    Spurs detractors - the sound of silence!

    Isn't it amazing?

    We lost our last 2 games against the Mancs and Chavski and all the Spurs detractors suddenly come creaping out the woodwork like the small minded people that they are.

    Now we win another CC game with another 5 star, 5 goal performance and they are nowhere to be seen or heard from.

    So come on detractors what do you have to say about that? Surely you have something to add or will you wait until we lose again to make your smarmy comments.

    • I dont doubt you are correct Rambro, i dont take that much notice of Spurs results to argue with either you or my "mad Spurs fan".

      I found it an interesting and surprising point at the time and that was all.

      Anyone who takes note on every game his chosen club (be it Spurs,Arsenal or any other) plays and feels the urge to scrutinise the results as he said he did is "mad" in my book.

      Wish i had bloody Keane in my fantasy team this week by the way.

      Tutt.

    • Fab a couple of those wins were the same as some pre-season friendlies (beating the Irons and Hull)...but so what...that was then and this is now. We beat Liverpool pretty convincingly to open the season...we were lucky to beat them in the corresponding fixture last season...same teams but apples and oranges as far as our performances go.(and we got pretty well beaten by them the last time we played them prior to the season opener).

      Oh...and we didn't play Birmingham last season...as a matter of fact, if I'm not mistaken they did the double over us their last stint in the top-flight...so...your mad Spurs fan is truly mad and not to be taken too seriously (not only that, some newspaper reported the same thing as your "mad fan" after our third win on the bounce).

    • I was talking with a mad Spurs fan a couple of weeks ago and he told me he keeps records of all the results to compare. I commented on the good start by you Yiddos and he corrected me saying (at the time of the conversation) the results were the same as those from the corresponding fixtures from last season.

      You lot will no doubt be better placed than me to comment on this.

    • Interesting about Bentley, on the radio they said he was shocking (disinterested etc).

      Gooneresque, I may reply to your other points when I'm more awake, but you're very much wrong about our defence; Woodgate is perfectly capable of playing consecutive matches, we've had him for coming up to two years and this is the first real injury he's had, it's be largely over the summer and largely explorative to get to the bottom of the problem. Dawson has been selected for the England squad previously, and at a time when we were supposed to be overflowing with successful CBs, I have every confidence in him and would often select him ahead of Woodgate. Bassong has largely been great this season, and even if he wasn't he's allowed a bedding in period, that's necessary for every player. On each wing we have at least 2 good options, admittedly Corluka's form's not been his best recently but can you really judge them this far into the season?

      You're hugely wrong.

      Furthermore, no we shouldn't judged solely on the last two PL games for reasons discussed previously (see the many many many threads on these previously); would you have said our success rate for the season should've been judged after the first two games? No, because that would be crazy, and because incidentally those games were a 2-1 victory against Liverpool and a 5-1 victory against Hull - of course you wouldn't pick such positive results!

    • Sometimes your sanctimonious, patronising drivel is simply
      vomit inducing goonereslayer. Its a good job you have zero credentials for lecturing us about our football team... other wise we might get slightly offended......lol.
      Another cringeworthy attempt to ingratiate yourself eh? better stick to your own board son. I see you have plenty to keep you occupied over there?

    • Bentley did OK considering he hasn't played 1st team footie for a while. He's still a bit of a show-off, but his work-rate wasn't bad and he played the whole game so 'Arry must have thought he was doing something right.

    • morning fellow yidster did any1 see the game? if so how did bale bently and dosantos play ?

      • Morning all. Cracking game last night - I had a seat just behind the dugouts so had a great view of the match and the bench. Had to be very muted in my goal celebrations though as I was surrounded by home fans.

        Have to hand it to Preston - they gave us a good game from the start and didn't give up even when they were 5-1 down.

        Daws came through unscathed and barring a couple of panic clearances looked assured with no sign of his long injury lay-off - looking forward to him being back in the heart of our defence on Saturday. Gomes made some great saves and really impressed; Bale played the whole match and looked sharp; the Hudd had a better game than of late; and even Bentley looked good; Palacios bossed the midfield as usual; Hutton showed pace down the right wing, though was somewhat theatrical every time he was brought down; Crouch thoroughly deserved his hat-trick and I expected nothing less of Defoe when he scored; Keane did well and let's hope it's not too long before he finds the net again. It was a shame that Gio was subbed so early and didn't get a chance to really get going and show us what he's capable of.

        Passing was a bit suspect at times, especially towards the end - Preston really piled on the pressure once they got their goal and came close to getting a second. On the whole though we used the wingers much more but still need to get those final crosses more accurate to reach their target in the box.

        Got a bit of a sore head this morning but it's worth it, even though I'm having to spend the day working in Preston!

      • At last Bale is over his Jinx of starting a game that we've won - good for him
