'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Tottenham Hotspur Vs. Fulham.

Its official! we have the worst defensive record in the Premiership. We have now conceded 18 GOALS this season through defensive errors, the only teams that come close to our total is Southampton at 11 and Norwich at 10. Even the Gooners have 10 errors that led to a goal against them.

We started the season with conceding just 2 goals in 10 matches then Newcastle won at WHL and we arrived at Citeh and the wheels fell off our wagon and we have been bumping along the ground ever since.

There is an old joke; the Inflatable Chairman talking to the Inflatable Manager in front of the Inflatable Football club who says; "you have let me down and you have let yourself down, but, most of all, you have let your club down"! Well the excuses may come but the credibility of Mr Daniel Levy with the locals here in North 17 is lower than the credibility of our defence.

We are once again going into a new season with limited resources because the £108m that we spent last summer has not produced the goods and we dont have the money now to buy anyone of any note to fill the skill gaps that we have in the squad. The cost of the Northumberland is going to limit our spending power, unless we have a mass exodus of players, in which case Levy will make replacements but he probably wont be prepared to exceed the balance sheet.

If the Gooners finish 5th and win the FA Cup we could still end up in the Europa even if we do come 6th and that will be an added strain on players. Given the injuries we have had since September last year its difficult to know if we have the strength in depth to hold down a credible European challenge.

On balance you have to look at Liverpool and think that, without European committments, they were able to mount a challenge for the Premiership and maybe a season without Europa would give Spurs the chance to re-group. Unfortunatley, we will also have 3 season`s of being nomads with Wembley, Upton Park and maybe even Milton Keynes as home venues whilst the Northumberland Park Stadium is built.

Fulham could not win a raffle let alone a match until Magath took over two months ago and he is getting the results he needs to get them out of jail. Given that the God of Freak results is now making an appearance; Palace have beaten Everton at Goodison and Sunderland draw with Citeh, go figure? So brace yourselves for what may come at WHL.

Apparently, Magath has always been a bit of a disciplinarian and he orders his players to report in at the club`s training ground in time for breakfast. They all eat together at lunch time as well. Not bad for a club who have used 41 different players in the first team this season! No bacon butties anymore, muesli and prune juice by the sounds of things, must make the pre match huddle interesting!
Rodallega is their new Messiah having spread himself out on the pitch after scoring two goals in two matches! Fulham need 7 more points to stay up and you can bet that Spurs will be on their hit list after the Sunderland/Crystal Palace result mid-week.

Our dwindling Tim confirmed that Spurs are without Erik Lamela who will miss the rest of the season. Kyle Walker, Jan Vertonghen, and Etienne Capoue are all long-term injury concerns. Roberto Soldado and Jan Vertonghen also look set to miss out but Dembele may be in with a shout. For Fulham Lewis Holtby is ineligible for the game, while Cauley Woodrow faces a fitness test. Damien Duff and Kostas Mitroglou are also out for the Cottagers.

Rodeallega will miss Holtby who has been a good engine for Fulham and one player we could have done with in hind sight. However, Kaboul feels he is returning to his best, maybe not error free,  but at least fit and looking forward to next seasons campaign...at Arsenal apparently!.......aren`t we all Younes,  aren`t we all mate! Touch of the Sol Campbell`s rather than the Ledley King`s for our Younes!

Spurs have lost just two Premier League games when Eriksen has started on the left or in central midfield and he is the one bright spots in what has been a really dull campaign.

It is down to who wants it most Fulham or Spurs. Everton have some tricky games coming up with Manure at Goodison on Sunday, Southampton away and Citeh at Goodison which is perhaps slightly tougher than the Gooners run in and we all know how a 6 point lead can soon evaporate, in fact Spurs are magic at making points disappear!

The Gooners have a dress rehearsal for the FA Cup this weekend with Hull and I would love to see Stevie B turn them over at the KC and at Wembley. The best we can now do is 72 points and that does not like enough now to get 5th so we might as well end the season as we started it and get some points and not let anymore in.

Fulham will be the latest in the long line of bottom clubs that suddenly look like Real Madrid when we're the opposition. Can't wait. Hopefully I'll get an Easter Egg in time for the game. To help me through it. I have no idea how I'll be feeling at this time (14.18) tomorrow.
jerkinmahjurgen
This can't be happening. Thread broked already! Man On done it with his aggression...
jerkinmahjurgen
I think it will be a draw and it will show us once again how poor we are. The mentality at the club I think was we have a easy run in after the March fixtures and if we are in with a chance of top four after March we can do it with our run in, but once again last week showed us we are not even up to getting maximum points in our so called easy run it. As the saying goes, don't count your chickens before they are hatched. I do believe everyone thought our run in was going to bring maximum points, I thought myself we ought to be getting maximum points but this is Spurs with no direction, no plan and no one in charge who knows what they are doing. So draw and Arsenal to finish fourth and win the FA cup for them to be crowing again come end of season.
BeingIStoBe
I am going to eat comfort food to help me through the game

Fulham are so $hit not even Tim Sherwood could balls this one up
Fanny adams
Interesting article Highgate. It amazes me that so many of us keep saying that Sherwood would be wise to say less and do more but he really just can't help himself. He is actually starting to make Redknapp look like a shrinking violet with the press by comparison. Sherwood really is addicted to the publicity, the sound of his own voice and lives creating a sound bite or two. It looks to me like he's auditioning for a Match Of The Day seat next season.

It's like a Harry Enfield sketch.

I don't like saturday games, we have to get at least Europa Football, then thursday/sunday fit's my schedule better for next season, just enrolled in 3 language classes, Spanish German and Italian, well I don't know who the next manager is so keeping my options open, I've got the dutch covered doing a cooking class with dutch pastry.

Check out this low angle video clip of Bales winner in the Spanish Cup final and his celebration with Modric! This is why all top Spurs players want out of LOSER Levy Fantasy Football Auction House Club. Check out the all white Real Madrid Adidas kit and how Tottenham Hotspur could look if we didn't have rag trade loser ruining THFC! Sure, we cant compete with the mighty Real Madrid, but the Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool level is very possible at a club with such a huge fan base as our, with the right owners! Just look at what Atletico Madrid, Liverpool and Benfica are doing right now, pushing for major honors without the vast wealth of the likes of Man City, Madrid, PSG etc... Never will happen with Levy and ENIC running us! Joe Lewis Out!!! http://www.101greatgoals.com/blog/see-it-from-a-different-angle-pitch-level-clip-of-gareth-bale-wonder-goal-v-barcelona/

Highgatespur-just read that article would love to hear the interview to see if the article is accurate. If it is then Tim is seriously playing a dangerous game. He wins to a certain extent because he will have a pay off a handsome sum of money and I guess a smaller club may give him a go, although I doubt he will do that well without international players.

