I feel so empty after that... After dominating the flow of the game, with our midfielders (especially Bentaleb) running the show, it was two deflected goals that were the difference.

We have our back four for the future. Dier is going to be a bloody star, and if we can keep Vertonghen, with Rose and Walker learning every day, we will have the best back four in the league in a few seasons (and 3 of them young and English)..

The bad luck that we experience is unrivalled in any other team. But the future under Pochettino is bright. If he stays this summer, we have huge hope. If Levy fires him, I will stop following Spurs for at least a season.

I don't have Wifi at the moment, so won't be able to post for a few weeks, but come mid-march, I'll be a regular as before.

Keep your heads up lads, we deserved to win against one of the best teams in Europe. Pochettino is bringing the best out of our youngsters and is slowly creating the team that he wants, and with a couple of additions in the summer, we will win something or get top 4 next season. For the first time in years I can say that with confidence.

COYS!!! COYS!!! COYS!!!

p.s I bloody hate Fazio

+2
why hate Fazio? :/
I prefer Dier to him too tbh, but Fazio has much to offer IMO. Our team is littered with mistakes regardless of who starts in defence tbh.
+1
Luck had nothing to do with it to be honest. It was a stupid foul by Chadli when he had all the time in the world to get to that ball first and clear it. Then the defending of the freekick was just naive and rubbish. There were 4 Tottenham players all lined up ready to head that ball clear, but Rose heads it straight into the danger zone and it's not picked up. We never got back into the game after that. Chelsea had it easy.

Spurs played decent, we didn't play badly but we didn't play well enough to win it. Mourinho and his team used their vast experience to their advantage and executed their gameplan perfectly. We ran out of steam and couldn't effectively press high for the whole game. Our attack wasn't clinical enough and we didn't create enough chances. Kane never got into the game. Rose and Walker always present great attacking intent but with no end product. Eriksen, Mason and especially Bentaleb had a good game in the middle of the park. Dier and Vertonghen were solid with what they had to deal with. We lacked the killer instinct needed to win a final; Chelsea didn't.

At the end of the day, what else can you expect from one of the best teams/managers around right now who had all week to prepare against us. This was a Wembley/Final debut for a lot of the players and they can only learn from this experience.

Onwards and upwards. There is a bright future ahead of this young team, and I'm sure there will be more Wembley finals to come. Now to focus on the league and fight for a CL spot.

COYS
1) Chadli foul on Ivanovic was ridiculously soft. Ivanovic pisses me off, he's a straw house masquerading as one made of brick. Literally got brushed on the arm and went down. Can't believe the linesman gave it.

2) The FK defending was poor yes but how is it not lucky that it deflected straight to Terry and then Terry's shot deflected into the net?

3) Second goal was a cross that could've been caught by Lloris or deflected out for a corner. But no, our luck was terrible so it went straight into the net.

That's not mentioning the reffing, like Dembele being fouled in their box, Harry getting manhandled in the box on a corner. I feel like if we had gone down as softly as they did on every challenge, the result would have been different.
@SS

1. Soft or not, it was a foul. Ivanovic goes down always and even Chadli, I'm sure, must be aware of that. You can't risk silly attempts to foul against a team with so many good headers of the ball.

2. Lucky? Yes, maybe. We made our own luck(lack of it) by not clearing our lines.

3. That 2nd goal was really hard to take. Walker did just about enough IMO. Wicked deflection left Hugo with no chance.
+1
@SS Like I said really, Chelsea (and Mourinho in particular) used their experience. They drew in fouls, and won the calls, maybe we should have dived more, but we didn't and thus in the end didn't get any calls.

You say it got deflected to Terry, but I say it was our poor defending which meant the ball wasn't cleared properly and eventually fell to Terry who was in the right position. In any case, was there a wrong position to be in for Terry? We had complete zonal marking and didn't mark any Chelsea players. That isn't Chelsea, that is Spurs naivety and poor defending.

