    102 minutes of garbage

    Iíve just watched the Bournemouth v Spurs game for over 100 minutes and it was diabolical viewing for the neutral fan like me. A few weeks ago I put a post on here stating I wasnít impressed with the standard of football we had to tolerate. I was told to give it a chance. I have, and my opinion remains the same. Both these clubs are under achieving for various reasons and it was not hard to see why. The conditions were perfect, the pitch immaculate ,and there was no excuses for a decent game to evolve. Mourinho was brought in to lift the club once Poch had gone. He has failed in that respect and what the Tottenham chairman sees in him I Ďll never know. Maybe he just wanted someone ďwho was a name ďto steer the ship.If that was the case ,his ship is either rudderless or sinking.
    As for Eddie , he has problems of a different sort. It looks as though their destiny coul go to the final game. They look decent enough on the team sheet ,but thatís all. Iím just glad iím Not a fan of either club after watching a game like that.

    .

    can see similar complaints on most of the PL team forums - mal...........has been that way all season, standards are unnaturally low - and with no crowd to gee them on or give it some atmosphere - the games dead on its feet.

    I saw Spurs v Everton a few days ago, I was in a really determined mood and forced myself to sit there suffering until the very end. It was such garbage, such unrelenting tedium that it's done the trick. I haven't watched a game since, and I've no intention of watching any more, that's me finished for the season, which pleases Mrs S no end.

    I will stick to my guns on this subject. The PL is very much over-hyped and the standard of football is generally not very good.
    They have the most perfect conditions in which to play the game and yet they serve up los of tiki taka football with teams regularly taking at least 12 passes to get the ball out of their own half.

    Yes, I am getting on, however, the game was so much more of a spectacle when it was played on less than perfect pitches with balls that picked up the water and got heavier as the game wore on, players wearing proper boots, not feigning injury or going down at the slightest touch and rolling around for ever! Add to that a genuine desire to play the game and a willingness to accept the onfield decisions without the aid, or should it be hinderance, of VAR! There is so much wrong with the modern game, however, it is regressing into the game which the modern fan wants and it will not be too long before, at the top level, it will be a non-contact sport.

    I don't post much on this board for various reasons............but I digress. I agree with the above post 100%. What happened to the days when Coates made a run in the mud, defenders looking to bring him down from behind, he'd cut in from the wing and unleash a rocket. Sure it's nice to see these pretty players farting around getting nowhere fast, I bet they'd wearing 'depends' if Brian O'Niel, Dave Merrington, Colin Blant et al were in the immediate area!

    Even Harry Kane looked like he had only played for his Sunday League pub team as third reserve, once a month when one of the cars had broken and three of the regular starters failed to show.

    I suffered it for 15 minutes Malwayne, so you have more patience than me.

    Like a few above have said the standard is just not there, "best league in the world" ? Nowhere near, I don't expect gripping games every other match, as we only get a fraction of that.

    The crowd is definately a big missed though.

    Not for me with the sound turned off so I don't have to listen to the inane ramblings of whoever is doing the inane rambling!
