    No particular order

    1) I desperately want us to win the Fa cup more than i want to finish in the top 4 as its been far to long since we've won it.

    2) Poch doesn't deserve as much stick as he is currently getting(not talking about on here).

    3) Our attempt to provide backup/competition for Kane was a woeful failure, still far to much pressure heaped on his shoulders.

    4) Rose is even more instrumental for us then certainly i realised, we are going to get constantly taken advantage of down that side while he's out.

    5) Lamela might not be everyone's cup of tea but he brings that something different and that we are crying out for right now.

    6) Dier is no longer a defender

    7) Sissoko???????????????????????????????£30million What the fu*k were we thinking?.

    We need top 4, we have to stay consistently top 4 to keep and attract better players

    Fa cup would be nice

    Poch doesnt deserve the hate

    Need to stop spending big money on uncreative dummies

    We will hit form again soon

    1- Our transfer policy is shit
    2- Pochettino will walk if/when an ambitious club comes knocking
    3- On one hand Pochettino impresses the hell out of me, on the other hand he frustrates the hell out of me
    4- I think we may win the FA cup
    5- Unless we show some balls we won't get top four
    6- I hate Liverpool so much
    7- Repeat number one

    1. The transfer policy needs a complete overhaul, starting with proper funding commensurate with a top 6 club.
    2. Poch is very naive in certain matches - has he not heard of the phrase 'parking the bus' when it is required.
    3. Spurs will not finish in the top 4 and possibly not in the top 5.
    4. Next season will be disastrous with us playing home games at Wembley.
    5. Janssen is a dead duck.
    6. Dier is a poor back four player.
    7. Lloris needs to learn fast how to distribute a ball properly.

    1) FA Cup final (at least) and top four would be a good season, EPL title not for a few years still.
    2) Lamela is sorely missed; Son is all too often proving to be just another Pavlyuchenko (nice guy but not exactly a superstar)
    3) Sissoko is sorely present. At 30 mil. he has got to be the worst buy in my lifetime, price, age and PL-experience considered and I would kill to have Bentaleb back instead.
    4) Lloris is a world class shot stopper but can't pass or deliver a ball to save his life; he mustn't try
    5) Poch IS the future; in 1-3 years from now we'll have a serious shot at the title and have overtaken a Wenger-less Arsenal in the league
    6) We have the best team (first XI) in my lifetime, unfortunately our bench is lacking quality; Keep Worm and the young'uns (Winks, Carter-Vickers, Onomah), but Sissoko, Janssen and Davies (and Fazio, to be sure) can go
    7) COYS - Always believe, no matter how Spursy it looks!

    1) Poch's plans only work when every single of his best 11 is fit. Everything goes to shit with just 1 player missing could be Rose, Kane, Mousa, Eriksen, Walker, Alli, whoever. It shouldnt be like this.
    2) Lamela has become a better player while not playing. Hes not amazing , neither is he shit. But when we are playing badly and he hasnt played, it seems people start to think he will save us.
    3) Levy is getting Levyed (or should it be Ashleyed) a lot lately with transfers. Which idiot wants to sell Chadli, Bentaleb etc and instead buy Janssen and Sissoko. Whoever's idea it was should be fired.
    4) We will very likely finish either 4 or 5. I dont think predicting lower is sensible even with this bad patch of form
    5) I want us to win the Europa league over fa cup or top 4. Same reward as top 4 but a lot more prestigious than an fa cup.
    6) We could have not spend on Janssen/Sissoko and instead blown 50-60m on Mahrez which would have been way better.
    7) Danny Rose please get well soon.

    1) I like watching Lesbian porn

    2) I fancy a roast chicken

    3) I'm still trying to get my head round the amount of ppl who waited for the oyster barriers to close before tapping

    4) I'm currently standing outside a house worth £40 mill and wondering why you need a house that big.

    5) Still amazed that the Patriots came back.

    6) I should be making more money than I am currently.

    7) I don't think Spurs are playing that well at the moment but hopefully things'll pick up and that I shouldn't panic too much!

    Totally agree. And it's linked to a years old problem that just seem to continue in its unsatisfactory way... Fazio? Remember even Holtby and Stambouli?... Paulinho?... Soldado?... Numerous duds! And we hapilly let go of Chadli, who always gave 100 per cent and had a priceless knack of scoring goals? Siggurdson too, who I always thought had a special permanent class about him?... You see the overall pattern and there's a lot of blunders, way too many. And I won't even go into the insane decision to spend a fortune on Sissoko...

