Just read an article about Poch’s son Sebastiano being on the bench for a bit of work experience in his role as a future Sports Scientist – Poch says he loves Tottenham and the players trust him – if this is true its great news! Another reason for Poch to stick around and build a legacy. Happy happy days COYSJanuary 26, 2016 at 3:27 pm #820748
This lack of transfer activity is worrying but in true Spurs style we will leave it 30 seconds before the deadline. Bring on Monday.January 27, 2016 at 11:24 am #822329
Not sure if we actually need to buy anyone – other than the back up for Kane. And that signing is a tricky one because it absolutely has to be someone that knows he will be second fiddle to Kane, and yet is good enough for our season not to collapse if, god firbid, Kane is injured. Someone like Morata will not come because he would consider himself better or at least as good as Kane. MD2 would be my pick. Big enough, ambitious enough, yet happy to be in a bigger team – even if he doesn’t start.January 27, 2016 at 5:37 pm #823325
I read today that facebook is introducing ‘like’ options. I hope for their sake they are not resorting to ‘thumbs’!January 28, 2016 at 9:12 am #824921
What are people’s thought on Chelsea wanting Poch? Would he want it, should we be worried? Personally I think the lure of the money he would be given might tempt him but the new stadium, the chance to build a legacy and CL football next year might hold him.January 28, 2016 at 9:26 am #824966

I don’t think he’d go…January 28, 2016 at 9:47 am #825026
Poch is doing a fantabulous job at Spurs. It’s only right his achievements are recognised and that people want him.
Would he go? Let’s hope not!
Let’s hope he wants to stay and build a legacy at Spurs and be a part of the revolution to the new stadium, and the development of this young squad and where they may go in the next few years. It is a really good thing (Spurs) at the moment and it would be something special for him to look back on. I don’t think there is anything he cannot achieve here, in time.January 28, 2016 at 12:05 pm #825440
Ignore the troll… COYS!!January 28, 2016 at 1:16 pm #825671
Why oh why do we keep opening new topics? I think this is the major fault with this forum. What stops me reading and posting is the trawling through all these topics that Why do we not all just post on the YOUR SAy topic and we can all respond with ease and have a proper debate.January 28, 2016 at 1:23 pm #825704
Poch Left the training ground supposedly sick, off to Chelsea??????January 28, 2016 at 4:07 pm #826124
Does anyone else think that if it was United and Liverpool in the top 4, instead of Leicester and Spurs, the pundits would already be talking of a ‘top four break-a-away’ and the rest being in a ‘race for 5th’?January 28, 2016 at 4:21 pm #826136
I’m concerned about the number of games we have coming up. Europe and da cup are really going to test the squadJanuary 30, 2016 at 2:31 pm #829649
With 8mins to go we have just made it 4-1 up but considering our recent high standards we are definitely not at our best. Really loose in midfield and giving them too much space and letting a poor team play the ball to their feet too much. Still though, shouldnt really complain – good game to watch! COYSJanuary 30, 2016 at 3:33 pm #829772
Trust you are well. Strange thing how we can all watch the same game and yet come away with entirely different impressions. I thought we looked really good today. Admittedly against weaker opposition than we are accustomed to, but for me, we moved the ball faster, played more one touch football and created chance after chance. On another day we might have scored double figures. I thought Tripper looked great going forward…have we finally got a full back who can actually cross the ball…and Wimmer looked solid and capable of filling in for Verts. Song was bright and inventive when he came on and Eriksen looked more at home playing through the middle. Chadli seems back to something approaching his best form and even Carroll showed improvement. Only down side for me was yet another lack lustre Lamela showing and Dier looking a little less comfortable at centre half than I would have hoped for.
Perhaps in my old age I’m beginning to view games through the rose tinted specs, so often recommended to me by Crespur, in days gone by.

I think we played well. There was less pressing than normal and we did give them more space, but we conserved energy and still controlled the game. Trippier looked very good, but it was Colchester. I like Dier at def mid but not so much as a CB. A good 4-1 win, a confidance boost for Chadli Wimmer Trippier and rest a few players. COYSJanuary 31, 2016 at 11:10 am #831398

Gus … the most annoying thing , is that there is no way for me to directly reply to your poat re “why open other topics”. You have to look down , and see if anyones bothered!! Thats why people open new topics, to get replies going. The old way was SSSOOOOoo much better..January 31, 2016 at 5:19 pm #832076
I agree with your assessment on the whole except for two things. Carroll was awful for the majority of the games, every two seconds he was giving the ball away to the point the commentator huffed! (Couldn’t get tickets frustratingly!) Lamely go two assists in the game too but on the whole was poor. Thinking about it, Eriksen wasn’t all that either. A potential temporary solution for backup striker could be Chadli up front and Son out wide drifting it. He looked very comfortable and seemed to enjoy a central role, has the strength required. Kane did seem really off the boil worryingly.
Hope you’re well mate.
TKOJanuary 31, 2016 at 6:01 pm #832148
I’m well thanks mate. Trust you’re the same.
I’m by no means a fan of Carroll but I thought he was better than of late, although given how poor he’s been I accept that doesn’t mean a lot. I thought Eriksen was good but as I’m such a fan of his, I might well be watching him through the old rose tinted specs. To be honest I have no idea why Kane was even in the starting line up. Seemed to be a risk not worth taking given the opposition.
Have to say that I’m enjoying the season enormously in spite of having relinquished my season ticket, or perhaps that’s why. So much travelling for so little reward was beginning to take its toll I think. Much more relaxed about all things Spurs these days.
Great to see you back posting on a regular basis mate…although I still await your prediction league come back.?
Cheers Bloggs.January 31, 2016 at 6:23 pm #832229
Yes I am well thanks really busy at the minute but I am managing (just) to keep track and watch games if not post regularly about them. Agree with most of your assessment of the Colchester game, maybe I am being a bit harsh, I think I am just waiting for the walls to cave in on our season and wake me up from this dream that we may actually win something this season. No scratch that, we may win more than one thing this season…..exciting times my friend! COYSJanuary 31, 2016 at 7:45 pm #832454
I think we’re all the same Dazza. It’s got an almost surreal feel about it at the moment hasn’t it? I can’t get used to writing Spurs and Title in the same sentence at all. Fingers crossed the magical mystery tour continues at Carrow Road on Tuesday.
As you say Dazza, exciting times indeed.
