Entries in quote of the day (3)


Andr√©, keep whispering sweet nothings in my ear

We're reanimating Scott Parker.

"It's difficult for him as he still feels pain and is still disturbed in his recovery. It prevents him from being on the pitch but he has been evolving inside, in the gym, with the medical department. It is still within the limits of what we expected. He is making good progress and there has been less pain" - André Villas-Boas

It beats listening to half a dozen triffics.


Flashback II

"Tottenham Hotspur gave me my chance in the Premier League and I want to go on to achieve great success here with them. Yes, there have been enquiries from other big clubs, but I have no interest in going anywhere. Last season's Top 4 finish was an indication of where we are as a Club and I feel I can continue to improve and go on to achieve everything I want to at Spurs."

Luka Modric, after signing a six year contract in May 2010.


They're just words. They mean nothing, regardless of whether you say them out loud or write them down. Or say something and mean something else, and end up writing that down instead.




Quote of the Day

"I've been telling JJ recently to surge forward with the ball," Sherwood says. "He can run. He's a threat. If he stands there and just passes the ball I could still play against him now, so I got out the DVD and showed him what happens when he bursts forward.

"Tom is another one. Pre-season was a real eye-opener because we saw that he can actually move, that he's fit and he can get about the pitch. People say he can't play in a 4-4-2 but he can. In fact, he's perfect for that because he gets more room to show his range of passing."

From Tim Sherwood, via this Telegraph article.

Give him a shirt number and stick him in the team.

If anyone has evidence regarding Tim's second quote about Huddlestone moving, please e-mail me the details. Ta. And I'm not talking about Hudd moving through the driveway at McDonalds. Got those pics already.
