  1. Its never dull being a Spurs and just when we climb to the peak Ferguson stands on our fingers and we fall back down. I refer to his tapping our players through the Sun he always does this before we play them in a crucial game . Firstly is was Carrick then Berbatov this year Modric Bale the very person he told harry not to play because of is curse. This man is seen has a good Manager but in my eyes he got lucky with UTD best bunch of kids he also bullied Refs with UTD power and snatched every prospect around .That was is old UTD rein the last chapter in is managership is even more sordid two of is Captains where embroiled in Drug scandals Stam and Ferdinand one left the other was banned . For the first time he is not at one of the riches club in the World and he is being bullied by Real Madrid and very soon Man City. Spurs have built a very good side while Ferguson has gone for experience and is now tired looking and old like Ferguson the older he gets the more he wants instant success and he thinks Spurs are is feeder club and between his ego and American bank money Utd are a dangerous model to copy and are a better looking tragedy waiting to unfold . This moddel needs bringing back to reality before other clubs follow we already have Liverpool and others copying like Birmingham who wanted Pavluchenko in January but owed a bank two Million. These regulations need to be brought into force no club can use money for transfers while there club is in massive dept no club should tap players up in the papers unless they are on a short contract and paper should only print a clubs offer if that club agrees its sanctioned the offer . Spurs are well run on and of the field and should not be damaged by clubs in financial ruin like Pompy UTd and others .
