Video: Roy Keane admits he was “angry” watching Spurs failing to do the “basics” against Chelsea
By Mark Brus -

Roy Keane isn’t one to mince his words, and he was clearly far from impressed with what he saw from Spurs in the 3-0 home defeat to Chelsea on Sunday.

The former Manchester United captain slammed Tottenham’s failure to do the “basics” against Chelsea, criticising the second half capitulation and the body language of some of the players as they didn’t work hard enough for the result.

Keane says it made him “pretty angry” watching Spurs, and you can see that from his analysis in the video clip below…

Keane is far from the only one who will have been annoyed, with Spurs really collapsing in their last two games after initially making such a solid start to the new campaign.

Our line up for the Chavs game was probably our strogest team currently.However the bench was threadbare with only two attacking players available in Gil and Scarlett.

I think Gil is a bit lightweight at the moment and Scarlett would have got nothing out of their back three.I guess bringing Sanchez on was an admission of defeat.

The rot stems from Levy and ENIC, that much is abundantly clear.
But now, to confound matters, we have a head coach who clearly is way out of his depth and has no ideas. He didn’t use his third sub during the dross against Palace, and with 7 minutes to go and 2-0 down against Chelsea, he subs a centre half for a centre half.
Game management is absolutely shocking.
We will be on the hunt for a new manager by Christmas, if not sooner.

It comes from the top all right. If the Chairman hasn’t enough faith in the team to invest in it properly is it any wonder the players say to themselves, well if he can’t be bothered why should we.

I just don’t know what direction this club is going in, because all the signs are that those in control have either lost the plot or have no idea what they are doing or where they are going.
This then cascades down into the dressing room creating an unhealthy atmosphere and putting doubt in players minds, resulting in a lack of confidence and belief in each other that shows up where it matters most, the field of play.
There is a distinct possibility that this is the situation here now at the club, with the likelyhood of there being a certain evel of uncertainty amongst long serving players, new players and more, which includes the current manager.
The doom and gloom atmosphere that surrounds this club is slowly killing it, and the media thrive on that, and it sickens me.

This is what annoyed me the most, we basically gave up when the second goal went in. As Roy rightly says, no desire, no pressing, nobody prepared to put their body on the line.

Men against boys is right. It’s a collective mentality that is of one not of winners, not truly bothered about losing, indeed, resigned to it.

Kane, Son, Hojberg, Lloris… all captains of their countries for gods sake, they should be showing some leadership and leading the fight. Look at Keane’s old teammates, lets not even start to compare the quality, but Neville, Becks, Scholes, Giggs, Schmeichel, the list could go on, but EVERY last player under Ferguson knew to never give up. It comes from the top.

Nuno loses the next 2 games and Levy will be under pressure to do something about it.
