I can’t for the life of me understand why Mauricio Pochettino didn’t change his tactics, at least by the second half.
Our goal was scored by a quick break and simple football, the rest of the game Spurs resorted to unbelievably slow build-up play after they had scored, and missed chances to go 2-0 up.
I can’t understand why a mature and obviously slower Mousa Dembele, decided it was a good idea, to try and take the ball past one of the best players in the world, just outside his own penalty area, for f… sake !!
Consequently he loses possession and it’s a gift to Utd 1-1, What was Davies doing when the ball comes in for Sanchez to head home, unchallenged ? !
As much as I appreciate all that Pochettino has done for Spurs, I am really disappointed at the tactics he adopted to play today, it played right into United’s hands. We were dire, and I cannot name one single Spurs player who had a good game.
Moura should have played from the start, as I suggested yesterday, Son was hopeless, Eriksen had an awful day, and Harry Kane just went missing.
We were dispossessed so many times, we lost nearly every 50/50 ball, and there was obviously no Plan B, it was the same old boring shit, from the time we scored the opening goal !
I am seriously concerned that if Spurs finish the rest of their EPL games in this mode, we will NOT hold onto 4th spot
I was anticipating that we would probably lose today, but I expected us to put in a much better performance, Utd were average, but we were terrible !
I can’t take a single positive thing out of this game, and if Mauricio Pochettino can, I will be absolutely amazed !