The biggest problem Tim has is that he has done himself no favours. He hasn't been humble enough imo. To get this opportunity is a life time one and had he been more humble and left the out spoken attitude until after he had proved himself them things may have been different. You cannot say such things to international players in front of the media, or things about the board in public unless you have a CV to show you know what your talking about, to back up your comments, like Mourinho. Tim will dig himself into a grave and his time with us will come to an end if these comments are true. His media interviews have been that of a 'child' at times, unprofessional and nonsense and even the comments that may be true, there is a way to say them and a time and place.

Highgate, Tim Sherwood managing Tottenham. It reminds me of watching Harry Enfield.

Beingistobe, it's that fecking hip.

The most distressing thing about watching Gareth Bale's goal in the Real Madrid uniform is seeing "Fly Emirates" on the front of the uniform. Nooooo oo oo!
Falstaff the Fool
Falstaff, we'll be adorning red letterings on the white shirts ALL the time next year - "Fly Emirates' may not not be that far away - money talks!!!! Unfortunately.
Highgatespur
Thanks for your usual, well written article Ovyeh. Now I look forward (not) to our usual rudderless performance against Fulham. For me, despite the March massacre, the season ended at WBA. What is there to look forward to? Flashes of brilliance to indifferent attitude of others whilst our manager laughs off his inadequacies on the touch line?

Highgate, Hope you have great day and see something worth crowing about. I expect Eriksen and Kane to be well up for it. Hope the team starts concentrating from the off. They need to cut out this huddle thing, as clearly the last few matches have shown, it is meaningless ritual, Perhaps they should utilise that time tightening their boot laces, saying their prayers and getting in to their positions!
Critical_Spur
Come on Critical as much as it disappoints us we have got to look forward... perhaps TS has the best way to deal with it - laugh it off!!!

Every new match day is a new one for me - till the 1st minute it seems these days.... I'm sure we'll win BIG whilst the goners and everloanians lose this weekend.... Ever the hopeful aye ?

Btw I do think the huddle is the ONLY time the team get to talk about tactics and where they are playing!!! LOL

I think tomorrow's post match interview could have some explosives thrown by the man in charge!!!

Hopefully a big win will help the mood!!!
Highgatespur
Jerk, brilliant - there'll be a skit by a comedian soon, it's too good a material to pass by..
Highgatespur
B2B - I'll look if there is an associated video... there must be ... a few write ups on it.

Although some thought I was being unfair to TS I always thought he'd do nothing more than he is doing... there is a thought that he thinks he's too good for the club and also that he's been promised a role in the media, no doubt... but there you go; COYMS!!!!
Highgatespur
Because we are Spurs, there is no such thing as a "predictable result", even against a team who are entrenched in the bottom 3 after 34 games, in any case predictability is boring. We could just as easily slip up and lose this, as turn it on and win it easily.

"There is a joke doing the rounds: if Liverpool had been Tottenham Hotspur last season and finished seventh then Brendan Rodgers would have been sacked and Luis Suarez would have been sold."

Where is the joke? Levy is the joke. On the nail article: http://sport.bt.com/sportfootball/football/daniel-levy-to-blame-for-tottenhams-wasted-season-S11363893924532
ItalianYiddo
I don`t get how that Bale goal was a great goal
Fanny adams
IY , I think a lot of the Spurs fans would have been baying Levy to do the ded as well.... we have to learn as well from this season...
Highgatespur
*ded = deed
Highgatespur
Yes highgate, we are well known for our fickleness, if there was a league for it we would top it every year, but as chairman you need to have some sort of plan. Financially I can see a plan, from a footballing perspective I see shambolics.
ItalianYiddo
We do need to get over this fickleness... I agree with you re Levy but it does seem like he has caught the bug... the reason why AVB went ?
Highgatespur
watching Derby match and very impressed with the game. The commitment work ethic is so much more than our own team. It's worrying that I find a championship game more exciting then my beloved spurs games.
BeingIStoBe
Highegatespur-thanks first link, well not as harsh as the article made out imo. He is just saying the jury is out on Lamela as to whether he will make it because he hasn't seen enough of him due to injury. He has assessed the others. I guess I would just question his choice of words, 'jury out' carry a negative connotation imo and I question whether it is wise to actually say such a thing when the lad has proved to have talent, but in fairness he is saying it in relation to the PL. I think with Tim he says it as it is. I am sure many fans and many other footballing people are thinking the same, will Lamela make it in the PL, the jury is out, but may be Tim needs to be a bit more conscious of the way he says things.

Second link re Bale again not as harsh as the article makes out. Again Tim is just saying as it is and again reiterating what many people think. I guess like the article says, non of it will go down well with Levy and the players, but I am not sure he was having a dig as the article suggests. Interesting though. What I find disconcerning is how he really believes he knows whether a player is good enough. He has assessed the players other than Lamela and he knows who is and who isn't. I just think there is a bit of arrogance there, like I said before, not very humble. I mean what has he done and achieved to think he has such insights. Wasn't Tim who stopped us signing saurez, I believe he was the scout that said he wasn't up to it. Hmm just wish he wouldn't be so full of himself, or is it just that he truly believes in himself and knows the job. This seasn he can say the players were not his signings, but I think he is out of his depth and hasn't much of a clue as to whether our players are good enough. Time will tell. If a new manager gets the best out of these players that will make Tim look silly, or if Tim managers another club with his own players then we will see how he fairs.
BeingIStoBe
B2B - if a boss says he hasn't judged the player yet - is that true of all at the club - is he the only one ? There was hardly anything positive about Lamela's efforts, the recovery work he has doing , the conversations he has had with him, how he's looking forward to being fully fit and the mention of the price - whats that about ?
Why mention Luka ? If Modders and bale were at the club he wouldn't be anywhere near the position he's in!
I just don't trust the guy... he didn't need to say all that did he... I'll stand corrected if I'm wrong..
Highgatespur
Why has the official club website got a feature picture of Fulham celebrating? - only Spurs can do that - what a fiasco!!!
Highgatespur
Highgatespur-I don't think your wrong. I think Tims comments have become negative and arrogant. I think from when he was first appointed to now his language has changed. Like you say, no mention of anything positive. He could had said, he is doing well in his rehabilitation. He is coming along with his english. We are looking forward to seeing what he can do next season. He was negative and as I said his interviews are negative now days. Funny how he said in Jan that he was happy with the players he didn't want any signings now he is saying the opposite. He has dug his own grave imo anyway and I think it will be water of a ducks back to the players now. They will be waiting in anticipation as to who the new manager will be and imo I think Baldini will bring in someone who he thinks will be able to help Lamela, lets face it he has invested a lot in him. I think if Baldini selects the next manager it may well work as he will bring in someone who sings from the same sheet and who he thinks will get the best out of the players he helped sign. As for Lamela I do think he will be a success and I am hoping he isn't taking much notice of what Tim is saying. I would like to hear from him or someone else what is status is, whether he is training or still injured, I don't trust Tim either.
BeingIStoBe
B2B That is one of the most positive posting on what has been IMO an unmitigated disaster of a season. I do feel apathy towards what the club has to say about anything these days but the team members to be treated like this and supposedly the players showing little interest is just beyond me. The sooner THAT announcement is made the better - in fact it can't come any quicker! But come 1245 tomorrow I'll be yelling "Come On You Spurs" in the hope of a great win... hopefully this lasts longer than 22 secs like it did last week. LOL, Once again great post!
Highgatespur
TBH, don't see why Tim had to mention Bale and Modric anyway. He may have been asked a question about Bale's performance, but he didn't have to elaborate and suggest how we may have done with him in the team. If Bale was still here, AVB would still be the boss and we would not have splashed out in the transfer window. All conjecture after the ship has sailed. Then why refer to Modric in the same context, considering he left 2 seasons ago. Yes, may as well bring Berbatov and Carrick in to the fold!

