Spurs get lucky after screw up.

We lost to Fulham yesterday after Jol made a mistake and played Rasiak over Defoe while the ref made even larger mistakes ignoring a blatent penalty and red card offenses and then the player who should have been having an early bath scoring the winner in injury time. You could not make it up and I hope the dreadful Howard Webb is exposed in the coming months and is promptly demoted out fo the Premiership where he is not up to the job.

Luckily though, all our rivals either lost or drew today with West Ham doing us the biggest favour by beating the scum at The Library. However, had we beaten Villa and Fulham, like we should have done in both, we would now be five points better off, a massive 9 points ahead of the scum. Other results have let us off the hook this week but I think that it could come back to haunt us at the end of the season, especially with our difficult run in.

We bought Moany Murphy in from Charlton at the end of yesterday but I am not entirely sure where he will play. Ghaly also joined, a tough tackling midfielder to replace Brown and probably Davids in the long term. Murphy could be the key to getting Defoe and Keane firing togetehr though as he can put a wicked pass through when necessary and most importantly those passes will be along the floor. Lets face it, we are a bit long ball at the moment and this signing could change things.

Rasiak showed once again that he is shit and I hope to never see him in a Spurs shirt again. Defoe WILL leave in the summer if he can't get back in the team soon and everyone can see that Defoe is miles better than Rasiak, even when he has the strop. Sort it out Jol as the scum won't keep on giving us favours. We must beat Charlton on Saturday and Defoe must start with Keane if we are to achieve the three points.

COYS!

It is true we heve been lucky, and that we should be alot better off than we are, and that we need to get points from our upcoming games to stay where we are. We have 14 games, the next 7 bring us to the end of March when we will know alot more and this is our chance. Wins from the next 3 make things look very good, but more dropped points, and we will ultimately fail. We are missing Mido so badly, as Rasiak is hopeless and Defoe should play on Sunday. I think Murphy will have an important role, as he wil most likely be deployed at the top of a diamond, with Carrick (centre) Jenas (right) Davids (Left)ideally. This will give us more creativity and will hopefully give Keane and Defoe the chances they aren't getting.
It's not doom and gloom, and we stand a great chance of something big, the next 2 months will tell just how big. One things certain though, we must keep Mido fit as it shows massively how much we miss him, when he's not there.

i agree with paxton , it is essential that rasiak is removed from the premises immeadiately.

i can understand why jol has persisted with him, but enough is enough. we cannot rely on the enemy fouling up in order to disguise our own campaign coming right off the rails.

defoe is off in the summer just as keane was forever off somewhere or another when he wasn't playing 1st team football.

the only possible suggestion i can make is to play him. forget the tall man plan and let him play from the kick off. he may not want to stay at a club that keeps him on the bench, but he wants to highlight his cause to sven.....and score goals, so play him.

i would be happier watching defoe look for his form over the next two games than watch rasiak fanny about humiliating himself for another two minutes.

wigan is rescheduled for the 19th is it?

Defoe is a World Class Striker who deserves first team football for him to get sharp he was pretty much the only spurs player to actually shoot at the Fulham Goal. Robbie Keane is great but will never be better than Jermain. Jol should persevere with The two shorter guys in the games in which Mido is not able to play. I also believe that all 3 players could fit in with Keane playing off of Mido. Sadly Rasiak is just devoid of any confidence and enough talent for a top premiership team like Tottenham. Personally after seeing how well future England Star Tom Huddlestone did I would like to see Lee Barnard given at least a substitutes place and a run out because he is actually scoring at least one goal every reserve match. Like many other Spurs Fans I was extremely frustrated with our past two results but we just look naff without Mido. We needed another big guy and to cash in on whatever Rasiak can be sold for (if anything).

FOR CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

(68 pts)

Charlton 3pts
Sunderland 3pts
Blackburn 3pts
Wigan 3pts
Bolton 3pts
West Brom 3pts
Man City 3pts
Birmingham 1pt
Newcastle 1pt
Everton 1pt
Man Utd 1pt
Arsenal 1pt
West Ham 1pt
Chelsea 0pt

If we drop more than 5 points we have little hope of Champs League unless Arsenal/Bolton have a bad finish. If we drop 8 points from this we may struggle for UEFA Cup. Anything between 20-27 points will get us into europe.

