tricky: i'm not claiming it's a shoo-in or we can start lording it over that lot. far from it. until it's mathematically certain i'm still expecting us to choke
what i was seeking to do was counter the hysterical doom mongering shite derived by some from the failure to capture a lethal convertor of the many many chances we make
in any analysis you have to also consider what those around you have done or not done. ourselves, everton & Woolwich are largely "as you were". it's a million miles from "season over Levy you cahhhhhnt"

all to play for

Fool what you want, your life or your jewels?
Yeah woulda broke their record i do believe.

hope it was a case of us saying no, rather than siggy saying no. Would do wonders for the lads confidence if we did, and would be disastrous if he did.

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas says midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson, who was the subject of interest from his former club Reading on deadline-day, has a future at the club. "He's a player that we believe a lot in, and in his future here," said Villas-Boas. "We couldn't allow him to leave."
 
I really have faith is Siggy. Sure he's been disappointing. i'm not going to blame bad luck alone for him not doing amazingly well, but for him to have played as well as he did at Swansea and to be as young as he is, he'll come good.

I'm very rarely proud of myself
I've had a few jobs over the years, different companies, but doing the same shit. Generally took me months to settle in, get to know my colleagues, get up to speed with strategies, etc. pretty sure the same is true for footballers.

The likes of Sig and Dempsey are pretty much right on the curve as far as I'm concerned, considering how long they've been with us. Both have proved themselves with previous clubs and whilst we may not be playing to their strengths, they will improve further. The more they get used to our style of play, the more they get to know the rest of the time, the better they will become.

I say give them time.
 
With Dempsey I think its more a case of big fish in a small pond at Fulham and he's been found out at spurs. he's not really played well but its hard to keep him out the team with the goals he scores. Its almost the opposite of Siggy who plays well enough (most of the time) but gets nowhere.

I wouldn't say found out, he was the main player at Fulham and their play was built around him to a degree. That hasn't been the case at us and he has had trouble adapting.

At Fulham Dempsey had the luxury of being allowed to drift in to the centre from the left wing, this mean't he could quite easily lose his marker (the RB) and find space between the lines. At Spurs he plays between the lines so the Centre backs know to pick him up. So essentially, he's doing the same job but in a more difficult way.
