The Spurs Thread


Recommended Posts

Jeez, what a game. Felt a bit

sorry for Martial after our shithouse-in-chief wound him up. That said, how the frig did Luke Shaw stay on the pitch ?

 

Amongst some good attacking performances, I thought Hojbjerg was excellent. Made some great interceptions, and I think it was him who slid Aurier in for his goal.

We have been fucked over by refs against Man Utd, I think we deserve some good fortune from them at long last, and let’s be honest we were way on top anyway, and I doubt the score-line would have been much different even if they still had 11 men on the pitch.

Rodon is quality and you have got him for a bargain as our owners are shite hawks.  Trevor Birch would have sadly known the price we would sell at.  Rodon is a better prospect than Davies was at the same age and I have no doubt he will go on to captain his country.  Always sad when a home grown talent leaves.  Pob lwc Joe :(

If he is even as half as good as our last Welsh centre-back, then yes we will have quite a bargain on our hands.

It’s been an extraordinary transfer window, and we have to give Levy credit where it’s due. Rodon for something like £11m with £4m add-ons, Reguilon for £23m, Hojbjerg for effectively £3m (taking into account Walker-Peters going the other way), Doherty for £15m, Bale with Madrid paying 60% of his wages, Vinicius on loan. We’ve basically replaced half the side for less than Chelsea paid for Kai Havertz. Add to that Lo Celso and Ndombele starting to show why we paid a lot for them last summer, and hopefully Sessegnon to come back from Germany with some decent experience and battle-hardened. The ‘painful’ rebuild has happened, mostly with players 25 and under. Brilliant. Now time for José to turn them into proper winners. Joe Hart on a free gets an honourable mention, but I think he’s there as much for his experience and character as he is for actually playing.

I forgot we could still sign players until yesterday so was quite shocked we got another one in. Has to be said we've signed players for every position that I wanted filling. And we've even got Bale in! What a time to be a spurs fan.

I felt in the first half that we looked easy to open up. Sanchez has a mistake or two in him most times I see him play, but the last second wonderstrike is a staple of a Spurs capitulation too.

Same as the Newcastle game, we should have been out of sight , positives are we still haven’t put out our best side and we look good and games are entertaining.

 

The season has a whiff of ‘what ifs?’ already tho, Liverpool look like Virgil is out all season and they look poor at the back with him...

We've been poor at the back since the whole restart, barring the Chelsea game this season - and I include VVD in that (I think he's had 2 or 3 errors directly leading to goals). It's a massive blow for the player and the club though. We need Allison back ASAP as Adrian is a poor backup, at least that will partly help.

 

And yes, it does sting all the more because Pickford committed assault and will face no consequences.

They have looked a lot more shaky this season even with VVD. Pickford’s challenge was disgraceful though - surely if the ref doesn’t punish it in-game he can retrospectively put him up for violent conduct or something. Richarlison’s was just as bad but he got a red so they can’t revisit it, but Pickford didn’t even get a booking.

That's what I am saying, yeah. He hadn't looked as solid for a little while. Still a massive player to lose, of course.

Think Spurs could have massively benefitted from not being in the Europa League this season. While you’re still one of the better teams in the competition, it would have been interesting to see you have a run in the league with no other distractions outside the domestic cups.

Our squad is far to big to not play in Europe as well, yesterday even with injuries to Dier and Lo Celso, there was still no room on the bench for Lamela, Dele or Gedson.

 

We simply don’t have a dominant centre back anymore and it’s becoming plain to see, just how important Jan was to us when he was at his peak a few seasons ago.

Fair enough. At least you have a manager with experience of winning the thing.

Lamela plays like someone playing FIFA with a broken joypad. Everything is under or over hit or a second too slow. Useless. 

Unless you want some expert shithousery done then yes, Lamela is pretty useless these days, especially when he starts.

Looking good so far. Next 4 games in the league will show us where we really are. Always feel we are best against teams who come to attack though. These grind em out results we usually struggle so to get 9 from 9 is pretty impressive...
