Spurs 2 Man City 0

Not bad eh warspite. I know it's difficult to be positive as a Spurs fan, but try. You said the big teams would beat us...City is pretty big.

A draw with Chelsea and win against Arsenal and that's great results.

I saw the match yesterday against City.
If Spurs play always as a team, the way they have played yesterday, everything is possible.
It was a real strong and humble (with no prima donas) team that I saw on the pitch.
Besides Spurs have the best player in the world (IMO), Kane.
So, who knows...

Lol

I said:

Top four? Well it would be good if played a LOT better than we did against Burnley and a WHOLE LOT better than we did against Brighton and a MASSIVE LOT better than against Antwerp..... Unless we improve then when we play proper teams like City and Chelsea in the coming weeks, we will be ripped apart.

I say again - and all the football pundits say the same - against Everton it is difficult to exaggerate how bad we were - and how bad Hojbjerg was in particular. Alderweirald didn't get back in the team for a while, Winks and Alli are in the cold, Davies has lost his place at left back.

Yes - we were shocking. Subsequent performances where we scrapped out a result were better - but hardly brilliant.

The game against Man City can be looked at in two ways:

- if we had lost (and margins are fine in football) then the performance would have been criticised heavily. At home to Man City and they dominated possession - and we were resorting to pumping long balls upfield for much of the time (can you imagine Liverpool playing like that?... but then Liverpool didn't beat City - although they were away)

- as we won, it was a Jose masterclass. Sit and defend and beat them on the counter. Well it worked at Inter Milan so maybe it can work for Spurs.

As fans, we all deal with things in the way we find most comfortable. Personally, the idea that, playing like that, we are possible champions, is absurd. I would give anything to be wrong- and for Spurs to actually win the title in my lifetime..... but I'm not holding my breath

The news media report that Diego Armando Maradona died today. A cardiac arrest it would seem.

https://www.reuters.com/article/soccer-argentina-maradona-death-idUSKBN2852JR

The pinnacle of "genius and disorderliness" in sports. They are already talking about him as "the Greatest Soccer Player Ever". Sorry, but I reserve that title for Pelč. Still sad news, though

RIP Maradona. A tortured footballing genius. Capable of doing things on the pitch mere mortals could only dream about.

As for the Pele vs Maradona argument. Pele wins this for the same reason as Lewis wins Hamilton vs Schumacher. When you have two sporting colossus from different periods its impossible to ever know who was the better. But when one of the options plays the game cleanly and fairly, and the other has moments of less than sporting behaviour, then the former deserves the benefit of any doubt.

I agree. Maradona had an immense talent, but he wasted a big portion of it with his often irresponsible behaviour (drugs, illegitimate children, shady dealings with the camorra when with Naples...) A pity. Pelč was consistently great and a role-model outside the pitch too.

I remember when, after "coming clean" from cocaine (which is a form of doping) and a 15 months ban, Maradona was immediately caught using doping again at the 1994 World Cup. All my friends were sympathetic with him (and I mean all). I, alone, wasn't. Maybe I was too harsh, but I felt that Maradona, by using doping, had betrayed the faith that the team and the coach had given to him. He later stated that it had been "involuntary doping" and he didn't knew that the energiser he drank contained dopant substances. Maybe, but I felt that, by then, he had lost his credibility.

Nothing of this, of course, denies that he was a legend on the pitch. But, sadly, he consistently sabotaged himself with his irresponsible behaviour - a loss for him in the first place, but, in a final analysis, for everybody too.

Well I said if we beat City and draw with Chelsea and then beat Arsenal that would be excellent.

So far we have beat City and draw with Chelsea! Just Arsenal to go, looks like maybe I should have put a bet on! Last two results have been excellent. I'm still hoping for a four finish and just maybe some silver ware!

Hand of god....no thanks. Never forgave him for that. He was a fraud and cheater. His talent therefore can't be judged.

