Ok, so lots of rumours about who is going and who is coming and so forth, well for my money, no one in the current first team should need to go. The boss/ board did his/ their sums for this and next season including the costs of the new stadium. Yes we should, like all teams remove some deadwood, but wholesale changes are not (IMHO) required.
We need a strong finish to the end of a very long season and look forward to European Football again next season.

Now I can imagine there are a few frustrations with our team tonight, especially when they opt to stay on the team bus for the first half! I lay the blame for this defeat firmly at the feet of the manager. Klopp can inspire a Liverpool team no better talented than our squad, to beat City, so why not us? If we are to progress any further in the FA cup and realise 4th place, we need players to perform from the kick-off. If not and you want to play by the minute.

Just donate your wages for your 'non-committed' part of the game to a local North London charity. There are 4 games to go in the league and we need 4 wins, anything less is failure. Did we really put out our first team tonight? COYS.

I’d argue our team is better, but that’s not really the point, you are capable or atleast giving them a game but I was disappointed in how you guys played, you can turn up against any team yet it was like you decided you couldn’t be bothered. I think the team comaraderie isn’t quite there like it is for us at Liverpool, players wanting to leave, Harry Kane really pushing a goal from Eriksen. Then next week you’ll go smash someone and it’ll be The opposite of the performance at city.

YOU have a talented bunch though and when they click, as they usually do, you’re very effective.

Hi guys, I can understand the frustration from today's game against Swansea. We have to find a way to beat teams who want to 'park the bus' in their own half.
We have quality players in the squad and need to employ those in positions that challenge the opposition. Watching other teams that encounter this 'park the bus ' problem, they rely on a lot of movement around the penalty box, working their triangles until an opening appears.
If we were 'stage drunk' after the mid-week success over BD, the coaching staff have their work cut out to keep the players focused.

Problem is Tiffy, what creativity do we have on the bench if Erikson and Ali have a quiet game.

I agree MW, that was a shaky performance but a result nevertheless. We have to make that game in hand count. Plenty of negatives to discuss like the number of times Dier and Dembele gave the ball away and how easy it was to shoulder DA off the ball! Among the positives (apart from the result) was the sound performance by Lloris and the gutsy play by Trippier after being hacked a few times. Not many games left now. COYS.

I agree 68, a win away to West Brom (a ground where we have not been the best) would all but cement Champions League for next year.

Chelsea OR Liverpool could reach a maximum of 75 and 78 points, if either team win all their remaining games, however they play each other so one of them has to drop points, 3 or 2.

We therefore need 75 points (better goal difference) to finish above Chelsea 'IF' they win all their remaining games. or 78/ 79pts (depending on goal difference, currently 6 behind) to finish above Liverpool 'IF' they win all their remaining games.

My prediction is that Liverpool and Chelsea will draw against each other, meaning we require 77pts to finish above Liverpool (6pts from 3 games) and 73pts to finish above Chelsea (2pts from 3 games)

Good Luck to Arsene Wenger, the Arsenal Manager who took them to league titles and FA cups and away from boring, boring football.

Now to more pressing issues, namely one FA Cup fixture of our own, which is a must win. No replays, so let's hope the players can come out of the blocks from the first whistle.
To all those fans making the trip, stay safe and enjoy the day.
COYS. "Spurs are on their way to Wembley. ".

Respect mate.



17 Apr 2018 21:52:33
Well fellow Spurs followers, was this supposed to be a 'dress rehearsal' for Saturday or 'we don't care' about the PL?
From our performance against the League winners and this effort, I do wonder what we are trying to achieve. Manchester United must be laughing all the way to the final. Needless to say, some players performances tonight have surely reinforced the opinion that they should not be around next season. COYS.


1.) 18 Apr 2018 17:20:55
Aurier, Lamela, Sissoko. To name a few.
If Chelsea win tomorrow and we lose the semi. Pressure will be on then.

2.) 18 Apr 2018 22:54:22
Pressures always on boys. have a little trust and belief.

