

Again in 2008:

"How could I not want to go to Madrid? The only thing that I have said is that I want to leave Zenit in the new year.

"Of course I like Madrid, they are a great club, one of the best."

And a quote by his agent who I assume spoke to him before saying this:

“Andrei has made it known that he wants to leave Zenit,” Lachter said. “And he has made his decision — he would like to go to Tottenham. He likes the way Tottenham play and he is a big admirer of Ramos."

And just one more:

"I still have a desire to play abroad and I'd like to play in either Spain or England.

"Barcelona are my favourite team and in England there is Manchester United and Chelsea."

There was a stat the other year which was something like (by January) Spurs had never won a game that season where Bale was involved. I can't recall the exact stat but it was something shocking like that.

Harry moving him from left back to left midfield was a master-stroke. The guy was really drifting for a while.

Won't be long until a crazy bid from Man City I suspect...

I think the real test will start now or during the knockout stages of the Champion's League.

No doubting that he has been the player of the tournament, but I agree that he is hit and miss.  He hasn't exactly set the Premier League alight this season or any previous one he has been involved in, and he has only really been outstanding in a handful of games for Spurs.

He has been world class since he moved from wing back to left midfield.  After he beats his man more often than not he puts the ball low across the goal between the keeper and the full back with just a 5 yard tap in needed.  Someone like Man City where money is no object should be looking to snap him up if they want to get close to winning the title.  The only thing missing from him at the minute is a decent hairdresser.

Yes, believe he is being touted due to similarities with Shankley, ie from the same area etc, good solid pro of a player and is very much a hands on coach which would work well with a DOF such as Commolli.  C'mon Bolton!

Post by: Blowitupref on May 07, 2011, 07:16:56 PM
I'm watching this live & BBC sum it up better than i ever could.

Blackpool goal: Mental. Everything that happened in the last two minutes was b***** mental. Firstly, the visitors win a penalty when Michael Dawson handles inside his own area. Charlie Adam hammers the spot-kick goalwards, but Heurelho Gomes makes a stunning save low down to his left. From the corner, Gomes comes out, tries to catch once, can't, twice, can't, than Gary Taylor-Fletcher nicks it off him and Gomes brings the strike down. Unbelievably, we have another penalty. DJ Campbell tries to get the ball off Adam, but the Scot grabs it, puts the ball down, and smashes it with all his might into the other corner. Utterly amazing.

1905: GOAL Tottenham 0-1 Blackpool (Adam)

1905: Penalty to Blackpool (different one, not a re-take)

1904: Penalty saved by Heurelho Gomes

1903: Penalty to Blackpool

Yer man on itv is an awful clown - tottenham would rather have the goal than a penalty and a man advantage... - would they f**k.

Raises the point too, surely if a sending off offence has occurred it should still be a sending off, even if that means bringing the play back?
Title: Re: Let's all laugh at Totteringham

The sending off offence is 'denying a goalscoring opportunity'. If the ref has allowed advantage and Spurs score, it hasn't been denied.
Title: Re: Let's all laugh at Totteringham
Post by: haranguerer on April 15, 2012, 07:23:48 PM
Yes, but thats what I mean about even if the play has to be brought back. Its no advantage for the play to have went on allowing spurs to score, given that the alternative is to have a penalty and a man advantage. So surely in that situation, it should be blown.

Did cech even get a yellow card for the incident? Don't think he did.
I think in instances like this it should be a red and the goal allowed. The fact that Bale
was in the right place was no concern of cech when he took down the striker.
He was stopping a goal scoring opportunity first and foremost. This offence is a straight
red regardless of what happens afterwards.
Chelsea were the better team over the 90 but they were given a huge help by the officials
to make it a handy win.

Thats what the general opinion will be, but we all know how much games can be affected by the smallest variables, and psychological swings. From a logical pov, had the ref dealt with the two talking points differently, then Tottenham would have probably been 1-1 v 10 men. Hard to see them lose it from there.

