Last February we found ourselves 5-0 down at White Hart Lane. I had taken a manyoo mate and as we played out the last 20 minutes to a constant chorus of ‘Demba Ba Ramadan’, he turned to me and said ‘that’s why you’re the best fans in the world’.
Lady Elsie; “I’m simply amazed that Robbie and Phil completed this incredible ride, and on schedule, despite all the many challenges they came up against. That shows a very special level of dedication and courage”.
At the very top of the tree you have the Andy Cole/Peter Beardsley link-up that produced an incredible 55 Premier League goals in the 1993/94 season, Cole was outrageously good and hit 34, with Peter Beardsley weighing in with another 21.
Ashley missed a huge opportunity to take this team to the next level in the summer, a few signings could have made a huge difference. We punched above to finish 5th last season but it’s true that the potential was there to kick on and challenge for the top 4 this season.
So why didn’t Ashley get out his cheque book in the summer and sign De Jong, Debuchy or Douglas? Only he knows the answer. I thought it was a fairly clear situation, more tough games in a season means more injuries, more suspensions and more fatigue,
