At Blackburn Rovers today it was another display that didn’t impress by Spurs. We showed signs of playing good football but it seems to happen in fits and starts. Then because we don’t score we seem to panic in defence and concede.
Today’s conceded goal was once again down to the fact we don’t close down quick enough. Surely someone on the coaching staff sees this!? It was a stunning strike by Tugay, Robbo was so close to saving it!
I must say I was surprised to see Defoe and Mido up front, but the latter didn’t look particularly fit after his spell out injured. Jermain did have some good chances though, pity he didn’t get his shots on target. Least he did manage to score the penalty to equalise, although even though it was a penalty, I think it was harsh that Tugay was sent off.
There were claims that Mido handballed in the penalty area. It didn’t look like it from most of the angles I saw it at, but later one angle made it look like a stonewall penalty.
Ghaly’s red card looked harsh, sure he caught whoever it was, but it didn’t look like he did anything on purpose. The aftermath was a farce with Martin Jol looking like he got his marching orders too, but turns out he didn’t. Bizarre end to a game. Least we got a point.
