    The super six: Dele, Eriksen, Kane, Son, Sissoko and Lamela.

    Remember when we had the brick six...

    Walker, Kerslake, Nethercott, Judas, Edinburgh, Calderwood. Christ we’ve come a long way.

    I think somebody said in an earlier posting he does and tries things others don't even see, that's what I want to see in a Spurs player, it's that spark of genius, you have to accept that it won't always come off but he has the guts to try.

    No, Son is not on their level currently. These are Real Madrid quality first teamers

    I agree with Bullet on this one. If Son was a little more clinical (like putting away 2 of those good chances he had vs Chelsea), I'd put him in the same bracket.

    I get that Son is not on RM's radar but for me it's that four that works best for us, with Son making way for Lamela or Moura after 65 min. Your opinion is different and I'm fine with that.;)

    Agree, interestingly none of them has any real pace so they play the game quicker in their heads, which may be why they play so well together. Having a direct pace option with them is helpful but its usually still these guys that are creating the space for them.

    I also felt there was a period last season when we played 3421 that Alli and Eriksen were at their best, as they had a little more space to themselves rather than one of them taking a slightly wider berth when playing in a 3.

    I remember him grinning ear to ear after letting one in completely his own fault, and never forgiving him.

    Walker was a good keeper, he did make mistakes but he was regularly exposed in a poor team.

    Edinburgh was serviceable too.

    If he'd taken all the free kicks he won that number would be at least double. Seemed to get kicked everytime he was on the ball.

    Arsenal were all over us like a rash!
    They played like a team with something to prove!
    We played like team that had just beaten Chelsea and Inter!
    And had feckall to prove!
    That surly must have tinkled Pochettino off?
