Tottenham Hotspur

How Not To Pick A Starting XI

How Not To Pick A Starting XI

Yes, yes, Spurs are still in the FA Cup. Rejoice one, rejoice all.

What’s clear is that we yet again have decided to dick about revisit the tinkering.

Rotation in the 21st century is a good thing. Squads without depth do not achieve anything.

But with a week before having to face West Brom I don’t understand why Pochettino would opt to compose such cut and shunt side.

The net result was that Vincent Janssen was taken to the front of the class and had his pants pulled down.

You could have played Cristiano Ronaldo in Vinny’s spot last night and he too would have probably floundered.

The supply chain wasn’t there.

Alli, Kane and Eriksen were behind 30 of Spurs’ 51 goals this season, and the same 3 were responsible for a third of the 33 assists.

Instead of finding the game a useful opportunity, Janssen lost his head and tried so hard he lost sight of how to play football.

Alan Shearer on MOTD summed it up perfectly whilst showing the Dutchman’s poor positioning across various stills from the game.

“Vincent Janssen is making life far too easy for defenders. He keeps coming towards the ball instead of getting into the six-yard box where he could actually score goals. He is taking the easy way out and he looks to me that he is frightened of missing chances. Unless he starts getting into the right areas, he is not going to score goals.”

The fundamental problem here is that Poch is persisting with the politicising of team selection, opposed to simply playing the best side for each game.

If yesterday was anything to go by then the priority is Champions League qualification.

That starting XI will not progress in the FA Cup and will teach us nothing that we don’t know already.

The Janssen purchase will of course be defended by the Flat Earthers. He was inexpensive and mumbling something or other about Poch improving him in time almost sounds plausible if you don’t think about it too deeply.

In the meantime, Liverpool have can summon Sturridge from their bench, Manchester United have not just Martial, but Rooney and Rashford in the wings. Manchester City use Nolito and Iheanacho, the Arsenal haveWellbeck, Iwobi and Giroud.

Spurs? We have what is commonly referred to as the ‘Tottenham way’, which has come to mean ‘doing it on the cheap whilst crossing one’s fingers’.

      … or possibly ‘the dippers.’ Either way if we send out a similar 11, we’ll get battered. Top 4 is Levy’s prize coz it generates more income regardless of what fans want and need.

  • Real Fan? January 9, 2017 at 7:44 pm

    For me, it’s not whether Vinnie is a great strikers already, or whether he will become one. It’s whether he can fit in with the team and whatever formation is being played when he gets called upon…and score goals. We don’t need someone else who’s good at linking up play or holding the ball up. We need some fakir who’s going to score some facky goals. Maybe Vinnie can be that guy, but he needs to show it pronto as far as I’m concerned.

    • Caspurs♿️ January 9, 2017 at 7:46 pm

      I think Vinnie may have taken a wrong turn down his own rabbit hole, we’ll see.

    • AccringtonSpurs January 9, 2017 at 7:52 pm

      yeah, if he scored goals everyone would be happy

    • SpurAndy January 9, 2017 at 7:55 pm

      Agree RF, if we want to be a team sitting at the top table we can’t just be seen as a club for developing youngsters, as good as that is. Sometimes you need the completed package who’s been there and done it. Taff made a good point that most top players wouldn’t want to play second fiddle. I think that is possible if we were a team that was regularly winning things but until that happens maybe we need an experienced striker who’s still got a few miles on the clock an example being Defoe.

  • Pocha Smurf January 9, 2017 at 7:36 pm

  • Andreas January 9, 2017 at 6:58 pm

    If Jansen is a good striker (we all hope he is) then why isn’t he being coached properly? He needs to stop making runs from the penalty box backwards towards midfield. Make hi stay around the penalty area and get the midfield to put the ball in the box for him. Unfortunately this league is unforgiving and he could have his career ruined.He should listen to Shearer.

    • Ronwol196061 January 9, 2017 at 7:01 pm

      The reason he comes back more is to buy space
      When a midfielder or winger type takes on a man it creates space
      That’s why I think NK would help feed the situation

      • willy juice January 9, 2017 at 7:06 pm

        nk looks to have something about him. We should loan him out to a prem team for the remainder of the season if hes not going to bother playing him

    • willy juice January 9, 2017 at 7:04 pm

      He was actually looking to get in behind a few times yesterday but the run was spotted or the ball wasnt on. Doesnt help that hes not the quickest in the world.

