An 80th minute penalty….3 points and fourth place…..Great ! Now let’s read between the lines…
Let me say this first. I love this beautiful football club with a passion that has never diminished since I first saw them play aged 12 (and I refuse to admit how long ago that was). My belief, optimism and desire for their success is beyond reproach. I watched as the new signings came in and my heart pounded, the adrenalin flowed like a torrent and a voice in my head kept saying “This season…maybe this season”. I expected a ‘bedding in ‘ period and regular team rotation to cope with the demands of the Premiership, Europa League and Domestic cups and a ‘Learning Curve’ for such an influx of foreign players.
I swallowed hard after the West Ham result and kept the faith but today was a struggle for me to comprehend. When nothing is going right is Defoe the only option AVB feels we have ?. What is it about having two forwards instead of one that seems to be beyond his imagination until we are 0-0 with just minutes left ? Soldado as The Lone Ranger just doesn’t work, where the hell is Tonto ??
I won’t go on but my analogy is this…..Spurs have a champagne squad that could allow them to have a vintage season….the only thing stopping the champagne flowing is the cork currently rammed in the bottle…..AVB.
His latest comments…..“The Spurs supporters can do better, very negative atmosphere” I told the team at half time “We’ll have to do this on our own”
Check the full video out on the BBC Sports Football Website. Daniel Levy knows this club inside out and if Spurs fans do go quiet then he also knows something is definitely seriously wrong and needs addressing quickly.
PS : So pleased that Andros Townsend is not seriously injured. great to see him come back on the pitch.Follow @TrfficTottenham
