The wins against Blackburn, and particularly City, away, will have been a more reliable source of confidence, but, I don’t think that the same applies to the defeat to Fulham.

I’m sure they don’t deliberately get these red cards for a laugh.

Lennon was the star as everyone has said, playing mostly on the right, of course, where he is so much more comfortable and dangerous. Pavlyuchenko had a good game, and it was a surprise to see Campbell replace him rather than Bent.As David says, Blackburn lacked ambition, just trying to keep it at 1-0 in the second half and hoping for a lucky break to get them an equaliser. Could easily have happened, of course, since Spurs always look just one step away from conceding a silly goal, but they gave Gomes a free ride after the goal, having started quite brightly. A win is a win of course, but I think Spurs will be disappointed to have only scored one goal from all their posession and pressure.

So I think it best if I continue to voice it.PS – Talking of usernames, did you take yours from that ex-Man City player with very crooked teeth? Twitter Jenas and Bent are considered first teamers at Spurs?Gosh … I wasn’t aware how bad the situation was.King can only play one game each week at best due to his injury, so he isn’t strictly an automatic first team selection, is he?Stiil, that was around five times the number of first team players that were in our side. Ronwol – for a team supposedly full of confidence – they should have murdered us. Spurs had more chances against 11 men!If that was brilliant flowing football then you are coming down with us! I guess thats how bad things have been at Spurs if 10 side ways passes in a row around a team defending with 2 banks of 4 = brilliant flowing footballer! Maybe you could sign Wilkins and Barnes am sure they could do no worse.Fortunately there are at least 4 worse teams – but you really want to set your sights a little higher than a scrappy 1-0 v ten men!!!In 6 months that spurs team could be a good unit – still lacking a midfielder to be a bit more penetrative – but assume that would be Modric when he’s fit?Disappointed we didn’t have a go at your fullbacks as I reckon they are your weak point – not many are going to get much change out of Woodgate – would have liked Ince to chuck on Roberts to give him a different prob as Santa Cruz lost out all day. Reply yesplease1975 Andrews looked way off the pace in his first few games and looked like a lower league clogger with a nice line in two footed tackles – however yesterday he looked a premier league player albeit a squad player in a bottom of the table team whose manager doesn’t know his best line up.He would definitely be fantastic a championship level and seems to be growing in the prem and playing and scoring for the Republic is obviously doing wonders for his confidence.Totally agree with Pleat. We were really hoping Ince would keep 2 attackers on or at least stick someone on for the last 10 minutes but he looked pretty tactically clueless am afraid.Think Tottenham are getting a bit too much credit – two teams woefully short of confidence and quality and the side making the least errors won. Fortunately for spurs Samba and Olsson made plenty!

So taking fatigue, injuries & Rafa’s tendency to meddle in account, I think its highly unlikely that you’ll be challenging come the end of the season, if you’re using players that can’t beat our 2nd string. About as unlikely as Spurs getting relegated. Good luck though. | Pick Share Reply Twitter Share on Facebook yesplease1975 Share on Twitter Twitter Cela, thank you for admitting you’ve no idea about the match. Next time I advise you to keep your mouth shut about things you know nothing about.Yes, Liverpool are a bigger club than Spurs & have won a lot more. Well done, you have the attitude of a playground thug punching those much smaller than himself. Share on Twitter | Pick 24 Nov 2008 17:07 Reply Share I must admit I don’t feel as though I get a lot from these David Pleat articles. Ince didn’t mix things around enough? Well, in the second half he nullified the threat of Lennon (pretty much) by bringin on Simpson – Blackburn just aren’t good enough. I though Andrews acquitted himself well – at Wolves he was king of the 5 yard slightly backwards pass – I thought he was combatitive with a good engine. It was other players that let the side down – what on earth has happened to Pederson? Mind you, Bentley was pretty awful too. These are two bad sides (the game between Newcastle and Blackburn a month or so ago was the worst game of football I have seen in a long time), maybe Spurs have a lot more potential, but they will be hot and cold I reckon. Deyna, stop being a cock, Marcela stop winding Deyna up – basically in sh*t cup, a first team squad Spurs beat a second string Liverpool (with aspirations to the first team) in a game that Spurs needed more than Liverpool who were very poor. Done. 25 Nov 2008 0:30 Sportblog blogposts Share on Facebook Twitter | Pick Share Facebook Reply 0 1 Order by oldest Facebook Share Paul Ince Facebook | Pick DeynaI have no idea whether it was a Spurs second team or not. I saw the Liverpool starting XI and decided that it wasn’t worth the trip to the pub to watch the non-event that it would be. So I’m in no possition to pass a relevent comment about the relative merits of the Spurs team, who, in turn, haven’t warranted much attention from a casual impartial observer such as myself since Ossie and Ricky signed for them.Torres would obviously walk into any first team in the world, naturally, but not when he is as clearly unfit as he apparently was in the recent Worthless Cup tie.I hope that Spurs won’t need the points in their last game of the season at Anfield to avoid relegation, because we might need too them to win our 19 title (making it almost 10 times the number of titles ever won by Spurs).

