It sounds like Toby will be gone this summer.
+1
Hopefully we can get a somewhat decent fee from it. Don't know who we will be able to get to replace him though...
Jesus, all Spurs players say Moose is the best player of the squad, I'm amazed!

I've always been a big, big fan of his; that absurd combination of his raw power and composure with amazing close control of the ball has always been a sight to see, but I didn't expect all Spurs players considered him to be the best:

Kane's goals per season:

2017/18: 34
2016/17: 35
2015/16: 28
2014/15: 31
2013/14: 12

40 goal haul seems guaranteed. Can see him smashing the 50 barrier providing he avoids injury

Wow really shows how good Greaves was.

The FA Cup is Spurs' to lose.
Go Wigan!!!

With the draw we've had; Wimbledon, Newport, Rochdale, winner of Swansea/Sheffield Wed, and with some of the biggest obstacles already out of the way; Liverpool, Man City; some powers above seems to be hinting at Spurs to go for it.

The All Action No Plot view...

Rochdale 2-2 Spurs: Four THFC Observations

1. Aggression, or Lack Thereof

Should any passing strangely politely enquire whether we have the ability to field two separate elevens they can now be answered fairly emphatically in the affirmative, the evidence being paraded on the pitch at kick-off. Eleven completely different pairs of legs, from those that did the business in Turin, and if pre kick-off our glorious leader allowed himself a private moment of self-congratulation on the fact, who could have begrudged him?
However, should the line of questioning trickle towards the ability of that back-up eleven to bring home the goods as required, there may be one or two shuffles of feet and sheepish sideways glances.

In truth, the ability of the “reserves” paraded today is not in question, as most are internationals and by my reckoning around eight-elevenths of them would do the necessaries if flung into a Premier League game alongside their more vaunted associates. (Sissoko, Llorente and Vorm, since you ask.)

For some reason however, pitch them together at a lower-league ground and they collectively wobble away like nobody’s business, looking rusty even if they aren’t, and slightly bewildered by the pace, and the crowd, and even the very concept of a cup tie for goodness sake.

Now given that the above pretty much hammers home that this was a collective failing, one might opine that I’m something of a rotter for picking on one individual, particularly when that individual is as loveable and honest as Son, but such is life.

Son in fact at least had the decency to look interested and energetic throughout; his motivation was not really in question. Rather, he seemed to be lacking in willingness to get stuck into things and emerge with a few cuts and scrapes for the sake of the greater good. One can imagine that if offered a sword and shield before a gladiatorial biff, he would look at them in horror, and enquire if the whole affair could be settled without any need for physical contact. The spirit, one might say, is willing enough in Son, but the flesh is as weak as they come.

And so, predictably, the young nib could be seen pulling out of 50-50 challenges, getting wrestled off his chosen path and generally being bullied this way and that. And in a way, that was our performance in a microcosm, at least for the first hour or so.

2. Substitutes Raising The Entire Team

That general sentiment of tentativeness and dislike for the less fragrant elements of cup football only really began to change once the substitutes were shoved on. Admittedly young Winks came out in the second half looking suitably mortified for his error, and determined to atone by scurrying around for as long as his legs would obey, but by and large we continued to potter about the place with only a passing degree of interest, and if the final whistle had sounded and we had been eliminated I’m not sure the eleven on the pitch would have been motivated to do much more than shrug shoulders and enquire what was for dinner.

So it was left to the subs to address matters. They were introduced iteratively, and our performance improved in direct proportion. Lamela and Dele brought with them not only energy, speed of thought and some deft touches; they also managed to haul everyone around them up to a fairly similar level.

Quite why we could not have started with that same sharpness is beyond me, but I suppose we should just be glad that it transpired at all. Lamela and Dele suggested the novel concept of picking their way through Rochdale midfield and defence, and the rest of our heroes cottoned on to the idea and joined in, as if it were the first time they had ever heard of such a scheme but by golly they wanted part of it.

3. The Curious Incident of Danny Rose Randomly Upping His Game

If Son’s timidity in the face of a flailing limb or two were frustrating, but mitigated by that willing spirit, the contrast in Danny Rose’s attitude pre- and post-substitutions was downright bizarre. For the first hour or so the Rose locker was utterly bereft of willing spirit. The young bean seemed to do little more for two thirds of the game than go through the motions, as if to wave his arms and wonder out loud why some people were picked to play away to Juventus while some other people were picked to play away to Rochdale.

All of which made some sense, for here, after all, is a man who, when not happy with his lot at N17, will grab the nearest megaphone and broadcast the fact to society at large.

But what followed made for pretty odd viewing, because as Lamela, Dele and Kane popped in to wave hello, young Rose went through the gears at breakneck speed, until he ended up as some sort of Gerrard-esque driving force ploughing straight through central midfield and towards the Rochdale penalty area. Willing spirit, flesh that was anything but weak – by the time our second goal came round Rose had discovered the whole bally lot.

(And then he lost his bearings slightly for the equaliser.)

