    Tripps is a decent passer, but he is an average defender. I’d give KWP a run in the side at right back. Hugo needs replacing, but he’s teachers pet so Poch won’t do it.

    Most of our players look hesitant and uncertain in possession and don’t attack with any real pace, confidence or ideas.

    The movement overall is poor. It’s like they are schooled in a positional system and fear departing from that.

    Clearly the full backs are designated throw in takers, so we delay them until they have the ball in hand, by which time the opposition have had time to get into shape and pick up their men. We struggle to retain possession from our own throws!

      I wouldn’t necessarily disagree with you, it’s just that I genuinely think it’s simply a matter of time before we click.

  • UnkleTaff 06/10/2018 at 5:57 pm

    It’s bizarre to think that if City and Liverpool play out a draw tomorrow (a highly probably outcome) we will be just two points off the top of the table by the end of the week…

          To be sure.

    Anthony Taylor is as poor a referee as you will ever see, big team believer who lacks not only ability but courage and hair.

    You wonder sometimes what the officials are looking at, shoulda been a penalty.

    3-2 Man Utd.

      5-0 Newcastle, you can put Mourinho’s job on it

    • Chauvelin 06/10/2018 at 6:41 pm

      Cheatski all over again. I’m just hoping he hangs on for a couple more games to give us a nice 10 point lead.

    • Fatty B 06/10/2018 at 6:42 pm

  • UnkleTaff 06/10/2018 at 6:46 pm

    So far we’ve only played two games against teams in the top half of the table.

    We’ve lost both of ’em.

    • 89Spurs πŸ‘ 06/10/2018 at 6:49 pm

      But we didn’t know that Manure were crap, until we beat them at home. Now I can see why.

  • HD πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ 06/10/2018 at 6:54 pm

    Mourinho getting desperate, he’s about to bring on the pouting Sanchez.

  • UnkleTaff 06/10/2018 at 6:58 pm

    There’s the first one.

    Newcastle will now crumble and Utd will score a couple more.

    So it is written.

      In the six yard box, that is.

    I’m going to go out on limb here and suggest this Utd game might just get the nod over ours for first up on MotD tonight.

  • SpurAndy πŸ₯§πŸ’ 06/10/2018 at 7:21 pm

    Take me titfer off to those oh so brave Manurists. Who’d have thunk they had the ability, tenacity, sheer unbelievable technical ability to beat a side that currently have no wins but a massive 2 points this season. Bravo!

  • UnkleTaff 06/10/2018 at 7:39 pm

    To listen to Radio 5 at the moment you could be forgiven for thinking that no team has ever come back to win from being 2-0 down before.

    • SpurAndy πŸ₯§πŸ’ 06/10/2018 at 7:41 pm

      Yes but it was against Newcastle, one of the greatest teams ever assembled in the history of the universe.

      • 61 Spurs Nut 🌰 06/10/2018 at 7:57 pm

        A true David and Goliath moment if ever there was one.

      • 61 Spurs Nut 🌰 07/10/2018 at 8:24 am

        No sign of him in the trailer but he will be in Birmingam in two weeks.

        • Chauvelin 07/10/2018 at 10:29 am

          They’ve even taken a half page advert in the Radio Times for the event.

          • 61 Spurs Nut 🌰 07/10/2018 at 10:35 am

                  Shatner will be a big draw. He’s pretty old now.

                    His queues are always at least twice as long as any other. He’s also the most unpersonable guest I have ever met. I’ll be waltzing past his table again πŸ˜€

                    • Chauvelin 07/10/2018 at 11:09 am

                      From what I’ve read Shatner was expecting to be the one and only star in ST. He was pissed off with the popularity of Nimoy and sharing the story lines with Spock, Bones and Scotty et al. Dunno if it was all true but I could well imagine.

                    • 61 Spurs Nut 🌰 07/10/2018 at 11:16 am

                      It all kicked off when Nimoy got much more fan mail than him back in the 60s. He couldn’t compete with the green-blooded pointy-eared hobgoblin.

                    • Chauvelin 07/10/2018 at 11:20 am

                      Spock was a great character. Kirk was just John Wayne in a space ship.

                    • Chauvelin 07/10/2018 at 11:22 am

                      That’s a bit mean, but he was the epitome of the all American hero…

                    • Chauvelin 07/10/2018 at 11:24 am

                      Seeing some of the early episodes again, Spock wasn’t quite the unemotional stoic as his character later developed. He was quite loud and shouty.

                    • 61 Spurs Nut 🌰 07/10/2018 at 11:32 am

                      By the time he got his blue shirt on I think he was pwopa “Vulcanian”.

                    • Chauvelin 07/10/2018 at 11:38 am

                      Yep. In an early episode he also said he had “a human ancestor” so that become his mum later on.

    Taff, it was that appalling twat Robbie Savage after all. Didn’t he start at United? He appears to love them.

  • Gdawg 07/10/2018 at 4:16 am

    Jeez we were poor. After the early score promised a flood of goals we descended into lethargy and Cardiff had plenty of chances to share the points, with 11 and 10 men. 3 points are 3 points though

    • Chauvelin 07/10/2018 at 10:32 am

      Two things: we got 3 points. The squad was so depleted we started Sissoko, and with the best will in the world, what was his role/purpose yesterday? In effect we played with ten men until his substitution.

