Latest Spurs videos from Sky Sports



This is only 6 minutes long, but well worth a watch, it's the story of Alexandre Villaplane, France's captain at the 1930 World Cup.

If you think some footballers of today can be shitbags, none to my knowledge have collaborated with Nazis and willingly performed execution of civilians like Villaplane did.
 
I would think some may have seen this before, but this is one that Sky did in 2006 about a then con man called Alessandro Zarrelli who lied his way into clubs in Northern Ireland & Wales despite being a terrible footballer, think Ali Dia on a longer scale.

He would go on to have a semi-pro career in football afterwards, before sadly dying in a car accident in 2018.

Now I'm a big fat dynamo!
I am currently watching the Simeone series on Amazon Prime. There's a section in the second episode which includes a highlight reel of his best shithousing while at Sevilla set to classical music that is just brilliant TV.

Definitely an interesting man.

This is one of my fav docs (I've posted the English version in here before but like so much on YouTube looks like it's been pulled).

Anyway, here is a non-English version, it doesn't matter too much as the clip I want to refer to is only short, literally a few seconds and there's no speaking. I have played a few games but it's rare thing that any of my managers have got pre-match stuff right, here Simeone nails it for me. When he was river Manager he had his team warm-up under the stands prior to the Classico away to Bocca. He just paces around between the players, as the clip progresses you can see him talking. Again tiny, tiny thing and maybe it's the film that's atmospheric but I'd want my manager to be with me pre-match like this. (clip is at 1:11:28)

 
This is fucking great!!!!


Obviously I'm not a fan of Bellerin (or his 'fashion sense') but fair play to the guy, he comes across pretty well, and - dare I say - even likeable...?🫢 Dammit!

A great watch, thanks for sharing.
Have always wanted to visit and see a match at La Bombonera!

Bellerin was always one of the more likeable ones from that mob, I feel. Seems to be switched on with his views on global issues and he hates the tories too.
