Everyone is talking about it…
Kim Jong Un on his sweet train…
Yep, if Arsenal beat Bournemouth and Spurs… and Spurs lose to Chelsea tomorrow… the gap between Arsenal and Spurs will close to 1 point.
I know it hasn’t happened, but the madness that only a few weeks ago we were all looking at Spurs as some sort of rampant elite entity, now we’re wondering if Emery’s team of plodders might actually steal 3rd place from them.
It probably won’t happen, but right now, just knowing Spurs fans aren’t sleeping easy is enough for me.
‘Mate, you cannot laugh at Spurs when they are above us’
The above comment is exactly what is wrong with some elements of the global fanbase.
You can ALWAYS laugh at Spurs. Don’t ever forget that.
I simply adore the press and their childish freak outs every time Poch messes with the ‘RAMPANT SPURS’ narrative.
The shrieks of disdain when the wheels come of his season are so predictable. He’s been there since 2014, presided over some incredible players, and he’s still not won a trophy or sustained a title challenge.
‘HE DOESN’T EVEN NEED A TROPHY YOU FU*KING TWITTER PEASANTS’ saved, to every elite journo’s drafts.
I empathise with the unhealthy obsession, he’s a great coach, but there does come a point, when a man who is 47 in week ‘perhaps’ has to go out there and prove his mettle with a trophy. Even a little shit one.
As Monchi said, you can’t rock a ‘I HAVE BEEN FISCALLY PRUDENT AND THE YOUNG LADS WERE LOVEABLE’ as your career byline.
Or maybe you can?
Firstly we need to beat Bournemouth at home. They’ve lost 3 of their last 6, taking a 3-0 spanking from Liverpool the other week. They don’t travel well. They’re Wayne Rooney mooching around the Basilica because the wife wants a bit of culture. All he wants is a deck chair, a box of 20 Marlboro Reds, and a can of warm Carling. Yep, they’ve lost 6 in 6 on their away travels, conceding 18 in the process, chalking up just one goal. This ‘should’ be a walk in the park.
I ‘like’ using this style to denote tip-toe caution with my words.
Again, this match is going to be a lesson in rotation. I’d imagine Emery will rest Sokratis as he’s fresh off an injury, I’m not sure what he’ll do with Rambo and Ozil, but Ramsey is always a sure bet for Spurs, so maybe Ozil will start. Rave-wobi is nursing a bit of an injury, and I suspect he’ll feature at the weekend as well.
The most important thing is fresh legs for Spurs. They are either going to have a walk in the park against Kepa’s Chelsea, or they’re going butt up against a team determined not to let the season go to shit. Worth remembering, the tactics for City were spot on, if they had a striker for the Carling Cup, they’d have taken down City. A little more pragmatism against Spurs could go a very long way, especially after they shit the bed against BURNLEY LOL BOTTLE JOBS PAMPERED BRATS HATE THE NORTH WEAK MINDS.
Abou Diaby officially retired from football at the age of 32 years old. What a name. What an enigma. He put his ankle on the line for the cause and destroyed his career in the process. Still, he made a fucking fortune, set up a foundation, and led a good life. He’s also not dying. Retiring from football healthy, with the rest of your life in front of you is not a cause for sadness.
I remember sitting next to him back in the day. Such pleasant chap. Told me his favoured position was as a #10. He really was a silky player on his day. What could have been…
Right, that’s me done, see you in the comments! x