Highgate, I wouldn't be surprised if you see fair few empty seats tomorrow. I bet stubhub are not even taking our match tickets on their books. Just look at this forum. The kick off is less than 15 hours away and just 70 posts?!! The interest has been knocked out of the fans. Like you said, the sooner we get the new man (needs to be before season tickets renewal) the better. Waiting to announce anything until the end of the world cup will spell disaster, squad and pre-season wise.

Whoever takes over as Spurs manager will inherit a fantastic squad. The £108 million spent has not been a waste..yet. Most of the players bought have experienced the PL which will help them next season. If the manager decides to move some of them on, we will lose out but there will be enough cash to help the problem areas with our squad like LB, RB, CB and another forward. Let's hope we play well today..the fans deserve some entertainment. COYS!
HOD_GOD_10
Roma interested in paulinho 26m should do it.

Rather Paulinho stayed. We've wasted him at Spurs. Why spend millions on players and don't play them in their favoured positions and formations? COYS!
HOD_GOD_10
notnats, How Ironic it would be if your correct and Roma do want Paulinho for 26m. They would get a world class player who would excel in Serie A, whilst Roma sold us Lamela for a fortune who is so very unhappy playing for Tottenham Hotspur in the Premiership. But I'm sure LOSER Levy would grab the cash in a heart beat, because he would see it in his own penny pinching warped way that somehow he would be getting his money back for Lamela... Agree with HOD_GOD_10 that Paulinho should stay. Fantastic player if used correctly! But he's gone, because he is listed as lot number 2 in LOSER Levy's World Cup Enic Auction House summer Sales!!! Joe Lewis Out!!!
Pele10
Thanks for the effort OVM but I have come to the stage where I'm REALLY dreading the game. I just don't know how bad we'll be. That's what it's like for me nowadays... never how good it may be. I am totally disgusted with the antics of our so-called manager. Always blaming somebody else, reminds me a bit of HR. Too much opening of mouth before engaging brain as well. Be glad when he's gone same as I was with HR. Although at least he has us playing decent football. I can only imagine how the players must feel going to work every day knowing he'll be spouting off. No wonder there are so many "injuries." People often call in sick when they're down. Makes them feel listless and can't be bothered. Now where have I seen that lately? ....oh yes on the pitch every first half. I wonder why??? Maybe TS HAS SOME THING TO DO WITH IT!!! COYBS GATS

Madaboutspurs
i for one am getting pretty sick of tim's constant bemoaning of the squad he inherited. we have a fantastic squad and considerably better than liverpool's. yes we lack the star player right now, but the fact remains that we have been able to beat pool to players in the last couple of seasons, and they certainly do not have the depth of squad we have. what they do have is a manager capable of getting the best out of his players and not a manager who constantly throws the whole team under the bus. i think it is pretty disgraceful to be making these sweeping disparaging remarks. you are out of your depth tim, don't imagine for one second that an experienced manager could not be getting these players playing fantastic football. no one can tell me that players like vertonghen, sandro, paulinho, eriksen are bad players. even soldado, lamela, chadli are capable of so much more. Tim's idea of management is like Harry's - if all you can do it say get out there and do your thing, then you need world class players for it to work. there is enough talent in our players provided we actually have a manager who can add value. no-one would have given rodgers a hope in hell of winning the title with the players he has, I never heard him slag anyone of them off when they were mid-table though.
Guernman
Guernman, I agree with the majority of your post on DIM, but the reason we don't have a coach of the quality of Rodgers is because he turned us down because he knew he would not be given the freedom or the time to express himself at Spurs. He stated this publicly. ItalianYiddo is 100% correct, had Rodgers finished in 7th place last season at Tottenham, LOSER Levy would have fired him, and sold Suarez too if he was a Spurs player. Dim is only head coach of THFC because of DIM DANNY!!!
Pele10
Guernman, Not fair to compare DIM to Harry! I will never slag off a Spurs coach who took us to the quarter finals of the Champions League... I loved the football he gave us in his last season too, when LOSER Levy fired him after he came forth... We have a DIM Chairman and a scrooge of an owner. ENIC OUT!!!
Pele10
Pele10 Your posts are good until you start bigging up Harry Redknapp.Harry Redknapp was the biggest (unt ever to manage Spurs.
He had Bale,Modric,King,spent around £100 million himself.£50 million on his first january window.
Harry would have bankrupt this club with his stockpiling,that`s what Harry does,he buys his way out of trouble,but it will always catch up with you in the end.

Why would any Spurs fan want any manager like harry redknapp who belittled the club you support at every opportunity?
Fanny adams
And there we were thinking Eriksen was the cornerstone of our next great side.... who would fail with the battle cry of TS - non elf you are good enough.... I wonder what the ever decreasing numbers of think of this ?
Highgatespur
Wasn't Dim one of the coaches gullit said watched Suarez and expressed doubts saying he 'wasn't too sure'....the same Suarez that's now a world class player...? Doesn't matter how good the players are when the idiot in charge can't tell them apart or can't recognise talent. Just hope he has zero input into player sales or departures before he goes...

Oh to have Bale charging down the left flank forcing his way into the box and poking the ball past the advancing keeper.

Pele10 mate you might have got me wrong there I never said Roma were interested in buying paulinho for 26m. I said roma were interested in paulinho and that 26m should do it. I was just thinking about the 26m they touched us for lamela. Id be happy take half of that for pauinho.
notnats
ghulam...In a way I have to agree with your view about some fans maybe believing we are better than perhaps we actually are. I still personally feel that the problem lies with the deadwood that has been at the club far too long. Too many mediocre players, playing way too many games.

Whilst Tim may have reservations about the talent in his squad, I do feel it wrong to criticise basically stating that apart from 3, the rest are considered much of muchness. Is it not his job to improve this?, surely the clue is in his job title, coach if I recall.
,br>Yes, we IMO could lose one out of Paulinho or Dembele, very similar, Dawson, highline?. Something Tim could drop back, he's the gaffer. I get his honesty, but there is a right and wrong way to create a positive response. Tim just seems to be laying blame at the feet of others. I'm all for the "We're in this together camp." No finger pointing, no excuses.

Let's be honest here, how many positive things have we heard Tim come out and say in defence of his players??. He seems all too hung up on excusing himself from blame. No problem if he feels the team is unbalanced, says as much, or that he sees this season as a transitional one for the new signings and believes they have the talent to evolve into the types we yearn. He could say all this, say it in the media, I'd not bat an eyelid, but let's do it with positive spin instead of underhand digs. So not needed, so un-professional, un-motivational, and damn right embarrassing.

how is it that we have put ourselves in a position where players like sandro are being alienated, while kids like bentaleb make the bench before him. how exactly will sandro be feeling just a few weeks before the world cup in his home country. and we complain when our key players want out? it's ******** disgraceful

MAN ON!..You Beauty!. Here I was sat thinking about what dodgy stream I would have to endure this afternoon. I thought Kick Off was 3.00 p.m. Only when you put the squads up did I get an inclination that it must be earlier. One quick scour with the T.V remote, lo and behold, BT sport, which I receive. Excellent!!. First half, quick shopping trip, pick the missus up, watch the recorded second half. Nearly went out for a few instead today as opposed to the dodgy streams I watch at times. Hope to be glad that I didn't. Cheers mate!....COYS!!.

Feel for sandro I just hope he stays around for next season. sherwoods lack of interest and disregard for holding MFs and players like sandro have cost us on and off the field this year. anyway game time. this fixture last year was the last game I was able to get to. very disappointing on the day so hoping for a much better result and give the faithful something to cheer about.

No Sandro in Sight

Fryers starting (happy with that) BUT ROSE STILL ON THE PITCH!!! and he's replacing Chiriches, Roamia's National Captain! really don't get his thinking! I firmly believe he is deliberately unsettling our first teamers now!

It might look like a 442 but im guessing eriksen will play as a inside left forward and chadli will probably play more in eriksens starting position effectively making it a 433, will be interesting to see how we alternate.

Sandro wasn't looking that great in his last games..... So?
MAN ON!
Half the reason Chiriches was awful was Rose twice failing to do his job in the 1st few minutes. That's not to say he has an excuse in losing his composure but Rose is by far the weaker link and the one that should have been replaced today. I just cannot understand how some players have one poor game and get dropped whilst Rose has a nightmare pretty much every game and keeps his spot. It's an absolute joke just like not including Sandro even on the bench when we haven't got a single player in the matchday squad who's even moderately competent at protecting the back four, something that seemed particularly obvious only last week.

MAN ON!
So Eriksen is a left winger and chadli is a central midfielder now? Well I guess when the bulk of the squad are much of a muchess it doesn't matter where you play them! Ade is a world class so can play where every he feels like? What this game needs is a striker who will stay in the box if only we had someone like that at the club. If we're going to play a rookie CB (who is a LB) then give the lad a chance by playing a DMF in front of them, especially when Kaboul's form has been so poor. Have to go with Spurious's assessment Not really sure what 13 is on about "this aint TS team"??? who else picked them then??? I know he's hard to recognise in a suit but that is TS.
Slurms McKenzie
Ade has had no service, no though balls lol how can people criticize, your only as good as your service when your a striker !! Chadli is not a cm, come on Tim sort it out !! Bring Townsend on and put him on the left and put Eric in the hole !!
Hotspurhelpline01273
Townsend on the left for some pace
zombie-greavsie
Criminal NO Sandro. Tim must be deliberately doing this. Same midfield as last week who were average at best. This disregard to DM's by Tim is him trying to prove a point, problem is it's not working Tim.

I really am confused to the line up. Chadli over Dembele and Sandro. Rose again, rather Fryers. Will he drop Ade who has been poor this and last game, I bet he will not, can't upset Ade. Kane deserves his place, Ade doesn't may be it is time to give Soldado ago and take Ade off, then I would say Tim is being fair. He drops out of form players, so drop Ade Tim and lets us believe you. Fact Tim hasn't a clue. Lets just hope some of our players stay next season, the way things are going some will not.

Hotspur Help line, I've seen great crosses into the box the problem is Ade is either on the half way line or side line, with three four players in front of him. He is being criticised because he is all over the place. Manager is at fault for letting him wander aimlessly around the pitch, but then you can't give out to Ade or he'll start to sulk again.

Has Sandro been playing well? No worse than some others I suppose...

Farcical situation at Spurs where the "head coach" is gone after the next four games and is selecting his teams like a spoiled child almost looks like he is trying to force Levy into firing him early. Surely this can't be aloud to continue to the end of the season. He is now undermining Baldini and the players in the press. His nonsensical team selections are doing huge damage to our squad and league positions. A diabolical end to a Season that started with such hope.

Good result, moderate performance, played one half again. Christian Eriksen is certainly establishing himself as the class act at Spurs, we just simply must set our stool out to keep him. Interestingly it is reported that Sandro denies being injured, he just isn't picked for the squad. If this is true it is total madness, he is amongst the best DMFers in the PL, and if we want him to throw his toys out, and leave in the summer, we are going the right way about it. Man On, we should be able to take games like this, and indeed the following last 3 as nailed on 3 pointers, but unfortunately this is no longer the case. We really must stop giving teams 45 minutes start, before we decide to join in.
Frank
Frank.. I agree with you...
MAN ON!
Ghulam >>> Maybe TS should give his half time talk before the game starts! Good win. Good second half. Good team selection for this game (can’t argue with results). TS is obviously expecting an extended 3 year contract (apologies to those of you now contemplating suicide).
Geofspurs
A solid workmanlike performance against a poor Fulham side. However we can only try to beat what's in front of us and we managed that today. Nothing special but it didn't need to be. Still strange selections by Sherwood but we muddled through today. A good 3 points. If we get 9 points from our remaining 3 games we should be in Europe. That will be a decent end to the season but Sherwood still needs to go though. He is dividing the club and causing friction in the squad which will not make us challengers on any level. COYS and thank you and goodbye Tim.

Sandro is reported to have tweeted a response, "Lol lol lol..." Timmy hoists self on own petard. DL really cocked it up when he named Timmy to manage our team. Ship him off to St. Helena on the next boat. Never want to see this git anywhere associated with our club. As far as I can see the only thing he's done right was to resurrect Adebayor.

Why should Sandro keep quiet? After all, it's been Timmy who's gone public in dissing the players. All bets are off with this amateur manager at the helm. Timmy is exemplifying the Peter Principle: Rising to the level of his incompetence.

Just for a bit of balance, Sandro has been rubbish this season and doesn't deserve to be in the team.Having said all that, the comments he made about Sandro are just bad management. And to be fair to TS he has given youngsters such as Kane & Bentaleb their chance so he does deserve some credit. He can't seem to win on this site - everything he does or says gets criticised. He still has to go in the summer though. The only way I would want Van Gaal is if he brings in an assistant who can take over in a couple of years (De Boer for me). We need a manager who can sort the current squad out but we also need some plan for the future.
DoncasterHotspur
B2B, by that assessment I bet Sandro has a further £5m to his value!!! What a delightful man to have as boss!!!
Highgatespur

123spurs
As I see it Tim is being more and more out spoken about players and this to means either he knows he is going or he knows he is staying.

