    Let's All Laugh At... Let's All Laugh At West Ham

    The Spammers were constantly allowed to hide behind this ridiculous Olympic legacy nonsense, and it's a shame that the important decision makers couldn't see behind the real crude lie which was that they wanted nearly everything funded by everyone else, anyone with half a brain cell should have...

    Match Threads West Ham vs Spurs - Match Thread

    Clearly not the most attractive football we have played, but on seeing the first team I think a hard fought narrow win was the best we could have hoped for, and it his respect we duly delivered. The Spammers were always going to give it their all for this one and in that respect it came as no...

    Player Watch Player Watch: Eric Dier

    I hope he stays that angry this weekend, if he could repeat that battling performance by refusing to be intimidated and puts it about a bit with some aggression without going over top in what is likely to be a similar provocative tussle with Mark Noble and Arnautovic et al we could do with that...

    Match Threads Spurs vs Cardiff City - Match Thread

    After the huge effort we put in for the Barcelona game, despite it being a defeat, today was always going to be diffucult, the result and picking up no further injuries to key players was the most important thing. It has felt this week as though we are reminiscent of a boxer who has taken a few...

    The bloke sat next to me shouted at the time that was it out, and he was even more peeved off than I was that it was allowed to stand, and I agree that the crowd around where I was sitting were a little less than impressed with the officials.

    Indeed, having now had the chance to see replays there is no doubting the quality of the strike for the goal, but for reasons unknown, there are no slow motion stills or camera shots or replays of the ball going out after Lloris parried it. On Bt sport Martin Tyler commentating having seen mini...

    Anyone who has supported Spurs for long enough, and by that I mean over decades, will know and appreciate that last night encapsulated entirely what we are capable of in 90 minutes plus injury time in a football match. Spirit, bravery, passion and brilliance, heavily laced with rank bad...

    Absolutely, the roller-coaster rides they've taken us on over the years and decades, we always tend to be on the edge of our seats!

    How about this - They have 80% of the possession, we harass them and chase them all around the pitch like a pack of hungry wolves, throwing our bodies in front of the 50 shots they have at us, we nick 3 goals with our only 3 counter attacks of the entire game, they score 2, Lloris /Gazzaniga...

    No Verts, Eriksen, Dele and Dembele against the world's best team who have a point to prove after their poor start domestically. That doesn't make good reading and would normally scare the shit out of me. That said, when we weren't even...

    Let's All Laugh At... Let's All Laugh At West Ham

    This has got to be hypocrisy and stupidity of the highest order. How many times have we all heard bitter fans of theirs spout bitter bile about Spurs and then attempt to justify it by claiming that everyone team in the land hates us because we think we are better than we actually are !

    Relieved that we won but can we please have a game where we don't concede in the last couple of minutes or in injury time, that's the 3rd game in a row this has happened.

    If it's based on the last 5 seasons, as far as we're concerned there's not much in it between the FA Cup and the League Cup, yes we have reached the final once in those 5 seasons, but in the FA Cup in those same seasons we have reached the last 4 on more occasions than we have in the League Cup...

    The previous 5 seasons do not support this statement that it's the most winnable competition, it has been won in the last 5 seasons by Man City 3 times Chelsea once, and Man Utd once, so at the business end of it they do take it seriously, and the final is usually in a week when the Champions...

    Let's All Laugh At... Let's all wonder what's going on at United?

    Them being the media's firing line means we have a few days off, that seems to have been they way of it this season, one week it's been them, the next week it's been us, and so on....
