What a hit Son!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I've been busy at all the wrong times the past couple weeks, but I'm finally back today! Let's kick some tail!

Harry Kane signed contract extension, per BBC.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/38170875

It's official: https://twitter.com/SpursOfficial/status/804286449185124353

Great 1st half from us. Shame we didn't go to half time being ahead. In the 2nd half I'm sure our trip to Monaco started taking a toll. Eriksen had his best game in a while and the goal was a stunner. Dembele lost more possession than any other player on the pitch. I don't know if that's ever happened before. Unfortunately, one of those times lead to the break for Moses' goal, where Son didn't track back either. Poor goal to concede but overall we had a pretty decent game. I would say though, that when the momentum swung Chelsea's way we had too little to respond with.

What do you think of Harry Repknapp's comments ? The comments are in the Chelsea page
+1
Redknapp says so much that we rarely take notice, however it's probably some truth to what he said re Chelsea players vs Spurs players. Our first-XI back-four I certainly wouldn't swap for anyone elses. Lloris as sweeper keeper the same. Wanyama, Dier and Dembele on form is the same. I guess most teams would like to get hold of an in-form Hazard, though when he isn't and gets dealt with he's not much more than a diving whimp. So personality wise I'd happily stay clear of him, Willian and Costa. The only Chelsea player I'd grab, no questions asked, would be ex-Barca man Pedro.

The Guardian's take on our season so far and our UCL exit:

https://www.theguardian.com/football/blog/2016/nov/23/why-tottenham-failed-champions-league
What's Pochettino's solution of LB/LWB against Chelsea with both Rose and Davies out?
The most obvious would be to move Vertonghen out wide and keep Wimmer in his place, however Wimmer has not been too flash this season. Trippier is an alternative as LB but no more exciting than keeping Wimmer in the side. He could also gamble big by giving Walker-Peters or N'koudou the chance of adding some more flair on that flank.
Wimmer has been getting tons of unwarranted criticism. Yes he had a bad game against Monaco, but the whole team did. This is a guy who came into the team in his first season in the Prem as a 22 year old and was arguably more solid (conceded fewer goals) than Vertonghen!!

I think we have to have Dier alongside Wimmer with Verty at LB. With Dembele and Wanyama in front, we don't have any excuses.
+1
Because Wimmer impressed so much last season when he was called upon, people have high expectations. Though it seems like Toby lifted any of the defenders playing next to him. We need him back!

If Pochettino choose to go 3 at the back, he could line up like this:

Lloris
Dier Wimmer Vertonghen
Walker Wanyama Dembele N'Koudou
Son Kane Eriksen/(Dele)

Probably the weakest this team has been and facing arguably the most inform team of the league.

Loris
Walker Vert Wimmer Trippier
Dier Wanyama
Dembele Dele
Kane

+1
Throw in Eriksen there too, so that we at least start with eleven. Lol

But yeah, it's not the best time for us to go to the Bridge. Hopefully, Walker can keep Hazard in his pocket again.
+1
Oops haha, yes Erikson too. Walker has been on his Hazard game but I'm not too sure if it will be his job this time? I don't see him much on the wings with Conte

The F2 freestylers ft. Mauricio Pochettino, assessing how close to being 'Pro' they are:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vRtDxNpLaFc

I've gotta say, holy crap Mauricio has awesome technique. I knew he was a pretty good CB in his day, but dayum! I wonder if Alderweireld's technique is this good too when he's in a relaxing atmosphere like that. For a CB he's got amazing technique to hit the ball, but I'm not certain he can hit 'em like Poch.
+3
This video is an absolute must-see! Great post Jeroen :)
+1
What a manager. Even those, many other managers would see these two as a waste of their time and day. He gave them pointers and really cared, no wounder Spurs turned it around with him around.

As for his football. WTFFFFFFFFFFF???????????? For a former CB, his pass, touch, control, free-kicks, unreal stuff. I bet you he beats most of his Spurs players when it comes to control and technique on the ball, honestly most managers past 40 wouldn't be able to pull this off.
+1
Moe, this was during Intl break. Poch was just bored. :P
+1
As a frenchman, that makes me sad to watch Lloris performing outstandingly for nothing. That Champions League group draw was easy, with no top team and yet Tottenham probably won't make it through anyway.

Pochettino can be blamed, but that doesn't mean the players are not to blame either. Hopefully the team will do well in Europa League.

That's depressing.
"probably wont make it through" - We can't make it through. Best we can do now is not lose against CSKA and go to the Europa.

Re- Lloris: it wasn't for nothing as it showed the world once again just how good he is. We must keep him at all costs, same with Kane.
Lloris would always want to do well, in particular on French soil.

Hopefully, we'll have a strong run in the Europa League.
Good luck in the knockouts, Marmitton. Monaco have been as impressive as we have been poor in the groups.
What can we say? Poch's first season in the Champions league aside, he's made exactly the same mistakes as last season with the Europa. Resting players in a vital must win European game. Where is the To Dare is To Do?!

This was a pathetic campaign, and the players only have themselves to blame. Lloris deserves a fricking medal for the way he has performed in Europe for us, the team has massively let him down.

You can blame bad luck with injuries to key players, but at the same time you can't. Poch needed to be brave, the team needed to be brave, core players who should be stepping up has let us down. Dier is nothing in comparison to Toby and together with Wimmer have no chemistry or defensive solidity. Eriksen hasn't stepped up at all, if anything he's stepped down and is rapidly falling down the stairs. He's just getting more and more laboured and dropping him/resting him for half a game here and there is not helping. Alli is doing his best to remind everyone that he is still only 20years old and one season of Premier league experience, to all of a sudden become a star is overly ambitous, but he has only himself to blame as he's talented enough to be worldclass but he isn't reaching those heights this season so far.

We need Toby's return, we need Lamela, we need good cameos from Sissoko and Nkoudou, our team needs a lift. Let's try focus on Chelsea and start from there.

COYS!
+5
Pochettino made a mess of this campaign, with narrow formations and odd rotations of key players. I've found it barely watchable and I've never got the obsession about top-4 and Champions League qualification, ahead of domestic cup trophies.
Obviously, most of the players let themselves down in this campaign too.
+2
We really are missing Lamela at the moment. We're missing his pressing high up the pitch and we're missing his quick touch and layoffs outside the box.

We need to realize that every player can be dropped. And I would like to see Eriksen dropped for Lamela.
