Spurs 0 -1 Villa; What a brilliant 3 points!

Well, that was unexpected, wasn’t it? Well, it was from me anyway.

That is the first game Spurs have lost at home since November, let’s not forget that.

While it might be easy to say that Spurs didn’t play to their best and had vital players missing, the latter point seems to have applied to us for a very long time.
They had a somewhat makeshift defence and so did we. Hence you can’t give Spurs any credit for that, in my opinion.

So what made this one so good?
It was simply the overall application.
Anyone who thinks that the players don’t want to play for Sherwood is quite frankly deluded and those players on the pitch today ran their proverbials off.

There were four possibles for man of the match today.
Delph for his constant running and energy.
Sanchez, who did what I expected him to do, in being a holder/stopper.
Benteke, who got the goal, but more importantly is beginning to show another dimension to his game, with his passing and vision.

And the Villa fans who were actually there.

You never know how the fans sound at the ground, compared to how the mics are set up, but from where I watched the game, they were simply outstanding and I think they edged it.
The consensus overall, is that we have brilliant away fans, some of the best in the game.
Hence I’m happy to give it to them.

I’ll probably expand more on my thoughts about the actual game in the thread, but my immediate thought is “papering over the cracks?”.
I don’t think so and to be honest, I’m glad to see some Sherwood haters proven wrong.

There aren’t many teams who win at Spurs and I’m simply chuffed to bits.

There are still many twists and turns to be seen before this season is out.

    Well, I’ve just watched the second half of the Manc game and guess what?
    Citeh don’t scare me in the slightest.
    No doubt Oohah will say we can’t possibly beat them, as they’re top 4.
    But I think we can, with a bit of luck.

    Question…..I have been away for a couple of months. I have trawled the net since I came back to see what punishment the FA gave us for the pitch invasion. Cant find anything though. Surely they must have decided by now!

    Can anyone give me a link or an answer?

    Cheers

    We can beat anyone IMO. I am positive going into every game. Sheerwood seems to have the attitude that I like. Give 100%, entertain and score at least one more than the opposition. No team should ever turn up thinking they will lose. I think Gabby (if fit) and Benteke can give them real problems. I am confident that we will get at least 7 more points!

      I did hear Langford ,the blue noses had to stop fans running onto the pitch when celebrating corner kicks costing them money.

    So thinking forward to next weekend, what team do you think we should start against the scousers?

    If Hutton is fit, I wonder whether he should slot in at right back and push Bacuna into the midfield, with Cleverley slotting into Sanchez’s spot. I think it would be suicide to put Sinclair or Nzogbia in instead, as we will be too open. The other option would be a straight sawp for Westwood.

    But If Hutton isnt back and Westwood isnt fit, I think he may have a bit of a selection headache. The other midfielders are very attack-minded.

    The Sun is shining and Villa are winning. Whaddiditellya? At the moment it is looking good weather-wise for Wembley on Sat. Villa don’t play along with the old gag about watching the grass grow if the team are playing crap. Villa play crap when the grass isn’t growing – from November to March.

    Tim’s crack about icing on the cake players is going to be extremely tested I fear. The marzipan got himself stupidly suspended so we will have a small cake with thicker icing come Saturday. The chef has just a week to turn some egg-beaters into world-beaters and I think it will be too tough. A pity because nobody does sour-faced-git better than Rogers when he has lost and I was hoping to see him in full sulk.

    I am once again looking in my crystal ball (I actually haven’t done too bad so far!) and I predict –

    Villa win in extra time in the Cup

    Villa really unlucky at Man City – they only draw!!!
