    Mauricio Pochettino

    If you were feeling particularly well disposed towards him, you might even mean it as a compliment (y) http://www.write.com/writing-guides/general-writing/word-choice/complement-versus-compliment/

    I swear...there are some right bluddy trout whisperers on this forum :rolleyes:

    Mauricio Pochettino

    Seriously...I'd put out the bunting and have an effing street party - with giantatron screens of his big gurney face saying "Lamela inserted himself in between poor van Dyke and the ball just so he would get toe-punted and win a penalty" on constant loop :woot::woot::woot:

    Mauricio Pochettino

    And what has Pochettino said about managing an elite level club? He says he wants to manage an elite level club - THFC. He wants to make us an elite level club. And once the stadium is completed we will have everything in place to make us an elite level club - so long as there is a shrewd, canny...

    Player watch: Toby Alderweireld

    I think that was a Lamela/TA combo - it was certainly missing last season with Lamela out.

    Player watch: Toby Alderweireld

    I agree with this. It's galling that we had the best back four in the Prem - whodda thought we could ever say that - but by the end of the summer we could have lost three of them. I guess it is just indicative of the fact that no matter how edifying it is to build up to challenge organically...

    Player watch: Toby Alderweireld

    Which is one of the benefits of having a manager like Poch. We all agree that it would be a tad disappointing losing TB (the level of disappointment differs from fan to fan). But there are certain constants with Poch and how he likes to build his squad. Firstly, he likes to work with young...

    Player watch: Toby Alderweireld

    Folk tend to let the Mickeys off the hook a bit in the financial doping stakes 'cos they aren't City/Chelsea. I posted recently a good article showing how J Henry had mini-doped them subtly - just can't remember where. On top of which, and this is the bit that really goes past some, they pay...

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

    Indeed. Another one of those games where the scoreline barely tells the full story.

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

    Not only was it not a goal, and not only did match referee Martin Atkinson admit after the game that he made a mistake, but he recently confessed that the single, sole and solitary reason he made that mistake was because the Chelsea players wheeled away celebrating the goal so he thought they...

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

    This. Another way of looking at it (and I know CL is a different governing body): When Liverpewel won the CL, there was the big whinge/whine that even though they had failed to qualify by the specified route for the next season's tournament. The rules were changed and with immediate effect to...

    Race for the Top 4 - 2017/18

    Before Liverpool played United, folk on here were proclaiming that they had an easier run-in than us. An independent analysis at that time, utilising various factors and data including league position of remaining opponents, calculated that Liverpool had the second easiest run-in of the top six...

    What the pundits are saying about us

    The funny thing is, he might just actually be right - Mourinho may well have looked at a 2-2 away to Juve (or anyone else for that matter), and set out to stifle out a 0 - 0 draw, with the possibility of a break-away goal at some stage just to wrap it up. What punters like Shearer fail to...

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

    TBH, I thought the Spammers were a bit harsh on the Jesus fella. He could see that his people were in distress. Burnley had come upon them like a lion on the sheep-fold. Pharoah Sean Dyche came up out of Egypt with his legions of chariots and was trampling them underfoot. He only entered the...
