We have inferior fitness and tactics, which negates the technical superiority of our better players. Sheff Utd deserved all three points today - they had a clear system that all their players' understood, they took no risks at the back, and they played for their manager, despite being man for man 'inferior'. I think Poch's time is up. Why he waited until injury tiem ot introduce Moura when Kane had been flat all game is beyond me. Clueless.
Mourinho knows how to set teams up to defend, hence Utd's defensive record when they came second in spite of aging and poor quality defenders and midfielders.
Poch has not got a clue. We should be playing. 433, Sissoko tried to highlight this to Poch a month or so ago, saying effectively that the two in the middle have too much to do and instead Poch insists on playing Dele in a 4231 who adds almost nothing.
That's such a shame, I got what I wanted (change,) and we were still awful.
Really not sure how to think. Is it the player's fault? The Manager's? I'm probably too emotional at the moment to properly think it through, but something has to happen. This isn't the Tottenham we pay for. These aren't the players we pay the wages of.
If he had motivated the players to show us some passion and heart I'd be a lot calmer. But that? That was turgid, insipid football where we only showed heart when the adrenaline kicked in at the end and they were forced to react.
