I’ve been banging on a fair bit about Spurs recently and how its 1 step forward, 2 steps back. Looking at back these past 18 months and I feel the team have definitely regressed. Millions has been written off the player values due to not utilising them the correct way. Has-beens have been given 90 minutes while potentials are left to scrap over the last 10 minutes of a match. The entertainment value has totally ceased, its boring matches that emit zero joy. In the past Spurs would lose, but it was enjoyable! I’d rather a match we lost in a spectacular style than what we are served up now which are zombie players listlessly kicking the ball around with no real intent to score or defend and we still probably lose or its an insipid draw. The Carabao Cup is on in 2 weeks time. I don’t think the squad is in any state to beat Man.City, who are riding high right now and the any conceivable win will be due to Spurs getting lucky and City being very unlucky.
I am fully expecting that a day or two after the last football match of the season is played (23rd May) that the club announce that Mourinho has decided to leave with mutual consent following missing out on the targeted goals.

I clearly spoke too soon in my last update where I talked about the green shoots of recovery. They turned out to be a handful of poisonous weeds. Looking at this football team objectively and I see individual talent but no cohesiveness as a team and for that, we can only blame the manager. Thats his job. He’s been derelict in his duty, or just unable or incapable of managing the various members. For this reason, he need to be sacked. The sooner the better. If Jose is still in charge come Sept 2021 then Spurs will be doomed to be a mid-table team.

Well, what an utter waste of humanity that was. Poor passing, poor motivation, poor effort, poor tactics, the only bright sparks were once again Ndombele and Holjberg in the centre of the park. Possibly Rodon also as decent, but everyone else was a joke. It’s awful to see Son go off the boil and look lost as he has been doing for a couple of matches now. I don’t know what’s happened here or behind the scenes, but the squad needs a rapid shake up, as does the coach. Jose M’s insistence to play Sissoko, who can’t pass at all, is causing misery. Moura also I feel now offers utterly nothing. This game also highlighted why Bale hasn’t been used that often, he’s a sub par player nowadays, well off what he once was. It was a tragedy to watch him running around, and doing absolutely nothing. Worse match I have seen Spurs offer in quite some time but I think it was coming. The dirge football over the past few weeks has maybe destroyed their spirit and I can only blame the coach for that. Its better to play high octane football, and get nowhere, rather than play dirge and get nowhere, and nowhere is where this team is currently entrenched in. Rubbish.

I’m listening to exclusively 1980’s music, and I realized that’s all I’ve been listening to for the past few years. I would have severe difficulty answering to name any artist or song post year 2000 that was any good. But here’s the thing; I feel that that music post 2000, it utter trash! Its crap unoriginal stuff (which is no doubt the exact argument made by Boomer generation people when they are listening to the Beatles or Bill Hailey and the Comets or whatever), I genuinely believe that the 80’s and 90’s was the musical apex of humanity and it went downhill from there. I dare music today to match the sexiness of Robert Palmer Addicted to Love, or the joie de vivre of Power of Love by Huey Lewis and the News, the foot-tappability of Footloose or just, heck, the hundreds of other songs from that era that can lift oneself. Listen, there was recently a viral video of some mean looking dude riding the back of a skateboard hanging onto a pickup drinking cranberry juice miming to Fleetwood Mac. Not something modern…I doubt it would have worked with any modern tune, instead it was an oldie song.
