    The most refreshing thing was how much it seemed to mean to him. He was ecstatic and I haven't seen emotion from an England scorer like that for a long time. Lambert, Sterling, Welbeck, Townsend's first goals didn't exude the same type of enthusiasm.

    Consistency is key for Kane now, though. It's whether he can sustain this long-term (i.e. multiple seasons) or whether he becomes a new Kevin Phillips.
    That's exactly what worries me.

    Best get him sold to Real Madrid for 100 million ASAP!

    (so it can be wasted on another Spanish striker who's completely useless)

    Tonight will be a good test for him. Italy are an altogether different prospect than Lithuania at Wembley when we're already 3-0 up, so let's see. Italy are still depleted, of course, but even playing the Azzurri offers something altogether more challenging than a minnow at home in a meaningless qualifier.

    Frustrating game to say the least. It's game like these, ones we really should be winning comfortably, that show our weakness in creativity. In recent years we've had a player that can create something out of nothing and win us a match, but we just completely lack that this season.

    Another terrible performance and a second game in a row against bottom table opposition where we haven't scored. Poch has a lot of work to do next season if we're to stop dropping points in games that we should be winning with relative ease, because our season is over and it's not looking like we'll be in Europa next year (Not that Spurs managers seem to care. At least AVB wanted to get somewhere in the tournament). Spurs are desperate for a creative midfielder.

    You make that sound like it's a bad thing.

    Spurs have a big and good enough squad to get far in the Europa cup without it having any measurable negative impact on their season. I want to see Spurs win cups. It's not as if going for a Europa cup win is going to stop us getting Champions League football. :dry:

    I think the Europa league does have an impact on our season, I can't remember the exact stat but I think we've lost most of our games on the Sunday after Europa league? Also the one year we weren't in the Europa league (when we finished about 8th in redknapps first season) was the year we finished 4th

    Europa League has a negative impact on virtually every club that enters it. Let's take a look at the Spurs results following EL games.

    Lost to WBA at home
    Lost to Newcastle at home
    Lost to Stoke at home
    Scraped a draw they didn't deserve with West Ham at home
    Lost the League Cup final

    There's no shame in losing to Chelsea in a cup final, but the other 4? Even 2 wins from that lot would put them only 1pt behind City/2 behind United.

    We finished fourth in the 2011-12 season and, whilst we didn't get out of the group stages, between September and December of 2011 of our time in the EL we lost one game, drew one game, and won ten. I think it's fair to say we had a better team in that season compared to what we have now, but I don't think the quality gap of the the Spurs squad in 2011/12 and 2014/15 is substantial enough to me for the EL to break our season.

    It's getting a bit of a joke now. That performance was shameful.

    Lol @ Chiriches and Paulinho being in your side. Mason and Bentaleb is too similar in the middle of the park and seems to have been discovered now, so you need alternatives. I don't rate Fazio still, and Dier's still raw, so your defence is woefully out of their depth challenging for the top five.

    You need a busy summer shipping out the dross: Chiriches, Paulinho, Soldado etc.

    That's most of the team.

    Lloris is probably going to go over the summer, so we're going to be in a bad situation next season if we don't spend wisely.

    They need new players in pretty much every position.

    I'm baffled by the team selection of Pochettino in all honesty.

    Think your team is done, hoping you guys are willing to sell Eriksen personally.

    Eriksen is far too good for Spurs and should be in the Champions League. I've read a lot of people say Spurs must be playing like this to avoid qualifying for the Europa, but even without that added cup I still don't think we're good enough to get fourth place. We're on the downwards spiral that AVB said Arsenal were on.

    I doubt you'll let Eriksen leave unless its for big money. It would have to be another long drawn out saga probably.

    With the TV deal coming in surely you'll have a few bob to buy players with?

    Eriksen - like Chadli - has a propensity for going anonymous at varying times throughout a game, though. Don't get me wrong, he's a fantastic player, and that's probably a flaw which can be attributed to Spurs' lack of intensity and intent when they are on the pitch. The onus on Mason and Bentaleb is far, far too high as well. There needs to be some variation in the middle of the park.
