    Tottenham in talks with the NFL to host American Football in new stadium

    They've announced that the game at the new stadium will kick-off at 6pm our time. I doubt will try it for the first game here, but it'll be interesting to see if we go for the double header and try to get an early Sunday kick-off

    Their defense had the spike because they signed some good players in free agency that year, most of which are still there and probably won't get suspended every second week, and Landon Collins made a huge leap in performance from his rookie year. Playing opposite a bad offense didn't help either...

    We've tried to do it at the Etihad the last two years and it didn't work. Both of us were using different formations in the game at WHL too, and City are a much better team than they were then.

    Our press definitely wasn't up to standard, but with Alli and Lamela unsure of what to do I don't think it would have made much of a difference if Kane was pressing to his best. I don't think trying to press them was the right option, certainly not with a 4-2-3-1.

    When they had the ball they went to a back 3 with Walker going to the right of a back three, Laporte to the left and Delph pushing into midfield with Gundogan. De Bruyne and Silva were then moved highish and wider between our CBs and fullbacks. Alli and Lamela didn't really know what to do. They...

    If I could be bothered to watch the game back I could show you us trying to press but doing it poorly. They way they set up Alli and Lamela didn't know whether to shit or wind their watch. They always had at least one spare man in the middle and it caused us havoc. We were bit better at it at...

    Player Watch Player Watch: Erik Lamela

    Well if you don't mind ;). I'm struggling to remember a single chance he created or when he himself looked like scoring himself. As yet people were mentioning him alongside Eriksen and Demeble who were outstanding. And there's the Lamela cliché again, "put in a great shift". He worked no...

    We tried it in the first half against City in the away game. We tried to press in this game too but we were so bad at it and City's set up nullified our front four and the two behind had too much space to cover.

    What did he do that was so great in the Juventus game?

    He's had a couple of decent games (Swansea away in the Cup he played really well), but he's been average at best in most games that have been in the balance. There's been a few game where we've been well ahead that he's come on late and created a chance which inflate his creativity in the...

    A player with those qualities could make a good central midfielder. Lamela isn't that player.

    Lamela is a massive level below any of them.

    The NFL Thread

    It's still mostly the same team that went 11-5. They definitely need about 3 OL players. They had an injury crisis at WR last year (still have Marshall and Shepard though who would be a decent 1-2 if he's traded) and the DB's seem to get suspended by McAdoo every week. Most of the reporters I...

    Running around chicken-headedly isn't helping the team.

    Need to either go with a back 3 in the second or 433 with a flat three in the midfield. They're making Lamela, Eriksen and Alli redundant when they have the ball. Would also like to see Son on, but he'll probably wait a while for that.
