    Kyle Walker's new valuation at Β£60 million is O.T.T. but it is a good move by Chairman Daniel Levy. Why solve a right back problem for another top four rival if they are not prepared to pay the asking rate. If Walker was sold for Β£50 million that would be a very good deal, but in the crazy silly season of a billion dollar transfer market, putting down the $60 marker is sound business. Spurs showed at the end of the season they could win without Walker or even Danny Rose - so receiving a joint Β£100 million for the duo would be excellent business, but spare a thought for Sheffield United because both players came from that club and the irony is that both only played a handful of matches for that club. The other irony is that Walker and Rose grew up in Yorkshire, but could end up playing in Lancashire for the two Manchester clubs. Of all the football teams in Yorkshire, only Huddersfield are in the Premier League, and they got there with a memorable play-off win last month. The major Yorkshire powers are still in the lower divisions a.k.a. Leeds, Sheffield United, Sheffield Wed and even Hull City were relegated this year - but if you sell your best players, it is hard to remain in the Premier League and even harder to collect Β£100 million on the Premier League Transfer Monopoly game.

    How can any Spurs fan be disappointed when Spurs have not been runners up for the past 54 years. Our criticism of Daniel Levy also needs to be reexamined because his Top 6 finishes are only matched by a period of top 6 six finishes between 1899 and 1907.

    What feels odd is that there are still two more games to be played though the season itself feels finished and done. Levy has also set the marker for the future with the stadium build. The Tottenham chairman for all the daft criticism that comes his way, including me - on actual records has done a phenomenal job as a Chairman. Sometimes it pays to look at the actual data to get a real sense of perspective about what success actually looks like. For sure the disappointment would be if this team does not land silverware in the coming 2017-18 season - but the season has not finished, so we as Spurs fans should take care to continue enjoying these "best of times'.

    #1 Tottenham have a waiting list of 40,000 for season tickets, so it is about time they built a larger stadium. Chelsea will be increasing their capacity from 41,000 to $60,000 in a couple of years time - but these capacities are mandated by the municipal councils. Spurs got approval to use the top deck of Wembley stadium for Premier League games, so that will be 90,000 crowds - but they did the same for the Champions League - BUT they did not learn a single lesson from Arsene Wenger's experience because playing temporarily at Wembley while the Emirates Stadium was being built was detrimental to their results. They too had an awful Champions League campaign and struggled to make a "home" at Wembley. What seems on paper like a marvelous thing is actually not that great - and for Spurs the larger pitch is one problem they have not solved, but at White Hart Lane the atmosphere was electric and the fans were in touching distance of the team. At Wembley the players cannot feed of that kind of atmosphere and they have to get used to playing at distance from the fans. The other problem is that the bulk of fans who will fill Wembley Stadium are not regular football fans - so they won't know the songs or the club fan culture. Old Trafford does not have these limitations, the 75,000 fans that turn up are from the core and not people buying tickets to see a football match. In reality, while Spurs home form was superb, the away form was relatively poor and in September EVERY match in reality for Spurs is an away game. They better learn fast how to make Wembley a "home" or get much better at knowing how to play away and win!

    This was the day when Spurs finally are guaranteed to finish above Arsenal in the table and such is the beleaguered expectations of Tottenham fans, for success-starved fans of Spurs this was a big deal. For Spurs new manager it did not matter one iota that Spurs will finish above Arsenal - he is talking title and winning. In the joy of today's win we Spurs fans may forget that Arsenal are in another cup final, their third FA Cup Final appearance in four years. If they miss out on a Top 4 place, they have still been to the Champions League dance every year for the past two decades. Spurs managed two top 4 finishes in that time. It is a wonder that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is being hammered by Arsenal fans in a very harsh manner, whereas in the time Wenger managed Arsenal, there have been 11 Tottenham managers who have not come close to achieving anything close to Wenger's achievements. The real test for Tottenham is not in beating Arsenal but winning the league and being a powerhouse in Europe. Until Tottenham get into the business of winning, today's win over Arsenal is not much to write home about. other than it satisfies the need to celebrate the most superficial of achievements and that attitude is exactly what Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino wants to change in the mindset of his own team and club.

    #6 Spurs have always attracted and produced great players but their only "Golden Age" was Bill Nicholson's double winning team of 1961. History would have been different had not been for two Tottenham goals disallowed by corrupt officials in the 1962 European Cup Semi-Final against Benfica.

    Benfica went on to win the European Cup with a 5-3 win over Real Madrid. The following year Spurs won the lesser European Cup Winners Cup with a 5-1 demolition of Athletic Madrid and became the first English club to win a European competition..

    After that Benfica were hit with the curse of Bela http://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/european/europa-league-final-seville-0-benfica-0-what-is-the-curse-of-bela-guttman-and-where-does-it-rank-9373886.html and Spurs themselves never got to build on the team of their golden age they terms "Glory, Glory Tottenham Hotspur".

