I really don't get the hate for this competition.

The teams aren't close to as bad as people want to make it out to be and it is a good chance for us to get young players key minutes.

If we make the changes that most hope we do we will want games to give young players a chance and to evaluate them.

For example, it would be great to have these games playing Rodon-Tanganga together as a CB pair, get them minutes together and see how they work as a pair against Qarabag rather than Salah-Mane and LIverpool.

Get a chance to play Sessegnon at LB so he can work out kinks against Feyernoord and not City.

Lets hold it at new White Hart Lane, pack the stadium full of fans that might not get the chance to go to the more expensive games. create a fun atmosphere and have some fun. There is such a lack of excitement and fun around this team for two years why not enjoy some midweek football in games in which we should dominate and watch some young kids get a run out.
Some entitled fuckwits think we should turn up our noses at this for some bizarre reason. Must be our massive recent trophy haul...🧐

Stupid attitude, dumbass thread. But it is by resident gooner Don Giovanni Don Giovanni so that’s not a surprise

That's the book on my nightstand at the moment. I'm sure most of you have read it, if you haven't, fix that immediately.

It's about the Tottenham Hotspur of legend, the romantic notion of Spurs we all love, and the figures who made this club what it is, the thing we're all so proud of and desperate to see succeed.

Pictured there on the front cover is the tin-pot new trophy cynically cooked up by UEFA as a third tier competition, then in its very first season. One of the great nights in our history.

The point of the game is not to climb the Deloitte Money League, not to gain the respect of Sky Sports pundits, it's to compete, and lift trophies, and if you wouldn't take joy and pride in winning this competition that's your own problem, you've lost the plot.
Brilliant book (still surprised Billy Nick allowed it :) )

This competition is dumb and unnecessary but I agree that it's a really good opportunity to actually play some academy prospects in meaningful matches at NWHL. Sell tickets at £10/£5, throw the U23s with a few senior players in the mix at it and it seems like an enjoyable evening.

It's been an awful couple of football seasons and an awful actual pandemic-ridden 18 months by next August. Let's make the most of it.
 
This would be an odd way to look at things. Should we just not enter any competitions in case we don't win them? Just fold the club.
This is why we should self-relegate to League One. One lower than the Champo just in case one of those clubs gets a bit frisky and tries to win it.

Steady, there's some big clubs in League One. Maybe we should join Scottish League Two to be safe.

Fuck, you're right. Sunderland is there! Hull City! Christ, there might be 4 or 5 teams that have played Premier League football at some point in the league. Better not risk it.
 
If we did get Gzira, I'd probably go to the away leg :)

Malta looks lovely.
Also interested in visiting Georgia, Macedonia, Albania, Montenegro, San Marino, Faroe Islands & Cyprus at least.

Always find 'other' places to visit than places like these, but if Spurs are playing there it's a great excuse!

Let's wait & see if Levy's recent act of contrition and damascean revelation about his past failings extends to cheap tickets for these games. I bet it doesn't.

Fantastic book. I was on the Coventry trip.
