And as ASI alludes to, the sky does not collapse when captain marvel isn't around.   :D

Without him, normal team play can start to blossom.  Well played Maxi and Moreless.  And an improvement from Poulsen.


Premature to say the least. West ham are very poor at the moment. Next weekend will show the men from the boys.

it's not as if captain marvel and the shadows have been kicking sand in the faces of even the wigans, stokes and blackpools of this world.  So Spurs will be a helluva step up, especially being away from home.

In the midst of winter, I finally learned that there was, in me, an invincible summer.

There’s no next time. It’s now or never.

 :D  .....with Eric Meijer and Sean Dundee giving Fernando a lesson in forward play. I can hear Harry Hotpur's knocking knees from hear.

spurs v liverpool
november 28, 2010

end to end first half.....skitrail has put us ahead.

two friggen awesome chances at the end of the half (one for maxi, one for torres) to put us further ahead.

I hope we do not come to regret those chances being missed.

It is an excellent game.  Spurs do look devastating at times, when Bale runs at us.

But we have constantly offered a threat and are probably deserving of our lead.

half-time - spurs 0, liverpool 1

Ray Clemence is guest summariser on Radio city. Really good from us so far!  Worried about the yellows - maybe Aurelio replace Konchesky at 60-70 mins.  Your call for Maxi behind Torres is looking good. Hope all these missed chances don't haunt us later

And Carra's dislocated shoulder means both Captain and vice out at the same time. Another glorious week for us.

Sickening result, totally sickening. Should've finished the game off at the end of first half. Spurs were extremly lucky to win this one. shed team if you ask me and they can dream of finishing 4th.

Konchesky need to be benched for quite some time now. That one Roy got wrong.

Meireles he got rigth tho. Awesome performance today.

Maxi Rodrigues' inability to score sitters cost us the points today. Any average player would've scored at least 2 from his chances. Why this hate towards Jovanovic? Because he played against Northampton. Sort it out Roy.

I think tho we played well and based on play we were the better team with some crisp passing for long periods of the game.

Torres got better but started off poorly. He just isn't his old self anymore. Lack the explosive acceleration that used to help him. Maybe the hamstring injuries got to his mind?

All in all a good game where the best side lost.

Should've had at least 2 penos as well but it was clear the ref hate us.

Ref was Atkinson wasn't it? He's known to us all.  Yeah, shame about losing because we played well and it sounded like a cracking game.  Bit worrying though that we lost to a team missing some key players.

Jamie has a suspected dislocated shoulder and that will be diagnosed tomorrow. If it is then he'll be out for several weeks which is a bad blow.

Soto to fill in for him I think. Aurelio should be started at LB.
Cheers,

Agreed ASI. Tell you what though, its gonna be interesting to see what the difference is without Carra. especially after so many people wanted him to play less.  Hopefully Dan will get back soon. Just watched the winner - Konchesky is an embarrassment, he really is. Still optimistic though, that was a great performance and we deserved the win

Clem, I doubt we'll see Agger for a few more weeks. Who will get the armband? Pepe? Don't see any other obvious candidates. That's who I'd give it to.

It was probably our best away performance so far this season so the result is disappointing. But once the players have time to reflect on things they'll know they played some good passing football and all that prevented us from winning was the finishing. Why did Fernando need all those extra touches?

I only spotted this on MoTD2 tonight. As Defoe took the pen the camera behind the goal showed Torres walking towards the centre spot with his back to the play. What was all that about?
Cheers,
Ray
