Before you decide to abuse me , I'm a Swindon fan and a football fan. I think Henry's behaviour against Spain was aimed at getting the Spanish player sent off and that is completely unsportsmanlike.
Here is another example of his "greatness"!

Hey Yid girl, I think this idiot must have a very small dick and cant get a girl if has to resort to anonymously "attacking " girls on the board. Best to just ignore him and leave him to his bizarre little power trip.

Where to start....
In the modern era (last 25 years) I think it has to be Glenn Hoddle. There is no other player that other observers associate as a Spurs legend than Glenn. He had a touch and ability that was light years ahead of everyone else in his day. (Tackling may have been his weaker side...LOL)
In overall Spurs legend, for me it would have to be a tie between Danny Blanchflower & Jimmy Greaves. They had that certain "something" that stands them apart from the rest.
C'mon you Spurs!!!!!!!

I agree with your assessment of the Bolton game and I also think the gooners will win all their remaining games (at the time Man City were playing much better but they have been awful of late), so we must win against West Ham.
I also agree that we have tended to get the wrong end of the luck in recent times, which does support your predictions, I guess I felt we had been so consistent this year especially at home, and Martin has done such a great job bringing many new players in and building a TEAM that we had every chance of holding out to cross the finish line this time round.
Either way mate, I know I'll be cheering at the top of my voice this weekend if we beat the hammers, and even if the gooners do win the CL this year and take the CL spot from us next year, I'll be just as pleased to be playing UEFA cup next year. To be honest I think we have a much better chance of going all the way in the UEFA cup than the CL. But I'll take whatever comes. Finishing above the gooners this year will be enough.
C'mon you Spurs!!

So, 'whenicomearound', have you decided to change your thoughts on 4th spot yet? For a Spurs fan you haven't posted that many positive posts about Spurs. You seemed took the oh so negative view that we would not even manage to finish 5th, and we just finish above Bolton in 6th.
I think it's time you started talking up the team and their cahnces rather than your current stance.
My prediction in the thread above was:-
Spurs' run-in - Man City - H (Win), Everton - A (Draw), Man U - H (Loss), Bolton - H (Win), West Ham - A (Win). Arsenal (Draw)
The Gooners - Man U - A (Loss), West Brom - H (Win), Man C - A (Draw), Sunderland - A (Win), Wigan - H (Win), Spurs (Draw), Portsmouth - A (Draw).
So we have one game left to secure 4th, I see no reason why we cannot win that and finish above the gooners, no matter what they do.
Regarding your retort to my prediction in the thread above, I'm proud to be a biased Spurs supporter. The only thing I got wrong in my prediction so far is that we beat Everton, when I thought we would draw.
So, have you changed your mind yet??

I like your posts, it's good to see a gooner who can come on the Spurs board and not feel they have to just throw abuse about at every turn. Good on ya.
Re this post... I (and most of the Spurs fans I know) are just "chuffed as" to know we will be playing European football again (UEFA or CL is yet to be decided), so now it's just about who finishes above who in the league. My take is that the gooners will now be focussed on the CL final (which is fair enough) and may drop some points in the Premiership as a result of resting key players, what do you think?
We have to beat Bolton at home & West Ham away to guarantee 4th, I think with the team we have now and the football we have been playing recently we can do that. We could have beaten your lot easily last weekend (even without the disputed goal), and we played well against Man U the week before but had a nightmare in defence with our South Korean trying to out-do the Man U South Korean and falling over. :(
Best of luck in the CL final, you will have to have an entirely different game-plan than last night. Barca are going to be a much bigger threat and I don't see Lehmann keeping another clean sheet.
Regardless of what the CL final brings, the race for 4th (and bragging rights) is still on, so......
C'mon you Spurs!!!

How many times has Arsene Wenger said he didn't see something which went against an Arsenal opponent. I haven't been counting but I have seen him interviewed dozens of times and say he "didn't see it!", so I think it is disgraceful for him to accuse a fellow manager of "Lying" in this way.
I watched the game and I don't follow either Tottenham or Arsenal (I'm a Swindon fan and we're heading for League 2), and as a neutral I thought it was a fantastic game to watch and the goal was fair, the Arsenal players went to get up and then realised it might work in their favour to go down again, which they did, so to my mind, it was the Arsenal players who were trying to "cheat" to stop Tottenham getting any advantage from them being out of position.
Arsene Wenger seems to delight in stirring up controversy between coaches, he's been doing it with Man United for years. He should apologise to the Spurs manager (but of course he won't) and recognise that his team were outplayed and deserved to lose, but were lucky to get a draw.
I'd be lying if I said I didn't care if we got into the CL or not, as I'd definitely prefer to see us in the CL over the UEFA cup, however, any form of European football next year will be a huge up shift for us and Martin deserves every piece of credit for what he has done in such a short time.
That being said, what I definitely do care about is finishing above the Gooners. They have played very well in the CL and whilst Villareal & Barcelona/Milan are most certainly not easy beats, I have to put my hand up and say they have a chance to win it, which would give them the CL spot next year anyway.
We have Bolton at home & West Ham away, we have the team and the ability to win both those games. Bolton will not be easy as they are figt=hting for a UEFA spot themselves and our record against them is not that great, but that was in prior years. We have lost only 2 games at home this whole season and they were to the top 2, so that's not bad at all. I think we can win both games, that will give us 4th, no matter what the gooners do in their remaining games.
C'mon you Spurs!!!

