    Harry Winks

    As a well known supporter of Harry Winks and of the firm belief that he is a solid professional who has spent all his life at Spurs and has finally acquired sufficient skill to claim a place in the squad I believe he will continue to improve to be a future Club Captain and lynch pin of the Club. I have suffered many adverse comments on this forum Lol. in tonight's 2-0 half time loss to Belguim.......Who does the England Manager bring on into the team at Half Time. Harry Winks. Harry Winks. I await comments from my friends and fellow Posters.....You know I am often proved right eventually!!! HARRY WINKS

    I am aware that in recent months I have been almost...a lone voice of support for Jose. Often answering comments from many posters every time I respond to one post. Having what I consider a forthright opinion and not being a "follower" I speak in a direct manner and often don't mean to cause offence and forget to add the Lol. Weeks ago I said I felt like Custer!! Still do. It is not nice to be disliked but I won't change my ways so now is the time to leave the Forum again. It's not worth waking up at 4am and not being able to get back to sleep because of worry ove a football forum. I have had problems with a few individuals on this forum and often have contributed to misunderstanding and even more often I have posted responses to posts to try and encourage a response. Subjects such as Brexit, Covid and many other topical subjects have bitten the dust due to lack of response. One particular poster has baited me for many months and still is!!..with no comments from the Moderators and now I have incurred the displeasure of another 2 or 3 posters then it is time to call it a day. Good luck to Borodin on his hard work in revitalising the forum and his early attempts to set and maintain the standards of the forum I leave knowing for 5 and a half years I have fully contributed to this forum and never intended to cause any individual upset..

    " Levy has got rid of a few Managers far too easily" Pretty much what Posters on this forum are trying to do to Jose. A Marmite Manager who really cannot do anything right. He has achieved much in the short time in charge. Not acknowledged by fans who actually believe we should be challenging for Top honours within 12 months of managing the Club. I hope this is my last words on the subject because as a very wise man said " You can't put brains into a Cocunut". With every loss and draw I am reminded of that....

    I accept your superior knowledge of the subject. However, there has been many a Premiership Manager who has spent Hundreds and Hundreds of Millions of £'s and have not been successful in the Premiership or Europe. With all your knowledge of football why/ how do you feel qualified to dismiss a previously regarded World Class Manager even if you believe it was because of the money available. You are entitled to your opinion but it is arrogant is it not??

    James, You know when you are on the Badminton Court and you have the measure of your opponent your skill and experience just grind them into the dust. Their second wind or coach?? Shouting out instructions to them won't help the skill level of their game. I am sure you would never crumble and not give 100 per cent until the final point. And you surely don't make mistakes!!!!!

    James, Hugo was responsible even if only partly for 2 goals against Liverpool.,Roden's mistake was responsible for Liverpools 3rd. Aurier did concede a blatant stupid penalty against Leicester, Sissoko's lazy heading allowed Vardy to score off Dochertys thigh. These are just 2 games examples of Spurs players at fault for 5 Goals in 2 Games Costing 6 Points. ( Top of the Table??) There are others whose mistakes we accept as part of the game but for Posters to constantly blame Jose for not selecting A or subsituting B is rediculous. We all have opinions and the forum is for us to express them but to believe we have more knowledge or insight than Jose and his coaching team is arrogant and laughable All the above players are regular first team so Jose cannot be criticised for selecting them. If we lose Harry it will be a plausible reason for our failure to reach a Top 4 Slot. Harry is our most influential combined Assists and Goalscorer at Spurs by far. There is not any one player at Spurs that can replace him for the remainder of this season. Bale,Bergwijn,Vicinius,Moura,Dele,Lo Celso are not regular premiership team players but I would not suggest they are top European standard players either.

    Quite correct. The best I could hope for was a Draw. At least after the game I am able to recognise and acknowledge we were beaten by a better team rather than reciting the lame old excuse that it was Jose fault that all these bad things happened. Im not sure if posters don't see the game, understand the game or it doesn't matter because like an opposition politician they can't be honest about what they know to be true... im not trying to curry favour but I would not include you of not speaking your mind because you always do.

