I only watch the highlights, if we win and other games are favourable, very rarely listen to the pundits as they get on my nerves.
They could show so much more of the football than ask the opinion of a pundit who knows about as much of what's happening as we do. Not to mention club bias which every pundit has to some degree
 
Are we playing tonight against the Champions of Germany...Well the BBC sport football page has the rather exciting news that Lawrence Shankland of Dundee Utd has been called into the Scotland Squad.
Oh and Alisson the Keeper of The Greatest team in the whole world is close to a return.
BBC agenda against us no never...

The BBC is shit, a handful of good shows but the majority are unwatchable, they're as right wing as the Daily Mail and their sports coverage (with the exception of OSI and JB) is both smug and complete dross.

Time for them to change.....or die.

Why isn't that cunt Ferdinand slaughtering Maguire for going to Utd if it's about trophies? Soppy cunt needs a slap for his bias

Lukaku should be praised Pogba should be looking to leave by Rios logic, bet he won't come out with that.
 
We almost won the league and the champions League in recent years. Had Liverpool not won the champions League last year would the media be calling for all their players to leave? Fuck em ALL fuck em all!
 
I think the sheer GLEE with which the entire media circus is embracing last night, is what's really hitting home.

They fucking HATE us... they couldn't WAIT for a resuit like LAST night... it's fucking EVERYWYERE!
I'm surprised they haven't called for a national holiday so that EVERYONE can take the day off to celebrate!

The most annoying thing is that we've given them EVERY reason and opportunity to laugh at us... and now they are...

LOTS!

Oh please, comapred to other big clubs we are given incredibly favourable treatment. Levy takes most of the blame from the press when results go south, no other manager in the world has a human shield like Poch does with Levy. He can deflect any question about results towards people not understanding our "project" and how we can't compete in the market.

If any other top team in England had the results we have had in the last 9 months, the press would have been kicking lumps out of him. Just think of how Van Gaal, Conte, Mourinho got slaughtered when things started to go wrong and how with Poch it's just "he needs time". We get cushy coverage from the media because we are not taken seriously. Of course we are going to be getting a lot of negative coverage when we just endured the WORST home result in the history of English teams in Europe but overall we are treated with kid gloves. A result like last night in the context of the last 9 months would see most managers getting sacked in the tunnel straight after the final whistle.
 
Got to say the same myself, Spurs seem to get kid gloves treatment (In general) compared to other teams , but that's from the outside, you guys know more about the shit they write about your club. .

One thing that does resonate amongst all fans is that LFC and Utd will always have more spotlight, whether that be good or bad! It seems that everything that is written is with their fans in mind. And it's so fkin boring, I wish they would follow/support the new money clubs rather than the old money clubs

City fan with an affinity for Spurs since 1981! And from the outside I dont think spurs get that rough a deal from the media. But there again all City fans think we're hard done by in the press.

The one thing that is true is that all sports news is written for LFC and Utd fans to digest., and it's boring.

Hmm okay. I disagree, for the past three or four years after even a decent recent the media have gone on about Poch leaving or Kane or Dele or whomever. They never stop with the speculation and this plays into the idea that we're merely CL interlopers soon to return to mid-table mediocrity or at least the Ropey League.

I have no time for Citeh either. You seem a decent chap but most of your fans aren't, you've become everything you used to mock United for being.

I actually have more respect for Man United than Citeh, at least they built themselves up into the juggernaut that they are today whilst you've been handed everything on a plate and yet still find things to whinge about.

As I said you seem okay so nothing personal, just my own opinion.

From a very distant view it's LOVE anything to do with Liverpool and Utd, LIKE anything to do with Woolwich and Chelsea, and pretty MEH on Spurs and City ... that's all about fan base and clicks

Out here Liverpool are still massive (but mostly old fans) as they were THE team when football first reached a worldwide audience, then came Utd and Woolwich, and then Chelsea .... City and Spurs are playing a massive game of catch up, will take generations and a lot of success to change things ...

I know it's 'just' the BBC's Gossip page... but they provide an overview to what the Press are reporting.... EVERY Spurs related article has a negative slant, or headline... look at them!

The problem is not the media's view of "Hasn't won a Trophy Poch" ...they've made their minds up about him... and yet are still happy to tout a 'Trophyless' manager off to Real, or Man Utd at ANY opportunity...

If he's no good, as 'Trophyless' would suggest, why would anyone else want him?

The problem is, and always has been with Spurs...
Our perception of ourselves as a BIG club is there for taking pot shots at... 'cos we haven't done anything Trophy-wise to back it up... and until we DO win something, we'll always give the media a stick (and a narrative) to hit us with.

It's just a case of the longer it goes on, the more creative ways we need to find to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

EVERY TEAM who loses a final or blows a Title winning game, could be described as 'bottling it' ....plenty of teams have done it... Liverppol amongst them... and yet WE are now the 'go-to team' whenever the dreaded "B-word" is mentioned...
and why is that? 'Cos the media remind us of it EVERY time we don't win a trophy...
and they have set it up so perfectly, that they can wheel it out EVERY year it goes on.... they've got us in a proverbial checkmate until we win something... which is harder to do than it looks!

The Jewish links also crop up every Transfer window... again, Levy plays into the hands of the stereotype the media love to associate with us...

Almost EVERY time Spurs or Levy are mentioned when it comes to transfers and money, we're only ever 2 or 3 sly underhand comments away from being labelled 'tight fisted Jews'...
It's always been the way...

To be honest, I quite like the 'seige mentality' of thinking no one likes us... GOOD... I don't like THEM!
