Can someone explain why our second goal wasn't ruled out for offside? We had like 4-5 players clearly offside when the FK was taken and yes, none of them touched the ball, but it's quite clear at least one of them tries to head it.

Does that not count as interfering with play?
+1
I think it's a bit of a grey area in football.
SS, that's the issue with the offside rule. Passive offside leaves a lot of scope for discretionary decision-making.
The literal rule of offside, if a player touches the ball or impedes the goalkeeper's line of sight, then it is offside.

Seeing as none of our players touched the ball or affected Krul's vision, they are not offside.

However, common sense should dictate that if a player (or 4 players in our case) go for the ball, then it should be ruled offside as it obviously affects the positioning and decision making of the goalkeeper. But this isn't the case.... i aint gna complain to be honest. Eriksen needs that type of luck after hitting the crossbar twice now with his previous freekicks, he's had a dry run of 12 games without a goal. Time for him to get back on the scoresheet more regularly. Plus this is a decision that has gone against us numerous times and is one of the many laws in modern day football that needs to be amended.
Only 1 possibly 2 was in an offside position. There was a silly Newcastle player playing most of them onside including Kane and bentaleb who where the only 2 who troubled Kruls brain. Nothing wrong with that goal, good call Lino

We was owed one anyway, Ayoze (good player) was offside for their goal
Upon closer inspection, I think you are right Bwf. Bentaleb is onside and I think Kane is level as the ball is played. They're the two players who make a go for it. Credit to Eriksen for the ball in.

How disappointing was Lamela in that match! I lost count the amount of times he gave the ball away. Then he just stands there holding his hands up like someone should've been there to receive the pass.
+1
On the other hand, he did make good forward runs but no one seemed to want to pass to him. It's going to take time to integrate him into the team, Townsend has been first choice for a while now.
+2
Agreed with both the above statements.
We were mediocre, Newcastle were bad. Danny Rose MOTM imo.
+1
I thought Paulinho and Bentaleb looked pretty solid throughout the match, Jan looked solid at the back too.
I'm glad Danny Rose has proved the haters wrong. I always knew he would come good.

Paulinho was in no way solid. I don't see how people can still suggest he deserves to stay at WHL.
I think you've already made your mind up about Paulinho, so I'm not going to enter into an argument here.
I don't think Paulinho is likely to stay, but today he was pretty good. Arguably, our best midfielder(if not best player) over the 90 mins.
+3
Brazilian Paul was ok vs Newcastle, agree with suraj. Would I prefer Dembele? 100%
30 GOALS!
+3
YES! He's at the tied for #1 with SERGIO AGUERO. Give Harry that Golden Boot!
+1
England's savior, phenomenal Harry Kane.
Vorm, Dier, Fazio, Vertonghen (c), Rose; Bentaleb, Paulinho, Chadli, Eriksen, Lamela; Kane

I am happy with everything, apart from Dembele not starting AGAIN!!

Please can everyone watch Fazio and Paulinho and tell me what you think
I'm sick of Paulinho, he does like nothing.
SS, he got 2 assists. :P
I only watched the last half hour, but Paulie got Sky Sports MotM.

I will say that when DEMBELE came on we dominated the midfield...but we also switched to a 3 man, so...
Fair enough, he did ok today haha
Paulinho was s**t today. Absolutely woeful. And those assists meant absolutely nothing at all, there was no skill in either. He slows down our play, always looks backwards, and is a liability.

Dembele just isn't being given the chance to prove himself. I feel really sorry for the lad.
Paddy, those assists was tongue in cheek. I thought he was good, personally. Your statement seems more to do with the fact that Dembele hasn't been playing. I think he has got more chances than Paulinho and has done ok(not great, not bad either).

I don't understand why Paulinho was played either, but he had a solid(better than most our players) game and his set-piece delivery was miles better than what I have gotten used to with Eriksen usually.
+3
I'm probably one of the most die hard optimists on this site - I'm often guilty of looking over problems of the manager on faith that they are working towards something. Lately it's been incredibly difficult to do so - I know we all have pretty much given up on this season... but today, I turn on the Chelsea v Man U game only to see Man U giving the type of performance we were promised from Poche's teams - great pressing, team movement, quick passing and intelligent attacking play, while finding a balance between senior and youth players.

