Colchester and Norwich...
Can you hear that?...Really, it is soothing....the sheer...silence.....
Tranquility, save a couple of birds in the distance tweeting about a new striker. A reassuring calmness, not uneasy, just deeply satisfying...
Two more wins, not just effective but comprehensive, have not really changed much in our season but while all around them is chaos and uproar Pochettino's Tottenham just keep on keeping on. Every step back is followed by two forward, every decision seems to be, if not completely correct, at least pushing us forward. With Leicester vs Man City kicking off early on saturday, a Spurs win over Watford at the Lane will see us either two points off the top or move into second place. And you know what? It doesn't feel like we are peaking, it does not feel like we are running at full capacity and something will break.
The transfer window closed with nothing boosted but the bank balance, but if Poch did not want someone then I am more than okay with that. To have that kind of respect, after 18 months, in this era of football, is impressive.
Made a profit, and has a manager who does not want to spend for the sake of it. And the team is doing well too. Everything is coming up Levy.
Couple of goals against Colchester continues the Chadli renaissance.
I was surprised there were rumours linking him with a move away, even on loan, but now he looks to have an extended run in the first team.
I wonder if the Carrow Road crowd ever thought Kane would come back to haunt them time after time?
Federico Fazio, Milos Veljkovic, Shaq Coulthirst
All have a chance to kick start their careers, in various ways. Best of luck to them.
A loan move, and regular football, is a good move, however I am unsure whether a move to West Brom was wise. Pulis is not known for using tricky little players, and in Callum McManaman Pulis has a tricky wide player who has not really succeeded there. Maybe it will all turn out okay, but after six months out with injury the last thing Alex needs is six months sat on the bench for a struggling team.
To be honest, if a bit of uncertainty is the worst thing that happened this week, we will survive.
