Rumour Explosion : A Drunken Robinson & More...



"Do you know something that I don't?"               
"Bubbe, I probably know a lot you don't."

So the scene is set. A boozer, a drinker, a small audience. Paul Robinson had just gone outside to take a call from Fabio Capello to say that he'd been called up. Here's the shakedown...

Ramos has the nickname of "The Spanish One," "Berbatov is a bit of a moody ****." Mmmn, so far, so what? I hears you say...

Robbo allegedly said that he was actually quite annoyed at being called up for England recently, as he had plans with his wife and didn't want to ruin them. He added that he would definitely be leaving in the summer and that Lennon, Dawson and Berbatov 
were also leaving.

 
In addition to this also comes from an entirely separate source...

Robinson  and Chimbonda 100% leaving Tottenham. YP Lee deal as good as done back to PSV. Berbatov enquiries made but the THFC have priced him out the market.
Aaron Lennon not going anywhere. Not even Newcastle.

In the softly spoken words of Harry Hotspur, what do you make of that little lot then, my Pedigree Chums?

if we get David Villa then Berbatov is good as gone imo. As good as he is he needs to get more involved or he`ll mood his way out of the team.

question is.. will Villa come to Spurs?

Would like Lennon to stay as I reckon he and Hutton will be formidable next season.

There`s so many rumours about Robinson packing his bags that there doesn`t seem much doubt. As long as the replacement is better then fine by me (never thought i`d say that 2 seasons ago). However... if Robinson is really set to go, why isn`t Cerny playing? He looked very promising (apart from one decision) and if Calamity James can be forgiven and re-made into a world class keeper.. give Radek a chance!

HH I've heard that PR is off too mate. I'm not what you'd call 'ITK' but I'd back your story from what I've heard lately. I think there's smoke and fire here. My own take is it would be no bad move for the team. COYS.

WHAT A LOAD OF SHITE ON YOUR ADVERTISING SITE!

Every player has their price, and if they want to leave, then so be it? As long as there's a team out there wearing the tottenham badge, I'll cheer em on.

Not true. The products and services hawked on here all without exception first rate.

Oh, the editorials? Oh yeah, you've found me out. Awful.

Biz said...

You fucking idiot... what is this? are you really so lame that you just don't even put any effort into your ridiculous 'stories'?

I guess you win cos people think you're great... but ain't it sad?

taking something that people have a genuine interest in and lying to get hits on the site.

Making bucks eh? Can't take 'em with you when you die...

Perosnally, I've always thought the Lennon gossip was complete tosh. He might not be the finished article or a Cristiano Ronaldo but he's still young and he will be given time to fail.
Berbs I fancy will stay.
Robbo & Chombo - can't be sure but I wouldn't put any money on them staying.YPL deadcert gone but HHthis is hardly an exclusive !
So how much DO you make for recycling this stuff ???

Wait and see.


Or am I being a bit extreme?

Robbo gone and Chump will go... Dawson unsure.... Lennon massive improvement needed and would defintely let him go if we could nick Arshavin from Zenit who is faster and has skill and a football brain. Midfield replace as they are the worst in Prem second to Derby... lose Bent keep Berby and Keane and add David Villa..

Harry Hotspur said...

00.36 How much did you pay for reading it? Now run along, dear, man talk.

Robbo is just bitter and twisted.

Can we have a complete ban on gossip and rumour especially if it comes from the press and even if it is direct from someones brother whose sister who once fell under a car driven by the lady who cleans the toilets at Spurs Lodge.Have a rest Harry or even a lie down,go on holiday ,you deserve it.No more gossip and rumours.Lets have crosswords or Soduko to fill the column and wait for official announcements and THE PICTURE with Ramos at the Lodge wearing the shirt and holding the banner aloft.Please.

JimmyG2 said...

No but seriously this squad came 5th twice and won the Carling Cup .Too many changes,in or out, means we have to start again.Dont sell anyone who might make it and sign two or three quality backups or replacements where essential(Goalkeeper,centre mid and left flank)Keep Berba at all costs,and I mean all costs

Anonymous said...

i think berba and dawson are the only ones id like to stay out of the few that you mention, Harry.

i think dawson would provide decent cover for woodgate and king. but i hope that none of these spanish defenders ramos is looking out turn out to be kabouls or rochas.

as for lennon, id love to trade him in. use him as bait for david bentley. think he'd be great with him and hutton on the right. lennons had a poor season me feels. no improvement.

MKRob said...

