not looking good is it sfer.
we have quite a strong 1st 11 but we rely too heavily on our key players. we are still missing a modric replacement too.
i fear we have missed out on our chance to get moutinho.
dont get me started on hudd. he was awful again. defensively he is a liability. & apart from the odd long pass & odd long shot, he offers nothing going foward. stoke is more his level.
his lack of fitness shows his lack of desire & commitment to spurs.
so far sig & dempsey havent really settled in & impressed yet.
but dempsey has mainly being played out of position.
whereas sig has just been poor.
but got to give them time.
hudd has had plenty of time & has never done it!
i was shocked when i saw we have given townsend a 4yr contract! never going to be good enough for us.
he didnt really impress much in the championship either.
yes i too find myself agreeing with fowler. apart from the odd long pass does he actually contribute.
i dont understand making lennon captain either.
we have missed parker this season. sandro has been great but sometimes he needs help or a break because he does so much leg work. we could have done with parker against chelsea.
its going to be a long season. i still think 6th is a good target considering team & manager we have got.
top 3 is done & dusted.
I watched Willian against Chelsea and was most impressed, so I hope we renew our interest in Jan, especially as he has issued a " come and get me " statement. Hopefully we can still get Moutino because I think we were very close in the summer. The thing we are lacking throughout the squad now is anyone with genuine flair and sharpness. Some people asked, is Modric really any good? he dont score goals ect, but I think we can see exactly what he did, and thats set the tempo of our play, and the ability to get out of tight spots and keep moves flowing. now we lack anyone with creativity, and only have Dembele with any purpose about their play. On last night, I agree with most things ( Sandro needs to stop thinking he's Brazilian ) and trying to dribble his way pass players, and stick to what he does best. The one point I would disagree about is Lennon. although he didnt really take on the full backs enough, I thought he showed a lot of energy and desire and while he might be seen as an odd choice for captain, I saw him at least three times having ago at some of our player's for not doing the simple, basic thing's in strong terms and I was pleased to see he took the armband seriously.

agreed remmah. that lack of goals & assist is a stupid arguement. it wouldnt only be applicable if u start with the ball on the edge of the other teams area!
he sets the tempo, keeps the ball, always their if u got nowhere to go with the ball & he gets it to the people who make the assists.
plenty of seasons xavi only got 2 or 3 league goals & assists.
only recentley when he went further foward did he score more.
modric was like our xavi. its silly to compare silva and modric.
2 very different players with 2 very different jobs.
if we cant get moutinho which looks likely (who can blame him for wanting to go to a better & bigger team), than id like banega of valencia.
i think now we havent got modric, people are realising all the good unnoticed stuff he did. missed him hugely this season.
not really seen much of willan, but looks promising.
i actually think lennon has been 1 of our best & most consistant players this season. he has matured a lot in the last year or so.