It was funny though to see Southgate argue that conceding the controverisal goal actually helped tottenham becuase they felt aggrieved and upped it for a bit  ;D

How is that 'logical'? If the Mata goal was disallowed then the rest of the game is completely different. Chelsea remain 1-0 up and the Bale goal never happens. Remember Frank Lampard's 'goal' for England against Germany in the last World Cup? That would have left it at 2-2 yet no-one says England were robbed because they were stuffed on the day as were Spurs today.

It'll be interesting to see what happens to Martin Atkinson. What the hell was he thinking?

Yeah, I don't think it was in but compared to the TV pictures it looked closer.

Cudicini's reaction is telling, he thinks he got the free out and takes moments for him to realise its a goal been given. Actually surprised no has commented on Terrys challenge in the build up, he takes two or three men out of it and not got near the ball or really intended to. Good old fashion forward play.

Gareth Bale would listen to an offer from Real Madrid if they agreed a fee with Tottenham, according to his agent.
Jonathan Barnett told a Spanish television show the Wales winger would be honoured to hear from Madrid president Florentino Perez.
He said: "If somebody like Mr Perez was interested in Gareth Bale it would be a great honour and we would listen."
Bale, 23, is under contract at White Hart Lane until 2016 and the London club want to extend his deal.
Barnett added he is not in talks with any potential suitors for the Tottenham player, who scored 26 goals last season.
If PFA and Football Writers' Player of the Year Bale was to leave Tottenham, Barnett expects the fee to top the price Barcelona are paying for Brazilian star Neymar.
While Barcelona have stayed silent about the amount Santos are receiving for the 21-year-old, Neymar was reportedly valued at £50m.
"Bale is better than Neymar," Barnett added. "He's proved himself in the best league in the world.
"Listen, it's crazy, but whatever Neymar cost, Gareth Bale is worth more.
"I would hope that any club who wants him, wants him not because they lost Neymar. I would think he'd have to be their first choice."

Don't think villas boas is a great managee, 2 jobs now where he has had dissapointing spells. Maybe there was too much read into his succes with Porto. Portuguese league isnt that great.

Remains to be seen will sherwood be there long time given the way levy sacks managers

Triffic appointment by Tottenham. Tim Sherwood is a proper football man and the players will respect him, unlike with Villas Boas.

Who would you respect more? Somebody who never played the game at any level and got their knowledge of football from reading books, Zonal Marking and Jonathan Wilson articles, or a Premier League-winning captain?

Expect Tottenham to abandon the boring, dour, fearful, negative hoofball of the continental man and return to their traditional, exciting, attractive, attacking, technically focussed passing game under the Englishman.

Still a gamble as its his first senior job. He talks a good game though,  done great  work  at spurs at youth level, and gave a debut to one of the youth players against Southampton as a second half sub, made a big difference when he came on. Support utd but like to see spurs do well, as they always played with a great style

Exactly how many great managers were great or even good players?

It's the people who have the aptitude (and passion) for managing that have had success. It has all of nothing to do with them playing at a high level or not. If what you said even contributed in the least to Spurs making him the semi-permanent manager they are a total and utter joke shop.

You flapping yer gums on here and on facebook makes this latest faux pas all the sweeter Antonio, never forget who you are, you are Spurs, born to disappoint!

If the ref had booked players in the first 15 minutes then I doubt it would have escalated like it did. Another poor performance from a ref just like Oliver did the day before.

As for Chelsea if they had put as much effort into their performances all season as they did in the 2nd half they'd be a lot nearer to the top, some of their players have been a disgrace this season and there has hardly been a huge improvement since Mourinho left.

Title: Re: Let's all laugh at Totteringham
Post by: Maroon Manc on May 03, 2016, 10:26:35 AM
Dier was a blatant red and it looked like the linesman was looking right at Dembele when he tried gouging Costa. As for Lamella its a difficult one and I think he'll get away with it.

As for Chelsea Costa could easily have been sent off the way they hounded the ref near the end was a disgrace. John Terry has been at it for years closely followed by Rooney & Kompany, the 3 of them never leave the ref alone.