    The early Son goal may have brought about a different result. i never envisaged unleashing Bale on anyone...he is proving he is yesterday's man. Shoulders drop, passes go astray etc etc......that's the spursy Spurs we know and love. I doubt we can achieve Cup success against Man City....but anything is possible. Hugo's lack of bravery caused first goal and push out to Arnold resulted in 2nd. Son was invisible 2nd half without his strike partner. How is that Jose's fault. So if next year is a potential title winning squad being squandered....you must expect the current squad to increase greatly to be in that position. James was saving me a seat on his fence... I will ask him to clean it for you. Once again there are a number of posters from the forum criticising Jose who do not specifically highlights other than a dislike of certain players. 10 posters voted pre game...7 for a Win and 3 for a Draw. That is fact. Not one would have the foresight to record a Liverpool Win. Spurs are a Top 6 team. Blaming Jose when Son's goal is correctly chalked off for offside is fact. Whether Allison was in or out of his penalty area and hand balled is conjecture because it wasn't given?? i previously have questioned the football knowledge of Posters on this Forum. Perhaps in future I just need to say..." 10 Voted and not one voted that Liverpool would Win" Nuff said. except Lol".....Leave Jose alone he is in the early stages of a major squad rebuild. Lol

    A good interview. Balanced views even on Roden who was highly praised but whose mistake was mentioned. The 10 of us who voted on this forum before the game (7 For a Win...3 For a Draw) should have been interviewed in depth to see what went wrong Lol. Not 1 person voted for a loss which tells you a lot about the Mindset of supporters. Always amazes me....The team selected looks brilliant and the strongest possible on paper and pre game. Start losing to a better organised or luckier team and the clamour for changes and criticism starts. I have never rated Lamela and I don't think he has ever had a major affect on a game as a substitute (his normal position) but acknowledge he does bring a wild dog sort of enthusiasm to the team which it often needs. You want to....but you can't win them all. If you are a Top 6 Team, you'll be in the Top 6 unless you are lucky enough to sneak a Top 4. At the moment we don't have the squad that Jose would want. It will take time to mould his squad but even then History will remind us we are unlikely to be Premiership Winners and multi Cup winners. Being a Realist I understand in the Premiership in every game, all results are possible (Utd losing to Sheff Utd..who predicted that??). Supporters will have less Angst when they understand this.

    I don't think we were terrible. If I watched the game again I am sure I would see we could have scored 3 or 4 goals, but we didn't and Liverpool were so much better than us. Their fight and desire to get the ball back was so noticeable. This same team could easily play the next game and thrash Brighton and posters on this forum would be singing their praises. Bale came on and done nothing, Winks the goalscorer and previous MOTM came on and done nothing. Supporters have to learn that sometimes you are just outplayed and have to accept it. We weren't unlucky we were second best with Hugo responsible for two goals.

    I've kept away from the forum for a day or two disappointed with comments made.........BUT you can't keep a good man down so to the part time posters who only post at game time...most of you have absolutely no idea of football other than criticising the Manager, criticising the players, criticising individual players and screaming for your individual players who are then critiqued by the other part time posters. To you I say Gather Up Your Skirts, Stop Crying and Recover in the Powder Room..... Spurs were on top for the first 2 minutes. Other than that Liverpool players were 20 per cent more determined and skilful. Facts, Realistic comment. Ndombele was the only Spurs player who worked as hard as Liverpool players. It's in the Spurs DNA, it always has been and this squad is still infected with it. We could get a Top 4 place...but only if our competitors continue to have such disappointing results. The Manager may be responsible for some mistakes but not as bad and consistently as the players. Posters moaning about Mourinio ain't going to improve this squad.

    Its wonderful to see the wind of change blowing across the forum. 3-1,3-2 wins predicted everywhere. I knew Jose would Win the doubters around. Thanks for the offer of a spot on your fence James unfortunately my balance is not as good as it should be. However, the offer of a Top quality Brandy was tempting. If not for this game I will imagine you sat on your fence on your haunches " Bielsa" style in future.

    You and James do realise I intentionally used the words "not clever enough" hence the double Lol. ......Lol.

    My mindset finds it difficult to do , a James, and sit on that fence so I don't normally predict draws......but we are on the up and they are on the down so 2-2 it is. Unless a football variable gives us a strange result.

