The truth about Gareth Bale & Dele Alli vs Leeds United And Some Lucas Moura Love | video
By Harry Hotspur -

Losing to Leeds United did not fit in with our every remaining game is a cup-final narrative. Not because we merely lost that game, but because we played with even less belief, less conviction than we did in an actual cup final against Manchester City.

Dele Alli and Gareth Bale we were told to have been horrendously overlooked by the Portuguese Pulis. Jamie Redknapp couldn’t believe just how full of Internationals Tottenham were.

Leeds away is actually where we were, where we still are, my friends.

I think it’s possible to despair that neither of these players are worth holding onto while simultaneously being of the view that Mourinho was an appointment that made absolutely no sense and proved to be even worse than anticipated.

The truth is neither should be in a Spurs shirt come the new season. We really have to have Kevin McCloud or Sarah Beenie (possibly both) involved at the club as we need an extensive re-build of playing, coaching and technical staff involving every department. If Kane stays I will be amazed. I love the guy but I thought he should have left well before now. I saw what was happening to the Club before Dembele left, lots of us did, so I admire his loyalty to the Club, but if he doesn’t win any significant trophies he has only himself and his agent to blame. Would his transfer fee be spent wisely? History tells us not. We have spaffed more than most up a wall.

I know selling 12 players is unheard of, but we need rid of all the shysters and blaggers as soon as possible. They are serving us no good whatsoever. The Leeds game tells us that. And the Zagreb game. And the Arsenal game, I could go on and on. Levy won’t of course do this, because he wants to squeeze the last penny out of every deal. He would rather a player leave for £16 million at the last minute than sell them for £30 million the year before, because he feels the player is worth £40m!

Having an argument over selling 4 different players is futile. Whether it is Dele, Dier, Sanchez and Aurier; or Lamela, Davies, Toby and Doherty, or Ndom, Lo Celso, Sessy and Bergwijn, it all basically means all 12 are not good enough. And we need another keeper! Keeping players because they are squad players should only be brought in to the equation if they are any good. Do players offer us something on the pitch or coming on from the bench. Good teams have valid options, we do not. We start by getting rid of Bale and the Brazilian Janssen!

Sigh. Never thought I’d have to agree with an old man who looks like a hairy tomato. But damn it. You’re right. And I’m toast.

For whatever reason or reasons, possibly only known to Bale, he goes missing in alternate games, could be when playing better opposition and that certainly never used to the case. However, I’ve always been disgusted by the Spanish media and fans targeting Bale when, if you want to play the blame game, other players were just as much if not more to blame, Ronaldo for example and he was getting paid more than Bale, defeating the argument that Bale was blamed more because of his high salary. Kane didn’t exactly shine against Leeds yet the only talk about him was whether or not he’d remain at the club. I’ve long believed that much of the excessive criticism Bale received in Spain could be put down to racism on their part. Do Spurs fans want behave like the Spanish?

Bale is being criticized because he’s been pretty woeful for us this season. I don’t think it has anything to do with race. Comments like that need to be properly thought through before being committed to cyberspace.

Are you gareths mother or something really. Have you really watched bale this year. Trying the Google test on his goals for us this year. How many did he score against top teams. This guy is getting paid a king and Queens ransom. This is not hate not even m&s hate this is just turn up and put some real effort in from the fans. The sooner he gets to go back to Spain the better for all because he can’t cut it anymore.

Our players seem to see it as challenge to lower the bar even further when they put in a bad performance. Think that was bad ? Hold my beer.

Leeds showed us you can take a group of rather average players and make them play way above their level – that is, if there is a game plan, teamwork and a willingness to work hard. We currently have none of that. Our defending was at times completely laughable – I wouldn’t have most of our defenders in my amateur five-a-side team.

Loved the sheer exasperation after “I’ve just been through the goals”. Must have been an ordeal.

Average … really !!! Messier-best keeper in the prem. Harrison – becoming one of the best wingers, Phillips – goes without saying. Dallas = sublime, Raphina- seems he’s on very teams shopping list. Could go on. Average … ha!
Then we have Bielsa … apparently everyone wants him at the top of Spurs shopping list.
Not a cat in hells chance.
One of the big six … I think not.

The league table states you are average. Spurs have 2 top, top players. Leeds have, according to you, 5. If anything you are underperforming, especially if you are behind Spurs, because we have been woeful for over 2 years now.

If you think Meslier is the best in the PL you could at least spell his name correctly.

I think he is very promising,but he is certainly not the best.His distribution is poor at times and his decision making particularly on coming for crosses is suspect.

He culd be very good in future but has a way to go yet.

They play as a team just as we did 3 / 4 years ago when we were punching above our weight in the league

I could not believe how bad we were against Leeds . I would be hard pressed to name more than two Leeds players but they played us off the park with desire, motivation and speed. I thought that the performances of Bale, Alli, Reguillon and particularly Dier were horrendous. I think the whole team needs selling.

Can you imagine how long it would take for our supremo to sell the WHOLE team while trying to extract the maximum sale – and more – for each player? It would take years! Doesn’t bear thinking about.

Leeds Utd are a side that plays for their manager, whereas we are a bunch of overpaid wasters that play for money, when they feel like it.

When I heard Ryan say the last five games were our Cup Finals my heart sank.. We haven’t scored a goal in the last three finals we’ve been in.

I’ve just been thinking that people at Spurs really shouldn’t be using this cliche – I’ve seen us only in those three finals and we were awful in all of them.

Can’t imagine Ramos – another serial winner on the pitch – putting up with the lazy Bale or Deli displays. Maybe Zidane was right after all.

Although Real Madrid were outclassed by Chelsea, Modric at 35 was all over the pitch…playing nice passes, tackling, tracking back…. there is no way despite being several years younger Bale is getting back into that team….

Total lack of professionalism given the eye-watering wages we are paying him.

He was 100% right about Bale. My worry is that he was right about Reguillon as well.

hopefully Reg just lost some confidence as he looks to have potential and does seem to try hard even when he’s playing badly.
