Part of this time away from football and while I fucking hate the lockdown I don’t miss football as much as I thought I would, maybe it was the shit we where playing but not sure.

- Currently Crap football with a somewhat flawed squad and a manager whose tactics I am not yet convinced of. Jose admittedly does have a bad hand.

- PFA and players in a time of crisis when their insane wages could bring the clubs down still stuck on a grave train mentality and for me are so disappointing. It really doesn’t help the greedy, thick footballer stereotype

- our initial reaction putting our lowest paid staff on 80% through the government scheme. We reversed it.

- the Newcastle buyout by another brutal dictatorship. The Prem are like a bunch of whores, offering themselves to whoever offers money, even blood money. Whitewashing crimes while buying titles and destroying true competition and growth.

I do miss the great stadium which I think is the best on planet Earth but football has become a tragic landscape. I know I might end up a hypocrite who will go straight back but I am not sure I will be as connected as I used to.

I'm a Cockney Malteser 👑
I'm not missing the actual football at the moment, TBH, and I think that the main reason is because we've not been playing well. I do miss meeting up with my friends though.
However, once it starts up again, I'll be back at the Lane.
It's very hard to justify some of the decisions made by the football hierarchy, they have handled the current situation as badly as can be.
 
I'm disappointed about the postponement of Euros but Covid did us a favour and put an end to a quite horrible season. And footballers moaning about taking even a small pay cut will leave a lasting legacy.
 
think i'm missing cricket more at the minute tbh.

Still have a shred of hope that Spurs (with a couple of additions) have a challenge left in them.
But the window is closing fast on this squad and a long rebuild is on the horizon.

I dunno the CL final took a lot out of me.
 
I'll be happy when it returns but I don't think anyone involved in English football has come out of this well. Owners, players, the media, some fans with their desperate insistence on the season being completed. Football seems to exist within a bubble for some people.

Right now there is all this transfer speculation at a time when millions of people are unemployed and struggling. It's pretty fucking sick.
 
That’s a bit harsh.

:vertna:

I’ve got a serious case of tennis elbow, a seemingly permanently broken toe and a back muscle pain that wont go away.

The current answer.

Wrestling match 5 x a day with a 6ft 15 year old who’s bored out of his mind and has no other physical release.

It’s getting ridiculous tbh. His flexible grappling moves and working on my constant physical pain V my weight advantage - other half just leaves us to it now.

We ever take those goals to the park I’m kicking his ass at a crossbar challenge

Spot on, the main issue we have been playing very badly, losing at home so many times. I was watching highlights from the last few years and we had a very good team, scoring goals freely and winning by margins but no trophy to show for. We had strong defence, now we have ageing Toby and Vert plus unreliable Sanchez. RB and LB are below average. Our midfield is very weak after losing Demele. The attacking is just OK not creative enough.
You won't be back at the lane any time soon, the earliest is sometimes in 2021.

The current owners are a disgrace.
Losing interest...

Up The Spurs! Slava Ukraini! 🇬🇧🇺🇦🇬🇧🇺🇦🇬🇧🇺🇦
I’m missing everything that goes with football. The culture, the atmosphere, meeting up and having a drink etc. So yes, I do miss it. But I’m not ungrateful for a long break from it after the CL final and general club meltdown. This weirdly gives us a shocking great break and a chance to start afresh.

You are not alone in feeling this way.
I’ve tried to work out why Im not missing it either.

Congrats Tomo you got there eventually

I love Spurs but these days I like rather than love football. Felt that way ever since Chelsea beat Bayern to take our spot, in the same season the Sheik Mansour Team bought their first Prem title. It hammered home just how much money has ruined the sport. The introduction of VAR hasn’t helped either.

Not really missing this season. We’ve been playing poorly and Liverpool were about to win the league. I’d happily see it cancelled.
