Chelsea supporters wish it was Groundhog Day at their club. They've gone from a team that consistently challenged for cups and titles to whatever they are now (a lower mid-table side- despite spending more than a billion quid over the last couple of seasons).

All purchased by the Russian oligarch's billions. Chelsea hadn't won a title since the forties or fifties before he arrived. Even previously small clubs such as Man City can achieve huge success if they throw enough money at a project.

Lost at home to Chelsea, arsenal and West Ham in the same season.

Atmosphere was more tourist then hostile today. This is the problem with modern day football, it’s all gone cooperate!!

Throw into this that VAR takes the edge of a derby because everything is evaporated from the game, that there is no blood sweet and tears involved and the north London derby is just another away day game. The premier league this season is a below average league, the fact City hasn’t been at their best and still going to win the league proves how sub standard it is and no semi finalists in Europe top 2 comps just validate this league.

The game is completely soft and nice.

Arsenal did it well today, they feigned injuries to take sting out of the game, odegaard spent more time on the floor pretending to have been shot, they stuck everyone behind the ball playing 4 CB and a line in 5 in the middle, was the most defensive side other then West Ham and sheff United to come to the lane this season and they turned into wimbledon from the 80’s swinging in under the crossbar and blocking. Two goals from a yard out! Says it all. When spurs didn’t get those penalty shouts, commit a foul, stop being soft, so many times they could tripped before they got out! The dark arts are needed, this spurs team need more commitment and gamesmanship.

71 minutes for a yellow card FFS what has happened to the game. It’s soft

The atmosphere inside the stadium was fine for a NL derby.
Postecoglou as I've said before is technically naive, presumably he got away with things
in the SPL but he isn't/won't get away with it in the Prem.
Bentancur and Maddison can't play together and Sonny isn't a centre forward.
The team for the second half should have been picked from the start.
Since Pep did a number on Vicario so has everyone else, and how the manager hasn't taught the team to
defend at corners god only knows?A mate said when Arry was there, no one got beyond the front post.
Postecoglou appears to be a slow learner, hopefully that won't continue in the next season.

Ange says: I think we played well in parts and the way we want to play unlike the last two away games!

Bloke has lost the ****g plot...... liverpool could and should've had six or seven in the first half. If that's what he calls playing well, then where the **** did we get this bloke from!

4-0 down before we even got going. I let him off if it was the first time it had happen, but it isn't is it. We was 4-0 down to Brighton. The bloody bloke is thick and as stubborn as pig ****! Got no hope of achieving anything under this manager and I say it again, until the board has a direction of a football club it wont change. Take your brewery, skywalk, NFL and F1 Race track and **** off from our club! I'm sick and tired of this reading of all is this exceptional infrastructure, revenue that makes us among the biggest clubs in Europe and spending money of players who haven't made it at the other top clubs in Europe or picking up marque players from teams getting relegated. We haven't taken a top player from any big clubs in Europe or even established mid table teams like West Ham, Everton etc taking their best player! Recruitment has been **** and every time we get linked with top players like Anthony Gordan at Everton or Luis Suraez when at Ajax, he wont compete for the signings, because he wont offer anything like a big club would. The scouts the director and chairman need to be replaced. There once was a football club in Tottenham, its been replaced by a team residing at a entertainment centre!

All the youth players that are so highly spoke about wont come through the ranks.

0-3 fulham
0-4 Newcastle
0-2 Chelsea
2-4 Liverpool (was 4 down)

That is as bad as last! Lets also be quite frank.

10-15 minutes spells at home has turned it around by spurs this season in 4 or 5 games this season, the rest of the game the opponent has led and looked comfortable. Sheff United, Brentford, Luton of the top of my head.

Failed to beat West Ham this season, They lost 6-0 and 5-0 to Arsenal and Chelsea this season! Lost twice to Wolves as well!

This has been a real shocker of a season, seriously if you look at it, so many teams have excuses!! Spurs by mid month May will have played 41 games!!! Liverpool will have played 60! Cant be fatigued, should've been prepared for the opponent with maximum amount of sessions, and the manager has been hell bent on being stubborn to play one way and one only and that arrogance is why he should be ashamed of himself, because he has taken the piss out of his fellow mangers this season by showing a complete lack of respect to them, they must love preparing for spurs with only a few days, because they know how spurs will line up and play in a couple of sessions.

Ange had it easy this season, 5th and Europa league and Thursday night, he'd be best losing all 3 remaining games and making sure we don't get Europe at all, that way he can **** off and we can give someone a chance to come in and prepare correctly. If he goes on to prove me wrong please throw this back at me, I be pleasantly surprised, however there is no hope of that, because after 10 months its clear to me there is no developing team under this regime and it isn't just him, the entire setup from the chair down needs ripping out! 

Don't be fooled by the infrastructure work Levy has brought to the club, it means nowt to the footballing side of Tottenham, just a means to a wage for him and the shareholders!

If you take away the freak 4-0 win at Villa, Spurs haven't won away since Forest on 15th December!

in those games scored 9 goals and conceded 22 goals in 8 games, that's relegation form with 3pts!!

Two interesting posts Tony.
I agree with a lot of what you say.
I don't like to say it but we played the first 8 games without Bantencur who had a serious
injury and then got maimed by Cash of Villa. Postecoglou seems obsessed with him, but in truth
he's not the same player pre injury and he palpably can't play with Madison; shades of Lampard and Gerrard.
I hope he can change, but the manager appears to be a one-trick pony with no plan B.
Bissouma since the African cup and Porro have been stealing a living, whilst Skippy would be a great replacement (he gives 100%),
which the former doesn't. Vicario has been exploited since Pep did a number on him, yet again the manager has done nothing about it.
Sonny ain't a centre forward and improved rapidly once Richarlason came on Sunday.
Two at the back is rid'iculous We've been sussed and have been for a considerable time, I can't for the life of me understand why he hasn't