    Otherwise the success Spurs talk of is as a "Cup Team". Arsenal have reached 3 FA Cup Finals in the last four years, now that is a real "cup team" and if Arsene Wenger wins, it will be his 7th FA Cup triumph and today Wenger is considered to be a failure! Spurs have lost their last 7 semi-finals in the FA Cup, so even the moniker of being a "Cup Team" is a currently a stretch.

    #4 Mourinho is shrewd and calculating in a good way, he recognizes the value of the Europa League as a passport to the Champions League and the need for a team to have silverware.

    Manchester United and Real Madrid have always assumed that they are destined for glory, whereas Tottenham and Valencia are nearly teams who once in a blue moon have a momentary success, yet they view themselves as big clubs, without the psychology of a big club.

    Look at what Pochettino did in surrendering the Europa League to a loss to a small club like Gent. His view was the top 4 was the surest way into the Champions league.

    Yet the Europa league was a winnable competition. It is a pity that Mourinho never came to manage Tottenham, Pochettino is remarkable but he has yet to reach the heights that Mourinho has. It would have been easier job for Mourinho and his attitude about winning silverware is what Spurs need.

    #2 Not surprising, Chelsea players have shown a ruthless mindset that can eek out results where other teams would lose heart. The problem today at Everton is that they celebrated as if victory over Everton was the last hurdle. It is not, the gap is still 4pts and Spurs have a superior goal difference. Chelsea must win at Middlesbro and at least draw with West Brom in order to secure the title for sure. I can't see Chelsea failing against Watford or Sunderland. If Spurs get past West Ham, they may encounter a generous Mourinho who has a deep wound what those Chelsea players did to him and even if he does not, this is Spurs last game at White Hart Lane.

    Yet even if Chelsea slip up the four points at home to Middlesbro and away to West Brom, Spurs have to go to Leicester on a Thursday night, and dropped points at Leicester would end Spurs outside hopes of a title. It would be the reverse of Spurs losing at Chelsea to give Leicester the Premier League title.

    Spurs would then hope that Sunderland hold Chelsea and their former striker Jermain Defoe score to steal a win for the relegated outfit. Now all of that is magical thinking. What is not is premature celebrations by Chelsea at Everton when the title has not yet been secured. This is what Liverpool did when they beat Manchester City, they celebrated with skipper Steven Gerard slipped against Chelsea and Liverpool imploded, and ever since the joke with Gerard has followed him https://metrouk2.files.wordpress.com/2014/04/ad133395728image001.png

    Can Chelsea implode? Probably not, after all they are not the Atlanta Falcons or the Cleveland Indians or even the Golden State Warriors - but strange and bizzare things have happened in Sports in 2016-17 and a Chelsea collapse would be sweet for Mourinho and for Tottenham.

    #1 The average years between titles since the Football League began is about one title every 60 years for Tottenham. Spurs have never won the Premier League since its inception in 1992. In that time Manchester United have won the Premier League 13 times under Sir Alex Ferguson.

    If Spurs keep to their average, it will take them 780 years to match what Sir Alex Ferguson achieved for United. Spurs have had good managers and did have good players but have failed often at the board level. focused on financial dealings rather than building a culture of success.

    Ferguson did that and Chelsea are indebted to their Chairman who fired managers at will with only the top prize being acceptable. Spurs fired managers because either they failed or created tensions with the Chairman. Ironically Wenger who is now so berated has an incredible managerial record.

    If Spurs had a Wenger he would be treated as a cult figure - as it is Arsenal fans see him as a dinosaur - as if changing managers guarantees them greater success. Today's game is key in this regard, Spurs have a board now that support their manager, Arsenal have fans who are now the one's whose anger seeks magical thinking.

    The Arsenal board will give Wenger a new contract unless he resigns due to severe vilification by fans. The best poster Spurs held out was "WENGER IN" and posters that cancelled St.Totteringham Day with the bye-line "WENGER PLEASE STAY". Yet he who laughs last laughs longest !

    #3 Hi @CityVP 🐝 Manjit, I couldn't agree with you more and I'm glad you spoke of the metric. Like you, I never had to worry about my weight, I also had a high metabolism. I remember friends making fun of me for all the food I would eat and never gain a pound. I took it for granted.

    I was just telling a friend the other day that I thought possibly all the bad foods I overloaded on are now haunting me too! Maybe there is something to that? I used to enjoy simple pleasures like biking but that's become hard on me because I broke my tailbone and I hurt my back when I broke my shoulder and hand. So, we do need to be careful when we choose to do something physical. Our bodies certainly can't handle what they were able to even 10 years ago.

    I like the term you used, softcore when it comes to working out... me too! I'd prefer a nice hike but that isn't always possible. I hate gyms. I have been using my elliptical, I feel it but I don't see any results. I think I've been on it 10 times in the past 3 weeks. I can't do it daily yet because I hurt a lot the day after. Ah, aging... so much fun. Thanks for your perspective!!

    #2 Hi @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher one of the things I have learned is to be careful of the metric. Sometimes when we look at pounds we may be looking at water weight. Some people are motivated by the technical aspect of exercise, others by the metric and others as a lifestyle choice.

