Leicester 2 Spurs 1 

Mauricio Pochettino refused to blame VAR for Spurs 2-1 defeat at Leicester on Saturday but admitted the decision to rule out Serge Aurier’s goal “changed the emotions” of both sides. Aurier thought he had given Spurs a 2-0 lead after 67 minutes but the VAR ruled Heung-min Son a fraction offside in the build-up – a decision that looked harsh on the visitors.

Leicester equalised two minutes later through full-back Ricardo and James Maddison’s 83rd-minute strike completed the turnaround to leave Spurs still without an away win since January.

“You get the benefit or not get the benefit, it’s fair or not fair, offside or not offside – I’m not going to talk about VAR,” Pochettino said afterwards. “I’m only going to say that we all accept the system in the game and now I am not going to complain. I trust in the referees and if the referees say it was or wasn’t I’m not going to complain.

“I think we need to analyse the game in a different way and not include the VAR. We need to accept that it’s completely fair, the rules. I’m not disappointed with that, I’m disappointed because we conceded two goals and the emotion of the game changed. Giving that decision to Leicester made that thing happen in the last 10 minutes.

“I am not blaming VAR, please take me in the way [I mean],” he added. “At 2-0, the game is going to be different, when VAR disallowed the goal: 2-0 is not the same as 1-0 with 80 minutes. That is normal that it changes the emotions. For us it was a massive disappointment and for them it was a massive belief for all the people and fans to keep pushing and they found the way to score a goal. In the end, we all thought it was going to be a draw and the goal appeared from long distance and it killed our feeling.”

Spurs have now picked up eight points from their opening six league games and thrown away leads in three consecutive away matches, following from the 2-2 draws at Arsenal and Olympiacos.

The manager claimed “everything is against” his side but praised their display for 83 minutes, which came after they returned from Athens at 4am on Thursday morning.

“The performance I think was good,” he said. “After Wednesday, a long flight, not too much time to recover I think the performances was fantastic. I think we were the best team on the pitch for 83 minutes, of course but now that changed completely in the last seven or 10 minutes the feeling.

“The feeling before was that we dominated and with a different result we are talking in a different way, but we need to be fair in the way we are going to assess this. The team behaved very well with a great attitude and played in some moments very good football. I am happy with the performance, disappointed with the result. In this type of period where everything is against us, that is the moment to be tough and work hard and be positive.”

I am really fed up of being treated like shit. Even when you are in the right and complain about something the shits manage to turn it around so you feel like its you that are to blame. The noise from the new build has been terrible all week.. Over the past five days and the sunny last few days of summer it has been impossible to sit in the garden or have the windows open. I blew a gasket around 5pm today and went to confront the builders. Unfortunately I lost it and swore. The builder had his son with him in a unsafe are but it was me who was unbelievable because I did say the F word. I was stressed beyond stress. But it was me who was made to feel in the wrong.

The Story In Your Eyes

The Moody Blues

I’ve been thinking about our fortune
And I’ve decided that we’re really not to blame
For the love that’s deep inside us now
Is still the same

And the sounds we make together
Is the music to the story in your eyes
It’s been shining down upon me now
I realize

Listen to the tide slowly turning
Wash all our heartaches away
We’re part of the fire that is burning
And from the ashes we can build another day

But I’m frightened for your children
That the life that we are living is in vain
And the sunshine we’ve been waiting for
Will turn to rain

Listen to the tide slowly turning
Wash all our heartaches away
We’re part of the fire that is burning
And from the ashes we can build another day

But I’m frightened for your children
That the life that we are living is in vain
And the sunshine we’ve been waiting for
Will turn to rain

When the final line is over and
It’s certain that the curtain’s gonna fall
I can hide inside your sweet sweet love
For ever more

One Step Into The Light

The Moody Blues

One step into the light
One step away from night
It’s the hardest step you’re gonna take
The ship to take you there
Is waiting at the head
Of the stairs that lead up through your opening mind

Above the dark despair
Shines a light that we can share
Close your eyes and look up in between your brows
Then slowly breathing in
Feel the LIFE FORCE streaming in
Hold it there, then send it back to him