If he is going and he is doing it because he is trying to make a point then he needs to go asap before players want out and he causes more upset. If he is staying, then why not announce it officially, even extend his contract, just get this sorted.

The manager has the right to think what thinks about players and say whatever he wants but imo it should mostly be behind closed doors. I have said it before, what has Tim achieved and done for he to think he can 'spot' talent, say someone is not good enough. Didn't he say that about saurez. This has to stop, we need some transparency. The board need to sort this out asap. Tim is quite clearly border line causing mayhem within the club, and players are quite clearly becoming mischievous. Something is going on that we don't know about. Sandro loves Tottenham he has never caused problems, his twitter comments are out of character, he is clearly making it known to us fans things are not right, and the way Tim is talking these days it is obvious something is going on.

I am sorry, a win means nothing to me. The shambles in midfield and we have the likes of Sandro, Dembele and even though I have never rated Townsend, his confidence is shot. The back line who ever plays are awful. Soldado, again, showed his confidence is at a all time low, I mean if a 28m player cannot put the ball on target from a free kick, an opportunity to show us he is worth keeping, then something is seriously wrong.

What has happened to the magnificant Bentaleb then. His he now saying Chadli is better. In all honesty, I don't think Tim knows what he is talking about, he makes it up as he goes along. Another HR in front of the camera
BeingIStoBe
No true supporter of THFC can be happy to see our manager a kerfuffler on a weekly basis. Does anyone think that Timmy has the respect of the players? As a supporter, I'm embarrassed by the situation. The man had the right position when he was shepherding the development squad, but has been elevated to the level of maximal incompetence as manager of our beloved club. One cannot both support THFC and support Timmy as manager. How many on this thread would support Timmy returning next season in the same managerial position? I will lose all hope if that happens, like a man entering the lower levels of the Inferno. A supporter should not support the tricks played by the devil, and surely Timmy as manager is a diabolic trick motivated by Gooners and the like.

It's good if he is not pampering to the big egos but there is also a time and place and a way to conduct yourself. How many international players have been upset by his approach. I still say the MAIN problem is shooting your mouth of in public when you have WON nothing, ACHIEVED nothing. His behaviour is egositic, this is the problem. Egos fighting egos. A manager needs to restrain from egoic behviour to be able to handle players big egos. Tim clearly cannot. It is a art of managing. Players will not tolerate such behaviour from a manger unless they have respect for him. That respect comes from a FULL CV of honors, Tim doesn't have that. He needed to be more humble, gain the respect of the players and when he has achieved and won things then he will get away with this behaviour of putting players down.

Doncaster, Kane started to get his chances last year didn't he ? Good run - good show of promise ... looking forward to him being a squad player rather than a saviour... After playing Bentaleb so consistently when going was touch why isn't he featuring these days... the last two games were ideal to play him I thought.... here's hoping both Nabil and Harry feature sternly over the next few seasons!!

welll coops ITK thread .............LVG is our manager next season so why the mention of other managers..............maybe its a load of bolloxs

TE - who ?
Highgatespur
I cannot wait for the season to be over and this mess sorted out.
BeingIStoBe
I have seen this approach all to often in my life. Someone who is out of there depth playing the hard ball. Making out they 'know' and thrusting their authority around. I am the boss attitude. I keep saying it why does Tim believe he has the skills, knowledge and experience to make such judgements about players. He is out of his depth, which is not at all suprising. This next season manager needs sorting asap. Only three weeks to go

123spurs is no a roll! Lol! Hypocrite! I don't recall that many posts after the all of the recent results! Were you banned from your PC during all the recent dismal performances? One win and you are like a dog with two dicks!. Nothing has changed to make peeps change their minds on the manager situation. The season has been a wreck...end of! Just picking up scraps and the odd player playing for respect. Let's see how a new manager can reinvigorate this trodden-on squad! You can crow as much as you like, Tim's a gonner and deservedly so. Since you are betting man, why don't you bet on him to land another PL job?!

Timmy is a conjuring of macumba escura. He thus cannot bring glad tidings to our land and our family. For the future of our clan, bring in a benzedeiro to counter this maldade.


Ok, I know this overstates the case, but we still could use a benzedeiro to bring blessings and good tidings in this man's wake.

@ BeingIStoBe, who do you want the spurs manager to be next season, name and shame this person? lets see you answere this Q right now
123spurs
Highgatespur-that is what is really is concerning, how Tim just comes in playing the high all mighty and he has nothing to back it up. A humble person would show respect and gain respect, this 'I'm the boss, and I know' is embarassing. It's like a teenager with no experience going into his first job and telling the managers he knows best, and going around calling everyone else who has worked there for years they are rubbish.

"LOL, Pompous or what, Foooool," wrote Thats Entertainment.


Given the two alternatives with which you present me, TE, I'll go with "or what." Pomposity suggests that I'm taking myself too seriously, and clearly I'm not doing that. Indeed, I'm not taking myself seriously at all. Thus, I'm a self designated fool and former knobhead. Just trying to live up to my name(s), and to make some points simultaneously. Chill, or be chilled.

So our keeper is MOTM again! how many teams has that happened for as often as us this season???

I'm feeling Ade has had his contract negotiations and we aint paying him more than we are now… he has definitely slowed down and is in a sulk mood! should have been subbed at HT and given Robbie a proper run out with Kane!..

No Beast is a disgrace! especially after he tweeted an hor before kick off he is fit!!

Fryers gifted a goal, because he hasn't played in that position for us, and his position was covering rose AGAIN!! Vlad should have played CD, Fryers INSTEAD of Rose! we are still in turmoil. we are disregarding our full internationals for what? no Dembele, no Sandro, No Vlad, No Robbie (tip 87 minutes, again).
If Lewis was playing we would have got beaten. why is he on loan again??

Fulhams Defence was dire, all 3 goals showed that! Please someone at WHL, take Tim away in a white van now, and lets get some form of sense to what is going on for the last THREE games!!

Tim is now saying Sandro may or may not have been fit, or may just not be good enough for his squad!!! OUT NOW!!
Thats it from me for the next week…. off to get any chocolate eggs for the kids that are left on the shelves! just hoping Pool win the league, Hull win the cup, Chelsea get nothing and Tim is GONE! all I want in the next 4 weeks!
Dublin Hotspur
So Tim is slated for not playing out of form players? I'm still confused...
MAN ON!
123, you seem to post a lot when Bentaleb is on the bench…. are you nabil?? Defender of Tim? funny how nabil has stopped playing since the leak about Tim getting the hoof came out!

Being is to be, and let be be finale of seem. For next season's manager, bring in the Emperor of Ice Cream. You can look it up. Let me do it for you:


That sheet on which she embroidered fantails once, and spread it so as to cover her face, if her horny feet protrude, they come to show how cold she is, and dumb."


