    Another lacklustre performance from Spurs. And a bad result to lose away to Brighton. Not good enough by a long way.

    It's a pity that Son's early goal was a hairline offside. And Kane being unavailable for the 2nd half didn't help. But still, a deserved win for Liverpool.

    I called it " more radical than many were predicting", which is somewhat different. Anyhow, I don't want to get too hung up on the political definition of radical, except to say that everything doesn't have to be placed within a flat...

    You can't call a series of firsts "back to baseline" - it's beyond the old baseline to establish a new baseline.
  • GlastonSpur replied to the thread The Biden Presidency.
    I am being serious. He's made a variety of breakthrough appointments - e.g. the first black defence secretary, the first female Secretary of the Treasury, and many more. He's cancelled the Keystone pipeline. He's signed 'existential' executive...

    Well, we don't have a game in hand against the current league leaders, but we do in relation to the team currently in 2nd. But If you prefer to just say "5 points off 1st", then so be it.

    Big game tomorrow night for Spurs. Win that and we'll leap-frog Liverpool, climb into 4th place and be only 4 points off 2nd with a game in hand.

    I reckon Biden has made a pretty good start to his Presidency overall - it's been a lot more radical than many were predicting.
  • Even if it's only 5% (just for example) that's enough to deal the GOP fatal blows in many election races if such voters sit on their hands or vote independent (or even Dem). The Trumpite base greatly over-estimate their political power ...
  • Some of posters in this thread apparently don't take seriously sustainability/green issues in relation to football clubs - engaging instead with a variety of boringly predictable and "hilarious" deflections. What a shame.
  • How green are Premier League clubs? Tottenham top sustainability table - BBC Sport What is the sustainability table? First published in 2019 by BBC Sport and the United Nations-backed Sport Positive Summit, the rankings have been updated along...
  • I've news for you: every club in the Prem has a stadium that can't be used due to Covid-19. And so every club in the Prem is taking a financial hit. Manchester United, for example, reported a $91m loss in the period to June 30, 2020. The article...
  • If that's the case then it's ironic that the USA fought a war to be free of the British Crown, only to create an elected monarch who is apparently above the law and can commit any crimes with impunity.
  • I see. Goals scored early count for a lot. Goals scored late count for little. Ever heard of going up a gear or two only if needed? I guess not.
  • Bailed out? Spurs have one of the best credit ratings going. Many banks are very happy to lend money to us, seeing as we are one of the most valuable clubs in world football and generally - the Covid-era aside - make big profits.
