Sunderland v Tottenham

Postby Conner99 » Tue Apr 03, 2012 8:31 pm

Sunderland ended Man City`s perfect record at home after they came away from the Etihad with a 3-3 draw , it could have been so much better though after going 3-1 ..manager Martin O`Neil said " We performed brilliantly and should have won , we are dissapointed ...a draw feels like a defeat really...but you have to give credit to Man City " .



Tottenham moved back level on points with Arsenal after a 3-1 win against Swansea at White Hart Lane ...it ended a 5 game winless streak for Tottenham ...manager Harry Redknapp said after the match .."cor blimey Guv ...wicked result ...yeah ...right behind the Arsenal now..have some of that Arsene .."

It is hard to predict this game, Spurs on the come back trail and Sunderland showing good form under the O'Neill man (I am a Celtic fan so I'll always have admiration for him). My heart says 1-0 to Spurs, my head says 1-1. No doubt about it Spurs need the points more than Sunderland, so I'm hoping that will be the difference that produces a win for the whites.

I think Spurs will win this, though Sunderland did Man City over last week - I just feel that Spurs are gaining some momentum now and will just be too much for Sunderland to handle.

Spurs will probably be 3rd by the end of the weekend.

Spurs could be back in 3rd on Saturday night if they win away at Sunderland and I think that will be the case.

Sunderland 1-2 Tottenham

I think people are writing off Sunderland too swiftly - sure, they've had a couple of blips of late, but the Stadium of Light has never been a particularly good hunting ground for us.

I'll be happy with a point. I am hoping Arsenal slip up v City to keep us in the chase, but I doubt many people predicted Newcastle steaming up the rear.

2-2...

Personally, one point might not help much, I feel.
Although, Sunderland is not my favorite team, but they are pretty tough at home.
However, they have no place to go, who knows what team may show up ?

Ok boys, let the show begin.

If Sunderland wins today, they go above Liverpool & Everton.
Amazing, isn´t it ?

from the first 15 minutes i just cant see the winning this game. tottenham is totally dominating with 75% of ball possession. on top of that, the penalty wasnt given to them either.

Well, so far not much to cheer about, apart from the longest back kick by Ekotto.

well, the only they can hope for is to earn a coner or a free kick on a rare break or counter and then to try to benefit from an eareal cross into the box, thats all. fortunately to them, they do have the guy who makes the pretty dangerous crosses.

As an Arsenal fan I'd take a draw here. Sunderland are of course capable but if I had to pick a favourite it'd be Spurs, I think you've picked yourselves back up from your poor little run.

Well, some say, most likely Arsenal´s ballet dancers are more exciting than this game today.

Result

Saturday April 7th

Sunderland 0 - 0 Tottenham Hotspur

Spurs go back above Arsenal into 3rd place after earning a point at the Stadium of light.

Any comments on todays result?

It was a poor match in my view and Tottenham could end up dropping out of the top 4 in the next week or so.

Well, knew this would be a tough assignment. With the posession and chances we should have won, but hey, the football gods fart in my face again :(

I didn't see SPurs getting a result in this one! Would have preferred a loss of course ,but a draw was the best that Spurs could get out of this game.
