Enjoyable stuff last night all things considered, of course had Kane not directed us away from the brown smelly stuff and toward glory there would be a greater emphasis on soul searching this morning than there will be.
On Kane I disagree that he entirely saved us, remember he did benefit from the build up play no matter how scant it was. In fact for me, and other expert analysts the absence of meaninglessly bloated possession stats was refreshing opposed to a concern.
Far too many Spurs players had the first touch of an Uber driver. Son in particular was inept and perhaps much of this was due to the pitch which I believe is due to be replaced next week.
Aurier and Sissoko developing a relationship of sorts and this is pleasing. Finally, despite many of you incessantly jumping the gun we witnessed Sissy’s best game in the shirt.
Fans don’t understand how a 3 works – nor does Pochettino. This is something I’ll return to later on.
Trippier on the left does not work. It doesn’t work. If you’re looking for a positioning that works, that isn’t it.
Harry Winks was notably out of his depth but that said more about the way we were set up than it did about his own competencies. The bookies knew and they discounted the odds upon the news about Eriksen breaking.
Fans also struggling to ‘get over’ the loss of Rose and Bonzo. Good luck with your grieving. It’s over. News flash: you can no longer go to the cinema, buy a bag of broken biscuits and get a tram ride home for half a shilling. We’ll include that in the back 5 discussion anon.
Ratings and a tatical analysis en route.
