It turns out an ugly looking little girl..

Can be a very useful asset at White Hart Lane. Luka Modric was spectacular last night, again looking worth every penny of that £16.5m we paid. He looks a lot more effective at the Lane where he probably gets more time on the ball and more freedom but there are no two ways about it, he’s quality. Obviously, Stoke at home is a game we should be winning comfortably but considering the position we are in currently, the pressure on…

Credit where credit is due

Credit where credit is due

This blog post was going to be totally different at about ten past ten last night. I had plans to start a campaign to out Harry and replace him with Mike Newell or Joe Kinnear. I’ll put it on the back burner for now. Every man and his dog wants to take a pop at Spurs today, I can only imagine what it would have been like had we actually gone out the Carling Cup.

Here’s mine; Walker MabbuttKingWoodgate HoddleWaddleAndertonGascoigneGinola SheringhamKlinnsman I know what you’re thinking, too attacking. I did consider Steve Sedgley or David Howells anchoring the midfield but this team would be so amazing, they wouldn’t need to defend and with those 3 rocks at the back, other…

Let’s hope Downing doesn’t take the death threat route

Let’s hope Downing doesn’t take the death threat route

Well our little striker is back. It’s amazing what a few death threats can do to ensure a move without too much fuss! £15m is the rumoured fee but the actual amount of money changing hands is probably a lot less with Pompey still owing us money from Defoe, Kaboul and even Pedro Mendes. I think most Spurs fans are in agreement that Jermain should never have been sold in the first place but looking back, it’s probably been a…
