Kane DID NOT break Wilshere's leg

7:00 pm

WILSHERE INJURES HIMSELF


Our gutter press once again seems to have invented an easy story that Sevilla are interested in signing Mauricio Pochettino as their new manager if current incumbent Jorge Sampaoli is offered and leaves for the Argentina post.

The Mirror though offer no evidence of this at all, not one Spanish source and of course the Daily Mirror have the inside track on what the bosses of Sevilla are thinking don't they!

Harry Kane DID NOT break Jack Wilshire's leg and for the Daily Star to suggest he did is scandalous. Jack Wilshere came hurtling at Kane and twisted his ankle on the ground. You could clearly see his foot bend under him NOT in contact with Kane.

A 2nd scan reveals Jack Wilshere fractured his left fibula, similar to the problem which hampered him last season.
 The specimen who wrote the article has sunk to a new low and demonstrates he is a fully paid-up member of gutter journalism.

Pass completion stats are impressive and BBC MOTD video link

SPURS 5 BOURNEMOUTH 0


We played 655 passes to 298 from Bournemouth. Our success rate was 89% compared with their 74%. We played 19 key passes to their 5.

Spurs Pass Completion Stats
Mousa Dembele 98.5% from 77 touches
Kyle Walker 96% from 69 touches
Hugo Lloris 93.3% from 33 touches
Jan Vertonghen 93% from 111 touches
Eric Dier 90.8% from 82 touches
Son Heung-min 90% from 73 touches
Harry Kane 88.2% from 38 touches
Ben Davies 87.7% from 77 touches
Dele Alli 84.8% from 61 touches
Toby Alderweireld 84.6% from 87 touches
Christian Eriksen 76.8% from 96 touches
Victor Wanyama 71.4% from 18 touches

While our passing stats are impressive, our finishing in the early part of the season was not clinical enough. Now we are regularly banging in three or four goals. While that is an improvement there is still room to improve again, We missed quite a few one-on-one chances, Kane missed a couple and although offside Son Heung-min totally missed the target. We see Dele Alli miss them and it is these little things that will make us even harder to beat.

The Fantastic Four
KANE: 25 goals and 5 assists
ALLI: 19 goals and 11 assists 
SON: 19 goals and 8 assists 
ERIKSEN: 11 goals and 18 assists

The role of the defensive midfielder is not just to defend the back four, his role is often to switch play as quickly as possible, Dier's recycling of the ball quickly was first class and we know when he has time on the ball he can pick a pass too.

Mousa Dembele seemed to be everywhere on the pitch and Harry Kane was showing some lovely touches to link the play well at the front, one of those flicks creating the goal for Son Heung-min.

Tottenham are a joy to watch, even opposition fans are saying so.

The bastard thing about Spurs doing so well is that when you wake up late you miss them on cos they've been on 1st, or even 2nd!!! 😂😂😂

SPURS 4 BOURNEMOUTH 0


Spurs go marching on. A 4-0 win means we are unbeaten in the last 16 home games which includes 12 home Premier League wins in a row. We are now 17 points ahead of Arsenal. We can do no more than win to keep any sort of pressure on Chelsea.

  • White Hart Lane record W15 D2 GS 43 GA 8 PTS 47. The boys are really giving the old stadium a good send off.
Their game against a fired up Jose Mourinho's Manchester United is a big game for us, possibly the last chance to maintain any worthwhile pressure. We need a United victory to keep the gap to 4 points, then if Chelsea take a look over their shoulder there is a chance they may slip up.

There is a chance other teams will want us to win this year and put in a greater effort. Nobody gave Crystal Palace a chance so you never know what might happen.

