Personally I think this is more of a case of Spurs being a class above us so far, shouldn't beat ourselves up too much. 

It's a case of us making a couple of bad mistakes I'd say.

Now everyone remembers why Mejias could not budge a 40 year old Greek for 2 years...

Think the occasion and playing in a huge stadium has got to some of the lads. Doesn't feel like the Boro of current, just the Boro of 2 months ago. Suicidal football from the off. 

Worrying about how demoralising this could get for us

All blame to Mejias for me, dropped all heads immediately with the error. 

Yep, harsh truth is keeper lost us the game in first 5 minutes by not being able to think under pressure.

2 basic mistakes have cost us. Spurs look poor. But we’ve given them the game. One things for sure. None of the players that are out of the normal first 11 are playing themselves into the team. Mejias, Johnson, Clayton, Liddle and Nmecha have all been poor!

Meh we've been smashed at home to Wednesday and away to Leeds I don't think getting smashed by CL finalists will affect the team too much I'd prefer not to lose 4/5-0 though

This is just a playground for Tottenham. We’re just nowhere to be seen. If they keep it up it could well be a tennis score.

Nmecha's looked lively making decent runs, so there's a positive.

We need to change our shape here because we're being ripped to shreds.

Yep. I knew it would be tough, but I didn't expect Boro to basically gift Spurs 2 goals through horrendous keeping and defending.

Spence's interception to set up Nmecha is about the only positive thing from Boro.

 

This game is already over as a contest. Its just a matter of how far Spurs feel like pushing...how many they want to win by.

 

Hell of it is, Spurs do look a bit flaky at the back, but we can't take advantage of their mistakes, while Spurs have ruthlessly punished ours.

    • Businesses should be means tested much like people are for social welfare. There is no way bajillionaires like Branson should get away with furloughing staff, neither should businesses with 100's of millions of pounds income per year. 
    • Liverpool have reversed the decision now. Rightly so, in my opinion. 
    • I don’t think it’s down to the working class nature of football, boxers don’t get the same flack, I think it’s because clubs are very often the heart of a community. I remember chatting to a woman I met a few years ago who wouldn’t let her kids watch football because footballers were payed an obscene amount of money. I asked her if she allowed her kids to watch Hollywood movies, of course, she said!  
    • Wherever you stand on it... Footballers do always seem to be fair game when it comes to having a pop at the rich. Is it the working class nature of football? I've always wondered.  Where are the calls for musicians, actors, or even athletes from other well-paid sports to give up their earnings for the less fortunate? Or the bankers and CEOs who squirrel millions away into offshore accounts, taking from society and never giving back? At least footballers bring a bit of joy and entertainment to millions of people a couple of times a week. 
    • Yep, its a real sob story.  But in normal life, imagine if you could live comfortably on 10% of your takehome after buying your house and car. You would only have day to day expenses, holidays, etc. You take the rest of your salary and put it in one of those long term savings accounts (or whatever) that you cannot touch for 2 years. Then your salary is reduced and that 10% is no longer enough to cover your day to day. Regardless of how much actual money that is, when you try to force people to change their living circumstances you will always have push-back.  Now of course nobody earning decent money should be in that situation. It is recommended to split your savings, some in short term (easily retrieved), some in medium term (normally a wait period to retrieve) and some in long term (not normally retrievable) eg Property and pension.  On one hand it does highlight that these are just people, like all of us. On the other hand, they are fabulously wealthy and a target for those less well off who are revered when times are good and reviled when times are bad.  I don't blame the players for earning what they do, you make hay while the sun shines and we would all probably try to earn the same if circumstances were different. The clubs though are a different story and should be looking after the non mega-rich employees.
