He’s so so poor isn’t he, who scouted him ffs....
That what Felon82 failed to state.
No, he will keep him. Same story was with Fred and others Mou recruited, although Ndombele was not his pick. Mou just is being pissed losing, so he jumps on anyone and everyone. Plus, it wasn't a dire performance. If subtract Hugo's mistake, Spurs win. One can blame Mou for his tactic, his game plan, but not for critical goalkeeper errors that cost dearly. Two successive games is too much
I said it many times Spurs must obtain a goalkeeper.
Sorry spurporter it was dire and I agree bad goalkeeping error but Burnley robbed of penalty and missed numerous chances in first half which allowed us back in
Has anybody seen the rubbish that Levy dished out to the supporters trust about transfers.He says that the amount of budget will be dependent on the champions league .As we have little or no hope of making the champions league this probably means we ain’t gonna buy any top players so be prepared for a spell back in the bottom half .
Absolutely Preed - some people endlessly think "if we'd done this, or that, or something else we'd have won". Don't work that way dude, the other team could well have done this, or that, or something else. Then they'd have won n'est pas ?
I wouldn't pay attention, rubbish indeed. I would strongly suspect Levy lost his mind, if I heard otherwise
Should have signed the other Fernandes
Thfc we were offered Fernandes last year and as usual Levy would not pay up.Man united were one of the underperforming teams early season and were expected to finish below us but good buys have them now favourites to get champions league.I bet Pochetino is not a happy man now because Solskar is staying.We need a new scouting team poste haste
It’s crazy, the proper Fernandes seems like a steal, our one looks like we were robbed.
Not sure what you think but I think Poch will go to Real Madrid. His first signing will be Kane for £150m then Levy will use that as player funds along with any other players we can actually get money for in the summer (it won’t be much based on this season).
Levy will give the impression that we have spent money but the books will be perfectly balanced.
Just need to hope we can attract some decent players, especially if we don’t make champions league this season.
I’d like to see the following sold/replaced:
Just read this on Football 365:
Tottenham’s defensive disorganisation
The one area of the pitch in which Tottenham don’t have any injuries is also the most disorganised. Improvement came with the half-time switch from a back five – with five central defenders – to a back four and Eric Dier pushed into central midfield, but it really was alarming how lost Spurs looked in the first half against Burnley.
Mourinho has now managed 25 matches as Tottenham manager, and things aren’t improving defensively. The number of clean sheets in his first 25 matches at each club:
Chelsea – 17
Inter – 10
Real Madrid – 15
Chelsea – 10
Manchester United – 9
Tottenham – 3
The instant answer from some will be that Mourinho hasn’t been given the tools to carry out this task, but he always used to define himself by an ability to improve the defenders he inherited. Remember Chelsea in 2013/14, who looked a little washed-up the previous season? Mourinho led a defence of Branislav Ivanovic (30), John Terry (34), Gary Cahill (28) and Ashley Cole (33) to concede 27 league goals that season. He used to be able to do this.
Forget Harry Kane and Son Heung-min for a while, because that statistic is the most troubling. What happens when an excellent defensive coach loses his touch?
As much as I despise them John Terry & Ashley Cole would be in the top 10 of all time Prem defenders Terry CBs and Cole LBs.
Cahill was a standard CB and Ivanovic is better than Aurrier will ever dream to be.
Cole v Davies
Ivanovic v Aurrier
It's not even close
last 25 conceded -
Yet Lampard & Ancelloti were your shining examples of how a new manager can transform a team
Best eleven vs Leipzig for me
Ndombele (even if he was **** in 1st half at Burnley)
I didn’t write it....I do think there is some truth to it though
I still say both Chelsea and Everton look better now than with their previous managers...no matter what the results. More attractive to watch and more of a threat than before
Probably the best of what is available.
I would like to see Tanganga just not sure if he would be better at RB than Aurier or safer than Sanchez at CB in such a big game right now.
Also, Winks for Ndombele after 15 mins when he’s blowing out his ass
I prefer Tanganga vs Aurier but Saturday he was rather disapointing and it's a champions league match...
In December Mourinho criticized Ndombelebecause he was injured all the time. On his return, he played small bits of the match and especially at the end ... He did not start to tenure again but we have all seen that the level of Ndombele since his return is no longer the same. Jose did the same in the past with quality players like Benzema in Madrid, Salah and even De Bruyne... Ndombele must recover but I think that with a real defensive midfielder next to him like Dier, he can bring much more than with Winks or Skipp ..
This match highlighted the risk of defending too deep. The goal came from a bog-standard situation:
Opposition winger has the ball out wide. To defend against that the job of the FB/WB is to stop the cross from coming in, the job of the CBs are to deal with any balls coming by the FB/WB. Which leaves a possible question mark for what the central midfielder should do:
1. Help the FB/WB stop the cross
2. Help the CBs deal with balls coming by the WB/FB
3. Cover the opposition midfielder to stop him from being alone and free to take a shot if the ball were to come there
What happened was: One cross was stopped by the WB, after that a cross came in which was dealt with by a CB and then the ball came to a midfielder who was all alone and used the time and space to take a shot. GK should not have spilled it but it happened and a goal was scored.
Similar situations has happened in the past. Against Norwich there was a situation where Vertonghen wanted Bergwijn to move uo and cover a pass to the side or back but Bergwijn ignored his captain (with 10 years more experience) and instead ran to cover behind where there already was a player covering. The result was an easy pass by Norwich.
Yep, the situation irritated me..... I used to play as a defender and when midfielders tried to do my job then the situation always got more complicated....
N'Dombele analysis from Burnley game.
A talented player but super lazy, people are wondering why the defence has to go long because they can only pass it to each other so long before they get squeezed out and thats because there's literally no movement from the midfield or forwards no one wants it.
