    I don't see how so many people have voted for Townsend for MOTM compared to Soldado. Soldado scored one and almost scored another and set up another great chance or two yet Townsend who didn't create anything is currently leading him by 11 votes. I'd understand if Townsend was whipping some crosses in that Soldado was wasting but I think the phrase "flatters to deceive" is appropriate here. Townsend is fast and can beat players which makes it even more frustrating when the best we get from it is a corner

    I only caught the last 5 or 6 minutes, the only thing I picked up was the crowd groaning whenever lamela miscontrolled or gave a loose ball.

    Townsend - MoM
    Walker - excellent
    Paulinho/davies/verts - very good (verts has got his 'cool' back...so nice to see)
    Everyone else - great job.
    Bobby - :love:...always.

    We should have been 3/4 -0 up in the first half, didn't expect that starting 11 but poch revved them up and they went...just should have had more goals.

    Poch will work on us being more clinical.

    Great game to watch; we have our spurs back (and then some).

    Many happy days await us.

    Bentaleb was my motm closely followed by Vertonghen.
    Paulinho does not work in a midfield 2.
    Townsend and walker had lots of space but created the square root of fuck all.
    Should have buried them, now we have a tricky selection before the cup final.........


    Paulinho should not play again.

    I know when I come here after anything other than a win and Paulinho will be "dreadful" and Bentalab/Mason will be "commanding" and "beastly".

    Very Good - Townshend (1st half) and Verts
    Good - Paulinho, Lloris, Walker, Fazio, Soldado
    Meh - Bentalab, Davies, Ericksen
    Poor- Chadli

    What on Earth? How was Fazio poor? Didn't give Gomez a sniff all night but for one wild swing over the crossbar on his weak foot.

    You mean to tell me you watched that match with functioning human eyes and post that not only was Bentaleb "meh" but Paulinho was better than him?

    keep in mind they had different responsibilities. Pauli largely fulfilled his, as did Bents for that matter, but Bents wasted a lot of passes. And go back and tell me WTF he was doing when Salah had a glorious chance to win it late.

    I am going to disagree with a few with Eriksen. Second half I agree he was poor but so was a lot of the team. First half he set one up for Chadli and Soldado who miscontrols it, he was actually spraying the ball around pretty well, especially the inviting balls for Andros to run onto rather than a sideways pass, there was a few stray passes but other players not being on the same wavelength either.

    Bentaleb was excellent and for me MOTM. I thought Andros played really well too, the only downside is that if he could assist or score he would be an absolute gem, he needs to work on that more as he has so much ability.

    I thought that Townshend (especially 1st half) and Verts were good (both 7.5). Benteleb was the most active but had a fair few moments of ball watching (7). I didnt think that Paulinho, Lloris, Walker, Fazio, Soldado were that bad (6.5). They just didnt have the consistency and drive to put Fiorentina to the sword. Chadli had some bright moments and should have got on the scoresheet (6).I though Davies was mostly meh (5).

    Eriksen was 93 minutes of dross. What's happened to the lad (2)?

    He was very good for a big chunk of the game but in the last half hour deteriorated badly in my opinion. Didn't help that his midfielg partner was Useless.

    Didn't the Soldado header (from when Chadli hit the cross bar) come from a Walker cross?

    I think that is being generous to Paulinho and Townsend to say the least. Paulinho did his usual disappearing act and Townsend looked lively while still creating the square root of fuck all, as always.

    Very difficult for Townsend to deliver very much of note when as you rightly pointed out,the players supporting him were all pretty poor.
    We needed Kane playing as our main striker from the start and we might not be sitting in such a precarious position now.
