Fantastic article about Real Madrid game:

http://www.espn.co.uk/football/uefa-champions-league/2/blog/post/3231055/real-madrid-not-top-gear-yet-but-should-rise-to-champions-league-occasion-vs-tottenham
Right lads what are your formations for Real Madrid?
Very laboured first half, Son or Dele need to come deep and feed Kane. Big second half COYS!
If Son and Dele go any deeper, we might as well play in our own half because Bournemouth are drowning out Kane with 3 at the back; essentially 5 at the back cos their wb's are not attacking! We need our midfield players to make more forward runs to feed Alli and Son when Kane is taking the attention of the 3 CB's. But Dier has no vision and Winks doesn't have the muscle of Dembele to power through. Very frustrating but I'm keen to see how/if Poch is going fix this issue.

COYS!
Again it was no penetration down our right flank. It was all walking pace and backward passes.
In the end it was a good move by Poch, went 3 at the back and told the CBs and DIer to thread long passes to our forwards so it bypassed the midfield diamond that Bournemouth set up with.

A bit of a shaky win but I'm happy none the less
Match time! After the demonstration of anti-football by United I need to be entertained!

Our line up:

--------------------------Lloris-----------------------------
Trippier----------Alde----------_-Sanchez-------------Verty
-------------------Winks-------Dier------------------------
-Son---------------------Dele----------------------Eriksen-
-------------------------Azza------------------------------

Very excited to have Son and Dele back together in the line-up, I think if we get the early goal today It could be a rout and I fully expect Kane to get a hatrick!

COYS!
Ben Davies has scored more away goals (2) in the premier league than Arsenal (0) this season.
+1
So, we play Bournemouth on Saturday, then Real Madrid on Tuesday. Both are going to be very tiring games; it is essential that we kill of the Bournemouth game early to save stamina.

Wanyama and Dembele both expected to return for Bournemouth but I hope that Dembele is rested for Bournemouth, giving Winks a chance to start.

My team vs Bournemouth:

-----------------------Lloris---------------------------
-----Alde-------------Davinson----------------Verty---
-Trippier------------------Dier--------------------Davies-
------------------------Winks----------------------------
----------Dele-----------------------Eriksen-------------
------------------------Llorente--------------------------

It will be nice to have Aurier, Dembele, Kane and Son fully rested for the Real Madrid game. I think Llorente deserves a start (he's been training at Spurs over international duties) and Kane definitely deserves a rest.

My team vs Real Madrid:

----------------------------Lloris-----------------------------
-----------Alde-------------Sanchez-------------------Verty--
-Aurier------------------------Dier---------------------Davies-
-----------------------------Dembele-------------------------
--------------Eriksen-----------------------Son---------------
------------------------------Kane----------------------------

What do you reckon fellas?
I think Aurier needs a game before Real Madrid to help him settle in more.
Dembele must come on for 30 min or so to get him ready for RM.
Definitely a good idea to rest Kane vs Bournemouth. And yeah, unless Dele shows some better form on Saturday, he should be dropped vs RM.
Dele is banned for Real Madrid, which meant the choice between him and Son easy. I can see us playing counter attack against Real Madrid, trying to get the first goal and then Kane/Son/Eriksen just need to come up with a screamer and then we're 2-0 up.

I dunno about Aurier and Trips. Think how vital it could be Trippier delivering a pinpoint cross to Kane's head to get the winner at the Bernabeau. I think with three at the back, his defensive liabilities aren't so much of a concern. I'm still on the fence about our 2 RBs

I am so buzzing for this game.
Ah that's true, Dele is out.

Trippier won't be getting anywhere to do any crosses. He won't be doing anything but backpasses! And defensively, vs Bale or Ronaldo. It could be fun!
+1
Wishful thinking about Trippier even getting crosses in against Real Madrid; let alone a pinpoint assist for Kane. Agreed with Northstream; Trippier will have his work cut out for him considering they have the worlds best LB- Marcelo and probably Ronaldo in front of him.

That being said; I agree with your original line-ups. Although I don't think Poch should necessarily rest Kane completely. Give him 60mins against Bournemouth - no striker ever wants to miss playing time when they are in such great form.
+2
To be honest guys I watched the Huddersfield game again focusing on Trippier and you're right, he is very negative and doesn't stop anywhere near the amount of crosses he should.

+1
Great words from Moussa Sissoko, well worth a read:

He looks way more up for it than last season but he needs to continue to improve.
A bit more All Action No Plot:


Huddersfield 0-4 Spurs: Five Lilywhite Observations

1. Kane

Crumbs. Every man and his dog is chipping in with his tuppence worth on the blighter at the moment, and by and large here at AANP Towers we tend to scoot past his heroics and instead commit pen to parchment on the rights and wrongs of our midfield cogs.

But it is becoming increasingly difficult to dismiss his ware-peddling as simply business as usual. The chap is scoring just about every type of goal conceivable at present, from every angle and distance conceivable. Unnervingly, his second yesterday had a hint of the Gareth Bales about it. And he does it all while still somehow conveying the impression that he is not one of life’s natural footballers, if you get my drift. Fingers crossed the young bean never grows old. Or gets injured.

