    Pochettino ‘very proud’ of Tottenham’s World Cup contingent

    8 players in the world cup semifinals and we're not a money bags team that splashes the cash around whenever they feel like it. That is absolutely incredible when you think about it. Take a bow Poch. I'd say at least 4 of those players are only there because of him.

    Southgate : Kane understands selection

    Do you not think that maybe, just maybe, he was asked that question directly by a journalist? Would you prefer he had said no comment, in which case they would've been all over 'the disharmony in the England dressing room'?

    Alassane Plea

    I guess its because when people think of a forward from the french league they think of njie or gkn. I watched a fair bit of him a couple of years ago when i was betting on nice every week as they were always great odds and he was probably their most important player then - definitely the...

    If thats a pen then its a matter of time til the attacking players start trying to kick the ball at the defenders arm to win a pen.

    100% no. Harry Kane wants the golden boot. John stones would probably even agree with harry taking it.

    Season Ticket Renewal Thread (Read first post)

    They always were overpriced. The worry for me is next year. When people realise how big a commitment it is to have a season ticket and the novelty of the new ground has worn off I can see a good 5 thousand or so dropping out with no-one to replace them. Unless of course we win the league or...

    Skybet, Paddy Power and William Hill price boosts ftw! I've also made a fair bit on a penalty to be awarded. Odds of 2/1 in every game near enough. I don't think they've adjusted the odds for VAR yet. Matter of time til they do.

    Dybala, Higuain, Aguero all look shit in this Argentina team. Really don't think you can put this one on Messi. Portugal have a game plan which revolves around defending well and using Ronaldo to the best of his abilities. This Argentina team is just a mess.

    World Cup Discussion Thread - Day 8 (21 June)

    You're missing my point, I'm talking about the rules of football, not how some refs choose to interpret them. Have a look through this and show me one place where it says anything about a non-deliberate handball. Every time it mentions "handles the ball" the word deliberate is also used...

    I don't see how that should've been a penalty at all. The whole point of the handball rule was to stop people picking up the ball and running off with it (I'm exaggerating here of course). If a handball is not deliberate it shouldn't be a handball by the letter of the law. The only grey area I...

    If a handball is not intentional then it's not a handball regardless of whether it's taken an advantage away from anyone. An unintentional handball means it might as well as hit you on the head as far as the rule is concerned.
