The claret carpet was too distracting

it's not going to end well when the likes of Pedro, William, Kovacic, Batshuyai, Giroud, Pullisic are getting the likes of Mount, Abraham and god knows who else picked above them constantly.
Mount and Abraham have arguably been their best players! Abraham is second top scorer in the league with a goal every 70 minutes.

Kovacic is getting plenty of game time, same amount of apps as Mount.

Willian has 8 appearances, Pedro 7, Pulisic 6 and they're all competing against each other anyway. Funnily enough, the squad seems happy enough too.

Lampard will outlast Solskjaer that's for sure.

Abraham's goal exploits have been against Champipnship defences, Norwich, Sheffield United and a poor Wolves side.

He's a decent forward but a bit of a flat track bully at the moment.

Hopefully he develops into a very good player for England though.

I'd start him over Harry Kane who is in poor form and forces his team to play a certain way with his one dimensional style.

Harry Kane has 5 goals in 7 appearances in the Premier League, 2 in 2 in Champions League and is captaining the England side who are smashing four or five goals in every qualifier.

Definitely needs dropping for Tammy Abraham

Which is more than their other strikers have produced...

If Mount and Abrham are your best performers though, you're in trouble, that's Bouremouth/West Ham level, reminds me every time Chelsea have an off-season people wax lyrically about William because all the real players switch off so William comes for the forefront

And yet, they don't look in trouble....

And who are these "real players" you speak of? Because you don't seem to rate any of their players....

:idea:
3 of those 5 league goals were penalties, both of those Champions League goals were penalties, 2 of his goals for England were penalties.

Tottenham look worse when he plays in my opinion, so I'm happy for him to play for them.

There would be a queue for him quite quickly if he became available. I reckon he is a packet of Tunes away from being the complete goal scorer.

Still whacking them in the back of the net, don't matter how they come.

hating to quote statistics as I know how much it pisses people off.....

but according to Wiki

appearances for Spurs = 185
goals scored = 130

appearances for England = 41
goals scored = 26

now of course you just can't trust statistics..........as they prove nothing at all........
