    My point was that both players threads have been hot topics on the board when neither player was anywhere near the team - much like the Adebayor thread.

    that when he has time and has to think, he usually scores. mostly penalties or a goal like the one against Villa. goal against Anzhi last year. even the cardiff goal where he took a touch and finished well. id say the cardiff one was a little more instinctive then cool and calm.

    I have an agenda with Capoue? I was one backing him up earlier in the season, mostly on my own. His performances have decreased levels and ive given him deserved stick. We looked better in midfield without him today although not so much. Agenda against Adebayor? I just dont rate him, much like most of his previous managers because he could be so much better his career if he just wanted too.

    we created chances before the red. go watch the game again instead of looking at things through out the game to single out players for making mistakes or being out of position like you had some sort of past experience, its not your job.

    you're missing the point i think.
    \The Ade thread was immediately bumped after the game and he wasn't playing. That was my point but again its no biggie.

    Seeing either playing wasting oxygen and passes up top makes me sad, I would rather play 451 or 460 or 820 than play Soldado and Adebayor.

    We have 17 tricksters, perhaps 460 would result in width and an upturn in our dire performances.

    you sound angry and childish now tbh. I'm aware it's "not my job" but you know we're on a spurs forum where we discuss these things right? i mean it's"not your job" to critique adebayors performance...do you not see ho pathetic that sounds:lol:

    I asked you to elaborate on the chances we created before the red...you couldn't because you know full well we didn't create much at all...so you resort to telling me to "watch the game again". Your line of argument is very weird.

    its not my job, but i can give an opinion on his performance. you seem to watch a game to see the negatives, every single week. 5 minutes into the game, Capoue, who is human and is likely to make mistakes, is 35cms out of position and gets shat on. You gave him credit against Arsenal and Southampton because we didnt lose either game. When i said its not your job, I meant analyzing everything. Youre a fan sitting at home watching football on a stream. Let the manager/coach worry about that ****.

    I don't have to elaborate. I watched the game, we created chances. If you don't remember them (most like because we were losing, so over analyzing everyones performances and criticizing every movement) then thats not my problem or "my job" to remind you.

    How many PL starts has he had this season? Pretty obvious his confidence in front of goal is low, but if he gets a run of games it might return - it might not but Im happy to see him given a chance.

    Once thing I know for sure is that our attacking play is a lot more intelligent when him and Kane are playing, Id still have him ahead of Ade as things stand...

    No Milo i won't do that. You stated on this thread (and not via pm) that i should quit being personal which is a fair enough request. i simply want to know that if someone says you're "chatting pure bull****" is personal but you don't seem to want to answer so it's ok:eek:k:

    I never saw him play before we signed him but knew his name. I hope we did not just sign a guy because he scored a lot of goals in a european top flight league, which is what I suspect.

    We really need new strikers, I have been underwhelmed by our strikers since Berbatov left really. Not sure who they should be that chap in Belgium the Serbian sounds good but the scouts and Poch need to decide. I just hope one of the new strikers is Bony or Benteke someone who has proven it in this league. That does not always prove good as Torres with Chelsea can show. But I want someone who has at least done it in this league, do not care of nationality.

    I actually think a lot of posters on this site do have agendas, and it is a problem. It is very hard to discuss matters when certain postesr only see what they want to see. We all have players/managers we rate and don't rate, but the problem is that a lot of posters will never admit it if a player/manager they don't rate does/have done something good and vice versa. Certain posters dislike Redknapp and think everything he did was wrong, others liked AVB and thought he did everything right. Surely it must be possible to have more balanced views? Everything is not black or white.

    I am pretty fair minded cos all Ii care about is Tottenham winning, saying that I do always think if we are going to be **** lets do it with English players so maybe I have an unwitting prejudice against the foreign players. But maybe not because I loved Ginola, Berbatov, Bale etc.

    King Dawson - you have said nothing wrong here.

    Murmon - ADE has played in an almost identical way this season and you have attacked him. We were crap today for large parts.

    The reason why Bob should be surplus to requirements is because he will never be prolific in this league.

    Today when Eriksen-sen-sen whipped the inch perfect cross in - the fact he didn't attack the ball was shocking for someone who is meant to be a 'fox in the box'. Totally lacking confidence and desire to
    Turn it around.

    He is the first one we should get rid of. Absolutely woeful finisher. Not only that though but he is also not trying to get on the end of things, I counted 3 occasions in today's game where he didn't try to attack a ball across the box, so on top of his woeful finishing he is also now bottling it.

    Mind you at least I can be thankful for small mercies with Capoue finally finding his perfect spot in our team!

    As for Soldado he is just desperately lacking in confidence at the moment. A couple of times today the ball was played into good areas in the box, Soldado was in a decent position, but he doesn't want to get in a position where he can miss, so he doesn't attack the spaces. He is more afraid of missing than he is eager to score. Classic symptons of a striker lacking in confidence.

    And ever since he first joined us it was been quite apparent that he doesn't have the pace or strength to be a great success in this league. He is a decent footballer, he can see the game well and can set up team mates with intelligent play, but I can't see him ever becoming a success story for us. I like him, but I don't see it happening.

    I agree on the whole but I think that his main problem is confidence. I still think that it is best that we move him on but it is a shame because I think that he is a decent player.
