Spurs vs Man City...The Report.
Right, a bit different for this report guys and gals. Gonna be short and sweet with a few questions for you to ponder.
First things first, Man City are a very good side, blessed with talent throughout the team that would not look out of place in any top European club, please remember this. So, here goes. City outplayed us for vast parts of the game. Being realistic, we were outplayed. Like it or not, money can buy success. Dzeko could have scored 4 or 5. Was Sherwood right to start Bentaleb over Capoue? Walker is now not only gifting attackers a headstart, he is failing to get back and make amends. Do you agree?. Why yet again does nobody mention the amount of key players we have missing through injury?.
It continues...How was it I knew that once the commentator mentioned that Jovetic had not scored for City, that he would against us?. Mentioned before, ducks are broken against Spurs so often. Why was the Linesman so poor?, No penalty and good goal. Some say it goes full circle, debate away on that one. It ruined the game. What about the formation, are you happy with the way we set up?. Do you think Rose could get his red overturned on appeal? I think we should appeal, perfectly good tackle with the player hitting Rose as opposed to him taking the player out.
Enough of the headwarp, let's get back to a little bit of happiness and the positives we can maybe take from the game. Lloris' save was a beauty, yes conceeded goals, but that was some save. Eriksen, well last couple of weeks he's come on leaps and bounds with his delivery. His corners were brilliant, something we've not witnessed all to often of late from our team. We will have four of our own players who can also warrant a place in any top European club about to return, sprinkled with a few more options in Lamela and Townsend to name a few. In fact the level of player that City keep on the bench in reserve. Toughness of the task becomes more apparent when this is considered. Chelsea drew with W.Ham, We did Arsenal no favours (Negative into a positive).
The same as you guys and gals, i hate it when we lose, this however was to a team whom I honestly believe will win the title, blessed with World class talent throughout, backed by endless funds, with dodgy decisions and a sending off to boot. Apologies for the less than informative article, decisions aside, sometimes we just have to bow down and acccept that we are not yet at this level. Whether that is a money issue, wrong signings issue, or a fundemental problem within our mentality affecting performances is open to debate. Whatever the reason, let's try and regroup, knuckle down and move on. After all, we all support Spurs, what else are we supposed to do?.
