'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Positives!

There are so many of them, we all know how fickle fans are and it translate's to support for both team and manager....and our's is failing!!!

AVB has had a very believable amount of stick this year, not believable because of his performance, but believable because there was once a journalist who let a starving child die shortly after taking a photo of him...and this stereotypes the journalist's of today. Onwards and upwards! We need to be bright, too much down talk, bottom line? We're sitting 6th (Soon to be 5th, I mean West Ham....really? Get back where you belong) and I think we're doing impeccably well.

We've lost Modric, we've lost VdV, we haven't been able to play Dembele or Kaboul really, who are undeniably two of our best players, in very crucial positions. Long gone are the days of knowing exactly what formation was coming up, we also don't hear any more of that bulls**t that we were unlucky, or that we will never compete with these teams, or that injuries have cost us, or that we're Spurs with a 35,000 seat stadium and these clubs have billionaire owners....we have a manager not full of excuses, but full of determination and grit, enough to get us a 3-2 result at Old Trafford.

read somewhere earlier where a Spurs fan moaned about never being able to hold onto a win and compared us with Keegan's Newcastle where they would need 4-5 goals to beat the other team. Do people genuinely not see that that is a thing of the past, take it how you want but holding on at Old Trafford like we did was an incredible feat that no-one has achieved in an age. If we dominating all game, I would not be saying this, but the resolve we showed defensively must have surprised even the most optimistic fans!

I've also seen an enormous improvement in set pieces, we are scoring goals from them now....that being the main difference. Now, granted, we have better offensive headers in the game now with Jan the man and Steven Caulker, we also have players who are willing to hit the ball beyond the defensive front man. So this one I will concede defeat and say that Harry may have done better with the current crop of resources. I still think we look more organised on offensive set pieces under Andre, we just seem a bit more aggressive in the box.

The final one, the big one, changing how we play. Quite simply put, as previously mentioned, if we didn't win under Harry, we were almost definitely unlucky. Unlucky that Defoe was a greedy little so and so and shot from a 20 degree angle instead of squaring Bale for an open goal, unlucky that Bale whipped 5 perfect balls across the line and Defoe was inches away every time, unlucky that King was injured. We're not any more, any one remember screaming at Bale, Defoe et al to pass the ball instead of shoot? Has anybody noticed the increase in square balls being played this year?

I think Lennon was the only player selfless enough to play it under Harry. I'm normally open to discussion, but this time I'm not, this is an article of praise and appreciation for where we have come from and where we're going (if people quote that and say we were 4th and we're going down the pan, you are the awful fans who see we had the most shots on goal and thinks we should automatically win, stop looking at figures and tables, you all poke fun at AVB for doing it....) So please guys, add to the list of positive things that have changed for us this year. All hail AVB!
