Spurs need a bit of Viagra

I'm still 'Out of the Office'. Posting via a mobile phone.

Either this has worked and technology deserves a warm hug of affection or it hasn't and this submission has been lost somewhere in cyberspace, forever drifting like the Littlest Hobo, never quite finding a home. You'll probably be hoping for the latter.

No such luck for you then.

Talking of home, I've spent the past three days moving residence (I have a huge collection of Levy effigies) and will be without a broadband connection until Friday as long as the BT engineer turns up and my Simultaneous Provide goes according to plan.

I'm also getting Sky installed, which is something I haven't had for a year due to my last property sitting in front of very tall and very annoying trees meaning reception was non-existent. I've been streaming football and going to the pub in its absence and tbh it's been a refreshing sabbatical not to watch Richard Keyes and Jamie Redknapp fabricate controversy and hype. However, I've always enjoyed the pantomime and will be glad for the coverage simply because I've grown tired of delayed coverage on the streams. That and Chinese John Motson styled commentary is far too excitable for my likening.

Football on ITV is also a joke and I as much as I don't actually mind the Beeb, I find myself screaming abuse at Adrian Chiles and his yo-yo voice which annoyingly increases and decreases in volume. Adrian, word of advice, whispering doesn't go down too well on television. Speak up, stick a bit of oomph into it man. Having him host Match of the Day with those two paragons of personality, Lee Dixon and the caveman, must surely be proof of the BBC experimenting in subliminal mind control. How else do you manage to get through it without falling into a coma?

So normal blogging service to be resumed over the weekend. Although will be out on Sunday for the best part of it. Got a ticket for a show. Will also be making some changes, not directly with this blog but more so with my online activity. I've decided for various reasons to exile myself from Glory-Glory.co.uk. Its a sacrifice for the greater good and one that will benefit both parties. I've become far too accustomed to the culture of posting there to the point where its become too much of an influence on my blogging over here.

As for little old Tottenham, results over the weekend went in our favour and a win tonight away to Hull will see a much needed gap between us and the free fallers below appear.

Not read any papers or websites, so don't know what Redknapp has been telling the press this week - although I'd hazard a guess it has something to do with the congested fixture list. All I know is, we should have all our first-teamers back and ready for action. If the UEFA Cup cock-up (down) was limp, then this evening must be nothing more than rock hard for the full 90 minutes. No more last minute premature accidents which have embarrassed us on the past four Prem occasions away from the Lane thank you very much.

I've been posting articles best described at 'Battle Cries' for the best part of the season, proclaiming the importance of the game and how imperative it is to claim all points. I'm now quite bored of doing this because we always seem to falter and fail. So I'm not going to say anything more on the subject. It's now over to Tottenham to do the talking on the pitch.

Would love to see us take the game to Hull and have a right go at them, really aim to brush them aside and show some quality to take us into the next 2/3 home games and really push away from the dross down at the bottom. I get we are dross at the moment but dont think we will get a better chance than now to escape from it.

Moving home? Bit drastic. Did the COYS/Official Spurs forum boys track you down via WHOIS?

Simultaneous Provide? Good luck with that.

Sky? You Judas! How can you be critical of their coverage and yet pay them £40 or so a month? Or is this one of those 'you only have the right to criticise the government if you vote' type of scenarios?

Thats a stupid comment...wouldnt everyone agree that 80% of the sky service is complete drivvel??

but yet that 20% is unmissable..which is alot like spurs this season. were paying the money to watch the crap on the off chance were there when the magic happens.

the draw with arsenal..the win against liverpool.

i love how you just want to cause arguments without actually saying anything relative or accurate...and not even use a point of contact??

Is that last bit directed at me?

Sky might be massive muppets when it comes to the grand slams and super sundays and their overwhelming bias and anti-bias (that's when they start hating on someone for the sake of proving they are not always bias towards them)but they are first class when it comes to coverage and commentry.

Apart form when Alan Smith can be heard.

Because my freeview box only picks up BBC1, BBC2, CBBC, BBC3, BBC4, BBC News.

It's a conspiracy I tells ya.

Can anyone honestly see us turning up tonight? Don't want to be the doom and gloom merchant but it's Spurs. When do we ever follow up the hype with a performance?
