Leicester City vs Tottenham Hotspur.

Leicester City vs Tottenham Hotspur.

Firstly, excuse my potential rustiness of my writing, but Spursex, uncovered a few incriminating photos of me wearing an Arsenal shirt as a young lad, and has blackmailed me into writing a few articles or the pics hit Twitter! Mind you, it didn`t do Harry Kane any harm..

Have I become spoilt in feeling that unless I hear the Champions choir fill my ears, its just not quite the same feeling of midweek football, but a defeat tomorrow, could be very bad news for Mr Pochettino and our already declining title hopes, though in reality were they more a dream over reality anyway? I believe its still all about those top four spots and lets worry about silverware, as and if it happens.

Will Poch look at this game as a means to rest a few and make minor rotation? Perhaps returns for Aurier, Rose, Sissoko and maybe one or two more will be a nice opportunity to rest bodies leading up to the festive period, whilst I also think that getting minutes in the legs is a huge benefit to allow a player to hit the ground running as and when needed. Don`t get me started on those that criticise Llorente for not being sharp, when his chances have been so fleeting.

Main interest of course may well be the return of Erik Lamela, who may be seen in a Spurs shirt for the first time on 13 months. Sure his best hope is probably a place on the bench, but that for me increases competition and aides our creative options, which may well make the likes of Dele Alli up their games a little.

Its not lost on me that Spurs perhaps miss having one of Wanyama or Dier protecting the defence. Does that make us more vulnerable defensive? For me, Dier has been excellent at the back, but do we need that shield regardless of who and what formation we use? Dembele, Winks and Sissoko are all excellent, but does playing a deeper role truly suit them or the team? Not for me, Get well soon Victor!

Last season`s superb 6-1 away win for Spurs and the Harry Kane four goals, might have been one of those freak results, but we seem to do pretty well on our trips to Leicester. Three wins and a draw in our last three seasons is better than our home results. But has Claude Puel already confounded his doubters in a bright and positive start at the club, whilst also showing he is tactically brave and willing to switch things to counter a strong opposition.

The reality is that Spurs really have to start showing their best football on a more consistent basis and look at playing at a higher and sharper tempo. Can we beat teams that sit back or like to play on the counter? We may find out a little more as Vardy and Co and bound to want to test us with their sitting on our defenders shoulders and going one to one. Could this be a real test for Dier and Sanchez and their recovery in particular and could it also be a sensible pick to look to Aurier and Rose in the wide roles with their greater pace?

Anyway, Its good to be back (for now at least) and please be gentle with me on my return to writing….

Welcome back Ox. Hope you bring a change in PL luck for Poch and the boys. Hope some of the other missing posters make a return too.

As for the game, We generally have less of an issue on our travels, simply because the home team wants to start on the front foot, we like a proper game!. I think Poch needs to start wielding the axe on players that are below par and be ruthless with his selection, because whatever pre-match talk he gives, hasn't been working in the PL. Davies and Tripp on bench please, let's give Rose and Aurier a go. Lamela ain't gonna be ready to start, so may be 10 - 15 mins. Hope fans don't expect Lamela to be like a new signing. IMO, it will be at least January before he can make a meaningful contribution....that's if he remains fit and injury free. Tough one to call as I don't know whether our players have already given up on PL. I think it has a 1-1 written all over it.

If Leicester come at us trying to win then we will beat them, but if they funnel back, defend well, and then hit us with quick counter attacks, then they will almost certainly win. It is now becoming very difficult to forecast how and how well we will play, as we are struggling for consistency in PL games both in tactical preparation, and performance.

Nice to see you, Ox. Now you know how it works on VS. If we don’t get three points someone has to get the blame! So it’s probably going to be you because of your article. Just warning you. :-) I’m going for a result of 0-3 with the goals coming from Kane (1) and Lamela (2).

Yo! Oxford Bro! Did they dig you out or dig you up? I think its time to go back to the coaching manual and look up the "How to break down an organised defence". I am beginning to wonder whether some of our players have the right mental attitude for games like West Brom. The first 20 minutes on Saturday I sat in the lower tier west side and wondered if I was watching MK Dons certainly Delle looks like he could play for them right now! Poch is not a hair dryer style manager but he is going to have to put some heat under the backsides of his players the day they start thinking they just have to show up to win are over! 13 points behind and its only November! Mind you if I spent £1bn on players I would expect to be 13 points ahead but it still doesnt excuse gifting the teams around us 9 points already. I hope this is not going to be the season when we go back to being flakey! New Stadium next year Champions League Qualification is a minimum!

It is never easy to break a determined team down when it knows how to park-the-bus and play not to lose. Reading many of the comments lately I get the feeling that we are the only team that finds this difficult .... which is far from the case. Only City are significantly in front of us at this stage of the season which suggests that the other 'top' teams find this problem just as difficult as we do. We are still in the mix for a top four finish. Having said that, I agree that we do need to find an alternative way of playing against some of the lower clubs.

Well Poch's gonna have to eat the humble pie and bring Rose back in to the fold. May as well maximise our returns whilst he is still with us.Feel a tad sorry for Harry Kane, seems frustrated with the dross around him.Here's hoping the A team brings it's A game from the off. I am gonna scream if I hear that 'we started slowly'. It's a recurring problem and Poch's responsible for getting their mindset correct from the outset.

Critical_Spur, we do have a contracted sport performance scientist/specialist whose job is to mentally prepare our players both on a continuous and pre-game basis; I can't help feeling that either the players aren't listening anymore (and he was credited for changing the squads attitudes in the last two seasons), or he's given up!

This is it Spursex. Clearly someone is not doing their bit in preparing the team. This has been evident for a considerable period now. Once in while we start the game at full throttle, but invariably a slow pedestrian approach. I am no psychiatrist but a mere mortal fan who can see this. Whilst Poch acknowledges it, I don't see him doing much about it during the game. His pensive demeanour on the touch line seems to allow the players to carry on in the same vein. The winners like Pep, Mou, won't allow that and you'd see a very animated and vocal reaction from them.

Well, I'm not going to pretend that I know exactly why we had a problem breaking down WBA but I could see that the Baggies did an extremely good job of making it tough for us. And especially after seeing them score that early goal. Still, It certainly wasn't the disaster that many seem to think it was. Losing 4-0, now that would have be a real worry. We gained a point and I'm over it already.

It's another day and another tough match is on the cards.

Are the Foxes to be seen as yet another team that we 'really should be beating'? I certainly think we are capable of beating them all but realistically, that ain't going to happen. They do like a draw so far this season and have won just 3 PL matches. We have drawn 3, lost 3 and won 7. I believe we will make it 8 and I refuse to be negative in advance of the match. But perhaps, that's just me.

After the many miserable post mortem's and over-analysing (as I see it), since Saturday, I wouldn't be at all surprised if Tottenham's players show us all that they are not at all knackered, not at all lacking in pace and by no means out of any top 4 race. Then again... ?

Watford play at home to United tonight and I think they have a good chance of beating them. If they do and we win, it'll be the United supporters that'll need reviving from their misery. And, Spurs will then be just a mere 2 points behind Jose's men and just 3 points off second place.

Well, that's the way I'm going into the match tonight. Hopefully both the Watford and Spurs players won't let me down.

You won't like me when I'm miserable. Even more so if you already dislike me for my optimism.

Up the Spurs!

I don't feel confident because we are not on form and I still feel that 'spursy' feeling, after decades of blowing things and inconsitency. It was starting to go but I admit, it's still hiding in me.

