No Start for Harry - Match Preview

No Start for Harry - Match Preview




After a nice weekend off, we re-engage in the battle for forth in earnest against Swansea. I watched their game against Watford as I suspect many of you would have as well, 85 minutes of being dominated and riding their luck and then they pulled off a remarkable turnaround.

It was the dreaded new coach bounce; we now have to make sure that their bounce doesn't reoccur this time at their home. We have to face two matches in three days and both look potential banana skins, somewhat ridiculously our re-arranged game against West Ham follows this game on Thursday and we can be certain that against us they'll be up for it.

Poch has to plan for this fixture congestion, as Football does, it now throws up the prospect of Llorente facing his old club as Harry tries to get over one of those winter debilitating bugs. I was told this morning that even if he declares himself ok to play, chances are he won't start and we will try and given him a bit more recovery time for Thursday's game.

So a game without Harry starting

Carlos Carvalhal was a surprise left-field appointment, and he's started well with that 2-1 away win against Watford and against the odds.

Their confidence will have improved for that 'I think this win is a step forward,' Ayew told the club's official website. 'Now we have to keep going and push to get more results' he continued:

'Football is all about confidence. We know we can do better things with confidence. But, also, if you don't work hard then you get punished. '

'The new manager has only been here for two days, but he has had a positive impact. His ideas are clear and direct. He wants us to run more in the game and be more aggressive with our play. We delivered that and deserved the win.'


So we can expect them to try and match us for a high tempo and ground covered. But we have the quality and if we do start with Llorente and Lamela as I expect, perhaps along with Winks with Victor Wanyama possibly making his first appearance since August from the subs bench, we should have too much for them.

We've not lost against Swansea since the a league meeting in October '82 and I don't expect to see that change now what I do expect is them to sit deep again and try and play on the counter.

They exasperated us at Wembley as it finished a frustrating 0-0, despite us having 26 shots (just 8 on target) to Swansea's four (0 on target).

With or without Harry, they won't hold us at bay this time as at some point they'll open up, and then we'll take them apart and our march into the Top 4 will continue and jump ahead of that mob down the road.

We could really have done with Liverpool, in particular, and/or Man Utd dropping points yesterday. Liverpool made seven changes to the team that beat Leicester on Saturday and still beat Burnley. It's very unlikely we could do that. Man Utd lose Lukaku and Ibrahimovich, yet simply move Martial to the central position and can still afford to rest Rashford. it just shows how important depth of squad is.

Nonetheless, we do have a big advantage over Swansea tonight. We've had a weeks' rest whilst they had a tough away game at Watford on Saturday. So long as we keep it tight and don't concede in the first half, we should have too much for them in terms of skill and fitness as the game wears on.

If Harry is now well, has trained and is fully recovered, I'm sure he will start. I would also like to think that if he isn't feeling top notch, he is to be rested.

Spurs are back to some good form these past few games bar the one against City and have been playing some very good looking football. I see no reason for this not to continue. The only obstacle I can see to a top, top performance tonight is that Pochettino and the players must have one eye on the WHU match, knowing that we have no real recovery time in between. For this reason, I don't expect the players to be over exerting themselves unless they really have to. I think we might need to be patient and measured in our play but should still be reasonably comfortable in getting the win. But, we never know. The Swans may play a blinder, with some all-out, no-nonsense attacking football and take us all by surprise. (I doubt it).

Should I go for narrow but uncomplicated win or do I predict another hatful of Tottenham goals with another Harry hat trick? A hat trick of hat tricks?! Well, if he's out then that won't be happenning. But, as is my want, I'm still going for the Cockerels to blow the Swans clean out of the water.

Swansea City 0-6 Tottenham Hotspur!

In view of the forthcoming game in just two days, for once, I'd be happy with the '1-0 will do' mantra. Personally I wouldn't want to see us start on a 'measured' approach as longer it goes with 0-0 the more confident Swans will get. Following their win v Watford, their tails may be up, so I'd rather try to put the game to bed in 1st half and control it in 2nd including early subs. Several managers are complaining about the schedule and the 2 games in 48 hours is just ludicrous. For once we DO have the advantage because of the high level of fitness regime we operate under. 2-0 Spurs. COYS!

Critical_Spur. My point about having a measured approach is of course dependent on how well the Swans set up and how well they play. But, it should pay off if we are sensible in how we approach the game, knowing that the team doesn't have time to rest before the Hammers. We do generally go for the early goal from the kick-off but it may not come. We can't be sure of this and so if it doesn't, then a professional and patient approach may well be required. And, 1-0 will of course be acceptable and especially if the Swans make it particularly tough for us. They may not. But as I said, a measured approach is probably what we should expect. I didn't say from the start. I'm looking at the full 90 minutes. I see no problem with this. They are not machines and we do need to be fighting fit for Wembley and the bubble-blowers. We just don't know but MP's tactics are rarely gung-ho and the players really shouldn't need to over-work themselves to get a positive result if they are professional and patient.

I don't expect all supporters to be particularly patient themselves but that's their problem. At least the Spurs away support at the grounds, tends to be loud and proud and they will do their utmost to encourage the players in a positive way.

