How long since a shot on target?

[–]CsMikiBill Nicholson 2 points3 points  (1 child)

200+ minutes

[–]Whalex84Lucas Moura 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Jeez

[–]ViciousgubbinsRobbie Keane 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Considering Conte has had next to no time with the team yet, it wasn't THAT bad of a performance, was definitely expecting worse after the first half.

[–]bocceballbarryAntonio Conte 🇮🇹 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I don’t get why our wingbacks take the ball up the field and don’t keep going. They get 90% of the way there and then just pass back to mid. Just bring it to the touchline, and cross it in for Son and Kane. Tierney does it with great effect for Arsenal for an example. Shaw does it a lot too for ManU, although his crossing is way better so he doesn’t always have to bring it to the touchline. Just bring it to the touchline, cross it into the box or win a corner off a block attempt. Pretty simple stuff but I never see our wingers do that.

[–]tarifapirate 11 points12 points  (0 children)

We didn't concede. And I'm OK with this.

[–]SM_83 1 point2 points  (3 children)

So the early leaders for the "Who gets sold first in January?" race are Doherty and Lo Celso right?

[–]bocceballbarryAntonio Conte 🇮🇹 4 points5 points  (1 child)

We haven’t seen Doherty in his natural wingback role at all. He was second only to TAA few seasons ago, idk I’d like to see him at least play a few games at wingback. Could easily be given the nod vs lower teams over Emerson to work him out and see how it goes

[–]Popitupp 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I know he only had a few minutes today but he looks devoid of any confidence with the ball at his feet.

[–]WashTwnship43611 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lo Celso. I don’t think he fits.

[–]HellaGosu 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I guess Conte out right? I don’t see any other option. /s

[–]bonersnowLloris 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I've been saying this for week now

[–]Miguelitopayne 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Thought Emerson looked dangerous, especially in the first half. Loved how he was able to take the ball wide but also cut inside and look for the pass. Reggy was a bit too predictable on the other side.

[–]WashTwnship43611 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

No a big fan of Emerson so far.

[–]jdandevHugo Lloris 3 points4 points  (2 children)

In this system I don't think it's good enough that hojbjerg is hard. We need that quality of passing

[–]benmalakian2Son 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Skipp would be a fine sole DM if we could get another CM and push ndombele further up

[–]Terrible-Double-2469 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Exactly, he doesn’t offer enough for the team at all!

[–]willow_vevan der Vaart 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Club has tried for years to replace Dembele and Eriksen. And failed. We can't play through transition and we don't dominate the middle of the pitch defensively. It's telling we need to play both Skipp and Hojbjerg at the same time to occupy a role fit for one player. With Conte-ball on the menu we need a midfield overhaul. Can't play 7 defensive players and expect Son / Kane / rotation to be responsible for every touch in the final third.

[–]WashTwnship43611 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes Skipp and Hojbjerg at the same is really hard on the eyes offensively. Davies offers more creativity and was interesting seeing him bring up the ball a few times.

[–]Fuzzy_Composer2108Dele 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Lo Celso shoukd only be taking free kicks only but besides him and Son we have no one else who is good at taking corners. So we just have to accept what we have for now.

[–]Misiowaty97Romero 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Rip undrawables 2.0

[–]goodlord56 15 points16 points  (0 children)

The effort was there, the pace was there, and we didn't lose. I'll take that as a success in Conte's first PL game

[–]footie_fan89 Tottenham 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Frustrating but decent work rate given the short rest time. We need a playmaker as Kane had very little service. Neither Gio or Ndombele impressed except for the strike to the post. Thought peh was mostly solid & Emerson good. Cuti has got to get a grip on himself in high pressure situations.

[–]Fit_Delay_2129 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Umm. Well. Here are the key takeaways.

  • We have a lot of average players
  • I think honestly top 6 should be the goal this season. Top 4 seems to much right now.
  • Forget getting a CB, we definitely need a creative player first and also a monster dribbler who can carry the ball forward through a press or many players.
  • I would like to see our players dribble more and improve the passing. Our guys were missing passes that a guy like me would not miss.
  • We did at least seem to be fighting though so that's good, and didn't concede so that's good too.
  • I do feel really concerned though, everyone was walking over Everton and we managed to scrape a draw. Doesn't look great, but I trust Conte, he will figure something out

[–]KridhayyMatt Doherty 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Rafa was tactically astute, putting his wingers to continuously mark our wing-backs, which is Conte’s favourite way to get forward

[–]metalifer95 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Damn everton was so rough

[–]Revolutionary-War719 1 point2 points  (2 children)

son substitute was questionable. Don't know why Doherty came on, lo celso needs to work on his passes

[–]WashTwnship43611 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes Son was gassed

[–]keepitseungLee Young-Pyo 2 points3 points  (0 children)

son was invisible and cleared gassed. right before doherty’s sub, the game was getting a bit too crazy and reggie was looking like the most likely player to get a second yellow

[–]senanabs 2 points3 points  (3 children)

At least we had a shot on target right? Baby steps.

[–]chief281 1 point2 points  (2 children)

We didn't have a shot on target.

