A former striker & defender give their Spurs verdict

2:30 pm
Fans see one thing but what do former players see? Two former players tweeted during the Tottenham Hotspur vs Nottingham Forest League Cup tie at White Hart Lane last night, were they conned into thinking it was a good performance by three late goals?

One a striker who formed a great partnership with Garth Crooks, the other a defender seeing the game from a different perspective perhaps.

He was a great goalscorer who joined us from Aberdeen and was the top scorer in the old League One. He went on to play for Barcelona and help them win their first La Liga title for 11 years.

He scored 77 goals in 189 appearances for Tottenham, won the Scottish Premier Division in 1979/80, the FA Cup with us in 1981 and 1982 plus the UEFA Cup in 1984.

What did Steve Archibald think of the game, was he as impressed as some of our fans seem to have been with.

The Attackers View

Would not like to b Soldado absolutely no one looking to give him any kind of decent early service , he seems to b a last option

Spurs not convincing at the back and all of the midfield are playing 1 or 2 touch football , heads down with no thought 2 the striker so far

Maybe now the pace has slowed a bit we might get a bit more thoughtfull and better football

Poor spurs team, to win games u got to score goals, got to give more thought to early balls to striker , and striker hss to demand more

Forrest giving a good account so far

Spurs no real quality in midfield, no one taking resposibility and trying to create, just passes no one with head up looking to play a pass

Boring, with poor quality pretty much all over , no imagination , dissapointed, expecting much more second half, please !

Its a lottery for spurs tonight at this rate, no cohisive movement between mid and front, its like they are playing with no tstriker

Lets see what happens this half,

At last, fantastic strike from Mason !

Nice goalscores goal, will give him confidence !

Nice finish Harry Kane !

Out of jail tonight, got to play your best players and take nothing for granted

The Defenders View

And what about the view for the other end of the field, the game seen through a defenders eyes. Former centre-back Chris Perry's joined us in July 1999 for a club record £4 million, his verdict?

Well Spurs were absolutely average in the 1st half. Forest closest to scoring, Spurs lacked any pace to their play.

Well Spurs made hard work of it, but progress to next round. Fringe players failed to impress. Stambouli, Fazio need time, Paulinho poor.

Two formers players and neither impressed with what they saw. Thanks goodness we had some home-grown youth to save the day, amazing what a bit of desire can do, why weren't the other players keen to impress?

This was an opportunity for the fringe players to show they are worth a start, you have to feel sorry for someone like Jan Vertonghen having to watch to inferior players play in the Premier League ahead of him.
