    Robbo shocked at fitness comments...

    I know a bunch of military and ex military lads. They're fighting fit of course but I think people severely underestimate the fitness levels of elite sportsmen, even if they're not at their current peak. Then there's different types of fitness of course. Usain Bolt looked fucked after a few...

    Robbo shocked at fitness comments...

    this is my point though. They’re only unfit by new PL standards. They’d probably all do fine in a military fitness test.

    Robbo shocked at fitness comments...

    That's interesting to me. To my eye watching clips of old games it seems to me that the players are far fitter than they were even a few years ago on average. The Kyle Walkers of the game used to be the freaks, now it's expected of every cheap random signing to be doing 12km a game in sprints or...

    MotM vs Leeds (H)

    It was Dier imo but I voted Winks so the percentage represented his performance more fairly. Sky giving it to Reggie was pretty funny though was pleased he got his goal. Suspect he'll score a few under Conte.

    Robbo shocked at fitness comments...

    this wasn't just a Nuno problem. We dropped down the distance covered chart with Poch. Then I feel it got worse under Jose (there were rumours the club weren't even doing the minimum fitness training under Mou). Didn't Nuno even make the point that he didn't have enough training sessions with...

    Hojbjerg - symptom or cause

    I've taken to perversely analysing every time he's involved and then looking at what happens after and feeling vindicated. He was a liability in the first half, and Winks (who was getting pelters on twitter & etc) was doing really well covering for him (and the others) and winning the ball back...

    Spurs Player Ratings 2021/ 22

    Lloris 7 - V solid performance, no spectacular saves needed to be made but did what he should do well. Emerson 5 - Was targeted and struggled. Been better lately than he was on this, beaten too easily for their goal. Japhet 7 - solid Dier 8 (MOTM) - played very well, interesting to see him...

    Spurs Player Ratings 2021/ 22

    set up both chances that hit the post and won the foul that lead to Reggie goal. Not saying he was worth a 9 but in the creativity vacuum that is Spurs front line he was at least trying to make things happen and nearly did on a couple occasions.

    New coaching appointments..

    Here's the vid. Really nice that they have that connection. Ryan seems like a smart guy and will now have worked under Poch, Jose and Conte - hopefully he can keep learning and become a top coach for us and possibly future manager

    Ah that's a shame, it was on my list of reasons to rationally dislike Sherwood. Still a couple of pages long mind...

    Harry Kane - Player Thread

    seeing a lot of people irate he scored a 1st half hat trick for Albania. Clearly forgetting he scored a 2nd half hat trick against NS Mura Give him service and shit opposition and he'll score a boatload

    Journo claims Conte gets who he wants...

    On further reading I notice it was 2010-2020 he based the numbers off so I assume it made a better headline if they worked it out pre-covid?

    What do you make of Kieran Maguire's figures on how much cash we have to spend before falling foul of FFP?

    believe that was under advisement from one of Spurs sharpest minds, Tim "nice" but dim

    Call ups and the Internationals thread..

    great to see he's not had his confidence crushed. Maybe a championship loan in Jan as I'd imagine Conte won't be playing him too much?

    Call ups and the Internationals thread..

    we're 6 points off top 4 with a relatively easy run coming up with only a couple really tough games on paper before the Jan window opens. I would imagine Daniels' eyes will light up at the potential CL money if Conte gets us close to being in the mix by the time the window opens and the...

    Hojbjerg - symptom or cause

    That's interesting coz whilst I agree with the rest of your post this is pretty much the last word I'd use for him. At least positionally I think he lacks discipline and leaves us exposed when he does a random foray forward and then fails to win the ball back far up the pitch. Then spectates...

    Hojbjerg - symptom or cause

    Saw an interesting stat comparison of Gio vs Kante on twitter where it was proposed he's actually closer to Kante than Eriksen. He did do well playing deeper a bit last season but I don't really know what his best position is if I'm honest. I'm desperate for him and Tanguy to both come good, but...

    Hojbjerg - symptom or cause

    You're not alone - many feel the same way, even though I feel the opposite I'm surprised how one sided this has been so far considering how loud the "first name on the teamsheet" shouts were not long ago. What do you think are the right tactics to bring the best out of him?
