Today was a bad day at the end (hopefully) of a bad run. We were weak and Spurs were ruthless.

It's not the end of the world though, we've still got a decent squad, a few really good players and a DoF & manager with the right vision for the club, who are backed by an owner who will spend.

I think we really need to get a RB, CM and a Striker before we can start really seeing Silva and Brands’ vision.

Big worry is the dip in form of the new players Digne,Gomes,Mina Not the same extent but Zouma as well, they all hit the ground running and all have dipped dramatically over the last few games, without comparing recent regimes too soon it's hard not to feel a bit of deja vu.

They're all used to having a Xmas break for a little rest and feet up  ;)

The morning after the night before! Ugh...

Did I really get thrown out of that bar after throwing up on the bouncer? Who the hell is that in the bed next to me (and what’s his name?) Did a clear 2-0 lead turn into a 6-2 defeat at home by Spurs?

Nah! Chrimbo nightmares. Too much cheese and wine before bed probably..

Drank too many beers and watched Elf last night. And cried at the ending ffs. Everton are destroying me.

Oh well, off to the parents house later today.
I have to return some videotapes.

Vamos lá Everton!

He’s going 4-3-3 eventually, isn’t he. Surely?

Really don’t know how to solve the Sigurdsson situation. Clearly a very, very good player who is scoring goals...but we have to accommodate him up top where he puts in about 20-25 passes a game. He’s a passenger for too much of the play, while opposition sides stroll through the middle of the pitch.

Gomes Gana Davies worth a go I think, if we’re really never going to see Sigurdsson in CM which it doesn’t look like we will.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

I'm sorry, but Davies brings nothing to the team. He hasn't pushed on at all. Siggurdson is a problem, but keeps on bagging goals so can't be dropped I don't think.

If we can buy a CM in jan that we actually want then sound we deffo should but until then he’s our next best CM I suppose?

Also he wasn’t even that bad yesterday was he? I mean no worse than anyone else.

Hard to judge isn’t it, Gylfi produced a bit of brilliance for both our goals yesterday.

Can see why he ended up on the wing at Spurs

You can see what Silva is trying to do but it's not clicking right now. The hope is he isn't a stubborn as Martinez in terms of refusal to adapt philosophy

He’s so good, but so quiet.

Look at what poch has done with Erickson or pep has done with De Bruyne. Flighty, shooty 10s with no locomotion transformed into complete CMs who can be involved in all phases of build up, rather than just around the box.

The Icelandic stats nutter would always post about how Gylfi produces chances at a better rate (less passes to create a chance), but I actually think that’s a bad thing. He’s ball shy, and the more you get your best players on the ball taking more touches the better your team is imo.

I’d hate to see him on the bench because he’s a born match winner. But there’s definitely an argument there that we aren’t good enough as a team to carry someone who only wants the ball on the edge of the box

He was anonymous most of the game. Hardly noticed he was there as Spurs ran through midfield as if it wasn't there. He wasn't the only one true. Who can we realistically go for and get in January though?
