Rubbish Performance in a Final - Again

Page 1 of 2

posted on 26/4/21

As good as City were, I thought they were there for the taking with all the missed chances. Spurs on a better day could have won it - similar to your CLfinal in fact.

Chronic, we have been talking about this for years. When it truly matters, this club never bring it over the line. They never win trophies when it matters. They never jump the last hurdle. They let the supporters down every single time. Moussa Sissoko is now the reason why we have lost both our last finals. C**

3 trophies since 1991, is an absolute disgrace considering that we have been prem ever presents and had world class talent in the side almost EVERY single season since then...
====================

Some good points, Chronic

Though I am less worried about the trophy haul as much as I am in the gutless performances that I see this team in big games.
If you watch City, they played well but they also played dirty and cynical game. Every attack we mounted was halted by their players, fouling, pulling or pushing our players.
Our players didn't have a fight in them and were very much trying to get through the game as quickly as possible.

This habit of pointing at your teammates, so you don't get given the ball and don't have to take responsibilities, is the most cowardly act any player can commit in a match.

Sissoko was full of pointing fingers and yet when he needed to be strong and brave in that crucial header that led to the goal, he was like a paper, collapse under the weight of Laporte.

Some of out players are stealing a living.
Gutless and cowards.

Liverpool didnt show up in the CL final.. they didnt need to... because they were playing spurs and there was no danger whatsoever of us turning up.

going in at 0-0 yesterday, and the better start we made from 45 - 60 mins... we were well in the game... yet we created virtually nothing as our big players didnt show up, and our manager got the subs wrong, and in true spurs style we let in poor goal at the other end and had no spine whatsoever to mount a recovery.

Just a meh football club. Around to make up the numbers.

You have to ask yourself also why sack a manager with experience with 6 days to go and have a total noob in charge?

Was Levy trying to avoid the situation of if Jose had won the trophy and achieved his brief, and be "unsackable"? Was this just yet another game Levy was player that backfired, like sacking of Poch?

* Levy was playing

I called it before the game. Kane was a complete waste of a shirt and you should have started Bale.

Kane is a player that plays for himself, repeatedly lets Spurs and England down in the big games.

Just read Son has signed a new contract but the club are waiting before annoucing. No wonder he was crying yday. Such a weak player.

Actually hoping the news is not true.

As for us lot. This squad is mess. Jose reportedly wanted to transfer out 10 players in the summer but Levy disagreed.

Imagine if he says to the new manager Winks and Dele have to stay. I mean what actual funk?!

I have a bad feeling the new manager will not be allowed to do a massive overhaul of the squad and maybe 4 or players will be allowed to leave at most.

Players like Dier, Winks and Dele will be allowed to stay to further continue to poison the squad.

Up the Spurs hey :-|

Maybe he sacked Jose before because if he won a trophy he would have to pay full compensation. Pay extra 15m or win the Carabao. What do you think Levy would choose?

Klinsmann Sheringham Anderton Ferdinand Ginola Campbell King Davids Bale Modric Eriksen Dembele Kane Toby A Verts Lloris VDV Defoe Berbatov Carrick Walker Rose Son Moura Lennon

just some of the names that have played for this club over the last however many years.. and have put virtually fack all in the cabinet.

rubbish

Kane was largely decent yesterday, I don’t really know if people understand football - a player can play ok if they aren’t running channels or scoring goals

posted on 26/4/21

I think Sissoko was brought on because Bale was brought on, Aurier needed some help and Bale does not track back well enough, so the solution was meant be Sissoko, unfortunately Sissoko is so bad that it just invited more pressure and inevitable conceding of a goal.

No doubt spurs social media team will make this a huge thing. A complete embarrassment. I don’t want to hear about contracts ffs and Moussa Sissoko making 200 appearances. I want to win f**$ trophies!!! How hard is that to achieve ffs?

sissoko is an incredibly limited footballer, but he doesnt select himself. in my opinion he t ries his hardest.. he just offers nothing. therefore the blame lies with those selecting him.

HOW HOW HOW was bringing sissoko into that game when we were searching for a goal the right move????!!!!! with ndombele on the bench??????

whats going on?

yeah, he's known with us Spurs fans as the tight baldy

We should sue Jose Mourinho when he joined us he said he'd change the mentality of some players to make them winners!

He obviously underestimated how bad the likes of Sissoko are!

he was clearly not fit. im not really blaming him, we cant go into games against top sides with passengers... if anything bring him off the bench.

against city you cant stand off them, you have to close them.. presses have to start from the front or they dont really work... as you will always have the out ball... with kane unfit and unable to do so we ended with the first half which we saw..

same happened in the cl final.. where again Kane wasnt fit.

Nothing will change until we get new owners, the one common factor in our miserable existence is ENIC, Lewis and Levy. I have been saying it for years, they have no interest in making us trophy winners, they just want to see CL and profits.

They have had numerous opportunities to push us on from promising positions to possibly win things, and have stood still every single fackin time, the balance sheet is king where ENIC are concerned.

20 years of these clowns is more than enough, I had enough of them years ago, and will not be spending another penny on Spurs until things change or they fack off out of it.

When asked by Ali G after the game about Ndombele's absence, Masoninho dodged the question. Wow.

The players don't really have the hunger anymore. Look at their attitude under both Poch and Jose aside from good pros like Kane, Son, Hugo theres not much going on they are all comfortable financially for the rest of their lives why bother pressing the opposition.
City can continue to perform as they have hired the best manager in the world and are able to update their squad like football manager 2021. They are also owned by a human rights abusing oil polluting state so who really cares how "good" they are. Its dull.
Its not just Spurs look at Liverpool this year, Arsenal are an absolute mess. Its a game wide problem where everyone has gorged themselves on the never ending money and apathy has crept in. I honestly didnt even care that we lost yesterday which would have been unheard of 10 years ago.
The European fiasco was the obvious end of this ever grasping attitude to our national sport and probably should have gone ahead so we get the game we all deserve.

First half was awful, but second half was going pretty well until those ridiculous subs. Lucas was our best player on the day and I thought lo Celso was doing a decent job on the rare occasions we had the ball.

Bringing on Sissoko to play next to Winks and PEH was a joke. I'm not expecting a tactical masterclass from Mason but I expected better than that.

But to be honest, whatever team we put out, tactics we used, City were on top form and are many levels above us.

Who do we get in then?
A nice cuddly US hedge fund to extract wealth out of the club in dividends?
A middle eastern state that celebrated letting women drive in 2020?
Maybe a Putin mafia ally who "inherited" his wealth from the KGB?
Ill take tax dodging Amazon I suppose as compared to the above they are saintly good.
