A Spurs point of view

A Spurs point of view

What made you support Spurs mate?
The theory of push and run football, stylish, fluent, attractive to watch. Players such as Aussie, Ricki, Hoddle, and Waddle. Later I found out it was also my Grandads team so it ran in the family.

Are you happy with how your season is going so far?
Very disappointing, two seasons of finishing 5th, much was expected, and very little delivered.

Martin Jol finally got the boot recently to be replaced by 'One Day' Ramos - what were the thoughts on Jol going and how is Ramos currently being rated?
I was a little disappointed at Jol going, and very disappointed at how the board got rid of him also. Jol was making some mistakes, so I guess something needed to be done, however I thought it went deeper than just Jol. Ramos is now finding this out to, the team lacks confidence.

Will Ramos need signing in January - and will he get them?
Difficult one to speculate on, Jol spent in the region of £30-£40m before he left, so not sure if the board is willing to spend any more. We need to invest in a few areas tho, such as a commanding centre midfielder, and adding to our defence, which is just all over the place at the moment.

Who is the Spurs danger man that Pompey should watch?
Berbatov is obviously always the man to watch, not scoring much in the league, but his passing and ball skills are second to none. On recent games tho an unlikely player has proved himself the one to watch in the form of Steed, by far the on form player for us at the moment.

How do you reckon Spurs will go this season?
Have to say it's looking like the same old spurs this year, so will go for high mid table. May well get a good run in a cup and Europe.

What about Pompey?
Showing some "unusual" good form this season, and fair play to them. Good work rate and play solid as a team. Think some players going on the African cup will determine Pompey's season. If they get through that still playing well, then Europe beckons.

If you could take any Pompey player from our squad and put him in yours, who would it be and why?
Not sure I would pick one individual player, I would rather we took your ethos of playing as a solid unit, that you cant buy.

(Defiantly not Judas tho!)

Go on - who is going to win, Pompey or Spurs?
Of course have to say Spurs, in a classic tight clash 1-2 to us.

good interview, dont agree with the 'unusual good form part' - away from home granted - but there you go. i also feel that after the game you might feel differently about 'not sure I would pick one individual player' as someone that spurs might want in there side... im looking forward to the game and will be amazed if pompey cant break their run of not scoring at home for ages as spurs are awful defensively this season.

Yes, I was going to comment on the 'not sure I'd pick one player'. Can't think of too many that I'd want to pluck from their squad (Keane or Defoe being about it). Wouldn't want Berbatov....(don't like the way he behaved towards Jol). Interesting insight besides that though.

Don't think it was meant as 'not one pompey player would make it at spurs' but more 'a good team ethos is more valuable then any individual player'

Don't rate Berbatov this season at all - he was on fire last season, but has yet to impress this term. From what I can tell, Spurs are unconvincing up front and will struggle to get past our defence - as for their defence . . . well - goalfest anybody?

Bring it on Tracy ... I reckon if Harry sets out his stall with an attacking mind tomorrow Spurs are definately there for the taking.... One player I don't want to see is Kanu we can't afford to carry anybody if we need to score goals - Benji needs to score again soon too otherwise he'll start to get a mental block - Tomorrow should be the game that re-affirms Pompeys position and shows the rest of the premiership that can be as formidable at home as we are away..
