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) Permalink

oh I think that debate has only just started tbh.

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.

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

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

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) Permalink

"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) Permalink

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) Permalink

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) Permalink

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) Permalink

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) Permalink

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.

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) Permalink

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.

berbatov was supremely talented when Spurs were last as well tbrr

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) Permalink

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.

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.

oscar bravo, Wednesday, 5 June 2019 13:36 (two weeks ago) Permalink

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 (two weeks ago) Permalink
