    Safe to say we’ve played far better football than Spurs so far this year. Where’s the criticism of Poch?

    Yeah lets forget about how Poch has transformed Spurs since he's been there and judge him based off a few games :D

    Spurs’ end to the season in the league was just as bad as ours under Ole. Why wasn’t that highlighted?

    because it's completely different circumstances. He's done so much as a manager he can afford more poor performances with less critisicm. It's a bit like Lampard even if Chelsea play like **** because he's a club legend he can get away with more compared to people with no affiliation to the club

    They literally could've bottled top 4 if it wasn't for everyone else being just as bad. We're all as bad as each other. Spurs are no better and they certainly aren't guaranteed 3rd place like people seem to think. They've got pretty much their best team available today other than NDombele and look so ****. Genuinely look worse every time I watch them. They were better a few seasons ago when they had a worse squad.

    Poch is an absolute fraud that will never win anything

    Agreed on Spurs.

    I actually picked Arsenal and United to pip them for top 4 this season

    Spurs is comfortably playing the worst out of the top 6 atm. Should've lost 5-0 to City last week and only just scraped past Villa. If they keep playing the way they are, Chelsea will finish above them

    The Spurs fans cheers as Eriksen came on says it all, Poch needs to accept he's wrong & although Eriksen doesn't want to stay, he's still the best creative player they have. He changes the game when he comes on.

    And Ole isn’t a club legend? Perhaps not to the same extent, but still :lol:

    Exactly. It’s like Ole not playing Pogba.

    @El_Nino Mike was on about RF, but Kellnerr took his quote and edited it so that GD was the forum in question.

    In this case @Mike nah I don’t think this section is too bad, just baiting and people biting too much.

    United with 3 penalties awarded after 3 matches. No other club with more than 1, and with plenty of suspect VAR decisions.

    Should’ve had more than 1 yesterday tbh

    Watch the replays and tell me which of our pens shouldn’t have been? All earned by our play.

    If we’re going off of how the teams have looked for 270 mins, then Arsenal and United are the best of a rotten bunch.

    Not necessarily saying any of United’s penalties shouldn’t have been called. But there have definitely been other legitimate penalty shouts for other clubs that haven’t been as lucky with the ref’s/VAR’s decision.

    if only players would stop fouling us in the box to make it seem like the refs don't favour us

    Problem there is VAR clearly isn't working with the pens yesterday/today that should've been given that weren't & we can't help that refs arn't giving pens to other clubs as much as us, it's just one of those things.

    I think the only penalty that VAR has truly messed up so far is the one City didn’t get today. Everything else being discussed had too many uncertainties about them.

    League table by expected points.

    3rd best xG
    Best xGA

    The performances have been enough to get the points. Just a bit unlucky so far. It'll turn!