I am however very excited about Lamelas return. Ok he may not be at his nest for some time, but what it may bring and I hope it does is a realisation to other players that they have to up their game, its been too long now that Dele, Eriksen to some extent have not played well but got the nod every week. Dele imo has been fortunate to play as often as he has, I think due to Son's slow start after missing pre season Dele has got away with being picked when he clearly has been awful at times, but Son looked at his best against WBA and now we have Lamela returning both Dele and Eriksen need to up their game, this is what I hope will happen. I also think Lamela eventually will bring that energy to the team that has gone, the high press which I hardly see now days, yes they play high but Dele and Eriksen don't really press high effectively.

I think if we had Wanyama, Toby, Lamela and Rose back to fitness and Aruier match fit with some weight loss we would be much better equipped to keep players on their toes, but too mnay injuries have meant players getting away with poor form imo. It's that lack of depth that has cost us as well, imagine if those players were fit and we had a bench of Son, Lamela, Winks, sissoko, llorente, and either Dembele or Dier depending who would partner Wanyama in midfield. Seriously that is a good bench if you consider our starting 11 as Lloris, Aruier or Trips, Sanchez, Toby, Verts, Rose, Wanyama and either dier or Dembele, Eriksen, Dele and Kane, and there is also Trips or Aruier and davies to add to the bench and that is without Foyth and GK. Just too many injuries and out of form players not being drooped, so welcome back Lamela and can't wait to see Toby and Wanyama back, then we will have serious competition. Add Barkley please and then I will be even happier.

Is it a lack of depth that is a problem or, is it our relative strength in depth (as it stands) that is good reason why we haven't actually had that many problems at all and that things aren't a darn sight worse? - The way I see it is that without some of our back-ups this and last season we would not have and, not now be doing as well as we have. ..... We have been up and down and in and out but it's our overall results and standing that counts, and will count at the end of the season. It really is early days and, only just a few days ago that we finished top of our CL group, let's not forget. And all this talk of Wembley woes, etc., well yes, of course it could be better but we have only actually lost there once in the PL all season and to the reigning PL champions no less. Our 3 losses all together in the PL have been to very good rivals, and not to the bus parkers of the world. I'm not saying everything at the moment is all fine and dandy but it most definitely isn't all that bad at all. - I might have to review this after tonight, but probably not.

We all perceive things differently of course. But recently, I have been reading a lot on here about our lack of crosses into the box, etc. But, interestingly it's Tottenham that sit top of the crosses stats in the PL.

Now, it means nothing when there is not a positive result from a lot of these crosses, but nevertheless, it is a fallacy that we don't put enough of them in to begin with. And yet some folks are convinced otherwise.

The most of those crosses are from Eriksen but next on the list for Spurs is Davies. But what does this signify anyway when both our two wing-backs along with Christian, are among the top 10 PL crossers and yet only one of their rivals in the top 19 of this particular stat (De Bruyne) are from the top 6 teams?

And what of Trippier? He is still our top player with assists and, overall, still one of the top 8 ones in the PL, with 4. Almost all of the others in the list are forwards. Walker is his only other wing-back rival (I think) in this, also with 4 PL assists. If we are missing him as much as some are thinking we do, then it's not so much in attack, and defensively, we are only 2 goals worse off than City.

So, often what we see and perceive to be so when watching our team is often not truly related to the facts and stats of the matter.

Also, what we often see as being crucial to how we play and how our results pan out because of these things, crossing, speed of a wing-back and their relative input, etc., is not always what it seems and not always as crucial to winning matches as we may think it to be.

The conclusion and the cliche in all this of course, is that it is win, lose or draw that are the most crucial stats of all. Regardless of how any one of us may view the overall picture and wether we are up, down, negative or positive about it all.

So, as you all were. ;-) :-(

By the way, I took those stats from the official PL website.

H-T, I agree the stats are interesting. Personally I don’t think the problem is Trippier and Davies, but rather a lack of MF creativity and a lack of tactical training and a goal-scoring alternative to Alli who seems to have his mind in his underpants at the moment.

