    Hello folks.

    Over the past weeks/months, I have noticed a rising trend. No matter how well we are performing (and considering our injury list, our recent run has been nothing short of superb) or how we manage to grind out results, the sheer number of people posting anti-Harry or anti-"insert-player-name-here" bile is growing and often overwhelms any discussion topics.

    It is becoming tiresome and certainly off-putting. I am by no means saying that we should not criticise the team or Harry when it is deserved, but it seems some come on here with a set agenda to post negative and inflammatory bile regardless of the situation or the topic.

    I am not calling for anyone to be banned, because different opinions are part of what makes this site so interesting and thought-provoking.

    There are threads for discussing how much they hate Harry, or how sh*t the team is, but it happens every time we go a goal down in match threads, or in any number of other threads. It is pathetic, especially in view of how we have managed some incredible comebacks all season, and where we sit in the table. It puts me off posting, and sends me elsewhere online. I know I am not alone in this feeling.

    This is a brilliant site. I am only writing because I am keen for it to stay as the best Spurs site on the web.

    100% agree (well, 99% - I think we needed a striker).

    Have some rep sir.

    I think we're all entitled to our opinions, this is a site for Spurs fans and for non-fans who happen to 'follow' Spurs alike.

    I quite like the banter, and the fact that people change their minds constantly - hate them one minute, love em the next, express their frustration, the level of expectation and the fact that the Fans ARE Spurs - the manager isn't, players aren't nor are the Board - they come and go, but FANS stay! Hence fans can express their opinion whether positive or negative as long as it doesn't turn into filth or unwarranted profanities and insults or childishness for childishness and filth sake.

    and this is what makes this site great!

    Hence I disagree with the original poster, and suggest he just let things be.

    I think this site is a fair reflection of us as Spurs fans and our relationship with the team and the club - love them, hate them, love a player, hate the same player, love a manager, hate the same manager, love the tactics, hate the tactics, want stylish football, want winning football, want all out attack, want defencive solidity, want to be top four, don't want to sell our soul to achieve it, want to spend money to bring in players, want to use financial constraint to secure the club's future, want to stay at WHL, want to leave, want a bigger ground, want to maintain the atmosphere at that new ground, love Levy, hate Sugar, love Hoddle, hate Graham, love King, hate Gallas, love Redknapp, hate Redknapp, Hoddle was better than Mackay, Lacy was worse than Scales.

    Debate is healthy, but we should acknowledge that we are all Spurs fans and while we might not always agree with each other we can agree with one thing, we want Tottenham Hotpsur to be successful.
