I am going to start by putting a positive spin on this game today. Lamela showed flashes of brilliance. There you go folks, that is it for positivity. Let me now look at just what was so poor about the Spurs today. Central Defence I know Kaboul has come in for stick last season and this season, and believe it or not, I don't want to give players stick, but when your defensive heart plays as badly as both Kaboul and Chiriches did today, the criticism is going to come your way. Chiriches missed headers and was constantly drawn out of position. Neither he or Kaboul seemed to be communicating with each other and when Kaboul is supposed to be captain, his lack of leadership is simply unacceptable. Enigma Eriksen I epxected great things from Eriksen this season and still do, but his form has to be a cause for concern in the early stages of this season. He drifts in and out of the game far too much, and at present he is simply ineffective. I don't know why he is so low on confidence, but Pochettino must get him playing again, or he will have to drop him. Chadli again drifted in and out of the game. When he got on the ball, he looked positive, but failed to deliver any telling balls into the box. Adebayor woe.. Adebayor the dark side was on show at the lane today. He is a man mountain and won just two headers in the entire game! His link up play was none existent and he just did not look interested at all. When he is good, we all know that he can be brilliant, but when he is as bad as he is today, you could be watching a Sunday league player, although that is possibly disrespectful to Sunday league players! Same frailties, same old Tottenham I have addressed the defensive issues and don't want to go on about them, but the defence looks weak, disorganised and clueless. The same old Tottenham showed up again in the striking areas. It was over forty minutes before we even worried the west Brom goal and we are simply toothless in the final third. Lamela tried to make things happen but those around him were on another wavelength. Yet again we had plenty of possession, but did nothing with it. Having all the possession is pointless if you fail to take chances, but what worries me more is the fact that we are not creating chances. With the players we have, it is baffling to think we are creating so little threat. Points dropped I said after last weeks game that dropping points against Sunderland was gutting, but dropping all three against west Brom is just not good enough at all. If we play like we did today against Arsenal, we will be totally embarrassed. In fact, we will need to play much better to better Forest in the league cup on Wednesday. Europe is no excuse as ten players were rotated so that is simply not an acceptable excuse for today's performance. Next!! We must regroup and move on, but today was poor and a very AVB performance. It is far too early to be worried, but signs are there that this spurs squad is a long way away from the top four. A very long way off.
