Alderweireld and Vertonghen have literally done nothing wrong in the game. They’ve actually defended quite well considering how exposed they’ve been.
It’s all been about Pochettino’s decision to position Rose and Trippier so advanced.
I've seen Kieran Trippier have a lot of bad defensive games for Spurs - the Leroy Sane saga stands out for one - but this might just be the worst. His decision-making and one-on-one defending have been abysmal.
#TOT XI top play #LFC: Vorm, Trippier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose, Dier, Dembele, Winks, Eriksen, Moura, Kane.

Could see that result happening. Can't play against Salah, Firminho and Mane with 2 CBs and what are essentially wingbacks in Trippier and Rose. I can deal with losing but not losing without ever really turning up.

Thoughts on today:
- Vorm is genuinely awful, we’re lucky to have Lloris
- We missed Dele massively
- I know he scored, but I lose brain cells watching Lamela and some of the decisions he makes
- Trippier is bang average, can’t defend or stay in position, Aurier >
@theodelaney It could certainly have ended in Christian Gross type scoreline. Team looks dull and jaded and so does Poch. His tactic of leaving wide open spaces behind Trippier and Rose totally unhinged us
Trippier is just not athletically good enough to play against top teams with fast wingers. Guys like Sane and Mane tear him apart every time they play and against good teams his best ability in crossing is less useful because he has to defend more.
@hallambad As soon as Vorm played the ball out to the CB Liverpool were on it, all over the pitch they were quicker, sharper....they always had 2 wide to exploit Rose/Trippier going forward, was painful to watch at times.
@MrOKanenas What about KWP? Aurier isn’t liked by many Spurs fans. I get that. He’s reckless and not improved much on his times at Spurs. But what has Trippier done in his Spurs career? Yet is talked about in the same class as Walker 😂😂😂😂😂😂
@steinoliver_ Don’t think they played badly. I think like you say from a mentality point they weren’t smart enough. E.g if Liverpool have a speedy counter let’s not push up with Rose and trippier, but they did. Liverpool didn’t play well enough to punish them as hard as they could’ve.
They’re are some thick cunts on twitter. Yeah, Vorm fucked Up for the second goal. But how the fuck can Mane get in behind Trippier so easily? I fucking hate Trippier. He is utter cunt. Get him out of Tottenham. He’s a fucking fraud. Hate him.
Awful team performance today. The manager got it wrong again today. That Centre midfield 🤷🏽♂️Eriksen wider 🤷🏽♂️And on top of that some awful performances. Vorm, Trippier, Dembele, Dier,.. They need to fucking get a grip and buck up.
Dier dembele and trippier aren’t good enough anymore. Selling walker has to be the biggest mistake this poch spurs era. Kane needs to be rested and eriksen might aswell still be on holiday judging by this seasons peformances
Liverpool got the 3 points today but to narrowly get away with a 2-1 when spurs play like that won’t win you a title and Spurs won’t get top 4
@HayroKara@SpursGotLevyd Honestly feel lost to the better team. During the game we showed defensive naivety. Trippier & Rose were always caught out & there was too much space behind them & a fav of mine Dier wasn’t at the races. Nothing to do with summer activity more to do with game plan tactics. #IPWT
@WindyCOYS@ComradeYouSpurs You are talking absolute rubbish. Trippier had a bad game and you're going on like he is bad. He is a class right back. Very good player ( my opinion ) also my opinion on your opinion.
@SpursOfficial@ErikLamela Wrong team selection
After today’s performance, trippier shouldn’t start another match against any top 4 team. All good he can cross but if you’re not even going to make runs into the final third let alone pass the ball forward, what’s the point of being on the pitch. He isn’t good enough for spurs.
Michel vorm, Eric dier, Christian Eriksen, Harry Kane and Kieran trippier better be posting their obligatory ‘not good enough from us today we will bounce back stronger’ posts with an excessive apology at the end of it, absolute joke fellas 🤬
People blaming Poch for his tactics today should also look at the decision making of the players. Especially Rose & Trippier, who too often were so far out of position it was a joke. They need to pick their moments to bomb on, not just do it every time we had possession
