    Mauricio Pochettino

    I agree, but suggesting Jose wasn't backed (suggesting united dont back their manager), but then suggesting Woodward likes to spend big (suggesting they would for the right man). Its a simple case of how much Levy values Poch. We can only hope its as much as we do, or this house of cards is...

    Team for Inter...

    Whatever the team, the NLD team must be unchanged from the Chelsea game (bar Vertonghen coming in). Warm up Vertonghen for the derby on weds but apart from that id be happy with most combinations. Just hope we get through it without any injuries

    Winter Transfer Wishlist

    Unless he has a kane like miraculous upturn, Onomah isnt going to be good enough now. Its a shame as we all had high hopes. Unfortunately for him, we've surpassed what his progression has been and we'd be fuming if he started league games for us now. He'll make a good career for himself. Just...

    Match Threads Crystal Palace vs Spurs - Match Thread

    One of those weird bogey, but not quite bogey teams we have. Never easy and always frustrating against them, but we typically end up getting over the line.... Just. Would be nice to control things for once and have a nice comfortable win. Im positive because weve been playing a lot better...

    Player Watch Player Watch: Davinson Sanchez

    Largely pleased with him and glad he'll be a mainstay for years, but still understandably has a lot to learn. Luckily we have a perfect manager for his development. I was screaming at the TV when he let that ball bounce in injury time leading to that free kick. Why wouldnt you just put your...

    Match Threads Spurs vs PSV Eindhoven - Match Thread - (CL Group stage - 2nd leg)

    Cant wait for the inter game. The fans need to be as up for it as the players though. An actual atmosphere will be essential that night. Barcelona would have comfortably won the group by then. Of course they will, but they'd be mad to play Messi. Listening to the radio last night, it sounded...

    Match Ratings Ratings vs Wolves

    We need to get out shit together defensively. Couple of seasons ago when we were either blowing teams away, or keeping it tight at the back it was fine, but now we're doing neither and against a team like (dare I say it) arsenal, we'll get hammered

    Der Spiegel Football Leaks revelations

    Only plus side would be seeing arsenal get pumped week in, week out when they actually have to play someone half decent. I could be one of those wanky hipsters that support 'football' aka whoever is playing arsenal that week.

    Tomorrow is a game I've looked forward to them playing all season. A direct, pressing team full of pace, against their shambles of a back 4 and high line. I think I speak for all of us when I say, I absolutely hate Liverpool, but I'd love for them to smash arsenal 5-0 in their own gaff.

    Der Spiegel Football Leaks revelations

    Football is financially corrupt shocker. Whatever next, a secret dossier that exposes John Terry to be a complete ****? Nothing will ever come of FFP because those that break the rules, own the ones that can punish by having them by the balls in terms of making revenue. If uefa ban PSG then...

    Player Watch: Christian Eriksen

    You do all realise we have 2 games in 3 days right? I'd expect Eriksen and Alli to start tomorrow.

    Winter Transfer Wishlist

    I don't get the fascination over a 2nd striker. We were fantastic with a fluid front 3 last season when Kane was out and even City chose to go with David Silva up front as opposed to a very competent backup in Jesus. We don't need a direct backup as it isn't going to happen. Having that...

    Match Threads Spurs vs Man City - Match Thread

    It's games like this that fill me with the dread we should be instilling in the smaller teams in the league. We've seen us start badly so many times in big games, it wouldn't surprise me for a minute to see us 2-0 down after 15 mins and 3-0 before HT. Before a half decent 2nd half performance...

    Mauricio Pochettino

    Not in the case of Sissoko according to his book and even that was in the early hours on the last day. Same with Llorente, it was literally those or nothing on the last day of the window. It's not like he got exactly who he wanted all summer. He took them because if nothing else it's a body to...

    Mauricio Pochettino

    That might work at Burnley or Cardiff but you can't expect to be competitive in competitions like the Premier league or Champions league if the tools you're given aren't on the same level as your rivals. Our first 11 when fully fit is rivalling any in the league. Scratch beneath the surface and...
