    I’m pretty sure most of this forum has always said Dier and Sanchez make a formidable partnership:D….

    I was in foul humour when I saw the team. Thought I'd be watching from behind the couch through my fingers for the afternoon. When Dav threw in that last challenge, I'd gone full circle and was pretty much saying "Knew he'd do that. Always had faith in the big man. What else were you expecting?"

    Great performance from the pair of them. Much better than I ever thought they could be.

    Japhet, Sanchez, Dier and Moura were excellent. The rest were extremely good!

    Just got back from the game and didn't realise how much I've missed actually being there.

    The atmosphere was electric, actually hostile at times and to a man the team responded.

    I can't remember the last time I saw such a committed 90 minute performance from a Spurs team. That is what won us this game.

    This.
    Sat on the train back "oop North" thinking that's got to be one of, if not the best atmosphere at the new WHL. Take a bow everyone.

    Early days but the main difference seemed to be Skipp, we haven’t had a solid midfield base since Wanyama and Dembele. Our defence looked comfortable, that can’t be a coincidence

    Very good point. He really grew into it after an iffy first 10 minutes.

    Agreed, nothing seems to faze Skippy. Very calm, confident unflustered player. I think he'll be a fixture for us and an outside change for World cup 2022 squad.

    I worry about the balance in midfield against weaker teams. I thikn we need one or both of GLC and Ndombele in there, or another creative player

    It certainly worked today, whether that’s ok when the ball is on the other foot and we need to be pushing the play is another matter. Great to have a proper defensive minded partner for Hojberg when needed though.

    Currently dining on a kebab after a few extra beers. Going to hate myself tomorrow, but damn how I've missed this.

    Got back from the game myself, two main points

    - Every player played for the shirt today, something I haven't seen in probably two years
    - Despite City being a very good team, we tore them apart quite regularly with our breaks

    I'll add more after, but yes the atmosphere was off the charts as well

    What do you think this is fking hide and seek
    Calmed down a bit, but my word today was just effing beautiful.

    hugo 7 - not a fan, but today he was captain like and solid in all aspects.

    reggie 6.5 - some good runs and dogged defensively.

    Dier 7 - some vital interceptions, showed excellent concentration and worked in tandem in a solid defensive display.

    Sanchez - 8 has the penny dropped, beastly today and ferocious in the tackle, gets lots of stick on here but we cannot ignore it when he’s as good as he was today.

    Tanganga - 10 unbelievable today, simply beautiful display, when we were under the cosh early on it was his dogged desire that inspired others and pulled us through, reminds me of Keane, no nonsense and loves the battle, has the physicality to back it up.
    Don’t ship him off to Turkey, pray he stays fit, because we won’t need to spend a fortune on a new right back.

    hoijberg 8 - I want him as captain, supreme fight, and got us going into some great counter opportunities we should have made more of.

    Skippy 8 - nightmare start but found his groove and got better as the match wore on and belief kicked in. Fought like arsholes next to the Dane.

    Dele 7 - got better as the game went on, defensive wise he worked hard, attacking wise he contributed well to our counters.

    Steve 7 - ran with the ball at pace, worked hard and should have made the game safe for us, played his part.

    moura 9 - road runner, meep, meep done amazing things today, drove us forward, leapt like a salmon for headers, just all round lovely performance.

    Son 7 - always made himself an option but poor decision making in the first half, got it right in the second and made me celebrate like a lunatic.

    lo celso 6.5
    Doherty 6.5

    nuno - 10

    fans - 10 x infinity

    have some of that city, we are Tottenham!

    For one match, of course they can do that. For a whole season, not so much.