Oh dear, it's not looking good for us at the moment. Something isn't working. I do wonder whether Wanyama absence is the key in the sense of really having a solid midfield although Dembele is playing well. How does sissoko get in and not Son? Do we need to revert back to a back 4 and put extra in the middle and close of their attack. I would like to see son and lamela on for Dier, go back to a back 4 and take Sissoko of, for all his running and effort he isn't going to score or create, at least lamela will work hard, run and more likely score or create.

If Leicester come at us trying to win then we will beat them, HAHAHAHAHAHAHA doing brilliantly aren't we the way they are taking the game to us and winning by 2 - 0 at half time. you lot of rose tinted glasses wearers really need to see that we are not going to finish top four this season. We played our hand last season and got found out, we are still trying to play with that busted flush and are getting nowhere fast. No wonder Rose wants out, there is a massive lack of ambition at this club. Has been for decades and is still there. Just look at the intensity on the Leicester players faces, then look at ours. Somone mentioned in a post that all our flair players seem to get over coached by having it coached out of them. I agree, just look at Eriksen when he plays for Denmark, he is brilliant and instinctive, playing for us he is lacking in almost everything in comparison. It's all very well developing youth, but let them play wth some youthful exuberance. I dread to think what they would have done to players like Hoddle, Waddle, Archibald, ossie and Ardiles.

E17YID - I think it's a bit premature to be having a go at Poch, we have hit a bad patch and in fairness he hasn't had a lot of options to sub Dele, Eriksen because of injuries.

I do question how Sissoko is seen as a first teamer over the likes Son, even Dembele in another game. yes he has improved but no way should he be playing before any of our regular first teamers, but he keeps getting the nod. That is strange for me.

I guess now we have to see how Poch and the players respond to this poor patch. I do wonder whether the efforts of the last 2 seasons have caught us with us in terms of mental fatigue, getting so close and missing our brings a whole lot of new motivation needed on a level they are probably not used to.

Anyway, they scored 2 in one half so no reason why we can't score 2 or even 3. A early goal needed to bring this alove in our favour.

One moment of class from Lamela did what Eriksen failed to do about 20 times during the game but really we were just a shocking mess the whole game. Terrible in defence, impotent in attack. Lots of the usual huff and puff, but with two useless wing-backs unable to beat their man and put in decent crosses...oh wait a minute I forgot it wasn't Tripps and Davies was it. Must be tactics then. I hate Christmas anyway but this one looks like being a doozie.

I agree Dier was dire. He needs to spend some time on the bench and earn his right to play. He slows the play down a lot and when he tries something different he misplaces the pass. Well this is a real test for us now, can we bounce back from poor form, that will show how good this team really is. Second half was better and Lamela looks good.

I do find it hard why we have so many skillful players yet non of them can cross a decent ball. Too much passing in front of opposition and trying to thread a ball through a tight defence. Non of our wing backs are playing well. All 4 are struggling in one area of another and its becoming a struggle with so many players off form. Where is Eriksens speciality free kicks and crosses,where has Dele gone, still Lamela is back and lets hope he can help turn this around

Watford only 3 points behind us and they are our next game, lose that and we could potentially be 8th by end of week.

This game has highlighted everything that has gone wrong with the team. Knackered players missing easy chances (notably Eriksen) or leaving gaps in defence (notably Dier), second rate players proving they are second rate (notably Sissoko and Llorente), Alli being the off form Alli he has been for most of the season. The only bright spots are Harry scoring yet again and Lamela coming on for a cameo and showing some of his old talent. But I am seriously worried about how we are going to cope with another game in just a few days not to mention the rush of games over the Xmas period.

Stan - I just wonder whether the players have mentally lost it after two hard fought seasons of going so close.

In a season where we have no home games at all it was always going to be tough. At the start I would have taken 4th place and have seen little to change that expectation.

I guess this spell is now going to get everyone together to take a good look at what is wrong and why this has happened. May be it needed to happen so everyone can start to come up with some solutions that will eventually take us forward.