I very much doubt whether Chelsea would have put that same level of performance in against Leicester last night, its hard to compare the effort Chelsea & West Brom put in compared to the way Swansea played at Leicester. Spurs will look back to January and not buying a striker as a huge mistake, their far to reliant on Kane.

What is everyone giving off about? They were playing Chelsea a team who downed tools on their manager in the mostly revolting way.

A team with Ivanovic, Terry and Costa. A Chelsea team who made it public they wanted to stop Spurs competing for the title.

And people wonder why they young players from spurs felt a bit aggrieved especially with the way the match went last night.

I thoroughly enjoyed watching the match a neutral and seeing the tackles flying in.

I agree, some of those Chelsea players are a joke. Compare last night with earlier on in the season, Chelsea fans can't be happy with that. Hazard has been appalling all season then plays like that when he came on last night. Its a tough job for Conte as they've performed poorly under 2 good managers, results and performances haven't been much better under Hiddink.

Spurs at 8/1 to win the league next season are a good bet, if they can bring in a couple of good players they'll be my tip for the title.

All the action from Liverpool's 2015/2016 league and cup campaigns. After a disappointing start to the season, Brendan Rodgers was sacked and replaced by Jürgen Klopp in October. His arrival led to a change of style and an uptick in fortunes as the club went on to reach the finals of the Capital One Cup and the Europa League before finishing eighth in the Premier League.

Of the top sides in England I respect Spurs most right now. Have assembled the best first 11 in the country as far as I know while making profit from transfer dealings. They play the best football and would probably be favourites for the league if they went spend crazy like their rivals. Plus their manager, despite not having won anything, is top class. In the crazy money league though it could all easily fall apart for them as players heads get turned by middle eastern and Russian money or bank financing.

Walker and Rose really aren’t overrated. They’re by some distance the best 2 full backs in the PL.

Pochettino did wonders to convert them from erratic speed merchants into players who 9 times out of 10 dominate the opposing wingers in both directions. The consistency each showed last season was extraordinary given what went before.

It appears that Poch is doing likewise with Davies and Trippier. But not even Poch can make them boys as quick as those they’ve replaced, which is why they don’t have the same natural peak.

They aren't great defensively.  Both are good attacking,  but they are weak when put under pressure. Walker looks good at city because they have so much of the ball. He lost his place last season at Spurs, and trippier has been solid since.

Trippers crossing is also superior as an attacking full back.

Are Walker and Rose by some distance better full backs than for example Valencia,Azpilicueta? i think not.

Trippier was a good full back at Burnley and he has decent chance to be as good or not better than Walker was with Totteringham.

Youse two are pure mad. You’re equating excellence at going forward as meaning inferiority in defence.

Spurs had the best defensive record in England each of the past two seasons. The only time their defence was torn a new one in that two years was by liverpool, who didn’t even capitalise with goals. Every other game Spurs were comfortable at the back.

You can’t do that in England without quality full backs as there’s still 7-8 teams who play football “done the channels”.

Defensively weak my arse.

whatever you say Wobbler.. Pochettino had no problem bringing in Trippier into the Spurs team last season and keeping him there. He must have been glad with 50m too.

Rose won't be getting back into the team with the way Davies is playing,
Title: Re: Let's all laugh at Totteringham
Post by: thewobbler on November 02, 2017, 09:48:40 PM
Poch doesn’t really handle dissent very well.

Trippier was a solid replacement last year and has been top drawer this. But Poch still went and spent £25m in a problem child right back to ensure he has a pacy option in that position.

Davies’ improvement is perhaps even more marked and he even looks quick these days. But if Rose breaks bread with poch he’ll be no.1 again. He’s the best lb I’ve seen at Spurs, 30 years of watching, and by a distance and a half.

Pochettino says Spurs must invest to compete with the best

Tottenham manager looking forward to semi-final showdown with Chelsea

Mauricio Pochettino says Tottenham must “operate in a different way” if they are to win the game’s biggest prizes, as he reflected on the club’s low net spend on transfers during his tenure and made it plain that he does not expect to make any signings this month.

