Great first half. Dier has made a couple of errors but hasn't been "absolutely awful". Dembele and especially Dier have been fantastic (there'll be a gif of Ali nutmegging Modric tomorrow).

We've really played well with a very young team so far. COYS! Lets show Bale what he's missing!
That nutmeg was class. Come on Paddy I know you like him but he was really poor I have to be honest - he was at fault for the goal as well, completely static in his positioning. Though I will also concede Rose should have seen James' run and stuck with him.

However, a very decent showing from a young team against a very strong Real Madrid side.
4 players were at fault for the goal, though I do agree that he doesn't look comfortable in midfield. COYS!
HT- Dier has been terrible - absolutely awful. Best player for us was probably Dele Alli. Wimmer looks decent.
Owen Hargreaves just singled out Dele Alli as our best player in that half.
Our team vs Madrid!

Really like the front four, not sure about the rest. It is a friendly though. Delle Ali Must be out of his mind excited!

COYS!!!!

Dele Alli was playing the likes of Yeovil Town this time last year and now it's Real Madrid - and he's only 18!
Hopefully, a good streaming link pops up. I intend to watch the 1st half.
If you find a good one please post it on my wall!

Hey everyone! Quick update on my big trip. I've made it 2150 miles so far, but have about 500 left to go still. I'm going to miss the first few matches, so kick United's ass for me while I'm out in the woods next weekend.

Reminder that you can find my journal here: http://trailjournals.com/thebrain

P. S. Thanks to those of you that signed the guestbook. It means a lot to know people are following along.

COYS!

This is freaky. I just read a few updates yesterday, about how you started and had a quiet laugh about you being so happy to soak your feet that you even put up a pic. Would never be able to do what you are doing bud. I didn't know there was a guestbook, will certainly sign up for that.

Major respect, and best wishes for the remaining part of your trip. Too bad Dr.Beaker wasn't called Pinky, or we'd have the adventures of Pinky and The Brain :D
Enjoy yourself pal

Good luck mate, great job
The home page of the team has changed its background to purple. Third Kit launch soon. After the underwhelming home kit and (in my opinion) horrible second kit, hoping the third kit is the purple leaked one!
It's got a date now, it's out tomorrow, so we don't have to wait long, lol
It is already 4th here. Why can't I see it already?!
I don't think it will be midnight in the UK, I think they will release some time during the 5tg
You and your brutal logic, Rogue. The death of this dream is on your conscience !

Expecting it to be worn for the Audi Cup match today
Squad for Audi Cup:

Michel Vorm
Hugo Lloris
Luke McGee

Kieran Trippier
Kyle Walker
Danny Rose
Ben Davies
Eric Dier
Federico Fazio
Toby Alderweireld
Kevin Wimmer
Jan Vertonghen

Nabil Bentaleb
Ryan Mason
Harry Winks
Dele Alli
Mousa Dembele
Tom Carroll
Josh Onomah
Christian Eriksen
Erik Lamela
Nacer Chadli

Harry Kane
Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino says Roberto Soldado is part of his plans, even though the striker has been linked with a move to Villarreal.

Speaking ahead of the Audi Cup, Pochettino said: "Soldado is our player and is in our plans."

Interesting. Why is he not in the squad then?
Probably just insurance, just in case the transfer falls through, doesn't do the player any bonuses if he says "oh, he's leaving soon". Decreases both his confidence and market value. Pretend he's the most important piece of your transfer window, like every manager out there :D
So we have 1 striker, we open the season to one of the strongest sides and our only striker will play 4 and 3 days before the game, riduuclous
+2
I think it is being done with the express intention of hurrying Baldini into the purchases. We either sign a new striker and midfielder, or we go into these games with youngsters instead of Adebayor and Soldado. It makes sense in a twisted way.
Looks like a pretty unbalanced side when you look at squad lists.
Surely a striker has to be priority over a DM now it looks like Soldado and Adebayor are leaving.
Defensively it looks great: 2 decent full backs for both sides and 4 CBs, but after that it kinda looks like someone's sneezed on the tactics board.

****!!!!!

Oduwa probably has a broken ankle in a 2-0 win against Stevenage.

@(#$@&#(@#$)!!!
Just saw that ffs
f*****g hell! There goes 1 season of development for the lad. Hope he bounces back soon.

EDIT: What's the source, Mag?
official website says, he was knocked-out for a while, but regained place in the bench for 2nd half.

Think someone just jumped to conclusions after watching him get stretchered off.

He's fine, was a head injury but has had a scan that says he's alright! Apparantly he scored an amazing solo goal from the left of attack as well. Really excited about this guy!

Cheers Paddy. Glad the injury wasn't as bad as feared.

I share your excitement about him, but it does look like he's destined for a loan. Not getting picked for Pre-season seems to be a strong hint. He only managed a League two outing so far. Hopefully a good loan this time!
I just watched that Spurredontv rant about Sol Campbell and can I just say I think it's a disgrace. That guy in the video is a delusional moron for thinking those things about him and the way spurs fans treated him after he moved is utterly shameful and makes us look really bad.

