    Starting Kane in the CL final when not sure if he was fit enough. Not saying it was a mistake. But it caused a lot of uproar or agreement.

    Not just dropping Moura after his heroics, but not even having the decency to have a little word with him and give him a heads up he won’t be starting...fudge me.

    Anyway, how did playing Son at LB against Chelsea in FA Cup semi not get a mention?:D

    It will always be fielding a second string team against Arsenal in the 2015 League Cup.
    At the time he really didn't get it.
    He would never do that now.

    How can you blame Poch for not selling players? That's not his role ffs.

    His current squad isn't the best Tottenham squad he's had. That's obvious. This thread is moronic in the extreme.

    Between Rose and the book for me.

    I'll lean towards Rose as I've not been able to bring myself to read more than a few chunks of the book.

    Two of the three players that want to leave have had offers from other clubs and refused them. Players we seem happy to let go.
    What can we/he do about?

    Some of the reasoning is a bit weird,
    pochs lost the dressing room, get Jose, the greatest dressing room uniter ever.

    He shouldn't be opening his mouth in public, get Brenda in.

    I mean fudge me, reading this it's like Jose is a Saint, have we all forgotten him poki g pep in the eye? Encouraging hazard to play dead to run the clock down? Hanging that physio out to dry?
    I like Jose, but I don't want him anywhere near our club.

    The book

    A lot of what has come after is judged rightly or wrongly from book.

    Doing it was vanity and has bought nothing positive to the club and it has weakened the man himself. He's meant to have this standing as a great gentleman in the game, gentleman don't go talking about what's behind the curtain.

    The only person that I can see has benefited from it is Balague.

    First point fair, although he has some influence surely?

    Second point, I think this is the best squad we’ve ever had, ever, and he should be getting better performances from them.

    Voted for dropping Moura for Champions League final but think the poll would have looked very different if Son at LB in FA Cup semi final had been included. Would have certainly got my vote.

    Not sure it can be the best he's had without dembele, no decent RB, Tobys legs gone.

    He's got Ndombele and Lo Celso, Aurier and Fyoth have both put in top level performances at RB, KWP has had great games for us, Toby shouldn't be playing anyway as Sanchez is fitter/faster/stronger and look at his performances in his first season.

    The tools are there, they are just being used badly.
