Nkoudou is a boss

Good win

COME ON YOU SPURS

Great article on Dembele and his importance
Team news: Dembele, Dier, Rose, Sissoko and Kane out for Tuesday night CL match.

Starting line-up picks itself. Trying to figure out what are bench is likely to look like.

Lloris
Walker Toby Vert Davies
Wanyama Alli
Lamela Eriksen Son
Janssen

Subs: Vorm, CCV, Wimmer, Trippier, Nkoudou, Winks, Carroll/Onomah?
+2
After 6 games we are yet to concede a goal from open play.
+2
That will change after we play Man City...
+1
Or does it count as open play when the goal wasn't scored directly from the free kick?

Fay-Jay, we're going to do everyone a favour and beat City!
+1
Oh we'll win for sure, but it won't be a cleansheet. Janssen to win over the crowd instantaneously with a hat-trick.
+1
In other news, tough on Mason getting hammered 5-1 on his debut for Hull.
+1
Must be Mason's fault then? :P
+1
Wasn't my implication at all, just feel sorry for the lad as we prepare for a testing away Champions League game whilst he has to suffer at home mulling over the hammering he received on his debut.
+1
I don't think Mason would be feeling too sorry for himself tbh. Scored a cracking goal in the cup. Tough game against Pool. Par for the course at Hull.

I think deep down he already knew that his time may be coming to an end. In his own words, 'playing for Spurs was a dream come true'.
Two clear penalties on Alli and Son no given. Would've been much more comfortable if the ref called one of them properly.

Also, Sissoko was crap again. Even Nkoudu looked more dangerous.
"Even Nkoudou looked more dangerous" - is he not supposed to be? They are 2 different players, and I've been waiting for Nkoudou's chance to show what he can do. He looked an exciting player but obviously unproven.

Anyways, with the amount of games today, and ours being an unspectacular 1-2, Match of the day will most likely be showing us towards the end which means no decent analysis. Would be grateful for a quick review of the game from those who managed to watch it.

Another 3 points in the bag, we need to keep grinding out these results.

The Good:

1st half we were quick off the blocks. Put boro under intense pressure.
Son by far our best attacker(although did lose the ball often, as is expected from a player who is very direct).
We should have scored more. As SS said, we should have had a couple of pens.
Janssen's hold-up was pretty good at the start(key reason why we scored the opener). Encouraging to see him using his physicality without fouling anyone. :P
He did seem desperate to score(body-language when he didn't get the ball and snatched when very rarely he did) and tbf to him got in good positions(esp 1st half) and pretty much got ignored every single time.

The bad:

Alli and Sissoko weren't that good.
Alli missed a sitter(too casual imo).
Sissoko's end product was pretty poor(got worse as the game wore on).

2nd half was very average from us. It had shades of last season's 2-2 draw with Stoke. Their subs making an impact while we continued to be very passive in our play.

Conceded from a set-piece which shouldn't have been given. Walker was fouled and he ended up holding on to the ball. Sissoko got outjumped by Gibson for the goal.

Good subs choices by Poch imo. Could have made changes without waiting for what looked a very likely goal from Boro.

Lamela hit or miss in possession but definitely had more of an impact than Sissoko was having.

Winks(didn't look out of place) got around 10 mins while
Nkoudou came on for stoppage time. Had a good direct run but nothing to judge him either way yet.

All in all, nice to have the 3 pts but I am not buying the good teams win even when they aren't at their best argument for this game. We should have most certainly finished the job ruthlessly, instead of getting sloppy and relying on Boro's lack of composure in final 3rd.

Alli needs to be dropped for the big one on Tuesday(assuming Dembele and Dier recover) while Son's well and truly earned his spot.
+2
s**t ref
Sissoko was disappointing, Eriksen still looks a bit sluggish, and Jannsen although can hold up play well doesn't seem to know where the net is.

Entertainingly dominated the game from start to finish but still Spurs failed to put the game to bed. Instead a late set piece brings life to a once defeated team and fear of dropping points was very much present.

Spurs looked good, still unbeaten and moved up the table all without Dembele on the pitch. Things are looking bright


+1
im curious what do you guys expect of sissokho or what would he need to show to be a good signing? he wasnt that good last year at newcastle and bar the final 2-3 games at the euros, he wasnt a regular for france.
+1
Thanks Suraj for the summary.

"I am not buying the good teams win even when they aren't at their best argument for this game. " - was this in reference to something I said? Because all I said was that we need to grind out these results, i.e. taking 3 points whatever the cost, not that we are getting good team wins without being at our best.