  • Spurstacus 💋 January 9, 2017 at 6:48 pm

    Janssen is a quality player and goalscorer who has found the transition to Prem difficult, and now he’s struggling with confidence.

    You don’t get the best out of a player like Vinnie by schlagging and writing him off. The man is 22 and can score for fun with both feet or his head.

    Some of you fathers on here wouldn’t dream of writing your own kids off when you know they are struggling. I hope.

    Don’t bother with the ‘he’s a millionaire’ argument. I suspect the money makes things harder not easier.

    Why do you guys keep hollering about a striker when we don’t even use a real striker in the formation?

    • mattspurs January 9, 2017 at 6:48 pm

      And there lies the problem with Janssen – he’s a 9.
      Despite Shearer’s comments think that Kane plays much deeper and wider than Janssen.

      • Ronwol196061 January 9, 2017 at 7:01 pm

        Kane does because at times he couldn’t buy space up top

      Ditto wingers.

  • Andreas January 9, 2017 at 6:43 pm

    I can’t believe we could have signed Dembele from Fulham after he had medical. Whoever said no should be sacked.And whoever chose Jansen should be sacked.Also Fazio ,sacked..Paulinhio , sacked.
    Whoever said no to Suarez, Moutinhio, Mane, sacked.

    • Real Fan? January 9, 2017 at 7:19 pm

        I think you’ve cracked it.

  • caveman January 9, 2017 at 6:02 pm

    When is the penny going to drop with Levy that you get what you pay for. So many cock-up’s and dithering to the point of desperation. He could have bought a top rate striker and still can with the sale of Bentaleb, Carroll and Janssen. JUST DO IT.

    • mattspurs January 9, 2017 at 6:07 pm

      Soldado?

    • UnkleTaff January 9, 2017 at 6:10 pm

      What top-rate striker is going to come to the club knowing he’ll be playing second fiddle to Harry Kane?

      • caveman January 9, 2017 at 6:19 pm

        Well if every team used that as an excuse, where would back-up come from? Come off it Taff.

        • UnkleTaff January 9, 2017 at 6:27 pm

          Whilst Kane stays fit any striker who comes to Spurs knows that he’ll get the limited opportunities to shine that Soldado did and Janssen is getting (this is one of the reasons, for example, I suspect Dembele chose Celtic over us).

          The solution, as far as I can see, is to bring in players who can play as more than just a striker. Which is why I’ve been arguing Berahino’s case for so long as he can play both up front or out wide. Dele Alli, too, looks more than capable of playing up front as well. Spending silly money on someone who’s just going to be warming the bench most of the time makes no sense to me at all.

          • mattspurs January 9, 2017 at 6:40 pm

            +1

          • caveman January 9, 2017 at 6:40 pm

            Rotation, rotation rotation.

            • Real Fan? January 9, 2017 at 7:21 pm

              You think HK would remain engaged if he was regularly being rotated out for another striker? How often is Costa rotated?

              • UnkleTaff January 9, 2017 at 7:22 pm

                …and Ibrahimovic. To the detriment of Marcus Rashford.

                • ethan January 9, 2017 at 8:00 pm

                  Chelsea don’t need to rotate much because they aren’t in the champions league. If they were do you really think Costa would be starting 2 games per week? Look at Giroud and Sanchez at the Arse for example. Or Man United when they had Berbatov, Tevez and Rooney rotating. I agree we could use another striker who can also play in the attacking midfield positions but the most important thing is we need to get someone with genuine ability, not Jansen.

          • Ronwol196061 January 9, 2017 at 6:59 pm

            With you Taff
            Still Janssen can offer a plan B
            He just needs a few creative types who can feed him

  • SkySportsJews January 9, 2017 at 5:53 pm

    Kind of agreed. Although Kane would have missed it anyway due to the birth of his baby

  • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? January 9, 2017 at 5:03 pm

    Fair assessment. Jansen is never going to prove anybody wrong without 8 to 10 games in our strongest line up. That ain’t gonna happen. Unless something happens to Kane, and then itl be in the lap of the gods.

