Hutton is useless
Jenas not up to it
Bale-Southampton did well getting rid of him
at least we know if we are to do anything to challenge the top 4 at any stage, we cannot afford to have players like this playing for our first team ..FACT ....
Harry said there was a lack of atmosphere, lets face it OT is quite quiet at times. im guessing that not many yids made the trip? Im not sure, but anyhow it could of contributed towards the teams lack of inspiration and appearance of a practice match.
Overall though I'm pleased to announce that and by public demand that Jenas is offically shit.

agree with sash 100%.
i think harrys attitude to the game seemed to rub off on our poor performance & lack of team spirit.
i know a lot of u including el tel thought we were the better team & man u werent that good. but to me it looked like man utd were just coasting, taking it easy & knowing they would win what ever.
man u were very sloppy & were their for the taking but we didnt take advantage.
do u really think of we played like that against man utds starting 11 we would win?
basically we lost to a man u fringe team who didnt play very well & coasted in 1st gear through out.
agreed that at least a young11 would have been more hungrier then the likes of jenas & bentley picking up there 50grand a wk for strolling round the pitch.
jenas,bentley & hutton have to go in jan.
This was probably the last chance some of those mentioned had in proving their credentials to HR last night. With the January sales looming, the likes of Hutton, Bale, Bentley and Keane had one more shot at showing what they could do. I'll add Jenas to that lot and tell you exactly what they can all do.....FO!
Ive always been a Keane fan but perhaps his time has finally come and with the scouse debacle still fresh its possibly to much to expect any more from him. Time for a hungrier striker who wants to prove himself.
As for the rest...well they had their chance and were found wanting.
Shame we are out but a good performance and result against EFC should see us all right with the world again.
I must watch different games.
All the hype has been that Utd played their kids and that we were rubbish - implying their kids were great. Not from my perspective.
I only saw three untried players in their line up - Wellbeck, Obertan and Gibson. I haven't included the subs that they brought on when they were two up and we had given up after 60/70 mins (or Anderson who has probably played more games for Utd than Bale has for us).
For 60-70 minutes we outplayed them - and that according to this list is with half our team playing c**p.
My memories would be of the game that we were vastly unlucky not to go in at half time two or three up, let alone two down. And as for the players - Bale - looked ok to me - I didn't see much of Obertan and Bale going forward, put in two or three good balls into the box.
OK - so Jenas and (IMHO) Bassong were poor and Bentley's dead ball taking was pretty awful (but in the first half Bentley and Hutton had the right under control). AND I do agree it was played at a training session pace. BUT the overriding memory will be that I didn't see any belief in the team that they could win it, once we went two goals down.
You've got a problem on your hands, Babe, at Spurs. Whatever varying opinions say, the guy for me is world class and there's no doubt about it. He's about 24 isn't he, his confidence level is now sky high. He knows he can go past people with brilliant close ball control and strength. I wouldn't wager on him being with you for much longer---and that's no disrespect.
I know alan. but I come to expect any world class player at spurs to leave. I don't blame them. they can double their money & actually compete for titles.
bale should be at a much better club than ours.
but I'm just enjoying every minute of him being here.
when he does go, we will get a huge amount for him.
this can then go towards a new stadium or on 3 very good players.
so its a win win. id rather keep him of course. but he deserves to be a club like Madrid or barca.
id like to see him go & play in la liga.
we need more british players abroad.
id also like to see Wilshire go to either barca or Madrid too.
He's signed until 2016, I don't think we need to worry about it for a bit.
Been following today's football on the BBC site, they started the day with a poll on who'd be champions/top 4/relegated - we were consistently in the top 4 predictions, but a fair few of them were citing us as second/biggest worry to man u/contenders for next year, and I'm fairly confident most of them weren't spurs fans.
I have my own thoughts on where we could finish, don't want to ut them into words yet in case of jinxing us, but it's nice to see that other teams see us as a threat. If they're even half right I don't see Bale going abroad for a while, the possibilities with us will be too tasty.
