Not too shocking if all you do is sit back and try and hit on the break. Hundreds of breaks will be intercepted before even getting into shooting position, but those few times you do get through are high percentage opportunities.Spurs have scored like 12 goals in the last 10 attempts against us
Bench Mahrez and we piss the League and the Champs League...so easy to see now you mention it.We made Eric Dier look like Baresi let that sink in. Maybe just maybe this will see a change back to ruthless Pep. He certainly stormed down the tunnel and cannot be pleased with the fight shown in this match. The second goal killed us and even though I don't like VAR it was a decision that if against us we would all agree with. Given the quality of our players we shouldn't be moaning about a handball call. It feels like we've hit bottom so we can only go one way. The main worry for me is the lack of leadership. Kev was trying too hard.
Going forward maybe it's time to give Steffan a go in goal and finally get shut of FFS. I also think the Cancelo left back experiment should end. He did ok but we look out of balance without a left footer as he tends to always look inside.
Depressed as I am I don't think it's as dire as some may think - all the elements are there we just need to find the right combination and play more as a team. Too many times we have players feeling they have to do it all. Back to basics, have a tough look at themselves and come back stronger.
And yes all of you Riyad fan boys I really feel he is the main issue, sorry about that.
