I watched it and this is spot on
There's nothing in the game that irritates me more. We ought to have a nickname for that pass (like a nutmeg), perhaps the yoyo pass, or the fuckwit pass. Then Opta can include it in their stats, and the fans an shout FUCKWIT every time someone pl
I've have never heard anyone describe Senderos as world class for 1 min, never mind 88.
Because he's regarded as a solid young LB.
He's Ben Davies.
Played successfully in the Premier League for Swansea City having won his place at a very young age.
Lots of people have spoken highly of him.
You've not been reading the headlines much, and anyway I don't like the implication that we can't sign a back-up player if he's not 'been in the healines' like some kind of superstar.
But but but we need a good first choice left back now. Rose is not.
Great idea. How about layo. The opposite to ole.
Who should we buy?
It's hyperbole. The point being that you can't have a defender that takes "15 minutes to get into it". It takes a few seconds to concede a goal.
Erik Aceituno Riquelme.
I wonder if any of those players are banned form their local supermarkets for doing the same with the groceries on the shelves? Its like a type of 'yips!'
I didn`t see the match but for me last season Dembele continually slowed down the tempo of our game so this is very encouraging.
From the little I did see, Lamela had a huge advantage over the rest of the Spurs team as it looked like the rest suffer from daltonism.
What's Bobby Carlos doing these days?
He came on and you could tell Poch instructed him to shake it up abit, he got on the ball and moved it about turning the opposition and got us going...it was good to see after the lumbering awful Paulinho went off.....
Doing lines and doing every bitch available
Hope this is a sign of things to come with Dembo.
I am a fan of his, but tbh he always does well when coming on as sub when the game is stretched and players start to tire, i want him to do his stuff over 90m not just when coming on after 60....but i would start him over the others all day, Paulinho is really poor, i am done with him.
Lloris 6.5 good performance as usual, not much to do
Naughton 6 largely stuck to defending until late in the game
Davies 6 again a conservative performance - decent sense of how to close down defensive space
Dier 6.5 simple stuff done well, remarkably good positional sense for a 20 year old
Vertonghen 6 generally capable - the events leading up to their goal were a bit flukey
Bentaleb 6 our midfield was sloppy, especially in the second half - Bentaleb less at fault than most, but still lost possession too often
Holtby 5.5 lots of huff and puff, little precision and caught in possession too often
Paulinho 4.5 similarly, couldn't keep possession, passed sloppily and didn't compensate with any attacking verve - I thought the mess-up for the goal was more of a fluke than a cock-up, but it doesn't exactly add lustre
Townsend 5.5 I thought he played better than most people suggest - when we were totally inert through most of the central 50 minutes fo the game, he was at least trying stuff and, as with last season, he was let down by lack of movement from his attacking colleagues
Kane 7 good team play throughout and an excellent goal
Soldado 7 hard worker, but without much profit until his excellent finish, for which I have given him a whole extra point - not enough movement off the ball in the first hour
Dembélé 7 I haven't seen Dembélé influence a game like that in a long time - finally we had someone who could hang onto the ball high up the pitch and, unlike last season, he would actually pass it to a teammate
Lamela 8 transformed the game and the result from the moment he came on - unlike Townsend, Lamela dribbles without losing sight of where his teammates are, leading to simple, effective things like his gentle, precise push into the path of an almost-unsighted onrushing Kane for the winner
Chadli 6.5 played pretty well and laid on an excellent chnce for Lamela
