Wow that Chelsea vs spurs game has to be one of the craziest I've ever seen. Least it's not a dull old 0-0. Could easily be 9 v 9 and 2-2. Mental.

I missed the game but been reading about it. Must have been good to watch except VAR. I see they have picked up injuries too and some suspensions. Good time for international break for them.

Weird league and no team is safe from a disaster day whether its injuries or Var debacle or players lack of IQ. Saw a image of how high they were playing with 9 men. Interesting I have to say.

Against a half decent team, I dare even say against Man Utd, with 9 men playing that high, Spurs would have a conceded a lot more. Chelsea were struggling until the last 10 mins when the Spurs backline were completely exhausted.

Good on Spurs and what a breath of fresh air there manager is, don’t change the principles just play attacking seat of your pants football great to watch for the fans and armchair neutrals.

Good on Ya Mate, some say foolish, some say stupid, I say that’s what entertainment is all about!

He just won many admirers with that, long May it continue.

Let's see how many admirers he has if they start dropping points for fun and they tank now that they have selection issues. Same Muppets who are praising him will go in on him for not adapting.

Entertainment is at WWE. Madness is what he did when down to 9. Chelsea made a meal out of it but eventually got there. other teams would have put a basketball score on them.

IF eth did what he did god help the man and the backlash.

When Liverpool went down to 9 at nc they parked 9 behind the ball and looked to see it out and if the opportunity was there to get there on the counter. it actually worked funny enough.

Wolves away next game and their setup not a good game for them imo.

Big fan of Ange here, but can't say that playing that way two men down when a draw was well within grasp at that point was a great plan. Any other manager would have shut up shop long before and maybe held on for a point. In the end they've been spanked at home through poor game management.

07 Nov 2023 12:41:44
It was not madness, it was a very good attempt to get something out of the game. The keeper was sweeping high and they were well in the game for a long time.

The young left back who got a yellow could have easily been sent off for first half tackle. VAR was taking forever throughout the game - 12 mins of added time first half and 9 in second! I think it was VAR that was tired, not Spurs.

07 Nov 2023 12:48:38
I don’t agree with the previous point. Ange has a style of play and he stuck to it. It was a bold approach. Ultimately it was not successful but we have defended with eleven players and still lost out. And I would love to know what our style of play is.

Ahmed, so you’re saying Football should not be entertaining for the neutral? You should go to WWE if you want to be entertained
You would rather watch dour games, see teams park the bus play slow unattractive football, then watch a game like last night as a neutral, I really don’t understand that to me that must just be jealousy speaking.

We would never know, but we would probably struggle against them last night even down to 9 men with the pace of our play plus they will probably finish above us in the league this season anyway but that’s not what I am saying, it’s not all about united, I said fair play to him for keeping to principles of how he wants to play yes you won’t win league like it, but they don’t anyway for me as a neutral watching that game it’s great to watch, I pay my money to be entertained and I certainly was for 120 mins
if WWE turns you on then great for you.
But to me your post smacks of jealousy.
The game had nothing to do with United or ETH so to get all defensive is rather childish.

07 Nov 2023 13:10:13
Well, if he buys fans and his players even more with this approach, I'd argue it is better to lose that one point, in order to maximise performances later on.

07 Nov 2023 13:24:49
Ahmad are you ok? I don’t understand how you can’t say that wasn’t an entertaining game. It was like 90’s premier league meets var. This is what football was like before it became a non contact sport.

And unless you’re 12, wwe isn’t entertainment.

07 Nov 2023 14:41:10
I was an entertaining game because of the sending offs and var messing but it was not a game of high quality offensive or defensive football.
I'd rather watch a high quality 1nil or nil all and appreciate the good football. But that's a very individual preference.

07 Nov 2023 15:38:55
Ahmad started by saying he didn't watch the game, so his comments are based on a picture or reading a match report. Those who watched it could see the plan, and it wasn't that far off working. They were screwed by the red cards, not by the tactics after the red cards.

07 Nov 2023 15:48:36
It wasn’t at all Ken, it was because 2 teams went at it, even when Spurs went down players they still tried to win. If you watched it all and not the highlights you would see that.

07 Nov 2023 23:08:26
I was not talking about whether it was an entertaining game but about lunacy of being 2 men down and playing that high up the pitch. I watched the highlights. Each to his own. I would not be entertained if we did that. There was that colombian keeper many years ago who did all kinds of crazy stuff, can’t recall his name. Entertaining i am sure for some because it was borderline madness but would not want him in my team.

Hope ange does it against us if they are down to 9. I would be highly entertained and would improve our goal difference:)

08 Nov 2023 08:25:13
What makes you think we could score against them we got a front line that’s got 1 goal between them in what 10 games against lowly teams, so I think you’re jumping the gun there Ahmed.
It was not one man playing this way like your suggesting it was the team and instructions from the manager, I bet if you even ask the players they prefer playing this style of football then slow slow slow defensive football back and forth going nowhere…
More people then not were buzzing after watching that game then not, that’s for sure crazy or not it’s entertainment. And good on him for sticking to his principles I say.

08 Nov 2023 09:20:33
Hoiland, Rashford, Garnacho and Bruno would hammer them if spurs set up with 9 men that way. Actually most teams in the league would do that.

You might call it sticking to his principles I think its gifting 3 points. Watched klop deal with the same issue vs Newcastle who are far more physical and combative earlier this year and you can't help but rate the guy in terms of how he managed it. Ask liverpool fans if they cared one bit sitting in a low block and defending and winning or going gung ho and gifting 3 points.

Reminds me of Tin Cup, its fun watching the movie and a laugh if someone else doing but would never do it myself.

Not looking for an argument just agree to disagree.

08 Nov 2023 13:13:39
You mean that game where Liverpool were down to 10 men and Nunez got 2 goals after being 1 nil down to win 2-1 at Newcastle Ahmad?
