    Player Watch: Tanguy Ndombele

    If he doesnt measure up, I would simply move him up the field close to striker. He can amble around and do the damage when he gets the ball. Atleast then CM - engine room wont stink of laziness. Its going to be difficult for him - how do you teach work ethic ?

    That MNF analysis exactly what I have been saying all day yesterday here. Moment GLC came on, he ran into space & changed the dynamic of the game. Nothing to do with back3 or back4. Anyway...To see that MNF analysis in more detail is just a slap in the face for fans & manager. I can clearly...

    Player Watch: Tanguy Ndombele

    Having said all about his performances & Jose outing him in public....I do sincerely hope Jose starts Tanguy against Leipzig and motivates Tanguy to prove him wrong. He was imperious against Leipzig when he came on. The lad has to believe in himself & just give it all. Jose does get under the...

    What a load of BS Seriously...I never said I agree with Jose tactics. - so dont put words in my mouth. Was Ndombele shit in first half ? YES Did Ndombele move his arse in first half ? NO Do I agree with Jose that we didnt have a midfield in first half ? YES I dont know if Jose was...

    Couldn't disagree more. First Half : Ndombele was standing near the center circle, neither moving forward or backward to receive the ball. There were 2 Burnley players cutting his passing lanes. But then, did he move ? nope. With no option to play ball through from back, our CBs kept hitting...

    Jose specifically said 'There was no midfield in first half'...which means he wanted Tanguy to play in CM but he didnt do his job...And thats exactly what I saw as well. Rewatch the 45, even however painful it could be...Tanguy never shows up for the ball from back line. Two Burnley players...

    Player Watch: Tanguy Ndombele

    Ndombele seems to pick & choose his game when he wants to be involved. For a side thats struggling with injuries, that not good enough. Yesterday's first half , he didnt mispass because he simply didnt showup for the ball. Our CBs had to go long to noone up top, because Ndombele was not moving...

    Ndombele had a full preseason. He has worked under 2 manager for more than 3 months each. Number of games all competitions he has finished 90min is just 5 which includes 2 games against Belgrade, 1 against Norwich. It is not just his fitness, its his willingness to wanting the ball. Yesterday...

    On the contrary I believe we can win the 3 (Atleast 2w1d) My rational below: Wolves at home: Wolves play Thursday in Europa we have 7 days to prepare. While the tie is already over(4-0) they don’t have the luxury to rest too many players. Jose gets 7 days to solve the problem. Every injury...

    It is not impossible for a manager to play false 9 and still get results. But for Jose, even that’s dented because of fitness issues of Lamela & Ndombele. If we can get them playing even 70 min a game, we can have enough creativity to dismantle most sides

    Facts are since Son came to Spurs , there has been only 3 games where we didn’t have both Son or Kane...drew 1 (Everton)lost 2 (Anderlect Ajax SF 1st leg) . Even in those 3 we had likes of Llorente & Njie. Our current situation is so fucked up. Given this, Talking about manager faults & talking...

    Problem is not Jose or his negative press conferences. He didnt put us into this mess. He didn't create contract mess with Eriksen. He handled it brilliantly. He eased Lo Celso into games and helped with gain confidence. Now ,not many talks about Eriksen.When we had Rose LB issues & Davies...

    Match Threads Spurs vs RB Leipzig 1st leg - Match Thread

    Nkunku is the one , I am really worried. He is so good in whatever position he plays. He is being played in CM, LW and as AM. Very good at setpieces. In Bundesliga, he has the most number of key passes (51) for U23 players - more than Sancho (47). No idea where he will be deployed - My guess...
