    Spurs should have scored there. Clear chance.

    Absolutely this. Plus I said in the summer the defence was not good enough and Lindeloff alone was nowhere near going to fix it. Now Maureen doesn’t even play Lindeloff so that’s no additions to the defence and a long standing completely ignored. To make it worse Maureen would rather play an old average winger in Ashley Young over a young solid LB in Luke Shaw. That’s in addition to everything that’s bad about the back four.

    Talk about the midfield.. on Sunday we are 1-0 down away from home and what does Maureen do? Brings on the ghost of Micheal Carrick who’s older than the bible and Scott McTominay a kid who will be playing in the championship in a couple more years.
    And that was Maureen’s answer.

    Absolutely bloody absurd. He’s had 4 transfer windows and spent a few hundred million yet there are gaping problems lacking quality and long term solutions all over the park. Our midfield is so bloody flimsy it’s absolutely shocking.

    And why does he persist with this dire 4-2-3-1 formation that blatantly doesn’t work? Is Maureen a cock or what mate?

    The Sanchez signing as exciting as it sounds wasn’t exactly necessary and I’d put money on it not working out.

    Buffon not at his best there.

    2-2 and Juve aren't really offering much.

    Everyone talks about Kane and Alli but every time I watch spurs Dembele and Eriksen are the real ones who make them tick. Demble was pure class yesterday.

    Every time I watch Alli he loses the ball at least 5 times a match.

    Alii had that one good season and started to believe his own hype.

    He’s been nothing special since. Barca won’t be calling anytime soon I shouldn’t imagine.

    Very true, man.

    Dembele is a fuckin beautiful player to watch. One of those guys who seem to always play at a leisurely pace. Seems to fly under the radar though.
