  1. PL Weekend 30th/31st

    Another lacklustre performance from Spurs. And a bad result to lose away to Brighton. Not good enough by a long way.
  2. Premier League Gameweek 20

    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.
  3. The Biden Presidency

    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, two-dimensional spectrum of left-centre-right - there are...
  4. The Biden Presidency

    You can't call a series of firsts "back to baseline" - it's beyond the old baseline to establish a new baseline.
  5. 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 orders on climate and environment. He's rejoined the...
  6. Premier League Gameweek 20

    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.
  7. Premier League Gameweek 20

    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.
  8. The Biden Presidency

    I reckon Biden has made a pretty good start to his Presidency overall - it's been a lot more radical than many were predicting.
  9. The Miserable Existence of Twice Impeached Former US President Donald Trump

    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 ... except for their power to damage the GOP. In 4 years...
  10. How green are Premier League clubs? Tottenham top sustainability table

    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.
  11. How green are Premier League clubs? Tottenham top sustainability table

    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 with the criteria and methodology. Teams have been...
  12. Real Madrid and Barcelona's debt

    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 you cite actually points the excellent credit...
  13. The Miserable Existence of Twice Impeached Former US President Donald Trump

    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.
  14. FA Cup | 5th Round | QF draw: Leicester (A)

    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.
  15. Real Madrid and Barcelona's debt

    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.
