I can't see Poch going anywhere other than Real or Psg, and both those jobs aren't available for the time being.
Wouldn't be too disappointed if Erikssen went, he's looked uninterested for a while now, but losing Super Jan would be a blow.
It's been pretty poor football for a while, doesn't help having the highest paid chairman in the premier league not wanting to spend any money on anything other than his shopping centre project.
Big 6pt game today then. NL Derby always a big deal of course, but Spurs really need a win or likely will be bottom half by close of the day.
Arsenal win puts them 3rd so pride at stake too.
Im not expecting much...something feels a bit unsettled at spurs atm.
Yeah. It is a bit troubling.
Not much love for Levy and Poch seems to be fed up which must be affecting the dressing room.
Bottom half means nothing after 4 games. What does matter is 8 points off the top, 6 off City and behind the teams who should be our direct rivals (the other 3 and potentially the likes of Leicester, Everton, Wolves who at least harbour ambitions of breaking into the top 6).
Liverpool and City will barely drop 15 points all season, while it's a bit optimistic to say we should be challenging them for the title we should be looking to be in the conversation for as long as possible - as we were last season, only 5 points or so well after halfway (I seem to remember being 2 points back after 23ish games but games in hand mess with that particular memory).
The Newcastle game was a massive fuck up, it's a "pools panel home win" every time but we didn't show up and they earned it. If we were on 7 points from 9 including away at City there's no talk of a crisis, quite the opposite - so yeah, we fucked up but it's only 1 game and everyone will have their fuck up at some point (Crystal Palace, 3-2 at the Etihad anyone?).
Just got to make sure it is only the one game then...
Good points Zapp.
Prediction for today?
There's something rotten in the state of tottenham
One out all out
I am expecting an ill tempered, injury filled, goalless draw with both managers sent to the stands hoping the sport of football is the winner today.
Man for man we're better than them - they have potentially a great front 3 but they haven't all played together yet, midfield is decent but more functional than exciting, and their defence is poor.
Our defence is up to task (especially if Vertonghen plays). Midfield we'll miss Ndombele but Winks and Sissoko can hold their own, ably assisted by (hopefully) Eriksen and/or Dele. We should create chances and with Lucas, Son and Kane available should stick one or two away.
As ever on derby day though, it's less about who is better and more about who wins more of the battles.
2-1, tense away win.
I was thinking the Arse might nick it 2-1
A draw would not surprise. I suppose it depends which (of either) team turns up today.
Here we go Spuds
My stream seems to be about 2 mins slow, so I'd appreciate if you could all factor in an appropriate delay before announcing anything important.

I'd swear Paul Stalteri just scored against West Ham. Identikit.
