He is just not good enough at the moment. Simple as.

I see no point of finding excuses - 2nd string players have to use every chance they can get. And play wherever they are put to play. If they do well, they get more chances.

Right now he has been playing game after game and has been worst defender on the field in number of games in a row. Does not look like constant playing time is making much difference. I really hope we don't see him much of him this season anymore. Only EPL games left + in FA Cup we play Brighton that is way above his current level as well.

Though it might look like we will keep him around, cause -
- who would want him after his last 5-6 games?
- still have to be wary of injuries with Dier having been out and Romero just coming back

Next season send him to Championship on loan, or if any decent bids come in - sell him with buy-back option, just in case.

This is key...... With no chance of Conte playing Rodon, loaning him out would just be reckless.
 
Out for the rest of the season.

A statement on the official Spurs site read: “Japhet Tanganga has undergone surgery on his right knee and will be out for the remainder of the season.


“The England Under-21 international will undergo a period of recovery and is expected to return to training during the pre-season period.”


I think Conte likes him so let's hope he can get fit for next season.
Personally I would loan him.
 
Must be either a MCL or ACL injury but as our medical department gives zero detail on injuries we will probably never know.

Reminds me of Wanyama where we never actually got a clear diagnosis of what his career-destroying knee injury actually was.
 
Tanganga made 19 appearances in all competitions this season - including an excellent contribution to beating Man City pocketing both Sterling & Grealish.

Real shame he's out for the rest of the season, hopefully back fully fit for pre-season - was rarely if ever injured in Spurs youth but seems to have had a couple when playing for the first team.

Best of luck to him
 
Needs be loaned out all next season- send him and Sarr to Norwich for the full season, please. Never gonna get enough games here at his current level, and won't get to a higher level without more games. Levy I hope you are reading this, you bald bum.

I dunno what CCV's contract situation is, but he might be a nice stopgap 5th/6th choice RCB for us next season while Tanganga goes on loan.

Wanyama's been on £62K/wk at Montreal in MLS.

His stats against ManCity were impressive as were they against Liverpool previously. Clearly able to cope with playing at the top, so hope he's back to start again on pre-season
 
He's in danger of becoming one of those players that will be a bit part player at a club due to his ability to play in three or four positions, but not excel in any. I'm not even sure what his best position might be as of right now.

I feel pretty convinced at this point that his best position is RCB. Hes definitely more defensive but lacks a bit of height compared to most CBs. After that I'd say he's best as a shutdown, Kyle Walker-style RB (needs work on his offensive game, as did/does walker). And I think it's pretty clear he doesn't have the offensive skills to be a RWB.

Though he has the skillset and disposition to be a CB, that lack of height is a real killer in a league like the prem, where teams like West Ham are putting midfields of Soucek and Rice out there- it really helps on set pieces to have as many tall bodies as possible- obviously while trying not to sacrifice the quality of football as much as possible.

I know this whole thing with height is a bit of an anaethema for some, but hopefully its understood as just another opinion on footballing.
