If we’re going to throw these domestic competitions then there needs to be better planning. I’d suggest all seats being priced at fiver with 500 loyalty points and the entire team being comprised of players from the very bowels of the academy.
Upon reflection, it was only the utter gormlessness of West Ham that allowed us to go 2-0 up. Despite being rubbish, once they did join in they scored three times in a comparatively short space of time and on balance looked far more likely to score a fourth.
As has been wheeled out by me on too many previous occasions, the moment one starts significantly tinkering with our best XI we’re not very good.
Pochettino has been a man of his word in respect of prioritising the league and the Champions League, with substitutions (the addition of better players) only occurring from the 72nd minute onwards.
In depth analysis is probably futile but Son’s passing was particularly appalling and Foyth is another lost child to add to the list that Tom Carroll used to be top off.
No’Cludeo came on to make an immediate bungle and then not to touch the ball a second time. Did we actually sign him or did he win a competition?
In summation, a complete waste of everybody’s time and effort.
