Can Spurs Tuchel Chelsea & Continue In The Cup – Match Thread

Image for Can Spurs Tuchel Chelsea & Continue In The Cup – Match Thread

Here’s wishing all Tottenham Hotspur fans a Very Happy New Year and a fortune filled 2022 – especially VS’ers (as you are the ones reading this!)

Having taken a late three points from Watford on New Year’s Day as Davinson Sanchez hit in injury time, Antonio Conte has a change of pace this midweek as our attention again diverts to our EFL Cup run.

Wednesday evening’s fixture sees us travel up to Stamford Bridge to take on Thomas Tuchel’s high flying Chelsea side and although we are nine points behind them in the table (we have two games in hand) there seems to be trouble brewing if £95million Romelu Lukaku’s recent barbs are anything to go off.

But we don’t need to concern ourselves with that, of more importance is our own performance on the day and as things stand we will again be without Steven Bergwijn, Cristian Romero and Ryan Sessegnon but whether or not that list grows over the next few days remains to be seen.

Whilst we’re still in touch with the upper end of the table, I can’t be alone in hoping for a proper Cup run this year and if we can boot Chelsea out odds move in our favour.

Tottenham Hotspur's foundations lie in another sport, which one?

    Not much creativity in today’s starters outside of the front three. Spurs will be lucky to score two goals with this lot.

  • TK says:

    I expect much sideways passing in the midfield today.

  • TQ2Spurs says:

    Traore would be a waste of money, how is a guy who can’t even get regular starts at Wolves going to improve us? You should ask Jimenez and Jota (when he was at Wolves) how good his service is.

    What does Rodon have to do to get a game? He is the obvious replacement for Dier but Conte clearly doesn’t like him enough to give him a chance.

    • wentworth says:

      Awful first half.
      What did I say? Worst 2 players on the pitch…Tanganga and Doherty. Clueless and lacking in any ability.
      We gave been outplayed all over the pitch, chasing shadows and unable to string two passes together.


  • 123spurs says:

    Poor poor from both players, school boy error, so fuckn spursy typically. Gifting goals when will it stop what was tango doing he is simply not good enough.

  • wentworth says:

    Very disappointing lineup with Tanganga and Doherty. Surely we can do better than this.
    What on earth is Doherty playing at left half for???

  • 123spurs says:

    Spurs are all over the place. Where and is the mindset of these players. Lots of silly fouls giving away. Chelsea up for it spurs are rabbits in headlights

  • Drdrums11 says:

    Royal has his boots stuck in the ground. He can’t move to the ball.

  • 123spurs says:

    A semi final has turned into a training session for Chelsea.

  • 123spurs says:

    Royal was another waste of money

  • 123spurs says:

    No composure at all from the players when on the ball.

  • 123spurs says:

    Sanches again with a foul no need for it, and what was DOH doing. Tanganga is a complete donkey.

    • Love totty says:

      Really pleased to be only two goals down. With luck we can hold them to a five nil defeat and then take them at the lane. What a load of garbage.

  • 123spurs says:

    Spurs are playing if they have one eye blindfolded

  • TK says:

    our first shot on goal was on the wrong goal. oh FFS. Why do I feel like Mourinho is back as manager for a day?

  • 123spurs says:

    It’s like these players never played together, so out of sorts and so many bad performances, must bring on ndomble at least.

  • 123spurs says:

    TK sadly it don’t matter who the manager is these spurs players always has this in them, they are their own worst enemy. Poor weak mentality when it comes to the crunch

  • 123spurs says:

    Brighton had 16 attempts and 6 on target against this lot.

  • TK says:

    Half the match played and only one shot on goal by a Spurs player, and that was an own goal. Conte Out! lol.

    I liked it better when the pandemic actually led to cancelled matches.

  • Shroppie says:

    Spurs seem disinterested
    And the back four just not good enough
    We have no shots on goal
    Back to nuno days

  • TK says:

    Spurs are playing like they have both eyes blindfolded. like they have no boots, much less no spurs. no balls where there should be a pair.

    Football requires playing with balls.

  • Hot Tottingham says:


    Still a long time left in this QF lads!
