    And we were worse when Sissoko came on against Everton.

    Player Watch: Gareth Bale

    I know he hasn't played much recently for RM but has anyone watched him when he has and/or for Wales and able to comment on his current performance levels? Does he still have the same pace, the same rocket shot that he did when was with us?

    Manager watch: Jose Mourinho

    You forgot tactics, which are in his control. I think pumping frequent long balls forward with the high risk of losing possession is happening as per his instruction, but I don't understand why.

    Match Threads Spurs vs Bayern Munich - Match Thread

    Have to remember that almost all these players ran themselves ragged playing as 10 v 11 on the weekend. Can't understand why Poch didn't use his squad.

    Style of play

    Problem is he didn't learn quick. We had multiple games exactly like this last year. Some we got away with, eg. via an Eriksen special from outside the box. Some we didn't. And it seems like Poch hasn't learnt because it's happening again.

    Style of play

    Bruce's tactics: get as many defenders as possible into a small area in front of goal so they have no room to create anything. Pochettino's tactics: get as many attackers as possible into the same small area in front of goal so we have no room to create anything. Key players from last season...

    Player watch: Toby Alderweireld

    I don't blame KWP that much. Great cross and great finish. But at the point de Bruyne hits the ball holding the line for offside is no longer relevant. So at that point KWP should have run to try and get to the ball at the far post, regardless of whether he knew what Sterling was doing. When...

    Team v. Villa

    I think KWP will start. Poch backed him to start at Barcelona so I think will trust him vs Villa. I think our starting XI vs Milan will start vs Villa.

    Do we know why he didn't feature against Bayern?

    Player watch: Toby Alderweireld

    When Herc said Toby's not going anywhere this season he also said his reasons were very genuine. Perhaps he does want to go to Ajax next but knows they can't afford both a transfer fee and a wage that he'd be happy with. So he's seeing out his contract so Ajax can afford him on a free...

    CL Final where will you be watching it

    I'll be in Split, Croatia, trying to find a bar that'll show it. Any ideas?

    New Stadium Details And Discussions

    To illustrate how things have changed (and how old I am), in 1990 I presented at the ticket office two weeks before the season started and bought a season ticket for £90. No waiting list.

    The Mauricio Pochettino thread

    Last season we lost four games total. This season we've already lost four and it's not even December.

    The Mauricio Pochettino thread

    Disappointed to read that Poch is slamming the players. My overriding impression from the recent games is that teams have figured out how to defend against us - using the time afforded by our slow build to get deep and in numbers. They now know to get men around Kane and to track Alli's runs...

    The Spurs Youth Thread - 2017/2018

    I thought we had named a Champion's League squad and had to pick from that. How many young players are in it? Answer my own question: Not many

    Player Watch: Fernando Llorente

    Maybe because Poch knew Kane was likely to be out for Man U and wanted Lorente as fresh as possible for that game? If so I'm happy with his priorities.

    Not watching, but sounds very like the cut back he provided for Kane to hit the bar against Swansea.

    Poch is to in-game management as...

    I've just seen that Poch has said Davies had a big knock vs Dortmund. Why was he on the bench then if he wasn't fit to play? Why not KWP who has played LB for England and presumably can cross with his left foot?