Pochettino is preparing for Tuesday’s Carabao Cup semi-final, first-leg against Chelsea at Wembley and, unsurprisingly, it led to a discussion about his trophy-winning ambitions. He has yet to claim any silverware during his managerial career.

Pochettino spoke at length about the goals of the project that he signed up for at Tottenham in the summer of 2014, which were to close the gap on the Premier League’s top four and create a team – on a relative shoestring because of the club’s new stadium build – that could compete with them. By any reckoning, he is ahead of schedule.

But as Pochettino has always said, the next step – the one to the biggest trophies – is the most difficult and, according to him, it will require a change of emphasis in terms of spending. Pochettino’s net spend on permanent transfer fees at Spurs is €44.8 million.

“I saw a stat the other day about how teams were spending money in the last 10 years and we were on the bottom in England and Europe,” Pochettino said. “We’re doing a fantastic job but if we want to be real contenders, we need to operate in a different way in the future.

“At the moment, it’s fantastic – so far so good – but we’ll see if it’s enough to challenge and be consistent in the next five years operating in that way; if we’re capable to fight with the big sides in the same way that we’ve fought in the last four or five years.




























































































Pochettino confirmed that the club would listen to offers for Mousa Dembele, who is out of contract at the end of the season and wants a move to China.

“If something arrives, we are going to listen and then it’s what we want to do or the player wants to do – it’s about negotiating, like always in that business,” he said.

Pochettino was not optimistic on the subject of incoming January business. “We know very well the summer is always difficult but winter is worse,” he said. “Sure for us, it’s going to be difficult to add players. I don’t expect to add players but if we have the opportunity to add the right players, we are going to try. We are always open in trying to improve the squad.”

Bit naughty

Pochettino has been involved in a series of classic games with Chelsea during his time at Spurs and, when asked to name his favourite, he chose the notorious ‘Battle of the Bridge’ from May 2016, when a 2-2 draw ended his team’s title challenge. It was a game shaped by nastiness and yellow cards, which Pochettino loved. He feels that his team need to show more of that edge.

“We are a team everyone likes to watch over the last three or four years but we need to be a little bit naughty, smart in how we compete, and we still miss that,” Pochettino said. “Football is about being a little bit smart and naughty. It’s a mix in between the two.

“If you want to win titles and be consistent, you do not only need to play well with quality. Being competitive is about being tough in some games. We have the opportunity now against Chelsea and in the next few months to show we’re capable of being more competitive than we were.”

Meanwhile, Chelsea coach, Maurizio Sarri, has said young prospect Callum Hudson-Odoi is ready for the Premier League and should reject the chance to join Bayern Munich.

Bayern Munich are keen to sign the 18-year-old winger, and have already had two bids rejected in this transfer window.

Hudson-Odoi has found game time at Stamford Bridge limited this season but Sarri has followed his assistant coach, Gianfranco Zola, in insisting that the academy graduate should stay with the club and believes that he is now ready to make his mark on the Chelsea first team.

Hudson-Odoi has not entered contract negotiations at Chelsea despite overtures from the club and his current deal expires in 18 months’ time, in June 2020.

“I don’t think a move to Germany would be good for him,” Sarri said.

“He is an English player, he is very young, and I think he has a very good future here; with the England team and with Chelsea. I think he is a very important player. He is ready for the Premier League, I think.

“Of course we have very important players in the same position and I can play with only two wingers. Three is difficult. But he is ready. Of course some times he will be on the bench but I think I can start to consider him on the same level as Willian and Pedro.”

Big team

In November Sarri was less certain. Speaking after the teenager had scored against PAOK in the Europa League, he said he did not know if Hudson-Odoi was ready to play in league matches “especially for a big team”.

But in advance of the big first-leg derby clash with Tottenham, the Italian coach said Hudson-Odoi has improved significantly in the last month, particularly in his defensive work.

“I know only that, for me, he is a very important player”, Sarri said.

