Good evening.

I don’t know about you, but frankly I’ve had enough. Who are Reading? This season is a write off and certain individuals need to take a long hard look at themselves.

The hair sprayed syrup of Glenda Hoddle had it right before a ball was kicked. Many, many fans are genuinely concerned about this …er possible … er maybe probable thing that hasn’t …actually happened. And didn’t, but let’s not deflect attention from what might well have been.

A win against Reading is nothing in real terms; the mistakes have been already been made. We need a proper footballing man in charge of this once great club.

Rodgers is a man with a proper footballing CV, not some one hit wonder Powerpoint merchant. In his whole year at Watford took them into the relegation zone and like Bruce Willis type act of insane bravery he carried the club out of that burning building and into 13th.

Brendan’s next achievement was a spell at Reading running from June to December of 2009.

The next two years were landmarks. Taking over Roberto Martinez’ City side he won promotion from the Championship and Swansea’s first season in the Premier League saw them finish 11th.

At his first initiative was to wait for the transfer window to close before formally announcing that he didn’t actually really want any of Kenny Dalglish’s £100m+ gang of signings but Didier Drogba might be nice.

This season the Reds supremo has already secured 2 points from a possible 12 and one of those was courtesy of an audacious draw against current Champions Manchester City!

Roberto Martinez is another standout top notch manger. In his first job at Swansea he laid solid foundations for the future. Brendan Rodgers made about seven changes, but that’s not the point. This is clearly a man with an ethos.

Since 2009, Bob has courted relegation and bested it repeatedly. If you analyze the number of clubs that sit more or less permanently in the lower echelons of the Premier League all season, you’ll discover that routinely three of those sides tend to get relegated. Has Bob been relegated? No he has not. That’s his legacy.

His record as a man who simply refuses to be relegated has been an attractive facet to a number of dynamic, forward thinking sides. Both Aston Villa and Liverpool tried to poach the Spanish maestro but he has resolutely refused to be tempted away from Dave Whelan’s wallet.

This season Martinez has already set his stall out securing 4 points with ease.

Levy & Co. have clear all the decision making skills of The Three Stooges. The dark days of Santini, as predicted by so very many true supporters of this once great club have returned. The new training ground looks more like a some country club for fat American ladies. Anyone who remotely understands football knows all you need is a pair of high-waisted tracksuit bottoms, some cones and a ball.

The idea you bring in some Johnny foreigner who’s never played the game is laughable. Apparently in the game since 1998, allegedly having worked with Sir Bobby Robson and Joe Mourinho or something I’m actually bored discussing him. No wonder Burnley saw him for what he was. They know how to dodge a bullet in Burnley.


Fans at The Lane need take note. Fervent support of our football team is demonstrated on a routine basis by those that make the decision to engage and pursue away games either in the flesh or on TV.  Always outnumbered, never outgunned, our away support simply reflects all the brilliant millions of boys and girls overseas that believe and will on Spurs every single game.

Too many turn up at The Lane as if they’re ‘something special’, they’re not. Stop wasting a seat. Stop booing. Hey, get the message? just stop.
