Never say Never. say Spurs

For AVB the pundits predict it's up or out.

 November 29 2013 .. Three Older Great Birthdays .. One Plays Sunday



May You Never.
.


" May you never hold your head down without a hand to hold,


May you never lose your temper if you get hit in a bar room fight.


May you never lose your Tottenham.

May you never leave your team out in the cold ...."     with help from and apologies to John Martyn  ... "May You Never." The lyrics are very apt regards Andre at the mo.
.
 Philosophically speaking its been a little rough lately down our Kent Lane. Nothing to do with the goings on at a certain White Hart Lane. Actually its all to do with those football goings on.


Talk of Andre VB out. Bollocks.
.
 A thousand and one conspiracy theories emanating from all sources inside and out the Tottenham Hotspur FC Board. Bollocks.


Dressing room mutiny. Bollocks. So what is the problem? Various theories were floated this week ...
.
 At A Kent Pub.
.


Inverted wingers. Sounds like a new political catch phrase. At least we have done away with the term"project". Yes the squatting went some time ago. Mind Martin Samuel of the Mail seems somewhat inverted in his call for a return of the said squatting. Yes to less inversion of the wingers and more to the old fashioned reach the byline approach.
.
 Sad but true. Michael "always smiling, always trying"  Dawson was to put it nicely, embarrassed by the likes of Auguerro and Co. To put it bluntly the boyo is out of his depth completely. Yes Kaboul was rusty but not the badger in the headlights that was our loyal captain.
.
 So Kaboul or Vlad , alongside Verts. Fryers or even Holtby at left back until the Rose return.


So that's the back and front. The middle. Sandro stays, Dembele does seem to be finally running into form, faith in Paulinho, and yes Lamela for his creativity.
.
Just before the naysayers arrive, Lamela seemed better against Citeh. Not knocked off the ball, showed good pace, keen and confidence is building.
.
Tromso ... always makes us think of a Monty Python sketch ... went to plan. No catastrophic injuries. Moussa looking more forward than usual. Brad kept a clean sheet.
.
 Okay back to some more fine English ale. After all it is Man U.on Sunday. Van Persie, Rooney, etc. A big ask. Will they lift? Starting to get rather pivotal for Spurs and a certain managerial tenancy.
.


Sitting round our birthday table today some real legends. John Myall turns 80, Brad Friedel's brother Kasey Keller is 44 and yes the Welsh wonder Ryan Giggs turns 40 today.
.


We cannot go any worse on Sunday can we. Surely not.
.


Cheers and commiserations ... in the immortal words of John Martyn ... "May we never lose our faith in Tottenham..."      Greg Meyer.         coys.

 Greg's Video Spot :
By special request from Greg, John Martyn's 'May you Never' Live at the BBC from 1973.
We won the league cup that year and somewhere around then we beat Manchester United 4-1.
