    ECL Vitesse Vs SPURS Thursday 21st Oct 16.30pm

    This is a forum about Tottenham Hotspur Football Club not just a particular match. There was a tendency for the match threads to deteriorate after a while into other matters not directly related to a specified match. This made it difficult for members to follow a particular line of discussion. I advised back on Sept 27th in the Announcements thread under the title of Site Clean Up that I would close the latest match thread about 24hrs after the final whistle along with some other 'tidying up' details regarding posts that had received no replies after one month being deleted. I received no responses objecting to these proposals. I will acknowledge your point about them closing too early in your opinion. What I will do in the future is shut down the last Match thread 48hrs after the final whistle. That should give everyone a chance to voice an opinion on the game and if not there is always the option of them opening a new thread in The Match section in order to state their viewpoint on a certain matter relative to the fixture. I do not intend to let these threads remain open indefinitely or be an opportunity for irrelevant remarks and off topic posts to be made. We are averaging two matches a week so the "conveyor belt" of games will naturally continue to run for the present time. It will be quite interesting to see how many posts are made within the final 24 hrs of the 48hr post match time slot. I will therefore re-open the Newcastle thread for another 24 hours, closing it at 19.00 tomorrow.
  2. I told everyone some time ago about an app you could download from the Google Play Store which showed every football match live. It has now been updated and replaced by a new version. Here's the link to its location in the playstore : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.myfavorite.football.scorelive&hl=en_IE&gl=US It shows all Premier League, Champions League, Ligue 1, Serie A,La Liga, Bundesliga,Portugal Premiera League, Greek Super league, Dutch Eredivisie, Italian Serie B, EFL Championship and Scottish Premiership games Enjoy !

    The Metaverse Is Coming !

    It's just like Tottenham being bottom of the Premier League so the supporters stop attending games and try to get them as League Champions by playing FIFA21 on their Playstations and X Boxes.

    My mate sent me a Whatsapp message today. It was a picture of the new Newcastle Chairman's daughter turning to her Father at half time and saying "This is shit Dad, can we go to the stoning instead ?" Okay following on from the @Audere Est Facere message to me this Match Thread will remain open until 19.00 tomorrow and all future ones will be locked 48hrs after the final whistle of the game.

    Don't Laugh At Arsenal

    I'll definitely be watching tonight's match and hoping that Vieira can take his Crystal Palace side to the Emirates and come away with 3 points.

    The Metaverse Is Coming !

    Facebook to hire 10,000 in EU to work on metaverse https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-58949867 So basically the idea is to create a complete virtual World for everyone to live in and interact with each other. Us oldies must all be asking the same question "What's the matter with living in the one we already have ?". Surely this is just a way of retreating from the current problems within this planet and existing in an unreal environment that allows us to do as we wish without fear or recrimination or guilt. The plot of the Matrix films seems to be coming closer each day with people ending up as nothing more than immobile 'power cells' for supporting a VR World. It's an unnerving concept, "Don't like the World you live in ? then come and help create a virtual one and do as you please".

    Dier's Own Goal Explained Notice how the ball is going over Romero's head and that Dier is in a standing position Now look at this picture which was taken before the ball made contact with Dier : This picture is as the ball makes contact : The picture above shows he was clearly crouching down in an effort to send a cushioned header back to Lloris. It went horribly wrong and he mistimed it completely, resulting in the ball hitting his knee and then the back of the net. Maybe next time he'll consider just booting it into row Z instead.

    Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg : 118 touches of the ball, 99 attempted passes with a 96% success rate and eight tackles which was just one less tackle than our entire back four. It was also his pass that opened up the Newcastle defence for Harry to score his first league goal An absolute power house today and my choice for team Captain if/when Lloris decides to leave. Definitely a bargain at £15m Here's the player ratings and Ndombele tops the list with 9/10 with Hojbjerg second on 8.5/10 https://www.spurs-web.com/spurs-news/opinion-player-ratings-from-tottenhams-3-2-win-over-newcastle/

    Never really imposed ourselves in the second half and they were there for the taking. Really do need that killer instinct otherwise one cock up like we had with Dier and the whole impetus changes and we are on the back foot again. It really is all about self confidence and there's nothing helps that more than a run of wins. If we can get another result on Thursday night and then beat West Ham next Sunday the match against Man Utd promises to be a cracker and could well determine the fate of OGS. Ndombele was lively today as too Reguilon and Moura. Son looked a little under the weather and not firing on all cylinders whilst Harry clearly enjoyed his goal. Romero and Royal are naturals at winning us free kicks and I am delighted with the manner in which our dead ball deliveries are improving, particularly corners. Let's not get carried away here and acknowledge just how bad Newcastle really were but we did respond to their early goal in a positive way and Ndombele took his opportunity with consummate ease. The guy oozes class when he's on the ball and in the right frame of mind, let's hope Nuno finds a way to keep him on the boil rather than just simmering. Lots of reasons to be positive following this performance but the finger of concern must point (yet again) at Eric Dier. It's just like he has a brain fart, no pressure,cruising to victory and he goes and pulls a stunt like that . He and a couple of others are the weak links that prevent us from challenging for cups and titles. We either accept that and do something about it or we allow ourselves to be shackled by their inability to give consistently high quality performances and remain a mid table team.
  10. They will be bouncing after the win at Everton and looking for another 3 pts. I was definitely lifted by the Newcastle performance but felt we should have gone for the jugular and put another 2 or 3 past them second half. Provided we continue to progress from that result then I can see us getting a draw here or maybe scraping a very lucky win. I'm going to go for a 2-2 draw with Harry netting both our goals.

    I agree. I noticed Nuno talking and smiling with Dier after the game rather than giving him the hard stare (which is what I would have done). It gave Newcastle a huge boost, suddenly the crowd are lifted and looking for an equaliser.I'd have Rodon instead of Eric all day long.

    Eric is a disaster waiting to happen. Surely we will get rid in January...

    Shelvey just can't handle Ndombele so decided to kick him instead.

    Let's kill this off and give our goal difference a massive boost. Keep the pressure on right from the whistle

    Now we are motoring, there's goals to be had now. Excellent response to a shitty start.
