neither team was at full strength but of the small number of chances for both sides, they took one of theirs and we were not allowed one of ours! luck wasn't on our side with crouch being pulled over twice and nothing was given! the penalty just summed up our night really. still, this might force Levy to dig deep for a player or two!

This game was a reality check for us. We just don't have that winning mentality. After Hull and now this game I fear the CL dream is over.

if we win against Leeds then it will boost us for Fulham but if we lose it could prove to be real dent in our confidence. i hope lennon is back for fulham but i hate to rely on one player to make a major difference!

Unless we get a "squad" together we are going to struggle! We have a couple of players out BAE and Lennon and have no cover for them! Although Bale did better last night! We cant call it a squad as harry uses the same 13-14 players and names Bentley (not last night), pav and gio and never uses them!! FFS sell bentley and pav as harry blatently doesnt want them and get two players that he does and a cntre half as Ledley is ruined and there is too much pressure on Daws and Bassong! Buy a winger or play naughton there so we have no width, get huntelaar on loan, sending pav the other way on loan! Rant of but we just didnt look like we wanted to be there last night and ffs how did bassong forget to put his shorts on? That just about somes up the night! Atleast we can all now realise that we are NOT top four material with our current squad!!

Okay, people, pop quiz: 1) Who was it that gave a non-existent penalty at Old Traffor when we were 2-0 in 08-09 that screwd the game for us? a)Jim'll Fix It, or b)Howard Webb 2)and who was it that disallowed a perfectly legitimate goal when we were 1-0 down at Liverpool yesterday, thus costing us our chance to equalize? a)The ghost of Michael Jackson, or b)Howard Webb If you got both answers right, you've stumbled on the one JVC-jersey wearing referee who *****s us overrepeatedly, season after season, and who is fdetermined not to give up until he disallows every single goal we score in 2010 and relegates us to Blue Square Premier.

New CB, some cover for Lennon, New CM.....................thats all we need!! So lets stop looking at David James and go out and strengthen the squad properly Levy get shot of Pav, Hutton, Bentley and Jenas. If you were a mug to pay so much for them, take it on the chin and cut the wage bill. Give the money to Redknapp then there can be no more excuses!! COYS

WSE good point I somehow forgot about Hutton and Jenas (just like I did last night when they were on the pitch)! Pav=9m Bentley=10m, Hutton=5m, Jenas=swap for Muntari! Which gives us 24m to buy/Loan a Centre Half and a natural wide player! ****** knows who but that is harrys job and why he gets the Wonga! I just pray something is going on behind closed doors!! I also think we should start with anyone other than Defoe on saturday as he is a little one dimensional at times and Leeds will be doing all there work on him!

Jenas,Pavlyuchenko, Bentley, Hutton going, CB cover, CM coming....I don't think it matters very much what position they're in, WestStandEnclosure, but I want players who'd bleed for the club, who'd show passion and heart and desire,who'd never give up because they wanted to seize those three points by the balls for Tottenham, something I've accepted we don't have with a heavy sigh. Ever since *****ertov arrived, I sensed that something was going wrong with the club. We were stuffing it with overpaid prima donnas who don't realize what it is to play for Tottenham Hotspur, to play for the club, and not just to show passing big teams what they're like so they can leave. Sigh....at least we have O'hara, though the way we treated him over the first half of this season makes me very much doubt he'll be here for the second.

I'm a little confused- why was lucas playing last night? If memory serves me well he got a 5th yellow card against stoke which means he should miss the next match(spurs) anyone know why he played?
spurs4lyfe
Retire the king, Retire ledley king, he broke up a defense that was strong 5 clean sheets in row and growing in confidence and forming a partnership, it wasnt fair on bassong, and maybe not fair on ledley to be out for so long then be expected to come back for one of the most important games of the season. and mainly, We cant use up a substitution each game for ledley, no player is that good that he gets a designated substitution each game. Why bring hutton on for corluka, seriously, why, put on a attacking player in an attacking position. Gutted

Spurs4lyfe, Lucas isn't on the FA's suspended list, and he easn't on their 'Awaiting Suspension' list either, so I guess you got his cards tally off. Or more likely, Webb did...:P

WestDerbyRed, Webb's a bonafide Arsenal fan, complete with red and white jersey and burning hate for Spurs. I'm assuming Liverpool don't have a hateful referee against them, though, else you'd realize the pain of seeing your team struggle against one man in black.

The bottom line is that the Tottenham team that went out to play Liverpool were ILL PREPARED by the coaching staff to cope with the wounded animal that is Liverpool. You can rant and rave all you like about who should come in and who should be dispatched, but if the coaching staff cannot get the players the have to sweat blood for the team in every game then we are on a looser no matter what team we put out. Redknapp, Jordan and Bond are responsible for the performance on the pitch and my opinion is they were not focused enough last night. Same old Tottenham when the chips are down. Next season they will find it harder to qualify for the CL if they are in the Europa cup and they won't get a better chance than this season to move up a step. Arsenal going top was all was needed last night to put the 'RAMOS' era firmly back in place at WHL.

But do Liverpool have an anti-ref, WDR?

Yeah cards only went up to end of Dec I believe for suspensions. What price we leave any signings until last minute? I know its not always as easy as buying and selling but surely we could have done something to speed up the exit of Pav and Bentley. Even if we sold them and got no-one in so what, we never bloody use them anyway.

The Croatians failed to turn up last night - Bale was our best player, Dawson went to sleep - JJ apart from one shot on goal was no where to be seen - Liverpool got in our faces like Wolves and Stoke and stopped the pretty boys from playing Ahhhhh - SOFT, WEAK, and I have to say if Drogba had his shirt pulled off his back or scored a legitimate goal the Chelsea players would have mobbed the ref and won the penalty and goal would have been given - we just seem to take it and moan about or bad luck. Harry has to take some blame, I love the guy but why set up when you know whats coming with a team of flair players and the scrap is coming and we look like rabbitts caught in the headlights - we need a leader and some guts! or CL is a myth for us!!!!! thats the plain fact of the matter

Only pulling your leg DubaiSpur. Especially after the stick I got from Spuds when I had a rant over Greater Manchester born Lee Mason who has sent off three LFC players in the last two matches while managing to give the opposition two pens too. So yes, we do have a ref who hates us. Didn't realise Webb was a Gooner.

The Champions League is not over. We are in pretty good position. Liverpool can't maintain a streak, they win one and everyone thinks they're back. We won't get up on United, Chelsea, or Arsenal, but we can hold of Villa and Man City. Drawing and losing is not the end of the world. We just got to get Keane a little more playing time in my opinion.
