playing well so far.. SPurs are their for the taking..interesting to note when we got the point away they had Assou Ekotto and bale on the Left and we took them apart down that side.. same 2 players tonight and all our play getting in behind them...They are both far too attacking..we''ll have Spurs tonight!

We''re not allowed penalties, I''m beginning to believe that nonsense about the lino in front of the away fans...

Oh Wes, you legend!

Who other than Norwich City, could lose to non-league Luton and only a few days later be 1-0 up against Spurs?

Are Spurs are ''good'' team to play? Like we''re Liverpool''s? Plenty of time to go still of course, but playing much better than we have done recently, got the goal.

As with Arsenal and Man U, Spurs look slow and like they''re playing in treacle. Is it the way we''ve set up or do teams just not fancy coming here?

The way we''re set up.

Arsenal and Man.U did fine here last year, as did Spurs. Man.C too.

Like the Arsenal and Man.U games we''ve just got the right game plan implemented, and so far its working. One of, if not the key part of the plan is to stop the other side from being effective.

can someone find out the stat for number of free kicks in the spurs half ? seem to be winning a lot from fouls from behind

played well so far.

Lets hope we dont see the usual routine of coming out in the 2nd half and trying to defend a 1 nil lead for 45 minutes

[quote user="city-till-i-die"]We look like the team that went on that 10 game run. OTBC[/quote]Where was this team when I traveled through the snow and spent hundreds to watch at Anfield? Great stuff so far, they look motivated and creative and thank fock for that! Fingers crossed we start the second half well and don''t concede!

We literally do look like that team again. Sharper, focused and working hard to close down. Long 45mins to go but we should go on to win if we reproduce the first half display. Bunn made a great save after not having had much to do.

Seems to have been a change in defensive strategy since Liverpool. For the most part this season we''ve sat deep and tried to maintain an organised defensive shape. Noticed that we''ve been pressing quite high so far, looking to force Spurs to kick the ball long to Defoe (who is dominated in the air by Bassong & Turner). Also seems that we are trying to cross more often and from deeper areas, trying to exploit the space behind Spurs''s high defensive line and put pressure in their keeper (who hasn''t looked very confident claiming high balls).
Good first half, keep it up for the second.
