So
Southampton are right up there in the chart of 'winning ball back in opposition half' - no surprise that their main tactical focus worked well against us when it does against everyone else as well.
Southampton are a pretty decent team, make no mistake. To win 2 -0 ( I don't count Lloris' brain fart as a real goal) against them with 10 men is a real achievement. I don't understand the negative posts. Can anyone explain to me what goes through the mind of these people?
Doesn't anything make them happy?

Hugo made 2 excellent saves in the 2nd half to stop certain goals. Excellent shot stopping, just didn't understand how such an experienced GK could have made such an amateur series of mistakes leading to their goal.
Lloris has always had the potential to concede a goal in that way. Thinks he's a footballer - but he's not, he's a goalie. And he got a sharp reminder of it.

One question - why is Nathan Redmon not facing a FA charge of simulation??
He got Aurier sent off for barely any contact if any. The FA have charged other players this season so is this going to be consistently applied or is there a different rule for Tottenham??
Aurier pulled at Redmond's shorts, which is technically a yellow card offence, given as a yellow card in the majority of cases.

Reason why Aurier was sent off was that he did that 3 minutes after a likely red card offence was given as a yellow card.

So 10/10 for Aurier ignoring the earning of being given a warning yellow card and showing his lack of brain power by purposely doing a 2nd yellow card offence in full view of the referee. Asking the ref to make s decision made the red card inevitable

So Redmond didn't get Aurier sent off, Auriers stupidity did

Maybe he had a tenner with Paddy Power on getting sent off during the game!!

All true - except it was Bertrand....

Tell yourself what you want Stevee. Ignore the facts/stats, ignore the fact that we’ve constantly coughed up games for the last few months through sloppy defending to the point where even Poch is saying we need to eradicate it.

If you want to think that we defended our right side well yesterday, knock yourself out.
I'm not ignoring anything.
Only saying that stats can be interpreted in different ways.

Sometimes they just tell a very simple story though. We let a lot of ball into our box, particularly down the right. I watched it happen, the stats just confirm that.

And it's a weakness of this team generally, the amount of crosses and shots we've allowed in other games. 32 crosses/30 shots v City, 25/26 v Arse, 17/16 v Olympiacos, 20/16 v Leicester.

We have got to tighten up. Individually and collectively we have to start being better defensively.
