Just one of those performances from Son who was the worst player on the pitch along with Werner. A shame as a win would have been massive but we go again.

he should have been taken off for richarlison. He was never in the game. Was very obvious so I have no idea how Ange didn't see it

He’s far too easily managed by teams who have physicality and sit back. He was shite last night and again recently against Fulham

He should be the pinch-hitter for this team. He doesn't have the legs to lead the front line for 90 mins.
Levy's going to have to do the unthinkable this summer and buy a top class forward...

Think we may have a problem in future because I'm not actually sure what he is anymore. He's not a winger and he isn't a striker, tactically Ange needs to figure out where he wants to play Son long term before we make any signings.

I don't feel like it's so much about position but more about what players you with Son. Kane + Son worked brilliantly because Son could focus on making runs in and behind the opponents defence line. He really works best when he can free roam. Son should never be the player that plays with their back against goal. That's why I feel like Son needs Richarlison as a number 9 in Anges system to consistently play well.

The official youtube channel posted a video of "shooting practice" pre-Forest. I had to laugh at the comments:

The global reach of the premier league is really mind-blowing sometimes.

I remember reading somewhere that 12 MILLION South Koreans say they're spurs fans.

I’m not crying, you’re crying…
Proudly.

Never would have thought ten years earlier that I’d have him rated as one of the top 10 Tottenham Legends in my time watching the club since 1980.

A chap, that when all is said and done, will always be prefaced with: “criminally underrated”.

We can't rely on him hitting 15-20 goals again next season. A top class striker needed this summer is an absolute must. Son will benefit from this massively.

Too many great players there without a title for us which is absurd. I really hope Son is rewarded with a title with us. I think he can get to 500 games and 3rd all time scorer. He's one of those who looks after his body well and while he will lose pace his finishing will be the last thing to go.