“He’s very young but he’s improving. He’s improving especially in defensive phase. He played very well in the last match [in the FA Cup against Nottingham Forest]. He was in trouble in the match against Watford, but only because of the problem with his hamstring. I am very pleased with him and I think he is an important player.”

Bayern are keen to sign Hudson-Odoi, who won the Under-17 World Cup with England in 2017, with their latest bid worth €34 million plus add-ons.

Tottenham a strange side. A little over a month ago with Alli,Kane in the side beaten 3-1 by Wolves and tonight without those players they beat the best side in Germany 3-0.

Yes three should get through now and could get another all English Champions league final this year.

No real surprise, league results in the last year has been awful for Spurs. Poch had a top 4 squad to work with yet things had gone stale and he was unlikely to turn things around.

I see Mourinho is favourite to now replace Poch and unless Jose has Rui Faria along side him they should have the sense to look elsewhere.

Spurs might not get a better manager than Poch but the bottom line is he lost the dressing room. The CL run masked an abysmal run of league form, which is accurately represented by their current position.

Poch was so, so close to changing Spurs forever. But he wasn’t going to do it from here unless there was a complete clear out, and a year or two of pain. At this juncture I’d rather Spurs throw their weight into giving Harry Kane a chance of winning things quickly.

And were they competitive in that final? Did they ever look like beating Liverpool? The game was effectively over as a contest inside the first minute. Liverpool were able to sit back and soak up what little pressure Spuds were able to offer without ever looking troubled.
As soon as I saw Kane’s name in the starting XI I was relieved, everyone knew he wasn’t fit and you effectively played the game with 10 men. Moura, the hero of the semi final was unbelievably left on the bench.
Totteringham are a selling club and it’s time they cashed in on Kane. You’ll struggle to replace Pochettino.

Harry continues to average a goal a game in a team creating nothing. Moura continues to be unable to put in a performance as a starter.

The champions league final was an atrocious game of football by both sides. The key moment in the game, which ultimately decided it, was a penalty for an accidental action that no longer counts as a foul. That’s the small margins.

I’m really not sure where you’re going with this.

He continues to average a goal a game, and the past 18 months have seen him rise as a playmaker, someone, capable of playing at 10.

He is a top class all round centre forward, and when he has fullbacks and wingers who cross, he’s devastating in front of goals. Same as he has been since he broke through, except his passing is better now.

You must be cherry picking a handful of games from his past to support your argument. I can’t see evidence.

Poch probably had to go but if I were a Spurs fan I'd be fuming with Levy, I don't think this is going to end well for Spurs. In the short term Spurs have a chance of winning the CL but long term they don't have the funds to build a new team unless they sell Kane.

Poch did a brillaint job and should have been backed, he's turned Spurs into a top 4 side on a shoe string, would imagine he's not far off break even in the transfer market; The likes of Walker, Rose, Alderwiereld, Eriksen, Ali & Kane all became top players under Poch, he should have allowed to build a new side the last 2 summers but wasn't. Spurs will likely lose 3 players this summer for free, Levy gets far too much credit for how Spurs have done. Spurs have finished in the top 4 the last 4 seasons under Poch and whilst United have spent about £400m on players since he took over Spurs are probably not far off break even. Spurs would be where Liverpool and City are if Poch had been backed properly.

Pochettino done a great job with Spurs given where he took them from when he initially took them over. Consistently finishing in the top 4 and being competitive on a budget smaller than most of their closest rivals all whilst playing a good brand of football. However something looked not quite right with Poch since the summer and it is like the chicken and the egg. Is he gone because he no longer wanted to manage Spurs or is he gone because Spurs no longer wanted him. I think it could well be the former. and for that reason I think that a parting of the ways might well suit both parties since Poch deserves to be given a budget to see if he can manage at the highest level and challenge consistently for the biggest trophies.

The biggest surprise for me is the appointment of Mourinho given the Spurs template for success and Levies reluctance to spend big money. I can see them losing a few of their best players in the next 12 months and they will struggle to replicate the success they had under Pochettino.