All the old things are returning
Cosmic circles ever turning
All the truth we’ve been yearning for
Life is our saviour, saviour, saviour, save your soul

The river of living breath
Is flowing through the sun
He was there before the earth began
The world will drag on you
Use his love to pull you through
Find the mission of your life and start to be

All the old things are returning
Cosmic circles ever turning
All the truth we’ve been yearning for
Life is our saviour, saviour, saviour, save your soul

There’s one thing I can do
Play my Mellotron for you
Try to blow away your city blues
Your dreams are not unfound
Get your feet back on the ground
The truth will set us free, we cannot lose
We cannot love, we just have to choose

You’re So Vain

Carly Simon

You walked into the party like you were walking onto a yacht
Your hat strategically dipped below one eye
Your scarf it was apricot

You had one eye in the mirror as you watched yourself gavotte
And all the girls dreamed that they’d be your partner
They’d be your partner, and…

You’re so vain, you probably think this song is about you
You’re so vain, I’ll bet you think this song is about you
Don’t you? Don’t you?

You had me several years ago when I was still quite naive
When you said that we made such a pretty pair
And that you would never leave

But you gave away the things you loved and one of them was me
I had some dreams, they were clouds in my coffee
Clouds in my coffee, and…

You’re so vain, you probably think this song is about you
You’re so vain, I’ll bet you think this song is about you
Don’t you? Don’t you? Don’t you?

I had some dreams they were clouds in my coffee
Clouds in my coffee, and…

You’re so vain, you probably think this song is about you
You’re so vain, I’ll bet you think this song is about you
Don’t you? Don’t you?

Well I hear you went up to Saratoga and your horse naturally won
Then you flew your Lear jet up to Nova Scotia
To see the total eclipse of the sun

Well you’re where you should be all the time
And when you’re not you’re with some underworld spy
Or the wife of a close friend, wife of a close friend, and…

You’re so vain, you probably think this song is about you
You’re so vain, I’ll bet you think this song is about you
Don’t you? Don’t you? Don’t you?

You’re so vain, you probably think this song is about you
You’re so vain, you probably think this song is about you
You’re so vain, bet you think this song is about you

Today I went as a volunteer to Austin Heath and took the Compton  Verney Tea experience along with Eion and Sue. We did tea tasting and blind tea tasting and some painting using sticks and various shades of tea. Although I enjoyed it and the people there were very nice to me it was really not my cup of tea. Excuse the pun.

Its a place beyond my income scale if I were to live a life all over again I would never be able to afford to live in such opulence and unadulterated padding and luxury.

It was just a against every principle of my RED based socialist bone in my body. I guess if you have the money and the feeling of privilege you can except what they offer. I am not sure I could.

Austin Heath is a place where you can enjoy the best of both worlds – luxury, contemporary, living at the heart of ‘Shakespeare’s England’. Just a short distance from Warwick’s famous castle, Austin Heath offers a haven of tranquillity with 118 exclusive homes plus 49 sumptuous village centre apartments, panorama and penthouses, not to mention some exceptional facilities. So, whether you’re enjoying a family meal in the brasserie restaurant, or a soak in the Jacuzzi; getting out and about on a woodland walk, or just putting your feet up in the garden – we bring friends and families together in an area that Lonely Planet called ‘one of the best places to visit in Europe’.

Olympiakos 2 Spurs 2

Just as in the 2-2 draw at Arsenal, Pochettino’s side were cruising towards half-time with a commanding lead and were as close as possible to silencing Olympiakos’ infamous ‘Gate 7’ ultras. But just as they were beginning to resemble an experienced Champions League side – the type of team that wins these treacherous away games without really deserving to – they conceded seconds before the interval, squandering the momentum entirely. Winger Podence is a hidden gem but he was given far too much space to burst from deep and fire across Hugo Lloris.

It was the time when Spurs should have been shutting up shop but Ben Davies and Jan Vertonghen were both caught upfield. With the wind in their sails and the raucous crowd behind them, it was no great surprise when Olympiakos equalised ten minutes after the interval, Valbuena sending Lloris the wrong way after he was fouled by Vertonghen.

