    So we didn’t do anything to win it?
    I mean we pressed on that game
    We played good football too
    And we took the chances well
    We also kept the ball in midfield when needed
    It was a great performance coupled with their stupidity

    Quite a few good players missing from that squad list to make it look worse.... King, Carrick & Defoe for example?

    Winning the League Cup will not convince any players to stay (as we saw the last time we won it).

    Different era. Did everyone leave United after they won it?
    In a club like ours which has a mediocre record of winning things (hell the volume of posts on here from fans when Poch was here complaining about a lack of trophies was quite clear) a league cup is progress
    I also think we will get close and possibly win the europa and do what United did that season. It feels the same now to me and we have the qualities to do that
    If that isn’t good enough for players that have foundered before when getting close then what is...

    You misunderstood my post - there's no point arguing this point when both you and i just have opposite opinions, it's not going to change eithers thinking. You think a LC win will keep Kane and Son here, i don't. No point going round in circles over it

    They looked like Brazil in the second half against us a few weeks back....

    I don’t think they looked that great. Very huff and puff football with lots of effort but little quality. but again they got a goal from a corner poorly defended
    They were much better last season

    Tbh when i reposted it i didn't even look at the squad list - the point that stood out was Jose's current ppg

    If you think a league cup win and missing CL will keep anyone other the the poor players happy then that’s fine, everyone is entitled to an opinion.... Mine differs from yours though and I think two of our best three players from when we won it before owing off to CL teams proves that.

    I think all of the players will naturally be delighted to win a Cup, but the best ones will want CL football and try to move away to get that.

    if we win the Europa as well then that would be CL qualification and a different story. I don’t see us winning two trophies though. Would love to be wrong.

    Sorry I meant in comparison to us.... with us playing all out defence like San Marino.

    we will get CL IMO and thats key I agree
    I’d we don’t get CL and just a league cup I think that will put the cat amongst the pigeons

    We defended well
    But the mistake for the goal was bad
    Unchallenged header isn’t excusable
    Again it was a game where we linot a team to so few chances but concede
    People say Jose’s favourite result is 2 nil... but to do that you need the second goal
    That’s is a huge part of what is killing his system

    F365 nailed it:

    As concerning as the uncanny predictability of these results has become, though, must be the identity of the teams pegging Spurs back. Newcastle. West Ham. Crystal Palace. Wolves. Fulham. This is not elite clubs forcing Spurs on to the back foot, it is Spurs constantly ceding territory and possession in the seemingly heartfelt yet baffling and wrong belief that this time things will be different.

    If we don't get CL he needs to go. I know it's drastic but honestly if we don't qualify it will all be down to the manager. He has had the perfect opportunity this season to enshrine qualification but seems intend on throwing it away with the cowardly approach we take every match.

    I don’t think there can be any arguments with the investment in quantity of players made for Jose if we don’t get it

    On the league cup point: the winning things has been banded out quite a bit by Kane but It do think CL matters more overall - wages are likely linked to it for a start. A season of a cup and no CL will be tolerable due to the drought but I’m sure Jose would be under pressure to deliver CL next season to keep his job.

    Surely things change as proficiency increases.

    Siss is no longer a RW
    Not his position now so play him further back where can cover Aurier or Doherty who aren’t good enough

    But who can he trust
    Bale?
    Dele?
    Lamela fir 90 mins?
    No in my opinion

    But dress it up how you like we created enough chances to have won this game comfortably
    They just weren’t taken and that’s not on Jose

    If they had and we won the game as we should have it would have been a Jose masterclass