This season started as a fantasy as we brought in 7 new talents at the cost of some 100 million pounds. We fantasized CL. But, be was finale of seem, the fantasy was revealed as fantasy, and the dead cold body of the fantasy has been laid out for all to see like the bony protrusions at a wake. Bring in a roller of cigars and recognize that the only emperor is the Emperor of Ice Cream.


OK OK, I though having been called pompous, I'd go in all the way. But there is a poetic point to be made: Timmy has revealed to us all that we were living a fantasy, and in all of its pathos, we are left with kerfuffle.

Falstaff the Fool
He dropped Nabil after a couple of bad performances Dublin..... Good or bad decision?
MAN ON!
The fact that Sherwood is opinionated and outspoken isn't a problem for me. Like many on here I think those are good qualities for a manager to have. The problem I have is that he can't keep his mouth shut in public. Regarding Sandro Sherwood is right not pick him if he thinks others are performing better. Sandro shouldn't have taken it public but when he did Sherwood should have had the intelligence and class to shut it off by not commenting. All he had to say to show he has what it takes to manage a quality squad is 'I've spoken with Sandro and he knows why I made this choice.' End of comment. That is what a top manager would do. Unfortunately Sherwood likes to make everything a public dick measuring contest. That is not very edifying for a club with our tradition or aspirations. He's proved he can't rein it in so he leaves the club with little choice.

Hope the players now push on to get us in to Europe!!! #getthegitoutofourclub!!!!!!!

Here's an Easter wish: May we all laugh at ourselves for the fools that we be. In the end, we should be ashamed to be members of the human race, thinking that we are in some central place in time and space. In the mean time, let's find a real manager for our club. It's well past time for this.
Falstaff the Fool
SpuriousLife. I think that's a very fair way to put it.
MAN ON!
Well...yet another strange match. happy with the 3 points, bit confused with Chadli in CM once more. Not as a result of Sandro's omission, but more the fact that this is not his forte. Think Bentelab or Dembele would have been a better call.

Actually thought Rose had one of his better games. Not immense, but just kind of reined in his whole mistake making. Ade, not today, same as last week. Kane, well done, well pleased for him, credit to Sherwood for allowing him to showcase his talent. Long way to go, great start however.

Still concerned with our lack of in game flexibilty at times. Fulham were dominating the MF in the first half, but we did nothing to counter this. As stated maybe one wrong selection in MF. Anyway 3 to go, chance to reach 72 points once more.

I now don't care what goes on on the pitch this season! what matters more is TS public humiliation of our players to the media!

Sandro, Pauli, Lamela, Robbie, Vlad, Verts, Holtby, Chadli, Capoue,Walker, Siggi …… maybe some more I have missed!

safe guys seem to be
Rose, Lennon, Kane, Bentaleb, Naughton, Toensend, Ade, Lloris,

I know I have missed some on both sides of the scale, and rate all on the "slagged off by Tim" side, and 2 or 3 from the "pet" side! but what manager, EVER, has publicly barraged his own players, so many of them, to the media, ever..let alone in one season! OUT YOU HEADCASE!

Cider spurs
Cider, it was subdued.... felt like a interim Pleat game! good win... good for Kane etc but a lot of questions.... there's pattern developing here for the post match shenanigans... we have scored 11 goals in the last 3 home games ... we're not even celebrating ... shows how far our chins are down on your chest... announcement please Levy and shift across.
Highgatespur
Ah thanks Cider - didn't know there was one... Parks probably said "you ok?"
Highgatespur
I would like Tim to come out and explain why he said in January he was happy with the squad of players he didn't want any more and now it seems he is saying most of them are lazy and not good enough. Make your mind up time. Sandro made that comment I bet in response to him being called lazy in training and hence not even in the squad. If Tim drops out of form players then Ade should be dropped, so should Chadli, Rose, Kaboul - I bet he will not drop Ade.

Worry for the club is just how much Tim's interviews are becoming more and more negative. It's time to get this club sorted, but can Levy do that, he has created this and is he not fond of our Tim.

I don't like what is happening at the club, it's becoming a circus, an embarassment, unprofessional, a nit like HR days in front of the media.
BeingIStoBe
B2B wasn't it also said that he knew the players inside out ? And now ?
Highgatespur
Very pleased with Kanes breakthrough, I'm putting all my chips in and saying he'll be a regular for England within 2 years, the progress he's making is exceptional. If he bags a few more he could even be a surprise for this years world cup. You have to admire Eriksen, with all the changes within the club and the apparent unrest the guy gets on with what he does best putting goals on a plate, Pauliniho and Kaboul had so little to do that I'm awarding Eriksen both goals. Lloris as well first class, this summer should be about trimming the fat and 2-3 choice signings mainly LB and CB.

Highgate...Rose and Parks, there was a spat by all accounts. Some are suggesting as a result of Tony telling Rose to gou back and thank the fans. No definitive answers as of yet, maybe MOTD will clarify later. LOVE YOU SANDRO!.

This is how the curse of ENIC works... Almost do well enough to win things and play in the CL, so you keep believing you can win things and play in the CL, then sell the best players at the club that almost got you to win things and play in the CL, then buy lot's of new players who you believe could help you win things and play in the CL, then sell them when you just fail to win things and play in the CL, and the cycle repeats and repeats itself until West Ham get bought out when they move into the OS by super rich owners who really, REALLY want to win things and play in the CL, and then THFC become London's 4th ranked club, and then ENIC sell up, and walk away with a half billion or so profit, and then leave THFC with the worst trophy per season percentage of any THFC owners in the clubs history... ENIC CURSE COMPLETE!!!

Highgatespur
Come on Sunderland. Hold on!

coops. Similar minds?? Read my previous post!! Lol
Dublin Hotspur
Highgatespur-Exactly.

What makes it worse imo with Tim is that he is speaking as though he knows it all, Mourinho may get away with it, he has the credentials to prove he knows what he is talking about, but Tim - what has he achieved. I'm disgusted at the way this club is at the moment. Forty three years a fan and I can honestly say, I have never cringed as much as I do now.

However, Tim is not the only culprit. Levy has to take some blame, he hired Tim and has sacked so many players and sold our best players.

It's not good enough and unless we get the next appointment right and start to rebuild a good reputation our club will decline rapidly. Clubs do not survive in these conditions. There is too much crap going on and too much unprofessionalism and no stability. Time for Levy to get it right before it is too late and for Tim to go completely away from the club now.
BeingIStoBe
Sunderland beat Mourinho! Guess we won't see Blues trolls this week. lol.
Falstaff the Fool
2-1 Sunderland - couldn't happen to a nicer club/ man/players!!! So happy for you Chelski!!!
Highgatespur

Falstaff the Fool
On the game today, we were ok, nothing special other than Eriksen and Lloris. Had Fulham had Holtby they may have faired better, he has done well for them. We ought to be winning these games but as it is said there are no easy PL games.

