Is there a Dr. Tottenham in the house? [opinion]

By Harry Hotspur -

Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, on paper, is doing just fine, thank you very much. What cannot speak cannot lie, and the Premier League table tells us we are 3rd, as opposed to second only because of goal difference, and that we are still competing in the world’s finest club tournament, the Champions League.

Beyond what is undoubtedly a veneer of respectability, we have the reality that Antonio Conte is struggling with the resources provided, even after a transfer window that was mindlessly lauded by many sections of the football press. This is, of course, down to the fact that the press officer told multiple individuals that multiple transfers were on the cards and so the least wordly reporters hurrar’d each deal as it was announced as done, without analysis, with a thought.

Fast-forward to a few games in, and we have Conte breaking it to the same sea lions that for him, and his coaching staff, the situation is not ideal. Djed Spence has been straightforwardly outed as a club purchase, and we are now told that Yves Bissouma is having problems getting his head around the tactical aspects of Tottenham’s game.

The superstar signing Richarlison is getting minutes, but one cannot help but feel this is more by fortune than design, as Heung Son-Min has been in atrocious form by his own standards, and the feeling amongst most supporters who express their views online, is that Spurs have been a very tough watch this season.

Quality of play has been an issue, the expected goal numbers are at record lows, and the construction play in the main tends to be limited to Spurs having a go when on the break, so no breaks, no goes.

The absence of a specific creative player in the middle of the park was pointed out early on by some, and now most fans are very much worried about our midfield. Pierre Emile Hojbjerg has borne the brunt of much frustration, but that’s primarily because too many fans don’t understand the role of a holding midfielder. Tragic, but true.

Spurs face Leicester City today, and it is a tie all set up to go one way or another. Redemption for the awkward Lilywhites, or patch-up job for the patient, courtesy of Dr. Tottenham. Only a brave man would want to call it.

Not playing great, still winning football matches, how long can this go on for?

Sonny: 2 outstanding strikes, but 3rd was a poor finish that went in, and the rest of his play wasn’t great – not sure he’s fully turned the corner just yet.

Sanchez: a classic “just when you thought maybe he’s ok he goes and does that” sort of game – would rather see Tanganga as backup, have a feeling we might do next.

This formation is a problem when Benti is off his passing game. It means we (usually) have a midfield of Benti/Hoj with Perisic and Royale pushing up – there’s very little vision here.

Would love to see what Spence has to offer, I’m sure I read he’s only 6 months younger than Royale – but we are screaming out for a James Ward Prowse style quarterback to support the front 3

Our midfield has zero vision, it’s probably why we grind results out.

Bit more positive than others..ended up with a 3 man midfield which personally I think we needed .as prior to that we seemed happy to defend on our 18 yd line with our midfield and defence bumping into each other. Conte also benched Son and made more substitutions more quickly which I thought benefitted the team . I think these lessons need to be adopted. Leicester dominated for too long in this game Sess looked poor in defence and I simply do not get Royal at any level whatsoever. As HH says he cost Barca 7.5 mil and 2+months later we paid £ 25 mil …and Barca PUBLICLY TOOK THE P#SS OUT OF THFC after the deal was completed ..the man is chaos ..I don’t want him to be he just is.

I would have preferred Emerson at RB over Davinson Sanchez, he is quite good covering that position. I think Sanchez has enough ability but seems to make decisions under pressure that also put the team under pressure. If Sanchez can find a way to stay alert but relaxed during matches, so that he can remain confident and calm when called to action, he could still become a reliable or even a great defender.

Ignore the hubris machine. Barca are just deflecting. They have made so many ludicrous deals because they thought they were untouchable. They don’t have the right to take the p#ss out of anyone tbf.

The best thing about having to change up the team like that is now Conte will see there are other formations that can still deliver results. We shouldn’t let other teams have the ball when we are at home – absolutely no need for that nonsense.

The higher press was the key, Conte really has to accept that the way he sets us up to not not press high naturally and allow the opposition so much of the ball can’t be allowed to happen as often as it does, Bentancur was much more effective pressing higher.

