MATCH REVIEW: Tottenham Hotspur 0-1 Newcastle United
I’m not going to take out my anger on camera, so I’m going to do this review on text form.
Today was absolutely embarrassing. We lost to potentially the worst team in the Premier League, and we 100% deserved to.
I’m not listening to this bullshit about how we wouldn’t have lost if it wasn’t for Mike Dean and VAR, Newcastle created better chances and more chances in the first half, although we had 76% possession.
I mainly blame this defeat on Poch today. He treated this game like it meant nothing. Every game means everything. Anything can happen in football, and the Champions League games showed that last season. Every game, Poch has to set up the team tactically right, and recently the lineups have been tactically naive.
As soon as I noticed they Eriksen wasn’t starting, I already knew that we weren’t going to do much. Without Eriksen, we create much less chances.
Also, what the fuck is Poch doing leaving Jan out the squad. He’s our most experienced defender, and your benching him? It doesn’t matter if it’s only Newcastle, I feel so much more comfortable when he’s in the defence, his positioning is excellent. Our defending for their goal was shambolic. I like Sanchez, but he is still a young prospect, we cannot start him all the time. Jan knows what to do, and I love him and Toby together.
I like Lamela. He works hard, and tries his best. But why are you playing him when we already have Son and Lucas in the team. Lamela cannot make things happen through the middle, and today showed that. As soon as Eriksen and Lo Celso came on, we were creating a few more chances, and we could’ve easily scored a couple. But certain players looked rusty today.
I’m seriously becoming more worried, and I’m seriously starting to question Poch’s arrogance. He has to get the lineup correct for the Arsenal game next week, because if we don’t get a result, we’ve only got 4 out of 12 points, where it should be 7.
I believe we can come back, and we can, we’ve had a rusty start, and we seriously need to be on top after the return from the international break.
Tottenham Till I Die 💙💙💙
