    A Realistic Perspective

    Generally speaking I'm extremely happy with where we are at the moment, we have as good a side as I can remember since being a Spurs fan from the mid seventies onwards even though it's an extremely bitter pill to swallow that the Semi Final losing streak has now been extended to 8 in a row. I...

    Champions League 2017-18

    Exactly, if Fazio was still with us and we'd played him against their electrifying pace and attack and lost 5-2 this website would have been crucifying Poch, whilst he has been effective for Roma by all accounts, any fool should have realised that tactically this would have been a game for him...

    Champions League 2017-18

    Whilst I get the essence of what you are saying, perhaps the Arsenal comparison is a bit of a stretch, there is no way on earth Arsenal would have turned over Barcelona in a Champions League Quarter final after going 4-1 down in the first leg....

    I'm hoping against hope but please let it be David Moyes, he deserves a medal for what he did to Man Utd, if he could repeat this feat with Arsenal I'd be chuffed to bits.

    Race for the Top 4 - 2017/18

    That my friend is 2 things, 1. Extremely dirty money ; and 2. Compensation for injury to feelings Why didn't you go the whole hog and add Chelsea winning FA Cup win into the mix.

    Player Watch Player Watch: Serge Aurier

    I read somewhere that of the 7 penalties we have conceded in total this season Aurier has been responsible for 4 of them, given the number of games he has played in proportion to the whole season it is a concern and something that both he and the coaching staff need to have a good look at and...

    Match Threads Brighton & Hove Albion vs Tottenham Hotspur - Match Thread

    If we are deliberately lulling Man Utd into a false sense of security to hit them with the sucker punch and teasing Chelsea before pulling away again then fine, if not it's high time we bucked our ideas up because it's crunch time !!!

    Race for the Top 4 - 2017/18

    Hands up how many of us would take the FA Cup and CL qualification in 4th place if it was offered to us right now? I wouldn't need to be asked a 2nd time I'd take that deal with both hands if it was offered right now, no questions asked.

    Match Threads Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City - Match Thread

    You have to be joking !!! Let's put this into perspective, he's only just come back from an injury, it was only his second full game back bar 15 mins against Chelsea, he scored a penalty the last time he played a top 3 side when we played at Anfield earlier in 2018. If he scores in the semis...

    Match Threads Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City - Match Thread

    Still making my way home from the game and I have to say we weren't half as bad as some have been claiming on here tonight, and the BBC write up on the game is a disgrace and plainly wrong and inaccurate. City didn't completely dominate that first half, they were in charge and put us under the...

    Match Threads Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City - Match Thread

    There are a maximum of 5 teams in it from one country, so even if those two were to win the both competitions and we were to finish 4th, the only way we would miss out is by Chelsea also finishing 3rd. Assuming Utd finish 2nd, Liverpool would also have to finish 5th. This disastrous scenario is...

    Is Gascoigne gonna have a crack?

    Today, I know it's asking for a lot but I'd happily settle for an Eriksen free kick in similar style to start things off followed by a brace from HK with them only scoring one in reply..........

    Is Gascoigne gonna have a crack?

    Even though I also went to the final against Forest I would have to say that for sheer atmosphere and drama it's a real tough call as to the best Spurs game I've been to, for me it's neck and neck between this Semi Final and the 1984 UEFA Cup final 2nd leg. I still remember saying to the bloke...

    Why Toby is heading for the exit door

    If the suitors are the usual suspects from Europe I.e Barca or Real Madrid, or new money PSG, and he has to leave I'd be insisting that they can afford exactly what any Premier League club can so forget £35 million it's £60m on the nose from them too.
