…it’s taken long enough. Seven and a half years, 202 games, four managers – with one caretaker – plus a number of better midfielders he either blocked from playing or hindered while being an automatic first team selection. I’m pretty sure after putting up with all that I’m allowed a smug “told you”. Posted after [...]
...was putting up a stink. From the man himself to his beloved extra officials to the visiting fans a stink was put out at White Hart Lane as Spurs were denied an opening game victory in the Europa League.
...is required. Spurs drew 1-1 with Norwich in their worst game of the fledgling season so far but it's the beginning of something new that'll take time.
...coming!! In one of the worst kept secrets in football, Spurs finally announce André Villas-Boas as the new head coach and the media can't wait to stick the boot in.
...backfired. If Harry Redknapp hadn't indulge in so much Machiavellian scheming would he still be the Spurs boss or was that dramatic loss of form too much?
...and Mr. Daniel levy. Can you please pay your strikers Mr Jermain Defoe and Mr Emmanuel Adebayor their weekly wages with the new 50p pieces?
...the last few months. Spurs absolutely hammer an atrocious Liverpool in the Premier League four nothing in their best outing for months.
...deadline. Somehow the excitement of transfer window deadline day didn't reached Jim White about to explode levels at Toxic Towers.
...it? British transfer fee records flying here there and everywhere on the final day of the transfer window while Spurs get knock back after knock back and end up chasing Adam and Neville.
...firing. Spurs chairman Daniel Levy decided to sack manager Juande Ramos exactly one year to the day after firing Martin Jol, thankfully it also meant the end of the director of football Comolli, it also meant the arrival of 'Arry.
...feeling. After another league loss for Spurs, under Ramos, yet more Titanic links crop up, the year it went down, where it's captain was from and where it sailed from, all leads to that feeling.
...meant some embarrassing encounters for Spurs chairman Daniel Levy were sidestepped for now. No awkward meeting with Seville officials or Martin Jol being serenaded by the Spurs fans.
...It tolls for thee, Juande. Was that the Pompey bell or was it the death knell for the Spurs manager as the media sharks start to circle.
...and you blew it big time. The Spurs chairman could have done something about dodgy deals during the transfer window but no he took a loan player instead.
...ManUre then. Levy managed to squeeze an extra few and a bit million quid out of Fergie for Berbatov which kept him from signing any decent replacements on the final day of the transfer window.