No true spurs fan can argue with Jol, he has been amazing for us, he doesnt make snap decisions with team selection, keano has scored a few so he gets the run out for a while, fair enough. defoe should start against charlton with keane, and we will take 3 points from them comfortably, hopefully barnard will be on the bench and will come on for the last 15 minutes.

That looks pretty good but I think

Charlton 3pts - correct
Sunderland 3pts - easily
Blackburn 3pts - should do
Wigan 3pts - probably
Bolton 3pts - more likely 1 point Bolton are so strong
West Brom 3pts - yep
Man City 3pts - yep
Birmingham 1pt - maybe 3pts
Newcastle 1pt - at the very least
Everton 1pt - yep
Man Utd 1pt - hopefully the minimum
Arsenal 1pt - would be satisfactory although if West Ham can go there and beat them we should be able to leave the SCUM with a parting memory of a North London Derby Defeat at H******y
West Ham 1pt - at least
Chelsea 0pt - Sadly almost definate

Rasiak was the problem last night. He has no ability to hold the ball, and bring others into play like Mido does. He cannot get close to winning a header, and is nowhere to be seen when Lennon puts a ball into the box. It is our biggest mistake we've made, and Rasiak makes Kanoute look like a great player in comparison. Mido would have scored in both the last 2 games, and we would be 3 points behind ManU. We must put this right and win on sunday.

I am gutted that we have brought in another right footed central midfielder when Pompey have brought in a genius in D'Alesandro who would have solved our problem on the left, he scores goals, and his brilliant flicks would have given Defoe and Keane the chances that they are just not getting at the moment. I leve i n South America and have followed him for around 4 years now and the kid is an imense talent. We really missed out.

What worries me most is that we have, with other results going our way, done the hard work in getting into 4th position. Are we about to throw it all away? I certainly hope not.

The CL places (mainly 4th) are up for grabs and more open than it has been for ages, we are lucky enough in England to be granted 4 spots for the Biggest Club Competition in football.
So we must consolidate this position and do our very best to stay in the top 4 otherwise will we be to attract the TOP players in the world to N17 come the summer?
Let's not Fuck It Up

What Jol has done since his arrival has been fantastic and it's great that we can talk about Spurs as genuine CL contenders and brag to Le'Arse who are below us !!

We are definetely going places are why not let it happen now, not next year or 1 year in Uefa Cup to 'gain experiance'

The stats show that Keane and Defoe can't play together. Eye-sight tells us all that Rasiak can't play with himself.

Don't want to harp on about how sale of Fredi will come back to haunt us (was happy to fight for place and not even in African Nations). We really missed out by not bringing in Ashton for £3m when we had the chance.

With Barnard, same problem regarding height. Surprised we sent El Ham back to Derby, as he looks the part.

However, trust in Jol and hopefully pull off coup by signing Dirk Kuyt in the summer.

The aim was Europe. 5th place would be a grand achievement, although it easily could have been 4th with an adequate 4th choice striker.

Beware Blackburn.

Love to the Lane and Big Martin.

Robbo of course, Kelly is not too good, Stalteri is solid, King and Dawson definately. Naybet is useful. Lee isn't yet the player Jol said he would be. Bunjy is not bad but not really ever fit. Murphy is a quality player, Jenas is a goalscoring midfielder. Davids is real quality as looks Huddlestone. Carrick i believe is a real star and he grows in stature every game. Ghaly is an unknown quality and Marney is decent. lennon is an amazing prospect who needs Walcock! Reid is great for Ireland but under pressure at Spurs, Jackson is not quick at all. Mido is apparently the heart and sole of the attacking line, Barnard should be given a chance. Keane and Defoe are proven goalscorers and need to be kept for us to be a real force.

Emre??? Why and how... he's only just joined Newcastle, he's a whingeing brat, and he's dirty tackler. Besides being injured a lot lately.
Makes me chuckle that teams that are struggling, buy players that can 'TACKLE' and put themselves about. Thing is there's no point in having that until you can actually keep the ball longer than 2 mins per game.

