This New Tottenham

Liverpool 0 Tottenham 0, and if we’re anywhere near honest with ourselves, not the result we expected. Given Liverpool’s recent resurgence, Tottenham’s lengthy injury list and Harry Redknapp’s personal difficulties, noone would have been surprised if the home side had run out comfortable winners. Sadly for the Liverpool faithful, who were expecting an inspirational return of the suspended Luis Suarez quite distinct from a wild kick at Scott Parker which earned him a yellow card soon after entering the fray, it wasn’t to be and they were left to be mighty thankful that Gareth Bale failed to put away a golden chance that would have left them, undeservedly, with nothing at all. But that is the stuff of match reports.

Thoughts on United

Not the best of starts to the Premier League season but was it anymore than any of us expected? United, under Ferguson, are a team that can always step up a gear when they need to and tonight was no exception. He has put together a young side (youngest side they have fielded in the Premier League apparently) but one that still has a good blend of new names and experienced players.
