Is Former Spurs Star Gareth Bale A Cheating Foreigner In Spain (Like Liverpool’s Luis Suarez Is In England)?

IS former Spurs Star Gareth Bale recapturing the form that made him  a great in England? Yes. And no. He’s yet to score a stunning goal. But he is slipping around a little. Which makes us wonder: is the noble Briton now a cheating foreigner, like Liverpool’s Luis Suarez has been portrayed in England?

This is a snapshot of Bale reliving the glory days at White Hart Lane in Real Madrid’s match against Seville last night:

Spurs: Andros Townsend Earns Makes Manchester City’s Adebayor Look Even Luckier

Screen shot 2013-10-19 at 09.32.14

 

ANDROS Townsend Watch: A look at the England’s new great hope.

The Mirror leads with news that the Spurs winger is on 16,000 a week. Every week. It choses to compare Townsend’s new wage packet not with that of a nurse or teacher but with Manu Adebyaor, the Spurs striker on £170,000-a-week. Darren Lewis writes:

Andros Townsend could yet become a target for rival clubs after Tottenham’s reward for his England heroics was a new four-year deal worth ‘just‘ £16,000 a week.

Spurs Monkey Balls: Mixed-Race Loveable Yido Andros Townsend Is Enslaved By The Ridiculous Society of Black Lawyers

COMMENT of the day comes Peter Herbert of an outfit known billed as the Society of Black Lawyers, a name that manages to be both sinister and laced with a pretentious Sixth formers ideas of grandeur. He wants to admonish the FA for Roy Hodgson’s monkey-laden England pep talk.

 Roy Hodgson’s comments may not have been made with the intention of causing offence as he has explained with the backing of the FA, nonetheless, offence was caused,’ writes Herbert in a letter to the FA calling for a full and proper investigation.The FA’s statement also confirmed that they had not received any complaints from the England players and therefore the matter was closed. The comments of the FA smack of “institutional racism” bearing in mind the Lawrence Inquiry definition of “unwitting racism”.’

Spurs: The Sun Goes Looking For Racism In Andros Townsend’s Space Monkey

THAT the Sun has little time for Roy Hodgson is no great shock. He is, after all, guilty of not being the Sun’s columnist and England would-be legend Harry Redknapp. And so it is that one day after Roy’s Rover  have made it into the World Cup Finals by winning their tricky qualifying group, the Sun wades in with an Andros Townsend  RACE ROW:

Arsenal’s Theo Walcott only needs to beat Spurs ‘superstar’ Theo Walcott to be a World Cup legend

PA-17884069

HOW good has Spurs’ Andros Townsend become since he scored in England’s 4-1 win over Montenegro?

Tony Cascarino (Times):

I felt for Theo Walcott on Friday, sitting in a TV studio watching his replacement have a great game. Walcott would have wanted Andros Townsend to do well for England — just not too well! It’s a strange mix of feelings when you see your rival excel.

Harry Redknapp says he has no grudge against nasty Spurs and those untrustworthy, clueless FA fools

COMPARE and contrast Harry Redknapp with these two extracts from his new book:

“Daniel Levy) was the first person to ring me up to wish me luck when I took over at QPR, and even on the night I left Tottenham, the car phone rang and it was Daniel. “Harry, let’s keep in touch,” he said. “I hope we can still be friends.” I thought, He’s got some front. He’s just sacked me and now he wants to be mates. But we have stayed in touch. I’m not one for grudges.”

Spurs: report says AVB gave West Ham no credit – but he did

PA-17832335

FOLLOWING  West Ham’s 3-0  win at Spurs, David Hytner wrote in the Guardian:

Sam Allardyce once speculated that he might be taken more seriously as a tactician and, therefore, considered for the very top jobs, if he had a European-sounding surname. At White Hart Lane on Sunday, the West Ham United manager contented himself with aping Spain’s 4-6-0 formation, which had triumphed at Euro 2012, to enjoy a memorable 3-0 win. He positively basked in the post-match acclaim. ‘No, no, don’t call me a managerial genius (but you can if you want)’, was the subtext to a line from his press conference. André Villas-Boas hated it. The Tottenham Hotspur manager gave Allardyce and West Ham absolutely no credit. He said that their goals had come from a set-piece, a fluke and a one-man break against two of his defenders. Allardyce’s tactics had emphatically not thrown him. “It’s nothing to do with the strategy but you can write whatever you want,” Villas-Boas huffed. Having been outwitted in the second-half by Chelsea’s José Mourinho the previous weekend, this was a low point. Allardyce is riding high.

Spurs: Police evict Tottenham fans for calling themselves Yids as West Ham fans respond with a little Hitler humour

PA-17770714

DID the Chant Police arrest anyone at the Tottenham Hotspur v West Ham United match? The BBC reported that one Spurs fan was arrested for saying “Yid” at the match. Yeah. First they came for the Yids who called themselves Yids…

This Spurs terror was held on suspicion of committing a public order offence.

The rest of the pubic around him sang song about Yids. They were not arrested.

Spurs fans tweet an easy win over West Ham United and Arsenal fans say ‘get Wilshere off’

FOOTBALL is a funny old game. The pundits get their opinions picked apart on Match of the Day and in the newspapers because tipping the outcome of a match is no simple science. Arsenal Gent has noticed a few Spurs tweets before Tottenham lost 0-3 to West Ham United:

The Smell Of Victory: The Scent Of Football

SMELL that? That is the smell of Liverpool FC.

L4Men leads with the intense freshness of Robbie Keane and the garlic-infused sparkle of Fernando Torres.

Note the virile blend of frustration and star anise which finishes down with undertones of second-hand tyre and gold top.

This is Liverpool’s attempt to dethrone Beckham as the official smell of football. Right now L4Men is the official scent of the Premier League, but we can expect Liverpool’s rivals to up the stakes and take more vigorous approaches to the challenge of advancing the brand.

Here are some of the other odours that should be wafting through the grounds next season:
