Last season’s game against Spurs was a controversial one as Nani’s cheeky goal (as well as some unsurprising idiocy from Gomes) saw United run away 2-0 winners.

United would go on to remain undefeated at home for the rest of the seson but tomorrow we face a big test as United, with an extremely young back line, takes on a Spurs side brimming with confidence following their 5-0 drubbing of Hearts on Thursday.

So ahead of the game we had a quick chat with Harry Hotspur about the state of affairs down at The Lane:

1. Old Trafford was a fortress last season, can I get a score prediction?


2. Who should we be keeping an eye on?  And who will you be wary of in our team?  

Kranjcar’s gonna getcha but we will be very wary of anyone in a red shirt.

3. Do you still have faith in Gomes or should he get the push in favour of Friedel?

Gomes is occasionally world class, occasionally an octopus that’s had most of it’s legs amputated. Friedel isn’t available for the whole of September, he’s going on a SAGA holiday.

4. Been pretty quiet on the transfer front for you but with Adebayor and Diarra coming in will these players help you get back into the Champions League?

We lack not just players mate but all too often a winning mentality. If we find someone selling that somewhere we’ll rock the kasbah.

5. Speaking of transfers will Modric stay or go? Don’t think the riots did much to change his mind!

That’s unkind. The flickering light of a burned out cop car can be quite romantic of a night. I think Modric needs to grow a pair and our manager wants to shut his cake hole.

6. If the Diarra deal doesn’t come off we have Gibson available at a cut price of £5m, we know Harry is adverse to all that tactical nonsense so all he’ll have to do is tell him to shoot!

The boy Gibson, eh? I’m afraid we’re only interested in Arsenal off-casts but do appreciate the kind offer!

Harry was kind enough to want to hear my incoherent babbling too and that can be read here

    😮 been a complete gent whenever I’ve met him!

    1. 2-1
    2. Bale of course, Niko if Modric is not fit, Huddlestone’s passing can turn a game.
    3. Gomes is great+poor but defence needs stability. I’d give Friedel a run next time Gomes chucks one in and see how it goes.
    4. Adebayor and Diarra would fill two big gaps for us – target man good in the air, adding some defensive steel and experience in the middle. But that case was there last few windows so they may not happen.
    5. Up to CFC really. 20m+ bids are not seriously going to get him but an offer of 35m or 40m and I expect it would be done, unfortunate but money talks.
    6. Rather buy two strikers myself, three would be better. Got any of those we can have?

    Mate if you think HH knows anything about the game you must be a plonker also!…..legend in his own lunchtime!……complete tosser……does nothing for your blogs credentials to even want his opinion.

    Agreed..Harry hotspur loves himself…spooky at Dear mr levy is the man to talk to!

  5. Cyril says:

    I’ve never had a problem with Harry H.: I find the old Dr Strangelove photo quite endearing. All this vitriol surprises and disappoints me. As stated above, Spooky at Dear mr Levy is always worth a read as well.

    Is Howard Webb playing? Or Battenburg? About time we had some dodgy refereeing in our favour at OT!

    Nothing wrong with Harry Hotspur’s blog,the naysayers above are an easily offended bunch of tossers who needed slapping down

  7. Stupid Manure fans says:

    Yeah damn that idiot Gomes for not knowing what to do after Nani handled the ball and Crappenburg gave no signal whatsoever

  8. Mark says:

    Maureen, you are nothing but a slut, now fuck off and die quietly somewheres, Maureens husband Stoney, you obviously suck a bit of cock, maybe Maureens who knows.

  9. Mark says:

    Spurs guvnor, is that riddles or just a higher intelligence than yours.

    Sometimes i have to read things twice but Wow you’re fucked.
    Anyway, what’s all this Spurs guvnor thing about, who in the fuck do you think you are?

  10. RealMadYid says:

    I personally prefer spooky to HH, but I enjoy both blogs due to the fact they are entertaining and make me laugh. The comments left are half of the reason for this. I’m afraid this site is just way too serious and focused on negativity and insults.