Our defense is poor. Bentancur is awful, and Sess got utterly schooled on their second. Didn’t see “Patron’s” pen offense, but I can imagine that conceding a penalty in the first five minutes isn’t exactly the ideal springboard for a sound defensive performance.

So many easy passes are going wrong for us, it’s actually embarrassing.

Leicester are so bad defending set pieces that we should get another one or two in the second half regardless of what we create from open play, but I’m beginning to feel uneasy. We seem to have no confidence.

It’s not just that we’re an uncomfortable watch, it’s that we are an uncomfortable club to support in general. Always skirting around the precipice of loss, only a fraction of an inch away from toppling in like Jose and Nuno did. Edgy, uncomfortable games characterised by feelings of anxiety and lucky escapes rather than joy and true victory. A mercurial and volatile coach. A squad unsuited to the dogmatic 343 desires of the manager. And a chairman, flanked by spin-doctors, drip feeding us misdirection dope. I just can’t help but feel like that meme dog sitting there while his house burns saying “This is fine”. Well guess what folks, there’s an emperor called Tottenham Hotspur Football Club and his tailor is called Levy. The emperor still ain’t got no clothes.

I reckon some of those club affiliated trouble makers come on here, (actually quite regularly) posing as fans just wanting to engage in discussion. Ready to spill out their ‘passion’, yet just trying to construct a narrative that all is fine and dandy in Levyland. Their blind spot to the realities of the present is often so staggeringly entrenched and as a result, quite often bordering on the sinister. I’m convinced that they’re sent here as it’s a blog with many dissenting voices when it comes to all things ENIC.

They’re probably on all the social media platforms too trying to nullify any unrest. So easy to see through, that it’s laughable…

Only reason the team are third is the fixture list, even when City loomed for a proper test Levy comes up sucking a tit again with a national period of “mourning”.

May as well start the superleague cos they’ve killed the premier league in any kind of competitive sporting capacity. Just saw City 2 up in 15 minutes….AGAIN…..game over before fans have sat down with their halloumi salads….utterly pointless.

No wonder Levy is such an advocate of the SL idea. It would ‘ring fence’ and ensure the long term stability to their asset value. Without ever needing to win anything. or get relegated…

Pierre has played 86 out of a possible 87 games.. Never injured.. An absolute warrior with heart.. We need more players like him and Richy..
Again our big players let us down going forward.. Kane and Sonny have always gone missing in Europe, big games and finals.. It must be a mentality thing.
Our apparent ‘achievement’ in recent years was getting to the CL final.. Kane was injured and Sonny achieved very little during that run to the final.

As much as I love PEH’s attitude, despite the effort he has also come up short in some big fixtures. Mainly to do with his lack of versatility, that doesn’t mean he’s a bad player, just not a complete midfielder.

I wonder if Sonny and Harry are a bit put out by the spectacular form of Haaland.

On present form and if Erling stays injury free Sonny and Harry have won their last Golden boots.

Harry might be looking at Man City and thinking that could have been me, banging in the goals and pocketing £375.000 a week plus a whopping signing on fee, and with trophies guaranteed.

It will be interesting to see if Harry does sign a contract extension.

I doubt he will sign a new contract particularly as it looks increasingly likely that the Juve position will be vacated for Conte.Losing all three in the summer doesn’t bare thinking about.

The only extension Harry will be signing is for an extra year at BM after his original 2 years is up.

Well H, against a Leicester team looking like a large Swiss cheese defensively and with morale at rock bottom, this is on the face of it a chance to ‘fill our boots’ with a deluge of goals and set Sonny on the race for the ‘Golden Stud’! (as obviously Haaland is a shoo-in for this season’s ‘Golden Boot’!).

Alternatively we can expect a desperately laboured 1-0 victory, as we play like a team of zombies on Mogadon, with a creative capability that would make Carlton Palmer look like prime Gazza! Take your pick! However, as Harry Kane seems to have a perennial personal vendetta against Leicester, I will take the optimistic view and go for a 3-1 victory.
