I appreciate that fact but if it is possible to do it away from home against decent sides (Ajax/City...regardless of luck) then surely the task is relatively 'easier' when you are at home and the team you are playing is one of the worst in the league. Why do you put words into my mouth ? I never said I thought it was easy for us to come back against Villa or City but the team did it and they did so with a spirit and commitment to the task that was visibly lacking today. That kind of attitude tends to bring it's own luck because you are constantly applying pressure and creating chances. First shot on target for us today...33rd minute...says it all.He didn’t say it was impossible, just that it wasn’t easy. Most of the time the team that scores first goes on to win. When you score first it puts control of the match in your hands and you can just wait for the opponent to come out and kill the game.
If you think it was easy for us to come back against Villa and City then you must have been watching different games, we were labouring big time against Villa and won thanks to a lucky bounce through to Kane. We were swamped by City and somehow snatched something, saved only by VAR at the end. We are not good enough to keep giving daft goals away thinking we can just score 2 or 3 goals a game. We are not that type of team right now, we haven’t been for a long time.
First priority for Poch has to be finding a team that can consistently keep clean sheets. Then we can go from there.
We already put on our attacking subs and the remaining options were Gazzaniga, Davies, Vertonghen, Dier and Skipp. The closest thing to an attacking player we had from that lot was Davies, Rose didn’t have one decent cross or pass all game so why not sub him off? Poch tried to send him away to Watford on the last day of the window, if Davies and Sessegnon were fully fit he wouldn’t even be involved.
If Poch's first priority is keeping a clean sheet then a very close second has to be where the goals are going to come from. I don't mind Spurs conceding just one goal every game and never having a clean sheet all season, as long as we can go up the other end and put two past the opposition.
