Spurs win.

Spurs beat Birmingham 2-0 yesterday.  Clearly the result is more important than the performance as our performance was rubbish especially in the first half.  We still play too many sloppy passes and Jermaine Jenas is one of the main people to do it.  However he works exreamly hard for the team.  Wherever the ball went so did he and he produced a great ball for the second goal.

Defoe also did well, especially in the second half and I really hope that Jol stcks with him and Keane for our next game leaving Mido, who apparently had an injury but I heard something different, on the bench.  Well done to Lennon as well who did well second half and took his goal very well.

Dawson played a massive part once again and looked better than King did yesterday.  Important win.

COYS!

It was nice to see Stephen Kelly at RB instead of Stalteri, as well. I hope that continues.

Defoe seemed to realize (or be told) at the half that he needed to do a little more work. He looked much more energized in the second half and the effort he showed in creating the first goal is something he has lacked most of this season. I hope that Jol keeps Defoe and Keane as the starting pair next week.

I think he was very concious that MJ was ready to substitute without hesitation if the ever crucial 2nd goal wasn't forthcoming.

Kelly wasn't any better or worse than Stalteri. The answer is that they're both 2nd string punters.

Watch the transfers in the close season and Dawson & King will remain but there's gonna be s shake up in the defence.

this site has gone right downhill. shame really, cos it used to be a lively discussion forum.
lets hope the idiots stay away and good discussions can continue.
as for the result yesterday, at the business end of the season, its points that matter - so well done spurs.
i thought kelly played well, couple of games and he'll be good. daws was awesome.
well done lennon.
defoe - needs to play for 90 mins not just when he wants to, looks a bit rusty but to be expected.

You're right, I don't think JJ brings much to the team except from his constant runnings...but in terms of going forward, he does this only a few times during a match. He's proved in the past that he can do that effectively. As for Edgar Davids, I think that Murphy should get a chance to prove his worth, especially at home. Davids is not as effective as he was early in the season. Let's just hope 3 more points will be in the bag next monday....COYS

One big factor of our mini "slump" was due to the form of the senior players.King looks a little out of sorts recently and was culpable for some of the goals.Less said of Salteri the better.Our legend the bitbull looks looks more like a silky terrier recently.
Thank heavens for people like Dawson and Keane.
Its a shame that some have let thier heads drop at the run-in but hopefully we can get some useful results prior to our killer. fixtures coming up.
Looking at the fixtures, we can do it and clinch the 4th spot but the momentum must be pick out now before the game against Man U.
For that to happen , salteri must be banished to siberia and Defoe kept in the team.
I don't buy the idea, the big man small man formation has to be our best option because, we can't always play the ball on the deck.
Wigan used sharner, their midfieid man as the target man to great effect againts us recently; we can use Jenas in the same way.
Our atacking strength and our most potent weapons are the skills of Keane and the explosive finishing of Defoe.
Defoe shows what he can do in the 2nd half when he is in the mood.
With Defoe and Keane in the team,opposition that push their defensive line too high up, would be absolutely murdered exactly what happen to Birmingham. Lennon, Keane , Jenas and Defoe are our best avenues for goals when they attack the defence and not with their back to the goals.
When we use Mido, the formation allows the opposition to put pressure on us from the midfield, which was exactly what happened against blackburn and we are not very good at winning the ball back when we lose it. Its no coincidence that Lennon looks by far our greatest attacking threat last Sat. We must used his stength and not that of Mido's as ourt first option.

You could fault Jenas for his concentration power, his courage during tackles but you can't argue that he had scored 5 goals for us from midfield and was instrumental in some of our goals in recent matches.We must used the boy's strength and there are good things in his game.Including his free kicks.
He is not good protecting defenders in the wide right or left and was as culpable for Chelsea last minute goal as was Salteri.
But when he runs against midfield from central or wide positions, he is one of the best.We must used as a central attacking midfielder but potentially the best man in that position for me is Danny Murphy.I would used Murphy on the left and replace the out of sorts Davids for the next few matches.

Anom 4.57am back here again.To have a "expert" support to my arguments to the small/small partnership upfront.Please read following article from David Pleat in the guradian website. At least the man has real management experience.

you're talking rubbish.

David Pleat is a quiff owning kerb crawler and frankly if you think I'm logging onto anything to do with the Guardian you must be on middle class right-on love drugs.

Seriously though, I would have never supported Spurs in the first place if they wanted to play football like Watford did under Graham Taylor, which is to say big hoof up to the target man.

Absolute rubbish. We play Push n' Run at this club, class balls to class players. Mido has great strength in the air but we're not changing our whole style of play to accommodate it.

Were you at the Wigan game? It was a disaster. And not pretty to watch either. Wher's Robb kicking it now???? Oooh look, it's going to Mido!

Also, and this is the killer - the system you and The Pleatster suggest marginalises Defoe. Or are you one of the brain surgeons that advocates we sell him to Liverpool?

No thanks. And I really don't care about Pleat's management experience. Maybe you wanna send him a card for his birthday,.... I wantto watch us playing CL next season.

umm tink you've got you're wires crossed as you're both advocating the use of keane + defoe?! well pleat was saying how they worked well etc, if you saw the diagram drawn for pleats comment i (dont like to say it) but it was actually how we shud be playing football. the forwards drawing out defenders which allows crisp passin an use of the wings to allow the central midfielders to attack the space left by the forwards / defenders.

anyways. up the spurs. 3 points is all dat matters with every1 else winning and winning welll..

That goes also for 10.35am...you are talking rubbish as well...I'm SAYING (out loud) that I'm FOR the defoe/keane combination.

I'm NOT advocating selling Defoe...yes a brain surgeon is required and it is for YOU !

I KNOW that the Mido option is BORING...please read carefully before you start shooting out your mouth..

I saw the remaining fixtures for oursleves and our closest rivals Arsenal and Bolton.

I see the next 4 games as very vital for our CL aspiration.If we can build up a head of steam, its up to Bolton and Arsenal to do the chasing and the pressure is on them.I see (if we do very well) 10 points from those games...wins against West brom, Man City and one away win and draw either against Newcastle and Everton.

7.13pm...agree with you...If we do get that 10 points from the next 4 games, assuming Bolton and Arsenal slipped a little.I'm hopeful that we go into the Arsenal game 5 points above them...okie thats's optimistic but still possible(if you want to you compare the remaining fixtures).
If we managed to hold them to a draw at least(which we must and should), as the gooners are odds on to win their last 2 games against Sunderland and Wigan.all we need to secure is 2 draws againts Bolton and West Ham to clinch 4th spot.
See how incredibly important the next 4 games is so that the pressure of the run in is on them and not us ?
