Didn't Lovren come out with that shit last season...how did that work out for him?
He went to a team in the Champions League and was shown up for being a man suited to one team, yet looked particularly average in another.

Just like Fazio. Top defender in a conventional defence, bang average in a high line.

My world football knowledge has regressed a little in the last couple of years so I'd be intrigued to know which other teams employ the same high pressing game that AVB, Poch and Guardiola use?

Dortmund, Ajax, Marseille?

Seems like the only really reliable way to buy defenders to fit our system is to poach them from clubs where we can see them already working well in the same set-up.

Fazio moved to a new country with a different style of football to the one he's used to going up against and didn't even cost half of what Lovren did.

Leverkusen are the nuttiest of the group. Barcelona still, Roma at random moments.

I think our defence will be alot better if we adopt a Mourinho/Simone/Jardim style of game. Monaco doesn't have the best gk and slow defenders like Carvalho and Raggi yet they have the best defence in the league.

Yes, but we're Tottenham. We don't play that way. Regardless of anything else, even Levy doesn't like defensive football.

Absolutely. And don't forget the other youngsters breaking through. We really should push on now. It's rare to get a group of the youth team all breaking through at once. Balance it out with some experienced heads (eg Milner, MS) & I think it's happy clappy time.
I don't know why, but for half a second I read your name as Greaves357_bestever and I really lost it. Then I realized it was just you, and the days of greaves turning a new leaf and deciding to be positive were all a lie.

also, the idea of greaves saying 'happy clappy time'...
lol

I honestly have no idea where to post this but behind Chelsea we lead the Premier League the longest.

Just a bit more consistency next season please
