Thread: So, we're behind Spurs and the sky has not fallen

  1. #1

    So, we're behind Spurs and the sky has not fallen

    I really, really, really find it hard to dislike this Spurs team. They are very competitive despite having spent a fraction of the money we have, they have a young, energetic manager who seems tactically astute and has them playing a style of football that I'd love to watch every week and with the exception of Danny Rose I can't think of a single player there that makes me want to punch him in the face. And I loved watching Yanwama and Dembele controlling midfield with a very physical style of play. We used to have two midfielders like that.

    In fact, when the first one went in last night, I yelled out with joy. And I watched the entire match as I found it interesting.

    So who's up for supporting Spurs as their second team then?

    Would you put your money on us finishing above them?

    England will win the World Cup before Spurs win the league, imo. So I'll support *them* second.

    And let us not forget how edifying it must be to feel the real atmosphere at WHL. I find their version of "Oh When the Spurs" quite stunning. A pwopah old school football chant; primal, simple and uplifting. The way they draw the vowel sounds out would be impossible at the ArabBowl - none of the cancer deserving cvnts there would get it and would quickly descend back into "s'null s'null s'null".

    It did occur to me during last night's game that their fans are far, far, far better than ours. Certainly on the 'passion' and song originality front.

    Has that always been the case?

    Wanyama seems to have recovered his ability to bundle opponents off the ball without getting penalised. He lost it for a while at Saints, who got pissed off with him being a card-magnet, I gather.

    tbh though I thought Chelsea played the better football overall, if you ignore the Delhi-Al-E shaped hole in their defence.

    Nothing wrong with a physical approach A.

    Dembele was superb from what I saw.

    They are a decent team, no point in denying it. Every bit as good as us but we have those little elements of stardust which they lack.

    I believe this is partly down to not winning the league for 55 years, flirting with relegation in recent times and having a massive chip on the shoulder. Breeds character, you see. Not to mention a spot of violent hatred.
