As we restart against West Ham today, it is hard to zone out of my virtual fuzz of a Premier League winning team. As the manager, I gracefully lead the Lillywhites to a league trophy. Ooh, and the chairman gave my £75 million to spend. Which in two senses is unrealistic and probably will never happen. That folks, is what the international break does to you.
Waking up this morning, I quickly snapped out of my dream and into the real world. It’s finally a real matchday. No Ronaldo switching to Bayern or Eriksen leaving to Barcelona. Instead, Jake Humphreys presenting an under-par BT Sport panel and Michael Owen boring us to death.
With West Ham at the foot of the table, what better time to improve from the draw against Arsenal and raise a healthy goal difference? Now I think. And with West Ham captain Mark Noble out for suspension, surely this all leads to a Tottenham win? On FIFA 17, I did beat this lot- but that’s not real; obviously.
Finally, Harry Kane returns to play in front of the faithful under the flood lights of White Hart Lane. A few goals would settle in nicely son. I mean after all, he has netted 15 goals against London teams.
The West Ham fans will probably start ripping up the seats of the away corner, but at least they will be helping us for the preparation of the new stadium. But we will have a football stadium, not a council stadium miles away from our old ground. Nice view, Hammers!
