I'm not sure I agree with some of the comments about Jack I thought he looked absolute quality today and any idiots out there that can say he's a diver or not good enough for mid table teams like Man U,Arsenal or Spuds needs their head examining

What an absolute sickener. Could have won, should have drawn...but lost in the last minute.

The writing was on the wall for the last 10 minutes or so as we sat deeper and deeper, and lost complete control of the game as we chased shadows. Weíve seen this story so many times, that it was inevitable.

He was our best player by a distance, as he generally is every game.

Jack looked really isolated on the left today. His decision making was mostly off today.

Thatís what good teams/managers do. They find a way to isolate him on the left. Lesser teams allow him to cut in and play a more centre left role. Heís so much less a player when heís pushed out wide.

For Legion et al - Engels' painful error. https://streamable.com/vc2z3

Oh dear.

8 straight defeats when we've started or brought on Engels with 21 goals conceded as well.

The guy is a donkey, good player my ****.

Let's not make it a ninth next week.

Iím as absolutely gutted as anyone on here, my 9 year old said to me as we were walking back to the train, ĎI think weíre going down down dadí. He may be right, or it might just feel like that because of the way we lost.

However, in my opinion that is as well as weíve played all season. We made spurs look very ordinary for most of the game. We lost because of one debatable decision by VAR and one horrendous mistake, by Engels, who otherwise played well. In fact literally a second before the mistake I nearly turned round to my son to say we hadnít missed Mings.

In 2016, we lose that game 3-0 and donít compete. Other than Drinkwater, who still looked off the pace to me, every one of those players put in a shift today. Everyoneís entitled to their opinion, my opinion is some of the criticism on here is OTT. Relegation is not nailed on and I donít actually think weíre shit. Iíve sat there today and watched us outplay the champions league finalists for large part of the game. Yes we still lost, but we play that way in every other game this season and for me we donít go down. And Samatta looks an absolute player.

DS: "Itís a huge amount, yeah. People keep talking about we canít beat the top teams. Itís not rocket science. You play the teams in & around you, theyíre the type of games youíre meant to win & compete in

Found this comment appalling from Smith if he thinks just beating those teams around us is enough then he is deluded.One of the trademarks of teams that stay up after a relegation fight is the ability to get points from teams near the top when they are not supposed too

I thought Spurs were s*** for the first half hour. Everytime we attacked their CBs were at panic station and just booting it out for throw ins and corners. Looked exactly like a team with two away wins at kick off.

Ultimately we lost it with those missed chances at 1-0. It never changes against the top teams that you need to be ultra clinical on top. Spurs went into half time winning with 35%. In a funny way they remind me a bit of us under MON. Not much pace in central midfield but ping balls over the top and likes of Moura and Son will cause chaos.

We were also unlucky a player who hadn't scored since May 2017 rifled one in from a corner like Harry Kane. That really deflated us.

Second half I agree it was a case of hanging onto the 2-2 and Spurs were more likely to score given some of the chances.

Only we could concede a goal 20 seconds after having a goal kick in 93rd minute though. Calamitous way to lose a game.

I just saw that and tried to copy and paste it, what an absolutely terrible mentality that is.

Truth be told, Spurs couldíve had 5 or 6 today. We gave them a lot today but Reina was up for it.

I didnít expect to win, Iím glad we competed but Iím a little ashamed of the way we have crumbled against the other big clubs this season.

Abysmal. No wonder our record against said "top teams" has been so pathetic this season.
