    RIP Ugo....

    Shocking news, Ugo has unfortunately died, cardiac arrest at 44 years old.

    PL: TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR v Stoke City

    We are , alas, not the 3rd most decorated club in England. Maybe 30 or 40 years ago. But not now. I did mention our great FA cup and European past. But it's just that, past. Hence my analogy to Southampton. We must stop the rot and continually looking at our past (17 years since last FA cup) for meaningfull success.

    PL: TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR v Stoke City

    Good post Tonto. However I did not abuse the club, but I am a likely candidate of self inflicted stress !! Many teams accept mediocrity, they just have lower expectation and staying out of relegation and mid table is the best they can do. Would I feel like this if I were a Southampton supporter ? No, I would be quite happy with the clubs progress and position. But for us that goal is higher, I have just become impatient! Or should I say, more impatient. I don't think we challenged last season, in hindsight, it was simply the others were poor. Most years our finish total of 70 points, wouldn't even get 4th place! We, IMHO, are in danger of becoming a Southampton. The odd bit of success/ trophy in 30 years, final every 10 or so. Simply being the best of the rest is not good enough.

    And winners. They are listed too. Since 1991, 1 win and 1 final, both the least prestigious trophy. Really.. good enough? I think we are suffering mediocrity with a smile! I want more than this (picture me stamping my feet!!)

    I couldn't care less if we played crap football and won the PL! Chelsea stunk the place out under Mourinho on the 1st title. No one cares, much less the record books, the entry doesn't bear an asterisk, * but played crap football. Dynamic football would be great, but wins no more points, so I'll take a win every day and twice on a Sunday. 2008 was our last trophy. 9 years. Way too long IMLTHO. To be honest, if we won the PL and then narrowly avoided relegation I'd be more than bloody happy!! Leicester didn't do a Leeds and try to buy it, it was luck, hard work and shrewd buys. This year the wheels come off and one of the main reason touted for this? Large ££ player contracts,a feeling of contentment due to being PL champions and some discord within squad towards Ranieri. Neophyte, I've waited waited waited !!!! Always jam tomorrow ! I want it now! Too greedy, you bet, ask a Leicester fan.

    PL: TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR v Stoke City

    That is the cause of my discontent. Leicester won the premiership!! They didn't spend a fortune, just some shrewd buys and can do attitude. Man U and City, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Everton all have a mare of a season, and us, the perennial bridesmaid fail to get fucking laid!! Some FA cup winners since 1991 Portsmouth Wigan Some FA cup finalists since 1991 Millwall Middlesborough Aston Villa Cardiff Soton Stoke Hull Palace Some EFL cup winners Birmingham Swansea Some EFL cup finalists Sunderland Cardiff Bradford Aston Villa Wigan Is it too much to ask that we, Tottenham Hotspur, perform better and achieve more? No, we are bigger clubs than all of the above (possibly not Villa), yet they seem to be able to give it a crack. I don't expect us to be challenging every year, but certainly more often. We had a proud european history, which appears to be just that, history. Not too long ago we had the most FA cup wins, now we are pretty low on that list ( I realise this all changed in the PL era and the money rolling in) I am pissed we have made little progress since Martin Jol, was sacked (with no class whatsoever) and we have been pretty much marking time, and 5th place, ever since. Please no one tell me we were 3rd last year, that'll just piss me off even more !! lol

    3 for Kane....come on Poch do the right thing by Janssen. Like Stoke of old, such a dirty team, can see a red for them.

    EL: TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR v KAA Gent

    Sorry, doesn't make sense to me. Why further demoralize and embarrass a player/ asset you have authorised your club to spend £17m on? His job is to get the best out the player, for various reasons, to get a good resale (if it doesn't work out) and to help the team win football matches. Continually giving him the arse end of 'lost' matches is poor management. Kane was used correctly (coming on in good/winning matches) in that precise way by our previous managers, remember Kane coming on in our first win at old trafford? Think it was 88th minute. Janssen is new to league and only 22, from what I've seen he runs his socks off and is actually trying, certainly not a lazy player.

    Great posts. Tottenham Hotspur.........making shit teams look good since 1882. Levy is not the problem, he has sorted this club out from the mess we were in post Scholar and the frugality of Sugar. The current issues lie squarely with the manager. He is simply not good enough. £30m for Sissoko is an absolute joke, this is a Poch heavily pushed signing and he is frankly, awful. His treatment of Janssen has been ridiculous, not hit the ground running, but needs a chance. So Poch gives him 8 minutes when 2 down at Liverpool and 2 minutes when effectively 2 down last night! Way to build confidence, Poch, well done!!! Poch seems totally unable to effect change from the bench and manage a squad. Against Fulham Kane should have been hooked when 2 up, keep him fresh and give Janssen a chance. Outcome...we see a poor Kane tonight and no game ready replacement. How he could defend that dangerous Dele challenge is unbelievable, you can actually see the guys leg bend, extremely lucky his career wasn't ended right there. 14/15 - started very poorly, got better and looked decent, fell off15/16 - started poorly, got better and looked good, fell off16/17 - started poorly, got better and looked good, fell off We need a manager who has seen it, done it and has the silverware to prove it. Nothing less.

    Just a recommendation, Borodin. Kane was /is carrying an injury.

    Poch really doesn't fancy Janssen, 3 up and he gets no play. 2 nil down to Liverpool and he's last sub on at 82 minutes.

    2 nil up, Kane off, Janssen on.
