Last season Spurs were in touching distance when coming up against Eden Hazard at the Bridge who decided to put in his only performance of the season, which he repeated with Belgium in the tournament just gone.
Spurs will regain their composure under their brilliant manager and finish above Guardiola, a bet you can have without any doubt because what they will be calling things up north is “rebuilding” something you have no time to do over here anymore and the pressure (although the Dole Queue is pressure) is on those two man in Manchester, one who calls himself “Special” something that has been replaced down here in the Riley Pub in Chelsea by several words unprintable.
His home till sands in the upper Echelons of property along from Roman, empty, much like his last visit as manager, reminding me of Old Mother Hubbard.
The big question in London is “Will this be Wenger’s last season in charge?”
The answer lies with just how England get on under Allardyce, which is another story, if he finally gets his Dream job, and if he does as the Beach Boys sang “God Only Knows” what will happen to a nation that is like coming home from one of those Holidays you see on TV in Spain where there is no pool no roof and most certainly, no return.
