It's a (Xmas) cracker

 It's the way I tell 'em

What do the following players and Harry have in common? Jermaine Defoe, Peter Crouch, and Assou Ekotto. They all want to see out their days at Tottenham. All are decent players, at or just over their peak, on good wages, at a going places club. It's clearly a reverse of the 'Come and get me plea' headline. More of a, 'Please ignore me I'm doing quite nicely where I am thankyou' plea.

.Didn't one famous Spurs legend , a Mr.R Keane say the same once, before he popped out for a moment and then popped back in again? But this smells to me like a conspiracy, as if Daniel is being 'nudged' into the profitable geriatric care home field. Now I'm all for stability but this is getting ridiculous.

Harry is different. His advisors have clearly warned him that he is touting for the England job too openly. He needs to play harder to get. Don't take the bra off all in one go H. One strap at a time, a little more coy and turn your back on them when you finally remove it. I knew all those hours spent in seedy, half lit Soho cellars with drinks at 10 shillings a pint, I am going back a bit here, wouldn't be wasted. I know an artful striptease when I see one.
' England Managership? Oh go on then'

What other scraps are there for the frustated football blogger to examine?. Andy Carroll was being touted at £20million on Saturday with at least three Spurs players thrown in, plus cash. Perhaps this is what our lads are worried about. Of those that have hidden in the wardrobe only Crouchy was mentioned.

By today it's gone up to £25million and six players. (I made the six players bit up; blogger's licence) I make that £45 million by January 1st. So if you want him Harry don't leave it too long. Ashley clearly has a death wish if he's thinking of selling local hero Carroll. You would imagine that Pardew would have made keeping his key players a condition of his contract.

He is a risky buy but certainly offers us what we are lacking: a centre forward in the classic mould that attacks the ball in a way that our current quartet don't. But the inexperience, one season wonder, syndrome might count against him as well as the 'bright lights of London' aspect which might throw him off the goal scent.. The lights in Newcastle are not that dim though. We might have to buy Nolan as well in order to maintain his bail conditions. He could always lodge with Ledley King our Club Captain.

Eleswhere I read that Pavlyuchenko is being advised to get an English tutor as according to his agent, although he can understand you have to speak slowly to him.

This reminds me of Rob.Wilton's line about writing a letter to his mother which begins:

Dear Mother.
I am writing this slowly as I know you can't read very fast'

Who advised him to improve his English is not clear. Might it be Harry by some delicious irony?. I think this is about 9 on the bullshit scale and is about a year out of date in any case.
'ostrov' from Spurs Community informs me that Запоздалая хуйня.' is Russian for 'out of date bullshit' and with a name like that I'm sure it's kosher info.

The postponement of the Blackpool game was probably to our advantage as it gives our wounded some rest and recreation before Boxing Day where we visit a struggling Aston Villa, weather, gritting and de-icing permitting. I expect us to win everything these days but this is certainly one of a run of winnable games, before we begin again in what was viewed when we kicked off the season as an 'easy' start. 'No easy games' and all that.

I expect you expect me to endorse the ' Thank God we drew AC Milan in the Champions' League' line but to be honest I would willingly swap with Chelsea and Man.Utd. I don't go along with the 'We might as well face them early as later; we can beat anyone at the Lane; playing the best is what it's all about attitude'. Save the best until last, all in good time, is my attitude. Arsene tried to sidetrack his demons by predicting that they would get Barcelona. You got that one right Mr. Wenger. You're very welcome to them.

Harry neatly summarises why we won't get Scott Parker in January:
"I like Parker, but he belongs to West Ham. He will be 31 next birthday and they will want £15million.
"Daniel (Levy, chairman) wouldn't buy players of that age, on big wages with no sell-on."

This makes me think that serious discussions have been held. If we could get him for £10 million and the six players that don't fancy the North East it's probably a goer. We'll see.

If Aston Villa is cancelled expect another round up of gossip, rumour, rubbish (in and out of date) and tittle-tattle.I might even do a run-down of the best Xmas Cracker jokes.

Merry Xmas to all

Very good. Excellent.

But enough about me, this is your blog.

*ba-dum-tish*

Seriously, though, cracking post that, Jim. Staved off the cabin fever for another few hours at least, I reckon. Snowed in, you see. If you haven't heard from me for another twenty-four hours, then tell them my last words were good ones.

To you, Jimmyg2, and all your readers, Merry Christmas...

Anon first poster on yesterday's blog.

Apologies, your comment was obliterated by my technical incompetence. I revised the column and it disappeared.

who framed ruel fox.
The postman seems to have got through though Foxy so I think you are just holed up avoiding your creditors.
Merry Xmas to you and your ilk (elk?)

enjoyable post, Jim. would you include anything on Modric now that Ancelotti seems interested? i hope harry stands by his "i can't replace Modric' gig.

JimmyG2 said...

Any manager who doesn't want Modric is a fool.
But Ancellotti is on record since say that Modric is not on his buying list.
Would Modric prefer to be the main man in an exciting team still challenging for Champion's League glory this year or a bit part player elsewhere?
I think he is happy at Spurs but if we don't make top four all our key players are under threat as always.
Modric seems to be different, more modest and humble, more loyal(?) and I don't see him leaving until the end of next season whatever happens.
