Tottenham LIVE: Spurs forum and blog
Following a very successful raid on his former club Southampton last summer in securing the acquisition of our defensive lynchpin Toby Alderweireld, Poch has struck again in the form of midfield enforcer Victor Wanyama for a knock down price.
On face value this looks a great deal at the price mooted and a clever one also in the belief that not only provide the depth in midfield we severely lacked in the closing stages last season in particular but also allow Eric Dier to be deployed as a fourth line centre half negating the need to sign someone to cover in the event...
After another season has closed and I have now re entered the world of reality after my rather re actionary and misguided post match report after the defeat at Newcastle, I thought it was time for my end of season awards ceremony.
Spurs have finished in the highest position for years and with Pochettino now signed up, we can look forward to next season with optimism.
So, here I go with the first award!!!
Goal of the season
Spurs have scored some great goals this season and Harry Kane has been responsible for a fair number of those. His second against...
I’ve made it into the office early. Headphones on, music full blast, head down. I begin to close my incognito windows on Google Chrome.
"Why is life so sh*t?" reads one.
"Does God hate me?" reads another.
"Painless ways to kill yourself," completes this trifecta of depression.
One by one, colleague after colleague enters. Sarah's first. I hate this cow at the best of times, let alone today. I raise my head as slowly as possible; just enough to acknowledge her existence, but not enough to indicate that I'm willing to instigate any sort of meaningful conversation....
Do I start with today's game, or the season as a whole?
Let's get today's game out of the way. It was a pathetic, disgraceful performance. Awful in every sense. From walking out onto the pitch, the players looked like they had already gone on holiday.
Newcastle, already relegated had a partisan crowd behind them and looked hungry to win. The Spurs team looked bored, bored, bored.
My first question ahead of kick off was why Ben Davies was chosen to start ahead of Danny Rose. Rose wasn't injured and Davies is nowhere near as good.
Eriksen looked like he was asleep, Lamela...
Well that was everything this 'New Spurs' were supposed to have sorted out.
1 game, 1 last game! All we needed was a draw, a draw against an already relegated side, a draw that would've seen us finish above the Scum, a draw that would've cemented 2nd.
A Draw was the minimum target.
Que Spursy Spurs!!!!
Out we strolled and even for previous Spurs sides this was Spectacular failure at its Spursiest.
5-1 to a condemned Championship Side, not only that but they had 10 men as well just to ensure that we look even more pathetic to our local rivals and the footballing...
