    No, he primarily played CDM, only covering CB at times. We actually often started with a CM2 of Dier and Wanyama, as Dembele was hurt.

    Team v Sheffield United (a)

    Yeah I agree, completely ridiculous that he wants to start Vorm up top.

    Arsenal

    I still disagree. You get relegated on the pitch not in the boardroom or in the office, and their playing squad is still of a far superior quality to many other PL teams (unfortunately). They might underperform relative to the media and fans expectations, but that's still a far shout from...

    Arsenal

    Get real, of course they won't be relegated. They've restarted terribly, but before the break they were on a good run, and nearly overtook us. They still have some very good players, even if some of them aren't performing.

    Manager watch: Jose Mourinho

    Agree. His debut at home against the Scum in that otherwise forgetable 08/09 season was a joy to watch. He was instrumental in our 1-0 win at home against eventual champions Chelsea as well. Seemed to up his game when we really needed it.

    In general I think we'll see a very quiet window. Clubs will be afraid to sell too cheaply, and many clubs will be limited by the effects of the long shutdown in terms of spending power.

    Exactly. But to understand this, you have to understand that price isn't only a reflection of ability. If price was a true and perfect reflection of ability only, it would be impossible to pick up bargains in the transfer market. This might have become harder over the years, but its still...

    This. The simple justification for this course of action can also be cooked down into "If we don't do it someone else will, so we might as well benefit from it".

    David Brooks and possible Ake would be great buys. We'll need a left footed CB whether Vertonghen leaves this summer or not.

    Player Watch: Harry Kane

    Exactly. A transfer to United would be extremely unambitious by both Kane and Spurs. The only semi-realistic destination I can see for him in the UK is Man City. They have the money, will be willing to pay the wages, are serious challengers and doesn't have previous bad blood with Levy...

    Have you missed football?

    I miss playing it a lot. I also miss watching Spurs, just a little bit. It's funny though, at the time the league was suspended I was probably the most emotionally drained I've ever been, in relation to Spurs. Just waiting for this shit season to be over. This situation is obviously terrible...

    Society cannot be divided into the old classes anymore. The lines have become much more blurry (thankfully). Social mobility is much bigger today than in the past, and the working class has predominantly turned into what you would earlier describe as the middle-class. The lower class today...

    While I don't disagree with that particular match, he was overall below what you'd expect from a PL level defender. It was another time though, where a lot of punts was taken on "exotic" players from the continent, as the first big TV-deals propelled the PL clubs into the absolute economic...

    Team v Burnley (a)

    I don't know where you get the energy to think about this at the moment. I haven't felt this drained emotionally in regards to Spurs, for as long as I can remember. Even when we were shit at the end of AVB's reign, or the start of the 08/09 season with 2 points from 8 games, I still felt we...
