No mate, nothing wrong with you. I have been extremely underwhelmed with our performances, not even remotely whelmed. Lucas was the only one who really bothered Watford, a freaky. flukey free kick goal won it, and it was fucking embarrassing seeing us trying to hold the ball in the corner at the end of the game when we were playing Watford at home. I suppose it's going to take time for Nuno to purge the Jose out out of the players, maybe he won't be up to the job, I hope he will and we will start to see some classy old-school Spurs performances in the weeks to come. At the moment it's dull as fuck and I am not jumping for joy, even though we are top and they are bottom. Early days and if these lucky wins help us at the end of the season then that will be triffic, there's nothing wrong with winning a few ugly games 1-0, but ...3 games, 9 points, 3 clean sheets.....but I'm still not that impressed. Is there something wrong with me ?
I think we're getting away with it more than forcing the issue if that makes sense. I have to be honest, but when Harry announced he was staying I wasn't doing cartwheels...why ? Because, although the bloke's a legend and we owe him nothing, he'd be gone if he had the choice...not that I'd blame him. Lucas was dropped today. He's been fucking brilliant so far, aggressive, direct and makes things happen but because Harry has had to come back with his tail between his legs after Levy stood his ground, Lucas gets cast aside. What will that do for his confidence ? And what about Son ? Off the record, will he be happy about it ??
I dont want to be a glass half empty fan here, cos I'd prefer Nuno to the cunt all day long...I'm just not getting a warm fuzzy feeling. I just hope there isn't unrest or awkwardness in the dressing room.
But look, we're top, and they're bottom...so yay.
I thought Hugo was the captain?Being top will not help the loosening of any purse strings... it will justify burning said purse and buying of a new Yacht...
We desperately need a CM who can change a game or even effect the game. I don't even know if that player is available especially as the window is about to be slammed shut and seasons have started.
I said this elsewhere that the warm and fuzzies from H simply don't exist right now... if i can tell that from the TV, I'm sure as shit that it's frosty as a mother fucker in that dressing room...
He is supposed to be our captain and a driving force in leading us to glory... not seen that yet.
I didn't want him to go, I'm glad he stayed but this also doesn't seem right either.
Hopefully he needs rongwt his shit together and suck it up and realise that if he wants to go next year that he must continue to perform at the highest level to achieve that...
Agree with all of this. I guess one thing I will say is that it's difficult to work out exactly how Santa wants them to play, but that was true under the last prick as well--remember how open his first few games in charge were? Watford defended so deep for much of this game that most teams would've struggled to break them down, and as you say, we very much needed a playmaker in midfield. IMO Hojbjerg is a little more direct in his passing that what we saw last season, but that's not enough.It's not pretty at the moment, let's be honest, but I'd rather be posting 1-0 wins while the players get to grips with how Santa wants them to play than the reverse.
He's obviously done some Christmas magic on Dier and Sanchez for starters as they look almost competent at the moment. Same with Bergwijn. At the moment, he's looking like a different player than last season.
I do agree that we need a creative midfielder like GLC (Gemma Louise Collins ? ) to complement Hojbjerg. Skipp does a good job of keeping the ball moving by getting it and giving it to someone else, but then Winks did that a lot as well.
I'd want to see Son, Lo Celso and Gil behind Kane personally. That could have some potential for some flair and goals.
But fuck it all anyway, we're top and they're bottom ..
ComPLETEly off topic, I hated having him as our manager, but I bet Mourinho would be brilliant to go out on the piss with. So I started thinking about which of our ex managers would be the best value on a night out. I think 'Arry and El Tel are must haves, who else would you bring along?It's all going quite well isn't it. The Mourinho nightmare memory is fading, it might not even been true. What a total cunt that bloke is.

You always want someone to take the piss out of... usually the lad who is cocky as fuck because they once fingerbanged a cheerleader or scored a flukey free kick and has lived off of it since.ComPLETEly off topic, I hated having him as our manager, but I bet Mourinho would be brilliant to go out on the piss with.
