  • So how does Poch deal with our starting a game and what is it going to take to get the whole of the Spurs team switched on right from the get go. Can’t help wondering whether Toby would have prevented Juve goal number 1. having said that i don’t think this team knows just how good it is. One massive improvement to the team has been Moussa. The one that is playing now is the one we bought from Fulham not the one we have had for the last two seasons. Absolutely magnificent cant wait to see him in action against Man City at Wembley in fact cant wait to see how we play against City at Wembley cos, right now, I think Spurs are the second best team in the premiership and one of the best in Europe certainly up there with Juve and Real . However, the real test comes on the 7th March – that game will be a very different encounter cos its a cup tie now – winner takes all except we have a 1-1 draw in our favour. Poch has to sort out Aurier! how we win any games with Dier gaffs and Aurier mentalism I dont know. Cant wait for Toby to be back and get some captaincy and order at the back again! Palace and Huddersfield next up whilst Manure entertain the Chavs! and then city play the Chavs at the Etihad. 5 points above Chavs by the 4th March, how good would that be? well done lads ! amazing come back amazing stats. Were all pinching ourselves now!

  • Since losing to Man City we are unbeaten. 7 clean sheets in 13 matches, conceding just 9 and scoring 29 goals. All without Toby bar 1 match, and so our defence hasn’t been doing too badly without him.

  • We defend as a team and attack as a team. So I find it difficult to point fingers at any area tbh. Kane is forever covering both ends of the pitch, Eriksen generally always covers most ground, Dembel shields defence and created attacks. Great!

  • It’s worth noting that their first goal was clearly offside; but it’s also worth noting that no one was organising our defence – in that situation i.e. where it was, Lloris should have been screaming his head off – and our ‘defensive’ elder statesman (Vert) should have been the organiser – when in fact, his positioning really made him the main culprit. I’d also say that Lloris was also caught short, his weight distribution was wanting and if he’d been on his toes and not completely flat footed, might well have saved it – that said, our performance for most of the rest of the game was simply outstanding – and we’ll learn and grow from that .

  • Hugo was on his toes. No goalkeeper is “flatfooted” in that situation. Imo, he actually did very well to put his right hand on the ball. (As he did with the 1st penalty).

    Jan was indeed busy in organising the defence. He can clearly be seen gesticulating and talking to them all. The defence was however set up for a floated cross out wide and was also lined up to step up for the ‘off-side trap’. But, when Higuain cleverly took a couple of sly paces from the edge of the group, into open space, no one went with him. Even so, the offside trap did work but the sneaky and possibly rehearsed free-kick, not only wrong-footed the Spurs defence but fooled the linesman as well. The big mistake in conceding that goal was firstly Jan’s poor clearance and then Dembeles rash challenge. (Dembele actually fouled both players that were near him, in quick succession).

    Davies was just unfortunate with the penalty that he conceded.

    They took us by surprise in those opening few minutes but it then served the team well to take a huge step-up, put us on the front foot and go on to control the match for the best part of 70 minutes.

    It’s now set up for an intriguing second leg at Wembley. I can’t wait.
