Spurs fans rattled by Hammers

Browse on social media and online football forums today and you will see some pretty rattled Spurs fans.

The north London minnows consider themselves the superior London team but are clearly  nervous about tomorrow’s encounter.

They believe West Ham are getting ahead of themselves in thinking they are better than their team – a view seemingly shared by their manager who is prophesying a Hammers slump sometime soon.

They see delusions of grandeur around the east end but as the saying goes those in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones springs to mind.

They call tomorrow’s game ‘West Ham’s cup final’ insisting it means more to us than it does to them. The last time they won a cup final was 1991 over 30 years ago.

  1. When’s the last time you finished above Spurs and won anything?

    • We do news here mate – not history lessons! Bugger off back to your mown websites such as they are

    • Jamie, why are you even on this site?

    • To some extent I agree with your comment. I get irritated when the “spuds trophy cabinet is bare” jokes coz our is too. But as Hugh wrote, news is about here and now. You lot think you’re better than you are, every season “it’s our season” It’s never your season. At least we know that. You’re a mediocre club with $hit too many fair weather supporters…

  2. Here we go, looking for excuses because your having a slack period and we’re riding on the tip of the wave which makes a nice change for us, But, yes, we moan when we’re down fighting relegation most seasons, but we don’t start going down the road of “when’s the the last time you won a cup” we just say, oh well, next season will hopefully be better. That’s why Spurs fans have no class, just except it and stop bleating

  3. It wasn’t 1991 was 2008, just saying. If spurs defend we won’t win. If we come out and attack you and play attacking football and get after you I would be a lot more confident. No doubt Aurier and Sissoko if they play will give away stupid unnecessary free kicks which will punish us. Lost the faith with Mourinho. Interested to see what spurs turn up. Enjoyed reading the article.

  4. Time to show these big time Charlie’s whose the top dogs in London, let’s go for it Moyes, start Ant Benrahmi and Lingard and let’s tear their feeble defence and shaky keeper apart, if we sit back Kane and Son will pick us off.

  5. What a pathetic life this Spurs clown must have that he’s cruising West Ham pages looking for things to criticize. The funny bit is he’s probably goin to be going on about how the game tomorrow is our “cup final” and blah blah blah. Sad little man.

    • I was on a spurs page and the headline was spurs fans rattled. So wanted to read it didn’t slag you off just gave a fair opinion of the game tomorrow. If you want me to mug you off I will.

  6. I’m in my 60s and I’ve known many Spurs fans through my life, from school and through different jobs over the last 50 years. They have come from all walks of life. The one thread that has run through them all is that one of massively delusional arrogance. The consistency of this is astonishing. Now, I also intensely dislike Man U or Liverpool fans’ arrogance and sense of entitlement. They’re never nice traits. But at least they have achieved stuff over the last 50 years. Quite a lot of stuff. Spurs? Pah! Now, obviously there will be the odd exception. My nephew is a spud and is a lovely guy.

    Now, I’m not daring to think about top six. And Moyes is being very cautious about that. Quite rightly. And so, I have to say (and this is my favourite fan site) to read Hugh starting to talk in something like those terms makes me uncomfortable.

    We have 42 points and, 2002 aside, we shouldn’t get relegated. Let’s enjoy looking at the league table as it stands right now and take each game as it comes. And forget about Spurs. If we beat them, great. If not, we’ll move on, just like against any team. Let’s not get dragged into their delusional mindset.

    For fun, I dipped into a YouTube video a few months back of two Spurs supporters ranting about West Ham and how pathetic we all are and that the hate and jealousy was all on our side. And I thought, you’ve gone to an awful lot of effort and are showing an enormous amount of anger, hatred and arrogance in order to do this. Just look in a mirror.
