I think Ange made some tactical errors today - not having a player who can hold the ball up in the forward line for one - but despite the tactics - the players have let us down today with a lack of energy/effort. We've been beat to most 50-50 balls, and knocked off the ball too easily.
Who is this player who can hold the ball up in the forward line? Oh yeah he's injured. You want Ange to pull him off the physio bench? He can't just pull one out of thin air mate.

It's just so naive tactically from Ange, and if not stubbornness just downright idiotic to not look to rectify things.

Every single game this season we get cut open by a long ball over the top, and yet we never adjust the line, or the way we set up to have more players around defensively.

Then crowding the middle of the pitch against a team playing 5 at the back with inverted full backs when we need to stretch the width.

Probably one of the worst games I've seen from us in a long time. So toothless in attack, and no fight all over the pitch.

Embarrassing.
I did mention this when we hired Ange that my only concern from watching a lot of his teams play was that in the CL Celtic got pumped a few times with just balls in behind over and over but I thought a lot of that was down to lack of quality of the Celtic players compared to RB Leipzig/Real Madrid etc in terms of not taking chances or not keeping possession or not defending well.

Lately the same concern is rearing its head and I hope that if we can address this with 5-6 signings in summer then Ange will have his usual very successful 2nd season.

Can’t help but get the feeling Ange's style of football has been found out, it may work in tin pot leagues but essentially playing basketball is not going to work in the premier league, you need a element of control and not to rely on 1v1s to defend.

We can't do this every time we lose a game.

Yes, we need work. Yes, Ange needs to figure out fixes. Yes, new players are needed.

But every loss it seems to be "it's not goign to work, system, tinpot, Celtic, Melbourne' etc –it's just the insecurities from before he joined. Be pissed off, sure, but be patient. A new manager thread will not solve anything.

Don’t you just love getting thumped in the early kickoff on. Saturday.

Weekend ruined and longer to stew on it.

We shit the bed back in October for Chelsea. Possibly the worst Chelsea side in 25 years. Couldn’t hack the pressure of it and since then it hasn’t been that great. A couple of decent patches, but that scared players and management.

have a word with yourself, hes clearly only playing well when its easy going
maybe you’ve only starting supporting Spurs since January, then fair enough, otherwise it’s ridiculous to say he doesn’t turn up in big games, he’s done it in plenty

Not saying Ange should go, BUT is the Prem to much for him? Is it a step too far? All these questions and more answered next week on Amazon's "Spurs: Tactically Inept or Wot!!"
