    Just threw 3 points away. Can our strikers have some ********ing finishing training? Laca misses an open goal, and then Auba with a penalty an U10s wouldn't even do. Weak. As. Piss.

    Terrible pk. Auba needs to be better. So poor. Now we are ready to choke this away.

    Auba is just not playing with the confidence he had 2 months ago. Sad.

    Not sure what ********s me off the most. Spurs get an offside penalty. Mustafi does a ********ing Mustafi and fouls when the balls going wide.

    And we get gifted an even up, and we completely butcher the penalty.

    HOW ARE THESE GUYS PAID SO MUCH AND CAN'T TAKE A ********ING PEN?

    Honestly, the sooner guys like Xhaka and Mustafi are ********ing gone, the sooner our club will stop being referred to as "BANTER ERA"

    UGH. Free kick in the final minute. We play it short. And we show our cards. We're playing for a draw. Stupid.

    THEN Torreira gets a straight RED for high tackle.

    Ay yay yay

    Penalty kicks stagger me. In U9s we got taught low and hard to a corner, or high and hard to a corner.

    And guys who are paid more a week then I can get in a year still continue to shit the bed with penalties. Such weak techniques.

    Waste of a chance to be a point behind. Waste of a chance to really push Tottenham down the shit. And we lose Torreira for 3 matches.


    Side note, VAR, hurry the ******** up so we can stop being on the receiving end of this bullshit.

    A draw if very fair. We didn’t take advantage of our chances to put it away. Upset we didn’t take all 3 but no one to blame but ourselves.

    Mustafi, Laca and Auba need to be better.

    Miki was great. MOTM for me.

    Mustafi needs to go. He adds nothing and is consistently a liability.

    If that was a red rose was too far more so. Sadly Auba should have put that away

    Getting 1 point away to Spurs... I guess I'll take it. Tough stuff to watch though. We could've pretty easily taken 3 points today

    But getting 4 points out of 6 from Spurs this season... I'll definitely take that.

    Onward to Rennes. Then United. That match will probably define the end of our season.

    Not happy with the result but thrilled with the overall performance. As a team that was a display worthy of a win, worthy of Top 4, etc.

    Leno and Sokratis shared MOTM for me. Mikhi right there as well.

    Pretty shit second half. I don't know why Mustafi ever gets near the team, he actively hurts the team. Both strikers were terrible,before Auba even took the PK I told my wife he was going to miss. Lazy run up...lazy shot. refereeing was terrible. Leno was fantastic

    Every time we play Mustafi 2 things happen.

    1. He handicaps us big time.
    2. He always has this facial expression that is part deer in headlights and part person shitting themselves when they have been caught stealing something.

    It was recklessly high. In today's game that's a red.

    Decent amount of positives from the game but playing mustafi in any defensive line is catastrophic... aside from his defensive ******** ups - he is just horrid on offense
    Deeply miss bellerin on wing

    Yup and you could add Kos to that mix. And Ramsey gets a shout out.

    IOW, great team performance today. Only one glaring weak link... need I mention names?

    I noticed encroachment on Auba's PK. But I didn't notice that it was the guy who ended up challenging him on the rebound. So the PK should REALLY have been retaken.

    So so many things that VAR would have caught in this match. Ah... next year.

    We didn’t draw this game because of the officiating. Auba’s PK was soft, imo. Xhaka deserved at least a yellow for that early foul on Kane.If Torreira saw straight red, then perhaps Xhaka and definitely Rose were likely straight reds.

    FWIW, right after Rose got the yellow for studs up to Leno’s chest, he moved to a holding midfielder and imo was their most creative player going forward.

    Emery had the right tactics, and the team executed them almost perfectly. A stupid shove by Mustafi and poor finishing from both of our world class strikers are ultimately why we lost 2 points today.

    Totally missed that. More salt on my wound.

    My Spuds friends are happy with the result. I’m even more pissed now.