      • Chauvelin 07/10/2018 at 10:36 am

        Hopefully, and it seems to be a big hope, we’ll have a couple back for our crucial match at PSV; saying that I suspect Sissoko will play at West Ham to make up the numbers again and save the legs of others. Not expecting us to win against the Spammers because Pochettino will be focussed on PSV.

      • SpurAndy πŸ₯§πŸ’ 07/10/2018 at 10:36 am

        My guess is he’s the muscle to stop Cardiff doing a Watford on us. He’s the security that stops fans getting near the celeb when they get out of the car. Wanyama would be my preference but maybe he over exerted himself against Barca.

              • Chauvelin 07/10/2018 at 10:53 am

                I feel sorry for Warnock stemming back to his Sheffield United days when the club were in effect relegated due to West Ham being cheating bastards being allowed to play Mascherano and Tevez and getting away with it.

                • GDawg 07/10/2018 at 10:56 am

                  The comms said he took over Cardiff and they were in the bottom three of the championship, got them promoted. That is pretty impressive

                  • Chauvelin 07/10/2018 at 10:59 am

                    He’s a bit of an expert at doing well in the Championship.

                    • GDawg 07/10/2018 at 11:03 am

                      Never really climbs higher than mid third of the EPL table, although to be fair that team are pretty low quality. We did our best to play them into form though

                    • Chauvelin 07/10/2018 at 11:18 am

                      His level as a manager is bouncing like a yoyo between the Championship and the Premier League. Looks like Chris Hughton has pushed on from that status to be a survivor in the PL.

  • Ronwol1960-61πŸ•Žβš½πŸŽ·πŸŽ₯ 07/10/2018 at 12:00 pm

    What a disjointed game again… I dont get it…terrible passing again out of defence..its like nobody knows what to do with the ball….Sanchez that way again the biggest culprit. I mean how many passes does it take to get out of the first third???????
    The Good,The Bad and the Ugly.
    The Good certainly was Winks,he looked more mature than most and unlike most didnt look anxiety ridden. His passes were crisp and quick even if they werent earth shattering. I thought he was our best player.
    Moura too had a go and showed brilliance in face of not having too many other players with the same kind of energy. He tried to beat one too many at times but what the hell most of the others were asleep.
    Son was terrible. When he is bad he is bad.
    Dier was ok in this one even without the goal. I also liked Roses energy,he has a go and is generally getting better even though . For me he owns the position now. Trippier wasnt so bad,but not so good either. His heady England days are gone for now.
    Not having Eriksen or Dele hurt but i do think that Winks was
    better than Dembele would have been as his game has gone down recently.
    All in all we got 3 points but were much less than convincing. We looke closer to a mid table side even if Poch lauds our position.
    I think he has to look at parts of his system as the problem. Its hard to see but our passing out of defence being mediocre the same week in week out has not been addressed by the genius,shows a sample of something he cant get right (or fails to see it at all)
    70% possession gives us a false reading of our superiority if thats what you want to call it

    • SpurAndy πŸ₯§πŸ’ 07/10/2018 at 12:05 pm

    • Chauvelin 07/10/2018 at 12:12 pm

      There was one depressing passage of play when ten man Cardiff hemmed our defenders from playing the ball out for what seemed minutes. Plus when the ball was knocked long they won most of the 50 50s.

      • Ronwol1960-61πŸ•Žβš½πŸŽ·πŸŽ₯ 07/10/2018 at 12:19 pm

        Yes andthis is not a one off. This happens nearly every game. Poch is a fcucking genius where is he with this???????
        Sanchez has regressed. Toby is not the best passer in the world. Really nonsense going back and forth. Verts is better. But Poch seems to think that passession is better than getting the ball down quickly. I cant believe though how many medium size and longer balls do go to opposition players when we do kick further.Its uncanny. If we fcucking tried to hit the opposition maybe we would occasionally hit one of ours. Terrible.

        • GDawg 07/10/2018 at 12:24 pm

          Winks made a couple of nice breaks down field in the second half, only to pass it back towards halfway. He wasn’t the only one

          • Ronwol1960-61πŸ•Žβš½πŸŽ·πŸŽ₯ 07/10/2018 at 12:26 pm

            Winks was our best player nevertheless. He did a lot more right than most. Our team looked disjointed. The 3 pts was a lie

  • 89Spurs πŸ‘ 07/10/2018 at 12:09 pm

    Unfortunately, Ron you didn’t mention the biggest culprit. Which was Sissoko, its a shame that there is little cohesion between his feet and his brain.

    • Ronwol1960-61πŸ•Žβš½πŸŽ·πŸŽ₯ 07/10/2018 at 12:14 pm

      Sissoko is an easy mark. He didnt ask to come to Tottenham.He didnt pay 30 mil to come to Tottenham,we did. He wasnt our worse player.Apart from his now knowing who to pass to and not passing more than 5 yards he worked hard and ran more thn any other player.Its not his fault.He doesnt have the talent but he doesnt bother me one bit.Its all the geniuses that I expect a lot more from

      • Caspurs 07/10/2018 at 12:17 pm

        fAKINEL Ron! I completely agree (which is worrying).
        Note to self: Seek medical attention immediately.

  • 89Spurs πŸ‘ 07/10/2018 at 12:18 pm

    Most of your geniuses where injured, bare bones team. Thanks Cas for your support.!!
