Hope this helps pal.
Should probably have gone with 5 years imo

But not anymore. Spurs position has allowed them to emerge fully, emboldened and confident. No longer considered the lepers of the football world - no longer castigated for supporting one of the most unpleasant men ever to be involved in football - they now stride forward with purpose and confidence.

But has this bold charge come too soon? ‘Top in November’ will forever be a statement associated with premature ejaculation. Has one of the leading knights (perhaps the head knight) fired his wad pre March and could easily end up spent? - what of the other knights? AK14, switchers etc? Who else is joining grinchers in going over the top and running into the battlefield?
Grinchers was at one point this forum's Hiroo Onoda of pro-Mou Mouism tbf to him. Its his now being joined by certain more, shall we say, "opportunistic" types that is significant IMO

Typical Mou M.O. “I don’t want to talk” before droning on endlessly about the thing he doesn’t want to talk about.

Even simple things like pressing properly. You watch Mane yesterday and the way he was pressing Schmeichel and Leicester’s back line, forcing them to boot it out of play and give back possession. Then you watch Martial’s effort at a ‘press’; it’s laughable. I think our opposition defenders just ignore him. Small things done well help win games.
Why have you quoted that post then answered to a previous discussion?

Took a while to get through it, but agree it is an interesting read. Strange how the discussion slowly evolved into a Mou-Off, although also very funny in hindsight. Ethers comes out very well and sagey throughout.

A couple of personal highlights:

there's just one step forward and 3 steps back. Welcome to mediocrity.

And with context:
