Okay, losing 4-1 at home is never an ideal result, but should we consider it as a kick up the backside than a kick in the teeth?
Watching the game last night, the whole thing was a little subdued from players to a 2/3`s empty (or is it full) White Hart Lane. There simply wasn`t the excitement from the crowd and the players looked just what they probably were, either undercooked or fatigued from their travelling. Newquay it is next year then...
In truth it wasn`t a good or inspiring display, with more disappointing performances that ones to inspire, but we have to consider that regaining form and fitness is the intention and results mean little or nothing.
If we cast our minds back two years to our final pre season game at WHL and a 5-0 demolition of Roma. Talk on the way from the ground was all about what a brilliant manager we had and how brilliant a season lie ahead. The result was of course Ramos out after only eight games with the now famous two points...
I know that winning is a great habit to have and certainly losing and conceding four goals at home is poor, but if it refocus`s the players` minds and tempers fan expectation, it has to give more positives that negatives.
If we look for positives, I would instantly look towards Tom Huddlestone, who for me was excellent last night, calm and commanding in the middle and he looked to be the natural leader on the pitch in the second half when Keane and Dawson were removed.
Lennon was too often starved of decent ball, all too often supplied to feet instead of space, but on balance he looked sharp, similarly with Defoe. Also what about Gio? A bright performance and our only goal. Keep that up and we will all be very happy. Niko looked happy when played in a more central role, where he could have more influence and BAE looked good at left back, so all is not lost regardless of result, but the boys know they have to up the tempo and stop the silly mistakes which ultimately cost us the game, not a terrible performance that the result would indicate...
