Perfectly possible, although I would suspect fans rather the club. Other possibilities: more money from insurance than compulsory purchase for Archway, and, well, it is a sheet metal works, so they do have flames - industrial accident?

Where did Kane come from? He reminds me of le tissier, but ....you know......with a lot more energy.

Spurs, especially at White Hart Lane, really are our bogey team. We always seem to play badly there and Spurs always seem to play well, no matter what their form prior to that.

I have no complaints today - Everton just didn't do enough, quickly enough, with the ball and Spurs just looked hungrier and a yard more determined than us, pretty much from the equalising goal.

Looks a good player, there’s a few English strikers that have suddenly appeared out of no where that look handy. There’s that kid for WBA, Kane and Charlie Austin. If they can keep it up for the 2nd half of the season, it looks well for the national team to have a bit of strength in depth for a change.

Anyone who makes that utter scumbag Mourinho dig into his Excuses Bag after a heavy defeat is alright by me.

Is he really a scumbag? I don't like his football style, and I would genuinely have rather had Wenger teams over the last 15 years than Mourinho teams at Arsenal, for all their silverware. He is very successful. He is certainly the best manager now, and possibly the best manager ever in England, at changing for the better the shape or strategy of his team in the middle of a match. All managers have an excuses bag. I think he says some stuff just to wind people up.

I am glad Spurs won though, as much for the manner of it as the fact of it.

I like Mourinho, always have. I was just thrilled to see a Tottenham team playing so well, and so coherently

Brilliant result for Spurs. Kane seems to be growing with each game.

Yes he is a scumbag. A quite brilliant manager of course but a nasty piece of work whose eye twinkle seduces many into thinking he is something else.

Oh absolute nonsense. You're the sort of football fan who would think Ferguson was a twat as well.

Mourinho plays to win and his psychological mind games are present at all times. He will defend his players wherever possible - and that's why his players play so well because of that protective cordon he puts up. That's fairly obvious.

The notion that Mourinho plays negatively has surely been destroyed by Chelsea's performances this season. They are defensively minded (apart from yesterday lol) and yes, a Chelsea side that is 2-0 up rarely loses or concedes, but it's part of an overall plan where, if they are ahead, they will not expend energy needlessly.

Oh indeed, most of his players love him but I think he is a nasty, lying, cheating creep.

I did not think that about Ferguson.

Don't be silly. There are dozens of examples of him playing negatively, which isn't to say he always does it.

He absolutely does it when it suits. This notion that Mourinho has become a knight in shining footballing armour, galloping along to save attacking football, is fucking ridiculous. He doesn't - never has a nd never will- give a shit about 'the game'. All he cares about is his own career.

I have absolutely no problem with that at all - he's a brilliant coach/manager. But let's save the sainthood talk for others possibly more deserving.
