“Tottenham do not have options they feel they can rely on” Journalist highlights major issue facing Spurs
By Bruce Grove -

Tottenham has lost Harry Kane to an ankle injury, and the Lilywhites will likely suffer for it.

The Englishman has been their main goalscorer for years now and he has now formed a deadly partnership with Son Heung-min.

Both players have scored most of Tottenham’s goals in this campaign, and losing either isn’t something that the club appear to have prepared for.

For the first time this season, they will be without Kane for a long period, and Sports Mail’s Ian Ladyman says that they will struggle in the absence of the Englishman.

Writing is his column on Daily Mail after Tottenham’s 3-1 loss to Liverpool, he said that Kane and Son are one of the most dangerous attacking duos in Europe, but they have no replacements in the team.

Now that Kane is injured, figuring out who can step up as a replacement will not be an easy task, because there are really no other options that they can rely on.

He writes: “Kane and Son are among the most dangerous and exhilarating attacking duos in Europe. The Korean is now at elite level.

“But Kane’s half-time withdrawal with yet another ankle injury exposed a lack of depth and the absence of any other way to hurt teams. Tottenham do not have options they feel they can rely on. Bale has been a huge disappointment since his return from Spain while players like Lucas Moura and Steven Bergwijn exist on a rung or two further down the ladder.”

Mourinho should be managing teams boton half of the table,his tactics like teams fighting relegation,blame Aurier for the first goal,so what Eric Dier and loris was up 2,they left the ball to firmino

Why buy Vinicius if you aren’t going to use him when needed? he’s obviously not good enough which says he was a buy to keep the fans quiet. Start buying quality of bugger off. Simple.

Also why do Bale loan deal if you are not going to play him?
Jose’s treatment of Alli, team selection and subs is quite bizarre??
The only positive is Rodon?

Bruising night David. What makes it ten times worse is that Burnley and Southampton beat Liverpool, they weren’t in great form and were missing so many top players and they still duffed us up. I didn’t fancy us going into the game, too many average players sadly.

Well whose fault is that? It’s not as if we only realised last night that we needed a proven striker to replace an injured Harry Kane.

We also know Mourinho wanted a top centre back last summer. Whose job was it to provide that. Chickens coming home to roost.

Levy is Enic. Enic is a cancer to Spurs. Levy is a cancer to Spurs. Invest properly in the players or fuck off. In fact just fuck off now.

Nope. They said you have to make your own money. We are. Bought for £25mill now worth 2 billion. Best of everything. Hardly cancer. They ain’t fans they’re buisness men. They owe us nothing.

The clue is in the name. We ate Tottenham Hotspur FOOTBALL Club. Without the team it’s a shopping centre and concert venue. Invest in the team or ship out. We’ve had enough.

Best of everything except for the players. The only thing the fans care a jot about.

Do you wish it was only for football too?
Do you think them shops you see with a man selling and fixing phones at the front want him to be there? You do know football is a buisness right?
