Tottenham: Gone are the days of mid-table mediocrity

Tottenham: Gone are the days of mid-table mediocrity

Some Tottenham fans are still struggling to come to terms with their new status in the Premier League, while Steven Gerrard’s return and who should take over at Aston Villa are also debated.

Spurs still surprising

Honestly what is all this new-fangled pressing? Where is Chris Armstrong air-kicking anything that goes near his left foot? Where is Gerry Francis making us play “guess which side the reporter is on” in his post-match interview? Why don’t we have the heavyweight centre-mid pairing of a mid-30s Poyet and Redknapp?

Crap comparisons aside, it really is an incredible time to be a Spurs fan. Not so long ago the visit of Man City would conjour up fears of a drubbing. We went so many years without getting a result against the old “top four”. To do this while missing three of last year’s most important players from the starting XI (Kane, Dembele and Dier) is even more reassuring.

Yes we overpaid for Sissoko and granted the signings of Janssen and Wanyama wouldn’t have sent shirt sales through the roof but all of a sudden we have a deep, versatile and powerful squad.

The Chelsea game last year was almost the making of this new Tottenham spirit. And these three signings have only added to the power we have in the side. Great times indeed!

I’ve not even mentioned the impact that NKoudou could have from the bench…

Tottenham: Celebrate their opener against Manchester City

In response to Spurs in title contention; Man City’s rigidity their Achilles heel

I can’t agree that Tottenham ran out of steam last season. Against stoke away spurs were at their very best. That was little more than a week before Leicester claimed the title. Drawing to Liverpool and West Brom, when spurs should have won, were the type of points Leicester didn’t drop. Losing to Southampton and Newcastle after Spurs’ season was over had nothing to do with tiredness. It happens to every team every season when there’s nothing to play for.

Roberto Di Matteo: Kisses goodbye to Villa job

Di Matteo out

The Villa players are either not trying,or are just not good enough,yet it’s the manager yet again who pays the price. That job is becoming a bit of a poisoned chalice. Thoughts on who will replace him? Steve Bruce might be a good bet,although not sure he’d go down well there,with his connections to Birmingham City in the past

I’d like to see Paul Ince get it. He did well with the likes of Macclesfield and MK Dons,and that got him the Blackburn job. He struggled there,but let’s be honest,a lot of managers have struggled at Blackburn since he got the sack. Mick McCarthy is another good shout,he knows what it takes to get out of the Championship.

Steven Gerrard Liverpool

Gerrard to return?

I guess we could give him the player-coach tag for emergency situations or 5 minute impact subs but I’d love to see him return as a coach. I don’t think Gerrard would unsettle things for Klopp as he’s always been a hard worker and a disciplined one at that but is there a job there to come back to? I imagine Klopp would have offered him something before now if there were.I guess we could give him the player-coach tag for emergency situations or 5 minute impact subs but I’d love to see him return as a coach.

Jesse Lingard, Man Utd

Lingard worth England spot?

Can’t believe Lingard’s been picked. He’s been hooked the last two games because he was having a bad game even when Man Utd were playing well. I think he has been their weak link the last few games.

Interesting that Drinkwater has been left out due to injury yet played a full 90 mins yesterday v Southampton.

Wilfried Bony: Striker yet to score for Stoke

Woeful Wilfried

What a disgrace he has been for stoke, poor body language at least they improved when this plank left the field.
Whatever they are contributing to his wages, they should claim back.
