Good to catch up  , we are old school when you had to put in the effort before a ball was kicked , eg marking pitches putting nets up taking kit home to wash ect ect , now you just can turn up play the game and sod off without another thought ,  players today at local level don't realise what they have , to late when it is gone as we see every season in Cornwall .

Haven't watched it yet, I did say just above halfway this season, so, may be - may be not.

I'll watch the highlights first......then let ya know buddy.

Now I've watched the highlights.

Very good game played at huge pace, Spurs shaded the game all round and could have possibly won it - but didn't.

One of those things, if we play like that every game at Wembley I'll change my prediction of just above halfway to top 6.

But the league table still looks good to me.

Careful, I'm in Somerset at the moment, having a few days off. Going home tomorrow, I might set it on fire before I leave if you upset me.,,

Moved from Somerset.Dont live there anymore.

Over the moon with our transfer buisness. [ Unlike others ].

Just the two out, Walker and Wimmer.

Replaced with Aurier,a good if not better than Walker,at half the price.Then two promising youngsters ,Sanchez and Foyth to replace Wimmer.

Add to that a back up keeper,and Llorente,who is a great experienced striker,who has been there and done it.Great back up for Kane.

Now may be the moaners can stop going on about strikers.

We now have three.

Add the Champions League draw to the transfer window,and its happy day's.

COYS.

Bloody Emmett.  Aurier good signing , is he allowed in to Britain ? Thought there was a problem when he tried to enter before ?   Agree about Sanchez what a **** up , a player who doesn't want to be there and in January can negotiate a free transfer , so no money for him Ozil the same what a lash up ,Ivan and Arsene have really messed this up , the club has been left looking stupid and other fans are laughing at it , the Gooners are also trying to get our head around what the f... Is going on  , for a so called top  club are left embarrassed and no players wanting to join , not a great time to be fan  , we can only hope it will improve .

You listen to too much hype in the media. Arsenal will be fine.

Spurs did good business. Never rated Walker much, so to get £50M for him, wow. Llorente is a player I admire. Good old-fashioned No. 9 I reckon. Not sure about the others, never heard of them. Maybe they can go on to get a "home" win at some time soon  lol

Mangle I don't listen to the media  as much as you think , and I have my own opinions on the club , I don't see it through rose tinted , perfume smelling glasses , something is wrong  inside the club , Arsene alluded to this during the interview after the game on Sunday ,  Wrighty who  still refers to him as the Boss  thinks he should now step down ,   with him getting a new contract  he must have known that the pressure would be on if results went against the team . Facts we have conceded eight goals in three games  ,two losses with the loss at Anfield  which was probably one of the worse team performance for a few seasons  if it wasn't for the keeper it could have been even more . No shots on target for the whole game , I am sorry but you can't dress it up  to make it  any better .  The club will be there after Arsene , silent Stan and Ivan the terrible are long gone and after I leave this mortal coil, but the team are not playing well , the build up is to slow ,they don't move the ball quick enough from defence to the forwards , they no longer counter attack at pace . I hope after the international break  that they can  sort it out and hit the ground running , But there needs a big improvement on and off the pitch  to take the club forward , because at the moment it is treading water .  Don't like it we should be talking and praising the style of football  they play .

Interesting statement from Pochettino.

I want to make Tottenham a great football club.

Winning the League or F.A.Cups dont do that.

Wigan won the F.A.Cup,where are they now.?

For Tottenham to be great,we must win the Premier League,or the Champions League.

Look forward to seeing the reserves play tonight,then.

Spurs (4-2-3-1): Vorm, Trippier, Foyth, Vertonghen (c), Walker-Peters, Dembele (Dier 79), Winks, Sissoko, Dele (Oakley-Boothe 90+1), Son, Llorente (Nkoudou 67).

Substitutes (not used): Gazzaniga, Alderweireld, Eriksen, Kane.

Still a useful looking side!

Very surprised by the strength of that side.

A 1-0 win and into the next round.

WHAT A RESULT,AND WHAT A START TO OUR CHAMPIONS LEAGUE CAMPAIGN.

BRING ON REAL MADRID DOUBLE HEADER.

Be a good test , spurs on a roll , Kane hatrick , he certainly knows where the net is , but I wish when he is interviewed he wouldn't end the sentence with aaaaa,  listen to his next interview and count them , really annoying ,  still good goal to games ratio ,. The big test will come when one of the bigger clubs come sniffing around , dangling. A big wedge in front of him ?

Older it's about Money ,  ambition to a certain extent , you can't even argue about short careers any more as players bar injury play well into their thirties , Spurs are up there with the top prem league sides on the pitch , but you can't compare with the wages ,terms the likes of utd , city and Chelski can pay your club is now in the Twilight zone the top four are becoming a three at the moment and then comes spurs , Liverpool , Arsenal in that order , can the three be toppled ?

Levy has promised,that when we move into the new Stadium,the increased revenue will be used to improve contracts,to keep our top players.

Now weather he adhere's to that,only time will tell.

If he dont,then Spurs are going to be a very rich Club.

Kane,Alli,Eriksen,Dier, Son,Alderwierald,Vertonghen,would bring in ridiculous sums of money.

I can see Da ja vue again , Arsenal business model , perhaps Levy has been talking to silent Satan on how to flatter to deceive the fans , smoke and mirrors SSS  , broken promises ahead , .

Nope - he won't leave for a few years yet, I sense a bit of loyalty from the fella.

A bit like Vardy turning Assenhole down.
