    Naughton is having a hell of a game.

  2. scott says:

    Looks like Sherwood is back on the sidelines making an A$$ of himself.

  3. Smokey Bacon says:

    The curtain is slowly coming down on the Sherwood era. Started well but proving to be all mouth like a younger version of Redknapp. Not all his own fault. Spurs have been undone by wasting all of the Bale money with some atrocious signings.

  4. scott says:

    The curtain never should have came up. Not to say AVB shouldn’t have have been fired, he should have. But everyone knew this Sherwood dog couldn’t hunt, he was just a stop gap till the end of the season. As regards the signings, its too early to tell, these guys haven’t even played for a competent manager yet. And things wouldn’t have been much different they had keept Bale.

  5. scott says:

    Nice comeback by Spurs. Erikson had another nice game I think he has great potential. Soldado and Chadhli also played well.

  6. jtm371 says:

    cheap second goal for Spurs but much the better side in 2nd half.nice win for Spurs.

    Go Stoke beat the Villains!

      How kicked is your cat?

      • jtm371 says:

        can not tell you the dagger is still stuck in my side.was hoping for a draw that went out the window very early.I am gutted seen this movie before and i know the ending.tough season to be a Forest fan.

  7. Cantona says:

    Martino, for a second day in a row really looks amateurish in his analysis. This is NBC’s weak spot in their halftime show.. I wish they would find a pundit with some connection and history to English football .


    • jtm371 says:

      martini boy and white out for next season.I know it will never happen.

    • Cantona says:

      Yesterday was particularly funny when he said Van Persie and Rooney just don’t work well together then Mustoe tuned and said Rooney passed the ball to Van Persie for the goal against olympiacos of course they do…



  8. IanCransonsKnees says:

    Charlie Ward on the bench for Stoke today, don’t expect him to come on but is a glimmer of hope from our acadmey.

  9. Flyvanescence says:

    So we send Guidetti to Stoke to see what he can do. Hughes insists on playing the useless Crouch instead of him.


    • Iancransonsknees says:

      Apparently,despite having a full season to get fit, he’s carrying too much timber. A wasted signing from our POV.

      Crouch is far from useless. Kenwyne Jones deserves that tag. Scored and set 1 up so far today.

    • Yespage says:

      Crouch is hardly useless. Jones was the lumbering tree on the pitch. Crouch can move, dribble, and score. He has several goals this season. And Stoke started doing better once Hughes started Crouch instead of the tree.

  10. jtm371 says:

    Somebody better tell Stoke to get off the bus.

  11. Smokey Bacon says:

    Villa’s defending is comical. Makes for an entertaining game.

  12. Guy says:

    OK. I think I can crow now…..Go arrrnnnn STOKE! :-)

    • IanCransonsKnees says:

      Reckon we’re safe now? Have to say Hughes doing that spending no more than £5m is an outstanding performance.

  13. IanCransonsKnees says:

    I’d have taken a point before today. We haven’t won at Villa since 1988.

    Nice to see Geoff on the scoresheet, listening to Collymore on Talksport is amusing.
