If you’re anything like me, you’re probably staring at your screen with a face as long as a horse, trying to pick yourself up after the news that our first game (and rare first game at home) has been cancelled due to something about riots…or something like that!
This means that our first Premier League game of the 2011/12 season is away to Man United. It’s almost as if they knew there would be a disturbance and thought this would be a fun way to start the season for Spurs. Anyway, this is a game that unless you live in the land of fairy tales you know we won’t win! Therefore, why don’t we play our youth/reserve team against the Red Devils, and I don’t just mean this game, I mean every fixture against United. The FA/Referees Association/EPL clearly won’t allow us to win a game against United. The evidence to this is clearly presented every game with the FA sending their best men to ensure that the 3 points for United is the only outcome. So play the youth, save our first team squad any injuries in a game we won’t win anyway. You never know, with Paul Scholes retied, we might be left with shins intact to run another day.
This will give our youth/reserve team a run out, a bit of experience and ensures that first team members remain injury free to play in games we could genuinely win. I honestly feel we could beat any team at and ground in the Prem…except for Man U..simply because illegitimate refereeing, un-sportsmanship and phenomenal luck are all against us in every single game and that unless the FA decides they like us, or dislike United, we won’t be able to beat 14 men.
Please feel free to disagree with me, but we are fighting an un-winnable battle, trying to climb out of a bottomless pit of cheating and un-sportsmanship. Why waste energy on it when you could focus on winning matches against the lower teams in the Prem…teams we should be beating.
Right…point raised…now I need to scan eBay for a Ladbrokes endorsed plasma TV and some new Nike’s. They seem to be in abundance at the moment…….
