... 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.

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.

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.

r|t|c, Thursday, 6 May 2010 12:59 (nine years ago) link

vs martin jol in a one-off, vital match?

bring it on. we'll loan them jenas.

Usually that's the sort of thing players say when they're trying to attract Arsenal's interest but hey, we're a Champions League club now.

Matt DC, Friday, 16 July 2010 13:27 (nine years ago) link

well, in fairness it's only two weeks since we got not much more that a disdainful sniff from him, but we've gone and got our hair done in a metaphorical sense.

eh i dunno i'm not really a grease fanatic tbh. but i don't think so. or did they both oh i don't know

Both sing the chorus but it's Danny doing all the chasing.

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

is it too much to ask that the sponsor's blue matches the rest of the kit?

Is it just his shorts that come with the knee bandage or do they all get them?

No you don't understand, Ledley's injury has got so bad he's got a job in a leisure centre.

Matt DC, Friday, 16 July 2010 14:38 (nine years ago) link

Or maybe as a holiday rep.

Matt DC, Friday, 16 July 2010 14:38 (nine years ago) link

shorts mightn't be helping but is top half don't fit on his bottom alf proper

Everytime I hit 'submit post' the internet gets dumber (darraghmac), Friday, 16 July 2010 14:41 (nine years ago) link

Actually that shirt might be quite cool if it didn't clash massively with the sponsor. Any news on who our ground-breaking, innovative second sponsorship deal is with?

Matt DC, Friday, 16 July 2010 14:48 (nine years ago) link

i like the home kit, more than the other 2 anyway

seeing my first spurs match tonight in NJ. got seats 5 rows behind their bench, what should i yell to Arry and the lads?

mizzell, Thursday, 22 July 2010 19:52 (nine years ago) link

guys is there a 2010-11 premiership thread yet or

be told and get high on coconut (gbx), Thursday, 22 July 2010 19:59 (nine years ago) link

think the thread title has to go to committee first, so it should be ready in January.

also premiership thread traditionally doesn't start till... the premiership is anywhere close. still a month and a few hundred million away. And that's just what man city do in july.

what should i yell to Arry and the lads?

He's got a twitch
He's got a twitch
Harry Redknapp, he's got a twitch
How he got it we don't know
How he got it we won't care
All we know is he has got a twitch.

James Mitchell, Thursday, 22 July 2010 22:51 (nine years ago) link

couldn't see the bench as it turned out.
spurs started 4 right backs as their back four (and didn't even play kaboul):
naughton walker corluka hutton
hutton was clearly the worst player on the pitch.

mizzell, Friday, 23 July 2010 04:59 (nine years ago) link

I think he may have picked up the twitch in the 1990 car crash.

Those new strips are dire.

the pinefox, Friday, 23 July 2010 07:14 (nine years ago) link

Yes it was a car crash alright. Definitely a car crash.

Great chant tho lol lol.

I see what this is (Local Garda), Friday, 23 July 2010 07:27 (nine years ago) link

hutton was clearly the worst player on the pitch.

this has never not been true of him in a spurs shirt.

Jan looked chasing after Adama like when as kids my dad would jump in for a few minutes

certainly that's not sustainable, at lb

Number None, Friday, 20 December 2019 14:20 (two months ago) link

agreed that jan at lb is not going to do the job that our lb has been asked to do the past five years

whether we keep asking either of our full backs to carry so much water remains to be seen tho

Also, Bergwijn probably in for youse (deems and I agreed a fee on whatsapp earlier). He's leaving a club in disarray though, with mgmt not having ok'd him doing a medical at Spurs.

Le Bateau Ivre, Monday, 27 January 2020 10:08 (three weeks ago) link

thought psv manager admitted sulkily that hed told him go ahead

sounded like it mightve been a bit pass-agg mind

Catherine, Boner of JP Sweeney & Co (darraghmac), Monday, 27 January 2020 10:13 (three weeks ago) link

I was surprised he is only 22, he seems to have been around for ages. Would probably prefer Malen but he’d likely cost 3x as much.

ShariVari, Monday, 27 January 2020 10:17 (three weeks ago) link

The (interim) manager sulkily did, big boss man didn't tho. We're in a shambles rn and though not the best of looks I honestly can't blame the lad for fleeing the scene.

Le Bateau Ivre, Monday, 27 January 2020 10:17 (three weeks ago) link

Malen a different player (more of a striker), he'd cost you more though yeah.

Le Bateau Ivre, Monday, 27 January 2020 10:18 (three weeks ago) link

A striker is what we need tbh, though Piatek still a possibility.

ShariVari, Monday, 27 January 2020 10:19 (three weeks ago) link

need two from the top, two from the middle and two small ones pls carol

Catherine, Boner of JP Sweeney & Co (darraghmac), Monday, 27 January 2020 10:23 (three weeks ago) link

Malen isn't available anyway, he'll likely miss the Euros because of a knee injury, he's out for the season.

Le Bateau Ivre, Monday, 27 January 2020 10:24 (three weeks ago) link

well, yeah?

backup for kane

Catherine, Boner of JP Sweeney & Co (darraghmac), Monday, 27 January 2020 10:26 (three weeks ago) link

Striker and holding midfielder desperately needed at the moment but it's very hard to imagine any really good CF wanting to come to Spurs given Kane's obvious pre-eminence.

Matt DC, Monday, 27 January 2020 11:21 (three weeks ago) link

foyth, kwp, rose, wanyama all available, lamela an option too if rumours are to be believed

romantic in me says the first two have players in them if a full season loan could beat sloppiness out of them but idk do players improve anymore or do they just work in a system or for a manager or not

Catherine, Boner of JP Sweeney & Co (darraghmac), Monday, 27 January 2020 22:57 (three weeks ago) link

That’s great news.

ShariVari, Tuesday, 28 January 2020 13:35 (three weeks ago) link

That's excellent, Lo Celso has looked really good in his last few games.

Now if we could sign someone who isn't an attacking midfielder it would be very nice.

Matt DC, Tuesday, 28 January 2020 14:07 (three weeks ago) link

striker, dm, fullbacks in that order of priority, but hes an excellent signing and is at least an alternative in a few positions

Catherine, Boner of JP Sweeney & Co (darraghmac), Tuesday, 28 January 2020 15:29 (three weeks ago) link

Agreed with that, although Son can pay CF and I'm curious as to how Dele would manage there. We don't have anyone who can play DM competently and it shows in our results.

Matt DC, Tuesday, 28 January 2020 15:45 (three weeks ago) link

saw the gk stats today and our two lads rank very highly in terms of save % from both inside and outside the box, which backs up the viewing evidence that we are very very soft indeed to get at, and while dm and fullback positioning are a huge part of it, the complete lack of a player up the field in any way capable of holding onto the ball is definitely a factor.

son wont solve that, lucas doesnt solve that, we dont play in a way that utilises the pace of either at CF

dele is a disaster case recently. three or four moments a game spread out among really careless and lazy decisions. hes also lost a disturbing amount of pace for a 23 year old who did not start out particularly quick.

tactically we could make do with the personnel available in the other positions imo (either we arent, or they arent listening) but there is nobody to do even the non-scoring part of the job up the pitch and its killing us

Catherine, Boner of JP Sweeney & Co (darraghmac), Tuesday, 28 January 2020 16:26 (three weeks ago) link

We are very awkward in transitions these days as well, Lo Celso and Ndombele are both good at playing those passes (as tbf is Winks) but there doesn't seem to be any combination of midfielders that works and they need someone better than Dier behind them who can mop up and let them play.

Dembele was the full package who could do everything but how often does a midfielder like that turn up?

Matt DC, Tuesday, 28 January 2020 16:32 (three weeks ago) link

if there are no players that fulfil your vital role, you need to design another role

tbh im not sure that any of our options *couldnt* be the patrol-and-pass conservative midfielder we need, but we seem to keep asking them to also be the one to break through lines, track the runs from central that son, lucas and dele dont (ie all of them) and cover both full backs at once

somebody, somewhere is doing not very much not very efficiently, and yep dembele was a genius one-off but eric dier can still do three or four things well, as can winks, if we allow that nobody is going to do it all for us like moussa did once upon a time
