Spurs have mastered the art of incredibly slow ball movement
That's AVB's legacy, unfortunately.
I mean, we all obviously agree that if Suarez were on Tottenham and Soldado were on Liverpool that Tottenham would be in the title race and Liverpool would be around Southampton territory.
I think it is. They still fall back into that and the CB's still tend to creep up and play a high line on occasion. I don't think you can erase those tendencies so quickly.
I'd say Julian Green is the most interesting name
I think it is. They still fall back into that and the CB's still tend to creep up and play a high line on occasion. I don't think you can erase those tendencies so quickly. You can see Sherwood screaming at them when the pace slows down so I think he's aware of the problem but it's been baby steps so far. Today was a tough one to judge, though, with Cardiff playing 5 at the back and sitting back most of the game. It was really crowded in the middle and with Walker and Rose on the shelf, Spurs didn't have fullbacks overlapping as they normally would to create some width. Townsend still likes to cut in and narrow things even more though Lennon created some havoc on occasion when he stayed wide and attacked Cardiff's fullback. It wasn't a great performance overall and I thought they turned off after scoring the goal and Cardiff just weren't good enough to punish Spurs for it. Chelsea and Arsenal won't be too worried by the film of this one. Spurs still seem to me to be a team that doesn't know what it is yet.
