Tottenham LIVE: Spurs forum and blog
I've seen Spurs play worse than they did tonight but oh my did they hit the self-destruct button. It was like Spurs of old. Huffing and puffing but couldn't blow the house down.
Pochettino picked a strong starting 11 although I was surprised to see Winks dropped in favour of Dembele. Winks had a great game at Fulham and Dembele had been out of form.
Spurs, with a rather quiet 80 + thousand behind them started quickly and after ten minutes took the lead. Dier scooped the ball forward, Eriksen latched onto the ball and just as it looked as though he may have over run the...
After a couple of bad results and more than a few shaky performances, Tottenham bounced back with a professional and clinical performance against Fulham in the FA cup setting up a quarter final home tie against Millwall. Spurs are in a great position to put silverware in the cabinet and I am hoping for an equally strong side and performance at a full to bursting Wembley tonight.
The fact Wembley is sold out for a Europa league game tells you just how big a club Spurs are although the ten pound tickets will of course have helped but it's still staggering. And what an...
Winning is a habit. Losing can become one too. So whilst Spurs have had a blip recently, it was good to see that Poch was giving the FA Cup his full respect today.
Although the TV and other media had Spurs down to play a back 4, it was clear from the kick off that Spurs were going to play with the formation that had Sen them at their best this season , with 3 at the back and the wing backs punched up. Davies looked more comfortable with this and Trippier has a good cross in him more often than not.
Today we were clinical and professional. A deserved win, although there...
I said after the Liverpool game that it was vital that Spurs focused on trying to win the upcoming cup games. Play strong teams and go all out to win.
On Thursday we went to Belgium and it was a strong ish team. Although when Sissoko starts it looks weak straight away.
We were awful. We lost. So now we head to Fulham on Sunday and we need to win and put in a good performance. A loss would really put pressure on Spurs and with Gent coming to a likely half empty Wembley stadium the following Thursday , we need to get back to winning ways.
So I must admit to being worried...
I really want to stop saying that we have no strength in depth. So I will instead start with saying we have no tactics!!
We had an off day at Anfield. So what was tonight? It simply reaffirmed that we need investment in the summer yet again. Which under Levy will not happen.
We couldn't pass, we couldn't attack. How many times can Kane tweet that we will bounce back?
Lloris- 6 Great save onto the post but he gave away a corner when under no pressure, and kicked a ball straight out of play in the first half. He looks low in confidence and needs the armband taking...
