“Titty bar Tottenham”
So who has the answer then ? Not me..

I’m not even sure I’ve got the right question anymore..

We moved HR on, yeah we all knew he had plenty of faults about him and was at times tactically naive but what he lacked tactically he made up ten fold in his man management skills with the boys, however deep down we all knew his man to man skills could only get us so far, even so it still doesn’t explain why the club moved him on, because to this day I’ve still NOT heard the club come out and tell us WHY ??

Now don’t get me wrong this isn’t a cheap dig at AVB coz things aren’t quite going to someones plan just yet, it’s just another of those un-answered important questions the Club seem to dodge from time to time.

Why am I bringing this up again ?

Well, i can’t talk for you all but i assume a change in manager was ment to take us to the so called next level ? But WHAT the hell is this next level ? Because the way I see it from the sacking of HR the next level must be 3rd place or above but being brutally honest who ever the new manager was going to be that is a pretty tall order, Right ?? A new man needs some time, time to get to know staff, players and even fans expectations.

So as I’ve said in my previous writings if the club are to be REAL serious contenders for the top pots on offer then not only do we have to start the buying of new players BEFORE the season starts but we also need to decide on WHO and how much we’re prepared to spend way before we actually try to go out and do it. We get linked with the biggest names every year yet as fans we’ve come to expect this without the actual signing of them, yet this time although very late in the window we truly thought Moutinho was coming, big money, frantic phone calls, is he? ain’t he? it was all going on but true to form all at the LAST minute, and whilst this was going on we’re moving players out getting a Goalkeeper in that we’re not even sure we actually want to play ? Also Bringing in Dempsey and Co too, BUT it’s been said that the BIGGEST monetary deal in the clubs HISTORY fell short due to the CLOCK and some PAPERWORK ?? I mean come on, we’re trying to spend “£20 odd MILLION pounds +” as if it’s a 5 minute trolley dash round Primark.. Surely the size of the fee ment it was worth at least a few days advance negotiating ???

And then that I’m sure leads us in part to where we are today…

Iv said before and will again AVB wasn’t my choice but I’m prepared to accept he’s here, so in turn i want him to succeed, we’ve come to like his passionate goal celebrations not to mention he looks dapper in his Spurs suit too, but when there seems to be a lack of common sense at the club you gotta start to feel for the bloke when it isn’t quite working, don’t get me wrong I’m very happy with the signings we’ve made (although I’m not convinced Dempsey actually wants to be here – he just doesn’t look like he wants it enough) as we all know he wanted to go to the Scouse, and yes as much as he’s a Ratboy Modric IS missed and so is VDV, but I’m certain the players we’ve brought in make up for what’s gone out although we still LACK that extra spark. Ok Parker hasn’t touched a ball yet and neither has Kaboul, Dembele is a class act and Sandro’s just turning into a god but I can’t help but look to our pissing about on the last day with the Mouthino deal and now it could well be costing us now…

In games we have loads of the ball but we’re not making too many clear-cut chances on goal, we still look edgy and suspect when under attack but although the players look like they enjoy playing together their not looking too confident.. would Mouthino have given us that bit of belief we seem to be missing ? Would he have been the man to open up openents when they park up ?would he have found those extra pass’s giving us the clearer chances we’re not making? and would he have helped calm the ship at the back when under pressure giving the defence and the whole side that extra confidence we’re missing at the moment ?? Coz if the answers yes then surely that signing’s got to be worth to the club £25-30 million over the next 4 or 5 seasons of his contract competing in champions league ??? The massive fee would of taken care of its self because of the cash generated in the competition and I’d bet my house on it that AVB would agree!

So come on Daniel, get that book out on January 1st and finish what you couldn’t in August, then you can just sit back and watch as the team perform and the money rolls in..

As for AVB, although early days he’s already starting to frustrate me a little, course I want the bloke to do well, I want him to be able to stick his fingers up at Chelsea, and the media haters, but the truth is he doesn’t seem to be learning ? Playing 1 up top at home ? Not starting Defoe against City 3 days after scoring a hat trick ? Keep swapping Keepers ? Making incorrect substitutions ? (Continuing to go with Tom the HuddleFro when we aren’t in control of games towards the end) these are basic mistakes he’s making, however if he’s learning from them then great, but is he ??

We Have a very good squad, we have a manager with plenty of potential, BUT somewhere in between we’re lacking something and that’s the question i no longer have an answer for ? I’ve scratched my head, moved ideas around, put in players, taken some out, changed the manager, even changed the chairman, but i never quite find the answer ???

It’s like when some players sign for Spurs, regardless where they came from big club or small it’s as if they say “jesus I’ve made it now” then they seem to just run around pretending to be a footballer, I’ve seen it so many times over the years. The optimism and the potential but no end product ?

Spurs, We’re like a TITTY BAR..

You go there knowing you shouldn’t

You know it’s gonna cost you a few quid

You get there full of beans and excitement

You and your mates are all up for it

It starts and though you shouldn’t you get exited

A wiggle here and a step over there and your thinking WOW

You start to get a bit loud as the action builds

and your starting to think your gonna score

BUT Full time’s called

And that’s it.. It’s all over!

Your dreams got the better of you again, your now standing outside in the cold, deflated, Skint and wondering where it went wrong ???

You know you shouldn’t have – but you did coz you just couldn’t help it…

YOU’LL GO BACK THOUGH – WE ALL DO, because maybe, just maybe it’ll all work out lovely next time!!!
