    Ottawa, actually.
    I agree - the perception of how Xavi played is different from the reality, which is that in between 500 shuttling sideways passes were tons of defence-splitting balls that either led to goals or kept the opposition completely harried and hassled.

    But Winks is like that, too - very, very occasionally, he'll pull a surprisingly good pass from his locker. He's like an ersatz Xavi - with about 1/100th of the talent and skill, admittedly, but flashes do show from time to time.

    Ah Possibly, I’m just going from memory. Maybe the previous performances are influencing that memory?

    Attack wise we were great and should have scored a hatful
    They murdered Aurier though
    Just targeted him time and time again and killed him

    There's a difference between low and virtually non-existent!

    Also, your first line says it all. Set up to let Crystal fudging Palace bully us...

    If only we had someone of this quality to make his debut now...

    And he still did noting at 1-0, with 15 minutes to go. At least have a fudging go, and lose 3-0. Instead he did fudge all, and lost 3-0...

    Loved watching him play. One of my favourite Spurs player ever. Especially against the scum he got it.

    I think this is the worst Spurs performance i've ever seen, and I've seen some pretty pathetic displays over the years. A 0-1 loss to wolves at WHL about 10 years ago springs to mind, but today was far worse imo. Even with a reduced squad we should at least try!!
    Hell, my local team had 7 players from the starting XI out today, and started the game with 4 U-17 players, and only 3 on the bench, two of which were the coach (53 year old GK) and assistant coach (44 years old AM), and they faced the leage favorites. And they went out and fudging gave it a go and WON 2-1!
    Didn't see any will to win from anyone today. It was a total brick show of the highest order.

    Even then our XG was higher than the 0.08 we managed today…. Today was our worst attacking performance I can remember.

    Not sure I’d agree
    It was a real marker game for me
    With no reasons behind the poor effort
    Today had quite a few

    hahaha .. either you are fudging senile, have Alzheimer's or really haven't seen a lot of Spurs games.

    Bad game absolutely, worst game ever? .. thanks mate, you actually cheered me up after a brick performance.

    That isn't even the worse performance in the last 12 months ... wouldn't make the fudging top 10 in the last decade ...

    I’m struggling to think of a worse one in the last year? 0.08 XG. That might even be an entire PL low.

    In the Zagreb game (which I assume you’re talking about?) we had far more chances than today, which was a bit like watching a 3rd/4th level team try to hang on against a PL team in the cup.

    I can’t remember who the opposition was, but I remember a game last season where we were so bad that even Sissoko looked lazy.
