Could have won should have won but so could they. I am worried by the piss poor form of Lallana we cannot keep carrying him. Well done to Fox dreadful at times against dyer but overall did well.

Bit harsh on AL. he did ok, just as everyone else did. No one really played that well, can hardly pick AL out. He has just come back from injury, prior to that he was making Ramirez look like a shower of sh*t. England call up, bagged a few goals, scored on his return from injury….the boy is class. That was fox’s best game this season. He is a half decent squad player that might be worth hanging on to come end of the season. Lambert looked knackered, so did Jrod. Puncheon didn’t offer much when he came on but I just think it was one of those game. It’s good to see that Poch is making subs a lot quicker than Adkins would. He is also making more of the right ones from what I can see. Great save from boruc at the end as well.
Only negative was Poch’s jeans, too short and too tight. I think him and NC were going on the piss straight after the game

Contary to the belief of some, Im not that great a fan of Fox, but I find myself sticking up for him just because of the pack mentality that surrounds him, on Saturday he did well and perhaps lostboys would like to consider that the times he looked dreadful was the times he found himself exposed due to Adam lallana not covering back.
In Fridays preview I was lambasted for daring to suggest that Pochettino might not automatically put Shaw straight back in the team, personally I thought that maybe he should have, but the manager made the decision not me and it turned out to work

Fair point but as an example when Dyer cut inside him and Fox thought he was going outside which Dyer rarely does. Other than a few lapses I thought Fox had a really good game and I would not like to play behind Lallana and it became obvious when Swansea changed their shape with Routledge coming on to exploit right midfield.
While I accept that no one except Cork had a really good game, I thought Lallana was dreadful in and out of possession and the lazy backheel in the first half when we were 4 on 3 was poor. also I do not like him remonstrating with the full back whether it be Fox or Shaw when he is the one that has given the ball away or has not tracked back. I would not have made him skipper and I think he should relinquish it until he gets his form back.
