Yeh, Colchester were disciplined and frustrated us.
Don’t patronise me - I watched the game. That team wasn’t the same team that played Colchester. If you’re so desperate to denigrate Spurs, maybe find a different correspondent? There are plenty on here to chose from.Yeh, Colchester were disciplined and frustrated us.
They got in close and made sure most of our shots or dangerous passes were blocked.
With the ball Red Star were certainly more of a threat than Colchester - but ultimately they conceded 5 goals and deserved to concede more.
Maybe watch the goals again and pay attention to their defending as well as our attacking.
(I guess we sign off with insults here?)
It's nonsense to act like they are some kind of League Two side anyway; earlier this season they beat Olympiacos 3-1 and in Munich it was only 1-0 until Lewandowski scored the 2-0 in the 80th minute. Serbia's SuperLiga is obviously not the greatest league in Europe, but you don't win 10 out of 11 matches there with a bunch of farmers.We’ve played plenty of shite teams recently and not won 5-0. Some people literally hate the fact we played well tonight. I thought the problem was that we couldn’t beat shite teams? What a place. I’ll leave you to your misery.

Apologies for the ‘twat’ - you’re clearly new Spurs to the bone.
Really wasn't 'attempting to take the gloss off it' but I wont get carried away with the result either.Your criticism of Red Star was clearly an attempt to take the gloss off Spurs’ performance. I’m not daft, I’m not raging and I’m not confused - and it’s ‘criterion’. That team didn’t play Colchester, so why pretend it did? You can guess the rest.
You sure BC?Just on a very basic level this is pretty disingenuous. Nobody is suggesting swapping Winks and NDombele around - ie playing Ndombele as the deep holder and Winks as the progressive 8.
This was the message to which I was replying. Disingenuousness case dismissed.To be fair; give Winks the Ndombele role and you'll see a different Winks.
I think Winks has got a longterm role as well (unlike Carroll and all the other MF academy folks you defend beyond their abilities). But stop using descriptive stats to justify. Yes, on the whole Winks might hit some 'forward' passes. The issue that folks are talking about is he rarely breaks a line with a pass i.e. does anything with the ball. Hitting a ball from deep to a FB that is positioned slightly ahead of him is a a forward pass and that is tied up in your statistics. But when was the last time you saw him break a line with a pass? It's all in front of the defense and no fucking threat.I think until everyone is fit, and we get a proper 6, Winks is still viable in some capacity. After that, I think he becomes a squad player.

Simpatico Joe Clash .... Been off the forums during this stretch as I figured it has been an awful place to talk football. I have been twisted in knots with some of the performances recently. What a pleasure to see us play so well tonight under the lights.What a place. I’ll leave you to your misery.
We need at least a draw at Anfield now. Then we can say we've turned the corner.
