  1. I certainly remember BBC showing the old Universal and Hammer monster movies - absolutely loved them. Also remember them showing the Chinese ghost stories and Dracula films over Christmas every year

    There are a few counter-stories around this evening saying that Spurs are absolutely committed to keeping him for at least one more season to see if he comes good. Makes sense to me - he’s probably worth half what they paid for him after a disaster of a season for him personally, and with Covid knackering everyones’ finances.

    I really like the yellow third kit - takes me back to Stevie Perryman lifting the FA Cup against QPR

    Not an exact science, but if you extrapolate our points per game under Mourinho to a full 38 games, we’d have got 71/72 points, which was more than enough for CL football. The team achieved 45 points in 24 games, for half of which we had Kane and Son missing, and/or various other players like Lloris and Sissoko with long-term injuries. It may not be pretty, but it seems it was fairly effective.

    40 points back from Liverpool is pretty shocking. Levy needs to act quickly in the transfer market so we have a chance to integrate new players sooner rather than later. And a farewell to Jan Vertonghen. Shame his legs have gone, but he’s been great for Spurs over the years.
  6. I’m quite torn between the two. I’m traditionally more loyal to non-Sony consoles (Dreamcast, Xbox, 360 and Wii) and I was really hoping to be blown away by the MS showcase but I wasn’t that impressed to be honest. That may change as they start to show a bit more gameplay rather than trailers. The backwards compatibility is a good thing. But I’m also interested in VR, and without concrete support from Xbox in that field still, that tips me towards the PS5. Ultimately I’m onto a winner either way, as I didn’t buy a console at all this gen, so I’ll have plenty of current gen titles to fill the void, whichever way I end up going.

    Villa have done us a big favour anyway.

    Agreed - it would be good to get players like Skipp and Parrott gametime, but I don’t think we have enough of those Up-and-comers to be able to leave out certain of our regular XI, which will lead to the scenario you envisage. Plus I don’t think Jose would enter a competition without thinking he can win it.

    Ha ha, well, when you put it like that...

    I’d rather not rely on Chelsea for anything, but the FA Cup Final is a real Hobsons Choice regarding who I’d want to win. I suppose a kick in the face is better than a kick in the nuts, so come on you Blues. I dunno, part of me sees the attraction in not qualifying for Europa. It’s a useful revenue stream for sure, but it probably won’t convince the calibre of player we need to join the club, and at present we don’t have the squad depth not to risk running some of our key players into the ground again. The other part says “It’s a European competition and we’re better off in it than out of it”.

    I was surprised to find that since Mourinho took charge we’ve got the 4th highest points total in the league. It might not be pretty, but it seems to be working. Like you say, new RB, CB, LB and DCM and we’re ready to roll

    Good win today - first time we’ve won four in a row at the new stadium !

    I’m worried he’s never going to get any momentum if he has all these setbacks. I want to see him have a full season not disrupted by injuries. If it then turns out the pace of the league is too much for him, then at least we’ll have seen him give it a go.

    Injured in training according to José. A good result tonight. Apparently Newcastle had the better of it for a long time, but we took our chances.

    Yeah, too many selfish runs today when a pass could have released another player. Better though.

    I’ll take it. A win against that lot is always welcome

    We seem to have a glut of similar players in positions we don’t need them, and a paucity of players in positions we desperately need. The defence wouldn’t be half as bad if they weren’t getting peppered constantly because our midfield are unable to exert one iota of control in pretty much every game.

    The Spurs Thread

    Agree with all of that, except we probably need two RBs. I’d sell Aurier too, or maybe move him further up the pitch for his attacking play and get someone who can defend behind him.

    Poch changed the press partway through last season to this slower build-up possession based game, presumably because he knew half the team were physically shot to bits with no quality in the backups. His ‘the team needs a painful rebuild’ has been echoing in my head since the summer. He knew it, presumably he told Levy too. And the reason for a painful rebuild now is because of our transfer strategy. The best training facilites and stadium in Europe and possibly the world, with a second-rate outfit on the pitch due to Levy’s reluctance to refresh the squad little and often. Ferguson at Man Utd had it right, and the Liverpool transfer team also - pick one or two positions that need strengthening and/or improvement every window and do it decisively without pissing about. As for Jose, there’s no way Levy will give him the boot, it’ll cost too much. His time at Man Utd spending a fortune and them getting progressively worse during his tenure show that he’s yesterday’s man(ager). His tactics are dour, and have been superseded by dynamic younger coaches. I suspect he’ll start to complain about lack of investment soon enough, but won’t walk out without a payoff. When we left WHL I thought we were looking at a team that would be up there for 15 years challenging, but it’s fallen apart.

    Jesus, we’re genuinely awful at the moment. We got a point thanks to VAR, but that sparkling flowing aggressive football we were playing 2 or 3 years ago has fallen apart so quickly.
  21. I bought a T-Flight for this game - when I actually had the time for it - and Tie Fighter. Works well and isn’t expensive compared to some of the other hotas sticks. It’s reasonably compact as it can join into one piece or split apart into separate stick and throttle boxes.
  22. Loving this thread - never had the time to get into Eve, but sounds amazing if you’re right in the middle of this.
  23. Does anyone have any idea how D+ decides what resolution your system can play ? Is it purely internet bandwidth ? Can it detect what your TV is capable of playing, or is it like the old days with PCs and CRT monitors where if you tell it to use a resolution your TV can’t handle you just get a display error ?
  24. Yup, that’s got me ready for S2, can’t wait
  25. RIP - love DMDWP, one of my favourites.
