Close, but no Hoorah

In the light of the slightly more watchable, mildly for-filling display that took place at the Lane on Sunday lunch time, I’ve woke up this morning with a slight air of ambition and regained a controlled portion of expectation in regards to the direction that this Barclays Premier League season might drift.

As I’m sure is the case with the majority of us Spurs fans right now, I find myself both scratching and pulling the hair on my head whilst trying to understand AVB’s wild thought processes. However, I think yesterdays result and performance may have triggered something, AVB is close. Let me explain.

Prior to Sunday’s clash, the week was tough. Reading bundles of negative press that surrounded the club following that ugly day that occurred at the Etihad. I think everyone learnt a few things post slaughtering in Manchester; our beloved club captain doesn’t possess the quality we require to reach the heights we could/should reach; KABOOM, unless 100% fit and enjoying a consecutive run in the starting XI poses a potential liability, Super Jan needs to play at the heart of our back line, the two Brazilians refuse to complement each other when playing side by side and finally we MUST play to our strengths; speed!  AVB, from what I’ve seen, however, IS, at long last, appearing to absorb feedback and make changes accordingly.

Sandro has to play, the husky tactician knows that, as does Mousa, Eriksen’s knock as unfortunate as it may seem, catapults Paulinho into this higher roll that we witnessed him play yesterday, and play extremely well in my opinion. Our manager got that right I feel.

I’m also sure that AVB is aware of the importance that the return of Danny Rose possesses, Dawson out, Vlad and Jan to come forth and re lay the bricks that have started to crack of late, Danny to slot in at full back.

Chadli, despite making no direct mistakes, certainly didn’t frighten Smalling enough for me, Townsend would have. We have two wide players in Aaron Lennon and Andros Townsend, hand crafted perfectly to bring this current Spurs campaign to life. Lefty on the left, Righty on the right, back to basics.

AVB is on the brink of figuring his strongest side, I can feel it. A run of good form is on the horizon and were all aware what that brings with it. Squad morale, Wild title talks, outrageous transfer rumours.

We travel to the Cottage on Wednesday evening, 3 points is essential, lets get this ball rolling.
