COYS!!!!
Pretty poor performance but got the 3 points. Into 3rd!
That was a fun, open game as a Barça fan.

Unfortunate to have Vertonghen & Dembélé injured, Jan could've made the defense much better.
+1
We struggled in the 1st half but fought bravely in the second half. Lamela and Kane stood out for us. Alderweireld and Winks also grew into the game.
If Lloris hadn't had the rush of blood to his head in the opening 90 seconds I think we could have come away with draw. Barca were classy though. I have followed them closely, as my second team, since the early 90s. In those days I was able to watch every single of their games. Like with Spurs, it's the attractive football that has pulled me in. Some of their stuff in yesterday's game was just magnificent to watch, and then in particular Messi. His first goal was just a thing of beauty. It looks like something that's been drilled over and over again at the training ground. He plays it wide to Alba then sprints in to the box. Alba cuts back with the perfect angle to where he's about to appear and both Coutinho and Suarez leaves it. Football masterclass.
+2
Needed that 3 points.. only 5 points off the top and 3 behind Chelsea! And the thing is we haven't even got going yet. COYS

First half was pretty bad from us. Trippier and Dier (especially Dier) gave the ball away so many times I lost count. At this stage I wouldn't trust Dier to play against Barca but we don't have much choice because of Dembele's injury. Has anyone noticed how he's huge but Moura wins more bloody headers than him. Trippier was poor, as was Moura first half, but at least they created the first goal!

My team vs Barca:

--------------------------------Gazza---------------------------------------
-Trippier-----------Sanchez----------------Toby----------------------Rose-
----------------------Dembele-----------Dier--------------------------------
-Lamela---------------------------------------------------------------Son---
--------------------Kane---------------Moura---------------------------------

If we don't concede early, this game will really suit us. Finally a game where we can be compact and press Barca until we can break on them in force.

I initially wanted to use Dier and Winks and bring on Moose when and where he was needed but I think we need the most experienced pivot for this game, and that is obviously Dembele and Dier. Hopefully Dier steps up.

I'm predicting a 3-1 and I'm putting 20 quid on it!
+1
Dier, Trippier, Wanyama, Son were all sloppy with their passes. Barcelona will punish that. Huddersfield didn't.
+1
Yes, Huddersfield weren't capable of punishing us but this Barca team, not at its best at present, will likely be clinical. It could be ugly. Fingers crossed it won't!
+1
Jesus, what a wild second half. Some terrible penalty taking from Watford. Credit to Son, who changed the game when he came on, even if he didn't end up on the scoreline.
Capoue's pen was bad, but Gazanniga's second save deserves some credit seeing as its an identical pen to Alli's which beat Gomes.. twice.
I only watched the shoot-out live and some highlights. We should keep fighting in this cup! Good to see Llorente stepping up for the penalty, as the opportunities coming his way will remain very limited.
I don't even know what to think about this match anymore
Jesus....

Aurier and Winks have been fantastic.

Lamela and Davies terrible.

This is a bad period indeed
That pass from Lamela to Dele to draw the penalty was sublime, though.
(I thought he had been pretty decent all match, though)
Lamela compared to his previous form has been bad, his first touch letting him down all game.

Sanchez is another who's been piss poor. But very very impressed with Aurier and Winks.
I thought Winks hasn't been great. Taking too long on the ball and hasn't been playing into positive positions, mostly just backwards
Again it's relative. After such a long lay off I think he had a wicked game!
I'm definitely glad to have him back, and expect him to continue being awesome. Having Sissoko and Wanyama around him for most of the game definitely also contributed to his inability to go forward.
Completely agree mate
PaddySpurs4Life this is the game where Kane definitely has appeared better, stronger and more confident. From the start we could tell what the gameplan was, Trippier was playing up high and whipping early crosses in with Kane in and around the box. It didn't come for him but he won the freekick which won the Pen which set him up to end his drought. He started to fizzle in the second half, and there was one point when Dier had the ball in the opposition half, and he had Eriksen Son and Kane in front of him, instead he went to turn backwards and lost the ball which set Brighton off on a counter attack which they almost scored from. I had nightmares of the disgusting way we gave the game away to Inter. Anyways, Poch made the right subs with the mindset to kill the game off with a second goal. Alli's return had restored the confidence in our team and we played some fluid football, with Eriksen interchanging 1-2s with Lamela in tight spaces had renewed my confidence in the team again. Great play for the second goal and on we go, Kane starts popping shots off for fun again and this is a great set up now for the upcoming games.

The blip at the end though was unforgivable; the whole team switched off and Rose couldn't stay on his feet and flopped in panic and the shot left Gazanniga, who otherwise had a very good game considering the heavy rain conditions, rooted on the spot. Kane can finally now kick on with some renewed confidence, but the team mentality still needs to sharpen up if we are to actually win games against the top teams. (Most of this anger may just be due to the fact that I have Vertonghen in my fantasy league, and this week I'm doing poorly because no-one has been getting cleansheets!).
I'll just add that Trippier again was absolutely appalling, while Dier had something like 95 passes and only about six of them were misplaced.

Gazzaniga was a forced replacement, as Vorm picked up an injury, though we're many who thinks he should be our 2nd choice now. In particular when we meet Watford in the League Cup, Gazzaniga should play against their physical forwards. In the League Cup I'm guessing we'll finally see Kane have a breather on the bench and think about things to come.
Agree with everything you say FayJay.

