    I just don't see enough in Ndumb. I think him, Moura, Sanchez...possibly Aurier as well.....won't last the distance with JM
    We just need better players than them (and others....but the list will be too long!)

    Worst news possible today Son broken arm out for a few games.It was on the cards we would suffer injury when we missed signing striker in window.Not sure what Mourino will do now as we are not strong enough defensively to sneak results. Ali and Moura must get their fingers out and maybe Bergwijn plays up front or even parrot.we may have to change system so as to include Fernandez and ndombele. We do have good attacking players but nobody strong enough to hold the ball up so expect plenty of balls over the top

    Where's our 'we don't need a back up striker crew' ?

    Don't all come forward at once

    We don't really hit the striker in the true sense of the word do we.
    We play through the lines so I think we need the best finisher of those we have available.
    Limited in options I agree
    Bergwijn & Deli I suppose. with Moura if we play 3 up.
    Hopefully Parrot on the bench.

    JM must be doing his nut in private

    This will be a test for Mourino now.If this was city Pep would improvise and play with a false nine and they would still score through Stirling and the other midfield players they have.His press release was pessimistic when he should be showing the players some real optimism..

    Lloris
    Aurier, Toby, Sanchez, Taganga
    Ndobele, Dele, Winks
    LoCelso, Lucas, Bergewijn

    As Mou said, we will play w/o a striker. I would say, very much like LFC.

    Well Felon, the looking forwards not backwards didn’t last very long. No striker was bought,Maurizio has gone, **** it up and move on. We now have to do the best we can, why do you always get great pleasure in saying, “ooh look, it’s going bad, told you so!”?

    Although I would love it if we got Crouchy for a couple of games- that would be fun!

    Sorry VoR I must've missed the part where you became arbiter of this forum.
    When you harped on about Grealish not being signed that wasnt looking back I spose?

    The reason il quite happily say told you so on certain issues is the amount of abuse I've had from many pretentious types for calling many of these things that have happened.

    Yet where are they all now?

    Mou being Mou is, obviously, exaggerating. Son injury is not as horrible as Harry's. It is not a leg and Sonny isn't tending the goal. Arm will heal in 5-6 weeks and most of that time Son can ride the stationary bike to keep his muscles fresh and at later weeks even run and kick the ball. His rehabilitation, in other words, is not as long and as intense as Harry's. There is no fear of setback the Kane's recovery carries.
    Levy bought Mou 2 players. Not as top notch as the two Mou lost , but not a slackers either. Both Bregewijn and Fernandez will contribute and I can bet we will see Parrott, if any of the two for some reasons wont. We could see Parrott regardless.
    Anyway, Son will be back against Everton on 11th of April or even a week sooner against Sheffield Utd. I can only hope that Harry will get back to training by then. In that week middle there will be UCL quarter final 1st leg. If Spurs survive RB, Son will be available to play.

    Felon just give it a rest. All you do is winge. So what we don't have a striker and a back up this and that. We have a coach that's won the lot, we have arguably the best stadium in the world, a training ground which is the envy of the rest of the league and we're 1 point of 4th place. If you can't find any positives in that you need help. If he want to take our club forward with all your knowledge either go and get your coaching badges and get in that way or go and earn billions so you can buy the club. Yes maybe a billion that's how much the club is worth now even with the lack of silverware.

    And the difference between us and the lot down the road is that they were already a well established top 4 club winning things before the moved into there new ground maintaining there top4 status while the stadium was being built and paid for. We were not an established top4 club and managed to become one even though we're having the stadium being built and paid for. Thank Poch for that, we can now attract the quality of manager that can win us things which we couldn't before. Maybe with what's going on at City now you can see why it's so important to build your revenue stream, thank Levy for that. Commonsense really

    Agree with vor, Mp is the one to blame for not having a back up striker. Lamela's injury problems means spurs have only 3 viable attackers in Berg, Dele and Lucas, it's going to be physically demanding on them as they will have to play a lot of minutes.

    Dele missed several chances vs Villa, however, the shape of the team was better with Lucas playing off the right and i would give it another go tonight. I don't like the Winks/Dier combo, however, i have a feeling JM will start with it again, with Loco making up the midfied. The biggest problem with the defence is Toby he is getting slow and too easily outpaced and he's not jumping well at corners. Lloris needs to stay of the red wine as he has been a bit dodgy coming off his line in recent games. I hope spurs can get a win and keep a clean sheet (wishful thinking) or at worst a 0-0 draw. Coys

    Well let's carry on struggling every year when it comes to buisness end when we inevitably tail off because of the same constant mistakes & negligence.
    You can call it whinging but it's not settling for this permanent sell us short buisness model.
    We will continuously be in this never ending cycle of nearly bust nearly bust if the manager isn't given the tools for the job and the team is constantly too thin or unbalanced.
    These are just facts that need addressing , yes we can and will try to cope all very valiant but it's always completely flawed great if you have little to no aspirations but I want us to be winners not nearly men.
    (Or at least give us a proper fighting chance)

    I've put a few regular posters on ignore, the reason why is related to this:
    https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/whinger
    Never anything positive to say - why bother with people who only sees and mentions negatives and never sees anything positive in anything?
    From time to time I do use the un-ignore, there are some signs that they might say something positive but that might be just me seeing what I want to see (something positive or at least a change for the positive) :)

    Might it be possible to start one thread about Levy and another thread about Pocchettino?
    Doing so might free up the other threads from the comments about Levy and Pocchettino, for me (maybe for others as well) it would be nice to see one thread without complaints about those two and/or complaints about recruitment.

    Responding, purely on a personal basis, the moany, critical theme comes through because we’ve made such big rickets in the transfer market, passing up at the right price or failing to get players, much of whom have featured above in the recent threads.
    Sure I’m a fan, but it’s been increasingly difficult not to criticise either MP or DL because they have ruled over the past 5 years. Of all the gripes, the striker one is the most criminal for me. It’s surely not beyond the Club to have de-risked the current situation, as so much rides on the next three months - talent money from CL and Top 4....it’s a no brainier. So painful. Sure we still love them, but pain, such pain....COYS

    We have gotten striker already. His name is Troy Parrott. JM is playing his regular mind games. He wants to take a credit for developing the lad, if he pans out and to protect himself from criticism should he not. Mou planned to keep him off first team for those reasons, something that is not possible to do with a striker signed. Now with injury crisis Parrott will be used. Not in UCL, but in EPL we will see him. Mourinho knows how to create a gale that will bring attention to his persona and keep attention away from the players, the club and its problems. Don't believe him, Spurs will win 2:0 or 1:0 over RB. COYS!!!
