I’ve been a Spurs fan for 20+ years and with each new season there is always an air of optimism surrounding the club. The usual can we break into the top 4 question is banded about time and time again. After today’s game the answer is no, not yet, I’m hoping Mr Levy and Co were watching and are finally getting ready to spend some money on a defensive midfielder (I’m sorry guys Bentaleb had an absolute mare) and was rightly substituted, wingers or players with some speed namely Bolasie or Shaqiri and finally some proven strikers namely Austin, Berahino or Hernandez. Danny Roses absence was not a good sign, could he be on his way to Chelski, who knows? If he wants to be a bench warmer and only play in the Capital One Cup, good riddance.
After a great 20 min start to the game where we dominated and should have taken the lead after a brilliant bit of play between Kane and Erikson, we sort of petered out after and only started to play with 5-10 mins of the game remaining creating some decent chances. The lack of width was glaringly obvious, Chadli kept drifting away from the left and Dembele was playing out on the right hand side which is not his game at all. Kane was a lone figure up front and did his best. The bench was bare, and the need for more strikers or attacking players was glaringly obvious. We were so desperate I personally would have chucked on Trippier as a right winger and threw caution to the wind.
Poch needs to be more flexible with his formation and have a plan B, C etc. inverted wingers do not work for us, having said that we do not have the right players in the squad to play any other way. There’s still time to make more signings, and we can only look forward. COYS!!!!
