    Took another look at it and you have a point. It was poor defending from Dier.

    What I would say, is that as the guy is breaking on the left, Dier is defending the centre back position and there is no Fulham player there. Reguilon is behind Dier and has two players. So Reguilon should be screaming at Dier to watch that danger. Dier has also taken a glance over his shoulder so should have an idea of what's behind him. So I think Dier is guilty of bad positioning/awareness and if Reguilon didn't bawl him out of it to drop, he's got some culpability too. But it's still mainly on Sanchez for me. He was embarrassing with how easy he got turned.

    Beating a team in the bottom 3 is not a masterclass its par for the course.

    And yes, each and every one of those players should be the in the team in last night's circumstances ahead of Sissoko

    Doesn't matter how many chances we miss if we still decide to to sit off on a 1 goal lead.

    What's with all the Sissoko hate when he's been head and shoulders above several other players?

    Aside from Kane's goal yesterday he was poor. Son was non-existant in that formation. Winks, once again, offers NOTHING to the team.

    Seems like people want to slate Sissoko when he yet again was back defending and actually contributed to one of the handful of chances of us getting into the box, certainly more than Winks that's for sure.

    Last week vs Leeds he was even better.

    The common factor was the way Leeds play. We've seen enough times it's sh.it or bust football, so hard to read.

    I think it's highly possible this is the situation between Levy and mourinho. Grown men solving real life problems. No instant solutions.

    We'd might still lose if we went positive and leave more holes at the back.
    If you can't shut out Fulham with Kane and Son up front, there's something seriously wrong with the defence.

    Bolded part is true, Jose doesn't play the game on the night. But every tactical analysis I've read points out how we sit back, and while he had majority possession last night, we did the same thing AGAIN. As pointed out by every football writer. And while Jose may say he doesn't tell them to do that, he's not fixing a problem. Even AVB was able to stop us shipping late goals. So if Jose can't change how this squad plays, that is on him.

    I think that’s a fair logic but how many teams have kept a clean sheet vs Leeds?
    When we win games sometimes it’s more than just the opposition being weak and playing into our hands

    They're in the bottom 3, but they're a much better team now than they were earlier in the season. Beating Leicester, drawing against Liverpool and Southampton (as well as Brighton and Newcastle).

    Our xG was 3.14, theirs 1.05.

    They played well in the second half, we weren't as good at in the first half. But we didn't just sit off. If we had been sitting off would Sanches be out by the corner flag trying to stop a cross?

    There have been several very frustrating games where we've deservedly dropped points because we both sat back and failed to create anything of note going forward. This game to me wasn't one of those games. Still frustrating, but for other reasons.

    There was a noticeable shift post half time break in the intent, the possession stats at the time we conceded told the story - we didnt sit back ultra deep like we have in other games but we stood off more and allowed them more time and territorial advantage than in the first half. When they scored it was something that had been coming - not something out of the blue.

    Was there a single Spurs fan anywhere that didn't see that goal coming? Because non-figuratively every friend of mine in our Spurs whatsapp chat called it in the first half.
    I meant vs Brentford not Leeds. Sissoko was immense.

    There definitely was a shift. At least partly because Fulham started playing better and they're a pretty good team these days. As a result we struggled at times, but there was also a clear difference between this and previous games where we've both sat deeper and created very little.

    Still obviously a lot of room for improvement. But if we can play games like this consistently, games where we create more and better chances than our opponents, the results will come imo.

    I don't think the goal was something that had been coming in the same way as it has been in the past. I think we looked about as likely to score a second as they were to equalise. Illustrated by the Son chance.

    Still not good enough that second half, but better none the less imo. And the first half was very good.

    A lot more sense in that post then some of the hysterical ramblings that others have posted.

    True.

    Its the games we lose/draw, i can't say we look much better than the team we are playing. And we have 2 genuinely world class strikers.

    And that is not me thinking we should or have a right to be rolling these teams over, just what i see on a game by game basis. Perhaps the quality (top to bottom) is just better these days?

    Ignoring Marine the last three games I think we've looked better. Deservedly beat Leeds, deservedly beat Brentford, deserved to beat Fulham, but were wasteful.

    listen i back Jose and still hope he's the man to bring us success.

    I'm sorry, i don't buy the "squad us awful" shtick. Defence is a bit shabby, but a team with Hojberg, Ndombele, Dele, Son, Kane, Bergwijn, Moura, Bale, should be good enough to provide on the pitch.

    I take one look at United's squad and don't think it's any better than ours, definitely a worse manager, and yet they're 3pts above Liverpool and we continually drop points in the same way. That is on Jose, you might not like it, but that's the fact. He needs to change something, that's why he's paid the big bucks.

    It's not on ANYONE else.

    I have no doubt that he knows we need to further reinforcements and he will do just that. I know a few of " i want it and i want it now" posters laugh at the phrase " a work in progress" but that IS what we are.

    I would agree with all that, the reason we did not beat Fulham is that Son missed his chances ( good ones at that)
