This game has just summed up our seasons really! We have a great first half and we’re all over Spurs but then in the second half have been a shambles among with getting our star player injured!

Honestly I don’t think people can just blame Hasenhurtle as who the hell does he have to pick from when making these changes!? As all the subs he’s made today have been fair and understandable but in the end we don’t have a decent enough squad or enough squad depth to get anywhere at the moment! And that’s mainly down to Gao and the board! I mean I’m not saying that everything should be lifted from Ralph’s shoulders but at the same time we just have a shit owner and poor squad depth!

I mean the likes of Diallo, Djenpo and Redmond just consistently give away the ball and create bugger all! We honestly really need to sort out the squad if we want to get anywhere next season as we need someone to replace Bertrand, a new keeper (as I honestly see no major difference between Forster and McCarthy) along with another centre mid and striker!

This season is now basically over as we’re not getting relegated but we’re not going to get any higher than the likes of 13th! And unless we get in some real investments then I’m just getting fed up and board of the same teams winning every contests and is never achieving anything!

Well that was another shambles. I have always backed Ralph but I now think it is time for him to go.Cant see us getting any more points this season with Ralph in charge. We need someone like Eddie Howe to take us forward.

Spuds there for the taking and let's be brutally honest most decent teams would have been more than one up at half time. The second half fade was depressingly predictable and Spuds beat us without moving out of second gear. Bringing Diallo on was the turning point as it was around then that it got easier for Spuds and the game was up. Stupid lunge by Djenepo, until then we could have claimed we just about deserved a point against half-interested opposition.

We are unbelievably lightweight. Surely a good match to try to play on Spuds' injury fears with a couple of hefty tackles (Big Sam had his boys do it to us) but no. Our lack of stamina is laughable but is not helped by carrying passengers like Walcott. He must have been playing because I saw him substituted - but did he contribute?

Another thoroughly dispiriting game. Big changes are needed because this squad WILL go down next season. I refuse to cross to the 'Ralph Out' camp but I'd certainly say that we need to bring half a dozen players in - including a couple of big strong lads.

A great performance until Ings went off, apart from perhaps not capitalising on our superiority with more goals.

Then the whole game changed with probably our last shot of the game. Ings got injured and Ralph went defensive. WTF ? Why change a winning formula. He could have swapped like for like, or shuffled to put Theo up front, but no, he went all defensive and played right into Tottenham's hands.

Diallo thought we were still at Wembley passing to those in white FFS !! We conceded a very avoidable goal, poor keeping and defending and then our heads dropped. Ralph tried to change it back with 2 up top, but it was too little too late and the subs hindered us to the extent that we ultimately lost the game.

We didn't heed the warning with the offside goal and lost the game with a dodgy pen. Toby used his arms to control the ball, but somehow that bit was overlooked by VAR,. Djenny slid in to block the shot and got kicked in the follow through, but the foul went Spurs way and VAR did the rest.

I really am at a loss to explain the difference between the first and second half showings. Ralph royally fvcked his tactics up and we paid the ultimate price. The subs only changed the game for us in a negative way.

It's only Leicester up next. What are the odds on us finishing the season on 36 points, because it is looking more and more likely !!

We need better oranges.

Or lemons.

I'm stating the obvious here but a) RH screwed up again tactically, b) our majority of our players are not indisputably Premier quality, c) this team could still go down.

We have a bang average squad who over performed for a while and are now underperforming. I doubt if many managers would achieve much more without a huge bankroll in the summer.

If these ratings were purely based on the first half we'd have a few 9's in there......

Why are we still in negotiations with Walcott?, surely we can find a younger and better player.