  • legover January 9, 2017 at 4:55 pm

    Janssen has come top of the poll for the least effective striker in the PL. So its not all bad news. He had a great chance to shine with the first eleven when Kane was injured and he failed miserably. At least Soldado looked as if he had a football brain. I see nothing in this guy apart from a lot of huffing and puffing, running back towards our goal with the ball. He has no turn of speed to get him past a defender, I see no quick feet or heading prowess. He does not possess Ali’s knack of finding space so what exactly does he contribute. He may well be a topper fellow and he may well show willing but that aint what this club needed in the summer or now. Loan him out and go get a proven goalscorer and we might just might push higher up towards the top of the table. But of course it wont happen because Levy and Enic have no desire for football success just a good ROI , solid asset management and a strategy to keep the flat earthers and happy clappers at the turnstiles funding the business whilst dancing on the edge of what is needed.

  • Double A January 9, 2017 at 4:44 pm

    “Striker” signings last 6 years, what does that say to you? it says to me we don’t take recruiting top strikers and their impact on our chances of silverware seriously? Goals win matches, more matches you win, more chance of winning trophies!

    But not totally in keeping with recruitment in other key positions, we are prepared to pay relatively top dollar for defenders and midfielders but when we are pressed to pay for strikers it is always the second/third choice at cheaper rates!

    It can’t continue!

    You’ve got to have a product, having a manager who appears to hide deficiencies can only last so long, what happens when he gets fed up with either the clubs inability to totally back him, or his ego has enough of telling him he can win the league without the signings of world class players?

    Hope i’m proved wrong, but who’s content with finishing 8-12 points behind league winners every year and getting to the odd semi final/final and coming up short? Anyone? We’ve been sneering at that lot for similar expectations/outcomes. For Wenger is essentially their Levy!

  • Arcane January 9, 2017 at 3:50 pm

    Batman has had much less game time than Vinny. Yesterday he got a goal and an assist.

    Vinny can be forgiven for not actually scoring if he’s getting bad service. But i don’t feel inclined to forgive him for playing so badly – losing the ball stupidly when he did get it, and as usual being in the wrong place at the wrong time. And this against championship opposition. All the head shaking and arm throwing was the last straw.

    Get rid. Make Levy learn his lesson.

    • mattspurs January 9, 2017 at 3:58 pm

      Rose, Kane, Modric, Bale, Lamela

      All terrible in their first appearances for us.

      Patience my man. Janssen’s career thus far is basically him overcoming setbacks and failure.

      • Arcane January 9, 2017 at 4:27 pm

        I’ll be happy if you’re proved right, but there are 2 differences. With them you could see the potential for the role, or they had the talent for a different one.

        Vinny looks singularly unsuited to our style of play, and doesn’t have the mobility or skills to do anything other than provide a static target to hold it up and lay it off – which he can do well.

        And, as others have pointed out, we no longer have the luxury of allowing players to be shit for a year or 2 before they improve. He won’t get the game time.

        • UnkleTaff January 9, 2017 at 4:30 pm

          Hindsight’s a wonderful thing. With the possible exception of Modric all the players Matt named were routinely and mercilessly slagged off on here before they came good. All would undoubtedly have been sold if this blog’s patrons had had their way.

          • Hartley January 9, 2017 at 4:35 pm

            I couldn’t see Rose, Kane or Lamela making it, Modric and Bale were no brainers from the very first time I saw them play.
            I still have my doubts in regards to Lamela.

            • Arcane January 9, 2017 at 4:44 pm

              Rose’s speed and lack of defensive experience meant he might well have potential. Kane I’d written off, but that was before he’d had as much 1st team game time as Vinny – he looked too slow to me, and I hadn’t seen his actual skill level. Lamela I’m still not convinced by. He’s certainly come good, but still doesn’t provide enough end product to justify a place at the next level.

            • Spurstacus 💋 January 9, 2017 at 6:32 pm

              Yep. Absolutely this.