2. Winks

Moussa Sissoko presumably has his fans – primarily within the Sissoko household one would imagine – but I’m sure mine was not the only heart that skipped a joyous beat when I saw Harry Winks’ name on the teamsheet. Lots of good, honest man-love is directed towards that young egg, and while it was hardly the most taxing afternoon of his life, it was nevertheless good to see him look the part throughout.

To the credit of the entire troupe, the absence of Dembele has not been felt too keenly in recent weeks, but although just about irreplaceable, the nearest thing to him seems to be young Winks. Admittedly they are very much man and boy when it comes to comparing physiques, but the general mentality of both on receipt of the ball seems to be to make a forward beeline, as long as physics allows.

Which may sound far from rocket science, but compared to, for example, the dire first half against Swansea, when the default of just about every man in lilywhite was a swift pirouette and backward pass, and The Winks Approach – borrowing laudably from The Dembele Playbook – provides numerous steps in the right direction. Literally, as well as metaphorically, which always reinforces the thing, what?

3. Alli

Not for the first time this season, it was a decidedly rummy offering from the lad. I’m all for the chap assuming the form of a fiend in loosely human shape when it comes to scything his way through an opposing defence like a knife through butter, but so far this season he has mooched around like an indignant schoolboy.

There was one flash of brilliance, which culminated in him hitting the post. And one might point to his assists last week, and infer that his creative juices floweth perfectly well, but dash it, the chap is off colour if ever I saw the thing.

Frankly one of his assists last week was woeful – leathering the ball into the air and forcing a diving header from Kane, when a simple rolled pass would have done the necessaries – and yesterday brought no improvement. The chap just seemed to have a chip on his shoulder, was unable to influence the game in the manner of, say Eriksen or the wing-backs, and not for the first time plumbed a depth with a quite unnecessary dive. Not at our club, thanks very much.

4. Eriksen and the Ardiles-Era Goal

It does not seem so long ago that I sighed like a man with the weight of the world on his shoulders, and fretted over how Eriksen, for a man of his talent, ought really to be bossing games.

By golly, not any more. The chap absolutely runs the show these days, week after week. His first touch invariably takes his marker out of the game, he has the vision to spot a pass from a different postcode – not to mention the ability to deliver it – and on top of it, the chap simply never stops tearing up and down the turf.
Mildly ironic then, that what might have been The Best Goal Since Football Was Created, was demoted to the status of simply A Quite Marvellous Goal because Eriksen of all people did not quite deliver his line to perfection. The Davies goal was simply a thing of beauty. One-touch build-up so dizzying that I managed to keel over while sitting down watching, and finished with a generous dollop of élan by Davies, it truly felt like the appointment of Ossie Ardiles back in the mid-90s had finally borne fruit.

5. Sissoko and the Worst Goal Ever

From sublime to ridiculous. Having gone three up without exerting themselves terrifically, our heroes did the understandable, and hit the Snooze button in the second half. Rather a shame, I thought, because Huddersfield, while game for a fight, were marvellously naïve about things, racing up the pitch to salvage pride while leaving one of the planet’s hottest strikers to amuse himself as he pleased. As such, there were plenty more goals for the taking in the second 45.

Ultimately then, it fell to Sissoko. If the chap were to pour himself a glass of water I fancy he would make it look complicated, so when the moment came to tap in from a couple of yards, naturally he dragged unnecessary limbs, opposing defenders, stumbles, deflections and just about every other utterly needless element into proceedings.

I’m growing rather fond of the blighter, mind. Lots of effort in there, and one of these days the planets will align and he will turn in the best performance ever. But just as, against Dortmund a few weeks ago, Son scored the most Son-esque goal imaginable, yesterday Sissoko produced undoubtedly the most Sissoko-esque goal in history.

What a fantastic review North as always! You've got more poeticism that DML and thats saying a lot!
+1
Great work North!!!
It's all the work of Michael Lacquiere, guys.
Trippier with 2 assists and a good defensive performance. Again, I think we're too quick to dismiss Trippier now that Aurier has arrived.

Winks looked tidy, great to have competition for Dembele and co.

Sissoko with a much needed goal, he looks higher in confidence as every game goes by. Fair play to the gentleman, he's had a lot of slack.

Dele had a better game than most of the season, shame he ruined it with a dive.

Kane was just Kane. What a second goal, reminiscent of Bale! Our lad's now scored as many PL goals as Ronaldo in 123 appearances as Ronaldo did in 179! What a yid!

Despite Dier getting a lot of criticism from myself and others, I thought he had a fantastic game. His pressing is fantastic.

Davies is a great player. So reliable, day in and day out, and his crosses are approaching the same level as Kieran. We're very lucky to have Ben.

Overall, a great win. Even though the other teams at the top keep winning, we just have to stay close until we get Rose, Lamela and Wanyama back and until Son and Llorente hit form. COYS!!
+2
Nah, even against weak opposition Trippier still doesn't stop them from crossing into the box. KWP did more in that respect in the 10 minutes he got. In fact, I can see the danger of Aurier not getting to settle in the position against the weaker teams, before being expected to perform against the top teams. It was a very limited amount of defending needed to be done vs Huddersfield, and that's where Trippier's downfalls are less obvious. But they're still there!

Dier and Davies had great games. Our best two in addition to Kane.
+1
Was watching the game and saw Kyle walker Peters come on. And I'm like Dafuq did I just hear and see? There's another Kyle walker at spurs who also plays RB
+1
Yeah man, he's a very good player for his age. Expect big things from him