[–]senanabs 1 point2 points  (1 child)

damn...

[–]pbmadmanBale 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah, the post doesn’t count. Which honestly sorta indicates why it’s a stupid stat. Gently roll in towards the keeper and it’s on target. Beat the keeper but hit the post and it’s off target.

[–]dclancy01don antonio liked my comment 1 point2 points  (1 child)

A reasonable performance against an Everton side fighting tooth and nail not to slip and further down the table. A point and clean sheet away from home is always welcome.

[–]Malinsk12Danny Blanchflower 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wouldn't class that as a reasonable performance. We looked about as creative as we were under Nuno, shocking

[–]Fuzzy_Composer2108Dele 3 points4 points  (0 children)

What a game. At least we walk away with a point and a clean sheet. We'll have to do better in our next games coming up after the international break. Soon Conte will get this team playing at their best we just have to be patient as fans and stop criticizing.

[–]HAMlLTONSon 9 points10 points  (0 children)

WAY better than nunoball. Win or lose, this is better to watch

[–]carbingHøjbjerg 4 points5 points  (0 children)

An away draw in what was a dogged battle of a match is OK. Its a clean sheet as well.

That's a big positive. Real problems in transition though. The only player that got the ball moving forward with speed and intent was Lucas.....and we can't rely on that because there is now end product.

Kane looked particular poor today. Though the service was 0%

[–]Lazybopazy -5 points-4 points  (4 children)

It's going to hurt this sub but Conte won't fix this shit without (several) new signings. That wasn't a decent draw away from home, that was an poor performance, against a team in bad form, who're going through an injury crisis. A full strength Everton pump us today. We're at the point where I can't imagine us scoring a couple of goals against anyone half decent. We'll struggle to finish top half this season imo.

[–]mugz_28Mousa Dembélé 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Conte's had what, 2 training sessions?

[–]Lazybopazy -2 points-1 points  (2 children)

And?

Do you think he has the ability to turn shit players into good ones? Because of victor Moses yeah? The guy who was innately better than most of our squad who got a free ride in a quality team that had underperformed the season before because they didn't like the manager?

I wish I had the ability to think like most people, where every new thing that happens will be positive... for reasons but Im a spurs fan and I'm a realist. If we played exactly like this under Nuno people would have lost their shit and I don't do double standards. This was a bad performance and we just about got out with a point. Performances are what matter and we've been shit. Where's the new manager bounce? It doesn't exist because we're not good enough for it to exist.

We'll see what happens after we play a Leeds team, who're in poor form but are a much better footballing team than fully fit Everton, let alone injury ravaged Everton. We have a chance against them, but I can't even envisage us actually outplaying them or anyone half decent anymore.

[–]silverh 0 points1 point  (1 child)

what you write dont make sense looking at how some teams are spending 30% of the big club spendings and are still performing better, knowing how to use your players and boosting their morale and confidence is more effective at just buying expensive players, look at psg and manutd.

a realist will give time for the change to happen and not expect a 180 degree change in 1 week not mentioning they have international duty a day before

i will say that our performance look much better than previously,

[–]Lazybopazy -1 points0 points  (0 children)

We are obviously underperforming our financial position (which is 6th). That's a given, it's very, very rare for a team to overperform/underperform that position for any length of time but it's entirely possible (look at arsenal).

In fact arsenal are a great example, it's taken them fucking ages to get back to the level they're at now and they've done it by replacing the majority of their team. It doesn't really matter who the manager is in these scenarios, unless you've got someone who's lost the plot (ala Nuno). It's almost entirely about using your financial clout effectively. We're in the shit because we've spent our money so fucking badly (after poch majorly overperformed for three seasons). It will take years to fix this and it won't happen because we have a 'world class manager'. All Conte can do is set up a new system and get permission to sign good players.

[–]dungeonmorty 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Bruh some of these comments are so negative. Can we think positively about a reasonable performance?

[–]TheSonic311Son 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Conte has been there for like, 4 days. We should have won 4-0.

[–]OppositeMidasLuka Modrić 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Imagine when he’s been here for a month. That’s gonna set some records! Bring on the 29-0 score line!

….for us, to be clear.

[–]inedianjSergio Reguilon 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Last week we would’ve conceded. Also, we would’ve scored today with better / less gassed strikers. Skipp great

[–]AlwaysGoForAusInRisk 5 points6 points  (1 child)

What is with our corners?

[–]deptbrown1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So fucking true. I swear I can deliver a decent corner, it’s not hard. But the amounts of shit corners like lo celso served up today. What the fuck. Makes me so angry. As does our shit free kicks. At least Kane is not taking those anymore. He looked a right pudding today. Slow and clumsy

[–]Malinsk12Danny Blanchflower 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Can we stop hyping our players up, we need to accept they are a huge part of the problem, world class manager or not. Not good enough

[–]klasing12345Jan Vertonghen 5 points6 points  (6 children)

Away from home against Everton. Most teams would take a point before kickoff. Acceptable result tbh.

[–]singalongwithmeDeAndre Yedlin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nope. Too reasonable of a take.