If you can't, then your hard tacklers fly about getting sent off or injured, and you find yourself in 14th place like Newcastle. Passers get you out of trouble not cloggers.

I don't believe there is a problem playing our so called 'little guys' up front together. (when Mido is not playing) Remember a couple of lads called Archibald and Crooks?

If anyone saw us lose 1-0 at home to Man Utd last season, it colourfully depicts how we cannot play Defoe and Keane together against a solid defence.

The Villa game recently told us a similar story against a less-than-average outfit.

Sure we would like to see them play together, because it makes us feel soft and mushy inside to see our two little supreme stars together on the pitch....but the reality is - it doesn't work.

Archibald wasn't as small as Defoe though is he. The whole point is presence. We need some punch up front and Mido gives us that. Keane and Defoe cant do that and when they play together it seems as if we have no-one upfront. Carrick cant find them from so deep, and so Murphy beinga litgtle more advanced will hopefully do that, and it may be a matter of another ingrediant making it work between them. Archibald scored headers, Defoe I only remember scoring one header for us. I can see him going and us replacing him with someone who suits us better. Keane and Mido can play together and we should build on that instead of having one unhappy at all times

I must admit i got fed up yesterday with all of the sideways passing when we got near the box - there is no cutting ground pass to set the strikers in and on the rare occasion that there was the strikers were so surprised that they failed to react quick enough. One good point Huddlestone looked to have vast potential - cool head for a kid.

Rasiak's game is suited to the lower leagues. Needs more time on the ball than Premiership defenders will give him.

I was embarassed for him when (unchallenged) he rose for a header and totally missed the ball. Realistically, it's very unamusing and his ineptitude could cost us glory.

Heaven forbid if Mido picks up a serious injury!

Having Teddy back would have provided a much better option.

He is a disaster for us and will continue to be so.

Why is it a definate that Defoe will move to the Kop at end of season, regardless of what happens before? Where are you getting this information from?!? I know lots of you think we should cash in on him, but I think he has awesome potential. I also feel abit sorry for him as he spent all last summer working on his team game, and he started the season brilliantly. Then he loses his place and now even when he scores after being brought on he cant even get his place back. Now he lacks match fitness and doesnt stand a chance of getting it back if Jol continues not to play for more than one game. I know I keep bangin' on about this but its really aggrevating that he should be playing but is even losing a place to Rasiak! I wish Rasiak all the best, but he is not doing what we need.

For the record, there is no chance we will sign Kuyt or Torres if we only reach Uefa. Surely all of you realise that? Would you leave CL teams for a Uefa team?

It's ironic that Defoe was told to change his game and has gone from hero to zero by doing so. Against Villa when he went through on goal, he would have normally belted it into the net...instead he tried to square it to Keane and it went tits up.

So what if he was a bit greedy before? He was better for it.

Liverpool re-signed Fowler because we wouldn't part with him. I'm not so sure they'll get him at the end of the season, particularly if Fowler does well.

Indeed, we may only get the MASSIVE names if we reach the Champs League. But the real concern is whether we could lose our MASSIVE names if we don't get there too.

I agree with some of the earlier comments that D'Alesandro would have been a better buy, even if it was just on loan with a clause to buy him at the end of the season. It would certainly have made more sense that buying Murphy. He seems to be talented and Redknapp was raving about him after his debut.

Though I'm not a Rasiak fan, I actually felt bad from the flaks he get from some of you...hey...cool it... its only football, you don't have to threaten peoples limps and lives.

We need to get behind our players even if we know they are not playing the standard we wanted.

Th problem partly also to do with Jol's team philo.He obviously think that the big/small man combination is the best way forward.But given the options avialable against fulham, I remeber the only shoot on goal we have is when Defoe is on the pitch.Despite his smaller iszr , he also happened to win more aerial battles than Rasiak.
Till Mido is back,the best option IMO is to use Keane/Defoe, and resorganise our midfield, such as playing Murphy (who I think is a great sigining) at the tip of the diamond.He could thread the killer passes, both Keane and Defoe are looking for.

