Well it happened, soccer returned for Spurs. Nothing too long report wise on this one, far too early to make a fair and reasoned assessment, nonetheless, a few points to discuss.
Defence at times looked shaky, once more our mistakes handing the oppo the upper hand in and around our own box. Easy to see how we finished 1st in the top 5 leagues in Europe for defensive mistakes leading to goals. Work still to be done, but early days under a new coach.
I thought Rose looked a lot more assured, could it be because he was concentrating more on his defensive duties? If so, this part he did fine, maybe next we could see a happy unison of defence and attack from Danny, heck, even a few decent crosses.
I mentioned the other day that I thought Ceballos and Falque could well break into the first team this season and feature at times, last night sees myself retain that belief. I thought both were exciting to watch, played without fear, and were more than happy to take an opponent on, exciting times ahead for these two I feel.
In fact I thought all our youngsters did well, some surprised me with their pace (Fredericks if I recall correctly), some with their trickery. What about Fryers run down the Left, I've never seen him at pace like that, he was quick. Holtby was his usual workmanlike self and did no harm putting his case forward for a starting berth in the prem, kept it flowing and looked to pass quickly. Talking of passing, how much did that pitch affect our passing game?.
Looked like our intensity had upped compared to what we witnessed at times last season, numerous times players hunting down the oppo in numbers, as a unit. We still looked short of numbers in the box at times when in attack, and I'm still trying to work out what Lennon's position was 1st half.
Anyway, as stated far too early to be negative, I'm guessing we can all name one or two who could have had a better game, I will refrain for the time being. Happy to see the youth waiting in the wings, reminding myself that the Sounders currently sit top of the pile in the MLS and we gave a good account of ourselves, and more than ever, happy that the lads are back playing, leaves me knowing only one thing. Prem football cannot be that far away on the horizon...Or is that Soccer?.†
