    If Kane Asks To Leave This Summer......

    How much of an effect of no fans in the ground had? Perhaps some normality may return next season if we are allowed back in the grounds. COYS

    If Kane Asks To Leave This Summer......

    An article in the Independent paper is suggesting Kane will push for a move if we are not playing in the CL. They say Mbappe is wanted by RM and with only 1 year left on his contract, PSG may well sell him this window rather than lose him on a free in 1 year. They say Poch would like Harry as his replacement and could find the £150 million that is the likely price DL wants. They add that PSG are the favourite over the 2 Manchester clubs. It implies that Poch and Harry got on very well and both would be happy if the transfer happened. Rumours about Harry are increasing and may simply be speculation. However, this is one that carries possibilities. I'm leaning more to the possibility of Harry going which saddens me. COYS

    R.I.P. Prince Philip

    The day after he died, the couple apparently had said they were were seeking advice from their doctor about the dangers of flying when so heavily pregnant. My initial thoughts were she is persona non gratis with the Royal family and this was setting up the excuse why she wouldn't be accompanying Harry. It wouldn't surprise me if he Queen has said that no way will Meghan ever be allowed to set foot in any of the Royal residences, and especially this funeral as it is common knowledge Prince Phillip detested her. I think this can't fly excuse was a joint decision between both parties to best get around the problem with minimum media speculation. Comments like the one you have put are probably the usual garbage put out in this day and age. The social media trolls can't or won't be controlled by those who provide the platforms. I think as long as the Queen and Prince Charles are alive, Harry may be allowed back for some family events but only on the understanding it is without Meghan. Once William is King, Harry's days in any Royal Family occasions will be over. COYS

    I My thoughts are the same as yours. We have proved i the past that, even as underdogs, we can win. That said, we don't do it often enough. I think the crux will be who the FBs and CBs will be. He makes some strange choices and they rebound on him, and then he blames the players. Heart says yes and head says unlikely. The best we can hope for is ET and then to take our chances in the penalty shoot out. COYS

    I understand the thought behind that, Crom. However if he is hell bent on leaving, how can you make him play to his best if he is unhappy. That is my concern. COYS

    Roy Keane remarks on Spurs 'softness'...

    It is odd that, even when we have had a reasonable squad, we seem to lack the ability to not let the pressure get to us. Perhaps Spurfect is right and we have had bent players taking a back hander or bent referees supplementing poor wages!! LOL COYS

    The Indispensable Man

    The Indispensable Man (by Saxon White Kessinger) Sometime when you're feeling important; Sometime when your ego 's in bloom; Sometime when you take it for granted, You're the best qualified in the room: Sometime when you feel that your going, Would leave an unfillable hole, Just follow these simple instructions, And see how they humble your soul. Take a bucket and fill it with water, Put your hand in it up to the wrist, Pull it out and the hole that's remaining, Is a measure of how much you'll be missed. You can splash all you wish when you enter, You may stir up the water galore, But stop, and you'll find that in no time, It looks quite the same as before. The moral of this quaint example, Is to do just the best that you can, Be proud of yourself but remember, There's no indispensable man. Please Mr Mourhino, if you can find the time. Take note of the words in this poem, and heed the advice in this rhyme. For Spurs fans you are not so important, For many you're not really great. The time of your going is looming, for me I just cannot wait. The mess you are leaving behind you, is far from all that you said. Your promises lie here in tatters, so sod off Mr Bighead. COYS COYS

    Aguero would be a real asset. That said, for me, it is just pie in the sky wishful thinking along the lines of all those posts over the last few weeks saying we could still finish 4th. Unfortunately , the sad fact is that persuading any half decent players to join us is highly unlikely. We just have to face the truth that next season we are likely to be back to the level we were at when Poch arrived starting from scratch. COYS

    I had my 2nd Jab last week. I have taken a photo copy of the email I received from the NHS saying my test result for Covid was positive. At the bottom I have added a copy of my bus pass to confirm I am the person named, and also a copy of my NHS card recording the dates and serial number of my 2 jabs which also has my name on it. For me that is the same as the "passport" they are talking about. Should an occasion arise in some pubs they are being stricter about letting people in, I wil carry this with me as proof. I'm unbearingly smug these days about having had Covid - it's a bit like wearing my army medals!! LOL COYS

    Can we still consider a top 4 place as realistic?

    On the 16th of February when we were lying 9th, I posted the following:- To get 4th spot all 5 teams directly above them would have to slump while Spurs put a run together to climb over them, and just couldn't see it happening. It produced a a few replies implying negativity and posts suggesting it was better to remain positive while mathematically it was possible. My projections, if I bother to make them are based on statistics. With the way the last 2 games have gone, it seems being pragmatic instead of always looking on the bright side is not necessarily being negative. COYS

    If Kane Asks To Leave This Summer......

    I have read that DL has absolutely no intention of letting Harry go. I have also read it is only to the UK top clubs and he would not sell for less than £150 million to a European club. It raises an interesting point in the case of Harry. He is obviously is worth an enormous amount to buy. So, even if Harry is adamant he wants to go, if no one is prepared to come anywhere near to his worth, he can't leave. Just how is the problem solved. DL is running a business and can't let sentiment allow the club the throw away a fortune by giving him away. Harry will understand this but emotionally may well feel unhappy at missing out on his dream and will struggle to play to his best. But if Harry is forced by circumstances to stay, that adds to the problem. The club is paying out top Tottenham wages for a player possibly no longer delivering and and losing value in the transfer market. Harry is getting older, slipping behind in his scoring targets and perhaps top clubs looking at younger strikers. It is a lose, lose for both parties and I just can't see a compromise solution. I have never been a fan of Mourhino. I know there are different opinions on here as to why this season has fallen apart, but I have always blamed Mourinho. I well never forgive him. Not because he has failed to deliver, but because he has besmirched the good name of THFC and will be leaving behind some almost insoluble problems. COYS

    R.I.P. Prince Philip

    We had Princess Anne visit our unit once in 1981. We had to spend £15,000 to doll up the ladies loo it was painted pink and it had a soft woolen cover on the seat. We were contacted before the day she was due with directions on how to prepare the loo!!! COYS

    Kings of white hart lane ,,,,,,

    A bit unfriendly of you. You know the Irish are a friendly lot and that goes for the animals and birds. You have probably hurt their feelings. It could be said you have ruffled their feathers. COYS

    Predict Our Last 8 Games Of This Season...

    Don't you know any easy questions to ask, Borodin? Apart from Sheff Utd, which should be 3 points, all the other games all could go any way, the way we're are playing. The only consistency with us is inconsistency. Obviously, I missed the Utd game. Of the other 7 I think we will be well short of 21 points. I don't know where the points will come from, but I will go for 3 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses - 11 points. I would love for more, but worry I may have been a bit generous. I just think the team is demoralised and cannot cope with the pressure. COYS
