    Manager watch: Jose Mourinho

    I think we're arguing different points. My impression of the club now is that it's in a rough patch, particularly in terms of performance; my impression would change if Mourinho were to be fired before being given a fair chance with a healthy squad. I think the real strength of the club (it's...

    Manager watch: Jose Mourinho

    I mean results and performance wise. Our position on the table flatters to deceive, in my opinion. We've certainly fallen off from our peak under Poch, and though there are a ton of reasons why that's happened, it's up to the club's hierarchy to steady the ship in response (yay, more maritime...

    Manager watch: Jose Mourinho

    I really liked Poch and was skeptical of the Mourinho appointment, but I think he's done okay with the resources provided to him and he hasn't embarrassed the club (yet) with any shitty comments or anything like that. What I worry about, though, is if this ends on bad terms, that no other...

    Let's All Laugh At... Lets all laugh at Man City

    Team That Owes Its Success To A Sovereign Wealth Fund Comes Out Against Extreme Centralization Of Power May be a bit on-the-nose for The Onion, but it works as a headline nonetheless.

    Just got banned from UEFA competitions for two years and fined 30m Euros over the FFP shadiness.

    Feel bad for Ward-Prowse, that looks really bad. Goes without saying that Sess had no bad intentions there

    Hugo seems incredibly low on confidence/game sharpness. Our defense needs to protect him a little better though.

    Player Watch: Tanguy Ndombele

    If he was considered unfit by French league standards last year, then he was definitely unfit by the standards of the Premier League. Even if he's on the right track now, it was always going to take a while for him to get up to speed, and he shows enough flashes that it's easy for me to be...

    Olivier Giroud

    Say what you will about the guy, but he is good for 1 or 2 absolute worldies a year. If Jose wants him I'm okay with it.

    Player watch: Christian Eriksen

    I kind of don't blame him to be honest. With all the vitriol aimed at him over social media these past 8 or so months, he probably doesn't want to interact too much with people who post about Tottenham. I'm happy he got a good move, though, and I'm happy we moved on as well. I liked him a lot...

    Ian Ladyman: What if Rudiger was wrong?

    An article written about allegations of racism authored by a journalist named Ladyman. It's like this article was especially designed to give my older family members heart attacks.

    Marouane Fellaini

    I remember a few years ago he was complaining to the press that he got harsher treatment from referees because he's scary looking, which is obviously ridiculous. He's just ugly is all.

    Player Watch: Harry Kane

    Was worried about his ankle and wanted him pulled after his second goal, but in hindsight I'm glad Mourinho gave him a chance to run it off. The week's break should do him good.
