1-1 if we got hammered Ole would be gone, he deserves all the credit here. The turnaround begins.
Master stroke.

Phoenix from the flames.

Credit due.

Got a scrappy stream working on my phone and kept up with the main parts but will probably have to watch the full match tomorrow for any good insight into Oles tactics. The team looked like a different team from what I saw. Even Lindelof who I have little time for seemed to be getting stuck in.

I hope ole can do enough to keep his job until christmas. Obviously that means keeping us away from relegation. If we look like safe bet to stay up at Christmas I’d be delighted to give him until summer. If we look like we are in free fall around Christmas I will happily say I’m wrong and get behind the next fella.
My stream died 20 minutes in.

Good god almighty.

I watched it on my phone I said. My paid stream died. I watched it on a free not great stream but watched the match. Missed all the var stuff though. You will see me asking about it in the forum not knowing what was going on at the time.

Tactics in the second half were awful waiting for them to score

Disappointed we couldn’t see it out tho, it’s just very frustrating that the team can put in a performance like this and we’ll more than likely roll over for Norwich next week.
I legit do not know how anybody could say that Fred or Pereira had a good game. Pereira broke down so many attacks with poor decision making and Fred was a headless chicken who is massively negative in possession and gets caught on the ball too often. McT was good, as was Rashford and James. Rest were all okay bar Fred and Pereira.

A point is really point-less, we are in a state of limbo here.

Are we going to pick up 6 points from Norwich and Chelsea? I highly doubt it, if we are on 13/14 points after 11 games you could say with a reasonable degree of certainty that we will finish on around 50-60 points this season at best, which means a finish anywhere between 7th-11th looking at last years table, so the league season is pretty much a write off.

I think from the PR comments this week they all but confirm that Ole will be given a full season unless we are pulled into a relegation battle, I think we will get to the knockouts of the europa and that’s what is going to keep Ole in the job, they’ll give him some money to spend in January for a tilt at that competition and see how it goes, if we go out early they’ll get rid of Ole when top 4 is mathematically impossible which could be March/April at the rate we are going.

Norwich and Chelsea?

Norwich, Bournemouth, Brighton, Sheffield United, Aston Villa.

Let's see if we can string together a few results like when Ole joined.

The performance and result didnt worry me

What did worry me is another injury and this in warm up.

I know injuries happen but there has to be more to it than bad luck.

He’s actually right !! Go get Kane !!

What are you staring at !!

Same way we got Cole , Yorke, Rooney ,Saha , Berbatov RVP .

We have historically bought the best strikers from clubs , go get Kane !

I think Kane priced himself out of a move by signing that contract extension.

Spurs would ask for a ridiculous amount of money for him

Thing is Kane has not been as good as he was the last while, not sure if it is the ankle injuries or if it is tactics but he is not the same player he was a two seasons ago. Our team is already full of injury prone players do we want another who is already seems to be on the wane slightly?

If 47 goals in 71 appearances is considered to be on the same, we are really judging him by how bloody excellent he was for 4 years prior.

I do agree he's had some niggles , but he's still going to be a 20+ a season person for the next few years I'd say.

He'd also cost a near world record fee unless spurs really Have to sell for some reason. English premium, Levy, Proven premier league and world class really.

Rashford saying that they started inviting pressure and stopped doing what they did in the first half in his interview. Might be a little telling, stopped short of saying it was tactical imo

Always get this feeling that Kane would tank if he left Spurs. Just feel like playing there fits him.