You'd like to think that this would be a great opportunity to rotate. From the reports I've read, Swansea will be missing as many as 5 starting players. Given the schedule, we need to give some key players a rest. If our B team can't beat Swansea's B team, we have problems.

HT, the 'measured' comment was not directed at your post as I too have used it many a times in the past. I also hate the term a 'must win' game, but feel that this time round it is a valid one as there is a risk of a gap developing between the 4th and 5th place. I do think Swans will have a good go from the off rather than park the proverbial. The new manager has apparently asked for a more aggressive effort over 90 mins. Here's hoping the longer rest for our lads doesn't bring with it complacency and that we make our customary charge in the 2nd half of the season.

It was a joke... But nonetheless a squad is a squad is a squad. But then again, if not being a regular 1st choice IS to be seen as a "B" rated player, then no wonder we haven't got an amazing 20 odd goals a season striker on the bench. Who would want to come to Spurs to be considered a B team player if elsewhere, he's considered good enough for the A-team?

That's a question you can ask of any player on the bench at a top 6 team. They're all good enough to start for the other 70% of PL teams. I was watching Burnley v. Liverpool yesterday and it was Mane's first start in a few weeks, with a front 3 of Firmino, Salah and Coutinho currently being first choice. When players like Mane and Lallana are in the B team, you know they've got wonderful attacking players and depth... They have other weaknesses however.

If the weather is as bad as that forecast then perhaps the match will be abandoned anyway. It hardly sounds conducive to good football. Or indeed, any kind of football. The Liberty stadium is a nice stadium but pretty exposed to the local elements.

There is no B team! There are squad players and of course some are better than others and they can't all play every week. So, we can now see a scenario whereby Lamela could well be kept out by an on form Son, whereas before he was injured, Lamela was 1st choice over Son. Dele would not have been considered 1st choice when he arrived. Hugo had to wait a good few games before his debut and Kane had to play for the likes of Millwall, etc, before Tim came along. And even when MP arrived, he was 3rd choice behind Defoe and Ade. So, I insist, there is no B team but a whole squad of players competing for a start and hopefully being good enough to be a regular 1st choice. Albeit, no matter how good you are it will always be difficult to replace a top performing player or retain your position when covering for injury etc. What about Wanyama now? Will he return good enough to replace Dier. Or will it be Dembele that needs to step down. If Trippier plays better than ever for a couple of matches, is Aurier then to be considered second best. Or simply a very good alternative and, vice versa, of course...... Blah, blah.

HT - that would make sense if at the end of the year, every player featured in about the same amount of games, and players were rotated in and out of the 11 frequently, based on form. However, that is very rarely how this plays out in most squads, with usually a clear-cut 11 accounting for most of the starts, and squad players/B players (however you want to call them) occasionally coming in. The harsh reality is that a clear pecking order exists at most clubs, including ours. On form alone, Alli should have been dropped several times this year. Yet he kept his place. In theory, football is a meritocracy. In the harsh modern game when agents negotiate contracts with guarantees about playing time, it very often works out quite differently.

To back this up, have a look at the appearance totals for last year and tell me that you can't see clear trends. Or the year before... Compared Janssen's season totals with Kane's. Compare Wimmer's season totals with Jan's. Hugo's with Vorm's,... No B team? That doesn't mean those players aren't any good. It just means that if everyone's available and injuries don't disrupt the plans, most players are nailed on to start. At very few clubs is there a true competition for places.

Well, it's not so clear to me about Alli and it wasn't to Poch either. I insisted he should not be dropped whereby others insisted he should. Some still are. It's not as clear cut as that at all. Some will insist that Wanyama is a better player than Dier but as yet he may not prove to be so after his long absence and may find it hard to regain his best form. This is just about your choice of the term B team. And I'm sorry but there isn't in reality a B team...... I think perhaps you are taking me too seriously in this....... Even so my points are completely valid and it is a called a squad these days for good reason. Long gone are the days of when I can remember when there were no subs and there really was just an actual 1st 11. But not always the exact same 11. For obvious reasons.

Watching Trippier and Davies run forwardthen stop and pass back to the centre back is, quite probably, the most frustrating part of our game. You would think that with the condition of the field we would be taking some shots from 30-35 yards out, just to see what happens.

Good free-Kick, good headed finish but very lucky goal as Llorente was well off-side. Conditions atrocious and I can see the game being abandoned if the rain doesn't stop soon. I know Swansea are defending deep but our tactics of pass, pass, pass with no end product on a night like this against a packed defence are a waste of time. Should be bombarding their back line with long balls and then picking up the second balls to create scoring opportunities. Sanchez still hasn't learned the rules of UK football compared to what you can get away with in Columbia, where short of actually killing someone any sort of manhandling and barging are considered fair play. if we don't step it up a notch or two it could come back to bite us as one goal is a very thin margin. So far we have looked toothless in attack.