Dislike a player for leaving us as much as you want but if you defend how we as fans treated him then you're defending homophobia, racism and general bad taste, and just look like a fool.
Get some perspective.
Eh? Doesn't connect. I don't recall him defending homophobia and racism, or even how the extreme fans treated him, in general. Pathetically butt-hurt and verbally abusive, maybe, but none of those terrible things.

I was laughing the whole rant. Was I defending homophobia and racism? :/
f**k Sol Campbell
+5
Andy, fans(as a collective) have always been bordering(crossing) on the acceptable. Look at the chants you hear from all places. Banter is just a loosely used word for showing that if you're not us, then anything is fair game.


As far as Sol goes, I'm sure he would have got the same sort of s**t if he was black, brown, white, whatever color is applicable. Nothing to do with race, more to do with how he left.
+2
I just think the guy doing the video is so absurdly blinkered and biased he can only look at it in a tribal mentality without looking at it from Sols view as a footballer. We all too often forget the human side.
In the video he says this:
Sol said:
Everything at Arsenal was better at the time - players, management, mentality, facilities.
Move needed to make to improve as player and person.
Best thing for himself.

The guys Retort:
we offered you everything, 100k a week, other clubs also wanted you - but you went to arsenal because you didn't want to leave North London.

My response? It seems perfectly logical when you put it that way.
What Sol said is hard to deny - Arsenal were top 2 team at the time and Spurs had never finished higher than 7th or in the bottom 7 since start of premier league. The utter definition of mid table team. We were poorly run back then.

"We offered you everything - 100k a week"
So what does that show? We offered him loads - yet still he decided to leave because he wanted to achieve something. It wasn't about money.
And who can argue against that? He won 2 league titles, once as the key defender in the only ever unbeaten team. He also won 3 fa cups in that time.
Spurs won nothing, finishing the league 9th, 10th, 14th 9th and 5th while Campbell was there. So can you blame him?

Then the guy in the video patronisingly said its because he didn't want to move out of North London. Again, so what?

Basically i thought the guy said nothing valid or useful, and just went all sweary for viewer hits.

Who doesn't want to achieve things in their career? A footballer has about 15 years to get everything they want from the game.
Campbell had clearly shown that he was a great player, capable of achieving things at the top level level, and Spurs couldn't match that at the time. That isn't Sols fault.

--
The homophobia / racism thing was a side comment on my view generally about the whole Sol Campbell situation, not that video in particular.
Just saying some of the horrid things that guy has had slung at him is so unnecessary and pretty vile stuff.
His brother actually got a year in prison for reacting to some spurs fans who were ripping into him. People take things too far and just because we support a club doesn't mean we should condone horrible actions.

Andy, one of the characteristic features of supporting a team IS tribal mentality.

I am a rationalist(just like you), so I get what you're saying. I understand why he moved, but he could have moved to United & saved himself the trouble of what was likely to follow. The thing about idolizing players is people expect them to care for you too, rather naively.

My conclusions.
Do the fans go overboard with the hate? Yes
Will it stop? Probably not
Could he have avoided it? I think so.
+1
He was our captain, we loved him, came through our youth system and he was an absolute beast. Him being such a boss CB is why the hate will never end. We hate him because we loved him.

2 weeks before the end of the season he told all of us he was staying, here's the clip and you can tell he is blatantly taking the piss. He knew what he was doing and he knew there would be a backlash

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aY6x18wgbxI

He mugged us all off and I have no sympathy for him. The amount of abuse as a kid I and many others had to put up with in school because of him lol. The banter was horrible.

This is nothing to do with him being black and nothing to do with him being gay. His sexual preference is his choice, he can do what he wants.
+3
I don't even understand rivalry. To give an example, I don't even get the India vs Pakistan Cricket rivalry ( and this was considering I was very close to joining the Millitary back when both countries were at war).

This aspect of football and sport in general, will always baffle me.

Not exactly pertinent to Sol Campbell (I'll readily admit that I have no real interest in following that flame war), but the average football fan down the pub always blasts the manager/president for not offering enough money to sign a target who goes on to sign a contract extention... yet the same fan expects our players to remain loyal on the bench even when a CL club come calling with a much better contract. A football fan always does have it both ways.Very difficult to reason with.
+1
If you dive into history and grass root level rivalry, there's a lot that can be said, and feelings can run very high. There's been so much s**t between Arsenal and Tottenham, much of it aggravated by the gooners - starting with the very moment they moved into the area. It probably wouldn't make sense to most people who didn't walk in those peoples shoes. In England the football club was often the one thing people were passionate about, while day to day life could be a struggle.
Much can be said about Sol Campbell but a lot of people felt it like a serious slap in the face. The rivalry with Arsenal was already tough at the time and it was made even worse with that move. That he since repeatedly has come out in the media with the most lame statements has made him even more of a hate object amongst the hardcore Spurs fans.
What's happening with Aaron Lennon?
And what about Andros Townsend?
Lennon's being moved, sadly. He's training with the U21s. Townsend is injured, will be out for a couple of weeks more.
It should be the other way around IMO
