    Officially - this is crazy!

    Hi Sfer, I watched the game last night and although we lost 2-0 I thought we played some good stuff at times. 2 defensive errors cost us dearly. 1st both CB's sat back and let the guy shoot, 2nd A-E was out of position and although Vertonghen tried to cover the run the guy get his shot away across Friedel and into the far corner of the net. Could Vert have stopped the shot or should Friedel have done better??
    Anyway there were times when we created chances but didn't have anyone capable of converting them. Their keeper made some good saves, whereas our's didn't. Their strikers hit the net whereas our's couldn't!!
    Certainly we need a new keeper and at least 2 goal scorers. I think we could of won last night if that was the scenario.
    Roll on Levy getting these in MUCHO PRONTO !!

    • Hi lts, I have just spoken to a fellow Spurs fan who watched last night and he said pretty much the same thing. I just don't get it......even if we got a striker now its likely that it would take a few games for them to hit their stride and we have Newcastle, West Brom and Norwich coming up (ordinarily you would want at least 8 points from those games) so if we don't take points at these we are up against it in the first few weeks.

      There is every chance that next Sat we will be starting the match with Defoe up front on his own and if that happens we deserve to be the laughing stock that we will be IMO. Top 4?? Yeah right!

      • Mmm... I agree it seems surprising, BUT we were all saying worse this time last season & look where we were by the next transfer window.

        I may sound naive, I just get a bit frustrated by this much negativity a week before the season's started and nearly 3 weeks before the window closes. It would be really interesting to see if we are bringing some of the young'uns through, many of us have previously identified that as something we've not been strong enough with, I'd be curious to see how they settle. And whatever happens, it'll be a helluva ride!

        Also Sfer, the pedant in me can't resist... you mean 7 points, yeah? If we can get 8/9 we'd be Man U & have 'one for luck'!! ;-)
