Taken from RM's post match interview:
I felt that while Spurs had a lot of the ball in the first half they were playing into our hands a little bit.  We stopped their main threat and were disappointed to concede from such a direct ball but the way we grew into the second half and could use the squad was very, very pleasing.

UH?? Played in to our hands? We got outplayed and were shocking. This is like a boxer saying "I let him keep punching me to tire him out. It was part of my fight plan"

Gotta say that reading this thread after getting back it seems like most people seem reasonably happy with that.  We shouldn't.  We were absolute garbage in the first half anf they should have been out of sight.  It was like watching a training session with us down to 8 players or something.  The ease with which they could find space between our lines - particularly between defence and midfield, was shocking.  And the acres of space AGAIN down our left that Pochetino was desperately pushing his team to exploit was baffling.    there was poor concentration throughout and sloppy play but we got away with it.  Yes it was a good second half.  Yes Lennon took his goal nicely but you can't play for 45 mins and screw up the rest.

To be fair, they are better than us if I'm brutally honest (some may disagree) but for me, that 1st half display was expected. They're fitter, more athletic, agile and have a very talented manager at the helm so overall, I think  we did very well to challenge them in the second half.

I'm just annoyed about how Martinez set us up to play square passing again in our own half, against a very good side that tactically use intense pressing which surely would nullify our own half passing game. It was so obvious how it were going to pan out. That's the part I'm really disappointed with.
