Spurs’ Starting XI vs Mighty Mura
By Ron Carne -

Mura are playing for little more than pride as they can no longer finish in the top two of UEFA Europa Conference League Group G following a harsh introduction to continental group stage football (L4). While unlikely, a third-place finish is still possible, but they must win their remaining two matches, starting with this one against Tottenham Hotspur, who hammered them 5-1 on matchday two.

As the curtain falls on their ‘home’ European campaign (they host UECL games in Maribor), Mura is winless in six competitive matches (D3, L3 – 90 minutes), including a brace of UECL defeats to Rennes.

They have at least found the net before half-time in each of their last four home fixtures (W1, D2, L1 – 90 minutes) so could be dangerous early on.

That might give Tottenham cause for concern, as they’ve conceded an average of one first-half goal per game (W2, D1) since Antonio Conte took charge.

That unbeaten run has seen them showcase battling qualities, including coming from behind against Leeds United on Sunday (W 2-1), a trait that might stand them in good stead as they battle to secure a top-two finish in the group.

While victory here would be enough if Rennes also wins against Vitesse Arnhem, a slip-up could see ‘Spurs’ entering matchday six needing a result against Rennes.

The most abysmal display yet and by this time that really is saying something. The only positive is that Conte now knows that most of that team in the first half have to go. They are beyond useless and have been all season. Fire sale absolutely essential as players like Deli, Docherty and Sanchez are just getting worse with each performance. Sessegnon was a mistake as was Gil. The recruitment has been truly awful.

I’m watching this game and I just had the thought, I seriously wouldn’t keep one of them if I had the option. They are so bad.

I think they will even it up and have one sent off the way they are making tackles.

There goes our 25M man. But given his history at Spurs, getting 31 minutes out of him is surely an improvement!

Dele needs giving away to some chumps in non-league football. Wouldn’t get on the Mura team.

Anyone watching – how is Doherty doing getting forward and causing problems with his crosses into Kane?

I think he is causing problems for levy who is wondering what he will do with him in January.

Doherty is genuinely awful. Haven’t seen a duller player probably.

None of the second string doing themselves any favours .
The amount of money on that pitch that can’t kick a ball ,shocking really.

“Conte’s learning a lot about this group.”

Oof. Wouldn’t want to be in their shoes at HT, unless something changes, fast.

Being given the run around by another pub side. We have no cohesion. All kick and rush.

Sanchez, I wonder if “…I prefer to kill him” applies

Sanchez has a habit of falling over, like last season, why ?
I thought he had changed his skis.

Its a team selection that does not know each other, but it should still provide a winning formula.

According to footballdatabase.com Mura is ranked #630 in the world. We are #46. Should be a real barn-burner against these farmers.
