Modric: the cheer that was heard around the world



The Greg Meyer Column
Modric and Sandro: together, united can never be defeated

It doesn't take much to cheer them up at a Kent Pub. Modric appearing in the 73rd minute of a Europa tie is enough to get the Appreciation Society on its feet. Anyway we're all agreed that it's three points for the taking tomorrow. No disrespect intended but, even away, this is one of the games we should win. I'm on record as forcasting a two goal margin victory, Greg is more cagey. And for the record I remember Winifred Atwell.

 Modric In Europe ... A Good News Week All Over.
.

 Well he finally made it at the 73rd minute. Onto White Hart Lane and into Europe trotted our littlest Croation midfield general against Rubin Kazan. The cheer here at our pub could have been heard around the world.


Does that mean he is cup tied for the January window. Probably doesn't matter in any event. Our Daniel is not letting him go anytime soon whatever the cup or competition. No we have our Luka back and if the football ghods co-operate and deliver fourth then the long term looks secure.


The Luka Modric Appreciation Society moved many a round in felicitious celebration of our patron. Indeed with Mine host just back from Teneriffe things got a little good natured to say the least. So much so another Society was born.
.

 The Sandro Raniere Guimaraes Cordeiro Appreciation Society.
.

 Simply Sandro at 22 years is bound for greatness. Our Daniel has more work on his hands come the end of the season. The work load has doubled. If we retain him then another Spurs legend is born. Rumours of Milan sniffing in the summer just gone are entirely credible.


The Brazilian midfield will be built around this decisive defensive midfielder. Just 22 yet tackles with amazing clinical efficiency. That combined with a tremendous engine all adds up to something special. May yet turn out to be one of our best buys ever. Takes a Brazilian says our lawyer to bring back the Dave McKay spirit to a Spurs side otherwise sprinkled with class.


Don't worry the little formerly spindly one is still up there with our pub. However following the philosphy of one Jose Mourinho you do need two for each position. Think we have the Appreciation Society covered .
.

 And To The Good News.
.

 Our Ledley may be back sooner. Last  year he was gone 7 months. This time the medicos have put an early return date on it Sounds promising given last year they were not brave enough to even quote on any date.


Another win to the kids in Europe. The littlest sports car started even if he was on the wrong side. Surely if he can recover confidence then the Van der Lennon show will prove useful and lethal in the big time.Two into ninety minutes means goals and mayhem.


And the really good news. We play the bottom team this week. Not a banana skin in sight. Plenty of chickens but with our boy back in love with the chicken badge then a productive three points.


I know , I know the old Spurs would skid on anything and buggar this Sunday up. Nope the new Spurs with backbone courtesy of Parker, Sandro, a definitely hungry Kaboul and our Mr Cool, Benny, should prevail. Twitter tells us he made the plane for Blackburn. Should round off a very good news week ...

At A Kent Pub.
.

 Conversations here were very bouyant as you can gather this week. The Brazilian flavour continues tommorrow. Pele turns 70. Still a spring chicken says Luka.


Stuart Atwell, his grandmother was Winifred Atwell, takes charge. Winifred played a mean piano about the time Scottie Parkers' haircut was invented. Still go Scotty. Mind no smiling either.
.

Cheers ... with the week we've had we can even wish Arsene many happy returns ... 62 today ... mind hope Stoke spoil the birthday party ... Greg Meyer.   coys. 
.
 And now, especially for Arsene, tomorrow's referee's grandma playing one of her biggest hits  from the 50's. Entertainment at it's very best. Well it was just after World War 2. I bet Harry remembers it too.
