Need the players to step up and show some spirit. Our main problem all season in my opinion is a lack of desire to get on the ball, need all the players to step up and move into space and demand the ball. So many times a midfielder will pick up the ball, look up for a pass and see nothing. Then roll it back to Dawson who will lump it up field, it's absolutely pathetic.

Need to play a deeper line in defence, when our full backs venture forward, we are left with 2 centre backs against 3 attackers on the break, which was more than apparent against Liverpool.

I'd personally like to see us line up as:

--------------- Lloris

Walker Dawson Chiriches Rose

------------- Capoue
----- Dembele ------Holtby

Lennon -------------------- Lamela
------------- Adebayor

Hopefully Eriksen will come good, even though he's been injured, he still is a way off understanding what is needed of him in the premier league. I think Holtby deserves a start, has put in a few good performances and is one of the few players who actually shows some passion in trying to win the ball back as soon as we lose possession.

I'm not the biggest Adebayor fan but for me he is still the best striker at the club, Defoe and Soldado are better finishers but he holds the ball up ten times better than them combined and brings in the midfielders and wingers higher up the pitch. Without him Townsend/Lennon drop deeper to pick the ball up and are faced with 2 or 3 players to beat to get into a position to cross or have a shot.

Not hopeful for this game to be honest with the woeful performances we've put in this season. A little passion and commitment from the lads is mandatory though. They may or may not have been fans of AVB or the board but a performance is needed to show commitment to THFC and the fans. I can't actually remember a premier league game this season where we won and put in a performance that fully merited it. Although might have been blinded by this god awful run we're on.

Let's hope and go for a sneaky 2-1 win.

Good to see you pop up YoBBo. The woodwork must be overflowing with spurs fans, inevitably forcing some of you out ;-)

HT

Saints 1-1 Spurs

1-0 Lallana 13

1-1 Adebayor 25

That was an enjoyable first half especially Adebayor's acrobatic finish!

Very fine goal by Adeybayor even if it was our only shot on goal. COYS!

FT

Southampton 2-3 Tottenham
1-0 Lallana 13
1-1 Adebayor 25
1-2 Hooiveld 54 OG
2-2 Lambert 59
2-3 Adebayor 64

Tim Sherwood wins his first league match as Spurs interim manager.

I though Adebayor played very well today and deserved to be the man of the match.

If the big Togo striker could play like that every week he could be one of the best in the world.

Any comments on Tottenham's win?
