Triffic tactics - from Daniel, not Harry
I see what we're doing. I get it.
What's clearly happening is that in the build up to each of our last eight games, Daniel Levy is allowing the manager of the opposition to be linked heavily with the Spurs job, thereby causing them to stop and think, at least sub-consciously, do I want Champions League football or not?
It worked on Brendan Rodgers. There wasn't a booking, barely a tackle, hardly any shots and their goal was just an unhappy accident. And they then spent the next ten minutes defending so badly that we looked dangerous from set pieces.
Smart move, Danny boy, smart move. Not sure he's thought it through, though.
I mean it'll work this week against Sunderland. Might work against Norwich. Can even give it a go against Bolton and QPR.
But then we play Blackburn. Steve Keane for Tottenham? Not seen a headline quite as unbelievable since that World War II bomber was found on the moon. The Metro will probably go with it.
