I was sent this wee piece about the scum. I dunno who wrote it so can't give a credit. it's a great read



No league title in 58 seasons
No FA Cup success in 28 seasons
Over 11 years without any sort of trophy
Tottenham’s continual portal of themselves as one of English footballs elite clubs is no more than a fraudulent claim.
They are an average sized club who have not seen any real success for decades. 1 League Cup this century only 2 in 27 years is not the sign of a successful, elite club.
The media continually use the phrase Big 6 to describe Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham. It is supposed to be an all encompassing phrase, grouping the teams as one, raising them above anything else in English football.

But the phrase is odd, because why are Tottenham actually in the Big 6?
They have no recent success whatsoever to boast about. They are the only side in Big 6 to have not won a trophy in the last 11 years. The fact that the media highlight the likes of Arsenal for not winning trophies, but defend Spurs lack of silverware shows that they do not see Arsenal and Tottenham as equals.
When it comes to league titles, Tottenham are 15th in the list of most wins. They are behind the likes of Everton, Aston Villa, Sunderland, Newcastle, Sheffield Wednesday, Leeds, Wolves, Huddersfield and Blackburn.
The year before their second and last league title, Burnley won their second title. The year before that, Wolves won their 3rd.
Currently they sit on the same amount of league titles as Preston North End, Derby, Burnley and Portsmouth.
And yet they position themselves as equals to Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool – who have 51 league titles between them; and Manchester City and Chelsea who have won 9 of the last 15.
They have neither of the historic success, or recent success, to call themselves an elite club.
But they have finished top 6 consistently over the last 10 years. Well done. But just because you finish in the top 6, does not put you on par with the other 5 sides.
We have already seen how far they lag behind in terms of silverware, but lets also look at the other barometer of success the media often use. Finishing top 4 and making the Champions League.
Tottenham have qualified for the Champions League just 5 times in their history.
Superb read. 8)

Liverpool have 6 European Cups now.
Only another 90 to go before they’ve got one for each of their own fans they’ve murdered.
Extremely distasteful comment. Its fuck arse comments like this that make the football Gods continually deny us glory in the Europe and give it to them.
He is just telling the truth :twisted:

He was also a Gooner by all accounts
Had a run in with Clive Allen when he was a coach there over something or other I seem to recall.

Shame, he appeared to be doing a good job in coaching / managing at the lower leagues.

49 is no age, condolences to his family.

He was indeed a Gooner through and through as is his family !
I thought that was why everyone was so sympathetic tbh !
He was once attacked in the Spurs car park by their own fans because of it !
