    I felt completely gutted by his move to Chelsea and I genuinely believe he lost a lot of love for the game when he took the money and went there. The injuries don't properly explain how shit he was for them, he was better for Atleti when he went there and he was older and more injured then. Looking back on it with the benefit of hindsight, he should have retired from international football immediately after the Euro 2008 final. Seemed like every time he went away with Spain after that, he got injured. Maybe we also should have helped him a bit more by not relying on him quite so much. If we'd kept hold of Crouch or had used the Robbie Keane money more wisely, maybe we wouldn't have had to throw him into every match we possibly could, and could have rotated him a bit more throughout the season, to reduce the load on his knees and hamstrings a bit. If we'd been able to keep him and play him up front with Suarez, with Kenny as manager instead of Roy fucking Hodgson, I think he wouldn't have gone anywhere as shit as he did. All water under the bridge now like.

    Portuguese league is a lot more physical than Spain. The standard is obviously miles below La Liga but there are a surprising amount of dirty bastards in the Portuguese league.

    Almost certainly is. He's not what we need at all.

    Lallana's going nowhere til his contract's up.

    If Milan are offering any money at all for Lovren we should be snatching their hands off, the guy can't be relied upon to stay fit even when he is fourth choice. He's never started seven consecutive games for us in the four years he's been here.

    I think our Christmas games are going to be really hard. West Ham will be good this year and Leicester will be decent at home. Our run in is a twat as well, Arsenal and Chelsea in the last three.

    That Marega link has to be PR from his agent, no way we're interested in him.

    He will if he has someone rapid next to him and the midfield are good enough to stop 90% of counter attacks before they've even started. City are amazing for that, the amount of tactical fouls they get away with is absurd.

    Adam Lallana

    He's on a lot more than £65k a week.

    Hendo being great as a box to box midfielder has sorted a lot of our midfield problems. Keita has done enough to be given more time to settle in, there were some flashes of brilliance at times this season and it's a shame he got injured when he did. Between him and a returning Ox i think we'll be able to field a decent bit of creativity in the middle next season. We should be after someone who doesn't just cover for our front three but can actually compete with them for a place. Preferably four or five years younger than them too. I've seen Joao Felix on youtube cos he gets talked about here loads but there's only really Bobby's role he could play. For me Pepe is the best option but he does look a bit raw and £70m is far too much for him.

    I'm at the start, by Allerton Road. No sign yet but the 86 got a good cheer.
  12. One thing that doesn't seem to be picked up on is that the match was a shit spectacle because Spurs chose to bypass midfield for most of it. Basic pattern of play was them passing it around the back for a little bit while their midfield and full backs pushed on, then Alderweireld would hoof one up to Kane or out into the channels and try and play from there. They'd try and win it, fail, compete for the second ball and lose that too, but with seven players swarming us we didn't have much opportunity to build from the back ourselves. We didn't much need to either, we were already winning. Our best bits of play were from going direct ourselves because that's where the space was. Given the way Spurs set up we didn't have much opportunity to play good football.
  13. If there was a pundit as pro-Liverpool on this show as pro-Spurs as Hoddle is there'd be supposed neutrals foaming at the mouth about how biased the media is towards us. Incidentally how fat is Michael Owen?
  14. I seem to remember an Italian team with Nesta and Maldini going three nil up in the first half of a champions league final and still not being able to see it out. So i think our defence deserves a lot of fucking credit for how few chances they allowed Spurs to have.
  15. Firmino and Wijnaldum might as well not be playing.
