We might need to sign some more rubbish

We might need to sign some more rubbish

Downing, Bellamy, Parker. These names fill me with dread but at the same time they could be a necessary evil. Harry’s honeymoon period is well and truly over. Our strikers are shit. Our midfield is shit. Our defence is OK. The build the team round a little Croatian tactic was a good idea, but doesn’t work if your strikers aren’t intelligent enough to play with him. I know he’s small but I’d quite like to see two up top with…

Tottenham v Fulham – Pain Preview

Tottenham v Fulham – Pain Preview

Merry Christmas everyone. I got a cracking present from the Mrs, the new Spurs Player by Player book, signed for me by one Ricky Villa! I quite fancy us to get a result tomorrow, Hodgson has Fulham playing as a solid unit but I think they will come unstuck soon and it’s more likely to happen away from Craven Cottage. Their home form was always good, there was just a blip under Sanchez. They are yet to win away this…

£12m swoop for Upson

£12m swoop for Upson

The talk both before and after yesterday’s game was of a proposed move by Harry for Matthew Upson during the transfer window. Redknapp is becoming increasingly frustrated with only having Ledley available for one game in two or three and doesn’t rate Dawson as an adequate understudy. I’m not sure what the deal is with West Ham at the moment but it would appear they are happy to sell their stars if the price is right. £12m is a lot…

David Bentley and Real Madrid

David Bentley and Real Madrid

The British press are amazing. According to the Daily Star, Ramos is going to sign both Aaron Lennon and David Bentley! According to most of the rumours I heard, Bentley was one of the main reasons Ramos got the boot. Not only because of his awful performances on the pitch under Ramos, but also for displays of dissent towards the manager in the dressing room. It was him kicking off when he heard he was being left on the bench…

Wendy Ramos, you’re not as stupid as you look!

Wendy Ramos, you’re not as stupid as you look!

I felt a little sorry for Juande after his sacking from Tottenham, I feel a little less sorry for him after today, he’s been appointed manager of Real Madrid, in case you didn’t know! “I would like to thank the board for their confidence – I face this job with excitement. It’s everybody’s dream,” he stated. “I hope I don’t let anyone down and that I achieve the successes that this club has set for this season. “In most of…

Harry 100% at the Hammers

Harry 100% at the Hammers

Tonight’s game sees us visit a rejuvenated West Ham at Upton Park. After a shaky period, Ganfranco Zola has got his side defending quite well and they have managed five points from a possible nine in their last three matches. We have been going along well under Harry but after a couple of recent defeats in the League, we could really do with 3pts tonight. A big positive going into the match is Harry’s record as opposing manager when visiting…

We have our own Rory Delap

We have our own Rory Delap

So why not start using him? Gareth Bale can launch a throw in the same manner as Rory Delap and I think we should utilise this part of his game more. I’m not saying we make it a staple part of our play like Stoke but there would be no harm mixing it up a bit with a few ‘Bale Bombs’. Yesterday’s defeat at the hands of Everton was unlucky but we have had our fair share of luck since…