Share Share Blackburn Rovers may consider a narrow defeat with 10 men to Tottenham Hotspur as an indication of brave resilience, particularly given the Londoners’ current optimistic revival, but a more adventurous approach in the second half at White Hart Lane might have made the home side twitchy. The counter-attacking pace of Aaron Lennon, Darren Bent and, later, Fraizer Campbell possibly made Paul Ince hold his cards close, but a defeat is a defeat whatever the score. This may have been an opportunity to be bolder.The morning’s soaking had led to a game of quick passing, with both teams attempting to use the width of the field in the early stages and Lennon catching the eye. So often erratic, he was full of industry, verve and, on this occasion, accuracy. With his charges unsettling Rovers, Tottenham held sway with Vedran Corluka pushing up close behind Morten Gamst Pedersen to ensure Blackburn struggled to penetrate down the left. The Croatian never let the Norwegian turn and attack the space behind and, as a result, the winger was forced inside and narrow.That actually gave Spurs more opportunities to find Lennon and, steadily, the hosts wrested midfield control as Aaron Mokoena and Keith Andrews struggled to keep up. Martin Olsson’s dithering had led to Tottenham’s goal, with the full-back dismissed as he crazily fouled the livewire Lennon six minutes before the interval. The sending off left Rovers chasing the game and Ince needed to re-group. He had two options: to retain an attacking threat with a two-man strike force in an attempt to unnerve Spurs’ back-line or to keep the game tight and hope Roque Santa Cruz could pluck an unlikely equaliser as a lone front man.He may have taken the wrong one. With Benni McCarthy sacrificed and Danny Simpson thrown on to help quell Lennon, Blackburn appeared more solid but less likely to draw level. The visitors worked feverishly, but they sat deep and allowed Tottenham far too much space in front of their massed ranks. The hosts enjoyed this privilege and were a calmer and more relaxed group, revelling in their monopoly of the ball.Blackburn had needed to be braver. When reduced to 10 men and chasing a deficit, you need to adopt a more direct and simpler game. There has to be a commitment to by-pass midfield, inevitably, but with Santa Cruz left alone up front, Ledley King and Jonathan Woodgate accepted the balls pumped up from the back like meat and drink. The Paraguayan needed a partner to support him (see potential position of another striker in the diagram, left). As it was, his nearest team-mates were out wide where Pedersen and Brett Emerton had been forced far too deep.Had Ince sacrificed one of his midfield quartet at the interval and adopted a narrow three in the centre, with McCarthy retained alongside Santa Cruz and a more direct style of play, then Spurs might have been penetrated. Instead, Lennon had scarred them too much in the early stages and the safety-first approach yielded a loss. Narrow defeat it may have been, but defeat it remained. yesplease1975 Share on Pinterest Sorry there was an error. Please try again later.
