What a dissapointing half. it is shocking how damn weak we are in the battles. Always too far away from the opponent., no Aggression. I am really baffled what Mou is telling them? I mean he mentioned what we see in the documentation, but on the pitch it is still mostly a shit show.
It's because the tactics are fucked up.

We are playing a high line with no pressing from the front as a unit.

Which means Saints are easily playing out from the back and able to play in forwards making runs in behind.

Wish people would stop blaming the players when it's clearly a shambles of a system.

We never ever look good these days without Lo Celso. If there's any hope of Mourinho's system working, he's the key. Without him there's no glue between the midfield and the attack, the only creative player is Ndombele and no-one's taking responsibility or showing for the ball.

Lo Celso for Winks and we'll look a different side. If he brings on Sissoko we'll lose.

God we were awful. Thank the lord we have clinical finishers though. Chances are there for us. Step up at the back and in midfield and we can still win this.

I bet he brings on Sissoko in the second half and takes of Tanguy. He just loves Sissoko.

Winks playing with so much baggage in himself. Like a sense of self doubt. Very weak mentality to play in Mourinho team. I'm surprised Mourinho is still considering him in starting XI at all TBH.
 

Who’s our next manager?

Reports that we’re in talks to sell Dele to PSG.If true I hope it’s to raise money to further improve the team with a couple of top players not just to balance the books.

I honestly think that almost all or players know it.

Deep down the fans know it.

And Daniel Levy deep in his gut knows it.

I won’t say it, because we know it.

Even José probably knows it.

There’s seems to be a Dias size hole in our defence.
Ruben? The one at Benfica who looks snappy in YouTube videos playing out but when you watch him often makes silly errors? He'd be decent if we had peak Jan or Toby next to him, but he's not the answer right now.

Jose knows Levy has a huge crush on him, he is doing it intentionally to get more money for transfers. Brilliant stuff, even isolated Kane and allowed Ings to score so we can get him.

You would think that with the transfer window open and Spurs supposedly actively looking at players, the players on the pitch would be giving their all to keep their place in the team but that don't seem to be happening

Apart from a couple of players these are the same players that stopped chasing and running for Poch , need more fresh blood.