I think we have a decent squad but an unbalanced squad and yet again we are seeing players playing out of position. Fryers at CB, Chadli midfield, Eriksen LW. Next season the balance of the squad needs sorting but to get the balance we need to know how we are going to play, plan A B C but I expect and accept a couple or so players will have to go to get the balance right. We also need strengthening in certain areas, mainly defence.

I am happy to see Kane do well, he has come on, and I never rated him. Whether he can continue this at this level I don't know, but credit to him, he is taking his chances and opportunity.

All I would say to the players is, don't lose your head, the season will be over soon and see what happens next season before you decide your future.
BeingIStoBe
I didn't ant to know the Sunderland score wanted to watch MOTD. Still glad for Sunderland, I think Poyet has done well. He has got them playing and they were unlucky in a few games. I am hoping he keeps them up. Chelsea it could all be over for them now, I hope Liverpool do win it. I want Gerrard to get PL winners medal for his commitment and loyalty to his club and for Rodgers, to show Levy that it can be done with patience and some common sense.

okay.....
MAN ON!
ManOn! seriously, he may be gone but he keeps deriding the club by saying things against the defences players - defend less players ? because they can't respond as they'' get fined ands we will look at them differently...you can appreciate it. That's what got to me about TS. For instance, during the week, did he say one word positive about the club to its players or inform the fans in anyway? The answer is no! Yet his claims so far has been that he knows he club well, knows the players well and knows what we as fans know want - this was said in December /january... Some of us are getting frustrated... As you know I have disassociated him from the team just to enable me to watch them... how ridiculous is that?! We all care for the club in different ways but in no less way! Hopefully you will understand my response as it was honestly put!

We ought to be talking about the win today and the positives from last week but within 2 mins of getting in the car after the game what do I hear ?!! Beyond the pale for me.

123spurs
We won. And that DOES give a finger to the sabotage theory. Paulinho was everywhere, chasing down, putting pressure on, reducing time and space, forcing errors. A good game for him. Lennon was just as busy. I love the way he busts a gut to do this. Fulham are beat. Didn't put any pressure on at times. Made it a bit easy for us, but you can't take a win away from Tim. Shouldn't Tim take the credit for getting that performance from Paulinho? Do we wanna be where City, Liverpool are? Be 1st or 2nd, play our football like them? When those teams are flying it's high energy, high tempo, everyone pressing, everyone attacking in waves. The full-backs, the supposed dm... like Lennon and Pauli today. Good stuff. Kane, 3 in 3 at a level of course way above his. So who gets the credit there? lol. Give any Premier League manager at any club our defence today and they'll have their work cut out, huh? Naughton, Rose, Kaboul - who hasn't played all year, and Fryers. Credit where it's due. Well done to the lads today - much better to watch - ready upon the first whistle. And well done to Tim, who's earned his money this week.
jerkinmahjurgen
feel for you 123, eloquently put!
Dublin Hotspur
Good result today. Great execution from Eriksen and some good keeping from Lloris. Apart from that and Kane's goal not much to say about today's game. 123 I think it was you ask why has to have the talk about TS well as usual all the post match is taken over with TS egotistic rants. A young, inexperienced manager who thinks he knows everything and wants to make sure he's in the news and the press have their headlines. Lot to learn and I would prefer he did that elsewhere and, in the mean time, let somebody else do the talking to the press. I amazed DL hasn't insisted on this. Maybe it's just giving him another reason to sack him come the end of the season. Surely he has to, IMHO he is bringing the club into disrepute with his persistent verbal attacking of players in public..

I had a very interesting day at the lane today - in the 125 club with my son, lots of legends and sat in directors box. However, the most interesting aspect was a 45 minute pre match q & a with Steffan Freund. Such a good guy and very knowledgeable and balanced. The gist of his replies was - avb too defensive, Tim too offensive, Tim does not rate Chiriches and dropped today, Danny rose was in because of injuries, focus on opening the game better was a big theme today. Hugo was phenomenal today, kaboom great in second half too.

The other thing Freund told us (only 18 in 125 club) was that the press reports on Lamela were rubbish this week. He has started running after a fracture in his back and in the coming weeks may hopefully start to join in training. However, having been out for so long, he is not close to a return, a faint hope of maybe last game of season. Not sure there is any great conspiracy with Lamela - injured, light training, so not close to a return. Understandable.

To me Tim is unpopular, to you, a demi God, no? therein lies my theory, like the beauty of a woman, in the eye of the beholder! our "woman" in my opinion of course, is a destructive psychopath, intent on ruining our marriage with European football and future success…. in my opinion! lol
Dublin Hotspur
I will say TS was a lot more dignified in his after match interview than the highly experienced Mourinho. Jose was not a happy man. ;-) As for the touchline antics of his assistant.......
MAN ON!
Man On - in total agreement! Hopefully TS won't replicate Mourinho in he next 3 weeks!
Highgatespur
Dublin, that conjures up images that I rather not have!!! LOL
Highgatespur
4th or 5th are still there for the taking. Man U beat Everton, Hull beat Arsenal... Why not? If it happens I don't care what is said by anyone......
MAN ON!
Roger, far from being slated you are echoing a lot of us in having that opinion... COYMS!!!
Highgatespur
man On! welcome!!!
Highgatespur
RC / AKA G.R Nuts, great post mate! bring freund in! going by what winkle said, he's cool as a cucumber and proper honest, not needy media honest! like Tim!