WhenIcomearound, it's about time you trundled off to the gooners board where you obviously feel more at home.
I havent seen a single post from you that talks about anything positive for Spurs, you always talk up the gooners and don't give Spurs the credit they have earned. Your points prediction has gone all to pot, you were quite happy to say mine were too biased towards Spurs, but where are we now, still 4th. My prediction is that we still be there at the end of the season. No doubt yours is that the gooners will still take it from us.
3-0. What a load of rubbish. We could have scored 3 or 4 today and easily beaten the gooners. I and a lot of other true Spurs fans said it would be a draw, and at the end of the day we were unlucky to not win.
If you really are a Spurs fan, start getting behind the team and giving them support, don't keep jumping on the gooner bandwagon.
C'mon you Spurs!!!!!

I don't understand why some of the voices on this board seem so hell bent on us failing.
Spurs deserved to get something from the game against Man U. If we play like that in our last 3 games, then we have every chance against anybody, including the Gooners. (Minus one defensive mishap obviously!)
Unlike some of the messages on the board lately, from so called Spurs "supporters" who seem quite happy to hand 4th place to the Gooners, I disagree.
We have no reason not to believe that we will win against Bolton & West Ham.
If you support the club then get behind it and start looking at the positives in our team and the great job Martin has done this year. If you're really just Gooners in disguise then bugger off to the Gooner board.
If we win against Bolton & West Ham then it doesn't matter what the Gooners do in their other games, we just need a point at Highbury, which I believe we are absolutely capable of doing. I'll even drive the bus to the ground and park it in front of the goal for them.
C'mon get behind the team and quit all the bloody whinging and negativity.
C'mon You Spurs!!!!!

My prediction is going ok so far, except that we beat Everton, so I'm 2 pts to the good.
(from thread above)... "Spurs' run-in (excluding the Derby at Highbury):- Man City - H (Win), Everton - A (Draw), Man U - H (Loss), Bolton - H (Win), West Ham - A (Win). If we can play like we were earlier in the season, I think that is not a totally implausible set of results and gives us 10 Pts from 5 games, taking us to 65 Pts. Sure - I know that we can lose every game too.
The Gooners (in my same prediction of results) would get:- Man U - A (Loss), West Brom - H (Win), Man C - A (Draw), Sunderland - A (Win), Wigan - H (Win), Portsmouth - A (Draw). This gives them 11 Pts to add to their 53, giving them 64 Pts. And yes, I know they can win every game too."
I don't share your pessimism regarding the Bolton/West Ham games. I stand by my original thinking that we can beat Bolton at home and West Ham away. But I do think that Arsenal will now beat Man City, (I had it as a draw before), Man City seem to have lost the plot lately.
We then HAVE to get something out of the game at Highbury.
Spurs Today - 61
Bolton (Win) - 3
W Ham (Win) - 3
Gooners Today - 57
Sunderland (Win) - 3
Man City (Win) - 3
Wigan (Win) - 3
Total - 66
So, I'm quite happy to park the team bus in front of the goal at Highbury and take the point.
C'mon you Spurs!!!!!!!!

I should have put some cash on the predictions :)
Still 100% right.
Ah well, I expect it will all crash and burn soon.
C'mon You Spurs!!!!!

Did you mean.....FOUR? As 4th is the League position the mighty SPURS will finish in this year.
In answer to your golf question. Who cares???? This is not the place for such issues.
C'mon you Spurs!!!!

I don't think Campbell will make any difference, he seems to have lost the plot and anyway Ledley is a much better alround player and should be in the England team ahead of Campbell.
My prediction is a draw, and Spurs to take 4th spot by 1 point at the end of the season.
C'mon you Spurs!!!!!

Methinks it's for the best. :)
Now, if Pompey can do us another favour in midweek we can all smile just the bit more.
C'mon you Spurs!!!!
