Serious question, why do Sky continually put that biased c**t Alan Smith on commentary for Tottenham games?
It’s just to wind us up surely.
The Sky pundits are so clearly biased. All about Swansea not getting decisions.
Wonder if they’ll talk about the Dele or Son clear penalties?
The coverage is so shit, I use IPTV and watch US television now, never thought I'd say that but it's a godsend having a slightly less shit choice...

I'm leaning towards giving KWP minutes now. I'm sick of seeing him getting caught out by passes behind him. I'd be more than happy to sell him and invest in other pressing areas.

I realise this may be a little harsh but it's a weakness and it's going to cost us points sooner or later.
I think he already has like Burnley at home. The frustrating thing is there were more than enough fans who saw Tripps for what he is which is great offensively but he doesn’t have the engine or pace to get up and down to be a genuine top level RB especially in a back 4. I loved having him as a squad player as about as good as you can get for a back up but I don’t think he is good enough to be starting as many games as he has exceptional game against Madrid apart

Aurier is also v raw but had the tools to be top bracket if it all clicks concentration wise and don’t see how we will ever know if KWP can make the step up if we don’t give him minutes but he was motm in the only game he’s played!

How did we not beat them at home? KWP has to start over trippier now, I'd sell him. Way too often a ball is played behind him into the channel and he doesn't know how to beat a man. Useless against fast players and teams that sit back
There was an example with Davies too. Except Davies used his body and intelligence to recover, whereas Trippier was unable to recover or he recovered but didn't get close enough to the winger to stop him from crossing/passing. Walker was a completely different level to him and I'm confident Aurier will be too. I have praised Trip in the past, unfortunately he just isn't quite at it defensively.

Tough grind but a good 3 points.

Started well but as the pitch deteriorated, so did we. Very fortunate not to concede. Great to see Vic back. Gives us a lot of flexibility.

Worried about our full backs bar Aurier with Rose injured. Tripper has regressed from last season and Davies is nowhere near his early season form.

The heavy conditions will take it out of us, so Poch will need to rotate for West Ham.

They are a fine pair of tits though ...
You'd think so but I think the publicity outweighs the funbags. Granted you wouldn't get many of her norks in a fire bucket but size is all they got going for them. After many years research, including countless hours fast forwarding and pausing ummm.gif I came (literally) to the conclusion that Hayley has the finest ta-ta's on the firm and whatshername, Kirsty, runs her a very close second.

I'll have to do more research and make a call on this ruling ...

Not all players need minutes to step up, sometimes it just clicks for them i.e Winks.

Anyone remember a certain Man U striker scoring about 8 off side goals that all stood in the first 15 ish games at start of last season and all you heard from Sky was 'was a great finish though.'
Tossers.

Will be huge for us second half of the season
Make a few huge tackles in the time he was on and also stopped them equalising at 1-0 we will now realise just how good he is and how much we’ve missed him. In our best CI he starts every time.
