    Spurs 5 (FIVE) - Leicester 4 (FOUR)

    They attack when they're motivated which over the 2nd half of the season has been defined by the opponent. Look at all the crap performances against teams they should beat. Whoever is in charge of the squad needs to figure out a way to get more focus week to week (good luck with that) but the back line depth is terrible. I think Ndidi makes up for some of what's lacking but not all.

    That's obviously his mindset...

    And Claude was talking about wanting to re-sign Morgan....

    Why do you take out a guy who has a chance to equalize?

    However many goals LCFC scores, Spurs will get one more it seems. In defense of Claude the center of the MF can't move and the RB is young and isn't a RB and you're playing against Kane so....

    Certainly looked it and Fuch's own goal was unfortunate. I think Simpson couldn't move at the start of that given that he was subbed off right after.

    If you just attack this team it folds. Usually they show a bit more resistance than this but eventually they break down. Today however is a joke.

    Where do we go from here?

    Agree with this. Instead of blowing ridiculous amounts of money on players from outside England who can't adjust to the Premier League, identify some guys in the Championship who can add quality depth to the roster and overpay to get them - with an accent on grit because this team is starting to lack it. And totally agree - stay away from PL has-beens and cast offs hoping your manager and squeeze something out of them. They're cast-offs for a reason and . you'll get a better return on your money - assuming you have decent scouting. You've got a financial advantage so use it where you're only competing against lower tier PL clubs and not the big clubs. You won't find stars but it may enable you to weed out the crap on the roster and replace it with guys who are at least going to go out and compete when called upon.
  11. With Mahrez yes he has periods where he's disinterested and does nothing - but he's also someone who creates that moment of magic that wins matches. Despite all that's happened since the Man City debacle - Mahrez (along with Vardy) is the reason this club isn't fighting to stay in the league. Regardless of what they sell him for they're not going to replace the positives he brings. They just won't be as good an attacking team -especially vs the good clubs.
  12. In trying to get the club to change to his style, Claude is putting a round peg in a square hole. Couple that with this squad's tendency to play like crap when they're comfortable and you have a major problem. They're going up against teams that are playing hard - many trying to stay in the league - while LCFC is just biding time till the end of the season. Claude could play people based on merit - only problem is most the the young players he's plugged in have done little to nothing. Backline and some of mid field lack grit - and they still can't find anyone to pair with Vardy. I think the answer may be to overhaul the club but I'm not sure whether Claude is the one to do it. I think ownership has to come out this week and either say Claude's staying - or fire him and figure out a long term solution. Personally, if I can get Dyche, Benitez or even Wenger - I make the change. Otherwise you say Claude's here for the long haul - we'll sell players who won't or can't buy in - and give him a real chance. Problem with keeping Claude is the supporters have turned on him. And they have to create some optimism for next season - as I said in one of my posts yesterday, Claude may very well have coached himself out of a job.

    I just don't see it with him. He's done nothing for most of this season.
