Spurs 1 Burnley 1 – Match report

Image: SpursWeb

If nothing else playing at Wembley has confirmed the spread of Spurs support in London. I live in the east end and have been very pleasantly surprised by the sight of the yid diaspora making their way across town by different routes on match day afternoons.

I hope the sight of our Gods personifying human fallibility in this game won’t be enough to put them off coming again, I wouldn’t bank on it though.

In the first half our passing and tempo was as stodgy as the available food and our speed in attack several notches below those serving said stodge. Our finishing on a par with Mayweather’s.

The second half was a brighter affair mostly due to Dele’s goal forcing Dyche to be a little more ambitious. Our goal was scruffy but we’ll take anything. Burnley coming out of their shell enabled us to create chances, plenty enough for Kane in particular to put the game’s result beyond doubt but that would be too easy of course.

Burnley are never straightforward opponents for us and though their equaliser was late, we’d had a few warnings before then. Hugo saved athletically at his near post and then came off his line to win a tackle with Wood (?) that would’ve left the lumberjack with an empty goal to aim at if things had gone differently. The big lad got another chance at the death and that was it, a point each

Personally I don’t think there’s a need to panic. We’ve seen this crabby ineffectiveness before, remember Leicester and indeed Burnley last season? Poch knows what to do to fix it.
A return to three at the back will help and presumably that’s what we will see once all the signings are in place.
A week off and then Everton.
