Looking at Poch's reign so far:

Games played: 9

Games won: 8

Games drawn: 1

Goals scored: 26 (3 goals per game)

Goals conceded: 9 (under 1 goal per game)

Looking good Poch, looking good (JUST DON'T SELL HOLTBY!!!)
+3
Yeah he's started well,the players are learning and I think when you have a manager who focusing so much on a philosophy then the players buy into that
Well, AVB had a philosophy and that didn't work out too well. They key difference is that Poch has a philosophy that makes sense.
+3
Miss
Expected a miss,lol
lol.
Steady first half performance. Great save from Romero although I don't think he's a very good goalie in the grand scheme of things. Sandro reading the game well, Dembele pushing for a place against Liverpool. Davies not creating much space for Lennon although maybe Poch has told him not push up the pitch much.
Chiriches making the runs, but giving away the ball too much. Kaboul commanding the back line. Townsend not impressing.

Basically what I expected.
+3
Well said. Paulie looking decent also. Moose/Beast/Lil Paul still quite rusty, yet this is very promising.
Paulinho played much better second half, but passing range is very limited. Moose and Sandro played very well tonight, the former especially is not rusty at all. The last 30 minutes Dembele looked like he got tired, but apart from that he was excellent.
Yeah I thought Dembele and Sandro controlled that game very well.
Is this a game to see who is going to be sold?


I miss holtby
Possibly, if your a Holtby fan i'd be worried. .
Your not a Holtby fan Kalopsia?
:'(
I like Holtby but he lacks that bit quality, I haven't seen him do anything that's made me go wow. I'm not say he's crap but he's just decent, after tonight's performance, players like Dembele and Sandro looked really good. I can't see him getting a look in now. .
Dembele and Sandro are completely different players. Holtby should occupy the no10 spot and be rotating with two other wing-forwards. He hasn't been given a chance yet to prove himself in that system due to Eriksen shining.

His quality comes in his tenacity, his ability to thread an inch-perfect ball between the lines and his recently-shown goal-scoring ability. Given time, he could be one of the best performers in our squad.

The Europa is his chance to shine in his main spot and then potentially start some of the premier league games as part of that rotating trio. When that happens, I guarantee he will be genuinely challenging Eriksen for a first team spot.

And did none of his perfect through-balls to Defoe last season make you go wow? Nor his stamina? I'm not sure you're giving the guy credit.
+2
I'm not doubting his qualities, I think he has a huge amount of potential but I just don't think he's going to get that chance. We'll have to wait and see, I just have a feeling he'll go. .
I'm with Paddy on this. We haven't seen the best of Lewis just yet.

Under AVB, much like Siggy, he was too eager to impress. They both probably felt as if they needed an assist and a goal in order to start more often. Add to that being shipped off by Sherwood to a Fulham battling relegation.

A more relaxed and less insecure Holtby will do wonders in that #10 role.

It doesn't help that he's usually only played with the "B Team" in secondary competitions, or as an impact sub when we're either trailing or shutting up shop. He simply needs a run of games. Besides, having already sold Siggy, who would compete with Eriksen for that spot?
@Kalopsia Sure, but then who fills in Lamela's position? Lennon? Townsend? Holtby provides us with a lot of options that one wouldn't typical get with a single player.

EDIT: Meant to be below Kalopsia's. Stupid forum code.
Lamela would fit into that number 10 role easily
If he provides us with so many options why doesn't he play then? That's sort of the point I'm trying to make, no Eriksen or Lamela in the squad today and still he doesn't get a look in. There's obviously some facet of his game that managers don't like, this could be the 3rd spurs coach that hasn't promoted him. It just reads transfer all over, Poch said he'd like to get the squad numbers down and I think Holtby could be one to go.

I agree with what you've both said, I see the potential there. If he's keen to sit on the bench then great! But even he's said he wants to be playing. .
+1
We don't have anyone even remotely close to what Holtby offers as an impact sub. But it seems that he wants to be playing regularly, and I'm incredibly saddened by what's happening. He isn't a player who can start over Eriksen, Lamela or Chadli for us as yet. I hope things somehow magically work out and he still remains.
@Kalopsia

Who knows? Maybe because he's already submitted a transfer request. AVB didn't play him much, then Dimmy ships him off to a shitty Fulham side that sacked the manager who signed him for someone he previously didn't get along with. Who wouldn't get disillusioned? 5 different managers in 1 1/2 years (including Fulham) doesn't exactly spell out "You have a future here."

So he didn't start today. It's only been 4 games in all competitions. Even Bobby hasn't started in the EPL. Doesn't mean he's not in Poch's plans, does it?

Kid's frustrated, and rightly so. If he gets sold without a replacement, we'll regret it come mid-season.
I guess we'll know more in the coming days.
f*****g Townsend, at times he just slips back to his old habits.
Get in! game over!!!! 2-0 Paulinho! great example that first 5 mins of that second half, we pressed and pressed them so high up the pitch they could get out of their own half.
Naughton having a good game.
Have to start putting these chances away!
Haha Kane 1-0! COYS!

Filthy challenge
Not really mate, keeper did get it all wrong. But he had eyes for the ball, hopefully it's not as serious as it looks. They brought oxygen on which isn't a good sign.
