Totteham Hotspur finished off their pre-season campaign with a disappointing defeat in Spain to Girona.

Lucas Moura fired Spurs ahead in the first half with a well-placed free-kick, but the young Spurs side allowed the La Liga outfit back into the game and they took full advantage to lead 2-1 at the break.

Things didn’t improve after the break and we went further behind, with the score line finishing 4-1.

Granted, many of our key players are missing, but you expect better, no matter who is pulling on our famous shirt.

Michel Vorm – 6 – Was called into action more times than he should, made a couple of solid saves before being replaced at half time. 6

Serge Aurier – 5 – Made little impact on the game during his first half outing, expected more from a senior player in a young side. He said recently he was going to challenge Trippier, on this display he should be more worried about challenging Walker-Peters.

Ben Davies – 5 – Looked very uncomfortable playing at centre-back and had a shocker.

TJ Eyoma – 4 – Unfortunately the youngster looked completely out of his depth. Gave the ball away too easily and needs to work on his positioning.

Anthony Georgiou – 6 – Looked better at left-back during the first half when Moura was on the pitch and won the free-kick which led to the goal. Switched to left wing in the second half but couldn’t influence the game.

George Marsh – 5 – After a solid tour of the USA, I was expecting a better display from Marsh. Gave the ball away cheaply and needs to track back more.

Oliver Skipp – 5 – Another who caught the headlines in the States and struggled in the middle of the park today. Overrun by the opposition in the second half.

Luke Amos – 5 – Set to be awarded a new contract after catching the eye during the International Champions Cup. Hopefully, this display will put his feet back on the ground, sloppy with the ball.

Georges-Kevin N’Koudou – 5 – At fault for Girona’s third goal with a sloppy pass. He just doesn’t have what it takes to break into our team, ship him out.

Lucas Moura – 7 – Our standout performer of the first half. Scored a lovely free-kick to give us the lead and was substituted at half time for Llorente. He must start against Newcastle next week.

Heung-min Son – 5 – Expected more from a senior player to set an example for the youngsters. Needs to put this game behind him ahead of Newcastle next Saturday.

Paulo Gazzaniga – 5 – Just like Vorm, was tested more than he should have been due to a dodgy defensive display. Pulled off a great save from a header with 17 minutes left to play, but should have done better with the third goal.

Kyle Walker-Peters – 5 – Expected more from KWP, came on for Aurier for the second 45 minutes and made little impact. Disappointing.

Japhet Tanganga – 5 – Another youngster who isn’t ready for this level. Gained valuable experience, but must work on his game.

Jonathan Dinzeyi – 5 – Just another young player making up the numbers, overwhelmed.

Christian Mahoma – 5 – Same as Tangana and Dinzeyi, gained senior minutes of football, but no impact.

Fernando Llorente – 5 – Came on at half time and had little service in order to make an impact.

Shilow Tracey – 5 – Was surprised he even made it on the plane.

Jamie Bowden – 6 – Came on for the final seven minutes in place of George Marsh.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Can’t believe jack Roles was not picked for this game he would influence the game far more than the ones that were picked and deserves a chance he has been there since he was 6 and scores goals for fun I don’t know what John McDermott is thinking at this moment in time he decided to take him to Germany with the under 19 squad very strange I also noticed when he played in the recent Enfield game he has taken him from playing behind the striker as a number 10 scoring and making goals to more defensive duty’s as goals win games I would prefer him to stay up front where he belongs and I believe they are ruining a very good player for Spurs in the future.
