Well, not much to say about that. They take their chances (two one-on-ones with the keeper, and hit the inside of the post in the 5th minute) and stop falling over and gifting Liverpool goals and Rats would have won. They were loose at the back anyway, but still should have won.

yeah they shouldn't have lost, liverpool were pretty useless, but rats looked uncomfortable over long stretches trying to play out the back, and in the end the lack of a striker did matter. they got no swag right now ...

useless was a bit much, liverpool looked containable. still more mature, even if it's only because rats change systems too much so when things get scruffy players don't automatically know what to do.

psg riding on the ole effect.

Well I thought we played well for large stretches on Sunday, including most of the second half. Very unlucky and wasteful with our chances. The basic problem with the Mourinho era is that

On defense he overestimated his ability to solidify the defense around Dier/Sanchez/Toby/Tanganga and bought a player Rodon who he doesnt play. The players arent good enough and they commit too many individual errors.

On offense the players are good enough, but the manager cant organize an attack and is overly reliant on individual talent and brilliance. Their off the ball movement is poor and they move the ball too slowly. They have given up on pressing and any kind of urgency. When they press and have some positive energy the look much better.

If Spurs crash out of Europa, regardless of what happens in the League Cup final, he ought to be sacked before it gets toxic, because if he isnt going to win a trophy or get us into Europe for next year there is no point in him being here, next year will only get worse.

In any case, I do think he will be gone this summer, as I said previously Levy wont fire him before that I dont imagine.

Antoine do you think that was red card worthy?