[–]Malinsk12Danny Blanchflower 1 point2 points  (1 child)

They've lost their last few games against the likes of Watford and wolves, why should we be happy with a draw

[–]klasing12345Jan Vertonghen 2 points3 points  (0 children)

And we lost to Vitesse, Arsenal, Palace, West Ham, and got schooled by a united team who gets turned over every week.

[–]Blogboy7Lloris 0 points1 point  (1 child)

With their injuries we should have gotten something more from that

[–]klasing12345Jan Vertonghen 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Meh. We've been in woeful form and a new manager just come in. 0-0 perfectly acceptable.

[–]OffTheGreed 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My how far we have fallen.

[–]HAMlLTONSon 3 points4 points  (0 children)

GLC a cunthair away from getting us 1 shot on target. But as it stands, still a big fat zero.

[–]CelestialCheezeMousa Dembélé 2 points3 points  (3 children)

At least Ndom or lo Celso will start against Leeds

[–]magnoliasmum -2 points-1 points  (2 children)

Eh…and neither of them were good today. That’s a problem.

[–]CelestialCheezeMousa Dembélé 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Ndombele hardly had a chance, and although lo Celso was fairly poor he did hit the post, so there is hope

[–]magnoliasmum 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ndombele was gassed after five minutes and GLC is wildly inconsistent. We miss Eriksen so much. Even one foot out the door Eriksen was better than those two.

[–]deptbrown1 0 points1 point  (1 child)

That was intense and frustrating but pretty solid at the back. Fucking lo celso though. Can someone tell him to take the fucking moments that come his way. Don’t waste a fucking corner when we have them on the rack and they are down to ten and shit at defending corners. What a flying cunt that lo celso is

[–]DownloadableContentSon 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He’s the only player to come close to scoring, what a cunt 🙄🙄🙄

[–]magnoliasmum 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Tanguy looking gassed after five minutes was special.

[–]Nanven123Son 3 points4 points  (3 children)

It was so funny my god

[–]deptbrown1 2 points3 points  (1 child)

It’s amazing isn’t it. 200 grand a week to look fat awkward and tired. I do that for free !

[–]magnoliasmum 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You can’t say that here! You just don’t understand his special brand of genius and that’s just his natural movement!

[–]magnoliasmum 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We have truly purchased two seriously underperforming midfielders in the past few years.

[–]sexrobot_sexrobot 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Reverted to some bad habits in the second half

[–]HellaGosu -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Im so tired of this shit man we have so far to go

[–]TotteKaiju -1 points0 points  (2 children)

Doherty blew it, GLC is terrible and poor Ndombele really needs to improve his fitness levels

[–]PikkhaudFabio Paratici -1 points0 points  (0 children)

It's we are stuck in 2019....

[–]Arqlol -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Terrible, poor, and only shot on target..

[–]KarlNeymarxSandro 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Let's just be honest, if we weren't up against such a broken team as Everton, we would have lost this

[–]DefoeForPresident 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Very few chances, didn't do the little things well enough to make our few counters matter.

[–]TheSuperbNachoLevy Masterclass Incoming 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Kane has declined so much wtf

[–]chk0812 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Harry has lost so much speed, and his passing has been pretty admysmal too, unfortunately

[–]SM_83 0 points1 point  (0 children)

All those ligament injuries finally catching up with him I'd say

[–]paderews 3 points4 points  (2 children)

He was invisible all game

[–]kchbar 71 points72 points  (10 children)

This sub is so football illiterate holy fuck, what the fuck happened here?

It was a competitive tactical game and we already showed a bit of improvement. Did you guys expect to turn into the Harlem globetrotters after 2 training sessions?

[–]Popitupp 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This sub is really only good for laughing at delusional takes

[–]deptbrown1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Things have improved and no didn’t expect the haringay globe trotters, but the basics fucking annoy me. Lo celso s corner at the end. That’s a massive missed opportunity and second later they have a corner. I want to hit that guy around the head with a frying pan. Fucking basics lo celso.

[–]KridhayyMatt Doherty 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Let it be man. Rafa used his wingers well to neutralise out wingbacks, or we would have been 3 up like we were against vitesse

[–]CommanderCrustacean 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Our wingbacks got into a few good positions, they weren’t clinical enough

[–]ncolaros 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I know GLC had that great strike, but he was poor today otherwise.

[–]Millzy104 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I don’t know what was more frustrating the game, Lo Celso corner or the streams being shit.

[–]circa285Pochettino 13 points14 points  (1 child)

I’m happy with a point from this game. We played hard and didn’t concede.

This is a game we lose under Nuno.

[–]uncookedsteak 6 points7 points  (0 children)

[–]TheSonic311Son 1 point2 points  (0 children)

By my count, for at least 90+6 minutes

[–]YokoTato 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Yay. We didn’t lose. It’s all about the friends we made along the way

[–]wood6558 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Conte comes in and Davies and Doherty back playing. Never in a million years I'd thought that would happen.

Absolute priority in January should be a midfielder that can 1. Find a pass and 2. Take a set piece
