    Come off it. Not saying there isn't problem but do you really expect everyone to be 400% on the game the entire 90 minutes?? A deliberately selected out of context 2 and half seconds tells you there is a body language issue?!?

    Jan not to start? Wouldn't have a huge issue and would accept Poch just rewarding Sanchez. But to then not be included on a bench that consisted of Skipp Dier and Wanyama basically covering 1 position does seem something is amiss.

    Alli and Sessegnon had worse body language

    Maybe I need to lay in every emoji on earth so you can understand my lack of seriousness! Or perhaps you are new to this forum and how ya olde regulars joyfully refer to the body language of our Dutch players. And before you get apoplectic I know that we have no Dutch players, but some Belgians. I’m off for a bath in custard now.

    I honestly think if it was just that Sanchez was better in training then Jan would have at least been on the bench ahead of either Dier or Aurier, neither of whom have played in any preseason matches

    You could be right, Im just trying to be positive.
    In forty years following spurs this is the best I can remember.
    And yet everyday it's a new crisis, pochs leaving, no transfers, Eriksen leaving, Toby is done, and most of it is blown out of all proportion.
    Maybe everything is nt all doom and gloom.

    Nothing new in that is there, look at all the drama that followed a couple of his press events. Its what some do.

    Agreed. No left back on the bench, only Dier and Wanyama as potential centre backs, both having just returned from injury.

    You don't just drop Vertonghen from the matchday squad for no reason unless he's injured. Pochettino was given every opportunity to say that he had a slight injury, but didn't.

    Hopefully just something minor. And hopefully a new contract will be sorted soon.

    Okay, so did you actually see the cutaway? There is bored, and then there is doing an impression of a girl who's just had a blazing row with her bf.
    Alli was looking down at his iPhone, Sessegnon looked predictably enough like the new boy who feels totally out of place .

    I think that you might be reading a little too much into a crowd shot during a break in play.

    It looked like a group of lads in the posh seats at football to me. I didn't know anything about the circumstances for his exclusion until after the game but didn't see anything odd from the shot.

    Maybe contract talks have broken down and he’s said he wants off.

    The time of the contract comments the other day was odd

    So that is Jan, Toby and Eriksen potentially off, all 3 for nothing. A year ago we would have got £200m for all of them.
