Doom and gloom

Doom and gloom

We should have been handed the Premier league trophy before a ball had been kicked this season, that along with the Europa, the FA and League cup. An historic and famous quardupel.

Because 100 million squid always wins everything. With our recent successes (2 league cups, 3 FA's, 2 joint Charity Shields and the UEFA Cup Winners cup!) in the last 34 years, our fans have grown so accustomed to winning, that to not win a trophy this year is completely unacceptable.

Especially since we spent 100 million squid, because as we all know, thats what wins you everything all the time. I think its disgracefull how the other teams of the league have not acknowledged our birthright, and rolled over in suplication for their masters.

There is only one answer and solution, Sack the owners!!! Sack the manager!!! Sack the coaches, the ball boys, the stewards...everyone from the ground up. I hate that this great club has been built in a financially viable way. We should have had Chinese owners pouring sweat shop billions into us years ago.

I would far happier playing in the colour of the chinese flag as red represents courage and determination. In fact we could have bought far more titles than we did this season, cause as we know. 100 million squid always wins everything.

Great article actually. Only 6 games to go and it is still mathematically possible for us to break the clubs all time PL points total. So although the season has been turbulent, it been anywhere near as disastrous as some would have you believe.

Jerkinmajurgen... Griddo began his criminal career as a petty drug dealer in his native Turkey. His legendary persona is born when rival Hungarian smugglers invade his house while he is away, rape his wife, and hold his children hostage; when Griddo arrives, they kill one of his children and demand that he give his business to them. Instead, Griddo kills his own family and all but one of the Hungarians, who he knows will tell the Mafia what has happened. Once his family is buried, Griddo goes after the mob and kills dozens of people, including the mobsters' families, friends, and even people who owe them money. He then goes underground, never again doing business in person he surface here on vital Spurs a year ago. You never heard this from me.......

Highgate, fair comment re Negredo, but one thing he has over Soldado, at least he had a good run before he went into his bad run, whereas Soldado has been crap all season, and just doesn't look like a PL player. His performances remind me of Morientes another prolific Spanish Striker who came to Liverpool could never hack it and moved on.

Thomas Jamme, very droll, and the irony, and blatant sarcasm, are mildly amusing, but unless it is a complete wind up, it suggests that you are satisfied, and unconcerned, regarding our performances, league position, and sound hammerings received against the proper teams, that have featured this season. Yes we re-cycled £111M of the proceeds from the sales of Bale, Huddlestone, Dempsey, Caulker etc. on 7 international footballers, most of them the wrong international footballers, so that consequently only 1 of these players, Eriksen, has shown with any consistency that he is a sound investment, whilst the other six have either been injured most of the time (Lamela, Chiriches), or have been shown to be poor (Soldado), or have been the victims of the dislike of the coach, so they don't play regularly (Paulinho, Capoue, Chadli), in addition we play top players regularly in a tactical shambles, often in the wrong position (Vertonghen). I suppose the kindest way of describing the situation is to say that the "coach" is struggling to know how to use these players to the teams best advantage, in fact is struggling with all aspects of managing a PL team, which is hardly surprising given his total lack of knowledge and experience, in fact it is a scandal that he got the job in the first place. No £111M does not ensure success, but what it should do, is to ensure that you have a squad capable of competing for the top 4, and the domestic trophies, and yes possibly to get past the first proper team we meet in the EL. Not only have we failed to compete with the better teams, but have been hammered mercilessly in most of these games, have been totally disorganised tactically, lacking game plans, are unable to change the course of games after the KO, and have become the hack's and the TV pundits laughing stock. On top of that our "coach" then talks like a demented muppet to the media, subjecting the club to greater ridicule. Some of us are less than sattisfied with the direction in which the club is heading, a situation that will further deteriorate, when the exodus of the better players begins in the summer. The vultures are already circulating over Vertonghen, Paulinho, Capoue, Chiriches, Lloris, and even perhaps Karl Walker. It is also the case that the lack of CL, or indeed any European football as seems likely, will impact on the quality of the players we are likely to attract, as it is unlikely that potential signings will believe the empty, as it turns out, promises made to the newcomers last summer. We are, unless we are extremely careful how we proceed, entering a cycle of regression at this club, and we urgently need to get the right people, doing the right things, unless we want to waive top 4,5,6 places goodbye in the future, The current hierarchy, and their suitability and competency going forward, are in need of urgent revue.

Excellent article, yes i would sack the owners, definitely the manager and all his "coaches" and the medical staff, I would keep the rest of the staff though. You have just gone slightly over the top though. Just get a chairman who knows something about football,after all he does run a football club, Levy might just as well be a chinaman.

