We did ok but still lost ,why , still no cutting edge ,the killer bit, we never stopped trying but there has to be an end product. So priority has to be a striker and mid- fielder, might get through with Riise and Briggs at left back , center back if possible Lescott would be ideal we are still weak in that slot, but well done some fight was showing and we cant knock it but to be one up and just give those goals away to a team who don't score to often c.o.y.w

Come on you couldn't have asked for more effort and commitment than we gave (were you there). Spurs are a better team man for man than us even when we were at our best! We were beaten by a goal that should have been ruled out for offside that was a shot that went through more legs than a centipede and that Stekeleberg didn't see and a worldy for which no one can legislate. Christ, the team gave their all (even Berbatov) and if we play like that every game we will be ok. Cut the boys some slack you got your way with Jol now just look on the positive side for a few games - JEEZ.

MST I'm with you all the way. We were mugged by Spurs (not for the first time, I remember Walker I think it was not only handling the ball but almost making love to it and no penalty given)
We outplayed them in every area and their first goal should have been disallowed for offside but with Clatengberg as ref you don't expect anything else. Why are the refs these days the worst ever in the English premiership?
Berbatov actually put in a bit of a shift for most of the game. 100 percent effort but lacking a bit of class. We may have left it too late to survive BUT if we continue as we did on Wednesday we have now at least a chance.
No more moaning lets get behind the team and spur them on.

I never said there was no effort, there was, plenty of it, but you can see quite clearly where we need change, one game cant alter the fact we do need an striker of note (if possible )we do also need a new centre back ,left back again it was one game Riise did fine but with 24 games to go will he keep up the standard we now need.?
