    What our opponents' fans are saying about us 17/18

    We all want us to win everything, that should go without saying. Why do you think that it makes the slightest difference whether or not you are “happy with 4th place certificate”? It’s not like Poch is going to turn up at training and say “sorry lads, I’ve just been on spurscommunity and...

    Let's All Laugh At... Let's all laugh at Liverpool thread

    As much as I dislike Liverpool, I must say they have really nailed the perfect shade of red for a football shirt this year and next year. It just a little bit richer and darker than their previous kits (or Utd's and Arsenal's). It makes all the difference. The white collar for this season's is...

    Season Ticket Renewal Thread (Read first post)

    I'm still pretty pissed off about the prices. I imagine that a fair few people are in my position of thinking, I'm not sure if this is worth the money, but given that this is my only chance I'll get one this year and reassess next year. I imagine there will be a fair few non-renewals at the end...

    Player Watch Player Watch: Harry Kane

    I do not understand the psychology of people who hear a hundred people make a joke and think “wouldn’t it be funny if I made that exact same joke”. It’s humour without any wit, inventiveness or surprise. The only thing that can be said for it is that you can guarantee a bunch of people will...

    Player Watch Player Watch: Harry Kane

    In fairness, both of them backed Harry when people were calling him a one-season-wonder etc. They are media people and it’s sort of their job to get involved in these slightly ridiculous things. It’s pretty harmless and hardly malicious.

    Player Watch Marcus Edwards

    Maybe the point is getting him to see that. As some other people have said though, we should be careful about leaping to conclusions about what type of person Edwards is. The Ravel Morrison comparisons are unfair I think; there are a million and one different ways that a teenager can lack the...

    Player Watch Player Watch: Harry Kane

    We work all week, spend a big chunk of it on some of the most expensive tickets in the world, spend all day on Saturday travelling to the other side of London to watch games (or otherwise watch them on tv), rant and rave about every bit of bad luck that we have, dance around hugging complete...

    The well known “miffed about the goal but not bothered about appealing” expression. Unmistakable.

    That’s some precise body language radar you’ve got there.

    I don’t understand how people can complain that it’s “cringe” and “small-time”, but also be desperate for Salah to win it. Either it matters or it doesn’t. If it doesn’t, then who cares? If it does matter, then why shouldn’t he claim it if he scored? Football fans on the internet are absolutely...

    Let's All Laugh At... Let's all laugh at Liverpool thread

    This could have been interesting. Unfortunately, the person who wrote the article simply does not possess the necessary skills (or, I suspect, intelligence) to perform the analysis that he is attempting. For example, take his initial claims regarding the percentage of penalties awarded to...

    Season Ticket Renewal Thread (Read first post)

    It seems pretty much implausible to me that they would start the whole sale from scratch if the tickets aren't selling. Is there any precedent of this ever happening with a premier league club, or any club for that matter? Do you suppose that they would refund the difference to people who have...

    F.A. Cup 2017/18

    That’s interesting and a good way of working it out. (I got the same by calculating that there are 105 possible sets of pairings and 24 possible sets of pairings where none of the “big four” meet. For the 24, you consider the big four as separate pots, and there are 4! ways of placing the...

    Player Watch Marcus Edwards

    Exactly. Given that Pritchard has played 477 minutes, that means he has made two assists this season. For all the numbers and graphs, it is obvious that this doesn't really prove anything at all. It reminds me of when Giroud would get a couple of goals off the bench in the first few months of...

    Players running down contracts

    With the way things are going, I can imagine in the near future the top players (Messi, Ronaldo, Lewandowski etc.) all being on one or two year contracts for huge amounts of money. It makes sense for the players (in that they can constantly look for the best deal) and, to some extent, the clubs...
