Wow, you need to watch the start of the Man City game. Kompany should have seen a red card inside 2 minutes. HOW ON EARTH IS THAT NOT A SENDING OFF????

Shocked that Ibra's back already, I clearly missed something.

Anyone with sense starts him over Lukaku. Ability is so much more important than age, it goes without saying.

So much hype on Spurs and Pochettino and they are still useless away from home against the league's big teams. Flat track bullies.

I am loving Pochettino's post-match interview. Except for blaming the refs he came up with information that every team struggles with big teams away from home and specifically mentioned Man United. Like Mourinho ever tried to play football in the last years against the big teams.

Comparing your own poor record with others just to make yourself look good is just daft. At least Mourinho has won a number of away games against the big sides over the years. How many has Pochettino won as Spurs manager? 1 in 17 and if we want to be choosy, that came against an ailing Man City side under Pellegrini. Said this before, when the spotlight is on Spurs, when they are expected to do something good, they choke. Last season's FA Cup semi-final, that West Ham game in May, the match at Wembley in August, their match at United last month and the Arsenal game today. Those were the times they were supposedly going to win and turn up the heat on others but every single time, they bottled it. All this novelty of building a team for the future, playing good football etc will only last for so long because if they don't do the business in the league, if they don't win trophies, it's all going to fall apart and players will leave at some point.

God it would be off the scale fucking brilliant if West Ham got relegated those 55,000 crowds would half overnight. All those Essex halfwits watching in a half empty stadium with the dildo brothers and that Tory whore Karen Brady getting their comeuppance for ripping off the London taxpayer

thats a red card all day long, clear goal scoring opportunity Vardy was off and running, Stones wasn´t even going to catch him, typical FA, you can bet if it was on of our players making that foul it would have been a straight red, scum refs and FA

Seeing talk about City wanting both Rose and VVD still. They'd literally be taking the piss out of the football world. They'd have a defense alone that's more expensive than most top teams' entire XI's. They're literally buying success with zero repercussion.

They are spending more rationally now that's giving them a pass. 5 players for £250m instead of PSG's route & they actually made a profit IIRC.

Rationally? Nearly every player they buy now is £50m. Sterling, KDB, Walker, Stones, Mendy. Rose & Van Dijk would be around that each. They'll probably still want Sanchez, too.

Have you seen the current market? 50m is considered value nowadays
