An Interview With A Spurs Fan

An Interview With A Spurs Fan

1) Another great start for Spurs, all down to Berbatov the footballing mercenary sulk, or are you just struggling to get the right team together?

I think our bad start is due to poor tactics and new players gelling in. I refuse to accept that Berbatov is to blame.

2) A lot of money has been spent at Spurs, is it right that the director of football seems so hands on and if he is bringing in the players, is he not also as culpable for poor results as the managers?

I have never been a big fan of the DOF structure. It seems as though the position carries a lot of authority but without any accountability or responsibility. The players should be chosen by the manager and he should sink or swim by his decisions alone.

3) Martin Jol seemed to split opinions for Spurs fans, is Juande Ramos a step up or....?

Juande Ramos will only be proved to be better than Martin Jol when he surpasses his two top 5 finishes.

4) What was your best signing of the summer?

We will have to wait and see!

5) If you could have one Villa player, who would it be and why? Who would you gladly send to us in exchange?

None of the current Villa Players are good enough for Spurs and all the current Spurs players would be too good for the Villa Side.

6) What, if anything, do you think of Aston Villa and also Martin O'Neill?

I have always liked Villa as they play good attractive football. It is such a shame that the city they are in is so grim. Birmingham should be avoided at all costs. However, Martin O’Neil is a very good manager.

7) I've read a fair bit on Vital Spurs over the years about potential ground moves or re-developments of White Hart Lane. What is the current situation? Surely you would hate to move to one of the new identikit stadiums?

I am not up to date on the situation but what I do know is that Spurs having been buying all the shops and buildings in the immediate vicinity of the ground. I do think they will stay where they are and re-develop. I hope so anyway.

8) Last seasons game against Villa was a crazy rollercoaster ride and Villa really did blow 3 points from such a winning position, great entertainment though, do you expect the same this year!?

To throw a lead away like Villa did is a measurement of how crap the Villa side is! Nevertheless, it was a fantastic game and in the end Spurs should have won it.

Nowt wrong with a little banter on the 'eve' of big game, although few would class Villa as a big game ;-)

Don't make me laugh, in the 4-4 draw, you got your equalizing goal in the last second, and you say you should have won the game. Haha you were lucky to get a draw never mind win. I think that shows how S**T your team is.

Boys, boys , boys - coz I am guessing ur not men yet lol - it's called banter!!!! Deal with it lol. I'd glady have Barry in our side all day and twice on Sundays. Young and Aggie wouldn't go amiss either. Oh and while we nicking whoever we want - can we have that Laursen fella as well please? Just let him know tho he may have to work harder for his 2 goals this year rather than Robbo dropping the ball at his feet! Enjoy the game fellas and 3 points to us - I hopes! Lol