At the end of the day, we didn't play well enough to beat Chelsea. Everything would have turned out differently had we scored first but we didn't.
Spurs vs Sydney FC! May 20th should be made official on Friday! All you Aussie and Kiwi yids!
+2
May 20th? Are you sure? That's not possible. We play our final league match on 24th May.
+1
Sorry! May 30th!
Tough break guys, but I think Jose says it best: ‘First of all I want to say that in the middle of my happiness is space to think about Mauricio Pochettino, his staff and Tottenham as a team and a club,’ said the Blues boss. ‘I met him in Spain many years ago as a player and then when he was a young manager when I was at Real Madrid. He came to England, proved himself, nobody game him anything for free.

‘He did fantastic work at Southampton, came to a big club like Tottenham and is building a fantastic team. They gave us a hard final, they made us be humble and think about the game strategically.

:)

Respect to Mourinho for his comments after the match.
+3
Proud of Mauricio and team today, hopefully this is the first of many cup finals!
+4
Lets be honest. None of us expected this season to involve a Cup final, or even be this close in the fight for 4th place for a considerable portion of the year. We're doing quite well overall, with a few things needed to be ironed out. The time we'll truly see Poch truly shine through will be from 2016-2017 season, where the team will be well and truly his.

Patience is key, and like Kalopsia says, lets be proud of the team today. After the start to the season, we've come back rather well.
+3
Hard luck guys
good thing was the referee was good
+3
Referee was good? Hahahahahaha

Close match, 2-0 is harsh on us, Chelsea got lucky both on the pitch and with the ref.

Two deflections did us in, foul which led to the first goal was incredibly soft and there was clear shirt pulling in the Chelsea box that went uncalled. I also still don't know how Costa came out of the match without a yellow.

Enjoy your cup win.
+6
Chadli had no reason to foul Ivanovic he was going no where
+2
He didn't foul him
+1
@Drogbalampard, except it wasn't a foul or at least it should not have been called one.
+1
it was a soft one but Ivanavic made the most of it since he is like a tank that falls like a feather
Bentaleb/Walker our best players on the night imo. We just didn't seem to have the energy today, even though the players did play well.

Our defending on set pieces still as poor as ever, leading to the goal.

Chelsea had the luck today with some questionable calls from the ref and the walker deflection, and once they went 2-0 they sat back and do what they do best, and it worked.

Can't really say we were the better side as we barely created any clear cut chances, but 2-0 is a very flattering scoreline for Chelsea.

Really dissappointing week :(
+1
Bentaleb was great! He was my motm for us.
+2
Our set piece defense is one of the worst in the league. We've conceded time and again in this, and most of the mistakes have come from defenders who fall asleep and let a player they were supposed to be marking through for a clear header. Something we'll need to fix in the summer, and I'm sure Poch will be just as disappointed with the frequency of mistakes.
Both Rose and Walker have been spectacular for us today. Unfortunate for Walker to get the deflection though. Masterclass tactical play by Mourinho thou. Class Chelsea play. We just didn't have the same grit and pressure like the last time we beat them.

I dunno for me Bentaleb is a good player but He still needs more time to develop into a top player. We should have started with Dembele. Kane did what he could, couldn't ask more from him. As for our other striker, I better keep my mouth shut about him or get the wrath of his supporters.
+4
Werder Bremen vs Wolfsburg atm. Man, if we could have turned back time and used 30million for Bas Dos. What a bargain!
Really could use a target man playing 4-4-2 when we need more firepower. Would be really effective against those towering Chelsea defenders.
Typical! Have a dig at Soldado even when there's no need to.

Bas Dost? He has been brilliant of late. Had an absolute shocker for 2 seasons in a row though. Bet you would have had a field day with him. :D
I hope we never spend 30+ on a player ever again. There's absolutely no need for it, we have a fantastic academy along with Paul Mitchell we should be targeting affordable options in the transfer market come the summer.
+1
Bas Dost. Before this season, he had 48 Games for Wolfsburg, and scored 17 goals. There's your "bargain" right there. When we bought in Soldado, he had 1 year at Wolfsburg and scored 12 in 33 games in what was heralded as a supremely underwhelming season for him, so much so that Wolfsbug completely changed their line of attack starting from their midfield. Though brought in KDB, Caligiuri and Gustavo when they realized that the combination of Diego + Perisic + Dost was doing nothing for them. They pushed out Dost as a substitute option, and got the midfield ticking properly, creating chances and then reintegrated Dost into the squad, despite him having just 5 goals from 15 games that year.