Poche has shown a lot of positives, and I look forward to next season to see how he does with a transfer window to bring in some CM's...but the team should be showing SOME sign that they're understanding his system. We've shown it in some games, but for the past month we've looked clueless; playing the same ponderous, lost, toothless football we played after AVB lost his Bale crutch.

Like all of you, I want Poche to work out. I'm tired of the turn over, the constant "transitional year" excuse. This year has been better than expected because we had a cup final and some exciting wins over other top 4 teams...but is it too much to ask that our manager figure out what to do when teams sit back and double mark our leading goal scorers? Push players wide, bring Dembele and Lamela and Stambouli to the team, rest Chadli when he's playing horribly, put Townsend on the left... just don't trot out the same 11 that isn't working.

Well, we'll see what happens. Miraculous final run of games, winning top 4? Sure :D
COYS!
+3
^ Pretty much!
+2
Yep, that pretty much sums up what most Spurs fans think these days. I've definitely resigned myself to the fact that this season has ended exactly where we deserve to be. Not more, not less. I'm a bit baffled by some of the management decisions and team selections. I can only assume that a handful of players will leave this summer and at least a couple of new ones to come in. Then we'll have another preseason and another whole season to assess if Poch is capable of taking us up to the next level.
+1
What do you guys think about Simone Zaza? Sassuolo CEO is quoted at saying we have made an offer in the region of £13m for him. . Personally I don't know much about him, from what I've been reading he seems to be rated quite highly in Italy.
Never heard of him. Attacking player?
Sounds like he's going to Juve, unless this is old news.

http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/simone-zaza-rejects-tottenham-juventus-5362622
Yeah CF, I've read that Juve have first dibs but first team opportunities could be limited.
He broke into the Italian National team not long ago and was doing really well. He's scored some really nice solo goals but thats the extent of what i know
If we get him he would be the first Italian player ever to play for Spurs, right?
We can't really compare the Serie A to the PL. We've all seen how Lamela struggles. But at this point if we can get a player who plays for the Italian national team with not such an expensive price tag, why not.
As much as it was a terrible game against Villa, it was my first time to watch a match in White Hart* Lane. It was quite an awesome experience walking from the seven sister's station to the stadium and looking for black market tickets (50 pounds for behind the director's seat, season ticket holder). Although there are several people to blame on that match, Vlad was really the worst of the lot. I wasn't as disappointed as the rest of the fans beside me since I was still savoring my first match at WHL. I was probably the last non-staff to leave the stadium and waited at the parking lot for the players. I got autographs from Paulinho, Capoue, Rose, Chadli and HARRY KANE. It was an awful game of hide-and-seek with the security in the parking lot but it was worth it.

COYS!

"If Manchester United qualify for the Champions League as they look likely to, then for the past two seasons it will be the team that finished seventh the season before that broke into the top four. Neither United and Liverpool had to worry about Europa League commitments derailing their Premier League campaign."

Add to that the fact that both those teams' winning runs came in the second half of the season, when real fatigue occurs.

After this season in which Man United have, with a new team and poor players, got themselves into a fantastic chance for 2nd place and not far from a title race; I regret having Europa League (and its crazy travelling and match schedule) for the first time.

We probably would have won the League Cup this season if we hadn't had Fiorentina to virtually knacker our players out. As well as this, I think we would have been where United are now in the league.
I am confident even if we get Europa for next season, but I would be far more excited without Europa next year.

I'm a bit surprised at myself having written that. I'm normally a keen advocate of the Europa as I feel that we need to get into the finals of the Europa before we know we have the ability to get to the knockout phase of the Champions League and match the big teams toe to toe.
+1
I've been saying this for years dude. I couldn't agree more. The damn Europa costs us every single season. The only times Spurs made the top 4 was when Harry didn't have the europa to deal with the first time and then played kids in the europa the second time. Then look at our results in the league after a europa away leg. They are f*****g terrible and it's costs us at least one or two places on the table. I also hate the constant Sunday league games which are result of being the europa.
I could easily argue man utd has always been a second half of the season team under fergie so lack of euro commitments may be a poor excuse.

Additionally it took time and injuries to certain players to find the right system and starting xi. Maybe with more games we would have found this balance earlier in the season.

I could also argue our form is down to the return of carrick from injury. Both 6 game win streaks started right when he came back from a lengthy absense.

I think having the squad depth to play in Europe is key, and not having enough games to utilize the whole squad presents its own unique challenges.

+2
good thing we let him go...
