    1st ….. Dam …. 3rd

  • Luke says:

    The JD question Is a bit black and white, TBF he had poor service, I think we had more chance with him and ade on the pitch but the way the question is posed then of course one thinks it was the right thing to do.

    • Harry Hotspur says:

      In fairness mate I’m struggling to see a third option.

      He stayed on or went off :blush:

      • Hartley says:

        He went off because he was off, if he had been on then he would have stayed on….. :hae:

      • Habib says:

        We could have put Bale as left back, Defoe as left winger and Vertonghen as defensive midfielder with Siggurdson as the deep lying playmaker.

        But this sh*t sounds good on the net – In practice it probably woulda been a disaster :p

        • Astro Spur says:

          We could play Loris as the big man up front, get him into the team ye know!!!!

        • Jamie says:

          I think so. 4-4-2 with Sigurdsson coming off the left flank and Bale overlapping might have been more like it.
          But you’re still talking un fit Hudd and Livermore being over run in midfield.

        • Kosta14 says:

          The changes I would have liked to see wouldve been to take off thudd bring in naughton at left back and drop vertonghen in def mid take off Dempsey for adebayor. Defoe would’ve worked better with ades hold up play allowing him to feed off his layoffs which is his strength – control and shoot. At that stage of the game we needed that sort of approach. Vertonghen would’ve provided cover, hard tackling and drive, he’s just that good!

        • Matt says:

          Kosta – Sounds a great idea. But do you remember what happened mid week, when we brought Vert on for Carroll? In theory it should have made us much stronger, but we fell apart. if he had done that everyone would be saying “why didn’t AVB learn?”

      • Luke says:

        Fair do’s mate. Thought it was a good survey all in all And my Andrews were in line with most rational yids which is good. I think the first question is all important. I think people need to recognise that 5th would not be a step back. I’ve got great belief in this squad. Just need to get some players back. Coys

      • bdgreenway says:

        never even saw the poll hh ,cant blame defo for no service .Am i happy with the way we are playing, NO. No depth mabe is our problem. have we replaced modshit an van de man . NO.

      • Bobbles says:

        The phrasing was leading though wasn’t it?

  • The man from room five says:

    We were shown up by good tactics- nullifying midfield, ensuring no service to JD or ADE. We had no answer…what was the question?
