I found the history (if you can call it that) of Mura interesting. What a game for them to be involved in, which (I guess) is the beauty of the Conference League. I never quite grasped that fact until last night.

...and on the subject of last night, I think we all saw just how poor some of our players are. From the starting line up...

Gollini; does not fill me with any confidence whatsoever
Doherty; has now proven, beyond any reasonable doubt, guilty of impersonating a footballer
Rodon; is a player I feel will improve, over time. His composure is up there with the best, but can be a little too self-assured at times.
Romero; not yet convinced, but will reserve judgement
Reguilon; probably the best starter, but was lost with the clowns around him
Alli; has lost his way and needs to find another club, didn't impress me at all last night. He should have been controlling the game.
Skipp; I'm not his biggest fan and I think that Spurs are too big for him, but he done ok against these minnows to be fair
Winks; Spurs has always been to big for him imo and last night cemented that view
Lo Celso; good goal but also useless without decent players around him, but once they came on he was a different player altogether. Definite starter this weekend. Has to be.
Gil; I missed a game a few weeks back where he was being lauded in the press, but I'm yet to see it. Tried hard but no end product.
Scarlett; sorry son, but you're not ready for the first team, not yet anyway.
Report sofaking October 1, 2021 7:16 PM BST
Kind of disappointing that they had to bring on the big guns to finish this pub team off.  Alli was useless as usual and Scarlett is definitely not ready. Pretty bad performance all round after they went 2-0 till Kane, Son and Moura came on to rescue the situation.  Villa will certainly fancy their chances on Sunday.
Report TOP3MAN October 1, 2021 7:39 PM BST
Goalie can't make a judgement or the defence based on that performance against that level of opposition.

Midfield - winks was tidy but literally that constitutes to being able to pass nicely in triangular spaces!! Skipp is lost in there with teammates whom struggle to press.

Dele tried to carry that midfield and attack as the senior player, but he lacks the ability to press and win the ball back that made him so good in Poch team that squeezed up, dele is no longer deployed or in a team that suited what he did well.

Gill has no left foot it seemed to me and looks like he isn't strong to kick the ball strongly enough into the box. I'm not impressed yet even though he may develop.

Scarlett looks Another in a long line of youngsters who looks like he is trying to hard to make a breakthrough, not sure why that keeps happening in comparison to other teams in developing youngsters.

I'm yet to see a younger player come through that has looked like one who can step up since Harry. Concerning for our youth development and I think there needs some much needed investment

Lo celso agreed struggled until matched with players of decent calibre

Still look individuals pushed together

Villa trying to look like Stoke with 6/7 long throws into penalty area were very disappointing considering
they'd beaten Everton and Man U.

Complete sea change as far was we were concerned with the emphasis on picking the right team rather than tactics.
Royal and Romero starting to settle in which was encouraging,we looked back to our selves with some nice football, and
even Reguilon played ok.
Pity the international break will stop the flow.
No Sanchez, Winks or Dele although I fear the latter is a victim of playing out of position.
The team apart from NDombele were great but the latter doesn't look atmo to me to be a PL player.
He wants too much time on the ball and has been sussed by the world and his wife.

Newcastle aren't a team to gauge against. Steve Bruce clearly looked upset before the game had started, he knows his fate and quite frankly must feel pretty worthless that with Money they wouldn't give him a chance, that will be him for the top flight now I think!!

Spurs still managed to make Newcastle look great for 15 Minutes, I mean that was a very slow start and no running again on closing down, the Gap between the defense and forward line was huge!! Those in the middle dropped deep again allowing a lot of room, however then Newcastle kept pushing forward, spurs had so much space as they found a team tactically more inept then themselves. Moura dropped in the 10 role an Ndombele played wide, that seemed to work better and credit Nuno he changed that after 10 minutes. N'Dombele is a player, but still wouldnt be in my side against any of the top 8-9 teams in the league.

It was better but still so much work to do, especially that we should of scored six or seven, but they just dont know how to be clinical and rutherless, City would've scored 5 or 6 today against Newcastle, Chelsea, Liverpool as well. We're 7th or 8th best in this league, next game against the spammers will be a better match to judge

At one point I thought we was going to be the only team to have lost to palace and Newcastle!! two of the bottom six sides
Report jed.davison October 18, 2021 11:02 AM BST
Curiously, despite the fans not liking him, Bruce's stock can only have risen within the game from his time at Newcastle. He hasn't exactly made the proverbial silk purse out of that rabble but he's kept them up when they are essentially useless - last season especially when ASM and CW have missed long stretches of the season. He's kept his counsel throughout, and he's just got on with his job.

I'm still seething about the team he picked at Palace and the way they played, and how they performed at Arsenal, but they've shown a bit more the last couple of games - I feared the worst after a minute yesterday having thought we'd win easily and in the end it was pretty comfortable.

Ndombele I guess will always be one we argue about, but again he's doing a bit more and a bit more often to think that giving him a dozen straight games might be worth some of the frustration.

Eight games in only the Nazis have won more games than us and it looks already like anyone could finish fourth unless OGS goes.

There is no directive or direction that the club is going in. All the hyping is skywalk, tours, NFL and anything else u can get in that lovely stadium.

First carbon match, echo training ground, best facilities.... this was once a football club..  now its an hospitality suite!!

6th in the table not that bad.....oh wait a second!! Apart from City, the wins have been villa at home, Newcastle away (bruce was already gone) and wolves which should've been  6 or 7 nil to them.

Expected goals is the worse since that was formed, touches in the box non existent, chances non existent..... promised attacking football got less attacking!!

Manager stats for wolves pointed to this.  Levy went cheap which is down to the failed Mourinho 0lan which was an amazon documentary appointment!!

Levy wint meet to discuss plans or direction of club. Spurs have too recover the pandemic, but the revenues are there, its just the running cost of the team is an wider margin to its rivals.
