The State of Spurs 2

Quick catch up. Things were pretty grim for a while this season. The whole Nuno disaster. The lack of movement, Conte pulling his hair out and looking worried post every match, however the past 4, 5 maybe 6 matches I am seeing some big improvements. Throwing out the bad eggs helped a lot; Lo Celso, Ndombele, Dele. Good riddance. Wish Winks and Sanchez was on that list also. None the less, getting rid of deadwood improved the morale of the remainders. Dier has been immense, he’s really come a long way even though I believe him to be somewhat technically limited and slow. We have in Bentancur a proper midfielder, and with Kulusevski a man with vision. Skipp is sorely missed. He is an important player. Just maybe 4 more acquisitions and some returning from injury will mean Spurs is a contender for the top4. We still need a left sided defender, Davies can have very off days and needs someone to compete with him. RB/RWB also, both Doherty and Emerson need to be moved on, its just not working out with them. Plus a striker to replace Kane when he’s not on it. We have decent cover in the other positions otherwise. Oh and plus a new goalie, and possibly another backup midfielder unless Sarr joins up and looks the business. Injuries have hobbled Tantanga who I felt could have sat in the right side role for days Romero wasnt playing.

More adventures in coding

Since my last update I’ve fallen back in love with C++. I hadn’t really touched this language since perhaps 2011 and I was unaware that there are new versions of this C++20 released in 2020 for example which makes some changes and improvements. It was a revelation. For years I spent time playing around with Java and Python simply because C++ felt limited but actually, now I can see that Java and Python are just poor mans versions of C++. C++ is king! It always was I think, its just I lost my way for a while before opening my eyes. Anyway I am in the process of making some basic games using it alongside the Raylib libraries. Really enjoying it.
