Up The Spurs! Slava Ukraini! 🇬🇧🇺🇦🇬🇧🇺🇦🇬🇧🇺🇦


Like it or loathe it, it seems this is the direction of football at the top level now.

A guy like Mourinho, who had so much success only a few years ago, had strong defensive organisation, but didn't try to micro manage the attacking phase the way guys like pep, conte and klopp seem to now. And he's been left behind as a result.

Coaching automations may work, but it doesn't really encourage creativity or spontaneity, which is Fabregas' point I guess.

Interesting read. Sounds a bit like someone having a bit of a whinge though. The quality of football at a top level is just very, very good for me.

Got to be tourists. Seriously how could any vaguely serious fan wear a H&H scarf for those c****s. Dreadful scenes.

Remember that they had H&H scarves for sale down Wembley Way for the NLD when we played there.

But yeah, wearing them in a home boozer is a bit strong.

I obviously despised Fabregas at [email protected] and Chelsea - grudgingly less so when he played for Spain although he was never a stand-out player curiously - but I've read a couple of interviews with him in Spanish and he comes across really well - eloquent and with interesting, original opinions.

It's funny, now he's been and gone I can't hate so much him any more.