4. Moura Looks A Nifty Sort

The silver linings in all this admittedly took quite some locating, they not being of the ilk that jostled for position and yelled “Me! Me! Me!” in a desperate attempt to make themselves stand out from the crowd.
However, the newbie looks a fun sort of fish, what? If “Lack of match practice” were the official party line, the memo sure as heck did not reach Moura Towers, because the young buck tore about the place like a kid on Christmas morning.

He managed in the opening ten minutes the sort of feats that nobody at Spurs has done in several season – viz. waltz around opponents for the sheer joy of being alive. A pretty handy type of name to have in one’s address book, if you get my drift.

A (near-enough) debut goal will also do the honest fellow some good, I imagine. And a propos that equaliser – and at the risk of having the universe collapse under the weight of absurdity – I must commend Monsieur Sissoko for a perfectly-weighted through ball for our newest recruit. Odd, isn’t it?
+3
Bet no one saw that coming from a mile off...

A match we could have been doing without. Whens the replay?
+1
It's just Poch being charitable and giving Rochdale a payday at Wembley. Also an extra game for Kane to add to his goal tally so he can break the Spurs 50goal record; and Moura to get more match fitness; gives the whole team more minutes. It's brilliant man-management and tactical genius from Poch, extending our FA cup run to keep our second string team focused.
+2
That's one way of looking at it...
I didn't watch the game but from what I understand neither Wanyama or Winks will be pushing out Dier and Dembele in the immediate future. Obviously Poch must also been correct in leaving Toby out for the Arsenal and Juventus games. All of these guys need more minutes to pick up form.
Llorente and Rose I guess are the first two gone in the summer.
+1
It's a shame but I worry we've outgrown Winks. Wanyama had a poor game for sure because his main strength is his strength, but ironically he was bullied all over the pitch.

I dno about Rose being the first to go in the summer. Not sure where he could go if he doesn't get back to his pre-judas comments form.
+1
Toby was terrible all game. So was Wanyama. Rose wasn't so good either. Lots of misplaced passes, poor defensive decisions.

First goal was due to Winks being an idiot and trying to dribble up field instead of making a simple pass.

Second one was lack of awareness and perhaps losing focus as the game was near its end. Toby's attempted headed clearance was awful and gave them a clean shot at goal.

Only positive in the game was Lucas Moura's performance.
+1
Not to make excuses, but it was obvious that Toby had not acclimitised to the game or the pitch quick enough. Early on in the game Toby sent a simple pass straight out the pitch and then proceeded to slip at every opportunity; quite literally!

Wanyama lost the ball in exactly the same position Winks did, arguably worse actually as he was right in front of our defence, and needlessly tried to hold off pressure and lost possession. Thankfully this was still early in the game and the Rochdale attacker failed to spot his 2 free mates just beyond Toby and instead took a shot that failed to hit the target. These were the early signs that Rochdale had a clear gameplan, and they were passing it better all over the pitch against us too. Home advantage at its best. They harried our midfield and probed for the mistakes.
+2
Write off half. Wanyama Toby Winks, along with the rest of the team bar Lucas have been so poor. Wanyama giving goal chances away, Winks/Toby giving the goal away needlessly. Llorente missing his chances as usual and Son is having an off day. Completely outplayed right now and deserve to be 1-0 down.

Poch made 11 changes to the team, so it's no surprise there is a lack of chemistry there. Same team needs to come out second half and get their s**t together quickly. We have got more gears and more in the tank to compete.
+3
Does anyone have any insight into whats happening with Rose? Like I mean granted hes not performed as he used to when played this season but hes never had a proper run of games to start stringing some form together.

Are we saying that hes still not getting played regularly because of the comments he made to the press last summer?
+1
no rose is good he gained a lot of weight also so he is working back to match fitness.
+1
Davies started the season as our top defender, hes contributed directly in 7 goals and has generally been solid. Rose had a long layoff following his poor comments, so can be afforded the time to get back to full fitness. There is no divine right for him to be starting ahead of Davies until he gets back into form and full fitness. That is Poch's philosophy, there are no favourites & no automatic starters; look at the fact that Toby has not been played since he declared himself fully fit after his 90minutes at Newport. Missing both huge games at Arsenal and Juventus.

Poch trusts all his players and the amazing team chemistry at the moment proves he is man managing well enough to keep everyone happy and on their toes.
+1
My team vs Rochdale:

-------------------------------Vorm--------------------------------
-Aurier----------Aldeweireld--------------Foyth-------------Rose--
----------------------Wanyama-----Winks--------------------------
-Moura------------------------Lamela------------------------Son--
-----------------------------Llorente-------------------------------

Then vs Crystal Palace same as against Arsenal.
+1
A new 500k pitch has been relaid on at Rochdale, but I still don't think that will help much. It will still be a shitty pitch, so I would start Trippier in order to put some crosses into the box for Llorente. No point having Moura and Aurier on the same wing making runs.

Also replied to a post below re- Juve game/Trippier/Aurier mate.

Aurier and Moura know each other and can be an interesting attacking pair on the right flank. Against Rochdale Moura might not be too fussed about the sandy pitch. He probably grew up playing football on the beach...
I agree Aurier and Moura is a good attacking pair. Will be interesting to see how that pans out in the future but just no need for double pace today, Trippier's crossing better be on form!