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2019/11/19/mauricio-pochettino-performed-miracles-tottenham-stuck-around/


After the highs of last season and a Champions League final appearance, Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham relationship came crashing down this campaign CREDIT: REX
Before Tottenham’s Champions League final against Liverpool, Mauricio Pochettino had his players breaking arrows that were pushed against their larynxes as part of a bonding exercise. Arrows to the back are much harder to stop.
Spurs have been an uneasy alliance between ‘underpaid’ players, a parsimonious board and a manager who was constantly weighing whether he was in the right place. Mauricio Pochettino’s talent as a coach is hardly in doubt, but his timing is not so clever. He stuck around too long and made himself vulnerable to the sack.
Whether through emotion, stubbornness or hesitation, Pochettino should have seen that his zenith had already been reached. Last season’s operatic quarter-final Champions League win against Manchester City and the rousing semi-final fightback against Ajax in Amsterdam were the high points of his final year in charge. But defeat to Liverpool in the final and a chaotic summer of non-reconstruction must have told Pochettino he was going to fall off the high-wire of his relationship with Daniel Levy.

The modern Tottenham are a clever trick of the light: glorious stadium, some fine players, possibly the world’s best No 9 (Harry Kane) and a record of top-four Premier League finishes that belies their reluctance to compete financially with Manchester City and Liverpool. Pochettino’s gift was to hide those contradictions behind an exuberant playing style and strong team spirit. But ‘over-achieving’ can only be stretched so far and it was a certainty that Spurs that would place self-interest ahead of a manager who took them further than they were entitled to go.
Twenty-five points from 24 league games since February is a damning statistic, unworthy of Champions League finalists. The question is: who do those numbers damn - the manager or the club’s owners, whose Messianic stadium project goes far beyond having a nice home for the football team. The new White Hart Lane is an entertainment complex and urban development project that asked Pochettino and his players to be happy with what they got.
 
Pochettino and Tottenham enjoyed incredible highs last season (including beating Ajax late on) but frustration was never far away for the manager CREDIT: ACTION IMAGES
 
Follow your club now for first access to all our news, views and analysis
Spurs
Architecture, though, does not carry you into the Champions League places, and when the inevitable frictions over contracts and wages developed real heat last season, Spurs were poorly-placed to use their Champions League final appearance as the launchpad for more success.
A day that should have been a breakthrough instead pitched them into a downward slide, with an obvious cooling of the relationship between players and manager. Once that goes, at a club playing relatively modest wages, you can say goodbye to the band-of-brothers ethos. Asking Tottenham’s squad to compete with Man City and Liverpool’s resources was fine until Levy and the owners kept players who wanted to leave and spent unconvincingly over the summer. No top team loses 18 games in 2019, is knocked out of the League Cup by Colchester and goes down 7-2 to Bayern Munich if there is harmony.As the story broke, Harry Redknapp, a former Tottenham manager, came on Sky Sports News to guarantee that Spurs will already have someone else lined up. “I know they spoke to [Carlo] Ancelotti when I was still at the club,” Redknapp alleged.
Spurs fans, for the most part disgusted, if social media is any guide, can at least be sure Levy will look to protect the investment in the stadium by hiring a crowd-pleasing ‘name.’ Or, in Jose Mourinho’s case, a crowd-silencing name. But in sacking the incumbent they ask another manager to perform a task that, in the end, defeated ‘Poch’: that of winning big for a club that fundamentally dislikes shovelling money into the top end of the transfer market.
They ask a lot of their managers, and quite why Pochettino went along so often with the buddy act with Levy is a question he will now have time to ponder. When he grumbled about the club not buying players, Pochettino often followed it up with praise for my-friend-Daniel. Too often for his own good he played the loyal servant going along with the party line. At other times he just seemed conflicted.
But the good news for him is that nobody will hold Tottenham’s bizarre 2019 against him (Champions League final, disastrous league form). Instead they will line him up for the top jobs - Manchester United included, as they should. As for Kane, Spurs will have a tough time persuading him that everything will be fine now that Pochettino has gone. Levy is going to run out of people to kid.