  • Spurs have now scored 22 home league goals and counting in 2017. Everton have the most 26 (only Barca have more in Europe's top 5 leagues).
Kane missed 410 minutes with his injury. During that time the team scored 17 goals.We didn't lose a game and we didn't lose a game in the earlier spell he missed either. Son Heung-min kept up his scoring and Dele Alli chipped in with an assist.
  • Kane netted his 20th Premier League goal of the season to put Spurs 3-0 ahead after 48 mins. He joins three other players who have scored 20 or more goals in 3 consecutive Premier League seasons:

⚽️Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur)
⚽️Alan Shearer (Blackburn Rovers)
⚽️Thierry Henry (Arsenal)
⚽️Ruud van Nistelrooy (Manchester United)


Seven straight wins in a row, the side can do no ore. COYS

Twitter impressed, Spurs pressing game to hot to handle

SPURS 4 BOURNEMOUTH 0


The icing on the cake today as Vincent Janssen scores at the second attempt, with the first blocked as it was heading wide, to notch a Premier League goal, his other one being from the penalty spot.

Our pressing game was fantastic today. If you watch a replay of the game, forget the game itself for 5 minutes and just watch each player press. When the ball was passed to a Bournemouth player a Spurs man was immediately rushing to them. They had no time on the ball and no tile to make decisions. The Bournemouth players had to give the problem to someone else and with no time the mistakes occurred.

In the first-half we were passing the ball around and they were running and running. When they had the ball Pochettino was urging the players to press from the sidelines, you could hear him shouting now, now.

As Thierry Henry pointed out after the game, it is organised pressing, it is pressing at certain times with a distinct objective. Everyone has a role to play in cutting out passing angles and aggressively closing down opponents. When he had to do it at Barcelona he started to enjoy it, just as I'm sure the Tottenham players are enjoying it.

It takes tremendous fitness and a lot of training, it isn't something you can pick up in a couple of weeks after you have joined us and you have to totally 100% buy into it, Jamie Redknapp was right to point that out.

This is the team working like fury when we don't have the ball. People used to say you have to earn the right to play, which basically meant you had to control the middle of the park, now you control the whole pitch, not just the middle.

Replying to 
Look forward to seeing the disorganised XI we line up with which is out battled and easily dispossessed by Spurs pressing

Spurs pressing game is insane.


Spurs pressing Bournemouth off the park. I guess it helps when Kane is your striker and not a lazy fuck like Ibra

VIDEO: Harry Kane individual performance

11:24 pm
Harry Kane will have eased the worries of many a Spurs fan with his hat-trick against Bournemouth on Sunday. Mauricio Pochettino sees the positive side of the difficult period Kane has been going through.
"We never had any doubts about him. It was a very important hat-trick for him, it's important for him to learn about that period, the good and the bad about football. 
"I'm happy because he has become a much better player. This period was very tough for him."
The video below shows his individual performance.

The average goal statistics tell us Bournemouth score more goals in the first half of their home games and Tottenham score more goals in the second half of our away games, also that Bournemouth concedes more in the second half of their home games while we concede less.

These statistics confirm that the likelihood is that there will be no more than 1 goal scored in the first half with the Bournemouth statistically more likely to score and no more than 1 goal scored in the second half with Tottenham statistically more likely to score.

When does each side score its goals during the game?

61-75 Minutes: 2/0 - 1/0
76-90 Minutes: 4/3 - 1/1

Tottenham have not been winning a game at half time away from home yet in the Premier League and Bournemouth have been winning 50%. Tottenham have not lost a second half away from home yet, we have won 50%, drawn 50%. Bournemouth have not won a second half, drawing 50% and losing 50%.

From a statistical viewpoint the game is clear, our danger time is the first 30 minutes Bournemouth are strong offensively and we are strong defensively, this may well go a long way to determining the result given Bournemouth have not yet won a second half. 

Bournemouth have a tendency to concede between 16 to 30 minutes so if we are going to score in the first half this is the optimum time. We are more likely to score a goal in the last half an hour of the game and Bournemouth concede during that period so we need to remain strong in that 16-30 minute period which would then set us up for a late strike in the last half an hour.