    1) I hope we win the league (once in my lifetime)
    2) Sissoko was probably a waste of cash but I don't really blame poch for that one. He's a class player who isn't performing, he needs to step it up.
    3) Its nice outside.. I want to go fishing
    4) I still have a picture of AVB as my avatar.
    5) Poch is the man
    5b) I think we often forget the Identity we had as a club for all those years, compared to where we are at now.
    6) We have the youngest and best english talent in our squad.
    6b) I hope southgate uses this to his/our advantage by making walker/rose/dier/kane/alli the spine of his team.
    7) I need to go fishing...

    There will always be numerous duds. That's not a sign of a failed transfer policy. Now Soldado and Sissoko were both poor purchases that were foreseeable ahead of time which is different. Those transfers were real eggs.

    You have rose colored glasses on if you remember Chadli as a hard worker.

    My thoughts:

    1) I am going skiing some hopefully I can put these cup games out of my mind for a week
    2) Something is up with Poch and Levy. Is he off come summer? Does he know we are selling Alli or something? I gotta funny feeling.
    3) This team needs a leader on the pitch. WTF guys?
    4) Kane looks injured. Just not right imo.
    5) Alli should dominate more than he does. Sometimes he is just lost out there
    6) we need Rose and Vert desperately
    7) Poch needs to decide AHEAD of time which matches are important. Nothing wrong with playing the kids in Europa or a cup if that's how you feel. He is just too willy nilly. Make a decision and stick to it.

    If we're talking about transfer policy, I've been critical of it of late but some of the names mentioned are very easy to criticise in hindsight. Players like Soldado, Paulinho, Rebrov, these guys were all very impressive for their respective clubs before they joined us.

    It's very hard to predict how they'll get on in a different team, all of those I mentioned, came with a huge amount of excitement from the fans, excited at what they could do but they just didn't work out, it's a shame but they weren't necessarily bad signings, it's just unfortunate they didn't work out for us.

    I bet no one went 'oh that's a bad signing' when they signed for us, some players just don't fit and unfortunately it seems we've been on the wrong end of some of those signings.

    1) Overall reasonably pleased with what Poch has done so far at the club.
    2) We should play 3-4-2-1 on most occasions.
    3) Danny Rose is absolutely vital for the football we want to play and has been dearly missed in recent weeks.
    4) We need to sign a very good centre-back who can play with Toby & Jan in a back three (Dier is decent, but not good enough if you really want to compete with the big boys)
    5) Winks is gonna be a key player for us in the future.
    6) Lloris is a fantastic goalkeeper, but his footwork remains shocking.. Are they even working on that?
    7) COYS.

    Hmmm. Not sure about that because Spurs employ countless scouts and carry out countless checks on players before they are signed. There are always going to be one or two that don't make the grade, but not to the extent that we have seen at Spurs in the past three years. In addition to the three you mentioned there are Janssen (Poch now admits he isn't up to scratch), Sissoko, Capoue, N'Koudou (a rare sighting), and others. There is a definite failing somewhere or other and it needs sorting.

    Reminiscing: I loved those words from some pillock at Spurs upon selling Bale, when he said, "We've sold Elvis and bought The Beatles" and he was serious.

    Yep, good idea. It's like living in communist Russia here sometimes - mustn't express a view that will upset others. I thought we were beyond all that when the geezer from Dorset and a couple of others stopped posting and insulting anyone who disagreed with them.

    Janssen scored 28 goals last season, yes in an inferior league but still enough goals to suggest he could make it, Capoue was ligue 1 player of the season, the season before we bought him, again signs to suggest he's a promising player.

    Of course we've made mistakes, what club hasn't, I'm more pissed at the players we've supposedly missed out on.

    I've supported Spurs long enough to remember when we looked forward to only having four poor performances in a row. Every team goes through a lean patch - I bet the dippers aren't clamouring to sack Klopp, yet they went through a horrible patch before beating us!

    Yes (duh) comment made in haste.:oops: But he could always nick a vital goal, which isn't an observation you could ever level at Janssen.

    I haven't seen a clamour on here for Poch to be sacked.
