    haha I still rate him…the thing is he would probably have suited us over Chelsea with the lack of resources we give coaches

    If Son and Kane go who do we get to score goals because Richarlison is not prolific.I agree that without Kane we will perhaps add some pace to our attacking but we would need someone who can pass the ball like him.There is a need for top level strikers with most clubs so it won’t be easy.I don’t envy anyone trying to rebuild this mess while Enic are involved.Please read the article from Worldofhotspur .com about the the big con by Enic eye opening view of the club under Levy

    Son isn’t prolific this season, in fact Son would struggle to get in any team this season. Richarlison hasn’t had the chance to get a run in the side but I would say between Richarlison and Kulu we wouldn’t be too far from where we are now. The point being we would then have enough money to buy a decent keeper and 2 x decent CB so at least we would be able to replace the 3 key areas that are letting us down this season and reduce the number of goals we literally give away each game

    Can anyone explain to me why there only 5 teams who have conceded more goals than us and all of them in the bottom 7,Conte is supposedly a top defensive coach .Our defenders are not good enough but are not helped by Contes insistence on playing only2 in midfield.It is him who consistently plays Emmerson and I assume had a say in the Lenglet loan.I think he is following Mourino as a spent force in world terms.He will probably go back to Italy and get a job with a team who buy all the best players and be a success but he does not improve players and .Where was Sarr last night as he has been better than Hojbjerg on the last two games.A midfield of Sarr Betancour and Bissouma would give us energy to. Close teams down

    Can you paraphrase?

    What’s the big con?

    That Spurs are considered a big club despite winning two league titles in 120 years?

    Or that we charge the highest prices despite consistently flatlining as the 4th or 5th best team in England every year? rarely being better… rarely being worse

    Or is it the old chestnut that Spurs are a business masquerading as a football club?

    No disrespect… I don’t disagree with any of the above… but somehow I feel like I’ve heard it all before… and it’s not going to make me feel any better about the self-sabotage I’ve been watching on the pitch these last few months

    I will give you some statistics since we're halfway through the season...

    We lead the league in defensive errors that lead to a shot... with 13... these errors often lead to goals and you can understand why... conversely... we are 18th in defensive errors gifted to us by our opponent... just 4... so a terrible combination right there

    Our keeper is 13th in save %... that is saves per shot... so that is also a major problem

    In terms of overall team stats... and these numbers are not adjusted to 90 minutes so there is some minor inflation...

    We're 4th in shots on goal... and 4th most shots conceded... a very strange combination

    However... in terms of expected goals... essentially a metric of the quality of shots and a more accurate measure relative to the table... we're 5th best in attack... and 7th best in conceding the least amount so to speak

    So there you have it... this team is shooting itself in the foot every week... and mostly it comes from the goalkeeper

    You ask for a paraphrase .Read the article as it is 4 pages long and you can make up your own mind about the validity.

    Can't argue with it...... but its not a topic that hasn't been mentioned on here..... for a long time

    Levy only wants to make money and will never spend the required money on enough top player wages

    So we need a manager who can get the best out of what we have. And at least give them fight and passion.
    Conte no longer looks like the manager to do that

    I see the Tottenham supporters trust have written to Levy asking him to spell out what his vision is for the club. This was 2+weeks ago and he has said he will give them an answer in February.Why not now or is he waiting for the end of the transfer window to avoid embarrassment.Conte has in his own way asked the same question..Grow some Levy and stop taking the P*** out of your main money providers us the fans

    I'd rather know who the guy is in your profile pic... Peter Frampton? lol
     
  11. The Conte Guest

    For starters, we need to bring in Zaniolo immediately… no more faffing around… if Conte is indeed going then that can be his parting gift

    It should not only send Son to the bench… which is long overdue… but another highly technical better looking big body opposite Kulu is exactly what we need

    Is zaniola good as I don’t know much about him
     
  14. The Conte Guest

    Yes he’s a talent… particularly for the price… similar level/ability to Kulu though rated higher in Italy… around the same age

    I believe he wants in but we’re faffing about with loan clauses while offering 10 mill less… we’ve pretty much lost Lucas for the season… Son is gone… we need to get it done

    When will this idiot Levy pay the price to get a player instead of faffing about till someone else comes in and outbids us
     
  16. Guesty Guest

    The answer is never
     
  17. Guest Guest

    His vision is clear. From playing pretty football, no trophies to ugly football, no trophies. That's how Spurs have evolved from Pochettino to Mourihno to Nuno to Conti.:(:(:(

    What will go wrong will go wrong

    It’s been that sort of season

    Doesn't matter whether you are a defensive coach or not when you have defenders who cannot defend and make basic errors and a keeper to match. Not even young players who you can improve on the training ground. The back 3 needs sacking off and complete back 5 needs to be bought in one whole window regardless of cost. Get them on long term structured deals to spread the cost and then you have a platform to build upon. Without that you have nothing. I'd keep sessegnon and look at him as an orthodox left back and recall reguillon. Gvardiol 85m being the first signing no problem at all. Porro 40m Raya 20m skriniar 50m chillwell 30m
