Stevenage 0-0 Spurs: A Cracking Draw (Boom Boom)

Entertaining and exciting, with a most satisfying finale – oh that the game had matched the quarter-final draw, but we can’t have everything I suppose. Should I ever cross paths with His Eminence The Lord of Time there are one or two queries I would throw his way – whether Superman’s little fly-ruddy-quickly-around-the-world jape really could turn back time, for a start – but high up there on the list would be a polite request to have my two hours back after the excruciating trudge through treacle that was our draw with Stevenage. Far better to have an off-day in this particular fixture i suppose, than against l’Arse or Man Utd in the coming weeks (or indeed against Newcastle last week), but nevertheless, ‘twas the very antithesis of one of those rip-roaring unforgettable classics, to which we have been treated so frequently.

My Eyes! My Eyes!

Irrespective of formation, had those eleven played with a tad more sense and desire they would have made short work of Stevenage. Alas, the early, simple one-touch method was jettisoned for one that could aptly, if rather lazily, be described as “certified nonsense”, and as a result our heroes failed to string three successive passes together, the ball more typically being launched into orbit or pinged inaccurately sideways, as Spurs fans around the globe reached for nearby stabbing implements and went to work on their own eyes.

Of positives there were but few – the prospect of Stevenage and then Bolton, both at home, barring our way to the semi-final proving the most obvious reason for cheer. Young Livermore seemed to keep his head when all about him were losing theirs, to his credit, but that aside there was precious little to blow up anyone’s skirt until Aaron Lennon was brought on for the death throes.

Lennonlessness And Its Associated Problems

Strange to note just a week after we beat Newcastle 5-0 sans Lennon, but without the jet-heeled swagger-meister we can be dreadfully lop-sided. A reserve with similar oodles of pace would be a useful option, for while Niko Kranjcar’s technique is as dreamy as his looks, to point out that he lacks somewhat in the pace department is hardly likely to set the interweb alight with incandescent twitterings and the like. At times Danny Rose showed the value of a turn of pace to reach the byline, but against better opposition he is typically stymied by his one-footedness. With both Bale and Lennon available to charge down both flanks we ooze menace and threat and other such dangerous-sounding nouns, but in the absence of Lennon it can all become a tad predictable. (The name Junior Hoilett was bandied around during the transfer window, but scoutery of others’ players is not at all my forte, so while reports suggest that he has pace and two good feet, I can, alas, offer zero corroboration.)

Swerving back on-topic – in truth a replay against this mob, at the Lane, is tickety-boo with me. If it can be sandwiched in between 4 points or more against l’Arse and United, all the merrier, and we can all set about diligently forgetting that this ever happened.

It is frightening to realise that without Modfic,Ade’ and Ecotto,the team seemed toothless.Why did Lennon only appear at the end?Harry seems to have had an off day

Excellent article biased but very fair and descriptive of Spurs current form, however in the 2nd half we adjusted to playing with 3 centre backs……and Kaboul was a pleasant surprise at left back!
As you mentioned the treacle of a pitch and if only for that reason we actually showed how skillful a team we really are…….in the second half.
What did Harry say at half-time,as our shape was much improved…..if only the sun had decided not to come out at half-time.

Although our offence was not in perfect working order…….even with a completely changed back 3
three….we still retained a clean sheet.

I just know that on that beautiful Emirates pitch, we will show the scum how football should be played.

There is only one worrying thing came out of this game Ukad are losing the battle for Work rate in America work rate is bused in from Mexico with illegal workers in Football its ?. This is something we will have to get used too until the FA stamp it out but judging by how long i have discovered the secret four seasons ago and Reported a team who never walks alone its still about so i have me doubts one player Kolo is a joko. So Don’t worry about today’s performance its just another High work rate shock by another Cinderfukinrella team to go with Watford and its not just here its all over Europe just look at Barcelona they got beat 3-2 by Osasuna .

Well put AANP! You’re a loyal Spurs fan, but give it a rest, DavSpurs, mate! “Work rate” isn’t bused in from Mexico, even though a lot of brown and white stuff is. The green leafy stuff is grown right here in sunny CA. Anyway, back to football — lesser clubs have only one resort, work harder, run longer, try harder. It’s like that in all walks of life. You know, we’re number two, we try harder. By the way, for the last 15 minutes of today’s game we were running “high tempo” all over them with Azza. And we overran The Toon Army in the first half with an incredible tempo. Barca probably got beat because they were bored as they mostly only have Madrid to compete with. Just because they lost doesn’t mean the other team was using ephedrine or whatever. Spurs or Barca have no divine right to glory football and wins. Bumpy pitches and other teams fighting for their lives and paychecks (their own Cup Final) has more to do with it, as has the natural human inclination to let down against lesser teams. Now back to that little matter of a NLD coming up!