You want to talk about bargains bud? Learn that an attacking formation doesn't click overnight. You need to figure out what the striker needs, and see if the team can supply it. If not, let the striker adapt, or let the team adapt. Wolfsburg adapted the team. You think you've got the patience to integrate a striker into the squad despite 2 years of bad performances?

This was such a needless dig at Soldado, and trying to victimize yourself by playing up the conversation we had below. There is just one person on this forum that I refuse to discuss anything with, considering how obtuse said person is. You're fast approaching being the second.
Wow I literally said nothing about Soldado and I get 3 paragraphs of stick. This is a new low Mag. I thought you were one of the cool guys in here. Well if thats how its gonna be then be it. I really hope that the guy goes to another club suited for him and get 30 goal a season to make you and Suraj happy again. Obviously, Spurs is not the place for him to shine atm.
Said nothing about Soldado? Seriously? That genuinely made me laugh.

I thought the same about you as well. I did expect you to play the victim despite the bait, which I took. I notice there is nothing at all in your argument to acknowledge the actual discussion of Bas Dost and why he would not have been a bargain. It is yet again deflected onto a safe topic which people will focus on. Atleast you are consistent.

This is the last time I shall respond to you, as I don't want to be in a position where I don't even allow you to voice your opinion on a forum. Have a good day and a successful journey ahead :)
+1
I'd think Dos would integrate well to our system nevertheless. Suit yourself mate. I just think your overreacting tbh. Never thought Soldado will cause this much of a commotion. I think it's more of a backing up your friend Suraj there but nvm I don't wanna get banned do I.
'As for our other striker, I better keep my mouth shut about him or get the wrath of his supporters.'

How is this not a dig, Nippro? See, nothing against you. You're entitled to your opinion as much as I'm, but if you go after a player for no reason, I will try to stick up for him. I would have stuck up for Ade/Kabs too, if you had brought them up while describing the cup final match. :)
so were playing copy paste huh. Owyte lts do it again:

The dig:
As for our other striker, I better keep my mouth shut about him or get the wrath of his supporters.

The response:
1)Typical! Have a dig at Soldado even when there's no need to.

2)This was such a needless dig at Soldado, and trying to victimize yourself by playing up the conversation we had below. There is just one person on this forum that I refuse to discuss anything with, considering how obtuse said person is. You're fast approaching being the second.

Lets look at Bas Dos. He has scored 12 goals in 41 appearances in his first two seasons. But you got to realize that his second season was filled with injuries having started only 6 games and 7 late starts. and by the end of the second season did he get back fully fit to prove his worth until the Bayern game where all hell break loose. Now this season he has 13 goals in 12 appearances. Yes, they made some changes and made their midfielders gel and click but the f**k you're talking about when we need to specially modify our team to make Soldado become good. Its Bas Dos who worked hard and prove that he could adapt to any changing situations None of the clubs that he came in tailored the way they played to 'specifically' suit him. As you can see his stats show that he always flourishes prety late around the second season he is in the club.

Within the seasons we got Soldado, he's already had 45 appearances for us and only had 7 goals. We've given him plenty of appearances for him to develop himself and get his spirit up but he's just staying the same level of s**t and unwilling to adapt. And his Fiorentina's miss is still the teams fault because we cannot adapt to his volley specialist sort of play. Just look at the way Harry Kane debut his season for us and see the way he has adapted superbly to our way of play. He was friggin slow only waiting for those easy tap ins and boy has he changed. Please don't tell me we tailored our midfielders to suit the way Harry Kane plays ffs.

Boy, we really need to tweak our team and incorporate a volley speacialist into our team ei then we will see Soldado become a MEGA STRIKER. God, I would just love we keep him for another season and prove to both ya that the guys just a lost cause flop and whatever we do with him,the most he'll produce is an average performance. The patterns repeating and repeating of how 'these' fans are keeping overanalyzing s**t justifying the sacking of Redknapp, the buying of AVB saying he'll bring the likes of HULK and the guy introducing a new modern way of football. If slating Soldado is a crime then I'd proudly be banned. I'm a Spurs supporter and I'll take the club ahead of Soldado any day.
The game on Thursday had a massive impact on your game today. The players couldn't keep up the pressure for the full 90mns. The way you guys started playing I thought we were going to get destroyed. respect