Agreed man on, Moan rinho was / is a moody stroppy kid who gives out every time it doesn't go his way, he is as they say a blaming bit5h!!
Dublin Hotspur
It's gonna be some end to the season... Top and bottom of the league.
MAN ON!
Gus can save them yet... Hope he does. Looks more and more like the Pool will sneak it. I wonder what Norwich can do?
MAN ON!
Highgatespur. Hi.
MAN ON!
Man On more than twists to come I'm certain!!! with all of them!! No one really deserves to go down on their showing of having sprit... A Villa perhaps
Highgatespur
Man On! i was responding to your comment re 4th /5th - I was saying welcome to my hope - I will be waiting the fat lady to sing "Oh when the Spurs go marching in...."
Highgatespur
Freund was very impressive today .... Would be more so with some authority IMO.
Windlespur
It would be some comeback from the dead if Gus can pull it off. I do like the fella.... Still 6 or 7 fighting for survival...
MAN ON!
This buffoon is doing his best to alienate most of the squad. I was of the opinion that Sandro and Eriksen were certs to stay. Llorris, Paulinho, Capoue and Verts likely to go. Is he trying to add Sandro to the list?
ItalianYiddo
Highgatespur. Ive always kept the faith.... Like a fool....
MAN ON!
FA went missing after HT
123spurs
123, He was busy preparing a slap up, candlelit meal for Aaron...
MAN ON!
shhhhhhhh thats a suprise for hes assist
123spurs
I think I want Norwich A Villa and probably Cardiff down .... I don't like Gus but sunderland is such a long trip... change Cardiff for the maccams!!!
Highgatespur
IY - no worries they will all stay - ole danny boy has already told them what's happening....
Highgatespur
right out in wing by the window
123spurs
IY we won today so what has sandro to moan about, if TS stays he needs to shut up an work hard an get into the team like paulinho has done, even though he was pants again today,if TS goes in summer you have nothing to worry about, you can tweet all you want you beast
123spurs
sandro is a great player but once he gets yellow, hes a dead man walking
123spurs
TS should ban phones on match days to increase hes dislikesness.
123spurs
Roger, surely Sandro could say he was following the lead of his boss by going to the media...
Highgatespur
None of us have any idea what happens in training. We don’t know who is in form and who is not. We don’t know who is putting in the effort and who is not. We don’t know has a good attitude and who does not. We don’t know!! We don’t know!! Why do some people keep speculating about something they cannot possibly have any factual information about. The more the speculation, the further from the truth you travel! THFC is what it is. TS picked the team based on what he has seen at training .... and his team won! I would not have picked the same team but, so what? I’m happy with this result! Next game is Stoke. 3-0 Spurs. COYS
Geofspurs
Geof, admire your attitude but I foolishly care about the club, too much some would say, to let these things go on without questioning or wondering, as to what is happening at the club I have so much beyond money !!! Thoughts on Rose's incidents?
Highgatespur
Roger, this has led me to think that same thing's happening to Jan and sandro said not me.... Sandro's tweet was about himself being fit not making fun of the club! Yes he was wrong but as I said previously - example set by the boss!!! Roger, who knows?
Highgatespur
Windle- What an awesome experience for you and your boy....totally jelly!......Whatever else you care to share from Stephan's comments will be I'm sure appreciated?...Any sense of future doings?
Brown-Baker-Henry
geof ur talking to much sense,ppl on here not all bit oan casue they hate him persoanly, hense when we win the hater are not around, ( we can read hem like a book) an fact is we win 400 posts, we lose 700 posts, can wait for the new manager, COYS
123spurs
not stellar but a win just the same......3 points isnt it??/....coys
rovinella62spurs
Useful three points but as usual all the attention is on tim and his comments about a senior player. maybe sandro shouldn't have tweeted in the first place but the disappointment and frustration have obviously boiled over. the guys been available for weeks he's not going to get match it sitting in the stands. did tim actually say he's not good enough to get into the team. tim says he doesn't know his best team and they are all a bit the same but at least sandro knows his position and the job he's put out there to do. Sherwood has become an easy touch for media fodder with these constant idiotic comments no wonder players like sandro are tweeting lol lol lol. why wouldn't 'they its becoming a joke. even worse im starting to wonder that in his bitterness and belief that the players have cost him his job that he's now doing everything he can to destabilise the senior player. next year when he's out of a job he can say look it wasnt me there still *****.

Happy Easter one and all. :-)
Geofspurs
Easter is not really the same without 3 games over the four days. Some of you would remember those times; a game on Friday, a game on Saturday, and a game on Monday. I used to watch Spurs play 3 games in 4 days ... heaven! And most players played in all three games!! How times have changed.
Geofspurs
Hope Pool take out the title, for Gerrard's sake. He is everything you would want your player to be, including, loyal! Great role model for the game.
Geofspurs
Agreed, Geoff...Gerrard is Liverpool through and through....brilliant the way he's reinvented himself at the back...wonder who's idea that was...hope Hodgson plays him there.....always had a soft spot for the way 'Pool played in their glory days and this lot reminds me of them.....hope they get it.
Brown-Baker-Henry
Happy Easter Geof and everyone else too. Great video clip you put the link up for Highgate. That's what I'm talking about. Eriksen has the intelligence and class to answer a tricky question by shutting it down and answer it by not answering it all. Sherwood needs to learn to do the same. Unfortunately either he doesn't want to, is unable to or is auditioning for a role as a football pundit next season. Whatever the reason, rightly or wrongly, it is not something a PL manager can do. It makes them too publicly divisive and confrontational.
SpuriousLife
I hope Liverpool win for my friend Patch who sadly passed away last year. A true Liverpool fan, and decent fella to boot. Add to this the 25 year Hillsborough tragedy anniversary, and it seems more than fitting that Liverpool should win the title. RIP.
Cider spurs
Happy Easter Geof. Same to Modric? COYS!
HOD_GOD_10
Hoddle did a similar thing at Swindon and Chelsea to what Gerrard is doing at Liverpool. The so called 'lazy' Glenn, played himself as a sweeper. He did quite well in that role.... I agree, it will be fitting for Gerrard and Liverpool to win the PL.
MAN ON!
The point is that Sherwood isn't whinging about dirty laundry being aired in public. He says Sandro hasn't said anything he shouldn't have. Hasn't lied about anything. Sherwood, true to form, doesn't seem to mind all and sundry knowing everything. That's not the chosen environment of a saboteur or shifty character. He holds his head up. Never shirking. But enough 'bigging him up'. We'll lose if I do.

Interview from the special sarcastic one, how can anyone wish them good luck against Ath Madrid in the CL, apart from chav fans.
spu 4 life
The rags have us in for Grace Jones aka fanny welbeck, seeing the header, that was enough, not to open the story.
spu 4 life
Pi$$ed right off!...Placed last in the Easter bonnet parade. Took me ages getting it of the neighbour's car.
Cider spurs
I do like the way our players are being treated like adults, and being made to stand up like men. No silly restrictions on social media or tomato ketchup. If you're not fit you can't play, can you? If you're not in form, and we have cover, you won't play. Tweet what you want. If you have to do your learning in the wake of the tweet... It does promote thinking regarding making the right decision. And it is true to say Sandro has dropped a couple of clangers recently and Sherwood is sticking by his principles of neglecting reputation from the criteria. If we had a better balanced, or at least a fitter squad, we'd be seeing more of this, I'm sure. Promoting a competitive squad culture. Well he gets a gold star this week from me. I dread to think of the impact it will have on some fans if he's still here in August! I'm sure Levy is looking at every single possibility available.
jerkinmahjurgen
G'd morning all. Going against the CW on this forum... I don't want L'pool to win anything, how could I want a club to succeed who went went out of their way to back a racist player and went against all anti racism work. Went even to produce a tshirt to commemorate the 'event (v Norwich) and keep the racist player w/o ever admitting it ... nah not for me ... een the 'saint' Stevie G wore that tshirt and backed the racist.... nah not for me.... let alone his two biting incidents as well as those theatrics.... can't forget and join the hypocritical actions.... They'll probably win and will not be joining in with the celebrations...
Highgatespur
Cider ... never mind!!!
Highgatespur
Spu.... all bulls**t till we have that man in place....
Highgatespur
Geof, certainly remember those games over the Easter - especially in the 1974 -77 seasons.... was quite good ... they'll be talking about the Christmas fixtures like this in the not too distant future...
Highgatespur
HOD ... LOL
Geofspurs
Spu... btw hope not - we don't have a good record of using the Manure's avast off very well do we ??
Highgatespur
Scousers underway already!
MAN ON!
too easy...
MAN ON!
Avast off?
MAN ON!
