The Tottenham Internationals.
The Spurs lads didn't do anything wrong. That is about as much as I can conjure up from last nights borefest.
Tripps was solid, but not spectacular, Dier did well and showed a Captains composure and didn't take risks, but didn't make many (any ?) mistakes I can recall - I'll watch the recording today and maybe my view of all this will change.
Danny did better, but again did nothing that got my blood racing - getting the game time will certainly improve his conditioning and fitness.
So, so far, so good - 50% of the way through this duo of almost pointless games.
It occurs to me that 'pointless' is harsh; the good news is that it gives our players time to get over knocks/small injuries and prepare for the Gooners.....
Maybe it does have it's good sides after all?
After the game last night I had an 'extended' dinner and drinks with a real Tottenham legend, but absolutely promised not to name him, anyway he voiced an explosive possibility about Poch, which I'm only this morning trying to digest and decide how (IF) I can break this...
- When the head clears, I'll keep you all posted.
Ok, had a chance to watch the recording now, and with the fog all but fully lifted from my head:
Danny, was as I said OK, but he did make an early glorious pass which Abrahams probably should have put away - pity he didn't, if he had it might have been a totally different game. Don't know why I forgot that this morning!
Tripp, did keep up his cool crossing, which is his hallmark now - I'd scrubbed from my head somehow his big miss early doors..
Eric Dier, as far as I'm concerned he got better/more composed as the game wore on, but did make one horrible pass straight out and did make a really good one/shot that one of the Germans beat away.
Early night now - so hope you all have/had a good one.
If ANY of you have anything you want to get off your chest in an article, I'd welcome the contribution...!