Maybe you should stop blagging all your so called own info from Fromthelane.co.uk?

Funny how a rumour comes up there and shortly after it appears as exclusive news on your site.

Anonymous said...

I personally think most people on here should just not comment if they find certain articles to be wrong. I think harryhotspur is one of the only places where the rumours are reliable. Give him a break.

Harry Hotspur said...

To f*ckwits various and you know who you are...

1. Article entitled RUMOUR EXPLOSION.

2. You clicked on it.

3. I'm to blame.










And in relation to From The Lane. I am not a member. However I would imagine I'm not in the minority as it has been a closed shop for a dog's age. Either way, what petty little point are you trying to make? A story about Robbo in a pub is copyrighted? Are you retarded? I'm not sure, you are boring.

Harry Hotspur said...

jimmyg2

No but seriously........................................................... your second comment contains speculative gossip and transfer speculation. There has been ever since your first post a very strict ban on such loose talk on this blog.

Might I suggest a lie down or a rest.


Yours sincerely,

Mickey Mouse

Oh come on!, tell us at least where you nicked them from, for Ive seen this on Spurs Community (where the Robbo thing started, but you could of got it from a seperate sorce). and COYS before here, so please tell people were you got this info from unless you claim to be a ITK...

Mysterious Stranger said...

Your story has attracted a lot of retards it seems Harry. That is, considerably more than usual! They must think this is another "Sportingo" type site. They obviously haven't been around long enough to understand the difference.

Ian S said...

"Global village idiot" - quality!! Thanks for brightening my afternoon Harry, looks like you have been on top form. Of course you are right though, it is 100% your fault that we are trawling the Internet looking for random gossip.

Do these f***wits think that everything they read is true, and if isn't, that's a crime? Have they ever read a newspaper??

Football? Oh yes, sorry. We should keep Berbs, or get a ridiculous amount of cash and replace him with someone equal or better (which would be a pretty small list IMHO).

Daws has been one of our most loyal and consistent players, giving his all even when others haven't. He has not had a good season, but I hope Juande and Gus watch some old games and realise the quality he can bring as our no 3 CH.

Lennon may still come good, and could do with at least another half season working with JR.

YPL can probably go now we have Gunter et al. Although, is Gilberto any better???

Robbo was once great, and may be again, but I think his Spurs career is well and truly over. Best wishes at your new club, Paul.

good performance today.. i'll post my views tomoro..

Take Over Rumour,

"I am the best you will ever get, join me and you will be invincible, I know football and Tottenham will be there at the top next season"

Wesley Sonck, replacement of Berbatov.

Braaton of Norway, will bang in them goals, a new Ronaldinho.

and Thomas Heaton the Manchester United Goal keeper will be unstoppable.

"Its coming close, soon I will take over and I will sort out a dream backroom staff and players, Juande Ramos fits into my plans?"

"And am a strong fan of Dimitar Berbatov and Keane."

Ian S:

Cheers, do drop in again, mate.

Please follow suit so I can keep Ian amused.





Mysterious Stranger: Many thanks.

Bimi: New post a comin', sir.

Chimbo - Hutton will be 1st choice right back next season, Bale ditto left back; can't see him warming the bench. Opinion - gone.

Robbo - Pains me to say, but not the player he was 2 years ago. The crime is we can all see his problems - doesn't catch a ball from crosses, elects to punch; does't command his box; a bit slower? Best shot stopper, bar none, in the Premiership though. If we can see the problems, why can't he. New goalkeeping coach required? Opinion - gone (shame).

Lennon - going nowhere. Still young and needs to learn, but quickly. For all the trickery, end product needs massive improvement. Opinion - staying.

Dawson - disappointing season. Should be getting better each season, but this season not a patch on last. Opinion - undecided.

Berbatov - for 30million, gone. Result. Good business. Take the money Levy.

dannyboy another anon here but i agree with you on all that mate really feel that the whole berbatov thing has left people a bit crazy let's sell anyone who doesn't have the badge at heart? too passionate? how does that work exactly? coys.

Wipee is a done deal and injury will not now be risked.

Chimbonda is not 'gone', as the club intends/ed to retain his services, not least because he can play (debatable I know) in any back four position, but his recent performances and contact from his agent (wee Willie) make his departure likely.

Dawson and Lennon, and Jenas, is paper talk.

Robinson is (ego wise) his own worst enemy and it remains to be seen if he is willing to complete for a place; Cerny's loan expires next season.
