Oh Dear! Harry Kane wants to get 3 points against Nott. Forest.
He just means win. I don't blame him for not paying attention with all the generic media questions they have to put up with. It's probably his standard answer.
3-0 to us versus the arse.

stambouli and capoue solidifying that back four with the french connection. stambouli on the score sheet.

lamela, eriksen, and chadli dancing on their pitiful defensive line like cirque du soleil. eriksen on the score sheet with a free kick from a defensive error by one of their two goons: flamini the slob or arteta who is rusting out.

ade finally shakes off every last remnant of his ebola virus, dengue fever, or whatever the hell he had - it was maleria - remembers he hates the arse and gets on the score sheet.

fazio and verto kill it vs nottingham and deservedly get on to the starting line up over chichi, but its one last straw for kaboul cuz if he has another stinker then we know who the starting back two will be. kaboul and verto keep a clean sheet, while rose and naughton bomb crosses, some of them making it on target, and we have the best defensive game of the season.

things are looking up boys! he's just a s**t aaron lennon and so on and so on.

LOL thanks for the optimism but I think we all know how it's gonna go down.
+1
We're still in the top half at least!
+1
man can't get it why no one else sees it. we are gonna get humiliated by arsenal and all the other top 6 teams. bigger players wanting to jump ship when big club comes in for them, no one coming in in jan even though we have needed decent striker for donkeys, another good manager sacked within a year and that damn arse levy still sitting on top. when the f**k are you guys gonna see he's a c--t with his own interests at heart! how the hell could we expect to challenge for anything with out a really captain figure and Adebayor, kane and soldado?
how many times we had 60% possession 20 shoots and still lost 1-0 over last five year. if we can't even win those games there is no hope to start with
+3
Who's wanting to jump ship? I didn't know you could see into the future, what makes you think we won't sign anyone in January?
+1
i'm a f*****g fortune teller mate! and i can tell you now spurs won't be signing a worth while striker in jan and gonna win f**k all trophies and finish top six your having a laugh. and when it happens i'll be awaiting your response. ohh sorry forgot i'm a fortune teller i already know your response come start of next season. ohh its not so bad at least we don't have to worry about thur nite europa, we got 85mil for verto, erikson, pauli, lamel and we still have lennon burning up the wing(not)
and i think we need to give Roberto Martínez a chance he's a good manager. COYS!!!!!
Same old f****n shit!
+3
Can't see any of our players on current form having bigger clubs lining up for them, so don't think we need to fear any mass exodus...
+2
We're building, I'm not expecting us to win anything or to finish higher than 5th/6th this season so anything more is a bonus. But i'll look forward to the discussion at the end of the season! It's a shame you think so little of the current crop of players.
+2
I like several of our players but as I said, if they're not performing they won't have any big clubs chasing them and be willing to put up the cash Levy will ask for.
+1
Hah sry North wasn't referring to you about the current crop. That's exactly right though, their not going to get any big money moves putting in shifts like that.
+1
Wow,topspur your a douche,give the guy time,it's early doors,you really think changing again is gonna do anything?
+2
...lol. This page has been getting so #kneejerk lately.
+1
Apart from Lloris, I can't see anyone getting a big move if we are going to get humiliated. Who the f**k would want players who can't even put half-decent performances?

If we do well, then surely we won't get humiliated. Can't see how it can be both.


Why would Martinez jump ship to join OUR LOT!

On one hand, you whine about managers not being given a year and on the other, 5 games into the season, you want our NEW manager to be replaced by Martinez already? Stay off the rum, mate. ;)
I think some of your are missing the point i'm trying to make, So i'll spell it out more clearly.
We have a good manager, potentially a great one. We have good players potentially great players.
We don't have a good team though. The only way i see us getting a great team is if the manager is stood by and given time and full control to built, purchase and create his own team.

