I'm not going to bang on about our lack of fullback flair this time but again we were so narrow, playing through the middle. For much of the 1st half our quality overpowered United but we only got one goal to show for it. Kane has been nothing after he returned from injury and even Son has dropped in sharpness. That meant it was all up to Eriksen and Alli to create and score.In the end, it was too easy for Mourinho to come back against a team with limited finishing prowess and no threat on flanks. When Pochettino replaced Davies with Moura, one would have thought he should be bombing down the flanks. He was being shown the tactics board and received some great, long instructions. Not so - he joined in the overcrowded middle and was a complete waste of time. That was followed by the "game changer" Wanyama instead of Dembele. Lamela wasn't introduced until the 86th minute. Mind boggling.

Full backs have gone from being out strongest are to being our weakest. Definitely need some improvements there in the summer.
Erikson was great. Seems he has a bit of everything to be a top midfielder. Awereness, vision, pace, technical ability. Top player. Didn't think many others showed enough of their quality to help him out. I thought Son was wasteful, Ali was kinda quiet, Kane didn't get much service. Vertonghen was ok though imo.

As great a coach as pochettino is, he really needs a trophy under his belt or this squad will break apart. Winning is a quality in of itself, and he needs to start showing that he has the quality to lead his team over that finish line.

You guys have a great young team but I'd say it's missing that bit of leadership when things are not going as planned.

I hope you guys hold the squad together and reinforce for next season!
I like Spurs and want to see you guys do well. What do you need in order to get some silver?
And he wants to win the Champions League LOL

Clearly brought Kane back too early. He hasn't looked ready in any of the games this month.

North I may be starting to agree with what you said about Poch a while back. Great coach, but the mentality hasn't changed too much and the substitutions are often uninspired.

We needed this FA Cup so badly and yet we were worse after Poch's half time talk than before it. Absolutely f*****g gutted. At least I have my Guinness
+2
Poch never believed we were going to win the FA Cup. While Mourinho was talking up his team and that his selection needed to be 100%, Poch was making excuses ahead of the game.
+2
Absolutely gutted!

Completely agree with you North; he was making excuses ahead of the game. This was a manager's game and Mou's winning mentality won it.

Poch needed to play his best 11 and he didn't. Toby sitting on the bench is ridiculous, even if he leaving, play him while he's here! Should have played a back 3 and loaded the midfield. Even if the score turned out the same, at least I'd know the better team won.

Team tonight?

Vorm
Trippier Sanchez Vert Rose
Dier Dembele
Lamela Alli Eriksen
Kane
Good chance, it could be the team.

One month ago I would have given us a 99% chance of winning this game. With our lacklustre performances lately and Mourinho's experience of setting his team up (he's been at it lately with his focus on team selections), I'm afraid our chances may have been reduced to 49%.

Come on, go get them! COYS!
Lamela and Rose should have started.

We will miss you Wenger x

Slim chance that Dembele could stay one more year but the rumours that he'll leave for China this summer gets stronger.

Missed the match and cant find the full replay. Anyone able to summarise player performances for me? Please and thanks
+1
Lloris:

A couple of ropey catches, one that nearly cost us a goal and was a bit too keen to slow things down when we had a good counter attack on. Love the chap but he's been a bit out of form since we went out the CL.

Aurier:

Probably the most reckless player we've had since Chiriches. I don't see him as being a better defender than Trippier apart from his aerial prowess, and his passing is either backwards or shocking when he gets into a crossing position. Trippier has his faults but is undoubtedly the better full-back. However, hopefully the lad will do better after getting to know his team-mates and adjusting to the PL.

Aldeweireld: Put in a couple of fantastic tackles but didn't have much to do the entire game. I really think we should consider playing him against United but then maybe we could do with Sanchez pace against Sanchez. Not a decision I could make. Loved it that the fans chanted yiddo any time he made a tackle and did the Jan Jan Toby Toby chant!

Verty: Deserves his place in the PFA team of the year. If we keep Aldeweireld we will have undoubtedly the best CB pairing in Europe next season. Love this guy, and think he should be our captain if Hugo gets replaced between the sticks.

Davies: Had a poor game with some bad decisions. I think LB is a priority for the Summer Transfer market and I really hope that the rumours that Sessegnon is bound for spurs are true. Great servant but he's peaked imo.

Wanyama: Had a terrible first half and a better second half. Just hasn't been the same since his injury. Really hope this lad can get back to his best for next season as he was one of our best players last season.

Sissoko: s**t

Lucas: I would say our second best player after Eriksen. The lad is lightning quick and created some brilliant chances. Also his one touch football was brilliant. With a full pre-season, I can see him being one of the first names on the team-sheet next season.

Eriksen: Magnificent. This lad has upped his game hugely this season. I pray he stays at our club for next season and that we win a trophy for him because after Kane he is the player I worry about leaving the most.

Son: Had a poor game and couldn't get the better of Bruno in the first half. However, his persistance and skill in setting up Harry's goal was sublime. Really like this lad but confidence seems to be his biggest issue.