    I am trying to gain a greater appreciation of the technical aspect but I am softcore when it comes to physical activity, the metric is a bonus, it simply tells me the outcome of the process I undertake and the most difficult challenge for me is to turn health into a lifestyle, because that is something I have never done - and did not need to do in my early years because of a high metabolism.

    I don't have that metabolism factor anymore and overloading my body in my younger days may come back as wear and tear later in life. The tribal factor has been demonstrated in this buzz - for how can a team playing on another continent effect what I do emotionally and in terms of motivational choices?

    So our tribal connect is huge in the area of physical intelligence, sharing our stories does have an effect, not only to motivate us but because we are tribal.

    Chelsea's unexpected slip up still means they have a 7pt advantage but it opens the flickering glimmer that a couple more times like this and what seemed like an unassailable lead look far more precarious.

    This weekend Burnley was a potential banana-skin game for Spurs since Burnley are very strong at their home ground of Turf Moor. In the end Burnley succumbed to a weakness they have which is not picking up players in their six yard box.

    The other Spurs goal was an incisive three man move featuring Erikson, Alli and Son. Spurs can be incisive but they still are not clinical enough, and Deli Alli was guilty of three big misses during the game, which could have proven to be costly.

    As it was Spurs had to wait for the 10 extra minutes the referee gave to Chelsea as "injury time" before they could celebrate even more, now the gap in the title race is 7pts.

    More importantly it set up the FA Cup Semi-Final showdown with Chelsea where Spurs can try to stop them from doing the "Double" this year. It was ironically Chelsea who ended Spurs title ambitions last year in what was a acrimonious match, which led to suspensions for some Spurs players.

    This year Tottenham seemed to have learned from that loss of composure and Spurs now have five more points than Leicester City did last year at this time, when eventually Leicester won the title.

    #1 It is the fans that make any sports team special and if the stadium change respects their energy it is progress, but in the case of Arsenal, they built a stadium that does not transmit the energy of fans. Tottenham have learned that lesson in the design of their state-of-the-art new stadium.

    Ultimately the big loss is that like American sports franchises, the game is less about its working class roots and more about the marketing machine and owners. It is the gentrification of the sports team which mirrors the loss of vitality and heart which cities like San Fransisco are experiencing when digital elites began to buy it up. So long as there are fans that are actually supporters and players that have values more than a multi-million dollar contract, the game can continue to produce new moments of magic and a new history.

    Sport today is the providence of the rich and yet the poor are remarkably loyal, still finding ways of paying for season tickets that represent a lot of their personal earnings. On the whole Tottenham fans will be happy with the new stadium, for years Tottenham could not compete against teams with bigger grounds, the question is whether that changes the lack of success Tottenham fans have had to put up with in recent years with a bigger stadium. We will soon see. The owners of Tottenham are an investment company and initially understood investment more than they understood football. That shows signs of changing but proof is in the nature of the investment decision - where sports is sweet is when the organization is great leadership off and on the field.

    Tottenham may have beaten Stoke City 4-0 today but Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino's challenge is no longer to win a trophy but to shape a Tottenham team that can learn to play on bigger pitches like Wembley Stadium where is record so far is atrocious.

    When tiny teams like Gent in Belgium can knock Spurs out of the Europa league, there is much bigger work to do, other than believing that a 10 point gap from leaders Chelsea is something that can be overcome, that is a pipe-dream unless there are key injuries to the Chelsea team to stop their blitzkrieg march to winning the 2017 Premier League Title.

    This becomes even more important because that is where Tottenham are playing every single HOME game next season as the new stadium is being built. Today a first half destruction of Stoke City was impressive, but it does not answer questions of how this Tottenham team can adapt at places like Wembley or when they visit a rival Top 6 Premier league club and play on pitches that are bigger than the small pitch size of White Hart Lane.

    The FA Cup Quarter-Final draw keeps some of the magic of the Cup alive, but even more so if non-league Sutton United beat Arsenal, because that guarantees a non-league team playing at Wembley in the Semi-Finals with Lincoln City having already beaten the Premier League title holders Leicester. If Arsenal prevail and that should be the case the semi-final draw will be full of the usual suspects from the Top 5 of the Premier League. Spurs beat Fulham 2-0 to gain a draw against Millwall, but that is not a tie to look forward to. Millwall are notorious for fan trouble and the police will be out in full force for that tie. Meantime the big tie is Jose Mourinho getting a second chance for payback against the team that fired him twice as Manchester United are drawn against Chelsea. All Spurs fans would really love right now is for Sutton United to embarrass Arsenal tomorrow. It is not as if going to Wembley will be special for Spurs, considering every home game Spurs play next year will be at Wembley Stadium, as the new Spurs stadium is being constructed. Spurs also play this Thursday in Europa League against Gent again at Wembley due to construction restrictions imposed under Europa League rules. So here is hoping for a Sutton United miracle tomorrow.