Having read an article recently where Poch said the crowd noise at Pride Park affected the players, let's hope he has been playing Kop songs to the lads in training this week. COYS.


1.) 03 Feb 2018 14:53:19
Pride Park? Wtf. If that's true, imagine playing in Turkey.

2.) 03 Feb 2018 18:28:17
The two most intimidating stadium's I've been to with spurs are milwall and the old Cardiff City, the crowd were right near the touchlines' and very hostile. The other tough ground where the raver used to play was for the dog and gun where there would be a crowd of 30 boys who have been up all Friday night flying their nuts off with pitbulls and Alsatians' right on the touchline, if you done a peter Kay pass on the pitch they would be throwing their cans of lager at you in disgust.

3.) 03 Feb 2018 19:14:13
If we found Pride Park intimidating then we might aswell give up. Anyone know what match Poch was on about because i'm struggling to remember and believe this?

4.) 03 Feb 2018 20:40:48
Agree Ellis the girls in Stringfellows are more intimidating than the crowd at pride park, I think tiffy has made a mistake as Derby haven't been in the premier league since poch has been in England.

5.) 04 Feb 2018 01:45:53
Tiffy, pride park.

We’re all guessing you meant the Newport game. I’m putting that game down to an old fashion FA cup tie. Which we were lucky, Infact real lucky.

We’ll put 4 past them at Wembley. And in all fairness so we should.
The new boy Lucas will play that game and run riot.



28 Jan 2018 10:00:05
Well, like you guys I am glad that debacle at Rodney Parade is over and look forward to a successful replay at Wembley and giving Newport a nice payday.
My one main observation and gripe about our players last night was about their footwear. I didn't know the boot sponsors made slippers and that our lads had agreed to try them out on that rugby pitch (sarc) . Could I suggest that the home team, used to playing in those conditions can opt for a rugby type boot with longer studs than a player bound by contract to wear the shiniest 'slippers' on the day! Well done to Newport.

I agree NES, a clear penalty shout ignored and 4 or more in front of goal opportunities. I know Poch values squad rotation but come on, the prime aim is TO WIN THE GAME. Son is in form so why have him on the bench? I feel Sissoko and a few other players should be given 'the only' pep talk that is relevant "Shape up or ship out". This current level of inconsistency is what will get us middle of the table status if the players do not improve. Dier looked very mediocre last night (I know there were others) but don't you think that once players get an England cap (same with Walker) they think they have made it and there is no need for them to improve or play to a high standard week in week out. Poch needs to re-instill in the players a winning mentality that sees them play with confidence and then play our strongest team on the day.

There are two tactical and one mental issue (I'm sure there are more) I would like to highlight, which in my opinion are giving us problems. Firstly, the lack of width is giving us fewer options out of defence and going forward, making it too easy for the opposition to contain. Secondly, a high percentage of our midfield inter-passing is breaking down, leaving us very vulnerable to counter-attacking. Keeping players, not just designated players but anyone out there on the touch line, means the opposition have to cover, which creates more space down the channels and centrally for exploiting or not. This does not mean that we have to play with the equivalent of old fashioned wingers, just have players out there to play off. As for the inter-passing, this should improve as players in the team get to know each other's movement better, there have been signs of the 'triangles' working, however, this appears to breakdown more times than we would like and needs addressing.
The mental issue, where we seem to be unable to concentrate throughout a game will take a bit more effort to resolve. I agree with the previous posts regarding the lack of a natural leader in the team who can take charge when lapses in concentration happen. The quick second half goal scored by Newcastle is a prime example and whilst we all may lay the blame at the right back, even our 'trusted' International who is currently injured has been caught out of position before!
In closing I would just like to emphasis a prediction of mine from an earlier post. Harry Kane will be an England No.9.
Now back to the training ground. COYS.


{Ed001's Note - the mental issue could be down to fatigue. Poch trains his players much harder than most managers and that often leads to players being tired in the early days of his reign. As they get used to the extra training session that might well resolve itself.}

I thought Remy failed a medical for the Liverpool transfer, if that is true, why would we proceed?
