Off the pace. but not surprising, We needed more physical and mental strength and on that basis, Mason would have been a better sub for Lamela.

I hate to say this but Son Heung Min's first touch is awful and he looks like slower young Theo Walcott with zero technical ability.

EDIT: Why neg ratings?
That is a little unfair, he's been out for a while with a fairly serious injury and before today he had only had one match to return back to fitness.

Give him time to recoup his physical fitness and match time. Good we have 2 weeks to prepare for wetspam. Hopefully we get back clinton and bentaleb.

I feel we are going to be a strong side to beat. Up and up no matter what.

He played like that before that injury... Of course it's his early Spurs career, but it doesn't look promising. Let's hope he starts improving. :)

Coming back from injury, in the games he did, were always going to be tough - I hope he starts vs west ham and gets some time to grow into the game, not just be part of another teams desperate last 15 to get back into the game.

We have won all 3 games he started in for us this season.

When someone by the name of Jerry Garcia thinks you should lay off the drugs, you should probably listen.

I'm sorry but what? Maybe you are just a wum, but when I watched him before his injury he looked quick, direct and dangerous! He also has a good work ethic! To show how much I like the guy, I was really gutted when he got injured!

How many games is he due to play for S.Korea during this break and when is he due back to the UK? We need him versus the spammers.

Agree, but I hope Poch makes him watch the Anderlecht goal again and lets him know that defensively that's not good enough.
Although initially I felt Verts was at fault, Paul Robinson was in the studio for Setanta Ireland and he called out Son for not closing down the cross which led to Anderlecht's goal as well, interesting that he seemed slow to close down Ozil on Sunday as well, something to work on there, although hopefully just a lack of match sharpness.

Glad he's back though, he'll add a lot to our attack and played a big part in Dembele's goal with the long pass out to Onomah and then moments later was on the edge of the box with a neat lay off for Dembele.

I've very glad he's back too.

Not sure whether not closing down those crosses has anything to do with match sharpness. Maybe, guess we'll find out when he get's back to full fitness. Chadli is very guilty of the same thing.

It's relatively minor in isolation, but I think it's very important if we are going to turn this team into successful winners. Doesn't matter how good a player you are. If Beckham or Giggs had done that, Roy Keane would have no doubt torn strips off them. It's what often separates the merely very good teams into winners.
