As I'm starting this thread, the topic applies to Spurs for that Downing goal on the error at the back..
BUT, irregardless of that, while (watch this corner go in for Vertognen again) there have been so many individual errors today that I've lost count..
Lucas has been nothing better than poor. He looks slow, not fit, late with his challenges, alot of fouls, and hasn't found a pass that could hit the side of a barn ..
Carra is a mess unfortunately. Could argue he was fouled on that 2nd goal, but he headed the ball into the ground, bungles it, hits Agger and in.. We're bad back there on these plays, and to be honest, whatever's going on with Skrtel and Rodgers, unless his form in training is truly that bad, should be put aside because Skrtel could have dealt with both goals better, being taller and a better athlete.
Sturridge largely non-existent or trying to play a one man show with too many fancy plays, and playing to make a highlight reel, rather than using the ball smart
Glen a bit sloppy, seems Glenda showed up today.
Not much from Downing until that goal, a gift.
Suarez, Coutinho, Gerrard easily the best, Enrique and Agger good, Jones not too bad. But overall, our defenders and midfield have been very sloppy for me.
After saying all that and not knowing the outcome, I think we can see improvement and the ability to play amongst the top (Spurs unbeaten in 14) just like City, but the difference is our lack of something more in the midfield, and a class CB. I really thought they way they were going last year, Skrtel and Agger looked perfect, but it's not to be, and while very slow, Vertognen and Dawson are tidy and a bit of class, especially when attacking on set pieces.
It looked to me like Gerrard and Lucas were comlpetely dominated in midfield but really I think it Tottenham playing well and making our players look ordinary/rubbish but hey we got the result and knocked them on their #$%$ which they really had coming since that 4-1 drumming at White Heart Lane last season which I was still really sore about.
Altogehter a fantastic result, great to see us win a game "dirty" finaly, could have done with a couple of wins like this last season for King Kenny but I will take it all the same.
Well done the men in red YNWA

It is a sign of improvement when you can force a win when you aren't at the top of your game, I thought we were the better team for the opening 37 minutes then as soon as we scored they were all over us for half an hour or so. All season we have been playing well and not always getting the result, playing well and getting the result but never have we done anything but lose when we haven't turned up. Im glad, we played much better at WHL but got nothing so I think Spurs would have to agree they were probably lucky to take 3 points out of the 2 fixtures!