Now this is my point, (so before anyone replies to this please carefully read and rely addressing this point). "Daniel Levy is an absolute C--T who has his own selfish interests and ego at heart and I wish he would fall on his own sword instead off sacking manager after manager. He is a business man not a manager so stop f--king picking the players we buy. Every season because of his choices we have an unbalanced squad, because they are chosen more for commercial reasons rather than their character or how they can fit in a team. So Levy please F--K OFF out of white hart lane and allow someone who is not so egotistic to take over, hopefully he would F--K off and take all the members of ENIC too!
Ohh and by the way WhiteHartRogue don't call me a douche!
If Daniel Levy gave a s**t about my comment, which i very much doubt, he would be entitled to insult me because I called him a c--t. But I did not insult you!
So, please, pretty please, pretty please with sugar on top.
Don't call me a f__kin Douche ;-)
So you want this potential buyer to come in?because it's the only way levy would be sacked,are you for that?
Topspur, you're dumb.
WhiteHartRogue please state your opinion of Levy.
Ohh and MR Dumb Dumb SuperSpurs you should have a go at that question too!
No reason to stress, we're still on target to our realistic 5th/6th place finish.
Given time, maybe Poch can take us into top 4 occasionally. In the meantime let's have a trophy or two!
+5
I'd like to see that! Looking forward to the Forest game, have a few Forest mates here in NZ so will get together and watch that one! They'll come at us full of confidence. Been doing well in the championship.
+1
I've also got a Forest mate in NZ. Thank goodness I'm touring Europe this year!
+2
We should be used to results like this now. We always seem to perform poorly against teams like Blackpool, Wigan, QPR, Sunderland or Fulham. I don't know whether it's an underestimation of the opponent or a lack of focus but it's something that has to do with the team as a whole. None of our recent managers seem to have been able to coach it out of the team and I don't know if Pochettino will be able to do so.
At the end of the day if you don't turn up in this league it doesn't matter who your playing you'll get punished for it. The thing that worried me was the performance, those first few corners we gave away were a telling sign. We really seem to struggle to break sides down that get 10 men behind the ball, which tend to be 'lower league' sides. Any side who wants a blue print on how to beat us, especially at home only needs to watch that match. In the last few seasons the home losses have been particularly bad, we need to turn WHL into a fortress again.

Some on here have criticised the fans moaning at home games but the players need to start giving a lot more. I'm going to give West Brom that one, they executed their game plan perfectly. But we've got to have so much more about us, the number 10 position worries me. When Eriksen isn't playing well (Last night) we seem to run out of ideas, Lamela starts to come in off his wing, we try to play through sides rather than around.
All teams will drop points to lesser opponents. This weekend illustrated that perfectly.

What baffles me a bit is that regardless of manager, Redknapp-Villas Boas-Sherwood-Pochettino, we simply can't work out set pieces. Nor to defend them or to create goals from them. There is no advantage for us to get a corner over the opposition taking a goal kick. I just find this very peculiar.
+2
Our delivery at set piece was poor, Eriksen didn't have a very good game.
Over past 13years, all the talk of potential however lack of success and major underachievement am I still the only one call for levy's head!
For all the managers that have come and gone, for all the players that have come and gone there are only two ever present. The fans and levy. And it's not our fault so surely someone's got to go! '?'
+1
I don't think we're at that stage just yet, yes yesterdays performance was bad. But nows the time for stability, this was never going to be an over night fix. We've got a long way to go, I just hope we give Poch a decent amount of time to implement his style. But if we end up pre maturely sacking another manager then I'm right behind you!
+2
one shot on target.. I wish i could discuss more but there is nothing to discuss.
+1
What's the best field event at the Olympics?
Discus.
+2
Chiriches simply doesn't fit in the EPL. Paulinho's just crap. I don't really know what he is, either; he's not defensively disciplined enough to be CDM, doesn't have enough vision and passing range for a CM, and not nearly as creative as typically needed for a CAM. He is somewhat of a goal threat, but how many games do we need to wait between each goal?

Damn, I miss Siggy and Holtby. This is the scenario a lot of us were afraid of at the end of the transfer window. When Eriksen isn't playing well, who plays in his place?
+2
Careful there - you get called a boo boy if you make the argument that the transfers out leave us short creatively!
+1
How the f**k are we in the realistic top 4 (Chelsea, Man City, Arsenal, Tottenham) after such poor performances?! My god, Liverpool and United must have been woeful!!!
We're not though, we've played some really crappy teams so far.
All of the expected top teams dropped points this weekend. I didn't see the game, but it sounds like it was a pretty woeful display. Glad I didn't wake up early for it.

From what I've heard, Poche looked pissed at the players. I'm hoping he drills some passion into the lads - there's just no reason this team can't do great things. Converting "potential" into "greatness" requires an attitudinal shift, fostering a belief in the self and a confidence in our actions. This isn't a new problem, I remember seeing it when we had 'Arry as well.

All I can say in the face of meltdown mode is this: we're still in early days, both for the season and for Poche. We may get tired of hearing it, but we do have a new manager and it does take time to learn a new philosophy. We were never going to win the title this year, and 4th place is optimistic at best. Let's lend some grace and patience for the players- here's to hoping we'll turn around the dull play and at least have some excitement, even if the results aren't there.

I'm probably a lot more hopeful/cheerful because I haven't seen the game yet. Anyways, here's to hoping we turn it around! COYS!

Isnotfish: Never mind the match, just read or watch Poch's post match interview. Enough to get your blood boiling(not at Poch, but at the players).
