    Lloris 6 Concerned over his form this season let another weak shot in today.

    Trippier 8 Put some great crosses in but not enough desire to get on the end. When needed defended well.

    Sanchez 5 Poor today got run ragged off Rondon and looked lazy for goal early on.

    Jan 7 Again our best defender surprisingly subbed didn't look happy.

    Davies. 6 Steady defensively but nothing going forward and lost possession too much.

    Winks. 6 Did ok in first half but surprisingly subbed 2nd half early.

    Dier 6 Looked tired and frustrated eventually getting booking for mouth.

    Son 7 Looked the most like likely of the supply line to contribute today but not quite his day but worked hard.

    Eriksen. 6
    Uncharacteristic for him but gave the ball away time after time and had a bad day at the office.

    Alli. 6 Been poor all season for me and carried on the same. If he doesn't score he often contributes nothing.

    Kane 7 Got his trademark goal and linked up well. Nothing more.

    Dembele. 7
    Carried and kept the ball well and injected some much needed urgency. Can't understand why he isn't starting.



    Llorente 6. AGAIN offered nothing but to be fair got offered nothing service wise.

    Two points dropped.

    Well it was a lovely sunny day, the stadium bedecked in Spurs banners and the like, pre match chat with mates in the bar ace.....then the ref blew the whistle.

    I'm lucky enough to have a half way line Club Wembley seat this year, amongst the best seats in the house me thinks. From there I've seen our game unfold against Burnley, Swansea and now the Albion and it has been a truly painful watch.
    A tad generous Fran....

    Sent it too soon. A tad generous Fran, with a number of poor performances in the team.

    What frustrates is that players that you look to influence the problem of 10 behind the ball - Dele and Eriksen for example - just can't grab the game by the scruf of the neck and do something. Okay Dele made the goal, but what else...and if I had a pound for every time I watched Eriksen fail to turn and drive into the opposition's packed ranks, I'd be lunching in the Bobby Moore suite with the rich and famous.

    Six points dropped from three horrid draws against inferior opposition doesn't bode well. As ever I seem to see the absence of pace in the side as a real killer, particularly against outfits like the three we've dropped the points against.

    I think Sanchez alongside Jan and Toby in the New Year will be vital to our progress towards CL quarters and other domestic matters.

    Fran your point about Hugo is echoed by me. I thought he was poorly positioned on Tuesday for the goal and again was flat on his heels again. Poor.

    We're letting the others muscle us out of the top 4, not by their good performances, rather our poor ones. Get your R's in gear lads.

    Why is it U, Me and the tea lady can see it Baz but the powers that be seem to be completely oblivious to it?

    The lack of Players with the mentality to make something happen when the chips are down is all too prevalent in this Good side.

    Kanes got it, maybe Son (on occasion) Toby/Jan as well maybe but the rest (and don't get me wrong we have players with quality/ability etc) but all seem completely content when things aren't going well with watching the game pass them by and peeter out into a draw or loss.
    Of course there is the exception to the rule (Dortmund) but too regularly seasons past if things don't get off to a good start everyone slips into comfortable keep it tidy mode instead of stepping it up and making something happen.
    This criticism must also be aimed towards Poch (wether hamstrung by ming? Or not) he needed to be more pro active in the Transfer window to acquire some pace/trickery going forward instead of settling in with 'favourites' who are tatood on the team sheet wether they perform or not.
    And also Poch needs to alter what's unfolding in front of him when it's obvious what's going on isn't working.

    Eriksen was a 0 for me - a total waste of time on the pitch. You just knew that he was going to mis-control or give the ball away every time he got it. The final straw was when he backed out of a challenge that he should have been first to.
    Sanchez was unusually guilty of poor defending for the goal even though he had already won the duel - he then failed to actually clear the ball and I think that is what fooled Lloris.
    Son (surprisingly), Trippier and Winks had decent games but were let down by others around them. Why was Winks subbed? He was driving the team forward whilst Dier was a good bet for a red card - very strange Mr Poch.
    I said before the game that we need wingers to get to the byline and cross - we only did it a couple of times and should have scored from both. Trying to play through the middle of a packed defence and putting in crosses from near the halfway line was never going to work. Come on Poch - sort yourself out!

    Tuned in to 5live yesterday for the commentary and just as my ass hit the sofa, so Rondon's shot/pass/blow-football effort hit the post and in. Cue sentences containing "again" and "here we go". Playing an abysmal WBA side should have guaranteed the bacon but my glass is ALWAYS half empty and my heart sank along with my ass when the inevitable happened and Hugo contrived to concede, along with not a little help from Alli and Sanchez. Then all I hear from the commentary crew - Chris Waddle one of them - is "how much longer can Ben Foster keep up this timewasting 'til he's booked". Answer - from the goal was scored 'til the 82nd minute. What a fecking afternoon wasted, waiting for the most predictable result of the day (for me anyway) to finally creep over the line.
    I'm well pi**ed once more after the Wanderers debacle and this turgid result. No point having 70-odd percent of play against a real bucket side if you can't rack up a decent score. And while I'm at it - Dele Alli, if you don't want to play for us any more, then give your agent a bell and he'll fix it I'm sure. Spare me.

    The timewasting by Foster was an absolute disgrace. He's been allowed to get away with it for ever and you knew yesterday was going to be same old story. He wasted several minutes and Mike Jones let him get away from it. A fecking disgrace to the fans who turned out to watch a football match, allowed to be broken up by his antics. We were bad enough as it was, without him making the day worse.

    Fantastic. Write more Gordon Mc. Spot on with all. Ericssen a dead ball specialist my arse! Dele's head is in the tv studio! Dier is raging against everyone! Sissoko...well!! Love Dembele but he's never fulfilled. Never scores....never looks threatening....but a brilliant dribbler. Carrying too many passengers to be a consistent top side. COYS!

    Oh yes....Sanchez is Rolls Royce quality. His reaction to the goal says that he instantly realised he should have done better. A Ledley in the making. What a player we have.

    Absolutely agree Bruski. He's 21 and plays with great maturity. I've enjoyed watching him and did again on Saturday. If we can keep him, he will become the legend that The King is.
