There would be absolutely no reason at all to move from Leicester to Tottenham. 
Other than being in London and having a bigger stadium, I don’t think Spurs have anything to offer.

Despite the media obsession, they really aren’t a big club on the level of Liverpool, Man Utd or Arsenal. 
They are in the next band with Everton and Aston Villa. They are just having their successful period that these teams have had in the past. In fact they are coming to the end of there’s with nothing of note to show for it.

Completely agree. I just think he would go if it became available.

This is the worst type of player. A player who hides from the ball. This gave me flashbacks of Stephen Hughes & Andy Johnson circa 2005. I was livid that they were hiding like this behind opposition players.

My f/c to end of season is we will finish with 73-76 points . 73 points  should be enough to guarantee ECL football next season. To do this we need to slightly improve which should be possible as I would expect our home form to improve to a point which more than compensates for any falling away in away form. Average luck should see our injury problems lessen for the rest of the season relative to other teams. I also think BR will have learned from points lost to date due to imo occasionally poor selection, compounded by lack of correction at half time. I think he'll still be here for 2021/2 season which I regard as very good news.

 

That to me will be a good season. 2021/2 I think will be even better.

 

This post is meant for me really as a record and has been dated , printed and pinned up but it may bring cheer to those who won't get their covid jabs until end May, What ever happens in the FA Cup and EL  is less important financially but could be a wonderful bonus if we get past Brighton which I think will be difficult.

Wasn't Sissoko playing like a prime Gerrard or Lampard last year. Well, at least according to Spurs fans. 

 

Remember a Newcastle supporting mate of mine saying that he turns up about once in every 8 games when he's unplayable and then he's back to being a donkey. Cannot believe he's got so many caps with France.

Having a spot of lunch and foolishly watching sky sports news....

 

has our game been called off because there only seems to be 1 game this Sunday which they are constantly going on about...

 

AAANNNND ITS LIVE

To be fair the last 5 of the 6 games we've played against each other have been horrifying.

I see Spurs bottled it again. What a bunch of losers. 

If you can't win anything at all with Mourinho at the helm then there's a problem. 

 

He's usually good for a cup.

We are literally the main reason for the Sky and UEFA getting all scared and trying to make some stupid super league or block European competition based on where you finish.

Leicester are ruining what they all want, we’re that annoying little pest that wouldn’t get lost and now are a genuine ‘semi dangerous threat’.

 

What we did in 15/16 shook the world but it was seen as ‘cute’ ‘miracle’ and would ‘never happen again’ , yet now with our owners and our project and current squad, we are seen as a more sustainable outfit and club and a threat and the big boys, the media and pretty much everyone else in football bar us don’t like it.

I don’t really see this. Sky don’t like us, of course, but the rest of the media seem to see us as a breath of fresh air - witness good articles in the Guardian, Daily Heil and the Torygraph in the past week.

 

And I don’t really get the feeling that other fans dislike us, although they may be jealous. One of my mates is a lifelong Derby fan, and he still wishes Pearson had stayed to work his magic there!

It’s incredibly short eyed view. The media will always go with the biggest story. For a moment we were the biggest story. 15/16 went past football to a larger news story. 
 

There are numerous clubs in Europe fighting the good fight. Atalanta and Ajax for example. Even below the top tier, you have the likes of Atleti who the super clubs dislike being so successful

Not premier league related but legit

You know what though if we had a direct free kick to win a cup final and I had to pick one player in the world to take it I would pick Seb Larsson. How his free kick taking isn't talked about more I will never know. Quality.

 

I will add however, the rest of his game leaves a lot to be desired.

Athletico Madrid and Ajax are European giants, they would both probably be part of the situation of elite clubs.

Leicester are not, you can tell the media hate giving us credit and don’t like it that we are good currently.

They would much rather a Everton, Leeds , Aston Villa or Newcastle to come out of the shadows than us. Even a West Ham is seen as more attractive and fashionable to become a bigger club than us.

We are seen in the same kind of light as Southampton or Wolves, a boring mid sized club that shouldn’t compete at the top end.


What we are doing is unprecedented, in terms of since the money came in 1992, no one has challenged the big 4/6 since Blackburn and Newcastle flirted..since 1996 no one has got near, in even a one off season, let alone over a few years sustaining in a challenge.

We have not only gone way and beyond anyone will for years, but we are building a model that’s sustainable and a legitimate threat to the established ‘big’ clubs in the future if they don’t do something about it.

 

It was a big 4, then because they formed a new club called Man City in 2008 and Spurs because they are Arsenals neighbours joined and they want to shut it there before there’s too many threats and not enough top players to go around.

 

I truly believe what we did has changed football in the future. They were getting their way and it was impossible to get anywhere near the CL , let alone win the damn thing. It’s made them scared and that there is a potential to compete with them if you get some fairly wealthy owners and run the club well - they want to stop that immediately.

They are small fry compared to the super clubs. They don’t carry any weight on television deals (Atleti for example get 40 million euros less than Real and Barca) they have very little marketability to non European markets. 
 

The CL changes/Super League is less about Leicester and more about a number of historical superb clubs losing their way with mounting debts because their TV deals can’t compete with Leicester. It’s all largely backed by the Spanish big two, PSG and the Italian clubs

Theyve had some financial and locational advantages compared to us but I think spurs are actually the club you describe in that first paragraph. No where near the money of chelsea or man city or the history or global fanbase of arse, man utd or liverpool but have consistently finished top 6 for a decade and them consistently hitting the top 4 from when we won the title forced SKY to create 'the top 6' so as to keep the failing arsenal and man utd relevant. 

I'm pretty sure though that now their top 4 purple patch is over SKY and other media will start to ditch them. They dont have the trophies or the legions of glory hunting fans to make it worth their while.
