Great article:

Love Lamela's expression:

Most impressive player on US tour?

I am split between 2 lol.
I thought Capoue did a very underrated job in his CDM role, covering for the defender that moves forward. It was intelligent play and read the game well.

As far as who was the best... damn. That's a tough one. All of those had good moments and bad. Holtby's pressing was amazing, but he gave the ball away too much. Lamela was brilliant at times, and too selfish at other points. Veljkovic had good decent games, but kept having moments where he kept giving the ball away in dangerous areas.

So, in all those, despite the flashiness of Lamela, I'd say that the best player was Mason. His defensive positioning surprised me, and his passing range from deep was actually much better than Carroll's.

Edit: Stupid jumpy messages.

I don't see how Soldado and Lennon haven't got mentioned (and everyone knows how lowly I've rated Lennon in the past)
This is in the comments of the highlights but thought I would post it front and center here

Full match! Im just getting into the first half
I wouldn't bother mate haha
Yeah. Lol. First half was okay, but the second... save yourself 45 mins :P
I fell asleep during the match,and I never do that
Poor Capoue lol
Vertonghen on Belgium Radio:

“It goes without saying that I would like to stay at Tottenham.

“I still had a four-year contract but I see that they have offered me a new five-year contract as a great sign of confidence.”
It is important to have stability in the CB area with some good players. Dawson is the one likely to go, so we've got to ensure we've got a good CB. Vert had a poor year last time, but that was mainly because he started throwing tantrums at being asked to play LB. He knows there are two LBs now, and he'll only be a CB. Hopefully, his attitude (and as a result his performance) improves.
Another great deal if he accepts. Hopefully, a better season for him. Still our best centre back by a mile for me.
Happy about this, Stable management should bring the best out of Jan in a system he should thrive in. Him and Vlad as a CB pairing intrigues me.

What do we think about Schneiderlin? I've been a huge fan for a long time, but always assumed his physicality would prevent him from taking the next step up. However, his last season proved me wrong. I would sell Sandro and buy Morgan personally. Thoughts?
+1
Massively Under-rated IMO. Big fan of his ever since Southampton's first season back but 27m is a lot especially when we need to strengthen the defence first.
Yeah I'm all for signing him up! not for 27m though. I think Southampton's valuation is absolutely ridiculous! But I think he'd be a huge signing for us if we could get that price down :)
Thing is, Southampton have been savaged already they have built up a nice kitty from sales surely they won't want any more to go, certainly not for cheap, If MoPo really wanted him we should have got in there early.

Also, its in the position where we are already overloaded. Good player or not, I feel we need to focus on flogging BAE and Dawson and spending big on a s**t hot CB.
For that price and for a player that isn't needed I would say please LEVY DO NOT BUY HIM!!!

I want the midfield we have to remain,there's no problem with it,yeah sure we might need a cb if we sell or get a cheap little striker like Remy but other than that I want Pochs philosophy to be asserted onto the squad we have,and I think it looks like Poch is rating mason aswell
Btw I just wikied schneiderlin and is just 1 day younger than me 😊😝😁
I really don't see why we should sell one very good player to get another very good player. Especially when the first good player is a fan favourite, and the new one would be coming in at ridiculous fees. Even if we could sell Sandro at 15 million, and get Schneiderlin for 25, the question remains "Why?". If we could sell someone like Paulinho, I'm all for it. But not at the amount mentioned, nor would I be favourable for it at the cost of Sandro.
You really don't like paulinho do you mag,lil
As a man I love Sandro, but have never got carried away by the hype he gets from our fans. Much like Kaboul in that respect - absence makes the heart grow fonder. He's good, but has never been consistently as good as his legend suggests.

With Poch at the helm, I think we could grab him for under 20 million. Sandro hasn't been the same since his injury, he is very aggressive and commits a lot of fouls. His status as a fan-favourite has been tainted by quotes from him and his agent and personally, after watching a lot of Southampton's style, I think Schneiderlin is a much better player.

I'm also of the opinion that Capoue should be tried consistently at Centre-Back (puts on bullet proof vest), rotating with Kaboul. Then, with Verty and Chiriches, and our young Swiss, we're sorted for Centre Backs.