          • Arcane January 9, 2017 at 4:55 pm

            Well, that’s why I’m actually sticking my neck out and indulging in a little speculative foresight.

            Can you name me a player that a top 4 club has persisted with, while playing badly, for as long as we persisted with Rose, Lala, or might have to with Vinny?
            (And didn’t suffer for it).

            If we’re gonna be top 4 it’s time to act like it.

            • UnkleTaff January 9, 2017 at 5:01 pm

              Chelsea stuck by Torres for what seemed an eternity.

              • Arcane January 9, 2017 at 5:40 pm

                True, but he had already seriously proved himself in the PL.

                • UnkleTaff January 9, 2017 at 5:50 pm

                  Okay then. How about Denis Bergkamp?

                  • Arcane January 9, 2017 at 6:32 pm

                    Haha, ok Taff you play a mean game. My explanation in this case is it was 20 years ago, when the PL was about a quarter as competitive as it is now.

                    The CL/ European money, the risks, pressure, and time-frames of today’s game are very different.

                    • ethan January 9, 2017 at 7:45 pm

                      Torres may not have been scoring much for Chelsea but his touch, technique and all round contribution to team play showed he was still a class player, and that he was still offering something to the team. Bergkamp had a poor first season but still from his touch and technique he had class written all over him. The potential was always there. Even Soldado who didn’t score too many was offering more to the team than Jansen does right now. Soldado was an intelligent player with good technique. Jansen has shown absolutely nothing so far, not even glimpses. We need a proper striker to backup and complement Kane.

            • mattspurs January 9, 2017 at 5:47 pm

  • VincentianMagic January 9, 2017 at 3:45 pm

    Thought Winks was excellent again. N’Koundo was lively as he always is (albeit he only ever gets 10 mins or so). CCV wasn’t tested but looks solid enough – not sure he has the pace and height to be the very best but time will tell.

    Janssen looks poor. he tries hard and can hold up the play well… but that’s about it.

    Quite why we didn’t get Dembele in I have no idea. The boy Haller isn’t too dissimilar but would be more of a risk.

    Can’t see many arrivals in Jan – but maybe one star will arrive if we can sell Bentaleb, Carroll, etc, and not get fleeced.

    So we’ll probably have to wait for the summer window to be disappointed again.

  • mattspurs January 9, 2017 at 3:36 pm

    Quite simply the formation was far too negative yesterday to allow Vinny to flourish. The back four diamond of CCV, Wimmer, Dier and Toby had one player to mark between them, Winks sat just in front of them passing the ball mostly sideways. Davies and Trippier were man marked by their wingbacks. That left Sissoko and Son as the creative driving force behind the team – these guys can put in a shift at times but being the guile and creativity to push us on is beyond them.

    I’d get Clive Allen back in to work with Janssen, particularly as we’re unlikely to get a replacement striker in this window. We don’t buy hit-the-ground strikers so maybe we should coach who we have better. It took Kane several years of loans to get to the point where he turned it round.

  • MarkFalco January 9, 2017 at 2:46 pm

    TBF we were firing blanks when Janssen DID have decent players behind him such as Eriksen, Dele etc. It was the period of the draws if you think back – seemingly endless 0-0’s and 1-1’s, only enlivened by Janssen’s 3 pens. Ditto in the CL except we lost more.
    No Janssen is the problem here not who’s behind him.

    You’ll have to trust me on this and no I can’t give sources:
    Mitchell recommended Batshuaye and Mauricio agreed. We needed a young pacey striker to not only back-up “the holy one”, but also to play alongside/in front of him and in various new formations. Think back to the Berahino bid – similar sort of player.
    Levy baulked at the transfer fee of Bats and also presumably the wages (though I don’t think it got that far TBH), Bats was very happy to join us (as was Dembele) because he had the sense to realize he’d get serious game time with Spurs to further his career.
    Levy said no and Mitchell resigned feeling that the owners had no real desire for success after all and were basically wasting his time as he felt nothing but a puppet.
    Poch was promised Janssen AND Dembele by way of compensation to smooth things over, he was told £17-18m should buy them both. It didn’t. Levy spent his budget on just Janssen and Dembele was left with little other option than to join the Walt Disney League up north where there was no more chance of him being numero uno than at Spurs, except Lee Griffiths suffered a serious injury. The rest as they say is history.
    Take it or leave it I don’t really care TBH.

