Another new era looming at the Lane

Walking out of the ground with growing resignation of the misery to come, following the abject Spurs display against Norwich.

Enduring the Wembley way sheep herding after a humiliating thrashing at the hands of Chelsea.

Watching on as our North London rivals ease past us into third spot while Roberto di Matteo’s side storm into the Champions League final, to add to their FA Cup charge.

It’s been a bitter, depressing time. Continue reading

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. This particular review is more about this new Tottenham, who turned up at Anfield without their manager, missing Aaron Lennon, Younes Kaboul, Rafael Van der Vaart, Sandro and Jermaine Defoe and with a bench bordering on the unknown.

A Look Ahead to Spurs V Villa

Two weeks without Premier League football, two England Man of the Match Awards (for Scott Parker and Kyle Walker). A Wales Man of the Match Award (for Gareth Bale), A Croatian Man of the Match (Luka Modric) and a nice rest for the rest of the first team. Everything points to a chance to get going again following a somewhat fortunate win against Fulham a fortnight ago. Continue reading

two dropped or one gained?

Some would argue that if you take the lead twice you should go on and win the game. Others would say that a point away against a form team is a good result but which one is right? Before the game the majority of Spurs  fans I know would have been happy with a point so why are there some disgruntled posts around the web tonight?
