But of a reach that I think, I wouldn't say he as the direct cause of either goals unlike the Chelsea (1st leg) and Morcombe match.
disagreed.
Better / clear tackle for 2nd would have blocked the shot.
It literally deflected in from his leg, more chance that Lloris would have saved it if not for that too indecisive interfearance. His touch took Lloris out and let the ball in.

He was stretching for the ball, of course there's a risk that he may not get to it but it took a deflection off him, I mean you can put blame on him if you want to scapegoat someone but it's hardly anywhere near his errors in the previous matches.

True, and I am not saying he singlehandedly is at fault of this goal.

Just saying that better defender with quicker reaction would have got enough on the ball to stop it, not directing it to own net.
 
Our biggest weakness this season and last is the poor 2nd 11. Now either we rotate more to maintain more players getting enough matches or players like Tanganga have to be good enough to play when called upon. Cannot worry about him not getting enough games as we need to strengthen the squad. He has played enough over the last 2 years without establishing himself. I question whether he will ever be good enough for the first 11 and if he stays will have to be content with a supporting role.
 
I’d be sad to see Tanganga leave as I think there’s a player in there.

Lack of consistent game time has really hindered his progress. He should have had a season on loan in the championship last year like Skipp; we’d have a far greater understanding of his potential if he had.

As it is this last run in the team has been underwhelming and it looks like we’re ready to cash in. It’s important we use the loan system more effectively going forward.
 
This is not gossip this is quoting his agent. JT was due to go on loan but after his great game v City in our opener it was decided (Nuno?) to keep him at Spurs.
Anyone who tells you that no luck is involved in a player's career is a liar.
 
Again, homegrown problem. Can we actually rely on this guy as a squad player?

I like his attitude, but he's just a foul machine.
I don't like his attitude, he's stupid. It seems he's combative cause he has zero awareness, always late, always putting a foot wrong and trying to compensate with power. He's been owned in a regular basis by every player he faces.

He was probably alright at the youth levels with his physique. He is definitely not premier league level at the moment. I am not sure he would cope in the Championship either. As you say, the mental side is just not there.
