on paper we look strong. on the pitch we look like a steaming pile of cack, and have done for about 8 months now
----------------------------------------------------------------------
It'll pick up now
----------------------------------------------------------------------
I dont get why everyone keeps saying this ? Theres clearly a CL defeat hangover. Wer have made 3 new signings who have made a combined total of 2 starts, we have been crap for 9 months, the stadium has made no impact and all the contract issues are unresolved. I hopeful of a pick up but in no way expecting one. Instead of Poch grumbling about instability we now are likely to have players frustrated that they didn't get their moves...Eg. Eriksen & Rose
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Im confused - have we been crap for the last 9 months or were we fine before the CL final and now we're suffering a hangover?

Last season our squad was fundamentally flawed which led to consistently poor performances.

Picking up points whilst playing as poorly as we were playing is unsustainable, so towards the end of the season the wheels fell off.

We have *theoretically* addressed the major cause for the poor performances by signing two 50 million pound midfielders.

When your issues come down to personnel, and those issues require new personnel, and new players need time, you have to give it time.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
I don't disagree... all I'm saying is that I don't think things are all "roses" now the window has closed and we have an Intl break. I don't know that GLC & NDombele are gonna be amazing signings, & will Sessegnon prove he can cut it in the Prem ? As for the rest, the defense is getting older and most of the attackers can be wildly inconsistent as proven by their ability to win the big game over the past few years...... We'll see... Fingers crossed

I think a scruffy 1-0 win Vs Palace is far more likely than some 5-0 Drubbing ...... We aint City or Liverpool
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Great point, they will be defending deep so will we be able to break them down????

Plus we don't seem to be able to keep clean sheets like we did a while back

Glad to see you've changed your tune

Totally agreed. We have to be patient.

It won't be that long before Lo Celso and Ndombele start adding massive differences to our chances of top 4, and I predict by mid Nov we shall start reaping some rewards and most likely be in a healthy state by the time, the business ends starts for this season.

The one item on the agenda is getting Eriksen/Toby/Verts to sign and for that we need to revise what's been offered to them and offer them a deal that would suit them and us

Maybe not in so many words, but you did join the chorus of people who were moaning about our signings not hitting the ground running and moaning why others, mainly Arsenal have bought players who are already playing, yet Lo Celso isn't.

That is for me same as saying that our signings don't need time and being impatient. I am not havong a go but I welcome your last comment.

We forget how much our club has to deal with, not least the inequality in richness between us, Chelsea, City, United and even Liverpool. They all have sufficient ability to go out and spend and spend. Spurs have risen from almost nothing to challenge them and thus we need to be patient. In five years of charge, Spurs have established top 4 solidly - the one of two sides to be in top 4 for 5 years running , other than City, and Spurs have achieved at least semi-finals on most than one occasion and a final of CL.

When we played the C L final, it was one between those who spent crazy amount in transfer market, and those who hardly spent anything. Now that we have the stadium worthy of the team, we can start looking at refreshing the side and start getting into finals and hopefully winning things. Spurs have been doing it the right way - while others have taken shortcuts to glory.

Ndombele will make a massive difference....place him in the 2 or 3 promising positions that Sisokko found himself in at the weekend and you'll expect much better quality than the panic of Sisokko.

Literally none of that is true

How can a signing hit the ground running being injured/in 2 games/3 sub appearances


Morespurs is something else