Kane: Was off the mark all game. Either recent criticism of him claiming the goal, or his recent ankle injury has affected him. Was unlucky to slip over at some crucial periods. Really need him at full flow vs United.

Subs: Lamela - Sometimes I think his one-footedness is a big weakness, as his passing is restricted. However, I think that he is going to be world class next season as he seems to have worked on his right-footed shots recently. Love the guys enthusiasm as well.
Dembele: Poch was saving him for Saturday otherwise he should have come on earlier. I hope to god the rumours of him going to China aren't true. Give us one more season Moose! We need to win something otherwise his career would have been a slight waste!
Llorente: n/a

Overall the central midfield duo killed our chances of winning this game. Sissoko passed the ball as soon as he got it and so no player was drawn and no space created. Wanyama looked seriously off the mark.

Not too worries about the league now unless Chelsea make a later surge. Just please get us to the FA Cup final boys!!

My team vs United:

----------------------------Vorm/Lloris-------------------------------------Trippier----------Alde/Sanchez---------Verty----------------------Rose--
-----------------------Dembele--Dier-------------------------------------
-Son------------------------Dele---------------------------------Eriksen--
----------------------------------Kane------------------------------------

COYS!!!

Thanks a lot bud!

I still puzzle over how Sissoko is getting games. Apparently Poch has been impressed by his attitude and training this season I read somewhere. I struggle to remember a single game where he has produced anything. I would be so up for taking a hit on him and moving him on for cheap in the summer.
He's trying to get some decent money for him in the summer I reckon
Pretty spot on in most of that. But for some reason your Aurier/Trippier view is stuck so far from the reality I see. While Trippier goes hiding instead of dealing with threats, Aurier will always go into battle, regardless of who the opposition is. While Aurier is capable of beating a man and being an attacking threat, Trippier won't challenge - it's 99% backpasses followed by a raised arm and shouting at team mates to do what he never dared. Aurier definitely needs more polishing but he has so much more potential to be great than Trippier will ever have. In that respect he's not unlike what Walker was earlier in his career.
Our biggest crisis though is on LB, where Davies has been our worst for several consecutive games and Rose presumably will be gone in the summer. Unfortunately, Sessegnon probably won't come to us - IF Fulham is promoted to the Premier League.
+1
Aurier's first season in the Premier League, with no Pre-season as he arrived on deadline day, coming off a season at PSG where he had been frozen out and barely played. Poch is the perfect manager to get the best out of him, like he's done with Rose and Walker.

"In that respect he's not unlike what Walker was earlier in his career."-perfectly summed up. With all the right credentials to be as good/better.

@9points9seconds It puzzles me how much hate Sissoko still seems to get for basically doing his job. Considering Dembeles fitness will always have a question mark, and Wanyama's form had waned this season in light of his injury problems; Sissoko has done exactly what Poch brought him in to do, hence why he gets the games he does. Poch isn't stupid, he never brought Sissoko on in games expecting him to turn it around, he was always played to be the safe midfielder; disciplined in his positioning and focusing on what he's on to do. Poch loves him for this reason, and by the same reasoning, why Pogba has been getting so much flack from Mourinho, being brought off at HT of games because of his lack of discipline in a defensive role.

Don't get me wrong, Sissoko may be an infuriating player, but no less infuriating to me than watching Trippier play. You say you struggle to remember a game where he had done anything of note, but he was never brought in to do that so it can't be used against him.
+1
@FayJay Fair enough point I guess. I disagree though. I've watched the guy blast the ball into touch, bundle his way down blind alleys, scuff the easiest of chances, things that on a few occasions have been the difference between points lost and gained.

I understand what your saying though. I think we just want different things from a central midfielder. Even a rotation option. Its not like we picked him up on the cheap (for the market at the time).
Dear oh dear. Well played Brighton, and hopefully Dele, Dier and Trippier are raring for Saturday. Because there is no doubt that Trips is the better full-back, despite his flaws.
+1
We don't have a single decent fullback anymore. Trippier and Davies still the worst.
+2
Aurier is a country mile worse than Trippier my friend. Davies has been better than Rose when Rose has played (his injury has been a massive blow to our season) but I agree, they're both mid-table full backs.

I think Walker-Peters should have had a few more outings and I hope we've got sessegnon wrapped up
+1
Except for that penalty, I thought Aurier was one of the better tonight.
+3
big game tonight!

Our team:

--------------------------------Lloris--------------------------------------
-Aurier----------------Aldeweireld-------Vertonghen----------------Davies-
--------------------------Sissoko----Wanyama-----------------------------
-Lucas---------------------------Eriksen------------------------------Son-
---------------------------------Kane--------------------------------------

Big game for Alde and Aurier. I'm predicting 4-1 Spurs, Kane Hatrick and Lucas! COYS![

Would be good if Kane finds his boots again but maybe a tad bit optimistic.