Results from last night EPL matches shows that the difference bewteen the teams are so small.
Even teams like Blackburn or West Ham are capable of pulling a win over us.
So guys, We have a team good enough to challenge for the CL spot but the difference is only marginal; compared with some other fringe teams such as Bolton and Blackburn.
I don't think we are punching above our own weight or we are lucky as quality usually runs the course of a season and luck generally even themselves out.We have the 4th best team in the EPL thus far and we would continue to have chance IF everyone pull themselves in the same direction.

Agreed that Levy is the best chairman we had for 2 decades at least.Compared to Scholar in the 80's and Sugar in the 90's ; the former the modern equivalent of Peter Risdale and the latter a businessman more than a football man.

Levy is a visionary that took the club forward.The sporting director role was inducted into the EPL by him and the success of Jol and Arnesan (sorry if I have to mention him) is due to Levy's foresight.

How many of you would wake up and remember the mediocrity that we were in for a decade without Levy ?
He may not have spend heavily this Jan but the bid for Torres is the sign of his ambition to bring glory to Spurs.

Torres plays for Athletico Madid who aren't even close to european football, they currently languish in about 10th place in the league.

Play Keane and Defoe on sunday, they must work together in training so i'm sure they can find a solution. Murphy may help with his good passing in advanced positions hopefully this can help Jenas get beyond the last defender running from deeoer positions.

Rasiak is a player running on empty, he has no confidence and knows we have none in him. Thanks Greg but time to go son. At least give Barnard a place on the bench

I can't decipher your opinions of Torres but if it is a criticism, you should note that Wenger was and possibly still is interested in him too.
He called Torres the natural successor to Bergkamp and Wenger don't usually get it wrong (maybe this season !)

He is Atletico Madrid youngest ever captain and from from what I see him in the La Liga, has star quality all over him; He tough to shake off the ball and seldom misplaced a pass; a younger version of teddy sheringham.He spell goals too and from what I heard is a model of consistency, which sadly Defoe isn't

We currently are probably three players even two players away from a very good team in my opinion a top left sided player and an out and out goalscorer would do. suggestions would

Left Sided - Should have got Wayne Bridge

Striker - Kuit , Torres.

But what baffels me is we have the hottect striking propoerty in the reserve league at the moment in Barnard and yet we play Rasiak who bless him is not a premiership player! mind boggling.

Defoe has has lots of potential for years but needs to learn to play football the rest of his team mates if he wants to be top drawer. That is the ONLY thing Robbie Keane has over him, he can play a one two and finds the channels better with his off the shoulder running. there is no doubt Defoe is a great instinctive finisher when he is in form, but you need more than that to be top class striker. i cannot remember his last assist or when he was last involved in a greta team move the ended with a goal.

please give an example if you think i am mistaken...

I think some perspective is called for. We ARE still 4th in the premiership (CL place) and still we whinge and whine. Lets face it this is our best season for a decade. If we been 6th or 7th for most of the season and ended up 5th we would all be hailing MJ as the next messiah and everything would be rosey, but because we are actually doing better than expected people are starting to get on MJs back. I for one at the beginning of the season would have settled for european football of any sort. Lets stick together, back the boys and accept that whatever happens we are on the up and next season is the seaon to be really jolly.

Nice to see Zamora get a cracking goal last night, we shouldn't have sold him, he is working hard to show everyone he has got it in the prem, What an attitude.
Mido is sorely missed with the current tactics but maybe like others have said Murphy will give us the other option to play Defoe and Keane (Defoe should be following his example, a true Pro and a credit to the shirt).
I had high hopes for Rasiak after watching him with Derby, but he is a good Championship player and not prem, no way.
If the Murphy option with Defoe and Keane works out do we really need another striker, it's hard enough keeping 3 top strikers happy and well El Ham coming back in the summer we might just have enough.
Murphy I hate to say might be the missing piece in the jigsaw.

And in the sorry, and hopefully unlikely event of Mr.Concrete boots wooden mallet man 'couldn't trap a bag of wet cement' Rasiak showing his sorry ass i will allow for him to start off by using Fatboy Reid as a temporary body sheild so i can find my range first being puting the biggest pile of shyte i have ever seen in the famous lilywhites shirt out of his (and mine) ((and every Spurs fan)) misery.

