And where are the subs? Where is the attempt to at least try to change it and get a goal back ?

I’m starting to wonder if Conte really is the man for the job here

So Skipp gets eight fucking minutes for a completely ineffective Bissouma

Pochettino was sacked for no good reason and Levy should be on the fucking phone to him before the final whistle.

United have had 28 shots for fucks sake. It’s completely unacceptable.

Hah, it's even worse. I checked the app to see if they'd scored again and it had mistakenly credited Skipp with coming on with 8 minutes to go.

Better still, he comes on with one minute to fucking go.

Conte can go. Our overall results this season are fraudulent.

I think it's going to have to get much worse for him to go. We know Levy likes shiny toys and he's utterly incapable of seeing the writing on the wall.

The only time he's ever shown actual balls is when he realised he'd fucked up appointing Nuno.

We always lose at United. It was the manner of this defeat that was so damaging. We look like a club with no ambition. We made United look great because we are so easy to play against. We don't make it difficult for our opponents because we don't pose a threat.

That was pony. We were really lucky not to lose 10-0, Hugo made many incredible saves and prevented a massacre. Having said that he still can't kick or think quickly enough to take advantage of situations and I'd prefer a lesser shot stopper with good feet and brains. When you are constantly passing back to the keeper, over and over and over, then that keeper needs to be sharp. It was so fucking depressing watching that pathetic show of back and square passing, constant loss of possession, crap passing with the occasional long ball up to no-fucking-body. Conte=Mourinho=AVB

I've been busy recently and haven't taken the time to comment here on matches for a few weeks, but I've seen at least a good chunk of all games and the events at Old Trafford mirror much of what has happened in all the other games.

I find it hard to point the finger of blame towards any of the players (except Emerson, but he's not really a football player, is he?) because they are are all at least quite good, and trying very hard to do exactly what they are being instructed to do. It it the constant instruction that is the problem.

If a midfielder receives the ball in the center circle and wants to go forward, he won't, because he's not allowed to. Antonio is yelling at him to pass it to a CB in order to drag the opposition out. The CB must then pass it to the wingback to either carry forward or pass it straight back to the CB. In Antonio's mind, eventually a golden opportunity will present itself to either one of our lightning fast wingbacks or one of our pinpoint-passing CB's to get it to Harry or Sonny who will definitely score. It is not in the plan for a midfielder to pass it to Harry or Sonny - that would be WRONG!

Because everyone already knows that's what we are going to do (doesn't matter if it's 3-4-3 of 3-5-2),they pressure us into playing tiki-taka around our own box, until eventually we give it to someone already under pressure who is forced to lump it upfield. Occasionally the lumped ball will land on Harry, and he'll score, what a brilliant plan we've hatched. but most of the time, it will be too far from Harry or go to Sonny and bounce 5 yards off his shin.

Conte's post-match interview consisted of him saying "We must be better in these moments", and of course he is right. Let's start with you, Antonio, shut up and let them play, or get a better plan. They are grown men and pretty good at football, all you need to do is to encourage them to do what they are good at, not try to turn Hugo into Luca Modric or Sonny into Joe Jordan. Be a coach/manager, not a kid trying to control all the buttons on his game controller.

Can't wait until Deki's back - he seems to be the only one who says "bollocks to your rules, Antonio". So he'll probably be sold in January.

Deki is the only Spurs player I’d pay to watch at the moment.

Conte saying he wanted the players to “waste more time” against United by kicking the ball out of the stadium or staying down longer if injured.

If this is what Conte is all about then I am not interested. He should actually be sanctioned for such comments because they are not in the best interests of the game.

The fans own the sport and I know of nobody who wants to see players pretending to be hurt to milk the clock. Conte’s position on this is deplorable.

It’s one of those things that everyone does, but you don’t come out and say it. Think it’s just that it exemplifies the overall negativity of the team under Conte.

Cunte wants his Tottenham players to use the dark arts to manage periods of suffering during matches.

Fuck off with that bollocks, I want our players to concentrate on the art of playing beautiful, attacking football. I've had it with him now. I agree with his "poor decision-making in possession, loose passes and “stupid” turnovers" comment because that sums up how we have been playing for several seasons and as far as I can see he's done fuck all to fix that. I can't see how we could play more negatively than we are at the moment, but it seems that's what Cunte wants.

I know people are going to be saying we're 3rd in the PL and will possibly top our CL group and Levy is a financial wizard and Lady Gaga, NFL and big, long, huge bar etc. but I'm bored stiff with this dull, predictable, defensive bullshit and I want to be able to enjoy watching us play again like I did in the olden days.
