    He starts the u23s so close. Him reaching old form is another question. A year out is a long layoff

    I got neg-repped to hell back in August when we bought Llorente, and questioned it, saying he was nowhere near what we needed.
    I see a whole lot more people questioning now. Pointless signing.

    After the disaster of the first half, we were allowed some respite as they shelled fairly early on and played on the counter. Still, cant say we did any better really, our use of the ball remained atrocious.

    Oh dear.

    "Tottenham Hotspur you'll always be shit"

    Pathetic performance today - only Sanchez and Sissoko did ok.

    2-0 flattered us massively, Arsenal deserved a bigger victory given their dominance.

    I think you see here why we as a club will probably never win anything.

    Rose on his was out, I expect Alli to leave also, his performance was shockingly bad, his pass completion must have been less than 50%.

    We lost because we couldn't do the basics of controlling the ball or passing to team mates, especially amongst our forward players.

    Arsenal in contrast looked very solid at the back and fluid going forward - we never looked like scoring a goal at any point in the match.

    I think in the context of the game, we did very well to lose only 2-0.

    That’s why I’d be delighted if we could nab Lanzini off West Ham in January. He and Eriksen would have a field day.
    Would also be nice to have another attacking midfielder that won’t guarantee a loss of possession when he receives the ball 75% of the time.

    Bollocks. That was about as shitty as we get. Static all over the park with and without the ball. I don't know why we sometimes play Arsenal as though they'll be complacent against us. Really frustrating. Probably a one horse race this year for the league unless teams start roughing City up.

    Bah, not a good weekend to be a Spurs fan. I guess what goes around comes around, today its our turn to suck it up.

    I don't take it as hard as I used to and I do but at the same time don't envy those of you for whom it's still life and death.

    I'll have a pint of special brew mixed with gold label tonight and pass out blissfully whilst the resulting coma causes the shit and piss to dribble out of me. Again. :D

    I think we should probably be a bit more negative/defensive and play on the counter

    Sure pundits and opposition fans will moan, but we'll have the last laugh by picking up more points including the odd win

    Best team won and by a country mile, many a punter has said that we are punching above our weight and i tend to agree. There is only a certain amount of success a team can get by motivation, and hard training, but without the skill and strength in depth needed at thee very top to win against the best around, we will always be the almost team.

    As poor as we were, Mike Dean's decision to give Arsenal a phantom free kick was a game changing decision.

    That’s the most disappointed I’ve been in us since we mailed in the remainder of the season after The Battle of the Bridge. Just awful.

    We have a real problem with teams who press.

    The inability to make passing moves is dire and it's no wonder why we are diabolical in these away games.

    It might be worth just parking the bus and hope Kane bangs one in from 30 yards as I'm sick of every away big game having the same script

    Eriksen and Alli were absolutely garbage. I don't think I can remember such a rubbish performance from Alli plus his moaning doesn't help when he playing that badly.

    Deserving a complete bollocking is deserving a complete bollocking, no matter how it is dressed up.
    They get more pay in a month than most of us get in a lifetime. Losing is one thing but not even bloody turning up for that money is sackable

    Main issue today was physically. We looked like we were carrying injuries all over the pitch

    Me thinks Dean is a Utd or City fan, use to give us all the calls when scum where chasing the pack, now vice versa since we’ve been on top

    Feels like Poch is slow to adapt quite often. How many times did we have to watch us get destroyed by Liverpool before he thought maybe not playing a high line against the quickest and most agressive team in the league would be a good idea? I love him but he isn't flawless. We should have played the same way we did against Liverpool, Dortmund and Real today.
