Video Evidence: A truly bizarre performance from Japhet Tanganga

By Harry Hotspur -

Above are all of Tanganga’s passes. All 6 of them. There are players that are more involved who are on the park for half the time the 22-year-old was on the pitch …which was 59-minutes.

For context, Japhet attempted 23 passes in an hour against Crystal Palace on 11.09.2021.

The only heat on Japhet Tanaganga was when he committed a foul in the 37th minute and picked up a yellow card.

There are genuine grounds to be concerned about this young man.

Completely off topic …. Spoke to a football colleague this evening who has very close links to the club. We are apparently in for four players. Traore is definitely one of them. Of these 4 targets two are proving to be a bit more difficult but they, the club have second choices should the first not work out. Lastly, it’s not the club waiting to the last minute. It’s the clubs of the players we are pursuing who are holding things up.

DON’T shoot the messenger

He’ll be one of the few interested in Spurs if Conté resigns. Joy.

He doesn’t have the wherewithal as a defender, there are too many mistakes in his game.

Japhet is still learning the basics of the game and the Premier League is not the place to do that.

Japhet is 22, he is not a baby. TAA, Reece James and Tariq Lamptey are all of a similar age and are excelling. He keeps repeating the same mistakes and I wonder is he lacking a bit of football intelligence. He may be very fast in a straight line but he gets left for dead on the turn. He hasn’t been the same player since the very bad back injury last season. It’s a pity but at the moment it’s difficult to see him getting to the top.

I’d like him to focus on one position on the park..instead of being used all over.

There is clearly a talent in him. Jose clearly saw something in him defensively and did try to make am effort with him.

3 managers and 3 different positions in that time possibly hasn’t helped he’s cause.

I think a loan move upto Scotland to celtic or as much as I hate rangers, would be a great benefit. Going to a team where its about winning and having that bit of pressure with that applied, should help with character and consistency. I know the quality in the league isn’t there, but playing in front of passionate and demanding fans would be a great benefit in the long run.

I wouldn’t sell him just yet, he’s someone who wants to be at the club, and atleast he gives effort and wants to do well.

Tanganga had an excellent debut against Liverpool and he had an equally good game against Manchester City, on the first day of the season, when he marked Raheem Stirling out of the game. Tanganga has strength, pace and aggression. At times he has made errors in his play and errors of judgement. Against Palace his sending off cost Spurs the game and was the beginning of the end for Nuno.

The mistakes in the first leg of the League Cup semi final have sent the lad into a spin. Tanganga has played less than 30 games for Tottenham.

Tanganga is a rookie being asked to do a seasoned pro’s job. That is not his fault. He is on his third Tottenham manager in less than 12 months. 3 different voices, lots of changed tactics and plenty of different partners in defence. If he had been dipped in and out of a settled back four would the outcome have been better? Of course it would. He has also had injuries.

I will not kick this man while he is down. He has been exposed to a truck load of nonsense in his short career and probably deserves better. I hope he gets a loan and another chance further down the road.

The excuses you apply to Tanganga also apply to N’Dombele. I bet you’d be quick enough to kick him when he’s down.

Ndombele is always down… that’s the trouble.

I can give you 65 million reasons why I would not stick up for N’dombele but I will simply state that he is the most unprofessional and unfit player I have ever seen representing THFC and I have watched some chaff since 77.

Adebayor runs him close

Adebayor scored 42 in 113 for Spurs. I don’t think he comes close to N’dombele in terms of letting himself and Spurs down.

It’s a photo finish between Rose and Adebayor then Ndombele.

It’s evident that Tanganga isn’t a Premiership quality player and I’m unsure why Conte can’t see that, as he’s been played in most of the ‘crucial’ games??
He’s a red card or serious injury to an opponent waiting to happen in every game.
Sale would be preferable but failing that, a loan to a Championship side for a couple of seasons to see if can improve.

In the beginning I thought we’d unearthed a real gem. Sadly it’s not happening for young Japhet.

My view is a loan spell similar to that of Skipp. Learn more about the role away from the glare of the PL. Norwich will most likely get relegated. We have a good relationship with them so ideal for him to go there.

Agreed 2-3 games last season he looked good, but has regressed since… think he needs a run of games…doesn’t offer much going forward tho

Needs time away from the club..I agree Norwich on loan..Bournemouth maybe they could do with some shoring up.