There seem to be a lot of comments from blind people on this blog which probably accounts for the bad language and threats to anyone who dares to disagree with their point of view.

They are obviously blind because they cannot see any fault with Jol's tactics or team selection and actually think that Mido is a player who "holds the ball up and brings other players into the game"......if only. He cannot head the ball to another teammate and looks about as lethal as Ronny Rosenthal in front of goal.

Yes Jol has improved things but with the players that we have always had that would not be difficult, but the question is can he take it to the next level, and this is where I think he still has much to prove.

He only seems interested in buying mid-field players, has two great wingers in Lennon and Routledge but only plays Lennon when the mid-field injury list is high and has lent out Routledge to Portsmouth....brilliant!

I think if Jol had the choice he would put out the following team each week :Robinson;Carrick Jenas Davids Reid; Tainio Ghaly Huddlestone Murphy; Ziegler and Mido.....that should ensure that we never score a goal but also the other team should not get close to our goal.

For crying out loud we need strikers....that means players who can beat someone, make a yard of space in a crowded penalty area, shoot with enough power to reach the goal and occasionally head the ball into the goal......and we do not have any, not DeFoe,Keane or especially Mido.

We can forget CL this year....we needed to sort out the striker position in the window. Bolton can overtake us easily, but also Balckburn and West Ham are playing positive attacking football and scoring goals for fun....and that doesn't even take into account Arsenal, who will soon be able to concentrate on the league when they get knocked out of Europe and have their African team back.

Sad isn't it, but 7th or 8th place beckons...still that's one better than I predicted at the beginning of the season.

Bring on the abuse!

BTW, if you still haven't know yet, the system in place at WHL, means that Jol don't have total control over players bought and sold.Its a 3 way thing between, Jol, Comolli and Levy...didn't you get his hint in his latest comments about brown departure..."I understand my chairman" "I don't want Brown to go "...
He wants strikers but he can only used what he is given.
As for Bolton overtaking us "easily", try telling that to Sam Allaydace. Ok West Ham and Blackburn scored goals for fun...but there are leaking them for fun too.Else they would be above us isn't it ?
I agree with you though that we are good... but not that good yet.

Can't believe comments like "we need top strikers".
Liverpool would kill for Defoe - £12m wasn't it and ManU were also in for him when they sniffed a chance.
Keane is also top class - his technical ability is up there with Ronaldo (though not maybe Ronaldinho!)
I was at the Villa match and thought they actually benefited from the temporary absence of Mido (much as I love him)
The ball was played quick, on the deck and the mobility of the front 6 was fantastic
We need to give Defoe & Keane a chance to gel
JD is massively short of confidence, not helped by being displaced by the Polish donkey on Tuesday
IMO a tactical mistake by the othertwise excellent BMJ. Let's hope the 2 are reunited on Sunday. Charlton are not a big side (neither are FFC without Bouba Diop) so let's pass them off the park and hopefully get the spirit back where it was after the NUFC game.
4th is definitely still on, but I also think Bolton are now the biggest threat, not the Scum

We should never have let Ziegler go out on loan to Wigan. There has never been a better apportunity for the lad to stake a real clame for a first team place. With Y P Lee away with family trouble, Reid injured for six weeks and no real quality down the left, we could have done with his services.

Keane is not as good as Defoe? Come on, they are not exactly that similar to compare and make such a judgement. In terms of finishing, Defoe may be better than Keane but face it, Defoe isn't as influential as Keane in recent games. As far, Defoe has been a rather selfish player even when he has been playing regularly. Keane on the other hand has learnt to create and beat defenders to create chances for others. Now the problem is there is no one in the box to connect his passes. Play Defoe instead of Rasiak from now onwards. He should be able to regain his form soon. And of course, Barnard should be on the bench, not Rasiak.

