I thought we played better than I expected the first 30 minutes but than you could see the goal coming because we started to look tired and lost concentration.
The better team won tonight, no doubt about that. We had some possession as always but were no were near as dangerous as Spurs in the final third were it counts.
Thought Giroud had a stinker and would have liked to see Pod man get a little more time.
Sad thought is the we played about as good as we are capable of and still didn't get close. Was there any one we could have brought on to change the game? No we had our best players on the pitch and tried everything.
Finishing outside the top 4 now looks like a bigger reality than it has in a long time.
Part of me hoped for a miracle and for the first 30 minutes I thought we might be good for the draw.
Life goes on (and so does our decline :-)
We can claim all we want because we had more of the ball, but at the end of the day whenever they had it, they did something with it. We messed about with it.
We don't have the finishers and on two occasions it showed that we don't have the defence either.
Don't want any Arab investors coming in, but money needs to be spent!

John, surely it doesn't matter what nationality or religion the owner is? We live in 2013. It should be the quality of the owner and what he brings to the club that counts. Kroenke has brought nothing to AFC and seems to have little interest in "soccer". The owners of City have brought a PL title and some stability. Even Abramovich, who loves football, has brought many trophies despite the fact he almost brought just as many managers.
When given the choice between our American owner, City's Arabic owners and Chelsea's Russian owner, ours would be at the bottom of these three.
