I think it's fair to conclude that that did not really go as planned. Instead of taking the game to our hosts from the off, we were a tad off-colour and distrait, and the early initiative having been up for grabs for any willing taker, Southampton had a whirl at it.

One of my cohort of Spurs-watchers was fairly underwhelmed by the entire binge yesterday, which rather goes to show that you can never be too sure of things; but I fancy that if you had been sitting close enough you might have heard me purr at certain points.

1. Off the Boil

No doubt about it, that performance stank like the rancid contents of last week's lunch, left to its own devices in the AANP refrigerator. No man (bar the boy Davinson Sanchez) escapes censure. Despite having successfully negotiated the tests of Dortmund, Liverpool and Real blinking Madrid for goodness sake, by the oh so devastatingly subtle technique of sitting back and then countering like the dickens, the slightly more dubious ploy yesterday appeared to be to go into it toe to toe, and trust that good would triumph over evil.

Barcelona (AFP) – Barcelona striker Ousmane Dembele, who has been sidelined since September, has been cleared to make his comeback in Thursday’s Copa del Rey clash against Celta Vigo.

Barcelona manipulated Dembele: Dortmund boss

EPL Talk at related • 0 views

Berlin (AFP) – Borussia Dortmund’s CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke on Sunday accused Barcelona of manipulating Ousmane Dembele in a bid to force the German club to sell the want-away winger to the Spanish giants.

Dortmund suspended Dembele indefinitely a week ago when the 20-year-old boycotted training after the German club rejected an initial bid from Barcelona.

Dembele suspended as Dortmund reject Barcelona bid

Berlin (AFP) – Borussia Dortmund on Thursday said they had rejected an offer from Barcelona for Ousmane Dembele, as the wantaway forward was suspended for missing training.

Dortmund said a move by Dembele to the Camp Nou, where he is being lined up as a replacement for Neymar, was unlikely, after they turned down an offer that did not reflect the young winger’s “extraordinary” value or the current state of the transfer market.

Awesome Arteta can be key to Arsenal success!

Arsene Wenger should be able to select Mikel Arteta to start for Arsenal tomorrow against Stoke. The Spaniard is due for a final test today, but should be fine to regain his place tomorrow. His contribution will be vital if Arsenal are to have a good second half of the season, and he may well be the reason why Wenger did not buy a defensive midfielder as many thought he would.

Spurs are through to the semi-final of the League Cup courtesy of an emphatic 4-0 victory over Newcastle United. Tottenham spent the second half pinging the ball around with an exuberant freedom rarely seen during the past few years. Cracking football, plenty of goals, a vibrant atmosphere including a full contribution from thousands of loyal, loud Geordies and to make it just like the good old days there was even a miscreant visitor bodily carried out by a posse of stewards and police.

High Comedy At Spurs

Several years ago I spent an agreeable few days in Venice. Pretty soon I ditched the guidebook and ended up just meandering through the narrow streets or toodling round the canals on the vaporetti rather than seeing the sights. I loved the atmosphere but didn't achieve very much.

A quarter pounder with onions outside the Colonel's burger van in the Paxton doesn't quite have the same ambience as a macchiato and ice cream in San Marco but the pleasant disorientation is not dissimilar, a blissful disconnect between surroundings and emotions, being there but not fully involved.

The unexpected victories are often the best. If you truly thought Spurs could beat United, I take my hat off to you, because I didn't, and enjoyed this win more than most precisely for that reason. Every player exceeded my expectations and the manager's tactics and motivation were spot on.

Sure, we nearly threw it all away more of giving away goals and penaltieslater but this is Spurs, and the overall performance more than compensated for the tension of the last 15 minutes.

Can Carroll fill Dembele absence?

TottenhamBlog.com at related • 1 view

Spurs fans are generally agreed that Moussa Dembele has been missed on the left side of defensive midfield and the majority opinion also suggests that Tom Huddlestone is struggling to fill his place.

Hudd is returning after a long injury absence and while he's earned praise from AVB, there are criticisms of pace, which he never really had, while on Saturday there was an inability to clear the first defender from constant open play and set piece situations.

Arsenal have been struggling with injury problems since the start of the season (where have I heard that before), and the Premier league game against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday is potentially a season decider.
