Spurs (Home) Sunday December 23rd

Recommended Posts

Well... I made a mistake, thought it was an opportunity for Davies, buts he’s just nowhere near this level is he. Just can’t comoete with these guys. Movement isn’t there, effort is only there when the balls two inches from his feet.

Change it at half time please.

Guys it's obvious we need a proper ball-winning midfielder in matches like this. Gana and McCarthy the only two who could do the job in our current squad, and both are unavailable. 

Spurs seem to be doing very well without one

Sadly I agree. Poor lad got no confidence. Hell, I wouldn't if I had to go through Koemans and Allerdyces odd methods.

This is the type of game a fully fit McCarthy is ideal for 

Pickford with another brainfart and Coleman just doesn't have that yard of pace to get back anymore

I don't want to bash Davies much as he hasn't played much football but he's out of his depth here his movement and decision making is piss poor

If we're going to try and take on the best teams we need to drill our defence better. I'm not sure individually any of them are top drawer either. 

The problem we have is that we are playing into their hands. We are helping them create the gaps they need, it almost been like we were 2 down with 10 mins to go. Spurs are playing very well but you could VVD, Messi and Kroos into this way of playing and the result wouldnt be much different.

Davies was there. Just because he comes off the wall doesn't mean that he should just roam freely into box. 

Davies is there as part of the wall, watching the ball. The two Spurs players are there just to spin. Its one of those things that is just good fortune with clever attacking play to be in the right place at the right time. Far bigger problems with the first two goals and their several chances IMO.

Palfy the goal is never a foul he rests his hand on Sanchez who throws himself forward like he's been shot. Last one is a shoulder barge last time I checked that hadn't been outlawed yet.

I am tempted to say that our odd mistakes, plus a debatable call on DCL goal, explains the score.  Sort of bad luck, atypical mistakes.

But maybe they’re not atypical.  We screw up because we don’t have many consistently good players.  We’re just not good enough.

There's certainly some truth in that. Elston. And building up a team takes time and effort which we havn't really been doing. A lot of pressure on Silvas shoulders indeed.

Iv already mentioned Gomes' part in the 2nd but Davies effort is shocking too. 

gomes isn'tt having a great match either, but davies has been awful.  coleman davies pickford the worst players out there today.  honestly i would debate throwing schneiderlin on for davies at this point.

Pickford has had a howler.

Should have been booked at the very least at the end there. Gotta worry about this team now. The midfield are like ghosts and give the opposition so much time on the ball, that they just cut us apart with their through balls. Was the same in the last few games. Defense is utterly shambolic, probably not helped by Pickford charging around like an enraged headless chicken. There’s no composure at all. Going forward we’ve been quite good, although as in all the games recently some of the passing is atrocious, don’t know how you can call yourself a professional footballer if you can’t pass the bleeding ball!

I don’t know for what possible reason our goal was disallowed, dodgy ref me thinks, but can’t exactly say the score line is not a fair reflection of the game. At this rate big Sam will be back again by the summer. Going into a tailspin. We need a win and some confidence back.

I hereby optimistically predict we will win 4-3.

I mentioned it in the City game that I think we should have Gomes alongside a more defensive minded player. If Gomes and Davies were on Fifa they would have the same graph/map thing but one obviously much bigger than the other!

I was just thinking when Sigurdsson kept that ball in the corner and got a cross in he looks like he's starting to find top form. That is a fucking brilliant goal, we're looking good going forward and he is the main reason why.

They're just too good.

They are good. And they have builded that team up for years. But 1-4 home is unheard of. Did someone here say 2-5? That might just happen.

Another thing about this set up is that we are pressing so high from their goal kicks. Davies is pressing the deep midfielder so its no surprise to see problems through the middle as there is too much space.

I get why but its very risky against such a dynamic Spurs side.

then how should we have setup?  you just slate people and players and managers but never offer an alternative.

I think an alternative is somewhat hard with the current squad. We spend a lot of money, but I don't think they were spend that well over that last 2 seasons.

The gulf between us and the top sides I'm beginning to fear is so big I'll never see it bridged in my life time, so I just need to get use to it.

I reckon another £400-500m to reach the top 4

Years and years of under investment means we have to buy a slightly better set of players, improve, then buy the next tier etc...