North, I don't think Dier had a great game, even though I haven't criticised him in ages as he's upped his energy recently. It doesn't matter having a 95% pass rate if you give the ball away stupidly which 90% of the time would have ended in it being 1-1!

A fit Wanyama is definitely superior.

Trippier didn't have a great game, and like I said before Aurier deserved a start after his performance against Inter. If Serge has a good game tonight, then he has to start on the weekend.

Funny how those who rate Trippier don't like Dier. Imo Wanyama has no chance to push Dier out of the team.
Have you forgotten his first season with us?
only 4 points behind last year's champions in the league and they just lost at home in the CL. Things aren't too bad, I just hope they get better quick..
Let's hope for a quick turn-around. I heard Lamela said that the players are still positive. I hope that's the case because the moment they lose faith in the Poch project it will be very obvious. And then there will only be one solution.

Kane still looks like a shadow of himself. Both Poch and the players try to brush that away but at the moment he's just a passenger. Against Liverpool he had less touches in 90 min than Lamela had in the 30 min he was on. Lamela, Son and Moura will have to lift the team. Eriksen should be ok and Dele hopefully won't be too far away. In Milan Aurier and Moura, when he came on, were our brightest.
Agreed. What's your starting 11 vs Brighton?

I would say Aurier definitely deserves to start but Trippier was left behind specifically for this game. I also think Kane needs to be dropped and Wanyama put in for Dembele and Winks in for Dier.

---------------------------Gazzaniga-------------------------------
-Trippier---------Toby-------------------Jan------------------Rose-
--------------------Winks-----Wanyama----------------------------
-Lamela------------------Eriksen-----------------------------Son--
---------------------------Lucas------------------------------------
Moura doesnt have a good enough first touch in order to play as a ST. He's better running through teams from deep, so switch him with Son, who has a bit more experience covering for Kane from last season.
We have to remember how far we've come lads. It wasn't long ago we were playing god-knows-who in Europa and scraping by (while managing 5th in the league while getting battered by every big team).

This is the worst patch we've had in a while, but we'll get through it.

Positives from tonight:

Kane looked better, more confident and stronger. Aurier had a fantastic game and deserves a start vs Brighton. Moura looked like Maradona when he came on. Such a menace.

Onwards and upwards lads. COYS!
+1
I'm not sure about the looking 'better, more confident and stronger' if that were true he would have scored his only chance of the game; or at least have taken a shot! Physical fatigue may be a myth, but mentally Kane is not up to scratch when he can go near enough a full game without taking a pop at goal.

We should have killed the game off; when Poch started making his substitutions with taking off Son, my heart sank. I knew exactly what was going to happen once he decided to put on players to hold out for the 1-0 and take off all our offensive players, with Kane coming off last. Poch gave them a direct route back into the game by holding out a 1-0 advantage.

We were sitting ducks with our slow passing, and the wonder goal aside, the resulting scoreline was predictable even at 80minutes. What's worse is that we conceded yet ANOTHER set piece goal.
True, but I don't think we can put it down to Poch in this game. First half was littered with individual mistakes from Dier, Dembele, Davies, Sanchez and Vertonghen that should have given inter at least 2 goals had they been half decent in their passing.

Second half, we improved massively. We pressed as a unit rather than individually and our passing was more accurate.

Moura was an absolute menace when brought on and should have had 2 goals.

What lost us the game was Moura completely switching off, and Dier tiring and losing his all his defensive nous.

And with regards to Kane, his hold up play, passing and first touch was far better than we saw against Watford, Liverpool and half or United game. In that respect he was better but yeah he did squander a golden chance after a beautiful pass from Eriksen.

p.s Eriksen has also had a poor start to the campaign in my opinion..

Still disagree about Kane. Important statistic: Kane did not take a SINGLE SHOT at goal. It is pointless being in the team purely just to link up play. He is not spending enough time in the box and he is the teams only out and out striker. What are our creative players like Lamela and Eriksen to do with the ball if Kane is standing behind them on the halfway line? We need him in the box in order to bring out the best of the players behind/around him. Improved touch/accurate passing does not equate to Kane being 'better, more confident and stronger' - it just means he wasn't trash.

You cannot blame the winning goal on Lucas Moura, considering they scored from a setpiece! Poch brought on Rose for Kane for goodness sake to try hold on to the 1-0 lead.

We were controlling the game after we were luckily 1-0 up and were much better for it, even looking like we were going to get a second to wrap it up. But Poch panicked, probably from thinking back to the way we threw away the 2-0 lead against a much better Juventus last season that he decides to throw on Winks /Moura / Rose, changing our team dynamics who ultimately allowed Inter to attack for the rest of the game; and get their rewards.

All the talk early season about being 'brave' was not apparent in this game.
This is atrocious. Liverpool was the worst we've played in years and now we follow it up with such a nervous first half against Inter! COYS! Poch needs to prove why he's a manager and not a coach.
They looked better in the second half. Terrible how they threw it all away at the end.
+1
"Poch needs to prove why he's a manager and not a coach." - not helping his case with his media rants as well. Pressure's getting to him.
