    Could you even call it a "massive" summer?

    Alleged racist abuse of Ledley King? Well, not such a biggie as Ledley was caught dishing out racism of his own.

    Nice.

    Does that somehow make Terry's racist abuse ok then? Didn't realise it worked that way.

    @vijay_UK So two wrongs make a right? They are both utter cunts.

    Juninho has joined the BBC world cup team.

    Perhaps I'm being a little unfair, but I can't imagine his punditry extends far beyond being very polite about everyone.

    The BBC pundit team not the most productive choices.

    Dummett has had the red card Steven Gerrard awarded him rescinded.

    Can't believe more wasn't made of that, particularly as Dowd was clearly reaching for a yellow card at first - a memory washed away in the tide of close season tears.

    Brown and O'Shea we're never a first choice centre back partnership.

    I've no idea where you've pulled that one from. ;)

    Uncle Sam to decide on his future. Go to Spurs!
  • Deleted user 13 May 2014 18:49:14
    Fat Sam is more likely to be a future Everton manager than a Spurs one, so laugh it up.

    Suprises me that West Ham want him out look at the state of Bolton and Blackburn after he left. Where has playing the so called west ham way got them over the years. He keeps them in the league every season which is essential with the olympic stadium move.

    Crazy to think West Ham are paying him more than Blanc gets at PSG.

    Hyperbole, my dear chap. :)

    They did play important roles with 30+ apps in all comps in at least one title-winning season though, or I'm a monkey's uncle. Lots of times they played as FBs or DM admittedly.

    Joe Hart's gotta get his head and shoulders in the right place for the penalties.

    The World Cup ads have started.

    No idea if this is true but wouldn't be surprised:

    Not sure how Pochettino will handle egos. If his remit is CL-qual, he'll be needing to buy a different class of player than he could at Southampton. And with quality players you can get inflated egos.

    Still, like his persona and like Saints' style of football.

    But I do think Pochettino is also the right kind of manager for us. I'd be very happy with either.
    Do you think Pochettino would get away with the "no speaka de eeengleesh" schtick at Spurs? I'm wondering if it would be too big a step up for him.

    De Boer would be ace I reckon.
    I agree with that (sorry to blow your thread-cred :p).

    I think Pochettini is too big a risk for Spurs. He's not managed a top club with the egos to match. He could 'just' be another Pulis. De Boer would be better, I feel, but he's no more likely to succeed than AVB was. Benitez would be just the job for the maximum 18 months that any new manager will have. Moyes would do no better than Sherwood.

    Here's a prediction: if they don't get a manager as experienced as Benitez, the Spurslols will have started before Christmas, fans will want Levy's head on a stick, and certain people -in their darkest private thoughts- will be thinking perhaps Spurs should have stuck with Tim after all.
