Good evening.

Maison Hotspur hasn’t a spare vase, jam jar or fluted pint glass so thank you to those who threw flowers after this morning’s matinee.

What does make a real difference to proceedings is when you encounter a footballer who doesn’t get your goat. Maybe A&E is out there spending £4M on a house and having a full blown hairdressing salon installed – at least he has the gumption to keep it under wraps – as he knows the only men who could have ever let that information fall into the public domain and lived it down were Liberace and David Coverdale (c.1987).

No, old A&E deserves our praise. In a frank interview a while back he revealed that football is just a job to him. He owns a car, but also an Oyster Card. And now we get quotes far too many players seem unable to spit out.

“Like I said, I don’t want to move to another club. If I have a good feeling with my chairman I will stay. I don’t have a reason to move, even to play in the Champions League, we can do it with Spurs. We have done it once already, so why not again?”

Now I’m not getting misty eyed because he’s staying, although that’s just dandy by me. I’m genuinely impressed because here is a very honest and decent human being who actually acknowledges that he is part of the situation. We have done it once already. so why not again?

This is what we are after. Something a bit more considered than, “I like go play  Chelsea big club.” Or whatever the snake oil quotes from Modders were.

Here, boys and girls is a man prepared to share the previous success and the burden of the task ahead. He acknowledges he was part of the achievement and be default part of the failure to replicate it. But he wants to go on. Not bail.

A&E we salute you.

    Didn’t Modric come out with the same sort of spiel before he he came out with the Chelsea stuff?

      Do you have those quotes then you ‘orrible (but quite possibly correct, chortler?).

      • TMWNN says:

        ‘I love Tottenham and its fans, especially TMWNN. With his support, I’m sure we can go on to great things and win the CL. I’ll never leave, even if Chelsea come a calling’

        Verbatim!

        I believe this is the quote Harold from modders before he left for honeymoon, to be swallowed up by the sea only able to link to the outside world by those trusted and well versed fellows at the daily mail, gawd bless em…”Yes, it is true. I am happy and enjoying it here. The fans are amazing, the club is amazing, My fellow Croatians are here — I am not missing anything. I think this club can achieve a lot of great things, I think we can fight for trophies, the EPL or cups. Like I said, I am happy here and not thinking about anything else.”

    We salute you Mr. A&E and your various superb do’s, a sure sign of a fine upstanding young man.

    Modders has the look of a greasy, spotty, unkempt youth circa 1987.

    Benni is quite a character, on his day as good as Cole, or bridge but when disinterested he can be atrocious . But I do think he’s the real deal. All we need is a team of bae’s……..

    Why the fcuk do you have to talk in riddles, just get to the point, and speak in clear English, stop bullshitting!

      I can just imagine you at a movie, screaming at the screen after the opening titles… “FFS Get on with it, I need to be somewhere in 10 minutes”.

      Sometimes the ride is the thing old bean, not the getting there… Ask Beyonce!

      • MysteriousStranger says:

        Actually, the movie I imagine Des at would be “Iron Man 2” or “Transformers 3”.

        Chewing gum for the brain. :whistle:

        I asked her this morning, but she just shook her ass at me. I don’t know what that means?

        I did report her to the donkey botherer’s society though.