Mourinho might well get an initial bounce on results but even that is not guaranteed with a lot of players currently running down contracts and likely to leave either in January or next summer. However the bigger issue is the mess that Mourinho leaves behind for the next manager. It just seems like such a bizarre fit for Spurs given that they aren't likely to give him a hefty chequebook.

Said to my other half something was up that Pochettino got the sack during the international break, Mourinho must have been putting the squeeze on the board for a decision. 

Think Tottenham have been punching well above their weight this past few years and he gave the board a lot to be happy about, so they should have stuck out until the end of the season to make a decision at least. 

Not sure how Mourinho will do not managing a traditional "big team".  He has always been well funded and an embarrassment of riches in players to make an impact so this may well be a fair assessment of his managerial ability.  What would his expectation for a league finish be now given their current standing, top 6?

Said to my other half something was up that Pochettino got the sack during the international break, Mourinho must have been putting the squeeze on the board for a decision. 

Think Tottenham have been punching well above their weight this past few years and he gave the board a lot to be happy about, so they should have stuck out until the end of the season to make a decision at least. 

Not sure how Mourinho will do not managing a traditional "big team".  He has always been well funded and an embarrassment of riches in players to make an impact so this may well be a fair assessment of his managerial ability.  What would his expectation for a league finish be now given their current standing, top 6?

Does this apply to Porto?

And also, whatever about "traditional big team", they are a big team now. There are only 9 clubs in the world with larger revenues. Their revenues are larger than two of his previous clubs (Porto & Inter) combined.

Wouldn't it be funny if he was hired by Arsenal who finished  fourth above Spurs on goal difference.

Well in once sense, Porto did have some squad of players when they won Europe.  But I would count his time there as the platform he lifted himself onto bigger things from and he hasn’t really looked back since.  At Chelsea, Inter, Madrid and Man Utd he had money and the players to get the job done. 

When I say traditional “big” clubs I am well aware of Tottenham recent history, what I meant is they are not big in the sense they are going to attract the best players in the world to complement his squad and may not have the wage budget to either to some of his past, more high profile jobs.

I didn't know Spurs had refinanced their huge debt, looks like on great terms too. They'd made huge profits in their last 2 accounts, £230m combined but because of building the stadium hadn't spend much.

There could well be more money available to spend for Mourinho than most of us first thought.

Spurs only refinanced their debt in late September.

His big supporter friendly move will be a bid for Bale.

The standard of golf courses near London could clinch the deal.

Just saw that Spurs only won one game away in 2019. That's a bad 11 month record.  I expect Jose to do ok.  He has all the ingredients to win trophies with Spurs

Zlatan being linked with Spurs. He's a free agent, wouldn't be surprised if he links up with Mourinho again.  He could do a job until end of season.

Bale is on massive wages and very injury prone, don’t think he would be suited to a Mourinho team since he physically demands a lot from his players. Age profile wise he fits the bill alright and has serious ability though it’s debatable if he is the player he once was.

Ibra would have been the prototype Mourinho signing 5/6 years ago but I think he is way past it, albeit he could be a bench filler for 6 months if the player himself fancied the move.

Liverpool are only 31 points ahead of Totteringham after 21 games. Spuds won’t qualify for the CL at this rate.  8)

The Spuds don't have to finish ahead of Liverpool to qualify for the CL! They only have to do better than a pile of average mid-table sides and finish 4th!

They are only 9 points off 4th!

Only 9 points off fourth. Kane out for the best part of the season, Eriksen clearly doesn’t want to be there and Son when he’s not trying to end opposition players careers couldn’t hit a cows arse with a banjo.

Do you fancy a €20 bet that they don’t qualify for the CL?

You were comparing them to Liverpool when qualifying for a CL spot. A ridiculous comparison this season! If you give me the 11/2 odds that Paddy Power are offering, I'll bet €20!

I’m not Paddy Power.

You’re comparing Spuds to a pile of mid table sides, so you must be confident they’ll qualify. Make it €50 and we’ll donate the money to a charity of the winners choice.

Spurs playing Chelsea at the weekend also, should be a cracker.
