    So you were just playing with words. Why not just quote me and say “they are durable but not very very durable”. I would’ve agreed with you and we wouldn’t have had to play this tennis again.

    You tried to twist it that I said Kane is not durable. I didn't. If you hadn't we would not have more of this same.

    Also why did you say they're "very very durable" and then tried to claim Kane has played like 50 games in recent seasons? He hasn't.

    Why don't you just own your claims and say you were wrong to say those things, rather than to twist it that I have done something wrong correcting your statements?

    Let’s be real if you want Sp**s to drop out it’s not at this stage.

    Not sure how anyone can claim Kane or Bale aren't injury prone, let alone call them durable. In each of the last two seasons Kane missed 3 months through injury. That is being out for a third of the season.

    Bale hasn't fared that much better. He was sidelined for 6 months in total in last 3 seasons.

    Tried watching the highlights, but not sure what the hell that was. Sp**s were struggling mightily. Brilliant stuff! 1-0 down in the 71st min. Sp**s fans on Fighting Cock were in meltdown mode... :)

    Epic name of their Bulgarian opponents: Lokomotiv Plovdiv. Couldn't get much more farmer league if you tried... Must really have made the squad hungry and their fans happy. The CL final must feel a lifetime away.

    Mourinho + Sp**s = The gift that keeps on giving

    @GDeep™

    American_Gooner informed us that Bale won't play for a month because of injury.

    "Very very durable" you said, how can this happen!? So unfair and unlucky for Tottenham.



    "“However, nobody should expect Gareth Bale to turn out for Tottenham any time soon.

    “It’s our understanding that when he gets here, when he signs, it will be full training for a month and then he’ll be back to full fitness.

    “That makes sense, he’s nursing a knee injury and he hasn’t played regularly for months.”"

    It really is. Was the one good thing about last season before things turned around with the Arteta hire.

    Life-long contract for Mou at Tottenham please!!

    The way things ended for him at Man Utd ,Chelsea and Real Madrid I think the idea of managing Sp**s must have been really appealing for Mourinho (plucky little club who no one really expects to challenge for titles or even win a cup). The pressure to win at those clubs is enormous, with Sp**s if he could get them to finish at 4th place would have been seen as a massive success. He wasn't expected to be backed in the transfer market too, so expectations would stay low. After all every manager needs his own players and a decent amount of money to mold his team.

    To everyone's surprise the usually tight-fisted Levy has been busy buying players for Mourinho, for a fair amount of money too. Since Mourinho's arrival they have signed these players

    Lo Celso
    Bergwijn
    Fernandes
    Hojbjerg
    Doherty
    Bale
    Requilon
    Hart

    They will probably add 1 or maybe even 2 more players before the window closes. That is nearly a whole team of new players. Suddenly expectations are slowly rising. The Sp**s fans were just hoping for a top 4 finish or a possible cup win. Now suddenly they think that should be the minimum aim. The pundits have started to big them up as well.

    This might sound strange but I'm not sure Mourinho is really liking this new environment, he was enjoying being the underdog. Or the little horse as he calls it. Now a massive excuse has been taken away from him ("I wasn't backed with transfers", "this isn't my team" etc).

    Will be interesting to see how he gets on this season. He might actually have a decent season, second season he usually does well. Or considering he has been declining as a top manager, things might already unravel before the inevitable third season implosion.

    Why is the title of this thread still "Let's still all laugh at Tottenham"?

    They've won one single league cup in the last 29 years. Their manager celebrated 6th place as if they'd won the treble. He openly abused their players like Dele Alli and Serge Aurier on camera. He insulted Son who had just received MOTM, like some kind of Kanye West tribute act. They're going on tours of Bulgaria and Macedonia to try to qualify for the Europa League. They're trying to default/cheat their way to trophies by whining about the dimensions of goalposts and paying teams to have covid tests to help them steal league cup wins. They spent £1 billion on a massive replica of a toilet which is now empty apart from their **** football...

    Shouldn't the title be "Let's all laugh at Tottenham"?

    Until we start finishing back above them regularly, I guess... Having said that, we should always be laughing at them regardless.

    Mourinho and Sp**s will be our biggest battle for 4th I think.

    Ole at Utd is simply too poor a manager who will only rely on individual brilliance I think.

    Be interesting to see if they get more in.
    At theoment a couple of fullbacks and Bale.

    If it doesn't change significantly, it'll come down to how fit Kane and Bale manage to stay.

    Happier with our squad to be honest. You can see where it's heading over the next 5 years.
    They're very much planning only for the here and now.

    Son worries me moreso than Bale tbh.

    He seems to be getting better with every passing season and a case can be made for him already being the best left wide forward after Mane and PEA.

    No totally agree. Great player. I excluded him not because he's not at the others level but because on my recollection he has a decent injury record (elbow fracture excluded). Where as, the other two have a recent history of missing a lot of games.
