What's going on?

I’m in one of those places at the moment. Much like Dexter Morgan (in the hit US tv show ‘Dexter’) has a dark passenger that lusts for blood (he’s a serial killer, but a good one, he only kills people that deserve it like...other serial killers) I also have dark thoughts. Mostly about ordering a kebab at 11pm or attempting to induce lucid dreams that consist of me scoring last minute winners away to the scum then diving into the stands to ‘sort ‘em out’. Although I could be more like Dexter. Kill other bloggers. Alas, never red, so lusting for blood is a step too far. Click whores, you're safe for now.

Yes ladies and gentlemen, it’s international break time and I am suffering from a creative lull. There’s not that much going on to be fair. Here's some snippets of things that might muster up a discussion or two.



Might as well. I tuned in with 30 minutes gone, caught the goals, sort of half watch the second half. Was all very mediocre but that extra bit of quality allowing us to comfortably pick off San Marino. To be honest, I found myself watching more of the Wales v Scotland game. Football irony in your face with Gareth Bale’s winner, leaving Adams in his wake as he finished brilliantly to add to a dubious penalty which saw him win the spot kick by tripping himself up in the area. It was against the Scottish so allow it. Defoe sat on the bench (from what I saw) and Walker and Lennon didn't pick up injuries. Good enough for me. Elsewhere, three of the back four (Smith, Caulker, Rose) of the England U21 side were Spurs. Some of that.


Manager of the Month award

So Andre Villas-Boas had the better record than winner David Moyes? Who has the better beard and why isn’t a monthly award given out for that instead? Talking of which, I’m sporting hobo chic at the moment. I look rough and I like it. The fact I’m even talking about my irreverent fashion sense pretty much tells you everything you need to know about my opinion on the Manager of the Month award.



The Olympic Stadium and Tottenham. It’s like stepping in dog **** and no matter how hard you try to wash it out you swear you can still smell the stink. Britain, gold medals, glorious scenes aside...back in the real world if we had to play away from the Lane for even half a season, would rather Wembley than a structure not purpose built for the sport our team actually plays. Hopefully the original plan (of playing at the Lane with building work on-going) sees fruition. Unless the OS has purpose built caravans shifted onto the running track to double up as executive boxes for corporate hospitality. That’ll work.



Win against Villa. Noel Gallagher. Diving. Walker. How to get out of doing something with your missus and going to Tottenham instead. Midfield beasts. Cannibalism. And trikes. Click here for it.

Was at the England game last night,

Yes please to a tempoary home at wembley, love the stadium and love the commute home even more (3 stops on the jubilee line). Leave the white Elephant in stratford to the east end mugs.

Lennon continued his seasons form against a very poor opposition, 2 assists aint a bad return.Walker sadly looked shakey like he has all season,, he seem sto have lost the ability to make a simple pass, and is fast becoming a one trick speedy pony.

Roll on next week, I hate weekends at work without a spurs game to watch. and have a good feeling about the Chelsea game

Maloney admitted tripping Bale. Rejoice!

For Maloney to admit, then that camera angle lies - so good on him. You can see there's a brush of legs but never looks enough for Bale to fall - but if the player said he fouled him...rejoice and the end.

Where did the Stratford bit come from - I saw someone else mention it in the week? There was also an article that mentioned the planning permissions are not finalised for the development yet....

I still stand by my ultimate doomsday sceanrio that ENIC / AEG will make a cash offer for the OS that the govt will be unable to turn down. Everyone knows WH can't afford or come close to filling it, the other bids have no financial viability, and to get a few hundred million (or whatever) will make the govt look good to the tabloids for a few days.

West Ham deserve the O/S......................'Orrible Shite........that is!
Why should any government want to tarnish the O/S after so many happy memories to be followed by the Shite Cart is beyond me.
