Eddie, you didn't really put our life savings on Spurs to beat crappy old Newcastle, did you?
What a fiasco this season has been and become. With all the Cyber huffing and puffing you'd think we'd all fallen from the sky last week hadn't been through all this before. Spurs have been making a fist of it for a dog's age. No consolation when you've schlepped out to watch a side with top four aspirations deliver a performance that only serves to underline their league position.
Looking around the Net tonight there's a fair element of Witch Hunting but the problems are beyond the individual errors, there's a broader malaise at The Lane. Incompetence? Ha ha, close. Complacency. This lot think they've the job done. Trophy won, Europe in the bag, autographs all the way to the Bentley dealership.
These are the same players, Jol fans, who began to strut, then switch off, then throwaway leads last season and the beginning of this. And they still haven't learned a damn thing.
Poyet was clearly not only embarrassed but bewildered as to how this shiftless mob had failed to maintain the new discipline that he thought had been successfully instilled since he and Ramos took charge.
"You have to be careful what you say. I'm trying to be calm and not make a mistake, when I'm calm in a few days I can chat about this game... It's going to be a long week for everyone at the club."
These are the words of man incandescent. Translation?
"I want to apologise publicly to everyone who paid good money to watch the perfumed ponces who wasted an hour and a half of our time today. I plan to scream and throw small pieces of furniture at them initially, but by God if they don't sort themselves out they'll be wishing they left with Paul Stalteri."
Paradise is where we were after deservedly beating Chelsea, a genuine top tier European side,and winning the Carling Cup. Top Five? Fifth rate Guest House Paradiso is where at right now. Unlike the movie, we need to demonstrate we're not run by imbeciles. It's my belief we're not, but we are staffed by some.
