Lol at the faux outrage.

Honestly, if Vardy got injured tonight there wouldn't be a single Spurs supporter that thought, "Ah Jesus, that's a shame." Now I don't wish harm on the guy, but if he picked up an injury, I would be pleased as punch.

It's okay guys, I'm not advocating violence, I'm not actually hoping Pritchard comes on and gives him a career ending injury, but can we stop the whiter than white bollocks football fans come out with about how it's beyond the pale to wish injury on anyone.

Personally, I fucking hope Vardy gets injured and misses games. Because that's it - I hope a millionaire footballer who is the top scorer of the team in direct competition to mine gets crocked, gets a niggly injury and can't play football for a bit.

Doesn't make me a c**t. Makes me a Spurs supporter.
Hamstrings are my favourite. They're neither dangerous, permanent nor painful.

With us now needing to play Eriksen almost every game and Pritchard not getting many minutes this loan move looks like the massive f**ktardery it was always going to be

Came on in the 73 min, anyone see what he was like?
All I know is that Jenas managed to pull up a class bit of play by him in his analysis on MOTD, as an example of how well Norwich defended. I was watching through tired eyes, but it looked like he beat a couple of men in a tight spot and then threaded a ball through to a team mate who was closed out. Such a shame he got that injury during the summer, and I really hope he gets a full pre-season this time round.

My personal opinion, for what it's worth, is he was sent to west brom for more than just playing time. Pulis trains players physically and hard all season. Pitch trains them crazy hard for the first 2/3 of a season 3/4, whichever, then let's up for the run in. I think he's learned this from experience, his teams fading towards the end of previous season's, and I think they had a plan for training for the year, as in when to let up. I think pritch has been sent there as the hard training would do him good and he will get some mind in the league. Plus Pulis teams are physical, I bet the training is, so its good for pritch to be training with the type of players he will have next season. It's not a popular opinion but i actually think this will be hugely benificial for pritch next season.

Pochettino has already said we're still doing double training sessions, so there's not been any let up there. We're the fittest team in the league so I doubt his fitness would get any better training with West Brom.

That being so, they are going to be more physical, even in training, so if they want him to get used to that it's a good thing

I think we should recall him even though he can't play for us again this season. He's absolutely wasting his time up there, but at least back here he'd be involved in superior training sessions and be in a better environment all around.

it's annoying because fans who have never seen him play will just wrongly assume that he's not good enough. i expect him to take his chance in pre-season though, especially with a lot of the squad away at the euros.

just when you think this loan couldn't get any worse ...

Alex Pritchard is in the squad for West Brom U21s today. What a great loan that's been.

This is bad. Pritchard said that he wanted to go to West Brom as soon as he heard that they were interested. He went purely becuase it's a prem team. He would have gotten minutes for us if he had stayed. Hopefully he'll have a big impact next season.

His choice though.

Could have been playing every week for Burnley.

Might make him more determined when he comes back.
