    All I know is that that was a genuinely unpleasant watch and I never want to be put in that position again.

    Manager Watch: Ange Postecoglou

    I think Kulusevski is an 8/10 being forced out wide and Johnson is the type of winger who needs space to run into to be effective, a bit like Bale but obviously nowhere near that level. What we lack is someone who can run and take on his man in a tight space: Saka, Salah, Martinelli, Hazard...

    Manager Watch: Ange Postecoglou

    I don't think the reason is as bad as some people are fearing. Teams have studied us and figured out our weaknesses and are now adapting to that. Everyone is now packing the middle and forcing us out wide, the problem being our wide players suck so we can't respond in kind. The solution is to...

    Manager Watch: Ange Postecoglou

    Because it's better in the long-run to coach the team in the same system over and over again. If we adapted each week relative to the players we've had missing we'd be playing a different system every single week given the injuries we've had, which would likely not only mean similarly...

    Manager Watch: Ange Postecoglou

    We don't have the players to solve them. A manager doesn't just conjure up tactics on the spot, your tactics are derived from the players that you've got. We don't have explosive wingers to break down low blocks and, Richy aside, we have no focal point up front to hold up the ball, bring others...

    Manager Watch: Ange Postecoglou

    This is the painful bit of the painful rebuild. We were here with Poch before we sacked him - and in his first season, in fact - and everyone regretted it as soon as we did it. While I don't think there's a large consensus that's anti-Ange, whatever is there is premature. We'll be fine with good...

    Match Threads Spurs vs Wolves

    Not really learnt anything we didn't already know. We can't break down low blocks because we have no out and out wingers. We're very easy to play against in that respect but I'm also not sure how you fix the problem until you recruit the kind of personnel we're missing. We may just have to suck...

    Match Threads Spurs vs Man City - FA Cup 4th Round

    Felt like a 0-1 thrashing. Well beaten by a better team, can't really say much more.

    The speed doesn't matter. If we had a bid accepted a week ago then his loudmouth agent would've just contacted Bayern and a myriad of other clubs then and they would've made their move knowing exactly what the acceptable offer was. The exact same thing happened with the Luis Diaz move and...

    Nothing more we can really do at this stage. Understandable if he picks Bayern but hopefully the Premier League and the likelihood of more playing time swings it in our favour.

    Same pattern almost every match. Start like a house on fire, get to about 30 minutes and then inexplicably turn to shit and can't regain control.

    Think he'll be fine. The talent is there he just lacks decision making and conviction. Probably psychological as much as anything else but I don't see anything there that can't be worked on and improved with time.

    Can't vouch for its reliability becase it's local media in Uruguay but they're claiming it's a torn ankle ligament, out for 2.5 months or so

    If nothing else that team has got me hugely excited for a match I was mostly dreading.

    Player Watch Player Watch: Dejan Kulusevski

    Is Kulu even a winger? I think part of his issue is that he doesn't fit this system at all. He isn't like Johnson but nor is he like his contemporaries in Saka or Salah - he's almost playing RW for us as a result of a lack of options. I wouldn't be surprised to see his future for us in the...

    Great player but today we saw a clear area of improvement. It's too early in the season to be accumulating so many yellow cards irrespective of the second yellow.

    They're starting to make me feel grateful that we have Arsenal as our rivals. I thought their fans were bad but this is something else entirely.

    Ginger Pelé himself no? Pretty sure we signed him from Luton.
