So I sneaked out of work early to make sure I could at least watch the second half of the game, only to find that the site had gone down again.
Pulling my hair out, I got in touch with the site host and they rebooted the services, which got the site up again.
Hopefully things will be ok now, but rest assured, if there are further problems, they’ll only be temporary. We’re not going anywhere.
Anyway, the truth is because I was trying to sort the site out, I didn’t actually get to see much of the game.
What I did see though, looked reasonably encouraging, as we were working hard as per usual.
Until Benteke got sent off.
I didn’t see what happened beforehand (if anything), but it seemed to me Benteke blatantly shoved the opposition player in the back and there was some retaliation.
Then the argy-bargy started and importantly, I thought one of the Spurs players all but head-butted Benteke, which is what led to the big fella shoving him in the face.
Once you do that though, there can only be one decision and the red was correctly given, if the ref hadn’t seen the near head-butt.
What a choker, as not only have we lost this game, but it means we miss Benteke for the next three games.
And then it all went to script really, didn’t it?
Gabby doesn’t even bother tracking his man from a corner and Chadli sneaks around the back for an easy goal.
And then Kane scores from a free kick, albeit with a massive deflection from Baker which left Guzan stranded.
That’s six defeats on the trot; the worst record in seven years, I believe.
It just seems like nothing whatsoever is going right for us and it’s very hard to swallow.
