    I'm referring to the several posts exclusively about stadiums. And my own post that was exclusively about stadiums. Like they give a feck who owns the concrete and plastic.

    Haha, "27% more fans". Surprised you didn't mention the NFL team as a factor as well.

    Yeah, no, this still comes off as desperate. Of course he's going to be positive about it, he clearly likes it at Tottenham, and a new stadium is a good thing (most of the time). I just think you're just wildly overestimating how big of a factor it plays in keeping him there, as evident by you citing it. You also seem weirdly defensive about this particular point.

    As for Parc des Princes, you clearly know nothing, but manage to come off as unbearably smug and arrogant. Yes, they are "tenants", but their current deal runs out through 2043, and it's a lease wherein PSG are expected (and allowed) to do renovation and construction as needed. And very few people currently in professional football are likely to still be active, at least in their current capacity (in the case of players), when the deal runs out, so I don't see why them leasing it would be a factor. And that is assuming the lease won't be extended, or that PSG won't manage to buy it. Maybe they'll even build a new stadium, one that holds 34% more fans than Spurs' one, and has 56% more state-of-the-art. What then?

    Outfought and outwilled by Arsenal, that is quite something.

    Whens Wanyama back @balaks think you missed him more than anyone today. Dembele and Sissoko were passengers and thought Winks did well but Arsenal had surrendered the midfield by then.

    Looks like Wanyama could be out for most of this season from what I hear. Massive blow for us.

    Oh shit. You need someone in January then, guess probably Barkley given the drama on deadline day.

    Wanna buy Fellaini for 50m? He's like an Alonso-Iniesta-Zidane hybrid.

    Anyway back to topic, feck spurs. Accumulator gone already after the first game :lol:

    You deserved the win. Clearly the better team on the day.

    You been linked to anyone other than Barkley? I know Lanzini has been mentioned but he's not exactly a CM.

    Beat Liverpool, lost to Arsenal/Chelsea/United. 3 points out of 12 possible.

    Same, I had a Spurs win and was sure Arsenal would fold. Fecking Wenger.

    With the terrible record at the top sides I think they are mentally screwed for these games, it's upto Poch to turn it around.

    People get too knee jerky about them. Too quick to say theyve arrived and are among the elite and then too quick to say theyll collapse. Truth is they are a consistent and fairly predictable side. They are solid at the back, good and consistent at home for the most part, decently consistent in games they should win but tend to lose in big away games as they arent quite as good as the best teams. Surprise games happen to everyone once in a while like their win vs Madrid, but most of their results are pretty much "as expected". Poch has done well to build a solid and consistent side in a period where nobody has been consistent, but what he really should do is start prioritizing some of the cups to win a trophy actually. I get the feeling that he just trains for the next premier league game and for the other cup games just says do what we always do type thing.

    That's not an away record. Utd have 4 points from a possible 9 against last season's top 5. Only one home game to Spurs 2.

    Thought they were poor today. Neville said in commentary they were getting bullied which I agree with, and to get bullied by Arsenal is quite an achievement.

    Still think they’re a very good side, don’t quite understand all the criticism aimed at them and Poch. Certainly think they’ll make top 4.

    It's their record against the top 6 this season both home and away. 1 home loss, 2 away losses and 1 home win. United drew Liverpool, lost to Chelsea and beat Spurs, so 4 out of 9 possible points.

    Dier is a more than adequate cover for Wanyama's role.

    I Don't think he will be that much of a loss to Spurs in all honesty, not with Winks bursting through.
