he knows :p

My team for Leicester:

----------------------Lloris----------------------------
-Walker--------Chiriches--------Verty-------------Rose--
--------------Dembele---------Bentaleb------------------
-Lamela-----------------Eriksen------------------Chadli
------------------------Kane---------------------------

This is a formation I am very keen to see. I think Rose and Dembele need to get back into the team as their quality is evident. Chiriches has improved a lot in his last few games, and Fazio is an accident waiting to happen. If it is a success against Leicester, having Rose, Dembele and Chiriches could be vital against the pace of United and Chelsea.

COYS! If anyone finds a replay of todays match, please send the link.

On another note, don't know if this has been mentioned, but its a pleasure to see the number of fans on this amazing forum hit 4000. The Future's Bright, The Future's Lilywhite!
+1
I get the feeling Davies is starting to make LB his own. I would also like to see dembele start, on a good day he is incredible, shame His good days don't come around very often. I would still like to see soldado in the team but just don't see where he fits in the team especially as lamela had his best game!
Considering how Poch rotates from 1 match to another, I do expect a few changes.
A united fan on their forum: 'a solid point away from home' - against Villa, when they played against 10 men for 30 minutes; United fans never fail to disappoint.
+5
Their defense is a mess but maybe they can do what Liverpool did last season.
Spent bundles of money on players they didn't need and didn't focus on their defence at all
Well! TBF to them, they were poor and the point(in the end) was a point gained, despite circumstances appearing to the contrary.

Anyways, I hope to find such delusional positives after we win 6 in a row too. :P
Stambouli's solid.
+3
I would choose mason instead still
+3
Didn't get to see the first half,how bad was his injury??
+1
Rogue, it looks like an injury that will keep him out for the festive period atleast IMO.
+1
Mason may be out for a while but luckily we're pretty well healed in his position. What we need is another centre back and preferably already now in January.
Yes a center back is vital. Fazio looked slow and weak today; he is a liability at the moment.
I would love us to sign a defender that already has PL experience.
+1
What about Vlaar?
A player like vlaar would be perfect!
Vlaar is on his way to MU.
Lamela you f*****g beauty! where have you been!?COYS!!!
+10
He's getting there. I'm sure we've got more to come from him.
Today he seemed to realize he can go outside as well as in. The two or three times he went outside to cross put the doubt in his defenders mind, and sure enough; goal. A real beauty, as well.
+1
Kane!!! COYS!!!
+5
http://tinychat.com/tottenhamway

COYS!
+1
So MoPo sticks with the Mason - Bentaleb combo. I've yet to see one game where they work as a 2, they both scamp around after the ball but I don't see any presence there. Against the lower level teams we should be more adventurous and have more creative options, they are going to try and stop us and little else, so I don't see the need for this much caution, particularly when at home.

He also drops Soldado the game after scoring again.
Hope we can create enough and don't leave it too late again. COYS.
+1
What's with the negativity mate. I think they fit in with Poch's style of play more, that's why they get played. They're young and energetic and help press high up the pitch. Sure they aren't that creative but that's why we have Chadli, Eriksen and Lamela.
+3
@Andy: watch the Everton game, they did well.
+2
Andy, what are our creative options in the mid? Whether due to lack of quality or options, I don't think we have a more positive central midfield combination right now than those two.
I think Soldado has been benched because we are down to only 2 strikers presently.
If needed, I do hope that we make the tactical change early in the 2nd. COYS :)
+1
Not negativity, just my views on our team. They have looked a bit lost together in recent times. Only saw part of Everton game, but despite people saying we played great we only had 39% possession at home that game, which can point to the midfield not controlling the game particularly well.

You really don't think we have better creative options in the middle?
Stombouli is a better passer than both players and Dembelé has a far greater presence than them. (and both are also great tacklers / interceptors)
At home to a bottom 3 team he could do something like :
------GK------
-----Back 4-----
--Dembele--Eriksen--
Lennon--Kane--Chadli
-----Soldado----

Just a thought. No need for such caution is all. Eriksen gets on the ball a lot more playing further back. He's like a soft -tackling modric, perfectly adequate against a team that will sit back.

We should win games like this regardless of who he picks though.
+1
Dembele doesn't track well, despite being a big presence. And he isn't a good enough passer to play these games IMO.
Stambouli's passing range? I have honestly not seen a lot of it yet but I guess you can make a case for him(and he is on, wish it was for bentaleb instead of mason).
I think Mason has been off in recent weeks, but Bentaleb has been very good. He covers, tracks back, breaks up play decently, recycles possession, looks for forward passes and is always very composed.
Got your wish for more so called presence with stambouli coming on for mason. He was very quiet tad disappointing tbh. But it's clear as day that mason and bentaleb are our best midfield partnership atm.
Thornby, I am not sure you can judge Stambouli on this performance. Bentaleb was so dodgy tonight that if Mason weren't injured, he would have been subbed by the hour. Mason is the most unique centre-midfielder we have right now. Closest thing to a deep lying playmaker.
+1
Yeah I'm not judging him on that performance. I would love to see him get a run and hopefully with bentaleb in the African nations and masons injury he will get more of a look in.
Lloris
Walker Fazio Vertonghen Davies
Bentaleb Mason
Lamela Eriksen Chadli
Kane

Subs: Vorm, Chiriches, Rose, Dembele, Stambouli, Townsend, Soldado.
+1
So assuming Eriksen will play centrally and we'll be so much better off for it.
+2
Lamela needs to have a good performance today!
+2
Looks like a good side. Glad to see consistency in the selection. The more games these guys play together the better we'll get.
That line-up wasn't far off the mark. If we had been a bit more clinical we would have won that game fairly comfortable.
So we are back into one of those games where the team won't attack us and leave us frustrated I feel.
We need to start taking advantage of these games because there's been times this season where we've had home games that we should be winning but have slipped,so hopefully we take advantage today they will let us hold the Ball as usual and hopefully we can break them down and not be countered against,they have pace on the break with ings and I hope we can contain him,I think it will be a game for vertonghen and Vlad but I feel Poch will play fazio even know they have no height in there,COYS!!
+1
Wouldn't mind Stambo starting today, he put a good defensive shift in against Newcastle and distributed the ball quickly to our forward players.
+1
Yeah wouldn't have minded him, but I'm sure he'll get his chance eventually.