    • OfftheShelf January 9, 2017 at 3:12 pm

      As soon as Chelsea went in we were out of the picture. Players come for money.

    • mattspurs January 9, 2017 at 3:52 pm

      Where do you get all this stuff from? Do you just sew together all the bits of rumour and tittle tattle to suit your agenda?

      In terms of a timeline:
      29th June – Dembele signs for Celtic on a free
      29th june – Palace have a £33m bid accepted for Batshuayi
      3rd July – Batshuyai signs for Chelsea
      12 July – Spurs sign Janssen after lots of transfer fee haggling

      That timeline would suggest that Dembele had decided he wanted to go to Celtic way before any decision had been set about Janssen

      Now not being funny but I’m not sure Paul Mitchell was employed to tell us to bid on a player who half the premier league were aware of and tried to sign – and to go head to head with Chelsea in a bidding war. Surely Mitchell’s value lies in unearthing gems – looking at the ‘moneybag’ data and seeing talent in the undervalued? Everybody on here knows that Batshuyai was decent.

    I see Shearer point too. Yes Janssen also has the get more aggressive and a deeper version of determined

  • Shocked January 9, 2017 at 2:30 pm

    I think poch’s priority is the title knowing we have got to play Liverpool means we are still in control of finishing 2nd, that just leaves Chelsea who control their own destiny still, but there’s a slip up in them still,
    Chelsea have still got to go to WBA away
    Everton away bogey team
    Burnley away good home record
    Stoke away
    Manu away
    Leicester away
    Liverpool away
    West Ham away
    Bournemouth away
    Stoke away
    Arsenal home
    City home

    It’s certainly not over

      Personally I don’t care if we win the league or not as much as us produce the kind of quality every week that demonstrates we can win the league.
      We need to manage our bench better and so bringing players in is seamless. That’s getting the standard up and working them better.
      Im glad we didn’t win the league last season. Its best we win it with the quality it deserves and we deserve

      • Arcane January 9, 2017 at 3:00 pm

        Totally agree and have the same feeling. If it’s going to last it has to be done right. But, that will require Levy to shell out properly for the last pieces in the puzzle. To hang on hopefully until we can get the quality we need in cheaply, is to risk wrecking the whole project – because our great core, of cheaply acquired talent will not stay that long, and shouldn’t be expected to – the clock is ticking on them.

        Levy failed in the summer, we’ll see if he can do something this time, but if he fails again next summer window the opportunity will be lost I think. The players and Poch himself will start to look elsewhere.

        Having waited 50 years I would have preferred to win it

          Taff concurs with this sentiment.

      I like the cut of your jib, Shocked. As you say, Chelski have the ability to slip up and the wheels come off. It’s all great when its going well, but then suddenly a defeat, Terry liggging around like a bad smell…who knows, they could lose their mojo. A long way to go, for sure and suddenly we’ve put a little pressure on, just when we’re finding our rhythm in the League.

    Gotta laugh at 30 mil for Sissy, & the one area we really needed the mney spent we cheap out on, great logic there. I feel for Janssen & still hold out hope as he’s playing fine at international level, who knows. Yesterday was a waste of time for him tho, really set the lad up to fail there. & no Voodoo, found that a joke too.

    • Ronwol196061 January 9, 2017 at 2:30 pm

      In the training they should replay the Janssen situation using NK and Edward’s if he us fit and keeping the CB’s tight to Janssen. There is an answer there and they can work on it.
      I get the feeling Poch throws him out there and it’s sink or swim

    • Shocked January 9, 2017 at 2:33 pm

      I think sissy has been better than lamela was in his first 6 months, 30m because he was a euro star arguably better than pogba in that tourney and also classed as in his prime at 27 or 8

      • McG ⚽⚽ January 9, 2017 at 3:47 pm

        My point was we didnt really need him at 30 mil, a striker we did.

  • Ronwol196061 January 9, 2017 at 2:24 pm

    GNK is the supply
