    He hasn't said the players aren't good enough. He's said the squad isn't good enough. He's made it pretty clear which players he doesn't think are good enough and wants to move on.
    He's also said it's not all about transfers and that there is a lot of work to be done in training (which will also improve the squad).

    He is looking at the depth in key areas and it’s missing
    CM… he has 3 players there he doesn’t want and that’s telling
    He has Rodon he doesn’t want judging by his lack of any game time so we’re weak at CB in reality and that’s even slowing for Tanganga
    We don’t have any cover for Kane at all
    We have a back up keeper who is toilet and conte wouldnt use again if he could avoid
    So IMO that’s 6 areas/players that he will see as issues or 25% of a basic squad

    People only hear the bits that suit their position unfortunately

    But we have a shiny new stadium loaded with gadgets and a cinema coming. Great times to be a Spurs fan! Which other club can boast the world's best non-football achievements!

    Think its very obvious he doesn't think our starting eleven or squad can compete with the top 3. And while coaching will help, there's no way Conte will be happy if we don't sign a couple of players minimum in this window. He's clearly playing the game.

    Agreed and I think he's playing it very well. I really don't think Levy has many places to go on this without giving Conte what he wants or looking like a complete roosterwomble.

    Two years worth of managers have made similar decisions - there is point where you really have to concede it's not poor managerial decision making, it's trying to make dinner with whatever you can find at the back of the cupboard

    Can you support your statements on player fitness? Do you know how fit those players were? Interested in your sources, otherwise it's just another opinion from a couch.

    As for afraid, he set us up well, we had a good first-half and had we not been done by the ref would've had the chance to see how we defended a lead second-half. Instead, dingdonged again.

    What is clear is we need upgrades in specific areas, because our final pass execution in key passages is overall poor.

    Today was as much on Conte's decisions as it was on squad/player quality. We have failed to be competitive in 3 games against Chelsea when weaker teams than ours have managed it. That for me is simply not good enough.

    Why put all your bets on a game that there's a high chance of losing? Given the build up of games I saw Conte's decisions as sound. We need to give some guys a rest and win all the other games. Arsenal comes to mind and it would be a tragedy if they had more players fit.

    Yeah but they could be carrying knocks etc. Not the time to be risking more injuries. I mean, trust the manager? Who wouldn't put forward their strongest team against Chelsea if they could?

    Agree with carrying knocks. Said as much earlier in the thread.

    Look at Chelsea’s recent form. We had a more than decent chance of winning.

    Of course they are. But losing 3 times to them in 2 and half weeks is even more damning, given that they've lost and drawn so many recently.

    I dont understand this comment. It suggests there is a pot of money to spend but daniel really doesnt want to spend it but people like yourself and jamie redknapp are urging daniel to give this pot to conte.

    But that is not the reality. The reality is we have no money to spend due to covid and zero help as always from lewis. We have agreed a fee for traore but cannot go ahead unless we shift someone like dele to newcastle.

    All we can do is hope that by the summer the new third party investment has come.

    True and consistent with Conte's view that hard work and years are needed to improve the squad... Or we can invest now to quicken the process.