We didn't lose the game and Poch has a lot to learn from this once again. Our team will only continue to grow under Poch.
+1
Excellent 1st half but we should have wrapped it up already then. Alli should have had a penalty and he also wasted a clear chance, that he really should have squared to Janssen who'd been sure to score. But Alli started the game well. Wanyama was a bit dodgy early on but he grew into the game. Davies had some really poor passes (how we miss Rose!) and again Lloris' distribution isn't the greatest.
We could easily have wasted it all in the 2nd half and again Pochettino makes the obvious changes a bit too late. Sissoko still a mile away from what Lamela offers. I can only assume that Lamela was spared for the Champions League and therefore didn't start. While Eriksen and Sissoko needs to keep playing to grow into having a greater impact. #Jandado works hard but still not on the scoresheet...
+1
FayJay, yes it was in response(more like gave me a chance to make that point :D), although more of an observation in general.
Everyone seems to say winning when not playing well is a sign of a good team. I am just playing devil's advocate with that view. I think sooner rather than later our inability to kill off teams will hinder us going forward.
As North said, we should have wrapped it up pretty early.

SIF, his cameo in the CL was good imo. I don't expect Sissoko to be value for money but what I expect is for him to get the basics right. Make no errors, work hard off the ball, use his physicality to his advantage. Not expecting world-beating performances but an adequate performance when he plays for a 1st team player and isn't a liability on the pitch.


On a side-note, I got 2 free-kicks from similar positions mixed up. The goal we conceded from was a different free-kick which may have been a foul.(albeit a soft one)
+1
It is only a hindrance if you take nothing away from the game and continue to try grinding out results. The whole point of these types of 3 points is that first and foremost you got the points needed, but on top of that you also learn a lot about what your team needs to work on.

Would you be happier that we lost the game in order to prove your theory? Look at Chelsea, they have been poor defensively and leaking in minimum 2 goals a game, Conte has openly said that his defence is a problem and needs to be worked on. Similarly Poch has raised the issue that we need to be more in control and finish games off. Now which situation would rather Spurs be in? 2nd in the table atm or where Chelsea are?

We are once again flying under the radar against all the big teams and no-one has implied that we are title contenders playing the way that we are playing. Everyone, including Poch, understands that our team needs to improve. But we are improving from a very good starting position having not lost any of opening games so far and having the best start to a season in decades.
+1
Why would I be happy with losing? My point was crediting for grinding results sometimes papers over the cracks. Ofcourse I would rather us have this kind of start over last year's. That doesn't mean all is going as swimmingly well as the table suggests IMO.

Using the same Chelsea example, they just about got over the line against West Ham and Watford. for all their dominance in attack, they were poor defensively, which eventually caught up with them in the last few games, something we need to avoid.

Ultimately, we all want the same thing, for the team to improve its performances and keep the results coming in. Only difference is how we sum up the present performance.
What the hell happened to Son over the summer? He's on fire!!!
Hey Super! He has always been good, he just needed time to blend in and be given the opportunity. Side note, how are you watching the match? I can not find it anywhere.
+1
To be honest, I was a bit worried about him considering all the rumours flying around summer, and the disappointing result of the South Korean team at the Olympics. But once he said that he wanted to come back to Spurs in order to get back into the team you just knew that he's got all the right attributes to succeed at Spurs. Now that he is banging in the goals as well our team looks almost complete. We have been waiting for other players to step up, and with Kane getting injured, the timing could not be better.

Such is the strength in depth again that Lamela has been playing second fiddle. Bad news for my Fantasy league, I might have to make a change.....
+1
I think Son just got fitter(had lost yard of pace after injury imo). His decision-making has definitely improved too. Doesn't muck around trying to delay his shots too much anymore.
+1
And Pochettino said earlier that Son wanted to leave and go back to Germany again.
Team today:

Hugo Lloris, Toby Alderweireld, Ben Davies,Jan Vertonghen, Kyle Walker, Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen, Moussa Sissoko, Son Heung-Min, Victor Wanyama, Vincent Janssen

Substitutes: Michel Vorm, Cameron Carter-Vickers, Kieran Trippier, Kevin Wimmer, Georges-Kévin Nkoudou, Erik Lamela, Harry Winks.

Poch has gone for Alli over Lamela, don't quite agree but hey ho.

COYS!
+1
Lamela was rested for CL, I believe.
+1
I predict in a stoned clairvoyant manner the team for tomorrow.

----------------Lloris--------------------
Walker---Alde-----Vert------Davies
------------Wanyama---Sissoko-----
Lamela----------Eriksen----------Son
-------------------Janssen--------------

Bloody decent depth. kick off in 10 hours, predicting a convincing win. COYS!!!!!!!!!!
+1
In a not quite drunk clairvoyant fog I think you're right, except perhaps Dembele will be in there too.
+1


Alli for Lamela and possibly Dembele for Sissoko. Rest same as above imo. Though, I would be happier to see the above team than the one I expect.
