No Modric.. Who Needs Him .. We Do.


 Specsavers referee of the day.
Now in the Kent Pub 'Hall of Fame'

Greg is in lazy Sunday afternoon mode, relishing a Saturday afternoon victory, and the fact that every single one of our top seven rivals, except Chelsea, dropped two points. He washes the whole lot down with local beer and Steak and Abbot Ale pie. What a life!
Who ate all the pies?  Greg.

 Sunday 27 November 2011 ... Teemu "Darren Anderton" Tainio's Birthday.
What The Papers Should Say ... A Cure For Altitude Sickness At Spurs.
.
 What else than a Sunday lie in, a saunter up to our Pub, an early coffee before Steak and Abbot ale pie for lunch, all washed down with a leisurely ramble through the Sunday papers.
Not going to bore you with a match report but some of our number have some thought on shorts that should make the news.
.
  Moments That made Our Saturday and Others That Amused Or Informed.
.
 Ledley started and finished another match. The rest is obvious. Just ask the Sky commentator opining about the value of a good luck charm. He can play a bit too.
.
 The little sports car again looked dangerous and was prepared to use the accelerator. It was Arron's assist for the first goal.Our little left winger is looking potent again. Obviously prefers rightside but given the double teaming on Bale the second half wing swap made sense. Bale featured on the assist sheet as well. Otherwise hardly barnstorming but he does divert opposition resources from other parts.
.
 Adebayor looked up from the off. His chasing and work ethic were impressive.His finishing less clinically so but they went in twice, just. A very honourable mention to our two haircuts, Scotty and Benny. Tremendous games especially Benoit.
.
 You would bet the papers will run the line that Spurs won without their two big guns. Moddle and VDV. as well. Spurs can play better but won anyway. Music to our lawyer's ears. Sounds a little like tabloidal thoughts usually reserved for Man United. Maybe this new Spurs is the real deal. Third last week and still there after a prickly away assignment.
.
 Talking of Man United. Nothing warms the cockles of our Tranmere Accountant's heart than the sight of an apopopelctic Sir Ferguson in full red nose rant mode. Usually means daylight robbery has occurred at Old Trafford. Newcastle did us a good turn with a fortunate draw.
.
 And further on the subject of refereeing. Not Mike Jones at OT but Lee Probert surprised all here with a respectable display at the Hawthorns yesterday. His penalty decisions were correct and he earnt respect with a composed display. Even when the game got edgy.
.
 As well the yellow card he gave to Mulumbu after the Congolese called for one following an incident with Sandro was priceless. Demonstrated proper referee largesse in complying with the said request.
.
 Firstly Youssouf remember old English proverb, be careful what you wish for. Secondly it is a pet hate of our cabbie here, so he thinks good on you Lee. It may be a new directive from on high or just excellent proactive refereeing from Mr. Probert. Said he had a good game.
.
 The icing on the cake was made in Holland but occurred just down the road from White Hart lane. Martin Jol's Fulham almost made it but the draw with Arsenal was great for Spurs.
.  
So Sounds Like A Lazy Afternoon Here At A Kent Pub. 
.
 Debate will prosper here this Sunday arvo. Mine host says thats why they play games at the proper Saturday afternoon time. Gives you time to bask in the glory ( that word again Danny B.) of Tottenham Hotspur on a leisurely Sunday.
.
We will spare a round as well for the man who rivals Darren Anderton for most appearances at the Chigwell Lodge treatment rooms. Now of New York Bulls Tainio Teemu is 32 today.
.
 Cheers ... Daniel Blanchflower had these Sundays in 1960-61 ... our best start since then ... Greg Meyer.        coys.

.
And now in response to overwhelming demand, Ledley King speaks. This was just before the W. Brom game. We are unbeaten with Ledley in the team this season.

When Ledley's in the driving seat
the Mighty Spurs they don't get beat.

We could be greedy and got a full House with Chelsea but they can wait another day you forgot they are all away next week and we are at Home.. One thing Harry has too do is find a place fro Van without splitting our star pairing up Ady Defoe. DAVSPURS

Nice piece, and yeah, I feel the same way, for the first time in years, Im not waiting in quiet desperation for the perennial Spurs meltdown, were simply too strong nowadays. Kaboul had a bit of a nightmare, but Ledders, and more importantly, Parker, papered over. Bale went missing 1st half, and Adebayor, for the 2nd game in a row, missed 5 or 6 times, unheard of really, especially when you're scoring twice on both occasions. I wonder how things would be if the riots had never happened, and we had beaten Everton at home on opening day....