The great result hides a very poor performance imo. Can't see us getting anything if we play like that against the Spammers, as its going to be their cup final. They got the result tonight too. We seemed a yard or 2 off the pace tonight. Our quality got us the win in the end, although Dele did his best not to score :) He did nothing of note for 85 minutes then pops up with the vital second to kill the game off, that's why he's difficult to drop. Enough of my ramblings, waiting for ITs Me and Frank's synopsis. Credit to Swansea though, who hit the post and missed after rounding Lloris. Great to have Wanyama back in DM. We'll need him and Dier in CM against the Spammers. Maybe the pitch was a factor as we like to play smoothly.

Our defence had no worries at all. Unless we seriously expect them to not have to actually defend for an entire game. Sanchez played well.

Please everyone recognise how difficult it is to play 'perfect' football in those kind of weather conditions. Surely it is plain to see......... The only positive is Wanyama and the 3 points H-K.

Before we get disheartened it was tough conditions and also we didn't have Kane on the pitch. We played alright considering the weather, still tried to move the ball and pass, and yes mistakes were made in these conditions and luckily we didn't get punished. I think this was always going to be hard due to having one eye on Thursday and then the FA cup which I suspect we will really want to win and go through, as I think the players will want to put the CC exit right with a good win on Sunday, so tonight was about no injuries and three points and it happened to be in awful weather. Job done.

I expect kane is a little disheartened about coming on, or not starting, as I think he would have liked his next game to be one where he had a good chance of another hatrick, three in a row, but he wasn't started and now he has played half an hour. Still he got an assist in that short time.

Dele looks to be getting back to his form with his edgy playing, that goal will do him a world of good.

The lads recover enough to have enough steam for Thursday. Kane should be up for it. Dele is young and should be ok. I am concerned about Eriksen playing full game and probably play Thursday as Lamela will not play so soon. I thought Lamela was not making any impact today, but that is to be expected, we want see his best until next season if he is still with us. Great to see Wanyama back, I was concerned because of the conditions but he seem alright, just match fitness now I expect.
Rose missing with knee injury is that true or is there something else going on!.

Didn't think Llorente did anything great, got a lucky goal, but is not the answer to Kanes back up imo. Time to rethink for next season re Kanes backup unless a pre season will make him better prepared next season!.

well done lads for that battle and guts, three points and now we need the same Thursday, that isn't going to be easy for sure, espcially as Westham just snathced a late goal to win, and they usually get late goals against us so got to play right up to the end and be really competative and focused against them.

We can't compare this game to Swansea and every game is different.

For sure the lads will be more than motivated, they will want revenge after the CC loss to them and it being a Derby and to get three points to take fifth spot over Arsenal, enough motivation for Thursday me thinks.

Awful game. Don't stay up to watch it. We were dominant but impotent. Llorente never touches the ball except for his offside header. Kane comes on and looks for the ball and what a pass to set up Dele. Wanyama and Lamela look good. Notice that Tom tippy tappy sideways Carroll is just the same lightweight. Lloris still flaps when he can catch and his distribution is poor. Other than that we thoroughly deserved it. Hopefully, we will sneak into 4th place by the end of the season. Time to get rid of Llorente and Sissoko and sign Barkley. No messing about Levy.... get the cheque book out we need to strengthen the squad.... we are a long way behind ManC, Manu and Chelsea.

We play in a way (mostly) that we need to play in. If that was Real tonight and not Swansea we would almost definitely have played a lot better. Why? Quite simply, because we would have had to up our game and, because we are a bloody good team. Man City struggled against Palace of all teams. If only they had played like that against Spurs. :-)

Job done...the hard way. Was concerned that we may yet again concede from a corner. How Swansea didn't equalise (deservedly) in the 2nd half is beyond me. I guess that's why they are where they are in the table. Our passing was really poor and I can't blame the weather for it as Swansea had no problem finding the white shirts for a pass..or two. I'll take the lucky 1st and to an extent almost as lucky a 2nd goal. I doubt Dele knew where the ball was gonna ricochet to. Fantastic ball from Harry. A sick Harry is worth two AM's any time! History will say a routine 2- 0 win. I'll take that as we stay on a roll. Now want the bubbles well and truly burst on Thurs. COYS!

No CS. Again it's yet another case of the opposition being invisible to a Spurs supporter. Swansea gave the ball away time and time again. We passed it very well most of the time given the swamp and the fact that we probably passed the ball 5000 more times than they did. What is wrong with you all. Have none of you ever played just one game of football in those kind of weather conditions? We were comfortable and we won. Yes Swansea could've done better. And yes they usually don't do better. Spurs did what they needed to do. Simple.

It wasn't at all hard........ We made light of the game. It was like a bloody practise match for us.

I know most of you probably disagree with me but I don't give a damn when we win. If we had lost then I would understand you all. Goodnight all you lovely spuds. I'm off to dig a parked bus out from a waterlogged trench... Somewhere north of Bristol.

I think that our quality will get us a good few points even when we play poorly, but consistently good performances will get us where we want to be. Of course getting the 3 points is the most important thing, but performance is a very close second.

Haha... The bad weather has now hit London. I just made an attempt to put out my rubbish and got smacked in the face by a flying dustbin.... I looked over my shoulder and I swear, I saw Andros Townsend aiming that bin for my neighbours front garden on the opposite side of the road, at least 35 yards away from where I was standing!.
