James Mitchell, Wednesday, 5 May 2010 21:05 (nine years ago) link

them losing in qualification to the random european team schteeeve takes over is gonna be joeks.

i know tax evasion and robot dance and eurgh but of all the spurs teams I can remember, this is def. the one i'm ok w/ being (moderately) successful.

For decades the debate has raged about who, Spurs or Man City, are the biggest bottlers. Now we know.

Matt DC, Wednesday, 5 May 2010 21:29 (nine years ago) link

oh I think that debate has only just started tbh.

tart w/ a heart (a hoy hoy), Wednesday, 5 May 2010 21:34 (nine years ago) link

i thought Arsenal ended that debate a while back

Arsenal are still a big club.

There are two teams in North London.

Other big clubs who finish 4th in England: Everton, Newcastle, Leeds.

Bottlers, Matt? Wasn't it just that we were beaten by the better side last night? I don't think the players choked at all - they gave it a right go, but weren't good enough.

Well done, Spurs.

Daniel Giraffe, Thursday, 6 May 2010 08:18 (nine years ago) link

^ the kind of thing that means I don't hate City, yet

Ismael Klata, Thursday, 6 May 2010 08:22 (nine years ago) link

Bottlers is one of the most overused bits of jargon in football imo but yeah I think Spurs had fourth place for a decent enough chunk of 09-10 for it not to be the issue at hand here

Charged TBH (DJ Mencap), Thursday, 6 May 2010 08:50 (nine years ago) link

"Bottlers" seems tied in to that weird desire to make out like footballers are morally deficient for not being good enough to win matches sometimes.

I guess so many of Spurs' standouts this season being old hands is belated redemption for the weakness of their digestive tracts during Lasagnegate.

MPx4A, Thursday, 6 May 2010 08:57 (nine years ago) link

Don't think the City players choked, but Mancini's tactics were pretty reserved in the second half.

But tbh either team were good value for CL spot this year ahead of Liverpool and boring boring Villa

Yes, and some people accuse footballers of "lacking passion" when they're not up to scratch in a given game (or in general).

Daniel Giraffe, Thursday, 6 May 2010 10:14 (nine years ago) link

Some teams do lack passion. Newcastle last year were, player for player, easily good enough to stay up, they just didn't care enough.

Matt DC, Thursday, 6 May 2010 10:17 (nine years ago) link

Adebayor, for both Man City last night (maybe in other games? I dunno) and whenever I saw him last season for Arsenal.

scrappy dyaoo (darraghmac), Thursday, 6 May 2010 10:18 (nine years ago) link

They looked short of ideas in midfield as well without Ireland. You're not going to get much in the way of incisive passing with De Jong and Barry in there, especially compared to Modric/Huddlestone. There were times when Kolo Toure seemed like their best attacking midfielder.

Matt DC, Thursday, 6 May 2010 10:39 (nine years ago) link

The persistent talk of them selling Ireland just confuses ever more after a performance like that, it's true.

Dunno... the guy did get shot at for playing football. He looked like he was kinda getting back to form before that. 'bottlers' to me are more about the Berbatovs and lol Bordeaux this season, when there is really no excuse why supremely talented top of the table types (lol hungover alliteration) just chuck it in for no reason.

tart w/ a heart (a hoy hoy), Thursday, 6 May 2010 11:19 (nine years ago) link

and yeah newcastle a prime example.

... Arsenal, this year

Football's Flocking Home (Tom D.), Thursday, 6 May 2010 11:21 (nine years ago) link

Well lets hope Spurs follow our achievements in being 1 of 3 teams to qualify for the CL every season for a decade.

tart w/ a heart (a hoy hoy), Thursday, 6 May 2010 11:24 (nine years ago) link

Adebayor hadn't been shot at while playing out his last 6 months in an Arsenal team that badly needed a leader from the front last season.

Maye those guys were actually gunners, ifyagetme.

Berbatov- another example of Ferguson's tactical shortcomings. Players either work or they don't, and if they don't then it's their fault.

Get fourth and multiply (darraghmac), Thursday, 6 May 2010 11:31 (nine years ago) link

wait, that picture holds like a million questions...

tart w/ a heart (a hoy hoy), Thursday, 6 May 2010 11:32 (nine years ago) link

berbatov was supremely talented when Spurs were last as well tbrr

tart w/ a heart (a hoy hoy), Thursday, 6 May 2010 11:32 (nine years ago) link

If Spurs had drawn with Man City and then lost to Burnley, that would have counted as bottling.

Matt DC, Thursday, 6 May 2010 11:33 (nine years ago) link

yep.

if jol had dropped robinson at any stage over 2 years, it wouldn't have been counted as bottling.

not rocket science- when you don't bottle you're not bottling.

beating city, arsenal and chelsea in the last 5 games to seal it is basically anti-jol/bottle stuff.

Get fourth and multiply (darraghmac), Thursday, 6 May 2010 11:47 (nine years ago) link

sam- yeah berbatov was supremely talented when spurs were bottom! don't understand where yer goin with that tbh.

Get fourth and multiply (darraghmac), Thursday, 6 May 2010 11:50 (nine years ago) link

fergie likes his players to huff and puff, berba was never going to fit in. the only successful stroller of the fergie years was Cantona.

tomofthenest, Thursday, 6 May 2010 11:55 (nine years ago) link

i dunno tbh. not really up to thinking today.

tart w/ a heart (a hoy hoy), Thursday, 6 May 2010 12:48 (nine years ago) link

anyone done a list yet of who else might be in the qualifying pot? i vote martin lol reunion with ajax.

The Craig McLachlan & Debbie Gibson version is probably more apt for a not big club.

deemsthelarker (darraghmac), Thursday, 9 May 2019 18:15 (five months ago) link

Almost every major club in Europe is potentially in the market for a new manager. I can see him leaving but a bidding war between Juve, Barca, PSG, Bayern, etc, wouldn’t be the worst way to lose him and there might be a few decent replacements circulating.

ShariVari, Thursday, 9 May 2019 19:32 (five months ago) link

rumours in the Italian press are that Allegri is going to PSG and Conte is going back to Juve

keeping it spurs related, villas-boas to marseille should be fun, especially if balotelli stays.

kinda gutted lfc didn't go for julian brandt and think max kruse would be a good option for spurs can play cf/#10 and is on a free transfer (he is 30 or so tho)

oscar bravo, Wednesday, 5 June 2019 13:36 (four months ago) link

Eriksen has been playing at a level below what he's capable of for most of the season. Might have something to do with him playing 90mins of every game, including the cups, admittedly. Would be tempted to cash in but we can't really play without him and there is a lot to be said for a player who can keep up that kind of workrate without ever getting injured.

Matt DC, Wednesday, 5 June 2019 13:40 (four months ago) link

i think the midfield chemistry changing to allow sissoko to gallop into legend is of a piece with the fading of any consistency of sting eriksen or alli could bring and especially in kanes absence

i thought he would have to, in order to keep poch and to pay back the stadium fiasco and the lack of signings, i think he also knows now that preseason is a must

i just didnt think yknow he would actually change

looks like weve bought ndombele, early, for big bucks

godfellaz (darraghmac), Tuesday, 25 June 2019 22:01 (three months ago) link

65m doesn't buy you what it used to, and it's not that much considering, and a great signing, but yeah i didn't think levi's splash it out either

Uptown VONC (Le Bateau Ivre), Tuesday, 25 June 2019 22:03 (three months ago) link

It would be a very good price in the current market given the competition for him.

Clarke from Leeds for £8.5m would also be interesting if that goes through.
