Over the last few weeks supporting my beloved Spurs has driven me crazy. I feel as if I have developed a split personality.
The good side still loves the super Spurs( and wants Martin Jol to remain in charge ). The bad moody side hates Spurs (at the moment) and has run out of patience with the big man. I am sad to say that at the moment the bad tempered moody side has got a grip of me and is making my blood boil.
The Ars#### away 2nd leg was the final straw for me. I was getting more and more agitated as the game got nearer. Why ? Because deep down I knew my beloved Spurs were going to get beaten! (and believe me I am normally very optimistic, I've booked my flight to Glasgow already UEFA Cup).
Why shouldn't Spurs expect to go to the emir#### and get a result against a weakened nomad team? Because our team has no self belief, the game is lost before a ball is kicked, you can see it when we go ahead against the top teams (Chelski at home an exception) That belief has to be instilled from the manager/coach.
I never hear positive fighting talk from either Martin or Chris, in fact they seem to talk the opposition up the whole time, no wonder the players lack belief. We seem content to eke out a point away from home when we have the players and team capable of murdering a lot of the prem. opposition but we never do or look like doing.
My Spurs LOVING side argues that I have to be patient, Spurs have a young team, they are going places, the manager is the best thing since sliced bread, the team are a little inconsistent at the moment, we have a few injuries, we were a little unlucky in the last game, we played well first half , then my ANGRY head roars back Bol###ks, we were piss poor, clueless, gutless, spineless, sh###e no passion ,no fight, no determination, and worse still totally unprofessional, and the results and manner of the results is what sways the argument for me:
Leicester 2-0 thrown away (FA Cup)
Grimsby ( say no more )
WBA away 2-0 ( relegated side )
Bolton away 2-0 this season
Liverpool away 3-0
Newcastle away 3-1 (game over after 20 mins)
Man utd home 4-0 (game over just after h/time)
Everton home (10 men)
Fulham away (10 men)
Blackburn away ( 10 men )
Ars#### away 3-0 (didn't turn up)
You can see why I am struggling here.
Yes we have performed excellently in the UEFA Cup, and I hope we go on to reach the final and win it , believe me nothing would make me happier than to see Martin Jol and Chris Hughton turn this around, but the next few games could decide who will be our manager next season, fingers crossed it comes good.
