    I genuinely feel for some of our players, especially people like Harry Kane. His attitude, commitment and positiveness should be an inspiration to some of the other less motivated members of the squad and yet Mourinho is quite prepared to just 'sell everybody down the river' when results don't go our way. This latest outburst of 'same coach, different players' perfectly illustrates the problems within the club. That's not the remark of a respectful manager or one designed to improve team spirit. Whilst he may think (and I do agree with him) that we have players who simply lack the quality required to be a top Premier side you do not actually say as much to the media in order to cover your own arse. Let's look at this in the cold light of day and admit that our squad needs massive improvement, especially defensively. "Bargain" buys like Doherty just don't work and unless the areas of concern are confronted this Summer then we face an exodus next season. Do I think Mourinho is the guy to be included in the discussions of who should leave and which players we bring in ?......No. It's as clear as day who just isn't up to the mark and needs shipping out but the choice of incoming talent needs to be given to a new manager next transfer window. If I were Daniel Levy I would be negotiating Jose's departure now and making plans to bring in someone to replace him as of May 24th 2021.

    How is giving Bale 4 minutes plus stoppage going to get the most out of a team. Moura has been good but today he was poor. Son for a full half first game back? Never. Lamela picked the wrong pass EVERY time! yet we still should have won

    Is Harry Planning To Leave ?

    For Stevie Gerrard, in deciding to stay at Liverpool for the whole of his career, the situation was completely different to Harry's. Stevie already had medals including the CL. Harry loves Spurs and wants to stay but, I'm sure he doesn't want to hang up his boots without any medals. I think he gave Mourhino the chance to prove he could make Spurs a top European club. If this season doesn't provide substantial proof that this is definitely going to happen, I can't see Harry doing a Stevie. Nor believe he should be forced into staying. I wouldn't hold it against Harry if he left. In fact, if this season leaves us out off the CL I wouldn't want to be the one holding him back from his ambitions. COYS

    R.I.P. Prince Philip

    I remember when the queen visited Ireland in 2011,the courier company boss told us to wash our vans and have them sparkling,I turned to one of me mates and said I don’t think the queen of England is going to say to me”alright jay how is going,are you busy,and by the way your van is filthy”

    I saw my fellow Spurs supporter mate at the gym this morning - the first time since December . He is from London and he and his 2 sons were season ticket holders for decades and Spurs run through his blood. He was spitting feathers saying he was ashamed to be a Spurs supporter, has stopped wearing the kit and no longer tells people he is a Spurs supporter. He said if it takes to cheating to win games by getting players sent off it was the last straw. He has always hated Mourhino and thinks he encourages the players to react like Son did. I have to say, I can't really disagree with him. I couldn't believe my eyes watching Son writhing for 3 minutes clearly going for a free kick trying to get a fellow footballer sent off. Then to listen to Mourinho's take on the incident, it left me close to saying, 'sod it' - if this what football has come to, I don't know if I want to keep watching it. It is now rife in every game with players falling over feigning pain and injury for the slightest of contact. Oh Well, sod all I can do about it, but I will never condone it. What with VAR and players constantly cheating, I am not enjoying watching football these days. COYS

    I don’t subscribe to the defence is shit theory. Defending is a collective. There is no unison between midfield and defence. Think it was Micah Richards who said defending isn’t just about men behind the ball. It has to be done constructively and with purpose. Our players are ball watchers and brilliant markers of space. They do not possess the footballing nous to anticipate overlapping opponents or, when pressing an opponent, it has to be done in packs cutting off options for the opponent in possession. To many times yesterday a player went to close an opponent down and was by passed with a simple wall pass. We made Utd look good. Now either that is the manager/coach not doing their job properly and training them accordingly; or it’s the players not having the ability to undertake the instructions. I have a feeling it’s both. Either way we are wank and I fear the future. Can’t stand the thought of 15/16th place again praying for 5or 6 points or so from 4 or 5 games to stay up; after all Klinsman has long since retired so won’t be able to save our skin

    We were 4th for an hour. We are completely unable to keep our foot on the gas when we go a goal up. It's nothing less than embarrassing. No wonder we are called bottlers.

    Why are we finding it so hard to keep this game simple? The passing is aimless and our defence??? The hard way is the Spurs way. Second half has to be better we hope.

    An update on my long Covid situation. The underlying post Covid effects have not fully disappeared. However, I think the light at the end of the tunnel may be returning. For a week or so, I have no longer been getting the extreme fatigue and the chest pains (my major concerns) occur less often and with less intensity. The extreme breathlessness now only comes on if I am going upstairs or uphill on my walks. I still have to be a tad careful when standing up if I have been sitting for a time, as I get slightly dizzy and can be a bit unsteady on my feet for a minute or two until it passes. Also, the Covid rash, as it is called, which spread all over my body, has finally cleared up. It has been a pretty dismal few months since this pneumonia and Covid illnesses got me starting last August. Being in lockdown hasn't helped and there have been many days when I have been fed up to the back teeth. that is totally out of character for me as I normally say, 'get over it and get on with life'. I am either getting old or not as tough as I thought I was. This week has being showing signs of improvement and my spirits are the best they have been for months. Of course, it could all come crashing down. There has been no EPL football so no worries and stress about our next game. Come the Newcastle game and I could be calling 999 again and instructing my solicitor to jointly sue JM and DL. LOL COYS

    Is Harry Planning To Leave ?

    Notice Bale backtracking on Sky today about his original statement in returning to Real ? Now he's saying "That's how it stands at the moment" hinting that things could change...it's all hype and bullshit to keep the media machine happy.

    Bale Going Back To Real...

    A huge shame it has come to this! Bale’s reaction at being substituted in the Arsenal game said it all - he was a player in o/s form but did not receive the ball as the centre midfield as so often for us were unable to get a foothold in the game. Bale was full of confidence, producing magic moments for us and Mourinho takes all that away from him and the team with a ridiculous change which cost us the game imo. He showed no faith in Bale despite mutterings in post game interview that he is managing Bale to get the best from him. Then in one fell swoop he destroys everything! He is not a clever manager and I’d rather see the back of him than Bale.

    My point was the football is the most important thing and success on the pitch also. The failure of Enic to invest in players properly over their term is one of the reasons why we haven't won anything. They borrowed enough money to build the stadium they should have done that to get the right players in place and indeed the managers that we actually needed. But if you look at our players that we've sold we more or less balance the books and there was already prophet sitting there to be spent on players there was rumours around there was 50 m to be spent last January. If they did their best to unload all the Deadwood to build up the funds fair enough? I think Levi was more worried about getting the electric sorted out on the stadium than buying players like Grealish,That's my point someone else should have been dealing with the football side he was too busy dealing with building the stadium not worryying about the team and moral falling to Pieces which it has over the last two seasons. I agree Mourinho was brought in because he thought he was the best of a bunch to solve the problem after poch I sort of fell for it thinking that Mourinho was the answer because of his experience but as most people have pointed out the problem is Mourinho doesn't seem to be a people person and he's ideas seem to be a bit prehistoric