    Spurs v Wycombe FA Cup 4th round

    Ndombele cost £54 Million. £200,000 a week wage. Had an attitude problem for first 6 months (still paid) Winks. At Spurs since age 6. Cost nothing. £50,000 a week wage. Modern aspiring footballer. England player. Occasional MOTM player for Spurs. Ndombele may be the star but Winks is the up and coming apprentice if not in quality but in professionalism.

    Spurs v Wycombe FA Cup 4th round

    I think you are right. I was prejudiced against him before he arrived. I believe he is our highest paid player £220,000 a week. Shirt sales,performing rights may be worth that but he isn't. I also always thought he would score a few pretty goals and may be the odd match winner that would justify this retrograde signing. He may score the Winner in the Carabao Cup Final and we will all love him but I think we should have given a youngster (academy or purchased) an opportunity. That said he missed a few tonight unluckily so he should play again while he's feeding at the trough!! Still getting the other £3/400,000 wages paid by Real Madrid. No wonder he's still got a smile on his face!!!! Lol

    Winks pushes for loan move?

    What the hell is going on with Harry Winks. Again tonight he was Man of the Match (Again)and had a passing completion rate 2nd best in the match. He scored again. He does fluff the odd pass but his overall performance does justify his selection. He ain't ever going to be world class but he can get better, he can develope and he can be influential within the squad. Unlike a lot of our squad he ain't cooked yet, with the right attitude which already seems fine he will get better. Whats the latest on him being loaned out at his request or the Clubs decision.?

    Well we didn't start with our strongest team but we are going to finish with a stronger team. Well done Jose...70 mins of concern but now you've made up for it. Couple of goals to put the game to bed. Hope the commentators don't try to pick a Spurs player as Man of The Match!!

    Spurs v Wycombe FA Cup 4th round

    Oh Dear. I did warn Jose. Strongest team until you 3-0 or 4-0 and their heart and lungs are ripped from their bodies and they start to give up. Our class will show in the 2nd half and we will probably walk it but at half time...they still think they are in it. A mistake Jose. Gareth and Lucas don't look too bad against a Championship side!!!!!

    Harry Confirms Jose's Instructions :

    Hohjbjerg certainly seems to have a competitors appetite to be Captain. Whether he has the deep committment and love of Spurs and future desire to lead Spurs at a higher level we cannot know. As Spurs progress hopefully a candidate will emerge with all of the qualities required. James, I detect "sitting on the fence" is no longer enough. Stirring the Pot and encouraging Jose Mourinio (the World Class Manager) supporters into a debate is more fun. Lol im not sure Jose screaming all game long would be able to drag a good performance out of Bale or Moura. IMO

    Harry Confirms Jose's Instructions :

    Exactly James!! You have identified the problem without even knowing it!! Amongst this squad are players that are unable or unwilling to follow instructions. Jose was held responsible for their inability to press for 90 minutes. In fact he and I took much stick for the last few months until Harry Kane confirmed it was the players failing. Jose Mourinio has only been in charge for 13 months of a disjointed period where the season is totally up and down. Having overseen our best Summer Transfer Window for decades and resolved many issues within the club including deadwood removal and contract renewal He has done very well to stabilise the club after 6 months of meltdown under our previous Manager. Klopp took a couple of years sorting out the behind the scenes problems at Liverpool and assembling the squad he wanted. I think Van Dyke almost completed his task and only then did success follow. It's frustrating I know for some fans to understand that it will take 2 or 3 years to put everything into place. Another couple of good transfer window will do the job. So it's not a case of blaming his tools but not yet having the right tools.Lol

    He doesn't want to upset them...!!!!! Until my second idea is adopted and we recruit and appoint a hardened and seasoned profssional as Team and Club Captain the soft spursy will always be there. Hugo as Captain...I'm sure that is a very nice idea!!! But......

    C-virus

    Does anyone know is there an official date that Country's around the World have to declare True figures and Stats on the number of Covid Cases and the Actual number of deaths. After 6 months even that land of Openness and Honesty Russia realised they couldn't just keep quoting 100 plus deaths daily. Now they are quoting a steady 500 a day. I am sure many countries have such inept medical services they probably don't have a clue. As the only country in Europe that Is suffering 1000 ish deaths a day perhaps our excellent NHS system is bettered by our ability to count ( and our level of honesty).
