So frustrating. A good team would be taking spurs apart , they are crap at the back , sadly though they have Kane.

We started the half and ended the half well enough. So frustrating how we just collapsed completely for 5 mins or so after we scored.

No idea why Krafth, who's bad enough at full back, is playing out of position at centre back when we've got an actual centre back on the bench.

This. We got our own ''Kane'' in Wilson who we need back ASAP.

We've played decently enough to go in at half-time a draw but two lapses of concentration have let us down. So many missed chances.. Gayle's had a couple chances he should have put away & if that weight of pass to Miggy was better we'll be 2-2. Murphy looking quality again.. pacey & can deliver a cross.. should be starting all the time? Good to see Joe bag one.. and his hold-up play has been decent so far. I things are still the same after a hour get ASM & Willock on.. maybe change to 4 at the back. Only issue is Spurs have 2 big game changing subs in Son & Gareth Bale.. I could see us maybe nicking a goal but sadly losing 2-3 as Spurs hit a last winner through Son. <erk> <urgh>

Also as someone mentioned why is Kraft playing CB?? When we got someone like Clark on the bench. <scratch>

Crazy that Murphy hasn't played more
And this is why I can't get behind "our squad is poor". We've got Murphy and the Longstaffs essentially frozen out all season, Manquillo and Clark benched in favour of an out of position (and generally rubbish) Krafth and Ritchie still shoehorned into wing back. Add to that Lejeune loaned out while we play far inferior CBs and lack of Wilson aside it all comes down to poor management.

This . Krafth tries hard but he’s a very poor player.

What a weird game.
We squander chance after chance but you feel if they have to Spurs will get just what they need from this.
Our ineptitude and their talent will be just too much, irrespective of how crappy Spurs look today.

For Ritchie. Dummett to left back, Murphy to right wing. Krafth off for Manquillo.

Wouldn't that leave Lascelles as the only centre back though? I agree to getting ASM on and Murphy further forward if we go back to a flat back four.

Not sure quite how I managed to get the maths so wrong on that one...

Fucks sake Shelvey. Why would you commit a foul like that there?

Spuds have been here for the taking if only we had a decent striker on the pitch. Gonna be another of those games we should've gotten something from but for our ineptitude.
