They missed a number of chances, we took most of ours. Please let's not fall into the same old trap of thinking that our squad isn't all that far off. Too often we 'settle' for ok players as back up meaning that the starting 11 is pretty well established and we don't give players as much rest as we should through fear of it weakening our line up. Two quality players in every position must be what we strive for.IMHO yesterday showed that we are a lot closer to having a decent squad than we thought
We have had 12 Regular starters out learning a new system this season, having lost Kane as the season started.
Yes we lost 3 on the trot, though any team would with our key players out some of the time we were the better team in the 3 we lost. The Chelseas game was a freak. We were the better side, till romero and udogie lost the plot. The same with Villa when Cash smashed Bents . I really feel it was a deliberate and Cash should have got a red and definitely a retrospective red.
The interesting thing is how Ange has adapted to the adversity, and proved that even without Maddison, Peresic, Romero, VDV, Bents, Sarr, the "Harry Kane reserve team" can go away to arguably the best team in the world with no recognised CH and get a 3-3 draw. Especially as a lot of the side that were on the pitch could not sting a pass together under Conte.
For me ta miracle thats up there with................. walking on water.
No wonder they call him Ange
I honestly think it is not inconceivable for us to acheive great things this season, if we can get some consistency in the next few games. We have to do it in the next few games till XMAS, as we get players back.
I believe our first team when fully fit is actully a match for anyone in this league.
I have been watching spurs for an extremely long time and its the most excited i have been about our prospects since the early 60s.
