A “nearly team” that bores or, a “nearly team” that excites? To bore or not to bore? That is my question to Tottenham Hotspur.
Writer: Hot Tottingham
To lose without a fight or, to go down fighting? To stand proud in defeat or to leave the pitch in shame, not having given it your all?
You know, it is perfectly possible to be defensively strong and still excite. It is possible to beat poor teams more easily by 3-0 or more than it is to just hold on to a fragile one goal lead.
I don’t know…will a dull 3 points really make a difference to our season right now? More so than the team playing great football but losing or drawing?
I don’t like losing so I may well have to settle again for the three points any old way we get it. But our players don’t wanna play to bore us do they? Surely they will start to enjoy their football more by showing us some attacking flair as well as some steely defensive organisation.
This is Bournemouth that we are playing next. They have had a very poor season. And they need the win more than we do. Will they go for it or will they park the bus? Do we go for it, take the lead and then also park the bus? Is the World round? Is the Pope Catholic? And what does it sound like when doves cry?
Right now I’m thinking that a rip-roaring 5-4 will be better than a dull 0-1. But I don’t wanna see Spurs lose. But, I also don’t wanna waste yet another 90+ minutes of my life watching paint dry whilst seeing Jose have another barney with the 4th official because the VAR is blind. Harry giving Serge a whack on the chin for yet another wayward cross might be fun…Son scoring an own goal from the centre circle just to piss Hugo off may bring a smile to my face.
Cherries 5-6 Cockerels!