Please guys just watch some of the videos of Schneiderlin vs other teams, look at the consistency of his stats, and contemplate that a half-fit Sandro is not a better option.
I've already seen plenty of videos of Schneiderlin, and I've seen plenty of games live where he's played. I like him, but no matter what, he's not worth 27 million pounds. His true worth is around 15, and desperation tax could see a club splash for 18-20 at max. Anything more, and they are bled dry by southampton and then more.

Sandro... I'll let you have your opinion, but I absolutely disagree to the absolute hilt. The reason I like him is not because of what he says, but because of how he plays. He is our best defensive reader of the game by far, and his interceptions have saved us plenty of games. Absence doesn't make the heart go fonder, apparently, it makes people forget how good a player was pre-injury. He was bad last season, but so was every other player at the club. That is down to mismanagement, and not because a player is suddenly overhyped. He had the best defensive stats in Europe before his injury, ffs. Not the EPL. Europe.

@Rogue: No. I don't like Paulinho. He's a player who passes behind the attacker and slows down play so he can charge up front for a cross. That's not how I'd like us to play, and I'd not be averse to selling him. He'd suit countries like Italy and Germany.
@Padyy: The young Serb you mean? Yes, Schneiderlin is an upgrade on what we have IMO.The whole point of transfer window is to improve the team but I feel we need to imrpove in the defence firstly and maybe get a striker who can ut inside from the wings and then a mid. If we sort that out, I am all for this deal. He would probably be the most crucial player in the Poch system.
I think Poch will teach Bentaleb to do everything Morgan can do and more. I really hope we dont spend this kind of money on this position. CB and Attackers is all we need.

Kaboul and Sandro are in the same boat for me, BEASTS pre injury, nowhere near that standard last year and deserve to be judged again after a solid pre season.... if they can handle one that is.

All Ryan Mason needs to do is stay fit. More injury prone than Anderton but his technical ability is unreal.
I'm glad people are noticing Mason more. Like you say Bwfyid, if he can remain injury free... we've got a real gem of a player who'll get better as he plays. I was really surprised to see him do so well defensively in his positioning too. Really interested in seeing how we use Bentaleb, Mason and Caroll.
Bwfyid has the exact opinion as me,lol
BAE should start first game of the season :)
just checking the scores in LiveScore from last night and i see Moussa Dembele scoring three times for .... Fulham last night.

He supposed to be a top player,crazy how they have had 2 mouses dembeles,lol
Mixed bag this half. Some inspiring play, some poor passes, some irritating slowing of pace of the game by a couple of players.

Way off the pace: Dawson, Walker, Townsend

Mixed Bag with sublime passes and poor ones: Lamela, Kane, Holtby

Excellent interceptions + Tackling: Holtby, Mason, Rose

Very surprised by Mason and how he distributed play. Holtby's given the role of super hard press, Mason is the distributor, Capoue is the extra defender. Nice to see Rose trying well and doing better. Lamela's dribbling and passing is is exceptional at times, but a danger of being overused. Holtby created that first goal. Kane ought to buy him a round or three.

Unimpressed by the lobs from Dawson. And Unimpressed by the amount of time Walker and Townsend take to make a call on what to do in a situation. They're all slowing the pace down, which is against what the rest of the team are doing.

Bottom line? More through balls to unleash an attacker in this game than the rest of 2014 combined. Passing needs a bit more work from everyone, but it looks like the team is unlearning some very bad passing habits and I take quite a lot of positives from that.
+1
Incredibly dull second half. Holtby looked good before being subbed. Mason went off the boil. Naughton was so bad that we bought in Fredericks and asked Davies to play CB. Eriksen having more back passes than forward either. Some tired players, from the looks of it. The energy and drive shown by the first half players just isn't there in the second. Only Soldado, Lennon and now Fredericks are showing intent.
We looked very fatigued through out that whole match, dull's a good word to describe that game hah.

Micah Richards anyone? That match certainly didn't do Naughton any favours.
Naughton was really ordinary, but he was okay in the other game. Tough call, but I wouldn't mind bringing in Richards on loan if he were available.
Squad for the first half:

Freidel, Walker, Dawson (c), Veljkovic, Rose, Holtby, Capoue, Mason, Townsend, Lamela, Kane.
Anyone up for the match?
Didn't even know we were playing. Just started watching :o
