Let me quote another brilliant Italian, Franco Nero, in The Mercenary (1968) - "Respect is earned, not given"
And who were Wilson and Antonio laughing at recently….none other than 2 goal Richarlison.
How Antonio can laugh at anyone beats me. Just a big lump

Watching the match back, I didn't realise how objectionable Newcastle have actually become. Joelinton, Guimares and Wilson are 3 absolute thugs and gobshites; Just genuinely unpleasant seeming people. But I actually thing the worst is that Almiron. Gives it the wide eyed, "I'm so happy to be playing football, look at constantly overjoyed face" act, but is really a snidey, nasty piece of work. And they're all shit as well, I fully expect they'll be getting replaced in the next PIF funding round.

Just to show you how far Richarlison’s star has fallen. I’m in Brazil atm visiting family and when my cousins (who I have converted to Spurs fans) saw the line up they literally all collectively groaned at seeing him there.

I told them he will prove them wrong today!!

COYS and COYRicharlison lol
As you can imagine, Ive been super smug all day with my cousins lol

Wonder if Callum Wilson understands the meaning of hypocrisy? To go on a podcast and mock a fellow pro from the same league, is the definition of unprofessional. Not to mention, cowardly. At least Vic had the minerals to mock him to his face. He wouldn't dare talk shit to Richy, even from fifteen yards away.

STFU of the year award is his to lose.

And what concerns me is the way we play will create a lot of frustration in the opposition teams - Especially the ones that are are used to having a bit of ball - villa/newcastle. for eg.

And that is exactly why Bentacur is now injured, and this could easily have resulted in serious injury as well.

I hope the ref's wise up.
Seems like a lot of people giving out about this one being ignored by GNev + Co

Some good analysis and praise on MOTD 2 on how we play, the full backs and the front 4 etc.

Richard’s & Given very complimentary of us :)

Very different ‘tackle’ but yea that looked premeditated and reckless and also very close to a red.

Yeah, that one had me seething as it was proper dangerous but nobody seemed to mention it.
A real snidey and cowardly challenge.

Actually, the one I hate and always hate is when an attacker ducks under a defender going up for a header and knocks them head over arse. Those fouls are so dangerous. I’ve seen in games on TV ans that I’ve played in some very serious injuries occur as a result. Broken arms, dislocated shoulders, fractured collarbones, concussions, broke ribs and neck injuries. It is a foul that I feel should have stronger consequences. EG: Isak purposefully did one of these to Romero in the second half. For me, that is a bare minimum of a yellow card if not a red. As the player is completely unprotected and there is a very strong chance they can suffer a catastrophic injury.

In the NFL (and rugby too) this is considered one of the worst fouls you can commit. EG: in the NFL it’s called hitting an unprotected player And at least is 15 yard penalty, and often leads to the person who committed the infringement to be kicked out of the game. So surprised this isn’t enforced with more vigor and higher punishment level in football.

That’s because the powers that be don’t understand the game. Absolutely agree it’s such a dangerous foul.
It never gets highlighted. They’re more interested in getting players sent off for much less dangerous challenges.
As someone said this season so far there have been more red cards than the whole of last season.
They will only change when a player gets seriously hurt. Too late.

Watching the highlights back , we played a completely different style in the 2nd half , we sat a lot deeper and played on the counter ( very effectively ) this narrative that we play on the halfway line is total nonsense .

At half time on Sunday I was playing a quick game of cards with my dog, Gordon Durie.

He had miraculously just pulled another ace from his paw when my 12 year old son, Chaikovsky poked his head around the door and asked me a poignant question.

“daddy dearest, papa, what are you thoughts on Son playing on the left and Mr Kulusevski owning the right side”

I smiled and Gordon Durie stretched out lazily in front of the roaring fire.Times like these are what the game is all about, bringing us all together in a blanket of love.

I hope you think of Chaikovsky this week. He’s having a tough time at school (not easy being the only child at 12 with a a degree in thermo nuclear propulsion). There are several other kids who make fun of him due to his love of Daniel Levy and his property portfolio.

As we all know, kids can me mean. Think of him today whilst you have your lunchtime brandy.

Here is a pic of us taken at the West Ham game as I know some of you will doubt that this post is true.
