      Don't even see the point of this Spurs team. They give you just enough for you to start hoping, then bottle it when the pressure is on.

      Last season we could have closed the gap on Leicester. Lost.
      This season we can close the gap on Chelsea. Lost.

      They're skillful, athletic, technical but they still crack under any real pressure at all.

      Straight out of the CL
      Straight out of the EL
      Thrashed by Chelsea in the FA
      Lost to Liverpool in the LC

      Now lost the title to Chelsea via losing to West Ham. Brilliant.

      Waste of time. Consistently the best team over 2 years, and for what? We've won fuck all and Chelsea/United could end the season with 2 trophies despite playing shit. So sick of it.

    The39thStep Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbour?

    Spurs have been outstanding past two seasons but London derbies are tough games and West Ham at their best can cause difficulties for any top six team. Thanks though for beating them

    I saw a man with a half and half Tottenham West Ham scarf. Just having a piss in the toilets like nothing was wrong.

    Unbelievable.

    There was a time when our homes games kicked of at 3.15 pm. It was so the dockers could finish there shift and make the kick off.

    Yeah I've heard that. It's quite unique in football before the sky/premier days so fair play.
    I can imagine people sitting there with the old Pools coupons waiting for Millwall games to finish 1-1 :D

    Did you ever queue up for the paper on a saturday evening to get the football results ? The London evening news ( now the standard) it was called.

    Yeah. We were in the West Midlands in those days it was the Sports Argus.
    I remember standing outside TV shops too, Redifusion etc, at twenty to five waiting for the wrestling to finish so the teleprinter could show up.

    The soon to be demolished E&C centre to follow that scam around the Heygate.

    Sorry Irons fans, we're drifting a bit.

    From the sublime to the ridiculous in 1 week.

    At least it was a nice sunny day.

    I went to a kite festival and only watched the last twenty minutes.

    The kite festival was quite good. The kids liked it.

    Roll on summer.

    Twenty million pound, think about that for a minute. For a club like us that is mega money.

    co-op Free the rhubarb crumble!

    WHU and THFC are so obviously one club cut in two. Culturally identical.

    Cue abuse, but it's because you know it's true.

    West Ham and Millwall and you might have a point. Not sure about Spurs.

    Now you're just trying to wind up the 'wallers.

    The WHU/Millwall thing is obviously an east end macho showdown so culturally similar on that level but otherwise? I don't thing there's much in common. The clubs are totally different sizes, different fan base (I grew up in west London outer suburbia mostly and I knew several kids who were 'ammers, never, never met a waller), really different football culture (the wall are a bit like Palace in some ways, they admire grit more than style, although Palace have pretensions to something higher but we're a bit like Rodney in The Likely Lads, never quite feel at home in high society). West Ham and Tottenham both have the Big Club thing but also a thing about flair and style etc (even though we know the reality is often anything but), both underperform on a grand scale compared to their aspirations and tbf both fanbases seem quite relaxed about that compared to some, always quite friendly at Selhurst Park. Semi-national fanbase, geographical overlap of fans in London. That's about all I can think of for now, they just feel the same to me. Millwall are a bit of a one-off, I don't think there's anything quite like them elsewhere. Thank God :D

    11th is ok when there are only 6 points between 8th and 17th and we had some sort of crisis for most of the season.

    Dear Mr Gold & Sullivan - don't sign John Terry or Wayne Rooney.

    Yeah, exactly. Slav has fucked up at some points, the players as well but we finished mid-table in a season with a lot of unique factors. The worrying bit is that the gap between the top 6 and then Everton and the rest is looking more insurmountable than ever.

    Zabaleta is on his way apparently. I really wouldn't be surprised if Rooney or Terry turned up. I think they'd bring back Winterburn and Wright if they thought they could.
