    Fuck me. This has got to be the daftest thing Ive read on here for a while. Yeah, because that's what we really need, the opposition pushed back another ten yards. If all of our full backs do this, how come they create 2 to 3 times as many chances as Walker does? Like Walker spent all his...

    Again, I didn’t dismiss his pace, I said it alone doesn’t make him the best rb in this league. You aren’t giving me any good explanation as to why you think he is. He’s quick, great, he makes less mistakes now than when he used to make loads, great, he doesn’t produce much because apparently...

    What happened to him?

    It’s not about convincing me he’s any good, it’s about convincing me he’s the best in this league. And if nothing else, those stats that you don’t like, prove he’s certainly not the best at interacting with other players to produce creative end product. This is the problem, you keep saying...

    In that case, It definitely doesn’t take the best RB in the league just to stretch a pitch and allow others to play (and city prove this by having Delph on the other side) and I’m even more puzzled as to what it is that is making people suggest Walker is the best RB in the league? I was using...

    But even then, what he does with the ball is really mediocre. Both our full backs (Davies and Trippier) contribute far more creatively and in terms of forward game play than Walker does. It's remarkable how similar Walker and Aurier's creative stats are. Davies makes double the key...

    FFP 2.0 impact on Spurs

    It's actually the complete reverse of that. It's the old money uber clubs trying to maintain their hegemony over upstarts like City, PSG, Chelsea, Monaco etc. The very last thing they want is competition for the domination they've spent decades building. I think you and I have discussed this...

    The Spurs Youth Thread - 2017/2018

    Has Edwards done anything remotely as fucking idiotic, crass and out of order as Rose did in a national newspaper? Jesus, is all this fucking hoo ha about Griffiths re-tweeting about Barca being interested in him? Fuck me, if I was 17 I'd want all my mates to see it. Jesus wept, all these kids...

    Really?, think back to Walker when Poch got here. Defensively he was atrocious. And I don't just mean the outlandish fuck bombs he'd drop. He would get distracted from the man with the ball if someone ran past him quicker, he had virtually no game reading, just "race me" and people like Zaha and...

    I don't really understand how Walker is being hailed as the best RB in the PL and Aurier as a terrible player in the same thread, maybe even by the same people. They are almost identical players with almost identical strengths and flaws. Walker is just three years older and three years of Poch...

    Arsenal

    It's just not that simple. It's one thing managing a group with cliques, it's another when those cliques are far more valuable assets than you are and are given carte blanche to ignore and disrupt your methods, and are actively interfering in the collective working routine and the people above...

    Serie A 17-18

    I think Sarri fucked up there a little, because I have a feeling Juve are going to be in more flux next year than they have for a while. That team really needs rebuilding and Napoli could have cleaned up IMO. If Ancelloti wins the title next year, it's going to be very much on the back of what...

    Tottenham Hotspur Goals & Assists 2017/2018

    I think that’s a valid argument, but not a complete one. Suarez for example scored 25 and assisted 12. I think there are too many occasions when Kane makes poor choices, when his chance of scoring is very small but there is someone with a much higher chance if he passes. I accept completely...

    Tottenham Hotspur Goals & Assists 2017/2018

    Kane's a phenomena and all, but if there's a part of his game that's got to improve it's his assists. Salah hit 32 goals and still managed 10 assists. Kane 30 and 2. It's not just about numbers for number's sakes. There are times when he has to put the team ahead of himself. Make better...
