I'm delighted with the three points. Right in the conversation again for European football, although Leicester are doing their best to fuck up any chance of the ultimate prize (well, the ultimate behind the three who are streets ahead)
I bet that Leicester bellend who was on here earlier this season isn't feeling so fucking clever now.

Next England 11 should have Coady and Kilman as the CBs. It won't as "no-look" Maguire will still be picked.

I do know that Southgate has watched several of our games to specifically see what Kilman is about though, so one lives in hope.
Maguire, Stones, Kilman and Coady would be the 4 CB's for me.

They won't be though.

Great result, thought some decent attacking moves lead to their mistakes and our goals, probably should have scored more
Donk was good imo, Cundle struggled a bit early on but got better as the game wore on, got to be pleased with his overall performance.
Raul was almost back to his best first half but as he tired he held onto the ball too long.
Podence is an interesting one, fucks up possession a lot but he really tries to make things happen when some of our other players try to be too safe.
Weird brain fart by Sa towards the end.
Defence mostly good although Saiss was wasteful on the ball first half and Semedo gave away possession very cheaply in dodgy areas a few times.
Was frustrating how we kept turning over the ball second half, often when under no real pressure.

Good recovery by Davies that, not sure Raul could get the shot away.
This; it was one of Spurs' few good defensive moments on the day. Would be harsh on Cundle or Raul to nitpick them on it.

Bit like Bennett on Willian previously, good challenge in the circumstances but a better first touch from the attacker doesn't give them the opportunity to make it.

Just looking at the table and the teams around and about from 4th to 9th, getting into that 4th spot is by no means out of reach. It just depends on us getting some consistency in front of goal. At the moment, on form, you'd say it is going to come down to Arsenal, West Ham or ourselves. Man Utd and Spurs just don't look very good. But with the players both of those 2 teams have, you wouldn't be surprised if they put a run together and sneaked in there, even if neither really deserve 4th.

I think his first touch wasn't far enough infront to just finish with his second touch so he had to try and hold Davies off while adjusting which made it really difficult.

Just saw the interview with Cundle what a genuinely nice down to earth kid

Spurs away. 3 points. Standard.

Really impressed with our performance today. We struggled to get out 2nd half but I felt like that was more to do with us being unwilling to commit men forward than Spurs dominating the game. It changed once Trincão and Hwang came on, all of a sudden we had a way out and looked comfortable (apart from the one flap by Sa).

Thought Cundle was excellent. On the train back from the game so haven't read any of the reaction but I thought he was only just a mark below Kilman & Dendoncker for MOTM. At the ground it felt like he never gave the ball away once which was especially impressive given the way we sat back after the break.

Great result, been tied up all day so missed it, but nice to get a good result after the dissapointing Arsenal game.

Just back - how you can get completely saturated watching football in a billion pound stadium (you’d think most of it would be covered) is beyond me - only negative part of the day though.

Totally did a job on them today - was worried about Spurs starting quick and getting an early goal but we didn’t let them settle and two early goals effectively killed it - we could have had more too (story of our season I guess)

Spurs were poor but we are so solid and organised out of possession. Our possession and one touch passing is beautiful to watch at times. We (Neves) completely controlled the middle of the park and that was where the game was won - Kane was coming deeper and deeper and offered nothing up top as a result.

Difficult to single out players but Neves and Kilman (both, again) were superb. Defensively, as a team, we were brilliant.

As usual, the Spurs crowd got on their back and they looked nervous and without a plan. Bit disappointed with the Wolves fans reaction towards Doc, but there you go.

I feel honoured and privileged to have watched Ruben Neves at Wolves - what a player.