Frank, agree with your passionate posting. I want my club to move forward and I simply can't stand around and see car crashes occur every week. I backed Juande, Harry and AVB although I didn't want them at the club. I backed the present one (I didn't not want him) until I heard what he said post Chelski game... It's far too easy to blame the new ones... there are plenty in front of them for the blame to be apportioned.
We do need to ask for Levy to stand aside from the footballing aspects - he ain't no good... and go for for a boss with completely different profile to those of who has appointed before!!

We can't go on with the talking disaster beyond May 11 2014.

Longtimespur - I don't agree that non agreement is like moaning. Support without challenge is a disaster waiting to happen. I fear that's the case in the boardroom (support without challenge) and I fear that's what happened at the ground where in fear of being accused of being disloyal, we've stayed quiet despite one disaster after another since I don't know when.

When at WHL/away games I support the team to the best of my ability... not one boo... but I fear things are about to change, to change the mindset of those in charge.

What a fiasco it has been.

It appears that silly season is set to continue. It is all over Newsnow that the latest person to express a longing for the Spurs job is Ledley King. I sincerely hope that this doesn't mean that Levy will have another "punt", and risk the short to medium term future, of the club's on field performance. Contrary to what Tim Sherwood says, and apparently believes, PL management is pretty difficult, at least it is if you want to do it properly. Ledley was a great player, a Spurs legend, but the PL is not the place to learn how to be a manager, and he could risk his status and popularity amongst Spurs fans if he made the pig's breakfast of the job, that Sherwood has. Potential leaders should go down the leagues to learn their trade before exposure in the PL, particularly at a potential top 4,5 club like THFC. We need a proven, experienced and successful manager at Spurs, a LVG, or Capello, or Ancelotti, no disrespects to Ledley King.

shi1 article, I respect it as you've a right to write your opinions but this has been the worst season in year, even the ramos/rednapp year was more enjoyable. £100m doesn't guarantee buy you success but it should buy you two very decent players, not 6 shockers and one Eriksen.....

I got this email from Tottenham and thought it was a later April fools day joke:

"Meet Soldado, Capoue, Chiriches and Chadli this Easter!"

No, f&(k off, what am I going to say to them, 'have you meet each other, you want to try it and try putting a few passes together'...

Frank I agree with what you said mate. I am also filmly in the sack Sherwood camp, made some awful decisions, Arsenal subs for example, and now becoming a disgrace speaking out against a TRUE spurs legend. The worse thing about that is he is disagreeing with Hoddle's point our players are not up for it, Vertonghen is playing like we've been relegated FFS.

all this disappointment and anger because we are not better is ... crazy.. feck it. it's just football. if my happiness depends on some millionaire jokers who should splash the cash and win trophies for me then I am in real trouble. That's why it's great to support the mickey mouse clubs, they can't really break your heart unless you're an idiot. Speaking of low budget clubs:

Oct 24, 2012, Ajax beat Manchester City 3-1 in the Champions League. Ajax fans held the banner "against modern football," and the team their side fielded that day had been accumulated for an estimated £3.5 million.

even Arsenal fans are disappointed and angry because they haven't won trophies but the fact is they have more reasons to be proud of what their club is achieving than those clubs who buy their trophies with ridiculous spending while most of the fans who make it all happen have no idea how 6 digits even look like in real life.

Those who thought of FFP know what I am talking about, shame though that there seem to be enough loopholes for clubs to keep doing their thing while still complying with the FFP conditions.

All the ingredients that led to our heightened expectations last summer still exist. A deep squad littered with world class players. They are simply demoralised and disillusioned (as are we) that the plan that persuaded them all to come has been flushed down the toilet. And now they have an absolute moron leading them who is so far out of his depth on every level its embarrassing. There is still a chance to save this by breaking the bank and bringing in a LVG, capello level manager who can instantly command respect and get this squad firing. If sherwood is allowed to continue there will be an exodus of the talent whilst he focuses on bringing in 'tryers' in his own image. We will be back to mid-table at best. Lets hope levys mismanagement of the situation does not continue.

People used to just enjoy football in it's simplicity, it's unpredictability and the thrill of an unexpected win. We revelled in watching the one-off players that excite with a superb piece of skill, a wonderful moment of magic. We admired the blood and guts bravado of the tough guy, the fighter. Now? Now we crave an entire squad of so-called world-class players. The thrill, it seems, is in the fantasy, YouTube world of spending ridiculous sums of someone else's money based on 2 minutes of pixilated highlights. The Champions league is the be all and managers are crap until they've won everything. (Some poor sods, even before they've barely had enough time to think about their first match in charge, are written off). A bunch of costly, spoilt and overpaid prima donnas are defended for not bothering and, the ones who care and show grit and spirit, are belittled for not being world class. Simply put, at the end of the day, It's still just football. Football, for football sake.... Please!