Your article makes some decent points but I get the impression you just lifted from other people mainly because you contradict yourself. So you don't know where moany Murphy will fit in??? How can you then say he might be the signing to knit us together, it is just not coherent. He is possible for left side of central midfield but it is probably dependent on other players fitness. He will play central in front of Carrick with Davids left and Jenas right when all are fit, and hopefully we can play football through midfield instead of just bypassing it.

I believe Naybet should replace King if he needs an op on his groin.
Huddlestone has shown he can do a good job protecting the back 4 now too, so I reckon him and Davids would be a solid pairing - shifting Carrick to the right a bit, and Murphy or Jenas over on the left until we can either get one of our loaned wingers back, or get a new one in the summer!

Sorted!

Yes, I agree that Sugar say us from the brink of administration.But my comparison is relative, if you get what I mean.Even Scholar was a good chairman in the 80s through his ambitous efforts to build a stylish spurs team; which made me a fan of spurs then.But at what price ?Profligracy is madness as we can see from our own experince and that of Leeds.
Sugar to be fair did spend money but he is not as savvy as Levy (IMO) in matters concerning football and is too pragmatic for the good of the club.He is more reactive than proactive.
Levy set out with a plan in mind and would not hesitate to change his plans to adapt to the changing competition.
I think he is possibly the only chairman in the EPL who deal directly with players transfer.He attempted to influence stock prices and raise funds for players transfer by share issuance; what more can you ask ?
I have been a fan for 20 years now and I never beem more optimistic about the fate of the club in the right hands.
But my views were never a direct criticism of our previous chairman; I believed the state of a club have to do with opportunites and the environment too, not just how capable the chairman is.

I'll tell you where... suffering like the rest of us in mid-table bullshit but just look at us today and people are stilll giving out. Not only has Martin Jol restored dignity and respect to our club we now have a face for our club and one worthy to lead it and more importantly wants to lead it. He lives and breathes Tottenham which is something we ahve been lacking ofr a long lone time. For the rest of the season just get behind him and the team and who knows what could happen but anything is possible.

Well what have you got to lose playing Barney from the start - if he scores a few on his debut, it will certainly give Defoe a kick up the backside and realise he's got some competetion - instead of looking over to the bench and seeing Rasiak. He really does try hard bless him, but he hasn't got the confidence or talent to cut it. He should go out on loan to sharpen him up, and if that doesn't help, ship him out!

I read Barnard, Jackson and Bunjevcevic are all in Sunday's squad - - - maybe the coaching staff heard my whinges!!

That's 2 left footers that are playing well, and a slightly taller striker who has scored 17 goals for the reserves... You know it makes sense Rodney...

If you actually read the first 2:06 reply you will see that it says and i quote for you Numpty "I share the view that Barnard should be given his chance"

You repied "and why shouldnt barnard be given a chance in the team"
Are you a retard?!!
I DO want him involved but not at the expence of Defoe.
First Mido & Keane, then Rasiak & now Barnard ahead of him?
That will do his confidence good won't it and he really will want to stay after the summer, eh? But i suppose you are one of them fans who thinks we should sell our most natural finisher?

Barnard over Defoe?! Ha Ha Ha KNOB

We have important games ahead and need to pick up points, so throwing in a reserve team player with no apps is not going to save the day or solve our 'problems'
We need proven experienced goalscorers starting at that means Keane & Defoe.

Barnard should replace Rasiak on the BENCH and i as many others would love nothing more than see one of 'our own' on the pitch in the lilywhites but againover Defoe? I don't think so.

If Barnard did start and we lost YOU would probably be one of those knobs that will spout out 'Why the fuck did we start with him'

One of the reasons Keane & Defoe haven't been able to 'gel' is we are used to playing hoof ball to mido and we can't seem to, at the moment, ADAPT to fit them in, but thats what seperates the 'big teams' and i'm sure we will get there especially with passers like Carrick, Murphy and now 'TommyGun' Huddlestone

Against Villa we played on the floor, created chances and looked very positive and attractive, the only difference being their keeper had the game of his life.

So don't start giving me that 'can't play together', "proven" SHIT

But don't worry about it cockjock because when Keane & Defoe start at the weeekend and we win i'll be there cheering us on while you are at home flicking betweeen pop idol and skysports 1