Oh Warspite Holberg has been superb in recent matches, more than made up for Everton. As for Jose he seems to have mixed Spurs way with his it seems to be working. Let's be honest Spurs way could be lovely to watch but sadly it hasn't worked for the last 50 odd years, that's a fact. So if we have to change even for abit to win the league then it's worth it. I m no fan of Jose but if results keep coming like they have been I can't complain.

As for Everton look at Liverpool against Villa or Man Utd against us. All teams have had very bad games not just Spurs plus that was first match of the season. We have never been so high up the league this stage of the season. If we were as bad as you say we'd be near bottom of the league not top or it shows how bad all the others are.

My prediction was what I hoped against hope for, I was expecting Chelsea to beat us 2-0 or even more. Chelsea we always seem to lose against. This season it's been two draws one we won on penalties, as a Spurs fan I can't expect more than that against the blue sh@te!

For the first time in recent years we have some depth to the team. Defence has well tightened up and up front we have the talent to pull teams apart. Though like Warspite I can't ever see us winning the league but hope just once at least they do it in my lifetime I do think for the first time in a while there is a tiny glimmer of a chance and way more than a glimmer for top four finish.

2-0 win against City
0-0 draw against Chelsea
2-0 win against Arsenal

Damn I should have put a bet on when I predicted win, draw, win. We did it!

Thoughts now Warspite? Feeling any better?

How am I feeling? I'm a Spurs fan of circa 50 years so I feel as I always feel. I am just waiting for things to go wrong.

Seven points from nine against those three? Fantastic. But we are Spurs so.....

......get ready for 2-0 loss to Crystal Palace followed by a right royal thumping from Liverpool.

I hate football....

A worthless season is over. A long winter is coming. And then a new season begins. And we are lousy in the first third of the season. Every year it is the same. We can not play football when the season begins. A long winter just to see the team lose the ability to play football.

I hate football.

(This season was so short that it was more or less over before the team remembered how to play football)

My beloved Viking FK Stavanger, currently sixth in the Norwegian Eliteserien with two matches to go. Started the season terrible but improved a lot during the summer.
We haven’t won the league since 1991 despite being one of the bigger clubs in Norway. The bigger teams have struggled financially for several years so the standard of play have dropped quite a bit. The league was currently won by Bodř/Glimt by a large margin and they also had a solid performance in the Europa League against Milan at San Siro (2-3)

Viking Fk is probably more known outside Norway for knocking out Chelsea in the UEFA Cup in 2002. Current Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson also managed Viking from 2004-06.

I hope we improve next season and hopefully we can compete for the title.

I do understand, I am a Spurs fan too. I'm waiting for the collapse. We really shouldn't lose against CP but I can't see us beating Liverpool..a darw at best.

To bring into play that old footballing cliche, let's take one game at a time.

What can Spurs do, at home, vs Antwerp tonight? They didn't turn up for the away game and were little better against LASK so..... Spurs need a win, the Belgians just a draw in order to finish top and get (in theory) one of the 'lesser' teams in the first knockout stage.

....so... one point from nine and a potential banana skin to come against Stoke.

Let's hope that any nonsense talk about the potential of this team is now put to bed following this week's results.

USMNT and Juventus star Weston McKennie's house burgled during game

USMNT midfielder Weston McKennie had his house burgled during Juventus' Coppa Italia quarterfinal victory over SPAL on Wednesday, the Italian side confirmed to ESPN.

The thieves were able to leave with branded shoes and clothes, as well as several other objects of value.

Given the timing, the initial outlook is the robbery was planned with the knowledge McKennie would be playing for Juventus at that time. He alerted the authorities the following day when he returned home and forensic police have searched the rooms for any potential DNA.

I have heard that some people will actually have someone in the home to prevent such things.

I also read where some men dressed up like they were members of a wedding party who then packed up all of the gifts and left. They were not members of either the bride's nor the groom's family nor were they friends of either side.

Well technically I wasn't. I don't think the total dross, our team serves up, can be mistaken for football.

Best bit? If Arsenal beat out of form Wolves tonight - in other words when - then they go above us. You need a certain masochistic streak to support our mob don't you?