Olympiacos FC v Tottenham Hotspur: Group B - UEFA Champions Leagueprocess

Like at Arsenal, Spurs did well to stem the tide and they looked the more likely winners late on – a Lloris flap aside – when substitutes Heung-min Son and Erik Lamela menaced the Greeks’ weary defence. But Spurs should never have been in a position of needing to rally and it all came down to the sloppy first goal. Manager Mauricio Pochettino will understandably be frustrated and will be asking himself why the same thing has happened twice in two weeks.

Vertonghen, who has entered the final year of his contract, was caught too high for Podence’s crucial strike as the Portuguese ghosted between him and Davies before firing past Lloris. Valbuena made a spectacular meal of the penalty incident but it was a clumsy and needless foul, and Vertonghen should have known better.

He is now 32 – no spring chicken – and he started the season being frozen out by Pochettino, before injuries forced a rethink. On this evidence, Vertonghen is still getting up to speed, so do not be surprised to see a partnership of Sanchez and Toby Alderweireld against Leicester on Saturday.

Lucas Moura scored another brilliant Champions League goal to enhance his reputation as a European specialist and a man for the big nights under lights.

The Brazilian’s exploits in Amsterdam need no retelling, of course, but he impressed for Spurs throughout last season’s dreamlike run to the final and also scored crucial goal against PSV Eindhoven and Barcelona.

janvertonghen180919atanguyndombele180919a

With the Karaiskakis Stadium still recovering from Kane’s penalty, Lucas collected Davies’ well-weighted pass and curled a beautiful strike past Jose Sa. Whether it is a question of system or style or simply feel, Lucas looks more at home for Spurs in Europe than he does in the Premier League and it would make sense for Pochettino to save him for these nights in future.

Ndombele seemed to take the longest to acclimatise to the occasion and atmosphere, repeatedly giving the ball away cheaply in the first 20 minutes. He never really looked comfortable in possession and was replaced by Moussa Sissoko midway through the second half. Ndombele is clearly a talent but he will take time to get up to speed in this Spurs side.

Steelers 26 Seahawks 28

The Seattle Seahawks defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field by a score of 28-26, moving them to 2-0 on the season. Here are five takeaways from another narrow victory over an AFC North team.

cj8ahnmoumuom7ouazohn1mgfcgrl4tz3ljacifj

The Seahawks offensive line was victimized for most of the first half, giving up four sacks in that time frame. The Steelers defensive line has a few solid playmakers, but Seattle’s unit must perform better than this against future opponents. Germain Ifedi had a few false start penalties to hamper the Seahawks in key moments and Ethan Pocic had a hold that negated a big completion to Tyler Lockett. The unit improved in the second half, but they must find consistency. Dissly had a solid game with five receptions for 50 yards and two touchdowns. The second-year tight end should see more opportunities come his way in the near future as he displayed a strong connection with Wilson in this game. Seattle could certainly use more offensive production from its tight ends, and Dissly looks like he can assist with that.

An 82.9 completion percentage, 300 passing yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions for the Seahawks’ franchise quarterback. In addition to the aforementioned touchdowns to Dissly, Wilson threw a TD to rookie wide receiver DK Metcalf on a third and 3 that made the score 28-19 in Seattle’s favor. He also broke off several big QB runs with the game on the line. Another strong performance from Wilson.

After making a few key plays in Seattle’s Week 1 victory over Cincinnati, Carson had two costly fumbles Sunday that could have cost his team the game. The second fumble was particularly egregious as it set up a Steelers touchdown on the next play, letting Pittsburgh back into the game at 28-26. The Seahawks will still feed him the ball more often than Rashaad Penny (who had a touchdown run) but he now has three fumbles in two games. Not too encouraging. However…

Just like last week, Carson came through for the Seahawks when they needed him to. He ran for the game-winning first down on a fourth and 1 with under two minutes in regulation, and the play call to go for it worked in their favor. Pete Carroll and his coaching staff should be commended for this decision, as it helped the Seahawks clinch the win.
