    Attack Stat; Saints

    Evening fellow yids.
    Watched the game on football first last night and as some of you have mentioned we looked ok,and had Defoe of worn his football boots on instead of the groundsmen toe tectors, perhaps we could of gone off 3 or 4 nil up at half time.
    Rumour has it that he took out 2 pigeons and an Eagle with the last shot it was that high.
    Joking aside, i thought Hudd looked ok in the first half as he was giving decent balls left and right and seemed to be up to play with the rest of the team.
    I thought i might just mention that as he is definately the player under our radar at the mo.
    However the second half was a diffrerent story.
    The Saints came out and upped it a gear and we seemed to fall apart.
    Walker seems to be doing what he wants and not what he should be doing,-Vert looked like he was running out of steam,-thier was no shape,-no leadership and to be honest we were lucky to get the win as i don't remember thier keeper having to make a decent save of any sort.
    Another thing that sprung to mind is that i don't remember Caulker making any defensive headers or cynical challenges, which has always been a part of DAWS game,and as i think SFER pointed out we need him back NOW!
    He's just coming up for 29yrs old,and is a Spurs player through and through and the sooner AVB realises this the better.
    One things for certain is that he would put Walker in his place and give us back a fairly solid back 4 instead of the all over the place one we have at the mo.
    Anyway, rant over and looking forward to more thoughtfull SURS.

    • Only just seen the game.
      The comments already made here seem to sum it up.

      I thought Lemmon again looked good when on the ball, and T'Hudd did ok.

      Even the first half wasn't 'sparkling' stuff was it - an able performance but not stunning. The second half - well, it lacked a bit. I thought Saints were unlucky not to get the draw.

      But another win - young Andre seems to have a knack of getting results from poor performances - very good in a way. I'd still like a few more convincing overall performances though.
