I feel ashamed today.
This was a game where you would have hoped we would have been able to play with the shackles off, wasn’t it?
So what happened?
We started out with pretty much the same line-up that has failed us all season, that’s what.
And as expected, they failed us again.
So what to say about the actual game?
We looked devoid of any heart or desire.
It was shots-in early on in the game and when they got their first, you just knew what was going to come.
While I don’t think we sat back too much (certainly not as much as against Man City), was that supposedly us going for it?
You would hope not, given that our midfield were totally outclassed and created nothing yet again.
Delph looked about the only Villa player on the pitch that looked remotely interested and he at least had a couple of efforts.
At half time, Lambert replaced Jordan Bowery, a player where I just don’t see it at all, with El Ahmedi.
That said it all for me, in that it was now about damage limitation.
Is that what we’re really down to these days? It would certainly appear so.
Another damming statistic that we’re quite used to recently, is that we never had an attempt on target until yet another effort from Delph.
Anyway, enough talking about that rubbish. So why do I feel ashamed?
Because of the fans that actually travelled and paid to watch that tripe.
They were superb today and if the team were half as good as the support, in the effort put in, they’d be seriously challenging.
I looked at one of the White Hart lane stands and there I saw the words “the game is about the Glory”.
You could have fooled me.
And then I looked at the shirt sponsors.
Spurs have HP, a world-wide brand.
While we have????? exactly. That shows the gulf that exists between us nowadays.
It’s just not good enough and why we need change.
Please Randy, make the announcement that you’ve sold.
Because anything else won’t be good enough either.
