    Where do i start? I could go through most of our team but let's pick a player, Lennon - Lightning quick, but he never takes on the full back. As a full back simply face up to him and he turns away and plays the ball side ways. Yet you got a player like walcott who can cause all sorts of problems by running at full backs! Can't we get someone to sit Lennon down and show him videos of players beating / taking on full backs then get him to do it on the training ground? It's bad enough that he isn't being taught how to cross a ball, he now won't take on sub standard full backs. What's the point of having all that pace and not using it at every opportunity? :mad:

    i agree , no one can cross (apart from campbell so obviously we dont play him) the set pieces are shocking , where does jenas get the idea hes the new ronaldo grabbing the ball at every free kick then wasting it everytime . We bought bentley for his crossing and he cant beat the first defender, im really starting to think ramos wants out and the players know it and have given up,oh well he soon get his wish, just hope commoli is on the same bike

    Aaron Lennon - daisy cutter! Bentley seems to want to cross the ball at first opportunity no matter where it goes, I know what you mean by not wanting to beat a man, same could have been said for David Beckham but at least he worked every minute. Apparently AC milan are after him, why not buy him, give him the chance to come back to England, Im sure he has a year or two left in the tank...guaranteed at least 7-8 goals a season!

    you can tell people what to write and what not to on the forum cuz you're a mod, but you can't tell them what they're writting is wrong! alright! you don't moderate ME!
    if i start a thread i'm responsible for it, and i need to know that before i start it cuz people post on the topic. and i was doing just that. i broke no rules. no one is immune to criticism.

    He is entirely right though, what is the point in having a discussion if you can't debate what is written?

    Ok he could have done it in a better way, but to threaten him with "infractions" is ridiculous.

    Just cause Spurs are doing ****, doesn't mean this forum has to go that way as well.

    If that is a discussion, then I'm a hobbit.

    As I don't have pointy ears, hair on my feet and I'm way taller than 4 feet, I guess that is not an example of discussion.

    Yup! I agree that Hassan could be more positive in his views, but I don't think he should be restricted in expressing them....Just because we support a club that is based under the control of Harin*** Council, surely doesn't mean that we have to follow their politically correct fascist ideology.

    Lennon is at his best when coming on as sub...so hopefully HR will not start him until he knows how to dribble past opponents and improve on his crossing but he is still a vital part in the spurs game plan.
